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.

Hello,

Please spare a few minutes to read this, there's practically everything to gain and nothing to lose.

It's all about buying a 163yr old statue and re-selling almost immediately at a higher price to a very eager buyer.

The prospective buyer is a British art collector who's crazy about such pieces. I met this guy while I was a salesman at the

Bamenda Handicraft shop during his last visit to Cameroon. He offered to buy this statue while it was still on display

at the Handicraft's shelves but sadly saw his offer turned down because the statue was already held on deposit by one art trader.

This guy gave me his contact info and asked me to notify him if this sale happened to turn sour. We've been in contact

a couple of times since he left Cameroon.He goes by the name of Nathan Fox

I accidentally bumped into the trader who bought the statue several weeks ago. Out of curiousity I asked about the statue

and he told me it was on the market for US$88.000. I recalled that Mr Fox was willing to bid up to US$143,000 on the statue so I naturally thought about notifying him when it dawned upon me that this was a huge opportunity for me to exploit without necessarily

hurting any feelings if Mr Fox was still ready to buy. To secure this opportunity I definitely had to put a virtual shield between

both parties since I could possibly lose the chance of making anything reasonable out of this

I eventually contacted Mr Fox with respect to the statue and still found him eager and ready to buy at a higher price(US$163,000).

Just like I suspected he promised to pay me US$5000 if I could secure this statue for him. I must admit that it's a great deal of

generosity but you'd agree with me that it's virtually nothing compared to what I would gain if I had this absolutely under my control.

There's a stress-free net profit of US$78.000 to be made on this and that sure makes my brain tick. I'm not a rich guy, I run a small grocery and my proceeds from this deal could lead me towards three more groceries like the one I currently run...something I could hardly dream of.

My proposal is very simple, I'm all about inviting you as a partner so that can we team up to buy this statue and re-sell to

Mr Fox. I'm requesting your assistance primarily because of my incapability to raise the US$88000 required to buy from the trader.

So far I've been able to raise only US$13000 which I've already paid in as a deposit for the statue. 60% of the net profit on this will be

yours if you are willing to join me on this.

Meanwhile, I'd like to emphasize that I'm not requesting any money upfront, I'll need your physical presence at one point if we

are to ride along. I'm ready to link you directly to Mr Fox and give you all the priviledges you deserve as the sponsoring partner if you

wish to team up with me. In other words you'd be doing the buying and selling which automatically means that the cash would be paid

into your hands when the deal comes to term. At the end of it all there'd be no bruised feelings,no losers...just winners and both parties

would be satisfied as well as you and me.

Please do well to reply if you can afford it, it's worth it's weight.

Best regards

Henri B. Obama
