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

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.
