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.

Subject: We thus propose to do business with you
Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I introduce myself as Mr.Garry Hunt a staff in the accounts management Section of the Bank here in London.
One of our accounts with holding balance of 25,000,000 (Twenty five Million British Pounds) has been dormant and last operated in the past 5 years. From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account is a Foreigner who died long time ago.
Since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money as he has no family Member who is aware of the existence of either the account nor the Funds. Information from the National Immigration also states that he was single on entry the country.
I have confidentially discussed this issue with one of the top official in the bank and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of the deceased and have the funds released to you after due processes have been followed.
We wish to start the first transfer with $10,000.000.00 (Ten Million) and upon successful transaction without any disappointment from your side; we shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining balance to your account.
This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude. At the conclussion of the transfer 60% of the fund will be for me, I will give you 30% of the total transfer sum, 5% for charity both in london and in your country while the remaining 5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties might incur during the transfer process.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other Illegal act.
On your interest, let me hear from you.
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....
