THE LADS WRITE TO THE COLONEL

From a Kindly Contributor in New Zealand:
Dear Scamorama
When I received correspondence from the Lads posing as Mrs Sese-seko, I decided to pose as exiled Colonel Miguél Dematei Ugarte, fugitive from Argentina's vicious "dirty war" of 1975-84 in which thousands of people disappeared.

After a while the Lads took fright, I think, faced with two things:
a.. Colonel Dematei's poor English
b.. The implied threat of Argentine heavies who operated torture chambers and murder squads on their trail.
It helps too, that I speak pretty good Spanish....


ORIGINAL SCAMMY LETTER FROM "MRS SESE SEKO": "Can you assist?"

Date: Sat, 03 Aug 2002
From: "MRS. M SESE-SEKO" <m_seko@spinfinder.com&bt;

FROM:MRS. M SESE-SEKO

DEAR FRIEND,

I AM MRS. SESE-SEKO WIDOW OF LATE PRESIDENT MOBUTU SESE-SEKO OF ZAIRE? NOW KNOWN AS DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO (DRC). I AM MOVED TO WRITE YOU THIS LETTER, THIS WAS IN CONFIDENCE CONSIDERING MY PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCE AND SITUATION.

I ESCAPED ALONG WITH MY HUSBAND AND TWO OF OUR SONS TIMOTHY KONGOLO AND BASHER OUT OF DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO (DRC) TO ABIDJAN, COTE D'IVOIRE WHERE MY FAMILY AND I SETTLED, WHILE WE LATER MOVED TO SETTLED IN MORROCO WHERE MY HUSBAND LATER DIED OF CANCER DISEASE. HOWEVER DUE TO THIS SITUATION WE DECIDED TO CHANGED MOST OF MY HUSBAND'S BILLIONS OF DOLLARS DEPOSITED IN SWISS BANK AND OTHER COUNTRIES INTO OTHER FORMS OF MONEY CODED FOR SAFE PURPOSE BECAUSE THE NEW HEAD OF STATE OF (DR) MR LAURENT KABILA HAS MADE ARRANGEMENT WITH THE SWISS GOVERNMENT AND OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES TO FREEZE ALL MY LATE HUSBAND'S TREASURES DEPOSITED IN SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. HENCE

MY CHILDREN AND I DECIDED LAYING LOW IN AFRICA TO STUDY THE SITUATION TILL WHEN THINGS GETS BETTER, LIKE NOW THAT PRESIDENT KABILA IS DEAD AND THE SON TAKING OVER (JOSEPH KABILA). ONE OF MY LATE HUSBAND'S CHATEAUX IN SOUTHERN FRANCE WAS CONFISCATED BY THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT, AND AS SUCH I HAD TO CHANGE MY IDENTITY SO THAT MY INVESTMENT WILL NOT BE TRACED AND CONFISCATED. I HAVE DEPOSITED THE SUM OF EIHGTEEN MLLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS(US$18,000,000,00.) WITH A SECURITY COMPANY , FOR SAFEKEEPING. THE FUNDS ARE SECURITY CODED TO PREVENT THEM FROM KNOWING THE CONTENT. WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS TO INDICATE YOUR INTEREST THAT YOU WILL ASSIST US BY RECEIVING THE MONEY ON OUR BEHALF.ACKNOWLEDGE THIS MESSAGE, SO THAT I CAN INTRODUCE YOU TO MY SON ( KONGOLO) WHO HAS THE OUT MODALITIES FOR THE CLAIM OF THE SAID FUNDS. I WANT

YOU TO ASSIST IN INVESTING THIS MONEY, BUT I WILL NOT WANT MY IDENTITY REVEALED. I WILL ALSO WANT TO BUY PROPERTIES AND STOCK IN MULTI-NATIONAL COMPANIES AND TO ENGAGE IN OTHER SAFE AND NON-SPECULATIVE INVESTMENTS. MAY I AT THIS POINT EMPHASISE THE HIGH LEVEL OF CONFIDENTIALITY, WHICH THIS BUSINESS DEMANDS, AND HOPE YOU WILL NOT BETRAY THE TRUST AND CONFIDENCE, WHICH I REPOSE IN YOU. IN CONCLUSION, IF YOU WANT TO ASSIST US , MY SON SHALL PUT YOU IN THE PICTURE OF THE BUSINESS, TELL YOU WHERE THE FUNDS ARE CURRENTLY BEING MAINTAINED AND ALSO DISCUSS OTHER MODALITIES INCLUDING REMUNERATION FOR YOUR SERVICES.

