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.

> convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all
> indications my condition is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious
> that I won't live more than six months according to my doctors.
> This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. My late
> husband was killed during the U.S raid against terrorism in Afghanistan,
> and during the period of our marriage we could not produce any child. My
> late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his
> businesses and wealth.
> The doctor has advised me that I may not live for more than six months,
> so I now decided to divide part of this wealth, to distribute to the
> development of the church and orphanage homes in Africa, America, Asia,
> Europe and Arab countries. I selected you ecause of your passion for
> humanity. And I prayed over it. I am willing! to donate the sum of $8.5
