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.

FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT
MINISTRY OF FINANCE
FIRST, I MUST SOLICIT YOUR CONFIDENCE IN THESE LETTER. I AM DR. USUMAN DIOP, THE DIRECTOR OF TREASURY AND BILL EXCHANGE AT THE FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT IN THE FEDERAL MINISTRY OF FINANCE WHERE I WORK.
MYSELF AND THREE OTHER COLLEAGUES IN THIS DEPARTMENT ARE CURRENTLY IN NEED OF A FOREIGN PARTNER WHO WILL PRESENT A DESIGNATED SAFE FOREIGN ACCOUNT WHERE WE CAN TRANSFER INTO THE SUM OF TWENTY THREE MILLION, SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS ( 23,700.000.00 ). THIS FUND ACCRUED LEGITIMATELY TO US AS COMMISSION FROM FOREIGN CONTRACTS, THROUGH OUR PRIVATE CONNECTIONS. THE FUND IS PRESENTLY WAITING TO BE REMITTED BY THE APEX BANK TO ANY FOREIGN BANK ACCOUNT PRESENTED BY US FOR THIS REMITTANCE.
HOWEVER, BY VIRTUE OF OUR POSITIONS AS CIVIL SERVANTS IN OUR COUNTRY, WE CANNOT ACQUIRE THIS MONEY IN OUR NAMES, BECAUSE AS HIGH PLACED CIVIL SERVANTS, WE ARE NOT ALLOWED BY THE CIVIL SERVICE CODE OF CONDUCT TO OWN OR OPERATE FOREIGN BANK ACCOUNTS OUTSIDE OUR SHORES. ON THE OTHER HAND, IT IS NOT SAFE FOR US TO KEEP THE MONEY HERE DUE TO OUR UNSTABLE POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT.
I HAVE BEEN DELEGATED AS A MATTER OF TRUST BY MY COLLEAGE, TO LOOK FOR A HONEST FOREIGN PARTNER IN WHOSE ACCOUNT WE WILL TRANSFER THE SUM OF $23,700,000.00 US DOLLARS FOR MUTUAL BENEFIT AND FURTHER INVESTMENT PROJECTS IN YOUR COUNTRY. ON SMOOTH CONCLUSION OF THIS TRANSACTION, YOU WILL BE ENTITLED TO YOUR OWN SHARE OF THE TOTAL SUM AS GRATIFICATION. WE HAVE AGREED THAT 30 % OF THIS MONEY WILL BE FOR YOU AS OUR FOREIGN PARTNER, IN RESPECT TO THE PROVISION OF A FOREIGN BANK ACCOUNT FOR THE TRANSFER, 5% WILL BE SET ASIDE FOR EXPENSES INCURRED DURING THE TRANSFER PROCESS AND 65% WOULD BE FOR ME AND MY COLLEAGUE. THEREAFTER I AND MY COLLEAGUE WILL VISIT YOUR COUNTRY FOR DISBURSEMENT ACCORDING TO THE PERCENTAGES INDICATED, HENCE THE REASON FOR REQUESTING YOUR SINCERE CO-OPERATION IN WORKING TOGETHER AS PARTNERS AND RECEIVE THE FUNDS IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT WITH TOTAL TRUST.
PLEASE, YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO KEEP THIS INFORMATION A TOP SECRET AS WE ARE STILL IN THE SERVICE AND INTEND TO RETIRE FROM SERVICE CIVIL SERVICE AFTER WE CONCLUDE THIS DEAL WITH YOU. I WILL BE MONITORING THE WHOLE SITUATION HERE IN THIS MINISTRY UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE MONEY IN YOUR ACCOUNT AND ASK US TO COME DOWN TO YOUR COUNTRY FOR SUBSEQUENT SHARING OF THE FUND ACCORDING TO PERCENTAGES WE AGREED UPON. ALL OTHER NECESSARY INFORMATION WILL BE SENT TO YOU ON YOUR ACCEPTANCE TO CHAMPION THIS TRANSACTION WITH US. I SUGGEST YOU GET BACK TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE THROUGH MY DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER 00221 4829179 OR THIS CONFIDENTIAL EMAIL STATING YOUR WISH IN THIS DEAL.
THANKS AND BEST REGARDS.
DR. USUMAN DIOP.
