E Mail: jidetiawo@atlas.cz

Dear Friend,

I am Barrister Jide Tiawo (Esq) a solicitor.I was the Personal Attorney to LATE ENGINEER HENRY WILLIAMS an oil merchant/contractor with CHEVRON PETROLEUM COMPANY here in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 1999, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a automobile accident and unfortunately they lost their lives.

Before my Client died, He had a huge fund deposit valued at US$9,000,000,00 Dollars in a Citi Trust Bank Ltd. here in Nigeria. As his personal Attorney, I am in possesion of all legal documents which shows the entire transaction between him and this security company in relation to this fund deposit.

Consiquently, the security company mandated me to look out for any of his extended family relatives to stand in as the next of kin/beneficiary of this fund deposit.

Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my clients extended family relatives, but to no avail. After many unsuccessful attempts, Idecided to trace his relatives over the Internet, but this attempt was equally unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, today, 11-02-2004, the Citi Trust Bank Ltd. gave me an ultimatum of Ten working days to provide the next of Kin or have this fund confiscated. This is why I have contacted you to render assistance in repartrating the money and properties left behind by my client, before they will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by this security company. Since I have been unsuccesful in locating the relatives for over two years, and coincidentally, you are from the same country, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin/beneficiary of late ENGINEER HENRY WILLIAMS fund deposit with this security company, for our mutual benefit.

For your assistance, you will be adequately compensated with 40% of the total sum. 55% will be for me, and 5% will be set aside to offset all incidential expences that might be incured in the cause of this transaction. eg phone call, payment of tax if so required by your government etc. This transaction is 100% risk free as I have all necessary legal documents to back up all our claims. I guarantee you that the entire transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law,as all documents/affidavit that will be required by Citi Trust Bank Ltd. before the release of the fund will be procurred legally from the federal high court of justice.

All I require from you is honesty and cooperation. Please realise that the confidentiality of this arrangement must be maintained from now,and even after the successful complition of this transaction,to enable us see this deal through.

If you will assist me, contact me via this email box or jidetiawo@atlas.cz for details. Thanks and God bless.

Best regards,

Barrister Jide Tiawo (Esq).


[That was your basic Dead Bank Customer letter.]


R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

I understand your concerns and therefore I would like to assist you in recovering Mr. Williams belongings which as I understand risk to be confiscated and thus lost for further usefull use. Please send me all documents/affidavit necessary to carry out the transaction. I prefer to receive my share of 4,500,000 USdollars by postcheque assignment.
hoping to hearing from you,
best regards,
R.E.Etkever



Mr. Tiawo does not reply, therefore:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
from your message I had the impression that there was an urgent aspect associated with your request. Some days passed since your message and I still haven't heard from you with regards to how to practically complete the mentioned transaction.
Please provide me with some more details about your plans,
best regards,
R.E.Etkever



Still no reply from Mr. Tiawo:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I am getting worried that it will not be so easy to get the money to a safe place out of Nigeria. After all Nigeria is in dark Africa and as I remember well people over there kill each other for peanuts. Remember Rwanda and Burundi, two countries close to Nigeria. How are you going to get the money out of the country? I cannot imagine that you will carry it in a suitcase and I don't think Nigeria, being a dark Africa country, is so advanced as to have electronic banking systems... Also how will we prove that I am the next of kin to Mr. Williams? what kind of official documents are needed for this? I am feeling rather nervous at the moment.
What will happen if the police investigate about all this money being transferred to another place outside Nigeria?
Please provide me with some more details to relieve my anxious feelings. I would appreciate if you could let me know how I can help you in a honest way to proceed with this project?
looking forward to your reply,
best regards,
R.E.Etkever



Aha, there is Mr. Tiawo and he sends me the death certificate!!!

JIDE TIAWO

Attn R.E.Etkever
First I appreciate your positive disposition towards assisting me actualize this deal.
However, You request for an upfront payment of USD4500, is irreconcilable.
FYI, If there was a way of my processing the release of these money without a foreigner playing that pivotal role As his next of kin, in your slightest Imagination I will not crave your indulgence.
I am a seasoned Lawyer; I am in position to ascertain loopholes, I did my homework very well before contacting you.
I have attached the death Certificate for your reference. I have the relevant backup documents to authenticate the claim, at the bank All I need from you is the Human element. I am deeply convinced that if we put heads together, we will affect the release of Mr. Williams Money to you as his relative. We can negotiate on the Sharing Ratio.
Please If you are not disposed, treat this information as if you never came across it,
Thanks for your understanding.
J. Tiawo.





R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
thank you for your reply. As you certainly know good communication is the corner stone of all interhuman relationships.
If there is a need for the human element we have to be open about our interrelational communications. As I notice from your reply, it seems that some slight misunderstanding may have arisen concerning the content of my first email. I therefore understand your feeling of being offended and will not reciproque in the same way. But as I will explain below I will try to clarify the contents of my email so that we can go ahead with mutual feelings of trusting friendship.
Of course my professional experience is not in the field of seasoning lawyers and that is why I asked you all the questions about how to continue with this project.
I am indeed not so familiar with legal loopholes concerning Nigerian administration. So that is why I want to assure you that I am relying totally at your undisputed experience in the legal and administrative matters such as we are presently discussing.
However, in my first email, not knowing about how this deal will be carried out in practice and concerning the fact that you promised half the share of 9,000,000.00 USD, I expressed my preference for receiving my share of 4,500,000.00 USD by post cheque assignment whenever the money is available to be shared between the two of us.
So, I was not requesting an upfront payment of USD 4,500.USD! I was just informing you that I prefer to receive my share of 4,500,000.00 USD by post cheque assignment as soon as the money becomes available to us.
Therefore, I want to reassure you that I want to be available to be the human pivotal element in your processing of the release of the money of late Mr. Williams (God bless him and his family). Now that we have clarified our interrelational communication, I would like to express that I appreciate you sending me Mr. Williams death certificate. I was wondering whether I should check with the hospital to see if we can repatriate the body and recover some of his belongings? Oh yes, I remember you wrote me that also his wife and beloved daughter died in the automobile accident. If we want to convince the Nigerian officials, maybe it is good that I show some interest in their unfortunate remainings? That is what one would expect of a next of kin, isn't it?
So, you see, I am trying to be of help to you to act as convincing next of kin to Mr. Williams and providing you with helpfull suggestions! Let us coordinate our actions so as to be most efficient and succesfull,
best regards,
R.E.Etkever

PS: I used all three email addresses because I am not sure which one you prefer?

I am very excited about Mr. Tiawo's interaction and can't wait to send him another mail:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I am so glad we have a clear understanding thanks to the email that you sent and to which I was able to provide a further clarified understanding!
Yesterday I was so nervous about several practical aspects of this deal.
But for example the death certificate apparently shows that you know how to obtain the right documents!
Although Nigeria might be in the darkest of dark Africa, you managed to bring some light in the darkness of my uncertainties, namely about the practical aspects of this undertaking.
Although I am considering myself the luckiest person in the world that you have chosen me to undertake this deal, I am still wondering how everything will happen.
However, I am so excited about the end result that I can bearely control the adrenaline flow in my blood.
I also have the impression now that you are a lawyer which has been seasoned thoroughly so as to be able to ascertain all the holes and pitts dug by the administration.
What do you think about my suggestion that I should contact the hospital to show interest as beingthe next of kin to Mr. Williams?
I think it will convince them that I am his next of kin, if I ask at least to recover some of his personal belongings. What do you think?
yours truly,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

Dear R.E.Etkever
I appreciate you clear understanding of the transaction, Like I rightly pointed out, If we have to do this, it MUST be done well, there should be no mistakes.
For your Information, You do not need to contact the Hospital; they are not instrumental to processing of this money out of the bank.
First, I would want to clarify certain Issues before we proceed.
1/What is your line of Business?
2/Do you have a well serviced account that can accommodate huge amount of money without raising eyebrows from your Bankers.
3/If yes, Do you have a good relationship with your bankers?, Can they allow you transfer my share witching 48Hrs of your receiving the funds as Next of Kin to Mr. Williams?
Kindly clarify these Issue to enable us draw an Agreement Document, which will clearly state the terms conditions of this deal as it affects you and I.
Finally and Most Importantly under no circumstance should you disclose any information concerning this until we move the money out of here. You know Information in wrong hands could be counter-productive.
Kindly forward your Contact Information [Tel& fax] for effective communication
I await your immediate response.
Thanks
Jide Tiawo



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
first of all I would like to thank you for your reciprocal clarity of understanding. I fully agree with you that in order to avoid all possible mistakes and/or misunderstandings, we must attempt to creat utmost clarity in our communications. You will certainly agree that such utmost clarity is the cornerstone of all trustfull exchange processes. Therefore I would like to ask for your understanding if ever I may ask questions which may originate of my own poor understanding. Indeed, since I informed you that my profession is not in the field of seasoning lawyers, I may not be aware of certain aspects and details which accompany transactions of high administrative complexity. Therefore it will be possible that I ask questions which at first sight may appear to be rather stupid, but which originate from my ignorance in such subject-matters.

As far as the hospital question is concerned, I am a little suprised that there is no need for me to provide some evidence by acting as Mr. Williams next of kin? Showing interest in what happened with the body and personal belongings would be expected of a true next of kin, isn't it? By the way, were you able to recover some of his personal belongings or have they been confiscated?

I am happy that I can inform you that I am involved in rather extensive international business. As you know, in such business the transfer of large amounts of money is like two hands on one belly. Upto now I have never seen that one of my bankers was raising one eyebrow, nor even two eyebrows or more! My relationship with my bankers is extremely good. As an illustration I can tell you that last weekend I was invited to attend the party of the first birthday of my bankdirectors grandson! However, you may well be aware that for the transfer of large amounts of money, which do not originate from my business, the bankers may request additional documents, private or business evidence, official declarations and affidavits which justify such transactions from a legal point of view. But as a thoroughly seasoned lawyer, I assume that you are aware of such procedures and requests.

In order to avoid that you will feel offended, I need to inform you that I have to go on a trip to Japan this evening. To show my trust in our relationship, I would like to inform you that this trip is for making the necessary arrangements for marrying my Japanese wife, Bo Nobo. This also is evidence that I am truly involved with international endives. So please, don't be impatient if I don't manage to reply as quickly as before in the next coming days. As you are certainly aware wedding negotiations are a lengthy and time consuming business besides the fact that they cause also great financial trouble. Not only the wedding needs to be financed, but also the family-in-law requests sometimes exhorbitant presents which are not so good for a healthy personal financial situation. However, Bo Nobo being so cute and attractive, I have great trouble to deny to meet their indulging requests.

Anyway, I am certainly looking forward to receiving more details about our transcation,

yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



No reply from Mr. Tiawo, therefore another mail with some help from the insult generator http://www.insultmonger.com/generators/index.htm:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

can you believe it! The stupid airline lost one of my suitcases and of course the one with the presents for my future family-in-law! These airline people are ineffably appalling scoundrels and a wearisome, nostril-offending proof that evolution can go in reverse! The rank boil-brained coxcombs! The bubbleheaded, gibbon-raping, jock strap-slurping, ass-gobbling, hemorrhoid-chewing, wank-headed sausage jockeys... sorry for my language but I AM just a little pissed off at the moment. ...

