Hello Dear
I came here to look for my second half, my soul mate, my friend. It is
interesting to tell about myself to you, as I haven't seen you ever before.
But I feel something inside. I feel like a little sign of hope that I am not
doing this in vain. I feel that you have the friendly soul to mine.
What I want to find is Love. Yes, Love from the big letter. Love demands
everything to present yourself, your soul to the other person. I want to
do this. I want to learn you better. If you want the same, I will be very
glad. I want to meet you and spend life with you together. I want to comfort
your heart with tenderness and care. Maybe our souls belong each other.if
you want to find that you, please write me here ([email protected])
hugs
LINDA
I will
be waiting to read from you soonest

IP = 41.208.164.220 = Senegal

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THIS TYPE OF SCAM

This scam has a romance element - whereby a scammer is "pretending" to be a young girl - and will send stolen photographs in an attempt to appear legimate. The scammer will most likely "pretend" to be all alone, parentless (they died recently and tragically) and is in now in a refugee camp, where a "pastor figure" allows "her" to use a PC to mail the victim.

The scammer will mention a fortune (cocao/cash/diamonds) ect - and request you to mail "another person" - same scammer or scam partner - lawyer/banker/barrister - who will need some fee paid before the "imaginary" riches are transfered to the victim.

The scammer "pretend" girl - will fall in love with you and plan to travel to you - and live happily ever after with "her" knight in shining armour.

It is all lies - scammers always lie - all they care for is the money they hope you will wire to them.

Delete and do not reply to this and other scammers peddling the same/similar lies


Further mail from this scammer;

Hello My Dear
How are you today together with your health which is the most important thing to me and your night hope 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 of the weeks. Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by God grace i will come out here soon.
I don't have any relatives now whom i can run to all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person whom i have now is (Rev father Peter Poul ) who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) 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 telephone number to reach me is (+221-777-121-956) Call me today i will be waiting for your call my lovely honey. 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.
Before my father died he made his final WILL and i am the beneficiary of his WILL. In accordance with paragraph 8(ii) of his last Testamentary Disposition as directed by him, my daddy made me his Next of Kin to the sum of 9 Million USD$ in his Domicilary USDollar account with ( Royal Bank of scotland Plc.) Now my dear, this information i revealed to you is my life, and i beleive you will never betray me, this is as regards the distribution of all sums standing in his name in his USD Savings and Current Account with ( Royal Bank of scotland Plc.) i hereby seek your hands in partnership for a reasonable compensation of 20% of 9 Million for your effort before commencement of investment.
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 you.I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows about it is the Revrend Father because he is like a father to me since i have no relactions any more. 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.
Since my being here I have been watching the situations to avoid any one not to know about me for the sake of my safety, My father warned me before his untimely death that on no condition should I disclose this to anybody in Sudan. with this warning I had been having sleepless nights since and have refused to even disclose this to the church camp where I am presently for fear of being harmed or kidnapped .I have resolved to tell you this information in confidence to know if you can help me arrange and receive this money into your account by standing for me as my fiancée or foreign partner. I believe it will be easier for me this way in order not to expose too much my Identity and also able to get out of this country. If you can do this for me, I will be very happy.
Then I will send you the necessary information's as I was giving by my father... On what to do in this regard with due respect. I will also need you to give me your full names, home address and personal telephone number so that I can call you at least to hear your voice..
Note/ Considering my situation and problem presently there is nothing i can do to help myself than to trust somebody, and to trust somebody is by choice, you are my choice of trust and i see nothing wrong with the choice i made in you. that is why i revealed all about me to you. i took time to write this letter over-night before typing it to you today so that you will see my problem, team up with me to claim the money on my behalf and apply seriousness in the investment and management of the money as i earlier told you.
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. My favourite language is english but our language is Aribic 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. Am waiting to hear from you soonest.
Let your heart and goodness be guided towards me.
Remain bless and good health
Linda Edwin
