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: Dear Blessed One,
Dear Blessed One,
Greetings to you blessed one!. As you read through my message, I do not
want you to feel pity or sorry for me, for I believe someday, somehow, we
will all surely die, this is about mine, and a last wish.
My name is VILLA JOHNSON a Citizen of South Africa ,but presently based in Britain
for my medical attention, I am a 53 years old woman, I am diagnosed of
Cancer of the Larynx and the, medical science can not do
anything for me at this stage. I believe in miracles because I believe in
GOD, however I prefer to pass on at this stage since I am bed ridden and
in constant pain.
Before this happened my business and concern for making money was all I
lived for, I never really cared about other values in life. But since my
present situation, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families.
I have been helping orphans in orphanage/motherless homes. I have once
donated some money to orphans in war ravaged Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan and
some East European Countries.
Having known my condition I decided to entrust my last funds I have
deposited in Europe( USD 15.7 mILLION) to either a philanthropic or
devoted individual that will use his judgement to distribute the money to
charity organizations and feel free to reimburse yourself when you have
the money, for any cost you incur during the process of collecting and
distributing the money to charity organizations. I have left the hospital
and presently at home, I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors
have told me that I have only few months to live.
It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations,
because I don't have any child and my relatives and friends has plundered
so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of
entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in
the name of God to help me collect the deposit and distribute it amongst
charity organizations. Since my health is retrogressing by the minute, you
will have to send your; POSTAL ADDRESS, CONTACT PHONE NUMBER AND FAX and a
little details about yourself, because I got your address from the
Internet after a thorough search.
With the information, I will make arrangement to prepare the authorization
through an Attorney for you to get possession of the Deposit. I will give
you the name and contact of the Deposit company where the money is lodged
in Europe thereafter, so you can claim the funds. Until I hear from you, I
pray that this letter bring you and your family good tidings. Please reply
as soon possible through my email addres, email@example.com
Looking forward to hearing from you soonest.