Anyways, luckily I found out about it during my stop over in Singapore. I am presently trying to fix this big annoying problem, because you know, not bringing any presents (especially to your future family-in-law) in Japan is considered as a hughe hughe offence. So now I am momentarily stuck in Singapore trying to fix it. Also my business firm is bothering me with all sorts of "urgent" issues. So I am sure you can imagine that the situation is quite hectic!

Because of my jet-lag I can not sleep and because I am pissed off, that is why I take the opportunity to get in touch with you in between all these annoyances. You know, because of the international nature of my business, my firm has set up a very sofisticated system to allow communication between employers and customers all over the world in a most efficient way. Everything happens electronically, because secretaries would just not be able to cope efficiently with such a hughe flow of information. So, for example, we got all this little beautiful state-of-the-art laptop computer which allows us instantationeously to connect with the internet, and acces our central server system! And it just fits in the pocket of your jacket! Isn't this technology simply marvellous?

The good thing about it is that I also am able to contact you in between this hectic situation and at this unconventional hour of the day.You know, because of the jet-lag I lost my sense of time a little. That is the only little trouble I have with our firm's international endives! These endives just screw up my biological timing.
As I explained to you in my previous letter, this wedding plan with my beloved Bo Nobo is throwing up in my face and it more an more looks like becoming a great financial burden which will be too heavy to carry. And that is why you are the shining light in the darkness of my personal trouble, saving me from impending disaster!
So that is why, we MUST go ahead with our project because I am in dare need to sanify my present position and personal finances.
Hence, I URGE you to let me know how to further proceed!

Although I will be travelling internationally quite extensively, I am trying to do all that is necessary to keep in touch regularly. Fortunatly, very fortunatly, as I explained before, my company provides this extremely sophisticated means to allow us to set up super efficient global communication.

So far I suggested to contact the hospital to enquire about the body and personal belongings. But you appear not to approve of this suggestion. I guess you must have been able to recover their personal belongings when you obtained the death certificate that you send to me?
Maybe I could contact Chevron? They for sure can be of assistance with your deal.
So, I am anxious to the success of our deal and I am trying to make suggestions to be of your assistance.
I remember that you told me that I am to play a pivoting role in this undertaking, however, upto now the details of this pivoting are not clear at all!
That is why I ask you URGENTLY to provide me with further details, so that we can coordinate our future actions in the most efficient way possible. Indeed, my international travels will require us to carefully plan in advance any coordinative action we need to intiate!

looking forward to your reply,

best regards,
R.E.Etkever

Still no reply from Mr. Tiawo, so I sent another mail:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

I just remembered that you had to deal with a ten day limit!
Do you realise that this limit date is almost over!???

If not, please let me know because considering my situation I really need this money,

best regards,

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

I was able to solve my luggage problem satisfactorily (those spongy fool-born bugbears!) and arrived safely in Japan. My future parents-in-law were satisfactorily impressed by my gifts and we are now in the process of negotiating the wedding conditions. As you may be aware, in Japan one has to comply to many formalistic rules and etiquette. And besides that they are real tough negotiators! They have now retreated to discuss the terms and conditions so far and that is why I am able to check whether you have been able to reply to my messages. Luckily we have in addition to our marvelous pocket lap-top computer a total security device for build-in satellite connections which allows me to connect to our central computer server which manages our Electronic Post Office system (EPO system). If I can manage I'll send you a picture of these amazing pocket laptop satelite connecting devices.

I wish to express my sorrow feelings for your family member for whom you had to attend the funeral. By the way, I am not sure to know where "Hither land" is located? You know, I am always interested in the whereabouts of my international contacts. But I hope you have been able to be comforted and I hope that your beloved member will rest in peace.

Reading your email, I am becoming aware of the complex nature of this deal! I agree with you that we have to carefully prepare our actions to carry out this deal succesfully and without mistakes or assumptions. Because we need to coordinate our actions I would beg you for some time to study your document. Being in the middle of my wedding negotiations, it is a little problematic to assess at this very moment all the implications of the complex procedure you are suggesting. I need to carefully study your message so as to figure out the exact nature our respective duties.

Sorry to interrupt my message here, but I am being called to continue the negotiations,

I'll be back,

yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

Good, the procedure is not as Complex as you think, its all about carefullness and properarticulation.

Please Endeavour to make a Formal Contact with the Bank tomorrow.

Goods Luck.

JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

phweeew! Tough guys this future family-in-law, especially the mother!!! Although my fiancee is doing her best to soften their demands, it is a realy though negotiation. I never had such negotiations with our clients! You can imagine! Well, actually, I suspect that it is mainly her mother who is craving such indulgence. Anyways, because my heart is completely filled with my beloved Bo Nobo, I simply have to include one of our holiday pictures on Hawai beach in this mail. You must agree that she is such a lovel beautifull creature that she is defintily worth all the effort?

Anyways, back to our deal, during the breaks inbetween my wedding negotiation, I am trying to consider the procedure from many points of view and in all details to make sure that I have well understood every aspect so as to avoid all possible mistakes. If I remember well, you mentioned that our deal is a CONFIDENTIAL deal? now in order to organise the activities from my side, I just want to know how much confidentiality should be involved with our transaction?

Please inform me about this CRUCIAL aspect of CONFIDENTIALITY before I undertake any further actions.


[Here Etkever includes a picture of a babe.]


R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

Unfortunatly, my business firm has interrupted my wedding negotiaqtions because a problem of high urgency occured on one of our construction sites in France (Europe). So nowthat I am waiting in the airport for my airplane, I am taking the time get in touch with you.

You may wonder why I asked the question about confidentiality? But I think you are not aware of my precarious position to this respect, so let me explain myself so as to elucidate the issue of confidentiality to you. Than you will also understand that why the suggested procedure causes indeed increased complexity of execution. So in order to provide proper articulation, I may repeat some things I said before. However, this is necessary for utmost clear understanding of the complex problems on our path to succesful carrying out this deal.

Now, as I explained before, my business firm has developped this highly sofisticated means of global communication through what we call in our business firm the "Electronic Post Office" system (which I will call EPO system for convenience of writing). This EPO systems handles all information flow in our firm: telephone calls, fax, telex, email and normal mail. In handling this information almost no people are involved, everything happens ELECTRONICALLY. Even the regular mail is treated in an electronic way!


For example to illustrate the level of sophistication, let me give you an example: I mentioned before that we can make use of this state-of-the-art satelite connection device. If you look at the picture you will notice that the top part serves for connecting physically with the laptop computer. The bottom part comprises three independent satelite receivers. Once you want to activate the satelite connection, each receiver tracks an independent satelite for secure information exchange. However, upon making the connection, also the Global Positioning System is activated. In this way the head office keeps track of the whereabouts of its employers and is being able to monitor all exchanges that occur.

So, back to the issue of confidentiality. I understand that no secretary should be involved by sending the fax for me. However, as I mention above, for business purposes and customer satisfaction ALL our means of communication are being globally monitored and centrally recorded by our EPO system, except for acronymified email accounts and regular mail labeled "personal/confidential". For your information and peace of mind, I am presently using such an acronymified email account, so it is perfectly secure.
As you now may realise, my problem of confidentiality is very complex and I am actively thinking about ways to get around it. Once, I am in Europe, I'll drop by our EPO system administrator to see if I can set up another secure means of communication. Untill than I am afraid that the only secure and confidential way to communicate is via my acronymified email account.

So, I am very much willing to get in touch with the bank that you mentioned to me, but than you need to provide me with the correct email addres of the person in charge of dealing with the issues of our late Mr. Williams.
I hope you know have a better understanding of the complex problem of confidentiality in my business firm and that we may have to resort to not so cenventional means of secure communication.

Than by studying your procedure, I notice that there is a second aspect I need to take care off for good coordination of our mutual actions. Namely, I need to make the necessary arrangements with my bank in order to get an account ready for receiving the money. As I know the bank manager of our private company financial institution very well, this should not be a big problem. However, I will have to enquire under covered terms how they would treat such cases because it relates essentially to a transfer of private funds and not business funds. And I have to extract from them whether they will need some documents for legal purposes. Because I will be in Europe soon, I'll be able to talk informally with my friend at the bank and see what is needed to correctly set up everything for receiving the funds that will be transferred in order to avoid any mistakes and misunderstanding at a later stage of the process.

Hoping to have clrafied my precarious position,
yours sincerly,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

I appreciate your work load, but you need to get focused on this transaction, Since its difficult for you to send a fax now ,you can send an email to the Bank, Find out their email from their website http://www.firstatlantics.com,the
Email Address of Bank is
info@firstatlantics.com
There is no particular officer in the bank that is In charge of Mr. Williams Case, Just Contact the Bank today via email, so that they know that you are serious in getting your brothers money. In terms of Confidentiality, there should be a high degree of it, your secretary can send faxes to the bank, but they should not know that you are not the real Next Of Kin to Mr. Williams.. Let me have your details to enable me draft the Agreement and other relevant documents.
Treat as Urgent.

Now a fake insult mail to my collegue C.O. La Slurper, accidentally sent to Mr. Tiawo. The insult mail was generated thanks to http://www.insultmonger.com/generators/index.htm:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. C.O. La Slurper,
I couldn't believe my eyes when I received the picture of the accident that happened at our construction site!!!



What the hell do you think you are doing!? Do you realise the value of such equipment?
Not to mention the financial loss and delay you cause to the construction project?
YOU have less value than a festering discharge from a leper's rectum in Calcutta. Do your keepers a huge favor: cover yourself in honey and headbutt a beehive, you pitiful pimplebrained utter waste of skin. I think you realise I am really getting pissed off!!! Technically, you're a man. Technically, so is a she-male Ladyboy from Thailand. In reality, you're nothing more than a pitiful gin-sodden excuse for anything other than a rancid fuckweasle! Married, eh? Since when did brother and sister marriages become legal? Average looking, my ass. You're uglier than the south-facing end of north-bound mule with a ruptured ulcerated fly-covered rump. You're the typical left-wing, know-nothing, good-for-nothing, bleeding heart bungling bum who thinks the world owes you a living for doing nothing but farting into the ozone layer. Calling you a pea brain would be an insult to peas, you jellyfish-sucking mental midget. How come you're so tall? Did your mother mate with a giraffe? If you were ever kidnapped and eaten by a cannibal tribe, they'd all die of high cholesterol, you fat, flabby, fumbling fuck. You couldn't get a job cleaning shit off a toilet, you utterly useless wrinkled balloon in a muddy puddle of goat's piss. You couldn't look like a bigger ass in that outfit if you were attached to the backside of Oprah. I've come across decomposing animal carcasses that are less offensive than you are.
You better make sure to have at least 12,500,000.00 EURO available to fix this problem when I arrive.
Please make the necessary arrangements with Dr. Jules Sezaar, our corporate finacial manager. Yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



Mr. Tiawo's reply is quite clear:

JIDE TIAWO

I DON'T THINK THIS IS FOR ME.


