From: Father Ted Crilley
To: Samuel Eze

Dear Samuel,

Thank you for sending me your passport image.

Samuel, you must try to see things from my point of view. First, you contact me asking for help, and you tell me that you are from the God's Love Bible Ministry. Then some days later, another person sends me an email to proclaim the same thing.

I ask proof from Mr. Otumba, and everything that he has sent to me so far seems truthful. He has sent to me a picture of his ministry, and outside it is very clear that you can see the name of the ministry on a sign. You have not been able to do the same for me. You have sent me a picture of a church, but it is not clear enough to see if there is a sign that gives the name of the church. Mr. Otumba has shown me clearly some photographs showing his church name. He has also sent his photograph.

This evening, Mr. Otumba has told me that he will prove his honesty to me by sending a $20 Dollar donation to my ministry. He tells me that when I receive it I will know he speaks the truth. I think that this offer is very convincing.

Samuel, I do want to believe you, but the committee has demanded that I have proof of who is telling me the truth, and so far I cannot be certain who is telling me the truth.

I will make some enquiries and get back to you ASAP.

Sincerely,

Father Ted Crilley.

DEAR IN THE LORD,

I RECIEVED YOUR MAIL OF YESTERDAY AND NOTED THE CONTENTS THEREIN.

ATTACHED ARE ANOTHER VIEW POINT OF OUR CHURCH.

THANKS FOR YOUR EXPLAINATORY MAIL WHICH EXPRESSED ME AS YOUR FIRST CONTACT.

TO PROOF MY FACT, I EXPLAINED TO YOU THAT OTUMBA & CO, STARTED CONTACTING YOU AFTER YOUR NAME WAS
ANNOUNCED IN OUR CHURCH AND YOUR INFORMATION WAS PUBLISHED IN OUR BULLETIN. IT WAS FROM THIS BULLETIN THAT MR OTUNBA GOT YOUR INFORMATION AND STARTED CONTACTING YOU WITH INTREST OF EXTORTING MONEY FROM THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOR THEIR SELFISH INTREST.

I HAVE WARNED YOU TO STOP FURTHER COMMUNICATION WITH OTUNBA & CO, TO AVOID BLAM AT LAST. I HAVE TENDER THIS MATTER TO THE CHURCH COMMITEE AND EVERY PERSON WERE AMAZED ON THIS URGLY SITUATON.

THE CHURCH COMMITEE HAVE MAPPED OUT MEASURES TO TACKLE THIS ISSUE IN OTHER TO FIND THE CULPRINTS OUT,NOTE THIS, IN A HOUSE OF GOD THERE MUST BE "A" JUDAS EVEN AMONG THE DISIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST.

YOU SAID THAT ALL THE THINGS OTUMBA SENT TO YOU SEEMS TO BE TRUTFUL, NOTE THAT HE HAS BEEN MONITORING THE DEVELOPMENT SO FAR AND THE COMMITEE. AS OF NOW, WE DO NOT KNOW OTUMBA IN PERSON, THEREFORE, YOU ARE WARNED TO KEEP AWAY FROM HIM AND REGARD ANY INFORMATION FROM HIM INVALID.

REFFRENCE TO YOUR MAIL, IT WAS OBSERVED THAT OTUMBA INTENDS TO SEND $ 20, TO YOU.WHAT DOES THAT MEANT FOR?, IT IS TO CONVIENCE YOU TO SEND HIM THE DONATION YOU HAVE PROPPOSED FOR THE LORD?, THE $ 20 DOLLARS CAN NOT PROOF ANY SENCERITY OR HONESTY OF OTUMBA, BECAUSE THE SAME OTUMBA HAD EARLIER REQUESTED FOR HELP FROM YOU AND NOW TURNED ARROUND TO SEND YOU $ 20 DOLLARS FOR YOUR CHURCH TO ENTICE YOU.

LET BE SENSITIVE WITH THIS MAN CALLED OTUMBA & CO.

MEANWHILE, YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PROBLEM WOULDN'T STOP YOU TO DO WHAT GOD HAS DIRECTED YOU TO DO. THE CHURCH COMMITEE HAVE AGREED TO INVITE YOU DURING OUR NEW YEAR CRUSADE COMING JANUARY 2004.
WHAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW AS A MAN OF GOD IS THAT I AM NOT AFTER MONEY, BUT I WANT TO PROVE MY WORD
AND RETAINED THE IMAGE OF THE GOD'S LOVE BIBLE MINISTRY.

