Letter 2

How are you doing? Thanks for the message. I hope you are really having a nice time.. I'm new at this online dating cuz I was introduced to it by a friend and you are the first person am meeting online.. I am Teresa Peoples. I am single with no kids and currently seeking for a relationship, but not in a rush.. Well I quite have a diversed background, My dad is a Native Of Adelaide (Australia).
I grew up mainly in Adelaide and had all my school days there and even my primary school days...
Had to move down here in Boston with my aunt after 4yrs ago after I lost my parents in an auto crash... I like having fun and I enjoy going to beach to watch the sunsets,going to the beach for a long walk, swimming, cooking, hanging out with loved ones, watching movies, dancing, playing video games, playing basketball, reading magazine and novel.... I don't know what you still wanna know, but I'd be glad if you ask.. Talk to you soon..

Letter 3

I'm working as a nurse attached to UNICEF and presently im on a working trip on a mission to war-ravished countries in Western Africa be back in two weeks. I hope this is a enough time for us to know each other better and see if we can work. I will be taking my time to talk with you over here.
The people here are so lovely. It feels bad to know that they need so much help. At the moment, you are the only person I am writing to back home. I have just one friend here in the camp who introduced me to the site, I tell things about me but she has a lot of friends. I lived in my country from childhood until the year 2010 when I moved to the States. I moved down here in North End Boston with my aunt after I lost my parents.
my aunt was caught up in drugs and alcohol, i really love her and it pains me that she chose to live that way. I see this charity work as a way of relaxing and doing to others what I was supposed to do with my Aunt when I was more younger. I just had to tell you about my personal life because i will like to know what you have been through in life too. I believe human beings are what they have experienced, the past presents the future. But anyway I'll not and I'll never allow that to pull me down or back in life. I just have to be strong and move on in my life..I pray the Lord guides and protect me and lead me through the right path.
This is my first time ever in Africa. You seem to be a very nice person and I hope you will not hurt me. I want to be your best friend and I also need your advice in life and your support as well to achieve my goals and I don't want to be hurt any more.

Letter 4

Sorry for the late response, I have terribly down with the flu. The time difference is 5hr, Africa is ahead with 5hrs its 11:09am now. I can only read my email when i'm off duty.
Thanks for the lovely email and thanks for taking your time to email me and tell me a lot more about yourself again, that's really nice of you and I appreciate that. I am glad reading an email from me was fulfilling.....Anyways, I really love all you have to say about yourself, I see you have a really bright prospect and I like your outlook on life. I can see you have such a wonderful focus, that's really good and i pray you achieve all of your goals real soon. What are your goals?
Well I'm sorry I cant give you a proper reply now as I have to go on duty in about 3 mins so I will have to send you an email when I get off duty. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't send me an email back when you get this:). I'll have to spank you if you don't.lol...I have to go now though...Take care of yourself! Be safe. Please send me some pictures of you.

Letter 5

How are you doing, sorry about the last time I couldnt give you answers. I was running late for duty then.
Yes I'm doing good and back to work.
Presently my team just arrived the State of Borno in Nigeria. This State was attacked by a terrorist group called Boko Haram.
Let me tell you a little more about my work...UNICEF works for children's rights,supports,survival,protection,and development through education, advocacy,fundraising/ or donations. UNICEF which stands for The United Nations Children's Fund helps children living in poverty in developing and war-torn countries .UNICEF is the world's child survival authority..UNICEF is helping kids in over 150 countries mostly African countries and territories.
UNICEF's work includes immunizing and educating boys and girls in war ravished countries, and protecting them from the terror of abuse and also protecting them from war and neglect..
I don't travel often out of the country. I will be back home next weekend. It will be nice to meet in person to feel the real life chemistry between us. I live North end Boston. I live alone at home. Why did you ask?
As per the questions I asked here are answers: my goals are to have a very successful career and run a midwifery clinic for pregnant women, it's really something i have always dreamed of and I'm really working hard towards that direction. I'm sure that cannot be complete without a honest, responsible and caring husband, someone who really knows the true meaning of what we call a Family.
Hopefully fair enough everything works out good for me:). I see relationships as one of the most natural things that can happen in life and I believe a good relationship is built on trust, honesty, togetherness and prayers. I have had my fair share of relationships and I have been hurt too but it doesn't put me off me totally. It has only made me wiser. I like having fun and i like going to the beach to watch the sunsets with my man and also going for a long walk on the beach with my man.
I really like that and I like privacy a lot too but it just have to be with my man. Much to say but so little time...I have to jump in the showers now and then get something to eat and get back to work..I'll be hoping to hear from you soon..Take care of yourself and get back to me when you can...
Thanks for the photos, hope to see more:)

