FROM TRALFAMADOR TO YOUR DOOR

finis may 4 2005

Greetings!

It was great coming across your website and it gave me the impetus to join ranks and write to a scammer.
Below is the current state of the correspondence.

I feel pretty happy that I've had them make a few phonecalls and apparently send a DHL package for $85... Not bad for a first effort.

The phone number and address I give them are for a fraternity house in Ames, Iowa (I figured they would be able to answer the phone at just about any hour...). The bank and bank account number and all the banking information is just made up.

Kilgore Trout and Curt Vonnegut are both me (of course).

Characters:

Kilgore Trout - our hero
Curtis Vonnegut - our hero's attorney
[I used "Curtis" instead of Kurt to hide the obvious - but in hindsight it makes no difference to this crowd...]

Susan Shabangu - scammer
The real S.S. is Deputy Minister for Safety and Security in South Africa.
Oki Nzeagali - Susan's barrister in London
Teresa Moore - Managing Director of the Finance House in London
Dr. Edward Olanrewoju - National Bank of Nigeria
Michael J Spinner - National Office On Terrorism &Money Laundry - Not yet clear what nation this National Office represents

[Note the scammer's slap at Bernie Ebbers partway through.
Corruption in high places continues to be the scammers' excuse for scamming everyone, big or small.]

MRS. SUSAN SHABANGU

Deputy Minister Safety and Security
South Africa

Dear Friend,

After due deliberation with my children, I decided to contact you for your assistance in standing as a beneficiary to the sum of US$3.5M (Three Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) First, let me start by introducing myself, I am MRS SUSAN SHABANGU, a mother of three children and the Deputy Minister Safety and Security since 1st April 1996 to date under the President of South Africa MR THABO MBEKI. You can view my profile at my website

http://www.gov.za/gol/gcis_profile.jsp?id=1066

After the swearing in ceremony making me Deputy Minister Safety and Security, my husband Mr Ndelebe Shabangu died while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago in 2002. After his death, I discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which mounted to the sum of US$3.5M with FINANCE SECURITY HOUSE .

This fund emanated as a result of an over-invoiced contract which he executed with the Government of South Africa. Though I

assisted him in getting this contract but I never knew that it was over-invoiced by him. I am afraid that the government of South Africa might start to investigate on contracts awarded from 1998 to date. If they discover this money in his bank account, they will confiscate it and seize his assets here in South Africa and this will definetely affect my political career in government.

I want your assistance in clearing this money from FINANCE SECURITY HOUSE. As soon as the fund is cleared, you are expected to move it immediately into another personal bank account in your country. I will see to it that the account is not traced from South Africa. As soon as you have confirmed the fund into your account, I will send my eldest son with my Attorney to come to your country to discuss on business investments.

For your assistance, I am offering you (Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) However, you have to assure me and also be ready to go into agreement with me that you will not elope with my fund.

If you agree to my terms, kindly as a matter of urgency send me an email. Due to my sensitive position in the South African

Government, I would not WANT you to call me on phone or send a fax to me. All correspondence must be by email to my private email.

If you want to speak with my Attorney, that is fine and okay by me. His chambers will be representing my interest with you. All correspondence must be made either to my Attorney Barrister oki nzeagali of oki chambers or send me an email to my private email box on susan000tsamail.co.za I will also like you to give me your contact address of telephone, fax and email

to enable my Attorney call or reach you from time to time.
Please I do not need to remind you of the need for absolute Confidentiality if this transaction must succeed. YOU MUST NOT CALL ME! If you do not feel comfortable with this transaction, do not hesitate to discontinue.

Thanks for your anticipated co-operation and my regards to your family.

Yours faithfully,

MRS. SUSAN SHABANGU

Deputy Minister Safety and Security
South Africa

Dear Ms. Shabangu,

Thank you for the email. I still think there must be some mistake, since I have never heard of you until your recent email. But if I can be of some assistance, I would be happy to do what I can. I'm especially sad to hear about the loss of your husband and the distress that your children must feel.

