Subject: SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED soon registered! [NOT a typo]

From a Kindly Contributor in France.
He has chosen the running title "Lady Agatha's fish meets a frog".

Dr. LePage has suggested we edit any grammar mistakes,
but his English is PLENTY good enough for the likes of us,
and we do not wish to dilute its charm.
It's good enough for the Lads too, by cracky.

It is our national feast today 14th of July and I have thought it was the right day
to launch Sc amorama Nigeria Ltd under the sign of "liberté, égalité, fraternité"
(no chauvinism, it is an universal motto, including for Nigeria!


[We cannot imagine a less chauvinist motto.]


WELCOME TO SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED

[Foreword]

Milady Agatha [see the Agatha-Sabastine chronicles],

I do not want to start a diplomatic war between UK and France right now. I really wish to give your HerSelf my flattest apologies - as flat as the frog the truck just ran over.

Sad to say, but I have baited your Sabastiny fish.

But I can explain everything.

You know how things are, those Lads in Nigeria do not care. I only got 2 scam mails in two months. In total despair I have picked up (by hand) Mr. SabasToon's email address in your report
http://scamorama.com/agatha-sabastine.html.

But please, please (please) don't tell Agent Miracsky. I do not want him going berserk at me. I have got a bullet-proof jacket but Dad told me it is a free sample that works only in case the rabbit fires back at you.

Madame, please would you accept my humble homage in the most discombobulated manner?

v Dear F. Lepage,

I am very happy to read from you and also delighted on your willingness to help.

Well, I have to reassure you that this transaction is 100% risk free. But all we require from you is absolute trust and committment in this transaction until the money confirms in your bank account. Moreover, this transaction deserves alot of confidentiality.

Finally, I will like to have your mobile, telephone and fax numbers for easy and better communication. As soon as I receive all the above informations, I shall call you for oral discussion.

Waiting your immediate response.

Best regards,

Martins Sabastine.

Dear Mr Sebastine

Many thanks for your reply. I hope my bad English you can accept as far as I use a tranlation with a computer software that makes it. I would be no use for you to get my telephone because if can read and write English whit the help of the computer program but I do not speak it and coold not understand yours. But I can read your emails. So I propose we keep the email discussion.

No problem for confidentiality. I am a retired (pensioneer) doctor and I have the use of most rigourous secret. You can also trust me as as a doctor I am not use to steal people. The more, I do not need the money for my self because I did well the good job when I was an active doctor. The money will be employed for a orphan association that I take care because I have lot of free time now.

But the first thing I want it is to be certain the transaction is LEGAL. I would be happy if you fax me document proofing that the transaction does not have to do with stollen money or other non legal money. You should have documents proofing that. Please send them by email under the form of attached bits or by fax at my number 17024420326 (Confidential number because I receive the fax by email and only I can have access to my mail chest).

Thank you for your prompt reply. Please ask me again if you do not understand something with my bad English.

Dear Francois Lepage,

Thanks for your good letter and trustworthness. I would like to hear your voice on phone so give your phone number. i will send the required documents with time, as the ministry approves the transfer.

Mr. Martins.


[All my emails in "English" below were first spot out by some " langage tool " supposed to do perfect translations from plain Froggish to Good Ould Oxford English. I have ajusted the text by removing the machine's errors and adding more Frenchglish by hand. I thing the French flavor of the end result is overhelming (feel free to open more windows)]


Pr F. Lepage

Dear M Martins

Thank you very much of your answer. You ask me for my telephone numbers but they would not be useful, and probably dangerous. Like I you already made known as, I do not speak the English and I could not dialogue with you. Moreover, you said as that this transaction was strictly confidential. My wife always answers on the telephone the first, and I do not want she suspects something. More addition I want to make her the surprise of all that money, if at least you are serious, and if this transaction is LEGAL, sorry I insist, and I do not want to give wife false hope for our association of orphans of which she is very busy with too. And you know perhaps the old French saying we tell here " Forget the dog, beware of the wife " !

Now, lend me your telephone number, I can try to call you when wife my is going outside.

I give again to you my number of fax where you can send the documents: 17024420326.

When your Minister for Petroleum have does to approve the transfer? What he waits?

Thank you for your quick time reply.

Dear Mr Martins

Thank you for your electric mail.

I checked on the tariffs to telephone to you from Paris and that is crazy nigaud : it costs 5 euros the minute and that is the skin of the bottom as we say here! Like I allradis said to you, I have enough money but I do not love the wasting. To spend 10 or 15 euros just to telephone Africa and say to you good day and not to be capable to discuss with you since I do not speak English, it would be really really frustrating and sticky wasting. I really have to prefer to give that money to the poor kid opening the door at the supermarket or to our Parish priest.

It is for thus as far better to continue to discuss ourselves between by email or fax.

You ask for the name and adress of my company to me. Odd it is because I wrote to you that I am a professor of medicine at the retirement and that I occupe myselves with one association for orphanes and other any poor childs to help them to have curses at school. I aint not have a commercial company but only this non profit association (I am the president).

If you need really a bank earl of commercial company and not that of one particular man like myselves, I coold not to be help for you. I do not sea what to dil or do, or maybe create a new company in Nigeria? Is that possible from France with your local help? How much that it does cost? Thank you for your answer

Do not forget to fax to myselves as soon as probable the documents evidancing deep house the transaction is LEGALE. It is important for myselves to can be able to trust you totally. I will gard the peppers private and confeedentail.

My fax one more time I give : 17024420326. Do not be shy to use it. I am the only one myselves that can sea the faxes. Wife cannot access my computer because the only thing she know about computers is that it these are dusty things with wires all over the flour !

Also you do not tell what waits your Minister for Petroleum to free the funds. Please tell me more over that.

Looking forward in future hope to estramasse you bien bien comme il faut!

Dear Pr F. Lepage,

Spending 50 euro for a call that will build trust in a transaction that will wild millions of Euro is not a waste from my own judgement or estimation.

All the same, I will send documents that will show you that this transaction is LEGAL only when I have incorporated your name as a registed company in Nigeria. The formal registration will legalize the transaction through the help of our lawyer.

I suggest we use (F.Lepage Nigeria Limited). If this company name will be acceptable to you, the lawyer will go ahead and incorporate the above suggested company name in Nigeria. Although this will cost alot and will also require guarantee letters of three company owners in Nigeria and Tax clearance. It is estimated to cost US$15,750.00 only and will take few days as we have contracted the best and reputable attorney in Nigeria.

With our positions in NNPC and relevance in Nigeria Government of today under the leadership of President Obasanjo, the Minister of Petroleum will approve payment immediately we acheive the above registration.

