how was your day ??? I hope and pray this mail of mine will meet you in good health
i came across your mail and i decided to contact you because of my present situation, i am staying in a private charity organization under St Johns Church here in Bobo-Dioulasso Burkin-Faso and i pray that God will touch your heart to understand and give me your helping hand
i am miss, Roda Mohamed Atif, 24 years old, a medical student, my father of blessed memory by name late Mr. Mohamed Atif 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
you can find more of my story through the following site on the net
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 making a decision to look for somebody to help me, it is better to trust you than to die in this place,  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 Burkin-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 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, please contact me through my private email address at
please i hope to have your picture and your phone number and other information about you so that we can talk through phone and i will also like to hear your voice
thank you and God bless you
sincerely yours,
