Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. But he does not give up if he thinks it is still possible to convince the victim. He could try a new scam with hidden millions or a big lottery winning. Another approach is a compensation letter where he promises the victim a big sum as compensation. The compensation money does not exist, - it is simply the start of a new scam. The letter below is an example of such a letter.

Hello dear is me Gift William,

How are you today? I hope you are in good health and doing well in your chosen field of life endeavors. Do forgive me for keeping so long from writing you, the fault is not actually from me, it is as a result of the delay in concluding the transfer and investing my funds which you once tried to assist me to transfer and invest in your country.

I received huge assistance from a Spanish businessman based in London who helped me to negotiate and settle every aspect of financial involvement in the transaction and also in investing the fund. I now live in the United Kingdom. I did not forget the efforts you made to help me, i know that you tried your very best to assist me although things did not work for both of us. Because of the efforts you made toward assisting me and the great love and concern you showed me during the period we were communicating with each other, i was moved to issue a cheque of ($300.000,00) United States Dollars in your name.

I did this because, God has blessed me with uncountable things hence my decision is to compensate you. You have to contact Reverend Samuel Martin in Dakar, Senegal, and ask him to send the cheque to you. You have to contact him through his email address at (revsamuel.martin@hotmail.com) or You can call him +221765087650 When contacting him, you should introduce yourself very clearly to him.

I have already given him your details and explained to him how you tried to help me during the most turbulent and deplorable period in my life. When contacting him, you should mention the exact amount of money in the cheque so that he will not have any reason to doubt whether you are the actual person i told him to send the cheque to you. Do not forget to tell him that you are my friend and foreign business partner before, You have to inform me immediately you receive the cheque from Reverend Samuel Martin.

With all my Love,
Miss Gift William
Miss Young