I've never been to Trinidad and Tobago, but I would enjoy a vacation. We're just coming out of the cold winter here in Iowa and the fields won't need to be planted with corn for a few more weeks - so I have some time for a holiday. Do you have an address for the Finance Security House in Trinidad? Or is it in Tobago? I don't want to go to the wrong island. I can stop there while vacationing and help with your transaction.

Have you been to Trinidad or Tobago previous to your husband's tragedy? I understand the beaches in the Carribbean are beautiful.

I'll be searching expedia.com for flights and hotels and will await information on the particulars.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kilgore

Dear kilgore Trout

Thanks for your mail and your willingness to assist me in securing my late husband fund.Let be start that based on your intergrity of your person,i believe that you will not betray me now or in future.

For us to perfect the claim in your favour,you are to send to me your full name,address,phone and fax number if any. With these information i will ask my lawyer to write a favourable latter to the bank in your favour as the claimant/beneficiary of the fund on my behalf.

Meanwhile,You should understand that this transaction requires secrecy as it is stipulated/obligatry because of my position in govt. Though,the fund was over invoiced by my late husband who was a govt contractor before his untimely death late 2002.

However,i want to asure you that this transaction is 100%hitch free and can not ignite any fire now or in the future as the document to back the claim will be obtain and subsequently send to you for your perusal.

Thanks once again as i wait your response.

Regards,

Dear Mrs. Shabangu,

Thank you for your quick reply. As long as this information is only for your attorney to use in his paperwork, fine. I want don't want to have it spread around - with all the worries of identity theft that I read about in the newspaper I'm very careful with my personal information. But if it will assist in the recovery of your $3.4 million and my $700,000, then I suppose it's ok.

And you failed to answer my question about the Finance Security House. And I'm also confused about whether it's a security house or a bank like you mention in this recent email. I need the Finance Security House address and I also need to know if it is located on Tobago or Trinidad? The islands are close - but my travel arrangements need to be clear. Will your attorney also be coming to the Carribbean to meet me or will he just be sending the documents that I need? Please clear this up for me, I'm anxious to make my vacation plans.

Here is my information. Again, I trust that you will keep it confidential.

I don't have a fax machine - I think only businesses need them. I'm just a farmer.

Dear friend,

Thanks once again for your urgent response.

Though the fund was deposited in London with a security and finance house not in trinidad and tobago,it was on his way to trinidad and tobago that the incident happened which took his life.

Meanwhile the information sent to me has been forwarded to my attorney to enable him obtain the affidavits of claim from the federal high court of johannesburg on your behalf,with this you will be recognised by the security company as the rightful bonafide of the fund.

Based on the address of the security and finance house will not be disclose to you for security purposes,simply because we needed to establish a concrete rapour on this transaction. Although,it might interest to know that as soon as the my attorney secure the documents on your behalf which he will send to you for your perusal also the detail of the security company will be forwarded to you to enable you contact them for the final process of the fund.

My dear friend i strongly believe that with little or no distance time we shall reap with joy.Therefore i count on you to conclude this transaction within this short period of time,secondly the issue of a good site for the farmland will not be a problem,i can assure you that once we are through with this transaction you will visit south africa for the purchasing of

the land.

I await your urgent response.

SUSAN.

Susan,

Thank you for clearing up those issues. I guess I'll have to put off the vacation to Trinidad and Tobago for another time. Probably just as well as the weather here in Iowa has improved and I'll soon be out in the fields planting corn and soybeans. Farming is dependant on the weather - not the other way around!

It sounds like you and your attorney (I don' t think I caught his name) have everything under control. Just let me know what you need from me.

And thank you for looking into the farmland situation there. It could be very handy having a farm in the southern hemisphere - I can farm here in Iowa during our summer and then go to South Africa to farm during your summer. I love farming.

Thank you again and I await word from you or your attorney.

Here's the email from the lawyer in regard to that situation I mentioned to you at church yesterday. Could you look it over and be sure everything looks OK. I'd like to help Susan get the money that's due her.

As you know - I'm a good farmer but not much of an expert with legal stuff. I'm not sure what an "Affidavite of Transfer" is - but I hope we can do it without me having to go to London. I have 800 acres of corn to plant and all the soybeans too.

Mr. Nzeagali,

Excellent progress! Please keep me informed of developments and of anything I can do to help. I look forward to receiving the affidavite tomorrow.

