Fairytale of a Mutual Relationship With A Refugee

Posted in Found stuff by Type Tasting on July 4, 2010

This email was in the usual haul in my spam folder, but it caught my attention because it read like a classic fairy tale, complete with wicked step mother…

Subject: {SPAM} Mutual Relationship With A Refugee

Dear Friend,

My Name is Salma Abu Bakar Elsiddig Mohamed Hussein , 22 years old Girl originated from Sudan, I really want to have a good relationship with you, I know this mail might come to you as a surprise because you don’t even know me, but due to unsolicited nature of my situation, I decided to contact you for help, please bear with me, My late father was a sub contractor with Greater Nile Petroleum Operating Company Sudan and was killed alongside with my beloved mother during the last crisis in my country when Janjaweed militant came to our house, and that was what sent me away from my country as I made escape only by God’s special grace.

After the death of my  beloved father my wicked step mother and her secret lover sold everything that my late father had and eloped with the money, one faithful morning as I was cleaning my late father’s room I opened my father’s briefcase and found some documents which he used to deposit the sum of five Million United State Dollars.

($7,000,000.00) in SIAM COMMERCIAL BANK PCL Thailand with my name as the next of kin, I traveled to Thailand to withdraw the money so that I can start a better life and take care of my younger brother, On my arrival to the Bank the Branch manager of the Bank whom I met in person told me that my status here in Thailand cannot allow me claim the money as a refugee, and my father’s instruction to the bank was that the money be released to me only when I am married or present a trustee who will help me stand on my behalf and invest the money overseas.

Am actually in search of an honest and reliable person who will help me withdraw the money and invest it, I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe you will not try to cheat me but rather take me as your own people, though you may wonder why I am so soon giving in to you without seeing you, well I will say that my instincts still tells me that you could be true to me, Briefly, I will like to disclose much to you if you will help me to relocate to your country with the substance that I inherited from my parent which I will like to invest in your country into any lucrative business venture which you are to advise and execute seeing that I have no business experience for now.

However, I shall forward to you with the necessary information you need i.e. my passport and a letter to forward to the Bank on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund, as you manage the money in any investment, and I will like to complete my studies which is the most important thing to me.

It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital investment, this is the reason why I decided to contact you, please all communications should be through my private email address only ( for confidential purposes.

As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action and I have the whole document and prove with me, in the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction, awaiting your urgent and positive response.

Am pleading that you help me, I am giving all this detailed information with every transparency believing that you will have a clear picture of the base of help I need from you, I hope to hear from you soon, May truth and love be the guiding word in my refuge.

Thank You, Yours Sincerely,
Salma Abu Bakar Elsiddig Mohamed Hussein
