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.

Please permit me to introduce myself to you.I am PETER FISCHER, An Accountant in London, United Kingdom.I got your contact from the British Council, and I have decided to contact you so that we can carry out this mutually beneficial business transaction. My late Client (A National of your COUNTRY) until his death aboard an AERO FLIGHT 801 in 2001 deposited a total of USD$5.5M with THAMES BANK, UNITED KINGDOM.
He gave me the custody of the deposit documents,and as such entrusted me with the Legal Rights to transfer and execute this deposit to any Next of Kin after his demise. I have since tried to locate any Next of Kin without success, hence I
decided to contact you so that you can rightfully stand as the next of kin to inherit the deposited sum by virtue of the fact you share the same SURNAME
as my late CLIENT.
I am writing you confidentialy because you will be able to claim this DEPOSIT because you have the same SURNAME as my Late CLIENT. You will be entitled to 30% of the total sum should you be willing to assist me in this business
transaction, 10% will be earmarked for taxation expense and I will get the remaining 60%.I will prepare a formal agreement to guide
us in this transaction for accountability purpose.Please reply to my private email: email@example.com
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
