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.

The owner of this account is Mr. DONALDS WILLIAMS, a foreigner, and a miner at D&D INVESTMENT CO., a geologist by profession and he died since 1990.
No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is (USD 100M) One Hundred Million United States Dollars).
I want to transfer the [USD 100 M] One hundred million United States Dollars into a safe foreigners account abroad , but I don't know any foreigner.
