Christian (or is his name Martin) threatens our Kindly Contributor
with violence, disease, various vengeful gods (with a small g) and then
tries to convert our K.C. to Christianity. The threats are very poetic
all round. First known use of dread as a verb.

Dear Christian, Sorry that I haven't replied before now but I have been rather busy passing your e-mail and it's sorry story onto some friends of mine and awaiting their reply. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for this delightful money making scam, my friends and I found it very entertaining and your pathetic attempt to get me to give you my bank details (by the way I think you need to enrol in a course of basic grammar, but then again English probably isn't your first language) made us laugh at your stupidity. As I said in my opening paragraph, I hope you do not mind, but I have taken the liberty of forwarding this e-mail to Brigadier Archibald Smythe a friend of mine at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police force. He has informed me that he has forwarded the e-mail to Interpol and that the RCMP and Interpol are interested in scams like this, and the people who run them. Apparently it is fairly easy for them to find people like you through the wonders of internet tracking devices. He has assured me that you will be caught. And severely punished. I have also taken the liberty (if, for some reason you manage to evade Canadian and international justice) of sending your e-mail to another friend of mine in South Africa, His name is Able Macatini, a very powerful Sangoma. He has told me that he will be able to put a curse on you and your real family (not the made up parents that you say have both died). He mentioned that your intestines would start to bleed, your anus would break out in boils, and that your penis would shrivel up and turn to dust. Hope you are well and strong because you'll start to get very ill, very soon. Sorry, but I think you asked for it. Best regards. Me
HEY MENS, YOU MUST BE CRAZY BY MAKING SUCH LANGUAGE TO ME.

SHOW MY MESSAGE TO YOU FRIEND IN SOUTH AFRICA AND GIVE HIM MY MESSAGE.YOU PEOPLE HAVE OFFEND MY GODS. C.BAMBA.
Hi Christian, so nice to hear from you, as you see 24 hours has past and I am still here. So much for your threats and gods and your Amorch society? And I thought you were a little 26 year old Christian orphan boy, now now Christian are you lying to me now or in your first letter? Do you want to change your story about being an orphan, or do you want me to get the spirits of your ancestors to turn against you. You will have no rest in the after life. By the way I will pass this letter on to my Sangoma friend, I'm sure he will be duly impressed with the strength of your medicine. Actual I think he will laugh mightily at your stupid little gods. He also mentioned that the magic of someone who follows lies and deception are weaker than the magic of the followers of truth and righteousness. I will now ask him to curse you with suppurating boils under your eyelids then make your bowels turn to blood and then just when you think nothing can get worse I'll just get him to make all your stolen money vanish? I'm sure making your money vanish will hurt you more than any physical punishments I can think of. But I'd like you to suffer a little first. What I am trying to get through to you is that I am the devil on earth and your puny little threats are as water running off the back of a duck. I laugh at you and your false truths.
Greetings Christian, Oh yes, I have also sent this letter to my friend Brigadier Archibald from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police force. He is most interested in your actions, especially this bit - I FEAR NO ONE BECAUSE I HAVE KILLED HUMANS, EAT THEIR BODIES AND THEIR BONES AND SWALLOW THEM. - You talk about killing people and eating them, he has assured me that he and his colleagues at Interpol will do all that they can to track down a murderer, as you claim to be in your own words. Now what do the courts do in your country do to self confessed murderers? I suggest you pack all your belongings away and flee and hide in the jackals den where you were spawned. Have a nice life you carrion eater in human disguise. And don't forget to always be careful, because not only is the magic of my Sangoma working against you but so is the police force of the world. I have also instructed my friend Able Macatini to curse you so the afflictions happen when you are not expecting them, none of this within seconds or 24 hours that you promised me. I believe in surprise and not deadlines, it's much more fun for me that way. You might think you are safe, but when you feel safe the first curse will strike, then the next and the next till you will beg me to end your misery. You also contacted me first begging for help, which makes you weak. And me strong. I laugh at you you pathetic, diseased, rabbid cur.

