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,

It is my pleasure to reach you after our unsuccessful attempt on our business transaction. Well, I just want to use this medium to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the funds.

I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from South America Mr. Alfredo Gomez Castillo. Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady Accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF), and she rendered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this idea and everything worked out successfully.

In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the funds, I have decided to compensate you with the sum of $1.5Million USD (one million five hundred thousand United States Dollars) This is from my own share. I did this simply to show appreciation to you for your kind support and assistance even though we couldn't succeed due to some unforeseen circumstances. Presently, I am in South Korea for investment with my own share under the advice of my partner.

In the light of the above, you are therefore to contact my personal Attorney in Cotonou Benin Republic his name is Mr.kenneth james. and do send him your contact address where you want the funds to be transfer to you. Stated below is the contact information of my Attorney:

E-mail address: (
kenneth_james036@live.fr)
Mobile: +229 96 96 16 29
So feel free to get in touch with him to send the draft to you without any delay ok.
With my best regards,

Mr Idema Zongo