Please also send a copy of the affidavite to my attorney Curtis Vonnegut, Esq. ret. at "Curt Vonnegut".

I think you would call him a solicitor - or is it a barrister? I never could understand the British legal system even though I watch a lot of educational TV - have you ever seen a TV show called Rumpole of the Bailey? It's from the BBC. I'm sure you'd enjoy it - Rumpole is a real character!

And did you have to wear a black robe and wig when you were at the high court yesterday? Is that mandatory or is that just something they do on TV? Please let me know the answer.

I'll be consulting with Mr. Vonnegut when it comes to the legal matters and I'll cc him on this email. He's a close personal friend and can be trusted in all things confidential. I've briefed him about the situation already and he has consented to assist me.

Dear Susan,

Now that the attorneys are taking care of this monetary transaction (I put my attorney in contact with yours and I hope they can get everything done as quickly as possible) - I would like to further investigate the prospect of farmland in your country. I understood that you were looking into the possibility of my buying land there.

Have you had any luck in finding a farm that might be appropriate for me? Is there anyone that you can connect me with that is in the real estate business who deals in farmland? What is the average price of a farm similiar to mine - 1600 acres? Do you use acres in South Africa or hectares or something else? Are there restrictions on a foreigner buying land? I really appreciate your offering to help me with this.

Thank you very much for your assistance and I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you Kilgore and greetings Mr. Nzeagali.

I think it would be prudent to have all legal documentation reviewed in advance of any stipulation by my client (that's you Kilgore). So, Mr. Nzeagali, please forward this affidavite and any and all other documentation or requests to my attention and I will advice Mr. Trout on what is in his best interests. In a matter like this, dealing with a very large sum of money, it's best to be careful. I'm sure you agree.

I am retired from active practice, but still advice some friends and family when there is a need. This seems like a very typical example.

I also enjoyed the Rumpole series on BBC TV and I hope you've seen them Mr. Nzeagali. It's always been a dream of mine to one day visit the Old Bailey in London.

Mr. Nzeagali, are you a barrister and not a solicitor? That seems odd - I would think this business is more in the solicitor line of work. Do you have a solicitor that you work with in London? Might I ask his name?

I await further instructions and documentation from you.

On closer inspection, it appears that you need to execute a revision of the affidavit of transfer. Ms. Shabangu's first name is "Susan" I believe - not "Suzan" as mistakenly entered on the affidavit you forwarded to me. I doubt that getting the name approximately correct is acceptable in a court of law - it needs to be accurate.

Please make that change, have the affidavit re-sworn, and a copy of the revised affidavit forwarded to me. Then we can continue with the letter of claim.

Thank you.

I am Mr. Kilgore Trout, A citizen of United State of America, acting on the capacity of trust and ownership of the said deposited fund.

The depositor is well known to me and Mr. Oki Nzeagali is the attorney that witnesses the deposit. The depositor is late. The late Ndebele Shabangu and I are business partners before his untimely death.

Before his death we agreed in principal that he deposit the fund with Equity Security & Finance in London and take a trip from there to Trinidad & Tobago where on was involved in crash and he lost his life.

I am in trust the benefactor of the deposited fund and the total amount is $3.5Million. The purpose of this fund was purchase plots of land for farm.

I therefore ask for the release this money so that the widow of my late partner can see to the up brings of her children.

I hereby attached the two copies affidavit sworn to in respect of this by the attorney.

Act on as quickly as possible.

Dear Mr. Nzeagali,

Yes, all is fine here. I followed your instructions and sent the signed documents (all three of them) to the address you gave me via air mail with a return receipt request - registered mail or something like that (the man at the post office helped me with it - I didn't really understand the technicalities). It cost $12 (a small investment for a big return). I put them in the mail last Thursday, March 24th and am waiting for a reply or a return of the receipt saying they were received by the Finance House.

It seems like all is going as it should - though there will probably be a delay until the mail gets delivered - it's slower than email, that's for sure. I was thinking it would take about 4 or 5 days in each direction. I hope they send the information back by air mail - a boat would take much longer!

Hope all if fine with you.

