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.

Subject: CONTACT FEDEX COURIER COMPANY IMMEDIATELY

Greetings!

I am Mr. Scholes. I have been waiting for you since 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 FedEx Delivery, West Africa. I travelled out of the country
for a 3Months Course and I will not come back till end of march. What
you have to do now is to contact the FedEx Delivery 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 FedEx Delivery to deliver
your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($185.00 US)
Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Delivery Company so
far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except
$185.00US 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 FedEx Delivery now for the delivery of your
Draft with this information bellow:

Contact Person: Mr. Philip Wayne
Email Address:fedexdeliveryservice001@live.com
Telephone:+(234) 7035278341

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 $185.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

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

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Scholes
