    Greetings,

    Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ the
    Prince of peace and the KING of kings.

    I am Benete Adelle a 25 years old christian girl, I
    don't have a computer of my own, a missionary from
    France allowed me to use her computer since she can't
    help me in any other way.

    I am a Victim of war in (COTE D'IVOIRE) Africa, I do
    have a small poultry farm before the war where I make
    my daily bread but unfortunately the REBELS came and
    destroyed all my things and set fire on houses
    including my poultry farm, I lost my farm.

    I am writing you this mail to request for your prayers
    and help in any way the Lord lay in your heart, to
    feed and clothe myself and if possible to re-start my
    little poultry farm again and I know that the Lord
    shall bless you in return for doing this.

    I am recently living with my pastor where we are about
    9 people living in a single room. Anything that the
    Lord lay in your heart for me will really be of a
    great HELP at this point in time as I am seriously
    going hunger,Please kindly let me know the help you
    can be able to render me so that I can send you where
    to send it.

    I will be expecting your response. May the Lord bless
    you abundantly and grant you success in all your
    dealings.

    Yours Sister In Christ,
    Benete
    NB: If you have doubts I will send you my PHOTOGRAPH
    and the contacts of my pastor for you to contact him
    and confirm things from him directly.

    OK, call me a bleeding heart, but what IF this is the on in a gazillion that's genuine?

    Would a request for a scan of her passport, as well as the name, address and contact details of her church help prove authenticity? A church could always be looked up against a registry...

    these things are never real because she doesn;t know the email recepitant at all. so how would she know to send it out to him?

    Obviously a fake. Everyone knows that Triple H is the real King of Kings, not Jesus.

    i think its a scam, if she needs money she won't anyhow email you. she should would have asked her church or the people who send them there on mission.

    reply the email to her and tell her that well her command of english is pretty good and it would be a waste of talent to work in a poultry farm and that she should look for some admin, translator or personal assistant position on www.jobstreet.com.sg www.jobsdb.com.sg or www.monster.com.sg This way, after a few years of working, she would be not only to afford a farm but she might even be able to afford a chain of farm.

This is just a warning, we are not fighting against racism and stupidity on the internet, internet is not for idiots like you guys and the European union won't take this crap any more.
