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.

Subject: Re: Your Estate from late Anthony Leung. Reference JLPBTJ6
I am a genealogical investigator currently working on a case that involves you.
My company specializes in probate research to locate missing heirs and
beneficiaries to unclaimed estates in the United Kingdom.
We discovered an unclaimed high value estate belonging to late Anthony
Leung and have been working for the last two years to find a heir to
claim the inheritance.
Late Anthony until his death was a director in an oil company and was
very wealthy. He was never married so it has been difficult to find a
heir hence the reason we have contacted you to claim this inheritance.
We will conduct a probate research to prove your entitlement, and can
submit a claim on your behalf - all at no risk to yourselves.
Note that our services does not cost you a cent upfront as we are paid
10% of the estate we help you recover at the end of the service.
Kindly contact us to confirm your readiness to proceed and for further
Ms. M. Van Persie
