I came to know you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence.

THE PROPOSITION : A foreigner, Late Engr. John Creek (Snr.), an oil merchant with the federal government of Nigeria During the regime of the late General Sanni Abacha, until his death sometime ago in Kenya Air Bus ( A310-300)Flight KQ430. Banked with us at Union Bank of Nigeria PLC, Lagos and had a closing balance as at the end of September, 2000 worth S$30,000,000.00 ( Thirty Million United State Dollars), the bank now expect a next of kin as beneficiary. Valuable efforts have been made by the Union Bank of Nigeria to get in touch with any of the Creek's family or relatives but to no success. It is because of the perceived possibility of not being able to locate any of Engr. John Creek (Snr.)'s next of kin (He had no wife or children that is known to us).

The management under the influence of our Chairman and members of the Board of Directors, that arrange has been made for the fund to be declared unclaimed and subsequently be donated to the trust fund for arms and ammunitions to further enhanced the course of war in Africa and the world in general. In order to avert this negative development, some of my trusted colleagues and I now seek your permission to have you stand as next of kin to late Engr. John Creek (Snr.) so that the fund US$30 million will be released and paid to into your account as the beneficiary's next of kin.

All documents and proves to enable you get this fund will be carefully
worked out. We have secured from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries, and more so we are assuring you that the business is 100% risk free involvement.

The sharing of the funds will be based According to agreement within both parties. As soon as we receive an acknowledgement of receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business proposal, we would furnish you with the necessary modalities and disbursement ratio to suit both parties without any conflict. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust we have bestowed in you.

I anticipate your urgent response. You can send me your reply preferably through my private fax number above for maximum security.

Oh Rug Doctor (aka Chuck E. Cheese... remember the code?)! I am so overjoyed now, I have what we Americans call "wiggly toes." More on that later.

Hello to you again, my favorite brother, I AM COMING TO NIGERIA, AND AM
GETTING READY TO BOOK MY TICKET!

Will you be there to greet me at the airport? Is it okay for me to bring the money for the contribution? Is Nigeria safe for me? I know that I need to make a contribution first, but you don't tell me the modalities ever. Please don't get a lawyer involved. I want to come to see you personally since you have shown so much faith in me.

The only city I see for the plane to go is Lagos. Is this where I am to meet you? If so, here is my flight information:

Leaving: Air France, JFK New York - August 23rd, 7 PM
Arriving: Air France, Lagos, Nigeria - August 24th, 3:45 PM, Flight # 852

Will you be at the airport? Let me know if this is correct, because time is critical, and I want to book my airline flight today.

I want to get this great deal for both of us finalized as soon as you permit. The time for building our friendship is done. You are my first
African friend, and I am your first American friend. Now let's talk business Charlie:

1) Again, I call you all the time on the phone number you give me, but it is always busy. What am I to do now? I so very much want to do the honest business, but either you are always on the phone (talking to your girlfriends maybe HA HA HA) or the number isn't working. Please endeavor to give me a good phone number to talk to you.

2) What do you mean you can't take any picture? This is the ONLY WAY I WILL KNOW THAT I AM DOING THE CORRECT THING, WITH THE HONEST PERSON. YOU MUST TAKE THE PICTURE AND SEND TO ME. HOW WILL I EVER KNOW WHO YOU ARE AT THE AIRPORT IN NIGERIA. TAKE THE PICTURE CHARLIE.

3) Please read closely this with both of your eyes: You are my friend, and we must trust each other. PICTURE OF YOU + NO BUSY SIGNAL ON YOUR PHONE = MY TRUST.

4) Once I see a photograph of you and/or can talk to you on the phone, I will do everything you ask me to do for my share of the reward.

PS - What is Africa like? Can I see some giraffes and lions like we see on television here in the good old USA? I can bring extra money to go to a safari, if you will take me - but I don't like to see any monkeys or either big hippopotamuses, because they make me sad.

Attn: happy shoes,

Sorry I was unable to respond to your various mails due to little family
problem that has kept me off town till date.

However I received your voice message dated 19th august and I really
appreciate your willingness towards this transaction.

Please there are thing we need to properly put in order to make everything
work perfectly so therefore I will advice you cancel your flight schedule
for now till you hear from me.

I will mail you on the procedure tomorrow as soon as I resume office

Dr. Rug Doctor,
You are welcome! I was so worried about the situation and am so happy that you – as you say – “were only off town till date.”

I'm feeling like I died and gone to heaven when your first email told me I was the next of kin to the Late Engineer John Creek who had $30 million that is my reward. Then I am waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting (four times).

