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.

CONTACT FEDEX COURIER SERVICE W.A.
Greetings,
 
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 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 2008.
 
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 ($362.00 USD) Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, do not be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $362.00US Dollars. I would have paid that but they said no because they do not 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.Roland Brisson.
Email Address: FEDEX.DELIVERYPOST@live.com <fedex.deliverypost@live.com>
Tel:+234-8034354486
 
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 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 $362.00 USD Dollars for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.

 
Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Pauline Jones.
