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: HOW ARE YOU DOING?.
My name is Raymond Ferdinard,I am a senior banker in a bank here in the United Kingdom.I am contacting you for a business transfer,of a huge sum of money from a deceased account.
Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that there is not thing to worried about, every documents that will bring about the success of this transaction would be provided, and all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
Mr.Jarold Freeman Hui,Who died in an air crash along with his wife on the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other passengers on board was an American Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation.You can confirm his death from the website below which was published by BBC WORLD NEWS WEBSITE: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm.
Since his death,none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this money as his heir,because they all died in the same accident himself and his wife (May their soul rest in peace).
We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased,as all documentations will be carefully worked to make you the beneficiary to the funds £10,100,000.00GBP(Ten Million,One Hundred Thousand Great British pounds sterling) which will be released in your favor as the next of kin.Because at the end of this years the money will be called back to the bank bond treasury as unclaimed bills and the money shared amongst the directors of the bank.So it is on this note I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin/beneficiary to this funds rather than allow the bank directors to share this money amongst themselves at the end of the year.
It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries.Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the following information if you are interested.
1. Full names and address,
2. Telephone Number.
For our personal contact and mutual trust in each other.I shall be compensating you with 35% of the above amount on final conclusion of this project for your assistance,the balance 65% shall be for me,because I intend to retire after the conclusion of this transaction.If this proposal is acceptable by you,please endeavour to contact me immediately.Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.
I await your urgent response to this email if you are interested to my personal email:firstname.lastname@example.org
