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.


[16/5/2014 2:11:07 PM] andah.k13: Dear Young,

I am sorry to contact you unannounced through this medium and i pray that my decision to contact you will be given a genuine approval considering the fact that we haven't met each other before.

I am Mr. Kobby Andah, an Account Auditor working with a bank here in Ghana West Africa. I have been searching for the one who bears this last name " Young " .so when i saw your name on Skype i was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist each other.Please let me explain this to you,it will be of mutual benefit to both of us if you will assist me.

One Richard Young a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit with my bank in 2008 valued at US$7,500,000.00 United State Dollars.The due date for this deposit contract was on 16TH of January 2011,Sadly Richard traveled to japan and was among the death victims of the 2011 Earthquake disaster that happened in Tokyo Japan killing over 9,000 people. He was in Tokyo on a business trip and that was how he met his death,may his soul rest in peace.My bank management is yet to know about his death,i got to know about it because i was his account officer and we later became close friends. He Richard did not state any next of kin in his account file when he deposited the funds with my bank because he was not married and had no children.

Last week my Bank Management requested that Richard should give instructions on what to do about his funds if to renew the contract.I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation because if my Bank Directors happen to know that Richard is dead and did not state any next of kin in his account file, they will take the funds for their personal use, but I don't want that to happen.

I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account since you bear same last name with him and my bank will release the funds to you.It is better we claim the money than allowing my Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person,so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, 50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own private business which has been my dream.

Please Let me know your mind on this as soon as possible and We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response through my private email address: kobby_andah1@hotmail.com

We can as well discuss this on phone; let me know when you will be available to speak with me on Skype.

Have a nice day and remain blessed.

Best Regards,

Mr. Kobby Andah.

Dear Sir,

I have submitted your account information to the bank for their verification and approval of the transfer of your fund After which if positive the International telex and wire department of the bank will approve the transfer of your fund to your nominate account by Telegraphic transfer.

On my oral inquiry of the status of your account, I got a surprising news ! The bank has worked out the interest your fund uncured all this years it was in deposit .The total amount to be transferred to you is US$9,748,000.00 representing interest from 2008 to 20013. The bank will inform you officially about this.

I would have been given some vital bank documents for your attention but I do not have any empowerment from you .The bank demand a Power of attorney from the High Court of Justice Ghana and this is going to cost you the sum of $350 US Dollars . You are to send the fees via western union Transfer to my secretary details below.

Receiver name :Alberta Dzosa
Country :Ghana
City :Accra
Test Question:Yellow
Test Answer:Yellow

As soon as you send the fees ,i shall proceed the the High court of Justice Ghana to obtain the Power of attorney and i will send a copy to the bank for their approval and also a copy will be sent to you for your record keep.

Attached to this email is the application form given to me by the bank and the sample of the Power of attorney together with my Identity. You are required to fill in the required information on the form and send it back to me together with the fees .This will however be subject to if you still desire me representing you for this claim

For my terms of service ,you will be paying me 0.2% of the total fund but the entire payment will be when you have received the fund . I verified at the bank that your fund is a " Bonded trust fund " so it will not be possible to deduct any amount from it in the pursuit of the release of your fund. This status was used by late Richard Young to protect the fund from mismanagement .On this note it will suffice if you give me a call .If possible call at receiving this message .

Dear Sir,
    I was at the bank all day yesterday but could not receive any response from the bank.I am off to the bank now . Today I am sure to have it because yesterday some of my colleagues had responses in their different dealings with the bank for their clients.
The Personal Assistant to the Director of International Remittance told me that the response was available yesterday but it was too late to contact me. He however assured me that everything is ok. I only have to expect the paper work from the bank today.

 I will soon be in the bank and will communicate with you the instant I receive any word from the bank .