FOR THIS REASON KINDLY FURNISH US YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION, THAT IS YOUR PERSONAL TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBER FOR CONFIDENTIAL PURPOSE AND ACKNOWLEDGE RECEIPT OF THIS MAIL USING THE ABOVE EMAIL ADDRESS.

THE COLONEL REPLIES

My reply, deliberately using broken English, replete with mis-spellings and grammatical mistakes that a Spanish speaker might make, was as follows:

Heading: Ayuda con sus monedas (this is Spanish for "Help with your money")

Hola Esteemed Sir
I dearly love assist with you problem. Please perdon me english.
Not very good becuase i escape Argentina in 1983 after dirty war.
I you understand abot to send you money out. I you help.
When democratistas came in my contry, they it ruin and i escape with me money.

Please do you speek spanish? Easier for me.
I now exiled in New Zealand.

Miguél Dematei Ugarte


"MRS SESE SEKO": SPEAK ENGLISH!

"Mrs Sese-Seko" took a couple of days then replied:

Dear Miguel Dematei,

Thank you for your comments .
But be rest assured that I am not going to involve you in a transaction that has threat to life or imprisonment.The funds was willed to me by my late husband.We were in Morroco together during the DRC rebels onslaught before the demise of my husband.
However for security reason I had to declare as a refugee to allow the dust to calm down before I enter the outside world.Unfortunately since then I have been down with different ailment arising from stress.Since my husbands chateaux in France was confisticated by the DRC government I decided it was time to redirect the deposited funds for security reasons.
Moreover information reaching me has indicted the DRC government as wanting to keep tabs on us with a view to seizing whatever my late husband left behind.Hence my contact to you requesting your full cooperation.

The funds in question is lodged in a safe deposit vault in London.My plan is to have you contact my son as soon as he arrives London and both of you will finalize the transaction.My son has a power of attorney to effect the release to you.I have sent an urgent message to my son to proceed at once to London to open communication with you.

I am presently in a refugee camp in Morocco for security reasons .I have no access to phone or fax except the public ones which will not be convinient. The one available is not confidential so I am unable to call you now.My plan is to have my son call you upon his arrival in London and together you visit the vault and remove the crates containing the money.I will give you 25% of total funds if you will cooperate fully.

Be informed that my son is not in any position to handle the funds alone.There is no risk associated with this transaction because its me you and my son who knows about this deposit alone.This is why you must keep it as confidential as humanly possible. Another area I forsee is the area of safeguarding and protecting the funds.This will have to do with bringing the transaction within the jurisdiction of the territory of the United Kingdom.Most importantly get an anti-laundry certificate so the money will not be termed drug money or terrorist money. Let me have your comments so we may proceed.
I dont speak spanish in your nest mail to me try and use English.

Regards,
Mrs Seseseko.


THE LADS TRY MACHINE TRANSLATION

I was a bit busy with work when this came in so I ignored it for a couple of days, then "Mrs Sese-Seko" wrote again,
using a computer to translate "her" second letter to Spanish.
The Spanish is utterly abominable and in itself a great source of entertainment
for anyone with any knowledge of the language. At least one should give the Lads marks for effort!

Incidentally, in Spanish, no one would choose "querido" (literally "dear") for a opening
unless they really knew the other person well. Normally "Estimado" or something like that would be used.
Anyway, I won't comment further here on the many errors in the Spanish below.

Querido,

gracias por sus comentarios. pero estar resto asegurar que yo ser no ir para implicar usted en uno transacción que tener amenaza vida o imprisonment.The fondo ser querer mí por mi atrasado husband.We ser en Morroco junto durante Manual del Transportista rebelde impacto antes fallecimiento mi husband.However para seguridad razón yo tener que declarar a medida que uno refugiado para permitir polvo para calmar abajo antes de que yo introducir exterior world.Unfortunately desde entonces yo tener ser abajo con diferente dolencia presentar stress.Since mi marido chateaux en Francia ser confisticated por Manual del Transportista gobierno yo decidir él ser tiempo para volver a dirigir depositar fondo para seguridad razón. Por otra parte la información que me alcanzaba ha procesado el gobierno del Manual del Transportista como deseo guardar tabulaciones en nosotros con objeto de agarrar lo que dejó mi último marido behind.Hence a mi contacto usted que solicitaba su total cooperación.

