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.

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never
met before.My name is Mr.Abou Diallo.I am the bill and exchange manager
in African Development Bank Burkina faso Annex.I Hoped that you will
not expose or betray this trust and confident that I am about to repose on
you for the mutual benefit of our both families.
I am writing in respect of a foreign customer(Mr.Lee Eunhee) of our
Bank who perished along with his next of kin with Korean Air Line,
flight number 801 with the whole passengers on 6th of augustus 1997 and for
your perusal you can view this site
Since the demise of this our customer, I personally has watched with
keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no
one has come to claim his funds of US$8.3M (Eight Million Three Hundred
Thoudsand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a
very long time.
On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the
Next of Kin since nobody is coming for the fund again.The Banking
ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 10 years,
because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury as unclaimed
fund after this period.
In view of this I got your contact through the internet when I was
making a research on a foreigner that I will use in this great
opportunity because i dont want the money to be recalled to our Bank
treasury as uncliamed fund.I have also agreed to offer 40% of the
total sum and the rest 60% will be for me.
The reason for a foreigner in the business is for the fact that the
deceased man was a foreigner and it is not authorized by the law
guiding our Bank for a citizen of this country to make the claim of the
fund.So the request of you as a foreigner is necessary to apply for the
release and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable Bank
account as the surving relation to the deceased.
If you are really sure of your integerity, trustworthy and
confidentiality, and accept not to cheat or disappoint me after this
business, reply with your telephone and fax numbers and banking account
details where you wish to receive the fund.
Upon receipt of the above mentioned informations,indicating your
interest in the business,I will send you by fax or e-mail a letter of
application which you will type and send back to our bank to enable us
start this transaction.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch
free and dont have any negative impact.You should not entertain any
fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund
has been finalized, this transaction will be completed within 14 bank
working days immediately we start the business.
Waiting for your urgent response and please kindly delete if you are
African Development Bank.
