Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email from friend. He had received a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where he was promised millions for
his assistance. These stories are all lies, and if you respond, sooner
or later you will be asked to pay a fee. If you pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until you give up or run out of
money. You will never see the millions, because they never existed.
