AL BUNDY AMONG THE MUGUS

Dear Scamo,
After reading some of the wacky fun your Kindly Contributors
have had with all these Lads, I had to try it myself.
Here's the story of Al Bundy among the Mugus.

[ Worth reading to the end. Don't miss Al's true-false mugu questionnaire.
For those who have not wasted their precious hours watching American sit-coms,
Al Bundy is a character on a television show called "Married With Children".
He is not exactly America's best and brightest, but then neither is "Grote".
Anyway, he (in imagination land) gets up and goes to work every day and has an
honest job selling shoes, rather than scams. Grote's insults to Al's manhood
are a lucky shot in the dark.]

STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL & URGENT. 

I am Mr., M GROTE an Executive Accountant with the Department of finance of
mineral resources and energy South Africa.

Within the Department of finance where I work as an Executive Accountant and
with the cooperation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as
overdue payment bills totaling Twenty - One Million, Five Hundred Thousand U.
S. Dollars ($21,500,000.) which we want to transfer abroad. 

I have the authority of my partners involved to propose that should you be
willing to assist us in the transaction, your share of the sum will be 25% of
the $21.5 million, 70% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses.
The business itself is 100% safe, on your part provided you treat it with

Grote,

Let's get a few things straight.  I didn't get to be the Assistant Manager at
the third largest shoe store in the Great Northern Mall by being careless.  So
I know that you didn't come by this money honestly.  That's fine with me, as
long as I get my share.


I also know your situation is desperate.  Who knows when your contractors are
going to figure out that you've taken their money?  Then they'll come after you
with guns and machetes like I read about in America's number one source for
news and entertainment, Big'ns.  And they'll come after me next if you have my
fax and phone number that can be used to track me down.  So let's just
communicate this way, thank you very much.


Also, I think 25% for me is too low for this kind of transaction.  I want 35%
plus whatever is left of the 5% set aside for expenses when the business is
concluded.  That leaves you with 60%, which is $12,900,000.  If you don't
agree, then the deal is off.  I have another offer from the beautiful wife of
General Jonas Savimbi which looks equally attractive - and she has offered me
35%.


That being said, what do we need to do next?


Your friend for life,

Al Bundy

***I edited out about 80% of the jibber jabber . it.s a form letter, except

30% plus the expense money.

Thank you very much for your reply and I am very happy at the way you are
handling it so far, which I must say reassures me of your confidence in the
transaction. I have critically read your mail very well and the contents have
been well understood as you well know time is not on our side any more and all
we are doing is to conclude as fast as possible the transaction. We have
accepted to offer you 30% plus whatever is left of the 5% set aside for
expenses when the business is concluded because of the moral and financial
Contribution that is required of you, please note that your financial
involvement shall only be required after the reserve bank of south Africa must
have approved the fund release order and the approvals faxed to you. Finally, I
will join you on phone later in the day for further explanations.

WHEN ALL THE DOCUMENTS ARE READY ON YOUR NAME.  I WANT US TO MEET FACE TO FACE

Dear Grote,

Here are the papers you requested on my "company letterhead."  Of course I
can't have $21.5MM deposited into my U.S. account or the IRS will begin asking
some tough questions.  


When I get to Amsterdam, I am sure you can assist me in opening an account
there for immediate deposit of the funds.  Then we can wire the money to an
account in Switzerland or Wyoming where the government cannot trace it and make
us pay taxes.  Brilliant, isn't it?

What are you going to do with your share?  If you still want ideas on investing
it, I have a brother-in-law who has an ostrich ranch where we can grow our
millions quicker than you can imagine.  Ostrich meat and eggs sell for
outrageous prices here.  American cowboys pay high prices for ostrich-skin
boots.  Nothing gets wasted except the guts and bones.  Are you interested in
this venture?  With that much money we can become the biggest ostrich ranchers
in America!


I am also working on some other investment schemes.


Your brother for life,

Al

Dear Brother Grote,

Thanks for your message.  I was getting worried again since it has been a week
since your last communication.  I am afraid that your contractors are going to
notice their money is missing and come after us.  The first month of the year
is when most companies do their final accounting for the past year. How long
will it be until these people notice that $21,500,000 is missing?


