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.

Good Day To You,
Though i have not considered this medium to be thebest manner to have
approached you on this issue being that the internet has been greatly
abused over the
recent years and is very unsecured for informations of vital importance. I
have decided to take the chance seeing that no other means could have
been faster and more efficient than the E-mail.
I am Stewart Barculo, Staff of Standard Life Bank Limited.I am contacting
you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he placed under
management four years ago to the tune of fifty million united states
($50,000,000,00).I would respectfully request that you keep the contents
this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you
by as a result of this mail.I have been incharge of this department for
years and to best of my knowledge,i have discharged my duty with equity.
In the process of review of the financial report by my department, I
discovered that both of you have a similar last name, hence I contacted
so that I can give you further briefing on my intention and how to
the funds and estate he left behind.My proposal; you share the same
surname With our late
client; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct The security
to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation.Upon
the deposit,I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is: I
simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit
to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.
I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let
know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family
man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities.
There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth
