A TALE OF TWO DANES

In the richest scam that the fortunate Eliza Dane has so far seen, two Lads dangle the bait of $125 millions to lure her to London! Chaos ensues when a second Eliza makes contact with the Lads.

The Lads:
Patrick Colombo, "personal account officer to the great late INDUSTRIALIST" Philip Morris
(an Iraqi citizen; who'd have thought that?)
Mike Anderson, of the London Branch of the African Development Bank

The Baiters
Eliza Dane, a student from Australia
(who opened her baiting career with OPERATION AMSTERDAM: FLIGHT OF THE WILD ROSE in 2005).
The Fake Eliza Dane, played by Lewd Noogie
Advice and banter from Lewd Noogie, Mikhail Stroganov


Let's see what's on special today.

Patrick Colombo

07/12/2005

Hello,
I want to transfer ($125,000.000 USD) One Hundred & Twenty five million US Dollars from a Prime Bank here in South Africa to an oversea account.First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential. I am sure and have confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude.

I solicit your assistance to enable us transfer the said amount into your safe account for unward investment.You can either provide us with an existing account or to set up a new Bank account

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 of this important business trusting in you and believing that you will never let me down either now or in future.

I am the personal account officer to the great late INDUSTRIALIST who has an account in one of the top banks here in South Africa. The account was opened in 1998 and he died in 2003 without a written or oral WILL and since 2003 nobody has operated on this account again 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 a foreigner and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the manager of the company.My investigation through the National immigration department proved to me as well that he was single as at the time of his entry into the Republic of South Africa. The amount in this account is USD$125 Million ( One Hundred & Twenty five Million United States Dollars ) only.

As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer this fund abroad for investment. Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary because the management of the bank will welcome any foreigner who has correct information to this account which I will give to you immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me.There is no risk in this business. With my position and my personal contact

with the manager of the bank, the money can be transferred to any account you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing.

We will start the first transfer with Twenty five million[$25,000.000]. Upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining balance of $100 Million to your account.

I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here, but can only be approved to any foreigner who has the correct information of the account which I will provide for you.

The informations will be as follows..

Bank Name..Bank Address..
A/C Name...A/C Number.....
Swift Code No...
Phone numbers home and office...

So you should provide me with your correct account details and your phone numbers, where you will like the fund to be transferred or you can set up a new account for the transfer even an empty account is ok. At the conclussion of the transfer you will take 35%,5% will be for any expenses both parties incurred in the process of this business and the remaining 60% will be for me. As soon as I hear from you and upon your strong assurance that you will not let me down once the fund goes into your account I will then start the processing of the transfer of the fund to your account without further delay.

Contact me urgently via email (pat1030colo@latinmail.com) for further details.Thanks.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr.Patrick Colombo.


Ah, a very rich Dead Bank Customer! let's bring 'em on.

Eliza Dane

Dear Mr. Colombo,

While under normal circumstances I would be very interested in your proposal, I am puzzled that you can't reveal the identity of the "late great INDUSTRIALIST".

Until this detail is explained I can't help.

Regards,
Eliza Dane



Patrick Colombo07/12/2005

Dear Eliza Dane,

Thanks for your mail, firstly, I must assure you that this business is totally free of risk and also transparent. I wouldn't have involved myself in this transaction if it were not safe. This is my over two decades in banking cycle. You should give priority attention to this business if you are really capable of handling this business that requires great trust and confidence bearing in mind that this is not a regular business that comes and goes, it is a God sent opportunity and such opportunity usually comes once in a life time.

I am a Christian and also a trustworthy want to assure you that this business is 100% guaranteed and there will be documents of transfer to prove that the money going into your a/c is free from Drug/terrorist and money laundering.

You should know that I am not doing this business because of the large amount that is involved on it but rather the success of this business will benefit both families from generation to generation as far as you follow the instruction which I will be getting from our Insider in Bank, and you should know that never a business to succeed without building trust to each other. I promise you that I will never let you down in this business either now in the future. You should know that this opportunity can hardly come my way again in lifeok" so be rest assured that everything will work out fine fine.

Infact 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.

2) You must have a valid international passport or traveling documents then, contact me with the following, This business will be completed within 7 Banking days from the date of the receipt of your A/C Details and subsequent approvals from the Foreign Exchange control division.

You should not tell your bank that money is coming until I finish processing of all documents to show your bank that this money is clean money from genuine source, to avoid your bank asking you early questions that you may not be able to answer so you should not alert them.

After the processing of all Foreign Payment documents, and when the money is ready to be paid into your A/C, after the final Approval in your favor by the bank you will be required to come in person or go to Foreign Payment Office attached to the Embassy in South Africa or in abroad to sign the Foreign Payment vouchers preceding telegraphic TT to your A/C or you can appoint a Lawyer here to represent and sign on your behalf under special arrangement. At the Foreign

Payment Office you will be required to fill the payment Order chart specifying schedule of payments to beneficiaries A/C.

However, it is my intention to be with you at least 2-3days ahead of the money going into your A/C then we will sign the binding agreement, after your bank must have been satisfied with the original documents which I will bring along with me to your country to show your bank or it's correspondence bank that the money is legal. You should know that this opportunity can hardly come my way again in life, so I have planned everything very well with an insider in the bank so be rest assured that everything will work out fine.

I need your a/c information and your private telephone number's both home & office for easier and faster communication. You should send the a/c information as stated below.......

Bank Name:Address of the Bank:
A/c Number:A/C Holder:

because the original operator of the A/C is a foreigner and this money can only be approved into a

foreign beneficiaries A/C only, frankly speaking from the bottom of my heart my fear now is the security of this money in your custody once transferred into your A/C because I don't know you before nor your capability and facilities to handle this large amount.

