Miss Young

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.

Subject: Hello

Good day to you, I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and I want to assure you that you will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do. Although we know each other for the first time but I believe our father has directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because I saw your profile on a list of registered email addresses.
My husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death, he deposited the sum of 6,143,728.00 US Dollars with a bank In Canada. Recently, I have been diagnosed with cancer and my understanding is that I have now reached the terminal stages of the disease.
Presently, I have willed out almost all of our assets to several charity homes and to some of the less privileged. Despite the agreement between my late husband and I to give aid to the deprived, we also agreed to render support to an individual we have not meet before in life due to the fact that when we were still young in life we received an anonymous help from an individual we did not know and which we have not being able to know till date. The impact we got from such gesture made us to do same. I have therefore been inspired to donate the last portion of my fortune which in an account in Canada to charity through a complete stranger and I wish that you and your family be beneficiaries of the funds as well. Please accept my sincere offer.
Be assured you stand no risk as this is my money, I and my late husband labored for it and me as the next of kin has the sole power to donate the funds to whoever I want. I am a born again Christian and take delight only in the things of our father as I have prayed a lot on this already and I believe so much in the manifestation of Christ that I know he will not fail me so I want you to know that you have to be strong in your faith as he {Almighty} will surely strengthen you. My husband’s relatives are not Christians and they have used my husband’s wealth and property left behind for worldly things. As I am here in the hospital they are around me and they have sold virtually all I have here in Solomon Island that my husband and I labored for and what they wait to hear is that I am dead so that they lay their hands on my last belongings here on earth but that does not bother me because things of the earth are canal and there is an eternal home for me which there is enough enjoyment.
I do not want them to know about this deposit that is why I am communicating with you only on email and I am making communication with the finance firm also who understands my predicament. All I need is your absolute trust, commitment, confidentiality and honesty because I want to see my late husbands vision fulfilled before I leave this sinful world. My spirit directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for someone to help me since I can no longer trust my in-laws and I do not want this particular deposit to be used for things of the world. I will want you to get back to me that you will be absolutely honest about this transaction and you will use this money to the Glory of God. Also you have to assure me you will keep this transaction confidential and you will be willing to contact the finance firm which is located in Canada which has branches in the United Kingdom and finalize all necessary formalities as to the release of the fund to you. I will also want to know a little more about you regarding your life, your spiritual life, what you do for a living so as for me to know you will be able to complete this.
At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls and I barely could complete this email with assistance because of my failing health, please pardon any discrepancies and I do not know when my time will be up so I require your urgent response if you are trustworthy and willing to help me finalize this transactions that I will immediately write my chamber to prepare a court injunction/power of attorney making you beneficiary to my fund as all other documents are with the finance firm as I sent it to them for safe keeping so my family members will not lay their hands on it. To prepare this document I will require your full names and address. With this document you will contact the finance firm to arrange the transfer of the fund to you. As soon as you have received the fund then you will help me set up charity or distribute it to charity organizations and hospitals. God permitting, I pray to be alive when you receive this fund and start this project so that you can visit me here if you wish to.
with love,
Mrs. Barbara Gunnarsson.

Subject: Proceeding by faith

Dear Friend,

God bless you and I thank you so much for your response, commitment and assurance towards the use of this fund to help the less privileged which has been my dream as well as my late husband. I want you to know that God definitely has a purpose for this and he will surely guide you through this noble course even when I am not alive my spirit will be with you but always pray for me.

I have contacted my lawyer and also the bank as I am awaiting a favorable response from them so that we can get to the concluding part of this project. All we need from each other now is faith, trust and truthfulness in each other.I have already issued a letter of authority to the finance firm in CANADA making you beneficiary to my deposit. I take this decision because my time is short and I want to dispense this fund in the right channel before I leave this sinful world. God has led me to you and I want you to know that as far as you have heeded to his call he will not let you down.

I believe the bank will confirm my decision and send me back an acceptance letter tomorrow. So as soon as I hear back from the branch manager I shall provide you the contact details so that you can get in touch with them for the funds to be released I can count on you and trust you because this is a huge sum of money to you.

God bless you and please do not let me down. Even if I am not watching you, please do act like I am with you and do the best to make sure this funds are used for what I wish for. Its hard trusting you but by faith we are made stronger than anything else and mercy will not allow you fail this task because it' s all in your hands now. I will only send you the bank details for contact with the bank when I receive an email from you assuring me that you are fully ready to take up this project with all your heart and promise to keep every information shared between us this day strictly confidential to your eyes only till this process is fully completed and the funds transferred to you in your country. This is because the greedy relatives of my husband have a very strong network or cartel monitoring my financial dealings but I want to keep this away from them.

