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.

I am presently under house arrest as I was indicted for misappropriations of funds. Now the government has seized all my property and accounts known to them. To make things worse I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts hear in Benin Republic where i am residing now. I don’t want to return the secretly hidden money I have kept from the government because I know it will not be used well that is while i kept it the security company for safety. The amount of money is ($21,000000.00) Twenty-one Million US Dollars only.
This is why I need your help. I want you to contact the security company I deposited the funds with and retrieve it. All document can be made available. I am willing to give you 20% for your assistance, While you send 30% to my wife and son. The balance 50% should go to charities.
I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give also to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth but right now that my health has deteriorated so badly. Please I would really appreciate your help. If you are willing to help Please get back to me so that I can give you the detail of the company and any other needed information.
