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.

this Will within two weeks or else the money will be credited to the Government
treasury as per law here.

favor and therefore, you are required to contact me immediately to start
the process of sending this money to any or your designated official account.
