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: Attn Pls I Need Your Urgent Reply!!!
From Ugoosk kone
For my safety and security of my future I am making this proposal to you for our mutual benefit. This however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour it against your will. I am Ugoosk kone,The only Son of my late parents Mr.and Mrs. Micheal kone My father was a highly reputable business magnet-(a cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously during one of his business trips abroad on the 12th. December 2004. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle who travelled with him at that time. But
God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my father took me so special. Before his death, he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of Ten million, Five hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$10.500,000) And 110 KG of Gold Dust left in a two trunk boxes deposited in a security company in Europe which he declared to the company simply as containing family valuable treasure for security
He further told him (the secretary)that he deposited the consignmnent with my name as the next of kin, and finally told him to tell me where to find the documents of the deposit which he said was in possession of his lawyer in sealed documents held by him and asked me to collect it from him and all the necessary documents to this fund. Now I want a trust worthy person who can help me clear
the consignment from the security company and provide an account overseas where I can transfer this funds.This is because I have suffered a lot of set
backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.I am in a sincere desire of
your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly take me as your own and help me.
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. Can you manage the money very well?
Please, Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible so that i can forward the documents to you after we have agreed on the conditions for your
assistance. My life is not safe here and i need to be out of here as soon as possible because now that my father is dead and with me only child, my uncles will be seeking to kill me so that they can have all my fathers properties. i really don't want to struggle anything with them in terms of properties but my presence will still be disturbing them. Thank God they are not aware of this fund in europe hence, I want to leave here as soon as you help me to have the consignment cleared from the security company in europe and lodge it into a a safe account in your stable country and then send me some amount to enable me prepare to meet you. Without your help, i will find it difficult to travel and clear it myself alone with my little or no experience.
I am waiting for your urgent reply with your contact phone number so that i can give you the contact of the security company for you to contact them on my behalf and in due course I will give you the secret code for opening the consignment when you are ready to go on my behalf.
Thank you so much.
My sincere regards
