<BR><BR>From Mr. David Adom<BR>&nbsp;<BR>Greetings to you, <BR>&nbsp;<BR>Th=
is letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a da=
y that people meet and become great friends/ business partners. I am David =
Adom, currently Head of Corporate Affairs Department with a reputable bank =
here in Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I ca=
n trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. <BR>&nbsp;<BR=
I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On Ju=
ne 5th, 2000, a German business tycoon Mr. Andreas Schranner made a (Fixed =
deposit) for 60 calendar months, valued at US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million=
 Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his acco=
unt officer before I was moved to my present position recently. <BR>&nbsp;<=
BR>The maturity date for this deposit contract was last 3rd of April 2005. =
Before this date, I have tried my possible best to locate a Next of Kin to =
late Mr. Schranner, but all efforts proved abortive, because all his family=
, including his Son In-Law and children died in the plane crash of Concorde=
 Air France Flight AF4590 which took place on 25th July 2000, some months a=
fter he did the deposit in my bank. You can read more story about the plane=
 crash by visiting this website;
tm With the recent change of government in my country and with their effort=
s to support the United Nations in checkmating terrorism aid in Ghana. <BR>=
<BR>By end of October this year, the Government will pass a new Financial C=
ontrol Law which will give the Government authority to interrogate account =
owners of above $5 million Dollars to explain the source of the funds, maki=
ng sure it is not for terrorism support. If I do not move this money out of=
 the country immediately, by December the Government will definitely confis=
cate the money, because my bank cannot provide the account owner to explain=
 the source of the money since he is late. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>I decided to utili=
ze this life time opportunity, instead of Government confiscating the, but =
I cannot directly claim the money without the help of a foreigner and that =
is why I am contacting you for an assistance. As the Account Officer to lat=
e Mr. Schranner, coupled with my present position and status in the bank, I=
 have the power to influence the release of the funds to any foreigner that=
 comes up as the Next of Kin to the account, with the correct information c=
oncerning the account, which I shall give you. I am having the secret Code =
for the account, which only the account owner or his Next of Kin can know. =
<BR>&nbsp;<BR>I shall supply all necessary information we need for the clai=
m and there is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be execut=
ed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of =
law, beside Ghana is porous and anything goes. If you accept to work with m=
e, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so=
 that both parties will be satisfied. I shall explain to you in details how=
 we shall handle the transaction once I receive your response. Thanking you=
 in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with utmost confidentialit=
y. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>I shall send you copy of the deposit slip issued to Mr. Sc=
hranner when the deposit was made for your perusal. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>I wait yo=
ur urgent response. <BR>Regards, <BR>David Adom. <BR><br /><hr />Express yo=
