Mystery of a Facebook account
Posted April 7, 2015on:
In my email I received a message through Facebook saying that Helen Arianti (from somewhere in England) wanted to be friends with me on Facebook. I checked her Facebook account and found that some of my friends and acquaintances were already on her Facebook friends list. I confirmed.
There was a ‘hello’ from her to which I also responded. Then I received the following message: ‘please contact me on my Email email@example.com i have important matter to discuss with you’. I wrote using my email: ‘Waiting’.
After silence for some time, I received an email from Vina Robbins. As the message was sent using the same email id (firstname.lastname@example.org), I knew it was from Helen Arianti. Her email reads (without any editing):
‘How are you today? I like to be open, i am a woman that have seen life, i have been in the social circle for many years, It really does not matter one’s age or color or achievement, what matters in our life is nothing but Care and expression, expression of the heart
‘This is the most important thing in life, to me the most beautiful thing created by God, is never seen, only felt in the heart, I have been hardworking all my life now, i must think of something better, to enjoy my life and probably have a family ,maybe relocate and start investing in other things Anyway, i like to tell you little about me, My name is Vina Robbins, Am British i lost my only daughter at child birth, Am working as an Senior Audit / banker in Al Rayan Bank formerly Islamic Bank of Britain United Kingdom
‘i was married but my Ex Husband got married to another woman, which caused our divorce, but is ok, since he accused me of been so busy with my work and the bank and its accounting/auditing, that i was not having time for him, but he refused to understand that i was pursing a goal, i told him that soon i would resign and we have enough time for each other but he was impatient, But is over between us, I am happy alone because I have everything i need, This is why I think of relocating to your country to get into investment and maybe own a small company which i can be able to manage Enough of myself, would you tell me more about yourself too???? I like to know you better, what you really do and your position in your work, your marital status and where you reside now
‘I love to hear from you soon’.
Before entering into further communication, I decided to have a good look at her Facebook profile. And lo and behold, the Facebook account of Helen Arianti had vanished. Her two messages in my Facebook message box were marked as ‘spam’.

The other day I received another email message from Vina Robbins. It reads (given here as it is without editing):
