Is Name-of-Person a refugee in a Refugee Camp in Dakar Senegal?

You are experiencing an attempted scam. There is no such person, and no such refugee camp. You'll receive beautiful, youthful photos by email, but it's only an attempt to squeeze money out of you.
Think about this for a moment. In a refugee camp, there is typically a struggle for clean water to drink, and enough food to eat. With those limitations, HOW do you think this person would have an operating computer, and a link to the internet? As already said, this is a scam that targets gullible people. Delete the email, do not reply, move on.
No. That is a scam e-mail looking for money. Delete it and ignore any others like it that you have or get.
Unfortunately, this is someone trying to scam you out of money. An internet search will turn up thousands of "hits" on the names used. Do not respond to these people in any way. Stop and think for a minute- you take your computer and internet service for granted. A refugee camp- which is trying to help people that are starving or dying of disease- would they be likely to have a computer, an internet service provider, etc that this young woman could use for email?

If you received an email from someone claiming to be in a refugee camp, and offering you a LOT of money to help them get money out of Africa- sorry- it is a scam. they are trying to defraud you. Do not respond to them in any fashion. Consider- in a refugee camp, devoted to preventing people from starving- how likely is it that a young woman would have access to a computer and internet access to allow her to send random emails to strangers?

No it is an email scam
The basic answer is that all such people claiming to be in such camps are trying to defraud. Very few people in a refugee camp, if any, would have internet access. Especially to the extent that these people have.

If you have you received an email from a person (especially a girl) who claimed he/she is residing in a refugee camp in Dakar, Senegal, I can assure you it's a scam and there is no camp in Senegal. That person is a swindler.


There has been an "advance fee" scam going for awhile in which a person - most always a girl/woman - will strike up contact with someone, either as a pen pal or some other innocent encounter. Then, at a certain point, she'll let it drop that she could get a lot of money owed her, or even get out of the refugee camp, if only she had $X for this, that or the other.

There are several camps in Senegal and should you wish to donate any money it is highly recommended you do so through a recognised charity.

A lady named James?
I think I'm gonna go with "this is a big scam". Particularly if James wants you to send her money, or if she's claiming she wants to send you money (trust me, it'll turn into you sending her money long before you ever see a dime).

No. This is a fraud.

General Discussion
The basic answer is that all such people claiming to be in such camps are trying to defraud. Very few people in a refugee camp, if any, would have internet access. Especially to the extent that these people have. "Senegal", "Dakar", "refugee camp" and "girl" (always a girl, never a guy), are key words that tell you that it's a scam.

If you have you received an email from a person (especially a girl or man of the cloth) who claimed he/she is residing in a refugee camp in Dakar, Senegal, I can assure you it's no such person exists. That person is a swindler.

Use a Rational Attitude
Unfortunately, this is someone trying to scam you out of money. An internet search will turn up thousands of "hits" on the names used. Do not respond to these people in any way. Stop and think for a minute- you take your computer and internet service for granted. A refugee camp- which is trying to help people that are starving or dying of disease- would they be likely to have a computer, an internet service provider, etc that this young woman could use for email? And assuming that she did, why would she select you of all people - does she not know any foreigners from her diverse international connections who are likely to be much more trustworthy than you? If she was university educated, why does she make clear grammatical errors, like not typing "I" in upper-case? If she argues that she has limited time on the computer, how did she put together a mini-novela to email you?

She's a con lady. She'll promise a lot of dollars trick you into sending money to her. Don't, I repeat don't take any chances Ignore her at once.

In Depth Discussion of the Scam
The scam is an "advance fee" scam, or 419, in which you are asked to send money to assist some girl in distress, either in exchange for the promise of fabulous rates of repayment/reward, or perhaps the girl's undying "gratitude" that usually has romantic overtones to it.

Such can start out as a "penpal" relationship, and can take any form from business, to friendship, to promise of sexual liaison, but all involve you sending money first. Scam - move on scam hoodlum YES There is a "sweetheart scam" going on that involves a person, supposedly from a Dakar Senegal refugee camp, wishing a penpal, friend, encounter or whatnot, who then tries to get some kind of emotional tie with the person they are roping in.

Then they make the pitch for money, either to be able to escape and visit, or to gain access to some family or business funds that are being held up. Now you are supposed to help out - and they will let you suggest it - by sending some relatively small amount money to help out. By small amount, anywhere from fifty to five hundred bucks and up. Pretty much what they think the market will bear.

You send it, to help your buddy, penpal, or possible future wife, and then hear that more money is needed. And more. Till you wake up and realize that there are no funds being sought, just him or her seeking your funds. And they aren't coming over to be the love of your life.

Never send money overseas. And don't fall for this one. It's too darn old. It used to be called "The Spanish Prisoner", though now it's called the "sweetheart scam" or "419". There has been an "advance fee" scam going for awhile in which a person - most always a girl/woman - will strike up contact with someone, either as a pen pal or some other innocent encounter. Then, at a certain point, she'll let it drop that she could get a lot of money owed her, or even get out of the refugee camp, if only she had $X for this, that or the other.

There is sometimes the hint that she and the man she is playing could get together, and that there are romantic/sexual feelings involved.

The man sends the money, and - surprise - has nothing to show for it but an smaller bank account. Sometimes, the girl/woman might try and play him a bit more, and say that even more money is needed, but whether she does this or not, he will never get any money back, or meet her.
