[Hullo? What? No Part II before Part III, you said? Are you nuts? If yes, please see below]

This comes from the incredible Le Page Family, who between them drive Lads to distraction. In the last episode (LIBERTÉ, EGALITÉ, SCAMOSITÉ), "M. Sabastine's" time was completely and beautifully wasted. But did he give up? No!

Bonjour Postmaster,
Our Lads never give up. But you knew it.
Today 1rst of October is a special day: Independence Day in Nigeria!
As you have published my first escarmouches with "Sabastine" on our national feast July 14, I have thought it was the right time to send you the continuation.

The story looks surrealistic but I take the oath that all mails from the scammer(s) are true. I have just edited them : 1) All caps to lower caps 2) Paragraph breaks inserted for easier reading.

Subject : Everything OK

Dear Mr. Sabastine,

I have emailed your dear son yesterday but alas received no reply. I do hope he did not forget to tell you I have sent him an email. Anyway, if he forgot please don’t be mad against him, he is so young.

I had to see my lawyer several times yesterday and today, plus the insurance company, the police again, the psychiatrists at the hospital and the tax administration.

Everything should be all right now and since Lepage was officially pronounced mad by the Mental Health Emergency High Court I can inherit his money and all his other belongings, including the castle of SC AMORAMA and the holyday house in Spain, and he and I are automatically divorced.

I have just to pay the psychiatric hospital EUR 3000 a month to take care of Lepage but it’s not a problem. Also, the stirring committee of SC AMORAMA shall appoint me President because I’m the main shareholder.

I have still a huge pile of official papers to sign but I can see the end of the tunnel.

I know you are very busy and I don’t want to disturb you. Thus please tell me when I should fly to Lagos next week (I mean the most convenient date for you and your son).

After all those problems with Lepage I would like to stay in Nigeria for a couple of weeks. I would like to relax and to rest looking at the birds (I love birds) and learning new cooking recipes. Maybe your good wife would teach me some?

But first thing when I’m in Lagos, we’ll arrange to register SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LTD and to transfer the money in the right bank account. I will take some rest when all that is done.

IMPORTANT. You wrote “be warned ,you should not talk or write to my lawyer because I am arranging another good lawyer for you”. Why? Who is the new lawyer?

Looking forward to meet you “in real life”.

Best Regards

Adele Bow (no more Lepage at last!).

Dear Garbrelle, my little bird,

I’m still tunder ssshock after have been readened your mail. I’m as a pink as an elephant the kind you see when you’ve got a bit hard on the Champagne. Oh Garbrelle you’re to appealing. I fancy you.

If you were here right know I'd show you at once what I can do to a Lad of Lagos like you.

I’d put you immediately in my jail of love from where nobody never escaped. I’d fine you very high and you’d have to pay back with kisses. You’d have to break in tiny bits every stone on the Road of Love before you could reach me and you’d be hanged a couple of times in the meanwhile just to harden you. When in my room at last I’d put chains around your neck, wrists and ankles and use a lash and hot wax to soften your skin. I’m like that. I’m sure you’d love.

But please, please, my exorotic bird with multicolored tail, don’t call me Mummy. Here, you know, women cannot marry their sons (and vice-versa).

I want to respect your family’s tradition and please tell me how I should dress for the wedding. I have a swim suit but maybe it’s not really adequate? Or should I bring my Christian Dior night gown? Or the Cacharel one?

Also what kind of presents should I bring? French food? If yes please tell me if you like hot Camembert in its crust, small green sand snails cooked in Burgundy sparkling wine or the piece of ageing veal in oyster sauce (all are my specialties).

It’s up to you to arrange for the weddings and I’m sorry I cannot help you. So feel free to tell me when I should arrive at Lagos airport so that you have time to arrange for the ceremony, the dinner, the traditional dances, the honey moon etc. I should get the visa from the Nigeria embassy tomorrow and I’ll have just to book the flight, pack and fly.

