Letter(s) from Maureen Gukama to Richard (USA)

Letter 1

Dearest love,
firstly I thank you for your reaction to mine email; inline with the message, which I have sent to you.

How was your night over there in your country,i believe you had a wonderful night and that the atmosphere over there in your country is very nice today? Mine is a little bit warm over here in Dakar Senegal.

My name is Maureen Gukama, I was born in 1989 but age doesn't matter in a real relationship, so i am comfortable with your age, I am from Ivory Coast in West Africa ,5.8ft tall, fair in complexion single (never married) and presently i am residing here in Dakar as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago.

My late father (Dr Frank Gukama) was the managing director of Gukama and Associates (Ltd) and he was the personal adviser to the former head of state before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and my father in cold blood.

It was only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a near by country Senegal where i am leaving now as a refugee under a Reverend-Pastor's care and i am using his computer to send these message to you.

I would like to know more about you. Your likes and dislikes. your hobbies and what you are doing presently.

Please do not be offended for this message that comes from me please, fair which to me obliged to put simple trust on you due to my situation here as a refugee and I shall demand most your conscientiousness after yours to know about me, I shall really grow fond we to have good In spite attitudes therefore I have this as a trust which i believe that you can not betray it at the end. I have communicated to you because of my difficult situation here in this refugee camp; Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace I will come out here soon.

I don't have any relatives now whom i can go to. all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is ( Rev- Paul Kamaga ) who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) here in the 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 women hostel because the camp have two hostels, one for men the other for women.

The Pastors Tel number is ( +221 771 371 964 ) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me 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 country. My love I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.

Please listen to this (please it's a secret,even no one knows about it except the Reverend that knows about it) i have my late father's statement of account and death certificate here with me which i will send to you later, because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading Foreign bank which he used my name as the next of kin, the amount in question is $9.7 million (nine million seven hundred thousand dollars)

So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you. I kept this secret to people in the camp here, the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me. So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone because i am afraid of loosing my life and the money, if people gets to know about it.

Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you. I like honest and understanding man, truthful and a man of vision,hardworking and God fearing. My Favorite language is English but our language is french but i speak English very fluently. Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said I will be happy to hear your voice, in my next mail, I will give you all the bank information were the money was deposited by my late father (Dr. Frank Gukama) in European bank in London.

Attached here is my picture. Have a nice day and think about me.
I will be waiting to hear from you soonest.
Yours in love,
Miss Maureen.
