Your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and what you are doing presently.
I will tell more about myself in my next mail.

Listen up guys... this is an interesting read outlines hotbed activity in West Africa and a typical scammer interview. Take heed !
Online scams create 'Yahoo! millionaires'
In Lagos, where scamming is an art, the quickest path to wealth for the cyber-generation runs through a computer screen.
(FORTUNE Magazine) - Akin is, like many things in cyberspace, an alias. In real life he's 18. He wears Adidas sneakers, a Rolex Submariner watch, and a kilo of gold around his neck. Akin, who lives in Lagos, is one of a new generation of entrepreneurs that has emerged in this city of 15 million, Nigeria's largest. His mother makes $30 a month as a cleaner, his father about the same hustling at bus stations. But Akin has made it big working long days at Internet cafes and is now the main provider for his family and legions of relatives.
Call him a 'Yahoo! millionaire.'
Akin buys things online - laptops, BlackBerries, cameras, flat-screen TVs - using stolen credit cards and aliases. He has the loot shipped via FedEx or DHL to safe houses in Europe, where it is received by friends, then shipped on to Lagos to be sold on the black market. (He figures Americans are too smart to sell a camera on eBay to a buyer with an address in Nigeria.)
Akin's main office is an Internet cafe in the Ikeja section of Lagos. He spends up to ten hours a day there, seven days a week, huddled over one of 50 computers, working his scams.
And he's not alone: The cafe is crowded most of the time with other teenagers, like Akin, working for a 'chairman' who buys the computer time and hires them to extract e-mail addresses and credit card information from the thin air of cyberspace. Akin's chairman, who is computer illiterate, gets a 60 percent cut and reserves another 20 percent to pay off law enforcement officials who come around or teachers who complain when the boys cut school. That still puts plenty of cash in Akin's pocket.
A sign at the door of the cafe reads, WE DO NOT TOLERATE SCAMS IN THIS PLACE. DO NOT USE E-MAIL EXTRACTORS OR SEND MULTIPLE MAILS OR HACK CREDIT CARDS. YOU WILL BE HANDED OVER TO THE POLICE. NO 419 ACTIVITY IN THIS CAFE. The sign is a joke; 419 activity, which refers to the section of the Nigerian law dealing with obtaining things by trickery, is a national pastime. There are no coherent laws relating to internet scams, the police are mostly computer illiterate, and penalties for financial crimes are rarely enforced
'What do you want me to do?' Akin asks in pidgin English, explaining why he turned to a life of Internet crime. 'It is my God-given talent. Our politicians, they do their own; me, I'm doing my own. I feed my family - my sister, my mother, my popsie. Man must survive.'
The scams perpetrated by Akin and his comrades are many and varied: Moneygram interceptions, Western Union hijackings, check laundering, identity theft, and outright begging, with tall tales of dying relatives and large sums of money in search of safe haven. One popular online fraud often practiced by women (or boys pretending to be women) involves separating lonely men from their money.
Attempts to speak to government officials about Internet crime were futile. They all claimed ignorance of such scams; some laughed it off as Western propaganda.
Some officials, who asked not be identified, said young people are drawn to Internet crime as a way of getting back at a society that has no plans for them. Others see it as a form of reparation for the sins of the West.
Or as Akin puts it, 'White people are too gullible. They are rich, and whatever I gyp them out of is small change to them.'

I am very very happy to see your reply to my mail .
How are you today? How was your night, hope fine? Mine was a little bit hot over here in Dakar Senegal. In this camp were we are not allowed to go out of the camp It's just like one staying in the prison and i hope by God's grace i will come out here soon.
I don't have any relatives now whom i can go to, all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Reverend Father Greg Eduw, who is the Rev Father of ( St.Mary's Catholic Church) here, 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 hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women.
The Rev Tel number is ( 00 221-764 904 704 ) When you call tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel.
As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilege to any thing 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.
Listen to this i have my late father's statement of account and 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, so far this life is concern one man knowledge or idea can never make a real seance or direction until he or her meet the one who have a vision conscience and fear of God in him and higher and matured than him or her in knowledge and divine wisdom , because in life you cannot move forward unless you seek for him that is higher than you in wisdom,knowledge and
understanding of this present life i believe by the fear of God and his divine conscience that is in you the i entrust my hope and my future in your care i know that God will use you to make a way for me remember being white or black doesn't matter but one good turn deserve another be a light for others for them to see through you. this is the amount in question is $4.5M (Four 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 meet with you.
I kept this secret to people in this camp here the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.because i am afraid to loose this money if they gets to know about it. 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 deposited on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking.
My favorite language is English.
Mean while i will like you to call me when you have chance, Because i have a lot to tell you.Have a nice day and think about me.
Am waiting to hear from you soonest
Yours forever in love

DO NOT BECOME VICTIM TO THIS TYPE OF SCAM AND SPAM!
The recovery efforts which were given by caring people, to actually aide anyone who
truly needed help... has been used and abused by scammers and spammers for personal gain!
This included photo shows the origin of such greed mailings.
Although the scope and impact here is seen through individual actions,
DO UNDERSTAND THAT; The intrusion of large organized crime elements are at work!
28 group businesses were launched; and 128 individual businesses were established. The businesses created included beauty salons, cellphone kiosks and Internet cafes
Can nationally shared recovery benefits be gained through emerging internet cafes?
The questions of who and how? Beg to be proven! The nature of the internet doesn't
supply the average domestic person's daily needs for food, clothing and shelter.
You can safely believe me and other Delphi Contributors when we tell you;
Behind these photos and mailing, there are NO HONEST PEOPLE,
who are ready, willing and able to make you wealthy!
This type of benefit is only used as a personal ATM!
This is EXTREME ABUSE on all levels of human errors!
BOTH THE HISTORY OF SAHARAN MILITARY CONFLICTS AND A CURRENTLY PROFESSED REFUGEE STATUS
FOR THE INTENTION OF DECEPTION AND PERSONAL MONITARY GAIN THROUGH INTERNET SCAMMING HAS
THE EQUAL OF CONTINUED INTERNATIONAL CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY THROUGH MIS-REPRESENTATION!
