Quick Tip + Some Friday Fun

Did you recently get a new Windows 7 computer? If so, I highly recommend taking the actions described here, How To Restore The Menu Bar In Vista And Windows 7 and here, Windows 7 Owners, You Want To Do This… right way.. if you haven’t already. They are quick, and they are easy, and you’ll be glad you did them.

And here’s one for everyone: use B3773r P4$$w0rd$.

With that out of the way.. how about some fun for your Friday? Sound good?

I suggest, that if you look at this, and think it won’t interest you, that you go ahead and watch it anyway. I have the funny feeling you will be glad you did. And if not, you can tell me so.

The weekend’s almost here.. yay!

Success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold

subject: CAN YOU?

I am Greg Limas Principal Assurance manager for the BARCLAYS BANK LONDON UK . I am getting in touch
with you regarding the estate of Mr Alfred Brown and an investment placed under our banks management
7 years.I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the
integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.
In 2000, the subject matter; came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking
division. He informed us that he had a financialportfolio of $8.3million United States dollars, which he wished
to have us invest on his behalf.Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and
made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point
at over 10 million United States Dollars. In mid 2002, he instructed that the principal sum ($29M) be liquidated
because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Hong Kong and China .
We got in touch with a specialist bank in London ,  who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make
cash available to Alfred. However they got in touch with us last year that this money has not been claimed.
On further inquiries we found out that Alfred was involved in an accident in Mainland China , which means
he died intestate. He has no next of kin and this is the reason I am writing you..
What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these
funds. My bank will contact you informing you that money has been willed to you. On verification, which will
be the details I make available to my bank, my bank will instruct the bank to make payments to you.
You do not have to have known him. I know this might be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this.
For all your troubles I propose that we split the money in half.
In the banking circle this happens every time.. Nobody is getting hurt; this is a lifetime opportunity for us.
I hold the KEY to these funds, and as a British National we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned
daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by the above email address, I will give you my
mobile telephone number when i get your reply. Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and
children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to the consequences, but I know within me
that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold.
This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can
be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this.  Please get back to me immediately.
Yours Faithfully,
Greg Limas
