Another Internet Scam: From Loritta Nhiany Al Majid

Loritta Nhiany Al Majid
Hello Dearest

My name is Loritta Nhiany Al Majid from Sudan in North Africa . I am presently residing in the camp as a refugee here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country as you can see from here

My family history, My late father Engineer Noni Nhiany Al Majid, a petroleum engineer by profession. He was the managing director of a petroleum and gas company called Nonican Petroleum Ltd in Sudan. He was also the former minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources during the earlier regime of President Omar Hassan .

Unfortunately the rebels attacked our house and killed all members of my family while in school. And after the burial, I had to run away for safety with the help of the United Nations Refugee to Senegal.

While leaving Sudan, I collected my family vital documents including banking information and death certificate of my father. Right now, I am looking for a good and reliable person to entrust them with who will manage them for me to enable me finish my university education. I am only 24 years of age and I need a help. So if you feel that you are reliable and can be trusted, please response to this so that I can give you full details on how to help me with huge amount kept in the bank by my late father.

The amount deposited with the bank is US$5,600,000.00 and my name was used as Next of Kin. And since I do not have the the privilege to operate bank account due to my refugee status and when I contacted the bank, they advised me to get a foreign partner who can stand for me as trustee to receive the money . It is because of this I contacted you to help me receive the money. And part of the money will be use to take care of my university education.

Dear i tried to contact the bank if they can transfer some money for me to get my papers from here and move to Europe but unfortunately' I did not know that my late father signed an agreement with the bank that the money should not be released directly to me if i am not married or up to 30years.That is the time i went through the agreement deposit certificate and know the meanings,The agreement states that I should appoint a trustee/investor any time I want to take the money from the bank before I am 30 years. I understand that the investor is to invest and manage the money for me in a good business.

So l will like you to help me receive this money to from the bank into your bank 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. If agreed I will offer you 25% of the US$5,600,000.00 and kindly provide these information to nominate you to the bank as my trustee to receive the money for me.

1. Your Full Name
2. Contact Address
3. Telephone Number
4. Occupation
5. Date of Birth
6. Nationality

As soon as I have all these information I will forward it to the bank and also give you the information of the bank account for you to contact them and make the verification you said.

In case you want to discuss with catholic reverend father, Rev Fr Lonic Bogo, his telephone number 00221771181948 and his email address is [ ]. In case you want to call, Remember to ask of Loritta Nhiany Al Majid the girl from Sudan, when you call me. Tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in our hostel to come and answer you call. When you call back in about 10 minutes I will be there to answer your call.

Finally I attached my picture for you to know who I am and would like to have yours if possible.

Yours lovely,
Loritta Nhiany Majid
