AMANDA RECKON WITH


Rabbi Ben Zona, star of many scam-o-tales, reached into his pile of scrolls and sent this gem from the archives. It spanned eight months.

I never really figured out what Amanda's scam was. It was really all over the place, so I didn't spend too much time thinking about it. In any case, I introduced Owata Dikedjua - say it out loud, slowly - to kill it off for me as I just lost patience with this one. As I do with most of them.

Dear reader, if you stumbled into this wing of the scam-o-mansion and don't grasp how the scam operates - the (intended) scam was this:
1. we want to send you money
2. there's paperwork
3. it costs, so send money
4. at which point we melt away (or coax more money out of you)
5. only they were wasting their time with the Rabbi!

The Rabbi's many adventures include A Bit of Botha, SPURIOUS, CIRCUMSPECTION, IF THE FALAFEL LOOK LIKE GOLD and FAMILY PLOT.

My dear Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona ,

Good day,thanks so much for your reply and the contents therein are well understood precisely.

Be inform that i have no father,mother ,brothers and sisters any longer on earth,all of them was killed in my home country during a communal clashes.After the unfotunate and untime death of my beloved families ,my so-called relatives gathered themselves together and seized all my father's properties from me in the name of African traditions.Also,they threatened to kill me as well for questioning the so-called rights and powers of the traditions over my own blood father's properties.

I have to secretly and quitely move away from my home country to Dakar-Senegal to arrange for immediate claims and transfer of our deposit fund outside African soil and also to leave this parts of the World for the rest of my life .

Non of my so-called relatives knows my present whereabouts and also non of them knows about the existence of our deposit fund in the security company here .I will like you to take me like one of your blood son and the same thing is also applicable to me as well to take you as my blood father in all our future business engagements with each other till death separates both of us.Also, i will like you to help me to go back to school in your country while you will take proper control and managements of all our future business.

I am currently residing in a refugee camps here in Dakar-Senegal and surviving with the little food United Nations(U.N) gives to refugees on daily basis .

My father was a well known diamonds merchants and he made the money from various sales of diamonds .He deposited the sum of Seven million United States dollars (USD$7.000.000.00)only in one of the security company here in Dakar-Senegal in the name of Diamonds while it is a life cash.The management of the security company does not know the exact texts of the deposit ,my father told them that the deposit contains diamonds because he used to deposit diamonds with them and they know him very well,so they made the deposit as diamonds while it is a cash.

Yes, you should invest it in your business ventures and manage it ..

You should tell me your own percentage for all your assistance whereas i am suggesting equal sharing of all our future profits after deducting all the expenses or payment of workers.

1) My dear Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona ,i will need your presence here in Dakae-Senegal to see,witness and also handle the claims and subsequent transfer of our deposit fund to your country successfully .It will take us just two(2)days only ,the day of your arrival and the following day both of us will proceed on to the security company and claim our deposit,i cannot be able to claim it by myself because of my refugee status ,hence my contacting you .

2) Also, note that one of the prominent attorney here in Dakar-Senegal could represent you and also handle everything on your behalf if you cannot be able to come down here in Dakar-Senegal .I will be able to get contacts of one of the prominent attorney here and send to you so that both of you will discuss with each other .

Dear reader, the bit above is highlighted for the scam-o-challenged.
The paper work done by the imaginary attorney will cost you!

I sincerely believed that you have the powers ,ability and capacity to handle everything both here in Dakar-Senegal and also in your country ,also i believed that you have abundant experiences on the areas of investments in your country or any place of your choice and you will not cheat or betrayed me in all our future business engagements till death separates both of us from the surface of the earth .

I am waiting patiently and honestly for your respone while still counting on your unrelentless efforts,understanding,willingness,honesty ,moral and mutual cooperation so far geared towards successful and smoothful completion of our project soonest.

Have a nice day .
Best regards,
Amanda Seck .

Rabbi Ben Zona

Hello Amanda,

I have enough means to come to Senegal, but I'm also puzzled as to how you've found me exactly.

