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: HELP ME HELP THE POOR
Dear Son of God,
My name is Mr Manzi Singata ,an old
time businessman from South Africa . I would like to share my pain with you .
I have been diagnosed with cancer of the brain.I have tried all my best with
all the money i have to treat it , but to no avail. It has defiled all forms
of medical treatment, it is getting worse day by day
I have given
enough of my wealth to my family members,and i do not trust their competent to
help me distribute the rest of my welth to charity which happens to be my last
wish, so i decided to contact you. I have about US$1,000,000,00 ( One
million Dollars ) which i depostied with a security bank so long ago in Spain
that only my lawyer knows about and none of my family members know about it. I
wish you as a child of God to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it
to charity organizations.
Also i have decided that you
should take 15% from the fund for yourself for any expenses
incured during this endeavour.
Contact me: email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org , email@example.com
May the lord be with
