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 contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of money
from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude
will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all
will be well at the end of the day. We decided to contact you due to the
urgency of this transaction.
We discovered an abandoned sum of $30M(Thirty Million United states Dollars)
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along
with his entire family. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or
relations has come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir. We
cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as
the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon
this discovery, we now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of
kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully worked out by us
for the funds $30M(Thirty Million United states Dollars) to be released in
your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin.It may interest you to note
that we have secured from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of
deceased beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in
acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the
1. Your Full Names and Address.
2. Direct Telephone and Fax numbers.
These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the appropriate
departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer can
be made. We shall be compensating you
with 30% on final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for
us. Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for us for investment
purposes in your country.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the
trust we have bestowed in you, I await your urgent email.
