FROM: MR.FRANKLIN JAGO,
MIDDLE BANK OF AFRICA BENIN,
COTONOU,
BENIN REPUBLIC.

Dear Sir,
In order to transfer out (USD 45 MILLION) Forty Five million United States Dollars from MIDDLE BANK OF AFRICA BENIN [MBA]. I have the courage to ask or your assistance to handle this important and confidential business Believing that you will never let me down either now or in future. I am MR.FRANKLIN JAGO ,an auditor in MIDDLE BANK OF AFRICA, BENIN [M.B.A]. There is an account opened in this bank in 1980 and since 1990 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is Mr. DESTIN PAL, a foreigner, and a miner at D&D INVESTMENT CO., a geologist by profession

and he died since 1990. No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything

about this account and the amount involved is (USD 45M) Forty Five million United States Dollars). I want to transfer the [USD45M] Forty Five million united States Dollars into a safe foreigners account abroad , but I don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local bank here, but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in us dollars and the former owner of the account is Mr.DESTIN PAL is a foreigner too. I know that this message will come to you as a surprise as we don t know our selves before,but be sure that it is real and a genuine business. I only got your contact address from my secretary who operates computer with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business. You are the only person that I have contacted in this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit. I want us to meet face to face or sign a binding agreement to bind us together so that you can receive this money into a foreign account or any account of your choice where the fund will be safe. I will fly to your country for withdrawal and sharing and other investments. I am contacting you because of the need to involve a foreigner with foreign account and foreign beneficiary. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you later immediately, if you are able and with capability

to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit because this opportunity will never come again in my life. I need truthful person in this business because I don't want to make mistake I need your strong assurance and trust. With my position now in the office I can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing. I will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place. You can also come to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and two of us will fly to your country so at least two days ahead of the money going into the account. I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. I will use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance forms of the ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring. I look forward to your earliest reply. GOD BLESS YOU.

Yours Truly,

I know, never correct a scammer. But he doesn't remember the lesson for long:

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Frank,
Please stop typing in all capitals. It's rude. And while you are at it, use a word other than "demanding". Business partners speak more politely than that you understand.

I am spending most of my time on the road these days - I don't know if you can tell, but this is coming from the new Sprint PCS handheld - so I'm doing almost all communication via email. If you must use faxes, send them to 831xxxxxxx but it's usually a week or better till I get them. When I'm in LA, my number's 2137458761 but like I said I'm rarely there these days. If you need the corporate address, it's Leath Corp, box 221487, 2809 Airport Rd, Greenwood, SC 29649 US.

Regarding the account transfer, here are my bank account particulars.

it is expected that the transfer of the fund,will bedonw within 8 days from the day the affidavit is through.

Well i receieve your account particulars with you mailing address.

All i need from you is your support and co-operation to achieve this transaction.

Hence,am going to send to you all the relevant papers for the release of this fund for your perusal through you e-mail as an attachment.

Oh good, let's get an attorney involved. But first, let me mentor you:

UNKINDLY

Franklin, no problem. It will be my honor to help mentor and tutor you in the ways of proper business. For example, when dealing with attorneys you should always contact multiple attorneys and get price quotes for their work as most attorney tasks can be done by anyone certified by the local bar. You should also check to make sure they do not have any ethics cases against them at the state or regional level.
Onward,

Dear sir

How are you today,you should open an attach file,it is the affidavit in support of your claim which was sworn on your behalf by the independent attorney i contacted,together with the letter of administration.

However,the meeting for the approval of this fund will be held this afternoon,it is most likely that the fund will be approved for payment.As soon as the approval is made on your behalf,the fund will be released to yur nominated bank account immediately.

Hence,i will inform you before the end of today on the outcome of the meeting.

Have a nice day and waiting to hear from you.

Well ,our correspondence bank in nigeria is going to effect the payment,they where notified since friday last week,i would have contacted you and send the approval as i told you,but i went to my country side.

From now onwards the transaction is between you and the bank that will effect the payment on no account,should you tell them that it is a deal.

Hopefully,we are going to receieve the fund this week,you should follow them up with all their directives.

Also,when we receieve the fund this week ,we are going to donate 5% to any charity home you wish we are going to donate the fund to.

infact let me tell you one thing banking system is not the same every where in the world,the mode of banking in your country can be quiet different from the mode of banking in my country.

infact you should apologise to mr fowler for using harsh words on him,do you know that he is a manager in bond bank and moreover he is the person in charge to the release of our fund.their is no way we are going to receieve this fund without the involvement of mr fowler.he is the person that will release the fund.

please you should stop talking the way you are talking be a gentleman that man is very gentle.you should send the passport they told you to send to them immediately,because he is bent on stoopping further communication with you.

contact mr fowler immediately apologise to him and send the passport immediately,their is no cause for alarm and moreover am down here to monitor things.

i will activate my handy line this afternoon,after which i will give you my number in order to call me.

have a nice day and apologise to mr fowler and send the passport and informme.

Sure thing. As soon as Mr Fowler apologizes for his behavior we can continue. But you should pursue using someone else as he cannot provide the basic documentation required to justify his requests. Just looking out for you, since Mr Fowler isn't.

