THE DEAD BANK CUSTOMER REDEMPTION - THE SCREENPLAY

Dopp Bob returns... this time it's anonymous and impersonal.
Mr. Bob was last seen in A LOVE STORY IN FOUR ACTS
, where he came away with nothing but an empty popcorn bag.

Hey again - I got spammed by Dopp Bob again so I
decided to use him in a modified version of the
Shawshank Redemption.  The screenplay's available
online, just search for "made love under that tree".

Featured cast:
Anthony Ozor - 419 scammer, the latest reincarnation
of "Dopp Bob", using the Jacobus Van Zyl Smit ruse
Johnson Adebe - prisoner in the US judicial system
Pat Croce - court-appointed attorney for Mr Adebe

Additional credits: Frank Darabont, screenwriter,
based on original story by Stephen King

-trailer.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ever get the feeling you're playing a small part in
somebody else's movie?  In this movie the scammer
plays a small but critical part.

         (URGENT)
RE:  TRANSFER OF ($26,000.000.00 USD}
        TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS
Dear Sir,
We want to transfer to overseas account           &nb
sp; 
($26,000.000.00 USD) Twenty six million United States
Dollars) from a Prime Bank here in South Africa, I
want to ask you, If you can look for a reliable and
honest person who will be capable and fit to provide
either an existing bank account or to set up a new
Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an
empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as
you will remain honest to me till the end for this
important business trusting in you and believing in
God that you will never let me down either now or in
future.
I am the Auditor General of one of the prime banks
here in South Africa, during the course of our
auditing,I discovered a floating fund in an account
opened in the bank in 1996 and since 1998 nobody has
operated on this account again,after going through
some old files in the records I discovered that the
owner of the account died without a [Heir/WILL] hence
the money is floating and if I do not remit this money
out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The
owner of this account is PEDRO F. HASLER a foreigner,
a great industrialist and he died since 1998.No other
person knows about this account or any thing
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary
and my investigation proved to me as well that until
his death he was the manager GOLD ARK [pty]. SA. We
will start the first transfer with Six million
[$6,000.000] upon successful transaction without any
disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the
payment of the remaining rest amount to your account.
The total amount involve is Twenty six million United
States Dollars only [$26,000.000.00]. I want to first
transfer $6,000.000.00 [Six million United States
Dollar] from this money into a safe foreigners account
abroad before the rest. But I don't know any
foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner
because this money can not be approved to a local
person here, without valid international foreign
passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner
with valid international passport or drivers license
and foreign a/c  because the money is in US dollars
and the former owner of the a/c is a
foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into
a foreign a/c.
However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us
together when we meet face to face after the first
transfer of $6 Million before transferring the second
part of $20 Million. I am revealing this to you with
believe in God that you will never let me down in this
business, you are the first and the only person that I
am contacting for this business, so please reply
urgently so that I will inform you the next step to
take urgently. Send also your private telephone and
fax number including the full details of the account
to be used for the deposit.
I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and
to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together
immediately after the first transfer before we fly to
your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine
because the management is ready to approve this
payment to any foreigner who has correct information
of this account, which I will give to you upon your
positive response and once I am convinced that you are
capable and will meet up with instruction of  a key
bank official who is deeply involved with me in this
business. I need your strong assurance that you will
never, never let me down.
With my influence and my position in the bank the bank
official can transfer this money to any foreigner's
reliable account that you can provide with assurance
that this money will be intact pending our physical
arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official
Will destroy all documents of transaction immediately
we receive this money leaving no trace to any place
and to build confidence you can call me for heart to
heart discussion through my private satellite phone
which I secured for the security and safety of this
business as you know that this business is
confidential.I will use my position and influence to
obtain all legal  pprovals for onward transfer of this
money to your account with appropriate clearance from
the relevant ministries and foreign exchange
departments. At the conclusion of this business, you
will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for
me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might
have incurred
during the process of transferring.
I look forward to your earliest reply through my email
address.
Yours truly
Anthony  ozor

ANTHONY OZOR voice over:

From: "ANTHONY14 ANTHONY14"  Subject: URGENT 
Date: Mon, 3 Mar 2003 14:18:16 -0800 

