Hello Friend,

I am MICHAEL HARNI.A former government official of Liberia. Following the exit of president Charles Taylor of Liberia from power under a WestAfrican brokered peace agreement, led by Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo he was granted asylum by the Nigerian Government. In my position as the Financial Secretary to the President and close confidant, I left for Nigeria in his Encourage.
My country has been engulfed in Protracted Civil war with rebels controlling some parts of the country. During the war, President Taylor disbursed large sums of Monies to buy the loyalty of the entire cabinet, and I can say with all modesty that I was one of the Chief Beneficiaries of this disbursement. This is aside from monies I used my official position to acquire while in office.
Since we relocated to Calabar, Southern Nigeria all has been well, but with the recent indictment of former President Taylor by the war crime tribunal sitting in Sierra Leone and confirmed reports of a dedicated fund by the American Government to capture him in order to face war crime charges have now decided to leave the country. Presently I have funds totaling United State $15,000,000.(Fifteen Million US Dollars) Which I intend to move oversea for investment and spend the rest of my life there with my family. This transaction is risk-free as all local arrangement has been made.
If you are prepared to assist to work with me I require the following: Your Full Name and Address, Your Private Telephone, Fax Number and private Email Address. As Compensation for your assistance you will retain 15% of the Total sum, While 5% will be mapped out for local and International expenses. Though we are not known to each other, I strongly believe that through this transaction we would be able to forge a mutually beneficial relationship between us, now and in the future. Finally, the success of thistransaction will depend to a great extent on mutual trust,secrecy and Confidentiality from you.

I await your response by E-mail:-harnimichael@gmail.com
Best Regards,
MICHEAL HARNI.

Hello Friend,

I am using my Gramma's computer so I can write a term paper . My computer isn't very good at getting information, so it's better to use Gramma's, but it's ok for email though.

I wanted to write a letter to Bonnie, my best gf in the whole world, and when I logged in to Gramma's e-mail account, I found this letter from you, and I wonder if you would let me in on this deal?

I know I'm kinda young, and maybe you don't think I could do it, but I'd like to try. Is that OK? My name is Amanda, and I'm 16 years old. What would you think of this?

YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT IN Y PRESENT POSITION, I AM HANDICAPPED AND CANNOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL I HAVE THIS CASH SECURED SOMEWHERE SAFE AND WITH SOMEBODY RELIABLE WHO CAN MANAGE THE MONEY FOR ME. MY INTENTION IS TO LIVE THE REST OF MY LIFE IN YOUR COUNTRY AND THAT IS WHY I CONTACTED YOU FOR THIS ASSISTANCE.

I ALSO WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT A FRIENDS OF MINE HERE IN NIGERIA HAS INTRODUCED ME TO A DIPLOMAT THAT IS WILLING TO MOVE THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOUR DOOR STEP AT ANY TIME YOU SO DESIRE.

1. YOUR FULL NAME.......
2. YOUR FULL CONTACT ADDRESS.......
3. COUNTRY / CITY ..........
4.DRIVER'S LICENCE OR ANY OTHER FORM OF IDENTIFICATION) TELEPHONE NUMBER AND A COMPREHENSIVE ADDRESS OF WHERE THE DELIVERY WILL BE MADE.

I HAVE ATTACHED THE CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT,THE DIPLOMAT I.D CARD AND A PICTUREOF THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOU OK.
IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE OF ASSISTANCE IN THIS REGARD, I SHALL GIVE YOU THE NAME OF THE DIPLOMAT AND HIS TEL. NO. SO THAT YOU CAN ESTABLISH CONTACT WITH HIM AND FAMILIARISE WITH HIM BEFORE HE ARRIVES YOUR COUNTRY.

YOU SHOULD HOWEVER HAVE IT IN MIND THAT I AM BANKING ON YOUR UTMOST HONESTY AND TRUSTWOTHINESS FOR THIS WHOLE TRANSACTION TO SUCCEED.
I WILL LIKE YOU TO FORWARD TO ME YOUR IDENTIFICATION.

MR MICHEAL HARNI.

Hi Michael!

I got your letter, but I can't see the attachments. They are there, but they are like, really little! I can't read the certificate, and your ID. The box of money looked like it was full of $100 bills! Was it? WOW.

I read about Charles Taylor on Wikipedia, and it says he was in prison and escaped, and got caught and was sent to Sierra Leone, and is is prison in Nigeria. He sounds like a really bad man aren't you afraid that he will find out that you have his money, and have somebody kill you? I know I sure would be!

How safe is this deal for me?

Hello Amanda,

Thank you so much for your letter, i want you to keep those attachments because they are very important from this transaction. Amanda, i want you to know that i got those documents from the Security Company like that and you need to keep them safaty because you are going to present them to the Diplomat when he arrives to deliver the Money to you . Yes , they are $100 bills which is the money in the box. Yes, that is true. Charles Taylor was granted asylum in Nigeria by then Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo . When International Court in Hauge asked the government to release him to face the crime of Humanity that he committed in Sierra Leone. He escaped and later was caught by the Government .
Amanda, i want you to know that this transaction is 100% risk free and there is no way he will know about it but i can tell you to keep the transaction secret and confidential. I will guard you until the money come to you . When this money come to you , i will then come so that we can share the money . I want you to send the required information so that i will proceed the process of this transaction. I can assure you for your safety and me in this transaction. Thanks,
Michael.
Amanda L'Egge
Hi, Michael,

I got your letter, and I don't know why you can't send your attachments again so I can at least see them! That wouldn't be too much trouble would it?

