Yosemite Sam and Fred Flintstone of YABBA DABBA DOO! are just very good friends.

LINDA KOFFI - scammer
EDMUND HILARY - "her" financial advisor and alter ego (or possibly boss)

YOSEMITE SAM - staunch relic of the Old West (and part-time cartoon character)
SYLVESTER D. KATT - Sam's attorney and friend


It started when I got this email, apparently in French............

LINDA KOFFI

Linda Koffi
Abidjan / Cte d'Ivoire

Bonjour,

Je vous prie d'emblée de m'excuser pour tous les désagréments que mon courrier pourrait vous causer. Même si nous ne nous sommes jamais rencontrés, je crois fermement que sur la base du droit d'assistance humanitaire une confiance véritable peut naître de notre communication et favoriser ainsi un véritable partenariat entre nous deux.

C'est avec un réel plaisir que je vous contact depuis Abidjan la capitale économique de la Cote d'Ivoire (Afrique de l'Ouest) où je vis depuis la rébellion . En fait je suis Linda Koffi, fille unique de feuriche planteur ivoirien et membre du bureau politique du Parti Démocratique de Cote d'Ivoire (PDCI-RDA) ex. parti au pouvoir de 1960 à 2000, tué lors des événements de septembre 2002, qui a secoué la Côte d'Ivoire.

De son vivant, mon père avait déposé sur un compte numéroté et bloqué auprès d'une Banque Internationale à Abidjan Côte d'Ivoire, la somme de 4,200,000.00$ US (quatre millions deux cent mille dollars US). Pour lui permettre de concevoir un vaste projet de pisciculture dans la région du centre de notre pays plus précisément à Bouaké. Malheureusement le sort en a décidé autrement.

Quelques temps après sa mort, j'ai découvert dans son testament cette information et j'ai automatiquement pris contacte avec cette institution financière pour revendiquer cet important legs en ma qualité de fils unique et légitime, au regard des stipulations testamentaires. Au jour d'aujourd'hui ma préoccupation majeure est de transférer cette somme hors de l'Afrique de l'Ouest principalement de Côte d'Ivoire où sévit actuellement de graves problèmes politiques. Vu que notre famille a souffert et continue de souffrir des brimades et tracasseries de la part du régime en place, car je vous rappel une fois de plus que mon père fut l'un des haut dignitaire du PDCI-RDA dans la région du centre.

Dans cette perspective que je vous contacte pour vous suppliez de m'aider dans ce transfert en mettant à ma disposition un compte bancaire en votre nom personnel où cette somme peut être transférée. Car, croyez-moi je n'ai aucune maîtrise des rouages bancaires et je compte sur vous pour m'aider dans cette tâche qui du reste est dénuée de tout risque. Je peux ainsi vous rassurer qu'à la fin de l'opération je vous consentirai 15% du montant total comme votre récompense personnelle.

Je voudrais savoir compter sur vos qualités humaines, vertueuses et professionnelles. Dès que vous manifesterez le désir de nous aider je vous délivrerai une attestation sur honneur pour garantir ma parole et mes engagements à votre égard.

Recevez mes salutations les plus sincères.
Fraternellement,



So I had Yosemite Sam, the old cartoon trail buster,reply...........

LINDA KOFFI

Hello dear,

Thank you for your urgent reply. How are you today? Hope you are fine? I really want a foreign relationship that will not cheat me or dump me as soon as he gets what he wants. I seriously need a man who will stand for me at any time. I need a God fearing person who will support me to move my late husband money overseas. I have a son who is now 16yrs Francis. We live under the help of the church who gave my son accommodation and me in the guesthouse.
My dear,I amLinda Koffi from Abidjan the capital of Ivory Coast. I am a widow being that I lost my husband a couple of months ago. My late husband was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death. He was assassinated last January by the rebels following the political uprising.Before his death he had a foreign account here in Cote d'Ivoire up to the tune of $4.2Million dollars in a fixed suspence accountwhich he told the bank was for the importation of cocoa processing machine.
My dear, I want you to do me a favour to receive this funds to a safe account in your country or any safer place as the beneficiary . I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial production. Please my dear if you can assist me and my only son Francis, we have agreed to pay you 15% for your help and input towards this transaction and 5% for the expenses.Furthermore, you will promise us that as soon as the money is being transfer into your account you will send to us invitation letter to come over to your country for upwards investment. If you are willing to help let me know immediately so that I can send to you the contact of the bank where the money is deposited. I will like to give you more of the details as we go on.
But, I will need your assistance.I want to leave this country and come over to your country if it isokay for me to stay with my son Francis. I speak fluent in French than English but I write more in English than speaking. What about you? do you understand French a bit? How is the cost of living there? I read in your profile that you are separated with your wife. Can you tell me more about yourself. How many children do you have?I attached photo of my son and I here. Send to me your full contact/telephone /fax number for easy communication.

Thanks and best regards.