fondo en pregunta ser alojar en uno seguro depósito cámara en London.My plan ser para tener usted entrar en contacto con mi hijo tan pronto como él llegar Londres y ambo usted concluir transaction.My hijo tener uno potencia abogado para efectuar desbloquear you.I tener enviar uno urgente mensaje mi hijo para proceder inmediatamente Londres para abrir comunicación con usted.

yo ser actualmente en uno refugiado campo en Marruecos para seguridad razón I tener ninguno acceso teléfono o fax a menos que público uno que no ser convinient.The uno disponible ser no confidencial así que yo ser incapaz para llamar usted now.My plan ser para tener mi hijo llamada usted sobre su llegada en Londres y junto usted visitar cámara y quitar cajón contener money.I dar usted 25% total fondo si usted cooperar lleno.

estar informado que mi hijo ser no en cualquier posición para dirigir fondo alone.There ser ninguno riesgo asociar con este transacción porque su mí usted y mi hijo quien saber sobre este depósito alone.This ser porqué usted deber guardar él tan confidencial a medida que humano possible.Another área yo prever ser área salvaguardar y proteger funds.This tener que hacer con traer transacción dentro jurisdicción territorio unir Kingdom.Most importante conseguir uno contra - lavadero certificado así que dinero no ser llamar droga dinero o terrorista dinero. Déjeme tener sus comentarios así que podemos proceder.

Respeto,

Señora Seseseko.


THE COLONEL TRIES MACHINE TRANSLATION IN REVERSE

Since the Lads had used a computer to render their letter in Spanish I decided to play along and write them a latter in Spanish. I had to be a bit careful not to make too many spelling mistakes as otherwise their translation software would not work properly, but here it is:

Title: Una respuesta

Estimada Sra Seseseko
Gracias para tus comentarios. Recibé dos correos en los ultímos dias.
Perdon no ya tu escribé, pero escribé hasta pronto.

El problema es con un viaje a Londres por si salo el país puede estará detenido
para "crímenes contra la humanidad"
cuando trabajaré en Buenos Aires mientras de la guerra sucia.
Los democratistas no entiendran los problemas durante esos dias....

En un o dos dias escribé un correo sobre el problema,
pero tengo una respuesta -- cuando vivo en Argentina tuve un grupo conmigo.
Tengo alquíen que debe a venir a Londres pero se necesita un poco de tiempo más.
Es muy importante que no tienan ningún de los problemas
y conosco sobre los problemas de lavar sus monedas.

Gracias para tu correo en español pero desgraciadamente,
el idioma no es bueno. ¿Usaste una computadora para la traducción?
Algunas de las palabrias fueran muy buenas, pero las otras
son mesclado con inglés y comprensión no es facíl.

Cordialemente
Miguél

Translated into English I hope their computer software came up with something like:

Esteemed Mrs Seseseko
Thank you for your commentaries. I have received two mails from you in the past few days.
Excuse me for not having already written but I will write very soon.

The problem is with a trip to London for if I leave the country
I might be arrested for "crimes against humanity"
when I worked in Buenos Aires during the dirty war.
The democrats do not understand the problems during those days...

In a day or two I will write a mail about the problem,
but I have an answer -- when I lived in Argentina I had a group with me.
I have someone who should come to London but a little more time is necessary.
It is very important that we do not have any problems
and I know about the problem of laundering your money. Thank you for your mail in Spanish but unfortunately the language is not good.
Did you use a computer for the translation?
Some of the words were good but others were mixed with English
and comprehension was not easy.

Cordially
Miguél


THE LADS GET TO THE POINT

The next letter from Mrs Sese-Seko showed the Lads had given up
on the use of computer translators and now they started mentioning money:

Title: Re: Una respuesta

Dear Dematie,

As originator of this transaction I have done my part by preparing the ground to enable us conclude the transaction legally on time.Right now my son is billed to arrive London tomorrow night.

I think its important if we know our responsibilities in this transaction.Since Tim will arrive the Uk You shall be responsible for his feeding and accomondation until the deposits are released.

Secondly you shall handle this transaction as your own.Total commitment because you are the point head while my son will ensure and endorse all documents are signed to empower you to act.

Thirdly you shall any expences that may arise i.e opening accounts to lodge the funds should you want to instead of a draft.

You shall arrive immediately to cooperate with my son in London so that work can start on the preliminaries.

I need this full cooperation by virtue of my present condition of health and my taking refuge at the camp until the funds are released to you for security reasons.You will be reimbursed as soon as you collect the crates from the vault of whatever expences if you so wish.

It is expedient you forward to me your confidential telephone number if there is another so my son can contact you immediately and you discuss and finalize your arrival.

My plan is for you and my son to proceed from there after collection of funds to your country ahead of me;while I will join you later.

Yes I used a computer which is very amatuer.Please get an intereter whom you trust and lets proceed.

Let me have your comments as soon as possible so we can proceed.

Kindest Regards,

Mrs Seseseko.


THE COLONEL AIRS HIS DIRTY LAUNDRY

I thought I'd play for time a little and help reinforce the "nastiness"
of Colonel Dematei, so I used my best broken English and wrote:

Title: Re: Una respuesta

Hola Mrs Seseseko:
I recive you mail and thak you mucho for.
I think abot traslator but problema is security.
With somethink as this importante not tell nobody excepto who it needs to know.
I know me english not good but is more good than somebody not necessario

I think abot me to go to England but this is dificul.
You know abot Flakland islas (las Islas Malvinas) and war ago 20 years?
No good for argentino. So i go to Buenos Aires, then to San Pablo (Brasil).
I look at flights now. Posible form San Pablo directo to Milano (Italy) or Madrid (Spain).
Spain is more good but problema is argentino acento is obviuos.
So i go to Milano then to England becuase when in Italy or Spain easier more
becuase then in Europa Union.

I have other problema also. Me group had touff works in dirty war against comunistas
and "izquierdistas" (sory, not know english word) and democratistas
me want it prison for humans rights of charges.
You know abot General Pinochet in Chile? Arrestan in London ago thre years.

But I think more good for a miembro my group in Buenos Aires us help.
We were militars and have more good disciplan so no a problema.
Is OK for you son? In Argentina are some englishspeaker and one
me men speak english very good. Me problema is to find he now but think he is in Italy.
Maybe take other day or so.

Have you thinked already abot laundry of moneys?
I know abot this becuase i did laundry with me moneys from dirty war.
Do you son know abot front companys and other laundrys ways for moneys?
Ways to laundrys diferent in diferent contrys.

Miguél

Oh dear... I think Mrs Sese-Seko has had an attack of the frights.
I haven't heard from her for more than a week now
and I think she may be having second thoughts about swindling a group of ex-military killers and thugs.....

By the way I sent the same initial email this evening to "Barrister Raymond Obi"
who claims to represent Sani Abacha. I will see if our legal friend falls for the same line....
By the way I have noticed a trend lately whereby the scammers know their email account
will be terminated within hours at most. The latest scammer asked for replies to be directed
to a parallel account he had created.


THE COLONEL SHARES HIS STAFFING PLANS

Dear Scamorama
I am sending this from "the Colonel's" account with Yahoo.com.ar in Argentina.
"Mrs Sese Seko" obviously doesn't want a dozen military hard men turning up in London.
I will send "her" a reply shortly confirming that for so much money obviously such a group is absolutely vital and the military boys are on their way to London.
Regards,
The Colonel

Dear Miguel,

I write to inform you that I have arrived London to finalise the impending transaction with you. This requires urgency and confidentiality as you may have known. I have confirmed that the consignment is ready for claim as soon as you come over to London. I'm the personal assistant to Timothy Seseseko who is indisposed at this material time. If not, he would have been in London with me.

Please, call me using:+44 79 57 395 826 for further briefing. Note that time is of great essence and we have to pick up the consignment as soon as possible to avoid demurrage. At any rate, it is important to let you know that I'm an architect by profession and I have an impending construction project in the Gambia to finalise before December, 19th. As such, I have to leave London for Gambia as soon as possible.

Best wishes as I look forward to hearing from you.