How much does George Smith know about this business?  What should I tell him if
he asks about what we're doing?  Do you know him personally?  How do you know
he's trustworthy?  


You haven't done much to reassure me about this deal.  I don't want to end up
in a mess of trouble.  Please tell me about the precautions you are taking to
protect us from your contractors and from the authorities.


If we are going to be partners, we should also be friends.  That's the American
way.  Please tell me about yourself.  Are you married...with children?  How old
are you?  What are your interests?  Do you like cheese?  I look forward to
hearing from you.

ATTN:Al Bundy,

Thank you also for your response to my mail.I want you to know that this fund

contact payment has been paid to the original contractors.This contract in
question has since been executed.We were able to overinvoice the contract due
to our position in the office.Note that the original contractors has no say in
this issue.

Mr George Smith is the payment coodinator of the South Africa offshore payment
center FOUNTAIN TRUST FINANCE AMSTERDAM.Their duty is to make offshore payments
to contractors after receiving directives from the Reserve Bank of South
Africa.,Mr George Smith does not have any right to ask you any question
regarding what you are doing.We made every documents available on your name as
the beneficiary of the fund.Mr George Smith has received an instruction from
the Reservebank of South Africa to release the fund to you without delay only
on the ground that you pay the administrative fee required to sign for the
release of the fund into your account.


If Mr George Smith is not trustworthy,

1,He would have not been an official of the South African Government offshore
payment center[FOUNTAIN TRUST FINANCE AMSTERDAM]


2,He would have not received an advice from the Reserve Bank of South
Africa,the umbrella body of all financial institution in South Africa.


On a serious note,i want you to know that everything needed for the success of
this business is already in place,so note that you are not getting into any
mess.

Dear Mr. Smith,

Mr. Fortune M. Grote has advised me to contact you relating to a business deal
we are pursuing.  I will assume that Mr. Grote has provided you with the
information and documents that will enable you to move this business forward.

Please contact me by return e-mail.


Al Bundy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Dear Brother Grote,

Thanks for your message and for the information about you and your family.  I
am also married with children.  I have two teenagers, son Bud and daughter
Kelly.  Both are ready for college, so I need to add more money to the college
funds we've been saving since they were born.  I'm 45 years old and my
specializations are quality footwear and retail management.


Attached is a photo of me with the Heisman Trophy which was awarded to me for
being the Most Valuable Player on my high school football team.


Now that we know each other better, I am willing to give you my telephone
number.  But I don't want you to use it except in an emergency.  My wife Peg is
always in the house and she is very nosy.  She often berates me for my
moneymaking schemes and calls me foolish.  We'll show her who's foolish, won't
we?  If she catches me taking calls from foreigners about a confidential
business deal, she will put a stop to the deal.  So if you ever call - and I
hope you don't - and a female voice answers, hang up immediately.  If she hears
someone with a funny accent asking for me, she'll queer the whole deal for us.

Also, since this money is stolen - you can call it what you want, overpaid
contracts or whatever - I do not want there to be any record of any unusual
phone calls at this time.  I hope you understand this.


The phone number is xxx-xxx-xxxx.  Please do not use it unless absolutely
necessary and don't give it to anyone else.

Today I received another message from George Smith.  He is asking for a lot of
personal information.  I will provide what I can and hope it is enough.


What are you going to do with your share of this money?  What about your
partners?  Will you come to live in America - land of the free and home of the
Braves?


Send me your picture.  If you have a photo of your family, send it and I'll
send you one of mine.

Your friend for life.

Dear Mr. Smith,

Thanks for your message.  Mr. Grote has advised me that you are trustworthy and
dependable, so I will provide as much information as I can at this time.  I
hope you will find it sufficient for this transaction:

1. Name:  Alvin C. Bundy III

   Identification: Social Security number: xxx-xx-xxxx

   Drivers License: Illinois number xxxxxxxx, valid through April 2004

   Birth Certificate: Cook County number xxxxxxxx, dated April 19,1957

    On file at Cook County Courthouse

2. Passport:  U.S.A. number xxxxxxxx.  (Note: State Department warnings state
that it is unadvisable to send passport images or details overseas by fax or
e-mail, so I cannot comply with your request for a scanned image.)

