HOUSTON, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

or, I'll have my Johnson call your Johnson. Welcome back the Unkindly Contributor!

"The attachment is the most interesting voice mail message, [trying to implicate] the US Homeland Security Department in his scam...

HOUSTON, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. Quick, pick a city where 419ers operate! Did you say Houston, Texas, USA?
Houston, you have a problem. Specifically, you have Nigerian 419 scammers using phone numbers and Western Union transfers around the Houston airport, claiming the nonexistent consignments are held by the Homeland Security Department.

In this log, the US connections shows up on July 14.
Houston-area cell phone of "Dr Ken Morgan", the "diplomat": 832-283-2292 (which may well be reassigned to a legitimate person at some point.)

Person "Dr Ken Morgan" asks to have the money sent to:
JAMES NGUYEN
1800 AIRPORT BLVD
HOUSTON, TX 77079

A second Houston drop box was provided by the Abidjan-based scammer and confirmed by phone by "Dr Ken Morgan":
WALTER ALVAREZ
5404 GULF FREEWAY
HOUSTON TEXAS 77023

Early in this bait with them, another baiter also baited them. That writeup is available online "Kenneth vs Kenneth":
http://www.scamorama.com/kenneth-v-kenneth.html
That scam also used Dr Akoto Martin of Pyramid Trust Security.

To slightly confuse matters, the first name of my baiting persona is Johnson, and that's the name the Abidjan-based scammer uses as well.
He changes his last name twice as we go along.

Johnson & Johnson & Johnson & Johnson...
in which Johnson Hamson, aka Johnson Konah, aka Johnson Lamine, attempts to scam "Johnson S------" with the assistance of Houston-based Dr Ken Morgan. Events go completely haywire when an unrelated Abidjan-based scammer is added to the mix."

Dear Johnson,

I thank you for your mail and I do understand that I already knows you before contacting you but bear this in mind that since we have decided to do this business together as partner there are so many things we both need to know of one another so that we can build up good trust and confidence since we are partners
as such,I need to be able to see your picture by so doing I would have known you, your age,working or surdent if working the nature of what you do for the company or if you are the owner, married or single what you like and dislike, things like that is enough so that I can know an say the person I am trusting all this money into his care or custody with out meeting the person before.

I hope you understand why now but if you still say know we can go along all we need do is to undertake a partner ship agreement to stand for us when we recieves the money so that our sharing will be so peaceful and it will be according to our agreement.

I will need your telephone and fax number too.

Do have a nice day.

Yours sincerely.

Dear Johnson,

I am confused now. You wrote to me because you knew how I could help you and the position I hold as a corporate director. Now you are asking about likes and dislikes? Married or single? What does that have to do with anything? It almost seems as if you do not know me which I find incompatible with your first message to me. If you do not know me then why are you writing me?

I suggest you stop playing games. Maybe if you get a job you won't have to be a *********** ********** prostitute, little *** boy.

I want you as my partner to contact the security company your self and let us know the best way to use in collecting our consignment.

Thanks. Johnson.

I do not understand your confusion. I said I will wait for the security company to contact me. Since I have never had dealings with them before they would probably think it odd if I just suddenly dropped in on them. Since you have had dealings with them it would be more appropriate for you to contact them and give them my contact information would it not.

Date: Wed, 16 Jun 2004 07:31:51 -0500 From: "pyramid trust" Subject: What you are required to do to claim your consignment.

ATTN : Johnson S------,

We acknowledge an application request by Johnson Lamine, demanding from this security company to either ferry your consignment or you come down to this country Cote d' Ivoire the capital city been Abidjan as may be demanded, but to put all these in action we have to get the approval from the Federal Ministry of Justice here in Abidjan.

We therefore ask you to produce this needed proffs by Documents that will back the consignment up, the deliver of your consignment will be effected immediately when all the protocols are completed.

The security company is ready to attend to you. So you can now call me on the phone number you are having with you.

Following the application by Johnson Lamine, I got to know that you do not have the full documents to claim your fund, this I was able to investigate and got to know that from the four documents needed you only have two and that is :

1.Certificate of agreement 2.Deposite Agreement 3.The receipt of payment

This below two item must be gotten and they are : A. CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP CERTIFICATE AND B.AFFIDAVITE OF CLIAM Must be gotten by you in order to claim your consignment.

To get this documents needed, from the Federal Ministry of Justice,here in Abidjan and if you will be coming in person we will need to have a scan copy of your driving license or first and second page of your international passport but if you are not coming down to this country a special diplomatic arrangement will be made to ship the consignment to you via Diplomatic Air Cargo but that will be under special arrangement.

From our inquire by the head of our legal department barrister Davis Ike, we are told that, to obtain the two documents which must be sign, seal and stamp dutied, that each of the document will cost 1,600 euro for each and because you need two of such documents that means you will need 3,200 euro and because the change of ownership will be notarize in the Notary office to the public , you are required to pay for the registration of the documents. To get two of the document it therefore means that you will need $3,200 plus $200 for the registration of the documents, the documents must be obtain so that we can effect the transfer of your consignment, immediately we received this documents/the money for the documents we will proceed.

You can send the money directly to the lawyer that will get the document for you through Western Union Money Transfer so that he can pick it and order for the Documents immediately.

Here are the informations to use in sending the money through western union money transfer and email me back the controls numbers.

Name : Davis Ike City : Abidjan Country : Cote D' Ivoire I will be waiting for your call my number is +225-0552-4057. Regards. Rev. Dr Akoto Martin.

(Oh dear. Who the *&(! is "Johnson Lamine"? My contact is supposed to be Johnson Edward Hamson, brother of Janet. Let's ride with that error for now.)


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Dr Martin,

Certainly. Payment will be made after services have been rendered as is the standard.

I am not certain why my partner would have told you we do not have all of the documents necessary. That is untrue; all documents are already in order as my partner has assured me.

I will contact my partner as he is local to you and can clear up your misunderstanding.

Kind regards Johnson.

