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.

Please be advised that the
federal government of Nigeria through the ministry of finance has directed us to revisit all contracts awarded/executed from 1999 till date and make recommendation for the payment of your contract fund where necessary. This is in line with what the government termed “Rescheduling of all special debts owed contractors/inheritors and fiduciaries”.
You are therefore advised to provide your local banking details and your contract or inheritance certificate of approval to this office to authenticate you as the rightful beneficiary we
have got on file for payment. We therefore regret any inconvenience you may have been subjected to in the past in the hands of impostors who have through their actions caused huge embarrassment to the government.
