Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. But he does not give up if he thinks it is still possible to convince the victim. He could try a new scam with hidden millions or a big lottery winning. Another approach is a compensation letter where he promises the victim a big sum as compensation. The compensation money does not exist, - it is simply the start of a new scam. The letter below is an example of such a letter.

My dear friend
How are you together with your family i hope that all is well
if so glory be to God amen,
It's been long I heard from you. Well, I just want to use this medium to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the funds,
without any positive outcome. I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from Paraguay. Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one
of the Lady accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and she rendered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this
idea and everything worked out successfully.In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the Funds.

I have decided to compensate you with the sum of $850,000 in a Cashier's cheque (Eight Hundred and fifty Thousand United States Dollars). This is from my own share. I did this simply to show you that it is good to do good things to the right people always.

Presently, I am in Paraguay for investment project with my own share under the advice of my partner.Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us somehow. I will be sending you e-mail from time to time to know if you have received your share or not. Now contact my personal assistant in Benin Mr Anekwe Charls
his e-mail address is(anekwe_charls2121@yahoo.fr  ).

Please do let me know immediately if you have receive it so that we can share the joy together after all the suffering at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here in
Paraguay because of the investment projects, which the new partner and I are having at hand. So feel free to get in touch with Anekwe Charls to send the cheque to you without any delay.
With My Best Regards
Barr John Obaha Esq,
