Wow, here's the solution to all problems, we'll finally be able to afford a dedicated server. Free beer for all forum members, and a monthly salary for the forum team! What do you think about this offer I just received:
Compliments of the season. It is indeed my pleasure to write to you this letter, which I believe will be a suprise, as we are both complete strangers. I am Mr Abaku Kwame, the manager, credit and foreign bills of Arab bank Benin. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank with account number 14-255-2004/AAB/B who perished in Egyptian Air Flight with the whole passengers aboard on 31st oct 1998.
Since the demise of this our customer,I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of USD$4.7m[Four million seven hundred thousand united states dollars] which has been with my branch for a very long time.
On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin as no one has come up as his relation. And the country law here does not allow such money to stay more than Five years, for the money will be recalled to the government treasury as unclaimed after this period. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send to you the application, bank's contact and the next step to take. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer can be finalized within five banking days, after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased.
When you receive this letter. Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your decision.Including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication.
I will be very happy if you can treat this business with the utmost secrecy it demands because of my position in this bank.
Hoping for a very successful business relationship with you.
Mr Abaku Kwame.
