Title: A STUNT TOO FAR
Scammer Name: DR. AHMED IBRAHIM

From: Klench Mychiques
To: Mr. Gbamuda

Dear Mr. Gbamuda,

It is with a heavy heart that I (try) to email you today. Unfortunately, both of my arms and right leg are in plaster (again) and I am finding extremely difficult to type. I do not know if anything is broken, but the doctors told me to wrap myself in plaster just in case. Good doctors are so hard to find.

As I informed you yesterday, I was making an attempt at the world record for jumping over shopping trolleys', but the stunt went badly wrong. Although my stunt co-ordinator set up my jump ramp perfectly, during the night some bastard moved it up against a brick wall. As I have so much faith in my stunt co-ordinator I asked no questions and performed the jump with disastrous consequences, hence my trip to Amsterdam may be delayed slightly.

Please find attached a photograph showing my failed attempt. I would not like you to think I am trying to delay you.

I will make my flight booking ASAP and then I will await the contact from your representatives.

Sincerely, and in no small pain,

Klench Mychiques.

[Nope! And it looks like Gbamuda hasn't a clue what's going in with his own crew either]

Dear mr klench,

I am in receipt of your mail.I wish to advise that each time you correspond to mr Amanda,please copy me by bcc or cc which ever one you prefer for transparency purpose,because i am still wondering what must have been delaying Mr Amanda in replying to your mail you said you sent to him.

[Come on man. You're seeing everything anyway!]

I am looking forward to to fast conclusion of this deal.

[Gee. Thanks for all the sympathy you gave me for my broken limbs!]

Yours Sincerely,
Barrister N.Gbamuda.

Dear Mrs. Williams,

Please find attached a copy of my booking receipt for my flight to Amsterdam. Also attached is a copy of my passport. The flight No. is BA0434 (British Airways) and will arrive in Amsterdam at approximately 1.30pm in the afternoon of the 15th of September. I am hoping my plaster will be removed by then.

Please ask the person who is to meet me to hold a large sign with my name at the arrivals lounge ( Klench Mychiques ) so that I am able to recognise the person I am meeting (Mr. Philips).

I would appreciate confirmation of receipt of this email.

Sincerely,

Klench Mychiques.

Dear mr klench,

I am happy to hear that at last you people have been able to communicate each other.It is also nice to hear from you that you have booked your flight for 15th and have advised Amanda accordingly.

Please always get me informed of every step as soon as you arrive for the completion. I will advise you after the completion on how the fund will be kept and managed after my meeting with Dr Ahmed. Has Amanda acknowledged your booking scheduled you sent to him?

Finally,have you people agreed on meeting and identification? [Nope]

From: Klench Mychiques
To: Mr. Gbamuda

Dear Mr. Gbamuna,

Thank you for your email.

Mr. Williams had returned my email, BUT I am still waiting for the person who is to meet me to email me. Please STRESS to Mr. Amanda Williams that until I have received identification from the person who is to meet me I will not make the flight, and I will spend the time seeking out prostitutes in London instead.

Sincere regards,

Klench Mychiques.

Dear Sir,

Every arrangement about your arrival has been taken care. The are going to hold a placard with your name on it. J.T Philips will receive you and he is going to show you a photocopy of your passport for you to be sure of the person receiving you.

There is nothing again that we can do because of Security reasons that is why we are always careful with our clients. [We'll see about that Mr. Williams]

God Bless and wishes you safe arrival to Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Best Regards,

A. Amanda

Subject: Re: YOUR PASSWORD: PEACE - MY PERSONAL PASSWORD: TIGHTLY

Dear mr klench,

Many thanks for your mail.I like to say that you are bring back issues,i told you that your passport copy has been forwarded to Mr Amanda Williams for documentation,which can as well be used for identification upon your arrival. Note that you gave me a condition of sending you a photographed picture which i did,and the reason for that was to maintain trust in what we are doing and to prove to you that i am not hidding my identity.

Moreso,because i believe you and i are one and are working with one spirit to achieve our goal. The issue of Amanda doing same as i did should not arise because they are different body only concern in making payment to us.I believe they should have their mode of operation.Your passport copy sent to them is enough for identification,except you have another motive. [Well spotted Ahmed!]

Finally,i like to suggest that you ask mr Amanda williams or colleague (J.T philips) whomsoever will be seeing upon arrival to present your passport copy which i sent to them and identity of the person before following the person.This is to be sure you are meeting with the right person.Alternatively,a code can be given to Amanda williams or his partner just like we are communicating with"tightly and peace" for easy identification to support your passport copy they are having.

Yours Sincerely,
Barrister N.Gbamuda.
PEACE.