Dear Mr.Trout,

Thanks for your mail. It is for the interest of this transaction that i demanded you to send the application through attachment to aviod a lot of people handling the papers.

There is this problem of mail delivery in Europe and Africa, therefore, for this reason it will be better if you can give me the receipt of sending the letter so that i can submitt it to the financial house for tracking or send it to financial house by the means of attachment so that they can monitor the delivery, otherwise it will be returned to you the sender that they are unable to locate the address.

A second option is that you forward the same copy of the application to the financial house via attachment so that they will start work on that and make payment immidiately.Let us not continue to wait for the posted one becouse that will take alonger time to come.

Thank you again for the Project.I expect your quick reaction on this mail.

Mr. Nzeagali,

Well, this is confusing. I assumed that the Finance House would need a signed document to release funds as large as this - not just some attachments to an email. I even had Billy Pilgrim down at the post office notarize my signature so that it was official.

And you tell me there are problems with the mail delivery in London? Is there a strike by the postal workers? They have a very strong union and I've heard of problems like that before. I hope that's not the case.

I have the receipt, and would be glad to send it to you - do you have an address where I can mail it or do you think the postal problems are too serious to even try that? I don't have one of those scanner things to send you a copy via email. Sorry.

Let me know what you think is the best course of action. I think it would be best for me to just mail the receipt to your address and you can take it to the Finance House. Or we can wait to see if the envelope gets delivered (it was sent registered mail, so I think it should be safe). But you know best and I'll follow your instructions.

Thank you.

Susan, Thank you for your email. As I told Mr. Nzeagali previously, I don't have a fax machine. There might be one over in Capital City, but with Spring here, most of my time is spent with planting crops - I'm a farmer. I doubt that I'll be able to get over there until Sunday and I'm not sure if the Kinko Copy Center (they have a fax machine) is open on Sunday.

I have the documents here and they are signed and notarized. Could I just put them in an envelope and mail them to you? From here to Illinois (where your USA office is located based on the fax telephone number) should only take one day - or two at the most. So you should have it on Wednesday.

I mailed the documents to your London office (the address in the letterhead) about a week and a half ago - so they should arrive soon. I sent the letter via registered mail and the tracking number is 3329483-324-5a (I'm not sure if that helps from your end or not). I would think the letter would be in London by now - I sent it airmail.

Or I could email the documents to you as attachments - but I would think that you would need a signed document to release a sum of money as large as this. As it is, Mr. Nzeagali has all the documents as files and I'm sure he can submit them to you - since they aren't signed, I can't really see what difference it makes where they come from. And I believe he's located in London right now and maybe he could meet you over a cup of tea to transfer the papers.



Please advise. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kilgore Trout

Attention.Mr Kilgore Trout

Thank you for vivid explanation in respect of your situation at this particular time of the year as a farmer. You can send the document via attachment either through your lawyer Mr Oki Nzeagali or to the finance house here. This will show clearly your signature.

Try as much as you can to find a place where you can do this. But if can also send it without the signature, then your lawyer will be invited to sign under the colunm where you surposed to endorsed. This will be acceptable for the paymernt.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms. Moore,

Since I have no way to add my signature to the document and then be able to send it to you as an attachment - I will defer to Mr. Oki Nzeagali and have him sign under the column for endorsement. The first thing I will buy with the funds from this project is a computer scanner so I can scan documents in the future!

I am attaching the three files. The original Title document. The revised Title document correcting the spelling of Susan Shabangu's name. And the Managing Director document that Mr. Nzeagali will need to endorse. I hope that is sufficient.

Have you received the envelope with these documents that I sent almost two weeks ago? I will check at the post office the next time I'm in town to see if they have any news on that registered envelope. For $12 I would think they should have delivered it by now. Especially since it was sent via registered air mail.

This is the address I sent it to - I assume it's correct since it was on your letterhead:

Managing Director,
Equity Security& Finance Ltd
London House, FirryShipon STR

Thank you for all of your assistance.

To: "Teresa Moore", "Oki Nzeagali", "Susan Shabangu"

I've made a big decision in my life and I'd like to thank all of you for helping with it.

In anticipation of the $700,000 windfall related to helping Susan I have decided to sell the farm and follow my life's dream of being an author of science fiction stories. I've always been good with stories and think that this is a great opportunity to follow my dream.

