Miss Young

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.

Dear  Friend,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as
such. I must solicit your confidentiality and assure you that I am contacting
you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit. I am barrister
Andrew Burr,a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole  
executor to  'my
client' who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and who  
died in a
car crash with his immediate family in east London on the 5th of  
November 2000.

My late client a former Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco  
Oil here in
the United Kingdom and had left behind a deposit of Nine Million Eight Hundred
Thousand British Pounds Sterling only(9.8million)with a finance company. After
the death of my client, the finance company contacted me, as his attorney to
provide his next of kin who should inherit his fortune,this according  
to them is
their policy in sure circumstances.

Since the death of my client, I have written several letters to the  
embassy with
an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be
claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts
have been to no avail. I had to inform the finance company about my fruitless
effort in locating my late client close relative or his next of kin. The board
of directors of the company just adopted a
resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the  
payment of this
money within the next 15 official working days or forfeit the money as an
abandoned funds. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned  
property decree
of the company to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the  
period given
me. Also I have received official letters in the last two days suggesting a
likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in  
line with
existing laws of the institution.

Well I have reasoned very professionally and I can use a legal means  
to present
a next of kin of my deceased client. this is legally possible and  
would be done
in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I decided to  
search for a
credible person . I was urged to contact you,that I may, with your consent,
present you to the "trustee" as my late client's family member so as to enable
you put up a claim to the bank
in that capacity as a next of kin of my client. I find this possible for the
fuller reasons that you are of the same nationality .I have all vital  
documents
that would confer you the legal right to make this claim and would make them
available to you so that the proceeds of this bank account valued at  
9.8 million
Pounds Sterling can be paid to you before it gets confiscated or declared un
serviceable to the bank where this huge amount is lodged.

I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client but I think it is  
unprofitable
for his funds to be submitted to the government of this country or some
financial institution. My aim is to retrieve this funds and let it be  
claimed by
the deceased family name,etc. for this I seek your assistance since I  
have been
unable to locate the relatives for
the past 6years now.

I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased  
since you
have the same last name giving you the advantage so that the proceeds of this
account can be paid to you and then both of us can share the money,60%  
to me and
40% to you. I know there might be other persons out there with the  
same surname
as my last client, but after a little check my instinct tells me to  
contact you.
Can I trust you on this?

I shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back up your
claim.I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate  
arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of law. I will not fail to bring to  
your notice
that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any  
fears as
the required arrangements have been made for the
completion of this transfer.

Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get in
touch with me by my alternative email:andyburr_esq@hotmail.com for better
confidentiality and send to me your :Full Names,telephone and fax numbers to
enable us discuss further on this transaction. My contact number is +44
7624172568, If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage
of the trust I have bestowed in you,Thanks for your understanding.

Kind Regards.
Andrew Burr(Esq)

In this letter the scammer used the name of a real barrister, Andrew Burr. He is in no way associated with this scam. I received an email from the real Andrew Burr, and he asked me to add the following:

"Andrew Burr, Adjudicator, Arbitrator and Barrister, of Atkin Chambers, Gray's Inn, London, UK, wishes to advise and warn all recipients of unsolicited "spam" messages purporting to have been sent by him that such messages will not have not been sent by him unless they have been sent from his chambers' e-mail address, namely: "

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....