Time to solicit business for my mentoring consulting:

UNKINDLY

Mr Fowler,
I have read back through your last emails and have decided to give you a second chance. Please send me your apology for your rude tone and your behaviour to date. You probably did not know this but I often mentor young businessmen and this would probably be a good fit - you obviously need assistance in performing the duties of business in a coherent way and I am able to provide that mentoring. Normally I charge a steep fee and this is tied in with a three-day course in business communications that runs about $1500 per student just for the class. Maybe there are others in your organization who also need help in basic professional communications. If you can get 6 of them together it would probably be worth it for me to travel there and do the class. Let me know.

I looked through the emails and did not see any documentation of the DomSit Act exclusion protocols, so my passport is staying in my safe deposit box. Since identity theft is so prevalent these days, I'm sure you understand the need for that as a banking guy. I have already provided my address and bank account information. Now abide by international banking laws and do your job.

I have another class I teach that you may be interested in as well, on microeconomics, let me know and I can send out a syllabus.

Please send your apology as soon as possible so our business may continue.

Dear partner
how are you today,frankly speaking am very disappointed in you,how could mr fowler apologise to you,are you insane.

let me tell you,you are trying to frustrate my efforts towards this transaction,i went to mr fowlers office today ,he is bent on not communicating with you ,that you are mannerless.

please do not be stupid about this transaction,i have only few days to stay in nigeria as you are aware.

mr unkindly you should apologise to mr fowler immediately,and send your passport identification as requested by him now.

FRANK

UNKINDLY

Frank, I am looking out for your best interests. I don't know what Mr Fowler is trying to do other than foul things up. He is asking for personal data he is NOT entitled to. He is not following standard banking law. He is not providing simple documentation that was requested ages ago. And he is a rude moron. I have demanded he apologize to me before I will do any more business communications with him. I urge you to do the same - there is 45 million dollars at stake and he will rob you blind I think.

Tell Mr Fowler to either start behaving professionally or get bent. I have offered my business mentoring services to him and hopefully he will take advantage of those. He has much to learn. Go over his head and see if his boss can work with us instead.

In the meantime, I have been contacted by a lawyer in Nigeria. He sounds reasonable and professional, much better than this Mr Fowler guy. I will follow up with him and ask him to contact you regarding a business transaction - I will not disclose your private information to him.

Have a pleasant weekend.

Time to out the bank guy - Frank's partner. I really thought this would end it, but we're only a fifth of the way through:

UNKINDLY

Yo Tunde -
Game's up, pal. I know you're a fraudster trying to scam my pal Franklin. What percentage do you really think you can get of his money? Tell you what, we can work together on this. We both know you're not bright enough to be a banker and your English sucks. I'll agree to go 50/50 with you after we deduct for expenses. That's extremely generous- I could just report you to the 419 authorities - so don't give me any crap.

That should have ended it. Not a chance.

What the heck, go more over the top and see how he responds. Edited the reference to Bond Bank so Googling them provides proper context for this assertion:

UNKINDLY

Frank,
Here is what I will write to Mr Fowler. You tell me if I need to change anything:

Dear Mr Fowler,
Mr Fowler, I am still waiting for your apology for the way you have treated me and my partner to date. There are three areas you need to apologize for, just to be specific:

1. I do not appreciate the way you propositioned me to trade physical favors in return for business. I do not favor the company of men. Nothing wrong with that but I prefer women. I simply don't approve of the sort of quid pro quo bribery you seem to desire.
2. As you have never provided the DomSit Act exclusion protocol documentation, there is no need for anything beyond what you have already been given for you to finally start to do your job.
3. You seem to have forgotten that banks provide services to customers, not the other way around. If you don't like providing services to customers you should get out of the banking business. And while you are at it you should take a class in basic English language skills.
Kind regards

Frank, I don't believe that beating around the bush with this guy. If he does not apologize immediately, pull your money out. Don't give me this crap about it can only be done through Bond Bank - it's money, just pull it out and deposit it somewhere else, SO SIMPLE EVEN A CHILD CAN DO IT, DON'T TELL ME YOU CAN'T. AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, [THE FAKE] BOND BANK SUCKS.

ATTN: UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR
DEAR SIR

YOUR MAIL HAS BEEN RECEIVED.
I HAVE TAKEN NOTE OF YOUR INFORMATION FOR THE RAISING AND DESPATCHING OF YOUR BANK DRAFT.

BASED ON YOUR CONFIRMATION I HAVE GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BANK DRAFT VALUED US$45MILLION TO BE RAISED IN YOUR FAVOR ON YOUR NAME, UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR.

ONCE THE BANK DRAFT IS RAISED YOU WILL BE ADVICED ACCORDINGLY.

YOURS FAITHFULLY

DR D.P. IYABI
MANAGING DIRECTOR
CHIEF EXECUTIVE, ALL STATES TRUST BANK PLC.

UNKINDLY

Since the information has been confirmed, it should take you around 10 seconds to cut the check. Please send it without delay.

Another email that, incredibly, didn't end this correspondence:

UNKINDLY

Frank, I was re-reading your last email. Do you expect me to be your sex partner? I really am not interested in having you lick me. I prefer women. If you prefer men that is your business, I just want to make it clear that I consider this to be solely a business relationship and not a sexual one.

