The following scam mail is accompanied by pictures of a young woman who is I think a Nigerian actress.

I am Helena Mazoughi, a female, and I am 23 years old. I am from Libya, and
I am the daughter of the late Abdulrahman Mazoughi. My father was killed by
ISIS suicide attackers on December 25, 2018, when they (ISIS fighters)
attacked my country foreign ministry in Tripoli capital of my country.
Prior to his death, he was the spokesperson for the Tripoli Revolutionaries
Brigade. You can read more about news of my father's death here:

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/12/ ... 32649.html

And my mother alongside my extended relatives died a few months ago in the
ongoing Libyan second civil war. I am the only child of my late parents, so
I am alone in this world now. I am presently seeking asylum in the country
of Senegal. It's only by the grace of God that I managed to escape from my
country in the midst of all these crises.

Before I go on, I want you to know that I followed my intuition to choose
you. And please do not discuss my affair with you with any other person, at
least until after I join you physically over there. I want you to help me
receive my inheritance money from my late father and hold it in trust for
me. The money is deposited in a bank in the United Kingdom. You will help
me invest it in a profitable business after our success and when I join you
physically over there. The amount is USD3,500,000 (Three million Five
hundred thousand US dollars). You and I will co-own any business we may
invest the money in, and we will be sharing profit from the business
equally.

Meanwhile, I have been in Senegal for the past months now . I stay in a
displaced persons camp. The displaced persons camp is managed by a local
church, headed by a reverend father of the Catholic Church. The camp is
accredited by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. However,
the camp has strict rules and regulations which has made life more
difficult for someone like me who is from an affluent background. For
example, the authorities of the camp banned every asylum seeker in the camp
from owning phone, And the only possible means I can access the Internet
is through this computer in the reverend father's office and he allows me,
or any other asylum seeker, to use it for a few minutes per interval in a
day. Also, the camp authority usually gives us only one meal every day.
Living conditions in this camp is similar to life on the war front in my
country. In fact, I have been suicidal many times because of my terrible
living condition here.

Actually, the bank cannot release the money directly to me because of my
age and my present condition, which is the reason why they insisted that
they can only release the money to me through a trustee. More so, because
the government of Senegal banned asylum seekers, like me, from owning and
operating a bank account. I am in a very difficult condition. Help me make
my wish to live a worthy life and to further my education possible in the
future.

My best regards,
Miss.Helena Mazoughi
