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: COMPLIMENT FROM LUISA
Goodday Beloved Friend,
This is a proposal in
context but actually an appeal soliciting for your unreserved assistance in
consummating an urgent transaction.
By way of summarized profile of
myself, I am Senator Luisa Pimentel Estrada, a 74years old lady and the first
wife of Joseph Ejercito Estrada (former head of state and President of
Philippines) who is presently held in detention in a hospital outside
However, the current administration of Gloria
Arroyo(The President of Philippines) the present Government have resolved to
freeze all known assets of Joseph Ejercito Estrada including properties at
home and abroad and are presently embarking on to seize the various bank
accounts of my Husband in Switzerland,UK and Australia. We cannot be held
responsible for the sins of my Husband. In view of this plight, I expect you
to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond to this distressed call to save
our family from a hopeless future. And if you agree to help, we shall discuss
the disbursement ratio in our next correspondence after we have been
acquainted. In fact, the attack on our family (The Estrada's) is so devastated
to an extent of seizing our traveling passport, family accounts, trying some
members of our family in court for offences allegedly committed by my Husband
and even restrict us from seeing my husband.
Ihave carefully moved
out these funds (US$18 million), before my husband was impeached to an
offshore Deposit Company.From past experiences, many people I had regarded as
close friends has capitalize on my family's travail to run away with my money.
In order to avert this negative development, I in conjunction with my son
(DANIEL) now seek your permission to allow my attorney do a CHANGE OF
OWNERSHIP/REASSIGNMENT OF CREDIT of stated funds from the deposit company to
your name, so that the funds (US$18million) would be released to you as the
new owner (on behalf of me and my family).In view of this grievous threat to
our Economic and personal survival, our family trustee have secretly protected
the deposit, you are to assist us to lay claims of the consignment with the
aid of all legal documents that will be forwarded to you as time goes on.
am writing because when I deposited the money in the deposit company, I told
them that it belonged to a foreign business partner and my present position
will not allow me to claim the funds. Consequently, I will present you as the
owner of the funds in the Deposit Company so you can be able to claim them.
This is simple. I will like you to provide immediately;
2. Contact address
3. Telephone and fax numbers
receive this information,My son will prepare the necessary documents that will
put you in place as the new owner of the funds. The money will then be
released to your custody by the Deposit Company, for us to share. No doubt
this proposal will make you apprehensive,please we employ you to observe
utmost confidentiality and rest assured that this transaction would be most
profitable for both of us because we shall require your assistance to invest
our share in your country (buying of properties like houses, hotels etc). This
is why your urgent action and response is of priority to enable us concluding
this transaction in a timely and professional manner.
your swift response via this email address: email@example.com