Please reply soon and do not forget to tell your father about this mail (not the private bit, it’s just for you and me).

I forgot : I’d love to hear you voice but I never never give my telephone number by email. You never know where an email goes. I’m a lonely woman now and I don’t want to be harassed night and day by malicious people and spammers. I have your good father’s telephone number and will ring if needed.


Your Adele Bow soon Martins

Then i do not think i will have th opportunity, to travel or order for my french suit from Italy,please, do me a favour for my suit and shoes. a santchoes-swede black shoes.

There is this wrist watch of a product of RADO OR ROLEX BRANDS. i would want them.

But there is every need of nuts of different types. The nuts are my specialties too.

i will not fail to pass this mail to our daddy right now.

I know he will be pleased. i would start sending accross invitations to friends and associates, but i would want to first of all hear the good news that you have procured your visa first. The visa is the first step to the clear view of the date.

You know that this is going to be an August wedding in the month of October?
How do you want the publicity?is it international or locally?Well,i hope for a better directives from God. I will like to stop so far to wait for your actions. Actions speaks better than words.

Object: Why nuts?

Dear Gabrelle,

I still don’t understand why you want me to bring nuts down there.

If I’m quite fluent in English, it’s because I had an Irish child-minder. She was from County Donegal and taught me English and some bits of Irish as well, for example póg mo thóin, meaning a warm welcome.

But it’s not the right time to evoke old memories. I’ll tell you more about my private life and I’ll send you a nice photo when I’m sure you’re not playing with my heart.

As you know “to be nuts” means “to be crazy”. I you do think I’m crazy please tell it right now and I’ll forget our romance at once.

I have suffered a lot with Lepage and I don’t want to suffer any more with another man even if he’s gorgeous.

So please explain what you mean by “nuts”. I’m very sad with you calling me nut and ready to cancel everything.


[póg mo thóin : kiss my a*s in Irish. Hence the name of the “Pogue Mahon” Irish band]

Adele (Mme. Lepage)  


Subject: I'm sad

Dear Mr Sabastine,

Is your son really serious? You and I know how those youngsters may behave but as you will, or should, be soon my Father in Law I must tell you your son called me “nuts”. As you are a mature man please tell me if this is a normal joke to tell a bride in your country.

I really am sad that Gabrelle thinks I’m nuts and I’ve wept for that. Does he really want a crazy wife?

I should say that the recent story with Lepage left me a bit depressed. Please give me good news and tell me your son is not that bad. I’m so sad that I’m ready to cancel our transaction, my flight to Nigeria and everything.

my sweet heart,
i am sad to read your mail . why must you take such rather an expensive joke soi serious. as an american man can jokenly call his wife a bitch on a sweet romantic day
[Hey, American friends, forgive him, he's nuts!], so i tried to jokenly and romantically call you, "a nut" meanwhile do not forget that something started it, the coming down to nigeria with some sweet nuts(that is a friuit of an oil bean)or simply a fruit depending the angle you emphatically analyse it.

i am a born english analysit of words,
[LOL ! Me too, Dear Colleague, me too. Agent Ilichy Miracsky was my English Teacher and my Master in English "analysit".
Any relation with you being an a*s hole? ]

i can slightly make mistakes in written english when i am wriiting in a hurry, but that does not mean that i do not know my wordings. i am of a british colony and that has imbibed the queens english in me. your back graound of irish english still made you a wonderful match to me as my wife to be.
[MiLady Agatha, by Jove, if I can speak so, excuse my French, they are still British colonies! And the Queen has "imbibed" him! MiLady please do something for them!]

