FROM Barrister. Ihejirika Etunne

 

Dear Sir

 

I am Barrister  Ihejirika Etunne   a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr pitt  a national of your country, who used to work with shell development company in Nigeria and as well a one time secret agent in transfering of money overseas for the Late head of state of Nigeria {Late Gen.SANI ABACHA}.Before his death On the 21st of April 1999 my client,his wife And their three children were involved in a car accident along sagbama express road in which all occupants of the motor died}.

 

 My client{ Pitt  } deposited as family belongings in a CONSIGNMENT {ie jewelries} the sum of $10m in a Global Security and finance company here in Nigeria for himself, with the hope of transferring it to his country as soon as he is on leave.

 

Since his death I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful.

 

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

 

I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Security Company where this huge deposits were lodged.

 

Particularly, the Global Security company where the deceased had an account valued at about 10million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confisicated within the next ten official working days.

 

Since then I have been unsuccesfull in locating the the relatives for over 2years now I therefore seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of this account valued at 10million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 40% to me and 60% to you I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.

 

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from anybreach of the law.

 

Please get in touch with me through my confidential

email;ihej4444@yahoo.co.uk

 

Best regards,

 

Mr Ihejirika Etunne

Attn Steve Seagoon,

Thank you very much for your reply to my proposal. It is my delight to express happiness and readiness to work with you as a partner in this collective and mutual understanding. I want to believe that my search for an honest partner has finally ended as I prepare to work together with bwyou.

Unfortunately, it had to take the death of this Man,for such an opportunity to create itself, but I would still want you to understand that as long as Engr. Pett Seagoon money remains unclaimed, the Security company remains richer in free funds with his money. However, with my position as his attorney,

 

I can present you to claim the fund as a close relative/next of kin if you agree with me on private basis. Yes, I can present you as a next of kin because you bear the same family name with late Engr. Pett Seagoon,and it was based on this premise that I had to concentrate my search in your country with hope that I would come across someone that bears the same family name with late Engr. Pett However it was in the course of this my search that I came across your contact.

 

I then decided to contact you out of my own free will and with the hope that you'll be in a good position to render such kind of assistance to me. I hope you understand.

Furthermore, you have to understand that a business of this nature needs constant communication from both of us, either by Phone or fax. Please note that we must work with three basic principles which are TRUST, CO-OPERATION AND UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY as soon as we work with this principles we must surely achieve our goal. To commence this transaction, you are going to render these services to me:

1. I would also want you to send me your personal details i:e Full names and complete contact address that will facilitate the full legal documentation for the claim of this funds.

2.I will want you to advise me on good areas of investment where we will invest part of our own share of the fund, as we intend to invest in your country and also you should give us more light on good areas we can invest our fund.

3. Most importantly, the two parties shall disburse the proceeds of US$10m Million after the transfer to your account and you are entitled to 40% of the $10m and 60% belongs to me.

Finally, I would suggest that you also furnish me with the following informations for a more effective communication between the both of us. Your confidential Telephone/Fax numbers.

Kindly get intouch with me as soon as possible so that we can proceed accordingly.

Regards,

Barrister Ihejirika Etunne

Subject:  transfer of consignment from Nigeria to New Zealand

From:  xxxxx@yahoo.co.uk

 

Dear Mr Etunne,

 

Your proposal sounds interesting.

 

Information you requested:

 

1.  Stephen Nelson Seagoon

Director

Seagoon Automotive Group.

Post Office Box xxxx,

Mt Maunganui,

New Zealand.

 

Date of birth: 21 October, 1945

 

Mobile phone:  64 25 xxx xxxx

 

I recommend that, in the interests of security and confidentiality, we limit correspondence to e-mail.  My company phone and fax are accessible by my secretary and many other staff members and are therefore not secure.  I have included my mobile phone number.  However, I hate being interrupted by the mobile phone ringing, so I turn this off unless making or expecting a call.  If you must phone me, send me an e-mail advising the time you will make the call, or leave a voicemail.  Remember that New Zealand time is 11 hours AHEAD of UK Summer Time.

