Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. But he does not give up if he thinks it is still possible to convince the victim. He could try a new scam with hidden millions or a big lottery winning. Another approach is a compensation letter where he promises the victim a big sum as compensation. The compensation money does not exist, - it is simply the start of a new scam. The letter below is an example of such a letter.

Dear Sir,
I have instruction from Miss Alicia to send to you a certified bank draft bearing US$300,000.00, Bank draft is not deductable or transferable untill it get's to the care of the beneficiary,you can only receive it by allowing me to send it to you through a courrier service firm from here and the draft has nothing to due with drugs and money laundry.Meanwhile our local post office has been granded and neglected by our government due to terrible corruptions so it's no longer in used and citizens had no choice than to start using private courrier firms and some like Fedex,DHL are very far from the area we are leaving so we usually send by private courriers because it it's sensitive and not all courrier services are authorised to lift bank drafts.

I will go and confirm from a reliable courier agency and the insurance on how they can deliver this bank draft (Cashier's cheque) to your place as you asked me but you will need to urgently re-confirm to me your full names, current direct telephone numbers and current contact address which you would like to receive the draft from the courrier firm to avoid unwarranted mistakes. Thanks for your understanding

I wait for your reply soon.
Rev GoodLuck Efossa
