what is the proper amount to tip for customer service ?

generally speaking, most people in the united states will tell you that good service deserves a 15-20% tip. as a former server myself, i tend to give more than 20% to support my fellow industry friends as a sign of solidarity. also, i'm proud to say that when i was last waiting tables, i averaged above 25% tips, but that's because i was lucky enough to have wonderful regular customers.

truly great service can be rare, but in my opinion, there's no ceiling on what percentage of tip your server deserves. i've given out 100% tips on special occasions when the experience was extremely special and personalized.

emigration and refugees

is there a refugee girl in dakar senegal asking for help ?

please do not fall for this nonsense. there are a hundred scam mails running around with the same story, they just change the girls name.

the basic answer is that people claiming to be in such camps are trying to defraud you.

very few people in a refugee camp, if any, would have internet access. especially to the extent that these people have.

if you have received an email from a person (especially a female) who claimed he/she is residing in a refugee camp in dakar, senegal, it is a fraud. there is no camp in senegal. that person is part of a well-known swindle.

should you wish to donate money to refugee camps it is highly recommended you do so through a recognized charity.

here are answers from various wikianswer contributors:

( there is also a sample letter posted further down this page )

  • 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 or £x for this, that or the other.
  • he/she uses a lot of names. it can be a woman who is writing the letters or it can be a man pretending to be a woman, or it can be a gang of men (such as the gangs from nigeria who pull similar scams on dating agency sites) by pretending to be women who need your help. it is a well-known scam. it's all lies.
  • it's a scam she's a fake, and the refugee camp doesn't exist, why bother? moreover, the photos that she/he sends you it not a picture of her.
  • he/she who is behind the letters is very smart and knows how to enter your heart very easily. i for one believed her/him till the end. she/he is a good actor, and she/he has the tools to prove that she/he is telling you the truth like the bank email and british phone number. she/he is very good swindler, its a very clever scam.
  • if you have you received an email from a girl claiming she is residing in a refugee camp in dakar, senegal, it's a scam and there is no camp in senegal. that person is a swindler.

  • it's a scam and there is no camp in senegal. that person is a swindler.
  • here is an example of the initial type of letters these scammers write (the names have been removed) before moving on to ask you for money:

" my name is xxxx xxxxxx from south sudan, but presently i am residing at the n'dioum refugee camp here in dakar senegal as the result of the civil war out of political crisis going on in my country, the camp is headed by the rev whom i use his office computer to write to you when he is less busy at the office, i was a medical student reading nursing before the incident that leads me to be here. my father dr xxxxxx xxxxx xxxx ,died in december 2011 . my father was a freedom fighter, he was the leader of the south sudan democratic movement , and the south sudan army before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed him alongside with my sweet mother oh? may their souls rest in peace, i managed to make my way to senegal where i am living now as a refugee by the help of the red cross society. i will like to know more about you, your likes and dislikes and what you are doing presently, i will tell you more of me in my next mail if you write back to me again. i will be waiting patiently to read again a mail from you, thanks and god bless you, i remain yours forever. "

  • in return for your help, you will eventually be promised huge amounts of money that is supposedly owned to them as an inheritance (or some such nonsense) in return for your assistance. there will also be the promise of a relationship or sexual relationship with them. if you respond, sooner or later you will be asked to pay a fee to help them obtain something or to help them get somewhere such as coming to visit you. if you pay, another fee will quickly be requested for something else and it will continue that way until you give up or run out of money. you will never see the huge amount of money that you were promised, because that never existed. neither will they ever come to visit you. usually the fraud is run by gangs of men pretending to be women, even to the extent of written communication with you live on instant messenger while pretending to be female.
