Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.
If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving of his family members to come forward to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking in London and Swiss, affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, however in his bio-data form, he listed no body as next of kin.In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, depositors use numbers, codes even companies name to make the accounts anonymous. This bank even gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account,It is this investigation that we carried out resulted me given you the full details of this transaction This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit of the deceased client.
