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.

Subject: I want you to stand as the new beneficiary
From: Madam Susan Cross Cole
Here writes Madam Susan Cross Cole, suffering
from cancerous ailment.
When my late husband was alive he deposited
the sum of 5Million (Five Million Pounds Sterling)
which were derived from his vast estates and
investment in capital market with his bank here
in UK. Presently, this money is still with the
bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have
limited days to live due to the cancerous problems
I am suffering from.
Though what bothers me most is the stroke that
I have in addition to the cancer. With this
hard reality that has befallen my family, and
me I have decided to donate this fund to you
and want you to use this gift which comes
from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of
widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the
down-trodden, physically challenged children,
barren-women and persons who prove to be
genuinely handicapped financially.
It is often said that blessed is the hand that
giveth. I took this decision because I do not
have any child that will inherit this money
and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very
wealthy persons and I do not want my husband
hard earned money to be misused or invested
into ill perceived ventures. I do not want a
situation where this money will be used in an
ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking
this bold decision. I am not afraid of death
hence I know where I am going. I know that I
am going to be with the Almighty when I
eventually pass on. The Almighty will fight
my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not
need any telephone communication in this regard
due to my deteriorating health and because of
the presence of my husband relatives around me.
I do not want them to know about this development.
With God all things are possible.
I want you to stand as the new beneficiary to the
funds. As soon as I receive your reply I shall
give you the contact of the bank in UK. I will
also issue you a Letter of Authority that will
empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund.
My happiness is that I lived a life worthy
of emulation. Please always be prayerful all
through your life. Please assure me that you
will act just as I have stated herein.
Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and
members of your family.