my angel, my father has been making a lot of trouble with me since yesterday because i called you a nut, my mumy was not left out in this trouble. they have not allowed me to have my peace both on telephone and on the intercom in my room. could you believe that they summoned me this morning to caution me on this rude word i used on you. though, he has left for abuja, the national capital territory, where he went to attend our national independent celebration. he is one of the two men invited by the presidency to represent the nigerian national petrroleum corporation(nnpc)in today's event in the national civic centre,abuja. he ask me to tell you that he will mail you from abuja after the ceremony proper, before the galanite.
[I first thought that a galanite was a kind of moon stone related to granite but after hours of search I have found it could be a Gala Night]

meanwhile, please, try to send to me your private telephone number and the picture i was asking for, you know the ones i have here with me are those ones you
sent to my dady, they are not full pictures.

please, sweet heart, i am very sorry and i know for sure that you will forgive me for this. i promised that you will find the best life in our marriage. just come and taste.
[To taste? Berk! Berk Berk and Berk ! Spit Spit and Spit!]

well, i think i am once again tasked, to tell you that i really love you from the root of my heart. i mean everything i have told you. inspite of my young age which you are capitalising, i think my dady will tell you trully that i am not so young in thought of matters. if i am still a juvenille, i do not think my dady willallow most of his business for me to handle on his behalf.

well, i think i have started almost all the preparations for our wedding and all i need to do in
welcoming you to this home is almost ready. the entourage that will pick you up from the airport are well arranged and informed.the only thing we actually need right now is to have your flight schedulle and fix the date of the wedding.

i am very anxious to meet you here in my country. and I promised the warmest and best of a choice of marriage you have made to marry me and i say once again, you will not regrete it. you have suffered so much in the hands of lepage and you really need a rest with a kind of my type.

please, i need your flight schedulle, my love, and my babe!!!!!!!!!.
i wish you happy indenpence of your future country.,

Subject : OK, let's forget it!

Dear Gabrelle, my little nut!

Thanks a million for your apologies. I forgive you. Let’s forget that.

After all, a nut is nice. Chestnut! Peanut! Hazelnut! Coconut! Looks like a kid’s song.

And you were right anyway. I’m probably a nut because you will have to break the hard shell to find the delicious almond inside.

Congratulations for your national day in Nigeria.

To be independent is great. It means you have no more to rely on other people’s presents or gifts to make money but only on your work. “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread” . It means that you must not be lazzy just waiting that gold and silver (and nuts) fall from the sky like rain in Spring.

Gabrelle, I’m sorry but I was so angry with you that I have canceled my flight to Nigeria. No the tickets but the dates. I have telephoned the travel agency and they said I could fly to your country Thursday next week but I’m afraid it would be too early for you Dear Mum and Dad to organize. Please tell them to keep all things at a reasonable level.

You asked me for a photo in full. Please find one attached. It was during our last holyday in Spain. From left to right: Lepage (you can cut him off!), me (blue dress), Miguel our neighbor and his daughter and Conchita, the local girl who helps me to clean the house.

Also I repeat I want to bring some presents. You told about a Rolex wrist watch. Which one?

Would you go to the Rolex site and take you pick? (be reasonable of course). Just send me the exact reference and description of the watch plus a photo of it (download it from the Rolex site).

What should I bring for your Dad? Your Mum?
I have still millions of questions!

I must do a to-do list. I’ll write more tomorrow.

Kindly yours,
Your Adele

Subject : Please forgive your son

Dear Mr Sabastine,

Gabrelle sent me a very kind email and I’ve forgiven him for having called me “nut”. Probably it was differences of language and meanings we attach to words.

Receive my sincere congratulations for your National Day. I do hope you had good time in Abuja.

Here in France the 14th of July is our national day. It’s a special souvenir for me because last 14th of July I’ve started to write a novel – in English, yes! It’s not finished yet but I’ll give you the manuscript as soon as I’ve written “THE END”! It’s a love story between a Lad and a Lady. They first meet on the Internet. The Lad lives in Africa and the Lady in France. They are in love but soon realize it will be hard to meet in real life. But the Lad finds an interesting way to make money and thus to buy the plane ticket for France. I won’t say more, I don’t want to spoil your surprise when you read my book. Of course, you have understood that the story background comes from your early email exchanges with Lepage. I’ve written many pages when I was in the hospital in Spain just after Lepage tried to kill me by emptying the swimming pool. The only thing I can say is that I will write “For Martin Sabastine with Love” on the first page.