      Dear Johnson Adebe,
This is to acknowledge the receipt of your mail.
Considering your positive response and in my
anticipation of a strong and solid cooperation from
your side in this business, in-fact I am very much
interested to know whether you will be capable to do
this business with me in full confidence trusting that
you will never let me down in future and if you are
really serious and have the facilities for effective
communications
The deceased, PEDRO F. HASLER held this account with a
prime bank, PSG Investment Bank Limited SA. I work
with this bank, PSG INVESTMENT BANK LIMITED SOUTH
AFRICA as the BOARD AUDIT COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN since
SEPTEMBER 2000 and my real name is DR.JACOBUS VAN ZYL
SMIT. I USED THE NAME IN MY FIRST LETTER AS A SECURITY
MEASURE BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW YOU BEFORE, I CONTACTED
YOU AS A TOTAL STRANGER AND YOU SHOULD ADDRESS ME WITH
THAT NAME IN MY FIRST LETTER THROUGH OUT OUR
COMMUNICATION IN THIS DEAL FOR SECURITY REASON.I am 60
years of age and I am from a Royal Cethswayo family in
Zulu South Africa with grand Children, I cannot do
anything that will spoil the good name of my Great
family or, tarnish your own image. 
It interests me to note that you are willing to
receive this fund into your account. I must assure you
that this business is 100% risk and trouble free hence
the fund is a legitimate fund, which does not
originate from drug or money laundry, terrorism or any
other illegal act. All arrangement to see to the
successful transfer of the fund to your account is
already in place but my only worry is the security and
safety of the fund once transferred to your account.
As such I will like you to send me a brief life
biography of yours, a copy of your international
passport, your contact address both office & home so
that I will know that you are for real. You should
also send me your correct account information of where
you will like the fund to be transferred so that I
will start to process the transfer of the fund to your
account.
On receipt of the above information and a strong
assurance from you that my trust and confidence in you
is not misplaced, I will then start to process the
transfer of the fund to your account without further 
delay.I will forward your account detail to the
Ministry of finance for foreign transfer approval in
your favor. So as soon as the fund is approved for
transfer to your account, you as the foreign
beneficiary of the fund will be required to come down
here in South Africa or to any of our foreign offshore
payment office close to you for the signing of the
final fund release order.
After the signing the fund will be transferred to your
account in your present and you will call your bank to
confirm receipt of the fund in your account. On
confirmation of the successful transfer of the fund
to your account, I will then fly back with you to your
Country for sharing and investment as I stated in my
first letter of proposal.
After the proper sharing of the first $6 Million, we
will be together and I will have the remaining balance
of $20 Million transferred to your account and we will
also share the same as I stated earlier.
Waiting anxiously to hear from you.
Sincerely yours,
Anthony.

Dear Mr Van Zyl Smit,

Salam aleikum.  Thank you for your letter.  I am not
sure why you sign as Anthony still but I understand
the need for confidentialness.  I do not have access
to my passport until I get out of here shortly, that
is where I think we can help each other.  I have a lot
of money in multiple accounts that I think would be
put to good use with this business, but I am awaiting
a parole hearing.  Would you be able to write a
reference letter on my behalf?  It would help me to
gain parole, which would allow me to leave this place
and get to my accounts thanks Allah may his name be
praised.  While locked up I do not have access to
phones and banks (warden's rules), but I have hidden
much you understand and can access it once out.  It
would help me tremendously my brother Jacobus if you
would write a letter on my behalf to help me gain
freedom and access to my money.  We both win.  Coming
from someone in your position it would mean much to
those who would otherwise seek to keep me held down
you understand.  I wait to hear your response.

Johnson Adebe.

Brother Jacobus,

Salam aleikum.  I am surprised that I have not heard
back from my brother Jacobus yet.  Please send a
reference letter to me saying I am a good citizen of
the USA, I will work with you on the content then you
can send it to the parole board on my behalf.  It is
important that the letter not come from a relative. 
Once I get out I will be free to access the accounts
that will conclude our business favorably.  

With little effort this business will run smoothly. 
The money that I have access to is not from drugs or
terrorism, you understand my brother.  We can do much
together.

