DARK SHADOWS OVER THE LADS


From 2002, reformatted for readability

Says our Kindly Contributor:
Why Barnabas Collins? I just finished watching some Dark Shadows dvds and he was the first character to come to mind. I'm ashamed to have unintentionally misspelled his name as Barnabas, but this may actually not have been a bad idea. I also deliberately avoided mentioning Collinsport so that the scammers wouldn't be able to search the Internet and locate any telling references.

Subject: URGENT RESPONSE NEEDED

Dear Roberts,

I am Barrister EJOR DANIEL, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr. Pitt Roberts, a national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2000, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along sagbama express road.

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$13 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Security Finance Firm where this huge amount were deposited. The said Security Finance company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confisicated within the next fourteen official working days.

For the fact that I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased, since you have the same last name with my client, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.

I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through this email: (danielejor@lawyer.com ) or through my direct telephone number 234-803-334-8897 for more details.

Best regards,

Barrister EJOR DAN(SAN).

My Dear Mr. Daniel,

If it is alright with you we should call each other by our first names. This is the secret to my past success in business as it keeps all our transactions on a personal level. So please address me as Barnabas in the future and not Roberts. If you are agreeable to this I think we will get along fine.

I was shocked on the matter with which you are contacting me. My second cousin Pitt (a true-blue Roberts) and I played together when we were young, and now I must hear that he is no longer with us. And so senseless a death as a car accident.

We must definitely take measures to assure that his financial legacy is not seized by these scoundrels at the Security Finance Firm on the shaky pretext that there is no next of kin. For you have found him dear Ejor. I am Pitt's second cousin.

You originally wrote to my public address. Please direct all correspondence to this email. In this way we can assure absolute secrecy to our transactions.

Please tell me how we can move things forward.

Most sincerely yours,

Barnabas

Dear Barnabas,

Thanks for your response. I assume that we are now set to begin the real transfer process. In this case, you will need to re-assure me of your assistance in facilitating the transfer and my due share of the fund thereafter.

This is to re-assure you that I will do my possible best to earn your trust as we proceed, because the truth must prevail, but one is a little at lost as to what evidence you will need to satify your curiosity and avoid any possible doubts.

Since we have not really started with the transfer documentation, the only documented evidence readily in my mind is sending you the Death certificate of Mr Pitt Roberts and copies of my Office Identification/Complimentary cards probably by tomorrow. I will then APPRECIATE you to send your's to me upon receipt of mine, for better acquaintance, trust and confidence which is essential to the success of our transaction. We shall also be complementing this with regular telephone discussions.

However, Let me quickly start by expressing my delight again at your response to my proposal. I will then leave the rest to God with the fullest conviction that our efforts so far would be blessed by his grace.

There is nothing more to add in respect of our working relationship, as I assume that you have accepted my said proposal and heard of my honest position. Be assured that the procedures to be adopted in processing and effecting the transfer is fully official and legal. But let me impress it on you that this will demand of us some finacial obligations in respect of official expenses to be incured in the course of documenting the claim and transfer in your favour.

In as much as I have assured you that all the major requirements to be demanded by the finance company are within my disposal and reach, there are some which we shall have to acquire through laid down legal processes at the court. None the less, I have made my personal arrangement for this expenses, and would only call for your assistance.

Having said that, let me brief you with the official processes to be involved in the transaction. Our main focus is to first, present you to the finance company as the next of kin to my late client, and further apply that his entitlement be transfered to you through the said legal processes.

We shall start by sending a formal application to this effect. I will copy you with the text of the said claim and transfer application to this effect. You will be required to send the application directly to the finance company by fax. The text of the application will follow at the bottom of this message.

Thereafter, the finance company will request of you the relevant back up documents to your claim and application according to the demand of our probate law for tansfer of inheritance. I am on the stand by to provide you with all their requirements from the stock of documents which is presently with me. Otherwise, I will facilitate our acquisition of any one demanded outside my possesion.

Once we have provided the finance company with their demands, they would now be under legal obligation to transfer the funds to your submitted bank account. Please note that your application of claim will be complimented by all legal award we shall have to seek from the federal high court. You are not to worry about this, as I will easilly secure that with the benefit of my professional competence and influence. It will only cost us some official expenses.

As we proceed, the processes and demands of this transaction will become clearer to you. All we need do now is to commence operation effectively by getting you to send the claim application to the finance company. This will follow at the end of this message, including the sending instruction.

Finanlly, I want to remind you again of the need and importance of utmost confidentiality and your full adhereance to my instruction to our success. With all due respect, I expect the highest level of your compliance to my instructions, even when they seem foolish in your view. I am the expert and anchorman here, and must be granted all the benefit of doubt in the discharge of my professional expertise.

Let me also remind you that you must be willing to commit not just your financial contribution to the processing of the transfer, but you must be ready to give it the time and attention it demands.

Once these understanding are perfectly implemented, then we are bound to meet in your country to celebrate our successful transaction in a matter of days.

Above all, I personally count on the will and blessing of the almigthy God to facilitate our plan and understanding, to produce not just success, but also peaceful sharing of the funds at the end of the day and a healthy family business relationship thereafter.

I then expect you to send the following text application immediately to the finance company's fax number: 234-1-7596330.or Email: citytrust-fin@financier.com

Please Could you kindly call me upon receipt of this message for voice identification and forward immediately the application to the Finance Company. My direct number is: 234-803-334-8897.

I await for your call,

Regards,

Barr.DANIEL.

(ON BEHALF OF THE ROBERTS'S FAMILY)

Barnabas Collins

Dear and Most Honorable Ejor,

Thank you for your comprehensive correspondence on the matter at hand. I have studied the material and have a wonderful counter-proposal to make that I believe will immediately convince you of its rightness.

I am a wealthy philanthropist with a respect for money and a strong belief in giving blood. My thoughts have been how best to dispose of this sudden windfall in a manner keeping with the name of Roberts and I have decided to entrust you with the realization of my exciting idea.