Also note that we have paid part payment of legal charges to the Lawyer to the tune of $21,600 out of the $45,700 he charged for the legal and positive conclusion of this transaction.

With the above facts and figures you can see that we are working very hard to assure the smooth conclusion of this transaction without any hitch.

As soon as the company is registered the verious ministries will be contacting you and will send all needed document and followed contract payment. So there is no need to panic, but all we need from you reliablity and transperancy.

Awaiting your immediate reply.

Best regards,

Mr. Martin Sabastine.

Pr F. Lepage

Dear M Martin

I am sorry but I think you had done a mistake thereby.

You said that cost to create new company like F.Lepage Nigeria Limited is US$15,750.00 "only" ?

Is it that US$15.75 ? Or the amount not in US$?

You said this is a serious affair, check out your books and please tell me the correct price.

Dear Francois Lepage,
The registration of company in Nigeria and that of France may differ greatly because the two are diiferent independent nations and have different policies. Moreover, registration of company in Nigeria are categorized according to contract capacity. That is to say that any company that will execute multi-million contract must be registered as I explain to you in accordance to Nigerian Company and Allied matter constitution. Your company name will be registered as 'A' Catergory. Which is the highest company catergory in Nigeria and can execute contracts worth of any amount.
We decided to register in this catergory to ensure hitch free transaction and 100% risk free.
Please let me know your stand about the name of compay to enable the lawyer start work he has been paid for.
Awaiting your reply.
Best regards,
Mr.Martins Sabastine.

Pr F. Lepage

Dear M Martins

Thank you very much of your detailed answer.

Of course the economics in our two countries are different stuff, but let me say to you that your lawyer is sticky expensive: $45,700! He must be very rich! Are you ascertain he his the right good man ?

You are right: since aforementionned lawyer above was already paid in advance, best he does the job immediately. You can of curse tell him he can email myselves directly if he wants precise details.

For the name of the company, I do not like very much F.LEPAGE NIGERIA LIMITED because it has my name there inside and to be discrete I want.

Is this would be possible to have SOVEREIGN CHARITY AMOR-AMA NIGERIA LIMITED as company name for? That is the translation of the name of our association for the orphans: in Latin, amor = love (the name) and ama = love ! (imperative). The name of our association was found by Abbe Canne, our local priest, who is fluently Latin, and I think that that will please to him when we finish our business you and meselves. By the way, are you Christian ? If you are Moslem, not problem, it is same Good after all!

I think that it would be great to extend our orphan activities in France for the poor children in Nigeria and to create immediately the company for that will do the job either.

Since you are on the spot, do you know someone, a doctor like me, who care of orphans without money and their parents in Nigeria? If so, thank you to give me his address email so that I can help him when our business between you and myselves is concluded.

I can also give him good addresses, for example that of health insurance for the French doctors, the MACSF, which gives us money for our association. These MACSF people are ready to help. You can see their Internet site at http://www.macsf.fr but it is in French!

Did you learn French when you were with the school?

Thank you very much of your response, specially for the company name.

[Please note that SOVEREIGN CHARITY AMOR-AMA has nothing to do with SCAMORAMA… The MACSF really is my health insurance and I really am a Doctor - but not a Professor. The MACSF site is real, of course. But read from right to left the abbreviation of my dear, very dear, health insurance's name. What do you get ? F* SCAM. And that's exactly my point !]

[*still same IP somewhere in UK. Network is owned by an company in Israel. A cyber cafe?]

Dear Dr.Francois Lepage,

Your mail has been received and content well understood. The lawyer is one of the highest paid attorneys in Nigeria and he is specialized in Energy and petroleum law.

The company name you chose is good since it has something to do with charity organization you run in France. So the lawyer will go ahead to register the name as follows: SOVEREIGN CHARITY AMOR-AMA NIGERIA LIMITED. After paying the lawyer half of his funds, I got short of funds for the registration of company name, I think this will delay this a bit. Please let me know if you can help financially to enable us register and conclude quick.

I am a Christian and God fearing, so what is your denomination?

Moreover, I have taken a look at your associations website and will give every other details about a Dr. that operates such a home but we have to conclude one transaction at a time.

As soon as the company is registered I will fax the certificate of Incorporation to your fax number, for you to laminate and keep.

The lawyer's email Address is: barrichwilliams@justicemail.com

You can contact him and he will brief you on the procedures.

Best regards,

Dear Master Willams,

I am in liaison with Mr. Martins Sabastine for the creation of company SOVEREIGN CHARITY AMOR-AMA NIGERIA LIMITED.

I realized that the name is a little long for the administrative forms, etc, and you can shorten it in SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED. It is what we do in France for our association orphans which has the same name in French (I joint a paper with a head).

Mr. Martins told me that you could brief me on the procedures and I thus thank you with advance for agreeing to answer me on this point.

Sincerely

Pr F. Lepage

Dear Mr Martins

I have written to Master Williams Lawyer and I put you in copy. I do not speak to him immediately about his fees since he was already paid the half. In France as in Nigeria, I suppose one pays people after the work and not before. It is normal Master Williams Lawyer has received a payment in advance, but he needs finish the job adequately before receiving the other half, if I can suggest. I do no know either if he is fully informed onto the nature of transaction and I prefer to stay discrete in a first time.

Into my other hand, I have still not received your fax showing that this transaction is legal. I am sure that you are honest, but I must be careful and I cannot help you by engaging money without any proof from someone I do not know yet very well but I happy that you are a Christian. It is more easy to trust people who share the same feeling about charity and love for the others.

Thank you for your comprehension and your answer. And as we said in France : je te le mettrai bien bien ! (approx translation : you farewell well!)

Mr Martins

I have not received any response meselves from Lawyer Williams nor from you even.

Master Lawyer Williams got very substantial fees in advance and do not tell me he does not work on Saturday. For the money he got he must be able to work night and day without breakfast or shoes as we say in France!

I doubt if I can trust Lawyer Williams in any way.

I would like to ask you to accelerate things a bit. I leave on July 27 to our holyday house in Spain and I have aint got no connection to Internet down there.

If we want to conclude this transaction, it is necessary for you to go QUICK!

I am not used to wait and wait for ages and old years. In all my life as a doctor specialized in the emergency ward I have saved many people life only because I was quick blowing them with the life kiss at the right place and press hard under and on their breast and they say thank you with shiny eyes when they recovered. Probably you have seen that "ER" series at the television. We had it in France with "medical" translations that gave me a good laugh and cough. If I had said these sentences to my past staff they would have said are you ET phoning home or what? Compared with me and my past staff those people are just sticking bad!

So please reply as soon as probable.

I will send my company identity card to you via email attachment, since you do not still trust me after such introduction. The great question remains how would I trust you with such a huge sum of money when you even dont have an atom of trust on my personality. Thanks for recognising me as God fearing chrstian.

