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 am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of money
from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude
will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all
will be well at the end of the day. We decided to contact you due to the
urgency of this transaction.
We discovered an abandoned sum of $7.2M(Seven Million Two Hundred Thousand
United states Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customers who died along with his entire family. Since his death, none of
his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to this money as
the heir. We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies
for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking
guidelines. Upon this discovery, we now seek your permission to have you
stand as a next of kin to the deceased as all documentations will be
carefully worked out by us for the funds $7.2M(Seven Million Two Hundred
Thousand United states Dollars) to be released in your favour as the
beneficiary's next of kin.It may interest you to note that we have secured
from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of deceased
beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of
our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the following;
1. Your Full Names and Address.
2. Direct Telephone and Fax numbers.
These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim to the appropriate
departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer can
be made. We shall be compensating you
with 30% on final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall be for
us. Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for us for investment
purposes in your country.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the
trust we have bestowed in you, I await your urgent email.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
