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: CONTACT COURIER FOR YOUR DELIVERY PARCEL


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 traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will
not come
back till end of August.

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 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 money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE to deliver
your Draft
direct to your postal Address in your country is ($210.00 US) 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 $210.00 US Dollars.

Contact Person: Kelvin Smith EmailAddress: fedexdeliverydept.nig@gmail.com
Telephone: +234 80-661-01359

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 mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay
them their Security Keeping fee of $210.00 US Dollars for their immediate
action.

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

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Anita Ross