First I must explain a little about Pitt Roberts, whom I believe is my long lost second cousin. In the mid-sixties when we were both children and played together Pitt and I were inseparable friends. A family argument among our elders split the family apart, and all we know is Pitt's father took that branch of the family to Europe. Pitt's mother had died earlier during childbirth and we later learned that Pitt's father died in Europe of a rare blood disease that runs in our family. We have not heard from Pitt since.

This is the background for my proposal and I am positive that Pitt would have found it worthy of his name. I do not want a single penny of the money in question, rather I wish for you to open a trust fund entitled the "Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund" (please use this exact name). The funds, less a percentage to reward you for your role in the matter and to compensate you for your expenses, shall be transferred to the aforementioned trust fund and used for the worthy cause of making Sagbama Express Road safe*. Traffic lights and radar cameras must be installed, and speed limits enforced, if necessary by security personnel hired via the trust fund. I think if you make a list of the top ten most dangerous roads in the world, Sagbama Express Road makes it into the top five. I have done my own research and find it is not uncommon for entire families to be wiped out in fatal accidents on the Sagbama Road. Dependents of accident victims could also be supported by the funds, and perhaps a college education paid for, so that they will not be left destitute by their unfortunate destinies.

Please send me your thoughts on this matter. I realize that this requires you to redo some of the paperwork but this is insignificant. I assure you that you shall be compensated first out of the sum which finally will channel into the trust fund maintained and administrated by you. I therefore ask that you defer all charges until you have successfully moved matters to their close. This is in keeping with the philanthropic spirit of our enterprise and I daresay upon the completion of our project you will gain greatly in respect among your colleagues and may even achieve a high position in the ministry of justice.

Before we move forward on this I must be assured of one thing: The integrity of the Roberts' name must in no way be impaired. I am operating under the premise that Pitt is indeed my long lost second cousin, although this may not necessarily be the case. The name of Roberts is fairly common. In the Bangor, Maine telephone book alone there are more than 30 Robertses listed, and we are not all related. Concerning my telephone number, I prefer to conduct all business via e-mail. In this manner we have a concrete record of all our agreements and transactions, thereby avoiding the costly misunderstandings that originate out of verbal exchanges. I am sure this will be agreeable to you. Also, it prevents unscrupulous persons from eavesdropping on our conversations. I am a wealthy person and there are many people who would like to discover the secret to my business success.

Anyhow, before we proceed please confirm with documentation that the Pitt Roberts you represent is indeed the Pitt Roberts born May 4th, 1958. Please understand that this is important to me as I wish to protect my and your integrity. Can positive identification be made on the basis of the attached photo?

Effusive blessings,

Barnabas Roberts

P.S. Attached you find three pictures, my current picture, a picture of me as a child (taken during Halloween), and a photograph of Pitt taken when he was about eight years old, appearing with my late sister in a local magazine. Isn't the family resemblance striking?

P.P.S Perhaps we can save trouble and unnecessary fees by allowing the amount (minus your expenses and a fair percentage - would 20% be agreeable?) to remain in the depot of the Security Finance Firm. Please advise.

*The Sagbama Express Road is the scene of an astonishing number of ghastly motor accidents. Anecdotally, road accidents are one of the most frequent causes of death cited in '419' mails.

Thanks for your comprehensive mail concerning your brother Mr Pitt. I appreciate your willingness towards this transaction.

Moreso, I really commend and wellcomed your good idea on the plight you wished it(the fund) will be invested into, as benevolent man. Thanks for the good thinking.

Now, I will advise you to send the text application, which I coppied you to the Finance Company Immediately(if you have not sent it) for us to commence action immediately because We do not have time to spend.

Less I forget, I hope you got the Death Certificate of Mr Pitt that I sent to you.

In fact, I am very obliged to work with you in this regards. I wish to meet in you in person in time to come.

I wait to hear from you very soon. Stay Blessed

Dear Daniel,

I realize the urgency of our venture. But at this moment of the day I am not able to take care of the power-of-attorney formula. A rare blood malady has me bedridden during the days as I cannot stand intense light. I am in a darkened room in my bed now with the laptop and answering you. I will be able to take care of the papers tonight.

But you have left some questions unanswered:
1) what will be a fair percentage for you in sharing the inheritance?
2) is this the Pitt Roberts born in May 1958? (not my brother but potentially my second cousin). If possible, please supply documentation. This was not on the death certificate. If this is not the Pitt Roberts I knew I must decline my part in this transaction.

This evening I will arrange the papers for you but first I must insist on an answer to the above questions. I will check in the next few hours for a message from you.

Thank you and God's wishes,

Barnabas

Dear Daniel,

Your failure to respond has me rather suspicious as to the legitimate nature of the inheritance. I request two pieces of information before proceeding. Since time is very pressing I had expected a prompt response, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt, as you are certainly a busy man.

Before I can proceed with the matter I must know:
1) How shall the amount be split among us.
2) Is your client, Pitt Roberts, actually my cousin Pitt Roberts born on May 4th, 1958

Also, I have carefully read the form I must fill out and send back. It describes Pitt Roberts as my brother, which is openly false. Pitt Roberts is potentially my second cousin: see 2). Please send a new application.

Please, let's keep things moving forward. I hope for an early response.

Yours Sincerely,

Barnabas

Dear Barnabas

I just got your mails and saw how urgent you needed my reply. Today is a public holiday in my country in remark to our independence day rememberrance, I could not have written to you but for clarification gesture, I am writing to answer and clear your sceptics over this transaction.

First, I must not fail to acquaint you on the documents at hand about your Cousin, sorry for possing him as your brother in the application text. He is my client and nothing else. I am involved in this transaction today because I was his legal adviser during the period he deposited this fund with the Finance Company for save custody. I strongly believe that he is your cousin when I saw the pictures you sent to me and his age. More importantly, I am not in the position of his birth certificate, But I can remember that he told me when he was alive that his age is between 42years and 45years. Based on this, I had to swear an affidavit on age declaration, which was submitted to the hospital on the issue of his Death Certificate for the clarification of the cause of his death. And with your descriptions about him, it made me to believe that he is your cousin especially, when you pointed at the age branket he told me.

