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 Dearest,

I ' m happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay. Presently I’m in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total sum.

Meanwhile, I didn' t forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.
Now you will need to contact the former personal secretary to the Rev. Father whom used to be a Good-mother to me when i was in Dakar, her name is Mrs Uwa. and her email address is as follows : libian_uwa@yahoo.com Ask her to send you a certified bank draft of $300.000.00 which I prepared and kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter.
I appreciated your efforts at that time very much.

So feel free and get in touched with Mrs Libian Uwa and instruct her where to send you the money.
Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share our joy after all the sufferings at that time.

In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which me and my new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to Mrs.Libian Uwa on your behalf to receive that money.

Therefore feel free to get in touch with her and she will send the amount to you without any delay. Take care and bye for now.
Yours truly

Hello my dearest.
How are you today? I believe you are doing well, please don�t be
surprise about this message.

I am more than happy reading your reply today. My dear like I told you
in my first mail, my name is Miran Matine from Ivory coast in west
Africa Presently I am residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar
Senegal as a result of the civil war going on in my country. I am 23
years old girl 5'8" tall.

My father (DR WILLIAM MATINE) was the personal adviser to the former
head of state (Late DR ROBERT GUEIYA) before the rebels attacked our
house one early morning and killed him alongside with my mother It is
only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a near by
country Senegal where I am living now.

Please I will like to know more about you. Your likes and dislikes and
what you are doing presently. When I read your mail today is give me
full joy and happiness, I hope I have gotten the honest person which I
have been searching. Thank you once again I will like to see you face
to face soonest, my dear i will like to be part of your life.

Mine here is a little bit hot over here in Dakar Senegal. In this
refugee we are only allowed to go out only some times in a week. Its
just like one staying in the prison and I hope with your help and by
Gods grace I will come out here soon.

I don't have any relatives now whom I can go to all my relatives ran
away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Rev. David
George who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) here in the
refugee he has been very nice to me since I came here but i am not
living with him rather i am leaving in the Female hostel because the
refugee have two hostels one for men the other for women. The PASTOR
Tel number is

+221 777929375

I will being waiting for your call as soon as you received this
message; if you call tell PASTOR DAVID GEORGE that you want to speak
with me he will send for me in the hostel.

As a refugee here I don't have any right or privilege to any thing, be
it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country. I
want to go back to my studies because I only attended my first year
before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now
took place.

Please listen to this, I have my late father's statement of account
and death certificate here with me which I will send to you latter,
because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a
leading bank in Europe which he used my name as the next of kin, the
amount in question is $6.5M (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand

So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and
from it you can send some money for me to get my traveling documents
and air ticket to come over to meet with you.

I kept this secret to people in the refugee here the only person that
knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me. So
in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't
tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if
people get to know about it.

Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust and
honest I deposed on you. I like honest and understanding people,
truthful and a human of vision, truth and hard working. My favorite
language is English but our language is French but I speak English
very fluently.

Meanwhile i will like you to call me to prove you�re honest and also
to hear my voice and i also will hear yours. Have a nice day and read
my message careful. please treat this very urgent to save my life, if
you are willing to help respond quickly so that i will give you all
the details about the bank where the money was deposited to.

Waiting to hear from you soonest.

Miss Young