Dear friend
let me tell you i amnotgoing toapologise toyou again,infact you don not deserve any apology,for meto apologise to you ,youmust send that money ,i amsuffering for nothing.

meanwhile,let me tell you,their is no way you will receieve that fund without me knowing,so do not think that you will eat the money,if you try so ,i will alert the interpol immediately.so you should always inform me.

if you want us tobe friends send the money immediately.

frank

UNKINDLY

Frank, when have I ever said that I would get the money without you? Never! When have I been untrustworthy? Never! When have I breached our confidentiality? Never! And yet you come at me with the most insulting accusations. I deserve an apology.

I have alerted the mission that you need money as well. They are concerned about money transfers and do not have a fellow mission in Lagos so they ask you to go there.

Being friends should have nothing to do with money. It has to do with mutual love and respect. I await yours.

The fax from Dr Iyabi then came in - asking for an insurance payment of $5100 and a postage fee of $50.

Payable, of course, via Western Union, to:
Mr Kenechi Onukwuili
Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation
Lagos
Phone 234 803 3208954

Signed: All States Trust Bank Plc, The Professional Bank


UNKINDLY

Dr Iyabi, I got a fax that may have been from you, I can't tell. It looks like somebody chewed up and spit out the paper before faxing it. If you sent me a fax, please resend.

Thus inspired, All States Bank re-sends the exact same fax.

how are you today,frankly speaking,you are not treating me like a friend.
how can you call yourself my friend and you cannot help me out when i am i need.v
for your information i am not going to your mission i don't want to know them for any reason what so ever.

if you know that you are my friend send the money via western union immediately i am sick right now,no money to buy drugs what knd of friend are you.

have you receieve the draft from the bank.inform me.

meanwhile i wait for the money control number from western union ,before i can call you my friend.

may be you want me to die of hunger ,so that you can take the whole fund ,i am suspecting you,you are very wicked and uncaring to your fellow human beings.

i wonder the kind of mission you are into is it from GOD or from satan.

FRANK

UNKINDLY

Frank I did not know you are a drug user. Now I am glad I did not send you money to buy drugs as you say. I have sent money to the mission they may be able to help you find God and find a clean life without drugs.

I got some fax from somebody but it looked like goats had eaten it first. I think it may have been from the new bank but I can't be sure. Very unprofessional if it was. Surely the bank will help such a major customer to find appropriate lodging! Think!

What is the name of your friend who works at Interpol? I hadn't thought of that, that is a good idea. If someone tries to mess with your money we could tell them that Interpol already knows about the money.

I am not sure why you say I am insane when I just repeated what you said: "no money to buy drugs what knd of friend are you." Friends don't let friends do drugs.

FRANK

UNKINDLY

Frank, I contacted the bank yesterday they still have not re-sent the fax. I am starting to think that they may be incompetent or something. Why do you say to hell with the mission? The mission leads people toward heaven, not hell. It is this kind of attitude that keeps people from being helped, from being led to glory the way Elijah led, from bearing the mantle the way Elisha did.

I am thinking maybe you are not a Christian so you think you would not be comfortable at the mission. But they will welcome you and respect you regardless of your faith.

I forgive you for your harsh language, you should be more careful with the words you use. It is a form of repentance, of turning away from sins and toward the glory of God.

About money - I checked with the mission and they confirmed they received the money I sent them. So you should have a place to stay and money for food my brother.

I will let you know if the bank ever sends a fax that is readable.

STAY STRONG,

UNKINDLY

Dr Iybai, I sent you email yesterday that the fax you sent was blank. Please resend.

And here comes a third copy of the same fax.

UNKINDLY

Frank,

The bank faxed me a copy of the check. I have no idea why they would do that. I can't cash a fax. They should just transfer the money to my account:

(blah blah, same as before)

I'll shoot them an email.

UNKINDLY

Dr Iayabi,
Why did you send a fax of a check? The money should just be transferred directly into my account, the way every bank does thousands of times day. Here are the account particulars:

(blah blah, same as before) Here, eat this verse:

UNKINDLY

Frank - fyi, still no word back from the bank.

"Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh." Luke 6:20-21.

Soon we shall laugh!

BRGDS
FRANK

UNKINDLY

Frank, I do not approve of Benny Hinn or Jimmy Swaggart. Personally I think they should take the logs out of their own eyes first you know and they are not representatives of most Christians I know. When did you accept JESUS CHRIST as your Lord and Savior? I did not know you were a Christian I thought maybe that was why you did not go to pick up the money I wired there. The people at the mission are fine people who have given all they have to the poor of Nigeria, not the beautifully dressed people shown on TV.

I am sorry you have CHOSEN not to take advantage of all the resources I put at your disposal - shelter, food, money. I don't know what more I could do without showing up there myself and spooning the food into your mouth. As JESUS said, "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Matt 4:4). He was quoting Deuteronomy 8:3. So I am pleased that you have the word of God to sustain you in these times just as all Christians everywhere lean on it for sustenance and guidance.

I feel I have done so much for you already I don't know what other help you are expecting me to give. Money, food, shelter and constant cooperation with the bank is not enough? I do not understand your attitude in this at all.

I am not self-centered, I am Christ-centered and my actions show that.

Still no word from the unhelpful people at the bank. I'm leaving here tomorrow night for Switzerland so I will be out of touch for a short while tomorrow night.

In His Love,

The guy who slams US televangelists says the only way to prove I'm a Christian is by sending him money. A 10 on the irony meter.

