Hang Seng Bank
Fu Shan Mansion 25
Taikoo Shing Road,
Taikoo Shing Branch
Hong Kong.

Dear Friend,

May I be granted the opportunity to introduce myself, I am Mr. Mok Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of the Foreign operations dept of the Hang Seng Bank ltd,Taikoo Shing Branch.I have a obscured business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client General Aadel Akgaal Bastaan who was with the Iraqi Military forces,and also a business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 12 calendar months, with a value of Eighteen Million Euros only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, during the Iraq war. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that the General Aadel Akgaal Bastaan and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast. You can read more about the bombings on visiting these sites below:

1.http://www.ccmep.org/usbombingwatch/2003.htm#3/19/03
2.http://civilians.info/iraq/deaths_data.php

After further investigation it was also discovered that GeneralAadel Akgaal Bastaan did not declare any next of kin in his, official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Eighteen Million Euros is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 2 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my Suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to General Aadel Akgaal Bastaan so that you will be able to receive his funds.

WHAT IS TO BE DONE:

I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney thatwill prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to General Aadel Akgaal Bastaan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.
There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method and the Attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.
Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account the sharing ratio is open for negotiation for you.The percentage sharing will be 70%-30%,70% for me and 30% for your assistance.
Should you be interested please send me the following:
1.Full Names
2.Contact Address
3.phone number
4.Scanned copy of Identification

I shall provide you with more details of this operation. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,

W K Mok.

Capt. Fernando Santa Cruz

Mr. Mok,
I am in receipt of your e-mail. While I am always eager to accept a obscured business suggestion, I am not sure I can be of assistance to you. I am certainly sorry to hear about the misfortune of your client and his family. However, I'm afraid I am of no relation to General Bastaan and am not even of Iraqi descent. As such, I don't know how it would be possible for me to present myself as his next of kin. If you feel I can still be of assistance to you, please provide more details of my role in this transaction and I can forward my information to you. Otherwise, I wish you all the best with your pursuits.

Always,
Cpt. Fernando Santa Cruz



W K Mok

You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything legally required to ensure that the project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking, you have my word. Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days and you would have the eighteen million euros transfered to the online bank account you will open with my affiliate bank.The fact that you are not a relative of the deceased does not make it impossible for you to lay claims to the money.All documents will be prepared to back you up as the legal owner of the funds and as soon as I get your details I will instruct the lawyer to prepare the WILL PAPER.

READ THE FOLLOWING AND GET BACK TO ME:
Firstly, I will want to know precisely the type of occupation that you do and how old you are, you should note that this project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful, I need your total devotion and trust to see this through.

I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude. So you should listen to my instructions and follow them religiously.

Also You have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name as my bank will be aware that it is from me, this is where I need you.As result of this, you will have to open an account in the corresponding bank. I will obtain a certificate of deposit from my bank, it will be issued in your name, this will make you the bonafide owner of the funds. After this,the money will be banked online for both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of the lawyer to give the transaction the legal right. Before I commence,I will need you to send me a copy of any form your identification (Driver's licence Work ID or International passport) and your current address. I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person. As soon as I get these from you, I will commence the paper work.

Mr. Mok,

Thank you for the clarification of the details of this transaction. I understand your instructions. I have all of the information you need and will comply with your request. First however, I must be assured of your good intentions. As a fellow businessman, I'm sure you can understand why I would be hesitant to send my personal information over the internet without first being comfortable that the business venture is legitimate. As such, I will first request a few simple items from you:

1. a photo ID including your full name and/or title
2. documentation that this account/money actually exists and can be transferrable to me
3. information including phone, fax, and address of the bank at which I am to open an account

Please send these as e-mail attachments as I am currently on a mining expedition in Parador and will not immediately have access to fax or reliable phone service. As soon as I have these details from you, I will not hesitate to send you any information you need to help you complete this transaction.
Thank you sincerely.