What is your age and profession? I really want to know more of you and I will want you to keep it very confidential at all time and also to be maintaining constant communication with me knowing that this business should take precedence over any other business for the mean time.

I am waiting for your immediate response.

Best Regards,
Mr.Patrick Colombo,


Eliza Dane

Dear Mr. Colombo:

I'll clear up one thing at least. Firstly; I'm a student in botanical science at Hawkesbury Agricultural College. I'm 22 years old.

Now, you wrote, "I don't know you before nor your capability and facilities to handle this large amount" - why do you say this? Isn't it my job to set up an account to receive it? If you wanted me to invest the money, it'd be a legit question, but you aren't.

Also, you didn't answer my question about the name of the industrialist. I would like to know this because without it I have no certainty that this money isn't from some other source. We live in a very suspicious time these days and I don't want to end up in prison or worse because I helped smuggle money from tainted sources - I think you know what I mean. I told you that I wasn't willing to help unless you came through with that detail - and I meant it.

Regards,
Eliza Dane

09/12/2005

Dear Eliza Dane ,

I got your mail,It's well noted understood,I must assure you that this business is totally free of risk and also transparent. I wouldn't have involved myself in this transaction if it were not safe.

Regarding your question the name of the industrialist is philip morris ok. You should send account details to be use immediately so that we can start processing approval docunments on time.

You should state the account information as follows.

Bank name...........................
Bank address........................
Account name........................
Account numbers.....................
Beneficary Name.....................
You should try to send the account information so that we can start processing approval documents from the ministry of justice and ministry of finance because it will take 6-7banking days to get all the documents and I will be sending to you the document the very moment is available through email attachment,

so you therefore send the account information and your telephone number because we still have enough time to exchange mail and talk on phone before payment into the account.

I wait for the account informations.

Yours,

Patrick.


Eliza Dane

Dear Mr. Colombo,

Sorry for the delay. Everything slows down this time of year...

Here you are - as far as I could fill it out.

Bank name........................... Westpac Bank
Bank address........................ I don't understand this. Do you mean the actual location of a branch?
Account name........................ Ms Elizabeth Danielle Dane.
Account numbers..................... G641 937 424
Beneficary Name.....................Isn't this my name?

It wasn't all clear, could you explain more?

This AFFIDAVIT is the main backbone for legal approval and I spent a lot of money to geting it with the Lawyer {Ben. William}. We are still expecting to receive approval from the Ministry of Finance {FOREIGN EXCHANGE CONTROL UNIT}.

Eliza Dane,
I got your mail,i am very sorry to hear from you that you didn't received the attachment i will resend it again later ok,my computer is having problem this morning but i will try to scan it and send it to you ok.

According to your question,minister said why you should go to london in person for the signing the

necesassary document of the releasing your fund .

You have to go london to pay the Inheritance tax/Stamp Duty Charge to the Govt. so that the certificates of Inheritance will be issued to you as the legal beneficiary.

For the sign "Performance Bond" and they will transfer the 26M to your a/c in your presence while in London, and as soon as you receive the 25M in your a/c, you will wire to me the $25,000to pay the Inheritance tax and obtain certificates Inheritance and meet you with the originals to prove to your bank that the money is not a drug/money laundering.

I am waiting to hear from you.

Your brother,

Patrick.


Eliza Dane

Dear Mr. Colombo,

I think I know what's ging on... but I have to ask...

Your plan is, I go to London, I pay a fee - how much you didn't say - and then I get the money, and I pay another fee. Ohhhkkkaaaayyyy...

Give me the time frame as I will have to do some planning. You chose a rotten time to do this as I am committed to Christmas/New Year hols on the Gold Coast. Don't move on this too soon.

Patrick Colombo

17/12/2005

Dear Ms, Elizabeth,

We have finally achieve our sincere, am now so happy, it is not easy, but am so happy that finally we have achieved out goal, am so happy.

We have already got all the necessary documents and approvals, the onlything remaining now, is that the ministry of justice wants you to come to SA to pay Tax of 0.1% of 25M which is $25,000.00 Inheritance tax/Stamp Duty Charge to the Govt. so that the certificates of Inheritance will be issued to you as the legal beneficiary.

But the alternative we have, is that you can go to London to pay $12,338.00 and sign "Performance Bond" and they will transfer the 25M to your a/c in your presence while in London, and as soon as you receive the 25M in your a/c, you will wire to me the $25,000 to pay the Inheritance tax and obtain certificates Inheritance and meet you with the originals to prove to your bank that the money is not a drug/money laundering.

Call the foreign payment officer in London Mr. Mike Andreason on +44-7990776733 or contact him through his email address: mikeandersonassociate0499@yahoo.com. Try to contact him now and ask him the place and date to meet in London to conclude our business. We are going to give him 5% commission after successful transfer from London to your a/c, the minister has already asked him to help us and he has agreed with the minister, so anything he ask you to do, you should do it because he is working in our favour.

You are required to go to London with the following requirements

1)Photocopy of your ID.
2)$12,338.00"Performance Bond"
3)2 passport Picture
4)You should travel with those documents to our foreign offshore payment center in London

I will be meeting you people in London with the Bank Official here who made every thing to be possible the very moment you confirm to me on phone that you have received the money with Mr. Mike Andearson because the Bank Official said that all of us should not be in London at one time because it is necessary that if there is any need for reconfirmation of payment from Foreign Payment Office to the Home Office of the Ministry of Finance needed at the Foreign Payment

Office From ADB Bank there will be no right person to reconfirm it. So as soon as you receive the money in London, I will meet with you there and we will fly from London to your country.

Call him now and get back to me as quickly as possible.

I wait for your confirmation.