(Received thus far: 60 emails, 3 faxes from his various accounts)

And things are going to go from bad to worse:


UNKINDLY

Frank, as you surely know as a Christian it is not our duty to judge, only God can judge. See Matthew 7:1, you'll see what I'm talking about. I'm not clear why you shun the mission. As it is written in that beautiful Psalm of Ascent, Psalm 133: Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down upon the beard, upon the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the LORD has commanded the blessing, life for evermore.

So let us dwell in unity. For now you can dwell in unity with the workers for Christ in Edo.

I had an idea. I will contact the bank and arrange for a funds transfer. That way you can get money from the Dr there. They have not replied back to me at all despite multiple mailings. I don't know what their problem is. How many million dollar checks do they hold in their hands each day?

I haven't set an end date for my stay in Switzerland. I'm flying there tomorrow night.

MANAGING DIRECTOR

UNKINDLY

Dr Iyabi,

Thank you for FINALLY responding to me. I am putting you on notice that I expect much more promptness than you have provide thus far.

I don't understand what you mean about it being impossible to execute large payments - it happens every day! Think about it. If you send a check and I deposit it, then the money will be moved as a fund transfer when the check clears. The money moves the same way either way. Surely I do not have to explain basic banking to the chief executive of a bank but I think we should be clear on this. No delays will be tolerated.

Please deduct any necessary charges from the amount and transfer the money immediately. Also take out $10,000 and give that as a gift to my partner Mr Jago. Lastly, there is a mission church in Edo city, send them $500,000. Then wire the remainder to my account, previously specified.

If you are not clear on these instructions, please let me know and I will contact a lawyer and have him explain them to you.

Regards

UNKINDLY

Frank, good news, the bank is finally starting to do something. Just a few small things to straighten out with the Dr. Unless he's incompetent this should be done this week.

When did you first feel the Spirit move within you?

Frank,
I included you as a "cc" on the email to Dr Iyabi.
When you look at the email message,
"From" is who sent it,
"To" is who it was sent to,
"Cc" is who was included for a copy of the message,
"Subj" is the subject line, and
"Date" is when it was sent.
Let me know if you have other questions about email.

As I told you before I am waiting for the bank to finish the transfer. I have also directed them to give you a portion of the funds up front. Should be done this week.

Lastly, your quote is not quite right. I think you are thinking of the temptation in the desert in Luke 4:
The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread." And JESUS answered him, "It is written, `Man shall not live by bread alone.'"

Heading off to the airport now. Have a pleasant night. Hopefully the transfer will be completed by the time I land in Zurich.

You must be the only bank in the world that is not allowed to hold onto bank drafts. You should celebrate your uniqueness. Perhaps use this as the basis of a marketing campaign - "Don't give us money, we are not allowed to keep it!"

Frank, I did not get to be a millionaire by paying bribes to idiots who can't do their jobs. There is no reason why this Iyabi person won't do his job other than his own stupidity. So now I have to waste money on a lawyer, but I'd rather give it to a lawyer than this fraud of a Dr. What is his degree in, Prevarication?

How are you feeling? I worry about you hungering there but I take comfort in the fact that fasts are good for the soul. Our LORD fasted for 40 days in the desert and look how HE came out! So I am sure this will be a time of great spiritual renewal for you.

PS - Be sure to send the church the money you stole. Since you don't seem to be in the street anymore I assume you are spending it on a hotel room. Don't spend it on whores.

Frank,
I'm going to be staying in Switzerland for another week, I have hooked up with a really amazing girl here at the resort. She's a little young for me but she is absolutely fantastic. I think she said she's from Ghana originally but frankly we didn't waste too much time talking.

I'm a little confused by your notes. I asked the lawyer about the paragraph that the Doctor cited, and the lawyer said that there is no such section by that number in the law. So I was right, it's a bribe and this Iyabi guy wants us to pay him to cover the bank's own costs. It's a good thing I asked a lawyer about this!

If you have other questions, you can reach him at xxxxxx@caramail.com
Oh, and we'll need to pay him for his services, $500 should cover it for now. Since you're there locally, give him money from the church money you stole.

If you have something to tell Pastor Bob, that's your problem. I am not your messageboy.

I asked the lawyer about the law that the Dr talked about and the lawyer said there is no law by that number in Nigeria. Did you pay the lawyer like I asked?

Frank, I already told you the lawyer said there's no such section in the policy. Now you say it is in the Constitution. What section? I hate to keep ringing up charges for legal research but it's better than paying bribes.

I got a question from the mission pastor, it sounded like he had not received a reply from you. The least you could do is admit you stole the money and maybe offer to work it off, help out at the mission etc.

Why can't you send pictures of the girls? I've attached a picture of the girl I've hooked up with here, can they really be better than this? Show me the proof.

83 emails received, 3 faxes in - time to give the money to another scammer!

Frank never suspected the girl. Happy Monday morning, Frank!


UNKINDLY

Frank,
Greetings from Dubai! Ginny and I are at an awesome resort here. Her uncle came and visited us here this morning. He apparently used to live in Nigeria so maybe you know him. He used to be a high-up in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation but left after some sort of shake-up in the government. Anyway, he has access to a huge fund, money that could set you up for life. This is great news! I checked with my attorney, Barrister Abdul Rashid back in Lagos and he said that the story is true. So I have invested in this plan and the deal should be complete shortly.

