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.

From:Lillian atif < lillianamx4@yahoo.com>

I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay. Presently I' am in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total sum.
Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.
Now you will need to contact former personal secretary to the Rev. Father whom used to be a God-mother to me when I was in Dakar, her name is Mrs.Helen Nkuma and her email address is as follows : helen_nkuma@yahoo.com
Ask her to send you a certified bank draft of $300.000.00 which I prepared and kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. so feel free and get in touched with Mrs Helen and instruct her where to send you the money.
Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the our joy after all the sufferings at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to Mrs Helen Nkuma on your behalf to receive that money. Therefore feel free to get in touch with her and she will send the amount to you without delay.
Take care and bye for now.
Yours truly,
Miss Lillian.

i have instruction from Ms Lillian to send to you a certified bank draft bearing US$300,000.00, Bank draft is not deductable or transferable untill it get's to the care of the beneficiary, you can only receive it by allowing me to send it to you through a courrier service firm from here.

Meanwhile our local post office has been granded and neglected by our government due to terrible fraud and corruptions so it's no longer in usedand citizens had no choice than to start using private courrier firms and some like fedex,dhl are very far from the area we are leaving so we usually send by private courriers because it it's sensitive and not all courrier services are authorised to lift bank drafts since after sept11th incidence in the USA,

I will go and confirm from a reliable courier agency and the insurance on how they can deliver this bank draft (Cashier's cheque) to your place as you asked me but you will need to urgently re-confirm to me your real full names, current direct telephone numbers and current contact address which you would like to receive the draft from the courrier firm to avoid unwarranted mistakes because the was issued in draft-form for your safety.

Reply soonest

Hello I appreciate your response, i'm pregnant and have'nt been feeling fine
for some days now. You should remember that a bank draft cannot be transfered because it was not issued on my name, it was issued to your name as the beneficiary of the draft and the person who issued this draft is gone to Paraguaye, so i won't be able transfer it through bank from here but can easily send this draft to you by courrier service means. That's
the simple truth ok.

I honestly want to beleive that you won't doubt my report because i wouldn't like a situation where-by you will feel that someone is trying a fraud because your expartner did not leave any cash money behind for me to handle the delivery, I'm sure both of you must have discussed about it earlier.

Actually i don't have money at hand to help you on the courrier charge, my monthly salary is poor, i am just an ordinary secretary otherwise i would have assisted you to post this draft with my own money so that you will refund me later but i don't have it at the moment. Honestly your money is in a certified bank draft bearing US$300, 000.00 which cannot be deducted or added untill you present it to your bank with your proved identity. If you are still indoubt, you can re-confirm from your local bank, Please do not take me for deceit.

There are relaible courrier service firm nearest to my office here, presently the only way i can assist you is by sending this bank draft to you through courier firm as i mentioned earlier so that you can receive it within 4days and then take it to your bank for melting into your account. The TNT courrier which i consulted over here agreed to deliver the draft to you within 4days but insisted that we must fulfill their service charge of US$300 equivalent for delivery including insurance fee of the valued parcel, our local post office in Dakar
 has been grounded for long and neglected by our government due to corruptions, so it's no longer in use and citizens had no choice than to start using the express courriers for safety, like
tnt which is the most efficient in our country.

Please use this name stated bellow to send me the western union tomorrow, i am very busy with the office activity this period, send it with my name which i listed below to you send the money to me, so that i can collect the money from western union, the fee for both courrier and insurance is US$700 equivalent to our local currency.

Address; 45 grand yoff, Dakar Senegal.

Phone; + 221 772781717

Then forward me this 3 information so that i can cash
the money over here.

1) The control numbers
2) The test question and answer
3) The name and address of the sender.

I shall get back to you as soon as i receive this information from you and i will scan the copy of the draft and courrier airway bill to send to you through the courrier scaner because i can't get a good scaner in my area except when i get to the city which is very far from my area, i want you to see their veiws before the draft arrives.
