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 highly delighted to be in contact with you and sorry for the embarrassment this mail might be to you as we have not met or known each other before; it is with trust and believes that I write to you. I am Barrister Nic Newton, a Legal Practitioner Base In Nigeria. I have decided to contact you so that we can carry out this mutually beneficial business transaction due to the confidence I have in you .
My late Client Mr. Mohammad Assaf a Saudi Arabian, until his death deposited a total of $7.9 three years ago with an International Bank . He was an Oil Consultant/Contractor with the Chevron Nigeria Ltd. Since I am the personal attorney to Mr.Mohammad Assaf , he gave me the custody of the deposit documents, and as such entrusted me with the Legal Rights to transfer and execute this deposit to any Next of Kin after his demise. I have since tried to locate any Next of Kin to my late client without success; hence I decided to contact you so that you can rightfully/legimately stand as the next of kin(Beneficiary) to inherit the deposited sum. This is a staggering sum, and I need a reliable person to help me with necessary arrangements to transfer the deposited sum out of Nigeria before it is decleared unservicable.
By virtue of my position as an Attorney, I will arrange the documents in your name so that you can legitimately apply as a Next of Kin to my Late client,since you bear the same last name with him. Note: You not being his blood relative will not be a barrier to the success of this transaction. You will be entitled to 50% of the total sum should you be willing to assist me in this business transaction, and I will get the remaining 50%. I will prepare a formal agreement to guide us in this transaction for accountability purpose. Please contact me at email@example.com as soon as possible so that we can start processing the documents.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Barr. Nic Newton (Esq.}.
