Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled "Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT/
DEBT SETTLEMENT

Re: Benficiary File No. ZIB/FGN/1826452378/CBN

As it is the will of the President of The Federal Republic of Nigeia to clear all outstanding payments due to be remitted to indebted contractors/beneficiaries; we have been charged to work assiduously with Zenith International Bank in seeing that payment as stated on File:ZIB/FGN/1826452378/CBN is remitted to you.

Based on our paper-work with the bank, we have been able to put aside any possible bottle-neck as in the case of fees, ie Processing/Transfer fees that may hinder you from receiving this payment because several beneficiaries who solicited for their payment during the past Administration weren't able to afford paying for the .1% Transfer Charge; apparently, they ended up having their payments suspended indefinitely.

Thus, the bank thought it better to deduct such fees through their interconnectivity charge, which is the reason we gave approval for them to remit the fund through their ATM payment system, since your card will be charged at the ATM point you make withdrawals; consequently, you are not to exceed $4,000.00 per day.

This we believe would be the best possible way for you to receive your payment, but we never envisaged courier fee to be an encumberance at all. Having given instruction to the bank not to deduct any charge from the money to be paid to you, but remit intact the amount we have on file, which already have been placed on the ATM card; I ask that you send the courier fee to the bank, since nothing can be done to that effect because the bank is not willing to accept responsibility of paying the courier fee with reason that it has to do with International package delivery, not locally, which must be handled with much safety, having in mind the content of the package.

Unless you want to forfeit the money, please let us know before the set time as have we instructed the bank to withdraw any unclaimed payment, or you want to do it yourself, you are welcome to visit our office at the Aso Rock, Presidential Villa, Abuja to pick up your payment.

If you wish to pick up the payment yourself, send us a notification on when you will get here and your particulars before Wednesday, July 2nd.


Thank you

Sir Nicholas Oluwagbo Adurami