Linda Koffi

YOSEMITE SAM

Anyhow, I don't know how I can be much help ya'll, I live here in the desert and rustle cattle all day long. What in tarnation do you need me to do?? I do have a bank account I rekon you can store yer money in, I don't use it much. Only reason I even opened it was to stash all that money I made on that gold claim back in the 70s.

Ma'am, I don't know where you git yer information at, but I ain't seperated, heck fire, I ain't never been married. The trail ain't no place for a woman, dang it! Heck, there ain't nothin in my profile that says nothin about being separated, so git that out of yer mind! Ain't got no dang young-uns either! As far as that goes, I ain't got one of them newfangled phones either, so this is the best way to contact me...I keep my laptop in my saddlebags all the time. You said you on the Ivory Coast, ain't that down yonder around Tijuana somewheres?

Sorry to hear bout yer husband. Say he got shot? He wasn't a horse thief, was he? We shoot horse thieves around here.

Anyhows, you just email me back if'n I can help you and little Frankie!...oops, I gotta go, here comes a dang sidewinder!

Sincerely,
Sam Yosemite

LINDA KOFFI

Dearest one,
Thanks for your concern, I thank you for your kind mind to assist me in this hour of need. I know it is hard to understand my dear, i thank God for my life. It has not been easy since i lost my husband. It has been life like a prisoner. But i thank the Lord that he keep us living. What we really need now is just faithfull person to stand for us as my son foreign gaurdain to receive this money from the bank here. ifyou could accept to assist us out God will surely assist you too.

Everthing I told you about this money is real, genuine, riskfree and legal, I have surferred alot since my husband died. I dont have any body to look after us, but we have some hopeless ones who want to kill us too and have the money to enrich themselves. That is why we don't want to have the money invested here or to leave here any more.

I contacted you to please do this following thing for me, to help and make sure that this money will be smoothly transfered into your bank account, you will also help to source for a nice investment where you will invest and manage the money for us.

You will make arrangement for us to come over to your country to have a better life and my son to continue his studies. Presently i have no money with me because I cannot withdraw the money in the bank due to the fact that the money is in a fixed deposit with the Bank .As my late husband states therein that it will be transfer and be use out side the country because he is avoiding problem from his enemy and still yet they got him killed and the rest of my family and this is the reason why we dont wish to stay here anymore.

I and my son are presently hiding in a church guest house were people cannot not trace us easily and our feeding is just by charity help and that not our pressing problem now. I need this money to transfer to your account ,so that we can be able to have a new life altogether and my son to continue his education as well.

I assuring you that any help you render to me will be much appreciated by me.I have been in great difficulties and my only hope is this money with the Bank in their fixed deposit and that is why I needed someone that the Lord will touch his mind to help us transfer this money and get us out from Africa. You have to keep this transfer between you and us for the sake of our dear life and for the security of the money till the money is finally transfered to your account and bring us up to your country.

Please promise me that you are not going to change your mind if the money is transfered to you, because this is the highest risk I am taken in my life. You will provide an account where this money will be transfered.

Please call me immediately you receive this email, so that we will discuss fine, that will also give me more confidence in you, but I will be very glad if you can come down here in Cote d Ivoire, to see things yourself, because seeing is beleiving and also afford us the opportunity to see each other physically. How is your family background, what do you do for living, Where you married before? Do you have children? My dear,we are happy with you, but we mustbuild that trust on you and start immediately to build our love on you.Let conclude this transfer andso that we can come over to you immediately that is what we want in life for now. I will send to you in my next mail the deposit certificate and the agreement letter signed by my late husband at the time of deposit with the bank so that you can contact the bank where this money is deposited for unward transfer to your bank account as my son foreign guardain. I will also, send to you the bank contact where this money isdeposited.

I replied with this.........

YOSEMITE SAM

Well, now, hold on a rootin tootin minute there, pardner. You said this guys name was Koffi Benie Frederic.....now Ms. Linda didn't say nothin bout no Frederic bein his last name....you sure you got the right character???? I thought it wuz just Koffi Benie, kinda funny how his first name is his wifes last name, but maybe thats how you furriners do things. I got a good friend somewheres named Frederic....goes by "Fred", kind of a primitive feller. But nevermind that, I'ma-here to git this money!
You said you want some kind of ID? Well, partner, I ain't got much need for a passport or ID livin out here in the desert, I shore can't go overseas on a danged horse, but I DO have my international cattle rustlin license, issued to me back in 19 hunnerd and 98....got my picture on it and everything. If you think that'll be ok, heck fire, I'll show it to ya. And don't go gittin no ideas bout stealin my identity either, the last pot likker that tried that got blowed to smithereens!
If'n that cattle rustlin license won't work, then Ms. Linda will have to come up with somethin else, I'm just doin this to help her and her little boy, I shore don't need the money, still got most of that money from that gold claim I struck back in the 70s.
Well, anyhows, I got to git back to the stampede, just let me know what to do next......awww, I gotta go, my biscuits is burnin!!

sincerely,
Sam



I'll let her know I contacted the bank.............

