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 waited so long for you to contact me for your Confirm able Bank Draft of
$900.000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not get any reply from you.
The Company Director authorised me to displace your Bank Draft to you from
my desk before i went on the company study leave. Then I went and
travelled 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 UPS
COURIER 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 Fee of
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 UPS COURIER to deliver your Draft
direct to your postal Address in your country is ($180.00) US Dollars only
being Security Keeping fee of the Courier Company so far.

Again, 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 UPS COURIER now for the delivery of your Draft with this information

Contact Person: Mr. Robert Wood
Email Address: unitedparcelservice_nigeria020@yahoo.com.hk
Telephone: +2347035324739

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your POSTAL ADDRESS and DIRECT PHONE
NUMBER to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to
give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there
and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, try to
contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay
and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $180.00 US Dollars
for their immediate action.

You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.

God Bless You.

Mrs Sarah Benz
