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.

Kindly pay attention to this important brief.
I am Engr.Kentas Anderson,the new Information and Database analyst of
the Treasury/Payment Investigation Department of the CBN.The earlier you
pay good attention to this information,the better for you.I noticed
this just last week when I was going through several out-going payment
files on my desk.
I'm contacting you to stop you from any further contact to anybody
whatsoever.Both the people that have contacted you so far are not
protecting your interest.They are only planning to use your good name to claim
your fund against you.
I have decided to contact you through this important medium because CBN
as the Apex Bank has intercepted your fund ($25M) as a result of fraudulent
activities noticed among those that claimed to be helping you.
I'm pushed to CONTACT you because from what is going on,if appropriate
step is not taken, you will end up making a very big mistake if I fail
to bring this important message concerning the position of your fund to
you.Let it be known to you that I'm out to help you and anything you
cannot achieve with me now about your payment may not be achieved again.
I therefore contacted you on trust and with complete confidence that
you should as a matter of utmost importance, STOP any further contact
with anybody,person or group irrespective of the reason of contact because
apart from me,no other person can help you get the fund transfered to
your account in your country.
I want you to contact me upon reciept of this mail on
234 803 7405020. I will personally get any complications corrected at
my own expense as soon as possible and I will provide you with all the
relevant remittance information as we proceed.
I will oblige you with further information and would be glad you send
your private telephone /facsimile number for easy and confidential
1.After using my good office/position to accomplish the needful on your
behalf,you shall give me 20% only of the total fund after transfer to
2.Due to my position in the bank,I will prefer that you keep my
involvement 100% secret and confidential even after the transfer is executed.
A stitch in time they say saves nine.
This is the only reliable channel for you otherwise all other efforts
MUST be in vain.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
