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.

Subject: YOUR URGENT RESPONS NEEDED

BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
BANK DKI JAKARTA INDONESIA.

URGENT RESPONSE NEEDED
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department
of BANK DKI JAKARTA INDONESIA. I am writing to you in respect of a desperate
search for a reliable partner to champion this transaction. In my department
we discovered an abandoned sum of $6.5m US dollars (Six Million, Five
Hundred Thousand US Dollars). In an account that belongs to one of our
foreign customer who died along with his entire family in December 2000 in a
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting the next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless
somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his
supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash
leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery
that i decided to contact you and release the money to you as the next of
kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since
nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank
treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
Unclaimed after six years, the money will be transferred into the Bank
treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of a foreigner as next of kin in
this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner
and an Indonesian cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I will give
you 30 % of this money as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a
foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the
business and 60 % would be for me. There after I and my family will visit
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,
you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased
indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone
and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in
the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of
the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this
transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear
as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
MR. AHMED HANDOKO.