Subject: PLEASE I NEED YOUR HELP

Dear Johnson S------,

I thank you for your mail and your good mails to the security company for I was really told the way you related to them and I am really happy and even proud of you to have you as my international partner.

Yes it is true that I have submited all the relevant document in my possession which they have okayed but since I am proving to them I have partner and they want to see it in document form along side with an affidavite of claim,that is the reason why they are telling you that we have not yet submited all the documents.

Right now I need your VERY URGENT HELP to get the two documents. The two documents needed are :

1.The change of ownership certificate to bear your name as my international partner . 2.The affidavite of claim that we are now ready to collect our consignment from their custody.

I was at the Federal Ministry of Justice this morning to find out the best way to do it and very cheap too knowing fully well that I do not have any money on me as I am mailing you right now.

I got a charge and bail lawyer who is ready to do it but the money to do it is where the problem is and because I do not have money I need your approver to have it done since you will help me with the money.

I got one Barrister Davis Ike to have it done for us and we both inquired from the Justice Ministry and to my disbelieved and amizement we where told by the lawyer in the Ministry that to get the two document will need 3,200 euro plus 200 euro to get the documents registered and notarised to the public.This means we need a total of 3,400 euro in all to arrange the two documents.

I am on my kneel now begging you because I have no other person in this whole wide world except you and if you say now the consignment will not be delivered to us and I can kill my self.

Thank you and God bless you while you streaches your helping hand to let my dreams come through.

Please can I have your telephone number ?

Please do not be offended once again and please assist me to get the document for the barrister says he has writen the draft before we take the draft with the money to the Ministry of Justice.

I thank God that you have accepted to help me with the draft but the most important this is that it must be done here in Abidjan where the consignment is deposited not in your own country because if you do it there they will not hornore it because a different court system governs your country and our own country . The other thing you can tell me is to look for nother cheap lawyer that will take less money to do it for us and not the security company legal department except for that it must be done here in this country.

Please I will need you to act quick because if we are using another lawyer it will take some time now but any thing you say I must do.

Johnson,

As you are but a boy, there are some things you should learn in life. One is that money talks. Two is that banking laws are honored across borders. So if this Akoto guy gives you some story about the funds not being able to be transferred, he's lying. Money talks, and you have the money.

What's the hold up? Why hasn't the money been transferred yet? Honest, I've never seen such incompetence and delay from a security company. It sounds like you want me to find a lawyer for you, I can call my legal department if you want. This Akoto guy and his legal buddies haven't done anything for you yet.

How do you now expect the bank to transfer the fund when we have not done what they have ask us to do.

I thought you did agreed to help me out with the money for the document why then now you are talking about another thing by puting blame on the bank.So a bank can transfer fund with out verifications or paying of cost of transfer.

I do not know how else to explian to you.

Please this is the time to help me for you know that we need the money for the documents and if you do not provide the money that might cause more delay which you are against and not very good and safe for this transfer.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I hope you and Janet had a wonderful weekend. I see from your message that you have much to learn about business so it is fortunate indeed that you have sought my counsel.

First, your title says you need money for documents. This is silly. There is no reason to pay anybody until they actually do work for you. They should provide you with a invoice.

Second, I do not understand your comment about the bank not transferring money without paying the cost of the transfer. This is what banks do. There is no cost to transfer money.

I am concerned that whoever is advising you - this Davis Ike guy or the Akoto Martin person - is lying to you and trying to steal your money. I will not let that happen! Tell then to stop telling you bizarre stories and start doing their jobs! If you need someone to come of there and physically put a boot up their asses to get them to do their jobs, that can be arranged. If they cannot do their jobs then get someone else!

Money talks - and if they don't start working, we walk!

Dear Johnson S------,

I want you to listen to me now, because I am not the person who deposited this consignment but my late father and when he did it they was an arrangemnt between them and since he my late father used my name as next of kin, and they demanded that I get a forign partner which I got you and now ask us for two document since I was able to submit the three my late left for me which they have okayed that the consignment belongs now to me. They now ask me to bring just this two document as required me law and you say they are telling me what should not be, all that they have ask me and you to do is a normal procidure of claiming items from security company.

The document that they ask you and me to show is.

1.A document to show that your are my partner as you are person reciving the cosignment because they do not know you before even me and that is why I gave all the document in my possession and they agreed I am the owner.

2. The second document they ask from us is Affidavite of claim that we have your name and my own as the two people that collected this consignment, is this not a normail situation.

I am really tired of asking and beging you help me out with the money for the document for I promised to pay you back before we share the money and you will have your 20% of the total amount.

Please help me if you must help me.

Thank you and God bless.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I'd be delighted to help. I guess I'm confused since there is no such thing as a fee for transferring that the security company was talking about. But now that I read your explanation things seem clearer. Thank you for that.

So, if I understand correctly your father left the money to you as heir. How wonderful - there should be no legal issues whatsoever. Just claim it as your own. Since you have title to it, I am not clear on why you need my help. If you need, I can ask my legal department to draft the documents you need as a favor from me to you and you and Janet can be on your way.

I have not seen any - ANY - sign of life from the security company or their legal advisors who seem to be spending all of their time sleeping and inventing ways to delay you. I suggest you fire them immediately.

As always, it is a pleasure to help you. Be well my friend,

THAT's what I don't understand. The money belongs to you and they are not giving it to you! You should be screaming bloody murder not standing there like some schoolgirl letting them give you the runaround. I have offered all the resources at my disposal to assist you and Janet in this effort. The Pyramid people are working against you for some reason, so fire them. Money talks, and if they cannot do their jobs they should go get jobs sweeping streets or some other task for which they may possess a modicum of the intellectual capacity required. As you are your father's son and heir you have all the evidence needed to claim your funds.

Think of your father. How would he want you to act? Now is the time to stand up for yourself against those who stand in the way of his legacy to you!

