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.

Dearest Friend ,
I am Barrister Lukman Walter, a solicitor and personal attorney to my Late Client who bears the same surename with you and, also a national Of your country,who used to be a contractor and importer here in ACCRA GHANA. Here after shall be referred to as my client. On the 1st of October 2004, my client,his wife and their only daughter were involved in a ghasty motor accident along Nouvissi express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives.
Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my client's extended family relatives, this is to no avail. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$14million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Security Finance Firm where this huge amount were deposited.
The said Security Finance Company where the deceased deceased had an account valued at
about US$14M has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confiscated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been unsuccesful in locating the relatives for over 9months now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$14M can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim.
All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this attract no risk at all for it will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of th! e law. On the receipt of your response i will furnish you with detailed clarification as it relates to this mutual benefit transaction.
Please get in touch with me by my secured and confidential email address immediately you acknowledge the good receipt of this message, do not forget to send me your direct telephone number, so that I can put a call through to you for an extensive discussion on this Transaction.
Anticipating your prompt response.
