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 Friend,

How are you doing all these while that we seize from
communicating each other, I hope that you and your entire
family members are doing alright. Well I just want to inform
you that I have fought gallantly to conclude our transaction
successfully and the funds paid to me.

As a matter of fact it was not an easy transaction but God
has seen me through, I will not blame you for aid out
because not everybody will have the mind to execute such a
stressful deal. I want you to note that I am no longer in
Africa.
I am presently staying in Venezuela investing the huge
amount into Electronics manufacturing but mean while I
decided to reimburse you with the sum of $800,000 (Eight
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) due to the fact that
your name was used in securing approval of the claim.

The Certify Cheque bearing the $800,000 is left with my
Secretary in Africa, he is the one to dispatch it to you
because I don’t want anybody to contact me over here in
Venezuela, his name is Mr. Emmanuel Udom and his cell phone
# is as follows: 23418710202, you can contact him to verify
this.

I also want you to forward your contact address to me where
the cheque will be delivered to, I will personally forward
your address to him with instruction to go ahead and send
the Cheque to you. I appreciate your help.
Waiting to hear from you soonest.
Thanks.

Steven Mark.
