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.

From Mrs Serina Water
Cote d'ivoire .
Compliments of the season and how are you today I hope fine. Before I
proceed I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Ms Serina Water,
a staff of the above BANK. I have urgent and confidential business
preposition for you. On September 2nd 1998, an oil contractor with the
ABIDJAN COTE D'IVOIRE National Petroleum Corporation MR AL SAUD, BANDAR made
a numbered time (fixed) deposited for twelve calendar valued at US8.5M
(Eight Millon Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in my branch.
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but
got no reply.
After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contact
employers COTE D'IVOIRE National Petroleum Corporation that MR AL SAUD,
BANDAR, died in plan crash along with his entire family. See below
On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all
attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further
investigation and discovered that MR AL SAUD, BANDAR did not declare any
next of kin in all his official documents,
including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This sum of US$8.500.000.00 is still
sitting in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal
sum at the end of each year.
No one will come forward to claim it.
According to the ABIDJAN COTE D'IVOIRE Law, at the expiration of 8 years the
money will revert to the ownership of the COTE D'IVOIRE Government if nobody
applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like
you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to MR AL SAUD, BANDAR so
that the fruits of this old man labour will not get into the hands of some
corrupt government officials.
As an Accountant and a staff of this BANK, What we have to do is simple if
you follow to my instructions.
You will send to me your complete names, address and information's which I
will secretly programme in the computer account file of late MR AL SAUD,
BANDAR in our bank as his registered associate before his death and who is
entitle to inherit the deposit encase of his death.
When this money is paid into your account, you take 50% share of the total
sum and 50% will be for me. You will also help me to invest my owe share in
you country. I will give you more details upon receipt of your response.
Looking forward to see your urgent response. Please Email through this
From Miss Serina Water
Cote d'ivoire .