 

2.  Regarding opportunities to invest in this country, there probably would not be many better investments than in the Seagoon Automotive Group.  This is a $75 million holding company which operates eleven car sales companies, a vehicle importing franchise, a transport operation and a computer design/printing business.  Our profit after tax has been in the region of 25% on capital invested for the last 5 years, and was 26.7% on capital invested for the financial year 2003-2004.  Seagoon Automotive Group would be one of a number of worthwhile investments that I could recommend for you following the conclusion of this transaction.

 

3.  Agreed to my receiving 40% (USD 4 million) of money transferred through my account, 60% (USD 6 million) to your account, expenses to come from your share of the money transferred.

 

Now there a couple of queries I have of you.

 

How do you propose transferring the goods held by the security company?  Would you cash them in and telegraphically transfer them direct into my personal bank account?  Or would you freight them to New Zealand?  If you would freight the good, I will need to obtain a secure location in which to keep them.  How large is the consignment?

 

Then there is the matter of proof of your identity.  I would need some form of photographic identity, such as a scan of a passport or of a certificate of practice from the Nigerian Bar Association.  Later I’ll think of some way of proving that you are in fact the person described in the passport or Bar Certificate.

 

I’m looking forward to a swift and profitable conclusion to this transaction.

 

Regards

Steve Seagoon

 

Director

Seagoon Automotive Group

New Zealand

 

 

Prompt answer to my e-mail.  I’m pleased that Etunne offers transfer of the money by telegraphic transfer.  How are the security company going to convert the jewelry into cash, though this doesn’t matter much considering that there is no jewelry anyway.

From:  "IHEJ ETUNNE" <ihej_44@yahoo.co.uk>

 

Dear Steve Seagoon,

 

I wish to express my gratifications reading your email which is sufficiently self explanatory.

 

However, i would use this priviladge to brief you on the official processes to be adopted in the processing and effecting payment on your behalf as the next of kin to my deceased client.

 

We shall first start by sending a formal letter to this effect, i have already attached and sent you to text of the said transfer application, please you are expected to fill it out correctly and have it sent through the Security Company's email or fax number, after which certain documents shall be requested of you to make your claims legal and official, but do not worry, i am on the standby to provide you with such documents from the stock of documents which is presently with me, otherwise, i will facilitate our acquisition for anyone demanded outside my disposal and reach.

 

Following your request, i have made several inquiries from Global Security Coy., which the Head of Treasury P. O. Chima stated that they can only frieght the funds through their diplomatice courrier services in Brazil only if you can make the necessary arrangment to make claims and by stating how soon, he informed me that they shall assign a payment officer specially to complete this transaction and to ensure your funds are successfully claimed following the legal processes to which the transfer of inheritance demands.

 

On the contrary you would prefer a telegraphic transfer, please do not hesitate in updating the Security Company through their contact for immediate action.

 

Sir, i will be glad if you will adhere to my instruction and responding accordingly to the processing of the funds to you which is the most contribution that i may require from you to make this claims successful. I am also assuring you my maximum support to ensure i back up with the informations they may request to make your claim legal and successful.

 

I HOWEVER EXPECT YOU TO FILL THE ATTACHED TEXT OF THE APPLICATION FORM AND HAVE IT SENT DIRECTLY THROUGH THE SECURITY COMPANY'S EMAIL ADDRESS OR FAX TO ENABLE THEM COMMENCE OPERATION EFFECTIVELY.

 

Ensure you reach me directly on telephone number 234-802-3142706 round the clock.

 

Regards,

 

Etunne

 

 

I get the application form away immediately.  I send another e-mail requesting the funds be sent by telegraphic transfer.  Now let’s see what happens, I bet the bank wants a service fee or something.

And a follow up from Etunne.  Oops, he rang the phone number I gave him.  The girls at the local brothel won’t be too happy to get strange calls from someone with a heavy African accent.  But that’s cost him two international phone calls.  I’ll give him my mobile number.  He’s being very helpful.  But I don’t like the sound of “Though whatever that may be their request”, now I wonder if there’ll be some unexpected clearance fee.