3. Bank Account:  Mr. Fortune M. Grote is to assist me in opening a bank
account upon my arrival in Amsterdam.  It would be inadvisable for my company
to accept the funds into a U.S. account.

4. Last approval from Bank of South Africa - please contact Mr. Grote for this
document.

 

Regarding the $4,500 for stamp duties, I will bring cash when I travel to
Amsterdam to meet with you and Mr. Grote.  You are unknown to me, so I feel
better delivering this sum in the presence of my partner Mr. Grote.

 

My telephone number is xxx-xxx-xxxx.  Please do not use it except in the case
of an absolute emergency.  Do not discuss this business with anyone else who
answers.  For business and tax purposes, there must be no record of
international calls to this number.  Perhaps Mr. Grote can explain this to you.
 Indiscreet use of this phone may result in my inability to participate in this
transaction.

 

Sincerely,

Al Bundy

 

***Oh, gee willikers, I don.t know about this Smith.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Brother Grote,

I have replied to Mr. Smith's message, but I am still worried about him.  He
has asked me to send him 4,500 Euros by Western Union.  I know that it is never
advisable to wire money to strangers.  I believe he thinks I'm stupid.  Well
I'm not.  I'm smart.


Do you think we can handle this with cash upon my arrival in Amsterdam?  Also,
can you assist me in opening a bank account there?  I don't want to accept this
money into a U.S. bank account for obvious reasons.  The best way will be to
transfer the funds directly from a new account in Amsterdam to an account in
Switzerland or Wyoming where the money will be safe from questioning
authorities and tax collectors.

I gave Smith my phone number and now I'm having second thoughts about that.  He
was very forward about demanding money for "stamp duties", whatever that means.
 I hope he doesn't do something stupid to cause my wife to become suspicious. 
Please warn him to be discreet.  I have a very bad feeling about this Smith.


Your friend for life,

whatever they say because they represent the South Africa Reserve Bank,they are
incharge of any payment from Africa.So i beleive they have a laid down

Mr Grote

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Dear Mr. Grote,

Here is a copy of the message I sent to Mr. Smith.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

***I just pasted in my latest message to Smith, which Grote has certainly seen,
since he or someone at the next booth in the internet caf or sweat shop he
operates from is Smith.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Grote,

My accountant Mr. Jefferson Darcy has advised me against wiring any money
overseas to a stranger I have never met.  I must agree with him.  Mr. Smith's
messages are not friendly and I do not think he has our best interests in mind.
 He is a minor bureaucrat in his organization and I believe he will try to take
advantage of us for his own personal gain.  I have heard of evil bankers who
steal from their clients.  He has not explained these "stamp duties" beyond
naming some obscure capital flight regulation which probably doesn't even apply
in this case.

I can see only 3 options here:

1.  Have Fountain Trust Finance deduct the 4,500 Euros from the transfer.  If
they require a small premium for advancing this money, we should allow that.

2.  Carry out this transaction in person with cash upon my arrival in
Amsterdam.

3.  Since you and your partners are going to get over 60% of the money when
this deal is done, why don't you send the 4,500 Euros?  After all, since I am
providing an outlet for this money as a "contractor", but you are getting most
of the money.

There are unscrupulous people who will try to take our money.  There are also
those contractors who overpaid and will undoubtedly soon discover their
mistakes.  And of course there are the legal and tax authorities who will cause
endless trouble for us if we're discovered.  You don't seem very worried about
these people, but I am.  


Maybe you have never been outside of Africa and seen the Modern World.


In America and Europe, because of all the terrorism and corporate scandals that
have occurred in the past couple of years, law enforcement and corporate
accounting officials are more vigilant than ever.  The CIA monitors
international phone calls and banking transactions.  Believe me when I say that
those people play for keeps.

We must be very careful and protect ourselves from those who will try to do us
harm, my brother.  

Your friend for life,

Al

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Attention George Smith,

I look forward to meeting you.  Please provide complete information relating to
each of the following points:

1.  Name and location of the hotel where you have made a reservation for me. 
Also confirmation number of the reservation.

