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.

My dear friend,
Thanks for your mail and your concern. In my last mail to you i introduced myself and gave you a summary of the present predicament i have found myself and how i lived my life(financial-wise).my failing health has necessitated my present over view of life and the meaning of life itself as it relates to day-to-day living.even surgery which is a last resort has been done but the cancer has already spread into the stomach and intestines. Find attached evidences of my present health status under Intensive care unit in my hospital bed, may god accept my soul.
It is for this same reason i have randomly searched through the internet email directory to find somebdy who has the predisposition to accomplish the task of passing on a privately kept fund of US$18 (Eighteen)million dollars to charitable organisations as he or she deems fit,since i cannot do this myself due to my failing health.it was this random search that yeilded your contact email address with which i sent you my first email.note that this was just a probing move to establish contact,because i am sure you know as well as i do that most people would snatch at the offer considering the large amount involved and more also since the disbursement of this fund would be entirely in the hands of the claimant.for this reason i felt that after our initial communication i should be able to determine if we can proceed based on certain indices as well as intuitive feeling i would deduce.
I hope my first mail did not emabarrass you? if it did,i apologise for this.the fund in questions is privately kept and i wanted to put it in capable hands for disbursement.other such funds that i left to my relatives to disburse to charity were all plundered and used for their personal purposes.for this reason i have decided that within the confines of my hospital room and the privacy of my computer(to which i have internet connection) to look for a suitable person to transfer ownership of the deposit to,and after claiming the money,disburse 90% of the $18 million dollars to various charitable organisations of your choice in various countries and then retain 10% of the money for your effort.the $18 million dollars is physical cash in $100 dollar bills packed inside two metallic trunk boxes deposited in the security vault of a private finance/security company in The Netherlands. This is not a business proposal and i do not expect any returns or share of the money.i am dying and i have distributed most of my earthly possessions to various individuals,groups and organisations.this deposit of $18 million dollars is the bulk of what is left.it is unknown to my other relatives.if i do not find a suitable person to disburse the funds as i plan to,then on my death the finance/security company holding the deposit would have to notify my next of kin to claim the deposit as stipulated on the deposit agreement.and from what i have seen of how they spent the other funds i designated for the same purpose,leaving the fund in their care would be a collosal waste of all i have worked and lived for.
If you would be able to help me fulfil this last living request,i would need you to get back to me on the following issues,
1.That you are in a position to be trusted with such a large amount of fund,and that you have a heart for charity and thus would not have any problems locating the rigth charity and human aid groups to disburse the fund to.it would be nice to know what charities you have in mind to donate the money to.
2.That you are ready to work honestly with my humble person who will finalise the process for this transaction,send you all relavant deposit documents as well as send you the necessary authorisation document to retrieve the deposit on my behalf and disburse the fund.
3.That you are willing to contact the security company holding the deposit to discuss the terms of releasing the trunk boxes and bear the expenses that would be involved so the deposit can be released to you.
4.That you fully understand this transaction up to this stage and you are ready to proceed under these terms.
Please send your full contact details as i requested in my first mail.I will need you to send me your direct tel/fax number and your full address. In addition, I would also like you to tell me more about yourself and what you do presently.
I await further communication.
