LADISLAV HUNTER

Dear Mariam,

as I am currently away from home travelling a lot with a tight schedule due to the current pre-mission inflight training program, which is taking place at Baikonur, Khazakstan. I don't have access to a phone here and I'm sure NASA monitors us Astronauts pretty closely given the fact, that it is only two month until the upcoming Mars mission is going to be launched. As I understand it, this transaction is supposed to be kept confidential and so we wouldn't want my employers to investigate into this matter now, would we? I therefore advise that we refrain from using a telephone for the time being.
I can access a fax, though. The number is: 1-309-xxx-xxxx.
Tell your son Mustapha that he can contact me either via email or fax.
Keep the good faith!

Your Friend

Lad Hunter

LADISLAV HUNTER

Dearest Mariam,

I feel somewhat compelled by your tone. What do you mean by: "ACT ACCORCONDILY"?
Even though I know that you are of noble Afreakin heritage, you should know who you are dealing with and that I'm not to be fooled around with.
Now, before you order me to go to Longdon, make sure your son introduces himself in a proper way. Let me show you how we do this in my parts:

Please allow me to introduce myself.
I'm a man of wealth and taste.
I've been around for a long, long year.
And I was around when Isa Wanker had her moment of doubt and pain!
Made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate!
I rode a tank, held a general's rank when the Blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank.
Just as every cop is a criminal and all the sinners saints.
As heads is tails, just call me Lad Hunter, cause I'm in need of some restraint.

Now please, as eager as I am to help you, I gave you a fax number and I also gave you a reason why I couldn't talk to you on the phone! Reread my earlier message, if you didn't get the point! I'm with NASA, they get pretty itchy when a high profile mission like our mission to Mars could be jeopardized!
If you want me to, I'll attach for you a scan of my NASA identification card in the next email.
Please, send me some proof of identification as well.

And one more thing. Release the caps lock button on your keyboard, for I don't like to be shouted at.
I am a distinguished personality in my society with an outstanding reputation. Did I mention to you before, that I have a degree in high energy gabloonzian singularity engineering? Well that should surely ring a bell, so may I politely ask that you treat me with all due respect and don't simply "order" me to do things. I will then help you in any way heavenly possible, I promise.
I want you to understand that I truly am your friend.
As a proof of my friendship towards you, I ask you to please address me as Lad Hunter, not Ladislav. All my dear friends call me Lad Hunter.

Your true friend

Lad Hunter


"MARIAM ABACHA"

Thanks

LADISLAV HUNTER

Hi Mariam, my friend!

I did mail you. what else do you need from me? You have my fax number, so the ball is in your court now.
I'll be off for a parabola flight tomorrow testing the ships flux-compensators during hyperthermiatrical stasis reticulation in the lower orbit.
But what am I telling you. You now how it is. You've seen one endoplasmatic cataclyptical reversion and you've seen them all.
Haha! Cheers my noble lady!
Now please, remember to fill me in on the details asap!
Oh, yes. One more thing: I want you to call me "Lad Hunter", not the formal "Ladislav", for I consider you my friend. Who knows? It might even go beyond that later... I'd love to see a picture of you. How old are you anyways? Do you want to see a picture of me?

Your true Friend

Lad Hunter

Authors note: I thought I had been coming on to strong and so I thought this was my farewell message to her - but no!


LADISLAV HUNTER

Subject: Were you joking?

Hello Mariam,

since you didn't answer me I assume it was a joke. I don't know what your reason for joking with me was, but it's ok. Business opportunities come and go. I have now someone I can deal with who is real. It's money from an oil contract. The money has almost been released and I only have to go to Western Union to wire the fee and then this deal will be fine. I would rather have dealed with you, though, because I thought you were a nice lady.
Bye, my friend

Lad Hunter

No Mr. Hunter, please! Don't go for that other scammer!

Subject : Re: I WAS NOT IN TOWN..

Dear Lad Hunter,
I am very sorry for not mailing you since i was not in town and i was trying to send you that mail yseterday i do not know if the mail have rech you sothat is why i send it again. I believe everything is going to work out.
How are you, i belive everything is okey. I have finalize with my son Mustapha and he his travel to Abuja to day to make sure that he put everything togetter. Please sure my son Mustapha will contact you tomorrow on your fax line to update you the porgrest of the project please my friend keep everything contentiontal.
Thanks
Mariam Hajia Abacha.

Ok, time to take this to the next level...


LADISLAV HUNTER

Subject: Welcome back!

Ok Mariam,

that's fine. I'll let you know if the fax arrived. One more thing: do you have any sort of identification you could scan and send me? I will provide you with my own ID as well if you would like me to. It would strengthen my confidence in this transaction to know that the person I'm dealing with is real, if you know what I mean. After all, the world is a bad place and full of crooky people. Thanks in advance my dear Lady.

By the way, the lower orbit tests of the new flux compensators were a complete success and me and the rest of the crew are on leave for a week. I'll be spending that week with my old pal Bilbo Baggins at his home at the Shire. He is a very close friend who even wrote a book about my space flight experiences. The book is called "There and Back Again" and I will scan the cover and email it to you. I'll ask Mr. Baggins to approach his publisher for a special hardcover edition copy which I shall personally sign and send to you. I don't have access to the internet at Mr.Baggins' house. You know, he's a little old fashioned in some ways. However, I'll be checking my mail at an internet cafe.

