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.

Subject: MATTER OF URGENCY
I am John England ,an Army contractor attached to the US Military force in Iraq. The reason why I'm explaining my findings to you is to seek for your assistance to enable you contribute immensely to the actualization of my dream.
On the 16th day of April 2007, me and my group of 4 men we were alerted on the need of some reconstruction works in Haifa Street, a long thoroughfare of high-rise buildings built and occupied by Saddam Hussein when he was alive here in Baghdad.
Immediately we proceeded to the site and as we commence work to our utmost surprise we discovered an underground bunker in one of the buildings. Upon investigation of the bunker to our surprise we discovered two boxes safely hidden and sealed, I told my men to open the boxes in order to find out the contents and when they were opened to our amazement the boxes contained some US Dollars which amounted to $23.2M after I and two of the men counted them.
I however instructed them to keep this in high secrecy so that we can have the money to our selves, they all agreed to the plan and we were going to get the money out of the country but first we had to hide the money in a safe and untraceable location.
I am now in desperate need of a "Reliable and Trustworthy" person like you who would receive, secure and protect these boxes containing the US Dollars for me up on till my assignment elapses here.We cannot leave the boxes here in Iraq for any reason since Iraq is getting unsafe and dangerous everyday. I assure and promise to give you 10% of this fund, however feel free to negotiate what you wish to have as your percentage in this deal.
Please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret within you so that my job would not be jeopardized.
My Sincere regards,
