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 MR,SUNNY SIMON.
BILL AND EXHANGE UNIT AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK(ADB)
OUAGADOUGOU-BURKINA FASO. URGENT ASSISTANCE IN TRANSACTION
I am the manager at the bill and exchange department African Development
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$18.2m dollars (
USdollars)in an account that belonging to one of our foreign customer.Who
died along with his entire family in Monday,31 July, 2000 in a plane crash
in paris.Please visit this site that is one of the evidence the directors
brought in other to swallow the money at the end of the
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless
some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that
all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the
plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this
discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and
release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for
safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we
don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after five years, the money will be transfered into the bank
treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this
business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a
Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision
of a foriegn account ,10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the
business and 60% would befor me Thereafter, I will visit your country for
disbursement according to the percentage indicated. To enable the immediate
transfer of this fund to your designited bank account ,you must apply first
to the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of
application that i will send to you. So i will like you to send me your
private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and
location where in the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of
the application. And i will not fail to bring to your notice this
transaction is hitch-free and you should
not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made
for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive
this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Dear p/s reply this email thanks
Yours Faithfully, (MR,SUNNY SIMON)
