YABBA DABBA DOO!

Updated april 20 2007

Dear Scamoramans, some time after this was originally posted, someone claiming to represent one of the banks mentioned herein contacted Scamorama's ISP, demanding that the name of the bank be removed, demanding an apology, and claiming that the bank's reputation had been damaged. We had never heard of the bank outside of this scambait, and what little we could dig up on it sounded dicey.

It seemed like some poor shnook was stuck with the job of monitoring every mention of his bank, and then sending out boilerplate threats. Still, we thought, why not make him happy.

If you have nothing better to do, you can read his demands
here. Unpleasant, and inaccurate - the scambait below simply repeats the scammer's claim that he is banking at said bank. Apparently the bank shnook couldn't be bothered to read this page, but we thought, why not help him out. So, we added a disclaimer. End of story, so it seemed.

But he's back in April 2007 with the same demands. We were going to ignore him, but saw minor potential for comedy. So, the name of the bank has been changed to Some Bank in the Iddle Meast, or SBIM.

This is in no way the apology 'SBIM' was asking for. If they had good p.r. instincts they would be sponsoring Scamorama and handing out copies of the Scamorama book with each new account opened.

So far there have been no complaints from the numerous other banks these scammers claim to work for, or bank in. The Bank of Cobblestone Creek, where Fred does business, is also strangely silent.

I don't believe I know you, nor do I know what this concerns. Apparently, you have mistaken me for someone else. Please recheck your information.

Barrister Fred Williams

Dear frederick,

Thanks for your response, i'mnot mistaking i'm contacting you to help me get my late client money from the bank, I'm barrister Fred a personal attorney to Mr. RichardFelt who used to work with Dan tax Petroleum Nigeria Limited.

On the 4th of May 2003, my client, his wife and their three children were involved a fatal plane crash in jos. All passengers on board including my late client, his wife and three children lost their lives.

Since then I have made several enquires to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has proved rather unsuccessful. I have therefore contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confisticated or declared unserviceable by the bank in which his fund were deposited since both of you are foreigners.

Particularly, the Bank where the deceased operated an account valued to the tune of (11.4million US dollars) has issued me a notice to provide the next of Kin or have the account revoked within the next 14 official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for close to 2 years now.

I solicit your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of his account can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money to a ratio of 6:3,meaning I take 60% and you'll get 30% 10% will map out for expenses.

I have all the necessary legal document that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

I will you to forward your private telephone and fax no for easy communication, as soon as you do this, i shall forward start processingdocuments in your name and i shall also forward a text of application which you forward to the bank as the next of kin to Mr. Felt. Once again i thank you.

Barr. Fred .(esq)



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,
I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your client. I'm really not familiar with a plane crash, but I'm sure it must be bad.
I have read your email several times and discussed the matter with my wife Wilma, who is always suspiscious of most of my hairbrained schemes. What do you need us to do? I know you asked for phone number and fax, but we live in the small town of Bedrock, which is quite primitive by todays standards. Most homes here have no private phones yet, so for the present, I'm limited to emails. You say that I'm to present myself as the next of kin. Is this legal? I wouldn't want to get involved in any shady deals.
Also, I'm having a hard time understanding why a bank would want to revoke an account with 11.4 million dollars in it. Wouldn't they just rather leave the money there?
And one more thing....how did you get my name? Like I said, this is a primitive community and we don't travel or get out too much.
I'm sorry for so many questions, but Wilma wanted me to ask them so we can be sure we're not going to get into something illegal.
Thanks.
Frederick J. Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Frederick,

I thank you for yourresponse and is good to ask questions in situations like this, this is not illegal, this is 100% risk free i promise, the bank of my late client have given me a notices to provide the next of kin to Mr.Richard, this why i'm in need of you sir, I have all the legal back up to this fund, all i need is your maximum coperationin this transaction, don't be affraid of any legal deal, Is not, I need to present you to the bank of my late client as the next of kin to mr. richard felt.

Fred Flintstone

Good day, Mr. Barrister Fred,

It is at this time I must make a confession. Due to extenuating circumstances, I was not able to attend school when I was young, so due to my lack of knowledge concerning monetary matters, all my business transactions are usually handled by my wife Wilma. However, Wilma is out of town for a few days to visit her mother. Mrs. Slaghoople has been a little sick lately and needs a little help.
However, I can probably get my bosses secratary, Ms. LaRock, to help me with this form tommorow. Give me a couple of days to get this together.
However again, I must ask you....why would a bank want to just revoke an account that contains 11.4 million dollars? It seems to me that they would do anything to keep it there.
Anyhow, I'll contact you when Ms. LaRock goes over this for me.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

Ireally understands all you said,but i want you to know that we don't much time on this transation, pls hurry up and get this fill THIS FORM before today runs out.

Regards,
Barrister, Fred.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

I had Ms. LaRock go over the form today. Unfortunatley, we have a problem. She says I have to have a bank account. Since I'm practically living in the stone age, I don't have a private bank account, only a small joint account with my wife Wilma at the South Bank of Cobblestone Creek that only contains just a few pebbles.
However, I would like to see if we could use another account. You see, I work at the Bedrock Quarry and my boss, Mr. Slate, overheard my conversation with Ms. LaRock, so he has graciously offered to use his company bank account to transfer the money into, if this is permissible and legal...is it? If so, let me know and we'll get it ASAP. Also, do we just fill out the form and email it to the bank you requested?
Thanks.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

Thanks very much for your mail. Yes, presenting account to the bank is very vital, that is where the money will be transferred into as soon as the process is completed. Involving your boss is a very good thing provided he will not be greedy at the end of the transaction. Do not be scared I have every thing at my disposal being his personal attorney. Know you should know that your wife, your boss and the secretary in the office has known about this transaction please I will advice you to tell them not to disclose it to any other person until we actualize this.

Most importantly, you are going to act perfectly as the next of kin to the deceased. All I have to do is to feed you with any document they bank will require from you to authenticate your claim. File the application and send to the bank as soon as they respond you let me know I will advice you on what to do. If you can cooperate with me I promise you we will conclude this transaction less than 14 working days.

Thanks and I will wait for your response immediately.

Barr. Fred Esq.

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister
Fred,

Be sure to ask for me, Fred Flintstone, and if I'm out in the field operating mydino-crane, just ask for my boss, Mr. Slate, since he knows the details of this. If Ms. LaRock is there, you can talk to her too. My wife Wilma will be returning home tomorrow, andshes almost excited as I am....And I wont say a word to anyone else.
Yabba dabba
Doo!!!!!!

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



(The phone number I gave him is to the Warner Brothers Studios, who own the rights to the Flintstones cartoons.)


Barrister Fred Williams

Thanks and let me know as soon as the bank respond.
Regards,
Barr. Fred



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister,

My wife Wilma returned home today and immediatley reviewed our progress so far. She said that Ms. LaRock might have filled that form out incorrectly and said that this whole thing sounds like another hairbrained scheme to her. Could you please set her straight on this and let her know that you have things well in control? And please make sure that form is filled out correctly, I should have finished school so I would know how to do these things! Why, with my knowledge, I'm practically a cave man! If its not right, by all means, let us know ASAP so Wilma can get it taken care of! Oh, and by the way, Wilmas mother, Mrs. Slaghoople, is fine...she just ate a bad brontosaurus burger and had some stomach problems.
Please let Wilma know this is a legitimate deal....Thank you.
Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone

GENERAL SECRETARY
AFRICAN BANK PLC


(Attached was a copy of the form I had sent them...)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred...

I recieved this email from your bank. Should I reply to them that I am a cave man and have filled out the info incorrectly? Or will you be able to handle this? Please let me know, I would hate to miss out on all this money because of my ignorance. Also, my wife Wilma would like to see some sort of ID from you, to prove you are really who you say you are. She's not as trusting as I am, but I'm just a good natured guy. Let me know ASAP if I need to re-submit the form to your bank. Thank you, and yabadabba doo.
sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

I just got your mail, please go through with the application with your wife and resend it to the bank before the close the meeting tomorrow. Please tell them that you are not good at English language that your wife wasnt around when you sent the application. Let your wife go through it properly and fill it correctly and send to the bank before the close theyre meeting tomorrow. Please do this now let them not deny us this because of your poor understanding of English. Do this now there are lots of arrows in that application, please correct it now and send to the bank okay.

I did not scan my international passport again and send to you, please I will do it tomorrow my scanner is bad. Tell your wife that she should not doubt this transaction, I am not the first person to

handle a transaction like this. One of my friends lost his client some time ago this is exactly how he transferred the money to foreign account. He is now residing in London because he worked it out with a foreigner from London. My own will not be exemption all you people over there will promise me is sincerity and cooperation. If you promise me this, the fund will be in your account before next week runs. Let the bank grant this money to you then we will know the next step okay.

Please resend the application to the bank, it is still there in your box.
Thanks,
Barr. Fred Esq.

As far as calling the number, we are quite primitive here in Bedrock, so the few phones we do have work as well as prehistoric birds connected by string! If you continue to get no answer, let me know and I can give you another number to try.
Thanks, and Yabba Dabba Do.