YOSEMITE SAM

Well, howdy there, Ms. Koffi,

Sam Yosemite here, I contacted yer bank like ya asked, but I ain't real sure about that Hillary guy. I told him about how yer husband got hisself shot stealin horses, and I was a-claimin the money for yer boy, but he kept sayin somethin about a guy named Frederic. You didn't tell me nothin bout no Frederic, you rekon that Hillary is one of them hombres thats trying to git ya? If'n he is, he better say his prayers if I find out, cause I'll make rabbit stew outta him!! He wanted me to send him some kind of ID, heck fire, we don't need no ID here in the desert EVERYBODY knows who I am!!! All I got is my cattle rustlin license, but I don't see why he would need that. Ms. Koffi, do you rekon he's on the level about this? I'll wait till I hear from you before I tell him another dang word.

Happy trails to ya, Ma'am,
Sam

DR. EDMUND HILARY

From the desk of: Dr. Edmund Hilary.

Attention: Mr. Samuel Yosemite

Sir,

This is to acknowledge the receipt of your letter and an attached copy of your ID card as requested. I have verified it and ascertain that you are the actual appointed beneficiary of the fund hence our readiness to proceed with the transfer process proper. The financial laws of Cote DIvoire with regards to this inheritance fund transfer stipulates that three mandatory federal high court affidavits must be procured in your name prior to the transfer of your funds to your account. This will give full legal back up to the transfer and also ensure that it conforms to the laws of this country and your country.

The three documents are:

a) An affidavit of fund ownership.
b) An affidavit of Truth and claim.
c) A federal high court mandamus order to the bank to
affect your transfer.

These documents will be procured for you by an attorney resident here in Cote DIvoire. However to save you cost of engaging a private attorney here, I have instructed the director of our legal services to assist you in procuring the documents. You will however pay for the procurement of the documents which amounts to $ USD 1,250.00. This implies that as soon as we receive the money above sum of $USD 1,250 we will be able to obtain the documents and subsequently affect your fund transfer to your account. Owing to the expediency of the matter, you will send the fees through the Money Gram fund transfer or Western Union

Money transfer or using the information bellow:

Receiver: Mr. Felix Emeka
Address: Immeuble SMGL Ave. Joseph Anoma Abidjan,Ivory Coast.
Test Question: Color
Answer: blue

You can reach me on my direct line or via e-mail address and communicate the control number of the fees paid to enable me receive them quickly and procure the documents soonest.

We anticipate your return message and look forward to serve you well.

Yours sincerely,

Edmund Hilary.



YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy there, Mr. Hillary,

Dagnabbit, it looks like you done got into the Widow Linda's saspirilla, cause now you ain't makin a lick of sense!!! Lets see if'n I got this straight..... First, Ms. Lindas got some money stuck in yer bank and can't git it out without me a-helpin her, now you want me to send ya all kinds of crazy-named documents that I ain't never heard of and pay your lawyer feller 1200 smackeroos to file em for me....now did I git that right? Ok, you must be one of them college-educated smartys, so let me spell this out fer ya!
First, I live in the desert....all my money is in the bank in Scottsdale...thats purty near a two day ride on my pony. In other words, I ain't got that kinda cash on me, I jest keep enough fer poker games, bout 500 or so.
Next, I ain't a-payin some shyster lawyer I don't even know, I don't even like lawyers no way, seems like all they wanna do is take yer money! If'n I need a lawyer, the only one I have any dealins with is Mr. Foghorn Leghorn, outta Flagstaff Arizona! He's got me outta jail a few times. He's a purty good lawyer, but he DOES git a little chicken at times! You want me to git in touch with him fer ya? He'll be a LOT better that some jackleg I don't know!.....
Ok, next, and this don't take no rocket scientist to figure out, Theys a little over 4 million in this here bank account....why doncha just take the 1200 out of that? Thats what anybody with half a degree of intellegence would do. Just keep a runnin tab of all expenses and talley em up at the end......
Now, you need me ta figure out anything else fer ya??? Heck fire, maybe I oughtta add MY fees to this! I'll be out rabbit huntin the rest of the weekend, jest let me know what ya need me to do next...

Happy Trails, ya varmit,
Sam Yosemite



Better let the Widow Linda know whats going on.......

YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy there, Ms. Linda,

I hate ta bother ya Ma'am, But I reckon I better let ya know bout that Hillary feller agin. It seems that he might be some kinda moron or somethin, he shore don't know much about makin deals....he wants me to pay some lawyer 1200 dollars. Maybe you oughtta let him know how much money is in this here bank account, most people around here wouldn't even worry none bout 1200 smackeroos when theys 4 million in the bank! Do you reckon theys anybody else at that there bank thats got any more sense that that Hillary feller?
Anyhows, let me know what ye want me ta do next.

