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.

Subject: Dear Ranaud,
My name is Yusuf Razack son of Saliu Razack former personal assistant on
financial matters to the Sudanese President. I got your contact through
the internet and decided to write you in trust and confidence. It is my
humble decision to solicit for your understanding and cooperation in this
business that will be mutually beneficial to both of us.
At the mid term of the rebellion which is still on till date, my father
thinking fast decided to send my brother and I out of the country (Sudan),
with a total sum of (US$45M)( Forty five million United States Dollars).
This money was meant for the purchase of arms and ammunitions for the war,
but my father had to divert the funds as a way of frustrating the on-going
war that has claimed the lives of millions of Sudanese people.
The bills were carefully moved as diplomatic baggage to Madrid, Spain.
Unfortunately, because of my father’s political influence he was
assassinated last December. Due to our father's death, we decided not to
return to the country but seek for political asylum and look for an
opportunity to safeguard the money for proper investment and prepare for
our future. We however, discovered that as political asylum seekers, we
are not allowed by law to seek for any gainful employment or open and
operate a bank account.
We therefore need your assistance and co-operation in concluding this deal.
You are needed to come over to Madrid, Spain and open a non-resident
account where the entire funds will be deposited and subsequently
transferred to your nominated account by telegraphic transfer. The whole
arrangement will be strictly under our supervision and the transaction will
be absolutely risk-free. And the transfer to your account would be
completed the same day.
We intend to share the money upon successful completion of the transaction
as follows: - 26% will be entitled to you for your assistance, while 70%
will be for us and 4% will be set aside to take care of expenses. Should
this meet your utmost consideration, kindly write back immediately to
confirm your earliest date of arrival?
The confidentiality of this transaction cannot be over emphasized as we
trust and believe that you will oblige us the security and attention it
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.

criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
