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: Hello Dear
have a new email address!
You can now email me at: email@example.com
My name is Mrs.Zeinab Momood, the
wife of Mr.Usman momood, from
Nigeria who was doing business with
you. I have been looking for your email
and contact address for almost
3 months now since my husband died. He told me that a consignment
you through a diplomatic means also that
the consignment contained $20M but since then, you have not emailed
let him know what actually went wrong.
It was just yesterday that I received a call
from the diplomat carrying the
consignment and he told me that he is
still in London because he was robbed
of his money and all his belongings
including your address and phone
contacts but that the consignment is
safe at the diplomatic quarters.
I don't know you before but I guess you
are the right person I am writing. I
want you to email me now your full details (Name and address, telephone
fax numbers) so that I can forward it to the diplomat in London
leave immediately because he needs your details to call you first
That is the only thing holding him there. He said he has been able
get money from someone to ship the consignment and he is joining
next flight to deliver
the consignment to you. Please be
informed that he is not aware of the
content of the consignment. We need this
to be done immediately so that you can
send us our share and take yours because my family is going through
time since I lost my husband. Email me the details now and the diplomat
will call you from
London to inform you of his movement.
Waiting for your email now.
Mrs. Zeinab Momood