I am only hoping that you are taking corrective measures for your "little family problem." (Maybe one of your girlfriends who you are always on the phone with is in a family way, eh? HA, HA, HA).

One thing you are learning about me - your American friend - is I am always making the funny jokes. You are my brother.

I HAVE ALREADY BOOKED MY FLIGHT, BUT WILL STILL WAIT FOR THE PROCEDURE and correct modalities for the transaction of our business. I will see you at the airport, and we will be old friends (BUT REMEMBER THAT I WON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WILL LOOK LIKE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO SEND THE PICTURE)

I'm afraid there may be a small problem though: I don't know for sure that I am the next of kin to the Late Engineer John Creek as you say. For one thing, I am not an African like Mr. Creek, and am as white as a polar bear (American animal from Alaska, who is white) in a blizzard (that's a big snowstorm that is also white).

Unless my mother was involved in some serious funny business in Nigeria that even my dad doesn't know about, this may be a mistake. OH WELL, WE CAN JUST PRETEND. I'LL STILL GET THE $30 MILLION THOUGH, RIGHT?

Also, remember to send me the picture (red shirt, blue pants, white shoes),and make plans for the safari.

VERY HAPPY SHOES

Dear: very happy shoes,

Thanks for your mail and also your voice message received 9th of august in which you expressed your willingness to come to y country to finalize the transaction.

Like I initially mentioned in my last mail that we have to follow the normal procedure to enable us have a successful transaction. However we need require the service of an attorney who will have to assist us acquire legal document to back up our claims, as it will be require before the fund is released to you as the next of kin. Presently I have already intimated the attorney who will assist us get the legal document acquired and he has already commence on the he legal document acquired and he has already commence on his duty officially and otherwise.

I will keep you informed as we proceed and necessary documents will be sent you for your proof.

For us to have a perfect and proper documentation, please kindly send me your full name/address, company name/address and your confidential phone fax numbers for easy communication.

I am sorry I can not send you my photograph at this stage for security reason, however due to your to much joke you sound rather a jester. I am a happily married man and do not have a girlfriend cause I am a very good Christian who has god fear.

There is no need to come to Nigeria immediately as we are yet to perfect things properly regarding the documentation but I will let you know when to come for the final payment release order at the APEX BANK who will be responsible for the release to your account through her offshore correspondence account.

Truly as you have pointed out, your financial assistance will be required towards actualizing this transaction as we will have to pay the attorney service charge, also perfecting and obtaining necessary document in your name and opening of account where the fund will be remitted into at first before further transfer to your account in your country. Since you are in full co-operation with me I will keep you informed anywhere you assistance is required.

If you will adhere by my directive and instruction, we will not have any problem or hitch moreover the late beneficiary was from America and not Africa.

I will await the information required to enable us commence immediately.

Regards

Doctor of Rug,

You are correct sir, I am always making jests. I hope you aren't offended my new friend, when I say the things about your girlfriends. As you are a Christian man, I am even more at ease. Say howdy to your wife and kids.

However, I must stress that the photograph of you is the only modality that I must require for business to commence. THIS IS AN ABSOULUTE REQUIREMENT ON MY PART.

What have I done to make you not trust me so? I am all about business and must have the photograph for proof that you are who you say you are.

I am growing weary now with these email. Please commence to send a digital photograph of you with the requirements - heck I don't even care now if you wear the red shirt, blue shoes and white pants - only a photograph will do.

Then I will commence to send all my information. Understand that this is being requested by me for both yours and my protection.

Attn: happy shoes,
I got your mail and I feel you are still not ready for this transaction. For your request, I will have to send you my official identity card for your proof. This I believe will be enough but if you insist, I will send you my photograph. I also have to be sure that you are not trying to put me into trouble for this action taken to divert fund for my personal interest which is against banker ethnic of profession.

I am sorry my scanner is not o.k. for now but I will forward that to you tomorrow as requested.

However if you are really serious, you can forward me your information as required so that we can commence properly.

Note that delay is very dangerous to avoid anyone discovering what I know which might jeopardize this lifetime opportunity. I need to hear from you immediately.

Please be restful that I will most certainly NOT try to put you in "trouble for this action taken to divert fund for your personal interest." I am a "bidness man," and always doing the "bidness." Straight up... Know what I'm sayin?

To proof of my good intentions, check this out... Here's my personal fax number 413-480-2033. Boom!

