Dear Britan! The sender is supposedly from an African country and she claimed she is orphaned by Civil war and is a refugee in a neighbouring country, right?

I appreciate your feelings for a fellow being, irrespective of cultural barriers.

But I suggest our heads take control over our hearts when we deal with strangers. Recently, an Indian engineer working in Dubai, was duped out of his wits and relieved of his cash from his bank account through such touching messages and subsequent correspondences.

So, remember, touchy messages are n't to be trusted always.