Your friend

Dear Lad

the true picture of the funds for your eye veiw.

Hajia.Mariam Abacha



Money trunk pics I haven't seen yet!


LADISLAV HUNTER

Wow! Mariam!

That looks like a lot of money in that picture!! I can smell that beaver (money) coming from far away!
Unfortunately I will be off for testing again during the next couple of days. This time it's going to be in the higher orbit, where we'll conduct some discombobulate leiotrichiousity testing of the rhopalic snollygoster of the birectangular synopsys. I'm sorry if this sounds too scientific to you, but I'm all excited about the perspective of going to Mars.

Me and my crew, we have been behaving like little children at the prospect of inducing sabermetrician calabimitularity at conditions of zero gravity. Can you imagine that?!
Well, the only possible setback could come from a severe increase of a sunburst induced hebesphenomegacorona activities. well, this is a Mars atmosphere phenomenon best compared to increased particle beams hitting the earth atmosphere from the aurora coriolis caused by a slight poleshift of the sun.
I'm sorry Mariam! I tend to drift off on these topics. I truly live for science! However, I will not forget that I have dedicated myself to helping you out.
I promise, everything will go according to plan.
I am able to email you during the oncoming mission (june 27th through july 1st), but I must tell you in advance that communication might be impaired from particle jets hitting the transmitter units.

Your true (excited) friend

Lad Hunter


LADISLAV HUNTER

Sorry Miriam, it's me again, Lad. I forgot to attach my ID to my last email. Probaly I was too excited! Here it is. It's my NASA identification.



[As the astute reader may suspect, this picture has been altered here at Scam-o-Editorial. Small simians and dogs have gone into space but NASA are not yet sending up moose because, Bullwinkle's kindly reputation to the contrary, they are too short-tempered for extended teamwork in cramped quarters. "Lad's" photo was that of astronaut and US Navy Capt. Kenneth Bowersox, who looked much more convincing than a moose. We felt shy about using the captain's photo (after all, would you want your picture here?) but you can learn more about his career chez NASA.
And now back to our regularly scheduled scam.]

The faxman is on the case, baby!




LADISLAV HUNTER

My dear Mrs. Mariam,
I have received your sons fax. He has told me about the lawyer, barrister Obi. I prepared a paper which I tried to fax to the lawyer, but I constantly get an automated voice message saying: "The service you requested is not available at present". I checked my machine on a different number and it worked fine. It might be due to the fact, that this was not my own machine as I'm abroad as I told you. Maybe the machine doesn't allow long distance connections. I have attached the paper for the lawyer, though and am still able to receive faxes via my webbased fax-forwarding service. Please tell your son Mustapha to get in touch with me via email and tell me the lawyers email address as it hasn't been provided to me yet.
Please forward the attached scanned paper to barrister Obi.
Thank you and kind regards

Your families friend

Lad Hunter

Dear Barrister Obi,

thanks for your reply and don't worry.
I know these strikes can be a pain in the ass. Damn peasant proletarians! All they do is keep decent folks like us from conducting some serious business, right?

Anyway, I was expecting YOU to fill me in on the details of the proceedings, so I could start planning my trip to Longdon. The email address of the security company (2003@yahoo.co.uk) doesn't seem to be valid and when I tried to call I get a busy signal. Please supply me with a working email address.

Lad tells Mariam of his explosive diarrhea and that he loves her. He's a real womanizer...


"MARIAM ABACHA"

Dearest lovely Mariam,

I couldn't contact the security company yet, but will do so today. You know, I was ill, suffering from eleemosynarius houghmagandy of the inner ichthyophagous. First the Doctors thought I had SARS! Luckily it turned to be a wrong diagnosis, but it still kept me from all activities as houghmagandy is accompanied by severe diarrhea and nausea and since I don't take my Computer to the john, I wasn't able to contact the security company.
I hope all is well with you. So it seems we were both sick, though I think that you probably weren't glued to the toilet for three days as I was, or where you?
Hope to hear from you soon! You have not been writing me much lately. I'm really doing this mainly for you, as I think I'm starting to develop feelings for you that go beyond normal friendship. I hope I can meet you in person soon.

Your passionate friend

Lad Hunter

Our cosmonaut has a problem with travelling to unknown places...


LADISLAV HUNTER

Dear James,

I will book a flight to London as soon as I get the documents from you. I must ask you for one small thing, though. I want you to make sure that I am picked up at the airport and I need to know the person that is going to pick me up. As a scientist, I hate any kind of uncertainties. Please have the person that is going to pick me up have his/her picture taken, holding a sign with my name on it and then scan and send it to me. I'm very serious about this. I can't tell you any details, but it might be connected to the fact that I got lost at the Harrods department store in London when I was a kid. I was only five years old and I waited for three hours for my parents to collect me from lost and found. I still have a trauma from this experience and my psychoanalyst says that any similar experience could trigger a paraplectic dactylonomy which is, in a way, similar to epileptic spasms of the lower maritorious abstracticus.
So please, my friend, I can not travel without this reassurance, as I will break into a cold sweat at the mere thought of arriving at a strange place with no one to take care of me.
Also, I will be carrying a large amount of cash (30.000$ to cover any unexpected expenditure. A fact that doesn't help easing my mind, if you know what I mean!
So please take that into consideration and advise them (the security company) of this special problem of mine. I don't want to do it myself, because it somewhat embarrasses me.
Take care!