Here is my information, but you might think I'm not right for this partnership with you. I don't have too much spare time because I go to school, and I take care of my Gramma because I live with her. My Mom and Dad got divorced when Dad had to go to prison. He'll be out in about 40 more years, the judge said. Then Mom started to go out with other men, and then she ran off with some guy she met, and left me to live with Gramma. That was 4 years ago.

1. YOUR FULL NAME....... Amanda Arlene l'Egge
2. YOUR FULL CONTACT ADDRESS....... 2 Longgams Road
3. COUNTRY / CITY .......... Shankspony, Maryland, USA .

4.DRIVER'S LICENCE OR ANY OTHER FORM OF IDENTIFICATION).......As soon as we get a scanner, I'll send you a copy of my driver license, OK? Gramma says we can go to the store this weekend, and get it because of me needing one for school.

TELEPHONE NUMBER.......There's a problem with a telephone number, because I live at Gramma's house and she mostly answers the phone.

COMPREHENSIVE ADDRESS WHERE THE DELIVERY WILL BE MADE.......I suppose that would be the one I gave you. That's at my Gramma's house.

I'm in my room now, and using my own computer, so I don't have to worry about Gramma seeing anything between you and me. She's a little "funny" that way. She wants me to"stay away from all men, and that includes letters and phone calls, young lady!!!" (that's how she talks) until after I graduate from college, which will be in 14 months, because I'm taking accelerated courses.

Anyway, when I use my own computer, she can't see what I'm doing. She's really a cool old lady, but she doesn't want me to quit school, and since she's paying for my education, I guess I'll have to do what she says. Except on my own computer, (when she's sleeping or watching TV).

Now you can see why I can't give you our telephone number, but I could call you, if I had a cell phone, which I don't. Gramma says that a pager is all I need for the time being, and she's right. If she needs to call me, she calls that number, and I can call her back when I'm out of class. If I need to call her, I call her when I'm out of class.

Is this OK or do you want to find somebody else to help you?

Your friend, Amanda

Hello Amanda

As you know that i am in Refugee Camp. Amanda, don't worry everything will get better . Thanks .

From your friend Michael.
Amanda L'Egge
Hi, Michael!

WOW! Two letters in one day! Gramma is taking a nap, so I can write to you. She will be getting up soon, so it will have to be short.

I can't call you, Michael. I don't have a mobile phone! I told you that. Cell phone is another name for mobile phone.

I didn't know you live in a refugee camp. That must be horrible for you, especially after being such a high-up official with President Charles Taylor. I am still afraid of him, now that you have my address at my Gramma's, he might get it, and come after me. He sure doesn't sound like a very nice man!!!

Another thing, when you first wrote, you said that my share would be 15% of the $15million dollars, and I was OK with that, over $2 million dollars for me! I could spend it on a whole bunch of stuff that I want. Now you say that I will be getting 40%, which is $6 million dollars! I am just AMAZED!!! What did I do to deserve this? I would have been happy with 15%! Are you ever generous! I'm just a little country girl in Maryland farm country, and next thing you know, I'll be rich!

This is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool!

Dear Michael Horni,

I just got home from school and when I checked my mail, I see I got two letters from you, and the first one is OK, but there are a few things in your second letter that I have to ask you about. I got that letter only 2 minutes later, so you must really type fast! WOW, am I impressed!

I WANT TO SEND YOU THE KEYS

Keys? What do I need keys for?

FIRST BEFORE THE DIPLOMAT ARRIVEL YOUR HOUSE

Oh, you can't have a man come to our house! Especially an African diplomat! Gramma will set the dogs loose on him for sure, and he will be torn to shreds. She has 3 bull Mastifs and a Rottweiller, and they don't like men, and they really don't like black men. If he came in African clothes, there's no telling what the dogs would do. But they sure wouldn't like it, I know that! Tell the African diplomat to stay away!

YOU WILL PAY HIM INSIDE THE CONSIGNMENT

What does that mean?

MR MICHAEL, THE ONLY THING STOPPING THE SHIPMENT OF THE CONSIGNMENT

Why do you call me "Mr Michael" That's your name, mine is Amanda.

YOU WILL RECEIVE THE KEYS BEFORE THE DIPLOMAT ARRIVEL YOUR HOUSE.

What keys? Keys for what? Is the trunk locked? (That wouldn't really be a problem, because Gramma has guns, and we could shoot the trunk open.)

I hope you and your family are doing OK on only $15 a day. That really isn't enough to live on. How many children do you have? How old are they?

As for the $300, if you don't have to send me the keys (remember I told you about the dogs and the guns?) and you don't even have to pay for shipping the trunk. Just have it sent COD (Collect On Delivery) and as soon as it gets here, we'll shoot it open, and pay the freight charges out of the trunk. Pretty simple.

Just make sure the FedEx truck is parked down the street, and it would be better to have a woman deliver the trunk, the dogs are OK with women. Send it COD, and everything will be just great!

This is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo super cool!

Dear Amanda,

Yes Amanda, i can type fast . Thank you so much for your mail. KEYS for the CONSIGNMENT BOX. This is because you can not open the box without the keys. Amanda, the DIPLOMAT is from United Kingdom ( UK ) and she is a wite woman , i hope there will not be any problem by that? Amanda, i want you to know that we will need to act fast so that we will get this money . I am very sorry for the error in typing , what i meant was your name Amanda not Michael. Amanda, i want you to know that is very important for you to have the keys ok. You don't need to use gun or anything else except the keys ok. Amanda thank you so much for your caring for me and my family . It is for you know that the family of 4, two children , a boy , girl me and wife. They are 9 and 11 years old . You can see that we are really suffering here because the government can only give $15 for the family a day.

