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.

Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does
not meet your business or personal ethics. I will
first introduce myself as Dr.Anthony Hobson, a staff
in the Private Clients Section of a well-known bank,
here in London,England.
One of our accounts, with holding balance of
£15,000,000 (Fifteen Million Pounds Sterling) has been
dormant and last operated three years ago. From my
investigations and confirmation, the owner of the said
account, a foreigner by name John Shumejda died on the
4th of January 2002 in a plane crash in Birmingham;
you can view this CNN website
for details on the crash.
Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the
claiming of this money, as he has no family member
that has any knowledge as to the existence of either
the account or the funds; and also Information from
the National Immigration also states that he was
single on entry into the UK.I have confidently
discussed this issue with some of the bank
officials and we have agreed to find a reliable
foreign partner to deal with. We therefore propose to
do business with you, standing in as the next of kin
of these funds from the deceased and funds released to
you after necessary processes have been followed.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles
as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from
drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal
On your interest, let me hear from you.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
