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.

We confirm that we are in receipt of your mail with interest in our investment project. We further confirm that we are writing from Somalia which knows no peace at the moment owing to the on-going war.
We are interested to send investment funds to your country where we expect efficiency in management and accountability. Our desire is to have these funds into investment under partnership with an indigineous company who will provide management; if your company could provide this, we are most willing to start negotiations.
Our interest is in profit yeilding investment on long term basis, the investment in question must be relatively safe and must attract less attention from the political class. We are looking at the following sectors: AGRICULTURE, TEXTILE,CONSTRUCTION, WOOD OR IN THE ENERGY SECTOR.
Be informed that we have funds enough to make a significant investment and we request you to prepar to us, an investment plan that will cover our initial investment. We have over $20mUSD, subsequent investment will be made as we progress.
Here in Somalia, the commercial atmosphere is not stable and it is difficult to tell you what works or not considering the circumstances which is highly unpredictable.
We are willing to visit your country for a meeting, so that details will be treated and investment contract could be signed between parties. We shall be discussing composition of investment, your participation, share and other important details.
Be kind to advise us on how soon you can make investment plan available.
We are looking forward to a profitable mutual business relationship.
With best regards,