Always,
Captain Fernando Santa Cruz


W K Mok

Dear brother,
Thank you for your quick response to my mail and your willingness to complete this transaction with me.I can understand your reasons for not providing me with your identification yet in that in any business venture you have to make proper verifications to know if the transaction is legitimate.For this reason I have attached to this mail a copy of my work ID and a clear picture of me and my family for your reference.And also a certificate of deposit of the said amount(18million euros)made in my bank by the late General is also attached to this mail which I have obtained to make you know the reality of this transaction.
Firstly talking about risks I should be the one to worry about that, my services in this bank for many years must be accounted for, I am not a fool, hence I have to be very careful and the most important factor is that you must maintain strict confidentiality of this transaction, keep it to yourself. I have sent your details to the lawyer who will put together the perfected paper work to be sent to the bank for the release and transfer of the funds, this should take not longer than a day or two.
In this light, I am sending you the details of the bank so that you can make enquiries on offshore/on-line account opening. The lawyer whom will perfect all the required documents for the filing in for the release of the funds to its beneficiary (next of kin). I want you to go ahead and contact the online bank that we are going to you use in this transaction and make enquiries on opening an online account with them. Tell them at the bank that you are expecting a large transfer of money from Hang Seng Bank in Hong Kong, Below are the contact details of the bank:

Contact Person: Hans Van Pluge
Name of fiduciary: Deluxe Finance And Security Company
Contact Email: luxfinancebv@netscape.net
Contact Tele/Fax: +3161-2177-117
+31 847 474 087(fax)

I advice you like I said earlier that you open an online account with the bank so that once the funds are released and I have transferred it successfully, they will be moved straight into your account that you open and the transfer will not attract the monetary bodies, as the transfer be will seen as in-house bank to bank transfer (because the online bank has the same telex type with my Bank).You can then transfer the funds in safe bits to your main account for both of us or transfer in bits to our individual accounts.
I will await an update. Please do make contact with the bank so that the account opening can be fast, email them preferably, and inform them you are expecting a transfer from Hong Kong and you will need to get an account opened ASAP.I call you brother so that we both understand that our trust in each other is that of blood brothers. God Bless you for your positive resolve to affect our lives.

Regards,
W K Mok.

Capt. Fernando Santa Cruz

Brother Mok,

Thank you for your response and photos. You have a truly lovely family. I am assuming that is your daughter seated on the left. I have a son about her age. In fact, I had to show this photo to him (don't worry...I didn't share any confidential details of our business...I only told him that you were an old friend and associate). He was quite taken by the poise and beauty of your daughter. Please brother, don't think this too forward...but may I ask if she is single? I do not see a wedding ring on her finger in the photo. I know this is a great favor to request, but does she have an e-mail address at which my son may write to her just to say hello? He is being quite persistent that I ask you for this. You know how children can be! Don't worry, he is very polite and well-mannered and I can assure you that he will treat your daughter with the utmost respect.

Anyway, on to the details of our business transaction. All of the paperwork seems to be in order. I shall contact the bank as you instructed. Hopefully my application for account will be approved quickly and we can conclude this transaction and share in the bounty of our newly found wealth and friendship. Until then, take care my friend.

Always,
Fernando

[ LOVE IS IN THE AIR, MY FRIENDS ]

Capt. Fernando Santa Cruz

Brother Mok,
What a wonderful and amazing coincidence! My son is also studying law back home in the US. You cannot imagine how excited he became when I gave him the news that your daughter is single and also a fellow student of the law. He is currently between school semesters and is with me now in Parador to help with my expedition. We are steadily progressing and feel we are near to uncovering the lost mine of Quetzaltananga. Very exciting to me!! I am an archaeologist by trade, in case you were wondering. I truly feel this partnership was meant to happen between us! You must tell me more about your daughter. What is her name? Where is she attending school? When will she be home to check her e-mail? Please forgive all my questions but, as I stated, my son is being very persistent. You know how those lawyers can be!!! I think he is concentrating more on your daughter than the important work at hand with our expedition. He is a good boy though, albeit very headstrong.

Anyway, on to our other business. Yes, I mentioned that I did e-mail the bank and they have responded to me and provided an account application form. I replied with a few additional questions so hopefully they will contact me again soon. Everything appears to be progressing very nicely.

