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. AHMED DERICK.
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT.
BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A)
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO.
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the Foriegn Remittance Department
of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of
US$15M (fifteen million US dolloars) in an account that belongs to one of
our foriegn customer who died along with his entire family in a plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless
some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidlines and laws 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 and other officials in my
department now decided to make this business proposal to 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 because the banking law
states that, if such fund remain unclaimed for a year and two months then,
the fund will be transfer into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in
respect to the provision of a foriegn account, and 60% would be for
me,while 10% will be for expenses (if there is any) There after I will visit
your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,
you must apply first to the bank as relation 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 wherein the
money will be remitted.
Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text
of the application to fill and send to the bank. I will not fail to bring to
your notice that this transaction is free risk and you should keep this
transaction (TOP SECRET) and do not let the bank notice that, I contacted
you to claim this fund but I will be giving you all information from the
bank until the fund is transfered into your account.
This transaction will only take us 14 banking days because as a banker, I
know what to do and move the fund into your account without any delay. You
should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been
made for the transfer.
You should contact me as soon as you receive this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Mr, Ahmed Derick.