Second, in the share of this inheritance, I wish to give you 55%, 5% for any expenses that will be incurred by any of us, while the remaining 40% is for my humble self for the work, which I have and still been doing for your cousin and yourself. I am very happy to have got in contact with the real next of kin to my deceased client (MR PITT ROBERTS). I pray to meet you in person someday after this transaction. For more clarification on the sharing, if you are not satisfied on what I have just said, do not hesitate to get back to me immediately. I will not dictate for you in your cousin's wealth, but note that "what is good is worth doing well". Without me, you would not know about this. So treat me fairly in this transaction as I am being fair to you in this transaction. Let us avoid greed. Honest should be our watch word and attribute.

Below attached is the amendment you requested, in the application text, which you will send very urgently to the finance company

I am waiting to hear from you as soon as possible

Date: October 2, 2002

Dear Daniel,

Thank you for your considerate response. I am glad to hear that your country is now independent. It is not good when people are oppressed and have no reason to shoot off fireworks at least once a year.

You have assuaged my concerns about the matter of my family relationship to Pitt and the sharing of the inheritance. I have no more doubts. It is highly probable that Pitt was my cousin. I also do not mind the share you have allotted. In fact I am impressed by your honesty. You could have arranged to disappear with the entire amount. And this evening I watched a movie about Mexico which absolutely gave me a positive omen of our business. Guess who starred in the movie: Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts! Do you see how the name "Pitt Roberts" comes to me in an astonishing manner to tell me you are legitimate. This tells me that what we are doing is right. What do you think of it?

But now with your share of 40% the Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund which I wanted you to found with my share of the money will not be as full as I had hoped. My wishes were to have at least $10 million USD as a basis. So here is what I would like you to do: You open an account in your country and act as the administrator of my share of the money, which becomes the Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund. I will make up the difference of the money to bring it to $10 million USD in that memorial fund to make Sagbama Express Road safe and aid the dependents of families wiped out by fatal and tragic accidents at this venue. Maybe we can also open up the Pitt Roberts driving school. I am serious about this and hope you will assist by enabling me to transfer money to this cause. Are you in a position to help me with the formalities? As I am bedridden during the day hours I am in a poor position to arrange all necessary details.

So I will make contact with the Finance company and take care of the formality of the claim form.

Onwards,

Barnabas

To whom it may concern,

I am in contact with Barrister Daniel Ejor concerning account number 01433550018 left behind by Pitt Roberts. Pitt Roberts was my second cousin and I have received the application of claim from the honorable Mr. Ejor and Ejor esq.

As I understand there is some urgency to the matter. How may I best transmit the completed forms to you? Via the U.S. Post seems too slow, even if I invest in the more expensive air mail stamps. Sending as an e-mail attachment is fast but you will not have my valid signature as originally written. I am a recluse and do not have fax available to me. Which form would be most acceptable to you?

Anyhow, please accept this as a letter of intent and be advised that any attempt on your part to claim the funds of my cousin before receipt of my application will be treated most harshly by Mr. Ejor.

Dear Daniel,

It pleases me to inform you I have submitted the text application to the

finance company. I feel as if we have now cemented our business relationship, the fruits of which we shall all soon enjoy. Please tell me your age so I can decide whether to call you my son or my brother.

Now I suggest you begin with the details of the "Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund" as the money should soon become available. Please keep me informed of your progress.

This last day I was not well as the energy required to deal with the application was debilitating in my condition. I had to arrange a scanner to convert the application to fax-form for easy transmission to the finance company. This was at great risk of compromising information about our business to third parties. Also I was suddenly seized by the horrific thought of accidents occurring on the Sagbama road, especially during the independence day holiday, a time when people often drive with reckless abandon. Please assure me that there have been no families lost on that road in the last days and I will breath easier. But dear Daniel, do not worry about my condition. I have received an invigorating blood transfusion and feel my energetic self once more.

Dear Daniel,

I am a bit concerned that I haven't heard from you in two days now. In fact I have been imagining all sorts of horrors, for example that you drove your car into a brick wall on Sagbama road or even worse, had a head on collision with Mr. Ifeanyi Nnaji of the Finance company while driving to meet him to discuss my inheritance. But now Mr. Nnaji has sent the document you find in the attachment so I know at least he is still alive. I hope to hear also from you soon so that I can lay all my worst fears to rest. And please reassure me as to the Sagbama accident statistic of the past week. I fear it must have been tremendously high.

Anyhow, I have given more thought to the Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund. I want to start it off at $10 million USD. My share of the inheritance would be $7,150,000 USD. The difference of $2,850,000 USD will therefore have to be made up. Now the question is, how best to see this money through to you, so that you can install it in the fund? I look forward to your thoughts on this, as well as your advice as per the attached document.

I remain respectfully yours,

Dear Barnabas

How are you today? I hope you are alright.

However, like I explained to you on mail of 5th October 2002 that I will be going to the Probate Registry's office today being 7th October in order to secure the clarification of your inheritance probate tax and the award certificate of your cousin's (MR PITT ROBERTS) fund to your name.

Heretofore, I have gone to the Probate Registry's office first this morning before heading to my chamber; I was made to understand that you are supposed to pay 0.1% of your fund inheritance, which is thirteen thousand United States dollars (US$13,000).

The probate registrar pin-pointed that it is a compulsory tax according to the code of conduct of our rule of law and constitution act 11, sub sub-section 11c, which was quoted to me by the registrar that unless the BENEFACTOR of any said inheritance claim pays the above 0.1% of his/her inheritance claims as the mandatory probate tax, he/she will not be issued an award certificate on his or her inheritance claims.

Furthermore, have you forwarded the application text to the high court for the swearing of the affidavit of claims of your inheritance on your behalf?

I wait to hear from you as soon as possible for us to proceed. It is very urgent please.

Dear Daniel,

I am greatly relieved to hear from you as I thought you were in an automobile accident. Already I had imagined the worst. Until we have set up the Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund you must drive very carefully. You mention a correspondence you sent me on October 5th. I did not receive this. The last e-mail I have from you is dated October 2nd, so you can see and understand my concern. Possibly our e-mail correspondence is being manipulated by third parties. I have changed my e-mail password and suggest you do the same.

