Who on fanda has had one of these letters ,,,,I am a banker who have an undeniable desire and passion for helping the poor, orphans, the downtrodden, the less privilege and homeless children, all my life I have served humanity and mankind, trying my best to elevate the suffering of the masses but the challenges are just too enormous because my country is in Africa, a third world country but I kept on striving and hoping for the God, praying day in and out the seek a way out because right now I have 79 orphans in my orphanage home and no help from anywhere and just as I though all hope has lost God in his own mightiness, in his own magnanimity, abundance of wisdom and infinite mercy brought fort an opportunity for us to make wealth and expand our charitable projects and propagating his gospel and kingdom because right now there is a total sum of £9.8 Million Pounds momentarily abandoned by the late investor, Dr. Jonathan C. O'Neill who I presumed to be your relative because of the similarities in your surnames. What needs to be done now is for me to immediately insert your name from our bank database/system into his file and have you listed as the heir and successor to his estate, and once that is successfully done it will grant me the serenity to activate the account, send to you our inheritance claim form where you are to designate/indicate your bank account co~ordinates or information where you want the money transfer into, and then I will take the initiative to seek or secure permission from the bank management board using my influence and position, as the bank current associate professor of accounting and foreign investor's account supervisor and then effect the transfer of the funds to your designated bank account in line with our bank inheritance claim lay down rule/policy. I will call you for us to discuss the details, the modalities of this project and also my interest, yes, my interest because I will need a guarantee from you that I will not be betrayed after I have gone through all the process, risk my job to have the money transfer to you, I will need an assurance from you that I will get my share of the money in peace because I need it to be able to continue helping the poor and orphans. Please send to me your most direct telephone number or call me. Remain Bless.

Jacob sky a song I wrote, about the way we all feel, when we lose our fathers, especially near xmas, I wrote this song and recorded it in Nottingham, in 5 hours, my great friend jon coales, the best guitar player, England, has ever produced arranged and produced, Jacob sky. and I cant wait to work, with him again as soon as I get, back home to uk ---in reply to lots and lots of questions, from our fellow musicians on fandalism ,as to why I record a demo song, on my samsong phone, I am here on an island, one of 3052 trying to build a school, and 2 houses for autistic children, and we sometimes have to go without water for days --the power is off and on, all through the day, every day as you would expect, in a third world country. we have no recording studio here, where I am so hence, I use the phone I am not frightened, to let people hear me on a cheap demo, because in a studio I sound the same, as, everyone else does,, with all the special effects,.we have available. today, we can make a monkey, sound good. as my great friend jim jenkin the brilliant all round, musician from new jersey, with albert Desoto, and andy gay, and indeed bob clements, have all helped me, in their own special way, in sprinkling their magic, over 3 rough demos I sent jim, which helped me out, big time, so isolated down here where I am, I thank each and every, one of you, from the bottom, of my irish heart,, and hope ye are in heaven,,2 hours before, the devil knows ye are dead -thank you so much for listening to Jacob sky ----john o neill --tnsboy

AS ALL SONGWRITERS WILL KNOW, moods are the things, you need to capture when writing, your lyrics and melody,, well this song if you are over,, say 40 yrs old, then the mid chorus and full chorus, will hook you in, to another time in your life, sad or happy. I wrote it lyrics and music, on a mountain high above, bais city at 2-45 am in the morning, the trusted galaxy phone was out, and tied to a tree, with a lace, and before the sunrise broke, im all alone, with the universe, as my audience and at total peace, with my self. --as I sing --theres a man on a mountain is cryin--thank you for listening to this demo --john o neill
