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.

Subject: Dear Martin,
I am Barrister Kevin McMurray(Esq, a Briton and the Personal Attorney of Mr.
George Martin, a national of your country, who worked with Chevron Oil
Company in England. On the 21st of April 1999, my client, his wife and their
three children got involved in a car accident along Chelsea Highway Road
that claims the lives of all occupants of the vehicle. It was a very sad
news and since then, I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate
any of the extended relatives of my late client which proved unsuccessful.
After several unsuccessful attempts to reach his family, l decided to trace
his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but of no
avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you on trust to assist me in
receiving the money left behind by my client in his bank account valued at
about Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars. His account is
about to be confiscated and declared dormant by his bank due to lack of
claim resulting from my inability to present his beneficiary as his Attorney
known to his bank over these years. Particularly, the officials of his Bank
have issued to me a notice/ultimatum to provide the next of kin of my client
or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.
Since l have been unsuccessful in locating his relatives over these years, I
seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since
you bear same surname with my late client so that the proceeds of his estate
worth Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars can be paid you
as his next of kin for our mutual benefit. The sharing percentage is as
follow if only you will be faithful and honest to assist me, 30% for your
assistance as next of kin, 65% to me and remaining 5% should be for expenses
or tax as your government may require.
All necessary legal documents that will back up your claim of this money
will be secured in your name with the personal and private information of my
late client in line with the stipulations of the English law. All I require
from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I
guarantee you that this business will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in
touch with me by my email to enable us discuss further steps to follow in
the actualization of this objective.
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....