Amanda, i told you that you need dogs or gun ok. Thanks ,

Michael.

Dear Michael Harni,

I just have a few minutes to write before I have to go to my classes. I thought of something. Is all that $15million dollars in the trunk box, and am I supposed to remove only 40% and send you back the rest? That's a lot of trust you're putting on me. If I was a crook (which I'm NOT!!), I could just take all the money, and you would still be in the refuge camp, trying to live on $15 a day.

I just read your first letter again, and I guess you will come to America so we can split the money, but do you think we will just sit down at the table and count out your share, and my share? My Gramma won't put up with that, for sure! First of all, you wouldn't get past the dogs! Second, she wouldn't let you in the house, and she wouldn't let you talk to me, either! She's really protective of me.

The only thing I can think of is to tell Gramma that I want to get a part-time job after classes, and then when you get to America, maybe I could meet you at a restaurant or something, so we can figure this out?

I gotta go now, so I won't be late to class. My friend, Bonnie, who I ride with, will be picking me up in about a minute. Gotta go.

Hello Amanda,

What is going on ? i want to hear from you.Thanks.

Amanda L'Egge
Wait 'til Monday morning to answer... Hi, Michael!

I didn't get your letter till late last night, and I was soooooooo tired, I just went to bed. Some of my girlfriends and I went up to the mountain to ski, but there wasn't a whole lot of snow yet, so we went hiking instead. Just put the skis into the cabin room, and off we went! WOW, was it ever fun, and really tiring! We sure saw a lot of really neat nature stuff. We even saw a bear, and two deers.

Gramma asked me if there were any boys around, but I told her no, which was true. I just like to do stuff with my girlfriends mostly, because boys are so silly sometimes, and they like to try to do sex-things all the times. That could get me pregnant, and that would really make Gramma upset, and get me grounded for life! Now I live with her all the time, and like I told you, she is real protective of me, she wants me to get an education, so I don't "end up like your parents!!!" She says that a lot.

Anyways, I have a couple of minutes before I go to school to write to you, I got the feeling that you are worried about me, but don't worry about me, because I am OK. I have to go to classes today, but I will go to the college work center and see if there is any part time job that I can do. I have had some experiences in office work, so maybe I can do that part time, in some office near Gramma's house.

Gotta go, Bonnie is almost here and I have to go brush my teeth, then off we go to classes.

Love, Amanda Lad doesn't waste much time, does he?

You need to get a part time job. Thanks.

Friday afternoon, Amanda responds Hi, Michael!

Wow, I think you must have a direct line with the college work office! No sooner did I read your mail I got on Monday, the telephone rang, and they had a job for me! I bet it wasn't longer than 5 minutes!

It's about 5 hours a day, I have to tutor the kids of one of the professors here, and fix their supper and get them into bed. Then I have time to do my own studying, before the professor's wife gets home from her job. The kids are 3 little boys, Manny, Moe and Jack Pepp, they are 4, 6, and 7, and they are really good sweet kids, and real easy to get along with. I love them! and I even have Fridays off, so I can get this reply off to you. The pay is pretty good, too... $7.50 per hour.

I'll get my first paycheck next week, so I hope I will be able to pay the whole $300, but if not, can I pay you $200 and $100 the following week? Is that OK?

Will you let me know if this is OK to do this way, I will be waiting for mail from you.

Love, Amanda

Michael said for me to write to you. So here I am!!!

Hi, Mrs. Martins!

Michael said I'm supposed to get some information from you, so if you can write back to me as soon as you can, it will be a good deal.

I live with my Gramma, and she's gonna be gone all day, so I can write back to you without her bothering me to help with the chores and stuff.

Say HI to Michael for me, OK?

Hi, Michael!

DON'T YOU REMEMBER???? In one of my early letters I wrote:

Oh, you can't have a man come to our house! Especially an African diplomat! Gramma will set the dogs loose on him for sure, and he will be torn to shreds. She has 3 bull Mastifs and a Rottweiller, and they don't like men, and they really don't like black men. If he came in African clothes, there's no telling what the dogs would do. But they sure wouldn't like it, I know that! Tell the African diplomat to stay away!

And you replied:

you can not open the box without the keys. Amanda, the DIPLOMAT is from United Kingdom ( UK ) and she is a wite woman , i hope there will not be any problem by that?

Then a MAN writes to me, and says:

I am Diplomat George elected by Mr Michael Harni,I am the Diplomat who is to claim the Truck box from Cotonu and move it to your state in right ? Now i will need you co-operation and assistance so as to move this truck box to you in your state safely .

Michael, you told me that the DIPLOMAT would be a white woman from the UK. What changed? Don't you believe me? Did you decide to sacrifice your Diplomat George? I told you that the dogs would KILL him! The mailman won't even come to our house..he's so afraid of the dogs!

I CAN'T TELL YOU THIS OFTEN ENOUGH--DO NOT LET AN AFRICAN MAN COME TO GRAMMA'S HOUSE!!!!! Tell him to stay away! OK to send the white lady from England, but a black man would be killed.

I'm sending this letter to Diplomat George, too. I hope he will pay attention to what I am saying. It is DANGEROUS for him to come to our house!!!

