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: My Good Friend
First let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Bruno Benson,
credit officer of the Wales investment Bank UK. I have a concealed
business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client
General.Ibrahim Moussa who was with the Iraqi forces and alsobusiness
man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value
of ($20.5 M)Twenty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars
only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even
during the war early this year. Again after the war another
notification was sent and still no response came from him.
find out that the General and his family had been killed during the war
in bomb blast that hit their home.After further investigation it was
also discovered that Gen. Ibrahim Moussa did not declare any next of
kin in his official papers including the
paper work of his bank
deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office
that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Twenty
million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my
bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.
What bothers me
most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 3
years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Government if
nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion
to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of
kin to Gen. Ibrahim Moussa so that you will be able to receive his
WHAT IS TO BE DONE: I want you to know that I have had
everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have
contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that
will back you up as the next of kin to Gen.Ibrahim Moussa, all that is
required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full
Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job.
you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for
claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of
probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will
be provided by you.
Once the funds have been transferred to your
nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me, 30%
for you . Should you be interested please send
me your private phone
and fax numbers for easy communication and I will provide you with more
details of this operation.
