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 am seeking an immediate & urgent assistance, of
a reliable Egyptian businessman to handle a profitable business for
our mutual benefit.
Waiting for your confirmation of interest for more details.
Thanks & Regards,
Thanks for your response, it shows your interest to work with me for our mutual benefit, it is real business.
I am 61 year old, Business Consultant Management and Development and I retired from ACCENTURE and active service 5 years ago due to my health. I was a Business Development Consultant to American Diamond and Gemstone Company for over 10 years due to my relationship with the C.E.O who was my college friend in Oxford 35 years ago.
Ref. to my brief mail, find below details of my proposal, read carefully and reply me to enable us to proceed in this beneficial business relationship. I have a business contact of a Jewelry Branding Company, based in New York (USA) American Diamond and Gemstone Company. We have been supplying some raw materials (Raw & Natural Top Quality Bamboo Metallic Ash Color Quartzite Quartz Stones of 98.8% Clarity) for the past 5 years, and this business was made very successful with the assistant of an Egyptian businessman who was then based in Dubai (Mr. Mostafa Abdelal)
The Egyptian businessman has been playing the role of a middleman by purchasing the precious stones from Egypt and supply to the company upon their arrival in Egypt for verification, payment and delivery. This business has been going on smoothly and successful between myself and my partner. And the company contacted me again and are willing to issue an Official Purchase Order to supply;-
i) 20kg of Raw & Natural Top Quality Bamboo Metallic Ash Color Quartzite Quartz Stones 98.8% Clarity,
ii) We purchase from Egyptian local dealer at rate of $20 per grm and supply at rate of $38 per grm, to the American Company cash on delivery.
Upon receipt of this information I tried to contact my Egyptian partner, only for me to find out that my partner died few months ago, before I decided to contact you regarding this business if you can fill the vacuum created by the death of my late partner?
The Raw & Natural Top Quality Bamboo Metallic Ash Color Quartzite Quartz Stone of 98.8% Clarity is a specie that is very rare to find, but my partner (Mr. Mostafa Abdelal) got the exact specification from a local dealer in Egypt. And the company always come to Egypt to verify, pay and take delivery of the materials immediately they confirm availability of materials.
I will nominate you as a Dealer/supplier of the above material in Egypt, while the buying company from USA will contact you to confirm the availability of the materials and issue you the Purchase Order in your name.
Upon arrival of the American Company in Egypt, you will also have detailed discussions with the Company's Purchasing Officer and secure a 3 years renewable Retainer ship Agreement to source and supply all their raw materials requirement. But before then you will meet the real local dealer whom I will give you contact information, while you will be required to purchase only the sample of the materials in the like of 500 GRAM or 1KG depend on the sample the company will demand from you for verification, but in the past they normally request 1KG from my late partner for verification before payment. So your personal capital which you will invest in this business is only for the sample.
As for our profit sharing ratio, since you will be the one to handle this business in Egypt 60% will be for you, while 40% for me and this will be after you have deducted your money for sample and any other expenses from your side, but you must know that it is not our responsibility to take care of the Duty/Tax since the company is coming to Egypt, they will take care for the shipment of the raw materials by themselves.
You should not allow the American Company official to meet the local Dealer in Egypt or have each others contact to protect future transactions and it will also be an additional business opportunity outside your specializations, since the company procure the raw materials three (3) times every year.
This business is lucrative without any risk, we will make 80-90% profit in any successful transaction between us and the company.
If you are interested in this proposal, and assure me of your reliability and capacity, please reconfirm the following information which I will send to the American Company to contact you.
1. Full Names
2. Company Name And Address
3. Tel. Numbers.
7. Occupation/ Prof.
Upon receipt of the above information and confirming your interest and capability, I will give you the contact of the local dealer in Egypt to confirm availability and current local market price of the material.
I await your immediate response or call me for any further clarifications.