Sincerely
Fred Flintstone.



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

I got your mail this morning, I could not reply immediately because I want to send the documents requested from the bank at the same time. I have all this documents with me and I will forward them to you right away so that you send them to the bank as reqested for the transfer to commence. The only document that is not with me is sworn affidavit, which I will leave to Abuja any moment from now to get it. I will go to Abuja this evening with the last flight of today so that by tomorrow morning I will go to federal high court and get the affidavit on your behalf. I will send it from Abuja so that you will have time to send it to the bank immediately.

I am very happy the way you people are cooperating in this transaction, I promise you by this time next week this fund will be in your account. You will get an attachment of the deposit certificate and the death certificate of late Richard Felt right now. You will have to forward these two documents to the bank right away and tell them that you will send the sworn affidavit to them as soon as you get it from your attorney in Nigeria by tomorrwo.

I will get back to you with the documents, please let me have another phone number so that I will talk to you on phone.

I wish you good luck,

Regards,
Barr. Fred Esq.


(The Barrister then sent these documents to me................)


One death certificate coming right up:



And in a fine display of inkjetsmanship, a certificate of deposit:




Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

I have sent to you the two documents I promised you the death certificate and the certificate of deposit. All you have to do now is to forward them to the bank like that they will not see our communication okay. As soon as I am through with the sworn affidavit I will send it to you meanwhile send the once I have sent to you to the bank and tell them that you will send the sworn affidavit as soon as you get it from your attorney in Nigeria.

Please let this transaction be confidential.

Thanks,
Barr. Fred Esq.


(He then sent the sworn affidavit.................)





Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

Thanks very much and God bless all of you that is making it possible for us to get this fund.

Extend my greetings to your wife.

Thanks
Barr. Fred Esq.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

I have forwarded all items to the bank as you asked. However, my best friend Barney Rubble noticed that the death certificate says that Mr. Felt died in an auto crash....I thought you said he died in a plane crash....it would be terrible if the info I sent the bank was incorrect! Which is it?? I don't want to lose all this money now, we are planning a big trip to Rock Vegas! Please check into this, yabba dabba doo?

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


(uh oh, he's kinda ticked off that I got Barney involved............)


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

The real is the one on the death certificate maybe my secretary made a mistake in the first contact. Every thing is in progress, let us wait to see the respond from the bank. But my good friend I have begged you not to disclose this to any other person, who is Mr. Barney Rubble? Please do not let us loose this money out of our own carelessness.

Why do you involve another person to extend of showing him the documents involve please I wouldnt want a thing like that again. Why I said you should not disclose this to people i dont want to loose this money you know people can be greedy.

Please get back to me as soon as the bank responds to you okay.

Thanks and God bless you.
Fred Esq.


(At this time, I was contacted by another scammer with a $3 million deal. I didn't have the time to keep two of these at the same time, but I figured I would let the Barrister know about it.)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

I'm glad that things are going well, Yabba Dabba Doo, but I thought I had told you about Barney...he's not only my next door neighbor, but he's also my best friend. We share everything together.You do not need to worry about Barney, he is also a cave man like me and is well trusted! I'm going to split the money with him. His wifes name is Betty, and they have a small son named Bam Bam...strong as an ox, too!
But let me tell you of my good fortune!! You, sir, must be good luck, because I have been contacted by someone else of Nigerian extract to help invest 3 million dollars!! Can you believe this??? First you, and now this!!! Perhaps I should go ahead and open my own private bank account to hold all this money!!! And just think, Wilma thought this was a just another hairbrained scheme!
Well, anyway, let me know what to do next....and Yabba Dabba Doo.
Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone -



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Sir,

Please I would advice you wait for any other business until we finalize this one at hand. I am not saying you should not welcome investors but make sure the person is for real. Because most bank managers here use that way to extract money to foreign countries but our government is against that. Let me have what the person sent to you and investigate. Do not reply to it the email until I get back to you. Meanwhile let me know as soon as you hear from the bank okay. How is your wife and the rest of the family? Okay now I know what Mr. Barnney is to you but please tell him to be confidential okay.

Thanks,
Barr. Fred Esq.


(I'm really getting tired of him calling me "sir" instead of Fred........)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.

I will take your advice on other business deals from now on, as Wilma figured out right away the other one had somehow found out about this deal and was going to try to scam us!! Its a good thing Wilma was too smart for them!!!

Also, you keep referring to me as "sir"....please, you may call me Fred, as we are practically business partners now. Wilma is fine, as is our 3 year old daughter Pebbles, thank you for asking. I will not take any further action until I hear from you. We plan on going to the drive-in tonight for some reptar-ribs, I hope I don't eat too many!! Yabba Dabba Doo!

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred

I got your mail, I am use to sir you know as an attorney we are meant to serve public. I am glad I can now have every trust on you. Please as soon as this fund hit your account you will withdraw some money and make preparation on my coming. What I mean is this, you will send invitation letter so that when I go to your embassy here they will issue me visa without delay.You will also send some money that i will use for my ticket and every other process because right now i don't have money i hope on this business. If this transaction is over by this week then I will arrange my self by coming over by next week. I have been to united state before but that was long ago.

You will also make inquiry fora very lucrative business where I will invest my percentage. I want to spend the rest of my life there in your country with my family.

Please update me as soon as you hear from the bank and do not delay at all. You know we bear the same name so I will call you my namesake. I cannot wait to see you and your family I am already in love with your family. I have told my wife about you and your family she is happy about the whole thing.

Thanks and I wish you good luck. Please what is the meaning of (Yabba Dabba Doo)?

(They sent this email twice......)

(so, Wilma replied back to them twice...............)


Wilma Flintstone

To whom it may concern,

Since we do not have an International passport or a drivers licence, it will take a couple of days to get this together. We will notify you when these are ready. Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,

Wilma S. Flintstone (wife of Fred)


(I wasn't able to reply for a couple of days, so............)


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear, Mr. Fred

I have not heard from any of you, what is the problem? Is every thing ok with my friend Mr. Fred? Please somebody should get back to me.

Thanks,
Barr. Fred.


(Wilma replied to the Barrister, and since he wants to come to the states, we recommended Bedrock as a good community....)

Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

This is Wilma, I am writing this for Fred. We had a slight mishap at the drive-in restaurant last night, it seems the waitress had the rack of Reptar-Ribs too heavy and when it was placed on the side of the car, it flipped us on our side! But all ends well, everyone was ok, except for Fred, and he only slightly injured his wrist...but thats not good with the Bedrock Bowling championship coming up. He should be ok in a couple of days, though.

My reason for writing you concerns the documents your bank has asked for. You see, Fred has driven all his life without a drivers license. Yes, We know thats not smart, but neither is Fred! Also, we have never had any kind of passports, we never had a need for any. We need a few days to get Fred a drivers license. The license office here in Bedrock is only open on thursdays and fridays, so we need at least until then. I know that the bank may charge a late penalty, but Freds boss Mr. Slate told us he would cover all the charges. Let us know if this is a problem.

If you are coming here, perhaps you should consider settling in Bedrock. We have a nice climate, in fact most people here don't even wear shoes. There are lots of sturdy houses made of stone, and maybe Fred could get you into his lodge club The Loyal Order of the Water Buffalo. I'm attaching to this message a picture of the Bedrock Inn....its the only picture I have of local attractions. One more thing....Fred said that Yabba Dabba Doo is merely his _expression of excitement, and a way of wishing good luck to others.

Thank you for your help so far, and we will contact you when we have the drivers license.

Sincerely,
Wilma S. Flintstone





Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mrs. Wilma

I got your mail and I am very sorry about what happened. How is your husband doing now? I hope he is better now. Is there any number that I will call him on? I want to hear his voice so that I can feel how he is doing. Please take proper care of him okay.

Regards to the transaction, I am very happy we are concluding this, how long will it take for him to get drivers license? Is it some thing you will apply for that day and still get it that same day? If you can be able to know when exactly the drivers license will be ready then email the bank and tell them the exact time you will send it to them. I hope you get me clear? Or if you look at it as something that will take time before you will get it, then you can ask the bank if there is any other alternative apart from your drivers license. Please I want this fund to be in your account before this week runs out avoid any thing that will delay us okay.

I have seen the picture of the bedrock, it is very beautiful, I will show it to my wife when I get home I believe she will like it too. Please get back to me and tell me how your husband is doing and also tell me if the drivers license will be ready that Thursday.

I wait to hear from you.

Regards,
Barr. Fred Esq.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Hello, this is Fred Flintstone. Thanks for asking about me, I'm doing fine. It was just a slightly sprained wrist. That waitress should have know that that rack of ribs was too heavy!! But everything is ok now.
Concerning the drivers license, I intend to go take the test today, and if I pass, Should have the license by tomorrow. However, we are somewhat confused by the term "Western Union Money Transfer". I think I have mentioned to you that we are somewhat primitive here in Bedrock, and no one here seems to have ever heard of that. We do have a money transfer service called "Dino-Gram", but I'm not sure if you have that where you are. I will see if my boss Mr. Slate knows another way to do this, since he is anxious to complete the transaction. Barney Rubble suggested we just send the money to your bank through the mail, but that might take too long.
Please let us know if there is another way. I will forward a copy of my new drivers license to your bank when I get it. Thank you for your patience.
Also, I am glad to hear you might consider making Bedrock your new home! I will see if we can take any new members at The Lodge.... I think you would make a greatWater Buffalo! I also might need a good Attorney, since I will be renewing my contract with Warner Brothers soon....they own the Bedrock Quarry.
Looking forward to meeting you,
Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


(I also got a reply from the "bank".............)


