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.

Dear Ms Young
This is Mr Patrick Adams, I'm very happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred under the co-operation of a new partner from Cosovo Europe. Presently I’m in Cosovo for investment projects in livestock farming and dairy business with my own share of the total sum. And my partner has been a wonderful guide.
 
 
Meanwhile, I didn't forget you’re past efforts and attempts to assist me in the realization of this endeavor despite the fact that it failed to work out some how.
 
 
Now, contact my secretary in nigeria, her name is Mrs.Joy Uzo and her email address is (joyuzo_001@yahoo.com) only ask her to send you the total sum of $150,000.00 which I kept as international ATM master card for you as compensation for all the past efforts and attempts you made towards assisting me in this endeavor. I did and still do appreciate your efforts at that time very much. In fact I owe you an endless gratitude. So feel free and get in touch with my secretary Mrs.Joy Uzo, and instruct her where to send the ATM to you quickly.
 
 
Please, do let me know immediately you receive the ATM, so that we can share the joy together after all the joint efforts at that time. I am very busy here because of the investment projects, which the new partner and I are having at hand,
 
 
Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary on your behalf. So feel free to get in touch with her and she will send the ATM to you without any delay as instructed.
 
Thanks, and my greetings to your family and well-wishers
 
With utmost regards,
 
Mr Patrick Adams
