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 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 will travel out of the country for a 3
Months Course and I will not come back till end of
October. 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 Fees
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 ($350.00 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 $350.00US 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 COURIER SERVICE
now for the delivery of your Draft with this information

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

receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember
