 Dear ,
 I know my message will come to you as a surprise. Don´t worry I was

to your account for onward investment (hotel industries) in your
country. I am MR.Mosees Nkusu the son of the former chief of
defence-staff Late
General Hanis Nkusu of Guinea Bissau.
My late father was killed on december 1998 following his role as a
rebel leader against the pastgovernment of Guinea Bissau .
 
Following this political crisis, I was forced to leave our country to
Abidjan the capital city of Coted´Ivoire for our life sake. It is
here in Abidjan he deposited this said consignment in a private
security company as a family valuables. We got to know about this
information and as well able to recover all the relevant documents
regards to this deposits through his foreign adviser here in Abidjan.
If you are thus and truly disposed to assist us in transferring of
this funds kindly write me through my e-mail address to confirm your
full interest.
 
Dear, please kindly assist me for I am very sick and always in the
church receiving prayers and God's protection over me and as the only
surviving son of my father.
More information about the lifting of this funds legally follows
immediately after your and positive reply.
 
 Thanks you for your maximum co-operation.

10/17/03 – From Flacid to Mosees
 
Sweet Fancy Mosees:
 
What a pleasure to receive your message.  I am so depressed as of late.  You see I am a widower and have also discovered I suffer from a liver ailment (a little too much whiskey in my younger days).  Your message brightened my day.
 
In fact, I would ask that you help me to look on the bright side of life by repeatedly using the phrase:
 
GET UP FLACID WILLIE
 
Will you do this for me son, please?
 
As information, the name “Flacid” is the Gaelic term for “Limber”.  It is an odd name I know but it is an old family name handed down by my ancestors, a group of traveling Irish contortionists.
 
As for my number, you can reach me at 206-XXX-XXXX.  If you are sending fax, use the same number and hit “send” when the message indicates.
 
With a full heart and an empty bladder,
 
Flacid Willie

Sweet Mosees:

 

I would love to open my home to you.  Oh the times we will have playing ball, flying kites, rollin’ in my 5.0. and scoring thick-ass women.

 

I had not planned to travel this year but I think a trip would do me some good.  Let’s do it.

 

I need some information:

 

(1) what is the address of the holding company

(2) what city should I fly into

(3) what dates are good for you

 

Also, I need you to provide me with a photograph so that I can recognize you at the airport.  I am somewhat blind (although I can see) due to glaucoma.  As such I will need something to help me spot you.  Please provide a photo of yourself holding a sign with my favorite motivational saying:

 

“GET UP FLACID WILLIE”

 

In the interim, I will prepare the paperwork to allow for your residency in my home.

 

With a full heart and a bulbous knob,

 

Flacid Willie

Sweet fancy Moses:
 
I am off to purchase a phone for you today.  Are you sure your primitive country has cellular access?
 
Who is JUICY GOLDEZE, is he a friend of yours?  Also, wouldn’t I need more than simply “Juicy Goldeze, Abidjan, Ivory Coast”?  I mean seriously, don’t you people have addresses over there?
 
What color phone would you like?
 
It looks as if I will be arriving via AIR FRANCE at 6:00 p.m. on October 27, 2003.  Will this date work for you?
 
I plan to bring $10,000 in cash.  Will this be sufficient to pay the demurrage fees and pay for a hotel?
 
Lastly, stop calling me “Mummy” and “Mama” you are giving me the creeps.  Please do not use these colloquial terms and address me properly as “Flacid”, “Father”, “Papa”, “Big Daddy”, or “Debbie”.  I need you to begin to act like a civilized child.

10/22/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Mosees:

 

I still need to know what color phone you want.  Also, I spoke with UPS today and they told me that you do have addresses in your country and that simply using a name and the country as an address will not be sufficient to get the phone to you.  As such, I will just bring the phone with me when I come to Abidjan.

 

Next, before I fly to another country I must ask that you forward a photo of yourself holding some form of identification so that I can know that this deal is for real and not a set-up to get me killed.

 

Son, I am so sorry to appear that I do not trust you.  However I have been fooled before.  In particular, have you ever heard of metabolife or the thigh master?  They did not live up to their claims.

 

Anyway, this simple act will let me know that I can trust you.  Please send a photo of yourself holding a sign that includes my favorite motivational saying:

 

GET UP FLACID WILLIE

 

With warm regards and a full bowel,

 

Flacid

10/23/03 - Mosees to Flacid

Dear sir,

How are you today ?I hope all is well with you. I am forwarding my picture as you requested. I am very sorry for the delay .As I told you I manage to raise little money today to scan and printing of this picture to make sure that I did send it to you.. note that I am in full receipt of your plight schedule and the date that you will arrive here, I will be at the airport to receive you with the sign that you want me to hold for you to identify me.

