A friend of mine joined a dating agency and received a message from a lady member.
Have a read,ive been trying my best to believe her.

Hi there,
I'm Annie Williams. I love your Profile,and i think u have all d qualities i want in a man.I never believed anybody wanna be with a girl like mine who's got a fairy tale about life's experience.If U really want to meet me for real, i want U to know the problem i have and what my hard experiences about life was.Please read this carefully and U'll understand the kind of person i am and what my hard experiences about life is. I was born in New Jersey,USA, and my parents were from Australia. I started my fairly tale when I was just 18 months old, i lost my Mum. I didn't grow up to know who she was or who ever my mother was.My father had to raise me all alone. I was the only child of the family. I also lost my Dad few years ago, he had luekemia and doctors cant help. It was, when i was a kid and i lost my mum that my dad had to build a House in New jersey that was where i grew up and spend most of my life time so far.
I met a guy after my father's death few months ago when i moved out to Evansville, because my father raised me never to have friends cos he had bad experience with friends when he was much more younger , and he made me stay indoor all day too. This guy i met was a german alright? He lived with me in Evansville, for over 2months , he asked if i would come over to africa to see his Uncle so we can get engaged and i can be happy after all the sorrows i've had I agree to go on the trip to africa with him. I saved enough to keep us confortable while we were away,I had to withdraw about $10,500 i have in my account to make sure we were safe and secure while we were on this trip . So i closed up my account. But unfortunately, when we got to africa he took me to stay in a hotel, and after few weeks and days when we got here, he brought a bottle of champaigne and i think he wanted to propose marriage to me, but after i drank the champaigne i went asleep all through and when i woke up, i noticed that he had gone with all my stuff my money, my jewelries, and everything i had left out here,the only thing he left me with is some cloths and nothing else, I was all alone here, and he left me a note saying that he had gone over to the Ukraine, with another girl, the lady he really loved and he's been keeping for so long when he was once in africa . Right now i'm in a hell of trouble. I was left out here all alone with some bills to take care of at the hotel i'm staying and the hotel management won't let me get out of here if i didn't pay the bills.It's really crazy and i know you won't want to believe me.. I feel like killing myself right now,i'm in alot of pain even writing this to you,but i had to let you know what is going on in my life right now.. At the moment i have an outstanding bill of $550 here on my accomodation and just $100 for the internet services, provided for me out here,the hotel management out here seized my passport andreturn flight ticket so that i will not run away. Please i need your help to get my life back on track and start up a new life for a lifetime happiness I promise if U can get me out of here by helping me pay the bills to the Hotel management, i will surely make it upto U and hopefully i will accept that i have found a new life with U So it's up to U to decide on what U wanna do with me concerning these issues Waiting to read from U soon .i am also looking for someone that can be the flesh of my flesh and the bone of my bone , one that will not just be beside me but one that can be part of me pls do tell me more about yourself maybe we can get along fine and you can email me.

Delete and forget. I don't know why your friend even bothered reading it. Quite apart from the fact that it's total rubbish, it's also almost unreadable due to the absence of paragraph breaks.

A fairy tale alright - Grimm

Almost unreadable? I didn't get past line three.

How much did you send her?

Obviously an old Jackanory viewer!

a nigerian civil servant with 30 mil in the bank and needing help getting it out of the country when you REALLY need one?

Is this a reputable dating agency?
Did your friend have to give over any card/bank details to join?
Looks like phishing to me.

I read it right through,utter rubbish & tantamount to begging.No doubt a search will reveal it as the latest offering of the infamous nigerian scam.