Dear Christian, I am very confused I thought you were a poor Christian orphan boy of 26, or a leader of the Amorch society, now I hear you are a millionaire. I think you are a bad and evil person and deserve all that my friends can deliver unto you. I will tell them to carry on and punish you because it was you who invaded my life and harmony with your lies, deception and threats, I have no fear of your threats. But you fear mine. I am doing this because you have to be stopped, you are an evil parasite against humanity. And I believe you now know that. You also now know that you can't hurt me but you know the damage I can do to you on this earth and in the afterlife. And even as you read this letter, know this, your ancestors are already turning their backs on you. They came to me and let it be known that you have dishonoured them with your false words. You are trying to make people believe that your offer is true but what you are doing is stealing their lives. So I and my friends have decided to steal your life. You do not believe in a Christian God, you believe in money. Where you are going, you will give thanks to be able to eat the dung of Satan and his imps. There is one way you can be forgiven for your threats. Send a bank Guaranteed cheque made out to me for the sum of $6 000 000 in United States dollars. Once I have it I will put $4 000 000 aside to set up a charitable fund to be called the Christian Bamba Fund for orphans. The remaining $2 000 000 will have to be given to my good friends Brigadier Archibald Smythe at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police force and the Sangoma Able Macatini to help them forget of your existance and stop the proceedings they have started. If this is agreeable to you I will send the details where you can post the cheque. If this is not agreeable I will curse you, and tell you this, if you believe in heaven, you will never enter through it's gates, hellfire and damnation will be your reward for the evils that you perpetrate through your lies and greed.
DEAR TIMM COLIN, AS FOR ME I DONT FEAR ANYBODY BECAUSE I AM A ROCK OF GOD ALMIGHTY.WHOEVER TRIES ME WILL ANNOYED GOD ALMIGHTY AND THE ANGER OF GOD ALMIGHTY WILL BE ONTO HIM.SO THEREFORE STAY AWAY FROM YOUR THREATS AND BAD WORKS BECAUSE THERE IS NO BENEFITS FOR YOU,RATHER THAN TO REGRET YOURLIFE OK.I TRULY WANT YOUR FRIENDSHIP AND I WANT TO WORK WITH YOU.LET ME TELL YOU THE TRUTH NOW,MY BUSINESS TO YOU IS GENIUE,REAL AND 100% RISK FREE HONESTLY SPEAKING.I AM NOT WHATEVER NAMES YOU CALLED ME.I AM A REAL BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND GOD WILL BEARS ME WITNESS BEFORE HEAVEN AND EARTH.I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE WORLD,BUT ONLY HIM WHO CREATED ME ON THIS WORLD.SO KEEP OFF YOUR THREATS.NO BENEFITS AND NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO ME OK.AS FOR THE US$6 MILLION DOLLARS YOU THREATED ME TO GIVE YOU,IT IS IMPOSSIBLE AND THIS IS BAD CHARACTER AND BAD DOINGS.SO YOU WANT TO THREAT ME AND FORCE ME TO GIVE YOU MONEY BY ALL MEAN.HONESTLY SPEAKING THIS IS STOLEN BY FORCE MANNERS.

Christian Bamba SUFFER MY WRATH. You Ignored my generous offer to save your miserable life, and now all the gods of Africa and your ancestors will descend upon you, I unleash all the curses of hell upon you. You choose not to accept my forgiveness and the result will be on your head. Think of this every time you feel pain it is because of me, every time you have a bad dream it is because of me, every time you have an accident it is because of me. Every time a person you think as a friend turns away from you it is because of me. I will make your piss burn, make your bowels turn to water, make your very blood fight its host and make sure you never take pleasure of a woman lest they curse you with all the diseases under the heavens. You will not feel sick today but over the passing of time you will, you will suffer all the pain and suffering that you were willing to cause to others. And your agonies will grow more dreadful as your body fails. I will rain damnation on your bones and scatter them to the corners of Africa, your soul will feel no peace because you know at heart you are a false Christian. A Christian would never do what you plan to do to others, may Satan visit you and churn your guts with his pitchfork of agony and corruption. Your body in time will reject you, your very hands will fail you and you will die alone and diseased for all to pity and say that is a man who tried to take away from others. You will beg for death and the release of the fires of hell. However it is not too late, I can still turn away the evils that are waiting to make your existence miserable. All it will take is the $6 000 000 US, and in your name I will create a shelter for orphans, to set right all the bad you have done to others through your scheme to empty their life savings. You know you are wrong, your Christian god knows you are wrong and he is already turning his back on you, that is why he led you to me. The gods of Africa know you are wrong and they are waiting to unleash their anger on you. The crying spirits of your ancestors know you are wrong and are shamed by you and are already distancing themselves from you. Satan knows you are wrong and he is laughing and preparing a place for you where you will suffer everlasting torment. And I know you are wrong because you would have taken my money and laughed. Now I am laughing because I know your suffering will soon begin.
