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.

Mr. Williams Francise, a staff in the accounts
management section of a well-known bank here in the
Ghana. One of our accounts with holding balance of
£15,000,000(Fifteen Million British Pounds) has been
dormant and has not been operated for the past 5
From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of
this account a foreigner who died in August 2001 and
since then nobody has done anything as regards the
claiming of this money because he has no family
members who are aware of the existence of neither the
account nor the funds. Also Information from the
National Immigration states that he was also single on
entry into our great nation.
I have secretly discussed this matter with some of the
bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable
foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose to do
business with you, standing in as the next of kin of
these funds from the deceased and funds released to
you after due processes have been followed.

as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from
drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal
act. On your interest, let me hear from you.Through
