    Can anyone help this woman ?

    I received this email and am wondering if everyone here can help this woman:

    Dearest One,
    Thank you very much for responding to my request. How are you doing today?, i hope all is pretty fine and the atmospheric over there is brighter. My name is Julie Maxwell. I am from Rwanda in East Africa. 24 years old, 5:8 inches tall, Single (never married), fair in complexion with black hair and brown eyes. I speak English very well.

    I am presently living in Senegal due to the political crises (Civil War) that occurred in my country few years ago. My Father ( Dr. Simon Maxwell) was the managing director of Steel Industrial located at the Capital City of Rwanda (Kigali). He was also once a special adviser to the former head of State on Commerce and Industries. My dearly father, mother and younger sister were brutalized and killed one early morning by the rebels who set attack on my father house due to the Crisis. I was the only one that survived the attack and I managed to made away to Senegal where i am leaving now as a refugee (United Nation Refugee Camp) under a Reverend Pastor's care and i am using his computer to send these message to you.

    I don't know any of my relatives whom i can go to now because everyone ran away in the middle of the war. The only person i have now is Reverend Patrick Divine who is the pastor of the ( MISSION SAVIOR CHURCH ) here in the refugee camp. He has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him, rather, i am leaving in the woman's hostel because the camp have two hostels, one for men the other for women.

    The reverend's Tel number is ( +221 763841311 ) I will like you to reach me on this number, if you call, tell him that you want to speak with me and he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilege to any thing, be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this camp. The refugees here are not eligible to go out of the camp unless there is permission from the camp authority. Here is just like someone staying in the prison, but I believe by God's grace i will extricate here soon.

    Please do not be offended for this message that come's from me. I communicated to you due my difficult situation here in the refugee camp. I obliged to put simple trust on you due to my situation and I am demanding most of your conscientiousness to know about me. Off course, we never meet before but i went through your profile as i am searching to find a help and i was encouraged to contact you because your profile tells me how responsible you might be and i have faith that i am communicating with the right person.

    I wish to share the most of my secret to you but i plead you to remain responsible and transparent to me as your profiles convinced me. It might sound surprising hearing this from me. It is a matter of urgency and i plead for your immediate intervention to help me. I am keeping faith and courage that you will remain responsible and honesty to me and by God grace, you will not betray me.

    My father deposited a certain amount of money in one of the leading bank in London (Royal Bank Of Scotland) when he was alive. My name was used as the next of kin when the deposit was made. The amount deposited in the bank is six million, seven hundred thousand Us Dollars ($6.7million). I kept this secret to people in this camp here, the only person that knows about it is Reverend Patrick Divine because he is like a father to me. I am afraid to loose this money if bad people gets to know about it. Please, keep this information to yourself.

    In light of the above, i will like you to help me claim this money from the bank. I have already make an attempt to claim it but the bank refused to release the money to me due to my refugee statue. They recommended me to appoint a relation, trustee or foreign partner who will stand on my behalf. Please i want you to help me transfer this money to your bank account over there in your country so that after the transfer, you will send me some money to do my camp clearance and secure traveling documents and come over there in your country for a better life. My wish is when i come over there in your country, i will go back to my studies because i was in the first year of my studies when this tragic incident occurred. You will as well, help me to protect and manage the money in a good business. I have my fathers death certificate and account statement, i will send it to you on your acceptance to help me.

    Please tell me if you are ready to help me so I can go on to pass the account information to you. And I want you to send me your full name, contact address with telephone number for easy communication and please do not betray me when you receive the money, i believe this transfer will be properly handled by you and you will help me to manage and invest the funds in your country after transfer.

    The attached are my photos, i will send you more in my next mail. Also, i want you to tell me more about yourself with your photos.

    Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you. I like honest and understanding people, truthful and someone of vision, truth and hard working. Meanwhile, i will like you to call me after reading this mail okay. I will be waiting for your call. Have a nice day and think about me.
    Awaiting to hear from you soonest
    Yours Dearly friend,
    Julie.

    100% scam.

    There is no sexy, young, cute orphaned 20 year old trapped in a refugee camp with constant internet access who desperately needs a foreign partner to help her access the millions her father left in the bank just before he died.

    There is only a MALE scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money by using a fake story, stolen pictures and pretending to be several characters.

    The next email was from one of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "minister/banker/barrister" and has demanded you pay for made-up money transfer, document, certificate, stamp and bank fees, in cash, and only by Western Union or moneygram.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    If you google "fake next-of-kin scam", "fraud inheritance Western Union scam", "fake Senegal Dakar refugee scam", "fraud romance scammer" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.
