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.

From: Mr. Fui Tsikata
My name is Mr. Fui Tsikata, a political activist and an attorney. I am a member of my party's executive committee.
My aim of contacting you is to crave your indulgence to assist us in securing some funds, abroad for safe keeping which incidentally was kept to help us finance the forth coming elections in 2008. Fortunately with my immediate assistance, and contact, we were able to deposit the money in a security vault abroad pending when the fund would be needed. The need to contact you arose from the fact that the present government is cracking down on the opposition and trying to trace all the funds that belong to it, if they succeed in tracing this fund to us, they will seize it and thereby incapacitating our campaign abilities. We wish to relocate this fund in a foreigner's name to avoid any trace. All I need from you is an assurance that you can handle the amount involved (US$52,000,000) comfortably and that I can also trust you with this arrangement.
Be rest assured that there is no risk involved since I have taken care of everything. I want you to immediately inform me of your willingness in assisting and co-operating with us, so that I can send you full details of this transaction and let us make arrangement for a meeting and discuss at length on how to transfer this funds. I am able to give you my name without fear because I got your email address contact from a very reliable and dependable friend whose judgment I trust completely, so it would be appreciated if you can maintain the confidential nature of this letter and the whole transaction.
Please if you are not interested in this business, let me know in time,so that I can contact someone else. You can send your reply through my alternative email address for security measures : firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear Miss Young,
My attention has just been drawn to two individuals whose name and image appear on your website.
first, Mr Fui Tsikata whose name appear with a story purporting that he needed assistance with the transfer of some money. In fact, this is a decent individual and an oxford trained lecturer at law at the university of Ghana where you can verify his credential. i don't know for what motive would somebody embark on this mission to defame him.
second, the picture of Amadi Bethel
is really the picture of a former finance minister of Ghana between 1995 and 2000. His name is Mr Kwame Peprah. you can also verify this by contacting the ministry of finance in Ghana.
you can also find out about the two individuals by typing their names in google search and follow the information you will find on the.
Thank you very much.
