Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

Subject: HELLO FROM LINDA I LOVE YOU.
Hello my dearest Saudi Arabia,
Thanks for your response and your interest in reading from me, I have had the oppotunity of going through your mail and I just have to express my desire and happiness in finding a man of you kind. I believe and have the real understanding of what and how people insearch of real
love should relate to each other.
The tune of your response tells me that you are my type of man and the one that my heart desires for a long term relationship. Just for wanting to know me more expresses your desire to know more about my person. Some people think and feel that a relationship based in a situation where the man is the head of a family, is a thing of the past but I sincerely think it is a way of life for a progressive family.
This is my pic hope you will like them. I am presently leaving in Dakar Senegal under the custody of a Rev Father as a result of civil war that destroyed our home country liberia. His church has a larg camp and in this camp, it's just like one staying in the prison and i hope by God's grace i shall leave this country to a better home possibly to your country if you would be interested to help me come over to join you.
I don't have any relatives whom i can go to, all my relatives that i know ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Rev Peter Simon who is the pastor of the Church situated in Dakar, he has been so nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am staying in the female hostel because the church camp has two hostels one for male the other for female.
The Rev's father phone number is (00 221 5865230) if you call me, please tell him that you want to speak with me so that he can send for me in the hostel. We do not have the privilledge to official activity be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country. I want to further my education because i stopped at my third year in the university before the traggic incident that lead to my being in this situation occured.
My late father was a politician in my country before the rebels attacked our home, my parents were killed. It was only myself that is alive and I managed to move into a peaceful country called Senegal where I am staying as refugee in the church camp, I don't have their residential
permit to move freely or to secure a job because i lost my passport. Life has not been easy since all this while, people are being persecuted, displaced from their homes, subjected to in-human treatment, we don't have access to clean water, no access to good education, no freedom of association etc.
Have you visited an orphanage/motherless babies home near you before? I am expect a phone call from yousoon, I appreciate you so much. I do not have enough chance to chat because alot of people wants to use the computer and there is only one computer in the camp located in the office of the Rev. that we all use to send mails.
Please send me your photograph, i don`t care about your age because advanced men are more caring and more romantic than the youths. Most advanced people does not have much worrying them because their first issues must have grown to age as well,
I want someone that will always make me happy because death does not select or come by age, there is no guarrantee that the older party will die before the younger one. Therefore i am very confortable with your age. I am looking forward to getting a telephone call from you through Rev's phone number + 221 5865230
Note that our country international dial code is ( 221) and i well like to see your pics.
Love greetings from