Thanks for your prompt response in regard to the legacy of the deceased Mr. Pitt Seagoon , however, may i appoligise for the delays in reaching you back as a result of my tight official schedule. Please be informed that i called your phone number and i was told that there is no such person in that office, and i called again the same information was given to me, please give me an existing number to enable me reach you immediately.

 

I am very glad that they have contact you in regard to the transfer of the funds, though they promised reaching you back following their response, i may advice you to contact me as soon as you are being contacted by Global Security to enable me know the area i can be of any assistance to you, since they did accept to follow your request for the transfer of your funds through telegraphic transfer, we'll have nothing else to hold the funds than you waiting till you are being contacted to enable us know the request from them.

 

Though whatever that may be their request, we shall do what is necessary to ensure that the provision for such informations are made, so please try to reach me as soon as possible to enable me direct you further.

Dear Etunne,

 

My deepest apologies for the phone number problem.  You can be assured that you weren’t the only one inconvenienced.  For all of yesterday and for some of Tuesday, my company has been receiving calls meant for a massage parlour here in town.  My secretary contacted them, and apparently they have been receiving calls meant for our phone number.  They didn’t have the intelligence to let us know, so no-one knows how much damage has been done to our business.

 

Here is my personal mobile number, 64 25 xxx xxxx.  I hate having my mobile ring during meetings or discussions with a customer, so I leave it switched off most of the time and use it only for outwards calls.  Otherwise the damn thing would be ringing all the time.  E-mail me and let me know when you’d like to ring me and I’ll make sure it’s switched on.  Just remember that New Zealand is 11 hours ahead of UK time.  I will not be able to ring you, this is a company phone and I have a very strict company policy about staff using company phones for making personal calls.  I must adhere rigidly to this policy as an example.

 

Thanks for your help and guidance on this matter, I’ll advise you as soon as Global Security contact me again.

 

Regards

Steve Seagoon

But what is this that has arrived?  A request from Global Security for a copy of poor Pitt Seagoon’s death certificate, and lots of other stuff.  Oh, I bet there’s a fee for processing this information.  Yes, there it is in item 4.

Dear Etunne,

They request:

 

1.  Death certificate of the deceased Mr Pitt Seagoon

2.  Affidavit from the Federal Court in your name as the next of kin

3.  Deposit Certificate of the said funds as it was issued at the time of the deposit by Mr Pitt Seagoon.

4.  Evidence of the payment of the sum of US$760.00 payable in person directly at the counter and not through a proxy.

 

Would you please handle these items and make the payment out of your funds.  I will add this amount as expenses incurred to your share of the money when the transfer is finalised.

Advice from my solicitor Etunne.  He too is getting confused between Global Securities and Eagle Finance, let’s just treat them as interchangeable.  Nice that he will cover the cost of issuing the Affidavit, isn’t it a pleasure to deal with such a generous (and obviously honest) solicitor.

Subject:  MY ADVICE

From:  "IHEJ ETUNNE" <ihej_44@yahoo.co.uk>

 

Dear Steve Seagoon,

 

Thank you for your update on the message you received from Global Security Coy., so far, however i am very glad that they have contacted you, and right now they are ready to process the funds to you as the next of kin once we provide all they have requested. Though, i am happy that these are what we can afford as i presently have most of their requirments in my file.

 

NOTE THAT I HAVE THE FOLLOWING TWO DOCUMENTS:

 

1) Death Certificate of the Deceased Mr. Pitt Seagoon

 

3) Deposit Certificate of the fund as it was issued to the deceased Mr. Pitt Seagoon at the time of deposit. I have these two documents as i already told you and i shall send them to you soon.

 

THEN I ADVICE THE FOLLOWING:

 

2) The request for a sworn Affidavit for claims of inheritance from the Federal High Court in your favour.

