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.

NOTIFICATION OF BEQUEST:
On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Mr. Edwin
Gabriel, I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter was returned
undelivered. I hereby attempt to reach you again by this same email address
on the WILL. I wish to notify you that late Mr. Edwin Gabriel made you a
beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Five Million One Hundred
Thousand Dollars (USD$5,100.000.00 ) to you in the codicil and last
testament to his will.
This may sound strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and true.
Being a widely travelled man, he must have been in contact with you in the
past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends
abroad who wished you good. Mr. Edwin Gabriel until his death was a member
of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical
Engineers. He was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give out. His
great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time. Late Mr.
Edwin Gabriel died on the 16th day of February 2005 at the age of 90 years
and his WILL is now ready for execution. According to him this money is to
support his Christian activities (may his soul rest with the Lord) and to
help the poor and needy.
Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as
possible to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant
date.please contact me on this email: email@example.com
Yours in His service,
James Dugo Esq.