Your e-mail received today will most likely make more sense in context of the e-mail from October 5th which I did not receive. Perhaps you are in a position to re-mail it. Anyhow, I fail to understand how a tax can be levied on moneys that haven't been received yet. Any lawyer worth his weight in blood should be able to find a loophole to this. I hate to see you browbeaten by some incompetent registrar whose grasp of the law is most certainly inferior to yours. Quoting subsections to the great barrister Eeyore indeed! No one is going to make a jackass out of my attorney! Tell him we are trying to establish the Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund. Teach him a lesson! You have my fullest confidence!

Have you received my forward of the e-mail from the finance company? They requested several documents, including the death certificate of Pitt Roberts. This seems highly suspicious to me as they certainly know that Pitt Roberts is dead. Otherwise they would not be threatening to reclaim his funds. Something is not quite right here. They may be committing some sort of crime. Perhaps you should go down there to see Mr. Ifeanyi Nnaji and put him in his place.

Sincerely,

Barnabas

Subject : RESEND OF MY MAIL DATED 5TH OCTOBER 2002/ATTACHED APPLICATION TO THE HIGH COURT
Date : Mon, 07 Oct 2002

Dear Barnabas

Thanks for your mail of today. I wonder why you have not gotten the mail I sent to you on 5th of this month, does it mean you share your mail box with someone else? If it is so, it not proper and our business is not secured. Please take note.

On the issue of information I got from the Probate Registry, it has been an enacted law in this country expecially when it concerns the foreigners, there is a provison for that in our constitution. I would not want to argue him because I am a known attorney and it will be a let down on my personality if I go ahead telling the probate registrar that it is not obtainable while we the lawyers claim to know all in our constitution.

We have got to a long way in this transaction, and let us not waste our efforts towards this transaction success in vain. I will advise that we look for a way to settle this matter at hand before they suspect us, by trying to confiscate the fund, though, I will never allow such act to occur as long as I am alive. The saying goes"TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE" so let put heads together and solve this problem now before it becomes out of hands.

However, in respect of my mail to you dated 5th of october, which you did not get, I hereby resending it again. Below is the mail and view the attachment below too that followed it. In the attachment, you will see the application text that you will send to the FEDERAL HIGH COURT LAGOS-NIGERIA for the swearing on your behalf, the affidavite of claim of your cousin's inheritance. So send it immediately to the law court. Do not waste time please.

I wait to hear from you very urgently.

Barr. Daniel BELOW IS MY MAIL OF 5TH OCTOBER 2002 :

Dear Barnabas,

I am very sorry for not have communicated with you for two days now, really, I have been very busy with my clients in the law court.

I quite appreciate your response and the attached letter from the Finance Company.

However, I am much delighted with the new development so far, and have carefully studied the requirements. In view of this, I wish to let you know that the number (1) requirement, which is the Deceased Death Certificate, has earlier been sent to you. Please keep properly.

Coming to the number (2) and (3) requirements, these are no problem to us, as I will use my Professional Competence to secure them and would only cost me some token. Once this is done, you will be copied for your perusal and onward transmission to the Finance Company.

Moreso, the number (4) requirement is obvious and within the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court of Nigeria. In this case, the requested Affidavit of Claims and Facts would be secured through an application, which we shall forward to the High Court to make them eligible in processing the said Affidavit and further grant us other necessary Legal Clearance for Transfer of Inheritance to suit the demand and purpose. I hereby attached herewith the specimen of application as directed by the Registrar of the Court. Therefore, you are required to trans-type and forward it directly to the Court via this fax number: 234-1-4400582. or Email: federalhighcourt@post.com

Finally, once I am through with the Probate Registry early Monday being 7th October 2002, I will forward to you the requested letter awarding Mr. Pitt Roberts's Fund in your favour together with the evidence of Probate Tax Payment.

NB: Kindly open the below attachment for the Application which you shall forward to the Court. And also write to the Finance Company that you will be coming up with their requirements soonest.

Dear Daniel, You were right to be worried about me. My blood had to be replenished today. It's that rare disease, debilitating me in broad daylight. Now, after sunset it is becoming pleasant and my priority is to take care of the work at hand.

First, I was very surprised to receive your Saturday e-mail today, three days late! Furthermore an acknowledgement e-mail from the finance company dated October 3rd (last Thursday) arrived also. This is very suspicious. If only one e-mail had been delayed I would have suspected that the criminal authorities were monitoring our correspondence, possibly in investigation of some crime. This is done internationally if an e-mail account is thought to be used for illegal purposes. But I know that I have not committed any crime, and you certainly have nothing to fear either. But two late e-mails from two unconnected sources is highly remarkable. This must be something other than monitoring, although frankly, I don't know what to make of this. I have otherwise never had this problem. Perhaps you have some ideas.

Regarding the death certificate of Pitt Roberts, rest assured I am saving all relevant documents on my laptop, and a backup on diskette. I will write to the finance company immediately and tell them that you and I are taking care of the formalities related to the release of the money.

As soon as I am able to arrange a scanner, I will e-mail-fax the application for the court. In trying to uphold the secrecy of our transaction I cannot just visit a friend and ask him to scan the document for me. He would find out, and word would spread quickly. The court document also requires a witness. I will have to take someone into my confidence if I am to have a witness sign. What do you advise? Can you copy and paste your signature onto the document when I send it back to you?

Time is short and I will contact you as soon as possible with the completed court document.

In faith,

Barnabas

Daniel,

This wonderful night has been full of blessings. A lone traveler came to my door after sundown. His car had broken down near my property. Through force of my personality I compelled him to sign our document as a witness. I understand that the man's name is "William Loomis". I may keep him on in the servant's quarters to do work for me around the mansion. I am positively disabled during the day with this dreadful illness. When you finally join me here I will command him to you as your personal valet. I want your stay here to be very comfortable.

Mr. Loomis furthermore consented to walk to my nearest neighbor and borrow a scanner. So now we are able to consummate our transaction with the Nigerian court.

I got your mails and the contents were well understood. Thanks for your efforts so far and sorry for your illness.

I hope you have sent the application, which you copied me to the Federal High Court? Tell Mr Loomis that I will meet when I come over.

Furthermore, what is our motives towards the Probate Registry's required tax? Which is one of the requirements needed from you by the Finance Company. What are we doing to secure those documents? This is because you are going to send them to the Finance Company to enable them grant/approve the transfer of the inheritance in your name.

Subject: Plan of action
Date: October 10, 2002

Dear Daniel,

I have given much thoughtful consideration to the current fee requirements you mentioned, trying also not to lose touch with our long term interests. In a previous e-mail I described my concern about the Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund not starting at a level of $10,000,000 USD. We can start the fund at this amount if I make up the difference of $2,850,000 USD. This I am willing and only too eager to do. However, I will not trust any bank to transfer an amount of this magnitude, indeed I would hesitate to transfer even the relatively minor amount of $13,000.

But I see a way to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, maybe bloodless, but we'll see. I firmly believe the best solution is to depot the Pitt Roberts Memorial trust fund in Europe, which is closer to and has better connections with your country than the United States. I have consulted with my physician about making the trip myself. In fact he wholeheartedly recommends I undertake a journey by rail to Rumania, the home of my distant ancestors, for my health. We would meet in Iceland, I would turn over the money to you, you would take care of the formalities of establishing the trust fund with the initial $2,850,000 USD and fly back home with the remainder, which you use to cover the court fees and as reimbursement for your air fair. Subsequent to the exchange I would then travel on to my ancestral home in the Old Country. In any case I will bring with me the amount of $3,000,000 to hand over to you. I know I can trust you with this responsibility. I feel it in my blood, diseased as it may be.

I await your enthusiastic response to my plan of action.

In blood brotherhood,

Barnabas

PASSCODE: "PEACE AND PROGRESS"

Dear Barnabas,
How are you today? I hope you are getting okay in your illness. I pray that the God almighty guides and protects you.

However, I am very sorry for not have written to you earlier before now, since my previous mail to you, I have been very fixed with works. I have been going from one court to the other on behalf of my clients. Please bear with me.

Furthermore, I got your mail dated 11th October 2002 in which you elaborated on where and how you want the ROBERTS"S MEMORIAL FOUNDATION to be set up. Very good notion of yours by advising that it is going to be set up in the Europe. It is very good, and inaugurating the foundation in the Europe will attract more applause and achieving its aim to the utmost level. All we have to do first now is to conclude our claiming quest from the finance company immediately.

My dear, the problem now is that I will be unable to come to ICELAND like you requested. It is not going to compromise with the service that I am currently rendering to my clients now. Also, it is going to do more harm than good to your inheritance claims from the finance company. Do you know why? It is going to take me like two (2) months or more to obtain a visa to ICELAND. Note that the finance company will suspect pranks from your side that you could not bring the simple evidences required from you in order to prove your inheritance claims.

Let us act wisely, I advise that we conclude transaction first by securing the required documents from the appropriate office and send it to the finance company (GRUBBERS LIKE YOU CALLED THEM) to prove your claim and get your cousin's (MR PITT ROBERTS) fund released to you, and before then, I must have been through with the works at my clients I have at hand. Therefore, I will be very free to travel out of my country.

Then, I would endeavour very hard to secure a visa for coming to ICELAND to meet you, knowing fully well that we have successfully achieved our claims from the finance company that has been looking for a way to confiscate this fund for their own selfish interest.

After meeting you in ICELAND, I will then proceed to any country we deem alright for the setting up of the memorial foundation in Europe to secure some necessary papers, which will give us the legal right to set this foundation in Europe. This is the best idea for us to execute this work successfully. I am like your legal attorney now, I pledge to make sure that our purported aim in this work is achieved, and also to give you good advise on it. So I advise that we execute this work as I have explained above and we will have no hindrance.

Moreso, I got the forwarded attachment, which you got from the federal high court. Like I told you, the high court is very sensitive and diplomatic in the sense that if we prolong further talk less of months, which it will take me to come to ICELAND and come back, the high court will attend to us with suspicions and arms length in this inheritance claim, which I am trying to avoid. Then if we have problem with the finance company on the cause our late submission of the required proof from you in your inheritance claim and the case is taken to the federal high court, our attitude to the court too will be used as evidence against us. So let us answer them now and conclude this transaction without problem.

I have studied the forwarded documents from the court. Below is what you will fill in the blank spaces in the affidavit paper; 1. MR Barnabas ROBERTS, USA 2. MR PITT ROBERTS Of SHELL PETROLEUM CORPORATION a citizen of USA 3. MR PITT ROBERTS on 21ST APRIL 2000 4. MR PITT ROBERTS had a total sum of US$13MILLION, with one of the finance companies in Nigeria, CITY TRUST FINANCE COMPANY with account no: 0143355018 5. COUSIN

After filling them with your writing, rescan it and send it back to the court like they said/demanded in the documents. Or if you cannot do it because of your health, I advise you to send only the required payment to them with the information they gave to you immediately and tell them through email that your lawyer will forward the filled document to them. Then I will fill it on your behalf and take it to them. With this way, that one will be solved and the AFFIDAVIT OF CLAIMS will be issued to you.

On the other hand, I urge you to send US$13,000 for Probate Tax on Monday being 14th October 2002 through Western Union money transfer with the name of my Chamber's Secretary, MR IBE GODWIN LAGOS - NIGERIA TEXT QUESTION: HOW ARE YOU? ANSWER: FINE

I have made enquiry and notice that you cannot send the US$13,000 at the same time, so I advise to send it twice by dividing the money into two. First, send US$6,500 with the information above. Then, send the remaining US$6,500 with the below information.

