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: YOUR ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED
It is with mixed feelings that i communicate you through this medium
because am seeking a faithful, sincere and reliable foreigner who will
assist me in investing my late father's fortune in the amount of US$15,
This amount was originally deposited by our late father in a security
company in Ghana and just before my parents and two of my siblings were
killed by rebels in our family house in Sierra Leone, my father had
successfully lodged the money at the security
company in Accra, Ghana.
am the only survivors of our family. I am therefore seeking your assstance
to stand-in me as my late father's business partner and foreign investor,
to claim this money from the security company as the beneficiary. You will
also be required to assist us in investing our own part of the money
into viable business ventures abroad and for all this we are offering you
25% of the total funds as reward.
If therefore, you can assure me of your sincerity, honesty and ability to
help me secure the release of this amount/invest it, i will give you the
contact details of an attorney so he will present you as the beneficiary
to the funds while processing actual release of it on your behalf.
Please note that you stand no risk at all in assisting me to conclude this
transaction because the money is legitimately our family fortune. And also,
I will like you to furnish me with your complete information so that we can
be able to communicate