Dear Mr SAN,

Thank you for your mail about creating SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED.

US$15,750 : it is very dear to create a company in Nigeria but Mr Martins Sabastine told it is for a "A" company and I can understand.

However I am sorry to ask you that but please send me an official document from Nigeria governement you must have with the different moneys to spend to create different companies, "A", "B", "C", etc, and the corresponding privileges for these companies. I suppose the more you pay the more you have privileges as a company and I want to see those privigels.

Additionaly the more I must have this paper for my Adele Wife mine who is also the accounter for the association.

Of course I have not and shall not to tell her the exact nature of the transatzion but if I want to release founds from the orphanes assocation chest at the bank I need this paper to show her why I need a "A" company.

I will tell my Adele Wife mine it is to create a subsidiary of SC AMORAMA FRANCE in Nigeria. She will agree because mind you we received extra founds last months from the MACSF, the health insurance company that grants our association (http://www.macsf.fr) and I must spend the money before September or next year they will tell : "you have not spent this extra money, thus you did not need it and you will not get it this year and give that money back!"

They are generous but they do not give money just like you blow a duck as we say in our French letters !

Also before proceeding for the payment, I need an official bill from you with the exact natures of the expenses (register the company and your fees) and your hard-work lawyer numbers (your registration numbers as lawyer in Nigeria).

Without that my Adele Wife mine could not ask the bank to release the money from the association chest because they will request the document anyway.

Additionnally, without this document the tax services here will not accept that we substract the amount from our profits and we will pay more more taxes and it is total sticky nigaud.

I am sorry it looks a bit complex but we are not a commercial company and that is French law I can help sorry for that.

In summary, please send me
1) official prices to create a company in Nigeria;
2) a bill with your full professionnal registration numbers and coordonates and
3), as I asked you in my last mail before being able to conclude any transaction with you for SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED I need your full resume curriculum vitae (CV: studies, diplomas, experience, references, and your last tax bill in Nigeria to evidence your income). The French Agency for Work will ask for the document if I want to pay a lawyer who is not French. Sorry again it is dull but with the amount involved in our transaxetion I want to have all the papers legal here or they could fine me a lot or even sgratch me out! You can check out the French governement site http://www.legifrance.gouv.fr and you will see alas that all that is needed before any transaction between France and another country not in the European Union (it is not a special measure for Nigeria).

As receipt of ALL the above documents I will send you copy of my passport and other document you could request. Sorry, but if not, I can [editorial: cannot] proceed further

My private fax number is 17024420326 (I receive the fax via eclectic mail and I am the only one that can sea them).

As I have already told to Mr Martins I prefer not to give our telephone numbers because Adele Wife mine ever picks up the telephone first (and chats for hours with her friend Agatha!). The more I do not speak English very well and use a translation programming software to fully understand your mails et to reply you. Mr Sabastine can confirm this fact.

Please explain me also how to transfer the US$15,750 to you if I decide the transaction is OK. I have to prepare that with the bank as well. A direct bank to bank wired transfer is possible ? Does it costs ?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

You know, when you have had a doctor's life like mine you know people very well, some are kind, some are bad. They ask you for a medication for their head ache and then try to inject it by any hole. This job makes you a bit paranoid, I agree, but understand me.

I will be bery glad to see your id and your face. I trust in faces and in fact I often make faces myselves. Eyes cannot deceive a doctor. When I see eyes even on a photo I can see if the Mr or the Madam is to be trusty or tricky. So I hope yours eyes on your id card are wide shut open!

I reckon it is unfair if I see you but you cannot see me ("see me, see you" is an old traditionnal French song!)

Thus attached are two very recent photos taken in our association summer fast last week. It was a great success! We even had a splendid fire job!

The first is my with one of our orphan and the second is me with Adele Wife mine. I hope you will enjoy them.

I have forgotten to put in your right place a copy of my reply to Master lawyer SAN. I affix it below.

All the beast, Sabastine. I am not a bad man but a doctor used to the life!

Thank you for your fast answer.

Will Pr F. Lepage get SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED registered for free?
Will Adele my Wife mine agree to open the orphane association chest?

Object: No problem with the miss up

Dear Mr Sabastine

Thank you very much for the photos. You are looking very smart and honest and your wife as wheel. Is those senior people your dear Dad and Mum?

No problem with the miss up. Everybody can get a miss up. The only important is you did not told your friend in UK.

You write you will travel to UK soon. When exactely? I knew a Doctor in London (he speaks good French!) and I think he has a relative who works for the Queen's office or so. Maybe they could help you when you there?

You could also give a visit at me in Paris if I am in France (remember I leave July 27). It is only 3 hour travel from London with the new yellow submarine train Eurostar.

About Mr Willams SAN, yes I have received 2 documents but I am only half happy with SAN because it is only the half of the documents I requested.

I will write him after this mail because either he is too busy, either he is too lazy, either he has a secretary he would better to fire work at the first occasion.

It is IMPORTANT as I wrote.

However I did a missteak with my bad English in my electric mail dated Jul 14 to Mr Williams SAN you got copy:
Instead of "As receipt of ALL the above documents I will send you copy of my passport and other document you could request. Sorry, but if not, I CAN proceed further"

Please read of curse:

"As receipt of ALL the above documents I will send you copy of my passport and other document you could request. Sorry, but if not, I CANNOT proceed further"

I still cannot read your id card. Would be a good idear to convert it in "jpeg" or "gif" and attached it.

Also you did not tell me who is that christianlee_pj@hotmail.com or ODORUKWE who sent me bank numbers in South Africa.

Object : Got your fax

Dear Mr Willams

Thank you for your fax. Your CV is sticky impressive.

I have seen you love to listen to good music as a hobbit.

What do you think of "Die Kunst der Fuge" by John S. Bach? I love specially the build-up when he introduces the hi-hat and the kick drum as a contrapunt with the distorded guitar and the Moog synth. It is a pity he had an OD in the swimming pool before finishing the job off. As you know, Wolf (from the Gang of the Amadeus Moose-Art Band) tried to complete the tune. He was a good DJ for sure but obviously his reconstitution of the missing scratch-disk part is less than ideal. Merely my opinion however.

Well, all that is baggins, back to work now.

Recoil I have asked you for:

(1) official prices to create a company in Nigeria : Status : 0K, RECEIVED
(2) full resume curriculum vitae (CV: studies, diplomas, experience, references) Status : OK, RECEIVED
(3) a bill for your action to register SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED with your full professionnal registration numbers and coordonates : Status : MISSING
(4) your last tax bill in Nigeria to evidence your income: Status :MISSING.