I am still waiting for Dr Akoto to contact me with the answers to the questions I asked him weeks ago. Is he a Christian? Perhaps you should be asking him to get busy as I think I have already done my part. As you know I am a corporate executive and I am not used to dealing with people that refuse to answer simple questions! Fire him immediately! Johnson

Dear Johnson S------,

I thank you for another mail and I must tell you that I have tried to enforce the security company to allow us collect our consignment but they are still standing their ground that I must provide those two document they have ask from me and I must tell you right now that I have accepted to provide this document other wise we will be wasting more time. Johnson, please I am now begging you do help me with the money for the document and let us make progress even if you do not have the complete money let me know how much you have so that I can look for the balance and we move ahead and conclude this transaction.

You said I that is begging the security company to fire them with what my mouth or Gun and when I do that I am now asking you this question, HOW CAN WE COLLECT OUR CONSIGNMENT FROM THEM IF I FIRE THEM AND THEY DIE.

Thank you and God be with you for I need your assistance now or never.

Johnson.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Thanks, now I see your problem. Firing them does not involve killing them. Firing them means they no longer work for you. Since it is your money, they work for you and must do what you tell them. If they don't, you replace them with someone who pays attention to your concerns.

I realize you are young and new to business so you may not have gone through a firing before.

The security company has no basis to make any demands of you. It is your money, not theirs.

Tell them to shove their demands up their ass. Take your business elsewhere.

I will have nothing further to do with people who conduct business that way! Trust me, you will be better for it after firing them!

Johnson,
I do not appreciate your tone at all. I did reply to you. How you can accuse me otherwise is a mystery to me. I just completed a week-long trip to Greece and I checked for new emails from you every day during my time there but heard nothing from you until this message arrived.

I have also heard nothing from Dr Akoto, I am presuming you fired him and have chosen a replacement for that company since they did nothing but delay.

Who is the new company?

Dear Johnson S------,

I thank you for your mail and the informations you brought but it is good that we apply for the shipment so that we can look for money or take loan to have the fund shiped to you in America, so i will want you to contact the security company to ask them of what it will take them to ship the consignment to your base that we need to know the amount.

I will make good contact with the loan people called investors and get you inform.

Thank you and God bless.

Johnson,

1. What loan people are you talking about? What investors? I thought this was your consignment not somebody else's. What is the meaning of this?!

2. I contacted the security company before and they never responded. Tell them to ship the consignment immediately.

Don't put up with any more foot-dragging by the security company!

Dear Johnson S------,
I thank you for the wonderful mail which you have given to me for I am happy for that and will give answer to your questions now.
I have seen that we need money to get through with all this and that is why you will recollect when you contacted the security company about the shipment they did not answer directly for they where saying who will do the shipment before they can tell you the cost of shiping this consignment to you in the state and having viewed all this and we have an investors who grant loan to people for some time and when we recieves our money then we can pay back with interest so I ask you to please contact the investors to grant us the loan for I have good colaterials which I will send to him and he will agree.

The investor contact is Mr Bamban Williams email is :investors_fin_long@consultant.com

Try for me because of the fact that you said you do not have money or can not put your own money into this then after we will share our money according to our agreement.

Thank you.

Johnson.

Johnson,

What in the world are you talking about? I have money. I run a 1000-person company! I have no need for Mr Bamban Williams. Why should I contact him?

I know you are not a businessman. It sounds like someone is taking you for a ride. Have you fired the security company yet? It doesn't sound like it. You should fire them immediately, get your consignment back, and ship it to me. I already gave you my address. Just have it shipped with the shipping billed to the recipient and I will cover the charge when it arrives.

And kindly tell Mr Bamban that he is not needed. I thought this was supposed to be a private transaction!

Why did you give us an unworking number all through yesterday the diplomat try to reach by phone since he entere the state.

Please try to call him invite him to come that you are ready to claim the consignment from him.
Please try to be nice to him.
He is Dr. Ken Morgan and his number is : 832-283-2292.
Thank you

(That is a Texas number! Houston!

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I do not understand how this person could have failed to dial my number correctly. It works just fine for every other person in the world. I was out all day at meetings and I did not receive ANY voice mails from anyone about this business. The number works perfectly fine.

I am upset that you did not do what you said you would do. You were to have shipped the consignment to me DIRECTLY - that's why I gave you my PRIVATE address. I have had my personal assistant watching for this since you said you sent it. Instead it turns out that you did not send it!

If Mr Morgan would like to bring the consignment he is certainly welcome to do so. He already has my address. When should I expect his arrival?

I have a full slate of meetings today. Leave me a voice mail if there is some reason why Mr Morgan fails to do his duty.

(I decided to become a moving target to make communications more difficult. I pull up a map of the midwest and pick a town in Nebraska. I head to a small town with no airport and few WU offices.)


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I am headed out now. I have to leave urgently - my mother has taken ill and I need to get there quickly. I will call Mr Morgan next week since he completely failed to contact me today.

I'll be in C------, Nebraska - that's close to where Mr Morgan is so I expect he can just drive up and we can complete this business. I do not know how long I will be needed there.

This is Dr Ken in Houston Texas
Thank you
and bye for now.


July 26:
PHONE CALL WITH DR KEN MORGAN
Got a phone card and a pay phone.

Had a contentious call with Dr Ken. He has poor listening skills. He wasn't really sure where the boxes were to be delivered (of course, they aren't to be delivered).

At the start of the call he wasn't giving his name until I told him mine. He did not appear to be fully aware of the script he was supposed to follow.

About 60 seconds in, his phone beeped - I'm fairly sure it was Johnson Konah calling in on a second line. He flashed over to it for about 30 seconds then came back on and was more on script.

His story: He is a diplomat. He used his diplomatic passport to keep the boxes from being inspected at the Houston airport but now needs $2500 for an inspection waiver. He said I can't claim the boxes because they are under his passport. He can't pay the fee because he's just a poor salaried diplomat. (And besides, the fee doesn't exist.) He needs me to send him the $2500.

Fine, I said, we will go together. I will meet you at the storage company. What is the name of the company? It's attached to the Houston airport, he said. Fine, what is its name? He didn't know. I got pissed off - How could you leave my consignment at a storage company and not get the name of it? Do you have a phone number for it?

