Miss Young

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.

Dear Friend,

I want to thank you for helping me out with my transaction which went successfuly through the help of another patner from Dubai, I am now in Australia where I am now investing my own share of the fund. I was meant to understand that you have not received your compensation as of yet due to some certain circumstances.

Having reviewed all the obstacles and problems surrounding the transfer of your compensation payment of USD$2,500,000.00 and your inability to meet up with some charges levied against you due to the past transfer options, I have concluded an arrangement with the Board of Directors of Bank Of Africa (BOA) to issue you a CORPORATE VISA CARD where your payment will be uploaded and mailed to you through by courier service.

I was just notified by the board of directors of BOA that your compensation Payment has now been uploaded into this CORPORATE VISA CARD and also registered with UPS courier for delivery to you.

For your information, The delivery charges has been paid and your package is supposed to have been shipped to you but they insisted that you must re-confirm to them your current delivery address to ensure accurate delivery.

MOST IMPORTANT: Due to the content of the package, UPS mandated that before your package will be shipped, Customs Duty Tag must be procured according to the New Customs working policy and the essence of such Document is to ensure a hitch-free delivery and the amount for this Customs Duty Tag is only USD$255.99.

Therefore reconfirm your current delivery address (i.e 1. Full Names, 2. Delivery Address and 3. Telephone Number) to UPS courier in the name of:

Joel Mathew
UPS Benin
BP485, 3 Rue du Gouverneur Fourn
Contonou
Benin
Tel: +229 9790 6867
Email: upscustomerscare@qatar.io

Contact UPS immediately and re-confirm your current delivery address and phone numbers as requested to enable them deliver the package to you once you have sent them the fee for the Customs Duty Tag.

Thanks,
Keneth Ogini