Could you please send me your picture  as well for me to identify you too.

I went to the security to inform them that my late father’s foreign business partner will be coming down for us to claim the box so that they could get it ready for claim. To this effect, the operation manager told me that further accumulation of demurrage on the consignment has being suspended till the next seven working days. The total amount needed to retrieve the box therefore stands at seven thousand, two hundred U.S dollars($7,200USD). Please I hope that you will come with this amount so that we can facilitate the process when you come.

And also bear in mind that you will need to open a non residential account when you come to lodge the fund for onward transfer into your  foreign account and after this, we fly back together. I am greatly looking forward to meeting you. I want you to make a hotel reservation with PALM BEACH HOTEL. This is at the outskirts  of town nearer to the beach  and very decent and comfortable. Make your reservation from there and let me know your room number Please I still remind you to make this very secret and confidential for the security of my life and the fund.

I have attached my personal photo as you requested. Please what about the hand set? Try and send it today so that I can put my card in it to comunciate effective with you and the security before your arrival. I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Yours,

Mosees.

Mosees:

Do you take me for a fool?  The photo you sent looks like it was clipped from a magazine.  I need a new photo, with my favorite motivational saying on a sign.

I am canceling my plans to arrive on 10/27/03 and will not reschedule until I have received the new photo.

Red and bothered,

Flacid

 

10/27/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear Sir,
 
I got your mail and understood your point of view. the picture I sent
to you is just a passport picture which I saw will satisfy your
demand but as you have explained, I am going to take a picture as you
instructed. I will make this express and once it is ready before the
end of today, I will send it to you together with the document that
covers the deposit of the boix containing the money at the security
company. Please I hope you remain committed to helping me. I will get
back to you later.
 
 
Yours sincerely,

Mosees.

 

[Quick thinking Mosees, you really covered your tracks on that one]

 

 

10/27/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear Sir,

 

I have attached the photo and  see a big depreciation in my physical look in the photo as comapred with the first one I sent when I was still in my country with my both parents still alife.

 

I hope that the photo satisfies your curiosity and doubts. Please now that you have them, could you quickly reconfirm your arrival day to me. Bear in mind that that I have already gone to inform the security company of your arrival and our intension to claim the box. I therefore wait for your immediate reply upon your receipt of this mail. Thank you and look forward to hearing from you soonest.

 

Yours son,

Mosees

 

 

[I like the way Mosees explains away the fact that the first picture was a fake.  He is industrious this boy of mine.  And yet, this is still not the picture I asked for]]

 

10/27/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Mosees:

 

Why are you screwing with me?  What did I do to deserve this.  The picture you attached is of a young man holding a blank piece of paper. It looks like something someone would use to write in whatever phrase was needed with a photo editor or Photoshop except no one has written anything.

 

Are you trying to trick me?  I said I had poor vision, not that I was an idiot.

 

Please provide the photo with the phrase “GET UP FLACID WILLIE”, otherwise I will presume you to be a fraud and I will end this deal right now young man.

 

Flacid

 

 

 

10/28/03 – Mosees to Flacid

Dear father,

I have attached the new picture just as you instructed. I hope this is very okay. I passed through the eye of the needle to get this done as it cost me some money. I have not yet recieved my meagre monthly allowance from the united nations refugee welfare committee so have being finding it very difficult to cope. Please father be rest assured that your safety is guaranteed and there should be no any cause for alarm. It will take us about three working days to accomplished everyhthing upon your arrival here. As I earlier made you to knoiw, I have intimated the security company authority of our intension to come for the claim of the box and have still gone to remind them of this today after reading your mail. So note that all is perfectly arrandged and under control. However you can still confirm your coming directly to them and please I want you to aslo send your pciture so that I can quickly spot you from the other passengers on board. Please try to send this as requested. I tried severally to call you on phone but to no avail. I only heard a voice message. I expect to read from you before you go on board tomorrow. I look forward to meeting you very soon.

Yours son,

Mosees.

[Oh yeah, that’s the money shot.  He finally gave it up]

 

10/28/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Sweet Fancy Mosees:

 

Thank you so much for the photo.  Now I know you are for real and that soon I will have a son!

