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.

AUDIT AND ACCOUNT UNIT
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK BENIN(ADBB)
Compliments and my pleasure writing to you at this moment of the day, I am
Mr Milton Mukuku ,the director incharge of audit and account unit of the
African Development Bank Benin (ADBB) in Cotonou-Benin Republic.I deem it
fit to contact you at this time regarding a discovered dormant account fund
will benefit both of us at the end,if parties involved will take restraints
and maintain absolute secrecy,honesty and intergrity,on and during the
process of this fund transfer until confirmed succesfully delivered into
your nominated bank account.
I got your contact in my zeal and search for a reputable and reliable
person/partner to particularly assist me to claim the fund in question.
During auditing,in my bank at the end of last fiscal year, We discovered a
floating sum OF USD.$28.1M (Twenty Eight Million One Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) in a dormant account belonging to a late customer and
an international businessman, based here in Benin Republic who was involved
in the December 26th Benin plane crash with his entire family. I kept this
information secret and confidential within my executive office in the bank
to enable me arrange a partner to submit claims to my bank foreign
remittance unit and let the fund be transfered through a trustworthy person
whom shall present himsef to my bank as the bonafide next of kin to the
Attached is the BBC link page to the crash;
Our investigations so far clearly reveals that there is no immediate
survivor or even a relation to the deceased and as such,there is no
immediate next of kin for further claims of the deceased fund as we have
long been expecting someone to come forward with an application, over the
past few years. Further informations/verifications from reliable sources too
have confirmed that the deceased customer supposed next of kin were all in
the plane crash with him.
This fund is now ready for transfer into any tendered foreign account, whose
owner will be portrayed to our bank as the bonafide beneficiary and a next
of kin to the deceased customer.The foreign account owner will impost
himself appropriately as the next of kin to the deceased and respond
positively like a true next of kin who wishes to speedup the release and
transfer process of his inherited fund.Kindly be aware too that if the
over-due fund, if not claimed by the end of this quarter, the National
Treasury and Reserve of Benin will take over the ownership of the fund in
line with the National Edict Act of 1979, as UNCLAIMED BILL. We do not want
this to happen as it will not augur to our best interest, having worked all
our lives in the banking sector, that is why I contacted you for us to do
the deal together with absolute confidence, so that you will be portrayed to
our bank as the bonafide beneficiary and an immediate next of kin to the
I will give you further directives,advice and all needed informations
required for this transaction as soon as I receive your positive response.
Similarly,if you accept to carry out this transaction with me,i have
resolved offering to you 30% of the total sum as commission, extra 10% of
all proceeds to be generated from subsequent profit-viable investments
projects and you will be compensated with an executive office in the
We will invest 50% of our shares into your firm if you already have one
provided that is profit orientated.5% of the total fund will be set aside to
reimburse all expenses incurred in the course of this transaction. This
transfer will automatically be affected within 14 bank working days.
Be rest assured that with the underground work that I have laid so far,this
transaction carries no risk and no extra burdens on your part, except for
the above mentioned nominal roles you are required to fulfill, and similarly
you will be required to maintain absolute information secrecy throughout the
duration of this transaction,because discussing and disclosing it with a
third party might jeopardise the entire transaction. I will give you
directives and all needed information as soon as I receive your positive
response.Kindly understand that i could not carry out this fund transfer on
my own alone, based on the simple facts that I am still a civil servant and
presently bank staffs and this office excludes us from operating foreign
accounts,moreover, conducting such magnanimous transaction from the same
place where we belong to will raise eyebrows on our side and the truth is
that this fund belongs to a foreigner,and as such demands same as next of
I am looking forward to receiving your interesting response on this project
as this will greatly enrich the both of us at the end. Please you are
required to reply this message as a matter of neccessity.