I must apologize for the delay in sending my photo ID. I am in a very remote area at the moment and do not have access to a wireless scanner. Furthermore, it is monsoon season so on the rare occasion when electrical power is available, it is frequently short-lived. Thank goodness for my trusty wireless lithium hybrid laptop and satellite internet link! Otherwise, I would have no contact with the civilized world at all right now. In any event, we should be arriving in Bola del Babuino within the next couple of days and I will finally have access to a reliable electrical outlet (and a hot shower) so I will be able to send you a scan of my ID at that time. Until then, I shall say "swingbattabatta" which, in the local tongue, means "God Bless and may good fortune smile upon us".

Always,
Brother Fernando

Mr. Pluge,
Thank you for your quick reply and the plethora of information contained therein. I appreciate the many account options available and will discuss these with my business partner to see which option best suits our needs. We plan to make a very substantial deposit with your bank in the near future so your utmost professionalism and attention to detail will be greatly appreciated. That being said, one very crucial bit of information appears to be missing from your message...the website of your bank! As this is to be an online offshore account, my partner and I will be accessing our account almost exclusively via the internet, it would be very beneficial to us to familiarize ourselves with your website and the particulars of using our account online. As such, please send me the weblink to your bank and I will forge ahead with the opening of my account.

Thanks and kind regards,

W K,
Easy there friend, I have other business to attend to than just this so I cannot promise you a reply within minutes but I try to check my e-mail at least once every day or two if conditions allow. I'm sure you are already familiar with the details of this bank as you are yourself a banker and this is, after all, the bank that YOU personally chose and recommended.
I will be honest with you brother...I am more than a little concerned about the security and professionalism of this bank. In my correspondence with them (see forwarded message below) their representative told me that a hacker recently stole $120,000,000.00 from them! I have never in my life heard of a bank with such poor security and, frankly, I really don't want to take that kind of risk with our money. Furthermore, they will not even give me their website link so that I can make myself familiar with the online account options! Their customer service is truly lacking so I think you will agree that we should choose a more reliable and secure bank. Let me know what you think. By the way, I was finally able to scan my photo ID. Hopefully you should receive that as an e-mail attachment with this message.

Dear Mr. Spluge,
Upon reviewing the information contained in your reply, I shall inform you that my partner and I will likely choose another bank with whom to make our deposit. Frankly, your security record is of great concern to us. As I stated, we have a large sum of money to deposit and we will not want to take a chance by depositing that with a bank that has recently lost $120,000,000.00 to a hacker. Furthermore, you did not fulfill the simple and very reasonable request to provide me with a link to your website so that I may familiarize myself with your services. In fact, I did an internet search for your bank and wasn't able to find any information about it at all! As such, we will choose another more reputable bank that can securely and professionally meet our needs. Thank you for your time and best wishes on your future banking endeavours.

Mr. Van Plug,
I'm not sure how you do business there in the Netherlands but apparently it is very different from how we do things in the United States. For example, when I am shopping an automobile, I test drive it FIRST before I buy it. When I buy a pair of pants, I try them on to see if they fit BEFORE I buy them. The same is true in this case. When I am looking for a bank in which to invest a large sum of money, I look at the options available (including the WEBSITE I will be using for my online transactions) BEFORE I open the account. This is really quite simple logic. If you cannot understand this basic concept and provide this information to me, your bank is clearly inadequate to professionally handle the high dollar transactions my partner and I will have. So I ask you one final time...send me the website link to your bank so that I may browse over it to see if it meets my needs. If it does, I will proceed with opening an account. If not, I will move on to another bank that can assist me. Please do not waste any more of my partner's time and mine if you are unable or unwilling to provide this simple information.

Always,
Cpt. Santa Cruz

Hello Tracy,
My name is Samson Santa Cruz. My father tells me that he and your father are old friends. That does not surprise me as father has many friends around the world.

However, I have never seen a picture of you and your family until a few days ago. I must say that I find you absolutely beautiful. When my father told me that you were also studying law like myself, I knew that I had to get in touch with you. I'm not sure what kind of business my father has with your father but it sounds like they are both very excited about their transaction. Anyway, we are currently on expedition here in Parador. The weather is very hot and rainy and honestly I wish I was back home. It is difficult to sleep at night because of the conditions and because I have been thinking of you. Please tell me more about yourself...where are you attending school? What type of law are you studying? Tell me about your interests outside of school. I can't wait to hear from you soon.

