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: THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORT:YOUR $300,000 (THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ) COMPENSATION

Greetings ,

I contacted you some time ago in respect to the funds transfer of my
deceased client . I want to sincerely thank you for your help
initially although you
backed out thinking that the funds transfer was illegal and a scam.
aWell, everything was legal
and legit and went well through the assistance of a Briton, the funds
transfer was a success.

I am on vacation now with my family in United Kingdom. In a way to
appreciate your kind gesture, I have dropped a cashier cheque of Three
Hundred Thousand USD ( $300,000) in your

name instructing my personal accountant Mr. Stephen Edem to pay the
sum to you. This is my little way of saying thank you for your initial help.

You are to contact him (Mr. Stephen Edem) on email
stephenedem10@hotmail.com or call

+ 2348135540107 .

Regards,
ALA OLORUN
