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.

Kalmali Musa the Director for Project Implementation for Federal
Ministry of Health and Social Services Abuja Nigeria. Based on the
approval of the above stated amount for contracts awarded to an
offshore company for the supply of health equipments in my ministry, we
intend to transfer this amount to an offshore account and we solicit

nominated account you can provide for us. Your commission will be 40%
of the total sum, 10% for expenses and the remaining 50% is for my
