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.

ATTN MISS YOUNG ,
Gooday and how is your family? i hope all is well,this mail might look so surprise to you but due to the fact that you do not know me or heard about me before,but due to the fear of God i have and what has being going on in this our country Nigeria and the level of corruption here and there.
My name is James Peters,i am the office cleaner/messanger to the Pay Master General of the federation, last week when i was sweeping his office i happened to see a Certified Bank Draft which was written on it pay the sum of $5M only to MISS YOUNG as part payment of his out-standing funds.
Basically my aim of contacting you is that i am a poor man here with three kids,James jnr,Agnes and Ruth and my wife Kate,we hardly see our three square meals everyday,because of my poor salary which i am being paid,but when i saw this Certified Bank Draft bearing your name i decided to contact you and see whether you want me to dispatch this Certified Bank Draft to you.But before i do that i will like to know that you will help me and family according to this my conditions below for me and my family,s benefit and betterment.
(1) I will send your Certified Bank Draft to you through DHL which is valued $5m as a part payment of your funds, you will pay over there the DHL fees in your country for me so that i can dispatch to you the Certified Bank Draft through the courier service,because i do not have money to send it to you from here,because i am poor.
(2)Before i start you will send to me an e-mail promising me that you will make sure that i and my family will be well taken care of when you receive this first $5m of your Certified Bank Draft and you will confirm in your account that the Draft has cleared.
(3)That you will make all travelling arrangement for my family and i,and as soon as we arrive your country you will secure schools for my children and a good accommodation and jobs for my wife and i.
(4)That as you receive your money,you will send to my family and i some money to secure International Passports and Visa respectively,based on your invitation letter.If you send to me an e mail about this and promise me that i will not be betrayed,i will then steal out your Certified Bank Draft and send to you which i have already hidden out in his office,and you will promise me that it will not be heard by anybody,because my job will be jeopardized.
Furthermore,i feel this is the only way you can receive your funds,because a lot of fraud is going on here,but i suggest that if you are not interested in this you will as well notify me.
Thank you sir and my sincere regards to your family.
Mr James Peters
