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.

Goodday TO You!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $350,000 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to the date of expire and
Dr.Wilson the Director Bank of Africa told me that before the draft will
get to your hand that it will expire.

So I told him to cash the $350,000USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of July 2008. What you have to do now is to contact SWIFT EXPRESS COURIERCOMPANY as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium.

The only money you will send to the SWIFT EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is($90 .00 USD) Ninty United States 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 $90 .00 US 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 SWIFT EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY now, for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;

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 door step so that

Note this. The SWIFT EXPRESS COURIER COMPANY don't know the contents of the Box.I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the contents was money. this is to avoid them
