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: Child of God
Child of God,I got your address from a missionary who came to visit us at the Bujumbura refugee camp Ghana. she told me that you are a child of God that is why I am trusting you with my story.
I am very sorry to trouble you with my problem.My name is Grace Williams,I am 22 years old girl from Darfur.I am an orphan in a refugee camp in Ghana.
My parents was killed in the war in Darfur,I was able to
escape to Ghana with my younger sister.
My Dad was a notable politician in my country before he was killed during
the war, I discovered that my dad had some money which he securely hid in two
trunk boxes.He deposited it in a security company here in Ghana since 2002.
The money is about (US$18.500.000) eighteen million five hundred thousand
After we came to Ghana, we were granted political asylum,then I went to the security company and demanded for the release of the boxes which my dad deposited with them. they told me to provide a delivering address in your country
where the boxes will be ship to because according to them,the agreement my Dad had with them stated that the boxes will be transfered to your country anytime it will be released,I don't have anyone there that is why i need you to assist me in the transfer of the boxes to your destination
My plans is to relocate from Ghana with my sister to your country where we
will be more safe and get a better schooling, but I will need to move out the money left by my Dad.
Once I move the money out to your place,you will help me to invest the money
into real estate and properties.
I have all the necessary documents to help us move the boxes to your
destination legally without any trouble. I am willing to compensate you with
30% of the money for helping us if you are ready to assist us.
Please the earlier you help me the better because our life is no more safe
here.Please write back and let me know if you can help me or not.
Waiting for your favorable reply.
