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.

I contacted you some time ago in respect to the funds transfer of my
deceased client . I want to sincerely thank you for your help initially
although you backed out thinking that the funds transfer was illegal and a
scam. Well, everything was legal and legit and went well, the funds
transfer was a success!!!
I am on vacation now in benin republic with my family. In a way to
appreciate your kind gesture, I have instructed my bank to transfer the
sum of one million two hundred thousand USD ($1,200,000.00) to you via a
certified Bank Draft/check so that you can claim and cash in your bank.
This is my little way of saying thank you for your initial help.
Please send to me the following information as soon as possible at my
private email address email@example.com so that I can forward it to
my bank for the necessary modalities in the transfer of your Bank draft.
1. Your full Name