Now back to the regular business:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

big chaos over here in middle Europe! You certainly heard about the raging snow storms. My airplane got diverted and I experienced further severe delays to the point that my company send a car to fetch me at the airport.The negative thing about the whole story was also that I was in the impossibiltiy to use my satelite phone because as you know, these devices disturb the electronic gyroscopes of the airplanes. However, now being in a car and on my way to the construction site, I have some time to follow up on our deal.

First of all, my apologies for the mistaken mail that ended up in your mail box. In my anger I plugged in the wrong email address. So please consider as if you never received this email.

Thanks for your understanding about my confidentiality problems. I don't think letting my secretary send copies is a good idea. My Irish secratry, Cl O'Patra , is very cute (she walks on the catwalk at fashion shows), but also very curious (what else would you expect from women...). So let us stick to email untill I have been able to talk to our Electronic Post Office systems manager to figure out an alternative means for secure communication.

In order for our deal to progress, I will undertake the following actions right away:
1) send the email to mr. Williams bank
2) contact my friend at the bank to find out about the administrative hurdles we have to take.

I suggest you send a draft of our agreement by email to me, than I will insert the remaining information to complete the draft agreement and mail it back to you for approval. Once we reach agreement on the contents of the agreement we can than both date, sign and stamp it.

I'll keep you update on further progress,
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



Just to frighten Mr. Tiawo:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I just got a Delivery Failure message for the firstatlantic bank as well as a security warning!
Please check whether the message came through or not?
Now I start trying to get some more fake documents from Mr. Tiawo:

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

in the mean time I took the opportunity of the incident at our construction site to contact our finacial corporate manager, Dr. Jules Sezaar, and after official business enquired under covered terms how the bank would deal with situations like those of Mr. Williams. In his opinion such transfers are very sensitive matter and for the banks own legal and administrative security they will have to make a paper file which should contain a certain number of offical documents which support the validitiy of such money transfers. Not that these documents will be used for any further investigation, they only serve to show that the bank from her side has done everything legal within their possibilities.

Dr. Sezaar further explained to me that there are two phases setting up an account for such matters and each phase needs to be backed up by official documents.
Now, the two phases are:
1) opening the account
2) transferring the money

For the second phase regarding the money transfer Dr. Sezaar told me that the bank will request a certain number of documents, namely:
1) Death Certificate
2) Legacy statement
3) Legal authorisation from the Ministry Department of Legal Affairs
4) Official claim document certified by the Court at the residence address of the bank.
I have the impression that these documents more or less correspond with the documents you appear to need for processing the claim at Firstatlantics bank. Please be so kind to also provide me with a copy for my supporting the future money transfer.

For the first phase, namely opening the account, the bank will request further documents that shouldn't be too difficult to provide.
First of all, they request copy of the documents with regards to the identity of my contact person, which is you.
The documents from which you should provide a copy are:
1) a copy of your identity card or intenational passport or driver's licence
2) a copy of your lawyer diplome
3) evidence of your seasoning
4) Next the bank will request a document called "Power of Attorney". I think this relates to evidence that Mr. Williams allowed you to act as his lawyer.
5) With regards to Mr. Williams, they will want to have a copy of his identity card or intenational passport or driver's licence. I told them that Mr. Williams died in an accident, but they answered that dying does not destroy his identity documents (typical administration logic, isn't it?).
6) the bank will also want a copy of a certain document entitled "Permitting Licence for Expatriates".

Than finally, Dr. Sezaar also informed me that there will be costs associated with opening such an account as well as administrative costs for processing the legal documents. Actually, it doesn't mean anything, just that they will charge us a certain amount of money for setting up the account. As I have such a good business contact with you upto now, I don't want you alone to carry the burden of all these costs and I suggest we can split the cost 50/50. Dr. Sezaar could not tell me as of yet the exact costs involved. The exacts costs will only be known at the moment of starting effectively the procedure of setting up the account. I suggest also that I shall inform you in due time about the exact costs so as there will be no hidden surprise for you.

Dr. Sezaar told me also that if we could provide evidence of Mr. Williams being married, that costs could be lowered. As evidence he listed of course the wedding contract, but apparently also simple material evidence such as for example a wedding ring would be sufficient to proving that Mr. Williams was married. It would be interesting if you could obtain such evidence and having it ready for when it will be necessary.

As you can see, I have made important progress in organising our deal, and I am looking forward to further receiving your information, please send me all of the above listed documents so as to being able to start my part of the duties, In the mean time I'll try to contact our EPO systems administrator to figure out a secure way in which we can confidentially exchange financial and other correspondence related to our deal.

yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever

Dear Sir,
LETTER OF CLIAM/ AUTHORISATION

REF; ENG.HENRI WILLIAMS

This is to promptly notify you that I am a brother to late Eng. Henri, William ,he held an account [Ref; A/C.3 775609] with your branch.

Due to my health problem It is practically impossible for me to come down to process the transfer of this deposit to our Country, Hence this Letter, I am Authorizing his attorney, Barrister. Jide Tiawo of J. Tiawo &Co, attorneys at law, Notary Public] ,to commence the processing of this deposit. On my behalf It would be appreciated if my Application is giving prompt attention as Mr. Williams Creditors are threatening to seize his properties . Documents to authenticate this claim will be forward in due course.
Thank for your Cooperation.

Cc J, Tiawo &Co



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I tried again to send the letter to the firstatlantics bank and this time it did not give an error message. So I assume the firstatalantics bank must have received my letter of claim. Please let me know about your further endeavours,
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

Sorry for My late reply I had a Court Brief.
I appreciate you effort in making sure that we have a hitch free transfer of this Money out of here. Hence it is of paramount importance that I clarify the Modalities here for you so that we can align both of them so achieve our Goal. Like I keep saying if it must be done it MUST be done well, No mistakes No assumptions.
All documents which will Authenticate this Claim are within reach, and all are verifiable, all there references are in Place, I did my home work very well before having the inclination to carry it out. I was reliably informed that the bank has an Online Banking Facility was trying to find out what it takes to set up an account from there website but the Connection was poor so I couldnt, Find out from their homepage;.www.firstatlantics.com
I learnt they are the Pioneers of Online Banking here, in Nigeria so, we can effect transfer in Batches using their online Facility We cannot transfer the entire amount in a single transaction. We must present Money Laundering/Anti-Terrorist Clearances, which its not in our best interest,

In effect If we get through the Validity Check of our Claim, and approval is given, You as his Brother can set up an Online account, the bank will be happy, you can even ask for investment plans on the guise that the family wants to invest here in Nigeria, With that, we can share and Move our money to Different account at our convenience without going through banking bureaucracy.

So there is no need informing your bank of such now. To me I think its too early. All I need to do is to follow up the Application, you submitted today since I was copied as Mr. Williams Lawyer. I will provide all documents within the legal framework of Such Claim. With me here and you out there, I guarantee our getting the Approval you must sound real and convincing..
As for My ID, I will send after we must signed Agreement/Memorandum of understanding], I also need your [International passport, residential/office address] As the Protagonist of this Deal, apart from the Agreement, You will also Issue to me an uncircumstantial Promissory Note, to give me my share as soon as you receive the Funds from First Atlantic Bank,.
.I also need you Full Details to make the necessary inputs in the relevant Documents[Affidavits]. Good that you have sent an email to the Bank,, I would preferred if you had Faxed it ,they pay more attention to Fax Correspondences that to Emails.
Try and Fax the Document Make sure its Properly signed.
That is the starting Point.
I await your Comments/Questions.

The following mail is pretty clear. I want to act as Mr. I.K.Benne in order to be able to make Mr. Tiawo angry:

I.K. BENNE

Dear Sir,

I am a collegue to Mr. R.E.Etkever, my name is I.K.Benne. I have been charged with dealing with Mr. R.E.Etkever's most urgent business because Mr. R.E.Etkever was in an airplane accident when his airplane arrived from France in Munich (Germany). As you know, we are presently experiencing severe winter conditions and the airplane after arrival slipped off the road and crashed into a building (cf. picture below). For your assurance, Mr. R.E.Etkever has not been gravely injured, but he is being kept for observation in the hospital for some days.



I don't really understand the business Mr. R.E.Etkever is having with you, so I suggest that you await his return. If the investment that you mention in your message relates to our bungalow project, than I can assure you that the project is progressing satisfactorily (cf. picture below).

yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

Sorry to hear about your accident.However, some person contacted me, but I dont feel very safe discussing with him, I await your response before I go to the Bank to verify Issues.Please Reply as soon as you get this letter.

JT



Mr. Tiawo is getting nervous:

JIDE TIAWO

i hope you are getting better.
please Confirm if the Bank has recieved tha Application.
Treat as Urgent, becuae ilearnt the banks external Auditors are coming Mid next month, So we must act fast.

I await your signal.
JT



I.K. BENNE

Dear Sir,
Mr. R.E.Etkever is still in the hospital. He has a severe brain concussion and has to remain in the dark for at least another two weeks. Furthermore he has apparently also a dislocated discus problem which will force him to be immobilised for some more time to come. The doctors will clarify this issue when he has recovered from the brain concussion.

However, since you label your business with Mr. R.E.Etkever as being urgent, I will see if I can be allowed to talk about your business to Mr. R.E.Etkever although he is not supposed to be involved in any activities and should remain in total quietness for at least another two weeks.

Since our EPO systems administrator gave me full access to his acronymified emails to take care of ongoing business, I tried to understand your correpsondence with him. A bank called First Atlantics Plc. sent a message regarding some sort of "validation of claim". As far as I understood there is a need for some exchange of documents. Unfortunatly I have no acces to Mr. R.E.Etkevers personal documents. However, I think there should be no problem to already send by email copies of the documents he requested from you.

In any case, I will try to be allowed to talk to Mr. R.E.Etkver about this matter,and I will inform you in due time about his reply. So I would like to ask for your patience and understanding,

yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

Sorry to hear of his Problem.
However our Project needs urgent Attention, Please Can you forward the Letter from the Bank so that I know the Next Step to take. Tell him, if he cannot handle this due to his Health problem can he Delegate You or some other persons who is Capable.
I need Immediate Response to this before Monday Afternoon.
I wish him quick recovery.
JT



I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

1) I was able to talk shortly to Mr. R.E.Etkever. Mr. R.E.Etkever asked me, I.K.Benne, to follow up this interaction he is having with you for as long as he has to remain in the hospital.

2) below you 'll find the mail from the bank as you asked.

3) Mr. R.E.Etkever asked me to take care of this business. I don't really like it because it has nothing to do with our official business. But because Mr. R.E.Etkever is a very close friend, I'll try to do this in between my double job demands. Don't forget I am also taking care of Mr. Etkevers job duties at the moment!!!

4) I analysed the correspondence between you and Mr. Etkever and I noticed that Mr. Etkever gave you a lot of information about himself and about our business (accidentally you even got a confidential mail!!!). However, I could NOT find any tangible information related to YOU! So basically, you could be anybody pretending to be Mr. Tiawo!!!

5) So to make things clear, before I continue this interaction, I want to see
- a copy of your identification card
- a copy of your Lawyer diplome
- proof that you REALLY are the legal representative of Mr. Williams

Mr. R.E.Etkever is a real nice guy, but I don't have his patience and since I have now to add Mr. Etkevers job to mine, I don't have time to mess around with some obscure individual that I barely know.