Dreaming of you,
Samson

W K,
Can't talk long as the weather conditions here are miserable. Not sure what "first mail I received from the bank" you are referring to. I already forwarded you their response to my e-mail. I really don't think this bank can meet our needs. I admit I don't have the banking experience that you do but I have done more than my share of international banking and I am pretty familiar with how the process works. This bank was very unprofessional and would not even provide me a link to their website.
Also, I was unable to find any information about them when I did an online search. So I must insist that we look for a more reputable bank. I just don't want for us to take that kind of risk with our hard earned money. I have an international online account at Natwest Bank, one of the Big Four banks in the UK. I can send you the account details and we can hopefully complete our transaction quickly.
Let me know what you think.

Always,
Brother Fernando

P.S. Many thanks for the e-mail information for your daughter. My son was quite excited when I gave it to him.

Dearest Tracy,

How honored I am that you took time from your busy schedule to respond to me. Your words brighten my dark night like a giant firefly buzzing above me. It is lonely out here but my thoughts of you have kept me warm. I will tell you more about myself. I am 24 years old, studying law at the University of Illinois. Between semesters, I help my father with his expeditions. They are often very exciting and I get to travel the world.
And the financial aspect is very appealing also. Not to sound boastful, but I have made quite a lot of money with some of the items we have uncovered. Just last month, we found the lost treasure room of King Poonman of the Yucatan Alps. Although this discovery has not been widely publicized, my father and I made a small fortune because of it.
But I will be honest with you...at this point, I think I would trade all of the fortune and glory just to be with you for one evening. Maybe it's just my lonliness or the early stages of malaria, but my mind is concentrating on one thing now...and that is my dear Tracy. Unfortunately, I didn't think that I would need any photos of myself on this expedition so I didn't bring any with me to scan and send to you. I will look through my father's belongings to see if he has a photo of me that I can send to you. Otherwise, I promise you some photos as soon as I return home next week.
In the meantime, please write again soon. Please also send more photos...something to make me think of you even more. Tell me everything about yourself.
Darling,
you are my shining star. Until we speak again...

Your Samson

I am hoping you received these messages as there was much important information to consider. If you did not, let me know and I can attempt to send them again.

Dear brother,

I am glad to hear from you after you have not replyed several mails I sent to you.Am very surprised to know that you did not get my mails since and I wonder what went wrong because it is unheard of.Anyway I have not received any mail which you claim you sent to me and it seems you are not really serious with me the way I am with this transaction. I sent you the contact of another bank you are to make the activation of account since you had problems with the first. I want you to acknowledge the receipt of this mail before I send you the contact again as that was the most important mail I sent to you last week.Once again let me tell you that I did not receive any mail from you and please update me proper on the recent happening on your end.I hope all is well with you and your family?Have a blissful day.

Capt. Fernando Santa Cruz

Date: Mon, 24 Jul 2006

WK,
It hurts me for you to say that you do not think I am serious about our transaction. I guarantee that I always respond to any messages I receive. No, I did not receive any e-mail with details for another bank. Please send that to me again. Also, my son has sent two e-mails to Tracy and has not heard anything back from her so I wonder if maybe our internet link has been failing. That is very possible with the extreme heat and storms of the summer in Parador. We are making great progress on our expedition and have made profits of nearly half a million dollars. The natives never knew what hit them! Actually, I am growing very fond of the local women and am considering purchasing a summer home here. Of course you and your family will welcome to visit anytime.

Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you have decided to go with a different bank. I'm sure you agree that your first option could not adequately meet our needs. Please send me those details again and I can get this process back on track. Also, please ask Tracy to send again any messages that she had for Samson. Thank you brother for your patience.

My father said that we have been having trouble with our internet service. I am desperately hoping that this is the reason I have not received any messages from you lately. I am thinking about you constantly...how I cannot wait to meet you and share with you the fortune I am making. I wish to travel with you around the world... Paris, Monte Carlo, Cleveland...only the finest locations. Forgive me if this seems too forward. It's just that I feel a connection with you that I have never felt before and want to experience with you the best the world has to offer. Please tell me I am not alone in these feelings. I will be home this week and would love to talk to you more. Please let me know you are receiving my messages.