 

I have booked a new flight.  I will be arriving on Air Morocco on October 31, 2003 at 2:00 a.m.  Is this too early?  It was the earliest flight I could get.  I want to see you as soon as possible.  Here is the flight information:

 

ROYAL AIR MAROC 533, ARR 0200, 31/10/2003

 

With three days in Abidjan what will we do with our spare time?  Is there a beach near by?  Can we go and Boogie Board?  Should I bring you a Boogie Board or do you have one already?

 

Now that I know I can trust you, I am attaching a photo of myself.  The photo was taken at a football game last weekend.  When I arrive I will be wearing the same shirt, however my face will not be painted.

 

With a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind,

I will not write much since we will soon be meeting. I only pray that God should safely bring you down here and guide us together to accomplish the transaction upon your arrival. Thank you for your much concern and look forward to meeting you not fogeting to come along with those gifts you promised including the mobile phone.

Yours son,

[The man wants his damn phone!]

___________________________________________________________________________________________

(VOICEMAIL)

Mosees leaves a voice mail!  He may have left some before but nothing was ever as coherent as this message.

Basically Mosees is calling to confirm that I am in fact flying to Abidjan.  I guess my next e-mail needs to calm his fears.

Sorry, I cannot figure out how to save the voicemail file from the website.

 

 

10/30/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Mosees:

 

I am writing this from a terminal in the Paris Airport.  I cannot write much as the charge is like $10.00 per minute.

 

I received your phone message and I just wanted you to know that I am coming to save you from your life of squalor.  I am sorry I did not answer, I believe I must have been on my way to the airport already.

 

I must go now as I am very hungry.  As I am hypoglycemic I must eat very regularly.  Rightnow I really want a Quarter Pounder from McDonald’s there must be a McDonald’s in this airport somewhere.  Be strong my son, I will see you soon.

With warm regards and a deviated septum,

 

Flacid

 

 

10/31/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear father,

 

I am glad to hear that you are in Paris France. I was at the airport throughout yesterday night till this morning waiting for you until I was told that the aircraft ROYAL AIR MAROC 533 could not come.  What really happened? I hope it was nothing serious.

 

Please note that, I will still be at the airport today to welcome you with a secutity agent provided to me by the security company. I hope you will still put on the cloth as you described to me earlier. All arrangements to secure the box from the custody of the security company has being done, it is only left with our paying the required fee to claim the box. I wait anxiously to meet you father.

 

Yours son,

Mosees.

 

[Holy Crap!  What luck, my flight was canceled!  I really think Mosees was at the damn airport at 2:00 a.m.!!!  Too damn funny]

 

 

11/1/03 – Mosees to Flacid

i have pleaded with the security company to forgive me for your disappointed and the inconvinences that you have caused them.

please get back to me immediately so that we can conclude this transaction on time.remember that i have introduce you to them as my late father foreign business partner and co_beneficiary of the consignment and it will look suspecious if i choose another person to stand for me because i don,t want to loose this money and that is the only hope that i have got in this world.

so understand my plight and get back to me immediately.

waiting anxioismy for your urgent reply.

[Mosees is beginning to think he has been played for a fool, I had better explain the delay in my response]

 

 

11/1/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Sweet Fancy Moses:

I am so sorry you are disappointed. Let me explain what has happened.

While I was in teh Paris Airport I became very hungry. I am hypoglycemic
and must eat every 53 minutes. I really wanted a Quarter Pounder from
McDonalds. I found a McDonalds but they did not have a Quarter Pounder. All
they had was something called a "Royale with Cheese". It was OK but really
was not the same.

Anyway, after looking for a Quarter Pounder I was behind schedule and had
to run to catch my flight. Security personnel must have thought I was a
terrorist because they stopped me as I came running up to the security
checkpoint.

Mosees, they searched every bag in my possession. They took the Boogie
Board I brought you along with the acid wash jeans and the OP shorts I
brought you to wear. Then they became very suspicious, asking me why I was
carrying an extra cellular phone and $10,000 in cash. They said they would
throw me in jail until I admitted I was a terrorist or a drug dealer! They
did not let me go until noon today!!!

In the end, I told them I was coming to Abidjan to help yuo, my adopted son,
in a business deal. I even showed them your photo so they would know I was
sisncere and so they could help me get to see you. What do you think they
told me? They told me you were probably just a scam artist who would
kidnap
me upon my arrival in Abidjan. I do not want to believe that.

