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.

hi my dear

I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the co-operation of a new partner from United State Of America.
Presently i am now in korea for investment projects and building of an Orphanage home in Africa and 2 other countries.meanwhile, i did not forget your past efforts and attempts to assist in transferring those funds despite that you failed me somehow. There is no doubt that you would have helped me if not that you where skeptical and apprehensive over the issue.

Now contact asistant Rev andrew james on email: (revandrew_james@yahoo.in ) and phone +221777186091 ask him to send you a Barclays Bank Draft of $250 ,000.00 us dollars two hundred and fifty thousand us dollars which i raised in your favour for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts and the little care at that time. Thank you very much .So feel free and get in touch with asistant Rev andrew james and give him your address and your new contact telephone number where to send the draft to you.

I am very busy here in korea because of the investment projects which i and the new friend Mr. Kaito Yamato and Mr.Allen Smith Jr are having at hand, I remembered that I had forwarded instruction to Rev andrew james on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with him without any delay. You might not hear from me in 3 months or more from now for security reasons .

Best regards,
linda
