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.

and the choice of your country I wish to introduce myself, My name is Michael
Okwor a staff in my bank. I have this urgent deal to transact with you if you
can do it. There is an unclaimed deposited fund of $15 Million in the name of
Smith Shaw with no traceable address. This fund has stayed over 10years in the
bank without a claimant. Professionally, any unclaimed money for a period
exceeding 10 years is recovered by the bank. I being in the position of the
file wants any foreign partner to assume the next of kin of the late Smith
Shaw and write to the Financial Trust Bank for claims. I will advice you
adequately on how to do it when I hear from you. Bear in mind that I will
stand as a neutral body to the whole transaction. You will only be dealing
with any attorney we choose. Your compensation has been taken into
consideration as the claimant of the fund. To be precise, your share is 20% of
the Total amount. Any financial assistance we receive from you will be
re-imbursed immediately the fund gets into your custody. I am willing to give
you the details of the money and the way we can execute the deal successfully
but let me see the desire from you first. Mr.Michael Okwor
