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.

Subject: !PLEASE ASSIST,DO TREAT AS URGENT!
With all sincerity and humility it is with deep pains i write you this
message of wishful assistance to my predicament. I am Mrs Jewel Taylor
the estranged wife to the former president of Liberia who was asked by
unanimous decision by the international community to step down from
the corridors of power.
I write you this mail under duress and as a result of my recent
decision to better the lives of i and my children. I have made a
decision which i know might not be good in the sight of man but the
present situation has led me to this decision to better the lives of my
children. Currently now i have decided to make do with the sum of
$20m (Twenty Million United States Dollars)belonging to my husband
in which i am a beneficiary to, i have decided to relocate with your
assistance to your private account the said sum.
My decision was reached when i could not conceive the thought that
after the United States Government has promised to let my husband go
free based on the condition that he should step down Mr. Collin Powell
stated in a press briefing that he would be indicted by the court in
Netherlands to face charges on war crimes which he is now facing in the
Hague, this is what led to my decision as God Knows that i was never in
support of his involvement in the indecent maltreating of innocent people
This decision is hard for me to make but i just have to make it for the
sake of my children's future.
Currently the said sum was lodged in a Security and Private Bank which
i will disclose to you as a matter of commitment to me and this plea for
assistance. I currently have the deposit certificate and can draw up a
change of beneficiary mandate to effect you as the beneficiary to the funds.
I am a trained Economist by profession and it is in this line that
i will want you to take note that your services for assisting me will be
compensated to the best of my ability.
I have this to look forward to so i would like you to keep this
project close to your heart just as myself pending when we reach the
conclusive end of this project. I will want you as a matter of
confidentiality to respond through this mail and also include your
telephone number as well so that i can have my Son give you a call if the
need arises as we are currently on political asylum now in west africa.
Once i get your confirmation that you can be of assistance i will bring you
into a clearer picture of the situation at hand.
Please contact me whether or not you are interested in assisting
us,this will enable us make alternative plans, in the event of
non-interest on your part.
I look forward to your response with great hope of assistance from your
I remain Yours Truly,
Mrs Jewel Howard Taylor
