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.

How are you today? I hope fine.?
Mine is a little bit cold over here in Dakar Senegal .
As i told you in my last mail that i'm living in a refugee camp at the moment, in this camp we are allowed to go out only on mondays and fridays of the weeks only.
Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.I don't have any relatives now whom I can go to all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person I have now is Rev.Emmanuel George who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) here in the camp and he is the owner of this cumputer which i use to send and recieve emails from you, he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am living in the female's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women.
The Pastors Tel number is (+221-2158684) if you call tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel,call by 4pm my own time today. As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilledge to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.I want to go back to my studies because I only attended my first year before the traggic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.
Please listen to this,I have my late father's statement of account and death certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank in Europe which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $9.7M(Nine Million seven Hundred Thousand Dollars).
So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.
I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows about it is the Revrend because he is like a father to me.
So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it.
Remember i am giving you all this information dueto the trust i deposed on you.
I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking. My favourite language is english, meanwhile i will like you to call me by 4pm my time today which is 16hrs/gmt i have alot to tell you.
Awaiting to hear from you soonest
