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: URGENT BUSINESS TRANSATION AND CONFIDENCIAL
FROM THE DESK OF MR HAJI.
AUDITIN AND ACCOUNTIN MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A)
I am the AUDITIING AND ACCOUNTING MANAGER BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in
Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of
USD$18m(eightheen million united states dollars).in an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customer(MR.ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany)who
died along with his entire family in a plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unlessn
some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that
all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the
plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business
proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation
to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is
coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as
unclaimed bill.The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such
money remained unclaimed after fours years, the money will be transfered
into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by
the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as
next of kin to a foreigner.I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as
a respect to the provision of a foriegn account , 10% will be set aside for
expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me Thereafter, I
will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage
indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you
arranged,you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the
deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private
telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location
where in the money will be
remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the
text of application .
I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is hitch-free and
that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements
have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this
letter.Trusting to hear from you immediately.
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....
