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.

Dear Friend,
I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred to a swiss account with the co-operation of a new partner from Paraguay who is an international business man. In the process of our efforts to transfer the money this time, we discovered a reason why we could not complete the transfer which was due to some corrupt bank/ministries officials, which has been underchecked following a lot of complaint and petitions by some scam victims.
Presently I'm in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I did not forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how. So I have given my Secretary instruction to send your Debit Card/ATM which contains the sum of $850.000.00 (Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars) on your name which I have used as a compensation for your past effort.
In order to proceed with this transaction, you will be required to contact the head of operation in-charge of your transfer (Mr. Akin Stephen) via e-mail.
Kindly look below to find appropriate contact information:
E-MAIL ADDRESS: akinstephen2012@e-mail.ua
Ask him to send you the total $850.000.00 Debit Card/ATM (Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars) which I 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 my secretary Mr. Akin Stephen and instruct him where to send the Debit Card/ATM to you. Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the suffering at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which I and my new partner are having at hand.
Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary on your behalf to receive that Debit Card/ATM containing $850.000.00, so feel free to get in touch with Mr. Akin Stephen and he will send the Debit Card/ATM to you without any delay.
Best Regards.
Mr. William Peters