Letter 6

Good day Dave,
How is your day going on over there, I'm beginning to miss home so much, Im working under Patient Care and Education for Unicef. Thanks for sharing the advice with me, I Totally agree with you on that! Thanks for liking my photos, I like so much your photos too, my thoughts about you and your photos you sent to me. You make me smile. You are easy to communicate with. I like the flow of the communication between us natural and easy. I find your intelligence refreshing and stimulating. You are quite affable and I find this attractive in a person.
When im not working I like swimming, reading, camping, fishing, listening to music and dance to any kind of music, traveling , going bowling and also a good cook. I am a family oriented person and There is more, but it would be better for you to find some things out for yourself. Traveling is one of the activity I want to do with my partner, I love to visit new countries, meet new people and learn more about their cultures. Am looking for a man that will be able to listen to me , communicate his feelings to me , make me laugh, hold and comfort me in need,stand by my side, respect me, passionate lover in every way, support me in every way, love me and only me, make me smile, protect me when needed, romantic time to time ,constantly reactive, and treat me right.
I grew up mainly in Adelaide and had all my school days there and even my primary school days...
Had to move down here in Boston with my aunt after I lost my parents in an auto crash some years back and moved down here 4 years ago. I was living together with my Aunty until she was caught up in drugs and alcohol. I live alone in my apartment now.
Yes I have 2dogs and a cat at home, I took my pets to the Vet place until I'm back home. How about you ?
P.S. I'll like you to tell me about your last relationship.. I'll like to know about it.

Letter 7

My last relationship is something I dont really like talking about cuz I don't like to remember it but I'll definitely tell you about it cuz I believe it's a way of knowing each other better. The relationship lasted for 2 years, he got tired of me and decided to try new things. He was getting fastidious, finding fault for everything I did and, I tried my best to make things change because I have expended a lot in the relationship (Time, Money and energy) but he just made things worse. He showed me the way out when he started having an affair with another girl which I got to find out and that was when he told me he doesn't need me anymore right in front of the other girl I caught him with. That made me very very miserable and I just couldn't believe such thing could ever happen to me. I like being honest in anything i find myself doing. I have always been very honest in my past relationships but what hurts me is that I don't tend to get that honesty back in return from my partner, it really sucks me out but it teaches me more about life. I was very honest and loyal to my ex and everything was going smooth until he started changing his attitude, I talked to him to stop that cuz I made him know I understood what was going on then but he didn't and I figured we weren't compatible anymore so we had to call off the relationship cuz he wasn't honest to me. I really wanted to have something serious with him but he was not ready for that.
I have been single for some months now and I dont want to rush into any relationship cuz I don't want the same thing that happened in my last relationship to happen again, I want someone that I can always call mine and mine only cuz I'll be his only one too. I want someone who's really ready for a serious relationship and ready to prove to me that it pays to respect, love and cherish a woman and I'll definitely prove to him back that it pays to be honest to a woman. I want my next relationship to be my very last one which I have been praying to God about and I'm sure he won't let me down. Well, I hope that makes sense to you. I'm feeling very weak and sick now. I really need some rest and then find something to eat. I'll be hoping to hear from you real soon though but until then take good care of yourself and have a nice time and fun filled day even if i dont. I think i'll have to go and see the doctor tomorrow morning if this persists. I have to go now though. Be safe and talk to you soon!

Letter 8

God, that experience with your ex would have destroyed a weak man, glad you are not one. You must be a man of strong character, good one. I am not really happy with my health. I feel so weak, I got to figure out somethings, the doctor said I got sick cuz of the foods i ate here. I knew that already but I don't think I have any other choice than to just eat the food they serve us here. The first time I ate the food I threw up so I had to buy my own food stuff for myself and I have been doing that ever since we arrived here. Everyone out here is eating the food and nothing is happening to them. My food stuff finished some weeks back and that was why I have been eating the food they serve us out here which is what made me sick..The doctor advice me to get my food stuff since that's what I have always done until recently. The problem is that we haven't been paid yet, though I'm working as a voluntary worker out here but I will be paid some amount of money when I'm back home but right now I don't have any money on me to buy my food stuff for myself anymore. When we were coming here I came down with 500 dollars and I have exhausted it on my personal feeding and other stuffs. I'm really broke right now and I need to get some food stuff for myself cuz I don't want to eat the food they serve us out here anymore. It's making me sick and I'm scared. I'm confused right now and I don't know what to do. I hope you've been having a good time unlike me out here though, things have stopped being exciting to me here and it's really making me very sad and unhappy. Anyways, I have to go now as I'm tired of typing and boring you out. Wish I was chatting with you. Do have fun and have a nice day even if I don't as I'm sure I won't. Hoping to hear from you soon.

