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.

HELLO MY DEAR FRIEND,

HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY? I HOPE THIS MEETS YOU AT THE RIGHT TIME.

I AM MUCH DELIGHTED AND PRIVILEGED TO CONTACT YOU AGAIN, AFTER ALL THESE TIME,
IT TAKES DESTINY AND COURAGE TO REMEMBER OLD FRIENDS AND AT THE SAME TIME,
SHOW GRATITUDE TO THEM DESPITE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT MADE AND DISRUPTED OUR
TRANSACTION, WHICH ULTIMATELY DID NOT WORK OUT AS WE HAD PROJECTED THEN.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT I'M HAPPY TO INFORM YOU ABOUT MY SUCCESS IN
GETTING THOSE
FUNDS TRANSFERRED UNDER THE COOPERATION OF A NEW PARTNER FROM PARAGUAY .
PRESENTLY I?M IN LONDON FOR INVESTMENT PROJECTS WITH MY OWN SHARE OF THE TOTAL
SUM. MEANWHILE, I DIDN'T FORGET YOUR PAST EFFORTS AND ATTEMPTS TO ASSIST ME IN
TRANSFERRING THOSE FUNDS DESPITE THAT IT FAILED US SOME HOW. BUT FOR THE FACT
THAT YOU HAVE ONCE PARTICIPATED IN THE PAST, I CANNOT JUST FORGET YOU SINCE I
HAVE FINALLY ACHIEVED THIS GOAL. IN THAT CASE, I PERSONALLY REMEMBERED
ALL YOUR
EFFORTS AND CO-OPERATIONS IN THE PAST.

NOW CONTACT MY SECRETARY IN NIGERIA HIS NAME IS, PAUL PORBENY, CONTACT HIM ON
HIS EMAIL ADDRESS: paul_porbeny@ozu.es ASK HIM TO SEND YOU THE TOTAL OF
(US$800,000.00) EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY,
WHICH I KEPT
TO COMPENSATE YOU FOR ALL THE PAST EFFORTS AND ATTEMPTS TO ASSIST ME IN THIS
MATTER.

I REALLY APPRECIATED ALL YOUR EFFORTS AT THAT TIME VERY MUCH. SO FEEL FREE AND
GET IN TOUCHED WITH MY SECRETARY PAUL PORBENY AND INSTRUCT HIM WHERE TO SEND
THE AMOUNT TO YOU.

PLEASE DO LET ME KNOW IMMEDIATELY YOU RECEIVE IT SO THAT WE CAN SHARE THE JOY
AFTER ALL THE SUFFERNESS AT THAT TIME. IN THE MOMENT, I?M 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 THE SECRETARY ON
YOUR BEHALF TO RECEIVE THAT MONEY, SO FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH HIM AS
SOON AS POSSIBLE AND HE WILL SEND THE AMOUNT TO YOU WITHOUT ANY DELAY.
