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.

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.

Yup, sounds like a scam to me!
It's a pity that there is no intelligent person out of you all on this site, you are all bunch of idiots. I wonder in a whole website no one can think normal, not even the administrator of this site, you are all bunch of crap, I say God punish you all, none of you can even think maybe this girl is really in need, all you pass to her is judgement, Hmmmn, I remember that the Asians are always stupid and the Americans are even the worst, if care is not taken I swear to God this site will be closed, if any of you want to dare me then I will show you what I can do with this website. 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.