So, I want you to send me the documents by email before anything else,

Yours sincerely,
Mr. I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

Attn;Mr. I.K.Benne

First I am very sorry for Mr. Ekever present problem. As a matter of fact I see your letter as rather Harsh, filled with unguided utterances,, You just got in the Middle of things and you are already sounding very bossy, Too Bad.
For your Information I am not begging for his assistance, we had an agreement, I have to play my part while he does his, its unfortunate he is in the hospital, Your been privy to the goings on should not make you make unguided utterances about my personality. For your Information, I am a renowned Lawyer, with verifiable track records. I should be the one to be bothered about your credibility.
As of Documents you requested for.
I will forward the documents, but you must also reciprocate, I want to be very sure of whom I am dealing with.
Its very important I talk to you not just on email, so I need your Direct Tel# or Call me 234-1-7761229[Ext 106]
I await your response/call.
Greetings to Mr. Ekever

Jide Tiawo,



I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
No messing around please, just to make things clear: No identification = No business.
Mr. R.E.Etkever has to remain in the hospital at least till the end of next week.
This means you have about one week and a half to send by email the following documents:
1) - a copy of your identification card
2) - a copy of your Lawyer diplome
3) - proof that you REALLY are the legal representative of Mr. Williams
4) - a copy of your verifiable track records (as mentioned in your mail)
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

I travelled out of town today wads Public Holidays in Lagos State I will follow it up tomorrow.

I think all is well.
JT



JIDE TIAWO

Attn; I.K.Benne
For the avoidance of doubt, I have attached my ID[international Passport] and My Certificate Of Administration.
I would want you to forward your as well for Clarity.
Please Note that these Documents are classified and should related as such.
JT




[Plus there was a dandy "certificate" from the Nigerian Bar, suitable for e-framing.]


I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

thank you very much for the copy of your ID and the certificate of administration. Your cooperation is very much appreciated!
I am presently on a business trip and will see Mr. R.E.Etkever at the end of next week.
Still some documents are missing... I hope to receive them by email before I talk to Mr. Etkever.
Awaiting the rest of the documents listed below,
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne

2) - a copy of your Lawyer diplome
3) - proof that you are the legal representative of Mr. Williams
4) - a copy of your verifiable track records (as mentioned in your mail). In other words, evidence of your seasoning. No need for loads of documents. Some (photographic) evidence is OK.



JIDE TIAWO

Sincerely this getting embarrasing,I am the Protagonist of this Project, I in all fairness have giving you two of my classified Documents.
In the First Place chat do you mean by
2) - a copy of your Lawyer diplome Do you mean a Copy of My degree result from the University,? If that is what you mean, You must be asking too much at this preliminary stage. In order words are you doubting the fact that I am not a Lawyer?
I am not searching for a Job for you to put me through such an uncompromising Scrutiny.
If what I have sent to you does not erase your doubt about my Person, Then You and Mr . Etkever.
Should better forget about this transaction, I surely will make alternative arrangement.
So kindly inform him sabot my Position.
Thanks.
JTiawo



I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
this has only to do with establishing sound business.
You have untill the end of next week to make a copy those documents and send them by email.
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



No reply from Mr. Tiawo, so I sent him another mail:

I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I tried to call the number you mentioned in your mails. I was never able to get a connection. When I tried via our EPO system, I got a security warning...
Don't forget to send the remaining documents before the end of the week,
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

What # did you call? and what Security warning did you recieve.? you must have dialled a Wrong #,
I suggest You learn how to be Polite in your Mails. I am not ready for such .
If you want to call me Call me on my Office Tel # 234-1-7761229ext 106]
You should stop putting a note of finalitry in your request for documents.
Enough is enough.

J tiawo.



I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I don't realy understand the fuzz your are making about sending these documents.
If you have them, it shouldn't be a big deal to put them on the scanner and mail a copy.
Anyways, I'll talk to Mr. R.E.Etkever on the basis of whatever documents you provide and I'll tell him my personal opinion.
You can only have benefit in securing my support to this deal.
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

My, dear friend,
Sending the Documents is not the Issue, its the circumstances surrounding it,
Why should I forward all my Classified and Professional Documents to you?, I have sent Two Important documents to Clarify My Person, you are still insisting on my sending you my Degree result, How does it sound to you?
Meanwhile, I have not received any form of document from you to clarify your person as well; I dont even have your Full Contact Information.
Please I am a serious minded person, I dislike been taking for granted.
Tell Mr. Mr. R.E.Etkever,that I am not pleased with the Manner this transaction is going, .
I might forced to make alternative arrangement, I am not searching for a Job so I wonder why you have to put me through such an uncompromising scrutiny, at my level, too bad.
Have a Rethink.



I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I see your issue and you are correct about the circumstances. Actually I understand that you want to see some documents from Mr. Etkever.
OK, I'll ask him, but since he still is in the hospital this circumstance may be a little complicated.
I'll see what Mr. Etkever suggests about how to proceed with his private documents. As you understand I don't have unlimited access to his privates.
In the mean time it would be convenient if you could send me whatever document you feel OK about to send, because it would in any case advance the deal more efficiently,
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

This business is not about sending documents, to you or Mr, Mr. Etkever., I dont thick you know the nature and dimension of this transaction, If he wants you to take over then He should give you the details.I am not ready for delays anymore, if by Monday I did not hear rom him or you, I definitely will make alternative arrangement.

Thanks or your understanding.

.Jtiawo.



I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I talked to Mr. Etkever yesterday.
He is not very happy with the way I am dealing with this case and he wants to deal with it personally to avoid any further misunderstandings.
However, he has to stay immobile in the hospital for another week.
So he will contact you next monday and asks for your understanding considering these exceptional circumstances.
yours sincerely,
I.K.Benne



JIDE TIAWO

Very Good, Pleaseextend my sincere greetings to him, I wish him quick recovery.


I.K. BENNE

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
as I informed you earlier this week,
Mr. R.E.Etkever will get in touch with you next monday,
so please don't make alternative arrangements untill then,



JIDE TIAWO

How are you?, hope you are getting Better.
Do I still wait or Should I make alternative arragement?
Please Advise.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
First of all, I would like to thank your for your concern for my health. I really appreciate your worries regarding my present physical condition. Also, I appreciate your understanding for my precorious situation caused by this unlucky airplane crash. You can certainly understand that this caused many personal and business problems.
Presently, I am allowed for some limited time to do some computer work. However, the medecine told me that my brain concushion may cause some focus and concentration problems especially at the beginning. He told me that it should improve gradually over the next weeks. A more problemtaic problem is the dislocated discus. I have to do special excercises and progress slowly with moving around. So far the medecine told me that I have to remain for at least two more weeks in the hospital and try not to stress mentally and physically.
I am however lucky that Mr. I.K.Benne has taken over most of my business activities until my return. Mr. I.K.Benne is a good friend and he ows me a big deal. Actually he ows me so much that he at sometimes considers it his duty to protect me. That is why he can be extremely suspicious and protective. Mr. I.K.Benne has not made any progres with our deal as far as I could figure out. Maybe it is best in this way. Actually I hope you understand that he has a double workload at the moment and that he is sort of reluctant to deal with projects which are not directly related to our core business. Don't worry about secrecy with regards to Mr. I.K.Benne, he is a good friend and will keep his mouth closed. Eventually he might in the future be of help, but than I'll try to give him appropriate instructions, which because of the airplane crash I was not able to do lately.

Could you please summarize the present status of our project?

Yours sincerely,
Mr. R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

The Bank said they have contacxted you with the Requirement, I could not make futher enquiries,to avoid suspicion.
Please Check if the Letter from the Bank is still with you, If you find it Send it to me to swing into action.

Treat as Urgent.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
sorry for my late reply, but I had to undergo an NMR investigation to check the situation of my discus.
It took the whole day and some streneous treatment and positions.
Anyways, please find below the letter that I got from the First Atlantics Bank.

This mail went to Mrs. Okoro and Mr. Tiawo. The address in Sweden is that of a donkey farm...

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mrs. Okoro,

this is a follow up letter to your message (see below).
The delay in my reply has been caused due to an airplane crash which caused a severe brain concushion as well as a discus problem which kept me immobilised in the hospital until this moment and presently for some not yet defined time. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause in the efficiency of our communications.
Mr. Tiawo advised me to provide my coordinates, although at this very moment I am in the hospital and I cannot be contacted at my private address. The only possibility at present is through my acronymified email address which I am able to use thanks to our tri-satellite detecting remote online connector provided by our company. This communication is more secure and reliable than my private. Since also sending mail to my privates is very in efficient, I wish to inform you that I mention in some earlier communication with Mr. Tiawo that I will try to set up an alternative secure communication via my company's Electronic Post Office system. But, as I mentioned also before, as long as I am in the hospital, I will have difficulties to contact the necessary people involved, so I beg for your understanding patience in this matter.
But as Mr. Tiawo, who is a good and reliable friend of mine, insisted that I provided my coordinates, I give them below:
Ronald Edgar Etkever
@@@@@ 43
123 45 &&&&&
Sweden
Tel:+4612345678
Fax:+46876543 21

Please note that I am presently not at this address because I am in a hospital in Munich (Germany). Please contact me via my email address. Mr. Tiawo will undertake further endeaviours concerning this matter,
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

Good, I will swing into action by monday, I will make all required Memos for the Document over the weekend.
How Long will you be in Germany? I hope you recovering Fast, Its Important that once in a While You call the Bank, that will futher authenticate the Cliam,
I will gyuide you on steps to nFollow. Pleae Note the Need for Absolute Confidentiality. I also Hope that Your Freind is not Privy to all the Information so Far.
Always check your email intermittently for effective communication.
I wish you quick recovery.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
first of all I would like to thank you for your ongoing concern for my health. I already feel some improvement and I am sure your concern has helped in a positive way.
Despite some nasty after effects from the brain concushion I experienced, I tried to focus again on our deal and what has been discussed so far.
I thus remember that I need to do two things, namely set up a bank account for receiving the money and establishing a secure means for communication. For both issues I need to talk privately to the persons that I know, so I beg your understanding if I cannot manage this aspects very fast. These people are very bussy and don't have so much time to come to the hospital and discuss these matters of rather private nature. I would be better if I can go to them under the cover of a business issue and than raise the matter of my privates in a more informal way. In the hospital many people can interfere and also medical doctors may come and get me for specific examinations interrupting my talks.
So I'll have to wait what the doctors say before I can really undertake make practical moves in these directions.
As far as the security is concerned with relation to Mr. I.K.Benne, don't worry, I explicitly told him to keep his mouth closed and as he owes me quite a lot he will be silent as a fish and not telling this story to everybody like a chicken without head. I even think he might be of some help in the future when you have swung into full action, but than I have to brief him more clearly. you certainly realise that I was unable to brief him being transported to the hospital in an unconscious condition.
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

Good to hear of your healthy recovery, Pleae Let me know when you have finished harmonization . I have put a memo to the bank seeking extension on your behalf. Let me know as soon as you are set.
Thanks Once agian.
Jide.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I was about to write you a message to enquire about youor progress. I also have good news! My friend at the Electronic Post Office of our company is going to pay me a visit this weekend to discuss matter regarding renormalising my regular business correspondence. I will take this occasion to discuss the matter of a secured way of communication.
I'll keep you update on progress in this matter,
your sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

I have very good news for you!
My friend at the Electronic Post Office has created a secure way of receiving mail. As I explained to you previously the Electronic Post Office (EPO) system operates completely in a digital way. Regular mail is scanned and automatically relayed to the right person. If a person is not in his office, the system will forward the mail to the place where he presently is thanks to the tri-satellite detecting remote online connector which is activated once our laptop computer is switched on. However, such mail is not secure and may be opened by go-between people such as secretaries, bosses, directors, etc.
I asked my friend if it would be possible to receive mail through our EPO system which is entirely secure. He at first objected that it could interfere with business purposes, but he finally was willing to enable the EPO system to accept such secure mail.
At the end of my mail it will be explained how our secure way of communication needs to be carried out. Don't be scared at first, because it may seem complex. However, once we check good working of this way of communicating, you will see that it is in fact very simple. The most difficult part is that the mail you are sending me should have the correct lay-out and format for the EPO system in order for the EPO computer to recognize that it is secure mail intended for me.
To check the working of this way of communication, I would suggest that you send me a card/photograph with a secret sentence so that you have a double security check (visual and writing). Once I receive your letter, I will email the secret sentence to you as well as tell you what image is on the card or picture and if it is correct we know that this mode of communication works.