Harris Blessing

Attn: Mr. Fred

We got your mail and will be waiting for the requested drivers license together with the reactivation fee $2,450usd. If you will find it difficult locating western union money transfer from your area you can make alternative of using MONEY GRAM. Look for any one that will be convenience to you and make the transfer then send the informtaion through email. You will scan the front view of your driver's license and send it as well. Thanks Harris Blessing M/D Premier International Bank Plc.



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

I will suggest you do every thing possible to make sure you get the drivers license by tomorrow please, it has happened that we are no longer going to have this money in your account this week because of the delay.

About the charge, email the bank and explain to them. Ask them if there is any other means to send the money to them. It is in there position to tell you if there will be any other alternative okay.

I am happy you are better now. Let me know as soon as you send the drivers license to the bank and make sure you update me in whatever is the outcome.

Thanks,
Barr. Fred.


(ok, so I emailed the "bank"..........)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr.Harris Blessing,
M/D Premier International Bank Plc.

We should have the license by tomorrow. However, we need another way to send the money. Do you have an address we could send a certified bank check to? The only wire service we have here in Bedrock is Dino-Gram, which is not very popular elsewhere. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

We contacted the bank, I will let you know as soon as we hear from them. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


(Evidently, the bank doesn't use Dino-Gram..............)


Harris Blessing

Attn: Mr. Fred Flintstone,

We recieved your mail this morning, we will either recieve the payment from western union money transfer or money gram. This is to save your time and our own, we can not afford to give you an account where you will make the deposit because it will take some weeks before it will get to us. western union or money gram gives immediately the transfer is made, So Mr Fred, you are advice to look for any western union or money gram close to you and make this payment.

Be informed that we can not transfer your fund without reactivating it. This is based on our rules and regulations in the bank and i believe that is how banks work all over the world. A transfer like this can not be made without reactivation so try and send the money with the information given to you. We are still waiting for the driver's license.

Thanks,

Harris Blessing
M/D Premier International Bank Plc.



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

Have you heard from the bank? Please update me okay. Still let me know if you have gotten the drivers license.

Thanks and I wish you good luck.
Barr. Fred.


(Time to contact the bank again................)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Harris Blessing,

Yes, I understand your bank policy. My boss, Mr. Slate, has been checking with his contacts and may have found us a Western Union office in the town of Tarpit, about 30 miles from here. However, he will be leaving in the morning to attend a rock quarry seminar where the Great Gazoo is the guest speaker (this is important to us in Bedrock), and won't get back until Monday. I also will have the license on monday, as they take 2 days here to put my picture on it. He seems to think we can get everything completed by the close of business monday. Thank you in advance for your patience, we as simple cavemen were not prepared for such a transaction. The Barrister Mr. Fred had some problems with some of my English, I hope you can understand. Thank you, and Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


(And also time to contact the Barrister again..........)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,
It is good to hear from you again. Yes, I got a reply from the bank, and my boss, Mr. Slate, may have found a Western Union office we can use. Mr. Slate had to make a trip to Stonecinatti this weekend to hear the Great Gazoo speak at a seminar, but I won't have my license until monday anyway. I passed the test, but it takes 2 days for them to put my picture on it. Mr. Slate says we should have the whole deal finished by monday. I'll let you know if I hear anything from the bank. I'm very excited! I've never had a license before!! Yabba Dabba Doo! Sincerely, Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

Thank you for the update, I am very happy he has found a western union. Tell whom so ever that is going to send the money through western union not to ask much question. When he get to the office tell them you want to make a transfer, they will give you a form to fill, then you know have to fill in the information they have given to you.

Make sure you update me immediately you sent the whole information.

I cannot wait to see your family.

Thanks,
Barrister Fred

Well, this is where it stands as of now........I'm supposed to contact him monday (today is sunday) but I think I'll let him wait a couple of days before I email the photoshopped stone age drivers license I came up with......So, for now.........To Be Continued???????



... yup! ...

I thought I had lost the Barrister at first, but he came back to me. Well, when I last left off, I wasn't able to reply to him for a couple of days.....so he started looking for me.


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

How are you today? I have not heard from you? Please update okay.

Thanks,
Barrister Fred.



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

How are you today? I have not heard from you so it made worried please email me on the situation okay. Have you send the copy of your drivers license to the bank?

Please let me hear from you.

Thanks,
Barr. Fred


(He sure gets edgy when I don't reply for a day or so....I guess he misses me!! I guess I better let him AND the bank know whats going on!)


Fred Flintstone

Dear Harris Blessing
M/D Premier International Bank Plc.,

This is Fred Flintstone, there has been a small problem with obtaining my license. It seems the Bedrock License Department did a very poor job, they put the wrong information on it and my picture made me look like a cartoon caveman or something, so they are going to fix it and I should have it back to send to you later today.

Also, my boss, Mr. Slate, left yesterday for Tarpit with the money to wire to you and I have not heard from him since. Have you recieved the money yet? If not, you should get it soon.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

Again it is good to hear from you. I have emailed the bank of the current situation. Hopefully this will be complete by the end of today. Barney Rubble and I will be bowling tonight, so it will be tomorrow night before I can contact you again. Let me know if you hear from the bank. Thank you, and Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely
Fred Flintstone


Apparently, the good Barrister is slipping up....I got this from the bank today, but it came from Barrister Freds email address........


Harris Blessing

Attn: Fred Flinstone,

We have not received any money yet, we will be waiting for it. It is already getting late here, in the next two hours I should be leaving the office. Make sure the money is sent to us before today runs out so that we will pick it up tomorrow morning, this will enable you recieve your fund to your account on Friday. If we should get this money tomorrow morning together with your driver's license your fund will leave to London that same tomorrow and reflect to your account on Friday. So if you want your fund this week it is left for you to make sure that the reactivation fee and the driver's license is sent to us today so that we will get it tomorrow morning and make your transfer.

Thanks,

I guess he must have caught himself, as I also got this one about 10 minutes later.....


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

The mail I sent to you I got it from the general secretary of the bank because I went to bank to know what is going on. But is unfortunate I did not meet the manager they said he has gone. Please act fast on this let us get this fund on Friday as they promised it is very important.

Please do take care of your self, and drive carefully. How is your wife and all the rest that is involve in this transaction. We are going to be together soon I am very happy.

Let me know as soon as every thing is sent to the bank.

Regards,
Barr. Fred.


then I got another (same one as before) from the bank......

Well, I guess its time to stir the pot again


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Harris Blessing
M/D Premier international bank.

This is Fred Flintstone. My boss Mr. Slate returned from Tarpit this morning and has some disturbing news. You see, he spoke with Mr. Mehoff at the Western Union office in Tarpit, and Mr. Mehoff said there has been a lot of problems wiring money to Nigeria, it seems a lot of people get involved in shady deals and have their money stolen. Mr. Slate assured him that we have seen the proper documents, but he insisted that he must see them too. So now, we have to takecopies of thedocuments to his office this thursday. It really seemed strange, because Mr. Slate had the cash for the transaction. Have you ever heard of this happening before? We are just simple troglodites and know nothing of these large transactions!
But the good news is I finally got the problems with my license straightened out, so I'm sending it now, but I hope it comes out ok, I don't have a very good scanner.
We will go back Thursday with the documents and let you know then. Thank you for your patience. Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


See attachment for the "license" I sent. The photo is actor Mark Addy, who played Fred Flintstone in the movie "The Flintstones In Rock Vegas".....




Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

I emailed the bank about a problem we had at the Western Union Office.There is a man there named Mr. Mehoff that is giving us a hard time over this. He is insisting to see the documents you sent me, so we're going back there Thursday to take them. If I get a phone number, would You call him and tell him this is legit??
I also finally got the license sent to the bank, so we don't need to worry about that anymore. We are just simple cave people and don't really understand how all this International money exchange works. I hope we can get this finished tomorrow, we want to take the kids to Jurrassic Park this weekend. Let me know if theres anything else we can do, or if you can do something.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Uh oh....I must've scared him!!!


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

I was wondering what is the delay for, any well that God I have heard from you.

Please my good friend you know I have suffered a lot for this transaction and would not want any thing that will stand as an obstacle. I will advice you know not to go bank to western union any longer to avoid intruders please. Email the bank now and tell them that you are having problem with western union, they should give us an account to make the transfer to them. I know that they will ask for charges for the delaying of the fund in their programming system but it will be better for us than loosing the whole money to the intruders.

