Dear loved one,
I am more than happy in your reply to my mail.How was today?.
Mine a little cold here in Dakar, Senegal.
My name is Miss Awa Jenifer (21) single and never married, I am from Liberia in West Africa and am currently residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago.
My late father Dr Wilson Awa was chairman managing director (Awa INDUSTRIAL COMPANY LTD) in Monrovia, the capital of my country, and was also the personal advice to the former head of state before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and father in a cold.
It's only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a nearby country Senegal, where I am now living as a refugee.
I would like to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and what you are doing presently.I tell you more about myself in my next mail.
Attached here is my picture.
Waiting to hear from you as soon as possible!

I must say that you are a very beautiful young lady, and I would very much like to see more of you.
I am very sorry to hear of your parents. it must be awful for you to have gone through that and to be living in a refugee camp.
My name is John, I live in ***, and I have my own business. I am 46 years old. *** (Family situation removed that was too close to reality. It was John's first bait.)
Please tell me a little more about yourself, and what you are looking for in this correspondance, and I will tell you more about myself.
I hope to hear from you soon.

I am more than happy in your urgent reply to my mail.
How is your day? hope all is fine.?.
Mine is a little bit hot over here in Dakar Senegal.
In this camp we are only allowed to go out only on mondays and fridays ofb the weeks.Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.
I don't have any relatives now whom I can go to all our relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person I have now is Rev.Frank Ousene who is the pastor of the (Church of God) 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 women.
The Pastors Tel number is (+2217-6494-3815 ) 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 which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $2.7M(Two 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 Revrend 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 it. and i will like you to send me your,
1 Your full names and country name
2 Your phone and fax unmber so i will know whom i am dealing with.
Remember 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 hardworking.Please age is irrelivant to me and i believe in love.
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.
Awaiting to hear from you soonest,
Yours in love Jenifer.

It seems like you have quite a situation there. I might be willing to help, but what's in it for me?
Apparently nothing, because Jenifer never answered.