MAY THE ALMIGHTY GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR COMMITEE FOR YOUR EFFORT AND YOUR UNDERSTANDING SO FAR.
NB; I WILL LIKE TO KNOW THE OUT COMES OF YOUR INQUIRES.

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU AS YOU PROMISED TO GET BACK TO ME, THAT WAS WHY I COULD NOT SEND YOU MAIL SINCE MORNING.

REGARS,

{EVANG SAMUEL EZE.}
{GOD'S LOVE BIBLE MINISTRY}

[Samuel attaches the mother of all bad photo-editing jobs. He's taken the original Vatican pic he sent to me, stretched it, and then added a home-made sign to it. Notice on the enlarged version the sign legs actually end outside of the picture!]

 

 

From: Father Ted Crilley
To: Samuel Eze

Dear Samuel,

I am disturbed by the last image that you sent to me. You showed me a picture with a sign, yet Mr. Otumba has sent me the EXACT same picture, without the sign. How can you explain this? Also, the picture you sent is the same picture you sent to me, but it has somehow been stretched. This is very suspicious.

With regard to the $20. Mr. Otumba has said that this would prove his dedication to me. I have told him that I would only accept the following:

1. That he send $20 in cash by priority mail.
2. That with the cash he sends me a HAND WRITTEN letter to state his mission to be true and faithful to me.

Mr. Otumba said yesterday that he would send this payment because when it arrives I know he is the serious one in this deal. I think that because he is going to the trouble of doing this for me that he must be more truthful.

Also, you say why is Otumba willing to send me $20 when he is asking me for money.... I can ask you why you are needing my money when your church looks so big and powerful. I have never seen a church that looks so big before.

I have contacted Mr. Otumba and told him that I would give the donation to the first of you who send me the $20 by mail. One who is very serious about this donation will make the best effort to satisfy my troubled mind.

Blessings,

Father Ted Crilley

 

 

[Samuel seems a bit biffed. He sends me the following Cap-Locked and BOLD message...]

From: samuel eze <evang_samuel_ezeprivatebox@yahoo.com>
Subject: READ CAREFULLY SO THAT YOU CAN UNDERSTAND

DEAR IN THE LORD,

I BEGAN TO SURPECT ALL THIS SITUATION. I CONTACTED YOU FOR HELP IN OUR MINISTRY, YOU DID NOT EVEN GIVE ME YOUR PRIVATE PHONE NUMBER SINCE THEN. AFTER SOME FEW DAYS YOU TOLD ME THAT SOME BODY CALLED OTUMBA CONTACTED YOU ALSO FROM THESAME OF OUR MINISTRY. I ASKED FOR OTUMBA'S PHONE NUMBER , YOU COULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT EVEN YOUR OWN.

NOW, HOW DO YOU WANT ME TO BELIEVE THIS THING IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE SAME PLAN WITH OTUMBA?.

I AM NOT READY TO SEND EVEN A CENT FOR THE SITUATION, BECAUSE MY MINISTRY IS VERY POOR, THAT WAS WHY I CONTACTED YOU FOR THE ASSISTANT.


REGARDING OUR CHURCH BUILDING, THIS CHURCH WAS BUILD BY LATE PRESIDENT SANI ABACHA DURING THE MILITARY REGIME I997/98.
HE PROMISED THAT HE WILL GIVE THIS CHURCH $ 200,000.00 DOLLARS BEFORE DEATH TOOK HIM APART.

THEREFORE, IF YOU WANT TO SEND US THE DONATION AS YOU PROMISED INITUALLY, PLEASE KINDLY DO IT AND FORGET THE ISSUE OF OTUMBA & CO.

REGARDS AND GOD BLESS YOU.

EVANG SAMUEL EZE.

 

 

From: Father Ted Crilley
To: Samuel Eze

Dear Samuel,

On the 24th of October I sent you my personal telephone number TWICE. Here it is again 044 7092 037 526 (United Kingdom).

[Actually, I didn't send him the number, but what the Hell!]

If you do not want the donation, that is fine with me. I will contact Mr. Otuumba instead. It is obvious that for some reason you do not trust me, when it seems like I am the one who is being lied to.

If your ministry is so poor, perhaps it would be a good idea not to spend money for the Internet connection?

