Another Internet Scam: From Nicole Moses Akumi


how was your day, i hope everything is well with you?

i decided to contact you because of my present situation, i am staying in a private charity organization under St Johns Church here in Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso and i pray that God will touch your heart to understand and give me your helping hand

i am miss, Nicole Moses Akumi, and i am a girl of 24 years old, a medical student, my father of blessed memory by name late Mr. Moses Akumi who was the a manager with CNPC oil company at the Khartoum refinery in Sudan, was killed along side with my beloved mother and our family house burnt down by the rebels during the last crisis in my country

i am now writing you from Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso where i escaped through road, and now seeking asylum in a private charity organization under St Johns Church here in Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso, you can find more of my story through the following site on the net

bbc news

so i am now in search of an honest and reliable person who will help to relocate me in any of the western world for a better life and to continue my studies, i have chosen to contact you after going through your profile and i believe you are a reliable person who will not let me down or betray my trust

i know 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

i have the sum of $5.2 Million as an inheritance from my late father which i will like to invest in your country with your help, the reason why i need your help is based on the instruction my late father gave to the bank to release the fund to me at the age of 24 through a foreigner who can help me to invest the fund wisely, and it has been my father's desire for me to marry a foreigner, so the bank will not release the fund to me without the help of a foreigner as my father instructed the bank

this fund is deposited in my late father's bank account with one of the banks here in Burkina-Faso and i am going to give you all the details / contact because i want the money to be transferred to your account before i come over to join you in your country, I will compensate you with 15% of the total fund and you can also help me to invest my own part into any good business, I want to finish my studies because I want to be a doctor so that I can contribute positively to humanity, i need your urgent answer of your ability to handle this for me so that i will tell you the next step because i want to leave this refugee camp as soon as possible, life here is to me a hell, no love, no affection and no amenities, more importantly, i love my studies and here nothing is happening and people here are not friendly, i am really suffering in this place, it is too painful, but i hope with your help to transferring the fund in your account, i will have a better life to live

so kindly let me know your readiness to help me and i promise to always be nice and faithful to you, I will glad to compensate you with 15% of the total fund for helping me, and you can also help me to invest the fund while I continue my studies because I want to be a doctor, it is my desire to contribute positively to humanity

i will send you my photo and i hope to have yours and your phone number so that we can talk through phone and i will also like to hear your voice

thank you and God bless you

sincerely yours,
