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.

FROM THE DESK OF MR JAVED AHMED.
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A).
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO
I am the manager of bill and exchange department BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) In
my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15m US dollars ( fifteen
million US dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customer who died along with his entire family in november 2001 in a plane
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless
somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his
supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash
leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this
businness proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or
relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody
is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as
The Banking law guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after five years, the money will be transfered into the Bank
treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this
business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a
Burkinabe can not stand as next of kin to a foreigner.I decided to make it
that 30 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner, in respect
to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for any
expenses both of us made during this deal and 60 % will be for me and
this 10% is for any expencess from your own side you make and from my own
side i make during this deal, and when the fund is transferd we have to
reduct the expencess we made from our pocket during this deal first before
shearing the fund according to the percentages.
Then after I will visit your country for disbursement accoding to the
percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this
fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or
next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective
communication and location where in the money will be remitted . Upon
receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free
and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required
arrangements have been made for the transfer . you should contact me
immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you
immediately. PLEASE MY DEAR FRIEND THIS IS MY PRIVATE LINE YOU CAN CALL
