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 Air Parcel Express Courier Service..


I have been waiting for you ever since to contact me for your confirmable Bank Draft of $48,000.00 United States Dollars (Forty Eight Thousand Dollars)that was sent from CHEVRON GAS COMPANY in West Africa Region.This give away is to compensate victims of fraud across the globe but I haven't heard from you since that time.So I went and deposited the Draft with (APX COURIER SERVICE), West Africa. Meanwhile, I've traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and will not be back till the end of June.

What I would advise you to do now is contact the (COURIER SERVICE) as soon as possible to know when they would commence the delivery of your package to you because of the expiry date. For your information, I have paid for the delivery Charges, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate fee of the draft showing that it is neither neither connected to Drug Money nor meant to sponsor any terrorist attack in your Country.

The only money you will send to the (COURIER SERVICE) to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($380.00) US Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any money more than $380.00 US Dollars for the Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company.

I would have paid that but I was denied of it as they argued that they don't know when you will contact them in the case of any demurrage. You have to contact the COURIER SERVICE now with this SECRET PACKAGE NUMBER: (APXCS/5GZ) for the delivery of your Draft so they will be able to identify you only with this package number.

Details of Courier below:
Contact Person: Mr. Jimmy Flores
Email Address: apxcourier_services@live.co.uk
Telephone: + (234) 806 137 3275

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 inform you of when your package would get to your address once it is on transit. Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $380.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

Have a blissful day.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Williams Jones
