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 href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/859479.stm">http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/859479.stm</A></DIV> <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> 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> 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> I wait your urgent response. </DIV> <DIV><BR>Regards,</DIV> <DIV><BR>Francis Annan.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV><p>  <hr size=1>Be a better friend, newshound, and know-it-all with Yahoo!
