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.

Subject: ATTENTION FOR BENEFICIAL
Attn: The Director&Ceo.
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise but honestly I do
not intend to surprise you.
In introduction my name is Richard Uduku I write this letter in respect
of my intention to transfer and invest the sum of US$18,000,000.00 in
your company which I inherited from my Father who was a Politician and
oil/Gold dealer from Guinea Bissau . But unfortunately he was shot dead
by his political opponent during one of his business trip to Cote D Ivoire.
I am now left with my only surviving mother who unfortunately has been
critically ill since 2 months after the death of my father because of
the shock of his late husband's death. And because of how my dad's political
opponents has been trying to eliminate our entire family, I then had to
run out of my country with my mum for our dear lives.
The fund in question is now with the Financial Firm where it was deposited
and all it's Documents are still intact with me. In view of this plight,
I expect you to be trust worthy and kind enough to assist me ,I hereby
agree to compensate your sincere and candid effort in this regard with
20% of the total fund and 5% for expenses,which may arise during the transaction.
Whatever your decision is please contact me immediately through this email
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read
