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.

>My name is Mr. Donald Jun Ahn. I trained and work as an external auditor
>for the Development Bank of Singapore (DBS) here in Singapore, working as
>part of a bigger team that covers the entire Asian region. I had taken
>pains to find your contact through personal endeavors.
>On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts
>that had been dormant for the least twelve years. All the accounts belong
>to a single holder with monies totaling a little above $12.8 million United
>States Dollars plus interest. Banking regulation/legislation in Singapore
>demand that I notify the fiscal authorities after a statutory time period
>of twelve years when dormant accounts of this type are called in by the
>monetary regulatory bodies. The above set of facts underscores my reason of
>writing and making the following proposing.
>My investigation of the said account reveals that the death occurred in
>1994â€”the exact time the account was last operated. I can confirm with
>certainty that the said investor died intestate and no nextâ€“ofâ€“kin to
>his estate has been found or has come forward all these years. I am of the
>settled conviction that using my insider leverage, I, working with you can
>secure the funds in the account for us instead of allowing it pass as
>unclaimed funds into the coffers of the Government of Singapore. This is
>especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME to the said investor.
>This exactly is why I crave your participation and co-operation. I have
>seized all relevant documents (legal and Banking) that will facilitate our
>putting you forward as the claimant and beneficiary of the funds and
>ultimately transfer the money to any account nominated by you. Of course
>you shall be handsomely rewarded for your part in this transaction as the
>people I am working with are prepared to allocate a 20% slice of the total
>funds for your efforts, less any expenses. I shall however leave out the
>finer details of this transaction till I receive an affirmation of your
>desire to participate.
>Be assured that my colleagues and I are on top of the situation all the
>time and there will be no risk whatsoever if you agree to come on board.
>Needless to say, UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY is of vital importance if we are to
>successfully reap the immense benefits of this transaction.
>To maintain the level of security required to see this transaction come to
>a successful conclusion, I have intentionally left out the finer details.
>To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal please do so by
>email, stating your Full Names, Date of Birth, Telephone Number, Fax
>Number, Company/position held, Email address and Postal address.
>I do expect you prompt response. REPLY ONLY TO firstname.lastname@example.org
>Mr. Donald Jun Ahn.
