My dearest friend,
I believe as you read this email you will discover the need to assist me.
I am sure you would hardly expect such mail from me since we are just new friends. I am forced to do this because of my difficult situation and after reading your email, I decided to let you know everything about my life because I believe it is God's Will that makes me to know you after doing some prayer and I am ready to relocate to join you if you can accept me with all your heart.My name is Susan, from Uganda and I am 24 years old. Daughter of Late Dr. Wilfred Oti of the blessed memory who worked with Ugandan High Commission in Canada, United Kingdom and Ugandan embassy in Senegal respectively. I was born into a Christan family that cherish the principle of proper child up bring but death never permit me to enjoy the comfort of my family, all the same the lord knows the best.

I lost my mother three days to my 19th Birth Day on 15th October, 2004 in a rape incident that claimed her life in attempt to save a rape victim. It was after the death of my mother that my father resigned his appointment and went back home but there after he realized that my country Uganda is not free because of the rebel treat to the government from the Northern part of our country and he decided that I should go back to Senegal and continue my education. Tears will not let me go back to the events that took the life of my father when I least expected and that exposed me to life of struggle for survival for what I did not bargain for but such is life. I have learn to accept and face the challenges.I am alive writing you today was by the mercy of the good lord because I am to be in Senegal as I didn't go back home for a vacation during the time of the Last Rebel attack in my country which took place on 14th June, 2005 that caused the death of my elder brother, relatives and my father sustaining a serious bullet injuries in his stomach..

After the incident, my father sent for me through his Lawyer of which I arrived Uganda and meet my father lying down critically on a sick bed in hospital. He was flown with other senior citizen victims abroad. my father was able to tell me some important things about him and instructed his lawyer to hand over some documents to me which he did. He also release some amount of money to his Lawyer to be passing it on to me subsequently as the need for it would arises for my studies and welfare.
On 26th September, 2005 three months later my father gave up the ghost and was buried. I took some money from the lawyer and travelled back to Senegal. After some time in Senegal and I needed money to pay my school fees and for other things, I tried to reach the lawyer but could not and all the efforts I made did not yield any good result and when it becomes certain that I can not reach the him anymore, I decided to seek asylum in Senegal. I was taken to the camp of United Nations High Commission for Refugee in Dakar - Senegal from where I am staying now.

Among the documents I received was the deposit Bond Certificate with the sum of £ 2.8 M ( Two Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds ) my father had with a bank abroad which has my name as his next of kin. Due to my father's wishes during the time of deposition, the Bond indicates that his next of kin can only come for the money in the Demise ( Death ) of the depositor when she reaches the prime age of 25 years or through an appointed trustee/representative.

But I am now saddle with the problem of searching for a reliable and trustworthy person capable of assisting me to claim and safe-keep the fund in his/her custody as the Bank said that they can not deal with me directly due to my refugee status here.
so please I will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you will send some money to me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over to meet you and continue my life. This is one of the reasons why I contacted you after going through your profile and my spirit accepted you.

Please tell me if you are ready to help me and I will go on to pass the account information to you. And I want you to send me your full name, contact address with telephone number for easy communication and please do not betray me when you receive the money
I believe this transfer will be properly handled by you and you will help me to manage and invest the funds in your country after transfer. I like honest, faithful and hard working people. In all I thank the good lord for giving me the opportunity to have someone like you.
I hope to hear from you soonest and have a nice day.
with much regards, Susan.

I was just scammed by 2 men from ChristianCafe in the past month. One claims to be Gary Russell, and the other Franke Borje, Gary was in Dubai finishing up a 3-year contract and was going to move back to the states with his son to start his own business. He scanned a $360,000 check so I could see he had gotten paid and then asked me for a 'loan' until he arrived. I refused. He tried again a week later claiming he needed $400 for his son. I again refused. 7/30 he phones me and told me to watch for a package. I received an envelope with 5 money orders for $985 each from 'his uncle' in Texas. The address on the envelope was actually a church address. He IM'd me and told me to cash the money orders and send him $3000 and I could keep the rest. I told him no that this was a typical scam and he claimed I was hurting him, blah blah blah. He finally disconnected when I refused to agree to cash them. I called moneygram and all 5 money order numbers had been cashed in April and May of this year.

The 2nd man, Frank, was a mineral resources agent from Sweden, who was living in GA. His wife and son had been killed in a car accident about 18 months ago. He has an 18 year old daughter with him. He claimed to have fallen in love with me shortly after IMing and would feel so hurt when I wouldn't tell him I loved him too. After a couple of weeks he got a contract with some jewelers and had to go to Ghana to buy his gold for the contract. His laptop suffered a breakdown and he was wanting me to buy one and send to him. I told him no and he got upset. He IM'd me tonight after I did some research on this site.

I acted all glad to hear from him and asked him if he wanted to hear about my excitement. I told him about 'Gary'. He told me I did the right thing and he was glad I didn't fall for it. This is priceless...I told him I had been doing some research and did he want to hear what I found out. I then cut and paste a posting I found on here with all the same elements as what he fed me into the IM window and then told him to never contact me again. He 'thanked' me for accusing him of being a scammer and said it 'hurt'. He then logged off.