I trust you my son, but now I am very confused.

Presently, I am staying in the Hotel "Little Regina" in Paris, it is near
Gar de le Est and you can see the Eiffel Tower from my room. I am sending
this from the Voulet Vous Cyber Cafe. I really do not know what to do.

Those bastards confiscated most of my money so I am afraid I may have to go
back to the United States to get more money.

What should I do?

[Yes!  He bought my sob story]

 

11/3/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear father, I read your mail just this Monday evening. I was so shocked
and carried by the disappointment that I felt sick. I read your mail with
mixed feelings in view of what both of us have gone through. I am terribly
confused and do not see how the devil could be such wicked and cruel to me
knwpoing what I have gone through here. Please, do not mind them. I AM REAL
AND HONEST and sincerely need your urgent foreign reply as requested. The
Frenchs I observed are so bad, and delight in racism. They are not
kidnappers and criminals yet they deprived you of your money. For what
reason if I may ask?

It is unfortunate that this happened and have caused very big delay and
discomfort to me and you but every hope has not eluded if you are still
willing and interested to help me which I hope you are. You would never
regret coming to my aid and upon your arrival here, I shall be vindicated
of such insinutions made by the French emigrations. And to butress the
existenc eof the money to you, I have attached the photo of the box
containing the money for your view but please do not show it to anybody
even my personal photo for the security of our life and the money. This
photo was taken before the deposit of the box was made and as I have made
you to know earlier, the security company authority does not know the real
content so the box as my late father declared it as family valauables. So
please, I want you to stand firm and come here so that we can accomplish
the claim of the box and make a subsequent transfer of the money int your
account and thenwe fly back together. You should never dsiclose your
mission here and I made you to know this at the very begining. Claim that
you are coming on tour so that you will not be hasrrased for any reason by
any body. If the fund left on you is not enbough to claim the box, I
suggest that you go back and get it as the security company will not agree
to release the box without making full payment to them. Please do not feel
bad about this. i am much sorry for the incovenience but hope that we can
easily and quickly amend and secure back the lost and delayed time. I
really ned your help and hope that you will not forsake and abandon me.
Provide me with the phone numbver of the hotel you are lodged so that we
can talk in confidence. I wait anxiously for your reply.
Yours son,
Mosees.


 


[Holy Cow!  This guy must be for real, he sent me a picture of money in a box!  Never mind the fact that he previously told me that there was only one box or the fact that I have received this photo from other scammers, Mosees must be the real deal.  NOT.  But now I know he is still on the line.  Let’s reel him in a bit more]

 

 

11/3/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

My goodness, that does look like alot of money.  And it is so neatly stacked in those pretty flower-lined trunks.  How thoughtful.

Here is the information for the hotel here in Paris, however I am checking out today so that I can return to the united states to claim my money.  You see the French authorities confiscated teh $10,000 in cash and said I would have to prove to United States Customs that I possessed the money legitimately.  They are requiring that I return to the United Sattes and report to customs officials in Washington , D.C.

Once I have re-acquired the money I will return to Abidjan.  However, I do not know how long this process will take.  When I do come back, I believe I will bring travellers checks, which apparently are more acceptable to the authorities.  Is this acceptable with you and the security company capons?

Anyway, the hotel information is as follows:

Hotel Little Regina, 89 Blvd Strousberg, 75010, Paris - telephone: 33.(0)4.77.49.99.90

I am checking out later today and leaving for Washington, D.C. on a 7:00 p.m. flight.

Keep in touch,

with warm wishes and deviated septum,

Flacid Willie

 

[Note – the Hotel Little Regina is real and it is at Gar de le Est (east station) I stayed there once while backpacking across Europe.  The phone number I gave is for the hotel’s fax machine]

 

 

11/4/03 – Mosees to Flacid

Dear Father,

 

To be sincere it was very nice hearing that you want to go back to your country safely with out any thing happening to you.to me the your life is more important to me than the money that authorities confiscated and i believe you will get it back.you know that america is the most powerfull country in the whole world today and the french are always full of jealousness and inferiority complex and that is why the did that to you.but i thank the Almighty God that you worship that you are still alive.glory be to God.You know that i am very sick and the pressure of what happened made me to be more sick.

