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.

Hello dearest one
I am martin sankoh the only son of late former Director of finance,Chief
Vincent U sankoh Sierra-Leone diamond and mining corporation.I must
my agitation is real, and my words is my bond, in this proposal.
My late father diverted this fund acquired from the over influencing ofprice
of sales/purchasing of raw materials. now he has deposited the money
security company here in Abidjan. the amount is (nine Million Two hundred
Thousand United State Dollars) $9.2 Million.he deposited the money as
FAMILY VALUABLe & hospital equipment and he attached a strict clause to
the security company that the consignment is deposited on the favour of
his foreign partner which means that it is only his foreign partner have
access to the consignment. presently I am residing under political assylum
with my younger sister maureen, who is 17 years old.
Now the war in my country is over with the help of ECOMOG soldiers, the
present government of Sierra Leone has revoked the passport of all
who served under the former regime and now ask countries to expel such
person at the same time freeze their account and confiscate their asset but
they never knew about the secret deposit he made with the security

to you and you will furnish me with your full contact details so that i will
submit it to security company.

banked on you and I really wants to invest this money in your country,
their is stability of Government, political and economic welfare.Honestly I
want you to believe that this transaction is real and never a joke. My late
father Chief VINCENT SANKOH gave me the photocopies of the certificate
of deposit issued to me by security company on the date of deposit, and he
called me closer to his bed side before his call to glory (R.I.P) that i should
pray to God first, before contacting any foreginer and he warned me
stricly that i should avoid
afican men with their greedy and evil mind since this is the only legacy we
are inheriting from him.

Try and negotiate for me some profitable blue chip investment opportunities
which is risky free which I can invest with this money when it is
transferred to your account and you will be our guardian,personally I am
interested in estate management and game reserve areas, please try to
immediately you receive this message for more explanation.And promise me

NB:my late father used me the only son as next of kin on the
day of deposit and also told me I need a foreign assistance of a foreigner
who will stand as beneficiary to the consignment and his foreign partner