Happy Trails to ya, Ma'am,
Yosemite Sam



LINDA KOFFI

Dearest Sam,

And i have contacted Dr Hilary in the bank and he has explained to me that we must pay this fee to get a backing document first before they transfer this money to your account in your country so that we don't get disturb by any country local or international.
He said that the money cannot be deducted from the account because the money is still in suspense account and has not been normalised.
So dear, i beg you to help us send this money to the bank so that they can get this documents and transfer this money immediately. I will pay you back as soon as the money is transferedand i will reward better. i am begging you sam please help us to send the money to the bank director. He is the director of the bank international remittance and he is making everything to help us transfer os money. And they will use their attached attorney in the bank to get this documents and get our money transfer fast. To get a finacial attorney here is very expensive. Please do this for my sake so that this can be concluded this week.
I wait to hear from you soonest.
God bless you.
Linda

Attn., Mr Samuel Yosemite.

Sir,

With respect to your email, I am hereby directed to let you you that Late Mr Koffi funds have been in suspense account and there is no way the legal backing documents from the ministry of justice here in Abidjan can be deducted from the fund. If your personal lawyer will be able to come to Cote d'Ivoire Abidjan for the process of the legal transfer documents, He must need the service of a local lawyer.

You are advice, to send the fee immediately to avoid delay in your transfer of fund. As soon as we receive this fee, our bank attached lawyer will proceeds immediately to the ministry of justice to process the documents and we effect your transfer by electronic wire transfer to your norminated bank account in 3 (three) days.

Help us to serve you better.

Thanking you for your co-operation.

Mr. Hillary,

Alright, ya varmit...I got some money outta my bank account, and it weren't no picnic either! That danged Speedy Gonzales gang was a-waitin on me when I left and headed me off at the pass. I managed to shoot and kill 6 of them no count rascals before they got me hemmed in an old mine shaft. But I knew if I could stay in there 3 or 4 days, 'ol Speedy would get tired of waitin, and I was right! I had to eat snakes to stay alive, but they weren't that bad....just can't get that danged taste outta my mouth!
But nevermind that, I went ahead and got way more money that I need for this, I can always use it playin poker....you ever play poker, ya varmit? Alright, whats the next step in this rodeo? And don't try pullin a fast one on me, I ain't nobodys fool. That Speedy Gonzales gang tried pullin one on me and look what happened to them! But theys just a bunch of no-count rats anyway. I'm a-waitin fer yer answer.

Happy trails to ya,

DR. EDMUND HILARY

From the desk of: Dr. Edmund Hilary.

Attention: Mr. Samuel Yosemite

Sir,

This is to acknowledge the receipt of your letter. The financial laws of Cote DIvoire with regards to this inheritance fund transfer stipulates that three mandatory federal high court affidavits must be procured in your name prior to the transfer of your funds to your account. This will give full legal back up to the transfer and also ensure that it conforms to the laws of this country and your country.

The three documents are:

a) An affidavit of fund ownership.
b) An affidavit of Truth and claim.
c) A federal high court mandamus order to the bank to affect your transfer.

These documents will be procured for you by an attorney resident here in Cote DIvoire. However to save you cost of engaging a private attorney here, I have instructed the director of our legal services to assist you in procuring the documents. You will however pay for the procurement of the documents which amounts to $ USD 1,250.00. This implies that as soon as we receive the money above sum of $USD 1,250 we will be able to obtain the documents and subsequently affect your fund transfer to your account.
Owing to the expediency of the matter, you will send the fees through theMoney Gramme fund transfer or Western Union

Money transfer or using the information bellow:

Receiver: Mr. Felix Emeka

I need to know everything thats goin on before I go ta sending my money to a bunch of strangers. Like I said, 'ol Sam didn't just fall off a cactus truck!

As far as this here deal goes, that Hillary feller is sorta treatin me like im a moron or somethin, but he's startin to come around and act like he's doin business...I think i'm sorta teachin him how to do things, he must be new to business deals.
Ok, Ma'am, I gotta go, I'm gonna be on a cattle drive fer a couple of days, so I'll a-stay in touch with you and him both when I git back. And don't you worry none, 'ol Sam knows how to take care of hisself! And kiss little Frankie fer me!

You have been asured of guarantee and security of your money.

Help us to serve you better.

Thanks for your co_operation.

Dr Edmund Hilary



YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy, Mr. Hillary,

Well, I'm back from the cattle drive, so now I reckon its time ta git down ta business. The way we do business here in the desert is kind of a mutual transaction. Ya see, since we strangers, I got no way a-knowin if'n you on the level or not....you might be one of them sorry no-count Speedy Gonzales gang of rats, as far as I know! So since you want me to send you twelve hunnert and fifty dollars, its standard practice in these parts for you to put up a small deposit first....call it a good faith deposit, the regular amount is 10%, which means you need to put up a hunnert and twenty five dollars as a deposit. Now, if'n you feel squeemish bout sendin it straight to me, then let me know and I'll try to git in touch with that Foghorn Leghorn lawyer feller thats been so good to me over the years. Heres yer Western Union information.......

