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.

>My dear ally-in-waiting
>I am Maureen Haughey, widow of former Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland, Charles J. Haughey and daughter of former Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland and heir to de Valera, Sean F. Lemass.
>The Press has written a lot about unresolved mysteries and corruption surrounding Charles’ dealings, but I tell you something Mr. Charles was a good man. He was human and he did whatever he did. People marvel why I stuck with Charlie and didn’t speak during the mess
>that came with the exposure of his affairs with Terry Keane (I just hate to think of her). I had to stand by him through the tribunal times…. it was to do with what I’m doing now. No one knew the details of all Charlie’s financial dealings but me. I remain the only one who knows all who got loans from Mr. Charlie and didn’t come back to pay when he was disgraced. I am the only one who knows about the money and the other Ansbacher accounts.
>I write to you, an old weary woman, sick and almost tired of living. My end is nigh but I will not depart until my final mission is accomplished. Also, I write this with an unshaken belief in the power of aspirations and dreams of a human being.
>The Irish government thinks it can shave and reduce me to a poor widow but I have the winning ace.
>A few years ago, when we weren’t sure if my Charlie would be convicted, he kept some money in trust for me in a Security and Finance company. He did not open the account in our names so it will not be traced to us to enable the past remain past. The name on the account is Cedric de Vregille. I never thought Charlie would leave me so soon and it never occurred to me to ask if this name were fictitious or not or a name of any of his friends. I have tried to find this man but to no avail. The amount he deposited in this name here in Ireland is 10,000,000 (Ten Million Euros).
>I want an honest person to come forward and lay claims to this amount, moreover use the funds as instructed by me. I have all the documents needed I just need a face for the name. I have mapped out 10% of the funds for you, as you will help us (you and I) execute this job.
>As soon as I receive your acceptance for this work I shall give you necessary details of my solicitor who will facilitate the release of the funds in your name.
>You can read more of my late husband’s life from:
