Scam Scam Scam.......

If it sounds too good to be true it is!!!

Hotel does not exist.

Please people, these scammers are giving Senegal a bad name, many people here are hard working and considerate...

Don't get caught up in scams that are run by people from other African countries...

There are NO JOBS, NO CONFERENCES AS ABOVE NO REFUGEE CAMPS with kids holding small fortunes in trust in other countries...

Be wise...

Hi, I also got the same offer which sounded so sweet to ignore however most of my queries about the conferences that were to be held in the US and Dakar Senegal were never responded to! and the how is one to pay money for hotel reservations to an individual? I thought now people are advanced and are using cards and mode of payments! unlike sending money to a personal account. I did call the number in which they had provided unfortunately on first answer a guy said it was a clearing and forwarding firm, on asking further if it was not medina beach hotel the guy said sorry he was tired and indeed it was medina beach hotel. Guy be on the look out! something is wrong some some where and some one wants to reap from where he has not sawn!