To ease your troubled mind, please allow me to send photo of me first. Forgive the serious face in the mug shot. I wasn't "jesting" the day this was taken I can assure you... I'd just been collared by "the man" for indecent exposure. That's where I got the nickname "Happy Shoes" cause I was only wearing shoes when "the man" found me in the bushes. Anyways, they be giving me the black shirt for the picture.


“HAPPY SHOES”

So, there you have it. Awaiting your photo with the utmost anticipation. Then let's get down to bidness!

Peace Out,

DEAR Mrs. Rug Doctor,
Thank you for your report. My shoes are not happy today with this dreadful news, I can assure you. I'm hoping his brief illness will be most brief indeed, as we have much business to conduct.

Did your husband share with you our good news? Apparently, I am the heir to the late Mr. Engineer John Creek (may his soul rest in peace), and he left me over $30 million!! Can you believe my good luck? All I have to do to receive this money is to pay something small for lawyers, and then give Mr.Rug Doctor my bank account number, wire transfer information, and some other things to collect my reward. Oh happy day!

I'm going to buy a new car with tinted windows and chrome wheels -- maybe a Trans Am or IROC, and also take my entire family to Graceland -- that's where Elvis Presley lived. Then I will also take a trip to Las Vegas AND GAMBLE SOME OF my money, because LIFE IS TOO SHORT, AND YOU HAVE TO TAKE CHANCES, OKAY??

(Don't tell Mr. Rug Doctor this, but I also want to make a surprise party for him in Nigeria for his helping me all the time. I want to have some clowns that pop out of a big cake, and maybe even a circus with elephants. Do you have the circus in Nigeria?)

YOUR HUSBAND IS CORRECT TO CONGRATULATE ME ON MY ENDURANCE. ONE TIME, I ENTERED A PIE EATING CONTEST AT THE West Virginia state fair and ate 10 whole cherry pies. I can also lift really heavy stuff over my head (like my wife HA, HA, HA. Don't know if Mr. Rug told you, but I always like to make the funny jokes. Life is too short to be all serious and glum all the time.)

Goodbye to you Franca (It's also funny that your name is Franca and your husband's name is Frank. Is that a crazy coincidence or what? It sure is a nutty world sometimes.)

Franca,

I don't know if your husband informed you, but using your real name in correspondence is ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN. PLEASE ENDEAVOR TO ONLY REFER TO YOURSELF AS "MRS. BONEHEAD" -- YOUR NEW SECRET CODE NAME like the one MR. RUG DOCTOR AND I SET UP FOR HIM AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR BUSINESS!

I like the name "Happy Shoes Man" though, so you can keep calling me that for my new CODE name.

My ample wife and I are praying almost daily to our Supreme God Vishnu (may his name always be used reverentially and spoken in high squeaky tones) for Mr. Rug Doctor's complete recovery. What awful diseases he must have contracted to be in the hospital these many days. Please send him my condolences, and blessings for a total recovery.

Now for business: By way of this email, I am introducing myself to your lawyer, The Honorable Mr. Merad Bitrus (ESQ.) Hello Mr. Bitrus. How are you today?

As Mr. Rug Doctor undoubtedly informed you Mr. Bitrus, I am most interested in collecting my inheritance: $30 million from the Late Great Engineer John Creek -- who I am related to somehow. I must insist however, that as I do with Mr. Rug Doctor and Mrs. Bonehead, you
are only to refer to yourself in code names for all future correspondence.

Therefore, let you be called "Egad MeRad!" as your code name in all future communications. Remember to include the exclamation point (!) after your code name, as THIS IS CRITICAL. This will protect any government spies from trying to derail our business.

I am trying just now to contact you on Mr. Rug Doctor's "handy phone" but as usual the line is always busy. I think we better just communicate through your handy email, unless you have a handy fax that I can send to.

I am in a depressed state today because of these reasons: 1) Mr. Rug Doctor is in the hospital 2) I still do not have a photograph of Mr. Rug Doctor that he promised 3)We still have not finalized modalities for the transfer of the $30 million 4) Flatulence.

All of my information will be forthcoming -- bank account number, phone numbers, first 3 pages of my passport, and any funds you require to make the transaction a reality -- but only after I receive a photograph of Mr. Rug Doctor as I have required from the outset. Maybe Mrs. Franca
can take a photo of him at the hospital and send it to me for proof? Also, I must now require a photograph of you, since you are my lawyer.

Thank you for working on my behalf and you can also come to the party I am making for Mr. Rug Doctor in Nigeria where we will have a circus and clowns after I get my damned money.