Like I told you earlier before now a lot imposters are all over the world please be careful with the people you relate this business with. I know what I am saying I cannot afford to loose this fund because of a may mistake from any one. I am now telling you this as a lawyer I know what is happening, I know the kind of case we face every day in the law court. Please obey my advice, I will not deceive you I want to make you great.

Email the bank now and tell them that you need account to make this transfer, what ever they said let me know but make sure they give you account and do not go back to the western union office again.

I wait to hear from you.

Thanks,
Barr Fred.


And from the bank, but I'm really not sure what the last part means...


Harris Blessing

Attn: Mr. Fred Flinstone,

We got your mail this morning and we are very sorry of what you are going through in the western union money transfer. We will get back to you on the next decision on this matter.

Thanks,
General secretary

NB: Premier international bank is a new bank that just emerged to us. It is just like a sister bank to us. Just ignore it whenever I made mistake of putting it in my writing ok.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Thank you for the advice, I have already Emailed the bank and explained the situation to them. They are supposed to let me know what to do next. I will let you know as soon as I hear from them.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



uh-oh, I haven't heard from him in a day or so...I hope he hasn't gotton scared off yet


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

I am still waiting on the reply from the bank. They said they would let me know what to do, but I haven't heard a thing, do you know if they're still interested in this. If they are not, I might could get someone here at the Bank of Cobblestone Creek to come up with some ideas. I will be waiting to hear from you, I had a long light last night, it was our bowling night, and I had to play against Blowhard Sandstone. He seems to beat me every time. If I only had a way to make Barney invisible, perhaps I could win for once....do you know how to make someone invisible? Anyway, I must go to bed, I'm very tired. I'll be waiting to hear from you or the bank.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



From the "bank"...........

Now from the Barrister. Its getting so I don't hear from one without hearing from the other............


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

I got your mails, I will advice you wait till you hear from them. They must surely contact you the money has pronounced yours, so there is no way they will not be interest to transfer it to you. Please do not go for any ideas I am here to advice you the victory is for us.

Please update me as soon as you hear from the bank. I was not expecting this transaction to last up till this time. Please let us hasten up. Please make arrangement on my invitation because I want to come over immediately people I owe are on my neck. I would want us to have this concluded before Tuesday.

Please update me as soon as you hear from the bank. How is your wife? My regards to her.

Thanks,
Barrister Fred.


Well, the bank has now got 'ol Fred Flintstone really ticked off....(wink wink)......I even decided to address his name backwards.....


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Blessing Harris

I am not very happy about your fee increase, I think an additional $5500 is totally out of line. It is not our fault that you seem to be in question with Western Union, and now I'm beginning to wonder if my wife Wilma was right, if this truly is on the up and up. Mr. Barrister Fred, who is helping us with this, has been up front with all the information, and so have I by obtaining and sending you my ID when asked for it, so perhaps I need to ask you for some sort of identification before we proceed....maybe a copy of your license or passport and a copy of your bank charter, if you really are a bank. After that, we will make the arrangments to continue. I'm sorry if I sound angry, but now I'm having to work a double shift at the quarry to earn the extra money....and my dino-crane doesn't like it either. Perhaps I can win the Bedrock bowling tournament next week, as first prize is $25000.
I'll be waiting to hear from you. Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

How are you today? Have you heard from the bank? Please I need an update. Is everything all right? Please let me hear from you ok.

Regards,
Barrister Fred.


And since Fred is working double shifts, its left to Wilma to contact the Barrister, but thats ok, he seems to have somewhat of a crush on her, and who wouldn't?? Shes so nice to everyone.......


Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.

This is Wilma Flintstone, wife of Fred. Fred replied to the bank earlier today and we are still waiting on a reply, but I must tell you that Fred wasn't very happy with the banks increase in fees. He was even mad at our pet snorkasaurus, Dino!!! He is now working extra at the quarry to make some extra cash to try to pay for this. Mr. Slate is out of town for the weekend so we can't call on him, and Barney Rubble is on some secret assignment for the government and we don't know when he will be back.
But while Fred is gone, perhaps you can confide in me...why is the bank so concerned about Western Union asking questions and wanting to see the documents? Are you sure they are being honest about this? Its quite a large sum of money, and I would hate for you and us both to be the victims of a scam artist. We have grown quite fond of you, and are looking forward to meeting you when you come to Bedrock. We don't want you to fall victim to a con-game.
Fred Won't return home from work until tomorrow afternoon. Thank you so much for all your help.

Sincerely
Wilma S. Flintstone
Oh, what the heck....The Barrister has been a pretty nice guy (for a thief) and Wilma is feeling generous today, so..............


Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq......

This is Wilma Flintstone again. I have just returned from the Bedrock Inn where the owner, Mr. Yippyio Rock is a personal friend of mine. I told him how much you have helped us on this deal, and he has agreed to let you have a two bedroom suite for no charge until you can find a stone house of your own! When we get this finished, I'll email you with the details and his phone number. Just thought I would give you the good news....and don't worry, I didn't give him any details, I just told him you were helping us on a business deal.

Sincerely,
Wilma S. Flintstone


(for you Flintstone trivia freaks, in the cartoon, Yippyio Rock was better known as Freds Uncle Tex.)



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mrs. Wilma Flintstone,

How are you today? Please can I know what the bank requires from you again, what is the increment for please let me know ok? Just forward to me what they sent to you. Why would they increase the fee again, did they tell you any thing about the increase or they just increase it without explanation. Please let me know more about this ok.

Please my good friend tell Mr. Fred that I am very sorry on the inconveniency this transaction has cost to him, imagine he is now working double shift in other to accomplish this transaction. Please tell him that he will never regret it at all, if we can be able to settle with the bank between today and tomorrow at list Thursday/Friday we will achieve our aim. But please I would want you to put any thing scam out of this because this transaction is real. You should know what I have involved my self to this level cannot be a scam ok.

About the western union, did the bank still want you to send the money through western union? Please I will advice you ask them to give you account to make the payment it will be more confidential to both of us. Please I dont like much people knowing about this transaction you should understand the point I am trying to make. I cannot afford to loose this fund because of mistake, you know people can be greedy that is my reason of asking you to keep this confidential.

I will start coming over as soon as this fund is in your account. If we can finalize before this weekend then I will prepare my self the following week by then you people must have send me some money to get my travel documents ready and also my air ticket. I dont speak with you people on phone and I am not comfortable about that, please let me have a number to talk to you ok. You dont have a cell phone?

It will be better you get back to me today let me know the situation of the whole thing and know the advice to give you ok

My regards to every body.

Barrister Fred.

Fred was upset about it, but Mr. Barrister, you must understand that operating a dino-crane at the rock quarry is a very tiring job, both for the operator AND the dino-crane, and a double shift is twice as tiring! Fred was also looking forward to taking our daughter Pebbles and our neighbors son Bamm Bamm over to Jurassic Park for a picnic this weekend and had to cancel that. Fred means well, but sometimes he has a temper.

Secondly, I don't believe Fred understood that you need some cash to make your move, so I will explain it to him when he gets home. He is in the Bedrock bowling tournament later this week, and could possibly win $25000. He is trying to get his boss, Mr. Slate, to put him in touch with the Great Gazoo for some advice!! If he could beat his nemisis, Blowhard Sandstone, he might just win it all, Fred is a pretty good bowler!

Anyway, thanks so much for all your help, and hopefully we can get those people who you owe money to off your back. If you need to talk to Fred, he will be home later today.

Sincerely,

Wilma S. Flintstone


Ooooo...A letter of explaination from the bank......


Harris Blessing

ATTN: FRED FLINTSTONE,

THIS BANK IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL AND WILL CONTINUE BEEN FAITHFUL TO YOU. REMEMBER WE DONT KNOW YOU THE ONLY PERSON WE KNEW WAS YOUR LATE COUSIN WHO DEPOSITED THIS FUND WITH US. OUR ONLY CONCERN IS TO MAINTAIN THAT GOOD NAME WHICH IS OUR SYMBOL. WE ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE OF HOW GOOD YOUR COUSIN WAS TO US, WE WOULD NOT WANT TO DELAY YOUR TRANSFER. YOU ARE EVEN LUCKY WE ARE TRANSFERRING DIRECT FROM OUR BANK HERE, IN SOME CASES LIKE THIS WE WILL DIRECT YOU TO CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA WHICH IS THE HEAD OF THE BANKING INDUSTRIAL IN NIGERIA. THERE YOU WILL PAY MANY CHARGES BECAUSE THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THE FUND. THEY WILL ASK YOU FOR THE PIN CODE BEFORE THEY WILL TRANSFER THE FUND TO YOU, IF YOU DONT HAVE IT, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY MONEY BEFORE THEY WILL SECURE A PIN CODE TO YOU BECAUSE THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF THE FUND. BUT HERE WE DONT ASK FOR IT BECAUSE THE FUND ORIGINATED FROM OUR BANK HERE. WE KNEW EVERY THING ABOUT THE FUND AND WE ALSO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE LAYING AND WHEN YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUST. YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND WE HAVE SOME DOCUMENTS HERE THAT CORRESPONDED WITH THE ONE YOU SENT TO US BEFORE WE STARTED THE PROCESS OF TRANSFERRING THIS FUND TO YOU. BUT THERE IN THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA THEY DONT KNOW ANY THING ABOUT IT SO YOU WILL HAVE TO PROVE THE WHOLE THING TO THERE REASONABLE DOUBT. BEFORE YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS IT WILL COST YOU A LOT OF MONEY AND TIME. WE DONT WANT YOU TO FACE ALL THIS DIFFICULTIES BECAUSE OF HOW GOOD YOUR COUSIN WAS TO US.

