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.

I represent Law Firm Limited, a law firm that is into asset management, safekeeping of valuables. A benefactor victim of 7th July, 2005 under ground train bomb blast here in London that claimed 52 lives, whose identity can not be disclosed because of the Non Circumvention and Non Disclosure Agreement that was signed with the said benefactor when the funds was being deposited, made you the beneficiary of a package containing some amount of money.
The Non Circumvention and Non Disclosure of Agreement signed with the benefactor mandates us to fully divulge and disclose the beneficiary's identity after 18 months.
The finance and security company has been sending notice to us in order for the beneficiary to the deceased benefactor come forward in claiming the deposit trunk box, since the marturity date will elapse any time from now.
Due to this development, without waste of time I had to embark on an extensive search, during which I find your surname tally's with that of the deceased benefactor. Whereby, making it suitable to present you as the beneficiary to this claim.
Upon my receipt of your response, I shall make available copy of the deposit certificate that was issued to the deceased benefactor as contained in the file with our firm.
With the below needed information's I shall also issue a letter of authorization that will be forwarded to the Security Consignment Deposit Unit (CDU) informing them of your readiness to claim the safe trunk box in their custody.