i want to the security company to apologise for any inconvennience that this might have causesd them and assured them that you are going to come back and claim the consignment on my behalf.this is real and that is why i send my picture to you.and i went to the air two consecutive times to wait for you.if it is not real you can publish my picture to the whole world.besides i have every documents to prove this.please papa dont forget me because when you accepted to help me my life changed hoping that soon or later i will be in USA which is the No I country in the world today with  such amount of money.that means alot in my entire life.i am crying while writing this mail to you papa.

please make up your mind and help me for you will never regret knowing me and i am sure one day you will tell me thank you very much my son.you know that we are living in a world of give and take.so for your efforts and sacrifice to make it happen as we planed it, am sure you will gain a lot for it.personally God will reward you for helping an opharn like me that has no body to stand for me.and with out you i am lost.

please make sure you get you money back from those french racist,they are al ways like this.even here in this country.

concerning paying the money through travellers check is not a good option rather you can send the money through western union money transfer so that the money will be here and before you arrive.the security company does not accept travellers check.so i wish you safe journey back to your country and as soon as you are ready to come back do let me know so that we will tell you how to send the money to the security company to avoid unnecessary embarrassment from the authorities and make another arrangement to receive you but let it be quick papa because i am suffering in this country.

meanwhile you have to send the phone to me via federal exprees because it is good for us to communicate.assuming that i have that phone as i directed you to send it at least you would have call me to let me know.my card is ready but no phone to put it.my tel no.is 22507512630 but it will not work now unless i put it inside phone.

so papa send the phone with this name

JUICE GOLD K.EZE

FEDERAL EXPRESS

ABIDJAN COTE D IVOIRE.

Send the tracking number  and exact how you send it because with out it they will not give it to me papa.it is very important for us to communicate through.i have tried to call your house number several times but always on anwsering machine.you can also send me some money may be $600.00 dollars for me to take care of my illness and buy some medicines that doctors prescribe for me and some cloths .you can send the money through western union as well with the same name.

i will try to call you in your hotel in france but am not sure if you will be there at that time becuse i have to try if some body will borrow me some money to call you now that i am writing i dont have any thing.some times i cry for my conditions.

 

waiting anxiuosly to hear from you.

yours lovely son

mosees nkusu.

 

[Damn, he really wants that phone.  And just a quick $600 for walking around money]

________________________________________________________________________

11/6/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Sweet Fancy Mosees:

You certainly have strong feelings regarding the French. I don't blame
you, what with their funny accents and silly berets.

Anyway, I am back in the United States and I recovered the money(less a
$250 fee assessed for travelling with an excess amount of U.S. currency).
How should I bring this money to you? Perhaps I should buy $10,000 worth
of Krugerand coins. They are from Africa so you should be able to freely
exchange them on the street. I could carry a bunch of coins in a baloon in
my rectum to avoid detection by those french bastards. Does this sound
like a feasible plan? Will there be a physician or attendant at the
airport to help retrieve the coins from my ass? If not, I do not want to
risk intestinal injury.


I making attempts to send the cellular phone as you have instructed.  Again, who
exactly is JUICE GOLDEZE? Is he a friend of yours? Regardless, I think I
might need an address and not simply his name and the country in question.
You do have addresses there don't you.  As I stated, I contacted UPS and they told me
that writing down only a name and a country will not work to get a package
anywhere.

When should I plan to return to Abidjan? What are the good tourists
seasons? When do the leaves change color?

With warm regards and a full bladder,

Flacid

 

[I really thought the Krugerands in the ass plan would have turned him away, but Mosees keeps scamming.  Tenacious little bastard isn’t he]

Here is a picture of the phone I have purchased for you.  Is this color acceptable or would you like one in red?

11/7/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear Father,

I thank you for your mails. It is unfortunate that we have not yet being able to attain sucess in the transaction and this is not safe for me here.

Meanwhile, I have gone to the security company today and have discussed very alternatively with their operation manager. I told the man the problem your encountered at France which led to your gojng back to the U.S. He sympathetically made me to understand that they could uplift the box to you in U.S through their diplomatic agent.This implies that the box wil be giving a diplomatic coverage and will not pose any problem until it is delivered to you. And to facilitate this, he said that since the ownership/beneficiary of the box is not in your name, there must be a change of ownership/beneficiary of the box into your name which I as the beneficiary will approve officially and the a new certificate of owernship and a leter of authorisation will be issued in your name and these documents, you can claim the box from the diplomatic agent with the presentation of your passport or driving license. Like I earlier told you, the impression is that the contents of the box is family valuables and not money and this should remain secret until you claim the box from the diplomatic agent. I feel this alterantive to be convenient if you can not be able to come here but it has to take me mcuh to have that trust in you since you will have to keep the fund on trust for me until I come to meet you there. I hope you will not betray me on this when the box comes into your care.

