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.

Greetings!
We the management and staff of  Multi-National Oil Company have your email
address as a winner in our end of year email ballotting promotion and have
deposited a certified Bank draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars with
the Chase Courier Company for collection, but we did not hear from you
since that time. Then we  went and deposited the Draft with CHASE COURIER
SERVICE, West Africa.

 What you have to do now is to contact the CHASE COURIER SERVICE  as  soon
as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because
of the expiring date. For your information, We have paid for the delivery
Charges, 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 charges you will send to the CHASE COURIER SERVICE to deliver
your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($210.00 US)
Dollars only being payment for Security Keeping Fee of the Courier
Company. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except
$210.00US Dollars as stipulated by the company. We would have paid that
but they said no because they don't  know when you will contact them and
in case of any demurrage.
 You have to contact the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of
your Draft with this information bellow:

  Finally, make sure that you re-confirm your Postal address(s) 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 that you
would provide.However, 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 only $210.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. You
should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your
Draft.
