Contacted me through a false profile in match which could not be accessed. Said she¦s looking for a husband in Mexico because it is a great country to raise a family. After only a few weeks she was already in love with me. She wanted to visit me, but in order to do that she needed 700-750 euros for a travelers insurance. The insurance was needed to get the visa, and I could not buy it for her, I HAD do SEND the money so she could buy it there.
Only the third email and already she's in love with me. Glad this site is here. I know from reading the post she is a phony and really a guy. Hasn't asked for money but I know it's coming. I mean, who falls in love THAT fast? This image was also posted here: Dating scammer Goodwill Ajaratu

I received your mail, how are you today, hope you are doing fine, if so thanks be to the almighty God. Am very happy to tell you all about myself without exception which will interest you. The following information is my purpose for seeking a God fearing, sincere and trust-worthy foreign business partner who will legally act on my behalf, hence after going through your profile I decided to choose you for this purpose.
I am Miss Lillian P. Edwin, the only child of Captain Edwin Jonathan (The Senior Security Adviser to vice president John Garang) from North Sudan . My father was a top member of the People's liberation Army which fought one of African longest-running wars between the Christians, animist south and the Muslims of Arab-Speaking North.
After a peace agreement was signed between my father's group and their counterpart president Umar Hasan Al Bashir. The war officially ended and my father was appointed a senior security adviser to the first vice president, daddy held this position for only 3 weeks and he was set up and killed by a gun shot in a plane crash along with his bosom friend (Vice president John Garang) and the 12 others on their way back to Sudan from Uganda, dated 30 July, 2005. Before they were killed, little did we know that Umar Al bashir is the master-minder of their death? Then, I managed to escape for my dear life and ran into Lome Togo where my daddy's wealth is.
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 Domiciliary US Dollar account with Citi Bank. Now my dear, this information I revealed to you is my life, and I believe 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 Citi Bank of London .
So i need your assistance to help me claim and transfer this money into your company or private bank account in your State and as soon as the Citi Bank transfers the money into your bank account, you will use some of the money to get me a lawyer/s to fight for my case and get me out of here, then the same week of my release, you will send someone to pick me up from here or you will fly down here by yourself and I and you will depart to your home in your country at once for investment of my money and continuation of the best life there. Upon the declaration of your interest I will email you with the contact information of the International Remittance Department of Citi Bank of London , and provide you with any necessary document needed for you to claim the money on my behalf. The documents are with me here. They are right in my bag.
And I will be very glad to also have detailed information about you.
After going through your profile I decided to contact you to assist me claim and retain the money in your City for investment. I will compensate you reasonably after the transfer. I have decided to give you 10% of the 9 Million US Dollar for all your assistance.
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.
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 document'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...
Let your heart and goodness be guided towards me.
Remain bless and good health

I just noticed something. The post made here 008-04-26, 09:00:10 anonymous from United State wasn't signed properly. The post was made by me. Sorry people. Shows what happens when you get in a hurry. Anyway, When she asked me for money to pay her internet bill I replied that with so many scammers out there I would like to get a nude picture of her. This morning she sent me THREE! Not to worry Admin. Peter. I won't post them here. I respect your wishes about that. After all, children 13 and 14 can access this site. I know it's a scammer though because I have seen the same pictures like the one above on a porn site before. Just don't remember which one. The moral of this story? Even if they send something like I got don't send money. After all, the nude pictures can be stolen just like the others.

How are you my Dear, hope all is well with you.
Firstly I thank you for your response to my email; Inline with my message I sent to you through the dating site, Do not be surprise or get offended for receiving this message from me, It just that I have been obliged to lay a mere trust on you due to my situation here in the refugees camp.
Let me first of all reveal my self to you, and I will require the best of your honesty after your knowing about me and whom that I am, I will really like us to have a good relationship in spite of anything because I have this feeling that you are my man and you will not betray me,
I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here and after reading your profile which will attract every reasonable woman. I am Miss, Sindy Adama Alluzo. I am 25 years old girl from Sierra Leone , the only daughter of Late Adama Alluzo. My father was a business man, he deals on oil importation and exportation to many countries, during the crisis in our country, my step mother arranged the rebels to come to our house, so they wanted to abuse my mother in the present of my father, so my father refused them to do that so they killed the whole of my family including my only junior brother but I succeeded running away.
I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment I am receiving from my step mother. She planned to take away the entire treasury and properties of my late father from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father; she has been trying by all means to kill me.
Meanwhile I wanted to escape from Africa to any where in the world but she hides away my international passport and other valuable travelling documents. Luckily she did not discover where I kept my father's File which contains important documents. So I decided to run to the refugee camp where I am presently seeking asylum under the Private charity organization for the Refugee herein Dakar , Republic of Senegal .. I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship that may lead us to somewhere better if we work well on it.
My father of blessed memory deposited the sum of (US$6, 800, 000.00) (Six Million Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars) in a Bank with my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you with the necessary documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund, you will help me in an investment, and I will like to complete my studies, as I was in my 1st year in the university, when the crisis started. After the transaction you will arrange for my trip joining you over there for us to share this feeling face to face.
We will invest the fund me and you, or if you don't intend staying with me then it will be my pleasure to compensate you with 5% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only for confidential purposes.
As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this relationship and transaction sincerely.
I will be waiting for your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this only to your self please I beg you not to disclose it to any body till I come over, once the fund has been transferred.