Love, Amanda
Diplomat George

Dear Amanda,

Thank you for your message, and i want you to know that all this has already been said to me by mr michael and i understood your memo,Amanda the diplomat in UK is the one who is still going to come and make the delivery just because of what you and mr michael said but i want you to know that the diplomat in Uk can't travel down to Benin in contonu to claim the consignment so i am the person who is going to travel down to the Ninja Security company in Benin Cotonu to claim the consignment and ship it down to UK,just to pick the Uk diplomat along with me so the both of us are coming to over to make the delivery but the UK diplomat which is a white woman is the one who is going to come inside your apartment to make the delivery to you in your house why i am going to be at a guest house over there,i am just coming with her to make sure everything went smoothly alright.

So don't worry Amanda everything is under control alright...Please provide me with your full information again for verification before i ship the consignment to you,but before i can ship it i will have to wait for mr michael to give me the letter of authority to claim the consignment from the Ninja security Company .

i await to read back from you as soon as possible.

Hi, Mr. Martins,

Please provide me with your full information again for verification before i ship the consignment to you

1. YOUR FULL NAME....... Amanda Arlene l'Egge
2. YOUR FULL CONTACT ADDRESS....... 2 Longgams Road
3. COUNTRY / CITY .......... Shankspony, Maryland, USA

Is this what you need?

Don't forget. DON'T come to the house! The dogs will probably kill you. And tell the UK lady DO NOT wear bright colors! The dogs don't like pinks, or orange, or red. Blue is OK.

We live in a real small town. Tell the UK lady that all she has to do is ask anybody where Margaret l'Egge's house is. They will probably say, "Who? Do you mean old Peggy?"

Gramma doesn't really use her regular name anymore, but if you go to the post office and ask, they will tell you. It's right downtown, in the back of the Piggly Wiggly (that's the grocery store)

Thanks for your time. Amanda

Hello Amanda,

i got your mail and the full contact info you sent to me and also i have heard all what you have said regarding you house dogs okay..All i am waiting for now is for Mr michael to give me the letter of authority to claim the consignment and ship it to you okay...

Hi, Mr. George!

It's lunchtime now, so I have 2 hours to myself. I just got your letter, and I am glad that information is good for you. I'll write to Michael, and tell him to hurry up with the letter you need.

I have to make this very clear to you. The dogs are NOT "house dogs!" We don't ever let them in the house, they are too dangerous. They are yard dogs, and they're like, on patrol ALL THE TIME! Gramma and I are the only people who can control them. If we are not here, people know better than to try to approach the house. There are signs all over.

Michael wanted to know when I would get paid from my new job, so I have to write to him and tell him, so we can keep going with this.

Hi, Mr. George!

I don't know why you're being so mean to me. It's Michael's fault that he's not giving you the letter of authority, not me. I told him to give it to you, and if he didn't, that's on him! I can't just get on a bus and go force him to do it, you know!

I told him I was going to get paid, but if I couldn't send the whole $300, could I give him half, then the rest later? He never said if that was OK, so I when I got paid from my job, I went and bought some stuff, and now I only have about $100.

Michael didn't even tell me where to send any money, so I don't know what you guys want me to do!

So don't be mean to me. It's not my fault.

Hi, Michael,

I had to use most of the money I was going to send to you for a ticket back to East Virginia, and buy a dress for the funeral. All I have left is $13.85, and I found out that the cost to send a money gram to Africa is $10.00. Do you think you can wait for the rest, or should I just forget about it for a while until I come back from my cousin's funeral?

And he should be. Look at the trouble I got into! I send this Monday...

Hi, Michael!

Wow, I'm really sorry this took so long! I didn't have any way to write to you, nobody where my cousin lives had a computer! Talk about prehistoric!!! But what can you do, they hardly even have a telephone! Imagine people who still use a dial telephone--no buttons, you have to turn this plastic thing on the front of it, and it takes FOREVER to connect. It was like using an antique!!

Anyway, my poor cousin finally died. They called me to come and help them sit with her, and they told me she probably wouldn't last a few days, but she sort of "got well" a little when she saw me, and we had a real nice visit, then she got sicker, and she finally died last Tuesday. They had the funeral on Friday, and it was real sad. People from all over the county came, and they were crying and everything.

Then the worst thing happened! My two uncles, Harry and Shorty, got into a fist fight at the wake, and a couple of other guys joined in, and then there was a riot! Pretty soon, there were beer bottles flying all over, and chairs, and somebody called the police! 24 people got put in jail, including me, and I didn't do anything! I was trying to get to a safe place to hide, and the cops rounded up everybody who was younger than 50! The cops didn't take Uncle Harry to jail because he's like 75, and he was the one who started the fight. Can you imagine?

I have never got into trouble before in my life, and now I have a police record, and everything! My Gramma is still mad at the policemen for arresting me. I had to pay a fine, and I'm so embarrassed! The judge said that this would be on my record for the rest of my life!!! I sure hope this won't make you want to throw me out of this deal.

Please tell me you still want me to help you get that money.

Love, Amanda

SO AMANDA NOW THAT YOU ARE BACK TELL ME WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET THIS $300 SO I CAN DISPATCH THE KEYS TO THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOU,THEN THE DIPLOMAT CAN SHIP THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOU .

I answer immediately...

Hi, Michael

I just got your mail, and I got to say, I almost wish you decided to fire me from this deal. I got fired from the babysitting/tutor job, and now I don't have any money.