Do they have Internet connections in refugee camps?

If you give me your address, I can send you some food. My wife, Chaya Mushka is a wonderful cook, and already cooking for 17 children (the oldest 11 have moved out and have families of their own). We're happy to send you a care package of some cholent if you'd like. I don't know if she knows how to cook African food, but Chaya Mushka also has been cooking some Asian food. The only problem with Jewish-Chinese cooking is that in 48 hours you're hungry again.

OK! Let's get started then.

Dear Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona ,

You should take a form of $300.00 from the company to register your name. I wait for your response.

Amanda.

(huh?)

Rabbi Ben Zona

Hello, Amanda --

Excellent and sage advice. I have taken the company's registration form for $300. What next?

Sincerely,
Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona
Congregation Matzah Shemurah

(and I still have no idea what this means, or who I paid, or what it's for - doesn't matter really)

Amanda Seck

Dear Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona ,

You send the $300.00 by western union .

Send it with this name. MR.MESWAATHI EBOUNGE.
CITY DAKAR
COUNTRY SENEGAL .

SEND ALSO ,THE INFORMATION LIKE :-
1) CONTROL NUMBER OF TEN DIGITS.
2) TEXT QUESTION AND ANSWER.
3) SENDERS NAME ,ADDRESS,CITRY AND COUNTRY .

The name of the person in charge in the company is MR.MESWAATHI EBOUNGE.so send the money to him and send me the information to submite to the company to issue you the form.

Amanda.
Rabbi Ben Zona

Amanda,
Before I send any money, don't I need to fill in a registration form? And when do I start to invest?

Sincerely,
Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona
Congregation Matzah Shemurah

(of course Amanda was the one doing the investing, but sense has long left the building)

Amanda Seck

Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona,

You will send the money to get the form to send to you to fill.

You pay the money and get the form to fill from the company.

Go and send the money now before it becomes late.

Amanda.

Rabbi Ben Zona

Amanda,

I need to pay money to get the form? This is all very confusing. Remind me again what the form is for?

Sincerely,
Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona
Congregation Matzah Shemurah

Amanda Seck

Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona,

YES ,You need to pay the money to get the FORM .

That there is nothing confusing at all ,only that you failed to understand it. (ah.)

You pay the money and the form will be given to you to fill and submit back to the company as my only appointed and authorised partner to claim or receive our deposit fund from the management of the company and no any other person else whatsoever .Hoped this is very clear to you now. (shore is)

Do you agreed to take the form or not ???????.

Have a nice day,
Amanda.

Rabbi Ben Zona

CC: Owata Dikedjua (my Lagos-based "barrister", but of course)
Subject: my barrister will be in touch

Amanda,

Of course I want the form. This has become all too confusing, though. I retain the assistance of an African barrister, Barrister Owata Dikedjua who can handle the modalities from here on in.

You must admit, though, that to pay $300 for a blank form is a bit steep. Normally with application fees, the fee is connected to the application submission, rather than the form it's written on. But hey, you're smarter than I, so it's you that calls the shots.

I will get the $300 to Barrister Dikedjua, who will submit the payment to you. I look forward to receiving the form.

Sincerely,
Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona
Congregation Matzah Shemurah

Amanda Seck

Dr. Rabbi Ben Zona. If you mistakenly give your money to Barrister Owata Dikedjua ,you loose your money . (Always something to worry a scammer - losing their dupe to a competitor.)

That Barrister Owata Dikedjua is not a Nationality of Dakar-Senegal and as such he has no rights or powers to represent anyone here un Dakar=Senegal .

That the form ,would be notarised here by the counsel/lawyer of the fund company and also re-activate your appointment as my only appointed and authorised partner to claim our deposit fund from the company and no any other person else.

So,you better send the money as i told you and forget all about Barrister Owata Dikedjua as he cannot do nothing here. OR If you insists on him,you should better forget our project so that i look for another potential partner in your country to work with .

Have a nice day.

Amanda.
