These emails from Senegal are supposedly in response to a dating site profile or similar - but will also be sent to people who do not have any online profile at all. They appear to be from women looking for a loving relationship. Subsequent emails will most likely explain that they are orphans and/or refugees, with millions of inherited dollars in a bank account that they are unable to access. They will, therefore, need your help, and will offer a share in the money if you have it transferred to your own bank account.

In order for this to happen, you will be introduced to their pastor, banker, or lawyer (or all three), and various fees will be required. Sometimes, if a lack of interest is shown in the transfer of the money, the 'refugee' will instead suggest you 'help' with money for a passport or visa or travel or other costs to enable them to leave the refugee camp and/or start a new life.

The writers of these emails, however, are not orphans or refugees with an inheritance. The writer is nearly always male, pretending to be female (though they may have a female friend or relative who can pose as the writer of the emails, should you wish to speak to them on the telephone); and there are no millions of dollars. They are instead telling you an invented story so that you will be motivated to send them money. It is a scam.

Welcome Rascalguy!

What you have posted is another perfect example of this type of scammer. The "distance or colour" line is an incredibly common feature of the Senegal-based scams.

Do you have an IP address for this one? If you don't know how to show full headers, let us know and we can help you.

How are you today?
i am very happy to your responded to the email i sent to you in your address at the site.I am Miss Grace Ubar. Age 23. ft 5/6. wt 59 .i am the only daughter of Late Dr Patrick Ubar from Ivory Coast in west Africa, who died during the war in my country (2003). My father was the personal adviser to our former head of state .(LATE GEN ROBERT GUEI) he is the owner of Ubar Cocoa industrAies(LTD) before he was assasinated along side with my mother on a cold blood one morning. But i managed to escape for my dear life and ran into a neighbouring country,(Dakar) the capital of (Senegal) and i am reciding there now as a refugee.in the refugee camp. Meanwhile,I am writting to you now in at Revrend's computer and will like to know you more before we move forward from here!
thanks

U will receive some of d pictures of d girl with this...
#24589 by Arnold Sun Mar 21, 2010 6:11 am
That's a typical scam too. The West African cocoa business is almost as dangerous as the Columbian cocaine trade. :D
The IP address in the email's headers will show where the scammer is, and if you can tell us who you use for email, we can tell you how to view the full headers.