But remember, YOU TOO MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER THE CODE: YOU MUST NOT RESPOND WITH YOUR REAL NAME, ONLY "EGAD MERAD!" -- with the exclamation point AS I INSISTED IN MY LAST CORRESPONDENCE. (You people sure have some issues following directions... Sheesh) I am waiting with the most hopeful of anticipation for your photograph and that of Mr. Rug Doctor. Then, I will send money for your legal fees and come to Nigeria.

How much money do I need to send you anyway? I only have about $10,000 available right now, but I can get more if I need to.

Have you spoken with Mrs. Bonehead about her husband?

I am so anxious to get this transaction completed that I praying every day for Mr. Rug Doctor's complete recovery.

My Auntie Petunia -- a bothersome person -- has been pestering me everyday for some money to fix her air conditioning. She's like a booger I just can't thump off! So please with all your legal expertise -- let us finalize arrangements. We have been nothing but YAMMERING like schoolgirls these many days! LET US FINALIZE ARRANGEMENTS AT ONCE.

P.S. WE MUST HURRY ALSO BECAUSE i just RECEIVED ANOTHER INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY IN MY EMAIL THIS MORNING FROM NIGERIA (a nice man who has some gold he wants to send me! Boy, you Nigerians sure are rich!!) IF WE DON'T FINALIZE THIS DEAL SOON, I MAY DECIDE TO INVEST IN ANOTHER OF NIGERIA'S SEEMINGLY LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES!!!!!

Egad Merad!,

I am showing my happy face today upon the occurence of your photograph which I am viewing with both my eyes as I typing.

You are a most honorable man with a SMALL RED HAT! I see also that you have been the winner of a game because of the medal you are wearing around your neck. Good for you for being a competitor. You must always be a good athlete to be the winner, or maybe it was a spelling bee that you are the winner for, like we have in the good old USA!!

Please endeavor to tell me more about your medal. I also won a medal one time for eating the most pies (as Mr. Rug Doctor can attest.)

I am now sure that it was you because of the photograph. Hooray for following instructions, except that you are still forgetting the exclamation point after Merad which causes me trouble -- but that's OKAY FOR TODAY. Just remember next time.

Here is some of the information on who I am:

Name: WIlliam Charlie Johnson
Fax Number: 413-480-2033
Address: 1401 S. Wayne Street, Alexandria, VA 22301
Company Name: Johnson's Grinding & Smoothing (We're the guys that botched the Statue of Liberty job... Couldn't get the green off)

Now what? I'm ready to put this deal to bed. I've got my entire family crawling all up my behind for this and that, so lets get moving!! I need my damn money. Let you and I and Mrs. Bonehead endeavor now to get that slacker Mr. Rug Doctor out of his hospital bed, and send me the photograph. Then, it will be time to make the party in Nigeria!

Mr. Egad Merad! (You forgot the exclamation point again)

Oh dear, I am so embarassed and fear I have caused you great offense. Here I am praising your little medallion for being a winner of the game or spelling bee, and it was a special mourning death medallion upon the occurence of the passing of your good friend. I am sorry for your loss. Please accept my humblest apologizing all the time. I'M SUCH A STUPID POTATO!

I hate funerals, and as I always say to my wife and the little ones, Life is too short to be all blue and glum. We must be showing happiness always because we are all brothers and sisters on this big crazy blue planet we call Earth.

I'm only hoping that you let the late Attorney General know how much he meant to you before his tragic passing. Let us to put business aside for today, and just express your grief towards this great man. For him to have been both an attorney AND a general is really tops! He must have been the smartest one of all (except for your king of course.)

Anyways, that's what I have to say.

Now you listen hear captain. I also am weary of all of this daily silly talk, and I must say that I don't much appreciate the tone of your voice! I have no time to waste either, and I have been asking for very simple procedure to finalize this transaction. Don't you forget that I AM THE HEIR TO MR. ENGINEER JOHN CREEK AND WILL SOON BE WORTH $30 MILLION SO YOU TREAT ME WITH RESPECT, YOU...

1) It is taking you over many emails just to make the simple exclamation mark like I ask. Even though I'm telling you all the time that every time you forget, I have to do tinfoil stuff to my computer just to get your message. This is time consuming needless procedure that takes away from my business of grinding and smoothing.

2) I'm asking for over 3 weeks now for picture of Mr. Rug Doctor to proof that he is the one who he say he is. First he say he can't do, so then I says to him, I says "Okay Mr. Rug Doctor, then you don't have to wear red shirt, white pants, blue shoes (the USA Code) just send me a picture of your own self." Still no picture... Then he gets the diseases, and Mrs. Bonehead is all emailing me and stuff, and still I'm not having any picture like I supposed to.

