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 highly esteemed to write you this letter, I am Jeffrey Edward a solicitor and personal attorney to Mrs Anselma Piroddi,an Italian citizen, who before her death was an art collector.Anselma died a few years ago and left me the responsibility of locating and transferring $1.5million she left for her only son, Angelo Piroddi.
Since then I have made several inquiries to locate the benefactor but this has proved unsuccessful.
Angelo Piroddi has now been confirmed dead, and he died intestate, I have decided to contact you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind my client before they are confiscated or declared unserviceable by her bankers, where the deceased had an account valued at about £900,000.00 as at last months assessment.
The bank has issued me with a notice as the attorney to the deceased to provide the next of kin or the account will be deemed unserviceable within the next 21 official working days, since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of Angelo Piroddi's heirs over the years, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to Angelo Piroddi's.
As the attorney to Late Mrs Anselma Piroddi,I have all the necessary legal documents that will be used to back up the claim. All I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this arrangement through.
I guarantee that this arrangement will be executed under a legitimate banking procedure and the provision of the laws with regards to inheritance will be strictly adhered to, this will protect you from any breach of the law.
Lastly I have attached one of our numerous newspaper adverts asking for any one with information to come forward, and the time stipulated has lapsed, thus the need for your involvement.
Please take sometime to go through the attached newspaper extract and revert back to me for further arrangements.