HELLO MR TIMM COLIN, OK FORGET ABOUT ME NOW BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A GOOD MAN.I CAN SEE IT NOW.YOU JUST WANT TO HAVE MY MONEY, BUT YOU DONT WANT TO HELP ME OUT.THANK GOD ALMIGHTY MY FUND IS NOW SAFE ALWAYS.I WILL CLAIM IT ANY TIME I GET HONEST PERSON TO HELP ME OUT FROM THERE OK. GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR BAD MIND.PLEASE DONT WRITE ME AGAIN IN YOUR LIFE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A GOOD MAN AT ALL.DO WHATEVER YOU WISH TO DO NOW OK.I AM NEVER FRAID OF IT. I WILL CONTACT YOU WHEN I MAKE IT WITH ANOTHER HONEST PERSON OK.GOODBYE FOREVER AND GOODLUCK FOR YOUR BAD MIND.I DONT NEED YOUR MONEY.I ALREADY HAVE MINE OK. MARTIN.
So your name is Martin, were you telling untruths all along? You are not an orphan, you are a thief who preys on the innocent and gullible. From this day forward you are no longer a man. You are the worst kind of thing. When you tried to cheat me I saw into your lies and deceptions, what I do to you, remember this, you brought upon yourself. You lied all along about who you are. You hide behind a web of lies and untruths. I will now contact My Sangoma friend to cast all the curses that he can muster, he now also knows you are a sneaking thief who doesn't have the courage to use his real name. So who is the bad man now? I am, and have always been honest about who I am and the powers that I command. God sent me as an instrument to stop you and your vileness. You will see the powers I have over you. I am not the evil one, you are, I told you I would use your stolen money to benefit the orphans, this does not seem like a bad thing to me, I only curse you because you are a very bad and evil person. And you will feel my curses all the time from now on, if your hand slips when you are peeling fruit and you cut yourself it will be because of my curse. If you get a cold it will be because of my curse. If your teeth rot in your head it will be because of my curse. Anything that happens to you from now on will be because of my curse. What is your miserable lying life worth to you, to me it is worth the life of a dung beetle that I squash under my foot. Martin quake in fear. Know that everything bad that happens to you from now is because of me. The time for talking is over now the time for action and suffering starts. My strength increases by the day and you will get weaker, and as you feel the weakness you will contact me again. Hell has a special place for you because, god and the devil agree that you are an evil man, and you have united them in their quest to rid the earth of your vileness. If you need me to remove the curse, you know how it can be done. I pity you and your life. I am having a great deal of fun, how about you.
(After each letter I sent back, Christianer... Martinreplied within hours. He just had to reply and justify himself to me, he was just too thick to quit, or was he just too scared?I betI hear from him tomorrowmorning, I'll let you know.)
I did a Google search based on Bamba's phone number and found several related sites, I downloaded the e-mails from the Bambas on those sites and with a few more threats added for good measur sent them on to Christian/William/Tony.
Then I had a brainwave, I started passing out his e-mail number and phone number to other spam/scam artists (I told them I couldn't help, but my good friend Christian Bamba could), and sure enough when I got to work the next morning I got several replies, both from the scammers thanking me for giving them Christian's number, and from Christian begging me to stop. It seems Master Bamba is a real orphan and was doing the scam to survive, as Judge Judy is prone to say once you lie to me I no longer believe you.
Do you recognize this Christian? or William? or is it Tony? My eyes are everywhere, and you will suffer in hell you jackal. In fact I can feel you suffering now.

