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,

Compliment of the Season and Happy New Year. I have been waiting for you to
contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $800,000.00 United 
States Dollars
but I did not hear from you since that time.Then I went and deposited 
the Draft
with CHURCHILL COURIER SERVICE West Africa I travelled out of the 
country for a
3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of March. What you 
have to do
now is to contact the CHURCHILL COURIER SERVICE as soon as possible to know
when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date. For
your information I have paid for the delivering Charge Insurance premium and
Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it is not a Drug Money or
meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.

The only money you will send to the CHURCHILL COURIER SERVICE to deliver your
Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is $210.00 US Dollars only
being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again don't be
deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $210.00US 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 the CHURCHILL 
COURIER SERVICE
now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow:

Contact Person: Mr. Ade Jones
Email Address: adejones121@hotmail.com
Telephone:+ 234 806 350 0123

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 address. Let me repeat again try to contact them as
soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay
them their Security Keeping fee of $210.00 US Dollars for their immediate
action.

You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.