Your friend

Lad Hunter

Your message was received with great understanding and I am sorry for your past ordeal in harrolds Departments London although that was then.

Now about your concern in who will be peaking you in the airport while arriving in london, that will be done amicably because this transaction has been perfected to the utmost level of it; and the documents will be sent to you ASAP because the little problem is the scaning machine which has been put in order, so expect it any moment from now.

Thanks for the money you decide to take to london as that shows your encouragement to help our client secure her consignment without further delays and this is exactly what she needs for her consignment to be in good hands and possibly go into the investment plans asap.

I promise you the documents today and probably your trip will be in the next 42Hours GMT.

Upon receipt of the documents urgently call me on my private phone: 234- 80-33309190 or my Home phone number: 234- 1- 775-7731 as soon as you receive this urgent message and send me your flight schedule so that our client will be at rest over here together with her entire family because this transaction has been her long time dream to come through.

I thank you once again My good friend and God bless,

Best regards,

LADISLAV HUNTER

Dear James,

I have bad news. I have been told by my doctor today that I have to undergo urgent surgery. The problem is an old shrapnel wound I am still suffering from. The splinter it threatening to punctuate my left lung. It's a souvenir from my tour of duty at Da Nang in Vietnam when me and Strawberry got lost and ambushed on a night patrol. Charly had us surrounded and my weapon jammed while Strawberry was still cappin' them VC until he ran outta ammo. That's when I whipped out my chopsticks. Ten seconds later, three VC were dead. Then that mortar granade struck a tree only fifteen feet away. The next thing I remember is waking up at the military hospital with the buttugly hairyass nurse giving me an enema. Strawberry didn't make it. Still, things could have been worse if I didn't have a third degree Iguanodon in Fok Yu Kung Fu. I owe my life to my late grandmaster Yu Suk Man. If it wasn't for him, I would have been toast. Anyway, This means that I'll be in hospital for the next three or four days. So please be patient if you don't hear anything from me until then.

Bilbo Baggins enters the stage


BILBO BAGGINS

Hello Mrs. Abacha,

I think you know who I am as Lad has told me about you and also mentioned me in his emails to you, I believe. However, bear with him as he is undergoing some serious surgery and he needs all the support he can get from his friends right now. He told me about how much he is determined to help you. I have, as he told you I would, contacted my publisher and he provided me with a special edition of the book I wrote about Lad. The title is "There and Back Again". I attached a scan of the cover and will send you the copy signed by Mr. Hunter as soon as his current condition improves and I get to visit him at the hospital. He is really fond of you, you know?
There still is this issue that stands in the way of him travelling to London, however. I think he understated the whole issue when telling the lawyer about it, because it embarrasses him, but he will under no circumstance be able to travel to London without seeing a picture of the person who is going to pick him up with a sign with his name on it. I know this might sound strange to you, but it is a psychological problem he's had since his early childhood. He tried to tell the lawyer, Barrister Obi, about it, but I think Barrister Obi doesn't understand.
Lad had his things packed and the money to meet any expenses for claiming the consignment ready (even though I think 30,000US$ is a little too much), when the doctor told him about the severe state he is in. Anyways, he left the money with me and I'm expected to pass it back to him when he is released from the clinic. He will be ready to travel as soon as that moment arrives. If he hasn't seen the picture of the person picking him up, he won't travel. I'm 100% sure of this, even though I know how much he likes you and how much he is willing to help you out. Please speak to the barrister and make this very well understood.

Warm Regards

Bilbo Baggins

DEAR BILLBO:
I RECIVED YOUR MAIL AND ALL THE CONTENT ARE DULLY NOTED. I AM VERY SORRY TO HEAR THAT MY DEARST IS IN SICK BED, MAY ALL MIGHTY ALLAH BE WITH HIM.
I TRUST HIM AND I CAN NOT WORK WITH ANY BODY I AM A WIDOW: THIS FUND IS MY FAMILY TRESURE I CAN NOT DICURSED FUTHER TO YO UNTILL I HEAR FROM MY DEARST LAD. CAN YOU JUST TELL ME WHEN HE WILL BE FREE FROMTHE HOSIPITAL. I AM WORRIED TO HEAR FROM HIM.
WATING TO HEAR FROM YOU AS AS YOU RECIVED THIS EMAIL.
MRS MARIAM HAJIA ABACHA

BILBO BAGGINS

My dear Mariam,
please do not worry about Mr. Hunter. He's going to be released from hospital on tuesday as the surgery went quite well! They were able to remove the shrapnel that was threatening to punctuate his lung. He will probably be able to travel before the weekend and I have already arranged with him to pass the money back, as he felt uncomfortable at the thought of taking the 30,000$ to the hospital as you know and gave the 30 grand to me. Still, what are you going to do about the picture issue. It should be very easy to do. Just get anyone to take a picture of himself holding up that damn sign with "Mr. Lad Hunter" written on it and he'll be fine with travelling. It doesn't even matter if it's the same person that picks him up (don't tell him I told you!), but at least that will reassure him and he will go.
I have to go now. I have to check on my nephew Frodo who's probably out in the woods with his pal Samwise and they are up to no good, I'm sure.
Warmest regards
Bilbo Baggins


BAR. JAMES OBI ESQ.

