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.

Payment Purpose: Inheritance Fund Release
Payment Value: $5,500,000.00 dollars
Authourized Paying Bank: First Bank of Nigeria
Transaction Reference Code: FBN/KTT/27890/0000/010
Payment Approval Date: 11/08/2011

Dear Beneficiary,

My name is DR. ALEX DURU. I am the newly appointed Director First Bank Of Nigeria and the 10th Director of the First Bank of Nigeria. I assumed duty as Director, First Bank of Nigeria on April 4, 2011 at the Bank's Corporate Head Office in Abuja following the confirmation of my nomination by the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on April 4, 2011.

However, acting in my capacity as the newly-appointed Director of the (FBN), I have been mandated by the Senate National Assembly to check through the statutory disk of every payment pending during the last quarter of the year. Hence, your payment file has been forwarded to my desk for final approval. Therefore, after vetting and verification about the source and origin of your funds, I am convinced 100% that the $5,500,000.00 dollars part payment is a legitimate contract/inheritance claim. Hence, I have granted approval for the release of the $5,500,000.00 dollars in your favor.

For this reason, your payment has been rightfully approved and will be paid out directly into your bank account via "automatic swift transfer" from our Electronic transfer unit. Already, all transfer processing has been concluded in line with the new (FBN) Payment Policy. But before the $5,500,000.00 dollars can be credited into your bank account, a "Payment Release Code" must be issued to you personally from the Electronic Transfer Unit, which will enable your funds to be credited into your bank account within 2 hours. Issuance of the "Payment Release Code" is in total compliance with the Principles of the Banking Codes on Money Laundering and it is also in accordance with the new (FBN) Payment Policy. Hence, issuance of the "Payment Release Code" attract a fee of $50 dollars ONLY; and the $50 dollars is the ONLY FEE you will be requested to pay for the final release of your funds. Every and all other fees will be deducted at source automatically.

However, on the note of receiving your inheritance funds, you are requested to forward the details of your receiving bank account; as well as make arrangement to secure and send the issuance fee of $50 dollars for the "Payment Release Code". The $50 dollar fee must be sent through Western Union or Money Gram with the name of the Payment officer at the Electronic Transfer Unit (MR. EDWIN UZOMA) as per the below details:


I am expecting to receive your earliest reply and details of your receiving bank account, as well as the details of payment for the $50 dollars. My direct telephone number is +234-702.552.5065

Yours Sincerely,
Director First Bank Of Nigeria

P.S: Please note that all other authourities handling your payment has been stopped by the FBI. Hence, the (FBN) has been appointed as the sole authourity in-charge of your fund release. Therefore, you are advised to stop further communication with any other office or financial institution handling your payment.
