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.

*From Mr Hamid Osman Abdalla*

*Please, this classified information that I am about to reveal to you might
either destroy, ruin my professional career or make me, depending on how you
receive and take it, the future and happiness of my family depends on it.
Please I need you to read this mail attentively to know the reason and
purpose why you received this mail from me, I didn't come to you by chance
nor by accident, I have come to you because your name has planted you in the
centre of relevance in my life and my professional career as a banker at
this very moment. Before I go further I will like to introduce myself to
you. *

*I am Mr. Hamid Osman Abdalla, a managing director and head of international
private banking division of Versus Bank-Côte d'Ivoire. I am contacting you
concerning a deceased customer, and an investment he placed under our banks
management 3 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the
contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the
information you come by as a result of this mail. *

*I contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication. I
would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of
interest to you. *

*In 2003, the subject matter came to our bank to engage in business
discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a
financial portfolio of 20.7 million British Pounds Sterling, which he wished
to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to
his case, I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto
chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially given the
volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We spun the money around
various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of
operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over 6
million British Pounds Sterling, this margin was not the full potential of
the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments. In mid
2005, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an
urgent investment requiring cash payments. He directed that I liquidate the
funds and have it deposited with a security firm. *

*I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise
instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited with a security
consultancy firm in London as he had directed. This security firm is an
especially private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth
individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products or
undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. *

*This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the
highly placed and well-connected organizations. In Line with instructions,
the money was deposited with them. He told me he wanted the money there in
anticipation of his arrival from France later that week. This was the last
communication we had, this transpired around 25th February 2005. *

*In October 2005 we got a call from the security company informing us of the
inactivity of that particular portfolio. This was an astounding position as
far as I was concerned, given the fact that I managed the private banking
sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit at the security
company, and I could not understand why our client had not gone forward to
claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him. *

*I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal
investigations department. Four days later, information started to trickle
in, apparently our man was dead. **If you are familiar with private banking
affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also
some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form,
he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an
account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely
held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts
anonymous. *

*It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your
details as a possible relative of the deceased because of the similarity in
your last names.*

*My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the
investigation and the only party to receive the results of the
investigation. It is quite clear now that our dear fellow died with no known
or identifiable family members. This leaves me as the only person with the
full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit
and the late beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, the security
company will however broadcast a request for statements of claim to VERSUS
BANK failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the
deposit to VERSUS BANK. This will result in the money entering the VERSUS
BANK Private Bank accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my
hands and out of the private banking division. This will not happen if I
have my way. *

*What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want
you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who
finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of
private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who sit
upon certain chairs and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by
now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is
26.7Million pounds deposited in a security company in
London. I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit
to no one unless I instruct them to do so. *

*I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as VERSUS BANK
Private Bank is concerned, the transaction with the late customer concluded
when I sent the funds to the security company in London all outstanding
interactions in relation to the file are just customer services and due
process. The security company has no single idea of what's the history or
nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the
deposit to any party that I may direct. This is the situation. *

* I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the
deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50. You with the same very name as
the original depositor would easily pass as the beneficiary with right to
claim. The alternative would be for us to have the security company direct
the funds to another bank with you as account holder. This way there will be
no need for you to think of receiving the money directly from the security
company as it is not a conventional financial institution; they accept
deposits from only organizations thus; what you hand over to them is what
you get back. They do not have the means to process the money.*

*I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this
may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates
that I make this move. Such opportunities only come once in a lifetime. I
cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control
of my destiny. *

*If you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life, 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 undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here
is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. VERSUS BANK,*

*I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you
with a name that has planted you into the centre of relevance in my life.
Lets share the blessing. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact
me through this email. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the
relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. *

*I do not want any direct link between you and I. My official lines are not
secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of
customer care in line with our total Quality Management Policy. Please
observe this instruction religiously. Do not betray my confidence. *

*I await your response.*

*Your Sincerely, **
Mr. Hamid Osman Abdalla*