I have an offer on the farm from a neighbor and will be able to sell it for a very good profit. The deal will be final next week.

And with the money from helping Susan, I should be comfortable for the next few years to do some serious writing. I've been working on my first book "Venus on a Half-Shell" for several years, but this will give me the time to devote to it and get it completed. I'll miss farming, but to be a science fiction writer has been a dream for many years.

Again, I'd like to thank all of you for your help in changing my life.

Thankfully,
Kilgore Trout

That is a very big decision Kilgore. I hope that it isn't being made prematurely. There's an old saying about not counting your chickens before they hatch. But I'm sure everything will work out fine with this financial transaction and you'll be able to live your dream.

If you need any legal assistance with the farm sale, please don't hesitate to call me.

Good luck!

Be informed with this mail that Mr. Oki Nzeagali has carried out the endorsement exercise in our office at 11.00gmt today. Could you please advice this finance house how you want the fund get you. There are only two options that is operated here: The remittance option or The cash payment option.

Your advice on the above will be appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mrs. Moore,

Excellent!

Could I please get a copy of the recently executed endorsement and a statement of the balance of the account that you are holding for me? I like to be sure that all the paperwork is in order and I'd like to have my attorney review them for me.

Have you received the envelope with the documents that I sent two weeks ago via registered mail? I'm very concerned that they have gone astray. Please let me know. If not, I'll have to have the post office do a tracer on the item.

As for the transfer of funds, whatever would be more convenient for you is fine with me.

I will be closing the sale of my farm next week, so I would be free to travel to London (I've always wanted to see Big Ben) if that's necessary for the cash payment option (I assume you mean actual cash - I'm not sure about coming back through customs with suitcases of cash though - will it be in dollars or pound sterlings?).

Or it might be better to use the remittance option to my bank, Trafalmadore State Bank in State Center, Iowa. I can send you whatever information you need to complate that transfer.

Thank you.

Mrs. Moore,

Once again you ask me about the distribution of the funds and I will again answer your question (as I have twice before - see below).

As I stated on April 7 and reinterated on April 11 in the attached emails - "As for the transfer of funds, whatever would be more convenient for you is fine with me." If, for some reason, I need to choose one or the other, then the bank remittance would be easiest and preferable. But the cash option is also acceptable.

I hope that makes my position clear.

Dear Mrs. Moore,

A couple other things that I forgot to ask.

Will the money be in dollars or in pounds sterling or in South African money? Or maybe those new Euros? I think the bank will probably need to know this so there's no confusion. I just sold the farm, so there's a large balance in there already and I'd hate to have the new currency get mixed into the current money.

And did you ever receive the registered letter I sent several weeks ago with the signed and notarized documents? I mailed it to your London office (the address in the letterhead) via registered mail and the tracking number is 3329483-324-5a. I sent it via air mail and it must be there by now. Have you received the documents? Should I put a tracer on the envelope from my end or can you do that from there? I'd hate to have important documents like that get into the wrong hands.

Thank you for your assistance.

Well, I'll have to stop down at the bank and get that info. I'm sure they'll know what a "swift code" and a "routing code" are. I hope I can get to the bank tomorrow - but if not I'm sure I can stop at the bank early next week. I'm busy with my new writing career.

I'm currently working on a story about a spaceship that lands on Machu Pichu in South America and believes it has found a planet with no existing intelligent lifeforms. If you have any ideas for good science fiction stories, please pass them along.

Please let me know if you find anything out about the parcel. I'll start a trace on this end too. I'd hate to have those documents fall into the hands of the wrong kind of people. You have to be careful now days.

They said I would have to fill out a government form for a wire transfer this large - something to do with terrorists. Do you know anything about that?

It is unofficial to send mail via attachment to clients/customers from the bank but we are doing this based on the briefed received from Equity Security and Finance that you did not have a fax line.

Dear Dr. Olanriwaju,

Thank you for your prompt action on this account. I have consulted with my accountant and he requires a certified invoice for the .2% of the claim. He says an email is not sufficient to have him release the funds.

