Conor O'Prolite is interrupted during a much-needed vacation on Smegaroon, by a threat from a Hired Killer. These bastards write e-mails of this type.
This tale features lovely graphics by C. O'Prolite, who once again wastes a scammer's time in fine fashion.
Note: Threatening someone on Smegaroon is akin to trying to hold up a bar full of police, soldiers, secret agents or gangsters, all of whom are known to vacation on the island and none of whom need weapons to handle the occasional problem. People are there to relax and do not take kindly to interruptions by hired assassins. While there's an unwritten rule that one doesn't whack fellow tourists (or leave candy wrappers on the ground), casino bodyguards tend to look the other way if someone intent on spoiling the good mood is dealt with. [People riding ATVs on the beach get extra harsh treatment.]

Is this for real? I can't believe that any of my friends hate me, let alone enough to want me dead.
You will die soon.
Even if I pay up? I'm on holiday (as your boys will have told you). Can you wait until I get home in two weeks? I don't have that much money with me.
My boys are very angry to hear this that you have no much money like that,then how much do you have yet.
I don't take all my money and credit cards on holiday. I could manage $3000 now, and the rest when I arrive home on 1st July.
Go to Western Union and send the money today.
Receiver name ------------------OKOLO EMMANUEL
Text Question-------------How long?
We await to receive the Western Union payment informations today. Sender's name should be your name.
I'm staying on the tropical island of Smegaroon, and according to hotel reception, it has no Western Union. Hard to believe, but your boys will be able to confirm this. Is there any other way I can pay you?
Your boys blew it! They're dead as a result of resisting arrest. See the attached newspaper cutting. I actually saw it. Nobody at the hotel is talking about anything else. Very exciting.
We shall see
See what? There are so many police around, that I feel quite safe here. I wish I hadn't sent you the $3000 now.
I found a bank that could send payments by Western Union.
go and send it through Western Union.
I did, yesterday. Which I wouldn't have if I'd known your boys were going to be shot dead. I've already told you this.
The bank didn't seem to know much about Western Union. Not much call for it apparently.
I don't take a scanner on holiday of course, so I used my digital camera to photograph the receipt. See the attachment.
WHERE IS THE MTCN NUMBERS
No idea. The Bank didn't mention them, and as I've not used Western Union before, I didn't know I should have been given them.
I'll go back tomorrow morning and ask.
Sorry. Hotel reception has just told me that all the banks are closed today due to a religious holiday, St Smegar's Day (the Island's patron saint).
I'll go first thing tomorrow.
There was a bit about it in the local paper.
I've just been to the bank and after shouting at them for a while, they admitted that they hadn't done anything with my $3000. It seems that I'm the first person on the Island ever to have asked to make a Western Union payment.So they didn't know what to do. Smegaroon caters mainly to the rich and famous who wouldn't be seen dead paying anyone that way.
The bank suggested a bank transfer as they do them all the time. As do I of course. Can you let me have your bank details?
