Dead German leaves money in bank, which will be given to lucky Gerard McGarry !

Dr Gerard McGarry, owner of the world's smallest balls, recently received an email from a man called George Mensah, the Head of Corporate Affairs Department with a reputable bank in Ghana.

Mr Mensah said "On June 5th, 2000, a German business tycoon Mr. Andreas Schranner made a (Fixed deposit) for 60 calendar months, valued at US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his account officer".

"Mr. Schranner and all his family, including his Son In-Law and children died in the plane crash of Concorde Air France Flight AF4590 which took place on 25th July 2000, some months after he did the deposit in my bank.

The con artist then added "If I do not move this money out of the country immediately, by October the Government will definitely confiscate the money. 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. I am therefore contacting you a complete stranger, to be his next of kin".

Mr McGarry has already won a big screen TV, in a internet prize draw he didnt enter and is eagerly awaiting it's delivery by Fedex. He said "I have been truly blessed by God and I am now going to burn down my house, as I can buy another one, with my $12 million.

His wife Liza said "Right I'm calling the doctor, he needs to be sectioned. He's kicked the kids out in a previous story, burnt my wedding photos, he's now planning to burn down the house for a fictional, large amount of money. Is there no end to his fuck-wizzardry?"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