To be precise I do not ask you to show your private parts in income. It is confidential of curse. However the French administration will request an official paper with your gross parts in income. To calculate the taxes they want to check if foreigners are allowed to have any affair with French people. The result depends on the size of the gross parts and they are very stringent about that. French are like that, I cannot help.

Other thing, probably it is not your fault and you must bee a busy man. But let me say you you maybe lay down too much onto your secretary and she do not care. You should check what she really does under the desk with such an important affair.

Note I did a missteak on my Jul 13 message

Instead of
"As receipt of ALL the above documents I will send you copy of my passport and other document you could request. Sorry, but if not, I CAN proceed further"

Please read of curse:

"As receipt of ALL the above documents I will send you copy of my passport and other document you could request. Sorry, but if not, I CANNOT proceed further"

Mr Sabastine

I have thought for long of this leakage problem and really want the things clarified before going further.

Lawyer Williams SAN sent two more faxes. Should I ashes them for good?

I do not like your "In God we trust" code. First I do want God to be mixed in any way with all that and second it is too easy to guess.

For security reason, the code will be as follow:

- In MY electric mail MUST figure the first half : What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
- In YOUR electric mail MUST figure the second half : An African or European swallow?

Please learn it and do not forget.

How it comes that a oil specialist as your have such an insecure connection? Have you displayed your email password in bold caps on your desk or what? Puzzled I am.

Introducing Adele Lepage nee Beware Of the Wife



Adele (Mme. Lepage)

Mr. Sabastine

What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

I know this email comes as a surprise but read it.

My name is Adele Lepage. I'm Pr Lepage's wife and the chief accountant for SC AMORAMA FRANCE LTD.

I've followed all you email exchanges with Pr Lepage from the very start.

He used his date of birth as password! Frankly, is he not too much! Lepage is a kind man but totally unaware of money problems. He doesn't make any difference between one cent and a billion. As he says "All that is f* money and I don't care. I'm a Doctor. I'm here to save people's life and don't tell me more about money". Easy to say when you're a famous Professor of Medicine earning $2000 a day! But if I had not been here, all our money would be gone to the first guy next door looking miserable enough.

Francois is a very nice man and had been a very skilled doctor and surgeon in the emergency ward. Until he got shaky hands, hence the drama.

A patient was admitted for a bump on his forehead. Francois took the surgery knife and tried to fix it. Now the patient is nicknamed Zorro. Not funny, I agree.

In other words, he is totally uncomstobulated now. He wanted to start a new carrier as a brain surgeon but I've advised him to forget the surgery and - why not - to care for orphans and their parents. He agreed and we bought the castle, put orphans and their Mum's and Dad's in it, hired plenty of teachers, doctors and nurses, put all that on the heap, and everybody is happy, ok, it's gas, tra la la, let's dance in the rain, clap your hands, etc.

NOW LISTEN TO ME CAREFULLY

I'm fed up with this life. I'm spending hours and hours every bloody day with Excel spreadshit just to calculate again and again all the money for the orphans. When I think Lepage told you that for me computers "are just dusty things with wires all over the flour"! That's stupid. Flour is used to make bread, not to bear wires. The exact word is floor, as in "rolling on the floor laughing". And he keeps telling me he has better English than me! Poor old thing!

Believe me, Sabastine, Lepage is just a full of beans. He is totally unable to carry out such an important transaction with you and Williams. We have been married for 31 years now and enough is enough.

He can wander where he wants, rip out any belly he wants and try to graft guts on brains: I-do-not-care.

I have enough introduced myself.

Now:
- Stop writing to Lepage immediately and inform Lawyer Williams about the new situation.
- Without news from you and Williams, Lepage will probably tell me he has changed his mind about SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED. I will reply "Oh really, honey?" as I usually do and he will forget in a couple of day time.
- Lepage was stupid enough to believe such a transaction could be done with emails and faxes only.
- WE HAVE TO MEET.
- I have decided to travel to Nigeria to meet you and Williams and, if our meeting give me adequate information and reassurance, to proceed to the bank operations and payment of Williams' fees directly in your country.
- We could have a dinner with your family as well.

Your son looks superb. Is he single?

Tell me what you think ASAP.

IMPORTANT: NEW SECRET CODE

As Lepage's email account is so easy to crack, here is the new code between me, you and Williams :
- In MY future mails: What say the Knights?
- In YOUR future mails: The Knights say Ni.

Dear Sabastine, dear Williams SAN

What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Everything is OK now. The new bank numbers Lawyer Williams SAN has given are all right.

I have given all the bank money numbers and address to my Adele wife mine and she said that I do not bother whith you having a bank in Spain while in Nigeria, it is only international stuff normal for international money she said.

She will go tomorrow Monday to the bank to finalise the money transfer with the bank manager.

The bank manager is a nice guy. I know him very well and you can trust he will do all the money stuff the right way. He is very involved in his job : he has regular meetings with Adele late in the afternoon because it is more quiet at the bank and Adele is back home at midnight or even later with tired eyes for having worked so hard!

Dear Lepage,
How are you and your family? I hope all is well, we are still expecting to hear from you soonest as regards to the registrations.
There seems to be leakage in what you called your private email address, so if you really want us to conclude this transaction with you, truth must be your watch-word.
Why didn't you go to the bank yourself since you are aware of the confidentiality required in this transaction. Remember I asked you before now to assure me of your ability to follow up this transaction and you replied that you are capable and nobody is aware of it, but now what is going on is not what we negotiated.
All the same I will still give you benefit of the doubt, To go ahead if You show signs of seriousness today or tomorrow.
Best regards,
Mr. Martins Sabastine.

Sabastine

If you want to TOTALLY WRECK this transaction, continue this way.

I told you NOT to write anymore to Lepage but you did it.

You added information about a leakage!!!

Are you STUPID or what? Do you want the money released or not?

I DECIDE, NOT LEPAGE

Of course I've deleted your email to Lepage and he won't get it.

You wrote Lepage "Why didn't you go to the bank yourself". I already told you Lepage is totally clueless about money and banks. Can't you read?

He never told me about the true nature of the transaction. He just told that creating SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED would be great for having a subsidiary of our orphanage in Nigeria and of course I agreed.

Anyway Lepage is gone fishing with his friends until next Friday and I'm totally free to do what I want.

You can keep writing him, I have reset his email account: all emails from you or Williams to Lepage are now automatically deleted.

Now, if Williams and you want this transaction to continue the RIGHT way, stop your funny attitude.

I do hope you've understood THE RIGHT WAY this time.

Read again my last email. If you don't reply the adequate way I'll STOP this transaction.

Dear Sabastine

How are you do?

No mails from you from a long time! Is everything OK?

