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.

Thank you for your kind response and words of encouragement.Honestly you
have a heart of Gold that is very rare to come by this days.Honestly nothing
will be of grate joy to me than to see that my dreams of helping the needy
I am giving you the authority to act as my beneficiary in this project and i
want you to promise me that you will not let me down on the long run.Please
my beloved do not judge by what you see or hear rather by what your heart
ministers to you.I strongly believe that our meeting in this manner is by
the will of God.
This project will be named after my death hence the doctors from the
institute of cancer here have confirmed that i have just few months to live
here on planet earth.I have no child of my own neither do i have anything
worth living for as it stands now,and that's why i have made this decision
to offer my fortune to the less privileged in the society rather than to sit
and watch my late husbands wicked relatives to get hold of it.
I know how i and my late husband struggled to build up this empire,but its
quite unfortunate that i am going to depart in this way.Please keep every
procedures in this project highly CONFIDENTIAL to enable things work out the
way i have planned.As soon as the funds is remitted under your custody,then
i will give you a mapped out plan on how the charity work will be
established in my name.Also bear in mind that as soon as the funds its been
retrieved from the bank were it has been lodged for a long term now,you will
have 35% of the total GBP5.2MILLION to your self and while the remaining
will be used for this special project.
Right now all i ask of you is to follow the instructions of my late husbands
attorney in order to procure the necessary legal materials that will
facilitate the release of the funds from the bank.I would have done this by
myself if not for the fact that i am highly incapacitated and indisposed.
I want you to get in contact with the attorney with the information's below:
EMAIL:email@example.com OR firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let me now as soon as you contact him.
