Subject: HI DEAREST
I am more than happy for your reply to my mail. How is your day today? My name is Miss Joy Buba, I am single and never been married before. I am from Liberia in west Africa and presently residing in the N’dioum refugee camp here in Senegal where i am seeking political asylum due to the civil war that was fought in my country last two years. I am in suffering and pains here in this camp and i really need to have a man by my side to encourage me and give me good advice in life and help me to come out from this situation. My late father Dr . Col Johnson Buba was the chairman/ managing director of (TOURE INDUSTRIAL COMPANY LTD), in MONROVIA the economic capital of my Country, and he was also the personal adviser to the former head of state before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and father in a cold blood. It is only me that is alive now and i managed to make my way to a nearby country Senegal where i am living now as a refugee. This Refugee Camp is headed by a Reverend Father, i used his office computer to send you this email and i only enter his office when he is less busy in his office I would like to know more about you, your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and what you are doing presently. i like to meet understanding, loyal, sincere, trustworthy, kind, friendly and more to that, a man of vision and truth. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail. Attached here is my pictures, Hoping to hear from you soonest.
Yours Forever in friend,

Subject: HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU SOONEST
How are you today, l hope you are fine. My day is very boring over here in Dakar Senegal . ln this camp we find it hard to go out because we are not allowed to do so, its just like one staying in the prison and l hope by God's grace l will come out here soon. I don't have any relatives now that i can go to, all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Rev Father Joseph Dadah who is the Reverend Father of the (Christ the king Church) here in the camp he has been very good to me since l came here but l am not living with him rather l am living in the Female's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for Male the other for Famale. The Rev Father's Tel number is ( 00221 77 108 92 17) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel.
As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilege to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country. I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place. please l would like you to know that l have my late father's statement of account and death certificate here with me which l will like to send to you to assist me,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in the Bank which he used my name as the next of kin. The amount in question is $7.9(Seven Million Nine Hundred Thousand US Dollars).
So l will like you to assist me transfer this money to your account and from it you will send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you. I can't withdraw the money my self due to my refugee statues here in this country which does not permit me to, rather the money can't be transfered in senegal where i am in refugee statues. I want you to send me your contact informations such as your
Age .............................. .......
Bank Info ....................................
I have got in touch with the bank and made them to know about my plans to withdraw this money, l also got them aware of the death of my father and they have acknowledged it with all there confirmation. However, they advise me to get in touch with a very responsible person who will stand on my behalf and my trustee as regards to this money since l am presently of refugee status over here and wouldn't be permitted to handle this amount of money, they also let me know about the bond which they signed with my father that they money will be handled to me in bulk amount which means that l should decide on if l should continue with the bank or not.I just have to let you know about this so that you can assist me to be my trustee on this money. like l said l want you to call me because l have alot to tell you.l kept this secret to people in the camp here
the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me. Have a nice time and think about me.l hope to hear from you soonest.
Yours dearest Friend.
