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.

as his first initial deposit. This Investor died three years ago
no WILL or AUTHORIZATION for re-transfer of his Investment and its
proceeds to the INHERITOR.I have personally carried out an
on the subject matter that takes me 12 months to finalize and was made
to understand that the Family or Relatives of the Investor knows
about his Investment with Fidelity and none have any records of all his
deposits and investment with us leaving an avenue for claiming of the
said funds with its accrued interest on presentation of a trustworthy
person that can stand as the INHERITOR to the deceased .
If you are interested, I can present you as the INHERITOR with proper
documentation that will qualify you to have the funds claimed and on
doing this, our establishment will not question the release of the
to you as I will make sure that we comply with the laid down rules and
laws of claiming the Investment of a deceased Investor in our
Our sharing ratio will be 50:50.Please contacted me for more detail
breakdown if interested.
Looking forward to hearing from you shortly.