LISTEN, I WAS DISAPPOINTED WHEN YOU ASK FOR THE ID, HOW CAN YOU ASK THIS BANK TO GIVE YOU ID? ARE YOU HAVING DOUBT ABOUT US? YOU SHOULD NOT FOR ANY REASON AS FOR ID FOR WHAT? THIS IS A LAY DOWN TO THIS BANK. DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SAYING AT ALL? WE ARE ONLY DOING YOU A FAVOR AND WE HAVE NOT FAILED YOU REMEMBER. AFTER YOU COMPLAINED OF YOUR DIFFICULTIES WITH THE WESTERN UNION WE HAD A MEETING AND CONCLUDED THAT WE WILL GIVE YOU AN ACCOUNT TO MAKE THE TRANSFER BEFORE WE NOW REMEMBERED THAT IT WILL NOT BE GOOD AFTER ASKING FOR REACTIVATION FEE WITH THE DIFFICULTIES YOU HAVE ENCOUNTERED WITH THE WESTERN UNION WE WILL NOW ASK FOR COST OF TRANSFER (COT) AGAIN IT WILL DELAY YOUR TRANSFER, THAT IS WHY WE WANT YOU TO PAY THE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME SO THAT AFTER PAYING IT YOU HAVE YOUR FUND IMMEDIATELY. WE HAVE NOT DISAPPOINTED YOU AND WILL NOT AFFORD TO DISAPPOINT BECAUSE WE ARE WORKING ACCORDING TO THE RULE GUIDING US. IF AFTER PAYING THIS MONEY AND YOUR FUND ARE NOT TRANSFERRED TO YOU, THEN YOU CAN TAKE US ANYWHERE. DONT YOU KNOW THAT WE HAVE RULES GUIDING US AND WE ALSO HAVE MONITORING UNIT, IF WE MESS UP WITH YOUR FUND GOVERNMENT WILL QUERY US. LISTEN WE HAD A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR LATE COUSIN AND WE WANT THAT TO CONTINUE WITH YOU. AFTER ALL, WHAT IS $5,500 TO COMPARE WITH YOUR TOTAL FUND? IN SOME BANK HERE THEY WILL NOT CHARGE YOU $5,500 FOR THE COST OF TRANSFER WE DID IT BECAUSE WE WANT YOU TO CONTINUE DOING BUSINESS WITH US.

LISTEN I HAVE A PERSONAL LIKENESS ON YOU BECAUSE OF HOW GOOD YOUR COUSIN WAS TO ME IN PARTICULAR, I AM EVEN MAKING ARRANGEMENT TO TRANSFER THE FUND TO YOUR ACCOUNT DIRECT INSTEAD OF GETTING TO LONDON FIRST BEFORE YOUR ACCOUNT BUT THE WAY YOU ARE SOUNDING NOW I WILL WORK ACCORDING TO THE BANKS DIRECTION SINCE YOU THINK WE ARE NOT DOING YOU GOOD.

IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE TRANSFER WITH THE ACCOUNT GIVEN TO YOU LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY AND ALSO TELL US WHEN IT WILL BE MADE. IF NOT TELL ME LET ME KNOW IF THERE IS ANY OTHER OPTION WE NEED TO GIVE YOU. WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU BETTER.

WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU.

THANKS,

HARRIS BLESSING.



Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Blessing,

This is Wilma Flintstone, wife of Fred. Fred is working a double shift and is not here at this time, but we are awaiting advise from Mr. Barrister Fred before we can continue. Fred was very upset when he emailed you last, but I'm sure he has cooled off. Sometimes he runs his mouth before he thinks! He just doesn't understand the banking industry, and the fact that spending the $5500 with you is much better than doing business withanother bank that will not charge anything.We have also considered getting an attorney here in Bedrock to help us do this transfer, since we are simple cave dwellers and know nothing of how to do this. I am good friends with an attorney here that owns the Bedrock Hotel, and I'm sure he can help with this. What exactly do you need from us? Our bank name and address maybe? Do you need their phone number? We really need to get started on this as soon as I hear from Mr. Barrister Fred Esq. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Sincerely,
Wilma S. Flintstone
Harris Blessing

ATTN: FRED FLINTSTONE

WE RECEIVED YOUR MAIL THIS MORNING, YOU WERE LIKE ASKING WHAT THIS BANK NEED FROM YOU. ANY WELL, ALL THE DOCUMENTS NEEDED FOR THIS TRANSACTION, YOU HAVE GIVEN IT TO US. YOUR BANKING INFORMATION WHERE THE MONEY WILL BE TRANSFERRED INTO IS HERE WITH US, THE ONLY THING WE NEED IS FOR YOU TO MAKE THIS PAYMENT AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR FUND IN YOUR ACCOUNT AS WE PROMISED YOU.

WE ARE WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU.

THANKS,

HARRIS BLESSING


And now, from the Barrister........


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Mr. Fred,

I got your mail yesterday, I could not reply immediately because I had to make inquiry from the bank and know why they make additional fee of $5,500. I found out that it is for the cost of transferring the fund to your account, they made me to understand that it is normal thing that happens in a banking industry. And they promised me that after completing this payment the fund would transfer to your account immediately.

Mrs. Wilma Flintstone, I know how your husband feel but please do not let his anger spoil what we are meant to achieve. Please calm him down and let him believe that after this transaction his financial stand will not be the same. I know we are going to make good partners in business, I even have some other business you will help me carry on when I come over but let us not talk about it now until we finalize on this. I need to come over so that we can have round table discussion.

Please my friend, do not involve any other person in this transaction no matter what happen. I have now introduced my self to the bank as your attorney remember I told you that I dont want them to know that I am involve but now I had to do it because they have programmed your money already. You will only tell them that I am your attorney here.

Now I want to bring another suggestion to you since the bank has known that I am your attorney here. I believe it will be more better I direct you on how to send the money to me so that I will go to the bank and make the payment on your behalf for them to release this fund immediately to your account. If this is okay by you then tell me how much you have come up with let us go and make a deposit, I dont want this to pass this week again. I can now boldly go to the bank on your behalf because they have known me as your attorney now.

Please get back to me on this because I am getting disturbed about the whole thing. I know you are working hard on this but we have to take a step, send what ever you have come up with let me go and make a deposit.

Thanks and I will be waiting for your reply on this. Barrister Fred.



Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Wilma Flintstone here, its good to hear from you. I was able to get Fred calmed down, and we recieved a letter of explaination from the bank. I told them that we would continue after I heard from you.

At the present moment, we only have about 3000 Clams to pay on this, and that includes the 2400 in cash that Mr. Slate fronted us. Fred is working as much as he can to raise additional funds, but it takes a while. Also, the Bedrock Bowling championship starts wednesday night and goes through friday night, and Fred hopes to win the top prize of 25000 clams!!!!

My next question concerns how to do the bank transfer. As we have said before, we are simple cave dwellers and know nothing about doing this kind of thing. I have told you about the owner of the Bedrock Inn, Mr. Yippyio Rock. He also runs, along with his partner, Mr. Perry Masonry, the law office of Masonry & Rock. He would be more than happy to assist us with this transfer, if you would tell us what you need. All we have is a small account at the South Bank of the Cobblestone Creek, unless you would rather use Mr. Slate's business account, which is at the same bank. Hopefully, you can let me know what to do sometime today so we can get started. After today, things will be very busy around here, with Fred working during the day and bowling at night.

And by the way, Fred said to tell you Yabba Dabba Doo, and his lodge members are looking forward to having a new Water Buffalo!!!

Take care, and we hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely,
Wilma S. Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Attn: Wilma S. Flintstone,

I so much appreciate your effort towards this transaction, your reward is waiting for you after this transaction. I have told my wife everything about you she cannot wait to see you she said you are such a wonderful woman.

What you have to do now is to go to your bank tell them that you want to make a transfer to the account given to you but do not go into details with them. You will now present the account given to you to them it is left for them to make the transfer and give you the transfer slip that is all. You will now inform the bank here that you have made the transfer, they will wait until it clears. My good friend Wilma you can do it, go to your bank with that $3,000 and make the transfer as soon as you get this mail. Let is stand as a deposit it is very good we deposit money, this is to avoid any other fee coming in to this transaction. Go and do it and inform them that you have deposited the sum of $3,000 in the account given to you, it will completed within the period you feel the rest will be ready.

Inform me as soon as this is down then I will proceed to the bank to make sure everything is in record. My friend Wilma, make sure this is down before you go for the Bedrock bowling championship on Wednesday.

