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.

GLOBAL TRUST FINANCE
4 BARTON STREET NOTTS,
NOTTINGHAM, NG 91 JJ
Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I will introduce myself as Mr. David Richards, a staff in the accounts management section of the GLOBAL TRUST FINANCE here in the United Kingdom. This is the detail of what I want you to assist me in doing, One of our accounts with holding balance of 4,000,000(Four Million British Pounds) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past six (6) years.From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account, a foreigner by name (Kurt Kahle) died in July, 2000 see this:
And since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of neither the account nor the funds. I have secretly discussed this matter with a senior official of this company and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from the deceased and funds released to you after due processes have been followed.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. On receipt of your response I will furnish you with detailed clarification as it relates to this mutual benefit transaction. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible if you are interested and with your trust. And also furnish me with the
YOUR FULL NAMES...........
YOUR TEL/FAX NUMBERS......
Conveniently get back to me at:email@example.com
As soon as I receive the above information I will give you the contact of the transfer department of the bank who will also clarify you more on this transfer.
