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 you since
for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft
has expired or getting near to the date of 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 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of
Febuary, 2009.

What you have to do now is to contact Fedex COURIER COMPANY 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 Company to
deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is
($100.00 USD) only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.
Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $100.00
US Dollars.

I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you
will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact Fedex
Courier Company Servecis now, for the delivery of your Draft with
this information bellow;

1,Your full Name
2, Your Delivery Address:
3, Your Cell Phone Number:
4,Your Age:
5,Your Country:

Directors Name: COLLINS RAY
Companys Name: Fedex Courier Company
Email Address: f.postoffice@gmail.com
Telephone numbers:
011-234-708 405 4251.
009-234-708 405 4251.
+234-708 405 4251.
+234-708 405 4251.

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct
telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and
ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package
over there and know when it will get to your door step so that you can
sign on it. Let me repeat again,Try to contact them as soon as you receive
this mail and ask them how you will make the security fee of $100 usd to
them to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security
Keeping fee of $100 .00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

Note this. The FEDEX COURIER COMPANY don't know the contents of
the Box.

I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the contents
was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Donít let them
know that box contents is money ok

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Marvis Jones.