MR IBE GODWIN LAGOS - NIGERIA TEXT QUESTION: WHAT IS MY COLOUR? ANSWER: WHITE

With this, I will conclude this claim with the finance company by forwarding their required documents of proof to them and get this fund released from them. Then, I will be relieved with work and plan to come to meet you in ICELAND. Is this not a good idea and perfect work done?(OR THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT I CAN PROCEED TO MEET YOU AND COME BACK WITHIN ONE WEEK IS SPAIN BECAUSE I HAVE ALREADY IN MY INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT A MULTIPLE ENTRANCE OF ONE YEAR VISA TO SPAIN. SO IF YOU REALLY WANT US TO MEET IN PERSON BEFORE CONCLUDING THIS TRANSACTION WITH THE FINANCE COMPANY, I SUGGEST THAT WE MEET IN SPAIN. THIS IS THE BEST WAY FOR US TO MEET WITHOUT WASTING TIME. ALSO, I DEEM IT VERY ALRIGHT THAT WE SET UP THE "MEMORIAL FOUNDATION" IN SPAIN. WHAT DO YOU THINK? MORESO, COMING TO SPAIN WILL BE VERY EASY TO YOU AND GOOD TO THE WORK WE HAVE AT HAND THAN MYSELF SPENDING TWO (2) MONTHS TO SECURE A VISA TO ICELAND. LET US BE WISE MY DEAR. I AM WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU SO THAT I CAN START COMING TO SPAIN ON WEDNESDAY BEING 16TH OCTOBER 2002).

Please reply this mail very urgently because time is of great essence to us now.

REGARDS BARR. DANIEL.

NOTE: FOR THE SECURITY OF THIS BUSINESS OF OURS, ANY OF THE MAILS THAT COMES TO YOU WITHOUT THIS SECURITY WORD ABOVE "PEACE AND PROGRESS", DO NOT ANSWER OR REPLY IT. DELET OR TRASH IT IMMEDIATELY. I AM SUSPECTING SOME FOWL PLAY IN MY MAIL BOX.

Dear Daniel?

I have received two e-mails from you neglecting to use the agreed upon code word. I find this most suspicious. Can you prove your identity. What is the code word?

Now some non-classified information: on the urgent advice of my physician and for my health I have already begun the ocean voyage to Iceland. You understand this was for my health, otherwise I may not have been in a position to complete our transaction. He recommends a short period of convalescence in a darker climate, such as Iceland offers. This is the reason I could not respond immediately to your e-mails. Now I am corresponding via ship's internet link. I think over satellite or radio.

I had anticipated your unconditional agreement to meet me in Reykjavik and frankly I am somewhat dismayed at what to do now. Perhaps after a period of recovery in the Icelandic hemisphere I can make a detour and travel to Spain to meet you. But Belgium or the Netherlands would be more convenient for me, perhaps even the United Kingdom or Ireland. My ultimate destination is the train to Rumania, the home of my ancestors. If it is easier for you we could meet in Bucharest. Please advise.

I am very sorry for not writing to you earlier before this time, I was trying to put averything in order.

I proceeded in securing a visa fron the CANADIAN EMBASSY today which I am very optimistic that they will give it to me in 4days or a week to come. Why I am doing this, is to make everything and your trip very easy because of your present condition of health. I know it will be very easy for you to meet me in CANADA than EUROPE.

My dear, you know time is of great essence to us in this transaction, that is why I am making everything possible to achieve our aim/motive of this transaction. So I advise you to prepare coming to CANADA in no distant time. As soon as I obtain my visa to CANADA I will inform you immediately for you to come and meet me there. When I get to CANADA, I will be in a hotel, therefore do not waste time coming to meet me because of the hotel bills.

Furthermore, it is from there that I will proceed to Europe immediately for the necessary arrangements and securing of documents for the setting up of the "memorial foundation". So because of this, I advise you to come to CANADA with between US$500,000 to US$1,000,000 for the primary thing to be done.

Mr Barnabas, I had wanted to advise on something, I am advising you not to come with all the whole money in cash because it is very risky. You are my partner and I would not want anything to happen to you. After meeting you by next week, I will send to you through email the BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION, which you will use to transfer the balance for the setting of the memorial foundation.

I hope and believe you will bye this good idea from me as your attorney and partner. Also, I know that we meeting in CANADA is a good one.

I am looking for to meeting you.

So I am writing to get advise from you immediately on the country which you would want me to proceed on getting their visa in order to meet you.

Dear Daniel,

Sorry for the delay. There was some confusion on board the ship as one of the passengers was discovered to have bled to death in his room. Quite mysterious, but I speculate he was a hemophiliac. Anyhow, Internet access was restricted for a time so I could not receive your mail nor contact you.

But now I am in Iceland and able to contact you. The climate has already given me added vitality and I feel as if I am a new person. I suggest we shall meet in the Netherlands. In my many studies I have acquired the Dutch language, and I think we shall find that country more liberal in regards to dealing with vast sums of money. Also this is a perfect place to rendezvous while I am en route to Rumania.

I prefer to wait here in Iceland, savoring the beautiful dark climate until such a time as I can proceed to meet you in the Netherlands. What do you say to Amsterdam? Tell me your planned arrival time and I will make my plans to meet you at the airport. As mentioned earlier, I have $3 million USD with me. But do not worry. If anyone attempts to steal this money they will be bitten most severely by me.

Thanks for your mail. I am very happy with condition of your health in ICELAND as you explained. I pray that you will keep being okay forever.

In view of your choice of meeting me in AMSTERDAM, fine. I think that I will not continue bordering my humble self endeavouring to secure visa again. I will proceed to SPAIN and enroute to AMSTERDAM.

Now, how long will you be in ICELAND, so that I will know when to start coming. As soon as I get to AMSTERDAM, I will check in a hotel and email you the hotel I will be for you to come and meet me there or you will give me your flight schedule for to come and meet you in the airport. IS IT OKAY BY YOU?. Note that we are running short of time, this is to avoid much suspects from the finance company after a long time to get all the necessary documents they require from you.

On the other hand, I think setting up the "ROBERTS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION" in HOLLAND or LONDON will be a good idea. Anyway till we meet in AMSTERDAM. On my mind, I would have loved it if we could do this by next week, that is we meeting in AMSTERDAM next week. you there is no time. Please let us proceed by next week. What do you think.

Subject: Travel plans urgent!
Date: October 19, 2002

Dear Daniel,

Our plans are moving forward! My blood is surging!

