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:MR AMA USMAN,
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA),
Tel:+226-76 53 63 04
I am Mr. AMA USMAN, the director in charge of auditing and accounting
section of Bank Of Africa(BOA) BURKINA FASO in West Africa with due respect
and regards. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that
will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.
During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came
across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on
31st October 1999 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his
account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either
from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.
Although personally, I keep this information secretwithin myself and
partners to enable the whole plans and idea be Profitable and successful
during the time of execution. The said amount was U.S $7.2M (seven million
two hundred United States dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got
your impressive information through the BURKINA FASO chamber of commerce on
foreign business relations here in BURKINA FASO.
Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the
bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer
this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and
needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your
interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this
great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this
country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate a foreign
account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of
transfer because I work in this bank.
This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who
will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to
the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to
be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification
and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole
money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On
smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the
total sum as gratification, while 5% will be set aside to take care of
expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone
bills, while 65% will be for me. Please, you have been advised to keep "top
secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we
conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm
the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for
subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated
and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice me
to invest in. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when
I hear from you.
I look forward to receive your mail.

criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
