|HELLO MY LOVE
How are you
believe you are doing fine,
I am more than happy in your reply to my
is a little bit hot over here in Dakar Senegal.
Its just like one
staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.We
don't have any relatives now whom we can go to all our relatives ran away in the
middle of the war the only person we have now is Rev.Christopher oga who is the
pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) here in the camp he has been very nice
to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the
women's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for
The Pastors Tel number is ( +221 76-86-97-503 ) 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 privilledge 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 traggic incident that lead to my being in this
situation now took place.
Please listen to this,i have my late father's statement of
account and death
certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was
alive he deposited some amount of
money in a
leading bank in Europe which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $6.7M(Six
Million seven Hundred Thousand Dollars).
So i will like you to
help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money
for me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with
you.I 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.
So in the light of
above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone for i
am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about
i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like
honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and
My favourite language is english but our language is
french but i speak english very fluently.Meanwhile i will like you to call me
like i said i have alot to tell you.
Have a nice day and think about me.
please i am waiting to
hear from you soonest
