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.

Subject: Hello pls...
Due to the death of my Father General Abacha the former head of state
of Nigeria in June 1998, I have been thrown into a state of
hopelessness by the present administration.I have lost confidence with
anybody within my country.
I got your contacts through personal research, and had to reach you
through this medium.
I will give you more details when you reply. Due to security network
placed on my daily affairs I cant visit the embassy so that is why I
have contacted you. My Father deposited $12.6million dollars with a
security firm abroad whose name is witheld for now till we communicate.
I will be happy if you can receive this funds and keep it safe I
assure you 20% of this fund. I will need your telephone/mobile numbers
so that we can
commence communication.I await your urgent response.
