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.

Subject: Your certified cheque


I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Confirmable Bank
Draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from
you since that time.

Then I went and deposited the Draft with DHL DELIVERY COMPANY,West
Africa,I travelled out of the country for a 3 Months Course.

What you have to do now is to contact the DHL DELIVERY COMPANY 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 the Cheque
showing that it is not a Drug Money .

The only money you will send to the DHL DELIVERY COMPANY to deliver
your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($290.00
USD)Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.

Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except
$290.00US Dollars. 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 DHL DELIVERY COMPANY now for the delivery of your
Draft with this information below:

Email Address:dhl.deliverycompany2008@gmail.com <Address%3Adhl.deliverycompany2008@gmail.com>
Phone:009 234 803 538 3772

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct
telephone 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
email to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their
Security Keeping fee of $290.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.

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

Best Regards,
Mr.John birch.