 

 

[I get stroppy]

From: Klench Mychiques
To: Mr. Gbamuda

Dear Mr. Gbamuda,

And I told you that BEFORE I travel to Amsterdam I require proof of identity from the person I am meeting. If the person I was meeting was to be you then there would not be a problem as you have already proved yourself to me. However, I now am expected to travel hundreds of miles to meet someone I have never seen. Sir, honestly, would you do this without any proof of identification? Everyone in this deal so far has seen my identity. I have sent evidence to EVERYONE when asked. YOU are the only person whose identity I have seen.

If you do not like the way I work sir, please let me know and I will cancel my flight and close the deal. I have other business affairs I can be attending to.

Sincerely,

Klench Mychiques.

Subject: Re: YOUR PASSWORD: PEACE - MY PERSONAL PASSWORD: TIGHTLY

Dear mr klench,

Many thanks for your mail. For you to have taken my identity is enough to believe what i am telling you and to follow whonsoever i introduce to you. Well,the identity issue with mr Amanda or mr phillips [make your damn mind up how you are spelling his name] can be discussed very well with mr Amanda,so contact him and ask him how this can best be resolved.

This is not enough for for you to decide to cancel your flight or back out of helping,except you actually do not want to continue.If you insist on withdrawing,well that is your decision because i have done all you required.

Yours Sincerely,
Barrister N.Gbamuda.
PEACE.

 

 

From: Klench Mychiques
To: Mr. Gbamuda

Dear Mr. Gbmuda.

I have asked and asked and asked and asked for identification from Amanda, but I have not received it. I have so far spent £431 on airline tickets AND I am required to bring with me SEVENTEEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED EUROS, the total cost to me so far in US Dollars being TWENTY THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED AND TWELVE ($20,312).

If I am to spend $20,312 then I must INSIST that I receive identification BEFORE I board the plane on the 15th. I suggest you contact Amanda and tell him that he will be wasting Mr. Philips's time at the airport waiting for me, as I will not be arriving until I receive OFFICIAL identification.

Mr. Gbmuda, please note that all further emails will be ignored until I receive what I want. [So there!]

Sincerely,

Klench Mychiques.

Dear mr klench,

This decision is not mine.You can contact Amanda for all these arrangement.I am not a staff of Global Financial Network and as such will not dictate their working ability or modus operandi.I believe they should have their working skills.

If you decide to drop here because of identity from Holland office,well like i said before,that is your decision.I have proven myself to you as demanded. We are working as one body and co and only a paying body.I have never done a business with a bank and demand the bank to send me a picture of the director and i have never heard it before.Like i said except you have a different motive.

Contact Amanda for this request.

Dear Sir,

I am not surprise that the way you authoritave write on e-mail can jeorpadise this transaction. You wrote to us about the person meeting you to hold a large sign on your arrival, which we agreed. The name of the person to meet you, which we agreed. The next step is your withdrawal which you think you are doing for us or Gbemudia.Since i started working, i have never seen a client behaving this way.Anyway, Thank you and God Bless.

Dear Dr. Ibrahim,

I think there has been some mistake. I mailed your Amsterdam contact to tell him that I would be meeting with him at the Amstel Botel Hotel in Amsterdam (Oosterdokskade 2 Amsterdam 1011 AE). [Actually, I didn't, but what the Hell] I am here now as I write this, waiting for your contact to arrive. My room number is 117. I have told the attendant at the booking desk that I am expecting a visitor.

Your contact was told not to arrive until after 4.00pm today as I needed to sleep with a prostitute for a short while before I meet with anyone.

CC: Amanda Williams

Dear Mr. Ibrahim (and friends)

Here is what is going on:

By now you will probably have guessed that you have been fooled into believing that I was coming to meet your mugu friend in Amsterdam. I never left the country. Whilst your foolish friends were running around in Amsterdam trying to find me, I was sat in my very comfortable chair at home, drinking coffee and checking my emails!

How did you think that my name of Mr. Klench Mychiques was real?! You must do your homework before you try to steal money from people! Your introductory documents were full of spelling and grammar errors, and your communication skills are plain awful.

Ibrahim (or whatever your real name is) from your very first email I knew you are a 4-1-9 advance fraud fee scammer. There is NO $28,000,00.00, I know it, and of course YOU know it. I'm not sure if Mr. Amanda Williams knows it though. Going by the communication between you two I'd be surprised. Also, what the Hell is with a name like Mr. Amanda Williams? Don't you know that Amanda is a GIRLS name?

I know you have been using false names and details, and of course I know that you and your friends are a thieves.