Your brother
Patrick

The bit about "forwarding the documents that you sent me" isn't a mistake. Somewhere along the way the email in which they arrived got lost.
Eliza Dane



Dear Mr Colombo,

He wrote back to me today, and he wants these things:

The account details will comprise the full address of the bank.
The phone and fax number of the Bank

Account name and account number.
Your identification, drivers license or International passport, preferable International passport.
Any document that was issued to you concerning this transfer as a full support for your claim.
Your private phone and fax number.

I can do the bank info OK, and I guess I can forward the documents that you sent me, but the passport is going to be a problem as I don't have a scanner. I don't have a fax either. The really embarrassing thing is that I can't give my home phone number as I have a very jealous boyfriend who would be very suspicious of calls from unknown men; and my mobile is on local-only setting.

Please advise me.

Dear Mr. Colombo,
I told you more than once that I would be away until the 6th - I got back only yesterday. I'm going to look for a business centre on Monday. That said, I won't be able to do any travelling for a little while - not until mid-January at the earliest. I hope that there are no problems with that.

Elizabrth,
Thank for your mail, i am happy to hear from you that your back safety thanks be to God,have you contacted Mr.Mike,to let him know your date of coming to london for the conclution of our successful business so that they will transfere your money in your prense while in london.

Contact him now and tell him your traveling arrangement ok,

I am waiting to hear from you.

Your brother
Patrick.



Eliza Dane

Dear Mr Colombo,
I'm glad that you're concerned about me, but we were only going to the Gold Coast, the only thing we had to worry about was drunk drivers.

Like I said before, you chose a bad time to contact me about this - we just had our holidays and I was in Holland only a couple of months ago.

Oh yeah, there's another hassle - I'd forgotten about this, but my passport expired in late November. There's no point in sending Mr. Anderson that, is there? I'll have to reapply, and that could take a while - a couple of weeks, minimum - they go through the whole process again, no automatic reissues. It's a 9/11 thing, you know.

Regards,
Eliza Dane



Patrick Colombo

Elizabeth,
Your mail well received, it's well noted understood,have you had from Mr.Anderson, what you should do is to let Mr.Anderson your arrangement and know everything about your passport ok,because your the one that holding this business now so my sisiter contact Mr.Anderson now and tell him all your plans to london for the completions of our business.

Always in touch with Mr.Anderson contact him ok, and get back to me.

Yours,
Patrick



Eliza Dane

Dear Mr. Anderson,
I am unable to supply a copy of a current passport as mine expired in mid-November - I am very sorry that I did not see this before. I have to reapply for a new passport and that will take at least two weeks. I will supply updates as necessary.

I will be meeting you in your contry with the Bank Official here who made every thing to be possible the very moment you confirm to me on phone that you have received the money from Mr. Mike Andearson because the Bank Official said that all of us should not be in your contry at one time because it is necessary that if there is any need for reconfirmation of payment from Foreign Payment Office to the Home Office of the Ministry of Finance needed at the Foreign Payment Office From ADB Bank there will be no right person to reconfirm it. So as soon as you receive the money from London, I will meet with you there i will fly to your country,my sister every body here is happy.

Your mail well received,however you should let Mr.Mike, know your plans ok,tell him everytging about your plans to london,as soon as you got your passport out you let him know immediately. Have a nice weekend.
Your brother, Patrick.



So, what are the Lads going to do now? Time to call for advice from the experts.

"ELIZA DANE" TO SCAMORAMA:

I need advice from experienced Scamoramans - any chance of some counsel from Lewd Noogie, Lonslo Tossov or Mikhail Stroganov?

In short, the situation is this: I got to work on a fairly basic Dead Bank Customer letter with this slight difference:


"The amount in this account is USD$125 Million ( One Hundred & Twenty five Million United States Dollars ) only.

As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer this fund abroad for investment. Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary because the management of the bankwill welcome any foreigner who has correct information to this account which I will give to you immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me.There is no risk in this business.With my positionand my personal contact with the manager of the bank, the money can be transferred to any account youcan provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing.

We will start the first transfer with Twenty five million[$25,000.000]. Upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining balance of $100 Million to your account.

I received a "Payment Advice Slip" today telling me that the first payment would be made on the 17th of this month, as follows:

This is to inform you that your fund has being transfered to your designated bank account this afternoon through our correspondence bank .

However,attache is the telex copy for the transfer of your fund through our correspondence bank in london the BARCLAYS BANK for your perusal.

However,you should check your local bank on the 17th of january 2006 for the receieve of the fund in your bank account .

You should inform me on that17th of january 2006as soon as you receieve the fund in order to upgrade my records."

Needless to say, there'll be no confirmation, and I'm wondering how the Lads are going to play this. They can't order me to London (to complete the 'final payout') 'cos I've already told them Eliza's passport expired and it'll be the end of January at the earliest before she gets a replacement.

So, guys - what are the Lads up to? What might they do next? Any advice on how to go ahead?

LEWD: I would have to go with Mikhail's assessment of the situation, although this is a refreshing twist andit will be interesting to see what ultimately causes the first transfer to crater. I'm sure you're aware that international financial transactions can be tricky at best and any number of things can occur to dick upthe modalities.

Since your lad has dropped the name Barclays, when the inevitable problem does arise you might lead him to believe that you have contacted or have been contacted bysomeone there who is offering you different advice, and they tend to get particularly frustrated if you can get him to think it might be another scammer trying to horn in on the original guys action.

Best of luck and I'll be watching for this.

ELIZA: Thanx for the prompt reply!
Your advice is most welcome.The likelihood - make that certainty - that the supposed transfer would fail and some fee be charged had occurred to me, and I was considering how to deal with it. I've played requests for Western Union transfers two ways; the "There's no WU in my home town" - my other persona, Malcolm Reynolds, uses that constantly as he lives in Alice Springs, a long way from anywhere, but Eliza, a Sydney resident, can't play that card - but this only lasts so long and almost inevitably segues into "Your bank/firm/whatever has been blacklisted/redflagged by WU!"I've used that twice so far and I don't want it to get stale. Lewd, I'll go with your suggestion. It should be worth a try. What's a good Laddish name I can use as my Barclay's "contact"?