Ladislav Hunter

Barr. James Obi ESQ.


"MARIAM ABACHA"

Dear Baggins,
Thank you very much for your email. I feel sympathetic over the situation of Mr Lad.
I have instructed my lawyer to update the security firm concerning the picture aspect, so the picture would not be a problem.
I pray seriously that he should be able to conclude this transaction this week.
I am awating to hear more information as soon as he recovers and is discharged from the hospital.
I am awating your swift reply.
Remain blessed and best regard's,
Hajia Mariam Abacha

BILBO BAGGINS

Dear Mrs. Mariam,
I am sorry that I didn't respond right away, as I spent last night at Elrond's house, who is an old friend of mine. We talked about the days of old and had a merry good time and one or two brandies while blowing smoke rings into the night sky.
I have good news! Mr. Hunter is going to be released from Hospital tommorrow afternoon, and the doctor says he is ok to travel on friday. If that is a problem (because of the security company being closed over the weekend and such), please inform me and we will delay his travels until the beginning of next week. Please remember to send the requested picture to Lad directly, as he is so excited about going to London to complete this transaction and this, as I told you is the only issue that stands in the way of him doing so right now. He asked me if I think that he should buy a present to send to you, and I said that I don't know. So if you can think of anything you'd like - a watch, a laptop computer, a cellphone - please let me know and I'll give him a hint. You are really a sympathetic lady and I enjoy communicating with you, even though I don't really know you.
I'll take care of Lad's travel schedule and will let you and him know the details as soon as you confirm that you'd like him to travel this friday.
My regards to you and all your family
Your servant
Bilbo Baggins of the Shire

BILBO BAGGINS

Dear Mariam,
it's a pleasure for me to provide my best friend Lad with any support he could possibly need. I have contacted my travel agent who will figure out the most convenient schedule for Lad to travel. Lad should arrive in London on saturday and I will update you on the details as soon as my travel agent contacts me tomorrow (wednesday) morning. All that needs to be taken care of on your side is sending the picture to Lad and the pickup from the airport, which is most likely going to be Heathrow. As I take care of my (and Lad's) part in concluding this business, make sure you take care of yours and we will all be happy and a little wealthier soon, as Lad has offered me 5% of his share, which I find very generous, but he's my best friend after all.
Take good care and God bless you and all the Abachas around the world. Your humble servant
Bilbo Baggins of the Shire


LADISLAV HUNTER

My sweet princess,

I'll contact Bilbo about the details of my flight schedule, which I asked him to take care of. As soon as I now the details I will inform you, which should be tomorrow before noon.
Take care my beloved lady...

This is soon over and you'll get to meet the real Lad in person.
Your servant as always
Bilbo Baggins


LADISLAV HUNTER

Dearest Mariam,
have you received Bilbos message with my travelling details? I am very excited. After this deal is concluded, I want to come down to Afreaka to meet you in person. Do you want me to bring that laptop computer on that occasion or do you want me to send it before? I hope it's safe to send such valuable goods to Afreaka as I heard that there are quite a lot of scammers and crooks down there. Anyway, I bought you a brandnew Dell Latitude laptop and only need to know how to get it to you.
Has Moose-T (Is it ok if i call your son by that nickname?) taken care of the picture yet? Please keep me informed. As soon as the picture arrives, I'll pack my bags.
Love
The Lad Hunter

LADISLAV HUNTER

Atten: Ladislav Hunter;

Sir.

Find enclosed the attached picture requested by you before you make the trip to london as I can inform my client Dr. Hajia Mariam Abacha that nothing is holding you now for the trip.

Your flight schedule was received in clear note and I await your call from the Heathrow Airport upon your arrival in London for the cliams of your consignment from the security company and my number remains: 234- 80- 3330- 9190.

Best of luck,

Bar.James Obi

The Pickup Artist!



LADISLAV HUNTER

My dear James,

as you said, nothing stands in the way of me taking the plane to Heathrow on Friday. I am very excited about all of this. Please, make sure the person is there to pick me up. Have you arranged a hotel for me yet, because if you haven't Bilbo will take care of that. He is an organizing wizard, especially when he gets a hand from Gandalf. He is very focused on helping me with this and you can trust him 100%. Are you going to be in London? I guess not, as you're probably to busy in Nigeria. Nevertheless, I would like to meet you in person so we could wine and dine and have all the fun possible. Maybe this can be arranged when I come to Nigeria to meet my sweet Mariam. Please don't tell her yet, but besides the Laptop I have also bought a 24K gold necklace with diamonds and a cartier watch for her, but it's going to be a surprise! By the way, thanks a lot for the photo - I feel much better now!

Your partner and friend

Lad Hunter


BAR. JAMES OBI ESQ.