I’ve emailed your son that I could fly to your country Thursday next week. Is it not too early for you?

Kind regards

October 14 - it continues!

My Adele,

How are you today? Hope all is well with you. How about the health condition of Lepage?

please, make sure you send the monthly dependable fee so that they will be taken care of him well over there.

Well, my daughter-in-law, i have recieved yoru compalaint and i have really called the attention of my son, he is really really very sorry for such a word he used on you. He said that he never meant any harm to such effect.

Well, my son is such a well matured and responsible man and he is not a radical . i am very keen and quite sure that you two will leave with happiness and full joy of marriage. After all you are still a very young lady who need to leave in a comfortable lively home of peace with utmost relaxation.You do not need to leave in such a home of Lepage.

If you are my direct biological daughter, i will not advise you to be in that home uptill this period. You have really tried for caring for the young man for quite a long time. I must have to tell you that sine the day i sighted my eyes on the identity card which you sent to me, i have really developed a sweet love and kindness to you.

My son's interest to marry you has come to be a blessing coming to my home and my family because, we met as busines partners and now, God has brought in another blessing, of marriage, this is a double blessing. Please, i will advise you to take it easy with him. He loves you and he has started arrangiing on his own way your wedding with him. and i will surprise you people with my own preparation. You will see different calibers of people in that mnarriage.I know you will be very much impressed with the whole settings.

[Calibers? Mark 7 16-inch/50-caliber gun?]

Well, i am not at my home in lagos right now. I am in my guest house at the federal Capital territory,Abuja.Today is my country's NATIONAL DAY. I was invited by the presidency to attenD the celebration occasion of the "INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION" This is the freedom and independence we faught and gained in october 1st,1960. It is really a memorable day. i will tell you how we made the indenpendence when you come to this country. I will be back to Lagos by tomorrow.

Have you recieced your visa from our High Commission?

Please, i apologise for my son.i will also beg for my leaving. i want to have a little rest before i leave for the galanite. you are really missing a lot of fun here, my daughter. i hope Gabrelle, has written to you an apology letter? please, forgive him and teach him.

Thank you and God bless you.
i am waiting for a good news.

I am glad you have forgiven me right now. Thatis what love is all about. I will be waiting for your lots of questions as you said you will ask me in your next mail to me.i hope you will ask me the kind of questions I can perfectly answer.

Please, i am also very happy that you have understood what a fruit nuts which i meant in my first mail. Please, they are very important to be presented in the occasion.

My dearest Gabrelle,

Thanks a million for the postal card and your lovely words.
Also thank your father for his kind words.

I could book this fly:
Départ : Jeu. 09 oct. 03
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL1230) - KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL587)
Départ : Charles De Gaulle (CDG) 10:15
Arrivée: urtala Muhammed (LOS) 17:55
Durée du vol: 8h40min

Tell me if it's OK for you and your Dearest Dad and Mums.
I'm sorry I can't write more. I still have to sign a huge pile of administrative forms following Lepage's illness. He's well, he's sleeping all the time but I must work! It's unfair.

Gabrelle my bird, attached is another picture of me as you requested.

Am I not too old for you? Sometimes I'm in doubt.

I've got just only one picture of you. It was during a family meeting with your Dad and Mum.

Please send me another photo of you. Like you I want to print it and have it pined up in my bedroom. I feel so lonely.

Sorry to be so tired. You'll refresh me next week!

Your Adele

I have called my father on his telephone that i have a good news for him as soon as i come back. Without wasting time, he predicted that you have sent a flight ittinery. it is a great prediction. did you write him about the flight ittinery?

well i wish ti tell you that the schedulle is very much ok for me. i will right now go back to my drawing board to draw the dates of the ceremonies. the wedding proper, the galanite and the friends-day. it will all come with one day interval. i will send to you all the information of the dates in my subsequent mail.

meanwhile, i am ready to give you the best refreshing you can think of. the best fun is awaiting for you. i wish you the best in your preparations.