BASHER SAYS KEEP SECRET SECRET

basher oman [basher7oman@yahoo.co.uk] escribió:

Dear Miguel,

Thank you for your urgent response. Be rest-assured that this business is 100% safe provided you keep secret secret. Once we mind our business and remain calm, there will be no problem of interpol or police. We have a clearing agent that will clear and deliver the consignment to you and I while we wait in the Hotel. Secondly, we have an expert banker who will assist you and I to deposit the fund in a special bank for onward wire transfer to any account of your choice. The two helping hand i.e the clearing agent and the banker will be paid by madam.

I have spoken to the clearing agent, Mr.Steve Walker who confirmed that our consignment is ok and ready for claim. He also, confirmed that madam has paid £18,000:00 for the demurrage. According to the agent, we have an outstanding clearance/endorsement fee of £9,200:00 which must be provided on or before our consignment is released to you and I. Madam is not aware of this, if not, she would have made provision for this. Due to urgency this business demands, I advise you to come with along with this fee(£9,200) as it will be refunded to you as soon as the agent delivers the consignment to us. Note that no one else know the content of the consignment except the banker, you and I not even the clearing agent. Madam told him(the clearing agent) that it is a family treasure.

Nonetheless, I have notified madam of this outstanding fee and my suggestion that you should come with it. She had also, agreed that you should remove whatever you invest in the business once the consignment is delivered to us. So, do not worry, we have enough cash to balance you once you arrive London and the consignment is delivered. Please, send me your flight itinerary to let me know when you are coming so that I can wait for you at the Airport. From the Airport, we check into the Hotel, contact the clearing agent and the banker and we take things up from there as quickly as possible.

Please, keep this business absolutely confidential until the consignment is successfully delivered to us. Act with dispatch as I am in London to work for you and madam.

Sincerely yours,

Basher.


THE COLONEL BALKS

The lads have now asked for a fee of £9,200, but the Colonel has a better idea -- two of his men can have a "quiet little chat" with the agent and he is sure there will be no more fee... and perhaps no more agent if he is uncooperative....

Subject: Re: Urgently contact Basher Oman in London....

Dear Miguel,
Thank you for your mail. Please, note that the initial £18,000:00 was a payment for demurrage to the diplomatic department due to over delay of consignment. The payment was for government but not for the agent. This second fee is meant for clearing and endorsement and the fee belong to the government but not for the agent as you may be thinking. The agent is for you, myself and madam as far as this business is concerned. Madam pays him upon successful completion of this transaction.Nobody is taking undue advantage please.
Note that the agent has been working for madam for years before the death of her Husband. Madam trust him and the banker; that is why, she told us to work hand in hand with them. They are like family friends and he cannot deceive madam for just £9,200:00. This money is going to the government and receipts will be issued afterwards.I'm quite certain as far as this fee is concerned. As requested, I will forward the agents contact tomorrow because my diary is not here and I'm replying you from a business centre. Feel free to contact him but have it at the back of your mind that the requested £9,200 is a mandatory charge which must be paid before the consignment is released to us. Please, keep this business absolutely confidential. You are involving so many people already which is against the principles of this business. Please, tell madam about the people you are introducing into this confidential transaction. I hope you understand my position.
Have a good day as I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely yours,
Basher.


LADS ON THE DEFENSIVE

Date: 07 Sep 2002

Dear Scamorama
The lads are on the defensive about the fees. Obviously the idea of the Colonel providing a little "gentle persuasion" to the agent to get him to waive the fee has not found favour.
By the way, while demurrage would normally accrue to a consignment not collected immediately from a port, a fee of £100 might be reasonable.
£18,000 would be a right royal rip off even in England where everything is very expensive.
I have a little experience of importing, and one consignment I dealt with weighed 210 kg and was stored at a port for three weeks, yet the demurrage was less than NZ$100 (about £30).
I think the Colonle might have to have say something about this.


A LESSON ON DEMURRAGE

The lads are obviously not so keen on the Colonel's chosen methods of dealing with all these requests for fees and costs.

By the way, I have some knowledge of port handling charges, demurrage and clearance fees. Generally there a handling charge levied by the shipping agent. For a 200 kg consignment this might be around £50 ($70). There is demurrage but at most, even if the consignment has sat in the port for several months this may run to several hundred pounds, not £18,000. As for a charge for "clearance fees" there may be agricultural inspections and so on but these would be at most £100, not £9,200.

I know of one consignment that sat at Frankfurt Airport for about six months due to a clerical error and the demurrage of this (weight was around 50 kg) was less than £1,000 inclusive of all governmental fees.

