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.

How is your health and your work?
I believe it is wonderful. But it would have been better with me on your side. My dear things are very bad for me here in the refugee camp where i am living today.
I was a first year student in the university studying law before the ugly incident that killed my parents that put me in this horrible place i found myself today.
This place is like a prison as we are only allowed to go out on Mondays and Friday of the week as given by the united nation refugee camp rules and regulation here in Senegal.
I thank God for the pastor of Christ the king church located in the camp where i send and receive emails. We are given only fifteen minutes to check our mails, as i am using the computer there are so many refuges here who want to use the computer.
My dear i will like you to help me come over to meet with you in your country for a better life as my health is going down daily here due to the poor condition of the camp where i am living.
My dear please there is one other thing i will like you to do for me as i need some body who will assist me due to my refugee status here in Senegal.
Before the death of my father, he deposited a sum of $2.7 million dollars in one bank which my name appears as the next of kin.
Already i have informed the bank about my plans to claim this money but the bank told me to look for a foreign partner who will assist me in the claim due to my refugee status here in Senegal.
As a refugee i don't have a direct claim over the money but can only have it through an appointed representative.
I will however appreciated if you can call me tomorrow with this telephone number +221-77-142-85-37. in the church office located in the refugee camp so that i can tell you more about what i am going through.
When you call, please tell Rev David Williams that you want to speak with me so that he will send for me from the female's hostel to talk with you.
God bless you as you help me out from here,
