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.

Subject: Mrs karen walter's Donation to the Needy
From: Mrs. Karen Walter.
26 Kensington Court,
MY PERSONAL DONATION FOR THE NEEDY
I am the above named person but now undergoing medical
treatment in London,England.I am married to Dr. Jim Walter
who worked with British Railway Commission in Chelsea
England for over a decade before he died on 5th of July in
the year 2005. We were married for fifteen years without
a child. He died aftera brief illness that lasted for two
weeks.Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for
the down trodden and the less privileged in the society.
Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child
outside my matrimonial home. When my late husband was
alive he deposited the sum of 10 Million(Ten Million
Pounds sterling) in a Vault with a security/Finance House
in Europe.Presently,this money is still there.
Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the
next 150 days due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs
me most is my cancer.Having known my condition I decided
todonate this fund to an individual or better still a God
fearing person who will utilize this money the way I am
going to instruct here in. I want an individual that will
use this fund to provide succorto poor and indigent
persons,orphanages, and above all those
affected in the Hurricane/Tsunami disaster and other
I understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took
this decision because I do not have any child that will
inherit this money and my husband relatives are not
inclined to helping poor persons and I do not
want my husbands hard earned money to be misused or spent
in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I
do not want a situation where this money will be used in
an ungodly manner, hence the reason for
taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence
I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in
the bosom of the Almighty.I do not need any telephone
communication in this regard because of my
health, and because of the presence of my husbands
relatives around me always.I do not want them to know
about this development. With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the
contact of the Security/Finance House in Europe. I will
also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you
as the original beneficiary of this fund,through my
Lawyer. I want you to always pray for me. My happiness
is that I lived a life worthy of emulation.Whosoever that
wants to serve the Almighty must serve him with all his
heart and mind and soul and also
in truth. Please always be prayerful all through your
life.Any delay in your reply will give me room in
sourcing for an individual for this same purpose.Please
assureme that you will act according to my specification
herein. Hoping to hear from you.
Thank you and may the Almighty bless you.
