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.

DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE BEEN NO RESPONSE FROM YOU AND RECENTLY OUR
BANK WAS INFORMED BY A MAN WHO CLAIMED TO BE YOUR CLOSE FRIEND, THAT YOU
ARE DEAD AND YOU AUTHORIZED HIM TO CLAIM YOUR FUND ON YOUR BEHALF.
IF THIS IS NOT TRUE, REPLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE ON THURSDDAY 30TH
WILL BE THE DAY YOUR FRIEND WILL BE SIGNING THE LAST DOCUMENT TO CLAIM YOUR
FUND ON YOUR BEHALF.
IF YOUR RESPONSE IS NOT GOTTEN BEFORE THE GIVEN DATE, YOUR FUND WILL BE
AUTHORIZED AND CLAIMED BY YOUR FRIEND WHO HAS FILED FOR THE CLAIM OF YOUR
FUND AND WE WILL HAVE REASONS TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE TRULY DEAD.
THIS FINANCIAL INSTITUTION WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS
BECAUSE WE TRIED TO CONTACT YOU SEVERAL TIMES BUT THERE WAS NO RESPONSE.