You right. That is probably leakage my side as well. Friend of mine sent an electric mail but I have not received it. He tried again: no message. Somebody must be spy.

So please note my new email address : prlepage@hotmail.com.

I am on a fish party with friends and it is just admirable! I have forgotten to tell you that and sorry for that.

Fortunately one of my friend of mine have a laptop and I can write you from the hotel.

Did Lawyer Williams SAN received the money? Should be done now. I am nervous to know if everything is OK.

Just to check but have you got my bank account number for you to wire the money?

For safety and leakage reason we have to change the code
In my next mails: Your favourite colours?
In your mails: Blue not red

Please reply as soon as probable


22/07/03 No mail today, my Lad is gone away... Was he afraid of the "leakage", of Adele, or both? Or is he too busy with Lady Agatha? Nous verrons bien! Cheers from Paris

This time I will advise you better change your personal password.
Moreover, this is to inform you that we have not hard from you about the payment
and bank account number. So I am very surprised, but if you have made the payment you are advised to send copy of such to me immediately. It also baffles me that you enberked on Fishing party without informing me adequatly.
I think you have to be a bit serious in this transaction, because time waits for nobody.
Expecting your immediately response today.

Dear Mrs Adele,
Do not miss understand my actions, it just that am being trustworthy and be a man of my words, all the same I want the transaction concluded as soon as possible, like you can see from mails to your husband. I have spent alot of funds into this transaction and can not fold my arms to let my investments go like that.
Since you have followed the whole developments I will advise you go ahead and make the transfer, I promise that all other correspondence will be with you. After all, you are representing the same organization.
I will also inform the lawyer that you will be working on behalf of your husband.
About your coming to Nigeria, we shall welcome you but that will be after registration of the company name.
My telephone number is 234-1-7762712, please feel free to call me ok. My son is single.

Objet : Your favourite colours?/Sorry

Dear Mr Sabastine

Your favourite colours?

I really am sorry for the leek. I have now a very secure password full of !*@@ like my son told me a clean password must be.

Sorry also for the fishing party you were not aware.

All that was very fast. A friend comes home Sunday night and said "What about fishing? I leave tomorrow morning. Ready to come?" and it was not planned but I have agreed immediately because I love to fish and to come and I forgot to say you I went fishing and coming and sorry again.

Mind you I have got two bollocks as big as sperm whales. We have eaten them on the beach while singing an old French fishermen song. I tink the English title is "Fifteen women on the dead man's chest. Yo-ho-ho, and more bottles of rom!". We had not rom nor ram but red wine, Champagne, Calvados and Guinness and I was a bit leprechauned after but I am OK now.

About the current transaction, my Adele wife mine said me in the telephone there is some problem to wire significant amount of money from France to Spain currently. She said something about our Minister for Phynances limiting the maxallowed amount because too many people try to pass huge money as a wind over the border pretending it is only to buy bocadillos and tapas and not ummagumma. Are not those floyds lads too much pink?!!!

I trust Adele anyway to finish the job with the bank manager as soon as probable. She is very skilled to blow all that for good you know.

Now I warn you : I am going fishing for a 24h session on a boat including this night and will be back tomorrow Thirstday night only.

So please note : NO MAIL FROM ME TOMORROW. I will be back in Paris next Fryday anyway and keep you updated.

Re: The Knights say Ni

Mr. Sabastine

What say the Knights?

At last you trust me.

You're a busy man and probably you've missed some bits in my last email specially this one: "Lepage was stupid enough to believe such a transaction could be done with emails and faxes only."

Ok, I've received Williams' faxes showing he's a real Senior Advocate in Nigeria and this part of my file is closed but I've got no official evidence the $41.5M you wrote about in your first email are REAL.

Remember I'm a chief accountant. I can't satisfy myself with words.

That's the reason why I won't ring you at your 234-1-7762712 tel number. I don't like to waste time endlessly chatting with people. Papers keep a better trace.

As a member of the special committee for budget and planning of the ministry of petroleum, you must be able to email me FULL EVIDENCE about the REAL EXISTENCE of the $41.5M.

Don't take me wrong: in contrast with Lepage, I don't care the money is legal or not.

On receipt of your mail DEMONSTRATING the $41.5M DO exist, I'll DECIDE if I it's better to wire the money for registration of SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED or to travel to Nigeria.

Dear Mrs. Lepage,
As you can see from the mails I have had with your husband, you are bond to see documents from the lawyer. The lawyer accepted working with us after careful follow up and appraisal of the transaction before accepting to work for us. Moreover, I sent my family's picture to demonstrate trustworthiness and transparency; it will be very bad and will also create unwanted lack of trust for you to doubt the genuineness of this transaction. So be rest assured that US$41.5 million is real and you will witness the funds in your account as soon as the company is registered and all documentation arranged by the lawyer. Do not panic, you will see for yourself.
If the above is not enough, then I swear and bet with the life of my family, I hope you are ok now. You are the one delaying the whole transaction and further proves, I will advise you go ahead and transfer the funds.
All other proves will come as soon as we get this company registered, to enable the government agencies and ministries to issue you the payment approvals. Best regards,
Mr. Martins Sabastine


Adele (Mme. Lepage)

Mr. Sabastine

What say the Knights?

1) I NEVER panic. Don't use NO MORE words like "Do not panic" with me.
2) A good Christian fearing God NEVER says "I swear and bet with the life of my family".
3) Your family photos are great and your son looks superb as I've already wrote. But NOTHING shows this is REALLY your family.

Therefore, as LAST AND FINAL proof of your trustworthiness, email a photo of yourself holding a paper with SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LTD on it in BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS.

You can spend 2 minutes in an ID photo machine and it's cheap. I don't request art work.

Dear Sabastine,

Your favourite colour?

Ah my friend, what a hard's day night on the boat! We have meet/met/mate a phoque off shore! He was trying/tried/trout to eat our fish but a good blow on the nose and he said Mamma Mia and ploof he goes!

Good new: the fishing party is prolongated until Scatterday!

Seriously Sabastine you must try a good fishing party. It makes you brand new for good and you Sabastine are working so much that I have a bother for your brain.

Do you know that fish is a good source of omega-3 fatty acid (EFAs) necessary for optimum health, maintaining cell structure and producing energy? There is now evidence that eating fish can play a positive role in mental health.

You should read "Effect of fish oil supplementation on fatty acid composition and neurotransmitters of growing rats by Li H, Liu D, Zhang E. (Wei Sheng Yan Jiu. 2000 Jan 30;29(1):47-9.)

Also "Neuroprotective effect of developmental docosahexaenoic acid supplement against excitotoxic brain damage in infant rats" by Hgyes E, Nyakas C, Kiliaan A, Farkas T, Penke B, Luiten PG (Neuroscience. 2003;119(4):999-1012).