The weight of a consignment of money amounting to $18,000,000 would obviously depend upon its denomination. A US one dollar bill weighs almost exactly one gram. If someone was to transfer $18 million in cash, they would probably use $100 notes. In that case, there would be 180,000 of them and the total weight would be around 180 kg.

On another matter, I realised I had made a spelling error on the "itinerary" I prepared for the Colonel -- I have misspelt the word for "passport". Maybe Argentine travel agents make the occasional typographical error!

By the way, the "Escuela de las mecanicas de la Armada" was the "Navy School of Mechanics" in Buenos Aires which was the most notorious torture and murder centre used by the military during the dirty war.

The Colonel


MADAM'S CHATEAUX CONFISCATED

From: basher oman
To: Miguél Dematei
Sent: Monday, September 09, 2002
Subject: Re: Urgently contact Basher Oman in London....

Dear Miguel,

Thank you for your email. Please, note that this business is confidential and due to publicity, Madam's chataux was confiscated by the French government. For this reason, it took madam great effort to smuggle the baggage to UK and any noise or any form of publicity about this deal will arouse government interest and possible seizure if care is not taken. For obvious reasons, madam cannot defend the source of this great amount of money. It is government money which her husband acquired when he was alive as the president of their country. As such, we have to be calm and do everything according to madam's decision. This business is not legitimate. "Those who live in a glass house must not throw stones".Secrecy is the ultimate solution.

Anyway, the receipt for £18,000 is with madam because she cleared the outstanding demurrage before the consignment got to England. As requested, you can reach Mr. Steve Walker of Overseas Credit Nominees(The clearing agent) on telephone number:+44 777 607 0333.I will also like to know the number of people you will coming with or let me know if you are coming alone. Whatever you want is okay by me but I have to keep madam informed of any development. Please, forward your flight itinerary and endeavour to come with the requested clearing/endorsement charges(£9,200) to avoid delay in clearing our consignment.

Best wishes as I look forward to meeting you soon.
I remain,
Sincerely yours,
Basher.

Hola Basher

Now I en Buenos Aires and received you mail.

Think Mariam has need it me grupo servicios. Know abot problemas with actividades no it legales and have mucho experiencia with such like actividades. Have problemas ago two years with compagnia en Germania at Francoforte Aeroport with charge it wanted us make for demurrage for air cargo. Some times these compagnias think cargoes is illegales and is posible it us charges mucho more. Compagnia en Germania us wanted to pago DM 3000 (or abot that, is abot U$S 1500) for demurrage but me mans had quite chat and demurrage no more us it charge.
Normal demurrage charge for 200 kg is abot U$S100 for two week, so abot £70. So for Mariam it charge £18000 it take advantage and charge it is extorcion. Compagnia think abot cargo is it illegales. Think ours cargos is abot 200 kg. Know abot moneys and have trasporte moneys ago 20 year so know abot these things.

With chateux in Francia is it same. Me mans wuld deal with gobierno burocratista that start actividades against Mariam and no more problema but now it too late.

All gobiernos same. En Argentina if want something from gobierno, pago small fee to burocratista and he it fix. If inspetor of impuestas come page small fee and he gone away. I dealt with Europa mucho for more than ten year and it same everywhere. En Italia, pago small fee and no is a problema. En England maybe more dificul but no is imposible. Burocratista correcto take small fee and no more pago demurrage or release fees.

It very importante here becuase know abot these problemas. Compagnia think it can charge anything becuase consignment illegale and it charge more and more of fee. I tell you this fee no is end of fees. I come to London and pago £9200 and compagnia tell you is more fees. I seen it before happen, but me mans fix problemas and corrupt burocratistas and compagnias empleos dealt with by me mans. No more fees and no problemas.

Abot numbers of mans I send abot 12 mans to London but no with me. Mans takes others flights. Maybe solo one man with me on flights. I ask today me man in Europa you to it send a mail abot flights to London.

Remember me mans all militars and haves the more good disciplin. No is a problema, every one ios quite. Solo mans we have for quite chat make noise, but me mans deal with this problema en specialemente places. No is problema.

I think problema it is for Mariam no have adecuado grupo for all problemas with these cargoes. I sure you peoples is very goods but no have correcto mans for touff works when it neede.

Best

Miguél


EL FIN?
