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: You Have A package: Contact FedEx

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 May. 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 ($180.00 USD) only
being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be
deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $180.00 USD Dollars. I
would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you
willcontact 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. Benny Blunt
Email Address:fedex_delivery71@yahoo.com.hk
Telephone: +2348057547555.

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address; Direct
telephone number; Do send it 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 mail to
avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping
fee of $180.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. You should also let
me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Virgil H. Storrs
