Reason it's a scam #1: They don't have internet access in a refugee camp.

Reason it's a scam #2: You don't end up in a refugee camp because your parents are killed. Refugee camps are usually populated by people who are fleeing famine, war, natural disaster or political persecution. not the death of their parents. That would be an orphanage.

Reason it's a scam #3: Persons with huge amounts of money don't go waiting around in a refugee camp until they can get someone else to receive the money and invite them to move to their country. If you have money you can get loans. You can definitely get enough to move from one country to another thus you need no help from outsiders. If I was owner of a bank and someone was heir to millions of dollars that is already in my bank I'd happily loan them enough for an airplane ticket. I know the money is there because it's in MY bank thus I am assured of getting my loan repaid with interest.

Reason it's a scam #4: Even if you are in a refugee camp you can inherit money where you are listed as next of kin. And furthermore I have never heard of a UN run refugee camp where you are treated like a prisoner and not allowed to leave. Most refugee camps are glad for people to leave. That makes room for someone else. Thus if someone had a huge fortune they were next of kin to inherit, the camp would be more than pleased to help them with collecting the money and becoming self supporting once again. Maybe they would donate some of that money to the refugee camp to help others.

While this deals mainly with Rwandan refugees it's pretty plain that any refugee camp run by the United Nations will have similar guidelines.

The reason they keep sending this stuff is because these scammers work off a script. They probably don't read your first few email replies. They just fire off the next reply in their script. It isn't until they believe you will send money that they will start dealing with you directly.

In this type of scam they usually don't try to get the info to take money out of your account. This is an advance fee scam where they will hit you with unexpected fee after unexpected fee that you are expected to help them with by sending money through Western Union or Moneygram. This isn't 100% and I bet they would take money from your account if you dumped the info in their laps but it isn't the usual way a scam like this operates.

What usually happens is they will correspond a few times with canned letters copied off a script to get your trust. Once you seem willing to help them transfer the money something will come up like a customs fee that the poor person in the refugee camp cannot pay. You will be asked to help pay that fee and then another and another until you run out of money to send and even then they will ask you to cash in your life savings, children's college money and probably sell your grandma into prostitution to come up with more.

Whatever you do while playing with them don't send them any scans of your driver's license or passport. They will use those to fool others. Also don't give them any identifying info because these people aren't friendly and you don't want a face to face with them. Of course if you don't anger them beyond all reason the risk is low but it's still a risk you don't want and don't need to take. Fake addresses and bank account info works just fine. If they press for a telephone get a free voice mail box on the web. There are plenty of sites for that. You can also say you are hard of hearing so don't have a phone or it's against your religion or your dog howls so much when the phone rings you had it taken out. It doesn't matter they'll be just as happy scamming you by email as by phone. Besides most of these guys have terrible English so you won't be able to understand but a tenth of what they say anyway. :lol:

Hi myquee. These letters all vary in details but the theme is always the same. Lots of money. Need your help moving it whether by cargo or bank transfer. Poor dear stuck somewhere with unsettled situation either politically or personally. You get a percentage as soon as the money arrives and then you give the rest to the person contacting you so they can start a new life and live the American Dream. Etcetera.

The same final outcome. You will be asked to help with some unexpected payments. You send money by Western Union or Moneygram to pay these unexpected expenses and finally your money is gone for good.

One observation. This box with all this money in it. Even if it contained $100 bills it would take more than one box. Since $100 bills are very hard to get outside the USA it would take a dozen or so boxes to hold $7,000,000.

mk0,
It is a scam. Break off conversation with her now (it could even be a guy pretending to be a girl) Also, do not give them any of your bank account information.

This is a typical 419 scam. Do not respond to them any more. Block thier email address if you need to.

Also, can you post the email address that the scammer is using? Some people will google that information, and if you have it posted here it could help to save someone else from becoming a scam victim.
