He claims to be a US soldier.

Here is an email from the fake refugee camp chairman

Email address: ghafricarefugee.chairman@gmail.com

Dear XXX

My names are Dr Ben Mensah,African refugee chairman for you already know me..
Well, still surprise why you called and ask of that Gaius Okazi in the refugee camp because there is no such name here,i even went as far calling other camps in other country since you made mention of David petraeus but still no trace.

Well, am writing to you this email irrespective of a boy,also since you added on your text to contact you in-case i should need anything.
well this is not me actually but a refugee here in the camp that has a very urge amount of funds $2.5musd precisely and want a foreign investor to help him invest the money on a profitable business and someone who can also stand as a Guider's to further his education.

This funds was a result of a retirement of his late father and unfortunately he was the only son and next of kin of the decease.
the funds has been deposited in a security company in a consignment box for a very long time now because the boy was much young as at when the father pass-out and now the security fee is over due because nobody has been paying for it since the boy is very tender.

The security Management are planning to take over the possession of the funds if the boy or relative do not come and claim there consignment box of money which there are no good relative of such
only the bad ones who connive and adding to the death of the father and the boy in question is still very young

So i want you to please help this boy to put claim over the box of money so that it can be transferred to you and you sending money down for the Air fee of the Young Boy to your country.

Please madam,this only is how you can help me(this young boy) and note that all documentation regarding this transaction is intact that is if you need any.

Please think about this positively and help this Boy
Regards
Chairman

Another email from the scammer pretending to be the refugee camp chairman

Good Morning XXX
Regards from Africa,Ghana to you and your family.

I do apologize for not been able to get back to you yesterday with the necessary details/document regarding the consignment box,its due to some protocol that i must undergo before the security could give me any detail and before i finish,it was already too late for me to do anything.

Protocol like seeking permission from the decease Barrister and some other legal hands.

Well,at last i succeeded in getting what i needed and attach to this mail are some important details/document you will find interesting.
Please go over them and get back to me as soon as possible and please,i will advice you keeping an absolute secrecy regarding this transaction because disclosing this to a third party might jeopardize the entire transaction,

So Please check and get back to me as soon as possible

Regards
Ben Mensah
Africa Refugee Chairman
