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.

God bless you,

I have instructions from Miss Jennifer Oneil to send to you a certified bank draft bearing US$300,000.00, Bank draft is not deductible or transferable until it get's to the care of the beneficiary, you can only receive it by allowing me to send it to you through a courier service firm from here and the draft has nothing to do with drugs and money laundry.

Meanwhile our local post office has been grounded and neglected by our government due to terrible corruptions so it's no longer in use and citizens had no choice than to start using private courier firms and some like Fedex, DHL are very far from the area we are leaving so we usually send by private couriers because it it's sensitive and not all courier services are authorized to lift bank drafts.

I will go and confirm from a reliable courier agency and the insurance on how they can deliver this bank draft (Cashier's cheque) to your place, but you will need to urgently re-confirm to me your full names, current direct telephone numbers and current contact address which you would like to receive the draft from the courier firm to avoid unwarranted mistakes. Thanks for your understanding. I wait for your reply soon.

Reverend John Williams

Greetings to you ,

This is to let you know that i have consulted the courier service (TNT) and they have agreed to deliver the draft to you within 2-3 days but insisted that we must fulfill their service charge of 280 EUROS equivalent for delivery including insurance fee of the valued parcel.

Please use this name stated below to send the courier service delivery charge through western union money transfer, i am very busy with the church activities this period, send it with my name which i listed below to you so that i can collect the money from western union, and settle the fee for both courier and insurance which is 280 EUROS equivalent to our local currency.

Name: John Williams
Address: 64 citi fadja, Dakar Senegal.
Country: Senegal
State: Dakar

Then forward to me the information below so that i can collect the money here at the western union office.

1) MTCN (Money Transfer Control Numbers)
2) Question
3) Answer
4) The name and address of the sender.

I will get back to you as soon as i receive this information from you and i will scan the copy of the draft and courier airway bill and send to you because i want you to see it before the draft arrives. God bless you,

Peace be unto you.

Greetings to you in the name of the father, the son and the holy ghost, Amen

This is to let you know that i have waited for you to get back to me for the bank draft which your ex partner left for you but i couldn't hear from you again, after much thought, i decided to deposit the draft with Apex Courier Delivery Company here in Dakar Senegal for safety before i traveled out of the country for a course i am undergoing and it will last for three months, so i wont be around for the period of this three months. In this regard, i will advise you to contact the Apex Courier Delivery Company as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you before the expiration date.

For your information, i have paid for the delivery charges for your bank draft but they will only demand the sum of ($98.00) ninety eight dollars for security and demurrage fees which you will send to the courier & security company to deliver your draft direct to your postal address in your country. Again, do not be deceived by anybody to pay more than $98.00, i would have paid for you but the security department warns that i should not pay for security reasons, they really need to hear from you and demands that the payment comes direct from your destination to avoid some unwarranted mistakes. Therefore you need to contact the courier & security company immediately and pay for the charges which will not exceed the sum of $98.00

Below are the contact information of the delivery company:

Apex Courier Delivery Company Senegal.
Telephone number +221338371702
E-mail: apex3deliverycompany@gmail.com
Registration Number: wwdsc100/2013
Reference Number:apex/wwdsc/0000453
Code Numbercsc/6545

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your postal address and direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the delivery and let me repeat again, try to write them through their email as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their security keeping fee of $98 for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your draft.
Note. Apex courier delivery company do not know the contents of the parcel. I registered it as my photographs (pictures) being sent to a friend overseas. They do not know that it contains a bank draft of such a huge amount of money. This is to avoid them tampering with the package,do not let them know the content,i am waiting to hear the good news from you.

May God bless you so abundantly,