Please, I would urge you to read VERY CAREFULLY the instructions below and to carry them out with utmost care for detail! If one single aspect is missing, the EPO system will detect it as a security failure and reject the mail.

looking forward to receiving your test letter,
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever

Details for secure communication:
1) the size of the letter or package should be 29.8 cm long and 21 cm wide. This is actually the German DIN A4 size of a letter. The thickness of the letter/package is not important.
2) put the A4 size in landscape position.
3) On the right side of the A4 area you should draw in black ink a rectangle at 3 cm from the right side and 3 cm from the bottom side. The rectangle should be 10 cm wide and 10 cm long.
4) INSIDE the rectangle in the LEFT UPPER corner you should write the following words in capital letters, style helvetica: PERSONAL - PRIVATE. This is a security matter in case a problem should occur within the EPO system requiring manual handling.
5) INSIDE the rectangle in the right lower corner you should write the following encrypted code in helvetica style:
jmcdonalds
<*D-1234*><*R-1234*>
EPO
D-8**** Mnchen
GERMANY

(For your understanding: <jmcdonalds> is as you already know an encrypted digital code, <*D-1234*><*R-1234*> is a secondary security code which is needed for double checking the existence and validity of the encrypted code, <EPO> obviously stands for Electronic Post Office, and <D-8**** Mnchen> is the postal code for our Electronic Post Office system within Germany. As you may notice, there is no street name involved because of the electronic and digital treatment!)

Now comes the important part where you have to take extreme care! In order to establish 100% secure treatment you should put a special code onto the letter/package. Very exceptionally my friend has provided such a code for our purpose of secure information. This code has been put in a special format so that the EPO system when scanning the letter/package can detect that this specific mail needs special treatment. Therefore in addition to my encrypted name code, my friend has warped the secure code into special multidimensional visual encrypted thrustors. It is of utmost importance that you place those multidimensional visual encrypted thrustors correctly otherwise the code will be warped out and the EPO system will reject the mail. When scanned by the EPO system a tridimensional link will be created thanks to these encrypted thrustors and the warped code will be de-warped by the central processing unit of our EPO mainframe. Upon de-warping the code will be transformed by a Markowski function into a computer generated frame which ensure further secure treatment.

6) Now, the first thrustor containing the first part of the warped code is the following:



This first thrustor should be place in the UPPER LEFT corner of the A4 inlandscape format (frontside, where you wrote the encrypted address). As you will notice upon looking at this thrustor, you will vagely see photonic embedded information flashing back and forth between the different integrated intersections.

7) The second thrustor (below) should be placed in the BOTTOM LEFT corner of the A4 inlandscape format (frontside, where you wrote the encrypted address). Please make sure that both the first and the second thrustor are centered above each other. The second thrustor imparts the linear photonic embedded information flashing back and forth between the integrated intersections of the first thrustor with a frequenced wave like motion. This brings the embedded information into a square warp mode which will allow in the next stage an oscillation into the third dimension, needed for the EPO computer to intiate the final de-warp process.



8) The third thrustor should be placed on the BACKSIDE in the CENTER!!! This is necessary to establish the three dimensional link between the three thrustors. The third thrustor will impart the information with a spiralling motion which is focused in a self-enforcing fashion onto the central disc. As you can see when looking at the thrustor it also contains further moving and delocalised photonic embedded information within the spiraling lines which will enable the computer to access and transgress into the cubic warp mode. Once the photonic embedded information has transgressed from the square warp mode into the cubic warp mode and after condensing in the focal Bose-Einstein condensator point of the central disc of the third thrustor, the computer will be able to launch the de-warping process.

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

I hope you received my message about the secure way of communicating. If you have any furhter question, don't hesitate to let me know.
My next duty in our deal is to set up a secure means for receiving the money. For this I need to get in touch with the person at the bank that I already mentioned to you. However, I need to await the right occasion so as not to raise suspiscions. I will keep you informed about progress in this matter.
As you notice, despite my precarious situation I am trying to focus on our deal for it to be succesfull.
Oh yes, I heard that one of my collegues has to go to Nigeria to solve some problems with a construction project. I don't know yet who is going to be send over there, but I can ask him to check with the bank on my behalf. What do you think?
How is progress going on your side?
Just for fun I ask his advice about a SCAM message in French:

JIDE TIAWO

I'im waiting to receive signal from you that all set out there,
All necessary memos are in place. As of your friend who is coming to Nigeria, its fine, I can meet with him,

The message you sent is not in English,so I could not deduce any information.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mrs. Okoro,

by this I would like to inform you that I insist that every correspondence which is not email, namely letters or packages should be send to me via Mr. Jide Tiawo who has my full confidence in this matter. I made arrangements with him for secure communication and send him the details of this procedure.

Please inform me about the status of further processing of the claim validation,



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
please let me know when you will have sent the letter for testing our secure communication so that I can estimate when more or less your letter should arrive.
I haven't been able to get together with my friend at the bank, but I'll let you know as soon as I manage to arrange a meeting



Mr. Tiawo is getting impatient and wants to start extracting money:

JIDE TIAWO

This transaction is taking time, please try and tidy your side as soon as possible besides. I want you to get well because you need to be fit to handle your side perfectly well. Most importantly, It will cost us some money to process the required documents needed to Authenticate the Claim, I just took an overdraft from my bank to move to a new residence.
Are you disposed to assist financially?
Please Confirm.
Jide.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I certainly understand your feelings, but I could not help it that I ended up in the hospital. However, my health is progressing very positively and I am looking forward to when I will be allowed to leave the hospital.
I realise that at first we'll have to make a small investment to be able to harvest the rich reward. As I mentioned in one of my previous letters, setting up the bank account to receive this large amount of money will be accompagnied with some costs. I think I suggested to split those cost 50/50. Maybe you can borrow some money locally? We 'll have to see how many initial costs are involved and who is going to pay which part.
By the way, did you post the letter for testing our secure communication?



JIDE TIAWO

Sorry the Secure means of Communication is so complex for a man of my Nature who has little Idea on such IT methods. Please I need time to practice that, For new I am very busy.
However considering the requirement needed by the bank to authenticate the Claim, I need money to travel to Abuja to secure Sworn Affidavit of Facts/Support.
More so You need to set-up an Online account with First Atlantic Bank, From My Inquiries Minimum account Opening Requirement is USD2100.
Like I told you I am not financially disposed now, I just took an Overdraft from my Bank to move to a New Apartment.
If you can assist with the account Opening, I will handle all other Documentation and sundry expenses associated with processing the Payment, besides if the account Opening is done from here it will look suspicious, You must Show some elements of reality that you are outside the shores of this Country . This is very important.
Please Confirm your Position on this so that we can Commence this Project, its taking longer than necessary.
I hope you are getting better.
Please Pardon My inability to follow your secure means of communication.
Reply ASAP.
J.Tiawo.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
at the moment it is quiet difficult for me to access my financial possibilities due to being in the hospital. However, I am doing a real effort to reach someone capable of helping me out. Until now, these people have not yet found the time to visit me in the hospital. But, I think by the beginning of next week to be able to fix a meeting to discuss the financial transactional aspects of our deal. In the mean time could you please forward me any necessary details so that I have all information as complete as possible.
It would be helpfull if you send me also copies of those additional documents that you have been able to secure so that I can show my financial contact about the progress we are making in this matter.

Finally, the secure communication is not as complex as you think. I only wanted to give you all the details for your understanding, but apparently I have by doing this rather confused you. For this I would like to apologise. Below, I summarize what you need to do without all the explanations and you will see that it is actually pretty simple. Don't forget to let me know when you mail the letter so that I know when to expect it and that I can follow up the secure procedure,

yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever

Details for secure communication:
1) Take a DIN A4 size of a letter.
2) Draw a 10cm x 10cm black rectangle on the right bottom side. Keep 3 cm from the edges.
3) type INSIDE the rectangle in the LEFT UPPER corner the following words:
PERSONAL - PRIVATE.
4) type INSIDE the rectangle in the RIGHT LOWER corner the following words:
jmcdonalds
<*D-1234*><*R-1234*>
EPO
D-8**** Mnchen
GERMANY

5) print the "picture" below and glue it in the UPPER LEFT corner.
6) print the "picture" below and glue it in the BOTTOM LEFT corner.

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
apparently the message below bounced back. So we might be giving a reply to the contents of the wrong messages. In any case, I am checking with my bank what is possible. Hopefully I'll get the information today or tomorrow morning, so I will send you a message tomorrow morning.
Please confirm you received the summary of how to send a secure letter



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
Oh yes, please send also a secure letter as I explained.
We need to check whether it works or not



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I have several good news for you!
I managed to get in touch with our financial corporate manager, Mr. J. Sezaar, with whom I was already briefly in contact regarding our transaction. I will have a meeting with Mr. J. Sezaar either on friday or at the beginning of next week to discuss the issues of setting up a secure account to receive the large amount of money. At that time he will also be able to give me more details about the costs involved with setting up such an account. If you have more documents available, I would like to ask you to send them to me by email so that I can provide a good basis for the discussions with Mr. Sezaar.
I also contacted my private banc to see what could be done. I might be able to extract some money although I am also in a financial difficult position. Remember that I am planning to marry my fianc Bo Nobo, a project which is a real financial burden. And the airplane accident caused me incredible financial costs. The bank also asked me where the money should be send because there seems to be a limit on the amount of money depending on the country and the procedure. So please send me more details concerning this aspect so that I can see how much money can be transferred eventually. As far as a copy of my identification papers is concerned, I found out that this document got lost in the airplane accident. The document was in my handluggage and this luggage was not transferred with me to the hospital. I tried to figure out what happened to me but as for now I could not get information about its whereabouts. At present unfortunatly I should consider my passport as being lost. For a new passport I'll have to contact the embassy which is in Berlin, quite some distance away from the hospital in Munich. Also my present condition, although progressing favorably, does not allow such a deplacement. Would another picture identification document be OK?
yours sincerely,
Mr. R.E.Etkever

PS: don't forget to let me know when you put the secure letter in the mail.