Date: Tue, 25 Jul 2006

Dear brother,

I got your mail and then I decided to go sort for another bank which has better services and which we are free to check out their site before opening an account with them.I was able to get the site to the bank and it is given below:

BANK NAME: Banco Caixa Catalunya
WEBSITE:http://www.caixacata.com/home2.htm

I want you to apply for an online account so that we can make this transfer possible this present week.As soon as the account is opened I will make the transfer from my bank as soon as possible.Do not worry about what you will spend to get this account opened because we are going to set aside %5 of the total money to settle all the debt we incured in the process of this transaction.I on my own part have incured the debt of about $15,000 to hire the services of the lawyer who is giving this project the legal backing and am hoping also on the %5 to pay back this money.All you have to do is to keep a proper record of all the money you spent because it will be reimbursed.Keep in touch with me on your findings from the bank soon.

Regards,
W K Mok.

I have sent to you the contact of the bank in my previous mail so please make contact with them soon and get back to me. Moreso let me know you received this mail by reply as soon as possible brother.Remember we have lost out in this transaction for a couple of weeks now and we cannot afford to keep wasting time.

Dearest Tracy,

Thank you so much for your quick reply. Your words make me feel as if the sunlight is again piercing through the smog and clouds of the city. I am overwhelmed with joy that you are experiencing the same feelings for me as I have for you. I cannot wait to send you my photos later this week. In the meantime, do you have more photos of yourself that you could send me? Perhaps, some that are of you alone. Not that you don't have a lovely family, but I want to focus entirely upon you.
Yes, I cannot wait to hear the dreams that you will share with me. I had a dream about you last night. We were frolicking like happy little elves under a beautiful waterfall. Suddenly I realized that I could not swim but you reached under the water to lift me out. Then you hoisted me onto your back and I rode you like a dolphin to the shoreline. It was truly magical and it made me angry to wake up. Anyway, thank you again for your message. I am thinking of you always.

Subject: The right choice
Date: Wed, 26 Jul 2006

Dear brother,

I am in receipt of your mail and am also glad that the bank will suit our needs for this transaction according to your observation.It is a wise choice you made by chosing a domiciliary account because of the volume of money involved in this transaction.As soon as this account is in full effect send me the account number and the swift code i.e all the full details of the account so that I can make the transfer of the 18million euros possible immediately.Like I told you in my last mail that we have little or no time to conclude this transaction judging by its nature.So that is why I want us to make the transfer out of my bank this week so that the other part of the transaction will be how to make the sharing and the uninon of our both families.The transfer of this funds from my bank will take between 24-48hrs so you need to act fast to get the account opened.
Let me use this opportunity to thank your son for being such a wonderful friend to my little girl like he promised. I guess they will find a good friend in each other.Reply this mail as soon as you get it so I know you where in receipt of it.

I really don't think there has been that much of a delay. It has only been since yesterday morning that I contacted my personal banker by e-mail (which is what he instructed me to do). I'm sure he is a very busy man and will be back in touch with me very soon. As I have said many times, I do not have reliable phone service here in Parador. It would be quite embarrassing to be talking on the phone discussing a multi-million dollar transaction with my new bank only to have my phone service be disconnected in the middle of a sentence. As I said, you are certainly welcome to contact the bank. I'm sure that you as an experienced banker would be much more familiar with the details of our transaction than I would anyway. Don't worry brother, we are making fast progress. I have no doubt we will complete this transaction very soon.

Dear brother,

Compliments of the day to you and your son and I hope all is well with your work.I got your mail and I know you do not understand properly the details supplied to you my brother.According to the informations you were given by the bank you are to make the payment for the activation of the account through this account details. After receiving your mail I made contact with the bank and I was told that the account informations given to you was the one you are to effect the payment for the account.You are to make this payment for the account according to the account fee for opening a domiciliary account.You need to do this because the account has to be active to make the transfer possible.I can decide to start the transfer right this moment but if it not an account which do not have active use it will bounce back and this will cause more problem for us.The only way to make thing easy is to pay the fees for the activation of account so that the account can be in full effect before I make the transfer from my end.

