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 Friend,

I am happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the co-operation of a new partner from Paraguay. Although you might find it difficult to remember me, since it has indeed been a very long time.

However, I am much elated and privileged to contact you again after this long time. While it takes faith and courage to remember old friends and at the same time, to show gratitude to them in-spite of circumstances that may have disrupted our transaction ultimately not to work out as we projected.

Nevertheless, I take this liberty to inform you that, the transaction we were pursuing then together, finally worked out by the infinite mercy of GOD Almighty and I've decided to contact you, just to let you know the present situation.
I must inform you also that I am presently in Paraguay for business negotiations and establishment, and, with a sincere heart, I have raised and signed an International Cashier's Bank Draft, to the tune of US$10,000,000.00 (Ten Million United States Dollars) in your name as COMPENSATION for your dedication and humane contribution as it were. I will be very busy here at the moment because of the investment projects that me and my new partners are having at hand.

The bank draft is under Rev.mike james care ,Do not also accept any fax or telephone calls that do not come from Rev. Father. He is the only person I instructed and directed on how to deliver the draft to you.

Therefore, I implore you to contact him immediately you read this message for further information on how to receive your draft, for I have conscience as a human being, and I really appreciated your tremendous effort and contribution made to make things work out but which we couldn't complete due to circumstances beyond our control.

In view of this, you are to contact Rev Father in the person of Rev.Father Eric Maxwell. Find below his contact.

Contact person: Rev.Mike James
E-mail: revmikejames@ymail.com
Contact Phone number: +234 8103189517

Note: He is waiting to hear from you so that he can ship the ICBD to your residence/office address as you may instruct him to, BE WARNED ABOUT FRAUDULENT LETTER.

Take note and bear in mind that the International Cashier Bank Draft has a validity period of 30 banking days, as such it is expedient you contact him and thus have modality put in place to conclude this arrangement in the earliest possible time.