Then I started thinking - what about Frank? He could use money probably since he has to steal money from churches. So I asked Ginny's uncle and he said you could invest in it too. Each share costs $35,000 US. You can send your money to Barrister Abdul Rashid in Lagos, you can reach him at xxx@caramail.com. I must say I am very impressed by the professionalism of Ginny's uncle, a far cry from the bribe seekers you have been dealing with.

Let me know when you send your money in so I can verify with the attorney.

While we're at it, drive the nails deeper:

UNKINDLY

Dr Iyabi,
As we agreed, you will cover the legal fees incurred while I checked out your fabrications and lies about Nigerian banking laws. Please pay Barrister Abdul Rashid the sum of $1500 as payment for his services. His office is in Lagos so you could just look it up or contact him at xxx@caramail.com.

Unlike you, he has not asked for bribes.

Once that is complete, please send the bank draft you have been holding for weeks. No further delays are acceptable.

Frank has finally arranged for a welcoming party in Switzerland - he has cronies there. Too late:

FRANK

UNKINDLY

Frank, I am confused - did you not read my last email? I have invested in multiple shares of Ginny's uncle's deal, over $100,000 US. If you want in I think you have to act fast. Time waits for no man. With that contract money in hand we will be set so there is no need for these unhelpful bank people you have been dealing with. Ginny and I will be leaving here this weekend; we haven't decided on a destination yet but we've already done Zurich. Maybe next we will go to Monaco. Or Vegas. Maybe Detroit, who knows. If you want in on the deal, contact the barrister or just send me the money.

Frank, I have sent you some spending money via WU to tide you over till your money clears. Do NOT use it to bribe the bank guy or to buy whores. Speaking of which, you never did send me that photo you promised so I guess you figured out that you couldn't match the quality of women that comes with wealth. Work hard and make some sound investments and even you could earn enough to live this kind of lifestyle some day.

Frank, you could have asked for so much more money:

UNKINDLY

Frank, awesome party, you should have been there. I've talked Ginny and her friend into a stopover on our way to the islands. Her friend Neferteri has been our constant companion if you get my drift and the three of us have been enjoying each other fabulously. As a Christian you must know that Jacob had children by two wives and two maids as well so I am walking in blessed footsteps indeed.

I feel like I've been writing checks all week -
$105,000 to Ginny's uncle for 3 shares of the energy contract. Did you get a piece of this too?
$50,000 to the Edo mission
$5,150 to the bank guy so he'll shut up. I f***ing hate paying bribes. Next thing you know he'll say he didn't get it.
$1,500 to the lawyer.
$5,000 to you for living expenses. Live it up.

That's what, $166,650 in checks in a week. Good thing the stock I launched took off like a rocket! Do you have any T-bills in your portfolio? Maybe some tax-exempt munis? Do you have a financial plan in place for retirement?

We'll be stopping over for a night, landing at the Lagos airport on Tuesday night Oct 7. If you want to meet at the airport, that'd be sweet. Here's what I need you to do: send me a picture of you with one of the babes you have there. Shoot the picture of the two of you and she better be hotter than Ginny or I'll just stick with what I've got. Get the picture to me by Saturday latest. Going off to a late bath with the girls now, then in the morning we're off on a sightseeing tour around the country with the girls.

We'll be back late Friday. Take care. Don't forget the photo of you and the girl.

Frank, no photo was attached so I think you couldn't find anyone who could hold a candle to my girls. I'm really not interested in how long you claim your dick is. If I don't have a photo of you and the girl ahead of time there is no reason for me to spend a night in Nigeria. The photo of you is so I will know you at the airport - hold up a sign in the photo so I know it's really you, maybe a sign saying "I love Johnson" or something. The photo of the girl is so I can judge if I want to spend the night there or bang Ginny and her friend instead. Ginny's nervous about stopping there so if I don't have the photos I don't have a reason to stop there either.

I sent your money to the barrister in Lagos, it seemed simplest to just send it all to him. He's handling the business transaction with the oil contract plus the living expense for you. The Doctor's was sent separately to the bank contact person. I sent the barrister's funds - including yours - to Pat Croce, who is his assistant.

Frank, it sounds like Dr Iyabi screwed it up. I have arranged for the secure site to post the information again but this kind of incompetence must not be tolerated!

Waiting on those pictures. That last one was pretty lame.

UNKINDLY

Frank, that Dr Iyabi messed it up again, WU says he made no attempt to access the security codes while they were online. They are now offline. This guy keeps costing me money!!!! That's it, no more WU method for him, I will have Pat Croce pick up that money and the Dr can just get it from him. I've had enough of dealing with people who can't follow simple instructions!

Still waiting on those photos, by the way.

Dr Iabyi, this is mind-boggling. Have you never used the internet before? How do you get email if you are not capable of using a keyboard to type in information? The security screen could not have been simpler, I have used it myself. I am very disappointed in you.

I have forwarded your funds to the legal assistant to Barrister Abdul Rashid, a Mr Pat Croce in Lagos. Unlike you, he appears to be able to operate a computer. So unlike you, he picked up the funds I sent. You may reach him at xxx@lawguru.com.

Careful readers will note that Frank, although living on the street in Lagos, is now having picnics with babes in Enugu (his real hometown), across the country:

Frank then travels across the country from Enugu to Lagos to meet me; he goes out of email reach for 36 hours while he travels there and back. But he never sent the photos required, so we will be delayed.