I will be waiting to hear from you.

Thanks,

Barrister Fred.


Ok, thats where we stand today, tuesday, sept.27th......We gonna let him sit a day or two. Will Wilma make it to the bank?? Will Fred win the Bedrock bowling championship?? And will the law firm of Masonry & Rock get involved???? Hopefully, more to come as it develops!



... another brief from Bedrock, Oct. 17 ...



Its been 5 days since I got an email from the Barrister. Either he got tired of the game, or the last email I sent got him. Why don't we try to see if he's still around?


Fred Flintstone

Oct. 6

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq., It has been now 5 days since we last heard from you. Hopefully, you are safe, but if so, why haven't we heard from you? The 3000 clams are in the South Bank of the Cobblestone Creek. We are awaiting further instructions. Let us know what to do next. If we do not hear from you, we will assumethe worstand have our attorney contact the bank.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone




Another day passes, and nothing from the Barrister. I was ready to give up and call it quits.....but then, from the vast void of cyberspace, he's baaaaccck!!!!!...and he sounds ticked off!!!


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,
I just got your mail and all is well noted to me.
Well, i am now in Accra Ghanafor a special engagement, look mr Fred i am not happy with you at all because of the whole situation and i never believe that this transaction will last up till now meanwhile you are not a man of your self.

Now listen i am afraid if we did not meet up with the bank requiement by monday they will definately confiscate this fund and all our effort will be invain.

So mr Fred, if you are realy want to us to finalize this transaction as soon as i will advice you to go back to your bank and witdraw the $3000 and send it accros over to me here in Ghana so that i can move sraight to bank and make the payment to them and conclude every neccessary arrangement with them in person.

Oncemore, i will advice you to ignore every question that come from your bank or any person you shouid understand that this is a deal between both of us to avoid jopardize the transaction because some people doesn't like the progress of others so be informed.
M y regard to my good friend Wilma,

Waiting to hear from you soon,

Barr Fred.





So, he's mad? Well, I'm the one that should be mad!!!!


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

Since the tone of your last email appears that you are upset with me, lets see if I have the facts correct. First, you ask me to send some documents to the bank, which I did. Then, you ask me to provide an ID, which I did. Then, you ask me to send money via Western Union, which I attempted, but due to THEIR questions you asked me not to go to them again, which I did. Then, you asked me to deposit my 3000 clams, which I had to work overtime to earn, in the bank....which, again, I did. NOW....you want me to withdraw the 3000 clams and send to you. It seems that I should be the one who should be upset with you, because it is beginning to appear that you really don't know what you are doing. But since this IS quite a large sum of money, and will probably be worth the effort, I will do as you ask. I will withdraw the 3000 clams this afternoon. How do you want it sent to you? And I also need an address to send it to. Please hurry, so I can get this sent today. And don't be upset with me, I have done all you have asked. I am not upset with you. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone




I waited about 2 hours and sent another..........


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

I need you to respond today....you say we must hurry, I'm now waiting on you. I need to get this done TODAY! I have the 3000 clams in my possession now, where do I send it to??? Yabba Dabba Doo!!!

Sincerely
Fred Flintstone




And another, about an hour later.........


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

It is almost the end of the day here. I'm afraid if I don't hear from you soon, I might be tempted to spend some of this money at Bronto-Burger. Please respond soon so I will know what to do!!

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone
P.S.- Yabba Dabba Doo.





Got a reply within 30 minutes!!!


Barrister Fred Williams

This is the information you are going to send the money with.
1 Name; EMMANUEL..M. MENSAH.
2 TEXT QUESTION; WHAT YOUR NAME ANSWER. ; FRED.
3 WESTERN UNION ACCARA GHANA
THIS IS THE INFORMATION YOU WILL GO TO THE WESTERN UNION WITH TO MAKE THE PAYMENT DONT FAIL TO GO WITH THIS INFORMATION TO AVOID ANY MISTAKE.
I LOOK FORWARD TO COLLECT THE CONTROL NUMBER THEY WILL GIVE YOU FROM THE WESTERN UNION CENTER.

5 minutes later, he sent the same email.........


Barrister Fred Williams

I think its time for Fred and Wilma to get their own attorney to handle this....let me introduce to you Mr. Perry Masonry, of the law firm Masonry & Rock............


Perry Masonry

Greetings, Mr. Fred.

My name is Perry Masonry, of the law firm Masonry and Rock, here in Bedrock. I have beenhired by Fred and Wilma Flintstone to handle a transaction between the two of you, specifically, the transfer of $3000 to you. Although I would not recommend for them to proceed with this transaction without some type of security deposit from you, Fred INSISTS that I get this certified check sent to you immediatley without delay, and since I am bound to follow my clients wishes, that is what I must do. However, there is just one problem. Fred said he has told you numerous times that there is no Western Union anywhere near Bedrock, so sending this by Western Union will result in at least a 4-5 day delay. My advice to you is to send me your mailing address, and I can use an overnight service we have called FexEd. They ship anywhere in the world guaranteed overnight, however they need and address to deliver to, and someone must be there to sign for delivery. Please email me your mailing address today without delay and this will be a simple transaction. My email address is: masonryandrock@xxx-xxxxx.xxx
Thank you in advance for your promptness in this matter.

Sincerely,
Perry Masonry

The Law Office of Masonry & Rock
Bedrock, Ca 70777



Barrister Fred seem to be a little nicer to Mr. Masonry......


Barrister Fred Williams

My dear colleague,

How are you todays? nice to hear from you, and Im very happy about your involvement in this matter.

Without wasting your time, I have make an Enquirer about sending this money by FedEx or any speed post, Im very sorry it wouldnt work out.

Reasons, a lot of people have lost their money through this way and I wouldnt want us to fall a victim of this.

The best way you can do this, is through WESTERN UNION OR MONEY GRAM.

My learned colleague, bet me nobody will question you sending money to your fellow colleague, so I advice you to go with the money your self to the western union or money gram with the information I gave to your client (Fred) or you go with him.

That is the fastest way of sending money world wild, since they work 24 hours of the day.

I want Fred to remember that we have date with the bank tomorrow,being Monday, if we fail to meet up with the bank demands by tomorrow, am sorry I will demand the power of attonery from Fred since he can not meet up.

Looking forward to hear from you before today get dark.

Regards,

Fred.


He forwarded a copy of that to Fred Flintstone too...at least he's professional!



Oct. 9th, 2005 -- Uh oh.....the Barrister aint happy!...............


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

Please I just want to remind you that we have only have tomorrow to surface at the bank, which I let your attorney to know about, if I dont get this money send across to me by Monday please dont blame me for any thing.

Secondly concerning the money, as soon as this money gets into your account please dont temper with my own percentage, until I get over there, you can share your own the way you want it,becouse everybody in your town is away of this transaction.

So you better hurry up so that I can know how to queer up, because Mr. Harris Blessing is no longer happy about the whole issue, which I let your lawyer to know about.

Looking forward to hear positive information from you by Monday.

Regards to my good friend Wilma.
Fred.



Its a good thing we got Perry Masonry on the case!!!


Perry Masonry

Dear Barrister Fred,

With all due respect sir, today is Sunday and my office is closed on sundays, I just happened to stop by and saw your Email. As Mr. Flintstone has told you on a number of occations, the nearest Western Union office is in the town of Tarpit, with ismuch more than a stones throwfrom here. Since I'm tied up until thursday in court cases, I'm going to try to hire a private investigator, Mr. James Rock Ford, to be a courier and deliver this in the morning, provided he isn't in jail. You may want to email me the forms to make you Mr. Flintstones power of attorney, as you suggested. As far as Mr. Blessing is concerned, don't you worry about him, as we have copys of all this and can prove in a court of law that the money legally belongs to Mr. Fred Flintstone. I have instructed Mr. Flintstone to let me handle things from this point, so you will direct all your correspondense to me. If this Mr. Blessing becomes a problem for you, let me know and I will contact the banking commision in your country and issue a freeze on all his accounts. I will let you know if I successfully locate Mr. Rock Ford in the morning. Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Perry Masonry, Attorney at Law



The Barrister sent this back to Perry, and also sent a copy to Fred


Barrister Fred Williams

Dear perry,

Just got your mail,what will it take you and fred to move to the town of Tarpit to make this tranfer ,look If I have known from the adam that fred cant handle this bussinss I woundnt have start this with him at first,please my good friend I al ready rised some money to queer up with this transaction.

As I told I will never be a party of courier service to avoid any side talk about someone money, for our own intrest ,you collect the informations from fred and move to the town of Tarpit and make this, this is simple, and forward the control number to me as soon as possible.

I m almost getting tired of all this wasting of time.

Looking forward to have the control number,

Regards,

Fred



So, Perry replied in his best "lawyer" talk.............