CHRISTIAN BAMBA. i let Mr Bamba simmer for a few days and then sent him this e-m and added a few more friends of friends, you might recognise them. Subject: Re: PLEASE FORGIVE ME BROTHER Date: Fri, 22 Nov 2002 10:18:40 -0500 To: Christian Bamba [firstname.lastname@example.org] Christian, what am I going to have to do to you? You have seen the power that I have at my fingertips. And the strength of my curse will eventually lay you low. I think you are telling me more lies. First you were an orphan, then a leader of the Amroch society, then a millionaire, then a Christian, and now you are an orphan again but poor this time. I do not believe you. Your tongue tells lies as easily as a humming bird sips nectar from a flower. I had a dream last night about the Angel Gabriel, in it he told me God is on my side, he told me that you had for the first time caused a common bond between himself and the fallen angel Beelzebub and that it was their wish that Christian Bamba and the people working with him will suffer an eternity in the fires of hell for saying he is a Christian. The Angel also told me that you and your co-workers must repay the others for the suffering you caused them. That is the only way you can win favour in his heart. It's taken a while to get back to you because I sent this last sorry tale of yours to my good friend Brigadier Archibald Smythe, and he told me he wanted to speak to his good friends the worlds most powerful judge, Judge Judy Scheinlin and President of the United States George Bush, and see what they thought about you. Judge Judy told him you are an amoral person who cares not for the suffering of others, your own greed and corruption will carry on till the curses take effect and your eyeballs dry up and turn to dust in their sockets, your lungs fill up with blood, your manhood turns to puss. President George Bush told the Brigadier that he is going to send his United States Air Force to bomb you and the people you work with when he has finished with Saddam Hussein. I have also spoken to Abel Macatini, my Sangoma friend and he is not happy with you or your business friends, it seems his sisters sister who is living in the United States lost all her money to someone in your business and he is now going to curse you all. He also told me that you should be going to be getting sick soon, if you aren't already he said he will lift the curse if you pay him $1 000 000 US, Brigadier Archibald also said he would stop his investigations for $1 000 000 US. As for me I want nothing, As I said before The $4 000 000 US was to set up an orphanage in your name to look after orphans, a lot of people who were cheated out of their savings committed suicide and left their children to suffer parentless, and I thought you might feel guilty about their deaths and would be willing to help them, but I see you have no remorse. If you want to make up for all your misdeeds you should set up an orphanage here in America. But Judge Judy said you had no remorse. Again as I told you in my other letters, I want none of your dirty money but my friends do, as you can see they are powerful men and are willing to bring misery and the curses of Heaven and Hell on yourself and now your collages if you do not settle with them. Sangoma Macatini said the AID's virus would be as nothing compared to the pain and suffering you would endure, he also said your suffering would follow you into the afterlife after what you did to his sisters sister. As far as I can see your only chance to survive the pain and suffering that Sangoma Able and Brigadier Archibald have in store for you is to pay them as soon as you can. It is still not too late to correct all your wrongs.
It looks as if Mr Bamba is ready to give up.

How many times must I tell you that I don't want your bad money, I've told you that in previous e-mails, I said $4 000 000 would be for an orphanage and the other $2 000 000 is to pay of the Brigadier Archibald and the Sangoma Macatini, as for the Federal government of the Ivory Coast go ahead and tell them, I have kept and forwarded all your e-mails to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Interpol and the FBI (when Judge Judy and President Bush got involved they came on board). I'm sure the Ivory Coast government would be also be very interested in your Scam. You can also tell The South African, Canadian, US, Australian, New Zealand and British Embasies all about my curses and threats, they will sadly have no pity or mercy on you a self confessed liar and self professed murderer. In fact I think will laugh themselves silly at your stupidity. I showed you your other e-mails, and you also said you'd killed people and eaten their flesh, Murder and Cannibalism are also against the law here and in the Ivory Coast or is the Ivory Coast Government filled with corrupt idiots like you and your business partners. You contacted me first and lied to me and tried to cheat me out of my money, you are a complete blithering idiot. So you do your worst, but mark my words, I curse you from this day on to never have rest, to die alone and in pain, may your lungs burn, may you go to prison to become the pox ridden sex slave of everyone there, I curse you with skin ulcers and boils, and rotting of the flesh, your body will become so foul that even the hyenas, rats and maggots will not be able to eat your diseased meat. Your life and lies are worth nothing to me. I am sending all these people from Togo etc. to show you that I know all about your kind and that you have been stupid for trying to con me. God came to me in a dream and told me that he renounces you and will never forgive you because you are doing bad things (as I have proved to you on more than one occasion), you are trying to cheat people out of their savings, isn't one of the commandments Thou Shall not Steal, you also told me you were a murderer, doesn't that fall under the Thou Shall not Kill commandment? You also use Gods name in vain, how can you claim to be a Christian if you break that commandment. I guess you also covet your neighbours wife. I have never met any one as pathetic and stupid as you in my entire life. May you rot on earth and in hell for your sins and stupidity.