UNKINDLY

Frank, what is wrong with you? You were supposed to send me photos and you PROMISED to send them but you DID NOT. Instead you go on a PICNIC! What the hell does that have to do with our business? I am SHOCKED by your unprofessional behaviour and your repeated inability to do what you said you would do. I DON'T CARE about some picnic in Enugu! And STOP insulting Ginny unless you have some evidence to back it up. The only picture you sent so far was a girl who looks like a HORSE.

Meanwhile, Ginny's friend got sick on the first leg of our flight so we got off in Amsterdam and will stay here till she is well enough, probably overnight. Working on a new set of flights now. This is not so bad since I still have not received those photos from you so it gives you ONE LAST CHANCE to fulfill your so far EMPTY promises.

UNKINDLY

Frank, Neferteri is still ill, we have admitted her to the hospital here. Meanwhile, please send your photo holding the sign as we discussed and also photo of the girls so I can judge if it is worth making that stop. At this point our plans are jumbled while we wait here.

UNKINDLY

Frank, our travel companion Neferteri is still very ill, now in critical care here and the doctors aren't sure what is wrong. I will keep you posted.

As I told you before, since you FAILED to pick up the money ALREADY SENT TO YOU via WU, I had the law office pick it up and they did so with no problem. They inform me that you have not contacted them and they have no street address for you so they are still holding the money.

We crossed in the mail:

UNKINDLY

Frank, haven't heard back from you so I hope you're okay. I got a weird email from Dr Iyabi at the bank, he seems to be incapable of doing anything that would resemble his job. I told him the lawyer's office has the money, I told him how to contact them, so what does he do? Nothing. He sends me a nasty email about not getting the mail. Well, duh! If he doesn't reach out and open his hand and grab the money it's not my damn fault. I don't know how I could have made this simpler.

Since you have money to go on trips to Enuga and go on picnics with girls I guess you picked up your money from the barrister already. You're welcome. It's a shame the Dr isn't as bright as you.

We're delayed here for at least a few more days - Neferteri's appendix burst so it's pretty dicey at the moment. Her parents are flying up here well. I'll let you know when we can re-plan our travels. In the meantime, please send the photos of you and the girls.

Hirudinea = the class of leeches.
In the words of Voldemort, waste the spare:


UNKINDLY

Frank, I checked with the barrister's office. Pat Croce said a man showed up and said he was from All States Trust Bank and picked up the money. So Dr Iyabi is lying to you again. He has already been paid once, there is no need to pay him twice!

Meanwhile, Neferteri has passed away. I only knew her for about two weeks so I only banged her about 20 times but still it feels like someone close to me is gone.

Now that Dr Iyabi has the money everything should be good to go. Meanwhile, that energy contract deal with Ginny's uncle has netted us millions! The checks have all cleared and we have decided to pool our money and buy our own private island. We will name a cove there in honor of our late friend Neferteri, and I'm sure we'll find something feature or animal worthy of naming after you. A hirudinea perhaps.

Now that the check is cleared you should be wealthy beyond imagining. Let me know when you can fly down to the islands and join us for a visit.

UNKINDLY

Dr Iyabi, since you have picked up the money from the barrister's office all should be set to go now. Please get off your lazy ass and release the check as required by law.

And now, as for where the money went, re-enter the Reverend:


REVEREND BOB MFUME

Mr Franklin, your money isn't there no more. The LORD giveth and the LORD done taketh away.

I took the money from the lawyer as payback for the money you stole from my church. I found out about it when I picked up mine. We even now.

UNKINDLY

Dr Iaybi, I do not appreciate being lied to. The barrister's office is willing to swear an affidavit in court that you picked up the money. As I have learned before, you need to be prodded with strong language in order to begin doing your job. So though I would rather use a civil tongue, you force me to be harsher.

Let me see if I can make this clear to you. You have all the money you need you greedy m*****f***** and if you don't do your job today then I will have a spell cast that will make your d*** fall off and then even if you can ever afford to buy a bride she will leave you on your wedding night. That is what happens to greedy lazy b******s who demand to be paid multiple times just to do their jobs. Now go do your job for a change you worthless moron or your disgraced ancestors will hang their heads in shame and only goats will go to bed with you.

Yes, there's a reply coming.

UNKINDLY

Frank, no emails from you this week so I hope all is well. A few quick notes -

1. Dr Iyabi is bitching about being paid again. How many times does this guy have to be paid? Luckily we know how to get him to do his job, just talk roughly to him and he caves like a schoolgirl. So I set him straight and this business should be complete now. He's been paid.

2. I got a message from the mission that you gave them a donation. Frank, I think that is wonderful. You are truly an inspiration to all.

Sorry about that. A resume (it's French in origin, with accents over the two e's) includes your name, address, phone number, all schooling, all grades, all work experience (I'd leave out the 419 fraud attempts) and a description of the type of work you are looking for. You should also include a photo. If you're familiar with CVs, a resume is like a long version of a CV.

Send two photos so I know it's really you. In one, hold a sign saying "Chidozie is a Mugu". That way I'll know it's not just some magazine cutout job, and then I'll attach the other to the resume when it's submitted. This is exciting my brother!

MEANWHILE I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT I DON'T WANT TO WORK,I WANT TO DO BUSINESS IF YOU CAN ASSIST ME I WILL BE VERY GRATEFUL.

