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,

How are you today, hope all is well with you and your family?

I hope this mail meets you in a perfect condition. I am using this
opportunity to thank you for your great effort to our unfinished
transfer of fund into your account due to one reason or the other
best known to you. But I want to inform you that I have successfully
transferred the Cheque out of the company to someone else who was
capable of assisting me in this great venture .

Due to your effort,sincerity, courage and trust worthiness you showed
at the course of the transaction the organisation wants to compensate
you and show their gratitude to you with the sum of $350,000.00
(ThreeHundred and fifty thousand United States Dollars) I have
authorized the finance house where I deposited your money to issue
you an international certified bank draft cashable at your bank.

My dear friend I will like you to contact the finance house for the
collection of this international certified bank draft. The name and
contact address of the Person with your Cheque Mr. Murray Paul, is as


CONTACT AGENT Mr. Murray Paul.
EMAIL: murraypaul_financieragent02@yahoo.dk

At the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects
which myself and my new partner are having at hand. Finally, remember
that I have forwarded instruction to the finance house on your behalf
to send the bank draft to you as soon as you contact them without
delay. Please I will like you to accept this token with good faith as
this is from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks and God bless you and your family. Hope to hear from you soon.

My sincere advice to you as a christian is that you should endeavour
to pay your tithe to a bible believing church when you get the prize.
