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.

It is by his grace of that I received GOD, Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God's mercy and glory upon my life. I am Mrs. Louisa Wilson the wife of Mr. Harry Wilson, my husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Burundi for twenty years before he died in the year 2005.We were married for twenty-seven years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both GOD fearing people. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which our lord is against. When my late
husband was alive he deposited the sum of US $3.5M. (Three Million Five
Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars)with a security firm in Europe.
Presently, this money is still with the firm and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I cannot come over.
Presently, I'm in a hospital in Burundi where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations any where in the World.
Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are very wicked and self selfish people, it had been their wish to see my husband dead in order that they might inherit his wealth since we have no child. I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and also assist the tsunami victims. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not GOD fearing and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in
the bosom of the Lord.
I don't need any telephone communication in this regard Because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always and i don't want them to know about this development.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of Attorney who is in Europe as he will be the one to assist you in laying claims to the funds.
Yours in the sincerely,
