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.

We need your help!
I am the
son of late Pascal Kabungulu Kibembi (foremost human rights activist in the
Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo). My father died on June, 20th,
2006, as a result of inhuman treatment torture meted out on him while in
prison by the government of Laurent Joseph Kabila which lead to his untimely
There was a twist in my father's success story following
his confrontation with the government of Laurent Joseph Kabila, who
has been quite high-handed and dictatorial in his policies and day-to-day
running of the affairs of the Congolese people. My father being a
human rights activist criticized his government in both local and
International newspapers.This infuriated him and he clamped my father in
jail until his Death on June, 20th, 2006.Before the arrest of my father, his
attorney acting upon his instructions transferred the sum of Twelve Million
Seven Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars ($12.7m) from his local Banks to a
Security and finance Firm Abroad. He did this for fear of his accounts being
frozen by the government.
Following my father's death, and the
present face-off between Laurent Joseph Kabila and my family, I was
then advised by my father's attorney to seek political asylum in Lome Togo,
West Africa and to seek the assistance of someone based in your country to
receive the amount in question being ($12.7m), since I have the intention of
relocating my family there with the aim of settling down there and
investing. As the eldest son of my late father and according to our
tradition in Africa, I have now inherited my entire father's wealth, I
have decided to give you 25% of the total amount for your assistance
I shall expect you to keep this transaction
confidential due to the present circumstance of my family. To finalize this
transaction you will have to contact me via my e-mail Address above & email@example.com, further
discussions will be centered on how and when you shall be meeting with
the Security and finance Firm Abroad.
We urgently await your
Yours Faithfully and God blessed.
Audre Kibembi Jnr.
