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.

to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude. Be informed that I
got your particulars from a member of the South Africa Export Promotion
Council (SAEPC) who was at the Government delegation to your country during a
trade exhibition. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you

you must be aware now that my country south africa won the bid to host
the world cup by 2010,perior to this bid my committee was mandated to lobby
the members of board of Federation International Football Association (FIFA)
on selection of the country to host the world cup,the bidding was intensive
but at the end we got the hosting right.My committee was given the sum of $29
million dollars to lobby the members of the FIFA ruling body to make sure that
we win the hosting right. Considering the gain that comes with the hosting
right,South Africa's economy will receive a massive direct boost from hosting
the 2010 World Cup.

Nobel Peace Prize
winner Dr.Nelson Mandela who made an emotive case for South Africa,we got the

mandated by other committee members to look for a way to move the remaining
money to a safe place with the help of a foreigner who we can trust and is