Mikhail. I'm happy to string the Lads along, but I dunno if I can match your gift for creative invective - oops, I mean, good-natured banter. Izvenitye mnye, pazhalista.

Until next time, happy baiting, and may all your portions of Tira Misu be generous ones.



LEWD: As far as the name goes, I'm guessing that using something that sounds of African origin might get your lad to worrying that another scammer had come out of the woodwork and was poaching his territory. You might consider something like John Olowu, Hilman Egobia, Kelvin Woma, Farsan Haddad, Tunde Bolaji, Malick Diawara, Cecil Nnamdi, or Dan Egodima. These are all lads that I have worked with in the past and you are welcome to use any of their names that appeals to you. Otherwise, any European-sounding name would do.

OK, back to the bait. And it's not what I expected!

ELIZA: Hi all, Dammit if the Lads haven't pulled back from the brink. Here's what I got today;


Mike Anderson

15/01/06

Attn:Eliza Dane

This is to inform you that the transfer of fund which mas made in your favor has being recalled back. Your name falled in category A ,you are required to come to london and sign the fund release order document before the final release/transfer of the fund to your bank account. Based on that,you should inform me on when you are coming to london to sign the releasing document.

I apologises for the mistake.

We wait your most urgent response while we proceed to release your fund to your account designate.

Yours Sincerely

Mike Anderson



ELIZA: Looks as if Eliza's passport is going to have to be delayed. In any event, however, it's not all wasted -I did come up with a couple of names for use as needed. Apart from the classic (don't read this aloud) "Mike Hunt", there's also "Alice Klahr" - from the German phrase, "alles klahr" (everything is clear") (that's what you get from watching Inspector Rex).I'll keep you posted.

May all your Lads be greater Mugus than the ones before
Eliza


LEWD: Gosh, you were so close!Those damned catagory A requirements can be a bitch, no doubt about it. Look at it this way - at least you get a trip to London out of the deal.

MIKHAIL: INDEED SO_BE SURE TO LET US KNOW YOU ARE COMING AND THE SPECIAL OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO MEET YOU AT ANNIE'S BAR FOR A DRINK_PERHAPS AFTER YOU WOULD ENJOY A TOUR OF THE ROYAL CUSTARD ROOMS WHICH ARE RUN BY WEINER CRUMBLEY_A CLOSE ASSOCIATE OF LEWD WHO CERTAINLY KNOWS HOW TO ENJOY HIMSELF


Eliza Dane

Mr Anderson:

I am not happy with you!

I thought I'd done everything you wanted, given you what you asked for, and I thought I'd done everything right, that the first 25 mill was confirmation of that!

What the hell is 'Category A'?

Even if I wanted to come like right now, I can't, because my passport is still in process or something. It'll be at least another week.

Eliza Dane

PS This damn message came in three times! I told you not to do that. You don't have to cc me, if the first one doesn't make it, the cc won't either!



Eliza Dane

Dear Patrick,

Mike Anderson is an asshole! He just wrote (three times, to rub it in) that they've recalled the money, some failure in Category A, whatever the fuck that is.

I feel like I'm not trusted any more.

Eliza Dane



Patrick Colombo

Eliza,
I got your mail,what a hell is going on, i am very suprised when i got your mail this evening about you calling Mr.Mike Anderson an asshole please you should not let Mr.Mike know s that your calling him an asshole for me i don't like the statement you made about him ok.

Because only the minister instructed him to help us transfer your money to your account,you have to trust him because he working in our favour you should comply with him ok, you should whatever he ask you to do because he is on our side follow his instructions anytjing he ask you to do it immediately so that they will credit your account immediately without delay.

You don't need to be worrying yourself about Mr.Mike Anderson because former Minister for Justice Dr. PM Maduna is fully involve and he is the person that directed the payment Officer in london Mr.Mike Anderson to help us with his position in Govt. to transfer the money to your a/c once you come to london and complete all the procedure as directed and Mr.Mike Andersonis the person that will guide you and do everything without any other official asking you any question because he will make all the Internal & External arrangment for you before your arraival, so the idea of calling him an asshole is not honoured because he is an Official working on our behalf and

you should also know that is the reason why your presence is highly needed, so do not think that any stupid will happen in london when you go there rather everything will be successful completed and money will be transfered to your a/c, so be rest assured and follow his instructions and to complete everything without any problem because large amount of money like this is not go to be floating on Transit for a very long time without getting to the beneficiary's account which is you, so try to call Mr.Mike Anderson now and book appointment with him on when you will be in london to complete everything as planned and let me know by return email

I am waiting to hear from you.

Regard, Patrick.



Eliza Dane

Patrick,

Keep your hair on, dude!

Geez, if Mr Anderson finds out I called him an asshole, I'll know it was you, 'cos I sure as hell didn't tell him that. You don't have to tell him. Let me explain why I called him that.

Mike Anderson sent me a message, remember, about the 25 mill that was going to be in my account by tomorrow. Do you remember how happy I was? Well, then Mr Anderson tells me that for some reason (some failing under Category A, whatever the hell that is - he didn't explain what was wrong) I wasn't being credited with the money after all. It was like a slap in the face, I felt insulted, and if you could have heard what I actually said at the time... If he'd bothered to actually explain, not just give some waffle about Category A, I might have been OK with it.

I have been trying to do what's required. I'm still waiting for my new passport to be issued. Until I get that I can't complete the next phase, ie go to London. So I can't tell Mr Anderson when I'm going to be there because I have no idea when I can actually do any international travel.

Patrick, for God's sake take a chill pill, until I get my passport there is literally nothing to be done, and no amount of bluster and carrying-on can change that.

