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.

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be
treated as such. I am Barrister Wale Ogunmola,a solicitor at law.
I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr Randolf
Blake , hereinafter referred to as 'my client' who worked as an
independent oil magnate in my country and who died in a car crash
with his immediate family on the 4th of oct,2001. Since the death of
my client in oct,2001, I have written several letters to the embassy
with an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be
claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all
such efforts have been to no avail.
Moreso,I have received official letters in the last few weeks
suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned
personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my
client deposited the sum of 3.8 million U.S.D. On this note i
decided to search for a credible person , I was urged to contact
you, that I may,with your consent, present you to the "trustee" bank
as my late client's surviving family member so as to enable you put
up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client.
I propose that 35% of the net sum will accrue to you at the
conclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incur further expenses.
Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you
need, first to contact me via signifying your interest and as soon
as I obtain your confidence,I will immediately appraise you with the
complete details as well as fax you the documents, with which you
are to proceed and i shall direct on how to put up an application to

will forward to you in order to bind us in this transaction. Upon
the reciept of your reply,I will send you by fax or E-mail the next
step to take.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this
proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears
as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of
this transfer. Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality
