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: FEDEX NOTICE

Greetings!
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 FedEx 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 FedEx 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 FedEx COURIER SERVICE to deliver
your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($385.00 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  $385.00
US Dollars.I would have paid that but they did not agree because they don't
know when you will contact them and in case of  demurrage.You have to
contact the FedEx COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft with
this  information bellow;
Contact Person: Mr. Daniel J.Cole
Email Address: info@fedexredstarexpress.company.org.uk

Mr. Wellington.