My brother do not worry about the money it will cost you to open the account because like I said before we are going to set aside 5% of the total money made in this transaction to settle any money spent during the course of this project.All you should do is to keep record and receipt of all the expenses you made on your end to make this transfer a success.I am also counting on the samething to pay back the $15,000 debt I have incured in this transaction and the lawyer is still asking me for more payment.I do not want to bother you with it because am taking care of the legal part of this transaction and I expect you to take proper care of the banking aspect. Please my brother act fast to get this account opened no matter what it takes because as soon as you do the transfer will be made immediately and this transaction will be successfully concluded.Always keep me updated on your recent dealings with the bank like you have maintain and my best regards to your son sam.

WK,
A storm knocked out all of our communication so I have been unable to e-mail for the past couple of days. I just now received your messages. There is something I am not understanding about the bank's instructions. If the account is dormant and no money can be transferred into it before it is open, how can I transfer the $16,000 activation fee into it? If I am able to transfer that much, surely we can transfer the full deposit.

Also, I have never heard of a bank that charges an account activation fee before you deposit money. Actually, my brother Pedro has a summer home in Madrid and has a pretty large account with Caixa Catalunya. I e-mailed him and he did not recall having to pay a fee to open his account. Something about this just does not seem right so I'm sure you can understand me wanting to clarify all of the details before sending any money to anybody. Please let me know what you think.

Sincerely,
Fernando

Dear brother,

I got your mail and I understand your reasons for being careful before making any payment.It show you are a man of thought and I like your curiosity in striving to get things done in the right manner.The account you choose is a domiciliary account and such account have to be activated before funds of such volume of cash is transfered into it.The said account cannot even receive the $16,000 get it clear that you are not making the payment into the account.The details given to you by the bank is a receiving account for online customers to make their payment through for the services the bank provide them.We operate the same banking system so I can undertsand these matters.

The bank is rendering us online service and therefore there is need for them to confirm payment for account before proper services in order to show your readyness.The account cost this much because it is an online services they are rendering to us,moreso you applied for a domicilary account which is very different from any normal account and you were right in your choice.My brother you have to know that all is well with this transaction and I am giving you my word that this bank will suit our needs.I have worked out different stragies to make all parties happy at the end of this transaction so you have nothing to worry about.

I must thank you for your effort in trying to make this business a success, I really would have loved to assist you but at present am very low in cash as I put thousands of dollars to get this transaction to its present stage. You might not be aware of what it takes to have such an amount transfered, especially being inherited funds, well let me make it clear to you that I have taken care of the cost of all the logistics that has to do with this transfer, such as the cost of retaining the services of the Attorney and obtaining the necessary official documents and clearances from the Hong Kong authorities,including other miscellanous expences which I had incurred to ensure we have a hitch free transfer.I dont intend to take any phase of this transaction for granted. Please do everything humanly possible to get your account ready to receive the funds, even if it means for you to get a loan do it as you will paid back with interest once the funds credits the account. This funds means the world to me and my entire family , as our whole life depends on it.

Actually for a person of your age and status and my partner in this transaction,I expect you to handle this issue of processing your account, I want the account processed between very soon so that I can go ahead with the transfer latest Thursday morning of my time.Am planning on relocating with my family to America and buying a big resturant for my wife over there and am depending on the gains from this transaction so my brother do not fail me.Less I forget,I hope you did not give the details of this transaction to your brother PEDRO for the nature of my work I do not want this transaction to lick out before the 18million euros is transfered out of my bank.

That all makes sense to me. I will contact the bank again today to arrange payment of the $16,000 activation fee. Don't worry, I didn't tell my brother any details of our transaction. I only asked him about his experience with Caixa Catalunya as I knew he was a longtime customer of that bank. He was very pleased with their service so I'm sure they will suit our needs wonderfully. I will keep you posted with any new details.

Still your bro,

P.S. I know you are eager to complete this transaction, as am I, but you really must be a bit more patient. You cannot expect an instant response to e-mails that you send me.

So my brother I want you to update me on the recent happening with you and the bank so that I know how to make the next line of action.Let me also use the means to assure you that you have a place in the heart of my family because your son now is a very special friend to my daughter which I least expected.And for this reason I have a strong believe that our meeting is divine.Once again thanks for your constant willingness to complete this transaction with me.