JIDE TIAWO

Well, so far so good.
However, I have Mr. Williams Death Certificate; I have also sworn an Affidavit of facts /Claim from a High Court. I need to go to the Federal Capital Territory to fill memos for the Letter of Authorization from Federal Ministry of Justice. I will forward the Documents to you to enable you have a detailed harmonization with Mr. J. Sezaar.
Do you trust him,? You know that the transaction needs absolute confidentiality, since Information in wrong hands could be Counter Productive.

Regarding sending your own part of the Initial Cost, You can send the money Via western Union Money transfer.. When you have the Funds Let me know so that I can give you the Cordinates to send it .

Please Do not disclose the entire Information to Mr. J. Sezaar.,unless you Trust him.
Regarding the Secure means ,Sincerely I have not realy tried it,, Pardon me, I will do that before weekend .
Respond as soon as Possible. We need to commence processing these Cliam.
I am counting on you.
No mistakes.
Rgds.
J.Tiawo.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
lookls like we got things moving!

I got confirmation that the meeting with Mr. Jules Sezaar is scheduled for monday morning because he has to fly in to Munich. Don't worry about confidentiality. Mr. Jules Sezaar is a very good friend. Besides that, he had an affair with my secretary Mrs. Cl O'Patra and I helped him to cover it up. So he owes me a big deal because I saved his career! And I will not reveal all the sensitive details to him. On monday I will also know what exact additional costs will be involved with setting up this account.

From the data in my bank account I can make about 1500 USD available to cover costs in the near future in order to enable our procedure. However, I don't understand what you mean by a Western Union Money transfer. Do you have an account in Nigeria? You will certainly understand that for any financial transaction my bank will need some more details. Unless you would like to come to Munich and collect the money in cash.

Please send the secure letter, the procedure is pretty easy. Let me know when you dropped it in the mail so that I can followed up its arrival through our Electronic Post Office system



JIDE TIAWO

Very good, its reassuring to know your ability to handle things out there.
However I have attached Mr. Williams Death Certificate as well as the sworn affidavit which gives us a Legal Backing to process these funds in your Favor.
I need money to commence processing the remainder Docs.
Concerning what you want to send down, Its faster to use Western Union Money transfer, Find out if its in your Country .Its facility used to transfer money, Its quick..
Please Find out so that we move ahead.
Confirm receipt of these Documents.
Note that these are classified Documents.
Rgds.

[Here a couple of mighty fine Lad death certificates and whatnot, from Inkjets R Us. Let's hope they were a lot of work.]


R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
first of all thanks for the additional supporting documents which will be of valuable aid to support the discussion with Mr. Sezaar on monday.

I checked on the internet how this Western Union Money Transfer works. We are not used to this kind of procedure as in Europe everything happens electronically. Unfortunatly, considering my condition I am unable to bring cash to such a Western Union agency. So if possible I would prefer an electronic transfer. However, if you have alternative suggestions, please let me know so that we can work out a secure and efficient procedure for this aspect of our project.

As I don't want any misunderstanding to occur between you and me as good business partners, I also have to clarify to you that the money I can make available is coming from a certain funds which is not really my private account as I don't have so much liquid money available personally. This money is however available from this fund because I am in the controlling board of governors. I discussed it with the bank that I need to use this money temporarily (without giving details) and there is no real problem to withdraw the money. However, the bank will only allow me to make a transfer or payment upon delivery of receipts proving costs. Namely, for the Tax Inspection the bank has to be able to show that every money withdrawal corresponds with costs which should be proven by the original receipts. So, if you can send me the original receipts of your expenses by means of the secure mailing procedure that I set up for our activities, than I can transfer the corresponding amounts to you without too much problems and without too much questions asked.

Before you send me the original receipts however I think it is safer if you first send a test letter to check whether the procedure is really working.

As I will also discuss other business issues with Mr. Jules Sezaar, I will get back to you on tuesday next week,

In case you should be able to obtain any other documents, don't forget to email them to me because they are very important to support my discussion with Mr. Sezaar.



JIDE TIAWO

Its good to know that everything is working well, However I have attached the Receipt of Payments made in respect to this transaction.
Receipt of Affidavit [USD750]
Non Resident Tax Receipt [USD1325]
All these I paid in order to secure the relevant Memos for the Affidavit which gives us a Legal backup to this Claim.
Regarding sending money to me, What I have is a Savings account, I contacted my Neighbor who owns a Watch shop here, So he gave me his account Coordinates in his Country , He said You can send it to him, he will give it to me as soon he receives the money.
So please Do the needy, we are running out of time. Try and conclude with your Friend by tomorrow so that we can move ahead.
Regarding the secure means, I will do so, I really have not brought out time to do it, Please Pardon me.
Please Confirm receipt of these Documents..

R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I am taking a break in my meeting with Mr. Sezaar to reply to your message. Until now we have only discussed company business, but we will come to our case in short time.
I got the copies of the receipts which you mailed to me. Although I got a copy of the "Next Of Kin" document, I could find an attachement reltated to the "Non Resident Tax" document for which you payed 1325 USD? Maybe you can also send this document as soon as possible? Thuis document can be valuable when discussing the tax related issues with Mr. Sezaar. In any case, I will check my mail before I discuss our case with Mr. Sezaar.
Tomorrow morning I will also check with the bank concerning your receipts and hope to give you an update about the transfer.
Thanks for the information so far, it looks like we are getting things done!



JIDE TIAWO

Which document are you requesting ?, did you recieve the Two reciepts?Pls Confirm.
JT



JIDE TIAWO

The Non Resident Tax is mandatory ,ordinarily you are supposed to come down here to process this claim, and there is no way you will do this without paying your Non Resident Tax, besides as a lawyer I do not want to have anything to do with Tax Evasion as its a serious offence here.. Please try and do the needy,
What was the outcome of your discussion with your friend?
Let me know.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
the last two days were packed with interesting developments concerning our case.

1) Payment of Costs
I transferred the copies of your receipts to my bank. However, they were refused because the bank wants the ORIGINAL receipts. Please send me the original receipts by means of our secure communication procedure.

2) Setting up of bank account to receive Mr. Williams deposit
The most important conclusion of my discussions with Mr Sezaar is that in principle there is no problem setting up such an account. However, we have to fulfill certain practical aspects: first, there are certain costs associated with setting up this account and secondly we have to avoid tax and administration inspection.

* COSTS:
The following costs are associated with setting up this account:
- Opening fee: 356 EURO
- Processing of Legal Documents: 224 EURO
- Costs of maintaining the account: 35 EURO/month
- National Tax: 78 EURO/year
- Costs of transfer: in view of the amount to be transferred I negotiated a single fee of 650 EURO to be payed in advance.
This gives us a total of 1230 EURO of inital fees and 498 EURO/year of running costs. We should agree on how much each of us is going to provide in order to enable this crucial aspect of our project.

* LEGAL DOCUMENTS
The legal documents are necessary in order to avoid any tax or administration inspection.
In an earlier talk with Mr. Sezaar he gave me a whole list of documents. But thanks to the documents you provided already I have been able to cut down his requests and he dropped the requirement of certain documents. After much discussion and thanks to the documents which you send me already, I reached an agreement with Mr. Sezaar enabling the opening of the bank account on the basis of the support by means of the following documents:
1) a copy of the document called "Power of Attorney" which shows that you are Mr. Williams lawyer.
2) a copy of the document called "Legacy Statement" from Mr. Williams, a sort of testament in other words. This document should indicate that his deposit should be transferred to the person which is his Next of Kin.
3) a copy of one photoidentification document (pasport, driver licence, etc.) of Mr. Williams

It took a hughe effort from my side to managed to convince Mr Sezaar that a copy of your lawyer diplome and evidence of your seasoning is not really necessary. But you certainly understand that those financial people want to cover their asses as much as possible. I also convinced him that the document "Permitting Licence for Expatriates" would not bring very much. However, although Mr Sezaar agreed on not requesting these documents, I want to stress that any document you have available would facilitate the process of setting up and securing the necessary financial procedures! So don't hesitate to send me as soon as possible any other documents that come into your possession.

Mr Sezaar told me that strangely enough that 56% of the cost could be waived if we can provide some material evidence of Mr. Williams being married. I am sure that since you are Mr. Williams lawyer, the officials conferred some of the possessions of Mr. Williams in to your caretaking. Mr. Sezaar told me that if you would be able to send Mr. Williams wedding ring than at least 56% of the costs could be waived! Luckily I set up our secure means of communication, so it should not be a big problem for you to send me his wedding ring in order to decrease the costs associated with our project. What I actually would like to suggest is that you send me this wedding ring, and I will take the remaining of the costs for my account! I think that is a pretty fair deal!

3) Death Certificate
After all these positive developments for which I used a lot of energy and effort, Mr. Sezaar pointed my attention to the fact that you sent me two different death certificates signed by different medical doctors and giving different reasons for the cause of death (cf. copies below)!? At that point Mr. Sezaar became extremely suspiscious and said that he would refuse any further action untill you could provide detailed clarification! Actually, I did not realize the fact that both documents are different, but Mr. Sezaar certainly has a good point there. Actually, I am also extremely disappointed because all my hughe efforts and energy disappeared into thin air by this! Mr. Tiawo, we have been good business partners and I consider you as a very thrustworthy person. But I have put a lot of effort in this case by already setting up the all the means to enable the money transfer, so I think you owe me a detailed explanation and evidence of your good faith in this matter. Mr. Sezaar will not believe a simple email from you with some arguments, he'll need tangible facts and validated documents/declarations in order to explain the difference between these two documents! So please, no mistakes anymore, now it is up to you to get this project rolling again!!!

Let me summarise what you have to do:
1) Send me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE tangible facts and validated documents/declarations explaining the difference between the two death certificates!
2) Send me a copy of the following documents: "Power of Attorney", "Legacy Statement", photo identification of Mr. Williams
3) Send me by our secure means of communication:
- original receipts of your costs
- Mr. Williams wedding ring

please confirm receipt of this email



JIDE TIAWO

Yes, Ice issue of the Two death certificates ceased Ripples after Mr. Williams Death, The First was Issued by a Student Physician who was on Vacation Job and wads relieving his Boss.
When the Chef Medical officer came back, He relieved the Student Physician of his post on grounds of Incompetence, He then Re-Issued a New one, and also nullified the Previous one So I kept the Documents for records. You would have asked me before presenting it to your Friend, but If he does not feel good about it, I can Go Ahead without him, ,
So at the time you where ion the Hospital; when your Friend was overseeing to events, I was not too sure of his mission due to his curiosity I sent him the Nullified one I was not sure of his mission. You are Free to Confirm from the Hospital.
If you want us to proceeded you must listen to my instruction, I am the Protagonist of this transaction, I live and work here I know how things work.
Please Lets Move ahead. .
JT.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

of course I have no means to check what happened at the hospital and I am certainly not able to assess what happens over there in dark Africa. However, as I told you, Mr. Sezaar will only accept a statement from the Chef Medical Officer which confirms the course of events as you mention in your email.
I just assumed that you sent me the same death certificate, it looked very similar so I did not check the details and you also did not inform me about the nullification of the first Death Certificate. It was only until Mr. Sezaar took a closer look that the differences were discovered.
Actually I got the first Death certificate somwhere in Februari at the very beginning of our project. At that time Mr. I.K.Benne was not involved in our project.
I assume that when you send me a statement from the Chef Medical Officer, Mr. Sezaar would not have further problems to finalize the setting up of the bank account.
So please send me the validated statement from the Chef Medical Officer as soon as possible!
I am eager to unlock this unfortunate situation so that we can carry out our project in due time.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I just got a message from the bank that the limit for reimbursement of costs on the basis of receipts is 3700 EURO /month. So, I would like to ask you to be carefull when sending receipts. Please do not exceed this amount of 3700 EURO / month. Also the bank stressed that a reimbursement can only be carried out on the basis of original receipts.
So please use our secure means of communication to send me the original receipts.



