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.

FROM THE DESK OF KONVOLBO ABDOUL
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGEMENT
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT.
THE AFRICAN BANK (T A B)

of The African Bank.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S$3.7 m dollars
(three.seven million USD) in an account that belongs to one of our
foreign customer who died along with his entire family in July 2003 in
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it
some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidlines and laws, but unfortunately we
that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him
plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery, I now decided to make this
proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or
to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is
coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury
unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidine here stipulates that if
money remained unclaimed after seven years, the money will be
into the bank as unclaimed bill .
I therefore agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreigner
partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will
set aside for expenses incured during the business and 50% would be for
There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as
arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin
the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number,
private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication
location where in the money will be remitted.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is
and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required
arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me
immediately as soon as you recieve this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
