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,

I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund released and transferred to Deutsche bank Germany, under the cooperation of a new partner from South Africa, Who is a citizen of United Kingdom.

I just left Nigeria some weeks ago, I have traveled out to Germany, where he assisted to deposit the money, and the money has been currently deposited with DEUTSCHE BANK GERMANY.I will finally remain in Germany for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn't forget you’re past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.

Now contact my secretary, his name is Mr.JAMES WHETSTINE, and his email address is: jameswhetstine@googlemail.com ask him to send you a wire transfer in to your bank account or Bank Draft worth of $800.000.00, which I have dully signed under your name which I mapped out for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter.

Note that if there is any correction need to be made on your name please I will advise you to reconfirm it as soon as you contact him secondly please I didn’t make any provision for the wire transfer or delivery charges.

Please ensure that you give him the correct name and address as soon as he contacts you, I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touch with my secretary (JAMES WHETSTINE) I instruct him to make wire transfer to your nominated bank account or send you a certify bank draft.

Please, do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the sufferings, and stress at that time, i am very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to release $800.000.00 USD to you, so feel free to get in touch with him, and he will send the your compensation without any delay, I am now a happy man in life.

Thanks, and remain blessed.
