Guys below is my conversation with a scammer. Please note that they have so many other methods. The photos you will see are pictures used by the scammer. Please be careful not to fall into the hands of this scammers.
How are you and what have you been up-to lately? Well i Guess you are doing great. I’m very sorry that i could not reply your mail earlier as necessary. I was very busy in office with (Hope Worldwide). I got some gifts and items from the organization and your thought just came in my mind and I decided to send some to you as present to you as to initiate our relationship and to effect a positive change in the lives of the less privileged;indigent widows and some natural disaster displaced folks in your geo political zones or domain. Actually, I do not have need for some of these items so i felt they might be useful to you and to numerous war victims, and less privileged which is the main objective and visions of our organisation. And also to assure you that you came first in my priority list of people to benefit on this awesome gesture. I sent the gift through a friend and a Co_worker by name Rev sister Mary Palmer ,She has traveled with her group on a mission for Hope Worldwide Aid support to Africa Senegal precisely.
It is worthy of note that yesterday after participating in a meeting we held, i gave her ( Rev sis Mary Palmer ) the gift package to deliver to you When she arrives there since you didn’t supply me with your postal address and I couldn’t wait for you to do that now because I am on my way to Haiti on a special sponsored Mission of( Hope Worldwide Aid support ) to Haiti. And i may not be able to reply my mails until i get back to UK because most of the Areas we will visit in Haiti during our stay there will or might not have network coverage after since the earthquake. I believe where Rev sis Mary Palmer with her group will be camping in Senegal, might be closer to you or your resident country. You should contact her via email: ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and if possible discuss with her on phone regarding how to receive your gift package and you should send her your home Address and telephone number through her mail OK. Here is her number(+221 775 509 446)
Please don’t laugh at me when you receive the package lol, I know it isn’t much but I sent it from my innermost heart and i believe you will appreciate everything inside the package because it is coming from a special friend and in a special way. I know that you will be in need of these items in one way or the other. The content of the pack are 2 Dell laptops computer, 1 i-phones, AN ENVELOPE, Video Camera and some jewelries. I packed everything in a medium carton and gave it to Rev sis Mary Palmer to deliver it to you because she didn’t travel with much luggage of her own.
Open the pack of one of the laptop to bring out the envelop which I put inside, it contains some of my recent photos and that of my family members and a surprise gift which I don’t want to disclose to you till you see it. leaving it at home, my boys will do away with them OK? Update me when you receive it, so I will be aware. I will see how i can make a request for you as a volunteer in this organization only if you would be interested? I will get to you when i come back to UK.
Yours truly Friend,

Dear Dr. Antonia,
You are most welcome. I know how tight medical personnel’s schedule get however, I appreciate your staying in touch.
How are the boys doing? Trust great.
Definitely, integrity is an aspect of my life that I value so much and as it were, it makes you stand out amongst the crowd.
Yes we do have orphanage homes and other care centers. Are you thinking of having investments in Nigeria? That definitely will be a good one, you can count on my support though not financial but administratively.
Definitely there are several hotels you could do a search on the Internet to have an idea on the price range. I will be glad to have you around and to be your tour guide.
Ones again, thank you.
Make a landmark where ever you find yourself…

My dear beloved friend.
How are you doing and life with you generally?I hope you had a wonderful day.I am fine.It’s just that i am a very busy woman. All the contents of your mail were quite noted and understood. It is true we have not met; nevertheless, from your mail i am compelled in fairness to presume that you are very serious in this relationship. Before i proceed, i will like to inform you that If we are to become best of friend, we are to base our friendship on honesty, trustfulness, and care, above all, open-minded; this is because i do not want to experience pain or you either, in any ways,
I am also happy you patiently passed through some Educational and academic process .The root and labour of Education is bitter but the harvest is worth more than a gold okay?Honestly I used to think it’s only the people here in the UK that do acquire good Education right? Now i can see it in a different perspective and I have changed my mindset towards African system of Education my dear.
Do they have SOS or Orphanage homes and pigiatric homes over there in your country? I had to shed tears when i saw the children in the streets of Uganda. Honestly i believe in the future of Africa, I see a greater continent Africa ,but for Africa to get to such stage and envying pedigree; there must be a change of government and those corrupt politicians right? lol! yes of course i know your country is a peaceful country unlike other countries i see on BBC NEWS .Though my colleagues were there sometimes ago and they really enjoyed their stay. I might be coming over there with few friends of mine but i don’t know yet, Thinking of staying over there for two to three weeks if work permits me right?;Because my work is very demanding and tasking in all ramification.
I will be elated to be intimated of What the hotels over there look like? I would like a hotel not too cheap but not too expensive in a good environment and location,ok i will take a look at hotels online tonight and see if i would find a good one for my picnic and stay . I believe you will not be so busy when i finally arrive over there as i will appreciate you to be my guide to take me around your country if you don’t mind? You know what i mean? I would like to visit so many places and i learnt there are waterfalls;amusement parks;zoo and other fascinating scenario over there and seas right? Hehehe lol can’t wait to taste the foods over there.I know it will be something different and special right? lol.
I am really happy to meet an African like you. I am glad that you base your mails on honesty and i know we will go places
take care of yourself.
I care for you