Here i am attaching a text form, which you will fill and send to the Federal High Court as you did when you sent a letter to Eagle Finance, once i send the letter to you, you will be required to fill it out as well and send it through the Federal High Court's email address or fax number to enable them attend to it today or tomorrow, because it is obvious there are some requirements they will need to issue the affidavit, then you will send the form requesting the issuance of an Affidavit to enable you claim your inheritance from the Eagle Finance, in addition to that, your lawyer 'Barrister Etunne Ihejirika' will stand to endorse it on your behalf as the declarant. Also note that you do not have any problem as this is the area i specialize, i will do everything i can to assist you provided you are following my advice, we are working this a your due entitlement, so you shoudn't be afraid if we shall be successful, once we have heard from the Global Securities where the money is deposited, just have it in your mind that everything is completed.

 

THEN THEIR LAST REQUEST.

 

4) This should be handled accordingly, because, i've found out there's a clause on that request by them using the word 'NOT THROUGH A PROXY', they want to ensure the money comes directly from your country to avoid conspiracy to divert funds, as a result, i advice you to write a letter addressed to the Head of Treasury, P. O. Chima Global Security Coy., informing them that due to your official engagements in your country, you will not be able to attend to their requirment no.(4) as they requested that you come in person and make the payment representing the cost for Administrative/Processing Fees, hence you seek permission to request for the provision of a convenient alternative, to enable you make the payment so that they can credit your account with the total sum as the next of kin to the deceased (MR. PITT SEAGON).

NOTE THAT THERE IS AN OFFICIAL COST FOR THE ISSUANCE OF THE AFFIDAVIT, BUT I SHALL HANDLE THAT BY MYSELF, I AM ALREADY MAKING SOLID ARRANGEMNTS TO RAISE THE FUNDS AS I DID CONFIRM THIS MORNING THAT THE OFFICIAL COST IS ABOUT US$3,700.00, BUT DO NOT WORRY, JUST TAKE MY WORD, I SHALL FULLFILL MY PROMISE YOU IN AS MUCH AS YOU FOLLOW MY DIRECTIONS.

 

Hope you will understand and do as i have adviced you. Remember that what you should do is to open the file attached herewith, fill it and send immediately through the email address of the Federal High Court federalhighcourt_ng@pcpostal.com FEDERAL HIGH COURT'S FAX NO. 234-1-759-8995 so that they shall attend to it as soon as possible, secondly, you send a letter to the Global Security Coy, asking them for a convenient alternative to enable you make the payment of US$760.00 (seven hundred and sixty dollars) representing the cost of administrative/processing fees so that they can process your inheritance immediately.

 

Thank you for your understanding as i look forward to hearing from you.

So, I forward my application to the federal High Court, bet this is going to cost some money.  I make some corrections, like the name SEAGOON, and I’ll BCC Etunne to keep him from having apoplexy.  Mind there’s something suspicious here, maybe because a Federal High Court will have a free-mail internet address or that it would accept an e-mailed application with typed signatures of the applicant and witness.

Lastly, i asked you to write a letter to the Global Security asking them to make provision for an alternative to enable you make the payment of 760 dollars representing the cost for administrative/processing fees which they requested that it should be paid in person at the counter and not through a proxy, i know they might accept your offer, because quite impossible for you to make such trip since there should be am alternative for such payment. Please it would be nice if you follow my advice as make the request, though you should humble yourself in this regard, because of what we are pursuing, once you make the request, there is every tendency that they would respond, i would have assisted you, but they need the money paid directly from you as a result, they want to confirm that the money comes directly from your country to ensure their dealings with you, as to quide against conspiracy to divert funds.

 

Could you please confirm that you are following the process as it demands.

 

Hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

 

I. Etunne Esq.

Dear Steve Seagoon,

I have just returned from the Global Security Company to find out if the fund were received, most surprisingly, i was told that the information you gave to them was invalid, after their discovery of the wrong information, they also sent you an email yesterday which the response have not been received till date.

I am advicing you to resolve this matter as soon as possible, i can't understand why you would do such in a transaction involving such amount of money, you couldn't even consider the problems this funds will solve for our families.