I am now investigating the name Kelvin. I just started corresponding with a Kelvin on a few days ago. He attended Manchester Univ in England and is an engineer and worked with Shell for several years. The day AFTER I get this information from Kelvin1, I get an email from a man named Walter who attended Aberdeen University, is an engineer and works on aShell Petroleum oil rig off the coast of Scotland! The 'uncle' who mailed me the money orders in the Gary story put Kelvin Price in the return address. So that's Kelvin2. Just this afternoon again, on Bigchurch, I get an email from a guy claiming to be yet another Kelvin, that's Kelvin3. So that is 3 Kelvins, 2 UK universities, and 2 Shell Petroleum employees in 4 days. Anyone else getting emails from Kelvins, or emails about UK engineering degrees and Shell Petroleum employees?

STAY SAFE!!!! The picture is what 'Gary' sent me.

Please understand no matter who contacts, You and no matter
what their story is if the story at any point includes Ghana, Nigeria,
Dakar, Senegal, Refugee Camp, Gold Coast, Ivory Coast,
All of West Africa. It is for certain a scammer.
It makes no difference what name, Your given as its fake.
The photo's are all stolen.
That sweet Loving Talk, You have been getting is from a Young Black
Man sitting in a Internet Cafe.
He doesn't care if, You live or Die as long as, You send money.
By, Your story the next thing, You should hear from, Your scammer
should go something like. Oh, My God, I was robbed.
Or how about there was a Horrible accident and needs money to
save the non existent boy and Girl or whatever.
Please stop this from going any further.
Your personal information is being gathered with every contact, You make.
Never send photo's of, Yourself, Never send Money to anyone, You do
not know. Someone on line is not someone, You know.
Never tell the scammer how, You learned the truth. NEVER !!!!!!!!!!
Never mention this web site or post, Your e mail address on this site.
If, You say anything to the scammer that, You know the truth don't
blame, Me for, Him lying even more and the chance remains, He
will convince, You that, He's not a scammer.
Try to keep in mind every single word that, Your told is a lie.
The scammer has no Moral Boundary, He won't cross.
He will use God Himself in a lie to convince, You.
Make a clean break from the scammer now.
Block, Him and do not allow any more contact at all.
I am telling, You this because scammers never stop.
You will still be hooked up to this liar and thief next year if, You
do not end it and block, Him completely now.
I know of many woman who for some strange reason stay hooked up
to their scammers.
There is not even a slight chance that this is not a scam.
If, Your the kind that will wait around for a exact match in information
I feel sorry for, You.
Scammers use many e mail addresses, they change their fake names
all the time, They have hundreds of stolen photo's.
More importantly there is not one single person on line from West Africa
that is not a scammer.
You can listen to me now and believe me now or, You will find out

I hope, You end it now before, Your Hurt very badly or, You lose
everything, You own.
I have tried to warn, You now its up to, You.
Remember even if, You end it today the very same scammer will keep
trying to scam, You using another fake name, another e mail address,
more stolen photo's, The Works.
Blocking a scammer only slows them down a little.
You need to learn how to spot a scammer on, Your own in less
than a second. Please take the time to learn now.
Your going to need to know from now on.
They have, Your information now.
You are nothing but a Mugu [ Big Fool ] to them they are, Your Master.

' feel like such a fool as I should have listen to my head instead of my heart. We met on a dating site and he, (says) is a retired major general in the USA military currently doing votuntary work in Iraq - wanting to settle in Melbourne where is was born, have photos of him in uniform. About 2 weeks in to our chat he says he found gold bars amongst the torn buildings in Iraq and asked me to receive them as the military will not ship it out of Iraq. He said it was all legal and that the Iraq official has signed the documents saying he is the rightful owner of such. I said no way and chatted on. Next chat he told me that a diplomat courier will take the bars out of Iraq for him but at this stage he has no access to his funds and asked me to send $1200US to the courier so he can fly over pick it up and take it out of Iraq. I have not yet heard of scammings, red flags, warning signs and being new to the dating site....I hesitated but gave in and hence kept sending money regarding these gold bars. It was kept in a security company in ACCRA and to make a long story short I ended up sending money for: insurance, deposit of keeps, documents etc to secure these gold bars for him. He kept saying he would not do anything illegal to tarnish his position or to hurt me etc etc etc and how he wants to be with me and my children, how we can do things together and loves me etc etc and virtually just taken over my life and feelings, I was totally into him by then but still had an uncertainly feeling about him. The long shot of all this is he was working with another scammer (in Accra) and said he had finished his duties in Iraq (3 months later)
and was now there to collect the bars. He was so convincing and even said he got robbed and stab and was adnitted to the Holy Dove Hospital in Accra. At the end he needed $4,000US before the security would release the bars to him. I said I don' have anymore money and said he should be able to get hold of his own funds but he kept to his story of unable to access his funds till he signs himself out of the voluntary program in New York. Of course by this stage I was totally convinced in believing everything he said and how much he wants to be with me and my children, and how we can live a wonderful life etc and that this was the last stage in getting the bars out and then fly to Australia to be with me. Anyway, he said he will wait till I get the money together and we chatted like best friends. All this time I didn't feel right about him and asked him to email me another photo of him by the pool (this is in his hotel). He hesitated strongly but did email another photo of him in civilian clothes by the pool and said he decided to do it so my children and I can still trust him - it's still the same person as in the photos he emailed me earlier and the one on the dating site. As the last lot of money was sent to him under his scammer friend's name (like all other funds) he said he would fly out the same day as soon as he collects the money. When I asked for his flight details, he says he won't know till he checks in at the airport and from there he will email me all the details and will call me on my cell phone when he arrives in Melbourne....thus the end of the story. But I did manage to track down the other scammer because he used his real name to collect the money. From here where and who can I report these scammers'
