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 sincere cooperation.
Your sincere cooperation.
I trained and work as an external auditor for
the EFG Private Bank Limited, Jersey, Channel Islands, working as part
of a bigger team thatcovers the entire Channel Islands. I have taken
pains to find your contact through a colleague that is connected with
the British Chamber of Commerce. On routine audit check last year, I
discovered some investment accounts that had been dormant for at least
9 years. All the accounts belong to a single/ one account holder with
monies totalling some million United States Dollars. Now banking
regulation/legislation here demand that I do notify the fiscal
authorities after a statutory time span of 8 years when dormant
accounts of this type are called in by the Jersey monetary regulatory
bodies. My investigations of the said account reveals that the
investor, a Briton had died in 1995-the exact time the account was
last operated. I can confirm with certainty that the said investor
died interstate and no next -of -kin to his estate has been found or
has come forward all these years. I am of the settled conviction that
using my insider leverage, I working with you can secure the funds in
the account for ourselves instead of allowing it pass as unclaimed
funds into the coffers of the Government of Channel Islands. This is
especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME with the said
investor. This exactly is why I crave your participation and co-
operation . I have in my custody all relevant documents (legal and
Banking) that will facilitate your claims as the beneficiary of the
funds. If this offer is okay by you, we can put minds together and
workout the modalities and our mutual benefits. I shall however leave
out the finer details of this transaction till I receive an affirmation
of your desire to participate . I do expect your prompt response.
Truly. Bela Heisig.
