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.

Dear Respectful One,

which I intend to establish in your country. Though we
have not met before but I strongly believe that one
has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes

Mr & Mrs Nelson Sidney . My father was a very wealthy
Cocoa and Timber merchant in Abidjan , the economic
capital of Ivory coast, my father was poisoned to
death by his business associates on one of their
outings on a business trip .
My mother died when I was a baby and since then my
father took me so special. Before the death of my
father resently in a private hospital here in Abidjan
he secretly called me on his bed side and told me
that, there is this amount of Eight Million,U.S dollars
($8,000,000.00) which he arranged in a trunk box deposited in a
security company here in Abidjan before he was poisoned by some unknown hoodlums.
He also explained to me that it was because of this
wealth that he was poisoned by his business
associates. That I should seek for a foreign partner
in a country of my choice where i will transfer this
money and use it for investment purpose such as:
Real estate management, Hotel management or Petroleum

the following ways:

country to further my education and to secure a
resident permit in your country.
