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.

> This is why I decided to use my connections as the Shipment
> officer in charge of the National Security warehouse. (This
> is where all the abandoned consignments in Nigeria are kept
> at the orders of the Government of Nigeria).
> The consignment left Lagos Nigeria yesterday night en-route
> your country via London. It is a metal box, silver in colour
> with a weight of about 150kg, the box is declared as
> containing diplomatic /inheritance documents only. The name
> of the Courier Company based in London is with-held now for
> security reasons but will be given to you when we establish
> stable communication.
> Contact me immediately you receive this email to enable me
> give you further information on the movement of the
> consignment and when it is expected to arrive your country.
> I am doing this for you because I studied your file and
> discovered that you have paid a lot of money before
> abandoning this consignment and I believe you will
> compensate me well when you receive the consignment.
> Note: I know the content of the Box because I could see the