Atten: Ladislav Hunter,
Thanks very much for your message and I am happy to note that nothing will stop you from moving to London on friday, I am sorry and I am happy to understand that you know my tight schedule here as a lawyer though I will not be coming to London but I will in tyurn be sending my Personal Assitance to be with you there and pls like I keep telling you shuld not in any account make the security compnay to know the true content of the very consignment because they are not aware of the content and furthermore the funds are coded which means you are the only person rightful to know the true content together with my Personal Assitance Mr. Hakeem Joseph, pls keep to this instructions.
Furthermore, you should make sure you move to London with the USD$30,000.00 because there are some small dummorage to be paid by you when you get to the office of the security company although a hotel has been bocked for you by my Personal Assistant and upon your arrival he will take you to the hotel where you will proceed to meet with the official of the security company for the cliam, pls I repeat your job is to pay them and have the consignment cliamed so that you will move together with my Personal Assistance to the USA where I will be joining you both for the disburesment and further investment of our client share in any viable project of your candid advice.
Thanks for the Gift bought for Dr.Hajia Mariam Abacha and I so glad for that indeed you are her real partner in progress; she will also like to speak with you immediately you arrive London through my phone number: 234- 803330- 9190 as she is earger to meet you in person but that will be you coming to Nigeria as she is under a house arrest and she can not make any trip out of her residence due to logistic reasons.
Be focused and adhere to all my instructions so that sky will be our limit at the end.
Best regards,
Bar.James Obi


LADISLAV HUNTER

Dear James,
I read your mail and everything was well understood. I will proceed exactly as you advise. By saturday evening, the working part of our deal will be almost concluded and we can commence with the fun part.
I should let you know that I have bought a personal gift for you as well as a symbol of respect for your professionalism and friendship. It's a Breitling Seamaster Chronograph, a rare and precious watch. Where would you like me to send it to? Do you want me to send it via DHL or UPS with the same shipment as the laptop for Mariam?
Please let me know.
Knowing you, I expect nothing less than perfect professionalism from your assistant as well and I appreciate your sending him to London to act as my legal advisor there.
Cross your fingers!
Your friend

Lad Hunter


The subject part of Mariams next mail read: "how soon". The rest was just a quote of Lad's previous mail to her... Is she being drugged?

LADISLAV HUNTER

Hello Mariam my darling,
I'm sorry, but your message contained no text, only the text of my previous mail to you, I'm afraid. Can you resend what you intended to write? Everything I receive from you is very important for me as you have become the center of my life.
I'm longing for your hot passionate embrace, my queen.
Bear with me during my trip to London.
Sweet kisses
Your Lad


LADISLAV HUNTER

My Darling,
I forgot! Survival 2003. The last message was from me also. I just forgot to put this codeword in!

BAR. JAMES OBI ESQ.

Atten: Ladislav Hunter;

Your recent mail beat my imaginations and I will never forget your kind of person with so much adorable gesture worthy of emulation, I am greatful to the gift bought for me and you can have it sent to the same Mailling Address with my client Dr.Hajia Mariam Abacha because it will be received by my personal secretary because I was informed by Mustapha that our chambers address will be needed for the receival of their Mothers gift bought by you for her and it should be by DHL.

You are requested to be a tight partner with Mr.Hakem Joseph because he wil be there guiding you on any area which you dont understand because I have on my own here informed him on what to do while been with you, you are also required to get back to the states imediately the consignment is cliamed together with him while I will join you both latter in two days interval.

You should also also rember to ADHERE to the instruction of the security company so that there wil not any raise of eye brow or red flag, and what is only required of you to is pay them and have the consignment cliamed and at the same time proceed to the airport and board your self with my personal assistant back to us.

Also rember to give me a joint call when you reach London with Mr.Hakeem Joseph so that I can speak with you both on what to do at the right time because if you make any mistakes they may open the consignment and when they find out it is money that was inside our client may stand the chance of loosing her hard earned money to the BRITISH GOVERNMENT.

I await your call and response,

Best regards,

Bar. James Obi

LADISLAV HUNTER

My beloved Mariam,
I wasn't able to reach your son Moose-T (survival 2003). I got a busy signal after the fifth digit and when I tried at a later time, there was a voice saying that "the person you are trying to reach is unavailable at present, please try again later." Please, have your son call me. From Nigeria it is: 009 44 70 920 30378. If I don't answer the phone, have him leave a message!
I love you!
Your stud

LADISLAV HUNTER

Hello James,
what you are saying sounds as if you are concerned about someone who might interfere with our business. Actually, I have noticed two guys that have been following me constantly for the past two days. Maybe that doesn't mean anything, but we better be on guard. I'll try to shake them off. Don't worry, saturday everything will be fine. I'll bring the 30,000$ to meet all the expenses like the demurrage fees.
Hope to talk to you soon.


BAR. JAMES OBI ESQ.

ATTN: LADISLAV HUNTER.
YES THAT CAN BE POSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE TO INTERFERE WITH OUR BUSINESS THAT IS WHY I CONSTANTLY WARN YOU TO KEEP IT WITH ABSOLUTELY CONFIDENTIAL,
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR EFFORT TOWARDS BRING THIS TRANSACTION TO A SUCCESSFUL END.
I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEAR FROM YOU ON SATURDAY.
THANKS.
BEST REGARDS.
BARR. JAMES OBI.