Could you please send me a notarized invoice via registered mail so that he can cut the check to send to you? I assume a certified check drawn on Tralfamadorian State Bank would be acceptable? My calculation is that it will be $7,000 - is that correct?

Once he receives the notarized invoice for the .2% he assures me we can send the check the same day. IÕd send it today, but he says we need backup documentation due to tax laws here in the United States and that an email isnÕt good enough for the government. I assume he knows what he's talking about.

I also understand that the transfer will be in US dollars. Is that correct? This transaction started in South Africa, then England and now Abuja. With all of these countries, I want to be sure that there's no confusion about the actual currency type. Where is Abuja? My geography knowledge isn't really very good.

I urge you to use registered mail since I had a very bad experience with mail being lost in transit to London recently (and that was sent registered!).

I have attached my mailing address below.

Thank you very much.

Dr. Edward Olanrewoju

Date: Wed, 20 Apr 2005
Attention: Mr. K. Trout,

This is a response to your answered mail. Let me explain again to you the reason of the 0.2%: You are correct with your calculation. The $7,000 is not coming to the bank here and it not meant for the bank.

In my letter to you explaining this clearance, I made you to understand the payment will made in the office of the Director, Anti Terrorism and Money Laundry Matters. This bank is only going to act on the presentation of the clearance.

The litigation Department of this bank can only help in making sure that the clearance is carried out within 24hours after payment.

ADVISE: The risk involve in sending registered mail these days is very high and it is not advisable to send out check via the same method, the check might be intercepted and be used to defraud your account. This is my knowledge as a banker.

You do not have anything to worry about, what you have to do is for you to issue the check to your bank in your name, withdrew the $7,000 and send it to the head of legal department of the bank here who will help you to carry out the clearance in your name. Why I urge you not to worry is that I have found out that one of the most known attorney in Africa is representing you in this financial matter , therefore you are protected.

The 3.5million is in U.S Dollars.( American Dollars ). Abuja is in West Africa and it is and it controls the financial base of African Countries. The Name of the head of Legal department is Mr. OJUGO LUCKY. The $7,000 should be sent to him via the Western Union Money Transfer. He will receive it that same day it is sent.

Western Union Money Transfer is allover America. It is the safest and more convenient to send. This is the Information to use while sending it:
Receivers name: Mr. OJUGO LUCKY
Address: National Bank Abuja, Nigeria
Amount $7,000

Test Question: What?
Answer: For Clearance.

You may sometime not allow sending the $7,000 at once; in this case you have to split it by sending it twice in the amount of $3,500. As soon as this is done, you will send the following details: Senders Name, Senders Address, the payment Control Number. If you are allowed to send it once go ahead.

Yours faithfully,
Dr. Edward Olanriwoju

Thank you for your advice on not sending the check by mail. It appears that using Western Union is a much safer option and that's what I intend to do once the minor paperwork problems get straightened out.

Thank you again for your assistance.

Kilgore Trout

Date: Thu, 21 Apr 2005

Dear Dr. Olanriwoju,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I'm fine with sending the money to Mr. Lucky via Western Union or however you desire. But my accountant insists that we need proper documentation for tax purposes. He says that an email asking for the funds is not sufficient and that we need a certified request for the funds. He seems very steadfast in his insistence on this.

If you could send me a notarized invoice or other request for the funds (maybe the form or paperwork from the Director, Anti Terrorism and Money Laundry Matters would be easiest), I can use Western Union to send the money to you. It should only be a short delay (with air mail now days it shouldn't take more than a week for the letter to arrive here). With the recent sale of my farm the $7,000 is readily available.

I'm sorry for the problem - but my accountant is the one I rely on for financial advice and I would hate to have my taxes out of order.

Thank you for your understanding of this issue.

Sincerely,
Kilgore Trout

Thank you for your efforts. I'll await the DHL document (I hope it doesn't meet the same fate as my letter to London a month ago - we still haven't found it and I'm starting to get concerned). Three or four days means it should arrive early next week sometime.

Once I have the document, I'll give it to my accountant and everything should be wrapped up quickly. He's a stickler for details.

I am often away from the house doing research for my latest book (I've given up farming to become a science fiction author). Please keep trying to reach me by phone - I would like to hear your voice and work out any details that might still require resolution. You might want to try calling late at night - I won't mind being woken up regardless of the hour.

