Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. But he does not give up if he thinks it is still possible to convince the victim. He could try a new scam with hidden millions or a big lottery winning. Another approach is a compensation letter where he promises the victim a big sum as compensation. The compensation money does not exist, - it is simply the start of a new scam. The letter below is an example of such a letter.

Attn:My Good Friend

I am remembering you in keeping to my personal belief that one good turn it
is said,deserves another.

It is strictly on this premise I made out amount of U.S$1,500,000.00 in
certified Bank draft for you and kept it with my attorney back home shortly
before I travelled out of the country.

I was able to pull through with another foreigner,the transaction for which
you previously extended your cooperation to me even though it did quite work
out then due to circumstance beyond us.
Be guided therefore to get in touch with my attorney ASAP via his below
given information so that he can release the draft to you as per my standing
instruction:-

Name:-??? Barr.Michael Rhodes
Email:-?? mrhodes60@yahoo.fr

And when this is done,do notify me in writting.Wishing you the very best in
life.
Regards,

Mr.Aminu Martins
