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.

> In 2000, the subject matter; ref:SSCB/SCB/bank/77 came to
> our bank
> to engage in business discussion with our Private Banking
> Service
> Department. He informed us that he had a financial
> portfolio of
> 8.370 million United States Dollars, which he wished to

> made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the

> chief operations officer of the Private Banking Service
> Department,
> especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into

>
> We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being
> placed.I
> encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime

> The favored route in my advice to customers is to start by

> investments. Based on my advice, we spun the money around
> various
> opportunities and made attractive margins for our first
> month of
> operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this
> point at
> over 10 million United States Dollars, this margin was not
> the full
> potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed
> returns on
> investments. In mid 2002, he asked that the money be
> liquidated
> because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring
> cash
> payments in Europe.
>
> He directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited
> with a
> firm in Europe. I informed him that our bank would have to
> make
> special arrangements to have this done and in order not to
> circumvent
> due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction
> from the
> funds to cater for banking and statutory charges. He
> complained about
> the charges but later came around when I explained to him
> the
> complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement
> across
> borders has become especially strict since the incidents of
> 9/11.
>
> I contacted my affiliate in Europe and had the funds
> available in main

> followed

> deposited in
> a security consultancy firm, the firm is a specialist
> private firm
> that accepts deposits from high net worth individuals and
> blue chip
> corporations that handle valuable products or undertake
> transactions
> that need immediate access to cash. This small and highly

> organization is familiar especially to the highly placed
> and well-
> connected organizations. In line with instructions, the
> money was
> deposited. He told me he wanted the money there in
> anticipation of
> his arrival from Norway later that week. This was the last
> communication we had, this transpired around 25th February
> 2003.
>
> In June last year, we got a call from the security firm
> informing us
> of the inactivity of that particular portfolio. This was an
> astounding
> position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I
> managed the
> private banking sector I was the only one who knew about

> and I could not understand why he had not come forward to
> claim his
> deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately
> passed the

> of a heart attack in Cannes, South of France. We were soon

>
> The bank immediately launched an investigation into
> possible surviving
> next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come

> those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity,

> opening an account with us means no one will know of its

>
> This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having
> their mail
> sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that
> there are no
> traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they

> also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this

> What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical

>
> There is US$ 8,370,000.00 deposited, I alone have the

> details and they will release the deposit to no one unless
> I
> instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of

> all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are

> My proposal;I am prepared to place you in a position to

> the finance firm to release the deposit to you as the

> prepared

>
> But on the other hand, you as a foreigner and also with all

> necessary legal and official documentations from me and
> the

> customer. I will then officially communicate with the
> finance

> With these two things: all is done. The alternative would
