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.

Dear Friend!

I am sorry for the delay in contacting you for your Confirm able Bank Draft of $900.000.00 United States Dollars as it was because 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 deposited the Draft with UNITED PARCEL COURIER SERVICE, WEST AFRICA, I have travelled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of October. You have to contact the UPS COURIER now for the delivery of your Draft with this information below to avoid demurrage:

Contact Person: Mr. Robert Wood
Email: unitedparcelservicenigeria03@gmail.com
Tel: +2347035324739

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 as I paid the delivering Charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.

Mr Amy Laslett
