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.

My brother in Islam,

I received the message you forwarded to me from the bank, actually i dont have to touch anything here, it is the bank that you sent you the informations so that you can use the informations to send the fee to the bank. As soon as you make the payment, you have to send the payment slip to the bank for confirmation ok.

Please make sure you do that very fast so that we can be expecting our money very soon.

You have to call me immediately you send the fee to the bank so that i can keep my eyes on the ground here in the bank to make sure every thing is under control ok.

I wait to hear good news from you soon.

Your Islamic brother,
Mr Ibrahim Farah.

I'm sorry but happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Vietnam though i tried my best to involve you in the businnes but God decided the whole situations. Presently i'm in Vietnam 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 Burkinafaso her name is Ms.Hajar Ibrahim on her e-mail address below: ms.hajaribr1@yahoo.com Ask her to send you the total of $400.000.00 which i kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. so feel free and get in touched with my secretary Ms.Hajar Ibrahim and instruct her 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 sufferness at that time.
in the moment, I’m very busy here because of the investment projects which I 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 Ms.Hajar Ibrahim she will send the amount to you without any delay.
