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.

My name is Huang Zhiling, and I work at China Construction Bank, Hong Kong. We have just concluded an investigation which was not productive in respect of a global search of any kind of relative to a deceased client of ours named Mr. Nate Prado who has an investment placed under my management 14 years ago.
The main reason of contacting you now is because our investigation results, you not only share the same last name as the deceased, but your profile best fits what I intend to do. I hope that you will be interested in my proposal as regards to the prospective opportunities and return it could provide for both of us, please take your time to read. Please find below a summarized biography of the deceased's personality and also the purpose of contact with you and do note that this business deal is strictly confidential meanwhile to clarify your email, once you confirm your readiness before I can bring you in and introduce you as the next of kin to late Nate Prado.
About Late Nate, he was a miner / mining consultant most of his life, who spent most part of his life working in South Africa, Indonesia, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. He migrated into Hong Kong a long time ago as an orphan at the age of 6; this made it difficult to have any link with his immediate extended family, as he was raised by a Priest (Rev. George Good of blessed memory) His ailment began when he lost his family (wife and their only. daughter) in a mysterious circumstance during a vacation visit to Northern Africa, he became devastated as a result of the shock from the news of the death of his family, subsequently fell sick (mentally), as he was been treated, his condition deteriorated, he suffered severe brain damage which eventually caused him to slip into coma, he later lost the fight and passed away. Prior to the unfortunate situation he confided in me that he had never known his father or his family and it had made it difficult for him to connect anyone from his lineage.
Late Nate entered a financial investment of about $ 55,000,000.00 (Fifty five million United States dollars) which he wished to have us turn over (invest) for ten years. We worked on strategies in line with the volume of fund at our disposal strategically investing in equity and equity related securities including venture capital. We spun the money around various diversified medium term programs and then attracting a margin in profit of 7.5% annually mostly in shares. This investment is now worth US $ 96,250,000.00 (Ninety six million, two hundred and fifty thousand United States dollars). In 2012, after the arrears were due, we noticed the inactivity on his portfolio, hence my office initiated an investigation which lasted for 18 months and had not found any next of kin as Nate was intestate in his belief. in line with his philosophy in enouncing valuables He also did not leave any known immediate family member behind because of his background and upbringing as an orphan;. Hence this is my primary reason for contacting you He lived a very prosperous and generous life, May his soul rest in peace. After his painful death, we tried severally to trace / locate anyone who could be slightly related to him, this task has been very challenging due to the circumstance of his migration into the Hong Kong, we tried to establish a connection from his only known roots (the orphanage) where he was raised, but almost everyone that knew him then have passed on. All efforts were unsuccessful. Recently I received news that has rekindled the need to locate his next of kin urgently, Hence my contact with you.
