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.

Subject: Dear Friend, your utmost attention is needed
DIRECTOR,AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT,
FORIEGN REMITTANCE DEPT.
INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA(IBA).
LOME - TOGO.
With due respect and regard, I am Abel Yengeni the director in charge of auditing and account section of International Bank of Africa here in Lome Togo.
I have decided to contact you on a confidential business transaction for mutual benefit. During our investigation and auditing in this bank,my department came across a huge sum of money belonging to a deceased customer Dr. GEORGE W. BRUMLEY who died along with his entire family on July 2003 in a plane crash that happened in Kenya, East Africa. This said fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim.
I keep this information secret within myself and partner to enable us carry out a good transfer plan. The said amount is us$15M (Fifteen Million United States Dollars).
Meanwhile all the arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this fund to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us.
In fact I would have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eyebrow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party who must be a foreigner as i can not stand as next of kin to a deceased foreigner.The foreigner will forward claim as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where this fund will be re-transferred into upon instruction.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free.On smooth conclusion of this transaction,you will be entitled to 25% of the total sum as gratification, while 5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while 70% will be for me and my partner.
Please, you have been adviced to keep top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the fund in your account and ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated.
Also I would like you to visit the website below for more information about the Plane Crash and the Deceased Dr. GEORGE W. BRUMLEY AND HIS FAMILY:
SO PLEASE,I URGE YOU TO CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY FOR A POSSIBLE AND RISKFREE INVESTIMENT OPTION ABROAD OF WHICH YOU WILL BE DULLY AND GREATLY COMPENSATED IN THE END
All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you.
Please get in touch with me .