The operation manager told me that they will contact you and let you know the details of this process. Please if there is anything you do not understand from them, bring that to my immediate notice so that I can enlighten you more on the issue. Note that the box is well sealed and locked and only I have the secret code to open it and this I will disclose to you once the box is uplifted to you in U.S so that you can have access to it and send me some money to enable me obtain my visa and process other travelling documents and buy ticket(I will need you to send me an invitation a letter to make it easier for me to get the visa.)This will have to be when you have confirmed to me the receipt of the box.

And as for the phone, I did not see the scanned sample of the phone. You should send it in the name of JUICE GOLD K..EZE. (care taker of our refugee camp).He is an honest and trustworthy man. Send if through Federal express Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire(FEDEX). When you send this, let me have the tracking number and other information through my e-mail box. Please note that the political crises of this country has started again and so I want you to put in your best to ensure that the box is secured out of this country and to enable me also save my life. Your maximum co-operation is much anticipated. I look forward to hearing from you soonest.

Yours son,

Mosees.

 

[And so Mosees has taken the scam in a new direction.  I predict this means he has sought help from someone else to play the part of the Security Company.

 

Note, he still wants his damn phone!]

 

 

11/7/03 – Flacid to Mosees

 

Mosees:

 

What a bright young man you are.  I shall await correspondence from the security company.

 

Please advise, is a blue phone acceptable or should I return it for a red phone?

Dear father,

 

I am happy to hear that the security company has contacted you and you have replied them. I was there myself this morning to confirm if they contacte dyou as I was told yesterday but could not meet in operation manager in person to attend to me. I therefore decided to go there on Monday as they do not work on Sundays. Please I would really like you to keep me inform with whatever correspondence you have with them. So you can let me see their email to you and your response to them befoee I can go there on Monday. I will also let you know of the development on Monday. I wish that this will be completed in this coming week so that I can quickly leave the shores of this country that is now full of political crises that has endangers peoples lifes.

I wish you a nice and pleasant weekend. May God bless you for your sincere concern and efforts towards elevating my plight.

 

Yours son,

Mosees.

 

 

11/10/03 – Mosees to Flacid Willie

 

Dear father,

 

I hope you are fine today. I would have written to you earlier before this but was seriously delayed at the court. I thank God I was finally through in issuing the requested court approval for the change of ownership of the box into your name. This was a very bitter experince to me as the commissioner for aoths tried to refuse this insisting that your presence will be required physically. People that find themselves in top positions take undue advantage of that to frustrate and exploit the poor and this is very peculiar to the frecnh speaking countries who are much bias and discrimanatory. The document has being taken to the security company by their lawyer who went to the cort with me. I understood that the security company will send you a form to fill and return back to me and they also demanded for a charge of $2,680 which I understood must be paid befoe the change is done.

 

Please I request you to fill the said form as soon as you get it and also send the money to them so that they can accomplish the change and issue you the the documents that will make it legal and easy for you to claim the box. I also request that you will send me any document issued to you in respect of this for my own keep. Please write and inform me as soon as you accomplish this with the security company so that I can know the day the box will be carried to you. I am anxious to see this completed very soon and hope that you will not betray the trust I have put in you. May God help us.

 

Yours son,

Mosees.

11/12/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear father,

I read your mail to the security company and went there to have a btter explanation from them. They confimred to me that they equally got such mail from you and have replied back to you given you the details as you asked. I went to the extent of going to see the lawyer who accompanied me to the court and he confirmed the detail of the court charge to me. He made me to know that, it was even with his influence and connection that the process was made easy and the related document that will empower the security company to effect the change issued without any delayand much demand of money as it is the case here in this part of our sub-region especially as both you and I are none citizens of the country. Please note that the people here are very discrimanatory and can frustrate one to have his way or need very easily. This is a french speaking country where exist much discrimination especially against foreigners. I am happy that we could obtain the document easily from the court.

