official documents, including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank. Mr.
Andreas schranner, his wife Maria , their daughter Andréa eich, her
husband Christian, and their children katharina and maximilian all died in
the air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their plan for a

FBI Alert Notice!

This came to me from a233z@live.ca, so I thought I’d post it as a blog. No, I don’t think it’s real. I think it’s funny, and I’ll post any others I get that I find humorous. If you feel like prank emailing them or putting them on some kind of weird mailing lists, go ahead.
