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.

Mr. HOWARD ARRAND.
ACCOUNT OFFICER .
FIRST NATIONAL BANK.
My name is Mr. Howard Arrand, the account Manager of the late Mr. Morris
Thompson in South Africa. I write you this proposal in good faith,
believingthat 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
December I was asked to take position of a Manager of our branch in
Johannesburg 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
of $14,500,000 million that has not been operated on for the past 4 years.
From my investigation, I found out that this account belongs to one Late Mr.
Morris Thompson an American great industrialist and a resident of Alaska,who
unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261
which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter.
You shall read more news about the crash on visiting this site which I got
during my investigation;
The account is escrow call account, a secret type of account in my bank and no
other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account
has no other beneficiary. I have kept a close monitoring of the account since
then and nobody has come forward to ask about the money as next of kin to the
late Mr.Morris Thompson, 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
As the Manager of my bank branch, I havethe power to influence the
release of th
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, so that my bank head quarters will release the funds to you. There is
practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.
If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to
funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied. Contact
me as soon
as you receive this message if you feel we can work together, so we
can go over
Thanking you in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with utmost
confidentiality. I wait your urgent