Please i am asking that you do your best to see that you send the money, this is the more reason why i couldn't send the Death Certificate and the Deposit Certificate today. The affidavit will still be process by me once i get confirmation that you have made the payment of 760 representing the cost for processing/administrative fees correctly to the authorities.

I am waiting for the confirmation that you have sent the money to Global Security Company first thing tomorrow morning.

Please keep me posted.

Dear Mr Chima,

 

I cannot understand what has happened concerning the Western Union money transfer.  This is the first time I have used this system, and I had understood that it was reasonably foolproof.

 

However, I know that I made a mistake with the original Money Transfer Control Number I sent you - listing only nine digits instead of ten.

 

I have checked the Money Transfer Control Number from the form and it is correct, MTCN NO:  0410469432.

 

I am attaching a scan of the money transfer receipt to this e-mail, as I promised in my last e-mail, as file <WU Receipt.jpg>.

 

I will check the Western Union agency here today, and find out the cause of any problem.

Dear Mr Chima,

 

I went down to my local Western Union agency as soon as I had received your e-mail to follow up on the problem you seem to be having with the money transfer.  If there is any problem then I think it lies here with the Western Union agency in Mt Maunganui, New Zealand.  Mt Maunganui is a small town really and I don’t think they handle many money transfers at all.

 

After some lengthy discussion they agreed that they may have made a mistake with the money transfer that I sent you.  They traced it and it was never collected in Lagos.  I had some problems explaining to them that Lagos is a city, that Nigeria is a country, and that both could appear together on the receipt.

 

So, I have cancelled the original money transfer I sent you with the control number 0410469432.

 

I have sent you another money transfer, and have obtained an electronic method of transferring the control number to you there at your computer.  The people in the Western Union agency say this is a new, absolutely secure method of transferring funds.

 

They have given me a small electronic file to send to you, and you just open this on any computer connected to the internet.  The file automatically connects to the Western Union server, downloads details of the money transfer, and shows the details and control number of the money transfer for you to give to the Western Union agency.  You can even print out the display that it shows and present this print out to the local Western Union agency.

 

You will see a file attached to this e-mail titled <chiawalam.gif>.  Open that file, and you will then see the file automatically connect to the Western Union server and then give you all the details you require.

Thanks for your mails and your information you fowarded to me regarding the payment. First i have to appologise for the delay in replying your mails due to i was busy trying to find out if the security company has collected the money or not.

Finally i confirmed the security company has cashed the money and by monday i will be sending you the copy of the Affidavit and the certificate of the deposite so that we can move ahead for the claim.

Already i was told by the director of the security company that as soon as we get the required documents that they are going to release the fund to you through their affilate office in Switzerland which you will be required to come over there for final sighning of the release of the fund.

Waiting to hear from you.

I’m glad the money transfer got through and this project is proceeding.  I look forward to the funds being released as soon as possible.

 

However the need for me to travel to Switzerland is a bit of a shock to me.  I had been made to understand that these funds would be released by telegraphic transfer.  There must be some way of releasing these funds without me having to travel to Switzerland, such as a signatory declaration or witnessed affidavit.

Now I’m getting worried, did I make up an exact WUXfer control number and guess the same question and answer.  Do I go back and say “NO, you haven’t received my money”?

Regarding to the payment you made to the security company is the for the processing of the payment not for documents because they know that the lawyer will assist for the documents they required from you, please follow my instruction so that we can conclude this transaction within short time.you know that i am the one that introduced you to this business, so let's work like a brother and get this transaction done, already i ahve applied for the documents yesterday and they are waiting for the fee so that i can collect and despatch to you through fedex courier service.

From:  xxxxx@yahoo.co.uk

 

Dear Etunne,

 

Thanks for the explanation.  I’ll get down to the bank on Friday morning and withdraw the money and get it transferred to Mr Cletus Oforji.

 

Regarding your request for my cell phone number, the number I have given you is my cell phone, 64 25 xxx xxxxx.  But I leave my cell phone turned off all the time, I only turn it on when I want to make a phone call.  I hate it when you’re doing something important and the bloody phone rings!