By the way, I cannot give you Otumba's phone number because he has not yet given it to me. What he has given me is more honest answers.

Also, how dare you accuse me of being 'in the same plan' with Otumba? If you make these accusations again I will cease communications IMMEDIATELY. Remember, I am not working on my own here. I have to do what my committee members tell me to do. This is not my decision alone to make.

Please be more careful with your words in future

Good bye,

Father Ted Crilley.

DEAR FATHER IN THE LORD,

RECEIVED YOUR MAIL AND SINCERELY I AM SORRY FOR THE WORDS I USED IN MY PREVIOUS MAILS TO YOU WHICH YOU DO NOT DESERVE.

YOU KNOW QUITE WELL THAT WE ARE HUMAN AND IN SITUATION LIKE THIS ONE ATIMES GET CONFUSED.

THE FACT IS THAT I BELIEVE THAT WHATEVER GOD HAD SIGNED MUST COME TO PASS, THEREFORE NO MATTER WHAT OTUMBA & CO ARE PLANNING AGAINST OUR CHURCH MUST FAIL BECAUSE I KNOW THE GOD I AM SERVING.

I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT OTUMBA IS AFTER YOUR MONEY. THAT IS ALL. HE IS NOT AFTER THE INTEREST OF GOD'S LOVE BIBLE MINISTRY.

NOTE THAT I HAVE EARLIER TOLD YOU THAT I DO NOT KNOW WHO THIS OTUMBA IS EVEN UP TILL THIS MOMENT.

IF HE IS OUR CHURCH MEMBER, I DO NOT KNOW. ALL I KNOW IS WHOMEVER THIS OTUMBA MIGHT BE, HE HAS EVERY KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR WILLING DONATION TO THIS CHURCH.

MEANWHILE AS EARLIER INDICATED TO YOU, ALL THE REQUIREMENTS HAD BEEN FULLFILLED WHICH I HOPED ARE IN YOUR CUSTODY IN CASE OF VERIFICATION. PLEASE KINDLY SEEK THIS OTUMBA'S PHONE NUMBER. THIS WILL ASSIST AND ENHANCE IN KNOWING WHO THIS VERY MAN IS.

PLEASE AND WITH THE MERCY OF GOD ALMIGHTY, WE NEED THIS DONATION TO REHABILITATE OUR CHURCH AND HELP SOME NEEDY ONES ESPECIALLY THE PREVILAGE, ORPHANS etc. TOMORROW, WE'LL SEND TO YOU AN ACCOUNT WHERE YOU WILL SEND THE "GOD'S APPROVED WILL DONATION" TO.

TODAY, I AND MY ASSISTING PASTORS COMMENCED FASTING ON THIS URGLY DEVELOPMENT AND HOPED GOD WILL DO HIS WORK. I TRIED YOUR PHONE SENT TO ME BUT ALL EFFORTS YIELDED NO END.

ONCE MORE SORRY FOR ALL INCONVINIENCES AND MY PAST STATEMENT TO YOU.

REGARDS,

EVANG. SAMUEL EZE.

From: Father Ted Crilley
To: Samuel Eze

Dear Samuel,

Thank you for your email, and your apology is accepted.

You must try to see these things from my point of view. How am I to know who is telling me the truth. Yesterday I asked Mr. Otumba to supply me more proof in the manner of a photograph holding the bread and wine symbol. Today he sent me the photograph attached. Mr. Otumba has also told me that he has contacted you by email to explain things to you, yet he says that you have not replied to him. why is this. Perhaps if you contact him you will be able to sort this horrible situation out.

As I have explained before, I cannot do anything until my donation committee give me permission, and they are all of the opinion that this situation is very confusing. The reason I asked you to send the donation was for the ultimate proof. Only he that is honest and true would send their own money. Mr. Otumba has made some excuse for not sending the money to me, so if yours was received then this would certainly convince the donation committee that you are honest and true.

If you cannot send $20 by mail, then it may take some time for us to work to a conclusion where the donation committee will let me send this money to you.

The donation committee are extremely demanding people, and would never release the funds without maximum proof that it is going to the correct person. As you can see, the decision is not mine alone to make. There are 6 members of the donation committee. This evening they came to me to tell me that if you were able to send the $20 in cash by priority mail then they would IMMEDIATELY approve the payment to you by virtue of you being the one to first show 100% proof of your integrity. They have agreed that the payment would be made to you the very same day that your gesture of proof arrives. This is the fastest way that I can think that this situation can be resolved.