And of course "Experimental demonstration of the tomatotopic organization in the Soprano (Cantatrix sopranica L.)" by Georges Perec Laboratoire de physiologie, Faculté de médecine Saint-Antoine, Paris, France. Full text here : http://pauillac.inria.fr/~xleroy/stuff/tomato/tomato.html*

I am a Medicine Doctor and I tell you this, Sabastine:
FISH IS BRAIN FOOD, YOU MUST EAT FISH.

Fresh fish of course.

Adele told me the problem with money transfer to Spain is not finished yet but should be resolved soon. She is just waiting for a document, or so.

Sorry, my friends are ringing the bell for the tea break.

So more later.

Objet: Holydays in Spain/my ID card

Dear Mr. Sabastine,

What say the Knights?

Please note we'll leave Paris tomorrow Sunday Jul 27 to spend holydays in Spain as Lepage already told you.

I have not received the last document you must send before I wire the money to register the company (Euro 22 875,00 as first payment for the Euro 45 750,00 total, the second half also Euro 22 875,00 to be paid at receipt of the registration documents, following Mr Williams fax)

Remember I just require an ID photo with you holding a paper with SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LTD on it. Please be sure this is the last document I will require. Understand me please: if I had not been very carefull in my professional life as a businness woman, we would not have all the money we enjoy now. As a proof of my sincerity, please find attached a copy of my ID card.

As we will be in our house in Spain (Costa Brava, near Barcelona) it will be easier for me to proceed with one of the local branches of your bank Caixa Catalunya.

I'm disappointed you did not reply to my last email. I'm sorry if I was a bit rude with you but my life as a Chief Accountant didn't teach me to be especially kind with people. I'm like that but I think I'm more efficient this way. Also I really am tired after having worked so hard and I need holydays.

Lepage told you we have no Internet connection in Spain but was wrong as usual as far as computers are concerned. I'll take my laptop. Of course you can continue to use my usual email address.

Don't expect new mails from me before next Tuesday as Monday I'll be very busy cleaning the house with Conchita (our local housemaid). Of course Lepage will be in the swim pool yelling from time to time if I want some help. No way, he would try to connect the freezer with the satellite antenna.

A nice week-end to you and your family, especially to your lovely son.

Dear Mr. Sabastine

What say the Knights?

Hello from Spain where we are spending wonderful holydays after a small domestic accident.

Sorry for the long silence but I had some connection problem from Spain. Mind you Lepage managed to wreck the telephone line by trying to transmit his electrocardiogram to a friend Doctor of him in France with a special device he got. The file was 10Gb but the Spanish telephone wires have a diameter of only 1 mm. As a result, they went very hot and the plastic around them started to melt with a foul smell and lot of smoke. Conchita was bright enough to collect water in the swim pool with a bucket and managed to extinct the fire but now my Iranian carpet looks like something the duck has dragged in. Lepage just said he had not do that on purpose and that the carpet was made of fake camel hair anyway. Ah dear. We had no telephone for 3 days and it's the reason why I couldn't see and answer your mails.

I'm going to read your emails now and will reply later.

Object: Your ID card

Mr. Sabastine,

What say the Knights?

In reply to your last email: something must be wrong:

1) Your photo on the card is very different to the one you sent previously to Lepage with your wife, your gorgeous son and your daughter. On your Business card (by the way not an ID card and an ID card must show your date of birth) you're about 35 years old but in your family photo you looks at least 60. I don't understand. Is that you family photos were taken at a party when you were wearing a mask and fancy dresses or have you taken a family pack of DHA in the meanwhile or what?

However you wrote to Lepage about your family photos "The picture shows my wife and myself with my last son standing in between, the other one shows my first son and my only daughter."

Puzzling, no? I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN.

2) You have forgotten to join a photo of you with a paper reading SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LIMITED. Remember I'm require it as last proof , specially because I 'm in trouble with such different photos of you.

Have you got my own ID card with my last email dated Jul 26 2003?

Due to the very probable leak your side, please note the new password:

Hola Sebastine!

Your favourite colour?

I did not knew/none they have builded an Internet Cafe in Real Cunio the little village in Costa Brava that we have our house in overlooking the sea. When I sawed the brand new Internet Cafe called Perro Amarillo I said to mineself why not to email my good ould friend Sebastine of mine to know how are things in Nigeria?

Thereford here I am drinking cerveza and eating tapas while writing you (the boss is very kind : you just have to pay for a new very cheap keyboard at $154 VAT included in case you spill something. I told him he must be more cautious : I just find/found/foundation an old rotten peanut stick/stuck/steak under the Caps Locks key and you should tell Lawyer SAN or his secratery it is probably the problem with his computador as they say in Spanish. Ole Toro!).

Adele told me she will would want to wire the money direct from the tree branch you are on of Caixa Catalunya we have here in Real Conio. It is a small bank office and they sell chorizo as well to make extra profit but Adele told there is no special problem and she is just waiting for a last document from France if I have catched that well.

Holydays are fine. We had a small problem with the telephone but Conchita fixed it.

Conchita is the young Lady helping my Adele wife mine to clean the house etc. You would like to meet her (not Adele, Conchita). She is ab-so-lu-te-ly breasttaking. She is 22 years old with long black hair and a golden sun skin. As for her body it is pure Praxitele (a building contractor from Greece I know who does statutes and makes millions in Athena).

Last Tuesday aftermoon Conchita and myselves had a chat while Adele was shopping and she told me : "For me, you are Pr Bubbles!" "How that?" I said. "You're so light and funny" she said in a laugh (she has good French). Then she removed her clothes (she had a very decent swim suit under but the see of her gave me an electric shok starting in my left toe (the one that aches when it is wet) and ending fireworking my brain after a stop in between) and had a dip ploof in the swim pool.

Suddenly Adele came over. "Conchita ! What are you doing in the swim pool". "Oh please, please Missus", said Conchita "Would you just permit me to blow bubbles under water? It's so hot". Adele agreed. Is she not kind? (Adele not Conchita but Conchita is also kind).

By the way, after all that Conchita told me she has a cousin in Columbia who has a businness partner in Nigeria. It is for international exchanges of Ummagumma she said.

Ummagumma! She was jogging of course and I love when she laughs she is so pretty but her spoking about Nigeria! It is a small world.

Salud! I send you the true Sun of a Beach!

Dear Pr. Lepage,

Nice reading from you. Well you and your wife have delibrately delayed this transaction to a stage I can no longer wait. Your wife in particular has been using treaks on you about the payment. Right now she is not willing to make any payment, this is the simple truth. By so doing she has branded you not man enough to handle a multi-million dollar transaction. So if really you are capable as you said at the initial stage I will advise you make the payment by yourself or consider your interest in the business lost.

