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 name is Peter Wood from London United Kingdom.I am the Private account officer to late Engr.Vijay.Young. Who is a citizen of (INDIA) and he used to work with an Oil manufacturing company here in london. On the 21st of April 2003, My client, his wife and their only son involved in a fatal motor accident along Oaklands Roads, Hanwell-London and unfortunately, They all lost their lives in the event of the accident, Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money and property left behind by my late client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the (Chase Manhattan Bank of London) where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly a Chase Manhattan Bank of London where the deceased deposited the sum of $8.5 Million U.S Dollars. Conseqently, the Bank have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to the deceased or they will have the funds confiscated within a short period of time.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over some years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that this $8.5 Million U.S Dollars can be released to you as the next of kin to my late client.
For both of us to share the money, I propose 60% to my self and 30% to you for your expected assistance, while 10% should be set aside for settling all expenses or tax as the government of your country may require All the necessary documents that can be used to back up the claim of this fund will be processed in your name as soon as we agreed together. All I require from you now is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through.
I guaranteed that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law here in London or over there in your country.