JIDE TIAWO

I will see the Doctor by the end of the week
I cannot send originals of reciept now becuase need the receipt here vote File for the Certificate Proper which I intend to do by tomorrow, if you cannot instruct your bank to send money to where ever you wish then, I doubt if you have control over things there.
I am beginning to doubt your ability since there is always a third party involved irrespective of the Confidentiality needed in this Project.
I can swear a Counter affidavit if you are wafting tome, this transaction is taking longer than necessary; I am the Protagonist so I cannot afford to make costly mistakes.
I bam getting worried.
JT.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
sorry for my late reply, but I had to undergo an NMR investigation of my discus to see how the evolution looks like.

Don't be worried, taking into account my health problems, it looks like we are making good progress. Please note thet it is not so easy to arrange all these matters from the hospital.

As you are going to see the Chef Medical Doctor, I expect that when you send me his validated statement it will be possible to finalise setting up the account. I have the impression that with the validated statement from the Chef Medical Doctor everything looks fine.

As far as the money for reimbursement of costs is concerned. Please note that this money is not my own, because of my wedding and because of my hospital costs I do not have so much cash money available. Therefore, I am using the funds of an organisation where I am in the board of governing directors. The good thing about this fund is that I can submit to the treasurer receipts for an amount upto 3700 EURO per month without any questions asked! The only thing is that the receipts must be the original ones. So computer print-outs are not accepted. That is why you should send me the original receipts by our secure means of communication.

Please remember that these days in Europe there are a lot of anti-fraude control mechanisms in effect and that one has to be carefull not to wake up sleeping dogs. We therefore need for certain aspects documents which can be used to put a smoke screen to avert eventual investigations.

As we have not yet tested our secure means of communication, normally you should first send a test letter. However, if you want to speed up things, you can always send the items right away without any test letter. Normally if you follow my instructions carefully everything should work out properly.
Please, let me know when you mail the secure letter so that I can follow up the procedure.

yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
While awaiting to receive the validated statementof the Chef Medical Doctor, we can already think about the remaining issues to finalise the procedure. In this way we can speed up things and not lose too much time.

As mentioned in one of my previous messages, we need for putting up a smoke screen for averting eventual tax and financial investigations the following documents:
- "Power of Attorney"
- "Legacy Statement"
- identification of Mr. Williams
I think you mentioned to me before that you have these documents in your possession. For reasons of efficiency I would kindly like to ask to already mail these documents by email so that I have everything ready for finalising setting up the account with Mr. Sezaar.

I also mentioned that there are some costs associated with setting up the account. But Mr. Sezaar would wave 56% of the if we could provide evidence of Mr. Williams being married. Upon asking what kind of evidence Mr. Sezaar would deem necessary, he told me that any evidence would be fine. Even a wedding ring...
My suggestion is that you send me Mr. Williams wedding ring and I would take care of the remaining 44% of the costs of setting up the account (namely 1230 EURO of inital fees and 498 EURO/year of running costs).
For efficiency you could include the ring together with the original receipts in the secure letter.

I have the confident feeling that we are getting everything set up to carry out the deal!



JIDE TIAWO

I t went to see The CMO of St Marys Hospital, He said I should I should put up as Formal request for the Confirmation from him, I did not tell him I still have the other Death Certificate Issued by his Student Doctor.
I will see him on Tuesday since I have Court Brief Tomorrow.
Sincerely your Procedure about concluding this transaction is becoming hectic and I am contemplating making alternative arrangement, . I will submit original receipts in Court tomorrow to enable them issue a Memo for processing the Certificates. You have to talk to your Bank, if they are not sending money then, I am fed up with your Long Procedures.
I am talking to some Lebanese Business men here who have very Vast Contacts in terms of receiving huge amounts.
I await to hear from you before I seal the deal with them although there commission is high but its faster and easier than your which is taking almost Four Moths without any tangible result from your end,
How can you ask me to provide Mar Williams wedding Ring,? what sort of request is that?
I am getting fed up with your arrangement.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

please take into account that have been suffering sever health problems otherwise I would have been able to handle things in a much more convenient manner.
I was in contact with the treasurer of the organisation who is providing the money for covering the costs.
He confirmed to me that he has set aside the amount corresponding with your receipts.
He is only awaiting to receive your original receipts before he can transfer the money.
After all the effort in getting things ready over here, I would be very disappointed if you would drop this deal because of a some minor administrative issues.
Anyway let us get this project done fast and efficiently!



JIDE TIAWO

I met with the Doctor Today he said he has a Surgery that he will prepare the Letter and keep for me to pick tomorrow.
Now concerning the original receipts, the receipts are needed to process the Certificate, which will be needed for sighting by the bank.
If you cannot send money without Originals then we have a Problem, why dont you collect the money and send it Via Western Union which is Faster and more secure.
You should not misconceive me , Put yourself in my shoes, I have wasted enough time in this Project which ordinarily wouldnt have taken I month to conclude..
Try and make things happen on your side I am doing my best here.
Please Reply Immediately..
We need to do the Needy.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I am awaiting the letter fromn the Chef Medical Doctor so that I can harmonize my agreement with Mr. Jules Sezaar. Please send it as soon as possible, because Mr. Sezaar informed me that in the coming days he has to go on a business visit to Belgium. One of our clients, namely the company A.M. Biorix is causing some trouble and Mr. Sezaar urgently needs to take some immediate remediating action.

Considering my position, I am doing my utmost best to enable the positive outcome of our project! I can already see the bright light at the end of the tunnel. There are only some minor administrative formalities that need to be fullfilled in order to allow the transfer of money as well from Nigeria to my account as from my account to you.

I have to admit however that I am at present a little bit confused.
I have managed that our treasurer has set aside the amount of 3700 EURO for reimbursement of your costs.
The only thing he needs in return are the original receipts of your costs. With original receipts there are no questions asked upto the amount of 3700 EURO/month.
In a previous mail you mention that fees needed to be paid for the following documents:
- "Sworn affidavit of Facts/ Support from a High Court of justice"
- "Letter of Authority from Federal Ministry of justice"
Additionally you mentioned costs related to Stamp Duty, Docket fees, Hotel accommodation, transport and other sundry expenses.
The receipts that you emailed to me related to a "Receipt of Affidavit" [USD750] and a "Non Resident Tax Receipt" [USD1325].

This is were I become a little confused: If the receipt of affidavit is for obtaining the document "Sworn affidavit of Facts/ Support from a High Court of justice", than you don't really need the original receipt for processing as it is the document by itself that should enable the processing. If the receipt of affidavit is for another document, than you still have to obtain the "Sworn affidavit of Facts/ Support from a High Court of justice". Also in the latter case, I understand that it is rather the document that would be enabling processing rather than the receipts? Furthermore, I can read on the "Non Resident Tax Receipt" that a copy has been send to First Atlantics bank. So, the bank already has an original copy of this receipt.
Also, I don't understand to what extent you need to show the original receipts for Stamp Duty, Docket fees, Hotel accommodation, transport and other sundry expenses? You should be able to send these receipts without jeopardizing the processing of the claim. Finally you have not yet send a receipt for the document "Letter of Authority from Federal Ministry of justice". Also in this case, I understand that it is rather the document that would be enabling processing rather than the receipts?

So far I don't understand why you cannot send the original receipts? I would say that that is quiet a small effort for receiving reimbursment of costs upto 3700 EURO /month!

But first things first: the validated statement from the Chef Medical Doctor is the most important need at the moment. Please send it to me as soon as you have received it from the Chef Medical Doctor.



JIDE TIAWO

I lost a Relative of Mine, I will be traveling today for the burial I will be back on Thursday, I will send to you the Documents.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,

I feel very sorry for you loosing one of your relatives. Please convey my condolence. I hope you are not too much distressed by this unfortunate event. Please don't let this put you down in your daily life, although I understand that it will be difficult to keep fully concentrated and focussed. My thoughts are with you and your relative.
Looking forward to receive your message with the documents on thursday,
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

I got back this morning, I will get back to you as soon I am through with Family problem.


R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr.Tiawo,
I hope all is well with your family,
awaiting your answer,
Yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I hope you have been able to sort out your family problem?
I am looking forward to receive the statement from the Chef Medical Doctor so that we can finish all administrative aspects of our transaction.



JIDE TIAWO

I tried sending the Original Reciepts thru the Secure means of Communication, Did you recieve it.

I will go to the Doctor tomorrow, It rained cat and dogs here today so movement was inhibited. I will forward it tomorrow.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
maybe it is a little early for the receipts to have arrived.
However, now that you informed me, I'll keep an eye on our Electronic Post Office to monitor the whereabouts of the secure letter. I am also glad you informed me that you have sent the original receipts because our treasurer was asking how long he needs to keep the money aside. Now I can inform him that it is not going to last much longer!
I'll get in touch with Mr. Sezaar to set up a meeting to finish the formal issues. He should be back from his tour in Belgium.
I heard that he harrassed A.M.Biorix so much that these people won't make too many wrong moves again!
Please be carefull with all those cats and dogs around.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I would like to set up a meeting with Mr. Sezaar tomorrow to finish my side of the project. Do you think you can manage to get the statement from the Chef Medical Doctor? Otherwise I should arrange the meeting with Mr. Sezaar for a later date.
The problem is that Mr. Sezaar is a very bussy person and that he needs to squeeze our project in between his official duties.

It would be nice if you could let me know the exact date on which you mailed the secure letter, so that I can see when it reaches the European continent.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I haven't heard from you for some time. How are things going? I am waiting for you to finalise our project.



JIDE TIAWO

Did you receive the Receipts,?
We should move ahead now, I am back to Base.
Reply ASAP.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
thanks you for your message! I already started worrying that something happened to you! I hope that you are doing alright?
Until now I have been watching out for your letter to arrive, however until this moment I have not yet received it.
Maybe it could be that the postal traffic between Europe and Nigeria is a little slow. But, I will run another enquiry to see if your letter entered our Electronic Post Office.
yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

This is to inform you that I have Changed My Email Address . Please Confirm reciept so that we can commence our Project, Sorry For the Delay.
J.Tiawo.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I am happy to hear from you! Unfortunatly I have not received your letter so far. There could be several reasons:
Maybe something went wrong between Nigeria and Europe.
Maybe it is possible that the secure communication has been disabled because there was a longer period of inactivity between the moment when it was enabled and the moment you effectively sent your first letter. I suggest that we check the normal communication to see if a problem occured there.
Namely, by sending a simple postcard with the following basic information:
jmcdonalds
<*D-1234*><*R-1234*>
EPO
D-8**** Mnchen
GERMANY

the mean time I'll check with our EPO Administrator whether there are problems with the secure communication.



