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.

OUR REF: FGN/CBN/TPID/DATA/XXVOL1.2007
First and foremost I apologized using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium.
In the spirit of reconciliation, we have set up a whole new reform which is devoid of infringement, a reform that is aimed at achieving sanity in the financial sector to boost our creditor's confidence. With the success so far recorded in barely six months into our existence, it has become obvious that the reform being embarked upon, represent a well thought strategy for moving the economy forward, and reconciling our creditors to the government.
I am the new Information and Database analyst of the Treasury/Payment Investigation Department of the CBN.The earlier you pay candid attention to this particular email,the better for you.I noticed this just last week when I was going through several out-going payment files on my payment desk.
I have decided to contact you through this important medium because CBN as the Apex bank and under my desk has intercepted your fund as a result of fraudulent activities noticed among those that claimed to be helping you.
I'm contacting you on trust and with complete confidence that you should as a matter of utmost importance pay urgent attention to this particular e-mail and stop any further contact with anybody,person or group including your so-called representing attorney because apart from me,no other person can help you get the fund transfered to your account in your country.
All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for a smooth actualization of the transaction/project and transfer of the funds into your account in your country without any problem within the next few working days of commencement provided you stick to my own advice and instructions.
I want you to contact me upon reciept of this mail on my email ( email@example.com ). I will personally get any complications here corrected at my own expense as soon as possible and ensure a successful transfer of all the funds into your account without any problem.
1.After using my good office/position to accomplish the needful on your behalf,you shall give me 20% only of the total fund after transfer of all the funds into your account in your country.
2.Due to my position in the bank,I will prefer that you keep my involvement 100% secret and confidential even after the transfer is executed.
A stitch in time they say saves nine.
This is the only reliable channel for you otherwise all other efforts MUST be in vain.