Prof. Pepp's boys are crying for me to come back, and I really want to, but Mrs. Pepp says that I am a bad influence on the kids, just because I had to go to jail, and it wasn't even my fault! Michael, it is so unfair! I won't have a chance to clear my name until the trial, and I can convince the judge that I am innocent! The trial is set for Monday morning next week, and I have to get a lawyer. I talked to Gramma, and she said I should call her lawyer, Phyllis Stein. Gramma hates Uncle Harry, and she thinks I can sue him for false arrest.

I will go see her tomorrow and she can tell me what to do.

If you know any magic, like you did when I got the job, I'd sure appreciate anything you can do for me.

Please don't fire me from this deal, Michael. You have been working so hard, I want to help you get everything you deserve. I really do. Write back and tell me everything is OK, OK?

Love, Amanda

Michael writes on Sunday, and includes the requisite lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ong sentence--apparently, the Laddian computers have no 'comma'-keys. (Students of the English grammar should not try to diagram this sentence, as it will cause several short-circuits of the synapses, and possible coma. Do not drive, or operate heavy machinery.)...

Hello Amanda,

Thank you for the mail and i really appreciate your effort towards the sucess of this transaction..Amanda i want you to know that you are the only person who i have to transact with and there is no way i can take you out of the deal so don't worry yourself to much about it okay .

Amanda,now that they don't want you anymore at where you work maybe you should go and look for another job because i need to send the keys to the consignment to you so we need this $300 so i can send the keys to you before the diplomat can ship the consignment to you and again is not an african that want to come to your house to make the delivery of the consignment to you,i told you the african man is to ship the consignment down to UK where the white female diplomat will continue from there and the white woman is the one who will be making the delivery of the consignment to you and as you know that i want to send the keys to you first before the consignment can be shiped to you and the only thing delaying bis our inability to pay for the courier charges which is the $300 so now i want you to tell me how we are going to get this $300 so i can dispatch the keys to you before i instruct the diplomat to go and claim the consignment from the Ninja security comapny and ship it to you okay.

I await to read back from you soonest okay.

Amanda L'Egge
Hi, Michael!

Well, I am really glad that you are keeping me in this deal, I have an appt with Phyllis Stein tomorrow afternoon at 2. She tells me that she is defending a guy who got arrested for almost the same thing as me, so she will have experience in my defense. Said she will be in court all morning, so she can see me after lunch. She thinks we should be able to get several thousand dollars in damages. Isn't that coooooooooooooooooooool!???

Gramma is so happy. You should see her, dancing around the kitchen, she even made my favorite breakfast for me, waffles and jam!

I told this to Mrs. Pepp, and she said that if the judge finds me innocent, I can have my job back!

You can probably guess, I'm in a really good mood, and so is Gramma. She really is a neat old lady in a lot of ways, but she can be really strict, too. I guess that's OK.

Amanda L'Egge
Hi, Michael!

Like I told you, I had an appointment with Phyllis Stein, and she said she could help me with this, but the court date was postponed until 2 weeks, I don't know, some big murder trial or something.

I'm still waiting to see if Mrs. Pepp will give me my job back, but so far, all she did was let me babysit for the boys last Saturday, when she and Professor Pepp went out to dinner and the theater. All I made was $30, for 4 hours staying with the boys, so that's not nearly how much you need.

Michael, you don't know how much I missed those boys! Manny lost a tooth, and was so proud of the new one growing in already! What a cute kid, I almost cried when I saw them. I begged Mrs. Pepp for my job back, and she said she would think about it, and that the boys loved me so much, she might let me back.

That's about all for now, I hope you are doing good. WOW, it's really getting cold here. I had to put another blanket on my bed!

Another tall tale, from the labrynth in my mind...

Hi, Michael!

Gosh, I didn't hear from you in such a long time, I was wondering what happened to you. Why didn't you write to me? I could sure have used a friend, something really bad happened, Gramma fell and broke her nose! When the paramedics came to take her to the hospital, they said most elderly ladies break a HIP when they fall, but she didn't, so she was really lucky, and then she started hollering at them, "SO YOU THINK I'M ELDERLY, DO YOU????"

She jumped off the stretcher, and drove herself to the hospital! So there she was, behind the wheel of her car, holding a bloody towel under her nose, and when we got to the hospital, the doctors and nurses couldn't believe it! So they got her all fixed up, and set her nose in a splint, and she's healing pretty good.

All this happened just before Christmas, so it was a funny time, with Gramma all bandaged up.

Anyway, how are you? With all the excitement around here, I forgot all about our deal. Get me up to date, will you? How's everything going with the diplomat lady?

Love, Amanda

I finally reply to poor, patient Michael, and send him a (courtesy of Captain Manwairing, who was kind enought to send me a master-template) mocked-up WU form with all kinds of dinky info on it--the agent's name is Oscar Mayer...

Amanda L'Egge
Hi, Michael!

Happy New Year, and I'm sorry this is taking so long. I finally got my paycheck and got it cashed. I asked Mrs. Pepp to hold my money for me until I got the whole amount so I could send it to you. I even had a little bit left over so I could spend it on myself! I got a new jacket.

I hope this is the right amount. I sort of remember that the first time you told me, it was only $300. I'm sending you a copy of the Western Union form I filled out. Mr. Mayer helped me with it. I hope the copy comes through OK, I don't know if you can print it out, and have Odiri Onosibeluo take it to your Western Union station there.