I will get back to you once I have received any information and confirmation from the bank and also my lawyer. Furthermore, please do acknowledge the receipt of this mail finalizing whether you are 100% ready or not. As soon as I get your response as well as receive any information from the bank, I will send you the bank' s contact details and also make the final order for them to pay you upon your contact with them. Once more, get back to me at your earliest convenient with assurance to be loyal as previously promised.

Finally, please beware of some false people trying to contact you on my behalf as I believe they are identity theft scammers.

Your sister in the lord.

Subject: Bank Details

Dear Friend,

God bless you for your zeal and seriousness to help me out in this
charitable course and he will surely bless you for that. I want you to know
that I am a very devoted Christian and do only the things directed by my
father. I contacted you purely on divine direction and I want you to know
that I have prayed about this divine direction to you as God has appointed
you for this project to bless you and your family. All I need is absolute
trust and honesty when these funds get to you that it will be used to
accomplish the purpose for which I have contacted you for. When my late
husband was alive we were so much in love and fond of ourselves that we
combined our middle names John and Alice to become Joyce whom we always used
to call our selves and I will want you to set up a charity home or
foundation with this name when the fund has been released to you. Dear you
are now my only source of strength and hope and you alone can make me happy
if only Joyce dreams come to pass then I shall wait upon the lord with joy
in my heart. Please do not disappoint me because you know what it takes to
entrust so much money on you.

I have already issued a letter of authority to the finance firm regarding my
appointing you as my beneficiary and you are now the sole and sole
beneficiary to this fund totaling 6,143,728.00 US Dollar and you can keep
10% for yourself and your family for the services rendered by you. My
finance firm advised me that such huge amount of money cannot be easily
transferred from Canada since I am keeping it as a secret from my husband’s
family due to their greedy behavior thus proper and legal arrangements have
been made with their London branch in which you will be transferring the
money from. As I told you in my last email my health is not too good now
which means sometimes it will be difficult for me to be on the Internet and
send messages to you but do send me messages and my prayer and blessings is
with you. Also as soon as the funds get to you let me know so that I can
still advise you on things to do.

The contact details and email of the finance firm is below and you have to
contact them immediately via email at foreigntransferdept@uobnkltd.com as I have
already issued the authority to them and they will be expecting to hear from
you so that they can arrange on how the funds will be transferred to you.
You have to provide the bank with piece of information they will need to
speedup the process of release of fund to you so that transfer can commence
without delay. I want you to contact the bank stating only my deposit File
No: Reference: UOB/2009/678/51829/CA-UK for easy trace of my file, and also
note that you “MUST” open an account with this branch of UNITED OVERSEAS
BANK LTD. before my deposit willed to you can be credited in your name and
thereafter you can transfer to anywhere you want in the world just to avoid any traces from my in-laws because they have a strong network/cartel monitoring my financial dealings. If you follow
the instructions from the bank directly, within the next 3 working days you
will have this funds transferred to you and available for use.

Subject: Re: Fwd: Contract Papers Needed

Dear Friend,

Thanks for the update. Sorry I forgot to give you that in my previous mail as I actually did not know it would be needed by the bank. Please find attached the contract paper  appointing you as my sole beneficiary. You are expected to forward it to the bank to enable you proceed with the bank for the activation of your online account.
Furthermore, I would want you to focus on this below because Poverty and sickness is world-wide. Charity is needed around the world (Americas, United Kingdom, Africa, etc.) The basic needs of all people are food, clothing and shelter. Additional needs are health care and education.

My preliminary thoughts are to focus on children, the elderly and homelessness. Options include:
1. Food and clothing banks
2. Scholarships to children and young adults
3. Housing for the homeless 
4. Assistance for the elderly
5. Health care.

6. Donating some of the fund to Christian organizations that are winning the lost and helping the poor.

7. A free treatment clinic attached to the home for the elderly that you would be setting up.

8. Employ professional counselors that can counsel abused women who have been raped as well as young single mother that are drug addicts.

Finally, keep me informed as soon as you receive fund in your account as I am happy that my dreams are coming true gradually.

Thank you.
Barbara Gunnarsson.
