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.

I trust you are in good health with your family. I am very happy to inform you about our last success in getting this fund secured under a cooperation of a new partner from Ghana and I hope you will understand that it was neither our fault nor yours.

Presently my boss is in Takoradi-GHANA with his new partner working on some Agric investment project. You can be reaching him via this phone number +233 289548198.

He will be investing part of his fund in some Agric project which his new partner initiated and to be honest to you, we have not yet made up our minds on where and how to invest rest of this fund.

Before my boss left for GHANA yesterday, he instructed me to send a bank draft of US$1, 000,000 to TNT Express, a courier agency pending when you will contact them with your instructions for the delivery and I have just deposited this draft to the TNT office here this morning.

Please contact the TNT Express via this email: courierservicedept@mail2world.com

That is what my boss instructed me to do in showing his appreciation on your past efforts and attempts to assist him despite the failure
you ran into completing this transaction with him. This is to compensate you and also to take care of your expenses during this project then.

Mr. John please contact the courier agency and ask them of your package,please ask them to send it to your new or current address which you will provide for them.

Once again we do really appreciated your efforts much, because without you this goal wouldn't have been archieved somehow. Feel free and get in touch with the courier agency to send you the bank draft.

Thanks and regards

Jetro Shepherd.