"MARIAM ABACHA"

I await your kind response sweet heart.
Best of love and luck,
Dr.Mariam Abacha


"MARIAM ABACHA"

Dear Bilbo Baggins,:
I just received an auto responder from my Love and Though the trough the content I was made to understand that all mails sent to him now should re-directed to you and that is why I reached you now to confirm if he is on his way to London??, as the message said that he is on his way to europe.
I also want to know why he failed to send me the Gift which he said he has bought for me?? though I would cherish receiving it if he has droped it with you you can see my lawyers mailing address and send it to me on his behalf, or you can confirm from him if you will send it or not.
Pls you should call my son MUSTAPHA on his number; 234- 80- 3400-889 immediately you receive this mail.
Thanks Bilbo for your profound courage with you, we appreciate it all but I said to you wait for the consignment to be cliamed and I will in turn instruct Lad to offer you some good thing ( unquote ).
Best wishes and pls inform Lad to call my son immediately he arrives london.
Dr.Mariam Abacha


BILBO BAGGINS

Dearest Mariam,

I was forwarded your mail by the autoresponder function which Lad programmed for his email account before travelling.
I am wondering why you write him this email as you should know that he is in mid-air right now and cannot receive your mail until he gets back. I haven't talked to him since yesterday, but I believe everything is going according to plan, as he reassured me. Please, be patient, as Lad is doing his very best for you. He loves you.
Concerning the laptop, he left it with me, along with a beautiful watch for barrister Obi, which must have cost a fortune! Also there is another present for you, but I'm not telling you what it is just yet, so I don't spoil your anticipation. I can tell you this much: It is much more precious than the other things in the package. Don't worry, I'll send it well insured with DHL this afternoon. DHL should be here to pick it up any minute now.
The name of the recipient is:

NAME: JOHN EKWEGH
ADDRESS: 31 IJAGEMI STREET, OFF POPOOLA BUSTOP, BARIGA, LAGOS- STATE NIGERIA,
WEST AFRICA.

is the above information correct?
Lad told me that "Moose-T" (Lad informed me of the codename) should call him under the number he gave you, once Lad gets to London.
Be strong. Lad Hunter will help you!

Warmest regards from your ever humble servant

Bilbo Baggins


"MARIAM ABACHA"

Dear Bilbo,
ok I now know that lad is on on the air to london, I am at rest now.
The mailing address of my lawyer which you send to me was correct and you can go ahead and send the gift and have the DHL TRACKING NUMBER sent to me immediately it has been sent.
I also want to confirm how Lad got the London number, did he bought it in america?, I need clear answer my Dear Bilbo

I know that Lad loves e and I do Love hi with all my heart and I look forth to seeig you with him when you both will be visiting me.
I await the DHL information.
Best wishes,
Dr.Mariam Abacha


The Abacha boy formerly known as "faxman" (Tabfkaf) leaves a (pretty expensive) message on Lad's voice-box:

"MARIAM ABACHA"

Dear Bilbo,
Please update me if you have sent my gift thanks:
Rgards
Mariam Hajia Abacha.


BILBO BAGGINS

Mariam,

I am somewhat disturbed that you seem more worried about the gifts than about Lad's well-being. You have mailed me three or four times in the last couple of hours and only seem to be worried about the gifts getting to you. Is there something wrong with this deal? Why is it, that you are so much after such a material thing. Soon you are going to have millions and you can spend it on thousands of laptops. What is wrong? Are you not being sincere? Let me reassure you that, yes, I have sent it and, yes, there is a tracking number and, yes, I have a reciept that bears it.
Yet, however, DHL is a door-to-door delivery service and all you have to do is wait until someone knocks on the door and hands you the package, right? If that should not be the case, then, and only then, shall I use the tracking code to find out about the whereabouts of the package.
This is the regular procedure and I advise that we stick to what I say just once, as I certainly get the feeling that all Lad and I are good for is following orders. I shall discuss this issue with him at once as soon as he arrives in London, which should be in about 5 hours from now.
Don't get nervous, everything is gonna be ok, right?

Regards
Bilbo

Dear all,

Something terrible has happened. Lad is dead. He has been robbed and murdered. I can't tell you anything right now as I am overwhelmed with pain. Please see the attached newspaper article.

Bilbo



The Obituary!






BILBO BAGGINS

James,
I havenęt heard from you in two days, but assume everything is alright. Are your fellow countrymen on strike again? Please let me know asap what is happening. Please tell Mariam I said "hello". Regarding Ladęs will, I have passed your contact information over to Ladęs attorney. He will most likely contact you in the next few days.
Your friend
Bilbo


BAR. JAMES OBI ESQ.

Thanks for your update, Well the reason why you haven't heard from me in the past two day now is not because of any strike, after all we are not having one at the moment. My client Dr Mrs Mariam is still in pains crying each time she remember's Mr LAD'S death.
Meanwhile,we are working out with the security company to move this consignment to their sister company in South Africa or Ghana because of security reasons. They have accepted to do that in favour of Mr Hunter who was the new beneficiary of the consignment before his death,i Believe you know that my client made the change of ownership in Mr LAD HUNTER'S name through the power of attorney we send to the security company instructing them for the change which was carried out in that order.
furthermore, Please note that my client will like you to be next of kins of this consignment since Mr LAD is no more living. This became necessary after 4 HOURS close meeting of my client family it was agreed that you will be the person that can help us out since you are the trusted close friend of Mr LAD and also that you are the only person that know 's about these transaction.Please let us know if you can help my client Mrs Mariam to claim this money from the security company so that i will send to you the new location of this boxes containing the funds so that you can reach them.
Finally,regarding the LAD'S WILL i am still looking forward to receive the will unbehalf of my client. by next week ,immediately he contacts me i will inform you.
Thanks and have a nice weekend.

