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.

During the heat of the civil war in my country -GUINEA BISSAU,almostall government offices, operations and parastatals were attacked and vandalized. The Guinea  Bissau Rubber was in like manner
loathed and burnt down to ashes, where and when
Rubber worth millions of dollars were stolen by the invading rebel/military forces who attacked many public offices/departments.

Many top government officials and senior army officers were selected and assassinated including my father who was a key target because of his very sensitive military position and appointment in my country.

Regreatably, my father late Mr Patrick Edward,
was then captured and murdered along with his half brother in cold-blood during a mid-night rebel shoot-out when our official residence in Guinea was ambushed by the notorious rebel leader,
I am contacting you to seek your kind assistance to transfer and invest US$4. million belonging to my late father which he deposited in a security company Here in Abidjan. This money is revenues from solid minerals and Rubber sales which were made during my father's tenure immediately before the out-break of hostilities in my country.

Before my mother died, she secretly told me that my father deposited some money which he made from Rubber sales and contracts in one of the security company here in Ivory Coast and that I should look for a trustworthy foreign- business-partner who would help me to transfer and invest this money in profitable business venture overseas.

She told me to do this quickly so that I can leave  Africa then settle down abroad. She gave me the security company documents to prove the deposit and then told me that my father used my name as the only son to deposit the money in the security company.
If you are willing to assist me, please let me know immediately so that you will arrange the transfer of the money to your account with the security company . Please note that I have decided to offer you 10% of the total money as compensation for your noble assistance in accordance with my mothers advise.
I am interested in any profitable commercial venture which you consider very good in your country and you would also get a school for me, I can finish my education.
Please there is urgent need for the money to be transferred to you because of the political crises they are having in Cote d'Ivoire now.

I am hoping to hear your urgent response so that I will not look for another foreign partner.
Thank you and may God bless you and your dear family.
Yours sincerely
Anthony J. Edward
