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.

I am Echenique Manuel,one of the resident principal-attorneys for the Uria & Menéndez Abogados chambers,London Office.Our parent chambers(in Madrid),has been the European legal consultants to Late Mr Morris Thompson,a multi-millionaire and chief executive officer of the
multi-national Company,Doyon Ltd-Alaska.
Late November 1999,Mr Morris Thompson breezed into our London office and met only me.He inquired from me a good security or Finance Company where he could make a lodgement of the fund(US$15M);a proceeds from a deal he just concluded.He had a flight to catch back to the united states same day.I promptly introduced him to Standard Trust and Finance Company(a subsidiary of Citibank-London),and also went with him to open the account and deposit the fund before jetting-off back to the united states.
Unfortunately,on january 31st 2000 Mr.Morris Thompson,his wife and only daughter all lost their lives in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which was heading to San Francisco and Seattle from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico,crashed into the Pacific Ocean not far from Los Angeles.
You can read more about the crash on visiting this link.
Being the only person who knows about the fund he deposited in london,i had gone to the Finance/security company to inform them about the unfortunate incidence and that i was going to bring his next-of-kin to claim receive the fund,since his supposed next-of-kin being his wife and only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody other person(except me),with the knowledge of this fund(US$15M) which he deposited in London.
Since then(6 years ago),i had made spirited efforts to locate any person who could possible be related to him BUT all has being to no avail;and the fund is still very intact at the Finance/security Company here in London.AND thats the reason why i`ve contacted you.
I have contacted you to come into this deal with me and be presented as the next-of-kin to the deceased so that the Finance/security Company can release the fund(US$15M) to you for the sharing between both of us.This is necessary as the fund will only be liquidated/Confisticated into the bank`s treasury if nobody comes to claim it.
All I require is your honest cooperation and assistance to enable us see this deal through.Be rest assured that as a lawyer/attorney,I shall ensure that this transaction is executed smoothly/quickly under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of the law.
If you`ll agree to go into this transaction with me,you shall be entitiled to 40% of the total amount;while i shall have 50%.The remaining 10% shall be shared to charity organisations etc.
If you`re interested,do get in touch with me on my personal/direct contact details as indicated thus: email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and Tel no: +447922243470.
Most importantly,i want you to maintain absolute confidentiality of this transaction until the fund has been released to you and we`ve shared it.
Thanks and best regards,
