Here are two scammers with a suspect amount in common. Although the names and emails are different, both are using same person's photos, both contact me on same site (4ppl) and was online at the same time, scam letters have only very small differences and a lot of common phrases, way of approaching the victim is the same. Even if it were a two scammers using same photos, should consider that they are rarely operating alone, instead groups/gangs. The link to another post:viewtopic.php?f=13&t=32706Drama in brief:

Like i said my name is Sandra Godwin, Am 24 years single tall and fair in complexion, very good looking girl that is very sharing, giving, caring and loving girl, above all God fearing and trusted. I really want to have a good relationship with you. A relationship of deep feeling that will construct a mutual understanding, I'm from ivory coast in west Africa and presently I am residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the civil war going on in my country.
My late father Dr Godwin.R.Attipoe, was the personal adviser to the former head of state of Ivory coast before the rebels attacked my house one early morning killing my mother and my father. It was only me that is alive now and i managed to make my way to near by country Senegal where we are living now in a refugee camp. I send and receive e-mails in the office of our Reverend Father, He has been so kind to me since i became close to him during one of his visitation to the clinic in the camp when i was sick. I would like to know more about you. Your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and what you are doing presently. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail.

Please darling i will like you to call me, i have a lot to discuss with you, and i will be very happy to hear your lovely voice today
Good Morning My Beloved Darling
How are you today my precious one? I Hope all is well and fine over there with you, how is your work, Mine is a little bit hot over here in Dakar Senegal, Just like i told you in my first mail that I'm from ivory-coast, but due to the war in my country, that cost the dead of my parents which made me to stay hear as a refuge, my condition here is terrible its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out from here soon, And 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 Reverend Mathew, who is the pastor of the (Christ the king Church) here in the camp, he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather I'm leaving in the female hostel here in the camp, because we have two hostels one for the men the other for women. The Pastor Telephone number is (+221 779 853 358) and his email: ([email protected]
) if you call tell him that you want to speak with Sandra Godwin, he will send for me in the hostel to answer your call, because of my condition here i don't have any right or privilege to some things be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.
I want to further back my Education, because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation took place. Please this is why i contact you, i have my late father's statement of account and his death certificate (as his next of kin) here with me, because when he was alive he My father secretly deposited the sum of (US$5.7 000.000) in one of the prime bank in London in custody of my name as the next of kin.. However, I shall forward you with the necessary information of the deposit on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund in your country. to see that this money is transferred to a good account and also to make arrangement on how i will come over and stay with you and continue my life and education. My choosing you is a question i knew you must ask and i think it is a good question. i have two reasons for choosing you, i choose you because it is the will of God, and i believe knowing you will bring hope back again in to my life, my choosing you does not mean that i do not have anybody from ivory-coast. I have two uncles, that is my late fathers junior brothers whom i think are suppose to be taking care of me but they do not care, all they did was to sell my late father's houses and company to one Mr Olson Steven from united states and enjoy the money with their wives. i wanted to tell Olson about this money, but i think they can kill me, and take the money from me, it was as if my father saw their deed because he told the implication of having a big money in Africa and that was the reason he made the deposit in Scotland.
However you can call me with the reverend office phone line, my favorite language is English but our official language favorite French, but i speak English very fluently because i attended an American and English speaking private school all in my country for almost all my school, i will like you to send me your pictures and also try to call me as requested so that we can hear each other voices,Please do keep this only to your self please I beg you not to discussed it to a third party till I come over to your country, i will be thinking about you so much, as i will be waiting to hear from you soonest,
have a wonderful day,