His phone beeped, probably Johnson calling in again. When he flashed over to it I hung up on him. Total call length was 7 minutes, 40 seconds.

( Urgent email sent off to Johnson Konah: )


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson

DR KEN MORGAN HAS STOLEN THE CONSIGNMENT!

THAT IS THE ONLY CONCLUSION I CAN REACH. HE SAYS HE CANNOT DELIVER THE BOXES. THEN HE SAID SOME FEE HAD TO BE PAID FOR THE BOXES TO BE RELEASED FROM THE STORAGE COMPANY IN TEXAS. HE SAID IT COULD NOT BE RELEASED TO ME. I SAID, LET'S GO TOGETHER TO THE STORAGE COMPANY - WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE STORAGE COMPANY? HE SAID HE DID NOT KNOW!

HE DID NOT KNOW!

UNBELIEVABLE! HE DEMANDS $2500 FOR SOME FEE AND THEN HE CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE HE LEFT THE DAMN BOXES!

THE ONLY CONCLUSIONS I CAN REACH ARE THAT EITHER 1 - HE IS NOT INTELLIGENT ENOUGH FOR THIS JOB OR 2 - HE HAS STOLEN THE BOXES AND DOESN'T WANT TO TELL ME THE STORAGE COMPANY BECAUSE HE DIDN'T USE A STORAGE COMPANY - THE BOXES ARE IN HIS TRUNK AS HE DRIVES OUT OF HOUSTON.

When I asked for details HE HUNG UP ON ME!

I am sorry your money has been stolen by Dr Ken. I wish there was something I could do but your trust in him was misplaced.

I have wasted too much time on the phone with him today. If he decides to stop trying to steal the boxes and be reasonable then he should email me. I hope you have someone else in Houston who can complete the box transfer.

Be well my friend

( While he tries to figure out the next step, I send another mail: )


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Do you have any way to verify Dr Morgan? Maybe I read him wrong but he was so insistent on not telling me basic information that I could only conclude he was trying to keep it for himself. I can ask one of my employees to check for a storage company attached to the Houston airport if you want.

Let me know.

Be well my friend

Dear Johnson S------,

I confess that it has been a very long day for you over this transaction for that is how it is surposed to be from me mailing you today and by you taken good action and now you have link up with Dr Kem Morgan it all goes to show that you are ready now to recieves the consignment.

Dr. Ken Morgan must mean very well to us if you know the risk he took to carry this consignment there you will agree with me that at the end of this transaction and after we must have collected our money I will personlly dash him up to $5,000 dollars for doing a very good job for you and I.

Dr. Ken Morgan can not steal this money because he does not leave there for he went to render service and get paid and I am too sure for him to demand money from you I think the best thing is for you to send him this money so that he can clear the consignment and get that delivered to you because it might be as a result of not getting you immediately when he entered American then for safty he kept it with a private storage which it think will not be safe for him to disclosed every thing on phone for security reason`s do not forget he is a diplomat.

Please try again to call him for you did not conclude with him and you should be happy with him that you finally got him and above all he has been expecting your call before today.

I am encouraging you to please send the money to him for I know he is very real and will assist us untill he meet with you.

Thank you for all your efforts today and may our good lord bless you and your MOTHER.

Your name sake.

Johnson.

(Great! Another $5000 in pretend money. )


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Dr Morgan hung up on me without telling me how to send him any money. I offered to meet with him. I'm only a few states away now so I could fly down there or EVEN BETTER he could fly up here to Nebraska so I would not have to leave my mother's side at this time. She is fading fast I fear.

Tell Dr Morgan to email me the exact way to get money to him, or to tell me exactly when he will be arriving here. He has told me neither. I'm practically living at the hospital.

Thank you for your prayers.
Johnson

(I'm confused again, this time about the $5k)


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I have not heard back from Dr Ken. Please tell him that you will send him the $5000 you talked about yesterday. That should cover the fee he mentioned and then he can ship the boxes to me.

This has been a very stressful week. I think I will be here until my mother passes away. I am still determined to help you with your needs but please understand if I am unavailable periodically or somewhat on edge. I've been up almost all night and am heading out for a short nap.

Be well my friend,
Johnson



July 27:

PHONE CALL WITH DR KEN MORGAN

I placed another phone call to Dr Ken Morgan. I was so pleasant he thought I was a different victim at first.

He asked for the $2500 to be sent to:

JAMES NGUYEN
1800 AIRPORT BLVD
HOUSTON, TX 77079

He spelled all of that out, painfully slowly.

He asked that that payment go via Western Union. He did not know how to pronounce "Nguyen" correctly. He stated that Mr Nguyen is an accountant with the security company, then changed and stated he is the cash management officer.

I asked where he was staying in Houston. He stated that his son met him at the airport and he can lodge there as long as needed. I asked how he would deliver the boxes. He said he will bring the boxes to me via airplane as soon as the waiver is paid and the boxes are claimed from the security company. The boxes are stored under his diplomatic passport but he needs me to pay for the waiver. He said that when they landed the inspection people wanted to open the boxes but he would not let them - but he does not know what is in the boxes - so that is why the waiver fee is needed. I told him my partner will send him $5000.

He now calls it a security company; yesterday he referred to it as a storage company.

(Going back into highly frustrating mode:)


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,
I called Dr Morgan this morning. He sounded happy to hear that you will be sending him the $5000. That will more than cover his needs.

Please let me know when you send the money so I can make sure he acts quickly. He does not seem very interested in concluding this transaction.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Do you have an email address for Dr Morgan? The local phone service sucks here today. A tornado ripped through the outskirts of town last night. No one died but some animals were killed when a barn roof was ripped off a barn and landed in their pasture.

I'm not sure what to tell Dr Morgan now. As he and I discussed it you were to send him money. It sounds like you and he discussed having me send the money. He must think we are crazy. I am not used to doing business in such a cavalier manner and I assume he is not either.

