Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. But he does not give up if he thinks it is still possible to convince the victim. He could try a new scam with hidden millions or a big lottery winning. Another approach is a compensation letter where he promises the victim a big sum as compensation. The compensation money does not exist, - it is simply the start of a new scam. The letter below is an example of such a letter.

Dear :
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise owing to the fact that you may not remember me. I contacted you sometimes in the past concerning a funds transfer which for some reasons I didn't conclude with you. I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Trinidad and Tobago. Presently I'm in Trinidad and Tobago for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.

Now contact my secretary in London Uk, his name is Mr Wisdom Godwin on Email (mrsmaryjohnson70@yahoo.com) and ask him to send to you the total of $2,500,000.00 which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter in the past. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touch with my secretary +447035953741 and instruct him where to send the amount to you.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the sufferings at that time. In the moment, I’m very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand.
Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with +447035953741 , he will send the amount to you without any delay.

Regards,

Brother Edward kong