All the documents and photos I sent to you were of course false. Do not worry though, your time with me has not been wasted completely. I run a web site where your pictures and all the letters will be displayed for all my readers to see, so you are going to be quite famous soon.

Of course I have saved ALL the emails and pictures you sent to me, along with ALL the email headers. Soon they will all been sent to the Nigerian Police's fraud section, and also the FBI's advance fee fraud department. Hopefully you will be hearing from them very soon.

Do not bother to reply to me with your excuses Ibrahim, I have heard them all. I KNOW you are a THIEF, and I KNOW your friends are THIEVES also. Do not try to convince me your proposition was real because it was ALL A COMPLETE LIE!

[Lets see if Ahmed's up for a bit of tuition]

I tell you what I will do. I will make a deal with you. You send me US $8,000 by wire transfer, and I will show you where all your mistakes have been made, and show you how to produce REALISTIC documents and wording. Being a businessman myself (a REAL one!) I know how such thing SHOULD look. I will also keep your activities out of the news and police files!

[$8,000 from a scammer would be a MAJOR coup. I suspect that just isn't going to happen though, and anyway, if he had sent me the cash, I'd never help the scumball out!]

I hope we meet again soon Ahmed I look forward to making a fool of you again!

Mr/Mrs/Dr/Barrister (delete as applicable) Ibrahim.

Please do not for one moment think I believe you about your knowing that I was messing with you. That is simply not true. You were completely fooled for every second, right up to my last email to you.

I am not the fool here Ibrahim (if that is your real name), YOU are the fool!

YOU are the one who sent the VERY BADLY made passport.

YOU are the one who sent me the picture of the FAT MAN on the chairs!

YOU are the one who sent me the picture of the IDIOT in the suit!

It does not matter if these pictures are not you or your real people. The fact is that I FOOLED you into going to the trouble of TAKING the pictures and wasting your time! It does not matter to me if the pictures are really you or not. YOUR TIME WAS WASTED MAKING AND SENDING THEM!

You NEVER suspected me for one second. You were fooled every step of the way.

I will leave you for now Ibrahim. I have plenty of other scammers to deal with.

Also, if you are supposed to be in a non-UK country, try not to use a UK based email address like the one you have now. This is VERY amateur. Just because you are using a tiscali.co.uk email address, do not think that you cannot be traced back to your origin because you can. It is very easy to do. This is a very basic mistake that most 419 scammers make.

DEAR BIG FRIEND,

I LIKE YOU,YOU ARE VERY BRILLIANT AND SMART.THANK YOU FOR THE LITTLE ADVISE AND MISTAKES CORRECTED.I WILL WORK ON THAT.BUT I TELL YOU THAT YOU CAN NEVER TRACE MY STATION VIA YOUR COMPUTER,WHY DID YOU NOT TRACE THAT I WAS SENDING THOSE MAILS FROM ABIDJAN.

SECONDLY,I TELL YOU THAT THESE: YOU are the one who sent the VERY BADLY made passport. FOR SURE IT WAS MADE BY A COMPUTER EXPERT. [Thanks for the compliment.... I think!]

YOU are the one who sent me the picture of the FAT MAN on the chairs! .I TELL YOU THAT NO ONE EVEN KNOWS IF
THE FAT MAN IS DEAD OR ALIVE CREATURE.
[Sorry readers, he's completely lost me here]

YOU are the one who sent me the picture of the IDIOT in the suit! SAME WAS DONE TO THIS PERSON.ACTUALY,HE MIGHT BE CALLED IDIOT BECAUSE HE IS SOMEWHERE ELSE WHILE PEOPLE ARE USING HIS IMAGE TO FRAUD.

THANK YOU,I LIKE TO BE YOUR FRIEND.WE CAN DISCUSS ON FRIENDLY BASIS.TO BE FRANK WITH YOU,I AM BASED IN ABIDJAN.AND A CITIZEN OF GHANA. IF YOU ARE TRUELY RICH,PLEASE YOU CAN HELP ME.WE ARE POOR IN OUR FAMILY.

[Bare faced cheek]

I made the passport my friend, and I can prove it. Send me a picture and I will duplicate the quality for you!

Your mistakes are not corrected because you have just repeated them in your email to me.

Ibrahim. I am sorry, but I think you are a little crazy. The picture of the fat man was sent to me by YOU. The man holding the KLENCH MYCHIQUES TIGHTLY page WAS sent by you. You may need your memory fixing! Stop lying to me Ibrahim, it will make me respect you more!

No, the IDIOT in the suit picture was sent to me by your 'Mr' Amanda Williams! Don't you don't even know what your own dumb partners are doing?!

I am happy. I know the truth. No matter what lies you give me.

Bye.

Shiver Metimbers.
