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.

FROM THE DESK OF:
MRS ROSE DONALDSON BADOU
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)
I am MRS ROSE DONALDSON BADOU the Director in charge of Auditing section
Bank OF AFRICA(BOA)Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso in West Africa.
AS IT MAY INTERESTYOU TO KNOW, I GOT YOUR IMPRESSIVE INFORMATION THROUGH THE
INTERNET SEARCHHERE IN OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO.
I have decided to contact you on a project that will be very beneficial
toboth of us.During our auditing in this Bank,I came across some amount of
money belonging to a deceased foreigner Mr.Chen Huang head of the bank's
Department of Foreign Exchange who died with four others finance officials
on February 16,1998 in a plane crash.
The fundhas been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of
the fundin our custody from hisrelation before my discovery to this
He was head of the bank's Department of Foreign Exchange.The said amount is
U.S$1.5, 000.00 dollars(ONE Million, Five Hundred Thousand
USDollars).deceased fellow. Their death occured as a result of plane clash.
Please View this
FOR YOUR INFORMATION BEEN YOU NOT A TAIWANESE WILL NOT POSE ANY PROBLEM
FORTHE SUCESSFUL TRANSFER OF THIS FUND INTO YOUR ACCOUNT. All the whole
arrangement to put claim over this fund as the Bonafide next of kin to the
deceased has been put in place and directives will be relayed to you as soon
as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also
benefityour self to this great business opportunity.
In this country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate
aforeign account. This is the actual reason why itwill require a second
partyor fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank and
alsopresent a foreign account where he will need the money to be
re-transferredinto on his request.
Our Banking law stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after eight
years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed
fund.The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is
occasionedby the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe
cannot standas next of kin. I dont want this money to go into the Bank
treasury asunclaimed Bill. Be assured this transaction is 100% risk free.
On conclusion of this Project, you will be entitled to 35% of the total
sumas gratification,while 60% will be for me. AND the rest of the 5% will be
any expenses that we may inccur during this transaction. Please you have

to percentagespreviously indicatedand further investment will be discussed.

before we proceed. Please keep
this proposal secret, even if you are not interested.