2.  Exchange rate Euros vs. U.S. dollar so that I can bring the correct amount
of U.S. dollars.  I assume U.S. dollars willbe suitable for this transaction

3.  Name and photo of the person who will pick me up at the airport when I
arrive.

4.  Complete details of "every laid down procedure of the financial
institution."

***Let.s make Grote do a little tap dance.

 

Dear Grote,

Now I have received another message from Smith.  He is now demanding that I
bring a total of 12,000 Euros.

He says that 4,500 Euros are for "account opening for the transfer."  I think
he is a thief - earlier he wanted the same amount for "stamp duties."  This
smells very fishy.

Now he wants me to bring another 7,500 Euros for "administrative fees",
whatever that means.

I will be able to bring the money, but I think he is trying to rip me off.  I
have read stories about crooked Europeans who invent fees and charges to take
advantage of unsuspecting foreigners and I think he is one of these people.

Raising the money is difficult, but possible.  I can borrow it from my daughter
Kelly's college savings.  She is entering the University of Montana next fall
to begin her studies in nucular engineering.  So this money must be returned
the college fund account immediately.  Otherwise she will not be able to attend
and my wife Peg will be very upset with me - probably will divorce me as she
has threatened many times.  What do you think of this?

Grote my brother and friend for life, you must assure me that there is no
chance that this deal will fall through and ruin my family.  Please respond.  I
am thinking that I am better off woth out taking chances with the future of my
beautiful daughter and my marriage.
 

Please help me!!!!!!!!!!

ATTN:AL BUNDY,


How are you my brother and friend for life,it is really good hearing from
you.To my understanding,he said 4,500euro is for account opening.

I remember in my second email to you,i made you to understand that you will be
required as the beneficiary to sign out the fund with an administrative fee,so
i will not be surprised hearing that.

I want you to know that as far as am concerned,this business is genuine and i
promise you that everything will workout fine.I want you to keep every record
of all your expenses you may incure in this business as we shall reimburse you
all at the end of the business.

I give you a guarantee that we will conclude this business successfully.I
sicerely wish i could give you a call to personally talk with but if not
possible,i look forward to our meeting in Holland.

I hope to leave South Africa by Tuesday 29/01/2003.

 

Hope to hear from you soon.

Regards,

Mr Grote

 

***Well, that explains it.  Grote is a standup guy, but I.m still worried about
this Smith.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Dear Brother Grote,

Thanks for your reassuring reply.  I want to go ahead with our plan, but only
if Smith provides complete answers to ALL of my concerns.  He doesn't seem to
care about anything except getting my money.

I don't believe he will actually make a hotel reservation for me - so I am
going to check with the hotel before I leave.  Also, he has not agreed to pick
me up at the airport.  Maybe he prefers that I take the risk of hiring a
stranger to drive me and my money to the hotel.

And you are wrong about his demand for money.  Here are his exact words from
his message dated Friday, January 17.  "This money will enable us to pay for
STAMP DUTIES for your approved documents as it is in agreement with sub section
243 of the offshore payment laws of the EEC and the world bank capital flight
regulatory act of 1973 between south Africa and the Netherlands government that
before any payment of such magnitude, approvalpermission must be received from
the ministry of justice within the control territories."

Now he says the 4,500 Euros are for "payment for account opening for the
transfer."  Well, which is it?  I say neither. He is making this crap up as he
goes along.  Why does it cost 4,500 Euros to open an account?  I have had
several bank accounts, but never paid a single penny to open any of them.  One
bank even gave us a free toaster.  Will Smith's bank give me a toaster?  I
doubt it.

You better communicate with him and get this straightened out because I won't
risk the money from Kelly's college savings on this type of criminal behavior. 
Copy me on your communications with him so I know what is going on. 

This has me very upset and my wife is getting suspicious.  She says I seem
tense and cranky.  All she knows is that I am going on a "business trip."  She
thinks I'm planning to go to a footwear convention. 

If I don't get good complete answers from him and see how well you straighten
him out, I think I will go to the convention instead.  I'm not dumb.  I'm
smart. 

You better watch Smith closely.  I tell you Grote, he is going to try to steal
our money with his evil tricks.

Your friend for life,

Al

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Dear Grote,

Mr. Smith answered my message by saying he has made a hotel reservation and
that "MR. PROTOCOL OFFICER" will pick me up at the airport, whatever that
means.