JIDE TIAWO

As it now I need some money to facilitate the Process here, I asked you to assist me Financially no matter how small, I took an overdraft from my bank to move to a New Apartment, So I do not have the leverage to Process this transaction Father since I need to get the relevant Memos from the Court, all this needs money and Kickbacks which you must give to the Officers else they will abandon tour File.
Try and assist me you have a stake in this.
Please let me know If you can so that we conclude this as soon as Possible.
I await your immediate response.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

JIDE TIAWO

Thanks for your reassurance,

This Project is taking time, and If the Bank does not hear from us, they might cancel the Approval, that will effect my Reputation. Lets facilitate this project.
Let me know if you can send the money to me.
I await your immediate response.
JT.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I appreciate your continuous efforts in keeping the ball rolling and I want to assure you of my full support.
I agree that we have to do everything possible to maintain the approval and avoid the bank from cancelling the claim.
I am also really concerned about how this may affect your reputation which is indisputable.
The steaks are enormous and we have to avoid any negative side effects.
Let us harmonise our actions so as to enable positive digestion,
looking forward for your immediate response.



JIDE TIAWO

Please I need this money, It will assist me.
Please see this as your own sacrifice to our success.
If you can let me know so that I can give you details on how to effect the transfer.

Pease do it today so that I can move on Monday.
Ultimately I want us to conclude by end of the Month.
I await your immediate action.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo, I found one of these Western Union offices. However, when they saw that the recipient is located in Nigeria, Western Union officials requested me to provide an official transcript of full identification details as well as photographic identification and an original stamped reference letter from an official Nigerian administrator confirming the trustworthiness of this person. It seems that Western union has had some complaints about irregularities with sending money to Nigeria. As your reputation is indisputable, I am sure you will be able to send these matters without delay.

Please use the following address details to send me the requested documents:
jmcdonalds
<*D-1234*><*R-1234*>
EPO
D-8**** Mnchen
GERMANY

The possibility exists that mail send to this address may be opened, in order to reduce this risk, please write in BIG letters: PERSONAL - PRIVATE.
I will get in touch as soon as I receive your mail.
The sooner we can process this matter the better.
The steaks are big and we need to organise for proper digestion,

yours sincerely,
R.E.Etkever



JIDE TIAWO

Sorry for my later response I traveled out of base on family Matters.
Does that mean you can not instruct Western Union to send money to your associates here?
This is ridiculous.
If you are not ready to assist me, let me know I am getting fed up over these developments.
I do not have a domiciliary account, I will look for someone that has, I will talk to him by tomorrow.
We are wasting time,.
JT
And Mr. Tiawo tries to send a photo ID of his assitant!!! Unfortunatly he sends his own ID, which now looks different from the one he sent before...


JIDE TIAWO

find attached ID,
Effect the Transfer to enable proceed.
JT





As I did not answer his mail, Mr. Tiawo is getting worried:

JIDE TIAWO

What is going on?
Let me know we are wassting time .
JT



JIDE TIAWO

What is going on? If you are ready to work with you better setup wasting my time, I am a serious minded person.
I cannot reconcile your refusal and/or inability to respond to my letters.
Pls advice o enable take necessary action.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I am realy getting tired of your insolent attitude.
First, not so long ago I did a tremendous effort to make all the practical arrangements. But when it came to taking care of the last simple things, you failed miserably (eg. the letter of the chef medical doctor). If we want to continue, I'll have to renew all the arrangements I made and I'll have to convince my people that this is not a joke!
Than, I took care of your financial support for an amount of 3700 Euro/month. And again, when I simply asked for the original receipts to be send to me, I did not hear whatsoever from your side and I never received any letter with receipts...
When you are not capable of doing the most essential things, than I am seriously wondering why I would be waisting MY time and money with an simple minded individual like you.
And don't tell me these are exceptions and accidental mistakes... Again in your latest mails you ask me to send the money to a certain Mr. JOHN. U,OKEZE, but when I ask for an identification to show to the Western Union people you send me your own identification?! So... simple minded or not simple minded, that is the question I am asking myself?
In the beginning I thought you were a serious and professional barrister, but more and more I have the impression that you are not capable of dealing with such serious matters.
Anyways, if you are not doing your job more tediously, I am thinking about contacting one of our own company's lawyers in Nigeria to finalise this matters and collect the money.
Let me know your position and I hope you are prepared to continue the procedure in an appropriate manner without further stupid mistakes.



JIDE TIAWO

You have failed to understand the nature and dimension of this transaction. What you must know is that those that live in a glasshouse dont throw stones This transaction requires absolute confidentiality, but overtime you have not maintained the required Confidentiality needed.
You are always asking for documents that will take us back. At first you where asking for Mr. Williams Wedding Ring what sort of request is that? You are not the bank that will verify the Authenticity of the documents regarding the Demise of Mr. Williams. I am doing this transaction with you and not with group pf persons.

Secondly you do not take the required measures needed, I asked you to assist me financially, You where asking for Originals of receipts, I send them the way you advised uphill now you are saying you never received it, How can I send you an original stamped reference letter from an official Nigerian administrator confirming the trustworthiness of this person you are sending money to.? Just because you want to send money to me, how much are you sending that will require such stringent procedure?
Your Approach to the transaction is really creating cogs in the Wheel of success .Its over Four months since I solicited your assistance, uphill now you have not done anything tangible instead you tend to take me back.
Please do have a rethink, do not contact any other person for the purpose of this Business, I am the protagonist of this transaction, You Must Follow my Instructions else we make very costly mistakes. I am a serious minded person but I take things easy, I can crawl like a snail nut I must get to my destination safe.
If you want to assist, there are Better approaches.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
what annoys me quite intensively is your lack of understanding for my predicaments over here. I can only make my moves within the fullfilment of basic adminstrative requirements. Lately we were progressing very satisfactory. I made tremendeous progress in setting up everything over here to receive the money as well as providing you with substantial funding up to 3700 EURO/month to enable to finalize the project.
However, when it came to the final finishing touch you failed to support me in my efforts.

Now, let us stop jipjapping like little children and deal with this like real grown-up adults. You have your issues to tackle and I have my hurdles to take. So let us have some mutual understanding and support each other in order to get this thing sorted out. We both want to keep crawling around in the glasshouse, won't we?

I am very much willing to believe that you send me the original receipts by mail. However, I never received anything. So something must have gone wrong with the postal service. As I suggested earlier, it would have been better to send a test letter. However, at the present stage of matters, I suggest that in order to check what has gone wrong, you should send me a simple postcard with just the address which I will give you again below. The card will than follow the insecure postal procedure. You can just write any simple greeting message. This will allow me to check whether the mailing problem is due to the address or due to the secure procedure. I can imagine that something went wrong with the secure mailing procedure as I assume it must be quite complex to send such letters from a country like Nigeria which is located in the middle of dark Africa.
So please, I would urge you to send a simple post card from your area with a greeting message to:

jmcdonalds
<*D-1234*><*R-1234*>
EPO
D-8**** Mnchen
GERMANY

I am hoping that we now have more mutual understanding for each others predicaments and that we will support each other in our efforts to get this project going again.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
please let me know how things are going.



JIDE TIAWO

My Problem is money to facilitate the processing of the required documents.
I wonder why you cannot send money. Unless I send receipts which I have done and you said you never got it, Nigerian Postal Service is not secure.
Now does that mean there is no way you can assist me financially.
I dont want to get to the Federal Capital and get stranded.
I strongly believe that you can find a means to send the money, or should I get a bank account from a Company? can you effect the payment through a Companies account?
Confirm
JT



JIDE TIAWO

To send the Money Should I forward ID of Mr John Okeze.?
Please Confirm.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I understand your predicaments. And I can assist you financially.
Namely, there is a possibility to transfer 3700 Euro from an organisation over here. The only thing they ask is a simple receipt. But it has to be the original one, not one mailed by email.
However, if I understood correctly there seems to be a problem mailing letters from Nigeria. So if you want me to transfer this money, we will first have to solve the problem of mailing letters to Germany because without original receipt they will not release the money.
Now in order to check whether something is wrong with the mailing address, you should send me a simple letter or postcard.
Please don't write confidential information because any letter with just this address will be checked. This will just be a check to see whether mail arrives from Nigeria.
Later we can include the secure features.
The progress of our project is in your hands. As soon as we have worked out the problem of mailing, the transfer of money (3700 Euro) can begin.



JIDE TIAWO

Where do I get the receipts, I SENT IT AS YOU INSTRUCTED ME, and you did not receive it, I cannot produce another Reciept.
If you are entitled the money every month, They should give it to you without any receipt, Now assuming you are not doing this Business with me, So you wont be entitled to your monthly Impress? Lets be reasonable, you should facilitate this Project, I wonder why you did not receive the Letter.
Please Do the Needy.
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I understand that you sent the receipts to me. Either we just have to be patient for the receipts to arrive. Or something went wrong and thus we need to find out where the problem is. So you see it would have been usefull to check the procedure first and than send the original receipts. It would save us time and embarassement if you would follow my instructions more correctly. Please send the letter/post card to see if the postal service works at all.

As far as the money is concerned. As I explained before, I don't have this money. This money is on the account of an organisation who can release 3700 Euro/month on the basis of receipts submitted by a member. No questions asked. However, if I don't present a receipt they will not give the money to me but to another member that is able to present a receipt. It just matters who is first to present a receipt. So I need receipts to get the money from this organisation.

But let us first figure out what happened to the letter. Please send me a simple letter/postcard to check whether it will arrive from Nigeria. Than we can check the rest of the procedure.



R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I haven't heard from you for some time.
Please let me know how things are progressing because you are the key player.

I am happy to tell you that I will be in Nigeria from 12.07.2004 to 14.07.2004. This will be a unique chance to meet. The airport where I will arrive is Maiduguri airport. If you want we can meet there to discuss our project and see what we can do to the benefit of both of us.
Eventually, if I can give me receipts, I can give you the corresponding amount in money and I can than get it reimbursed from my company.
Let me know what you think.



JIDE TIAWO

Very good, .We will surely meet.
Thanks.
Jide



JIDE TIAWO

Let me have your Flight Schedule to enable progamme my work.
Looking forward to meeting you soon.
J.Tiawo.



JIDE TIAWO

Are you still coming? Please Confirm
JT



R.E. ETKEVER

yes


R.E. ETKEVER

Dear Mr. Tiawo,
I'll be arriving on the 12.07 with the company airplane, so there is no commercial schedule. The time of arrival depends on to what extent our business progresses at the destination before Nigeria. We don't expect much trouble so the arrival is set on 12.07



JIDE TIAWO

Call me today; I need to speak with you before our Meeting in Maiduguri.
234-1-8949545.
JT


Here I basically dropped our exchange. I did not reply and he did not get back to me. I guess he sort of figured out that he was not going to get any money from me...
