GHANA.

PLEASE HELP MY FAMILY


ATTN: Sir
,
With due respect, trust and humility, I write to you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. My message could be strange but real if you pay attention to it. I find your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet for a reliable and capable foreign partner. I am writing to you on behalf of Kenga’s family to enquire if you can assist my humble family undertakes some capital investment in your country.

I am Grace kenga,the only daughter of Late Mr.Robert Kenga, who was the chairman of the Farmer’s co-operation in Zimbabwe. My Father was among the few black farmers that were murdered in cold blood by President Robert Mugabe Administration during the land dispute that just happened in Zimbabwe.

Prior to my father's untimely death, he had seen the rising hostilities of President Robert Mugabe's government in my country Zimbabwe. It may interest you to know that during my Father's regime as the Chairman of the farmer’s co-operation, he realized some reasonable amount of money from various deals that he successfully executed. As a result of his death and uncontrollable crisis in my Zimbabwe, I together with my family members decided to seek asylum in Ghana where my Father had deposited US$35.5 Million (Thirty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars).

This money was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland. We now want to use this money for investment in your country since we do not have anybody to assist us. Following the above, I am asking for your urgent assistance to transfer this money out of Ghana using very confidential and reliable means.

However, this money was safely kept in a Security Company here in Accra Ghana before his death under disguise as precious items and nobody has any slight knowledge of what is inside the box deposited with the Security Company. In other words, there is no risk involved and so do not hesitate to ask questions where necessary. All the documents covering the deposition of the money with the Security Company are intact with me.

If you consider yourself honest, trustworthy and willing to assist us, please respond by this email address (kenga.grace1@hotmail.com) or through the above phone number to enable me provide you with detailed information on how the transfer of this fund can be made to your account upon acceptance. My family members have agreed to offer you 20% of the total amount for the assistance and efforts you are going to put for the smooth and successfully transfer of the fund, also 5% will be for any incurred expenses both locally and International.

I look forward hearing from you.

Best regard.

Grace Kenga.

I have a Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera I got a new memory card it is a sandisk SDHC 8 GB but I am getting a memory card error message.... What can I do?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Please note that your particular model camera can only use up to 2GB standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problemlisted here.

Hi, I am not able to open my sandisk 2 gb memory card though my pc is detecting it and asking me for format but also it is not formatting


I think the card is locked, look at the card closely either on the front or the back of it there will be a small black square that can be moved either up or down or left or right. Slide that square over to unlock the disk and you should be able to use it now.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some positive feedback.

Yes it sounds like the disk is defective and I have seen these bad so its definitely the most likely possibility. Sounds like the switch itself to unlock it is bad. Good luck and thanks for using fixya, please take a moment to rate my solution I hope you fin it fixya appropriate.