I WILL SEND THE PASSPORT TOMORROW.

Good thing he wasn't on the Sagawa Express Road!

UNKINDLY

Franklin, I don't want to work either, that's why I have employees! Ha ha, you can use that joke.

Good to hear you are feeling well. I look forward to receiving your resume and the photos - not a passport picture but the photos we discussed - by close of business tomorrow. I really need to fill this investment manager position quickly.

UNKINDLY

Frank, are you okay? I need to finalize my investment plan this week so all the people have to be in place. I have already arranged for office space, phones, and computers in Nigeria. Where is your resume and photo?

UNKINDLY

Frank,
I have received no resume or "Chidozie is a mugu" photos from you so I have given the position to a Mr Abacha in Lagos. Although your biochemistry knowledge is no doubt impressive, he was able to convince me that his knowledge of particle physics was equally relevant to business. Quarks and whatnot. It's a shame, the job pays over $100,000 US per year and I thought perhaps it would have been a good starting point for you but I assume you are too busy picnicking with princesses in Enugu. Well, such is life. If you want to be considered for an assistant position under Mr Abacha, please send the resume and photos forthwith.

Ginny sends her love.


The following email got hung up in transit and finally delivered two days late:

DEAR UNKINDLY

HOW ARE YOU TODAY,I HAVE NOT GONE OUT SINCE FEW DAYS NOW THATS WHY I HAVEN'T SEND THE RESUME AND THE PICTURE.

WELL THANKS FOR THE EFFORT TOWARDS THE BUSINESS INVESTMENT.

I WILL SEND IT LATER TODAY.

BRGDS

UNKINDLY

Frank, I am growing somewhat concerned by things Mr Abacha has said. For that reason I have told him that he will be the assistant rather than the manager there. If you are still interested in running my investment business there, I need your reply by tomorrow at the latest. You must include at least a short resume and I must have the two photos - the one regular photo and the one of you holding a sign saying "Chidozie is a mugu" so I can be sure the regular photo is you. The photo holding the sign will be discarded after verification and the regular photo will be attached to your resume when it is forwarded.

I hope to hear from you soon my brother!

DEAR UNKINDLY

HOW ARE YOU TODY,I MET A LAWYER ,WHO TOLD ME NOT TO SEND MY PICTURE TO YOU THAT YOU MIGHT USE IT TO MAKE A CASE AGAINST ME.

HOWEVER,HE IS OF THE VIEW THAT IT IS BETTER THAT YOU COME TO NIGERIA THEN BOTH OF US WILL SEE ,SINCE YOU ARE IN POSITION TO COME DON TO NIGERIA AND MOREOVER THE BUSINESS WE ARE GOING TO START WILL BE IN NIGERIA.

BASED ON THAT ,AM APPEALING TO YOU TO COME TO NIGERIA SO THAT WE SHALL SEE ,I THNK THAT IS A NICE AND BETTER IDEA.

CALL ME ON MY NUMBER SO THAT WE CAN TALK.

HAVE A NICE DAY,MY REGARDS TO GINNY .THE GIRLS HERE ARE ASKING ME OF YOU.TILL YOU COME.

BRGDS

UNKINDLY

Frank, I am very disappointed that you have lied to me and put me in this position of having to rely on people I do not know to run my investment business there. You have said repeatedly that you would send your picture and your resume. And now at this late date you say that you will not. I have delayed a number of business deals in the hope that you could be my representative there. Your delays have cost me thousands of dollars. And now you tell me that you were lying to me all along, that you were never going to send your photo as you said you would. Why have you not sent your resume?

The lawyer lied to you, I have no case against you for I never lost money to your friends. I tried to give you a chance at a better life and I trusted you to be true to your word. I offered you a position to control my investments there, to be set for life and this is how you repay me.

If you are more comfortable having the photo be of someone else holding the "Chidozie is a mugu" sign, then do that. Either way, I need to know that you went through that effort and didn't just cut a photo from a magazine. And I need your resume.

Now I have to go talk to this Abacha fellow again. Thanks to you I still have to deal with him. I would rather deal with you. But HE sent his resume and HE sent his photo. When I arrive there I will visit with my representatives - and for now HE is the only one I have there.

HOW ARE YOU TODAY,WELL WHAT MY LAWYER TOLD ME IS THAT THEIR WILL BE NO WAY YOU WILL BELIEVE THAT IT IS ME EVEN IF I SEND THE PICTURE AS YOU SAID.

HOWEVER,SINCE BUSINESS IS INVOLVE AND AM GOING TO MANAGE IT FOR YOU IT IS BETTER THAT YOU COME DOWN TO NIGERIA AND SEE ME THEN WITH YOU AND MY LAWYER WE WILL SIGN AN AGGREEMENT ON HOW TO RUN THE BUSINESS AND THE PERCENTAGE WE WILL BE GIVEN YOU AT THE END OF THE MONTH AND HOW MUCH WE WILL BE COLLECTING.

I THINK THAT IS A MATURE WAY WE SHOULD DO IT.

SORRY FOR NOT SENDING THE PICTURE I DID NOT LIAR TO YOU BUT AFTER MEETING MY FRIEND LAWYER HE TOLD ME OF THE IMPLICATIONS INVOLVE.

WHEN WE SEE WE WILL SNAP A LOT OF PICTURES OKAY.