3) Rug Doctor handy phone is a piece of crap! I'm pumping quarters all day long down to the local Qwik Mart pay phone trying to call your damn handy phone, and all I get is a busy signal. WAA WAA WAA WAA (That's what the sound makes into my earhole all day!)

4) You and Mr. Rug Doctor should know that even as we waste time to perfect the procedure I am considering perfecting other procedure for Migerian business opportunity. One Dr. Emmanuel Oluwa, Director General of the Migerian National Petroleum Corporation -- from Lagos has sent to me just this morning a strictly confidential and TOP SECRET proposal allowing me to be the beneficiary of $28 million US. Furthermore, Dr. Oluwa has assured me that this transaction is "100% legal and risk free" -- an assurance that I have yet to receive from you silly boys.

5) I cannot give you my phone number at this juncture because of the occurence of my police record for indecent exposure (Mr. Rug Doctor know all of this, as I send him the picture of my own self at my booking). I am fearing always that our country's secret agent is listening in on my phone calls.

6) I'm even offering to come to your country Migeria personally to make this transaction, but Mr. Rug Doctor discourages this from me. I even made my airline reservations and offered to make the party for him, BUT NO, He tells me I can't come to Migeria.

7) You promised to be sending me, and I quote from your email, "TEXT OF THE APPLICATION OF CLAIM WHICH WILL BE BACKED UP WITH A SWORN AFFIDAVIT FROM THE HIGH COURT DOWN HERE BEFORE THE BANK HEADQUARTER WILL RECOGNISE YOU AS THE TRULY NEXT OF KIN TO THE LATE ENG.", yet I still just receive crazy email with none of the text of application.

Time for wasting is through! I am a very busy man with all my grinding and smoothing. I need to be having from you NOW right away this thing:

1) A picture of Mr. Rug Doctor -- and since you've pissed me off, I will now require again that he must wear the red hat, white shoes and blue pants. No USA CODE, NO DEAL. YOU TELL THAT SICKO MR. RUG DOCTOR THAT HE BETTER MOVE QUICKLY. I DON'T WANT TO KEEP DR. OLUWA WAITING FOR ONE MORE DAY BECAUSE OF YOU NONSENSE BOYS TO DO THE CORRECT PROCEDURE.

2) Upon receipt of the picture of Mr. Rug Doctor, I will perfect the procedure as you require, AND WILL SEND TO YOU MY BANKING ACCOUNTS, and then wire whatever moneys required into your bank.

Mr. Egad Merad, I'm always trying to make friendly time with you and Mr. Rug Doctor, but you both are treating me like a speck of dust on an ant's ass! Forget you then. You don't want to be a friend, that's fine with me. Dr. Oluwa, has conducted himself as the consummate professional, and has extended the hand of friendship -- and $28 million opportunity. Move quickly, or I will conduct business with him because he is serious -- and making a 100% guarantee. You people are all yammering, but I'm beginning to think not very serious!

Egad Merad!

Thank you for the identification card of one Mr. Rug Doctor. Also thank you for making not one, but two exclamation marks for your name. Now you are coming through to my computer LOUD AND CLEAR!!!

I am not Angry Shoes man today, only confused now: I thought your name was The Honorable Barrister Egad M. Bitrus, Esq. (aka Egad Merad!), but you asking me to send my money to one Mr. Ibrahim Ahmed. Is he one of the other lawyers working on my inheritance case? Please confirm to me that is so.

If I hear you clearly on your shitty handy phone when I call yesterday, I am only to send you this much $3.500.00 for the Administrative fee. I will do this as you asking me, but still I must require the USA Code as I made perfectly clear yesterday in my email to you yesterday. I don't know why this is so difficult for you chaps to get through to your thick heads. Simply find a red shirt, blue pants and white shoes and send to me the photograph. If Mr. Rug Doctor is in the hospital, than by all means YOU TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR OWN SELF WEARING THE RED SHIRT, BLUE PANTS, AND WHITE SHOES, AND DELIVER TO ME VIA EMAIL.

The photograph you send of Mr. Rug Doctor was a good effort, But as I tell you yesterday, even as I writing, one Dr. Emmanuel Oluwa, Director General of the Migerian National Petroleum Corporation is offering me $28 million 100% RISK FREE. He has already fulfilled the USA code, and has already sent to me his picture wearing a red hat, blue shirt... HE REALLY TRIED TO FIND WHITE SHOES, BUT COULD NOT -- BUT HE GETS AN A+ FOR HIS PROMPT EFFORT. (I'm enclosing his picture to show you how a real professional operates.)

