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.

I crave your
indulgence for the unsolicited nature of this letter, but it was
borne out of desperation and current development. Please bear with me.

I was the
Personal attorney to Mr. LOUIS MARTINEZ, a national of your country, who
used own an oil servicing company in Nigeria. Herein after shall be
referred to as my client. On the 21st of April, 1999, my client,
his wife and their three Children were involved in a car accident along
Sagamu express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost
their lives. I know that my client had no living kin but I went
ahead and made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my
relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. I only
did so to be double sure of this fact.
After these several
unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the
Internet, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in
repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they
get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this
huge deposits were lodged, particularly the Union Bank Plc where
the deceased had an account valued at about 10 million dollars This
account will be confiscated after five years if not claimed and we
have just about some month.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating
the relatives for over 5 years now I seek your consent to present
you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same
last name so that the proceeds of this account valued at 10 million
dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 60% shall
be for me and 35% for you while 5% is earmarked for expenses that
will be incurred during the process of Transfer of the fund. I
have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up
claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable
us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under
a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
