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.

said since I do not have documents and even bank account where they can
transfer the money that I should look for a reliable foreign partner
who I trust to stand for me as a trustee to receive the money on my
