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.

Attn: Director/CEO,

May I have the pleasure of introducing myself? I am Dr. John korthaus, a senior staff and chairman of Tender Board Committee on the award of contracts in Department of Works and Housing here in South Africa. I got your contact information from an international directorate in my quest to find a trustworthy person on whom I can repose confidence for colossal international transaction. My aim of sending this proposal to you is to solicit for your assistance and co-operation to transfer some huge amount of money into your account overseas. Therefore, this communication should be held in high confidence.

My colleague and I in the Department of Works and Housing wish to transfer into a safe and secured account overseas, the sum of US$32.5Million (Thirty Two Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) which is over-invoiced amount from contracts we awarded to foreign contractors who have been duly paid on completion of their various contracts. This money right now is in a coded account in the Reserve Bank of South Africa. However, by virtue of our position as civil servants, we cannot acquire these funds in our names or in the names of companies here in South Africa.

I was therefore asked by my colleagues on trust and sincerity to look for a reliable international outfit partner abroad into whose account the sum of US$32.5 Million will be transferred. We have agreed on the following sharing ratio if you accept our proposal, Seventy percent (70%) for us and Thirty percent (30%) for you, the Account owner. My choice of you for this transaction is basically hanged on your field and profession hence this business proposal. If you are interested in this deal, please supply us with this informations:

1. Your Full Names: 2. Your Country:.
2. Your Company Name 3. Your Address
4. Your Telephone Numbers: 5. Your Fax Numbers:
6. Your Occupation. 7. Your Age

Please, it is very important that you also provide me immediately with your bank details to execute the transfer. As I have finalized all necessary arrangements here with the paying bank for the immediate execution of the transfer before contacting you. send the following bank informations.

1. Your Bank Name:2. Bank Address:..
3. Account No: 4. Swift Code or Routine Number:.. 5. Beneficiary Name:

Please, be informed that we shall commence processing of claims of payment once we receive your interest from you, and the funds will get into your account within seven (7) working days by Telegraphic Transfer (T.T).