I have booked a flight and will arrive in Amsterdam Airport (Schijpol) on SAS/Icelandair Flight 1549 at 4:25 PM Wednesday, October the 23rd Terminal 3. I trust you will have applied your numerous connections as a barrister to obtain the necessary travel documents and will be able to meet me. Please be punctual as I do not wish to spend too much time in the Netherlands. I am moving on via rail to Rumania. My travel itinerary:

SAS/Icelandair Flight 6415 Leave Reykjavik 7:55 AM, arrive Copenhagen 12:55 PM Oct. 23, 2002 SAS/Icelandair Flight 1549 Leave Copenhagen 3:05 PM, arrive Terminal 3 Amsterdam 4:25 PM Oct. 23, 2002

Now to the problem of a foolproof way to identify ourselves as we have not yet met personally: I have the copy of your identification card and will only hand over the money to you. You have my picture and to further facilitate positive identification I will wear a t-shirt printed with our secret passcode known only by us. I had the t-shirt made during the sea journey to Iceland, taking advantage of the banal amusement possibilities kept in store for the ship's passengers. Please try to arrange a similar t-shirt so I may easily establish positive identity. In addition I will come out of the plane waving wads of money so you should have no trouble recognizing me immediately. If however you fail to spot me amongst the passengers please call out our passcode audibly so that I may orient myself towards the sound. If you like, hold up a cardboard sign with the passcode, as well.

We must plan cleverly and with all our faculties. Here I will trust your great abilities as attorney and barrister. Please bring with you any and all papers requiring my signature. I believe there are still documents from the court to deal with. Also, perhaps we should arrange a power of attorney agreement so that you will be authorized to sign my name in any further matters which arise. What do you think of this?

Below are some phrases to assist you in Amsterdam. I pen them in the classic form of the Dutch language as used by Jacob Cats, the famous barrister and diplomat of the Netherlands. During my vast and comprehensive education I have learned his works by heart, in the original vernacular:

At the restaurant: Mijnherr, ik wens pannekoeken te eten.
At the hotel: Ik will in de kamer geslaapen hebben, waar de koningin altijd bezoekt.
At the bank: Waar kan ik drie million dollar wisselen?
When leaving through customs: Ik heb niets om te openbaren.

Shall I pick up a carton of cigarettes for you at the in-transit duty free shopping?

With glorious anticipation,

Barnabas

P.S. The finance company wrote a short e-mail trying to press matters. I think I was able to head them off but it would probably be best if you returned as swiftly as possible following our meeting, and took care of formalities to their satisfaction.

PASSCODE: "PEACE AND PROGRESS"

DEAR Barnabas

THIS IS TO INFORM YOU THAT I AM LEAVING NIGERIA TODAY FOR ARMSTERDAM, NITHERLANDS. BY TOMORROW BEING TUESDAY 22ND OCTOBER 2002, I WILL START MY INQUIRIES ON HOW TO START SECURING THE NECESSARY LEGAL DOCUMENTS FOR THE SETTING UP OF THE "ROBERTS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION" IN ARMSTERDAM.

MORESO, MY DEAR, I AM STILL ADVISING YOU NOT TO COME WITH THE SAID US$3MILLION. ALL YOU COULD DO, IS TO COME WITH AT LEAST US$40,000 FOR THE SECURING OF THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS AND OPENING OF BANK ACCOUNT IN ARMSTERDAM, WHERE YOU COULD TRANSFER THE REMAINING BALANCE OF THE MONEY WHEN YOU GET BACK OR YOU COULD GIVE ORDER TO SOMEONE IN USA AFTER OPENING THE ACCOUNT IN ARMSTERDAM TO REMIT THE BALANCE OF THE MONEY TO YOU WITH THE ACCOUNT NUMBER WE WOULD OPEN WHILE WE ARE IN ARMSTERDAM. SO THAT WE COULD DO OTHER THINGS AT THE SAME TIME.

THIS IS A WISE/LEGAL ADVISE THAT I AM GIVING TO YOU. I DO NOT WANT YOU TO BE TERRORISED BY SOME INDIVIDUALS ON THE WAY BECAUSE OF IT. A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR A WISE.

TAKE CARE, TILL WE MEET IN ARMSTERDAM ON WEDNESDAY. FINE TRIP.

REGARDS

Dear Daniel,

Glad to hear things are moving as planned. I look forward to seeing you in less than 48 hours now! First thing we must do is consummate the ritual of blood brotherhood, an eternal bond stronger than money. At the moment I am enjoying the dark climate of Iceland and feel especially vigorous and energetic.

Do not worry about the money. It is safe. And I am quite sure that no one could succeed in terrorizing me. I can be quite terrifying myself, if need be. Anyhow, I have the money with me, and there's nothing to do about it. I will have to bring it to you. To be honest, I want to leave the entire matter of money and fees in your capable hands so that I can concentrate on my journey to the ancient country of Rumania, comfortable in the knowledge that the Sagbama Express Road has been made safe by Halloween 2002.

Groetjes (As the Dutch would say)

Date: October 23, 2002

Friend Daniel,

Hope you had a pleasant flight to Amsterdam and that the language in Holland isn't confusing you too much. When I arrive I will tell you what people are saying when they gesticulate and point. Until then just smile, nod and say "Alles kits." I trust you have already taken care of necessary details concerning our banking arrangements. As you know, I will not trust any bank with a transfer of money, therefore I prefer to hand deliver all currency values personally. Considering that I have outlived most banks I've dealt with, this is an extremely prudent policy.

Today the blood flowing through my veins is especially energetic. The long, sunless nights of Iceland have increased my life aura hundredfold. No force on Earth can stop me now. My flight stands just before me and indeed I am very much looking forward to seeing you, the great Barrister Daniel Ejor & Ejor Esquire in person. This will be an especially proud moment for me, and I suspect you will not forget it for a long while either. Now I prepare myself for my flight. As you will recall:

SAS/Icelandair Flight 6415 Reykjavik (7:55AM) to Copenhagen (12:55PM)
SAS/Icelandair Flight 1549 Copenhagen (3:05PM) to Amsterdam (4:25PM), Terminal 3

Gentlemen (if such may be the case):

Be informed that my attorney (Daniel Ejor and Ejor Esquire) and I had planned to meet yesterday to arrange the further documents you requested. Unfortunately this meeting did not take place as I took ill rather suddenly. I will reestablish contact with Mr. Ejor and estimate that you will have all the documents you require from us by the end of next week.

