PARLEMENT OF LADDES


Geoffrey Chaucer (a close relative of Aggie Nostick) brings his moral values to bear on Mr. Paul Akwa, a man who needs them.
The result is an "Akwa rd correspondence".


Mr. Paul Akwa has a bunch of money he wants to give me. I am doing my best to make it difficult for him to do that.

The cast so far:

I am Mr. Paul Akwa, a senior staff with the International commerical Bank fact finding & special duties Office. I am writing you this letter based on the fact that cool penny is better than millions of Dollars means it's better for one to live and die poor honest man than a rich dishonest one. I and the Chief security officer (CSO) of this organization have arranged with an officer in the Computer section the person of Engineer Peter Cliff to bring out part of your total pending payment with reference number (LM-05-371) amounting to US$14.7 million. Why we did this is because according to information gathered from the bank's security computer, you have been waiting for a long time to receive this payment without success. As I found out that you have almost met all the statutory.

Requirements in respect of your pending payment. The problems you are having is that of interest groups. A lot of people are interested in your payment and those people are merely doing paper works with you and that explains why you receive different kinds of untrue fax and phone messages from different people everyday. Also we found out that some of the officials of the prostates have been extorting a lot of money from you with the pretext of helping you receive your money. I can assure you this will keep happening if you. If you can also come here in West Africa Accra Ghana it will be better so that we can sit and discuss how to therefore this money. To your account.

The said payment is been arranged in a security-proof box weighing 75kg. In order to get this box shipped to you I and the (CSO) Yesterday went to this four courier companies Dhl,, Ems, FedEx and Ups to make arrangements On how to get the box shipped to you by courier, but to no avail the above courier companies all made us to understand that they will have to open the box for inspection by the customs before shipment. This is something We want to avoid because this box is been padded with synthetic nylon and to open it you will have to cut the pad before you will meet the button that you will press to open the dial code-lock. There is no way you can open the box and be able to close it again because it was padded with machine. We told the courier services that the box Contained film materials and when open will spoil the materials. We did not declare money because courier does not carry money.

Today a friend of mine who is a diplomat disclosed to me that there is a security courier Service Company that is specialized in sending diplomatic materials and information from one country to another, which also has diplomatic immunity and consignment such as this, cannot be checked by any customs anywhere in the world. I have therefore met the official of the security courier service and concluded shipping arrangement with them, which they will commence as soon as I have your go ahead order. The diplomat who will be bring in this consignment to you is An expert and has been in this line of work for many years now so we have noting to worry about. After all arrangements we have concluded that you must donate Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars (US$500, 000.00) to any charity organization I designate as soon as you receive your money. To this effect, you will send to us a promissory note for the donation along with your address where you will like the box to be delivered to by the courier. Please mails bellow information:

1) Your full name, address...
2) Phone, fax...
3) Company name, position..
4) Profession, age and marital status...

May God be with you as I await your response?

Yours Faithfully
Mr. Paul Akwa.

I'm afraid I've already spoken of this arrangement with my solicitor, whom I trust entirely. I hope this is all right.

Regarding Mr. Hill, you say that "he was dead since 1996..." which seems to suggest that he is no longer dead. How can this be?

Dear Mr. Akwa:
It is, actually, the very secrecy of this business that sets me thinking that there may be ethical questions involved. Isn't my claiming to be Mr. Hill's next-of-kin dishonest? Isn't that a lie?

If, in order for me to participate in this scheme, you require me to be dishonest, I wonder whether you can be relied upon for honesty on your end. I wish to cast no aspersions, you understand, but it does strike me as a bit odd.

Dear Mr. Akwa:

It isn't the danger that bothers me as much as the notion of becoming involved in something unethical. You are asking me to claim to be someone whom I am not. While the arrangement may not have any legal repercussions, there is the possibility that at some point a legitimate next-of-kin may be found with a legitimate claim to the funds. Perhaps this person will have had a difficult time of it, and the funds would be a way out of a tight corner. Perhaps there would be such financial burdens on the person as medical expenses for a serious illness. I would hate to be party to anything that might deprive someone of what is rightfully his.

There is also the rather interesting problem of your asking me to lie, and at the same time asking me to believe that you are telling the truth. There is a sort of logical dissonance established here.

I hope you understand my reluctance.

Thank you

Dear Mr. Akwa:

You ask me to reason with you, and so I shall:

Let us first look at the claim that you would like me to make; to wit, that I am the next-of-kin of the late Mr. Hill. We must ask ourselves whether I am, in fact, the next-of-kin of the late Mr. Hill. I have no reason to believe that I am, and yet you request that I represent myself as such.

Next, let's look at the notion that you have deposited money with a security company, describing the contents of the package in which you have placed the money as "film material." Is it "film material"? No, you tell me that it is money.

The above statements persuade me that deception is a common practice in conducting this sort of business. That being the case, by what means am I to be persuaded that you are not practicing the same sort of deception upon me?

I am prepared to act in good faith only when you have convinced me that you are doing the same.

Thank you,

I KNOW YOU ARE NOT MR.

SO MY BROTHER PLEASE LET US DO THIS TRANSACTION BECAUSE THE MORE DELAYANCE MORE THE SECURITY CHARGES FESS INCREASING DAY BY DAY, KINDLY UNDERSTAND THAT NO NEGATIVE ABOUT THIS TRANSACTION BUT POSITIVE.

SO FEAR NOT I MY SELF HERE IS A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY AND I KNOW MY POSITION AND I HAVE FAMILY IF THERE WILL BE A PROBLEM I WILL NEVER STEP MY FOOT IN THIS TRANSACTION.

Dear Mr. Akwa:

My doubts do not arise from a fear of anyone questioning me, but rather from the notion that you are asking me to do something dishonest.

You tell me that you have been dishonest with the operators of the security company, telling them that the box you deposited with them contains film material when it actually contains money.

This transaction seems to be entirely constructed of mendacity, and yet you insist that I can trust you.

Do you see the logical difficulty?

Dear Mr. Akwa,

May I be forward and ask how it is that you know what God wants? I, myself, have a difficult time with the idea of "God" and what "God" wants. I am not entirely certain that such an entity exists, and if so, can this entity be said to want anything?

I rather think that if there are such things as gods, they are very indifferent to what goes on here on earth.

Here is my position: You ask me to lie, you tell me that you have lied, and you ask me to believe you. How credulous I would be to take your word for anything. I have no way, other than your rather questionable word, of verifying anything you tell me.

Imagine this: I write to you, a man completely unknown to me, and I ask you to pretend to be my brother-in-law so that I can have access to my deceased sister's millions. I tell you that this money is in a box in a storage facility and that the proprietors of the storage facility believe that the box contains phonograph records, but I will tell you that it contains large sums of money.

Dear Mr. Akwa:

As to abandoning the funds, the simple truth is that the money does not belong to me, and therefore, I have no right to it, so yes, I would abandon it.

I have not said that you have lied to me. What I have said is that you ask me to lie, and tell me that there is no risk in the transaction you suggest because you have lied to the security company. I can only conclude from that the idea of lying does not make you at all uncomfortable.

What I suggest is, since you are a man of faith, trusting as you appear to do in God, that you let go of this obsession with a dead man's money and rely upon divine providence to attend to your needs.
