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.

The manager Eco,
First Light Branch
Attn William ,
I got your contact during my search for a reliable, honest and a trust worth person to entrust this huge transfer project with, and a friend of yours in uk recomended you to me, My name is Mr. Dike Mensah. I am the manager of the Eco bank Ghana , first light branch. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids , and have contacted so that this transecton can benifit the both of us, but if you are not willing to get involved in the deal do not REPLY THIS MAIL,i as you will never hear from me again.
I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of us$7,500.000.00.
This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved end of the year report for the year 2006 to my head office here in Accra and they will never know of this excess.
I have since then, placed this amount of us$7, 500.000.00 on a suspense account without a beneficiary.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account.
I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.
If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response.
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....