Perry Masonry

My good Barrister Fred,

Lets take this one issue at a time. First, I believe Mr. Flintstone told you up front that he was an unsophisticated, uneducated caveman, and had no idea what to do in this situation. If you remember, you called on him for help, he didn't call on you, so give him a break. Next, you seem to be in a hurry, perhaps you should calm down a little. Your cut from this is 60% of 11.4 million dollars, which is 6.8 million dollars. It seems to me that you haven't spent much time at all for such a large sum of money. I've also noticed from your emails to Mr. Flintstone that you have claimed 10% of this fund to be used for "expenses". Can you send me a detailed list of just what these "expenses" consists of? One million bucks seems too much for "expenses" associated with a fairly simple transfer such as this. Third, as I told you before, I'm tied up in court until thursday, at which time I will go with Mr. Flintstone to Tarpit to make the transaction. We have came this far, lets keep our wits about us. Thank you for your support, I will be expecting the detailed list of expenses and I will email you thursday when we leave for Tarpit. One more thing, Mr. Flintstone said to tell you Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Perry Masonry, attorney at law



From the Barrister...........He seems "nicer" to Mr. Masonry...


Barrister Fred Williams

My good friend,

I just got your mail and thanks for your understanding, i understands all you said,when i heared that fred have involved person like you in this matter i was very happy, and now that all our effort will not be in vain.
I will like you to understands my point right, from the beginging of this deal,i didn't say that i will take 10% for expenses,i only said that 10% will map out for any expenses made in this trasnsaction,if Fred will remeber.

But now i shall notify the bank to give us the grace still thursday as you said, please let Fred understand this,monitary aspet can bring queral between me and my good friend Fred,God knows that,please when you get to tarpit,endevour to fill the form correctly yourself with the information i gave toFredto avoid any mistake of any kind and remeber your shouldn't entertain any question of any kind,let them understands that you sending money to your friend or colluege in ghana that all.

My good friend, lastly i will like to see you in person as soon as this transaction is over,i know you must have a nice place for rest over there,waiting to hear from you by thursday.

My regards to your client and family.

Fred.



I waited 2 days, then sent him this.........


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

My good friend and attorney Perry Masonry wanted me to try to get an email to you. We are going to try to leave for Tarpit in the morning if we can, we are experiencing some bad weather here, probably due to some prehistoric meteor ash cloud or something, and most power, including Mr. Masonrys, is out. but we will try to get the 3000 clams sent to you. It will probably be late Friday before we return here. Hopefully, you will have something by then. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


That last one was sent wednesday night, and today is sunday. There has been no contact since then, and to be honest, I didn't have time to mess with this until now, so I guess its time to try to contact the good barrister again!


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

We have just returned from Tarpit, and it was a horrible trip and a waste of time, thanks to your information. The weather was bad at the start and we slid off the road and was stuck for a day, then we were chased by T-Rex, then by the time we got there Friday, the Western Union office was closed. There were no hotels available, so we slept in the street, where Mr. Masonry was arrested and thrown in jail for vagrancy, then I was chased by another T-Rex, then the next morning I could find no food, then when Western Union opened, they said again that I MUST have your bank routing number AND your mailing address. I'm attaching the form they said I must fill out so you can see for yourself. I had to spend 500 clams of the 3000 to get Mr. Masonry out of the slammer, so now all I have is 2500. If you are at all interested in completing this transaction which YOU initiated, please send me your MAILING address so we can get this done. We had to catch a ride home in the back of a farmers buggy with wild boars and I just got home, so none of us are very happy at the moment. If you can't handle this, please put us in touch with someone who can. Yabba Dabba Doo.
Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone


I included a Western Union form that clearly asks for a mailing address, then I had Perry Masonry send the Barrister an email


Perry Masonry

Dear Barrister,

Due to the issues associated in making a wasted trip to Tarpit with incomplete information provided by you, I am going to bill you for my expenses involved. The total amount is 500 clams. Would you rather use Western Union, Paypal, or perhaps send me a certified check?
Please let me know your preferred method of payment as soon as possible. Thank you for your support.

Perry Masonry, attorney

Will we hear from the barrister again???? Who knows!!! More updates when they become available.



[Nov. 20: Fred has the touch, or the luck, or both - it's still going on!]

Oct 16. Well, its been another 2 days, and I haven't heard from him. I'm afraid he got tired of the game, and said the heck with it, so I'm going to try one last time.....He always did like Wilma, so lets see if he will reply to her.................


Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq,

Hi, Wilma Flintstone here. I surley hope this message finds you well, as we haven't heard from you in several days now. I assume you got the email from Fred about his "adventure" in Tarpit.
I've decided that I'm going to step in and take over on this transaction from this point on, if you are still interested. Although Fred means well, his heart is much bigger than his brain, so he seems to bungle up everything he attempts to do.
First, is the information concerning where to send the money to still correct? Let me know as soon as you can, so I can get this done myself. Keep in mind, however, that after getting Mr. Masonry out of jail and paying him his fee, there is only 2000 clams left, maybe that will be enough to reactivate the account. If not, let me know and I can pawn my wedding ring, its worth about 2000 clams by itself!
I spoke with Mr. Masonry about his charges, and it seems he sent or is sending you a bill, don't worry about it for now, after this transaction is finished, you will have plenty of money to pay him with.
So, please Mr. Barrister Fred, even if you no longer wish to finish this transaction, let us know that you are well. We have all grown quite fond of you, our daughter Pebbles has even started calling her little stuffed dino "Barrister Fred". I'm waiting to hear from you.

Sincerely,
Wilma S. Flintstone
Another day passes, and I was SURE I had lost him......but wait!!!! I guess it just took a womans touch to bring him back!!!

Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Wilma,

Just got your mail,well now that i know your husband,Fred is not capeble of handling this deal,and beside i have made my self alier in the bank of your late cousin,whose deposite is supposed to be in his account by now.

Look i'm lawyer and have some reputations to protects in this country,

I told fred,that i have some money over here with me,since he said he have only us3000,so that i can make it up and go to the bank my self and make this deposit, but he wounld't understand,so all i'm looking forward is for Fred to make the payment,so that bank tranfer this money .simply...

Afterall we all have share in the money.

Regards,

Barr.Fred.



Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

This is great news indeed! I'm going to Tarpit friday with Barney and Betty Rubble....We will leave Fred at home this time. Again, what do I need to take to Western Union? You said something earlier about a code or something? Let me know tomorrow so I can get this done. Thank you,

Sincerely,
Wilma Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Wilma,

TEXT QUESTION; WHAT YOUR NAME

ANSWER. ; FRED.

ADDRESS; Western Union ACCARA, GHAN

As soon i get the control no from i shall leave for bank immediately with one i going to make it up with.

Regards,



Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

Thank you for the information. I will get the money sent on friday. Now, they will give me a code number of some type to give to you, right? I think thats how it works. Also, you did not say if I still have enough money left, since Freds little adventure in Tarpit the last time all that I have left is 2000 clams. I'm hoping thats enough for you to work with.
Also, Mr. Masonry is giving me a problem about you owing him money. Perhaps you should email him and let him know that as soon as we finish this, you will settle up with him. Thank you, sir.
It will be late friday before I can return with whatever information Western Union gives me, So I will get in touch with you as soon as I get back.

Sincerely,
Wilma S. Flintstone



And, from Perry Masonry.........

Perry Masonry

Dear Barrister,

My good friend Wilma Flintstone informed me today that she and you are still working together on this account, and asked me to forgive the bill that I sent to you to cover expenses in our trip to Tarpit, so consider it done. Wilma seems to have a lot of confidence in you, and believes this deal will be completed this weekend. She also has some information for you concerning some stone houses she has found for you, located in the Dinosasses Subdivision in South Bedrock, she seems to think that you would fit right in!
Anyhow, she and the Rubbles will be leaving for Tarpit in the morning by train, and she will call me when she arrives. I will be the contact between you and her until she arrives home. We are trying to keep this from Fred, so he won't get a chance to bungle it this time. Let me know if you hear from him, and I will deal with it from here. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Thank you, and please accept my apoligy for any prior misunderstanding.

Sincerely,
Perry Masonry, attorney



And now, from Fred himself...........

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

I found out about this yesterday, and while I'm not comfortable with Wilma going to Tarpit, I believe she CAN get this deal sorted out. I was able to give her some more money, so now she has the full 3000 clams again. The weather is still not very good here, but should not be a factor, since Wilma is riding the train this time, but they have been having lots of T-Rex problems in Tarpit. Since I don't have a phone, she will be calling Mr. Masonry for updates. We will let you know when she has sent the money. Thank you for your patience, and Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Friday passes and no response from the barrister, so Perry sends him an email.........

Perry Masonry

My good friend Barrister Fred,

We have just been contacted by Wilma Flintstone concerning the Western Union money transfer. The money has been sent, 3000 clams as you requested, however there is a problem with the rail system in Tarpit and Wilma cannot return home for two days while repairs can be made. Part of the tracks were damaged in another T-Rex incident. Fred was here in my office when she called and she said something about having a control number for you, but the phone lines went dead. They are having lots of problems in Tarpit.
However, your lack of correspondence concerns me greatly. Are you still interested in completing this transaction? We are trying to re-establish phone contact with Mrs. Flintstone now. If you want the control number so you can get the dough, you need to contact me or Mr. Flintstone immediatley, I would hate to think we put Wilma in peril for nothing.
Thank you in advance for your promt response.

