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.

My name is Eve Attah,I am 22years of age, the only daughter of late Mr and Mrs Christopher Attah, from Republic of Cote d'ivoire Ivory Coast.My father before his death was a prosperous Cocoa and Gold merchant in Cote d'ivoire, Ivory Coast before his untimely death, after his business trip to Paris France, to negotiate on a Cocoa and Gold business he wanted to invest in Paris France.
My mother died when I was little ,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on 4th march 2003 he told me that he has the sum of five million,two hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$5.200.000) deposited in a security company in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire, that he wanted to use this fund to invest his cocoa business in France.
After the burial of my late father i came down to Abidjan and went to the security company where the fund is deposited with all the documents regarding to the deposit of the fund that was given to me by my late father.
I am just 22years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do.Now I want you to help me claim and transfer the fund for investment in your country because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:
1. Can you honestly help me.
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your custody.
Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as posible.
Thank you so much and God bless you.
