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.

Compliments, I Barrister Another Anakwe have decided to bestow this trust on
you, which I pray you will not ignore or betray.
I appologise in advance for any inconviniences this may cause you. I am
Barrister Another the Personal Attorney to late Mr. George M. William, who
was a contractor here in Benin Rep. On the 3rd of Oct 2005,my client with
his entire family were perished in a fierceful Auto-Crash along Midombo
Togo express way.
As a matter of fact, my client made a fixed dopsit Amount, valued at
(USD$10.7M) with a Bank here in Benin Rep, and upon the duration time of
their agreement his bank started contacting him but no response.
Conseqently, the bank issued me a notice to provide
the next of kin to the deceased as his personal attorney,or have his
account confiscated after four years, as it is in the law of this country.
Since then, I have made several contacts to His Countries Embassy in order
to locate any of my clients extended relatives, which had also been
unsuccessful. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for
over two years now, I seek your consent to present
you as the next of kin of the deceased since none of his relatives were no
way to be found so that the proceeds of this account valued at $10.7m could
be transffered into your account, thereafter,we will both share it in
percentage according to our contributions to boost the success of this great
transaction. I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to
back up all the claims we will make. All I require is your honest
cooperation to enable us make this great benefiting transaction
I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me as
fast as possible to enable us discuss further the progress of this business.
With best regards,
Chief Hon: Another Anakwe Esq,
(Senior Advocate Of Benin(SAB)
