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 presume this letter will come to you as a surprise, but as things
unfold,we will know each other better. I will start by introducing myself to
you. My name is Thomas Cole a solicitor at law.
I am writing in respect of a foreigner Richard Burson Young, who happens
to be my client an oil merchant and contractor who perished in a plane crash
of 31st October 1999[WITH EGYPTIAN AIRLINE 990] with other passengers
Since the demise of my client I personally have watched with keen interest
to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to
claim his funds of US$28.5m(Twenty Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollar) and all the relevant documents in the bank has no
record of any next of kin. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name
shall be used as his next of kin so I have contacted you to assist in
repatriating most especially, the money left behind by my client before they
get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where the huge
deposits were lodged.
Particularly, the Equity Development Bank Plc where the deceased had an
account valued at about USD28.5 Million Dollars has issued me a notice to
provide the Next of kin, or have the account confiscated.seek your consent
to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased since I read your profile
I know you can assist me as I need somebody who is trustworthy and willing
to assist me get the funds transfered.
Whcih the account which my late client operate is valued at USD28.5 Million
Dollars can be paid to you, as my clients Next of Kin, and then we can share
the amount on a mutual agreed percentage.
All legal documents to back up your claim as the deceased Next of Kin will
be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law and you should
endeavor to keep it confidential.
Please get in touch with me, to enable us discuss further aboutthis