Regards,
Eliza Dane



It's time for my last email ere handing over the reins to Lewd.

Eliza Dane

Dear Patrick,

Nothing from the passport office yet but the normal deadline should be up tomorrow - so I should get a letter to come and pick it up. Then, and only then, can I get my flight!

Early on you said that there'd be a fee of $12,338 dollars to pay. What is that for? I understand about the $25000 tax but not the $12000+. Please clear that up.

I'll be in touch once I've got the passport.

Regards,
Eliza Dane



Patrick Colombo

Eliza,
Thanks for your mail,it's well noted understood, however i am very happy to heard from you regarding your passport procedure as soon as you got them you let me know ok,minister said you should feel free with Mr.Mike Anderson because he is working in our favour,just be sure you follow his instructions so they will transfer your money to your account in your presense while in london.

Regarding what you asking about the $12,338,is The Payment Voucher is showing that the payment was duely approved by the Foreign Payment Office and the Reserve Bank of S.A and once you comply with Foreign Payment procedures, payment into your a/c will be by irrevocable telegraphic wire transfer after you must have endorsed the Final Fund Release Order Form at the Foreign Payment Office with prompt payment of the official inheritance tax.

The schedule of fees contains the itemized purpose of inheritance tax for better understanding of the

reasons of fees to be paid before the assurance of the original certificate of inheritance or Letter of

Administration of Estate

the necessary Inheritance fees and endorse the necessary documents to acquire all the relevant documents especially the certificate of inheritance for the security of the funds going intoyour a/cwith full legalization of the transaction documents as it applies to other beneficiary/inheritors.

minister also said that you follow Mr.Mike Anderson instructions anything he ask you to do,do it

immediately because of the minister is fully involved, as soon as your passport is out you let

Mr.Mike, knows about yourtravelling arrangement, send him your flight scheduel as soon as everything is ready for you to go and sign the fund release order form.

I am waiting to hear from you with good development.

Good luck.

Your brother ,

Patrick.

Anyhow, it looks like every thing is set.

I'm a little nervous about all this so a little encouragement from you would be a big help

I was hoping to hear back from him today but I didn't receive anything. I'll write him again tonight and hopefully I'll hear something tomorrow.

Thanks again Patrick for your kind and sweet words. I can't wait until I can meet you face to face.

Dear Mike (I hope you don't mind if I use your first name),

Everything looks good for my leaving Monday. I should have my flight information this weekend and I'll send it to you as soon as I have it.

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to this trip! I almost swoon whenever I think that I'm actually going to London!

Now, I have some bad news for you. Patrick (Mr. Colombo) tells me that if there's anything I want, all I have to do is ask you and you will take care of it. Is this true? I want to take care of business, of course, but I really want to see London! I want to see it all - the Tower, Big Ben, the wax museum, and the clubs. Especially the clubs! Australia is such a timid country and I feel like breaking loose a little.

I wish I could come this weekend but we have an office party to celebrate the anniversary of the first Crocodile Dundee movie and since our company had a piece of the action I'm kind of obligated to be there. I know it probably sounds like no big deal to you but it put the country and our company on the map. Last year was a complete blowout!

I hope to hear from you soon!

Dear Patrick,

I sent a note to Mr. Anderson last night asking him about things to do in London while I'm there. I got a response this morning but it was strictly about business. He seems like a very stuffy guy and he doesn't sound like he's going to be much fun while I'm there. I guess I can manage on my own.

I will pick up my tickets later this evening. I work part-time for a small company that I hope I will work for after I graduate and they're having an office party today that I am sort of obligated to attend. I'll go to the travel agent right after that.

Too bad Mr. Anderson turned out to be such an old poop. You have been very sweet to me and it's too bad you won't be there.

First let me apologize for my tone of familiarity in my last correspondence. Mr. Colombo led me to believe that you were a more casual individual than you apparently are. I will try to maintain a more formal demeanor henceforth.

That said, I have arranged my flights to London and will be arriving at Heathrow airport on Wednesday, January 25 at 12:00, flight BA7371. I will contact you shortly after my arrival.

I will be staying over in Singapore for 2 days but I will be checking my email frequently. If anything comes up please let me know.

You would think he would at least acknowledge my email. What a creep! I can handle almost anything except stuffy, arrogant people and he's certainly not getting off on a good foot with me.

Mr. Anderson,

How nice of you to finally take the time to acknowledge my arrival, however, I don't want to bother you or put you to any trouble so I will arrange for a friend of mine to pick me up at the airport in London.

I know you are anxious to complete this transaction so you can get back to whatever it is that keeps you so busy that you don't have time to answer my emails, so I will tell you that I have everything with me you require.

I will contact you shortly after my arrival.

Sincerely,

Hi, Patrick,

I just wanted to let you know that I'm leaving for London soon and I'll let you know when I get there.

I finally heard from that guy Anderson. What a stuffy prick (pardon my French) he is! Patrick, I tell you, I can tell he is not a nice person. He knows I'm gonna be in London tomorrow but I'm gonna let him stew a day or two.

Anyhow, I'll let YOU know when I get there.

Let me hear from you.

Love,
Eliza



It's time for the real Eliza to re-enter the bait.

Dear Mr Colombo,

Is everything OK? I've been offline thanx to a really nasty computer virus that disabled my email. Luckily, my friend Nick knows some guys who restored my systems and reinstalled my address book, but my past emails (in and out) are still out of reach. I hope you haven't given up on me; I'm still raring to go.

DFAT gave me a call today, I have to go to the office on Friday (public holiday tomorrow) - I thought they were going to post the passport to me. Must be a new protocol, security I guess.

Get back to me quickly please, I need reassuring.