Let me know how everything goes with the keys and all, OK? And don't forget about the diplomat. You said it would be a woman, you remember what I told you about the dogs. They are really mean, I'm really afraid of them, and Gramma doesn't trust them very much.

Love, Amanda

Oh, my goodness! Lad can't get the ca$h...

Date:Fri, 18 Jan 2008

Hello Amanda,

Thank for the email you sent to me with the information of the money transfer you send to me but amanda when i send Odiri Onosibleuo to pick up the money for me he came back telling me that there is no money available for the control number and the information you sent to me so i could not get the money out today okay.

So Amanda,i want you to go back to the Western Union store where you sent the money from and complain to them that the reciever could not pick the money up because is not available so i will suggest you go there and retrieve the money back and then go to another western union store or Money Gram store to reSEND THE MONEY to me so the reciever can be able to recieve the money here okay.

Please amanda,i beg you to do this immidiately you read this mail or call them on the phone to complain to them or go to the store where you SEND THE MONEY from yourself to complain to them,tell them you want to retreive the $350 back and after getting it back you caqn go to another western union store or Money Gram store to resend it to Odiri Onosibeluo okay .

Amanda,i want you to know that i have contact the dip to get ready because immidiately i send the keys of consignment to you i will give him the letter of authority to ship the consignment to you and as you know that recieving the money is problem and it will cause delay so i want you to sort everything out today and reSEND THE MONEY to me okay.

Please i beg you with the name of God to act fast on this issue so that i can get the money first thing tomorrow morning and then send the keys to you tomorrow because it is very important you recieve the keys before the consignment cos you are going to pay the diplomat from the consignmnet and is going to be a big amount but don't worry about the amount,he will be coming with a papper you will sign there you will find the amount you are to pay him for his delivery charges okay.

I await to read back from your urgent response with the transfer detail so i can be able to get the money tomorrow and send the keys to you tomorrow .

Best Regards

Michael

Calamity! A good excuse is always handy, and this one is dandy...

Hi, Michael!



I'm really sorry I haven't replied to your mail lately. The day I was supposed to go talk to Mr. Mayer, Gramma went and this time she broke her hip, she tripped over one of the big dogs, and down she went!! I've had to stay with her in her hospital room for most of all the days, and even some nights. She doesn't want to be there and in pain, but she can't go home. I've to take care of the house and the dogs, and this is the first time I've had a chance to answer your mail.

She's been in the hospital for over a week, and now has to go to a resting home for a few weeks, the Dr. said, just so she can heal good, and not have to worry about the house and her darn dogs. I wish she didn't have them, but they're good protection for me living here by myself for a while.

I'll stop at the Western Union office on my way to the rest home to see Gramma, and talk to Mr. Mayer. Please be patient with me, I'm doing the best I can. Gramma says I would be a good nurse, and I should go to Nursing School. I don't know about that.

Love, Amanda

Time to let Gramma go...

Dear Michael,

Oh, I'm so sad today. Remember I told you Gramma tripped over one of the dogs, and fell and broke her hip? Well, she went and died this morning! It's up to me and my uncle Sam to make the arrangements for her funeral. I've been crying all morning. But that's not the worst part!

Now I have to go back and live with my Mom. I am really bummed about that, and so is she. I don't think she's going to be very happy about having to pay for my education like Gramma did, but I guess she'll get over it (she'll have to, if she wants me to move out of her house as soon as I'm 18!) Then she can party with all her men friends and be a ho.

Uncle Sam says he can take the dogs out to his place, he said he can always use more guard dogs, and I told him that's about all they're good for, since they're so mean.

There's so much to do, with the funeral, and we have to sell Gramma's house and all her stuff. Uncle Sam says I can use some of that money for my education, so my Mom won't be too mad having to pay part of it. But I told him I'd rather save it up to buy a little house for myself, and get away from my Mom.

I'm sorry I can't help you. I have to live my life, and do the best I can.

Love, Amanda

Time to give the Lad the old heave-ho...

Hi, Michael!

Things are really, really wierd around here. After Gramma died, we all went to her funeral, and as usual, my uncles got in a fight. They hate each other!! They started to drink liquor at the house, before we even went to the cemetery, and by the time we all got to the grave, they were yelling and hitting each other.

I think it's because they both were in love with the same girl, and Uncle Harry ended up marrying her, and now she wants to divorce him and marry Uncle Woody. They have 6 kids, and all of them look like Uncle Woody, so there has always been a lot of suspicion going around. They're not even brothers, so you can see, a "family resemblance" isn't there. Everybody always thought the kids weren't Harry's, but nobody says anything, and he loves them, so I guess they will be all right. At least this time we all didn't go to jail. Just Uncle Woody and Uncle Larry, but they weren't put in the same cell, that's for sure!!

Anyway, Uncle Sam sold Gramma's house and the farm, for $9.5 Million dollars! Can you BELIEVE it??? and the deal is in something they call "escrow" so it will be another week or so until I get the money. All the relatives say I should keep all the money, and not split it with them, because I stayed with Gramma. Besides, they're all really rich, so they don't need it or want it, and they think I should use the money to buy a little house away from my Mom the ho, and finish school.

After all the house-sale expenses, I should get around $9.4 million. Isn't that cool? I think so. The first thing I'm going to do is buy myself a cute little dog, one that isn't mean, like Gramma's dogs were. They scared me. Maybe they're OK at Uncle Sam's house.

So, here's the reason for my letter. I won't be helping you get out of the refugee camp. I am rich now, so I don't need your money. You should try to find somebody else to help you, 'cause I won't be the one. Good luck to you. I hope you can get out of the camp, and live a regular life.