Dear kilgore

First I want to apologize for not writing to you all these while. However, our lawyer has been given me first hand information.

I have decided to come in here because I believe it is a decision I have to make with the consent of Mr. Oki Nzeagali that you should know that all the expenses you encore during the process of this transaction MUST be returned to you and your percentage still remain unchanged.

With this, you are advice to go ahead and do what ever that is within your reach to repatriate this fund for a better life tomorrow. Thank you for all you have put in. I want to use this medium to open up some situation that has held me captive here ever since the government wants to know the source of my late husband?s wealth. My international passport has been withheld so that I can not travel abroad. The government still has confident in me because I have been investigated twice without any trace that I am using office to enrich him and that why I am still in the government. It is almost the same problem the secretary general of united nation faced during the scandal of OIL FOR FOOD in Iraq.

The contract of OIL FOR FOOD was awarded CONTEC INTERNATIONAL were his son is a director and the U.N thought that he has use his office to enrich his son but he was cleared at the end the investigation. I can not send out money abroad, it will be traced to know the reason why and who I have sent the money to. Therefore, I plead with you to do all within your power to making sure that you bring this transaction to a conclusion. God bless you.

Dear Dr. Olanrewoju,

Hold everything! I talked to my accountant, Mr. Rosewater, today at church. He said the form I need for my taxes is a United States government form called "Form 8300". He said he had never heard of the Department of Anti-Terrorism and Money Laundry. He wondered if that is a United States Government Department. He said the only concern for my taxes is the United States Government.

Mr. Spinner of the Department of Anti-Terrorism and Money Laundry office apparently is going to send me some documents. I hope we have time to stop him because there's no need for them now. I will cc him on this email.

Mr. Rosewater told me that in order to receive the $3.5million we need to complete Form 8300 and present it at my bank - they can then receive the funds and my taxes will be in order. The form is also on the internet at http://www.fincen.gov/form8300dec2001.pdf

I have attached a copy of the form. Please complete your portion and mail it to me. I will complete my portion and then it will be ready for the completion of our transaction.

Thank you and God Bless Mr. Rosewater!

Attn: Mr. K. Trout,

Thank you very much for getting your accountant explained things to you. The FORM 8300 is purely for your tax over there and it is not our duty to take care of your tax here. I tried to explain this to you that the $7,000 is for you to have the fund cleared here before it can be transferred to you.

The FORM 8300 becomes important only when the fund has been credited into your bank account. Yes! It is true your accountant may not have hard of this clearance procedure because he work under rules within his jurisdiction.

Clearing of fund from the National Office on Terrorism and Money Laundry Matter is a MUST here before any bank here will accept to transfer fund above the sum of $500,000. Their invoice makes no meaning to your country or your bank, but it makes a lot of meaning to the government here.

In the U.S, there are lots of offices that take or control the use of excesses fund which we donÕt have here. We have here Agency that is in charge of financial crimes called EFCC which I know your accountant did not know of.

The request by you to send document to take care of your tax is just a calculated attempt to delay the transfer of your fund because taken care of your tax must be the assignment of your bank. We all know this and your government must take nothing less than 20%-30% off the fund as tax..

There is no more need waiting, so go ahead and have your fund cleared by the NOTE & MOL. By sending the clearance fee as demanded by NOTE & MOL. As soon as we are that clearance certificate has been issued on your fund, then and only then we can exercise the legal right and banking order to carry out the Payment Advice.

Yours faithfully,
Edward Olanrewoju

Dear Teresa,

One worry is out of the way. The missing envelope has been returned and is stamped, "No Such Address" - not sure what the problem is. I copied the address exactly as it appeared on your letterhead.

Should I try again? Could you give me the exact address so there will be no mistakes this time?

Thank you for all your assistance.

Sincerely, Kilgore

Thank you for clearing up this issue. The National Office on Terrorism and Money Laundry is a Nigerian government office then? No wonder my accountant hadn't heard of it! I'll straighten out Mr. Rosewater.