Yourrrah yeepee yup.
Once again the bloody nurses have forget/otten/got to shut down their computer

Ah ah!

Tell me where you are with Adele my wife mine, nine, shine ah ahaha

Have you scammed her all the money she stolen me because she managed me to be pronounced ma ha ha mad?

Come on Sabastine come on. I am not mad.

It is just that extract of the Dumb Lad fish minute brain. I should not be but I did. Injected. Minute brain. Does not mean the Dumb Lad brain is fast in a minute but wee tiny. Ni! Ni ! We are the knights who say Ni!

Just to make me laugh and I need it badly tell me how much you have scammed her. Please. Please. Lease, leasing, mortgages and all that sort of things.

When I tell Adele you are a MUGU she says yes honey, of course darling, forget that, light of my life, everything is OK, take your pills. She takes me for a mad mad madaman my madam.

Ah aha. She does not know that I have opened the lid of the main sewage hole in the hospital garden. What I have seen under?

Millions, billions of Dumb Lads swimming in deep mud. Ahahaha. And I’ve seen you as well. Ohohoho.

I just could catch one with any disgusting bait on the hook. Open the skull. Extract the brain.

Adele (Mme. Lepage)  

[I was desperately looking for a good reason to delay Adele’s trip to Nigeria and to waste their time a little more then suddenly the radio said “Crude oil prices rise on plans for a general strike in OPEC member Nigeria”...]


Subject: We have to postpone!

My little bird,

Alas we have to postpone our weddings. I’ve received an email from my travel agency and they said a general strike is to begin in your country and close the air space. They sent me a quotation from a Nigerian newspaper:

From Chuks Okocha in Abuja and Chris Nwachuku in Lagos

Aviation workers acting on the auspices of the National Union of Transport Workers (NUATE) and Air Transport Service Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSAN) have vowed to suspend all operational services in the industry from Thursday October 9 in compliance with the directives of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Committee of Free Trade Union (CFTU).”

Just Thursday, oh, my dear Gabrelle, just Thursday October 9, our Thursday! I’m so sad. Imagine weddings during a general strike! No electricity, no food, no transports! It would be a catastrophe.

Please keep me informed about the situation in Nigeria so that I could book on another flight asap.

In the meanwhile I will keep shopping. Ok for the presents you asked for including the camscope recorder.

Please tell your good father he forgets last Lepage’s email. I don’t know what he could email. I telephoned the hospital and the nurse said Lepage probably exploited a moment where she was very busy with another patient to access her computer she had not the time to shut down. She promised to be more careful next time.

I want to see you soon my tropical bird. Please tell those nasty workmen they resume work asap. Love cannot wait. Love is far more precious that that sticky oil.

Your Adele

dear love,

i have heard you well. i had wanted to inform you about the strike, but we are still comtemplating that it will not work out as nlc wish.

my reason and ideology for this is that there is no way a strike will go on while a nation like this is hosting the whole africa on a african games.

well, adele, i will like to ask you some questions right now because i am suspecting some funny games on this transaction and the so called proposed marriage.

please, can you tell me the meaning of the word "mugu"?

what is the meaning of the name "adele"?

who is mr tony and what is mr tony to you?

i am hoping to hear from you soonest before i can mail you the piece of my mind.

yours ever,

gabrelle martins

[Just converted in lower cases; grammar and spelling are far better; probably a ‘senior executive’ of the scam team. Is Mr Tony is another scam baiter?]

Adele (Mme. Lepage)  


Subject : Is that a quiz???

I’ve not the time to play quiz you know and to answer your silly questions.

And you’re probably not Gabrelle. You don’t write like him and you speak of a “so called” marriage. You speak of a transaction. Which transaction are you aware of, “Gabrelle”?

