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.

NOTE;YOUR RESPONSE SHOULD BE MADE ON THIS EMAIL ADDRESS,
( email@example.com )
The inspiration to contact you is simply divine providence, I am making this
proposition because I have to seek the partnership of a resource person to
help me realize this project. I am DR JURGEN GERSTNER Head of Private
WealthManagement Deutsche Bank AG London Winchester House 1 Great Winchester
London EC2N 2DB LONDON UNITED KINGDOM.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. In january
2002 I was attending a business investment conference In Switzerland and I
got introduced to a reknowned business man Mr Bassam Qubba a top Iraqi
Foreign Ministry Director He engaged my services as an investment banker
Deutsche Bank AG London and my primary assignment was to spearhead his
investment forays in the United Kingdom due to the war in his country.
Three months later I invited him to London and under my professional guidance
and based on my advice he made a numbered time (fixed) deposit for 24
calendar months valued at GBP £20,320,000.00(Twenty million three hundred and
twenty thousand Great British Pounds Sterling in my branch due to the problem
in his country. Upon maturity in 2004, I sent a routinenotification to his
forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, I sent a reminder and
finally we discovered from the embassyhere in london that Mr Bassam Qubba on
the 12th June 2004 aged 60, was assassinated on his way to work in Baghdad's
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and
all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further
investigation into the account and discovered that Mr Bassam Qubbaa did not
declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,including his Bank
Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum GBP 20,320,000.00(Twenty million three
hundred and twenty thousand Great British Pounds Sterling has been floating
as unclaimed since 2002 in my bank as all efforts to get his relatives have
hit the stones .
Meanwhile he was doing this cladenstingly by virture of his position as a
public servant.According to the British law at the expiration of 4 (four)
years,themoney will to the ownership of the British Government if nobody
applies to claim the fund and the four years will elapse by the end of 2006.
Consequently,my proposal is that i want to seek your consent as a foreigner
to present you to stand in as the next of kin to late Bassam Qubba so that
the bank will transfer the money to your designated account. All documents
and proves to enable you get this fund will be carefully worked out. I have
secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased
beneficiaries, and more so I am assuring you that the business is risk free
involvement. Your share stays while the rest be for me and for investment
purpose as I will leave London by the end of the year.
The sharing of the funds will be based according to agreement within you and
I. As soon as i receive an acknowledgement ofreceipt of this message in
acceptance of our mutual business proposal, I will furnish you with the
necessary steps to follow and disbursement ratio to suit both parties without
any conflict. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue
advantage of the trust i have bestowed in you. I think its also necessary you
