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.

urgent to contact you with your email and to notify you finally about the
outstanding settlement of your compensation which is being given out by
the United Nation. This compensation is being made to all the victims that
have lost their money through any online transaction with Africans as a
result of Scam activity. It has come to our notice that many of you have
lost your money by falling victims to such Scammers and other related
online transaction/business. Victims are given lots of complains and
report to the United Nation.
Now UN have decided to give each of every one of you the sum of EUR
1,000.000.00 euros to pay all your debts and start a new business and
forget any form of online transaction. This is the reason why Kofi Anna;
the formal secretary-general of the United Nation organized this
Monitoring Institution, just to regain the image of Africa nations. For
this reason, we the United Nation Monitoring Institution has taken upon
ourselves to settle these very bills, because of the dubious attitude of
the apex scammers institution in Africa who have made things difficult to
their dear leaders & governments.

crystal to us that you are the rightful beneficiary to the said fund which