PHOTO OF PRINCE JUBRIL COMPLIMENTS OF BUDDYWEISERMAN.COM

I have already called Western Union here in the good old USofA, and have placed the funs in an escrow account either for YOU BOYS OR FOR DR EMANUEL OLUWA (WHOEVER FULFILLS MY REQUIREMENTS FIRST GETS MY BUSINESS.) Once I receive the photograph, I will TELL WESTERN UNION TO RELEASE THE FUNS TO MR. AHMED'S ATTENTION IN MIGERIA IF YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES MOVING THE QUICKLIEST. but be cautioned, Mr. Oluwa is also sending me his identification card on Tuesday, so if he is the winner, then I will only due business with him and not anymore with you boys.

I CANNOT DO ANY BUSINESS TODAY OR ALSO TOMORROW OR ALSO ON MONDAY because of the occurence of our holiday called "LABOR DAY." That's a holiday where we get off from labor -- so neither grinding nor smoothing for me until Tuesday at which time -- IF YOU HAVE THE PROPER MODALITIES WORKED OUT FOR THE PHOTOGRAPH -- I will release the funs.

RMA (Remember Me Always)

Happy Shoes

P.S. One small thing: I notice on Mr. Rug Doctor photograph that he call his date of issue the "22th July 2001." What kind of talk is that? Here in the good old USofA, we call it the "22nd." Here's a little tip that will help you when making number with letter after them. When saying "first" write it like this "1st." When saying "second" that equals "2nd" (not "2th" like that crazy Rug Doctor making it). Tell me if you want to be learning more of how to do numbers with letters after them... That's one of my strong suits.

Egad Merad,

I must only insist that you do as I require. This is the only way. I'm having already the money for the lawyer's fees sent to Western Union escrow account. Only the one that makes the USA code will be the one I do business with.

My ample wife is telling me all the day that you people are not serious. She says "You're screwy in your fat head to be doing this business with this men". I have to be getting this thing and that thing for my whole goofy family when I get my money. SO I HAVE TO BE VERY SERIOUS!

nOW: I NEVER ACCUSING YOU, EGAD MERAD, OR EVEN THE OTHER ONE MR. RUG DOCTOR, OR HIS PASSIONATE WIFE MRS. BONEHAND OF MAKING A TRICK ON ME. The USA code is the only way I know that you are serious.

If I get the photograph you may rest that I will wire the entire amount to Western Union immediately -- and then we will conclude our business and YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PAYMENT FOR ALL OF YOUR EXCELLENT LEGAL WORK!

Otherwise, my time is very wasting now with grinding and smoothing business. I tell Dr. Oluwa today that I'm waiting on you boys before doing business with the Migerian Petroleum Company, but I can't wait forever. If you don't believe me, you can see my message to this man below. (EDITORS NOTE: AT THIS POINT I SENT AN EMAIL TO A SEPARATE EMAIL ADDRESS I SET UP FROM ANOTHER FICTIONAL NIGERIAN 419 SCAMMER.)

Anyways, that's where I'm putting my toes down. I have to have the USA Code Photograph.

Thank you again for the business proposal you are sending me on 8/29.

Currently, I am waiting on two boys that I shall call Rug Doctor and Egad Merad (These are code names in case you are wondering!!) to finalize details for a separate inheritance proposal in Nigeria. They have aksed me to keep the details only strickly confidential like, so I can't discuss with you.

Anyways, I must give them the first opportunity to fulfill the terms of our agreement. But as I tell you earlier, they are moving slowly -- unlike you who moves more quickliest. If they don't agree to the terms by this coming week, then I will cancel arrangement with them -- and you and I can commence to finalize modalities for the $28 million.

As I tell them and you, I have already put the money into Western Union escrow account for my good faith and lawyer fees. Whosoever makes the USA Code, and send his identification first will be the one I do business with.

Thank you again, and have a happy day.

Prior to this mail, I have already contacted another attorney BARRISTER. KOFI ADO and I have already explained to him the present situation of transaction as my husband has advice.

This new attorney will be working with you as he has agreed and ensure immediate release of the fund to you immediately with your total co-operation.

So therefore I will advice you contact the attorney immediately via his E mail: kofado@ureach.com and also get back to me so that I can relate the outcome to my husband at the hospital.

He also advice you to be more serious this time, so that everything can be concluded successfully within the next four working days.

