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.

FROM THE DESK OF MR ADAMS MOYO.,

I am , The Bank Manager of Bank Of Africa Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.I have
urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.
On 31 July, 2000,Mr. Andreas Schranner a British Oil consultant/contractor
with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Made a numbered time (Fixed)
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$7,400.000.00 (Seven million
Four hundred thausand us Dollars) in my bank.
Upon maturity,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but
got no reply.
After a month, I sent a reminder,and finally I discovered from his contract
employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that,the bank customer ,Mr
Andreas Schranner, perished in the Air France concorde New York bound flight
with family; please click here:
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL,
and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that he declare his
wife the next of kin to the fund deposited in all his official documents,
including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.
This sum of US$7.400.000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.
No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of the Burkina
Faso, at the expiration of 7(six) years, the money will revert to the
ownership of the Burkina Faso Government if nobody applies as the next of
kin to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in
as the next of kin to the fund,and so that the fund of this deceased bank
customer will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.
This is simple, I will like you to apply as the next of kin to this fund
through writing to the bank, your full informations shall be needed so that
the bank can accord you the next of kin.I will feed you with the iformations
that will put you in place as the next of kin.
A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then
facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60%
for me and 30% for you and 10% for the expence.
There is no risk at all, as all the information for this transaction will be
giving by me, and my position as the Manager guarantees the successful
execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply
Upon your acceptance, I shall then provide you with the application letter
and more details that will help you understand the transaction. Please send
me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.
Please, observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require
your assistance to invest my share in your country.