Letter 9

I have not been good. I hate how I feel now, so hungry but can't eat good. I thought Unicef was well organized until I worked for them. There is corruption in the governance. I know provision must have been made for us to feed well but we are not getting it due to some other people above us.
The food they serve us here is mainly their local food here and sometimes Bread and Tea and all that messy food. I have been trying to patch up things, but it's getting out of my hands now i don't really like getting too forward though but things are hard for me now out here so I just have to I ask you for a little favor, I'm sure you know I need to get some food stuff for myself out here but I can't cuz I haven't been paid yet. So I thought I should ask if there's anything you can do for me, I mean if you can help me with money so I can use it in getting some food stuffs for myself out here, I have just 4days more my mission will be over here. I have some debts I already owe, I'll really appreciate that and I promise to pay you back when I return with my paycheck. Please try to understand me, I really need to use a helping hand out here and I hope you can work something out for me. I hope I'm not too forward but I just wanna be open with you. Write me as soon as you get this, let me know if you can't help me. Don't stop talking to me if you feel wrong about this, I am sorry, I just have no choice, please. I am waiting for your message, I have been given today off. I hope to hear from you soon and until then take good care of yourself and have a nice time.

Letter 10

Thanks for your email.
What do you mean by "if you are who you say you are"
Well please don't border yourself helping me if you don't feel comfortable about it.
I'm very sorry for asking and been so open to you about myself. I will be fine and return back home in good health.
Take care,

Letter 11

How are you doing,
Yes everything I told you about me is true.

Letter 12

Well I see you have known more about me without me telling you. Now you know about the Chive. I guesss that was the only thing I was hiding away from you, now you know.
I asked you for help because I needed it to get myself food here for the few days remaining, I have so many men sent me message on AFF but I chose to communicate with you alone. I felt we have something going on between us, I don't know much about you but I learn something new about everyday that we communicate, I don't want you to think i'm after you money.. I need a serious relationship and want a family of my own.
Me getting the money here is not a problem, I will go out of the camp to the airpot, there are Western union offices at the airport for me to cash the money. So far I was able to lend some money from our camp commandant to get myself food, I need to pay him back before I leave the camp. I still need your help if you feel comfortable to help me, I need to pay back the commandant.
Today we are expecting the Unicef officials to announce to us when we are flying back home. I know its crazy for someone you never met to ask you for help with money but everything happens for a reason, I asked you because my heart leads me to you.

Letter 13

I just returned back to the camp, the Officials will be here at the camp by 18hrs.
Well I have to be open to you with everything. A friend introduced me to AFF and Chive.
After I broke up with my ex boyfriend I decided to go weird f a little bit to take away the pain, I scarified a lot in my last relationship at the end all my effort and time was wasted, I only post my photos on Chive nothing serious about it. I discovered AFF was all about sex, I removed my profile because I'm not interested in sex alone.
I joined Unicef because I want to keep myself busy and help Children in need. I'm working with Unicef as a nurse since June 2014.
Well Dave at this point you have to make up your mind if you still want to continue communicating with me forwarder. I'm looking for a serious relationship , What i meant by family is to have a partner in my life again, I'm not getting younger.

Letter 14

Thanks for your email.
The officials just left the camp, our mission is over today, our flight back home is not confirmed yet, the next team will be coming down here this week, so we fly back home with the plane that will bring the next team. I don't need any other help from you expect little money for me to pay back the commandant asides that i don't need any help. Since you can't send me money then I have to look for a way to settle it.
Thanks you, Take care.

Letter 15

Good morning,
I don't know why you still send me email , you don't trust me, I feel so ashamed of myself, you turned me down so easily when I asked you for help because of what is going on in the internet!
I borrowed 380 from the commandant, that is a very small amount for me to send me a check, what do you think? My team arrived Nigeria on the 08th of this month. Unicef is in partnership with Easy Jet Airline. The UK's largest airline.
Do you still want to take me serious now that you have discovered more about my past life? be honest with me!
I still want to communicate with you but I have to be sure about you, I met you online so you don't expect me to tell you everything about me in a day, gradually we get to know more about each others like and dislikes, past life's and so on!!
The local airport is about 30min by taxi from the camp.

