Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.
If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

I will be glad if you can help me in this transaction because I have lost the contact of my intended recipient. I am ready to do this
transaction with you only if you are ready to keep it secret because I do not need any security problems.
Thank you for your response. I want you to henceforth respond through this i.d because I do not want anybody to know what we are doing. If I prove that you are a very honest person as you seem to sound, I am sure that success in this venture is guaranteed.
I did not include all the confidential information about the transaction in my first message because I wasn't sure whether the message was going to the right person or not hence I have lost the contact already. I have to be frank by saying that you received my message coincidentally but this could also turn to be a blessing for both parties if only you can exercise your honesty after receiving the funds in your bank account because I do not want to be cheated after suffering much to protect the funds in question up to this moment.
I work in the Bank of Africa, Burkina Faso
where the funds are existing currently. Our Branch of the Bank was being used by many African Politicians to divert funds to their Foreign accounts. They did not bother to know how much was transferred because the funds belonged to the state that is why I also decided to put apart the $5.5M in the bank for a long period of years .I have to give you all the required guidelines so that you do not make any mistake .
Most of the politicians are no longer in power and some are dead. There is no security risk because funds are not existing in anybody's name. No one also knows about the secret of the funds except me and already, Budgets have been done many times without any mention of the funds which means it can be legally transferred to any person that I legalize his/her name as the owner.
The Funds can only be transferred to a Foreigner not resident in my country because I placed the funds on a transit escrow account to enable me wire
the funds to any part of the world when required.
I have been afraid to reveal this to anybody that is why I wanted to contact the old Foreign Friend that I knew when he visited my country but hence my message came to you, please indicate to me whether you will be capable to receive the funds honestly and not run away later . I need this money to plan the future of my family .
Confirm to me your readiness to work with me so as to enable me give you guidelines on what to to enable the transfer commence immediately.
You are required also to send your full names/ contact address and Telephone/Fax Numbers to enable me go to register your name at the Federal Ministry of Works as a contractor so that during the transfer, there will be valid documents to show that the money was payment received by you for a contract done. I will help in arranging the paper works .
I expect to get a quick response from you because the Central
Bank has Instructed that all payment be made to customers before the end of the current Banking Quarter of the year.
You can call me on my private line for discussions while I wait to hear from you.
I shall let you know what to do next when I get your response. Feel free to ask questions if any.
Kindly send your response with the following information;
Nominated bank name
Bank Swift Code/Routing Number
Account name /Beneficiary
Valid identification proof
You are to give me information about your age, Marital Status and occupation to enable me know you better and also scan and send to me your passport copy or driving license that will be used to get authorization on your behalf from the Finance Ministry.
Waiting to hear from you.