A final word of caution: If any of the board of directors should vote to seize the money belonging to the late Pitt Roberts, and which by right of blood, shall shortly pass to me, a curse most terrible will fall upon his head. Within three weeks he shall meet with his death by severe accident on the Sagbama Express Road. His soul will furthermore be doomed to roam the Sagbama Road for all eternity in the most horrible state of torment, with no hope of heavenly mercy or absolution.

Have a nice day,

Barnabas Roberts

Subject: Terribly sorry for the inconvenience
Date: October 24, 2002

Daniel,

I am completely crestfallen by the terrible mishap that has occurred. The worst of it being your fruitless wait for me at the airport, thinking God knows what when I did not show up. The truth is I overestimated my ability to withstand the rigors of a bright, sunlit sky. The illness which renders me ultrasensitive to daylight has struck me again. It was still dark as the plane left Iceland, but suddenly, as we flew east, the fading dawn was overwhelmed by a brightly lit day, and the plane seemed to nearly touch the sun. I collapsed during the flight and am now lying in a private clinic in Copenhagen. My personal physician has also flown in from Maine to be by my side. Anyhow, I must say the clinic here is most progressive. They even have internet for the patients, so I am able to surf and contact you with the hope that you also receive my message.

Don't worry about the $3 million USD. Nothing happened to it. The small fortune is hidden under my bed in a metal strongbox. So as not to arouse suspicion I have declared the contents to be a consignment of pornographic magazines bound for the Dutch market.

Beautiful nurses are supplying me hourly with fresh blood so I feel I will be on my feet soon. My physician reports I should be able to make the journey from Denmark to Amsterdam in a few days, via night train. I suggest you wait this time in Amsterdam and arrange whatever formalities remain to be taken care of. If you have extra time feel free to amuse yourself in the coffee shops and bordellos. I will not think less of you than I already do. Upon our meeting, soon to take place, I will reimburse you for any additional expenses you incurred. Please do not be upset by this sudden turn of events. Everything good is worth waiting for.

See you soon, God willing,

Barnabas.

P.S. The finance agency wrote again threatening to confiscate the money. I informed them of the consequences should they attempt this. But we must move fast so that you can be back in Nigeria next week.

I am really getting exhausted with the money I have at hand.

Well Holland is a fine country, I have to let you this.

I am waiting to hear from you very urgently in this regards because I do not have much to here again.

I am writing to inform you that I was the one that sent the initial mail to you that did not come with our passcode. I was in a hast to send the mail to you in order to beat time. This is because internet services here in Armsterdam is expensive.

Waiting to hear from you very urgently.

Dear Mr. Ejor, Esq.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Harry Shipman, M.D. , the personal physician of Barnabas Roberts. Regrettably I must inform you that Mr. Roberts passed away suddenly late yesterday afternoon, just before sunset. My patient was a very sick man and we can all be relieved that his suffering has finally ceased. As you may know, a rare blood disease rendered Mr. Roberts highly susceptible to bright light, a condition which proved to be his downfall. Apparently an unthinking visitor opened the curtains in his room yesterday afternoon. The prolonged exposure to the sun's setting rays proved fatal. :-(

I spent the better part of this day taking care of bureaucratic formalities and just finished arrangements to have his belongings shipped back to his estate. I discovered in his appointment calendar his notice to meet with you in Amsterdam. Having noted the e-mail address I felt it best to inform you of the situation so you will not wait in vain. I do not know what business he had with you, or perhaps you are a friend or former business associate he wished to greet. Before taking ill Mr. Roberts was quite involved in his family's shipbuilding business, through which he has made many contacts all over the world.

I might add a few words in closing. Although Barnabas Roberts was struggling with a terrible illness, it seemed to me in the last weeks that he had found a new lease on life, a sudden burst of energy, as if some positive project had given him hope. Perhaps in some way you had a role in this. If that is the case, all of us who knew Barnabas owe you a debt of gratitude.

If I may be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me. But for now I am exhausted and must get some sleep, will fly back to Maine tomorrow.

In sad memory,
Harry Shipman, M.D.

Subject: A matter of utmost urgency

Dear Mr. Ejor,

My name is Waldorf T. Flywheel of Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel, attorneys at law. I am the family attorney to the late Mr. Barnabas Roberts, former shipbuilding magnate, hereafter referred to as my client. My client passed away recently during travels in Europe and it has now fallen under my obligation, serving as executor to the estate, to locate all the beneficiaries to my client's vast holdings.

Well, it has been a frustrating task. My late client's entire fortune: his vault of over $666,000,000 US Dollars in cash guarded by live wolves, a lovely old mansion near Collinsport, Maine, and a metal strong box containing erotic Dutch language publications, has been bequeathed to the "Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund". This is all well and good, but I have had no success in locating such an entity. We have searched all official records, Roberts family archives, and google, but to no avail.

In desperation we attempted a search of known relatives: there was a cousin named Pitt Roberts who dropped out of sight several decades ago. This, however, turned out to be a cold lead. My office performed a comprehensive study of all obituaries in every major newspaper of the world since 1970 and discovered that Pitt Roberts and all of his family passed away in a car accident several years ago. We suspect that the so-called memorial fund may have something to do with Pitt Roberts.

Having failed to locate either the "Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund" or a next-of-kin I fear the entire assets will revert to the state government of Maine, which intends to waste it by tearing down all public buildings and putting up exact duplicates in their place. An upcoming appointment in probate court will decide this. Time is therefore running out.

I am contacting you because my client apparently intended to meet with you in Amsterdam at the time of his death. Maybe you are a relative we do not know about. Possibly you are able to shed some light on this mystery and assist me in paying out this fortune to the "Pitt Roberts Memorial Fund"or a representative thereof, though I myself am skeptical that such a fund even exists. If it does, my client succeeded in keeping it an absolute secret.

Please respond quickly as the matter is highly urgent.

Best wishes,

Waldorf T. Flywheel