I will move work with somebody who is capable if after this mail you and your wife prove that you are not capable to handle multi-million transaction by paying the little fees.

Dear Adele,

Good hearing from you once more. The ID card and the family picture can never be the same, because of the envirnment and effects of light in pictures, take for instance your id card and that of you and your husband has great difference. Location,light and time matters alot in photograph. As a senior accountant you should know of all these.

You can go ahead and pest your company name on any of my pictures of your chioce. If after this mail you are not ready to work with me please let your husband and me know. This will enable me work with more serious, who exhibits trusth on my personality. The fact that I am working with you which will give you millions of dollars can not make me a fool, who knows what will happen when the funds finally enters into your care.

My Dear Sabastine

What are you banging?

I don't understand why you're so angry. Why should I deliberately delay a transaction that will award me with US$41.5M ? Please give me only one unique reason explaining why I would behave that way. I need that money asap as I already wrote you.

I'm afraid YOU are delaying this transaction. I just request a photo of you holding a paper with SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LTD on it and I don't understand why you refuse to send it.

I have been to the bank in Real Conio (Spain) where I'm currently and I've prepared the whole transaction with my bank in Paris. Now I've just to telephone the bank and to give them the secret code and the money is wired.

Here is my LAST AND FINAL OFFER :
you send the photo
at receipt I telephone the bank and give them the secret code so that they wire immediately Euro 22 875,00 to Mr. Williams' account

Additionally, I've received an email from a Mr. ABAJA writing about a DEAD BANK CUSTOMER IN IVORY COAST who left US$35M on his bank account without any next of kind to inherit the money. Mr. ABAJA wants only US$12,500 to get the papers showing I'm the sole and unique heir and it will be easy to get the money.

Therefore my dear Sabastine, if you want to stop this transaction right now just let me know. I'll not be mad against you and I'll forget all our emails.

Thus don't worry for me : I'll get the money I need from Mr. Abaja anyway.

You can go ahead with the so called Abaja, the simple thing is that you have two photograph of me with you, so how come you find it very difficult to write the company name and pest on any of them. I have tried my possible best to please you but to no avail.

Who is trusting who? the person sending 25,000 euro or the person risking $41.5 million United States Dollars. Think very well madam I have tried to keep on with you and your husband as my good friends but all I get is distrust and treath. It is unfair, well because am back and you are white.

Lagos-Nigeria.

Dear Sir,

Following the sudden death of my husband General Sani Abacha the late former head of state of Nigeria in june 1998, I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the present civilian administration, I have been subjected to physical and psychological torture by the security agents in the country. My son was just released from detention two months ago by the Nigerian Government for an offence he did not commit. As a widow that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with anybody within the country.
[blah blah]

I have deposited the sum of 30.000.000 million dollars with a security firm abroad whose name is witheld for now until we open communication.I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your account for safe keeping. This arrangement is known to you and my son Ahmed alone, so my son will deal directly with you as security is up my whole being.
[blah blah]
Sincerely Yours,

HAJIA MARIAM ABACHA. PLEASE REPLY VIA THIS EMAIL ADDRESS:

My Dear Sabastine

Your favourite colour?

First sorry for my long silence again but it so warm here I prefer to stay in the swim pool than to go to Real Conio and then in the Perro Amarillo Internet cafe.

I am sorry for the delay about the payment but my Adele wife mine had to fly to France suddenly last Tuesday because her Mum is hill. It is really warm currently in Paris and the Doctor of my Mother in Loo told her to drink a lot. She has not probably well understood (she is 93) because she apparently started on Chateau Margaux instead of water and with 38°C outdoor it was not a good idea for sure and I told Adele « ring her again and tell her, tell her, tell her to stop » but at 93 you have not your teenager ears specially after 3 - 4 liters. Ah dear me.

By the way, why do you write 'Your wife in particular has been using treaks on you about the payment' ? I do not understand/sod. How could you know that? Puzzled I am.

Again I am sorry about the delay but if Adele says a paper is missing that is to mean a paper is missing. I know her. It is August and in France loads of banks, administrations etc are closed or you have to deal with temporary staff who cannot see the difference between a pint of a stout and a pink of an elephant and I cannot help.

I will ask her to accelerate things when she is back next Frightday. In the meanwhile, Adele is not here, but Conchita is here and he he he, guess what? Ole Toro!

Well all that is good fun but I have received a sad email of Hajia Mariam Abacha and the copy of it I put below. You are in Nigeria and do you know her maybe ? Is that horrible story true ? Should I trust her and help her ?

Thank you in advance for your answer and you advice.

Kind regards and take care

The end?
No new mail from Sabastine. I think it's all folks!
MiLady Agatha, that fish seems totally yours now. I will not write him the last usual email "I wasted your time nah nah nah and you are a stupid Mugu nah nah nah and all that is on Scamorama nah nah nah" because I do not want to wreck your admirable efforts.
Good fishing and when you catch it for good please spare a small bit for me (I would prefer it well smoked on a big peat fire).




I thought the game was over but it was not. Mr Sabastine's motto is probably: "No surrender!"

Dear Lepage,

Your wife does not want to the payment, from her attitude you will know that she is using treaks simple. If you are still interested in handling this transaction I can only avoid to wait till next weekend, after next weekend you did not make the payment I will discontinue with you.

Mrs M. Abacha is the wife of our late president and am not aware of other things, my advise you should forget about her transaction until conclude the one we have at hand and I will advise on what next to do on her own.

Best regards,

Mr. Martins Sabastine.

My dear Sabastine

Your favourite colour?

Thank you very mucho ombre for your kind electric mail. I cannot know right now if my Adele wife mine is using treaks simple because there was an accident.

She comes back from Paris one day earlier than intended. My Mother in Loo is far better. She understood she had to give up Chateau Margaux and she started on plain Martini-Gin on the rocks. The good part is the ice because it is still very warm in France as in Spain and at least she will have some water to drink and the olive to eat.

Well, about Adele, immediately after she comes over here, she puts her swim suit, yells it's bloody warm here, removes her sight glasses, runs to the swimming pool, climbs on the higher dive-board, jumps and I hear "Hurrrrrraaaa---aaaaaaaargh" BONK.

I had totally forgotten to tell her I had removed the water to clean the swim pool with Conchita. I swear I did not do it on purpose if you really wants me to swear. Now my poor wife mine is at the ospedale with the nose the size of an award winner tomatoe, a cracked skull and 2 broken ribs. The Doctors say she must stay there at least for 3 weeks. That is to say I will have to stay alone here with Conchita until the end of August. Sad, very sad. Ole Toro!

