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.

Dear most Honoured friend
My name is Mr. Saeid Joulaei ,a sick merchant
diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which
was discovered very late, in AL Bayan Specialist Hospital,
due to my laxity in caring for my health. It
has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a
few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly
lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my
Though I am very rich, I was never generous.
But now I regret my past as I now know that there is more to life
than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe
when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my
life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has
called me, I have willed and given most of my properties
and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a
few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul
and so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations so as to
bring succour and comfort to the less priviledged in our societies, as
I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.
So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the
U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so
badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my
family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I
have there to charity organizations and to the less priviledged in
Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves.
Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what
I have left for them.
The last of my money which no one knows of, is the huge cash deposit of
Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds(lb9,500 000.00) that I have
with a Bank in Europe for safe keeping. It is with regards to this funds
that i am writing you this email. All i need is to make you the beneficiary to
these funds, and i will establish a relationship between you and the bank via my
attorney so that you can disburse it to some Charity Homes, and to the less
Please send me an mail to indicate if you will assist me in this
disbursement.I have set aside 30% for you for your time and patience.
While the other 70% will be disbursed to the less priviledged and
unfortunate victims of unforseen circumstances. If you know you can not help me,
please do not bother to reply to this email, and i strongly apologise if my
with you has caused any inconviniency, but if you are willing
you can e-mail me at: email@example.com while I await to hear
from you, may God be with you and your entire family.
Mr Saeid Joulaei