That reminds me. He never gave me a bank account to use for the transfer. Do you have that information? I'd like to avoid having to fly down there to hand-deliver a check.

Thanks

I called Dr Morgan but he did not answer. I left him my email address so if he has questions he can contact me this way. I had a few questions for him as well that I need to know before the payment can be made.

Hopefully he will get back to me soon. I don't know if I will be able to make more calls today as they are still working to restore power and phone services damaged by the tornado so there are periodic outages today. When he calls or emails he must leave detailed information so we can get this finished.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

What is the meaning of this?! I left a voice mail message for Dr Morgan with EXPLICIT questions and he answered NONE of them!

THE MONEY COULD ALREADY BE THERE IF NOT FOR THIS GUY! WHAT IS HIS PROBLEM?

I ASKED FOR HIS EMAIL ADDRESS AND GAVE HIM MINE. HIS ANSWER: NOTHING! I ASKED FOR WHO TO SEND THE MONEY TO. HIS ANSWER: NOTHING!

So now I do not know who to send the money to. He has told me several things and I need to make sure I get it right. I called him again but he did not answer his phone.

THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BUSINESS PRACTICE!

PLEASE HAVE HIM EMAIL ME OR CALL ME WITH THE INFORMATION!

TIME IS WASTING AWAY!


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson -

Do you have an email address for Dr Ken? I asked for the transfer information this morning and he has not provided it! If someone who worked in my accounting department let this much money just sit around for days not generating interest he would be told how to behave in a more professional manner. He may have tried to reach me here but the phone system is still suffering blackouts while they fix the tornado damage. It took out a few stores on the edge of town and one of the local cell phone transmitters.

Do you know how many boxes there are? Dr Morgan said he would fly up here with them but there are limits to the size of carry-ons for flights and you shouldn't check that kind of luggage.

Be well my friend,

Dear Johnson S------,

How are you and your mother illness I hope she is getting better.

Please why are you not complying with what the diplomat said for I just spook to him only to discovered that he has since given you name and address to send the money through the fastest means and that is wertern union money transfer if you can not do it because of time then send some body to send it then all this worries will be over.How on earth can you at this stage be telling Dr. Ken Morgan to give you an account information to send money again into an account that can take days and even weeks to get money out of the account. Do not forget that this man just entered into America.

Why do you want to cause so much delay like this, you have made up your mind to send money then send it so that the money can be use to solve the major problem that we are right now and STOP TALKING ABOUT SENDING MONEY INTO AN ACCOUNT for we do not need any thing that can cause further delay.

I therefore beg you to go and send the money through western union money transfer and then call Dr. ken Morgan and give him the informations so that we can progress. If you have any questions please ask me and not Dr. Ken Morgan who is helping us.

The number of box is just two metal boxes.

Thank you and let us proceed kindly send the money to him immediately for he is waiting for the money so that he can deliver the consignment to you directly.

Bye expecting good news from.

Johnson.

Johnson,

I know you are just a young man and not a businessman so I forgive your tone of voice in your letter.

But you should understand I am extremely frustrated with Dr Ken Morgan. I misplaced the paper that had the information about who I was supposed to send a WU to, and he has refused to tell me it. Now how the hell am I supposed to send money to someone without knowing the name? So I asked him to call me with that information and did he? DID HE? NO! So if you want to rant at someone call him up and rant at him. How can I send money without having the right information? He never called back with the information!

This would have been done DAYS ago if Dr Ken Morgan had just given me the bank account information for a transfer. It sounds like that is a surprise to you but again you don't have experience in American business. It would have been done immediately. I could have ordered the transfer OVER THE PHONE and BOOM the money would be there. No delays like this, no sitting by the phone waiting for Dr Ken Morgan to finally decide to tell me where to send the money. You say it takes days and weeks to get money out of an account - what would make you think that? Banks would go out of business if that were the case here. Maybe that is the way it works in Abidjan but not here.

It would be DONE. It's the way business is done. I tell you I have never used Western Union in my life. I do not know ANYONE who has EVER used Western Union. Why not? Because checks and account transfers are reliable and fast. But I have acceded to that request. I am willing to try it. It would be much more efficient to transfer the funds via accounts, and almost as efficient to FedEx a check. If Dr Ken Morgan ever gets around to responding to my SIMPLE and POLITE request, perhaps I will know where to send it.

I await his call with the information. I hope he does not delay further.

My mother's condition is dire, we are counting out her last days. Thank you for asking.

Be well my friend,
Johnson


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Please, still no word from Dr Ken Morgan. I can't imagine why he would not tell me the name and address to send the money to. Is he always this unresponsive? Maybe if you tell them are millions of dollars riding on this he will finally act. I'd hate to break that confidentiality but sometimes one has to compromise. Let me know what you think.

This is a very sad day for me. Dr Morgan's failure to return my call just makes it worse.

Johnson.

Dear Johnson S------,

I am very happy to hear from you and have to go out of my way to find solutions to all this. I made a direct call to Dr. Ken Morgan to know exactly what to do and why is he behaving like this and then he told me that he has been trying to reach you but you left your phone number in a voice mail which is not good enough because he wanted to talk to you hence I collected the informations from him to give to you since he can not reach you by phone.

Please take all that is happening as my very self doing it for you please do no longer get offended by what is going on for I promise to make up for it. Please use this informations which he has given to you before to send the money through western union money transfer and send to him the control numbers and do send to me too.

If you call him you get him why do you not call him all this problem would have ended because he tries to get you on phone but always voice mail, I have tried so many times but will not get through to you remainber that even before we gave this assignment to Dr. Ken Morgan I have been complianing of your telephone system up till now I have never spooken to you cos of the phone system so bear with the situations.

My regards to your mother as I pray that out good lORD will make her be okay.

NAME : WALTER ALVAREZ
ADDRESS:5404 GULSFREEWAY HOUSTON

Please try and call him after you have done and please use western union.
Thank you and may God bless you.

Your name sake.

