<DIV>From Mr. Francis Annan</DIV>  <DIV><BR>Greetings to you,</DIV>  <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>  <DIV>This 
letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I<BR>believe it is only a day that people meet and 
become<BR>great friends/ business partners. I am Francis Annan,<BR>current Head of Corporate 
Affairs Department with a<BR>reputable bank here in Ghana. I write you this<BR>proposal in good 
faith, believing that I can trust you<BR>with the information I am about to reveal to you. </DIV>  
<DIV>I have an urgent and very confidential business<BR>proposition for you. On June 5th, 2000, a 
German<BR>business tycoon Mr. Andreas Schranner made a (Fixed<BR>deposit) for 60 calendar months, 
valued at<BR>US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million Five hundred Thousand<BR>United States Dollars only) 
in my bank and I happen to be his<BR>account officer before I was moved to my present<BR>position 
recently. The maturity date for this deposit<BR>contract was last 3rd of April 2005. Before this 
date,</DIV> 
 <DIV>I have tried my possible best to locate a Next of Kin<BR>to late Mr. Schranner, but all 
efforts proved<BR>abortive, because all his family, including his Son<BR>In-Law and children died 
in the plane crash of<BR>Concorde Air France Flight AF4590 which took place on<BR>25th July 2000, 
some months after he did the deposit<BR>in my bank. You can read more story about the 
plane<BR>crash by visiting this website;<BR><A

  <DIV>With the recent change of government in my country and<BR>with their efforts to support the 
United Nations in<BR>checkmating terrorism aid in Ghana. By end of April<BR>this year, the 
Government will pass a new Financial<BR>Control Law which will give the Government authority<BR>to 
interrogate account owners of above $5 million<BR>Dollars to explain the source of the funds, 
making<BR>sure it is not for terrorism support. If I do not move<BR>this
 money out of the country immediately, by April<BR>the Government will definitely confiscate the 
money,<BR>because my bank cannot provide the account owner to<BR>explain the source of the money 
since he is late. </DIV>  <DIV>I decided to utilize this life time opportunity,<BR>instead of 
Government confiscating the fund,<BR>&nbsp;but I cannot directly claim the money without the help 
of a<BR>foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an<BR>assistance. As the Account Officer 
to late Mr.<BR>Schranner, coupled with my present position and status<BR>in the bank, I have the 
power to influence the release<BR>of the funds to any foreigner that comes up as the<BR>Next of Kin 
to the account, with the correct<BR>information concerning the account, which I shall give<BR>you. 
I am having the secret Code for the account,<BR>which only the account owner or his Next of Kin 
can<BR>know. I shall supply all necessary information we need<BR>for the claim and there is 
practically no
 risk<BR>involved, the transaction will be executed under a<BR>legitimate arrangement that will 
protect you from any<BR>breach of law, beside Ghana is porous and anything<BR>goes. </DIV>  <DIV>If 
you accept to work with me, I want you to state how<BR>you wish us to share the funds in 
percentage, so that<BR>both parties will be satisfied. I shall explain to you<BR>in details how we 
shall handle the transaction once I<BR>receive your response. Thanking you in advance and 
may<BR>God bless you. Please, treat with utmost confidentiality.<BR>&nbsp;I shall send you copy of 
the deposit slip issued to <BR>Mr. Schranner when the deposit was made for your perusal.</DIV>  
<DIV><BR>&nbsp;I wait your urgent response. </DIV>  <DIV><BR>Regards,</DIV>  <DIV><BR>Francis 
Annan.</DIV>  <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>  <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>  <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>  <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV><p>&#32;

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