Beloved Tracy,

Trust me, you are not the only person feeling the wild-eyed craziness of love. You have been on my mind every moment since I first saw your picture. I am truly convinced that we were meant to meet. It wrenches my heart to hear that you are toiling away in a tiny restaurant just to make extra money for your family to survive. I long for the day, hopefully very soon, that we can share in my good fortune and live a life of luxury and hedonism. I am so overwhelmed by you that I was inspired to write you a poem. I realize that I am no great artist but somehow the words flowed freely from my pen thanks to your glorious inspiration. Please accept this as a humble token of my throbbing desire for you:

Dearest Tracy

Her eyes shine like a blinking beacon
I heard from her again last weekend
I read her words and my knees have weakened
She is my dearest Tracy

Her love is the potion that I choose
It makes me
higher than exotic booze
I would wrestle a lion and probably lose
Just to see my dearest Tracy

Her smile alone unlocks all my doors
All other girls your Samson ignores
I just keep on driving and say no to the whores
To save myself for my Tracy

Her body is like a temple of beauty
I breach her defenses and plunder her booty
If lovin's a crime, I'm guilty, so sue me
My heart is locked up by my Tracy

WK,
I must disagree with you as there IS still more information I need from the bank. True, I received the message with the account details that you sent to me again below. However, the e-mail from the bank stated that to deposit money through that account will take several days to clear but, and I quote, "should you decide to send it through more faster means please let us know so that we can advise you on that."
As I am eager to conclude this transaction as quickly and efficiently as possible, I simply asked them for these details as well as a few other details that any new bank account holder would be curious about such as additional perks and benefits of our account. I STILL have not received a response from the bank and honestly it is getting to be quite frustrating. I thought we FINALLY were dealing with a bank that could provide quality customer service but their lack of response to my simple questions is making me wonder about that. I have the money in hand and ready to send AS SOON as I get a reply and answer to my questions from the bank but not a moment sooner. Please remember, this is the bank that YOU chose. If we would have used my bank (which has impeccable customer service and ALWAYS answers my e-mails within hours) like I suggested, we would have completed this transaction weeks ago so please don't suggest that I am the one slowing things down. If anything, YOUR choice of banks has delayed us. Surely you can't expect me to blindly send $16,500 to a bank that will not even reply to my e-mails. I will write to them one more time. The ball is in their court my friend.

My friend,
I do not know how to say this more plainly. I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO RELIABLE TELEPHONE SERVICE. Right now, I am sitting in a small camp in the middle of the third largest rainforest in northwestern Parador. The nearest village is about 60 miles away and that consists of little more than a few small shacks and half a herd of goats. The nearest city with any kind of services is about a week away by horseback. My method of communication when I am in the field is my satellite internet link which does not rely on phone service and is unaffected by the harsh conditions of my surroundings. I understand that these conditions are difficult to imagine for somebody like yourself who works 9 to 5 in a nice office at a bank. Sometimes I envy that lifestyle but then I realize it is simply not for me.

Caixa Catalunya is one of the largest banks in Europe. Surely they have somebody on staff who can respond to an e-mail sent by a prospective customer who is wanting to deposit several million dollars with them. If not, then we really must take our services elsewhere. My questions are not complicated and it would not take more than ten minutes for a representative to answer them. If they are not willing or able to extend us that simple courtesy, they are not worthy of our business my friend. As I said, I have the money in hand and ready to send immediately but not before they respond to me. It is simply a matter of politeness if nothing else. Thank you for your well-wishes to my family and may I extend the same warm greetings to yours.

You must be joking of course. I wrote to them in Catalan which is my native language. I can remember the summers in Barcelona with my brother Pedro as if they were yesterday. Caixa Catalunya is the largest bank in Catalonia and was founded by and specifically FOR Catalan speakers. Native Catalonians are very proud and independent people and would NEVER consider speaking to each other in any language but the mother tongue. It would be an INSULT even to suggest it. That is why I was very excited that you chose this bank. I have never written to them in English and never would. If they tell you that they do not understand this language, I'm afraid that they either have a very strange sense of humor or that they are trying to scam us my friend. I will be honest...the bank's reply to you makes me VERY worried about this transaction. Let me know what you think.

