Miss Young

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.

Dear Sir,

I am Joseph Tano, Ivorian, and the son of late Dr. Fondah Tano, former chairman of Mining & Metals Ventures Limited Cote d'Ivoire, and forner Administration and Finance Coordinator at Newmont Ventures Limite. After the assassination of my father, during the Ivorian Civil War while in control of my village Côte d'Ivoire. While I was searching for some information in our family villa, I found the key to my late father's under ground security vault, where I discovered documents concerning metallic trunk boxes containing twenty eight million U.S. dollars (US$28,000.000.00) with 250 kilos alluvial gold dust of 24 karat with 92% purity.

It will interest you to know that my father and my mother had successfully lifted these trunks boxes and lodged it into a security company in Ghana under the coverage of family treasures. This was sometime last 2 years when they both made a trip to Ghana.It was unfortunate that in January last 2 years, my father was assassinated. Upon his assassination, a month later my mother took off with my younger sister and me to stay in Ghana here in West Africa. We are the two children my parents had) we went together with the documents covering the deposits of the trunk boxes containing the gold dust, diamond and the sum of ($28,000,000.00) with the security company inGhana While here in Ghana my mother declared for asylum. But later regretted for doing so, because by our present status we are no longer entitled to operate an account with such money which is concealed in the trunk boxes unknown to the security company. After a while, my mother was privately planning how to transfer the boxes with its contents outside of Ghana where it can be properly used for the betterment of the family. We were working on this arrangement when my mother now took a risk to sneak into Côte d'Ivoire to bring the remaining boxes to Ghana. Unfortunately the same people got my mother assassinated. We became stuck! I am now left with my only sister.

We do not want the government of Ghana to know about this deposit. I have thought about how I can send these boxes out of Ghana, for several days and sleepless nights, until when it occurred to me to seek a reliable individual who will be of assistance in getting these boxes with the currency outside Ghana to any country in Asia, Europe or America. I started looking on the internet where i came about your details online and knowing the ricks involve in trusting someone i do not know or have meet before but still i feel it is a great pleasure to have picked you out of many to tell you of this issue.

Your able assistance is being sought to lift this money to your country. I am suggesting that (20%) of the total money be given to you, for your assistance and also from onward investment overseas. This is pertinent, since I am a refugee, it will not be advisable for me to operate such huge amount in my account.

Because of the confidential nature of the business, you are advised to handle the issue with utmost secrecy.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Yours faithfully,
Joseph Tano