Love, Amanda

Hello Amanda,

Thank you for the mail you sent to me and i am very happy for you Amanda reading all what you said about your new wealth, now you are rich am really happy for you dear Amanda.

Now, that you are rich does not mean you can't help me out please i beg you my dear friend please, you know how much we have gone in this business transaction and if not for the financial support that we never have we would have finalize everything by now please Amanda i beg you. I know you don't need my money anymore but you can still help me receive the consignment and also help me with the $350 so i can send the keys to the consignment to you so that when the diplomat arrive your home you will open the consignment and pay him his delivery charges from the consignment and i will plan on how to travel down to U.S.A and start our life the way norma humans are living please Amanda i beg you.

I know you don 't need my money but now that you are rich you are the one i see as my helper and i also want you to know that our Lord jesusu christ used you as my helper that is why he borught us together so we could help eachother out, i never know you are going to be rich but God knows the best for us and now that you are rich $350 should be a very little money to you, so please Amanda i beg you to help me receive the consignment from the diplomat so me and my family can come over to your country please i beg you Amanda help me .

Lastly, Amanda, i want you to send me you full contact address where you live now and also your direct phone number where i can call you maybe if we talk on the phone you will understand my situation better please i beg you my dera friend you know we have been very good to each other ever since the very first start so i don't want you to turn me down please i beg you with the name of God have it in your mind to help me out please, what happened to you are the sign that our prayer is been aswered by our Lord who we have been praying to since all this while please Amanda don't let me down i beg you okay.

Hi, Michael!

I just got back from the Title Office, we closed the escrow this morning. The sale of Gramma's house and the land are officially closed and I got the money! Isn't that coooooool? I didn't even have to pay a RealEstate salesman a commission, because a man wanted to buy Gramma's place for a couple of years, but she didn't want to sell it, so now that she passed away, the guy jumped on it.

I went to the office with Phyllis Stein, (Gramma's lawyer, remember I told you how she helped me when I got in trouble at my cousin's funeral? By the way, the judge vacated the charges against me, and we just dropped the idea of a lawsuit. As it ended, I had to pay Mrs. Phyllis about $2,800 to go to court for me, but at least I won't have that on my record, that would be a serious bummer!) and we got the whole deal done in less than an hour!

Then we went to the bank, and talked to Miss Ann Thrope, she's real nice, and she'll be my personal banker, about my options. We looked at some investments, but I decided that the idea of just putting it all in a CD, and getting the interest to live on, would be a really smart idea for me. The interest rate is 4.5% so the money will earn me over THIRTY-FIVE THOUSAND dollars a MONTH!!! I can't believe that much money! I am just amazed, and Miss Ann says a CD is a good thing to have, and the bank will put the money to good use in the community.

So, as you can see, I don't need any more money, and you should really find a new partner to help you get the $15 million. Good luck.

Love, Amanda

Thank you for the mail you send to me and i all your memo was understood by me but Amanda, i still want you to know that i really need you help,i know you don't need the money anymore but with the kind of money you have you can still surport me financially and i could secure the consignment with you please i beg you my friend.

Hi, Michael!

Wow! I sure didn't expect to hear from you again. How are you doing, and your family? Were you able to get another person to help you get out of the refugee camp yet? I sure hope so!

The boys at school are all coming around me, trying to talk to me and ask me out on dates and stuff, now that I have a lot of money. I guess that's what Gramma meant when she said don't trust boys, "The all just want one thing!" was what she said, but I didn't know she meant money, I thought she just meant sex.

When I read your mail, I think you are saying that you want me to send you money, and "support" you. How can I do that? How much do you need to live on? I sure hope you don't think that I should send money to you all the time!

So, anyway, let me know how you and your family are doing, OK?

Love, Amanda

Date: Fri, 11 Apr 2008

Amanda,

Thank you for the mail you sent to me, i really appreciate you taking your time to write back to me that is really nice of you.

Amanda, regarding what you said about the boys ? i think gramma was right because allot of boys out there are after a girl because of the money she have and some do love because not every body thatr are the same but i will like to advise you to take time to study any boy you think you want to love because they might just want to toy with your feeling because they need your money and that will hurt you so bad so i will want you to study any boy you want to date and also don't be to proud to him because no man will love a girl who is to proud just because of the money she have and that will make them run from you and the ones that will stay will only want your money and after getting your money they will hurt you which you will not like it that way, so i will want you to put yourself down and don't feel too proud to men alright ? I am telling you all this due to the experience i had here in Africa okay.

Amanda, Regarding the financial assistance i needed from you, yes i really needed your assistance financially to live on and also to finance the transaction with anyone who agree to assist me out with this transaction... Amanda, i don't know how you will feel regarding this amount i am about to ask from you but if you can be able to assist me with all, just help me with any amount you can be able to raise for me to live on with my family until i am able to secure my funds oversea and start my life afresh..

Amanda, i will like you to assist me financial with $8,500 dollar and if you think you can be able to add more or if you can be able to send me the entire amount that is alright anything you can be able to send to me and my family will be higly appreciated by me alright, and if you want,i will pay you back as soon as me and my family leave this refugee camp when my funds has be secure with someone reliable and trustworthy then i will refund it back to you alright.

