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.

My dear, I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from France.
Presently I'm in U.S.A for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.

Ask him to send you the total sum of $300.000.00 (THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND U.S DOLLARS ) certified bank draft which I raised on your favour as your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much.so feel free and get in touched with our camp secretary Mr. Onuma Basil and give him your address where he can send the bank draft.
Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the suffers at that time. This period, I'm very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand.
Finally,remember that i had forward instruction to the secretary on your behalf to send the bank draft (money) to you,so feel free to get in touch with him without any delay.
Best regards,
