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.

I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft
of $1,000.000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since
that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with FedEx Express, West
Africa, I traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not
come back till end of July 2008. What you have to do now is to contact the
FedEx Express, 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 Check showing that it is not a Drug Money.

The only money you will send to FedEx Express, to deliver your Draft
direct to your postal Address in your country is ($300.00 USD) 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 $300.00US
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 Express, now for the delivery of your Draft with this
information bellow:

Contact Person: Mr. John Moore
Email Address:fedexexpress92@yahoo.it

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 email to avoid any
further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of
$300.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

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

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Helen Cooke