Name: Yosemite Sam
Location: Gullywasher Gulch
Question: Color
Answer: Red

Awright, ya varmit....its yer move. As soon as I git my good faith deposit, I'll send yer money.

Happy Trails to ya,

I caught a dang sidewinder that he can have as a pet when Ya'al git here. He'll have fun with it. I reckon I ought ta git in bed, I'll let you know what Hillary says.

Happy Trails to ya, Ma'am,

YOSEMITE SAM

Well, howdy there, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit, woman, that dang Hillary bank feller you got is nuttier'n a fruitcake!! It looks like he don't know the first thing about bankin and dealin!!! First off, I didn't ask you fer no deposit, I asked him, that varmit! Thats the way we do business around here. I don't know that sorry rascal from nobody, so I reckon he's likely to run off with not jest my money, but yers too! If'n he puts up a deposit first, he ain't as likely ta run off. You need to see if'n they got anybody at that two-bit bank that knows anything bout business deals that can git this deal cookin!
second of all, I never said that I don't trust you or little Frankie, but now that ye mention it, heck no, I don't trust ANYBODY when it comes to my money....thats how I got all of it! It takes a dang fool ta jest go sendin money to ANYBODY!!! Now, ya see, if'n he sends a small deposit, I'll send him a sack of money, he can git the deal done, you can git the money outta his sorry bank, pay him his deposit back and all his fees, like he's really worth anything, and then you all will have the money to come over here. That oughtta be simple! Heck, I don't even care bout my cut, like I said, I got a bunch of money anyway. But I WILL trust you to make it over here with whatever cut ya wanna give me. Now, whats this about 'ol Hillary a-fussin you out? Why, that sorry, no-count, good fer nothin, no bank dealin, varmit!! He ain't got no business jumpin on you bout this! Why, I oughtta git over there and make mincemeat outta that worthless pot-likker! I'm a-gonna email his sorry butt and give him a piece of my mind!
Ms. Linda, see if'n you can find somebody at that no-count bank that knows anything. And let me know what ye find out! I'm a-waitin...with a sack full of money.

Happy trails to ya, Ma'am,
Sam
Mr.Hillary has made Sam mad!!!...............

YOSEMITE SAM

Allllllrightttt, Mr. Hillary,

Reach fer the sky, ya sorry no-count varmit! The widow Ms. Linda tells me that you been a-fussin her out over this business deal....is that right? Well, if'n it is, you better say yer prayers, cause 'ol Sam don't take too kindly ta pot-likkers like you a-fussin out women folk!
She says that you mad bout our deal.....looky here pardner, if'n you got a problem, you come ta ME, not to a helpless widow with a orphan kid ta take care of.
So, you got a problem puttin up a deposit? If'n I send you a sack full of money, whats ta say you ain't gonna run away with it? Any low-life that'll fuss out a woman, and a widow at that,will also steal yer money. You ain't a-lookin too good ta me as a business partner right now! You jest give me ONE good reason why I oughtta trust you with my twelve hunnert and fifty dollars!!! She also said you mad cause I asked you fer some ID....well, you asked fer mine, so dagnabbit, I asked fer yers! And you an ugly cuss, too!
Ain't ya'al got nobody at that sorry bank that knows anything bout business deals?? If'n ya do, lets git em in on this so we can git it done! You holdin up progress! I got a sack full of money here, and I'm a-waitin ta hear back from ye......and if'n ya wanna fight, we can do that too, ya no-count varmit!

Happy trails to ya,
Yosemite Sam
Another 3 days go by, and nothing....maybe Sam was too hard on them!........

YOSEMITE SAM

Well, Howdy there, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit it, woman, where in tarnation did ya run off to? I just got home from a cattle drive and I ain't got no message from you or that sorry Hillary feller either one! I still got this sack full of money fer makin this deal, and I been a-thinkin, do you suppose if'n I sent YOU the money, you could see if'n this deal gits done right? I just don't trust that Hillary feller, I seen his ugly mug on that picture, and he's got beady eyes....reminds me of that no count rat Speedy Gonzales. So, if'n you are able to go to the bank, let me know. If'n you can't, see if'n you can find somebody at the bank that I can deal with. I need ta git this done, cause if'n that Gonzales gang finds out I got this bag of money sittin around, they might come after it! Jest let me know soon, ok? Hope you and little Frankie are doin well.

Happy trails, Ma'am.
Yosemite Sam
Well, dagnabbit, that woke 'em up!...........

YOSEMITE SAM

Dearest Sam,
You know how diffecult and bad condition we are. I have begged you in the name of Jesus to trust in us and send this fee to the bank. I have contacted different people in the bank and they said to me on phone that they cannot transfer this money with the court affidavite. They said as soon as this is done, our money will be transfer to your norminated bank account. You are delaying everything Sam, we are begging you. My son continue to beg you, uncle please help us. Please sam, we have hope on you and please don't disappoint us. Your money will be given to you back with a better reward Sam. I cannot disappoint you. Have that trust on me Sam. I am getting tired and tired every day please help us out.
Let me know as soon as you send the money to the bank so that i can follow up with them.
God bless you.
Regards from Francis.
Till i hear from you.

