Sir Charles Farnes-Barnes
My Dear Child,

What trunk box are you talking about? You did not mention anything about a trunk box in your previous e-mail. I do hope that Sister Trumble is wrong and that you are not one of these scammers trying to obtain money from this charity.

I am sure you would not wish to trick The Holy Bagel Community about which I now give you some further information:

The Holy Bagel Community was established by Pastor Cecil Ngoblah in 1979 to cater for the material, moral and spiritual needs of young African students and workers living in Europe. Although donations were received from several African states, the Community was beset by financial problems until 1998 when a student from Zambia - who at the time was renting a room in the Community's London hostel - won £9.5 million in the British National Lottery.
The student [who wishes to remain anonymous] donated £1.5 million to Pastor Ngoblah and thanks to some wise investments the Community now owns hostels in London, Manchester and Paris and maintains a fund for indigents and charitable causes throughout Africa.
Any African of whatever race, colour or nationality may apply for assistance in the form of a loan or outright gift. All applications should be sent to Sister Sunny Trumble at the above address or by e-mail to: Sister Trumble at the above address and telephone number or via e-mail at xxxxxxxxxxxx

Father Farnes-Barnes left the office to attend a retreat at Bishop Graham-Norton's mansion in Ireland. He will return on Monday evening when I am sure he will reply to your e-mail.

With kind regards,

Sister Sunny Trumble

Dear Miss Ange,

I received this e-mail just minutes after sending you a reply to your previous note.

As I said in this e-mail, as Father Charles and Sister Sunny are in Haiti, I will deal with this matter when you send me details of anything you require of The Holy Bagel Community.

Dearest Sister Nedla Lockshen,

Thanks so much for your mail, I saw your mail that Father Charles Farnes Barnes and sister Sunny Trumble as flow to Haiti, It is my pleasure to hear this and show that they also care for others in the trouble area, also stress there life for others too. I pray for them that may the almighty Lord be with them on there mission and protect them.
Yes I know Didier Drogba is football in this country but I donŐt know him as a person and we have no relationship, I only see on television here.
Since you have access to this email I know you are aware of my communication with father. According to the lawyer that I gave the paper of legalization to do it request for the identification of Father or any identification paper so that he could legalize the affidavit. That is all I need for now and I will take care of the payment of the processing here.
Sister I will be expecting to ready from you soon
Sincerely yours sister in Christ
Ange

My Dear Child,

Father Farnes-Barnes has spoken to me from Haiti. Our funds are running low and we have only US $3.5 in our accounts,

Therefore we need to act on your proposal immediately. I have not heard from you for some days - is there anything I can do to speed up the process to transfer your treasure box out of the Ivory Coast?

Dear Sister Nelda,
How are you, thanks for your letter, I thought since the father franes Barnes is not arround you did not want to help me out again because I request you to tell father that i need any scan copy of his ID this will enable me to legalise the document to the courier company but since then i have not here naything from you and without this the company will not accept the transfer.
As soon I have this i will do the legalistaion my self here, I have even deposit for the lawyer here but its only the ID that is delaying everything.
I wait for your response
Sincerely yours
Ange

Dearest Ange,

We certainly do want to help you and I am sorry that your request for Father Charles Farnes-Barnes ID was not understood.

Now we do not know when the good Father will return from Haiti but I must inform you that even if he were here in the United Kingdom, it would not be possible to send you his ID. This is because members of The Holy Bagel Community work under strict anonymity.

However, the Holy Bagel Community possesses consultative status at UNESCO [United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation] and Father Charles possesses a United Nations laissez-passer card. If you quote the following reference to the courier company: UNESCO 895627/FU/99/HBC/2 this should be sufficient to confirm his identity. This reference is ceteris paribus and is in full compliance with the vas deferens paragraphs in Chapters 19 and 20 of the United Nations International Travel Regulations 1988.

No further action is needed by the courier company as Father Charles has authorised me to give you this reference which should of course be treated in strict confidence.

I do hope this will enable you to proceed with our business.

My Sweet Sister,

I am sure that that the lawyer will understand your situation. If he is a good lawyer he will know all about the United Nations laissez-passer document.

Now I am afraid that the same rule about our identification photographs applies to our personal telephone numbers. However, I shall be at an important meeting at The Lowry Hotel, Manchester tomorrow [Friday] between 11.30 and 27.00 [UK time] and you can speak to me between these hours at this number (0)161 xxx xxxx room 142.

As we say in Smegaroon, slop zich kop in vant,

Dearest One,

I have just realised that there is a telephone number at the top of the e-mail I sent you a few minutes ago. This telephone number is that of my sister Mrs Tushie Meshuganah. Do not call her as she does not approve of the Holy Bagel Community because I donated $50,000 of my inheritance from our family trust to Father Farnes-Barnes and she will obstruct our business if she possibly can do so.

As this is important I will try and write this in French which I think is your native language - elle fera obstruction à notre entreprise, si elle peut éventuellement faire.

I must apologise for my mistake,

Sister Nelda

[Bugger! I left the telephone number of the Scotland Yard Fraud Squad at the top of the e-mail to "Sister Ange". Hopefully my second one will stop her calling the number because I want to use Tushie and hopefully the American chapter of the HBC further down the line...

Incidentally, do let me know if any translation of Smegaroonian phrases used in my correspondence is needed]
