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.

My Dear Good Friend,

This is to thank you for your effort. I understand that your hands were tied. Do not worry. I have succeeded; the money has been transferred into the account provided by a newly found friend of mine in Australia.

To compensate for your past assistance and commitments have dropped an International Certified Bank Draft of $950.000.00 for you.

I am in Australia with my family presently. I do intend to establish some business concerns here, and possibly buy some properties. Contact my Secretary in Benin-Republic Mr. Bright Peterson Phone number (+229 97848250) you can call him on you email him with this email address (bright.peterson11@hotmail.fr) Forward my mail to him, and then ask him to send the cheque to you.

Take good care of yourself.