At last the idiot seems to be cottoning on to me. I think my funand Wilbur Smith inspired curses might soon be at an end, but let's see if he replies tomy latest reply.

Subject:Re: good message for you mr coilins.bye. Date: Tue, 26 Nov 2002 09:10:47 -0500 To: Christian Bamba [firstname.lastname@example.org] Hi Christian, I see that you have learned to type at last. There is also a thing called spell check that you might think of using from time to time. Another little hint if you are writing as the so called educated son of a "A VERY RICH COCOA MERCHANT" you should get someone to do your draft letter, your grammar and spelling are abysmal. Did you finish school? Did you go to school? Actually you idiot I wasn't wasting my time, I was replying while I was working and having a lot of fun, my co-workers think you are by far the daftest, greediest little shit they have come across. By the way your entire ramblings, and my replies have been passed on to several web sites that deal with jerks like yourself. I'm sure they are causing people around the world to laugh at your pathetic excuses. So you see I was not wasting my time, I am also going to be forwarding to you all the other idiot begging scam letters that I get just to tie up your time. I don't think you will stop your scams, but you had better wise up, a lot of people are onto your kind. You are still the lowest of the low. It was a lot of fun while it lasted.
Our Kindly(?) Contributor couldn't resist another dig.

Date:Tue, 26 Nov 2002 15:14:28 -0500 To:Christian Bamba Hi Christian, PERMIT ME TO INFORM YOU ABOUT MY DESIRE TO GO INTO BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.I GOT YOUR CONTACTFROM ONE OF THE IVOIRIAN CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE IN COTE- D'IVOIRE. AND AFTER MY PRAYERS AND FASTING FOR SEVEN GOOD DAYS,INFACT I HAD THE REVELATION THAT YOU WILL SUCCESSFULLY ASSIST ME WITH HONEST AND GOOD MIND. When you sent this you were way off the mark don't you think? Your revelation's couldn't have been more wrong could they now? And as for this section from your last letter it is only the bastards that wasted their time but not the wise people.i am very wise that you mr colins.did i write you anymore?.this is to say that i am wiser than you.i dont waste my time for nothing sake ok. Tut, tut, after I tried to decypher your semi-literate ramblings all I can say is you replied to all my letters did you not? and in so doing wasted your time, so who is the wise one? certainly you don't think it is you, you daft twit. Also you might remember this bit, PLEASE STOP DISTURBING ME NOW AND GO AHEAD AND KILLS ME NOW OK.I KNOW GOD ALMIGHTY HAS FORGIVE ME BECUASE HE KNOWS VERY WELL THE SITUATION OF MY INVOLVEMENTS WITH THIS BAD HABBIT PEOPLES.GOD PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOREVER AND CLEANS ME FROM MY SIN.I WILL SIN NO MORE. you might ask God to forgive you, but if you have no wish to change your money grabbing, thieving ways you will get no forgiveness, I don't know who your priest or confessor is but he isn't doing you any good. My final curse as the good Muslim that I am is may you be stoned to death, and never be buried, and may Allah in his wisdom cover your carcass in the blood of pigs.
I haven't heard any more from Mr Bamba since I stuckthe yahoo police onto him. It's always nice to have the last word.