That's a poem I righting just for you Mrs. Bonehead! Thank you for you and your husband for understanding that this Mr. Egad Merad man gave me the heebie jeebies, the willies, the creeps -- whatever you call it. He is most unserious, and whining about this and that... Lawyers, what are they good for?

Mrs. Bonehead, I'm only hopping all around the neighborhood on one foot tonight because I am so pleased with Mr. Rug Doctor decision not to lose faith in me -- and because I can't find my medicine for my head!

Tell the new lawyer man to sending me the USA code picture at once. Thing is moving quickly here, and I wanting to show you my good faith with the $3500 before I come to Nigeria. I making my plane reservations on Monday to come to Nigeria for the other deal with Dr. Oluwa who say he will be my business adviser for this deal also.

It's critical for me to GET THE MONEY TO YOU QUICKLY OVER WESTERN UNION, BEFORE I COME TO NIGERIA WHICH WILL BE IN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO. TO DO THIS THING, I MUST HAVE THE VERY SIMPLE USA CODE OF MY NEW LAWYER, OR SOME PERSON LIKE YOUR OWN SELF OR MR. RUG DOCTOR OWN SELF.

What's the plan with this guy? He's emailing me every day about coming to Nigeria.

Do you still have him hooked like a fish? He wired my associate in Abuja another $500 over the weekend.

Need to hear from you if you want to join with me. Send me a reply.

Brother,

Here's the plan. I talk with Happy Shoe over the weekend and gave him two plans which he can pick. 1) he can come to Abuja 2) he can travel to Freetown and meet us there.

I don't want him to come to Lagos. All my people are in Abuja -- including immigration, and immigration in Lagos is too big problem for me. Also, Lagos is too much crazy for this man. He would either get spooked, or we risking some others would see his white face, and move in on our pigeon.

Freetown is the other option. I have very good contact with a Nigerian ECOMOG man (a Major) in Freetown who will help us. I have already talk with him, and he agree to make the man feel secure by greeting him at Lumley Airport with troops for his protection.

My plan is we give this man the "royal treatment" make him think he being treated like a king, take his money and then be on the next flight to Nigeria. Or if we do the Abuja plan, we will just meet him at the airport and I will hire a car. We will rob him good in the car, and then throw him out -- maybe in Karu -- that would be a big problem for him for sure!

Here's what I need from you to be part of this plan. I tell this man that I will be his business advisor for other business opportunity in Nigeria and Sierra leone. He say he also want to maybe buy diamonds, and finish his deal with you, but you have not act in good faith yet with the USA Code.

He tell me that you also get a new lawyer for him. Now you can take the picture for the USA code and just tell him that is his new lawyer.

I will need you to meet me in Abuja or Freetown if you agree. Because I already winning this man confidence, let us agree that our split of this reward will be 70-30.

I talk him into now coming with $50,000, so that will be $15,000 for you and $35,000 for me and my own people. I'm only hoping that you are working this man on your own. It make it easier than if there are other people we have to be sharing the reward with, which I don't want to do.

Let me know what your plan is. I want to move quickly so he don't start thinking.

Salaam aleikum

Sulaiman

Mr. Coffee,

Always one of you is sick, or the other one is into the hospital withh a disease or this or that or another thing of some sort.

Then another one has a death in the family, Ok then for you I say. You get a free pass to cry for a few days.

Please accept my apology for the death of the dear old aunty. May she rest in everlasting peace in the aroused lap of our savior and supreme
benefactor -- the one we call Vishnu (always in a most high, and squeaky voice.)

Oh woe is me today, and woe to your awful circumstance. What craziness goes on in your country anyway? My God, I've never seen such suffering like this 1) Mr. Rug Doctor comes down with the diseases. 2) My other lawyer has an emotional problem 3) My other lawyer can't find a handy scanner, or fix his one 4) Now the death of your dear old aunty.

Dagnabbit, the suffering is just too great for you people. Here in the good old USofA, well sure we get sick and die also, but it's not like it's an everyday occurence. For one thing, just so you know, we have great food to eat like McDonald's (Big Macs), and KFC (chicken), and Popeyes (also some chicken).

That makes us healthy and strong. You should see my arm muscle!

But I digress. Again, sorry, sorry, sorry, so sorry for the dear old aunty. Let me know when you get with the program.

Happy Shoes

P.S. I say a pray to Vishnu tonight for your aunty, and here's how it go: Mr. Vishnu, Pray unto lay lord sorriness. Protect and keep Mr. Coffee Aunty from harm in your kingdom... That's all folks.

