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.

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank
Draft of $850,000 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from youm since
for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if then draft
has expired or getting near to expire and Dr.Wilson the Director Bank of
Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will
expire. So I told him to cash the $850,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to
cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out
of the country for a 5 Months Course and I will not come back till ending
of May 2008.

What you have to do now is to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES as soon as
possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment to you because
of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering
Charge, Insurance premium.
The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICES to deliver your
Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($187.00 US)
bOne Hundred & Five United States Dollars only being Security Keepingn Fee
of the Courier Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay
any other money except $187.00 US Dollars.

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct
number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to