DR. KARL-EMMANUEL HODENLOS

[ScamONote - we are told the Doctor's last name translates roughly as scrotumless.]

Dear Dr.Obi,

please allow me to introduce myself. I am Dr.Karl-Emmanuell Hodenlos of Bollocks, Hodenlos & Schleim, legal counsels to the late Ladislav Hunter. Mr.Baggins kindly passed me your email address.

Let me first express my deepest condolences to you and Mrs.Abacha. It is a terrible tragedy that happened a few days ago and we all will miss the late Ladislav Hunter. As you know he was a very nice man and will be missed.

Dear colleague, it is my duty to inform you that the name of your client Mrs. Mariam Hajia Abacha is on the list of persons who are mentioned in Ladislav Hunter's latest testament he made shortly before his surgery a few weeks ago. In a matter of fact, Mrs.Abacha was provided for quite generously with a significant sum and a piece of real estate.

For legal reasons I can't give you more details before the official opening of the testament which will happen on the 31st of July here. From what I know it is currently not possible for Mrs.Abacha to leave the country so somebody else has to attend the opening in her name.

If it is impossible for you to employ a representative to the proceeding then I could of course act on your and your client's behalf. Under those circumstances I'd need a power of attorney signed by you and Mrs.Abacha and equipped with your official seals and stamps, together with a copy of your international passport to prove your identity for the court's testament registry.

Please contact me soon so that we can discuss the further handling. You can reach me either under this email address, by fax +49-30-11833 or by telephone +49-30-11836. In case you are wondering about these German numbers let me tell you that Bollocks, Hodenlos & Schleim is an international law firm with offices in Los Angeles, London and Berlin. During the current vacation of the Senior I am taking care of the personal-related issues including reading of the will from the Berlin office. Mr.Hunter's testament is registered with the court here too.

I'd like to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Dr.Karl-Emmanuel Hodenlos

Lads last will:

Note: It has never been sent to them as they didnęt comply with the requirements of Dr. Jur. Karl Emmanuel Hodenlos of Bollocks, Hodenlos & Schleim. I still think itęs worth taking a look at, as Dr. Hodenlos put a great effort into setting up these 100% hitch free documents.

Dr. Karl-Emmanuel Hodenlos

Your recenmt to our chambers was quite noted and the content Understood with great intent.
Do note that I tried to call your number which was given to me by your humble self and was told not in service, so pls do check your local service provider and know if your line is been monitored or out of network.

I wish to inform you outrightly that my passport has expired and I just put an application to receive a fresh one which will be furnished to you as soon as i obtain it from the Nigeria Immigration services, do bear with me over this development as I will honestly prove my true nature and gesture to your self.

Finaly, I have started Drafting the Required Power of attorney which will enable your firm stand for our client Dr.Mariam Abacha for the "Will" that will be read by 31th of july this year for further proceeding of the cliam by your firm on her behalf and further invest her own share of the funds in any lucrative project of your candid advice.

I await your urgent repsponse in acknowledgment of this message or call me on my private cell phone: 234- 80- 3330- 9190

In anticipation of your candid response and call ASAP.

Best regards,

Barr. James Obi
For The family..


DR. KARL-EMMANUEL HODENLOS

Dear colleague,

Thank you for your email. In fact I was waiting the whole day for a call from you but of course without success. After receiving your message I tried to call you under the number you gave me but already after the country prefix I've got an error message indicating problems somewhere between Europe and Africa. Please try it again tomorrow.

Meanwhile I will give you a more detailed description of the modalities regarding the opening of Mr.Hunter's last will. It will take place on the 31st of July at 10am at the Amstsgericht Berlin-Charlottenburg where his testament has been registered by me. Several of the beneficiaries will appear in person for the opening, other send a legal representative and some will be represented by me.

I have learned from Mr.Baggins that Mrs.Abacha is currently in a rather unfortunate relationship with the Nigerian government. I think it would be wise under those circumstances to conceal her involvement as much as possible to protect the safety of your client. Therefore I'd advise you to set up two power of attorney forms. In the first you let Mrs.Abacha state that you are acting on her behalf and in the second you transfer this area of your competence to me. It is a very simple but effective method to withheld Mrs.Abacha's name from the final property transfer because those documents will only bear your name then.

An international passport or a valid national identification is required for the power of attorney. In certain cases a driver's license is also possible to be used. For example, many people in the United States don't have a passport and just use their driver's license for identification purposes. Because you will probably come over to Germany in the future for the final stages of the heritage transaction a passport is advised.

Please send me the PoA forms as soon as possible before the 31st. If you don't have your new passport until then please add a copy of your national ID. My address for the second form is the following:

Dr.Karl-Emmanuell Hodenlos
Sophien-Friedhof II, Bergstr. 29, 10115 Berlin, Germany

To speed up the negotiation and avoid additional delay by a translation you can copy the following German standard paragraph to your PoA. It states that I will act on the behalf of you and your client in this case.

