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.

>From Jafeenda Mobotu.
>Hello my dear,
> I am aware that this is not a formal approach in starting a
>relationship, but as time goes on, you will realise the need for my
>approach. My email to you will come as as a surprise since i don't know you
>in person. But if this message comes to you out of your wish, i am very
>sorry. I hope that you will read through this email and understand how
>difficult things can be for someone in a particular period in life.
> My name is Miss. Jafeenda Mobotu, i am 18years now, i was a student in
>the University of Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), west Africa. I am
>the only daughter of late Chief Justin C. Mobotu and my Brother frank.
>Some rebel from one part of the government struck our township and killed
>my parents and my only brother because my father was one of the oppositions
>to the former president of my country Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). And
>before his death he has $7 million U.S.D (Seven million dollars.) in an
>account with a bank in Cote D'Ivoire which i am the next of kin.
> My late dad had planed to purchase and import some cocoa processing
>machines and the development of another factory, unfortunately he did not
>meet his target before his untimely death. The reason why i contacted you
>for help is due to the agreement my late father had with the bank during
>the deposit. I have been denied access to withdraw the money from the
>bank, the bank manager told me precisely that the money was deposited in a
>suspense fixed account with a clause attached to it for onward transfer
>into a foreign bank account.
> I have tryed all i could, but the bank manager advised me to look for a
>foreign account where the money can be transfered into before i can have
>access to it. Since security here can not be guaranteed, besides i've lost
>my family and my father's company was burnt down in that rebel attack.
> Right now i am in great sufferings and difficulty, i can't feed myself
>because i have spent all the money i have.
>Please i am begging you to do me a favor by standing as my guardian and
>receiver of the money on my behalf, or you can stand as my late father's
>foreign business partner to enable the bank to transfer my late dad's money
>into your account.
> I have suffered in so much pain since i lost my family, so i have
>decided to go out of this country and invest in your country if you will
>accept to receive the transfer. I will be investing in industrial
>production as soon as the bank has made the transfer to you, and you make
>an arrangement for me to come over to your country after this money is
>transfered to you.
> Please my dear, if you will help me realise this transfer and get me out
>of this pain, you will have 40% of the total money as compensation for your
>effort, and another 10% for any other expense you might made after a
>successful transfer by the bank into your account, and that will total your
>own share of the transfer 50%.
> Please i am begging you to help me by indicating your interest in your
>reply to this mail if willing. I will be expecting your urgent reply though
>my private email: email@example.com thanks and may God bless you.
>Miss Jafeenda Mobotu.