Please father, Much as such an amount has being required to make the change, I beg you to try and send it to me so that they can finish the change of ownership and issue you with the document that will make it easy for you to claim the box. I personally do not think that the required amount is not much as compared with the amount contained in the box and please remember that the security company authority does not know that the box contains money and so we should not make or create any awareness that will lead to any suspicion on the box. I implore you to just send the money to them and urge them to go about the rest of the process very quickly and uplift the box to your designated address. I am really much worried here. The political cituation in the country gets worst everyday and all eforts to make peace between the waring fractions have o far proved abortive. I have to hasten up to save my life and secure the fund from here before there is a possible outbreak of war in this country. I have to revamp my life and continue my family lineage. your foreign fatherly assistance is required to help me achieve this desire. I request that if you send the money, also let me know so that I can go and met them to ensure that the rest of the process is quickly and properly done. I have trust and confidence in you and hope that you will not let me down. I thank you for your efforts and anxiously wait to hear from you as soon as you send the form you are suppose to fill and the money to the security company.

Yours son,

Mosees.

{It’s time to create a little turmoil]

 

Mr. Dialo:

I am hesitant to pay this fee to a company I have never heard from.  I will be glad to pay the amount plus interest upon delivery of the item in question.

In fact, there may be a considerable "delivery fee" paid to you if you will simply work with me on this matter.

Please forward the item C.O.D. and I will pay you $10,000 upon delivery.

As I anticipate you will accept this offer please find a scan of the completed Change of Ownership form.

Chris:

Here is my problem.  I have no idea who you or your "company" are.  I am not inclined to send you almost $3000.00 with no assurance that you are a legitimate entity.  For all I know, you could simply be some kid who is proficient with Photoshop and who sits in a cyber cafe helping people run scams (I have heard of such things happening before).

I may come from a long line of inbred Irish contortionists, but I am no fool.  I did not climb to the title of CEO here at Widgit2ya, Inc. by making stupid decisions.

I need something to let me know you are for real.  Please send me a letter of authenticity on your company letterhead so that I can submit same to the proper authorities in Abidjan should this deal prove to be a fraud.  Attached to this letter I want your photograph so that I can identify you as a party should a lawsuit prove necessary.  And, I do not want some random photograph, I want it to be of you.  To guarantee that the photograph is of you I want you to hold a piece of paper or a sign with the words:

QUARRYMEN #1

This phrase will serve as our password in the future so that I know that our dealings are legitimate and that I am in fact dealing directly with you and not someone who has simply used your e-mail account.

Once I have been provided the letter and photograph I will send payment via Western Union.

I know this may be a nuisance but it is absolutely necessary.  You see, I have a solemn duty to protect the interests of Mosees Nkusu.  He will soon be my legally adopted son and I will not take any risk that would allow harm to befall his gentle head.

I look forward to receiving the letter and photograph.  Payment will be forthcoming.

Sincerely,

Flacid S. Willie

[NOTE – the “Quarrymen” were an early version of the Liverpool band that would later become “the Beatles”.  The “Quarrymen” is also the name of my fantasy football team.  If this works, I will have the greatest photo for my time web page!]

Dear Father,

 

I am happy to hear that you have resolved the issue with the security company. It has being raining very heavily here that I cannot go out for now. The rain is not good for my illhealth but as soon as it stops, I will go to the security company to asceratin that everything is in order and ensure that the rest of the arrangements towards carrying the box to you will be completed. in fact, I am very grateful to you for your sincere efforts and concern to help me out of my predicament. God in his infinite mercy and grace will also bless and reward you abundantly.

 

I will get back to you as soon as I come back from the security company later today. Please, I did not get the phone you sent. I am surprised you wrote to have sent it as it was agreed that we should forget baout it since there has being an good alternative to get the fund secured out of here. Please how did you send it? Get back to you later.

 

Yours son,

Mosees.

 

[Well crap, what was I thinking telling him I sent the phone, I can never prove that.  Time for some quick thinking]

Sweet Fancy Mosees:

I am sorry if my last e-mail confused you, I mis-typed my message.  I did not actually send you the telephone.  I sent a photo of the phone I purchased, it is blue.  Since it will be at least a few days before your arrival I wanted to know if you would like a different color.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hungry like the wolf,

Flacid Willie

[That should cover my tracks.  Now let’s just sit back and see if these fish are still on the line]

 

 

11/14/03- Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear father,

 

I have gone to the security company and met with the operaion manager. He clearly told me that you did not send the money to effect the change of ownership but instead was trying to negociate with them to bring the box to you in U.S for you to pay $10,000. He stressed to me that in as much as your proposed is good to him, it is not within his power to accept such since part of the money will go directly to the ministry of justice and part to the security company and the lawyer. He bluntly told me that your idea was not possible for him.

