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.

Dearest Miss Young,
Mysteries has gone in my life. Life has become restless for me in this western part of Africa. 29th September 2005 later in the night the murders come without a pity without a mercy they kill my father in front of me.
My father was a wealthy merchant.The trouble began early last year when my father's associates started suspecting that my father is not giving proper accounts of all the tons of cocoa being cultivated by local farmers in some villages. This mistrust deepens between Jul-Aug 2005 when they discovered a very big some of money my father deposited with one of leading Bank here in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire.
As a result of this discovery and the enviness of the money ,he was killed by his associates.Before this, he revealed to me the reasons of his being hatred.He directed me where to get the documents of the said deposit, he told me that he enrolled my name as his next of kin for the deposit, being the only child. He advised me that I should not stay in the country because his enemies might equally kill me to reap all his wealth hence my mother died five years ago of cancer.
He instructed me that if he dies, that I should look for a foreign partner who will help me to transfer the money into the person's account and the person will help me to invest the money in his or her country. My father finally died on 29th of September and since then I was out of school and went into hiding because of my father's associates.
All the relevant documents of the $10.5 (Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand dollars) that was deposited in a security company are intact with me now.