Johnson.

(that should be GULF Freeway, as later confirmed by Dr Ken.)


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

This is why I asked for email or voice mail on this. I am sure the last name of the recipient was something like Nguyen. Who is Alvarez? I'm concerned about having the money end up in the wrong hands. Maybe I should just send it to Dr Morgan directly and let him handle it. What do you think.

I've not been available for phone calls because I've been holding my mother's hand. I'm sure you will understand as you age. Leave me voice mails, I will listen to all of them.

Johnson

Dear Johnson S------,
What I think is that you worry your self a lot and you are making things very uncomfotable for all of us, A=Listen to your self you ask for name to send the money Dr Ken Morgan gave you name you said you misplace it.
B= Then I called him just yesterday he gave me another name to give to you,and you are asking another question why, you own is to send money in the last name he gave to you nothing will happen to the money for he will get it even if you send in the name of Dr ken Morgan no problem but you will have to believe is some body and do exactly what you and the person have agreed to do.
C=You have his telephone number that goes at one dail you refused to call him but he tries always to call you even though your number can never get through do you not listen to the once I drop for you and WHY DO YOU WANT AN OFFICAIL MAN LIKE DR KEN MORGAN TO DROP VOICE MAIL FOR YOU WHEN YOU CAN CALL AND TALK OR ARE YOU AVOIDING TO TALK TO HIM EVEN MYSELF TOO.
Please let us stop playing games and get seroius for it is my life that you are playing with my entire hope is that consignment and for you to leave it in the hands of the diplomat I am not happy.
Thank you and God bless and do send the money to the name I gave to you yesterday through western union money transfer and let us stop stories.

Hope to see the control numbers of the money you will send your morning today.

Your name sake.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Phones are not permitted in the intensive care unit of this hospital (C------ Community Hospital). This is standard practice in US hospitals. I have tried repeatedly during the few chances I have to make outbound calls to call Dr Ken Morgan but I only get his voice mail or it just rings and rings. I've talked to him three times out of about a dozen attempts. How many voice mails am I supposed to leave him with the same questions???

I have NO IDEA why Dr Ken Morgan is incapable of leaving detailed instructions on a voice mail.

I asked about the Western Union destination because I remembered the guy's name was something like Nguyen but I did not have his full name or his address that Dr Morgan had said. It's been a hectic week here, trying to run my office remotely. The paper's probably in the hotel room but I have been sleeping at the hospital. So that's what I needed, the right name and address for Nguyen. Then you said Alvarez. But now it sounds like Dr Morgan is the right person.

Do you see why I am confused? Dr Morgan could clear up this confusion with one phone call or one email.

I will be heading back to DC by Monday morning at the latest. Because of my schedule there I may need to hand off the sending of this fund to my administrative assistant as I will be running a board meeting and planning my company's next acquisitions. If I don't hear from Dr Morgan today to settle this confusion then I am sorry to say that it would seem like he does not want this transaction to complete while I am here. I don't know why. Should I plan to meet with him face to face? Maybe that would jolt him into action.

My mother is faring poorly. She is going in for surgery in about an hour. We're all exhausted.

Be well my friend,
Johnson.


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Friends and family -

Mother went in for surgery this morning and did not wake up afterwards. She passed away about 30 minutes ago. Thank you for all you have done for her and for your prayers and sympathy. We will be holding a small memorial service at her retirement home here on Sunday afternoon, then flying back to DC Sunday night redeye flight to bury her ashes alongside Dad's at St Stephens on Monday. Plan on an 11 a.m. service there if you can attend.

Blessings

PHONE CALL WITH DR KEN MORGAN

Called Dr Ken Morgan. Had a contentious phone call that lasted 16:50.

I started by saying "I have been trying to send the money to you but I got three different answers about who to send it to. There's too much at stake and I need the right name."

He said I was just playing games.

He asked about the three names, I said they were Nguyen, Alvarez, and Morgan. He said that Alvarez and Nguyen worked together and I should send it to Alvarez.

I said I had asked my administrative assistant to send the money but the address for Alvarez was incorrect. He said that the street name should be GULF FREEWAY, not GULS FREEWAY.

He accused me of being a problem and investigating him. He said that Western Union does not need addresses. I said that my admin assistant had tried to send it but it was not sent because the address was wrong.

I pointed out that he did not leave detailed information in his voice mails as I had requested.

He started stumbling, asking if I thought he was going to steal the money (he brought this up without prompting). "$2500 is not enough to change a person's life, we are not talking about $2.5 million, what is important is getting the boxes. I am not a criminal." - exact quote.

I said I was upset about the delay and did not understand why we did not do a check via FedEx or a bank transfer, it would have been done in seconds instead of all this delay.

I asked for the company name to send the money to, he said that is not a required field for WU, he sends money all the time to Africa and all over the world with no company name. I said I wasn't trying to send money to Africa, I am trying to send it to Houston.

He insulted me, said I was delaying things. I got ticked off and told him that if he had answered my questions the first time the money would have been sent. He said that since my administrative assistant works under me I should just order him to send the money.

I told him to come to Washington DC with the boxes. He asked for an address. I said I would meet him at the embassy on Monday afternoon.

"What embassy?" he asked.

"The Ivory Coast embassy in Washington, DC. You're a diplomat with them so let's meet there."

He said that if the transfer came through he would be there with the boxes. He did not know the address for his alleged embassy.

I closed by telling him that he has not been behaving professionally and I expect him to start behaving like a professional.


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Good news! Dr Ken FINALLY gave me the transfer information. He said the street name you gave me was incorrect. It was supposed to be Gulf Freeway, not GULSFREEWAY as you wrote. As for Dr Ken, honestly I don't know what that man's problem is. He is VERY unprofessional and VERY rude. But I guess we are stuck with him (for now) but I would advise you not to deal with such a rude person in the future. As you will discover, there are PLENTY of diplomats in the world to choose from. This guy is insulting and rude and not worthy of you. I was at a party last week with a delegation of diplomats from Asia and they were the most polite people I have ever met. This Morgan guy on the other hand...he seems to think he is my boss or something. And any boss who acted like him would be fired.

