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 would like to appeal to you confidentialy to assist me concerning my late father's deposit in a (security firm) Financial Institution here in Abidjan of ($8 million USD) I want to move out of here because the crisis that started here for years now is still on, and there is no sign that it will be well with the country.
