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.

Compliments of the day, I hope that this letter will not constitute a sort
of embarrasement to you. Please bear with me let me introduce myself. I am
Barrister Tony Abbas, the attorney to Late Engr Alex, a National of your
country, who owned a metal producing factory (Metalco Enterprise) in Nigeria
and a personal friend died and left behind his deposit in a finance house
(GLOBAL SECURITIES & FINANCE COMPANY) valued at $14.5Millon (Fourteen Million
Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only).
My relationship with Engr.Alex started in 1999 when I was working
with the security company as a Legal Adviser, Marina branch. We met in my
social club's annual end of the year party and I introduced him to the said
security company where he deposit most of his treasures some few weeks
later,making me the Legal officer to the account which he operated until his
unfortunate demise.On the 31st of March 2001, Engr.Alex, his wife and their
two children were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle
unfortunately lost their lives.
After the incident i contacted Engr.Alex sister (Ms Martha Stevens)
which was his beneficiary/next of kin but unfortunately before she
could claim his estate she too died in September 11, 2001 terrorist
attack at the world trade center in the United State Of America. See
Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of Engr.Alex
extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. After these
several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over
the Internet, to locate any member of his family or anyone related to him
hence I contacted you . Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next
of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at
US$14.500,000 (Fourteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars
Only) can be paid to you and then you and I can sharethe money.70% to me and
30% to you.The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is
occasioned by the fact that My client was a foreigner and a Nigerian cannot
stand as a next of kin to a foreigner.
I am ready to re-negotiate the mode of sharing with you.Thereafter I will
visit your country for the disbursement/investing of my share according to the
percentages we agreed upon.If you find this proposal suitable for you do get
back to me with the following informations Your full Name and Contact
Address,Your private telephone Number Your Age Your Occupation and Position.
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. Please for the sake of
confidentiality send your reply to my private email : email@example.com
or call +234-805-823-3576.
Hoping to receive a positive response from you.
Barrister Tony Abbas.