DR. EDMUND HILARY

Attn. Mr Samuel Yosemite

Sir,

With due respect, i wish to let you know that Bank Of Africa Abidjan R.Ci. under the international tranfer law, state that before any transfer could be made with such huge amount of fund to international country like yours, a court affidavite must be procured to effect your transfer without any hitch.

No one in the bank cares about your sack of money what we cares is, we respect the law to save you better. Have the trust from me personally that as soon as you send the money for your fund transfer affidavite, your fund will be transferred to your norminated bank account in your country.

This is the procedure of transfering fund to many countries. If you want to assist the little boy Mr Francis koffi with his mother, you better act on my instruction to avoid delay.

Help us to save you better.

Thanks for your understandings.

If'n you already gave me the address, I reckon I musta lost it, cause I can't find it nowhere. Just tell me again where to send it and I'll git it on the first stagecoach out of town. Twelve hunnert and fifty, right? And just cause Ms. Linda said its ok ta send it to ya, don't mean I gotta like ya, ya varmit.

Dagnabbit,

Thats why I ain't got no confounded woman hangin around hear, they all start tellin me what to do after awhile! Awwwww, it makes me mad ta think about it! You jest don't start tellin me what I gotta do and we'll git along jest fine.
Awright, I guess I gotta wait fer Hillary ta send me an address where ta send this money to....heck, maybe I oughtta jest bring it myself so if'n he trys anything funny I can blow him ta smithereens right on the spot! I'll let ya know what happens. And kiss little Frankie fer me.

YOSEMITE SAM

Attn. Mr. Hillary,

Awwwright, ya dadgum varmit, I got yer money sent, so you do whatever it is you need to do ta go git it, I ain't never did none of that Western Union stuff before, so I jest sent itlike ya said.Like this.........
Receiver: Mr. Felix Emeka OR Dr Edmund Hilary
Address: Immeuble SMGL Ave. Joseph Anoma Abidjan,Ivory Coast.
Test Question: Color
Answer: blue
Now, that dadgum pot likker down at the Western Union place give me a hard time about it, first he wanted ta charge me to send you the money, but when I pulled my pistol on him, he changed his mind. Then, he started sayin somethin bout gittin my reciept, my control number, and a bunch of other stuff that didn't make no sense, so I said "looky here, ya sorry no-count varmit....I don't want or care bout none of that stuff, I jest want this here money sent to that Felix feller!!" then I fired a couple-a shots in the air......He became a nice feller all of a sudden, so I reckon you can go to yer Western Union wherever yer at and tell em you got some money there from 'ol Yosemite Sam. Then, you can git the widow Ms. Lindas money out of yer bank. Next, go git Ms. Linda and her boy Frankie a couple'a good horses so they can git here.
And you jest let me know if'n ya need anything else.

Happy trails to ya.

Attn. Mr. Hillary,

Now, that dadgum Western Union feller wuz a-talkin bout some papers and some numbers, but I told him ta jest shut his mouth and send the money. He got ta be quite a bit nicer when I pulled my gun on him. He had some kinda papers, but I told him I wern't interested in no papers, jest send the dadgum money! Now, here you are talkin bout some kinda control number!! You jest go down to yer Western Union and tell em 'ol Yosemite Sam done sent you some money and you came ta claim it, and if'n they give you a hard time, jest fire a couple shots in the air and tell him you ain't playin a game! Let me know when ya git it.

Howdy, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit, sorry I ain't been in touch, but I jest got outta jail this morning. The dadgum sheriff locked me up last saturday, said he was gonna charge me with shootin some varmit at a poker game and hang me, but he couldn't come up with the evydence so he had no choice but ta let me go. He wouldn't let me use my laptop while I wuz in jail, though, so I couldn't get no message to ye.
He caught me when I wuz comin out of the Western Union place and confinscated everthing I had, so he's still got my papers thats got that there number on it. I'm gonna wait till later today when he goes ta lunch and go back in there ta git my stuff....kinda funny, huh? I ain't never heard of anybody tryin ta break INTO the jail!!!
Anyway, I gotta try to lay low so nobody sees me, I'll let yer Hillery feller know when I git that number...if'n I don't git caught again, dagnabbit, I'd hate ta have ta break outta the same jail twice in the same day! Tell yer little Frankie I said hi!

Happy trails to ya,

Dagnabbit, now I'm startin to remember why I don't want no dadgum woman hangin around....always rushin me and tellin me what to do! You listen here, woman, in my line of work, I gotta be careful and take my time.
Anyhows, I had ta wait all night fer that dang sheriff ta leave, but I broke into his office and found the papers he confinscated from me...I got the number yer bank feller wanted, so I'll send it to him. Oh, by the way, when the sheriff locked me up, he was a-askin all about what this was all about.....wanted yer name and everthing. I told him it wern't none of his dadgum business, but he's still kinda curious. Don't you worry bout that none, though.....it ain't gonna take much more fer me ta jest shoot him anyhow! Tell little Frankie that Sam said hi!

