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.

TRUTH OF THE MATTER
I am delighted to contact you on a private note based
on your claim to your contract fund, which has been
programmed for transfer into your designated bank
account through my department.
I am hereby apologizing to you for the delay in
releasing this fund into your account, which was
caused by me because of breach of agreement between me
and your so called partners in Nigeria who introduced
you into the business.
Your Nigerian partners approached me that they want to
present you as a beneficiary of this fund as it was an
OVER-INVOICING made when they are awarding transfer of
funds into various bank account abroad. So after the
negotiation, we unanimously agreed that they (your
partners) would give me the sum of US$200,000.00
(CASH) on my acceptance to assist them to transfer the
fund into your account. When I accepted the offer,
they forwarded all your banking particulars to me for
onward transfer. As soon as I made some fruitful
effort on the business and demanded my US$200,000.00
as agreed. Your partners deviated from the agreement
and decided to go through the International Remittance
Department at my back and make a change of some vital
documents in other to disappoint me and you also not
knowing that the International remittance Department
is also under my control. Then I got the knowledge of
their evil plans and prove their illicit efforts
abortive. That is why you may have to been pursing
this payment, spending unnecessary funds to some
fraudulent individuals in Nigeria who claimed to be in
charge to release your fund. Though they now parade
themselves as staffs and managements of various banks,
some even claim to be a Barrister of different types
and some also go as far as claim staffs of the Central
bank Of Nigeria or as me Prof. Charles Soludo, they
are all decieving their selves and will not be able to
get the fund out of the Central Bank for you.
I want to re-emphasis to you that the fund of which
you are the righful beneficiary as acclaimed, is still
with me and under my control. Now with my whole heart
I want to enter into real business with you on a
sincere agreement since your partners have
disappointed me and the fund is still floating in your
name waiting for a proper documentation and claim.
1. On an agreement, I assure you that I am
going to transfer this fund into your
2. You will assure me of keeping my
dealings with you to an utmost secrecy because
of my position.
3. You will promise to give me 20% of the
total fund as soon as the fund gets into your account
with a written promissory note signed by you.
4. I will assist you in making a proper
document to make your claim genuine as a bonafide
foreign beneficiary to the said fund.
5. You are to Re-forward me your contact
address, phone and fax number, along with an account
where you would like the fund to be transfered, if
possible a virgin account.
I am also aware that some fraudulent individuals has
been impersonating my name and office to contact you
and other beneficiary as reported by the Central Bank
of Nigeria authorities. I advised you that
henceforth, you should suspend any dealings from any
group of person(s) either from the CBN or any other
financial institution / parastatals in Nigeria or
overseas that might be contacting you in this purpose
and endeavour to keep this information confidential
until we finalize this transaction to avoid them using
it as an advantge to scam you again or even make you
lose your money. Also on no account must you contact
these your partners any more, this is for my own
safety and for the security of the fund. Because they
will not stop at any length to getting this fund. And
also on no account must you let them know of my
contact with you. Please reply this message urgently