Who is playing funny games?

I’m very busy so if you’re a Gabrelle’s friend stop playing with his computer, have a breath of fresh air outside and eat more fish as Lepage would say.

Adele (Mme. Lepage)  

Subject: Warning

Dear Sabastine,

Somebody must have used your computer’s son and sent me a strange email. Would you ask your son if he is sure to be the only one to know his email password and to use his computer?

Probably Gabrelle told you I had to postpone my flight due to the plans for a general strike in Nigeria?
I’m very sorry about that but my travel agent strongly discouraged me to fly to Nigeria before to be sure the local situation is OK or I could have to wait for hours or days in an airport between Paris and Lagos.

Please keep me informed of the situation in your country.

Best regards

dear adele,

i have recieved your mail but i cannot emphatically tell you anything strange than what i use to tell you before.

of course, i believe the mail you are talking was wrote out of curiousity from my son. he is a young man, who has planned his marriage and had a failure, so there is every cause for him to be agrieved.if you were in his shoes you will definitely be mad.

he told me about another strange mail he recieved which i have told him to forward to you for your confirmation.

moreso, strike which made you to cancell your movement is nigeria strike and not paris nor france strike. you should have confirmed with me before you cancell your flight ticket. this is a very respectly family . you do not need to treat us like kids or your servants. lady,do you know what marriage means?

do you know what it means to fix a wedding and cancel the wedding.

anyway, i need to hear from you. when did you fix your next flight?

remember that i have not failed you for the fiorst time but you have disappointed me so much. this is a big slap to me. gabrelle is crying for me since he recieved this disappointment from you .please, i want to hear from you so that we sahll know what to do.

best regards,

please, read this mail and respond to it first. how did this man get to know me.

well, i pray somthing like you do exist.

Dear Garelle,
I'm an internet friend of your dads and understand you are interested in marrying a rich white lady. I'm watching you and you better not hurt this poor lady. I plan on telling her the truth unless you
gave me a reason not to, like lots of money.


Adele (Mme. Lepage)


Dear Gabrelle,

I understand better know.

Alas you have thought I had written that email from “Tony”.

Tell me, Gabrelle, why on the earth would I have done that?

You say you love me and still believe I’m able to do that? Just that? Not better than that stupid joke?
I am disappointed.

No Gabrelle, the true question is “Who wrote that email?”. Not me, not you, and not your dear Dad of course. I’ve told nobody about us and thus someone must be interfering, spying our emails.

Thus I’ve telephoned the son of Suzanne, a friend of mine. He is professional in computers (not me!) and I told him something must be wrong with my computer, that it must have a virus or something. He came home this evening, did thorough tests and told me that everything was ok. I had to help him several glasses of expensive Irish whiskey for thanking him but at least I’m sure the problem is not on my end.

So the problem is on your end. I thus asked Adrien (Suzanne’s son) some information about how reading someone’s email without telling him of course that I suspected some foul game in our email exchanges.

I’m totally clueless about the Internet but how to write emails. I was told once to try “Google” and to type in “key words” to find any information I wanted. I tried “Google”, typed in “woman” and seen dis-gus-ting pictures. Then I tried again, typed in “horse”, and seen more dis-gus-ting pictures. I have never tried to use "Google" again after that. All that to tell you that I really don’t know the true nature of an Internet virus or how someone could manage to intercept emails.

Adrien kindly explained me that they are malicious software called “keylogger” or “Trojan horse” (I had to ask him to spell the words!) able to catch everything you type on your keyboard and to send it to a pirate so that he knows everything, your password, your private emails, your credit card number, etc.
This world is horrible, don’t you think?

I’m afraid that your computer (or your Dad’s computer) has been infected by a malicious software and that the so-called Tony is spying and seeing everything.

Note that he wrote “I'm watching you” in his email! He did not write “I watched you” but “I’m watching you”.

