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: REQUEST !
Dear Friend, I am Witold .I. Owusu from the Democratic Republic of
Sierra leone,i am 20 years of age.I got your contact from the office of
the Chamber of commerce and Tourism in Accra-Ghana as I was going
through some directories in my search for a foreign partner to assist
me. My father was a Royal King,King Ibure Owusu IX of "Mendes Kingdom"in
Sierra Leone,and also the chairman of Sierra Leonian Diamond Mining
Corporation,he was killed by rebels.I was in school when rebels
attacked him. My mother,I and my little brother are presently in UN
refugee Camp in Accra, Ghana. Before the death of my father,due to the
condition of his health then,he disclosed to my mother and i where he
deposited some consignment in a neighboring country in West Africa. And
the document regarding this consignment he hand them over to me and told
me that should death come on him i will have to look for a foreigner who
will help us to make the claim from the company. He kept these
consignments under a Security Company concealed in a trunk box as
diamond in their vault is $55 million (USA).But only declared to the
company as diamond and due to previous transaction of depositing
diamonds in the past by my late father,it was accepted without any check
up.The Security Company has accepted to release the consignment
factually to me if I come with my father's foreign partner.I am seeking
your assistance because my father has declared the record with the
company stating that his foreign partner shall be the authorized person
to make claim because of his position in government(as King in my
community)but no name was given by my father as his foreign
partner. To this effect,I request to make the beneficiary of this
consignment in your name as foreign partner to my late father to claim
the consignment. For your assistance,i will offer you 20% of the total
money.Room is open for negociations.This is a risk free transaction as
my father deposited this valuable as a personal belonging to him and is
foreign partner. In this situation every process to completely move
this valuable may not exceed (5) working days,if your co-operation to
assist is sort.I will go back to your country with you to invest our
share of the money in a busniess you may advice me,and as well complete
my educational studies there,but my mother and little brother will stay
behind at last for now.We shall be very grateful to hear from you, all
documents concerning this transaction are intact with me, I decided
to trust you because I am at a crossroad and have this feeling we could
work this out for our mutual benefit. Regards, Witold Owusu.

I am a king in my country also.
I already have much more money than you offer.
If you send me another scam letter i will have you concealed in a trunk box.
