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 miss Mary Obiajulme, i am a young girl of 20 years old, i am from
freetown sierra leone in west africa, i am currently living in abidjan
coted'ivoire also in west africa, i am the only daughter of my parents, my
parents were killed during the war in my country sierra leone, now i am
orphan and like a refugee here in abidjan coted'ivoire. my late father was a
well known business man in my country, also a former director of sierra
leonan tin & copper company . before my father was killed he told me being
the only child he has, that he kept a trunk box that contains the sum of
$2.000.000 (two million united states dollars) in a security company here in
abidjan, to be an inheritance for me , incase if he weren't around or any
emergency. according to my father he said that the secrity company does not
know that the box is containing the fund, that he registered the box as
containing our family valuables. he gaved me the documents for the claim of
Dear, I have succeded in locating the security company here in abidjan where
the box was deposited and i have given them every proof of my claim, which
the director have already confirmed for me. now the director of the company
said that they can't give me the box because my late father had an agreement
with them that the box will be ship to my foriegn partner's destination
abroad, of which i can remember that before my father died he told me that
whenever i went for the claim of the box that i should first of all look for
a friend abroad who will help me to invest the sum overseas as i am too
young to handle that kind of sum myself.
Dear, it was on this note that i decided to contact you to help me contact
the security company and discuss with them on how this box could be
successfully delivered to your home /office address after when the box is
delivered to you, i will give you a code that you will use to open the box
and send me some money down here so i can use it to secure my traveling
papers for coming to start a new life over there in your country to stop
suffering here in a refugee camp. also will like to invest my inheritance
sum in your country.
Please if you are willing to help me write me back here so i can give you
more informations on how we can do this.
I am willing to offer you the 10% of the total sum for your help to me.