Please Amanda, if you want to to send the money, i will like you to send it to me via Western Union Money Transfer to the information below :

RECEIVER'S NAME : ODIRI . KEHINDE . ONOSIBELUO

ADDRESS : LAGOS - NIGERIA
TEXT QUESTION : COLOUR
TEXT ANSWER : BLUE
RECEIVER'S NAME : JOHNSON BENSON [We do not make these names up.]
ADDRESS : LAGOS - NIGERIA
TEXT QUESTION : COLOUR
TEXT ANSWER : BLUE

Please Amanda, if you want to send the money, i want you to send it to the two information written to you as below and i will advise you go to the western union store by yourself and don't send anybody to do it for you so as to avoid any mistake as it happened the last time you tried to send money to me for the keys to be send alright.

I will be waiting for your swift response with the receipt given to you from the western union store so i can be able to receive the money here alright.

Once again be careful with the way you live with people out there, don't open your secret to people because there is a saying that " ITS ONE WHO KNOWS YOU THAT PLAN AGAINST YOU " so be very careful okay ? and also be free to seek an advise from me even if it's a female to female advise i will seek from my wife to tell me what to advise you on alright.

Thank you and God Bless you my dear friend Amanda.

Michael, I think you are just like the boys at school. All you want is my money.

Gramma told me to be careful, but I never thought you would be like that, too! I thought you were my friend.

Amanda,

Thank you for writing back to me and i rally appreciate your effort towards my success. I am so sorry for not responding back to you since all this while, my little daughter was ill and i was with her with my wife in the hospital,so i could not access the internet from the hospital until now that she is doing well .

I am sending this message to you regarding the last mail you sent to me. Amanda, you know i am your friend and there is no way i can do anything bad to hurt you, i am not a man like other men out there, you have known me before you have this oppotunity to inherit gramma's properties after she died and we have been a good business partner before the death of your gramma but now that you are rich, you don't want to deal with me anymore but i told you i needed your support since you don't want to deal with me anymore and you are in the best position to help me out . Amanda, i will never do anything bad to you just because i want money from you because i have my own money just that i need a financial assistance to move the fund to somewhere secure until me and my family can be able to leave this refugee camp and live like a successful human beings that was why i asked for your support financially.

Amanda, all i am saying in my last email to you is that i want you to support me financially with $8,500 and i said if you think you cannot be able to support me with the whole $8,500 i am seeking from you, then you can send the entire amount you think you can be able to support me with if you think the $8,500 i am asking from you is too much then any amount you can be able to support me with will be higly appreciated by me and my family okay.. Amanda, you are my only hope please help me out so that i can finance myself moving this consignment oversea to somewhere safe before me and my family leave this refugee camp.

Amanda, i know you are trying to be careful but i want you to know that i will not come for more money after this , all i need from you is the $8,500 for me and my family to live on. Amanda, please i don't want you to think i am as bad as others as you know that i am like an adviser,brother and also a business partner to you and also don't forget that you and i were trying to be happy in future after this consignment has been delivered to you before the opportunity you have today came so don't think bad of me because i also have my money but all that is pulling me back is my inability to finance myself in my transaction that is why i said i am ready to pay you back the $8,500 when i have finalize my transaction where consignment will be secure and safe.

Amanda, ODIRI . KEHINDE. ONOSIBELUO is a friend of mine, he was the one who introduced me to the diplomat as i told you earlier before we started and as you know that i am only a refugee here and i don't have any form of identification that can be used to receive money here, i only have a refugee i.d and that cannot be used to receive money transfer here that was why i used the name ODIRI . KEHINDE . ONOSIBELUO as the receiver's name , so don't think i am trying to be funny to you, i have already explained this to you when you tried to send the $350 to me the other time you want to send money for the courier fee which i didn't get ? i guess you know the reason why i am using the name as the reciever's name so i don't want you to be worried about anything okay, i will get the money when you send it. all you need to do for me is send me the western union slip given to you from the western union store and i will get ODIRI so we can pick up the money.

Amanda, since you are in the best position to help me out, please i beg you not to turn me down as you know that we are good and understanding friends and partner right from the start and it will not be nice if you turn me down at this point as i have wanted you to be successful before the opportunity you have today so please don't let me down i beg you with the name of God you are the only hope me and my family have gotten and i pray that God will meet you at the point of your needs.

I will await your urgent reply soon with the western union slip given to you after sending the money via western union money transfer to me soi can be able to pick the money here alright.

Best Regards.

Michael

[The flip-off...]

Dear Michael,

I wasn't going to write to you again, but I have to tell you what happened.

I went to a dance at school, and I met a boy, and he is really nice. His name is Pierce Yerskine, and he's just a year older than me. He's going to the same college as me, so we have a lot in common. He's really cute, too, and he loves to dance, like me.

When we said goodbye, he asked me out on a date (I know Gramma might not like the idea of me dating a boy I just met, but she would like Pierce. He has good manners, and is polite, and everything! He's even introduced me to his mom and dad, they're real nice, too!) so he took me out to dinner, and we had a long conversation about everything under the sun!

When I told him I was writing to you, and that you have $15 million dollars that used to belong to Charles Taylor, he started laughing, and I thought he was laughing at me! I told him, "NO, it's really true, Michael's in a refuge camp, and he has a family, and all he needs is for me to send him some money to help him!"

Pierce told me that all the things you told me are LIES! It's all a scam, to try to get me to send money to you, and to think I almost sent you $8,500! You're a crook, and you have been lying to me all along. I hate you.

Quit writing to me. I'm closing this e-mail account anyway, so it won't make any difference if you write or not. Quit writing to me.

Amanda
