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.

>>As you read this; I don't want you to feel sorry for me because, I believe
>>everyone will die someday. My name is David Anthony I am a merchant of
>>Omani nationality but presently residing in London. I have been diagnosed
>>with Oesophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment,
>>and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical
>>experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really
>>cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich,
>>I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on
>>my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all
>>this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or
>>make all the money in the world.
>>Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property
>>and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few
>>close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul as such,
>>I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be
>>one of the last good deeds I will do on earth. So far, I have distributed
>>money to some charity organizations in the Oman, Algeria and Malaysia. Now
>>that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.
>>I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and
>>distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in
>>Bulgaria and Pakistan; they refused and kept the money to themselves.
>>Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with
>>what I have left for them.
>>The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of
>>eighteen million dollars 18,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security
>>Company in Europe. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
>>despatched it to charity organizations.
>>Get back to me through my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org
>>I have set aside 20% for you and for your time.
>>God be with you.