Letter 16

Good day,
How are you doing today over there, I have been busy since morning putting my languages together, I don't know what day for the flight so I want to get myself ready to return back home asap.
I don't care about your money but your intentions towards me as a lady you want to meet, you met me from a dating site so its normal for you to be suspicious when I asked you for help.
How much do you want to send to me.

Letter 17

You don't sound so happy in the last email I guess its because of your dad, I'm sorry to hear he was taken to the hospital yesterday, How old is your dad? When are you leaving? Will you return back home today?
Please I want you to be very sure that you are comfortable sending me money, I don't want our communication to base on money affair. I want to take my time and know more about you gradually, We are adults and know what our hearts want at this stage of our life.
I'm very grateful for the 160. I will hand it over to the commandant and explain things to him, I still have about 80 with me, So I will give everything to him then I will know his response.
My full name is Teresa Peoples. Address: Borno Nigeria.
I want you to use a secret text question and answer by yourself .
Its late already I cannot go to the airport to cash the money when you send it, although I don't know when you will be sending it, Now its 21:24.
Please be careful when driving.
Take care,

Letter 18

How are you,
Its mid-night here, I woke up to use the rest room so I checked my email before going back to bed.
The location A is closer to the camp, so you can send it to the address of location A.
Secret text question is requested when sending money to African countries because they are third world war countries, the commandant told me that. Also he told me that you have to tell the western union staff that i'm your girlfriend and we have know for a long time, so there will be no delay in my cashing it here.
Let me choose the secret text question myself.
Secret question: What is my dad's age?
Answer: 70
So you can use that secret text question, alongside with my full name and address of location A.
I will return back to bed, I will check again in the morning after breakfast. When do you all plan to visit your dad?
Always smile for me:)

Letter 19

Good morning,
Thanks for your emails and the money you sent me, I'm grateful.
I will be going to the Western union office at the airport with an army to guide me. I will email you when again when i return back from the airport. I have written out all the extra infos you gave me.
I'm sure you are sleeping now.. Sweet dreams:)

Letter 20

How is your day going? Just got back from the airport.
Thank you so much for the money. I can't wait to leave here. I feel a little better, i had lunch on my way back to the camp.
How was your night sleep, I know today will be a busy day for you and your family going to the hospital to visit your dad. I will be patient to read from you whenever you have time to write me. I have given the commandant a total of 230 . I used part of money you sent to for transportation of me and the army man. He didn't say anything when I gave him the money.. He only smiled .
Do you have a lot of friends? What is your ideal first date like? My ideal first date is watching a movie together then dinner afterwards. We are expecting unicef officials at the camp this evening, hoping to hear them to announce the returning date and time so that we can get our languages ready. I will inform you what the official says!
I can't wait to leave here. I appreciate this so much sweetie, No one has ever been this nice to me since I lost my dad and I have never had any reason to ask money from any man. Thanks so much.
Let me tell you a little about me and my dad. I am his only child and the only heir to all he has. in his will, I can have it all at 31. Right now, I am just waiting on the right time to contact his lawyer and get everything. The lawyer sends me money annually from what he is making from my dad's properties. Two houses in Melbourne, one in London and the other in North Caroline. My ex knew all these and only wanted to use me. You have a kind heart just like my dad, I am impressed..well I shouldn't be boring you out now. I am going to relax for a while.

Letter 21

The trip to the airport was not so easy because there was traffic and lots of people queued at the western union office, the army man helped me.
How has your journey to the hospital with the rest of your family, How is your dad doing, Hope he is improving very well, How do you think your dad will feel seeing me and you together?
This evening we waited for the Unicef officials at the camp but they didn't show up so its another day without no update from the officials.
Here is basically how things are here,we are stationed in a camp site,its just a bare open space with lots of tents....Its a really big place,even though i dont know a lot about measurement but i think it should be like 14 football pitches...lol. It's really wide. Some of the tents are for us,the bigger ones while the others are for the patients but they are just some distance from us. I'm not working for a peace corp, i'm a nurse and we are attending to the people affected by the poverty and health issues in this State. Its true there is corruption in high places in the government so as expected there is a lot of terrorist activities and lots of tribal clashes. I'm just doing what i can to help humanity but the World will only get better if everyone get involved. Its not about the money. There is a huge military presence around the camp,they are here to protect the camp site as we were attacked when we first got here by some tribal who claimed we were only taking care of rival tribe...It took a lot of begging and some military intervention to help us that day as we were held hostage for like 3 hrs. There are a total of 70 doctors and 120 nurses here now, I heard here is the most peaceful region in the west of Africa, lol. It must be a war zone. Write to me when you can, Hope you had something good to eat. I cant wait to be out of here. I got you on m mind, I got home on my mind.