Anyway, I have forwarded the corrected address to my admin assistant. He is a stickler for details so I am sure when something is done it will be done correctly. My assistant had said that the WU slip asked for a company name. Dr Ken REFUSED to provide it. I have NO IDEA why he would not tell me the name of the company - again, more unprofessional behavior. They're our boxes, not his. If his failure to provide that information causes a problem it'll be on Dr Ken's head.

Dr Ken said he will be in DC on Monday afternoon. He is to meet me at the Ivory Coast embassy there. If you talk to him give him the address. He didn't seem to know it when we talked. It is: 2424 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington DC 20008. That's along what is known as "Embassy Row" in DC.

I will be there at 4 PM on Monday awaiting him. If he gets lost along the way, he can call them at 202-###-####.

As you know I will be spending the earlier portion of the day at the burial.

I look forward to having great news to tell you Monday night. Blessings to you and Janet,
Johnson

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Please rest assured that when your sister arrives here for the consignment I will look after her. I realize you two are young and may be taken advantage of by unscrupulous businessmen.

Just yesterday the charity I run got a proposal from a small church. They had been defrauded of hundreds of thousands of dollars. They applied to the L---- Charitable Foundation for a grant. I had to say no. I hated to say no to a church but that is how it goes - you don't want to encourage people to fail over and over again. You want to encourage them to change and succeed.

So I encourage you to change and succeed. When your sister arrives as you said then we can complete the business.

The investor contact is Mr Bamban Williams email is :investors_fin_long@consultant.com

Try for me because of the fact that you said you do not have money or can not put your own money into this then after we will share our money according to our agreement.THIS MR BAMBAN WILLAMS IS A FRIEND TO MY PASTOR.BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU DONT TRUTH MEIS WHY YOU WANT TO SPEND ANY MONEY BUT WHAT KOWN IS IN GOD I TRUTH WHEN THIS ARRIVAL TO YOUR COUNTRY YOU WILL BE HAPPY.

Dear Johnson,

I never said I did not have money - I run the L---- Charitable Endowment for goodness sake! I give away almost $110 million per year! So I do not know where you got the idea that I don't have money for these purposes.

I don't know who this Mr Bambam person is, it sounds like you have something else going on with him. Is that the case? I don't have any business dealings with him so I assume you have confused me with someone else.

UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I have not inquired about your eating because I take it for granted that someone with as much family wealth as you would naturally have food. I am not sure why you are asking why I have not asked about that?

Anyway, in your email you have requested that I contact someone about money he is loaning us. Actually he is not loaning ME any money as I have not requested any such loan and have no business relationship with him. I can only assume that you are borrowing money from him for some frivolous personal use such as gambling or prostitutes. Resist such temptations!

As I told you before, my job is to GIVE AWAY money, not borrow it!

If this investor friend of yours is interested in donating to the charitable endowment I would welcome his greeting.

I am glad to hear you plan to attend the Olympics. Please let me know where you will be staying. Hopefully we can meet up at the opening ceremonies!

I have found a local Bible college that has a great reputation. Please send me, IMMEDIATELY, your passport, your school transcripts, and two essays. These are the base requirements for consideration at the Bible college.

The essays must be on a theological topic. The first must be on the theological implications of the story of the Levite and the concubine woman in the book of Judges. The second must be a comparison of the theological philosophy of Bonhoeffer and Kierkegaard. They essays must be a minimum of 3000 words in length and must reflect the maturity of your spiritual development.

2. I am headed to Greece for the Olympics tonight so I will not be checking emails until late next week. This loser Bambam guy has not contacted me so you will probably have to wait another week. That should give you ample time to write your essays.

Johnson,

I am leaving for the airport in 2 hours. I will be in Greece for the Olympics, as I already told you. I thought you were going to meet me there.

I AM OFFENDED that you would say "YOU NOT CONTACT HIM" when, in fact, I DID CONTACT HIM. I emailed him DAYS ago and I told you that. So I do not appreciate you LYING about me.

He has NOT responded.

Your message is odd - what are you talking about putting money into an account for? What account? And what does Dr Martin have to do with it?

This is not the way business is conducted. Please meet me in Athens and we will discuss. Or, maybe by the time I get back that slacker Mr Bambam will get around to answering his mail.

Also, your essays must be submitted ASAP. Put aside all your other work until you have sent them.

Johnson,

Hello from Greece! The Olympics are amazing - especially the women beach volleyball players! I am surprised, I thought you were going to come here but it sounds like you decided not to.

The divinity school left me a message about you, they said they had not received your essays yet.

I do not know why you have not sent them yet. They need to be in by Friday so I will check my email for them tomorrow. This is not a step you can skip - I must have them ASAP.

Johnson


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

Still no word from you! This is not acceptable after all I have done for you!

Johnson,

It is now 7 PM Friday and no word from you. I cannot believe you have not sent me the information for the school yet - no transcripts, no essays.

Put aside EVERYTHING else and send these IMMEDIATELY.

Hos iw life with you i hope you are ok as for me am ok too, sorry i have not mailed you for along time, Si, back what you asked about the Man ( Dr ) that is going to give to us the lone we need.

I told you that i have introduced you to him and he said that he will not do any thing till he hears from you ok so do not think that he dose not know you, as i said before i have introduced you to he so he is expecting to hear from you. Sir, please try and contact him ok, remember i told you of the political crisis that is in this country, is getting out of head, remember that you are the only hope we have for now.

I not not went to loss my sister she is all i have for not, after remembering the way i lost my father and mother i do not want to loss her.

Please do you best and contact him ok bye for now i will be expecting to hear from you.

Thanks Yours Johnson.

(Luckily, I have a solution for him!