I realise that finding the $20 would be hard for you Samuel, but remember the great benefit that would come from this. It would turn $20 into $74,330.00 instantly.

Below is the latest email the Mr. Otumba has sent to me.

Blessings.

Father Ted Crilley.

Dear Samuel,

This is what the donation committee have demanded:

Send $20 in cash by priority mail then they would IMMEDIATELY approve the payment to you by virtue of you being the one to first show 100% proof of your integrity. They have agreed that the payment would be made to you the very same day that your gesture of proof arrives. This is the fastest way that I can think that this situation can be resolved.

I am sorry but my hands are tied here Samuel. Because of this Mr. Otumba the situation has been made very difficult for me and the committee will only free the cash to the person who sends the payment. Nothing you can say will convince them, they are demanding physical proof.

If you do not want to send the payment then I am afraid I can no longer help you. If you will send the payment, please let me know ASAP and I will give you the address of my ministry.

Blessings,

Father Ted Crilley.

[Surely Samuel can't pass this up?!]

[Two days after sending the above email and Samuel still hasn't replied. Time for an ultimatum...]

From: Father Ted Crilley
To: Samuel Eze

Dear Samuel,

How are you? I hope you are well.

I have been told by the Donation Committee to inform you that if you do not send your payment of $20 by the 7th of November then the donation award will be cancelled and the payment will then be forwarded to the next worthy cause. Once the award has gone through the cancellation procedure this cannot be reversed under any circumstances. I urge you to act very quickly if you still require the donation. Please remember that your $20 will be returned with the donation.

I am sorry to have to make this demand of you but the end of the churches financial year is the 13th of November and all excess church funds that have not been claimed will be forwarded to the Inland Revenue so as to avoid UK tax charges.

If you are not prepared to send this payment, please let me know urgently so that I can close this case.

Sincerely,

Father Ted Crilley.

DEAR FATHER TED,

I AM SORRY THAT OUR MINISTRY DID NOT PROMISED TO SEND $ 20 FOR THE FIRST DAY.

THEREFORE, IN THIS REGARDS, KNOWING THE RIGHT PEOPLE WITH $20 DOLLARS IS WHAT WE CAN NOT AFFORD, BECAUSE WE KNEW THAT THE TRUTH MUST BE OUT EATHER NOW OR IN THE NEXT TO COME.

WE NEVER GIVE BRIBE IN OUR MINISTRY, IF OTUMBA PROMISED TO GIVE YOU $20 DOOLARS, YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND GET THE MONEY FROM HIM, HENCE THE $20 DOLLARS IS WHAT WILL MAKE HIM BEING THE RIGHTFUL ONE.


REGARDS AND GOD BLESS YOU.


EVANG SAMUEL EZE.

 

 

[Sadly, I have to admit defeat. Looks like Samuel will not send me the $20. Three days later I send him a final email]

Dear Samuel.

How are you?

Yes, that's right, this is "Father Ted Crilley" here. Do you recognise the email you sent to "Joseph Otumba" below?

I think it is time to start telling the truth to you.

Joseph Otumba was a man I invented to fool you. In fact, Joseph Otumba and myself are one and the same person. You see, like yourself, I opened a fake Yahoo account, and sent the Otumba emails to you. I have seen the emails you sent to Joseph Otumba.

Look, I think you should start telling the truth now Samuel (maybe that is not your real name). You know and I know that the God's Love Bible Ministry does not exist. In fact, you have made this name up just to try to scam people like me out of my money. Of course, I am not a church man myself, and of course my church, "The Church of Bread & Wine" does not exist.

All the pictures of the church I sent to you were fakes. I added the name of the church myself to fool you. I have attached some pictures of the real pictures that I edited. You will see that the church is not called The Church of Bread and Wine, and the picture I sent you of Joseph Otumba with the sign was fake. I wrote the sign myself, and added it to the picture.

I really laughed so much at the church photo that you sent to me! You idiot, you sent me a picture of one of the most famous buildings in the world! The church picture you sent to me was the VATICAN in Rome. And what about that stupid sign that you made up outside the church?! That was the worst forgery I have ever seen! Even my dog would be able to make a better forgery than that.

[I attached some of the un-edited picture for him, just to rub his nose it it a little more]

 

 

Sadly Samuel hasn't given me the courtesy of replying to my email

 

END.