I'm sure that as soon as the invoice arrives from Mr. Spinner (it turns out that he can send it via DHL after all) - then I'll show it to Mr. Rosewater and I'll order him to send off the $7,085 (an extra $85 to cover Mr. Spinner's expenses). I hope that can be sometime early this week.

Thank you again for all your assistance and I'm sorry for the delay, but you know how accountants can be - very focused.

Sincerely,
Kilgore

Attention: Kilgore Trout,

I have been following the document despatched to you as to know when it will get to you but unfortunately you were not home today when the DHL van came at your premisses. Please try to call their office to know when they will be coming again or rather you go there and pick it up.

Yours faithfully,
Michael J Spinner.

Michael,

I stayed home all day today waiting for this DHL van (except for a short trip to the grocery store to get some groceries - a man has to eat) - and it never showed up. Are you sure you sent the package? I had a problem with a registered letter sent to England last month - maybe this one is having a similar problem? Could there be a worldwide problem with delivery services caused by the high gas prices?

Do you have a phone number for DHL where I can find out what's happening? Can you check from your end? This is getting frustrating - I'd like to get this transaction completed so that I can get back to my writing.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kilgore Trout

Attention: Mr. K. Trout,

The document was sent to the Address forwarded to us by the bank and from the information from DHL on net they got there and the premise was closed. The same incident repeated on the second day.

The DHL number is 1-888-273-8876. I have already sent you the tracking before now. I personally called DHL yesterday and they told me that you should call them so that you can come to pick it up.

I did send the document.

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Michael J. Spinner.

Dear. Mr. Spinner,

What a mess!

I called 1-888-273-8876 and talked to the people at DHL and even asked to speak to their supervisor. None of them were any help!

Apparently, it's all a mix-up about my address. As I told the Dr. Olanrewoju, I recently sold my farm and have become a science fiction writer. Apparently he sent you the wrong address - my old address - and that's where DHL tried to deliver the package. No one was home because I don't live there anymore!

I explained this to DHL, but they said their regulations will not allow them to deliver the package to any other address. They think "security" is more important than getting the job done right! So there is apparently no way that I can get this package. Even if I have the tracking number and my personal identification!

Idiots!

But all might not be lost. In my latest email from Dr. Olanrewoju at the bank he seems to say that he will cover the $7,000 expense. He wrote (after I sent him the US Government form 8300 that needs to be completed to facilitate the funds transfer), "The FORM 8300 is purely for your tax over there and it is not our duty to take care of your tax..." I assume that he meant that he will take care of any taxes and fees in Nigeria if I take care of the paperwork and fees here in the United States. You might want to check with him to be sure that's what he meant.

In the meantime I'll talk to Mr. Rosewater, my accountant, and see if I can convince him to release the money based on a copy of the document.

Maybe you could attach the invoice to an email and send it to me so that I can show Mr. Rosewater. If he sees it, it might be enough for him.

I can't say for sure.

I don't want to have you use DHL again because they are obviously incompetent! If you want to try a different delivery service (I see many Federal Express advertisements on television and they look like they know what they're doing), I'd be happy to send you my new address.

I'm sorry for the confusion and hope that we can find a quick solution to these problems.

Sincerely,
Kilgore Trout

Susan, Oki, Teresa, Edward, and Michael:

You all seem almost like my friends, so you should be the first to know (especially since you seem to have lost interesting in corresponding with me)...

I have a confession to make.

I'm not really Kilgore Trout. And I am not really Curtis Vonnegut Esq. ret. And I am not really Mr. Rosewater. None of those people actually exist. I made them all up along with their email addresses to fool you.

I do not live in Iowa and have no connection to that address and phone number. I picked it at random.

I have no intention of sending you any money and never did intend to send you any money.

But I do hope to exchange emails with you again sometime when I'm using a different name and a different email address and again waste your time and money. When you get an answer to one of your lying 419 emails, you'll never know if it's a real answer or if it's me. I hope that it will be me (or one of my many friends that also play these games with 419 scammers - check out www.scamorama.com).

Our correspondence is here http://www.scamorama.com/trout_shabangu.html for all the world to see

Thank you for an entertaining time, I'm sorry it has to end.

Sincerely,
Not Kilgore Trout or Curtis Vonnegut Esq. ret., or Mr. Rosewater