Letter 22

How are you doing today,
How was your night sleep after looking at my photos before going to bed, I sent you more photos of me to make you feel happy after your trip to NYC. You must know these are dangerous words you write (smile) I will hold you to them forever. On a more serious note, you are the first thing i think about when I wake up lately and the last thing I think before going to bed, Do you think its normal or I'm going crazy?
I'm just getting up right now though and i didn't even had a good night sleep and feeling very unhappy right now. I'm really worried right now sweetie and sad too, the Unicef officials from Somalia came down here this morning to address us and we got to find out that our mission out here is no longer ending soon and that it has now been postponed further because of the coming Presidential Election coming up on the 28th of this month. which means we will be working down here until when the Elections period is over. They did that because our team have been here for few weeks so they want us to stay till the Election period is over before they bring a new team to take over from us.
They pleaded with everyone down here though and they gave us some money and i was given $200.00 to use for our upkeep until when we will be back home. They didn't even let us know when exactly we will be coming home and how long we will be staying here after the Presidential Election but i know we will be staying out here for more days. I don't want to stay out here any longer honey.
I want to come to you and be with you sweetie cos i feel connected to you already and i want to see you and rest on your arms all day and cuddle with you at night. I don't want to stay here for long anymore. The Unicef officials said i can be able to leave if i want to but they said i'll be the one to pay my way back home cos they cant afford to pay my way back home by themselves since Unicef operates and lives on donations made by people or company alone. I understand what they're saying though but i don't know whats going to happen now about my coming home. Thats making me feel very very sad and bored right now:(. I think your opinion on this issue asap.
I'm a licensed practical nurse, I don't work full time with Unicef in Boston, only on charity mission to war-ravished countries. I don't have much friends, most of my college friends are married and living in different places, I do most of my activities alone since I separated from my ex, I have this favorite quote by Friedrich Nietzsche says "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."
Glad to hear your Dad is doing ok, When will he be going back home? It will be a great pleasure to meet your Dad while standing beside you :)
How do you resolve conflict between you and your mate?
My darling Dave ---I choose to give my heart to you. I choose you as the person I want to get to know more about and spend the rest of my life with. I can only pray that our relationship finds favor in God's eyes for my this is my heart's desire.

Letter 23

How are you doing,
Sorry for the late reply,
What do you mean I should not scare you aware about spending the rest of lives together? Do you really have a serious intentions toward me or are you just after SEX?
I am not having a good day :( Our missing was extended till May 15th. this morning i spoke with one of the Unicef officials here in the camp to inform her that I want to go back home, here is not good for me, my health and safety is at high risk, two of Unicef workers was kidnapped this morning at 05am by the village militants, they are demanding for a ransom of $100,000 before they can release the workers under their custody. The Official asked me to wait till on monday before they will allow me leave the camp, they want me to be here in the camp till the Saturday election is over. From your email i figured out you want me to come back home not just to meet you, also to have a good health care. The airports are not closed, so on monday when I am out of the camp i will go to the airport to make inquiry for ticket back home. Do you support me on this decision to leave the camp and return back home asap?
Good that your daughter will be coming to visit you next week, kids are blessings from God. Do you want to have more kids?
I took my LPN course in my home country (Australia), I don't have any other work with Unicef asides the charity work to war-ravished countries. Yes I want to forwarder my education in becoming a mid-wife, this is one of my goals!
What is going on with you and your anuty, I was hoping to read about it in your mail but you didn't mention it again. Is everything ok between you and her?
Write to me as soon as you read this email dear, let me know what next.

Letter 24

Thanks for your email again,
This time i have to allow you do what's on your mind. You have concluded in your heart that i'm not real or I'm not who I say I am..
As of your money I will return it back to you once i'm home that not a big deal. I don't care about your money from day one. I met you on a not too decent dating site, you came along decent and has been decent ever since, could that be in pretense? No I guess. I needed to eat, you came along generous. Now you have told me what is on your mind. I believe everything happens for a reason.
We are adults so we should know when someone is cheating or playing games , So if you feel im playing scam games with you then goodluck and don't write me again.