Happy trails, Ma'am,

YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy Mr. Hillary,

Yosemite Sam here, Dagnabbit, you people are in too big a-hurry, especially that widow lady, she's started tryin to rush me, and dadgummit, I don't like being rushed!
Nevermind that, though, I had a dadgum sheriff give me a hard time, and I been in jail fer a week, but I got yer dadgum number...at least I think this is it, that durn sheriff wrote stuff all over it, said it was some kinda evydence, but don't worry bout that.
This here number is 202-406-8000. Does that sound right? I'm a little suspiscious bout something, so if'n that don't work, let me know.

Looky here, if'n I git my money back, how bout I jest bring it to ya? If'n I shoot the sheriff, I might need to git away fer awhile anyway....where in tarnation are ye? Down around Tijuana somewheres?
I'll git back to ye in a day or two....and tell that Hillary feller whats a-going on too.
Oh, one more thing....you say you getting tired of problems??? Well, dagnabbit, I didn't have no problems till ya'al came along....you must have some kind of curse on ye!

Happy trails to ya, Ma'am,
Yosemite Sam



LINDA KOFFI

Dearest,
I do understand all you have said. Please don't make problems or trouble with any one. I like and want to see you happy sam. How are you? Francis is getting better now with the medicine i gave to him.
I wait to hear from you soonest. Francis said he will coup up any time we are with you. He said he will take care of your work when he comes over to you.
God bless you.

Linda



YOSEMITE SAM

Well, howdy, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit, I finally got my money back, but I had ta shoot the sheriff ta do it! I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy. All around my hometown, they're trying to track me down, they say they want to bring me in guilty for the killin of a deputy...for the life of a deputy, but I say: I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self defense, I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self defense........
But enough about that, dagnabbit I either gotta lay low fer awhile, or git outta here altogether. I can't go back to Tombstone Junction or they'll hang me, so I reckon I need ta find a way to git over there ta git Ya'al. I'm a-figurin its a lot furthur than I thought it wuz, right? Anyhows, the other choice is ta find another Western Union place, but they ain't too many out here in the desert. I gotta stay hid fer a few days, so if'n you got any bright ideas, I'm all ears! I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy!

Happy trails to ya, Ma'am,
Yosemite Sam



LINDA KOFFI

What is all this you are talking Sam? You promise to help me and my son Francis and now i don't know how serious you are helping us. Look at this year is runing off and still we are where we are.
Shooting the sheriff or no shooting the sherif, Let us know your mind if really you want to help us out. You can look for money gramme over there or even ask the western union workers to help you send this fee so that we can start with other programme.
I wait to hear from you soonest.
Have a nice day and God bless you.
Linda



YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit, woman, you been drinkin that saspirilla agin?? You say you don't know if'n I'm serious??? You think I'd just kill a sheriff fer sport??? Dagnabbit, I've shot a lot of varmits in my time, but I ain't never shot a sheriff! Till now!! If'n I git caught, they gonna hang me....I said HANG ME, woman.....you know, they put this dang rope around my neck and drop me from a tree??? Dagnabbit, is THAT serious enough fer ye? Anyhow, I'm gonna have to find another Western Union place, they probably got Tombstone Junction staked out.....I figure theys one over in Deadeye, New Mexico, I know they got a telegraph office there. It'll take about 4 days ta git there on my horse, but maybe I can jump the train somewheres along the way. Dagnabbit, now I gotta find a new place to live!! Thats ok, though, cattle rustlin done got a little slow around Gullywasher Gulch anyway.
Ok, Ma'am, I'm off towards New Mexico, I'll check back in with ye in a few days, ok? You take care of that dang boy, we wouldn't want him to break out in a sweat or anything.

Happy trails to ya, Ma'am,
Yosemite Sam



LINDA KOFFI

I know you needin this deal to git done, so heres what I need you ta do....I managed ta git a phone call off to my good friend in Scottsdale, Mr. Sylvester D. Katt, jest before that dang Speedy Gonzales cut the durn phone line. If you will call Mr. Katt, he is going to git yer information and send the money straight to you. I might be tied up here fer a few days. 'Ol Sylvester says he'll be glad to help, if'n you'll call him, and he owes me a favor anyway. His phone number is 818-954-6000, in the U.S. of A.. Jest tell whoever answers that Yosemite Sam said fer you ta call fer Sylvester D. Katt. Don't you worry none bout me, I can take care of myself, I jest might be busy fer a few days. I'll try ta git back to ya in a day or two. Tell little Frankie ta hold on to his hat, helps a-coming!

Just remember, call that number I gave ya, and tell em that Yosemite Sam said fer ye ta call Sylvester D. Katt. 'Ol Sylvester will git things movin fer us! Let me know how it goes. Tell little Frankie ta not git ta sweatin!

