Some are too good to be true, whilst some can are pretty convincing. By the time we are aware,money and some valuable information are already in the possession of the perpetrators. DON'T be a victim of internet scam or 419.

It is with profound respect and humble submission, I beg to state the following few lines for your kind consideration. I hope you will spare some of your valuable minutes to read the following appeal with sympathetic mind. I must confess that it is with great hope, joy and enthusiasm to write you this mail and I believe by the faith that it must surely find you in good condition of health.
My names are Miss. Salimata Omwony Ojok, Ugandan Citizen, female, age 23 years old. I`m the daughter of Late Mr. Omwony Ojok, former minister for state in charge economic monitoring. My father died in the Intensive Care Unit of Mulago Hospital due to suspected heart failure. I lost my mother longtime ago when I was just 6yrs old, and since then my father took me so special.Before the death of my father, he told me that he made a fixed deposit of the sum of Four Million, two Hundred thousand United States Dollars( 4.2Million USD ) in one of the Banks in Burkina Faso with my name as his next of kin. I have travelled to Burkina Faso to clear the money but the bank manager whom I met in person told me that my refugee status is not authorised by the laws of Burkina Faso to clear the money. He advised me to appoint a trustee.
Now, I am Soliciting your help for transfer of the money into your bank account and investment assistance in your Country. I have suffered lots of set back as a result of my parents death. I left Uganda because of incessant family feuds. Presently, I am living in Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso. Hence, I want to settle abroad to continue my studies and spend the rest of my life. Please consider my request as my life is being hugely affected . I will send you the telephone number of the Church Mission where I am presently staying should you want to talk to me on phone.
Thanks in anticipation of your prompt response.
