Attention: Good Friend,

I am Mr. Ed Grondel the chief accountant of First National Bank of South Africa (FNB) a division of FirstRand Bank limited South Africa I am making this contact with you based on the need for an individual/company who is willing to assist me with a solution to a money transfer.
First and foremost, I apologized using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to Confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium. In unfolding this proposal, I want to count on you, as a respected and honest person to handle this transaction with sincerity, trust and confidentiality. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the nature of this transaction.

There is an account opened in this bank in 1997 and till 2003 nobody has operated on this account again after going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is MR.SHEU YUANG DONG, a foreigner, and a miner at Kruger Gold Company, a Geologist by profession and he died since February 16, 1998. No other person knows this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the money involved is USD25,000,000.00 (Twenty Five Million United Dollars Only).
I want us to first transfer USD10 Million from this money into your safe overseas account before the rest and this is to avoid any breach of law to both Countries.

Please View this website: This site is the Taiwan air crash in which MR.SHEU YUANG DONG was found dead in February 16, 1998. I am seeking your assistance as a foreigner, since as civil servant i am not allowed to operate foreign accounts. Should you be willing to assist in this transaction your share as compensation will be USD10,000,000.00 (40%), while I will receive USD15,000.000.00 (60%).
The business is completely safe and secure, provided you treat it with utmost confidentiality. It does not matter also your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction.I have reposed confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.

Kindly notify me by sending your secured mobile phone and fax numbers for further details upon your acceptance of this proposal.

Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.


Mr.ED Grondel.

Keep Your Dreams Alive*

I am “approaching half a Century” (ahem) of life, and never before have so many of the people I’ve talked to told me they are:
* Looking for work – any work.lapel pin flag
* Recently laid off.
* Their company shut down/is shutting down.
* Afraid they’re going to be “downsized”.
* Working 2 jobs but still can’t float the boat.
* Going back to school.
And, the one I take special note of..
* Unemployed so long, “I’ve forgotten what having a job feels like.”
Oh, yes! I’ve felt in my business. You betcha. People are changing their money habits, I guarantee.

I have weathered a crisis or two in my life – some of them ‘global’. My first “real job” was pumping gas during Jimmy Carter’s Gas Crisis, and trying to keep odd numbered license plates from sneaking into line on “even days” (That should date me pretty well). Many readers are too young to 1970s_gas_rationingremember that; but it ushered in the Honda, Toyota and Datsuns (now “Nissan”) to America. Something we take totally for granted now..

And I’ve experienced some deep personal “earthquakes” too – which I’ll keep to myself – and which I sincerely hope you never have to experience.

I would like to say to you, Dear Reader, in these difficult and frightening times– they will pass. Whatever your personal hardship. Today and every day, we need to keep our plans and dreams alive – and we must not allow ourselves to be drowned by nightmares, negativity, fear, and despair.

We are living art, created to hang on, stand up, forbear, continue and encourage others.” – Maya Angelou

I would like to say to you, if you need help — ask for it. If you have help to give — give of it freely. Asking for help isn’t easy or fun. Do it anyway.

For those of you surrounded by blackness and hopelessness, please seek professional help! I sincerely hope you’ll get help because you deserve it. No matter what anyone says, including yourself. You are of infinite value and significance — and deserve peace, happiness and meaning in your life.
[Family members — Please get immediate professional help if a loved one talks of suicide, has excessive guilt or anxiety, or starts to abuse drugs or alcohol.]

I agree with our new President – it is time to “roll up our sleeves and get busy” contributing to our Country’s “life’s blood”. And I believe that means helping your neighbor.. even if you think he should be helping you. I would like to say to you, lead by example.

If you just want to die.. think it would be “easier” (or if you know someone who is acting this way) don’t dismiss what I am going to suggest next because you think I “don’t know “..
1) it will pass (and, yeah, it can take a long time) and,
2) please – pretty please with sugar on top – click here, and then click some of links you find there.
