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 Dear Friend,
This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only
a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. My
name is Mr Frank Williams , the present branch Manager of a bank here in
Benin Republic West Africa.
I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you
with the information I am about to reveal to you. Like I said, I have a
transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is required
as a foreigner.
I use to head the Accounts department in my bank head office, but last year
I was asked to take position of a Manager of our branch in Cotonou who passed
on, so that was how I became the present Manager and discovered a fortune.As
I resumed duty, I discovered an account with total sum of $15 million that
has not been operated on for the past years. From my investigation,I found
out that this account belongs to one Late Mr.David Tiago an American big
time Oil dealer, who unfortunately lost his life on november 1999 in a plane
I have kept a close monitoring of the account since then and nobody has
come forward to claim the money as next of kin to the late Mr.David Tiago
meaning that no one is aware of the account. I cannot directly take out
this money without the help of a foreigner and that is why I am contacting
you for an assistance to claim the funds and share it with me.
As the Manager of my bank branch, I have the power to influence the release
of the funds to any foreigner that comes up as the next of kin to the account,with
the correct information concerning the account, which I shall give you.I
am seeking your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to the account.
There is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
If you accept to work with me, you will be entitled to 30% of the total
sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of expenses
that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while
60% will be for me. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating
your which in this deal.
Thanking you in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with utmost
