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.

Permit me to use this medium to congratulate you as your name and e-mail address came up in a random selection conducted by our Law Firm, G.Bello Law Chambers in Lagos, Nigeria.
My name is GANNI.F.BELLO (San.). A personal attorney to our late Client Mr. James Harrison who worked for an oil firm here in Nigeria. Mr. James Harrison a well-known Philanthropist before he died made a Will in our law Firm stating that $3.5M (three point five million U.S. dollars
only) should be donated to any Philanthropist of our choice overseas for the purpose of donating to orphanages and Less privileged around the world.
Since we did not know who exactly to make the beneficiary to the said will and how to go about it, we have made a random selection and your e-mail address was picked as the beneficiary to this Will. I am particularly interested in securing this money from the Bank, because they have
issued a notice instructing us to produce the beneficiary of this will within two weeks that happens to be you or else the money will be credited to the Government treasury as per law here.
It is my utmost desire to execute the Will of our late client and to this end; you are required to contact me immediately to start the process of transferring this money to any of your designated official account.
I urge you to contact me immediately for further details bearing in mind that the Bank has given us a date limit.
Please respond as soon as possible by contacting me via Email address as follows: email@example.com
