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.

GUIDLING HERE STIPULATES THAT IF SUCH FUND REMAINED UNCLAIMED AFTER TEN
YEARS IT WILL BE TRANSFERED INTO THE BANK TREASURY AS UNCLAIMED FUND.THE

FACT THAT THE CUSTOMER WAS A FOREIGNER AND A BURKINABE CANNOT STAND AS NEXT
