Miss. Helena Desmond, 24 years old woman from the Rwanda, parents and siblings were killed by rebels during the civil war. Fled the country and found her way to the refugee camp in Dakar, Senegal. The late father (Dr. Philip Desmond) had been a substantial bank deposit ($7.6 million US dollars) with the English bank. Miss. Helena is the bank deposit's designated the next of kin (beneficiary). However, she can't withdraw the money from her late father's bank account. The financial governing laws of the Senegal states, the persons with the refugee status are not allowed to participate personally into any monetary transaction or to operate with a bank account overseas or locally. The bank had guided her to obtain a foreign trustee/guardian, who would claim for the deposit on her behalf so that the wire transaction of the inherited funds to the trustee/guardian's bank account would be possible. Trustee/guardian's commission and allowance would be 18%, rest of the funds would be invested in lucrative business. The trustee/guardian would obtain the travel documents for her so that she can re-locate to live over to him, resume her interrupted studies and start new better life.

She obtained the lawyer (Barrister (Dr.) Lukman Hayatu) to drafting the power of attorney and the affidavit of oath according to the bank's procedure of the wire transaction. Miss. Helena would sign the documents for the Federal High Court, lawyer would representing the trustee/guardian and sign the documents on behalf him. The costs of the Federal High Court and the lawyer's fee was totally €570 EURO and should been pay immediately via Western Union or Money Gram money transfer.

Dearest In Heart,

Thanks for your response to my e-mail, How are you doing today? hope fine and you are perfectly doing well in health. My name is Helena Desmond, I am from Rwanda in Central Africa. 24 years of old, 5ft 8inches tall, Single never married, Black hair and brown eyes.

I am presently living in senegal due to the Civil War fought in my country some years ago. My Father (Dr Philip Desmond was the CHAIRMAN MANAGING DIRECTOR OF DESMOND & SONS INDUSTRIALS COMPANY IN THE CAPITAL CITY OF MY COUNTRY (KIGALI), Also the PERSONAL ADVISER to the former HEAD OF STATE, before the rebels attacked our house one early morning & kill him & my mother, With My younger sister.

It's only me that is alive because I wasn't around when this happened, I was in the University where am schooling, am doing my first year in accountant, I then manage to abscond to following west African country (SENEGAL) where am residing now in '' REFUGEE CAMP''. Due to the problematic situation which am passing through here In this camp. We are not eligible to go out from the camp unless we took permission. Its just like one staying in the prison But I believe by Gods grace i will extricate here soon.

l don't have any relatives now whom l can go to all my relatives abscond in the middle of the war the only one l have now is Rev. Victor Paulson who is the pastor of the (Christ The Light 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 due to the camp have two hostels one for women & the other for men

The Reverend Tel number is (00221764974331) if you call tell him you want to speak with me, then he will send for me in the female hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any privilege to anything 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 tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.

Please listen to this, i have my late father's statement of account and death certificate here with me which i will send to you later, because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank which he used my name as the next of kin, the amount in question is $7.6M (Seven Million Six Hundred Thousand USDollars).

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 traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you. I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.

Regarding to the above i will like you to be confidential 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. Remember i am giving you all this information due to confident I confide on you. I like sincere, kind, respectful, honest and understanding people, truthful and a man of vision, truth and hardworking.

I love English language but I would like to know many other if God give me the opportunity but i speak English very good. However I will like you to call me because we still have a lot to discuss.
Attached below is my picture. I am seriously looking a nice person of kind heart in my life Thanks and God bless you, Looking forward to your urgent response & have a nice day.

Yours In Love,
Miss Helena

Hello Dear,

I am happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay. Presently I am in Paraguay for investment projects with my new partner with the total money. Meanwhile, I didn't forget all your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how, Now you will need to contact the Rev. father as at the time i was in Dakar Senegal, his name is Rev. Victor Paulson and his direct email address is ([email protected]) PHONE/NUMBER (+221764974331).

Ask him to kindly send you a certified bank draft of $450.000.00 which I prepared and kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter which later failed. I appreciated all your efforts at that time very much.So feel free and get in touch with Rev. Victor Paulson and direct him where to send or post you the bank draft.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share our joy after all the sufferings at that time. In the moment, i am very busy here because of the investment projects which myself and my new partner are having at hand. Remember that I had forwarded this instruction to him on your behalf, therefore establish contacts with him for the delivery of the bank draft to you without delay. Take care and remain Blessed.

Yours Sincerely, Helena
