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.

From: Jerome Lewis Esq.
The inspiration to contact you is simply divine
providence, I am making this proposition because I have
to seek the partnership of a resource person to help me realize
I am Jerome Lewis Esq. a solicitor and investment
consultant based in London, United Kingdom. I was
attending a business luncheon in Berlin, Germany and
I got introduced to the renowned German businessman
and property mogul, Mr. Andreas Schranner(of the blessed memory).
He engaged my services as attorney and investment
consultant and my primary assignment was to spearhead
his investment forays in the United Kingdom. Three months later I
invited him to London and under my professional guidance and based on
my advice he made a fixed deposit of 30,000,000,00EUR
at with security companies in Germany and Netherlands.
This deposit was for 12months and upon maturity I made
effort to contact my client, I could not reach him or
any member of his family. I was forced to travel to
Germany and there I got the tragic news that on July
25TH, 2000, my client Mr. Andreas Schranner, his wife
Maria, their daughter Erich and husband Christina and
their two children perished in the Air France Concorde New York
bound flight; please click here:
I have made effort to locate any member of his family
with strong biological links to my late client without
The search to find a close relation is one that has
consumed time and resources. The institution is asking
me to either present a next of kin to late Andreas
Schranner or forfeit the deposit. My proposal is to
you as next of kin to late Andreas Schranner and
process the deposit and collect the deposits for our
My capacity as solicitor/investment consultant to my
late client gives me the discretion to package and
transfer the deposit to you.
I will give you 30% for your effort, 60% for me and
10% for Charity and Tsunami Victims. It will amount to
injustice if I do not take this decisive step to
secure this deposit, and invest it The late Schranner
was also a friend in addition to our business
I will wait for your reaction and response and then
together we can jump start this project and nurture it
Please, make sure you respond through this my
Your swift response is anticipated.