Always,
Fernando

Hottest Tracy,
You must stop saying these things as you are driving me positively insane with desire. I am doing things that I would laugh heartily at others for attempting. Just last night, I built a life sized dummy of you out of balsa wood, gardening gloves, and two ripe coconuts. Yes, I know this sounds strange but I just needed to pretend that I was holding you close as I drifted off to sleep. This morning everybody was giggling at me as I pulled countless splinters from my body. But it was worth it just to imagine you for a moment. I must see you soon my angel of sweet sweet lovingness.

Your devoted servant, Samson

WK,
I meant no insult to you. I am only trying to look out for your best interest. I simply meant that I thought the bank must be joking as there is no conceivable way that a Caixa Catalunya account representative would be unable to understand and reply in their native language of Catalan. Apparently you agree that this is very suspicious as you have now sent me details for another bank to deal with. By my count, this will be the FOURTH bank that I have made contact with. My brother, I truly hope that you have chosen one that is competent this time. I have taken much time from my busy schedule in attempting to do everything you have asked of me to help you with this transaction. I even had the money in hand to send to the bank.
I am growing very frustrated with the lack of professionalism in these banks you are having me contact. I have completed hundreds of international transactions with banks, some involving very large amounts of money, and I have never had to spend more than a day or two AT MOST on these details. I truly hope that this bank will be able to meet our needs and reply to my inquiries efficiently and skillfully. As always, I will keep you updated with any details.

Always,
Fernando

WK,
I think we have finally found success my friend! I e-mailed my brother Pedro to see if he had heard good things about Banco Pueyo. It turns out that our old family friend Don Montana de Frijoles is actually the Vice President of the main branch in Madrid. What a wonderful and lucky coincidence! I e-mailed him this morning. He was so happy to hear from me as it has been a couple of years since I last spoke to him.
I told him that I needed to get an account open quickly for a large money transfer from overseas. Don't worry, I didn't give him any details of our transaction. In a matter of minutes, he was able to open for me the finest account the bank has available for such matters. Now THAT is customer service my friend! Those other banks certainly could take a lesson from Banco Pueyo. Anyway, I'm sure you will find this very exciting news as there is now nothing to hold back finalizing this transaction. Just let me know what details you need from the account and hopefully we can have this ordeal concluded in time for an early dinner. My best as always to you and your family.

Your
friend,
Fernando

[ SAMSON ATTEMPTS TO SEAL THE DEAL...I ALWAYS CRY AT WEDDINGS ]

Samson Santa Cruz

Dearest Tracy,

I assure you that my feelings for you are as real as the moon over Parador at night. I have never in my life been so completely enraptured by another person. It seems silly because I have only seen two photos of you and read your messages but I feel as if I know everything about you and you know everything about me. Oh what a feeling! It's as if angels have danced a forbidden tango upon my heartstrings. Yes, my father keeps mentioning the business deal he is working on with your father. He won't tell me any details about it but that is his business anyway and none of my concern. He seemed very excited about it this morning so hopefully they are close to success.
Regardless of how that turns out, I want to bring you to visit me in America. I have plenty of money of my own and it doesn't really matter what business my father has. When can you come to visit me? I will pay for your plane tickets and any other expenses you have. Such a small price to pay to finally have you next to me.
Just one request...PLEASE send me more photos. Just of you alone. You can have a friend take some pictures of you and e-mail them to me. The most wonderful gift you could give me would be a photo of yourself holding a sign that says "Mrs. Tracy Santa Cruz". What a lovely sound that has!!! Talk to you again soon my delicious bringer of sweetitude.

Your Perpetual Stallion,
Samson

WK,
Here are the account details that you requested:

SWIFT Code: BAPUES21XXX
IBAN Number: 2100 0418 45 3825968419
Bank Branch: Madrid Home Office
Account Representative: Sr. Don Montana de Frijoles VP

As I said, Don is an old friend of mine and will be very eager to assist us with anything we need. Well, this should be everything you need to complete the transfer. Let me know when you have sent the money and once it is confirmed in the account, we can distribute it as earlier agreed. Many thanks again for this opportunity and my best as always to you and your family.

Always,
Fernando

WK,
I checked this morning and the money still has not been deposited into our new account. I trust that you received my message yesterday with all the account details? I expected that you would want to effect this transfer immediately so I was a bit surprised this morning when it had not been done. Please keep me updated as to your progress, my friend. Let's conclude this today.

Always,
Fernando