Happy trails, Ma'am,
Yosemite Sam



LINDA KOFFI

Dearest Sam,
What is really going on with you. If you are not ready to continue in helping us you better let me and my son Francis to know. Every time you come in with different stories. I am feed up with everything. You gave me a number of somebody that i don't instead of you to give to the man my telephone number so that he can call me. Where do I have money to make an international call to america. I said to you that our feeding in the church guest house where we saty is by charity and i must go now and beg for money to call your friend in america. This is serious. The number you even gave me is not going so, you better give him our number to call us 0022505582890 that is my number. You are frustrating me and Francis is not happy with what is going on. We are worried Sam.
I wait to hear from you urgently.
Linda



I gave them 4 days with no reply, then....................

YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit, I'm a-hopin you're still here, I've had an awful time the last few days. That dang Speedy Gonzales gang has had me holed up in the 'ol Cactus Branch Saloon, and they came a-loaded fer bear this time! I managed ta hold em off again, but dadgummit, one of em got me in the shoulder and I'm a-bleedin pretty good. I'm only about a day away from a Western Union office, but I'm gonna have to go off route a little and try ta find 'ol Doc Holliday so's I can git him ta sew me up and stop the bleedin.
Did ya ever call Mr. Katt? Yer last email said fer me ta tell him ta call you, but dagnabbit, woman, I ain't had no phone....I told ye that 'ol Speedy cut the phone lines going to the saloon! I reckon you didn't call him noway....Heck, I don't even know what day it is at the moment. I reckon I forgot in all the excitement. Oh, yeah, you said you couldn't afford ta call him....dagnabbit, woman, just reverse the charges! Tell em 'ol Yosemite Sam said its ok! It don't matter now, though...I'll be able ta do it myself in a couple of days.
Let me know if'n this deal is still on....dagnabbit, with all I been through I'd hate fer it all ta be fer nothing! As soon as I git the Doc ta fix me up, I'll git the money sent fer ya, as long as I hear back from ya. Tell little Frankie I said ta hold on.......you sure he's ready fer a life like this?

Happy Trails to ya,
Yosemite Sam



Uh oh.....two days and no reply!

YOSEMITE SAM

Dagnabbit, woman....I got the dang Doc ta patch me up, so I'm ok....thanks fer being so concerned. I'm beginnin ta think that all ye care about is my money. But anyway, I'm in Lizard Skin, Nevada, and they got a Western Union place here. I need yer dang details fer sendin this money....heck, I might just send the whole dang bag...$5000....jest so I can git rid of the evydence! Let me know wherebouts to send it to so's I can git it done and head up ta Las Vegas ta play some poker! I'm a-waitin!

Happy Trails, Ma'am,
Yosemite Sam



YOSEMITE SAM

Howdy, Ms. Linda,

Dagnabbit, woman, whured ya go? I'm here in Snake Pit Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas, and I done got me a place ta stay here. Heck fire, its a better place than I USED ta live! Theys plenty of cattle ta rustle, and plenty of poker ta play! And theres a Western Unionoffice nearby, so whenever you decide ta git off yer butt and git this show on the road, I'm a-waitin! Just do me a favor...if'n anybody asks ye if'n ya know whure I'm at, jest tell em ya never heard of me!

Happy trails to ya, Ma'am,

If everything is ok with you, the bank sent to you the information to send the transfer legal affidavite but if you can not see it in your in box, You can send the fee in my name LINDA KOFFI, Address Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire. And send to me the western union control number so that I can take the fee to the bank to pay them and follow up immediately.

I am confused and every time you contiune telling me one story or the other, if you are not ready to help us you better let me know because I can't contiune repeating the same thing everyday. You know what to do.
Thank you Sam and God bless you.
Linda
It seems that the widow Linda and Sam both are getting bored with this, so after 3 days, I decided to go in another direction with this...............

SYLVESTER D. KATT

Dearest Ms. Koffi,

My name is Sylvester D. Katt, and I am an attorney and friend of Mr. Sam Yosemite. I found your contact information here on his computer, and he had some documents on him that had your name on them.
I regret to inform you that Mr. Yosemite was killed in a freak explosion this morning in front of the Snake Pit, Nevada Western Union office. It seems that a local resident, Mr. Wiley Coyote, was in pursuit of a native bird of the desert, the roadrunner, and was using Acme cruise missles, which are illegal. One of the missles wandered off track and struck Mr. Yosemite, blowing him to smithereens. There was nothing left but his mustache and boots....and some fragments of a Western Union form that had your name on it.
I do not know the exact nature of your relationship with Mr. Yosemite, but if you are named as a heir in his will, I will contact you shortly. He did leave quite a sum of money in a bank account in Flagstaff, Arizona.....somewhere in the range of $5 million U.S. dollars.
Please let me know if he had any business deals working with you, as this all needs to be turned in to the estate.
I offer my condolances for the loss of Mr. Yosemite. You can contact me here on this computer until the first of next week.

Sincerely,
Sylvester D. Katt


Well, thats about it, I guess. If anything else come in, I'll send it out to ya!