"Hiermit übertrage ich, Dr.James Obi, meine gesamten geschäftlichen Befugnisse auf Dr.Karl-Emmanuell Hodenlos von jetzt an auf immerdar. Er hat damit vollen Zugriff auf mein Eigentum und das aller meiner Klienten, egal wer und wo, und kann damit komplett nach seinem Willen verfahren. Diese Vollmacht kann nicht widerrufen werde. Ferner erkläre ich, mich jetzt im absoluten Vollbesitz meiner geistigen Kräfte zu befinden, stocknüchtern zu sein und dies freiwillig zu schreiben."

I'd be glad to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Dr.Karl-Emmanuell Hodenlos

My dear best good friend James!
I am so happy about the fact that I am allowed to carry out this transaction as my friend, no, my BROTHER as I should call him after all he has done for me, Lad, would have most certainly wanted me to do!
Since I have learned, that the chambers of Mr. Bollocks OęSteele have instructed their european branch, Bollocks, Hodenlos & Schleim to arrange the opening of will of our dear Lad, I feel a great deal of relief, as they have an untarnished reputation of being amongst the best legal advisors to be found anywhere in Europe.
Please, call me as soon as possible. My UK number being: 00 44 7092032117 If you donęt catch me, most likely I am at the nearby River Kwai with Tom Bombadil fishing for largemouth basses and Ichtyosaurs. Leave a message with all the detailed information I will need on my answering machine if need be.
Humbly
Bilbo Baggins of the Shire

Note: At this time they might have paid Scamorama a visit or googled for “Bilbo Baggins, because they went quiet for good.

DR. KARL-EMMANUEL HODENLOS

Dear colleague,

I am still waiting for you to send the two PoA forms and your and your client's identification. Without these documents I cannot send you copies of the relevant pages of Mr.Hunter's testament and tell you more details of it. "Auri sacra fames", you understand.

As I already wrote you, the opening of the testament is scheduled for 10am today. And following the rule of "literae non erubescent" Mrs.Abacha would have to be excluded today and her part postponed until next week when I hopefully can present the necessary power of attorney (PoA) and identification to the judge.

If you don't want to cause any further delay please finish the documents, add the German paragraph I sent you and email them together with the passports/IDs mentioned in my previous mail to this address. There are still more than three hours left and it should be in the best interest of your client to complete this heritage transaction as fast as possible.

Otherwise I'll have to get a new appointment with the judge next week again to register your client's heritage claim.

Sincerely,

Dr.Karl-Emmanuell Hodenlos


BILBO BAGGINS

Dear James,
what has happened? I havenęt heard from you in three days! Is everything alright? I would like to know how we will proceed. I have just returned from an appointment with Dr. Smaug and he told me that I couldnęt travel at the moment, due to my high blood pressure. So if I am required to travel soon, I might have to send my nephew Frodo. Heęs a bit dim, but a good guy. He wouldnęt know any details, Ięd just give him the money and send him to Ghana to pay for the demurrage fees and to pick up the consignment. He would not open the boxes and will never know what is inside them.
Please, urgently inform me if the consignment has arrived in Ghana yet.
Your friend
Bilbo
PS: I want to inform you that I will change my email provider, as I am not satisfied with this one anymore. They have too much technical downtime, as I wasnęt able to access my account for almost two days. Can you recommend a good provider? Thanks.


DR. KARL-EMMANUEL HODENLOS

Dear Dr.Obi,

I am still waiting to receive the requested documents from you so that I can quickly let the court release Mr.Hunter's testament on your client's behalf. Please acknowledge the receipt of this email. Be advised that I'll travel to Moscow next week to establish an office there in cooperation with Mr.Igor Fuseljeff and thus wont be able to work on your case then. I'd be very pleased if I could do it this week.

Sincerely,

Dr.Karl-Emmanuell Hodenlos


BILBO BAGGINS

Dear James,
I am sincerely worried about you and Mariam. I hope the authorities donęt trouble you. I donęt see any other reason for you not getting back to me. I spoke with Ladęs lawyer who is still waiting for the PoA from you. If I donęt hear from you in the next three days, I will hire a group of Gurkha mercenaries to search for you and the money. I still have very good contacts in the military from the time when I was serving in her Majesties 7th Royal Gurkha Brigade. I will bring Oin, Gloin, Balin, Thorin, Gandalf and the rest of the bunch! "KAPHAR HUNNU BHANDA MORNU RAMRO CHHAA!" This is Gurkha and means: "It is better to die than live a coward."
Donęt worry! Everything will be fine! I will bring my trustworthy band of Gurkha with sharpened Sirupati Kukri's with me on this expedition at the end of which you and Mariam shall walk freely again.
If I donęt hear from you until then, my party will set off in the early morning hours four days from now. Because I will be bringing two fully equipped heavy machine gunners, we will not be able to enter the country by normal means of transportation, but parachute out of a small turbo prop just outside the capital. We will then split into two groups and circle the town halfways in opposing directions. On wednesday 130203, 0600 dildo time, we will launch a surprise attack on the capital from two different sides, ultimately driving a wedge between the defenders. In a swift strike we will take the administration district and seize control over the government. Then we will constitute you as the new head of state. What you think? Sounds good? Ok! Let me hear from you or else WE ARE GOING IN!
Your brother in arms
Bilbo