Eliza Dane



Eliza Dane

Dear Mr Anderson,

Please forgive me for not writing sooner, I've had a major computer virus disabling my email for some days now. All your previous emails (and mine) have been wiped (don't know if for good) so please let me know at once if our deal is still on.

Regards,
Eliza Dane



I don't understand why he warned me about the Nigerian embassy unless DFAT has a meaning that I don't know about!

I am waiting for your reply

Patrick.



Eliza Dane

Mr Colombo,

How the hell am I going to get to London today? I'm still in Sydney - I haven't even got my passport yet! Are you OK?

DFAT has nothing to do with the Nigerian Embassy. It's the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade over here; they issue passports. I haven't been in touch with the Nigerian Embassy, much less met with anyone there, why the hell should I have done that?

I'm really confused. What's going on?

Eliza Dane

Patrick,

Are you crazy or is it me?

I haven't sent any messages since Monday before last; that's when my email froze up. I certainly haven't made any promises to be in London today. What the hell are you on about?

I'm going to DFAT Friday to get my passport. I couldn't have promised to get to London without it.

This is a nightmare. Who have you been talking to? I can't clear this up, but maybe you can!

Eliza



Eliza Dane

Mr Anderson,

Please confirm if you've received messages in my name over the past eight or nine days, and what arrangements were agreed to as a result. Something odd has been happening - I sent no emails on the days I mentioned and it's clear someone did.

Patrick Colombo (to Real Eliza)

26/01/06

Eliza,
I got your mail, please i want you to clear me well because as you know that i have invested all my money in this business to come up to this stage,also minister is not happy with me the way your making our business hold as you can see Mr.MIKE Anderson is waiting for you to come and sign the money into your nominated account of your choice so Dane" please clear very well because i been recieving your mail,but you told me that your travelling to london on 25th. And notting happened to london Mr.Mike is not happy with you.

Please read below very well and get back to me quickly clear me who is the owner of this email address and this name (xxxxxxx)


(xxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.com)

Patrick,

I'm set to leave for London tomorrow with a stopover in Singapore. I se to arrive in London on Wednesday.

Is this thing still on? I haven't heard a word from that guy Anderson, he has got to be the most impolite individual I've ever tried to talk to. You would think he would at least acknowledge my email. What a creep! I can handle almost anything except stuffy, arrogant people and he's certainly not getting off on a good foot with me.

I'll be checking my email regularly over the next few days so stay in touch.

Affectionately,
Eliza

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

Dear Patrick,
I sent a note to Mr. Anderson last night asking him about things to do in London while I'm there. I got a response this morning but it was strictly about business. He seems like a very stuffy guy and he doesn't sound like he's going to be much fun while I'm there. I guess I can manage on my own.

I will pick up my tickets later this evening. I work part-time for a small company that I hope I will work for after I graduate and they're having an office party today that I am sort of obligated to attend. I'll go to the travel agent right after that.

Too bad Mr. Anderson turned out to be such an old poop. You have been very sweet to me and it's too bad you won't be there.

Eliza


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

I am waitnig to clear me .

Patrick.



Eliza Dane

Patrick,

I don't know what you're on about. I never sent any of the emails you attached, I don't know anything about that account you mentioned - what the hell is going on here?

The minister and Mr Anderson may not be happy but it's not my fault. I can't be blamed for breaking promises that I never made in the first place.

I'm going to mull over this for a bit. I'm starting to think that the computer virus was no accident. Someone must have wanted to cut me off from you.

I'll be back when/if I have any answers.

Regards,
Eliza



He sent this one three times as well!

Mr. Anderson,

How nice to hear from you again.

I am staying with a friend of mine who is with the Australian High Commission but he said that his phone is for business only and should only be used in the event of an emergency.

As I requested before, please send me your office location and a convenient time for us to meet there. My friend has put a car at my disposal so transportation is not a problem.

I expect to here from you.

Liza Dane



Eliza Dane

Mr Anderson:
Please confirm if you've been getting emails between 16 and 25 January in my name. I think someone is trying to trick you into paying over the money to someone other than me.

IIRC you sent me this exact same letter on or about 14 January - if the best you can do when I try to alert you to a possible threat is to regurgitate some form letter, then you're not taking me seriously. I don't like being brushed aside. Nor do I like getting three of everything - stop that, please!

Eliza Dane



Eliza Dane

Mr Anderson,

Be warned that the woman who has been communicating with you recently (between 16 and 25 January 2006) is an impostor who has my passport.

More details if needed.

Eliza Dane



Eliza Dane

Patrick.

It gets worse! I've just spent most of the day being grilled by DFAT, and forced to prove who I am, because SOMEONE STOLE MY PASSPORT!

That means that whoever is writing to you and to Mr Anderson may well have it! I've warned Mr Anderson.

I am so tired and depressed right now.

Eliza



Patrick Colombo (to Real Eliza)

27/01/06

Eliza,
I got your mail, you should be very careful with those your dealing with ok, like i told you before that minister warned you that you should not expose our business to any body till we achieved our efforts, minister also said you should be very carefull now since you said that you don't know any account which i am talking about. Sister you should not worry no body will cut you off in this business because the authorities has approvel the money in your name as the legal beneficiary of the fund, what you should do immediately is to contact Mr.Mike Anderson now and call him on phone explain everything to him clear about what is going on make sure you give him your private phone number to reach you easier tell him when the passport will be ready so that he will know when your coming to london to sign the legal documents to enable them to credit your account immediately in your presence while in london.

Be warned since people are monitoring you to know when the money goes into your account, minister said you should keep this business secret only your self till we achieved our goals ok.

Contact Mr.Mike Anderson now and seek advice from him update him the date your coming to london for the conclusions of successful business.

I am waiting to hear from you.

Patrick.

Mr. Anderson,

It's getting late. Are we going to do this or not?

