Miss Young

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.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA.
TINUBU SQUARE, P.M.B. 12194,
LAGOS, NIGERIA


THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA IS VERY MUCH CONCERNED THAT IN SPITE OF THE VARIOUS EFFORTS MADE IN THE PAST THROUGH PRESS STATEMENTS TO COMBAT THE ADVANCE FEE FRAUD/TELEFAX SCAM,IT HAS CONTINUED UNABATED,WITH INCREASING SOPHISTICATION.THE BANK IS ALSO WORRIED BY THE RECKLESS ABANDON WITH WHICH NAMES OF SOME TOP CENTRALBANK OF NIGERIA OFFICIALS ARE OFTEN FRAUDULENTLY USED BY THE FRAUDSTERS TO LEND CREDIBILITY AND RESPECTABILITY TO THE SPURIOUS TRANSACTIONS.


FOR INSTANCE, MRS JOAN GOFORTH IS A UNITED STATE CITIZEN WHO HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE COMPENSATION MANY YEARS AGO AND HAD PAID OVER $US14,000.00 FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS WHILE IN THE UNITED STATE, TRYING TO GET HER PAYMENT ALL TO NO AVAIL.

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS TAKING A MULTIPRONGED APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM OF NIGERIA CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. WORKING PLANS HAS BEEN DRAFTED TO COMBAT THIS ISSUE, AND A NUMBER OF RECONMMENDATIONS HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED ON COMPENSATING SOME VICTIMS WITH GENIUE CLEARIFICATIONS OF PROOF BECAUSE IT IS BEING ACTIVELY PURSUED ON THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FOREIGN POLICY FRONTS.

SO GIVEN THE FREQUENCY WITH WHICH SOME GULLIBLE PEOPLE STILL FALL VICTIM TO THE BUSINESS SCAMS,THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA DEEMS IT NECESSARY ONCE AGAIN,TO RE-ISSUE THE PRESS STATEMENT (FIRST ISSUED IN 1991) TO ALERT THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY,OF THE INCREASING SPAT OF THE ATTEMPTS BY INTERNATIONAL SYNDICATE OF FRAUDSTERS TO DEFRAUD THEM.

HOWEVER DRIVEN BY GREED AND THE URGE FOR QUICK MONEY, MANY HAVE IGNORED THE WARNING BY THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA. THE AUTHORS OF THE CIRCULAR LETTERS WHO BEAR NIGERIAN NAMES ARE PART OF AN INTERNATIONAL SYNDICATE WHO ARE OUT TO DUPE GULLIBLE OVERSEAS RECIPIENTS WHO ARE THEMSELVES BOTH VILLAINS AND VICTIMS IN THE BOGUS “BUSINESS” DEALS.

THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA,THEREFORE,WISHES ONCE AGAIN,TO WARN ALL RECIPIENTS OF SUCH FRAUDULENT LETTERS,ETC. THAT THEY DO NOT EMANATE FROM THE BANK AND THAT THE BANK HAS NO KNOWLEDGE OR RECORDS, WHATSOEVER, OF THE PURPORTED CLAIMS OR TRANSFERS OR EVEN THE RELATED ALLEGED CONTRACTS.

RECIPIENTS SHOULD, AS SUCH, EXERCISE CAUTION AND IMMEDIATELY CONTACT THEIR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES OR THE INTERNATIONAL POLICE ORGANIZATION (INTERPOL) NEAREST TO THEM IN ORDER TO HELP TRACK DOWN THE INTERNATIONAL CROOKS AND SWINDLERS. AND ALSO THE COMMERCIAL CUNSELOR AT THE U.S. EMBASSY IN LAGOS, NIGERIA ALSO STAND READY TO ASSIST ANY U.S. FIRM SEEKING INFORMATION ABOUT A PARTICULAR NIGERIAN COMPANY OR THE NIGERIAN BUSINESS CLIMATE IN GENERAL.

THE BANK WILL NOT BEAR ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS SUSTAINED BY ANY PERSON OR CORPORATION THAT FAILS TO HEED THIS WARNING.
