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.

Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am Wooster David, a private Mortgage broker of Daniel Marshall Associates, and I happen to have managed a particular account for a Resident Foreigner.
Here in the United Kingdom, who died In-state, leaving in our care a lump sum amount in a domiciliary Investment Account. For some reason this client does not have an easily identifiable next of Kin and I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients relatives; immediate and extended, this has proved unsuccessful, hence, I am contacting you.
I need your assistance in securing the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House here in the United Kingdom. The Finance House has already issued a Government Mandatory formal notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the account confiscated and this should expire within a month.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives for over two years and convinced that no one is coming up and having satisfied the mandatory legal requirement of Beneficiary/next of kin notification.
I now seek a Reliable and Trustworthy person, with your consent and perfect understanding, to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account, can be paid into an account to be provided by you (preferably) outside the United Kingdom Financial Institutions or its Isles), as the perceived Next Of Kin Legally and Otherwise.
All I require is your honest cooperation and confidence in me; which I know would not come easy. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate background that will protect you from any breach of the law. I would advise that you give this positive consideration and get back to me soon. I'll be flexible and considerate in the percentage share that will be given to you for your assistance.
Upon receipt of your response I'll furnish you with further details.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