Eliza Dane



Fake Eliza

January 28, 2006

Patrick,

What the hell is going on here? I'm in London but I'm getting no response from that guy Anderson. Zero. This is exasperating! He doesn't pick up his phone, he won't tell me where his office is, and he won't answer my email.

Why did you send me here? Was this your idea of a joke?



Eliza Dane

Patrick,

It's not as easy as you think. Since my original passport was stolen and is being used, I can't use my passport until the old one is tracked down and secured. My name would be on a watch list. God only knows how long it would take for my name to be cleared.

Also, you told me not to worry because the account is in my name. For God's sake, there's someone out there with everything needed to prove that she's Eliza Dane!

Who the hell is monitoring me? Do you mean I'm being watched here? Dear God, what have you got me into?

Eliza



Fake Eliza

January 29, 2006

Patrick,

First let me apologize to you for thinking that you were playing a joke on me by sending me here. I should have known you would not do something like that.

That said, I don't know how this guy Anderson was chosen to handle things from this end but he was definitely the wrong choice. I really want to help you Patrick but this guy is an insufferable prick and I don't think I can work with someone like that.

I told him that a friend was picking me up at the airport and that it wasn't necessary for him to meet me there. I'm staying with a guy I met at a club back home who works with the Australian High Commission here in London. He's been very nice to me, has taken me to see the sights here in London and has given me a car and driver to use while he's working. At least I'm getting a nice vacation out of this.

I asked Anderson several times to give me his office address and a time I could meet him but he refuses to respond. I've also tried calling him a number of times with no success.

I'm tired of messing around with this twit. He either sends me his office address and a time to meet him or I'm gonna head home next week.

Patrick, I hope that even if this whole thing falls through that you and I can stay in touch. You've been very sweet the whole time I've known you and would love to meet you someday. You never know when our paths might cross again.

Affectionately yours,

Eliza

Dear Friend,

I got your mail, listen very carefully i cannot understand you again you did not follow my instructions or the director incharge of your money like i told you befoer you should follow mMr.Mike instructions because he is the only person that minister instructed to credit your account in london but you not follow his instructions, how can i beleived you for what your talking about that your friend you met in club that is talking take of you, now i know that only you know what you came to london to do because this is not our arrangement, like i told you before that Mr.Mike Anderson is nice man, you told me that you never been in london before but now you told me again that a friend of you was picking you up from airport, now i know that your not really person to do this business with me, you did not follow my instructions, again minister said that he cannot trust you again since you started lieing to us.

My friend what you should do now is to follow his instructions because his the only person that making things easy for you, you should do anything he ask you to do immediately so that they will transfer your money to your account immediately while in london.

Again minister said if you cannot do what ,Mr.Mike Anderson talking about you should sign off the business immediately because your doing what you like in this business, i have to let you know that i have invested alot of money int his business to avoid lossing my money ok.

You should follow Mr.Mike instructions immediately while in london to enable the transfer your money immediately in london.

I am waiting to hear good news from you .

Yours,

Patrick



Patrick Colombo (to Real Eliza)

29/01/06

Eliza,
Mail received, i cannot understand you again please if your no longer interested in this project you let me know immediately so that we can look for another person who is capable to handle this money, what are you talking about the passport, have you contacted Mr.Mike .

Again if your not interested any more you let me ok, contact Mr.Mike now and seek adviced from because minister said that he is not happy with you the way your making things so difficulty for us as you know that the large ammount of money is not well adviced to stay on transit to avoid the authorities to send the money back to the national treasury.

Please make things easy for us because i have invested alot of money in this business and your the only person thsat holding this money to be transferd to your account.

Awaiting to hear from you.

Patrick



Eliza Dane

Patrick,

What don't you understand? Someone stole my passport, which means that the person who now has it could come and claim the money if you don't take care. I can't travel until this person is tracked down and arrested or I'll be the one under suspicion of travelling under a false name. Now do you understand? How dare you assume that this is all down to me losing interest? SOMEONE STOLE MY PASSPORT AND SET OUT TO TRICK YOU! How is that my fault? How dare the minister get angry at me? What have I done?

You've made me bloody angry Patrick; I'm going to leave off now before I type something I'll regret later.

I'll get back to you when I've calmed down and you've stopped being such a jerk.

Eliza Dane

Mr Anderson,

You are about as single minded as it's possible to be.

The fact is that my travel plans are totally messed up at the moment due to the fact that someone else has my passport and as a result, it has been cancelled. A new one will have to be issued, which means more delays.

I will let you know more as it comes to hand.

Eliza Dane

I did get back to you. Now you're not talking to me.

Why are you treating me like this? How is what happened my fault?

Mr Anderson,

Jesus wept! Are you a goddamned machine? There's some bitch out there who is out to rip us all off and all you can do is repeat the same old stuff.

The truth is I have no idea when I can fly out. DFAT is being really scummy about this (presumably because of the security breach) and there's no way I can hurry them up.



Eliza Dane



Fake Eliza

January 30, 2006

Patrick,

I have read your email a dozen times and I still cannot believe my eyes. What are you talking about?? You are accusing me of lying to you?? What instructions did I not follow??

Now you need to listen to ME, my friend - I was not given any instructions by your Mr. Anderson other than to let him know when I would arrive here and to contact him when I got here, both of which I did. I was polite enough to spare him the trouble of meeting me at the airport by telling him that my friend was picking me up. And who says I can't stay with a friend while I'm here?? I can stay with anyone I want to. Who does this guy Anderson think he is, my mother??

I have done everything just as I was told - I brought a photocopy of my passport, 2 passport photos and $14,388 (which, by the way, I took a real screwing on with the lousy exchange rate that I got). I told Anderson when I was arriving and I have tried numerous times to contact him since I've been here. I have asked him at least THREE times for his office address and a convenient time to meet and he refuses to respond. Now you tell me what instructions I haven't followed.

