got this email today....

My greetings to you,

This letter must come to you as a big surprise,
but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great
friends and business partners. My name is Edward Owuso, the present
branch Manager of a bank here in Ghana. last December I was asked to
take position of a Manager of our branch in Kumasi, As I resumed duty,
I discovered an account with total sum of $12,500,000 million that has
not been operated on for the past 4 years. From my investigation, I
found out that this account belongs to one Late Mr. ANDREAS SCHRANNER
a German great industrialist and a resident of Munich, who
unfortunately lost his life along with his entire famillies in the
plane crash of CONCORDE AIRLINE [Flight AF4590 ] which crashed on 25TH
JULY, 2000.
You shall read more news about the crash on visiting this
site, which I got during my investigation;


The account is an escrow fixed deposit
account, and no other person in my bank knows about the death of Mr.
ANDREAS SCHRANNER. meaning that no one is aware of the account. I
cannot directly take out this money without the help of a foreigner and
that is why I am contacting you for an assistance to claim the funds
and share it with me. As the Manager of my bank branch, 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
concerning the account, which I shall give you.

The transaction will
be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of law. If you accept to work with me, I want you to state
how you wish us to share the funds in percentage.

i got an email from a russian scammer. she was telling me of how much the russian man not love like western european, and how much she want to make me steam.

i sent her a picture of a fat bloke in a nappy, and a picture of a caravan with a toothless granny sat outside it.

she still wrote to me. i told her that i made money by visiting the sperm bank, and that my record was 16 in one day.

it was only when one of my friends pointed out that there were propably dangerous russian mafia types behind the scam, and that i would end up dead in a ditch in latvia that i stopped writing back.
