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: WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER TO YOU
I am contacting you in view of a 1,560,000 United States dollars(One million,Five Hundred and Sixty United States Dollars),which is considered as floating in our system,because the Sender,refused to identify himself when he came to send it in our office(that was after it has been duly collected from him,tendered as receipt and sent).
The Sender,one Mr John,said he was a refugee from Bujumburam refugee camp in Ghana,and failed to produce any form of identity card,so he was arrested, and he gave my colleaguues,before he was taken away-your email address and phone number,as the supposed recepient.
Now all you have to do is to get money activated from the western union system here in lome-Togo,and,i will assist you with the transfer-as you want it either through western union money transfer from my bank here(Ecobank,Lome-Togo) or through wire transfer,but first you will need to submit a request of activation,and you being rightful owner with a sworn affidavit from the Court here in Lome.
This requires just your passport copy(2 copies),attestation and surety-which i will provide(he must be a Togolaise).I will check with the High Courts's Registrar on how much to get the sworn affidavit clearance,and let you know.Please feel very free to contact me on this,i am here to help you.Thank you.
