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.

Subject: Re: Please i need your help.
Like I stated in my first letter my name is Dennis Amah the son of James Amah from Sierra Leone in West Africa.
I contacted you to know if you can be of help and assist me and my sister over our inheritance deposited for us by my late father who died as a result of poison from his business associates in Abidjan Cote d' Ivoire West Africa .
Before the death of my father he deposited the sum of 7.5m $ with a security company . During the deposit he agreed with the security company that his foreign partner will come for the collection of the money which he deposited and declared with them as family valuables in a trunk box. Due to the agreement he made with the Security company I and my sister cannot make this claim without presenting a foreigner who will stand and act on our behalf as the foreign partner to my late father. Please i attach me and my sister photo for you to know us better.
This is why he told me before his death to look for a reliable and trust worthy foreigner who will assist me in this regard if anything wrong happens to him.
Now that he have been poisoned to death I and my sister are calling for your assistance to help us get this money into your account so that we can have access to the money in your country.
Most importantly, during the deposit he did not expose the real content of the box as he deposited and declare it as family valuables. So you will not let any body know the real content of the box as only both of us and my sister knows the real content of the box.
Secondly, you will also help us to invest the money in your country while me and sister will come over to meet you for business investments which you will advise. In all to be our guardian as we don't have any body now to look after our welfare.
Once you get the money into your country you will send some money for us to prepare our travelling documents to meet you in your country,
To enable you act on our behalf send to me your current telephone and fax numbers, Full name and address, which I will submit to the security company informing them that you are my father's foreign partner and co- beneficiary to this box through my sister.
Once I receive your next mail i will give you the contact of the security company for you to make contact with them on our behalf. I will also release the certificate of deposit for you so that you will contact them without any mistake.
Please we need urgent attention to this problem as all our hope depends in this money to survive in life.
For your kind assistance i and my sister have resolved to give 15% of the total sum for your kind gesture to assist us in this transaction.
Please our future is in your hands.
Help us and God will bless you in all.
Waiting for your quick response
Dennis And Patricia