Attn: happy shoes,

I got your mail response and I know definitely you have every
cause to be angry for this my uninformed set out it was just a
coincidence.

I am not really happy to have not sent to you my photograph as
promised which I believe is the delay to this transaction but
not to worry I promised everything will be over my next week
upon my arrival and there will be no excuse.

I have a problem down here, I do not have enough money to get
myself back to Lagos as I have already exhausted all I have
during the burial and the worst thing is that my bank does not
have any branch from where I can withdrawn some fund for my
return ticket.

I therefore implore you assist me with about US$450.00 four
hundred and fifty united states dollars to enable me get my
return ticket and arrive by tomorrow unfailingly after which I
will immediately get the photograph from the photo shop and
sent to you without any delay or excuse.

Sorry for any inconveniences this might caused you but it is
the only out for me. You can even deduct this from the money
you want to send to me for the processing of the transfer upon
receiving my photograph.

Please endeavor to send this money on receipt of this mail.
You can send it via UBA MONEY GRAM with the below information.

Receiver’s name: David okon
Address : 43 broad street Lagos Nigeria
Text question: for what
Answer: come back

Then you can scan and send the receipt to me so that I can
forward the information to the receiver to enable him purchase
ticket for me over there in Lagos.

Please endeavor to do this immediately you will receive the
photograph from me on my arrival back to Lagos on Saturday.

Thanks
Regards,

Mr. coffee

You poor soul you. I am pounding my fist through the wall with how unjustly this all is. I am so upset for your situation that I have broken out in hives on my buttocks (which making it uncomfortable for me to sit around all day on my ass like usual.)

Okay, Mr. Coffee, here me with both of your ears. Of course I will send you the money, and the easiest way for me to do this thing will be for me to send $450.00 immediately through my Nigerian business advisor -- who I already am making a big plan with.

He name is Dr. Oluwa -- but you are to only call him Mr. Krispy Kreme – as his code name.

I will wire the $450.00 to his associate in wheresoever it is that your own self is at, and he will cheerfully deliver said funs to you. I am sending him a message now, and he will be in touch with your own self very shortly.

Stand by little buddy! Don't lose hope!

Happy Shoes to the Rescue.

ATTN. HAPPY SHOES,

I DO NOT LIKE THE WAY YOU TURN THINGS AROUND. IF YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO SEND ME ANY MONEY, DO THAT WITH MY INSTRUCTION.

I AM IN A DIFFERENCE STATE AND I CAN NOT MEET OR SEE ANYONE THAT I DO NOT KNOW REGARDING THIS.

SO THEREFORE FOR SECURITY AND SAFETY, SEND THE MONEY WITH MY INSTRUCTION TO ENABLE ME ARRIVE TOMMOROW AS SCHEDULED AND SEND YOU THE PHOTOGRAPH.

UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS LIKE A BORROW I WILL MAKE IT UP FOR YOU SO THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO SEND ME THE WHOLE US$3,500 AFTER RECEIVING MY PHOTOGRAPH YOU CAN DEDUCT THIS MONEY FROM THERE I WILL THEN ADD IT UP.

I EXPECT YOU TO SEND THIS MONEY IMMDEIATELY THE EARLIER THE BETTER.

Mr. Coffee,

Now wait just a gosh-darn minute peanut. Don't you raise your letters at me YOU!

Who are you to be making question how I send you my hard-earned grinding and smoothing money? I tell you that I send you money, and I sent the money to my business advisor just this afternoon like I tell you. HE SAY HE WILL GET THE MONEY TO WHOSEVER YOU DENIGRATE, AND WHATSOEVER LOCATION YOU DENIGRATE.

And what is you making a demand of me anyway. You should seriously brush up on your mannerisms because you have very bad ones with all of your demanding and "expecting" of this and that and the other thing.

Dr. Oluwa and I talk, and he assure me that he will get the money to you just like I say he will. I even give him your email address. He has a very important business associate all over your kingdom -- so he tell me he can get the money to you wheresoever it is that you are currently being at.

You will get your money, you will see, but I MUST TELL YOU THIS THING. YOU ARE NOW THE NUMBER TWO LAWYER THAT IS MAKING PROBLEM. MR. EGAD MERAD WAS NUMBER ONE ATTORNEY WHO CAUSE ME ALL SORT OF PROBLEMS.

I REGURGITATE MY SORROW FOR YOUR POOR DECREPIT AUNTY, OKAY? BUT LISTEN HEAR CHICO. I BEING MORE THAN PAITIENCE WITH YOU PEOPLE.

Happy SHoes
