I nearly Got scammed by a Senagal girl by the name of goodness Mabou who claimed that her father was a doctor in England and he died leaving her with a sum of 6.5 million $. She had asked me to help for she is in a camp in senegal and she needs me to get the money and send her some so she can come to SA and be with me. She claimed that she loves me from the first day when we had chat on COOLTOWN which is a social networking system and being an intellectual that I am, I so it fit to google the Reg. no of the bank which was given to me and it led me to this site.....Reg: No scb C74741B...apperantly it reveals that i was being robbed by an unarmed person. These are her Letters:
ello Dearest one ,
How are you today?.I believe that you are doing well.i am happy to raed your mail this morning..i am writing this mail to you with tears and sorrow. Like i told you in my first mail that My name is Goodness mabou from Ivory
Coast in West
Africa.Presently i am residing in the refugee
camp here in Dakar
Senegal.as a result of the civil war going on in my country. I am 24 years old
girl 5'9' tall.My late father Dr Patrick Mabou was the personal advicer to the former head of state (Late Dr Robert Guei) before the
rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed him alondside
with my mother.It is only me that is alive now and i managed to make my way to a near by country Senegal
where i am living
now Please I will like to know more about you. Your likes and dislikes and what you are doing presently.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 Gods grace i will come out here soon. I don't have any
relatives now whom i can go to as all my relatives ran away in the
middle of the war. The only person i know here is Rev.Pastor Stave Johnson
who is the pastor of the (CHRIT DE SAVIOR Christian
Church) here in the
camp, i live in the females's hostel because the camp have two hostels
one for men the other for women. The Pastors Tel number is (00221-761337752) if you call, please tell
him that you want to speak with me so that he will send for me in the
hostel. call 3pm gmt today please.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 tragic incident that lead to
the death of my parents took place. Please listen to this,i have my late father's statement of
death certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because
when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank
in Europe which he
used my name as the
next of kin,the amount in
question is $6.5m usd (six Million five Hundred Thousand Dollars). 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 your place for a better life. Please my dear,
do not think about it that it is too early for me to tell you this,
because any one that is is this kind of situation, will be looking for
a help in any where. 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. 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. 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 hard
working. My favourite language is also English..Meanwhile i will like
you to call me like i said Call around 2pm gmt time. i have a lot to

I am more than happy of your reply to my mail. How is your day today? My name is Vera Gukama 24 years old single and never been married, i am from Rwanda in Africa and presently residing in the Ndioum refugee camp here in Senegal where i am seeking political asylum due to the civil war that was fought in my country. I am suffering here in this camp and i really need to have a partner by my side to encourage me and give me good advice in life and help me to come out from this situation.
I am writing at this hour because of my status as a refugee in Dakar Senegal
And I am an orphanage child, as a result of the assassination of my parents by rebel group which left me with no one except me that survived by the help of Red cross team that brought me to Senegal .And my father was the then attorney general of the federation and justice minister of Rwanda that made him a well known man in my country and his involvement in politics he lost his life together with my mother He deposited
5.7 million .us dollars in UK .and I have written to the bank to claim the money as the next of kin because of my deplorable condition in Senegal and the bank replied that due to my refugee status that I am not qualified to claim the money that I have to look for a reliable foreign partner to help me in the transfer that is the only condition the bank gave me.
And now I want to know if you are honest and reliable because if I lose this money I will suffer all my life on earth and I will not finish my education anymore so be honest to me if you will betray me please tell me ,and I want you to treat this with the absolute confidence and hold it to yourself without somebody knowing for my safety.
If you are able and honest to help me please reply back so that I will give you the bank information for immediate contact.or you call me with the Reverend number +221-76468-4255 his name is Stephen Desmond he is a Pastor here.
My name is Vera and my father's name Dr.Paul Gukama so let me know how you will help me out of this plight.
Bank name :Co-operative Bank Plc

Mention it is almost a system in how she open her first sentences
1. First is she HAPPY to get in in touch/reply (she like often the words happy, but not necresarry)
2. Then do she ask how your mod is.
3. Last in this order (of this around 3 first openingsentences)do she tell who she is. Often done in one sentece do she tell her name, age, where she lives/or who her father is.
She prefer to be 24 y.o., and often also mention together with her age that she have never been maried.
This system of order in system can we probelly find on other scammers as well, and it can give us a indication to connect it to Mabou or her friends/workers: But since I mention this system or order here, must we be ready for other to copy her or she change her system of opening her letters.
I have afther putted my mail here on delfifaq got more lotteryscams, so I guess that is why Ghana read delfifaq. They belive al users on delfi is easy targets. Mention that most members of Delfi do not send money anymore before they have confered with other members - and most users of this page think scam as soon as they see the 2 letters WU, or sick mother.
