To: Mr. Ebi Garr

Dear Ebi,

My apologies for the delay, my meeting went on for much longer than I expected. Please find attached the two pages of our agreement form. Please ignore the parts which mention receipt of the photograph. You have already sent this to use so there is no need to consider this.

As you will see the first part of the form is very simple, and all that is required is your name, signature and date. Page two of the form is slightly different. All you need to do write in the large blank area what you intend to use the donation payment for. There are no rules about this, just write down basically what areas of your club, management and facilities you intend to use the donation for.

Once you have completed both forms, please send them back to us as an email attachment. Once we have received them they will be passed onto the Donation Committee and your payment will be made within 24 hours.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Kind regards,

Arthur Dent.
MD. Arse Bandit PLC.

Dear Ebi,

Many thanks for sending me the agreement forms. Please will you inform me how you require payment?

We can send you a cheque, wire transfer, western union, or if it suits you I can even send one of my representatives who is in Africa at this very moment to bring you the full amount in cash. [Let me take a wild stab in the dark; Western Union Money Transfer by any chance?]

Let me know your preferred method.

From: Arthur Dent
To: Mr. Ebi Garr

Dear Ebi,

My PA Charles Brocket returned from the Western Union office a short while ago to tell me he was unable to make the payment in full.

Apparently there is a new rule in force that prevents single payments of more that $2000 being sent to your country. The only way to make the payment would be in multiples of $2000 which will be rather time consuming.

Let me know your thoughts.

Regards,

Arthur Dent

Thanks for the mail and the informatiom you sent to me,

i'm very sorry to hear that there is a new riule in force. But i will like to know if you can send the money with the rule, i know it will take much of your time please consider my club, it will be ok by me if you send the money via that way becos it's the only way the money can be safe.

i will like to know if it's every day that you can send the $2000 to me please. please i beg of you to help my club with the way western union money transfer.

i will be waiting for your reply ASAP.

From: Arthur Dent
To: Mr. Ebi Garr

Dear Ebi,

Thank you for the details you sent, but when I contacted my bank to arrange the transfer my bank manager told me that there is no such (real) bank as the Standard Trust Bank. He told me the bank had a site at www.standardtrust.com but that this was a fake bank and the FBI are currently investigating it.

Please advise.

Dear Ebi,

It has been confirmed to me my London's Scotland Yard police headquarters that the bank IS being used for fraudulent purposes. In fact I am told that the bank is currently under investigation fro the UK police and the United States FBI.

I have been advised not to transfer any funds into that bank. I think that we have to send the money either by Western Union in multiple payments, or I can send a representative to you to pay the amount in full in cash.

Arthur Dent

From: Charles Brocket, PA
To: Mr. Ebi Garr

Dear Ebi,

Good morning sir. This is Charles Brocket again.

I am sorry but I have to give you some very terrible news. My boss Arthur Dent died some days ago as a result of an accident whilst he was out jogging. I hope you will understand that because of this horrible event I have not been able to concentrate on any other matters.

Ebi I have attached some information regarding Arthur's death which will help explain matters clearly. Please take care, some of the images below are very disturbing, but it is right that you should know the full truth of the event.

Of course I understand that Mr. Dent was sending you the donation payment last week, and of course once the funeral is over I will endeavour to make the payment to you myself.

That is all I can tell you for the moment. I am very sorry to give you such bad news. I will be in touch again very soon once Mr. Dents funeral has been finalised.

Regards,

Charles Brocket, PA.

[Lets have another go at getting a decent sized scan of the football team picture]

From: Charles Brocket, PA
To: Mr. Ebi Garr

Dear Mr. Garr,

I think there has been some confusion. I did send you an email a few days ago, but it seems that you did not receive it.

The police investigation has now been completed and I can make arrangements to send you the payment.

Unfortunately, because of the police investigation into Mr. Dent's death, his computer was removed from the office, and so I do not have access to he emails he sent to you and also the final donation photograph that you sent to him (the team photograph). Please can you forward me another copy of this photograph ASAP and once it has been received I will make arrangements to send the payment to you.

I know in a previous email that Arthur requested that although he was happy with your photograph he would have liked to have had a bigger and clearer scan of it. If it is possible that you could have the picture scanned again to be larger and clearer, that would be most appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Kinds regards,

Charles Brocket.

Please can you explain to me why your email states "From: Smith Adwale" ? I was told that Mr. Adwale was nothing to do with your club?

Also, for our records please can you scan a sample of your football clubs headed notepaper for our records. Once we have the information above I can start to process your payment.

One final question; Have you contacted the owner of the website that your information is featured on (419?) to ask him to explain to you why your data appears there? If so, what did he tell you?

Kind regards,

Charles Brocket, PA.

Thanks for mailing back it ok i know why i used the name Mr Adewale i found out that , the site 419eater .com i was likely to be know as the same person as Adewale i hope you understand .That was why i used the name and i was trying to find out if you were really not haveing a hand with the site.

Anyway i just want to let you know that i don't think i can get you the photograph i have tried my best so if you knoe you can't make the payment with all the information i have sent to you and the late Mr Dent you can forget about the payment.

I don't have much to say but you can keep your money and give it to some one you know you can play with, as the manager of my club for now i knoe i have tried to see the my club get all the facilities that was why i needed help from you but it seem that you want to play with me it's ok by me am not agree but i will like to say.Thanks for the time and all the possible mean which you wanted to help my club.

And before i forget Mr Dent and you made it up ok the 1st payment he made was i fake and i found all that when i was checking out the site.

i will like to stop here anyway by and GOD bless.

From: Charles Brocket, PA
To: Mr. Ebi Garr

Dear Mr. Garr,

I think you misunderstand me. Let me try to explain:

I do NOT require you to get a new photograph taken. I do NOT need a new photograph.

All that I am requesting is that you send me a new SCAN of the old photograph, but to try to send me a larger scan. It is very simple; all you need to do is take the photograph that you already have to a scan machine, and ask for it to be scanned again, but at a higher quality. That is all that is needed and NOTHING more.

Once that issue is finalised we can proceed immediately. If you are willing to do this then I have including some instructions below for you to give to the person who will scan the picture for you. Just take the original team photograph you sent to me to the scanner and give him the instructions below.

Regards,

Charles Brocket, PA.

[Scanning instructions attached]

 

 

10 May, 2004

Seems that Ebi has finally come to his senses and realised he was being played for a fool. He hasn't replied to me since April 26th, so I guess that's the end of it.

I know that Ebi has read these letters here of course, so if you're reading Ebi, thanks for all the laughs, it was great whilst it lasted. I hope you didn't promise the football team too much to pose like mugus

Time to move on to the next fake football team I suppose....
