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: Greetings to you
Greetings to you ,
My name is Mr. Kofi Davison .I write you this proposal in good faith,
believing that you will assist me for our mutual benefits and would not
betray me. I believe it is the wish of God for us to meet through this
means. Mr. Emad Ahmed made a (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months,
valued at US$14,600,000.00 (Fourteen Million, Six hundred Thousand US
Dollars)with my bank here in Ghana. I was his account officer before I
rose to the position of manager. The due date for this deposit contract
was 20th of August 2005. I have tried my possible best to locate Mr. Emad
Ahmed to notify him about this, but all my efforts proved abortive. I
later discovered that Mr. Emad, his wife and only daughter were among
the victims of bomb blast during the war in Iraq.
Unfortunately, he has no other living relatives to inherit this fund.
Now, a new Financial Law, which takes effect in two month's time,
stipulates that any bank account more than $5,000,000.00 [Five Million US
Dollars] will be investigated and the bank shall produce the account
owner for clearance. This is a Government measure to check money
laundering. If I do not find a way to move this money out of the country
immediately, in two months time, it might be reverted to Government treasury
because I cannot provide Mr.Emad since he is now late.
I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to the
account,so that my bank head quarters will release the funds to you.
There is no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. Let me
know how much percentage you will take, so that both parties will be
satisfied. Contact me as soon as you receive this message, so we can go
over the details.
Please,treat as top secret.
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....
