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.

Dear one, Please be honest with me
I am orphan
I am writing at this hour because of my status as a
refugee in Dakar Senegal
I am an orphanage child since seven years, as a result of the
assassination of my parents by rebel group which left me with no one
except me that survived by the help of Red cross team that brought me
to Senegal. And my father was the then attorney general of the
federation and justice minister of Ivory coast that made him a well
known man in my country and his involvement in politics he lost his
life together with my mother He deposited 3.9 million us dollars in UK
.and I have written to the bank to claim the money as the next of kin
because of my deplorable condition in Senegal and the bank replied that
due to my underage of 17 years and refugee status that I am not
qualified to claim the money that I have to look for a reliable foreign
partner to claim the funds by signing a cheque of the total sum in your
names for me that is the only condition the bank gave me.
now I want to know if you are honest and reliable because if I lose
this money I will suffer all my life on earth and I will not finish my
education which is the most important thing to me. so be honest to me
if you will betray me please tell me, and I want you to treat this with
the absolute confidence and hold it to yourself without somebody
knowing for my safety.