Sincerely,
Perry Masonry, attorney



I figured that would wake him up.............

Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

Just got an email from your lawyer,and i have wrote to him few minute ago,so fred send across the control number to me or let her send the payment informations the Western Union gave to her.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Regards,

Fred.



And to Perry.............

Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Perry,

Just got your mail,thanks for your update,why are you sounding this way,if am still in interested in completing this transaction,why not.

If you have it you can now send it to me with the payment informations.

Regards,

Fred.


He doesn't sound too concerned about Wilma, does he?


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Wilma said she does have the control number you speak of, but the phone lines went dead before she could give it to me. There was another T-Rex attack in Tarpit, and the rail lines were damaged also, so it will be at least monday before Wilma can get out of there, assuming she is ok. I have confidence, though, because she is with the Rubbles, and their son Bamm Bamm can whip any T-Rex around. Mr. Masonry and I will keep trying to re-establish phone contact today. Please be patient, but at the moment, I'm just concerned for her safety. We will let you know as soon as we get the number. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



its been 24 hours since the last email, time to send another. I get the feeling that the barrister may be losing interest, so lets dangle a carrot in front of him...............

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Yabba Dabba Doo, We were able to get in touch with Wilma today, and she is fine, as are the Rubbles. It sure made me feel better! The railroad will be repaired and she will be able to return to Bedrock on monday. She gave me a Western Union control number to give to you, so I wrote it down. Its 10 digits long, however, does that sound right to you? Seems a little long to me, but what do I know? She also wanted me to ask you if you are interested in the houses for sale in the Dinoasses Subdivision of Bedrock. There are some pretty bigones there, she thinks you would be one of the biggest!! She seems to like you a lot, so don't dissapoint her! I'm getting excited again, maybe this will all be worth it!!! Again, yabba dabba doo!

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



I thought that would wake him up.....oh, and he wants that house in the "Dinoasses Subdivision"......now THATS funny!!!!

Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

Just got your mail,i was happy when i heared that you getting excited again,well i thank God that is Wilma is okay,and Wilma is also right concerning the 10digits no.(control no).as far as she payed with the information i gave to her.

Acquiring a house in Dinoasses Subdivision of Bedrock will be okay,since you and Wilma have already said so,as far is near to your own house,but i will like you to know that i will be coming with my whole family down to your country,may be to settle there,and remeber you said you will introduces to different kind of bussiness.Wilma is my good friend, i will not dissapoint her, her happiness is my concerns.

So looking forward to get the control number from Asap.

Regards,

Fred.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

I'm so glad to hear that your whole family is coming, I'm sure they will like it here in Bedrock. If you have kids, Jurrasic Park is nearby, they will love it!
It sounds like you want to change professions, what line of work are you thinking about? Theres lots of opportunities here, I've been thinking about making breakfast cereal and name it after my daughter, Pebbles. When I get this money, I will be able to get started!
Anyway, when Wilma called, I was at Mr. Masonrys office and I wrote the number down, but I seemed to have misplaced it...I'm SURE its around here somewhere, I'll find it. I been looking all night, but its here somewhere. The first three numbers were 265, I think, if that helps. I know its here somewhere. I'll let you know when I find it. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Its been three days now with no contact....lets see if he's still here.............

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.

Wilma made it home last night and is still in bed this morning, she was very tired. However, Mr. Masonry stopped by and said that Western Union called his office and said the 3000 has not been claimed yet.....did you forget? I am waiting on further instruction from you.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Yep! He's still here.......

Barrister Fred Williams

DEAR FRED,
HOW DO YOU WANT TO CLAIM THE MONEY,WHERE I DON'T HAVE THE PAYMENT INFORMATION,BE SERIOUS.

FRED.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Please forgive my forgetfulness. I realize now I didn't give you the control number. All of that has been left at Perry Masonrys office. If you will email him, he is waiting to hear from you. Thank you, and Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Well, 3 days went by and nothing, so I had Perry try to contact him.............

Perry Masonry

Dear Barrister,

I have in my possession the Western Union control number that Wilma Flintstone received when she sent a sum of money to you, 3000 clams to be exact. In a conversation with Fred Flintstone this morning, he said he told you to contact my office for the number, however, that was 4 days ago. I don't want to send the number to you without hearing from you first, in case the people who were after you for debt owed have somehow gotten to you. Please contact me within 3 days to confirm you are still in need of the number. If not, we will cancel it and get a refund of the cash. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Perry Masonry, attorney



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Perry,

Just got your mail, well am getting very tried of the whole thing, look am not begging you people money to eat, is just to make sure this move smoothly, but I dont understands what you people are taking me to be.

Well if you have the no with you, you can now send it to me.

Fred.



The Barristers last email has ticked off Perry Masonry...............

Dear Barrister, If you are really a barrister,

Considering the tone of you last email, I'm beginning to doubt that you are indeed an attorney, your just a lying con man that is trying to get my clients money. A legitimate barrister would never grow "tired" of serving his client! I'm going to suggest to Mr. Flintstone that he return to Western Union to cancel the entire transaction and get a refund of his $3000. Of course, what the Flintstones decide to do is up to them, if they want to give you the control number, thats up to them, but my advice to them is to steer clear of your lies. I am resigning from this case.
If you want to continue this, contact the Flintstones.

Perry Masonry, attorney



And the news has Wilma upset!!!

Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Wilma Flintstone here, Fred is at work. Perry Masonry just came by here and was very upset, and told me he was quitting! He was telling me that you are a lying no good cheating con man, and to cancel our Western Union transaction and ask for a refund....I simply cannot believe this! I will wait till I hear from you before I do anything. If you do not reply, then I suppose it must be true!

Your good friend,
Wilma S. Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Wilma,

Look what have I done to be treated like this, dont allow our effort to be in vain, I have spend much time and others things toward this transaction and now your are telling that Perry is upset, this money belong to us and not him, remember, from the beginning of this, we are not complain of anything and now that we are almost at the end you he want to get everything spoilt.

Consider the long way we have went through.
Pleases sent the control no so that I can go to the bank and make this payment.

Regards

Fred.



Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Yes, you are correct, this does not belong to Mr. Masonry. At first, I thought we had another problem, because when I got home last monday, I turned everything over to him, including the Western Union paperwork with the control number, but when he came by here he gave it all back, so here is the control number. 968-273-2419. Let me know as soon as you get the 3000 clams so we can proceed.

Your friend,
Wilma Flintstone


Of course thats a bogus number.....actually, if you look at the numbers on a telephone, this number spells out "you-are-a419". So now, the poor barrister is going to make a trip to Western Union for nothing!


Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

Did you get the money? We haven't heard anything from you today? Are you ready to plan your trip here to Bedrock? I hope you didn't take our 3000 clams and run, like Mr. masonry said you would....let us know. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Wilma,
Just sent the Western Union paperwork with the control number to me to be sure,before i can now go to bank.

Fred
I didn't have time to deal with this for a few days, so I sent this..................

I gave it a couple of days, then picked up a blank Western Union form and filled out a bunch of nonsensical information...yabba dabba doos and stuff like that.

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

Here is the form you wanted. We have had computer problemsfor the last few days. Let us know when you have the money. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Fred Flintstone



A week goes by.................

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

Have you got the money yet? We haven't heard anything from you. Are you ready to make the transfer? Let us know something. Yabba Dabba Doo.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone
Well, its been a couple of weeks, lets try to wake 'ol barrister up........

Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

I'm sorry we haven't gotten in touch with you lately, but we been having a lot of T-Rex attacks around here and they keep knocking out our internet service. I am ready to try to resend the 3000 clams, if you are still there. Try to let me know something before T-Rex strikes again.

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone
Whoa....I didn't expect a reply the same day...I guess he was waiting for me. He doesn't sound too happy either.

Barrister Fred Williams

Dear Fred,

Try and recomfirm the payment information now,you know this transaction is taken too long and i don't like it.

Fred.



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred,

Yabba Dabba Doo!!! It looks like I was able to get through this time! The original transaction was canceled because Wilma was afraid some Raptors were going to get the numbersowe went ahead and got our money back, but there is some good news!!! The Bedrock Airport has just announced weekday pterodactyl flights to Rock Vegas and Tarpit, so Wilma is going down monday to resend it. She will give you the information when she gets back. Like I said earlier...Yabba Dabba Doo!

Sincerely,
Fred Flintstone



Its been a week now, lets try him again.............

Wilma Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

We haven't heard from you this week, Fred said he emailed you tuesday with the Western Union information you needed, did you recieve it? We have been having computer problems, I hope you got the email, let me know if you didn't, I might have to give you a phone number where you can reach me if you have to. Just let me know.

Sincerely,
Your friend,
Wilma S. Flintstone



Fred Flintstone

Dear Mr. Barrister Fred Esq.,

We still have not heard from you....I trust that you haven't stolen our money. I do not even know if you got the confirmation number, or ANY of our emails. You need to let us know something, its been a week now....Yabba Dabba Doo.

Fred Flintstone


Well, we shall see if this will keep going!