HAVE A NICE DAY.

FRANK
Great! I can be Frank's "oga", the 419 manager!

UNKINDLY

Frank, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Who the hell is somebody who has never met me to say what I do or do not believe? The point of the custom photo with the sign is to do away with any possible confusion - and it is required by my company, as I will explain. I am bewildered that you managed to find a lawyer who lacks any common sense. I suggest that you have nothing more to do with such an idiot.

As for your plan, it is not appropriate. There is no negotiation for percentages with lawyers. You seem to have completely misunderstood my needs. I need someone to run my investments there. I am not looking for you to drum up some business and then give me a cut. That would be stupid - I already have the business. I am looking for someone to be my eyes and hands on the ground there to make sure the money flows in the right directions. It pays over $100,000 a year, let me know what you think a proper salary would be as I can be flexible. You'd work under me, be mentored in business, get enough money to go forward with your university work. You'd be an employee of my company - with health benefits, retirement plans, company apartment, company car. But the company requires a resume and a photo. I've offered to bend the rules on the photo, it can be of someone else holding the sign as long as the sign is in the photo so I can testify that it is not a fake. I have obligations to my hiring department after all.

All of this was not a problem for Mr Abacha, I fear the bad advice you have received has clouded your judgment - and poor judgment is a characteristic I cannot tolerate in this role. You make your decision which life you want. You can send your resume and photo to me via this email if you want to share in my lifestyle. Be sure to specify the kind of car you want for a company car.

THANKS FOR THE UNDERSTANDING.

UNKINDLY

Frank, this display of distrust on your behalf is intolerable. Who do you think you are to order a potential employer around in this way??? It is MY money that will be in your paycheck, MY money paying for a company car. YOU don't give conditions. Where is your resume? Where is your photo? If they are not in my inbox today then forget it. I have no interest in calling some mobile number - it's not even the same mobile number you gave before, maybe it's really that idiot lawyer you talked to. I don't know whose phone number that is and I don't care. If you don't want this opportunity then you deserve the poverty you choose.

UNKINDLY

Frank -
I gave you and Mr Abacha the same photo assignment as part of the application process. He sent in his - why did you not send in yours? You promised it back on the 6th of November. I never received it. Because of your delay, this prestigious position has gone to Mr Abacha. If you are interested in working with him you must submit your photo and resume as previously specified.

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SCHULER INVESTMENTS TRUST ANNOUNCES NEW AFRICAN LIAISON. Mohammed Abacha, 37, has been named as the head of the African arm of Schuler Investments Trust (NASD:SCHIT), a multinational investment firm serving nonprofit organizations.

Subject: hi dear unkindly

how are you today,am afraid if i send my passport to you what my lawyer told me will happen.

if you are secretive in life their is no way you will show me the pictureof mr abacha.

infact if you mean business you will come to nigeria to see the person face to face i think that is maturity.

well you should call me and as well come down so tha we shall see even if it will take time.

what i saw is a written note from you expalining how you have given mr abacha work,it is not enough proof it is absolutely meaningnless and moreover it is not what i dicuss with you.

have anice day.

brgds

UNKINDLY

Frank, you seem to be confused. Here I address your points such as they are:

1 - I never asked for your passport photo. I asked for a photo of you holding a sign saying "Chidozie is a mugu" and another photo of you without the sign. You can use a passport photo for the second one if you wish, but only if it is accompanied by the photo of you holding the sign.

2 - The photos are a hiring requirement within my company.

3 - What I sent you in the last email was part of a press release that went out through BusinessWire. I assume you are familiar with BusinessWire and I don't need to explain such things to you.

4 - As you would be applying for a position to work alongside Mr Abacha, it was entirely appropriate to send his photo to you.

5 - As Mr Abacha is now my representative in Lagos, there is no need for my presence there until our new office tower opens.

6 - You have not specified anything concerning your requirements for a company car. Also, the standard company apartment is a 3-bedroom suite with balcony. Let me know if your have other needs.

HOWEVER,I AM INTERESTED IN WORKING FOR YOU AND AT THE SAME TIME MANAGING A BUSINESS WITH YOU.

BUT I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT MY ATTORNEY REFUSE WHAT YOU SAY,YOU WILL ONLY USE MY PICTURE THE WAY YOU ARE USING MR ABACHAS PICTURE TO SEND ALL OVER THE WORLD.

HENCE,COME TO NIGERIA WE SHALL SEE EACH OTHER AND AS WELL SNAPPED TOGETHER OKAY.

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY.

BRGDS

UNKINDLY

Franklin,

Mr Abacha is my Africa liaison, and it is not proper to call him a fool. I sent his photo to you - and only to you, not "all over the world" as you say - because you seemed confused about this simple requirement and he asked me to send his photo to you as a sample. I fear you are too biased and presumptuous to make sound decisions.

It is clear that your "lawyer" has poisoned your mind. How can this be explained otherwise? You claim you want to work for me and you repeatedly promise to provide the required application information but then you refuse to do so.

I can only conclude that either:
1 - you are an idiot
or
2 - you are a liar
or
3 - you are easily swayed by others to break your promises

None of those is acceptable. I suspect that all three are true.

Your ogas are ripping you off and your family resents your constant begging because you are such a failure. You will never afford a bride price.

And now I will post this so the whole world will see what a stupid 419 mugu you are.

Cheers