He has completely ignored my other concerns.  I require complete and clear
answers to them.  Otherwise I will not waste my time and money on a wild goose
chase.  I need to know:

1.  Name and photo of the person who will pick me up at the airport when I
arrive.  Mr. Protocol Officer is not someone's name.  I'm not flying to another
country to be met by someone who can't even give his name and photo.

2.  COMPLETE details of "every laid down procedure of the financial
institution."  I do not want any surprises when I get there, so he better spell
it all out.

3.  Are the 4,500 Euros for "stamp duties" or "account opening for the
transfer"?  Why would anyone have to pay a bank any money at all, let alone
thousands in order to open an account into will be placed millions of dollars?

4.  Exactly what are the "administrative fees" that amount to $7,500 Euros?  He
better not send me another bulls__t answer.

 

I tell you Grote, this Smith is a lying thief.  He wants to take our money. 
And not just my daughter Kelly's college money - he will try to take our
millions, too.  He thinks you and I are dumb.  We must show him we're smart.

 

Grote, I am leaving this in your hands - you make sure Smith replies to me
honestly and completely on these items.  My plane is scheduled to leave
tomorrow afternoon, but I can reschedule or cancel my trip and I will do that
if he doesn't stop with his arrogant non-answers. 

 

Why don't you meet me at the airport?  I will feel more comfortable with
someone I can trust than some nameless stranger.  Think about it.

Your partner and friend for life,

Al

ATTN:MR AL BUNDY,

I have really been waiting for your response,thank God i finally heard from you.
Note that you are the rightful beneficiary of the Fund,as a result of these,you 
reserve the right to ask Mr Smith whatsoever you want to ask him,or if there is 
any area you do not understand,it will be better you direct it straight to him.
I am not in a position to all that you are requesting for.If you need a photo of 
the person that will pick you up from the airport,you should better address the 
matter to him.

you do not have to leave it in my hands because you should be able to talk with 
MR Smith on your area of disagrement.

Note that we are at the peak of this business,at this stage i think you should 
agree to anything Mr Smith is saying untill we meet with him in Holland then he 
can give us a detailed explanation.I have also booked my flight to live tomorrow 
but i have to be sure of our meeting.You have to guaranttee me that you shall 
leave for Holland tomorrow as well.I want you to live everything to me.I shall 
personally talk with Mr Smith in Holland.

Kindly comfirm to me the Hotel he has reserved for you so that i can meet you there.
I also want to know if you will be having a mobil phone that i can reach you in 
Holland because i shall go along with my mobil phone to buy a sim card on my arrival.

You should please tell Mr Smith to give you the name of the person that will pick 
you from the airport.

If not that you have asked me not to call you because of your wife,i would have 
loved to call you at this time because it is extremely important for me to give 
you a call now but i will not until you ask me to.I prefer to talk with you now 
on phone rather email.

Mail me soon.

Mr Grote.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Dear Friend Fortune Grote,

My advice to you would be to wait.  I have sent a message to Smith again asking
for a decent reply, but I don't think he'll give satisfactory answer in time
for my departure.  Sorry I forgot to copy you.  Here is the message I sent him
a few minutes ago:

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Smith,

Thanks for making the hotel reservation.  My plane is scheduled to leave
tomorrow afternoon, but I am having serious doubts about this trip.

--------------------------------------------------------------

(Text from above message to Smith)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Grote, now we will see if he is as honest as you think he is.

 

He said he made a reservation for me at the Mercure Hotel.  He did not send a
conformation number as I requested, so I sent a message to the hotel
(H1244@accor-hotels.com) asking if they have a reservation for me.  If he
didn't, then we'll know Smith is a liar.  I'll let you know when I get a reply
from the hotel.

i will know how authentic it is.


Please in want you to exercise patient in everything that is happening now,we

Since you have postponed your trip,i have to postpone mine as well till that

***Okay, Grote, calm down and think of that lovely money.

 
Dear Brother Grote,

It is good to hear from you also my friend and I look forward to meeting you in
Holland.  We will have a grand time there when we conclude this business.

I can bring a mobil phone - I will borrow the one I got for my son Bud.  But I
don't think it will work on a foreign country.  What is this sim card you
mentioned?  Maybe I should get one of those instead.