Thus before telling you anything more I urge you to check your own computer and your Dad’s computer for virus, etc.

If everything looks OK, the problem could be other, I mean “Tony” just got your email password (or your Dad’s) by pirating your email service provider.

Thus please, change your email address and password as soon as possible and let me know when done.

Please warn your father. Tell him to do the same.

Looking hopefully forward to learn good news from you very soon

Your Adele

My dear adele,

I am glad to understand that you observed all the points i tried to make before you in my last mail. just yesterday, the same guy tony wrote me a lot of mail. he forwarded all the corresponding mail between my father and yours husband, including most of mine coprresponding with you too.

This motherfucker , vowed never to let this marriage hold. is it possible? i ask the as hole if he is god?

Well, i think everything is in other as my dady will soon change his own e-mail. he didnt give a fuck of his pirating.

You see as i told you , you should have confided in us before you cancell your flight schedulle. dady is supposed to advise you as abig boss in the oil industry.they were directly involved in the strike affair. and you can imagine right now, the strike did not hold.

Please, when are you reschedulling your visit?

Kindly let me know so that we shall know what to do here. you threw every body off balance.

Please, kindly reach me and direct me on what to do.

I still love you and i believe what happened is just a test of love. sometimes something like that will happen to test the faith of the parthners.

I will expect your mail soonest.

Thank you for your new email address. I've also noted your dear Dad's one.

That's the best way to escape "Tony". You'd have better to not open any new email from him in case it contains a virus or worse.

See you soon.

Object: I have a problem

Sabastine, Gabrelle, Barrister Williams and all of you fraud artists,

I have a problem:

1) either I keep taking you for more rides
2) or I stop right now because I'm getting bored.

I have selected solution #2.

Listen to me "Sabastine":

- I have wasted your time and your money for 4 month and a half now.
- More than one month ago I have written you that I was deliberately wasting your time because you were a mugu, a filthy liar, a low level scammer, etc, but you did not believe me. Instead you thought that mad "Lepage" sent the email and I did not want to disappoint you. You were - then - so funny. You are no more.

You are just pathetic and I am fed up with you.

How can you think - yes you can, I know - that a rich senior woman could leave Paris for good and marry a perfect stranger in Nigeria? People are not as silly as you are, you know?

I could have give you a false appointment at Lagos airport and make you wait and wait and wait, and dream again you could "welcome" that poor old Adele and rob the camcorder, the 5 cellular phones, the Rolex watch, the party clothes, her wallet, her purse and her underwear while you were at it. And maybe hurt her and why not kill her.

You really are disgusting. No, disgusting is not the true word. You are a scum bag, a megaton of nose discharges, a purulent collection of fish wastes, something the pig has dragged in, formalin where generations of dead organs have floated in under the dim light shed by the greasy candle hold by a rubbish-covered smelly troll. I admit those are still not the true words but I am approaching my feeling about you.

So long "Sabastine". The police are aware of your "business" and many people have read your adventures with "Lepage" on a web site and are laughing at you. I do not know "Tony" but it's on that site he has copied all the emails exchange between you and me from the very start.

Just go to and type Martins Sabastine in the box. Who pops up first? Congratulations, Sabastine, you're in pole position. Start your engine right now and drive at high speed until the next tree on your road.

Oh, I forgot: I have made you to write "I love you my Angel" and to send Love post-cards to a man! I do hope you are not a macho. Yes? Toooooooo bad.

Bye mugu. I leave you know, I have other scammers to bait just for fun.


Paris, France

A blood-stained moon shone in a deep scarlet sky. The yellow bats sang their old lullaby. Mr. Sabastine Martins took a deep breath, shuffled his greasy hair with his filthy paws, threw a much worn cloak on his shoulders, shook off the flies and locked himself up in a wounded silence.

What do you expect me to tell my friends that bwe are not going to marry again when everybody is waiting for our wedding DATE,honestly if you really mean to break my heart i will kill myself my blood will be upon your head.
