Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. But he does not give up if he thinks it is still possible to convince the victim. He could try a new scam with hidden millions or a big lottery winning. Another approach is a compensation letter where he promises the victim a big sum as compensation. The compensation money does not exist, - it is simply the start of a new scam. The letter below is an example of such a letter.

Dear Friend,

It is my pleasure to reach you after our unsuccessful attempt on our
business transaction. Well, I just want to use this medium of time to
thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving
the funds.

I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds
with the help of a new partner from London Mr. Chris Rayner. Everything
was perfectly done on last three weeks friday because we strike a deal with one of the Lady
Accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF), and she
rendered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this idea and
everything worked out successfully.

In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the
funds, I have decided to compensate you with the total sum of one
million two hundred thousand USD($1.200,000.00 usd) in a certified international Cashier's
cheque.

This is from my own share. I did this simply to show appreciation to
you for your kind support and assistance even though we couldn't succeed
due to some unforseen circumstances. Presently, I am in South Korea for
investment with my own share under the advice of my partner.

In the light of the above, you are therefore to contact my personal
secretary in Cotonou Benin Republic his name is Mr. James Walterman and do
send him your contact address where you want the cheque to be sent to
you,reach him via my company e -mail address (edwardlynncompanylimited@yahoo.fr)
so feel free to get in touch with him to send the cheque to you without any delay.