The earliest I can go is next Sunday, arriving Monday morning on KLM flight 612
at 7:20 a.m.  I have changed my plane ticket accordingly.


I have gotten the money together.  The exchange rate today for Euros is 1 Euro
= US$1.08, so I am going to bring US$14,000 to cover the transaction fees. 
That should leave a little extra for celebrating. 


Mr. Smith is demanding an apology, but I will not give him one.  I strongly
recommend that you demand that we be given someone else to deal with.  Smith
should apologize to me - he lied about the hotel reservation and would have
left me without a place to sleep in a strange city.  I would like to smack him
upside the head for that.

 

See you next Monday!

***Let.s throw in another monkey wrench or three.


Dear Grote,

Thanks for the good news.  I was sure you could get that fool Smith out of our
hair.  I'm sure Mr. Williams will be much better to deal with.
I'll be staying at the Mercure Hotel Amsterdam aan de Amstel.  I recommend that
you make a reservation there also.  I'll forward you their contact information.


Now I have good news for you.  My two brothers and a friend will be
accompanying us as bodyguards.  They are all large and athletic like me.  Now
you and I will have excellent protection just in case anyone tries any monkey
business.  I doubt it will be necessary, but it is best to be prepared
foranything.  Don't you agree.


Don't worry - I did not tell them about the details of our business.  I only
told them that I'll be involved in a transaction for which I'll have to carry a
large amount of cash on my person.  I have agreed to pay their expenses, but we
can deduct that from our 5% expense fund.


We are all looking forward to this trip.   My brothers and friend are big party
animals.  After we conclude our business with Fountain Trust, we will all be
ready to relax and enjoy a couple of wild celebration in Amsterdam!  So get
ready to party, my new brother.  This is going to be more fun than you can

ATTN:AL BUNDY,

How are you my friend.It's always really nice hearing from you.I hope Mr
Williams will be a better option compare to Mr Smith.

I do not really think we need any body guards.Beleive that nothing is going to
happen and nobody is going to try any nonsense with us.I beleive you and i are
enough to sort ourselves out or don't you agree.Going with bodyguards may be an
extra expenses.

I really look forward to meeting you in amsterdam.

Regards,

Mr Grote

***Get ready to party, Mr. Grote!  Money is no object.

 

Dear Brother,

Thanks for your message.  We are going to have a celebration that you won't
believe!


I am not worried about the expenses for my brothers and our friend.  The
expenses all come from my end, remember?  They amount to nothing compared to
the $8,000,000 that I will have by this time next week.  Besides, these are my
brothers and our best friend.  There is nobody, even you, that I trust more
thatn these good men.  Now you and I will be well protected while we carry out
our business.  Then we will have the wildest time imaginable.


Sometimes I think you are naive when it comes to Europeans.  Now we will be
prepared for any kind of tricks.  Better yet, if there are no tricks, we
willhave a great time - these guys will wear you out with their partying.  Just
wait my friend!


We are all looking forward to best days of our lives!

Your friend for life,

Al

Dear Brother Grote,

That's great news!  When does your flight arrive?  When and where should we
meet?  I think we should get together for a meal and some discussions among
ourselves before we go to meet with Mr. Williams at Fountain Trust.  As I
mentioned before, let's make sure we're prepared for anything.

Your friend for life,

Al

Dear Mr. Williams,

Thanks for your kind message.  I look forward to meeting you.  Please send your
reply to the following matters:

1.  Can you send someone to the airport Monday morning to pick up 4 of us who
will be traveling together?  We'll be arriving on KLM fright 612 at 7:20 a.m.

2.  Have you set a time for our appointment?  May I suggest 3:00 p.m. on Monday
or else sometime Tuesday morning?

I was pleased to learn that Smith has been suspended.  He is unfriendly and I
suspect him of dishonesty.  May I suggest that you get your own e-mail addrsss?
 Your message arrived with the header saying "From: George Smith
fountaintrust@zwallet.com".  Using his name and address may be reflect badly
on you and your company.

I am not fully aware fo the requirements for this transaction.  That was one of
the problems I had with your man Smith.  He demanded money, but he did not
offer any satisfactory explanations for his demands.  Maybe you can explain the
"stamp duties", "account opening for the transfer" and "administrative fees".