 

Please father, I feel very bitter about this development. I am very sick and wanted your foreign aid to save my life and secure my heritance from here. I have made you to understand how difficult this french people are. Please you should not do this to me. I personall believe well that you have  nothing to loose for you to pay the security company the fee so that they can effect the change and uplift the box to you. I cannot go about exposing myself to everybody in order to get help. I might end up falling into the wrong hand just as I nearly fell into the hands of one Italian when I newly entered into this country. The man demanded for 50% as his commisison but I was scared of my little knowledge about the Italians. I will really like to settle in the U.S. Please for God's sake, do not decline your help from me. Try and send the money to the security company for them to accomplish the rest of the process. The political crises in this country worsens every day. I beg you in God's name to come to my rescue and God shall bless you for doing so. I am confused now and really feel like the whole world is clamping down on me. May be committing suicide will end this all.

 

Mosees.

 

[I am just going to ignore that suicide comment, it is clearly being used to push me to action]

 

11/14/03 – Mosees to Flacid

 

Dear Father,

I did not see the photo of the mobile as you said . Please what is the status with the security company? Have you sent the form and the money to them? I went there two times this afternoon but could not meet the operation manager. I am afraid this might not be completed before the end of this week. I hope you really intend to help me save my life and secure my heritance. Please do not forsake me. My continous stay here in this country is not safe me for me at all. There is serious political crises going on here presently and this could possibly lead to war as it did in my country. My life is in jeopardy here and I muich regret the death of my parents. If only they have being alife, all this would not have befallen me. Death has being very wicked to me. The evil death that respects nobody. I have trusted and put my hopes to revamp my life and secure my heritance through you. God will bless and reward your efforts assist me in this transaction. Please be my all and all despi te or racial and nationality difference.

I have tried mcuh in vain to call you on phone. The phone always enters into answering machine each time I dial your number. And unfortunately I do not have a phone for you to call me on. This has really made comunication difficult for us. I feel very bitter and anguish. please for God's sake, wipe away my tears from my eyes. This will be more of blessings to you. I always to onto you for my rescue.

Yours worriedly,

Mosees.

[I checked the voice mail and Mosees did Not call.  Lying bastard]

Dear father,

 

I have heard what you said. I understood your fear. Please be assured that the security company is existing and it is with them, the box was deposited by my late father before his death. I wish you had come here as earlier proposed. I have gone there to see  them to let them know that you are expecting to have an information from them but the security man refused my entry saying that they were in a board meeting. I noticed that they were quite working

 as I saw the  private cars of the workers including that of the operation manager (a red Nissan blue bird) May be the old idiot wanted some tip from me. I hope that by Monday, they will send whatever information you required and I will go there myself on Monday. I am really worried for this delay but will patiently wait until Monday. However I remain quite appreciative to your sincere concern and the diplomatic way with which you have handled my situation. I thank you very much and hope that by Monday, or shall be accomplished. I cannot wait to meet you in Person. I am greatly looking forward to this day. I continue to wish you a nice and pleasant weekend until Monday next week.

Yours son,

Mosees.

[clever how Mosees mentions the same “board meeting” decribed by Chris Dialo]

I believe it may be time to draw this to a close.  These guys are, quite frankly, too easy.

Chris & Mosees:

Good afternoon my persistent African pen pals.  I am writing to tell you that I really need to cut off all future communications.  I really need to get some real work done before I lose my job.  Of course, if I did lose my job I would simply find another honest source of employment and would not resort to e-mailing ridiculous 419 scams.  That is where you and I differ.

Seriously guys, you both seem to be fairly intelligent with a pretty good grasp on the English language.  There must be some legitimate work for you, even in a backwater country like the Ivory Coast (if that is where you are).

Mosees, in the future do not offer to move to another country and live with someone before you have been asked.  First off it's creepy.  Secondly, you may end up in the bottom of a well while Buffalo Bill screams at you to put lotion on your body so he can make a Mosees body suit (for more information regarding this possible outcome please rent "Silence of the Lambs", or even better buy a black market copy on the streets of Abidjan).

Chris, get people's name correct.  My name is not "Placid" it is "Flacid".  However, that of course is not my real name.  Someday you might get the joke.  I doubt it.

Please, consider giving up the scamming business.  You are not good at this, seriously.

Thanks for the photographs. I will save them for when I need a good laugh.

With warm regards and a laugh at your expense,

Flacid Softe Willie, AKA the "Q-MAN"

THE END?
