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.

Subject: Hello from Paraguay

Hello my dear.
How are you, i presume fine.  is me Isabel, i hope you still remember me. I brought good news for you. Can you guess what the news is all about. Well, it is all about freedom, happiness and joy. It  pleases me  to inform you that i am no more a refugee. All my predicaments has became a story to tell now, and i am happy that you are one of the hearer of the ugly story which is now a good news. The fund had been successful  transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay. I am currently in Paraguay now and the transferred money is under the management of my beloved partner. All my plan and concern  now is to go back to studies. Meanwhile, your  attention to me during those days was not forgotten by me despite that our aim was not successfully carried out. 

Now you need to contact the Reverend who was my counselor and a good father to me when I was in refugee Camp, Dakar, Senegal. His name is Rev  Patrick Divine and his email address is  (Rev_partrick10devin@yahoo.com ), while his phone number is
( +221778554433 )

I instructed him to send you a Package with a Draft check of $150,000.00 (One Hundred and fifty Thousand US Dollars) inside it, which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempt to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touched with the Reverend in Senegal now and instruct him where to send the draft to you

At the moment, I' m very busy with my educational planning and some projects with which I and my new partner are having at hand, and also preparing for my wedding  which is going to take place soonest. To be sincere, the lord is good and i am very grateful because i later survived from that heavy storms of my life

Please I will like you to accept this token with good faith as this is from the bottom of my heart, and also do comply with Reverend Patrick Divine directives so that he will send the draft to you without any delay.

Finally, remember that I had forwarded all the instruction to Reverend Patrick Divine who have been a source of inspirations to me since i was in the refugees camp, and also he was the one that helped me through with all assistance including the confidence with my new Partner, so i gave him all instructions on your behalf for you to receive the Package, so feel free to get in touch with him so that he will send the Package containing the money, to you without any delay.

Further-more, you may not be receiving any messages from me because my new partner here does not accept me talking with people now due to the way things went between me and him, so take note and do not expect my mail now because am very busy at the moment. Thanks and God bless you and your family.