 

Thanks and kindest regards,

Al Bundy

***Time to let the nice people at the hotel off the hook.  Maybe they can help
round up some of these varmints.


To: Hotel Mercure Amsterdam aan de Amstel

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please cancel the reservations for Al Bundy.  I regret any inconvenience this
has caused.  The person who originally made the reservation for Al Bundy is a
scam artist - at least he thinks he is - who believes a person named Al Bundy
is coming from America with about $13,000 in cash to hand over to him for stamp
duties, account opening charges and administrative fees in connection with a
fraud scheme supposedly involving millions of dollars.

Of course this is not going to happen.  There is no Al Bundy. The "scam artist"
has been tricked into believing that Al is going to arrive Monday morning on
KLM flight 612 at 7:20 a.m.

My suggestion to you would be to immediately contact the branch of your justice
department which investigates fraud.  They might want to send someone to your
hotel to pose as Al Bundy and see if anyone calls or comes around looking for
him.  

The police might also want to send someone to the airport because the "scam
artist" has agreed to send someone to meet Al upon his arrival.  Whoever is
waiting for Al will be part of the fraud team or will be able to lead
authorities to them.

The authorities may find an opportunity to arrest and imprison or deport a
foreign criminal living in your country illegally for the purpose of committing
what is known as "advance fee fraud".


Thanks and regards,

"Al Bundy"

***I hope someone wasted a nice morning waiting for me at the airport.  Here.s
a parting shot.  It.s been fun.


Dear Grote,

It.s been a pleasure dealing with you.  Sorry I couldn.t make it to Amsterdam

you cannot even be honest with yourself.

 

Thanks for taking this test.  I hope you.ll find it less of a waste of time
than the rest of our correspondence has been.

Your friend for life,

Al Bundy

knows fully well that you are a fool and there is no work in you.


To show that you are the really mugu,so you beleive we actually paid for the
reservation,it's a free reservation.

Do you also beleive that experience people like us will waste time to go to the
airport very earlier,leaving my wife on the bed.

If you call me mugu,you are a maga.A reall maga.


For you information,i am there in your country,i send you all the mails there
in your backyard.You should be a fool be beleiving that someone waited for you
in the airport.


1,you are a maga. right or wrong?

2,you are a maid to your wife.rigth or wrong?

3,you live on your wives earning.right or wrong.

4,you are a fool? right or wrong.

If you are a whiteman,beleive that you a fool because all whites are fools and
greedy people who wants to collect money which they do not keep.


In fucked your wife and your mother yesterday.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Maybe I can pump him for some information, get inside his sick little head.

 

Dear Grote,

Okay, so now we've tricked each other and traded insults.  Maybe now we can be
friends.  I remember when I was a boy, if I had a fight with another boy, we
always became friends afterwards.


Tell me, why do you do this sort of business?  I think it must be hard to find
a good job, so you turned to this as a way to support your family.  But do you
like doing it now, or would you rather have a real job?


Do you make much money at it?  Do you feel bad for the people who lose their
money?


I imagine that you must be part of a group, you in Africa, probably with others
working for a boss who gets e-mail lists, maybe supervises several of you and
pays you a commission.  And I guess that there are other people working the
other end of the deal in Amsterdam.


Do you know that you have a lot of competitors?  The letters you send are very
similar to many others I've seen.  There are many variations, but the general
idea is that the sender has millions of dollars and he needs someone to help
him get it out of the country.  The money is allegedly in some account or with
a security company and there are fees and demurrage charges to be paid.  You
must find greedy or desperate people who think they can get something for
nothing. 

Of course, my name isn't Al Bundy.  He's a character on a popular American
television show called Married With Children.  And I know that your real name
isn't Grote.  But I think we should stick with these names.  I don't want you
knowing who I am anymore than you want me knowing who you are.
 

I hope you can find a job that will make you and your family feel proud.

Keep in touch.  I'll be glad to answer your questions about my life or my
country.

 

Regards,

"Al"

 

P.S.  I hope you don't really think all whites are fools.  There are plenty of
fools of all races, but most people are good, don't you agree?