I have to tell you Patrick that I'm getting fed up with this whole mess, and it's mainly because this guy Anderson is an insufferable A-hole. And now you accuse me of lying! I can't believe this!

I have tried very hard to help you Patrick but if you feel that I'm not the right person then ok. I will enjoy the rest of my stay here and then return home.

I'm sorry it turned out this way.

Eliza

Subject: Make sure you follow his instructions now..

Dear friend,

Mail received,listen i cannot understand you anymore, according to minister he said that only you know what you came to london to do because what your doing is not in our arrangement atall, since you refused to tell Mr.Mike Anderson your hotel name , room and the phone to reach you easily also minister said that you should send us your phone number so that we can talk on phone send me the number immediately.

Contact the director now and make sure you follow his insrtuctions send the hotel name and your room number ok.

Await your urgent respond.

Patrick



Patrick Colombo (to Real Eliza)

31/01/06

Eliza,
I got your mail, it's well noted understood, you have to understand me why i am talking like that because i have invested alot of money in this business to bring it up to this stage ok, try to understand me clearly.

Again i am happy to inform you that there is new development from minister, according to minister he said that you should contact the director in london Mr.Mike Anderson, immediately ask him to help you made things easy for you before coming to london for the final signing the released fund order form, minister said you send Mr.Mike Anderson, the money for the released fund form which is $14,338. so that they will start processing the documents on your behalf before your arrived in london in person.

My, sister you have to take everything easy for your passport,aslo minister said that you should not worry your self, just take easy ok, he said it again nobody will cut you off in this business because you're the orginal name have been in the office of the authorities here in South Africa.

You should ask Mr.Mike to help you out, minister said you send him the $14,338 now before your arrive since you said that you don't know the actually time your passport will be ready to avoid cancellation your payment due to too much delay from your side because your the only one that is holding our money to be transfer to your account as the legal beneficiary of the fund, send him the money to enable them start processing the documents on your behalf, you should ask him the informations you will use to send him the money for the released fund order form, so that once you in london everything will be easy for you.

Await your urgent respond.

My sister take it easy ok, we are rich noting will stop our business with you remain blessed.

Your brother,

Patrick.



Eliza Dane

Patrick,

Your minister should think things through better - what could Mr Anderson do about my passport? DFAT marches to its own tune, no British banker can make them move any faster. And anyway, whatever I tell him, Mine Anderson replies with the same bloody form letter, wants to know my travel details. Aargh!

Please stop accusing me of delaying this whole matter, because - as I've told you, over and over again - my passport got stolen, how is that my fault?

Regards,
Eliza Dane



Eliza Dane

Mr Anderson,

I've been advised to ask you for the details needed to send money to you ahead of my trip. What's involved?

Eliza Dane



Fake Eliza

January 31, 2006

Patrick,

Do you even take the time to read my email or have you gone simple on me? How many times do I have to tell you that I'M NOT STAYING IN A HOTEL! I'M STAYING WITH A FRIEND I MET IN AUSTRALIA! I DID NOT REFUSE TO TELL ANDERSON ANYTHING! I TOLD HIM THAT I'M STAYING WITH A FRIEND! All my friend knows is that I'm here to do some business but he doesn't know any of the details.

Look, you told me that you and that minister guy have no trust in me anymore, that I'm not following instructions, that I have lied to you and I'm not the person you want to do business with. If this is the case then why are you still bothering me?

I have asked Anderson time and again to send me his office address and a time when I can meet him but both you and he refuse to do that. Why is that, Patrick? What is the big problem with us making an appointment to meet at his office? You and Anderson need to get your act together.

I really wanted to help you, Patrick, but I'm completely out of this transaction if I don't get a SERIOUS apology from you and an appointment from Anderson. It's up to you because I'm at the point now where I'm ready to take this $14,000 and do some SERIOUS shopping.

The ball is in your court.

Eliza

Patrick Colombo (to Real Eliza)

01/02/06

Dear Eliza,
I got your mail and I have concluded a meeting with the minister concerning what is going on, he said that you want to spoil the transaction, you refuse to follow his instruction, as you know we have invest alot of money in this transaction and we wouldn't want ant thing to spoil it, and according to the Minister he has found someone who is willing to help us complete the transaction, the man will take care of all the remaining expences, he will pay for the fee Mr. Mike is talking about, but the only promble is that the man what the transaction to be in his name and there is no way we can do that without you signing the below agreement below, if you sign the documents we can now take it to the Ministry and the Africa Development bank for a change ok, as you know your name is in all the approval and we can not do anything without you signing this letter below ok. My Sister, you don't have to worry about this, I will still give you something once we completed this transaction with this man, infact I would have like to complete this business with you than the man, but as you can see I don't have the money to complete the transaction with Mr. Mike, so this man will help ok, I will not forget you is a promise, so please sign the document and send it back to me.

Patrick,

Did you tell your smug little git of a minister what happened? Huh? Did you tell the little turd that my passport was stolen? DID YOU? Did you tell him that some bitch tried to rip is all off?

I've played straight with you all the way down the line, and my reward is to be fucked over just before the end. Well, get this; I am NOT going to sign your stupid paper. Tell the minister that I will finish what I started.

I asked Mike Anderson for the details so that I could pay him but the little twat hasn't deigned to reply. It's not down to me, it's down to your buddy, who needs a boot in the butt to give me the info I need. Tell the minister that.

Time for a personal kiss-off.

Hey there,

You know, the minister was right when he said I wanted to spoil the transaction, but he missed out on one thing - I knew there was no transaction, I knew that you were a 419 scammer trying to rip me off, and I knew that from the git go.

I had a lot of fun leading a dumbass mugu by the nose for such a long time; so much so, so that I called in a colleague to share the fun.

Now, admit it - don't you feel a bit - OWNED?
