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.

My Dear  Friend ,

Complement of the season ,this is to inform you due to your inablity to
send the registration fee of your cheque as requested by delivering
company,i have waited for long now yet no result, i then decided to
involve the issued bank to avoid losing of the funds since my boss is yet
to returned.

When i got to the bank ,the director told me that the cheque of 850.000.00
has three weeks to expire that after three weeks it will be invalid then i
told the director to convert the check into cash to avoid losing of the
money but he said i have to hire a lawyer before that can be done since
the beneficaiy of the cheque is not here ,a lawyer will be involve for the
signing and the procurement of vital documents needed for that.

Now am just confused because i don't have the money for that but i have no
choice than to hire a lawyer who will assist me on this matter to avoid
loosing of the money .
After meeting with the bank Attorney he told me that he will arrange for
the documents as well as the signings for the covertion of the cheque into
cash payment but he said i should pay him $2500.00 for the job , then i
explained to him that i don't have the money , i pleaded with him
that as soon as the job is done , then the money will deducted for his
payment before anything .

of your check , the money will be packaged in a security box and deposit
it with the bank official security company for save keeping as well as the
