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.

I am Barrister William Drallo, a Solicitor and the Personal Attorney to Mr.T .XXXX,a national of your country, who used to work with shell Development Company in Lome-Togo. On the 25th of July 2000, my client, his wife and their two Children died in the Air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their plane for a world cruise,meanwhile I would refer you to these Websites for further information About more informations that lead to the death of my beloved client.
All occupants of the plane unfortunately lost their lives.Since then,I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, so to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence I contacted you.
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money that belong to my client before they get confiscated or declared as unserviceable by the Security Company where this huge deposit were lodged. Particularly, the Security Company where the deceased had an account valued at about $10.5 Million Dollars, has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within
the next ten official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3years now. Therefore, I have decided to seek your consent to present you as the"Next Kin" of the deceased since you are from the same Country and bear the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $10.5 Million Dollars, can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 55% to me and 40% to you, while 5% will be mapped out for any expenses during the process or Tax as your Government may require, I have every information that can be used to back up any claim we may make.
All I require is your honest Cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me strictly via this email email@example.com
,,,,,,,,,to enable us discuss further.