In the following, I never say 10 thousand What, and he never asks. 10 thousand emails is the plan. Meanwhile, I direct him to give money to another 419 scammer in his city. The other scammer is a Nigerian woman in Abidjan, pretending to be a pastor there. He won't do it but it forces him way off his script again.
)


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I am worried for you, I hope you are okay. My prayers are with you. I am not sure who you are talking about me contacting or why. I am worried that you may have gone into business with some criminal.

I'd like to send you a small token, say 10 thousand, to allow you to get over this hump and your present difficulties and you and Janet can come join me here. BUT FIRST I need to be sure you are truly honourable. So I have a small test that you can easily pass. Once this is done I will be sure you are an honourable Christian.

I support a mission church in Abidjan. To show me that you are truly an honourable man, I simply ask that you give a small donation of $500 to this church. If you do not have that money, borrow it. As soon as the church notifies me that you have given this small donation, I will send you 10 thousand. I will send you the 10 thousand through the same church with instructions that it be given to you for your pastoral studies. In that way there will be no question or issue or tax related to transfer of the money. I will know when you have given the church the money and I will be sure you will get what I send.

If you give her more than $500 then I will of course send you more than 10 thousand in return - sevenfold, as Jesus said.

Please let me know as soon as you are able give the church the money and I will give you the address for the pastor.

Johnson,

I am sorry to hear you have chosen not to take the help I have offered you. It sounds like you already have someone there helping you.

Let me know when you are ready to give the church the money we discussed.

I have no reason to call this other person. I do not need to borrow any money from him. Like I told you before, my job is to give away money, not to borrow it!

Regards


UNKINDLY CONTRIBUTOR

Johnson,

I have given the pastor your email address, she should be contacting you for the $500. Her name is Chindy.

(I sent a message to the other Abidjan scammer telling her that Johnson Hamson would give her $500 to cover the costs of the fully revealing photos she'll be taking for me.)

(She is unrelated to the whole Johnson Hamson/Houston scam. But she's in the same city so I try to get them to incriminate each other.)

(She then wrote to him. She's a 419 scammer, but she's playing it straight for the $500. She cc'd me:)


CHINDY

Hello,

Sorry to bother you....

My name is Chindy and Johnson S------ told me about you and said to write to you so you can give me 500$.

Sorry for the inconvinencies this might cause you.

I will also appriciate it if you can give me your phone number for easy contact

Thanks and God bless

(Hey Johnson Hamson - Happy 3 month anniversary!)

(I held off on giving him the other scammer's physical address. To guard against her lying about receiving the money, I will require her to send me a photo of her holding the cash. Or nude. Whichever is easier for her.)

Thanks for agreeing to give the money to Pastor Chindy. I have been worried for you.

If i can get the consigments out of this country then get out the money, i will now send it to her, and as a pastor i will like to send more then that to her.

Johnson,

What is the meaning of this? You PROMISED to give the pastor the money and now you say you CAN'T. What is all this about the consignment? What in blazes are you talking about??

Let me make this crystal clear for you:

I EXPECT YOU TO FULFILL YOUR PROMISES. I WILL NOT SEND YOU ONE FUCKING DIME UNTIL YOU DO. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE MONEY YOU PROMISED THEN GET A JOB LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES, OR BORROW IT FROM A BANK. THIS IS YOUR PROMISE, YOUR PROBLEM. I HAVE FULFILLED EVERY ONE OF MY PROMISES.

THIS IS PART OF GROWING UP - LEARNING TO KEEP YOUR WORD. ONLY A CHILD LIES OR RUNS AWAY WHEN HE IS ASKED TO DO WHAT HE PROMISES.

Is that clear enough for you?

One last thing. If you don't do as you promised then I will not send the 10 thousand to you, I will send it to the pastor or someone else I can trust there instead.

I told you that i will give her the money if i have, you know that i am only a student, so you do you expect me to get the money ?

Do not put words into me or say what i did not say, i will not like them if you have to do that, the woman you asked to contact me has done that and i told her what i know i can tell her and i believes she understand's me.

If you do not want to help me fine and good but i know that my God will not let us die.

Johnson,

I have no idea what you are complaining about. I told you quite plainly that I expect you to fulfill your promises. Here is exactly what you said earlier:

"I told her that i will send more than that to her soonext and i believe that she understand's"

I am bending over BACKWARDS to help you but you keep failing to live up to your word! You NEVER sent the essays after I went so far out of my way to get you into the best pastoral school in the US. You sent nothing! You made me look like an idiot with the head of that school. Did you apologize? Did you? NO!

NOW, you promised to give Pastor Chindy over $500 and suddenly you start saying you are going to keep that money to yourself instead.

I guess you don't want the 10,000!

If this is the way you are going to behave then I will spend my money and my time elsewhere. You need to mature.

I expect a full apology from you for your behavior to date and your most recent shocking email.

Johnson

Please note the following:

1. Pastor Chindy says you did not contact her despite her giving you her phone number.

2. You must give her the money as we already agreed. That must happen before I send you anything more, as we already agreed.

3. You mentioned getting a loan from someone there. If you need to get a loan to give her the money then I guess you must have wasted the money you were already given. Regardless, it is your obligation that must be fulfilled.

4. I do not understand why you are behaving this way - not contacting Pastor Chindy, lying about the reasons for not contacting her, and now talking about some loan. You are speaking in circles.

5. I will be heading out shortly; that will be in a separate message. In the meantime, FULFILL YOUR PROMISES!

Johnson,

Pastor Chindy copied me on her reply to your email to her. Is there some reason why you have not done what you promised? Pastor Chindy is waiting for you to give her the money you promised.

It looks to me like you are avoiding her. Is this how Paul would have behaved? Even after the riot in Ephesus he continued to reach out to that city because he had pledged himself to do so. Perhaps you should re-read Acts to familiarize yourself with his perseverence.

By contrast your task is miniscule. COMPLETE IT AT ONCE!

Finally, you said (as she quoted in her cc'd reply) the following: "please do let me understand this things then we can go into business as you said."

What are you talking about? There is no business. You are to give her the money and that is the end of that transaction.

I await word from you of your planned completion of this effort tomorrow.
