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.

contacted you. I have send you this letter to assist in repatriating the
money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared
unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit were lodged, particularly
the Standard Bank of South Africa, where the deceased had an account valued
at about US$11,000,000.00 (Eleven Million, United States Dollars only) has
issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account
confiscated though there are persons of same nationals here in South Africa
non of them is a direct relative with the deceased and no one had an idea of
this deposit. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for
over a period of time, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin
to the deceased since there is nobody to claim this money and also the bank
is willing to transfer this money to anybody that I will present as the
relation to the deceased. The proceeds of this account va
lued at US$11,000,000.00 (Eleven Million, United States Dollars only) can be
transferred into your designated account and I shall proceed down to your
country on confirmation of the fund in your account to discuss with you on
how to invest the money, meanwhile you will be required here (South Africa)
to endorse your signature on some of the documents as the next of kin to the
deceased once the fund has been approved by the bank.
I shall revalidate and notarize all the necessary legal documents that can
be used to back up any claim that the bank may need, this is a risk free
transaction because the banker who is in charge of account section is
involved. At the conclusion of the business, you will be given 25% of the
total sum (US$2,750,000.00). 70% (US$7,700,000.00) will be for me, while 5%
(US$550,000.00) will be set aside for expenses that we might incur during
the course of this transaction. I guarantee you this will be executed under
a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Kindly call me on my phone number before sending any fax message for
security reasons. I need your strong assurance and confidentiality.
God bless us.
HON. VUSI WILLIAMS.
