This is a refugee scam, where the scammer wants you to believe it's about refugees who had to take shelter at a refugee camp or asylum because their lives are in danger. There's always a relative, business partner, or government officials that are after the family fortune. But there is no fortune, the only purpose this scammer has is to make you pay for made up fees to release the money / trunkbox or consignment box. Don't fall for this scam!


Dear Beloved

I am John Philips, I'm 19 years old and I and my younger sister
Princess live in the BUJIBORAN REFUGEE CAMP here in Accra Ghana, We
lost our parents during the war in my country Libaria and we were
among the kids that was rescued to Ghana by UN Forces to Ghana as
refugees. We have our inheritance boxes here in Ghana which our late
father, Hon Richard Philips a Liberian basse gold dealer deposited
here for safekeeping purpose due to the war situation in our country
over the years.

The 3 boxes contain $15.5 million USD dollars and 355kg of Gold dust
and Gold Bar respectively, wish my late father friend stand to help us
get the boxes out of the security company to be deliver to him in the
states so that he can send for us to come over and start a new life
over there with him but it was God work i most say, because it was so
unfortunate that my Father's friend was planing with my late father's
barrister to take all the money and run away but the barrister was so
Godly to tell me everything my late father friend was planing against
me and my younger sister.that is why the barrister advice us to look
for a God fearing and a trustworthy foreign citizen that can handle
this for us to get the boxes out from the security company, During
our search we came across your contact and we strongly believe you can
assist us to handle this.

But my questions are these below:

1. Please can you receive these boxes for us as our foreign guardian
and trustee?
2. Can we trust you in helping us?
3. Will 30% be OK for you?

We took this bold step with great faith in God and also i want you to
know that the document are with the barrister over here in Accra Ghana
and for the boxes are still in the Security Company, if you are
really interested in helping us to receive the consignment boxes in
your country please reply with your full contact for fast
communication to my personal email address below.I pray that soon we
will be together as one large family with Joy among us.
