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.

FROM MR KENNY PAUL
UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC,
BRANCH OFFICE LAGOS,
I am KENNY PAUL, Branch Manager with UNION BANK OF
NIGERIA PLC, BRANCH OFFICE LAGOS Nigeria.I have an
urgent and very profitable business proposition for you
that should be handled with extreme confidentiality.
On January 6,2004 a Foreign Oil Consultant and
contractor in Nigeria LATE CHRISTIAN EICH by name made a
numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months
valued at US$15M(FIFTEEN MILLION, UNITED STATE DOLLARS
ONLY) in my branch.
Upon maturity I sent a routine notification in
accordance with the Bank policy to his forwarding
address but got no reply. After a month we sent a
reminder and finally we discovered from his contract
employers in Nigeria that LATE CHRISTIAN EICH died from
an automobile accident.On further investigation, we
found out that he died without making a Will and all
attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I
therefore made further investigations and discovered
that LATE CHRISTIAN EICH did not declare any next of kin
or relations in all his official documents including his
Bank Deposit paper work in my Bank.
This sum of US$15M has been carefully moved out of my
bank to a Security Company in Europe for safekeeping. No
one will ever come forward to claim it and according to
Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 5 years the money
will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government
if nobody applies to claim the fund. This prompted us to
contact you.We will like to front you as the next of kin
of our late client thereby making you the legal
beneficiary of the sum of $15 million U.S Dollars that
is presently in a Security Company in Europe. I
contacted you because it is against our code of ethics
to own and operate foreign accounts and your assistance
would be needed to claim the money in the Security
Company in Europe.
We have unanimously agreed that 40% of the entire sum
would be for you if you agree to take part in this
profitable transaction,50% for me and 2 of my colleagues
while the remaining 10% would be used to pay back the
expenses that may be incurred during the course of the
transaction by both parties after the fund has been
claimed and lodged in your account. In the event that
you are genuinely interested in the transaction,the
following information would be needed from you to
1) Your Full Name and Address that would be used to
establish you as the next of kin of our late client
thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the fund.
This would ensure that the Security Company in Europe
releases the Consignment/Fund to you.
2) Your Private Mobile,Telphone and Fax numbers where
you can be reached at all time because this transaction
entails constant communication.
The transaction is 100% risk free as all modalities has
been perfected to ensure the hitch free success of the
I await your response urgently.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
