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.

Subject: DID YOU GET MY E_MAIL?
I am soliciting for business roposal to make with you. I do seriously need your help because I am disabled from a motor accident and I cannot travel abroad on a Doctor,s orders. I was an Oil consultant based in the United Kingdom, and because I helped a lot of foreign crude Oil Companies to get Crude Oil Lifting Rights and lucrative Oil Contracts from Nigeria,I was able to amass a fortune worth USD28.5million. On 20th eptember 2005, I left the UK finally with my family, and came back to Nigeria.But because of the unfavourable political and economic climate in my country, and for security reasons, I left my money total SD28.5million in a Security Safe Deposit Vault in London. On 2nd February 2006, I and my whole family was involved in a very bad accident on our way home to our Village at Ibadan, about 100 km from Port Harcourt; I lost my entire family in the accident, and I myself fell into a coma since then. I eventually recovered from coma, and was discharged from the hospital forth night later. I have no money with which to sponsor any one in Nigeria to undertake the trip for me; in any case ,my extended family here abandoned me in hospital when they realized that the money which I came back with had been spent on hospital bills. I am currently living on the charity of the church. And now, I need your help
to collect this money in London and invest it in a profitable venture abroad. I cannot bring in this money into Nigeria for fear of seizure by
the Government. If the money is properly and profitably invested abroad, I intend to leave Nigeria permanently. Can I count on your help? If you agree to help me, I will send you by courier the ELECTRONIC CARD KEY of my vault so that you can travel to London and open the vault. For your help and assistance,you will keep 25% of the money for your self 10% will be kept aside for any expences and keep 65% for me in safe custody until I travel to meet you and invest my share. If you agree to help me, please reply giving me the following information :
1. Your Complete name and Street (POSTAL) address
2. Your Phone and fax number, including mobile
3. Your confidential email address.
