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 have been waiting for you to come down here and pick your funds but you din't show up. However i left behind the sum of £1,000,000.00 GBP (One Million Great British Pounds) with my secretary in Africa because I have been in Africa for business and i am back in Spain for official duties. I want you to contact my secretary and make arrangements to have your package delivered to you in person. Contact her right away and enquire on methods of funds remittance; Certified Bank Draft or Offshore ATM Debit Card (Accessible all over the world)

I gave her your "delivery address" but you have to reconfirm it to her with your details as she may require for verification and parcel ref # 09FMF/NIG/01DG, to avoid any mistakes on the delivery as the draft contains a large amount. Let me know as soon as you receive your package.

Note: You and a few others of your nationality are nominated to receive these funds (For your private/personal use and investment) as compensation from the Federal Ministry of Finance Nigeria to your country in settlement of bad debts owed and appreciation of international relations for the past 50 years with your country.

Yours Faithfully,

Prof. Aliyu Lawal
DG-Budget Office, Finance,