Back to work now : I will do the money tranfer myself. I have the right to do it anyway because I am the President and I do not know what bloody paper is missing and I do not want to bore Adele with that as leprechauned as she is but it is certainly not as important as she says because Senior Accoutants loves papers but not me and I thrust you and she is too paranoid that is that I say all the time you are too paranoid Adele.

I will go to the bank in Real Conio tomorrow (I will buy also chorizo and calamare in su tinta while I am on it) because it is too late this afternoon the branch is closed and have all that sorted out believe me.

Kind regards. Remember to eat fish, caramba!

YOU SAID THAT YOU SENT MONEY TO MY ACCOUNT WHICH I GAVE TO YOU,BUT THE INFORMATION REACHING ME FROM MY BANK IS THAT YOU DID NOT SEND ANY CENT.MR. WHY ARE YOU LIKE THIS I THOUGHT THAT YOU ARE VERY HONEST I DID NOT KNOW THAT YOU ARE GIVING ME FAKE INFORMATIONS.IF YOU WANT ME TO BELEIVE THAT YOU MADE THE PAYMENT KINDLY SENT TO THE PROVE THAT IS {PAYMENT SLIP}.

LET ME ASK YOU ONE THING WHAT IS THE MEANING OF WHENEVER YOU WRITE TO ME YOU ALWAYS PUT -: O ?

I LOOK FORWARD TO HEAR FROM YOU SOONEST.

My dear Sabastine,

Of curse you did not get the money: I have wired the EURO 22 875,00 to Mr Barrister Williams SAN's account, not yours. I emailed Mr SAN, not direct you and just put you as copy.

Remind you never emailed me your own account details anyway. Maybe it's too hot down there where you are. Worried for you I am.

As seen in my last email to him, Mr SAN emailed me last Monday and gave me his new bank numberings I repeat again:

NAME:I .I ODURUKWE
BRANCH CODE: 633205
A/C:9095902842
SWIFT CODE: ABSAZAJJ
BANK :ABSA HYDE PARK

I do not see what can be wrong. Just ring SAN please and he tell.

Do not mind the :-O in my email to Mr SAN, it is a kind type of separate the sentence we use in French when we want a message very clear and I think/sout it was international but it is apparenly not.

So relax now, have a drink, breath fresh air and ring SAN. I am going back to the villa, the swimpool and Conchita (Yum! Yum!).

Dear Francois,

Right now I'm not doubting you that you did not pay the money but I need a prove so that I will know what to do next.For the fact that the lawyer is denying that you did not pay him any money how will I know who is telling the truth?is from the evidence .Do not hide any thing fronm me,I'm the one that negociated for the lawyer so if any thing is going wrong you should let me know unless you are doing back yard business with the lawyer,but if it is on this our particular transaction there will be no sucess on it,he (the lawyer) can only succeed in extorting money from you without perfecting it. Just send the whole detail through attachment for my view.

Best Regards,
Mr. Martins .

Dear Sabastine,

You last email is terrible. Why are you insulting me??? Me having businness with Mr Williams SAN in the back yard??? What kind of businness do you mean??? I am not like that you know.

You told me he was one of the best paid lawyer in Nigeria and still you think he would be able to extorting money??? Is that a lawyer or a mere crook??? How come you trust him???

I have wired EURO 22 875,00 and Mr Williams SAN pretends he did not get the money???

Angry I am. I am going to email Mr Williams SAN immediately and put you into the copy.

Subject: Money bounced

Dear Barrister Williams

Sorry for having bent it rude with you. Something was wrong with the bank in Real Conio. I have seen Maria-Dolores Bocadillo (she is the bank manager) and she told me the money I sent has "bounced" (her terms) as the bank account has the wrong numbers.

So please confirm your bank account. Holly fish I am puzzled.

Adele (Mme. Lepage)

Aug 18 2003
Subject: News from me

Dear Mr. Sabastine,

Sorry for my long silence but I had an accident and I'm still in the hospital. Conchita has brought me the laptop.

I suspect Lepage just tried to kill me by emptying the swimming pool without warning before I jumped in. Anyway I feel much better now.

Mind you that Lepage tried to wire money to an account in Africa. Fortunately I have an agreement with Maria-Dolores Bocadillo who runs the bank office in Real Conio. She is a good friend of mine and she agreed to telephone me every time Lepage tries to fiddle with the Association's accounts to check if I agree before proceeding. This time it was for Euro 22 875,00 and of course I told Maria-Dolores not to wire the money and to tell Lepage something was wrong with the bank details he gave.

Thus, and unfortunately, I can only suppose you are still in touch with Lepage despite all my warnings about him being totally clueless about money. I can understand you because I have not emailed you due to my accident but it's time to restart on a firm basis. Once again please forget this old fool of Lepage who tried to kill me. He's becoming more and more strange speaking about fish all the time with a weird light in his eyes. Conchita told me she 's sometimes afraid of him. So please beware of Lepage, he could wreck our transaction and send you insane emails.

I had time to think while in the hospital. I've read magazines about Africa and Nigeria and understood you live in difficult conditions with all those criminals, drug dealers and corrupted people around you. That's probably the reason why you emailed so different photos of you: you must be very cautious and protect your life, I can understand that and I forgive you.

My request is still the same: email me a real photo of you holding a paper with SC AMORAMA NIGERIA LTD on it (of course not a photo made with a computer by copy/paste, it would be useless). That's the simplest way I can see to be definitively sure you and Mr. Williams are the right people in the right place for this transaction. I will keep your photo strictly confidential and will not ask for more evidence after I have received it.

Best regards

Dear Adele,
How are you ?hope you are recovering from your accident .I'm very sorry for what happened to you.

But why did your husband choose to do such an evil act on you, is very bad.Ipray that God will see you through.

Let us be serious and deliberate on how we are going to suceed in this transaction.Iam the one that surpose to entertain fear,for entrusting such huge amount of money in you.To be sincere with you the condition you are giving is like a child's play,it has nothing to do with getting this money out from where it is.

If you are not ready to participate in this transaction,you better tell me so that I can look for another person it can only take me time,Iwill get somebody else who will trust and understand me. One should be possitive in thinking ,If one wants to cheat putting emblame on the shoulder and snap picture is not a symbol of sincerity.If documents are can be signed which is the authority that solidify every transaction what then do you need?

You should know that if not because of this your condition,by now you would be in Nigeria at least seing my wife and my children. Lets us face the registration of the company which is the primary thing to effect this transaction. Just make hays while the sunshines,make up your mind so that we can go further.You should go ahead and pay in the money if you want. I hope you will reason with me,thanking you in anticipation.

I expect your urgent reply.v Best Regard,

Mr.Martins Sabastine.
