Another Internet Scam: From Miss Aminata El-moiz Abunura

Hello My Dearest,
                       With tears and sorrow, I am seeking for your assistance; I know this letter might come to you as a surprise because we have not met each other or see face to face before. My name is Aminata El-moiz Abunura, Female 23years old an orphan, originated from South Sudan, East Africa.

My father of blessed memory by name late Mr. El-Moiz Abunura who was the President and Chief Executive Officer in Sudan Petroleum Company, SUDAPET at the Block 9/10, Resident 22/1Africa Street P.O. Box 13188 AlKhartoum 11111 Sudan, The brutal killing of my mother and my father, one kid sister and kid brother took place one early morning by the rebels as a result of the civil war that is going on until now in my country Sudan.

I am now writing to seek your assistance from Ouagadougou, Burkina-Faso where I escaped through the help of United Nation, and now seeking asylum in a private charity organization under St Paul’s Catholic Church, Ouagadougou, Burkina-Faso, you can find more of my story through the following site on the net ;BBC news

However, I have chosen to contact you after I have gone through your profile and I believe you are a trustworthy and reliable person who will not let me down or betray me when the fund will transferred into your custody, you may wonder why I am so soon telling you about all this, even without seeing or knowing you fully well, really something in me tells me that you are a good person and I guess I am not wrong. Briefly I will like to disclose little more about myself to you and see if you can help to relocate to your country so as to continue with my studies and have a new life, and please this is a little secrete and I plead with you to keep it to yourself alone until everything is properly arranged and executed, then I will come over to join you in your country.

However, before the death of my father he deposited a huge amount of Five Million Six Hundred Thousand united states dollars ($5.6M) in one of the Banks here in Burkina Faso in my name as his next of kin before the rebels attacked. It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment. The reason why I need your assistance is based on my father’s instruction, which he stated that before the bank release the money I must present a foreign trustee who will help me to invest the fund wisely, so the bank will not release the fund to me without the help of a foreign trustee as my father instruction.

Honestly this fund was deposited by my late father and I have confirmed from the bank manager that the fund is still unclaimed. Please get back to me if you are interesting by helping me, so that I will give you all the details /contact of the bank, because I want the money to be transferred to your account before I come over to join you in your country, I need your urgent answer of your ability to handle this transaction for me so that I will tell you the next step to follow for you to received the fund into your account without any problem, I am really suffering since the death of my parents, it is too painful, but I hope with your help I will have the fund transferred into your account, and I will have a better life to live in your country.

As soon as I receive your interest in helping me, 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 transaction sincerely. Please do keep this only to your self. I beg you not to disclose it to anybody until the money transferred into your bank account and then I will come over to your country.

Yours Sincerely,