Your brother,
Johnson Adebe.

not ill.  If you are not interested in doing business,
you should not have requested my assistance.  If you
are really a man, you should at least reply and let me
know what the status is.

after 9/11 America put many many foreigners in jail,
your kind letter will help show that I am not a man to
be feared, I am a devout man thanks Allah may his name
be praised.  Your letter will allow me to be free to
help you, you understand my brother.

delivery to the review board.  This is a wonderful
thing you offer to do my brother.  The printer is in a
locked area so the letter has to be correct before it
is printed.

The more you can write about our past together, the
better it will sound.  I have not offered to them many

1.  Thank you for your letter regarding our client Mr
Johnson Adebe.  This will be a great help to his case.
 To help us make the best case before the review
board, it is critical for you to cite examples of Mr
Adebe's behavior that led you to give this
recommendation.  Please provide as many examples as
possible, and be as specific as possible.

2.  Since I am assuming the pro forma hearing review
board members will not know you personally, it would
be appropriate for you to include a very brief
biography of yourself, 100 words maximum should be
fine.  Please send that as soon as possible.

3.  Finally, if you will be able to attend the review

please let me know and I will have one of our

Thank you for your reply.  Mr Adebe's release is
conditional; we have one week to provide supplemental
documentation demanded by the authorities.  Among that
documentation that we must provide is the information
we previously requested of you.  That is, we need, in
writing, a short biography from you as well as
documentation of events and experiences that led to
your commendation for him.  We must provide that
information to provide an evidentiary basis for your
testimony.

Mr Adebe has been released to my recognizance, is
traveling in custody, and should arrive here today. 
We are actively working to generate the other
documentation requested; please send your information
as quickly as possible.  There is a followup hearing
scheduled for April 8.  If we do not provide a full

Salam aleikum.  My brother, thank you for your aid
this far.  My lawyer says you still have not provided
information that he needs.  My brother, thanks Allah
may His name be praised I have come this far. 
Tomorrow there will be another hearing to provide the
government with supporting documentation.  If we
cannot support all of the evidence then their decision
to grant me pardon will be reconsidered and most
likely rescinded.  My brother, please help me as you
can and we will then be able to enter into our
business.  Please email me the information or fax it
to Mr Croce's office, 831-###-#### in the US.

Your brother,
Johnson Adebe.

ANTHONY OZOR kicks his fax machine in frustration.  It
lands in a pile of chicken bones.

33 - INT - CONFERENCE ROOM, LATER THAT NIGHT - 33


A late snowstorm has left snow gathering in the
corners of the office windows.  Outside, the final
flakes drift across the parking lot.  JOHNSON ADEBE
sends out one final note before his hearing.


Subj: Package left for you

Salam aleikum.  My brother, tomorrow afternoon they
will decide my fate.  If you have not sent in the
information yet then I pray you do so quickly.  You
know where I would like to go?  Mexico.  Little place
right on the Pacific.  You know what the Mexicans say
about the Pacific?  They say it has no memory.  That's
where I'd like to finish out my life.  A warm place
with no memory.  Open a little hotel right on the
beach.  Buy some worthless old boat and fix it up like
new.  Take my guests out charter fishing.

You know, a place like that, I'd need a man who can
get things.  A town called Zihuatanejo.

Whatever mistakes I made I've paid for and then some. 
That hotel and that boat...I don't think it's too much
to want.  To look at the stars just after sunset. 
Touch the sand.  Wade in the water.  Feel free.

Look, if something happens, do me a favor.  There's
this big hayfield up near Buxton in Maine.  You know
where Buxton is?  Lots of hayfields there.  One in
particular has a long rock wall with a big oak at the
north end, like something out of a Robert Frost poem. 
It's where I asked my wife to marry me.  We'd gone for
a picnic.  We made love under that tree.  I asked and
she said yes.  Promise me, my brother, if something
happens, find that spot.  In the base of that wall
you'll find a rock that has no earthly business in a
Maine hayfield.  A piece of black volcanic glass. 
You'll find something buried under it I want you to
have.  You'll just have to pry up that rock and see.

Your brother,
Johnson Adebe.