 

Anyway, I have received a number of voicemails from you, or at least I assume they are from you now that you tell me that you’ve rung my phone.  The background noise is so bad that I have been unable to determine just who it was making the calls.  As well, one of the calls came in at 3.40 am – that is 20 minutes to 4 IN THE MORNING!  I don’t talk to anyone, even you wanting to dispose of $10 million, at 3.40 in the morning.

 

I am also very concerned about making , and certainly receiving, phone calls from Western Africa.  There was an article in the newspaper, and have received a number of e-mails, about people dying when answering the phone in Western Africa.

 

Apparently some method of telephonic assassination was invented by the American CIA, they wanted to use it to kill Usama Bin Laden.  But the secret has been stolen by criminals in Western Africa and its use has now got out of hand.

 

When you answer the phone there is a burst of extremely high frequency radio waves from the ear piece, these cause the cells of the brain to swell and burst, and the person who has just answered the phone collapses dead with blood oozing out of their ears, eyes, nose and mouth.  Apparently death is almost instantaneous and there is little or no pain.  But death is death, and so I’m not making or taking any phone calls from Western Africa.

 

Anyway, I will be off down to the bank on Friday to get and send you the money we need to obtain the affidavit from the court.

Dear Etunne,

 

I knew I had seen a newspaper article about deaths linked to the phone.  Here is a cutting from my local newspaper that I have scanned.  I’ve also had a number of e-mails from friends telling me about this.

 

Needless to say, I won’t be making any phone calls to Africa, and I am holding the phone well away from my ear when I answer any calls until I establish that it is safe to talk to the caller.

 

But the main problem about calling or taking calls from you is the inconvenient to be getting phone calls in the middle of the night.  As I said, my cell phone is always switched off anyway.

Dear Etunne,

 

I have just got back from the bank and the Western Union agency.  They have got to know me well down there now.

 

I have transferred the $US 3500.00 to Mr Oforji.

 

The Western union office asked if I would like to use the internet based electronic method of transferring the control number that we used to transfer the money to Mr Chiawalam of Global security.  I said yes, seeing it worked so well then.

 

They have given me the small electronic file to forward to you.  I went down to the Western Union agency without a copy of your e-mail, and couldn’t remember what the question and answer were that you had set.  So the question and answer that I thought up have been inserted in the electronic clearance file.

 

The electronic control number file is attached to this e-mail as <wuxfer cletus oforji.gif>.  Open that file, and you will then see the file automatically connect to the Western Union server and then give you all the details you require.    One thing they emphasised, while the electronic file is operating, please do not use any other function on your computer.

 

Please pass the control number and question and answer on to Mr Oforji.

 

Regards

Steve Seagoon.

 

 

Locked out!

 

OH NO!!!!  I mistakenly send this message, meant for another lad that I am also baiting, to Etunne.

I am Usman Bello. Are you confused? You should be very confused, and very worried. I know you a guyman.

 

To prove what I am, to show I access Seagoon e mail, I sent message to you from e mail of Steve Seagoon and then took it out of Seagoon sent box. It said Western Union money transfer had been sent. Control number 6904573287 made out to Azubuike Chigozie, Question What do we believe? Answer Eternal life.

 

And I signed it from Father Steve Seagoon, Director of Foreign Aid Projects, Church of Holey Fisherman, Watership Down, Buckinghamshire, England.

 

I know from my school in England that Watership Down is a child book about rabbits. A holey fisherman is a fisherman with holes in him. I make up the Western union control number. Chigozie is an pretend man. The question and answer is christain belief.

 

THIS MAN IS MINE NOW. I have open the file in Seagoon last e mail. I have cashed the Western Union transfer he sent to you. I have $3500 in my bank account now. I close your e mail account while I do this. I own his e mail account steveseagoon@yahoo.co.uk.

 

You listen to me good.  You keep sending e mails to Seagoon.  But I will take the money.  If you continue sending e mails to Seagoon I will give you 20% of money I take from now.  If you stop sending e mails to Seagoon I WILL CHOP YOUR HEAD OFF AND POST IT TO YOU FAMILY.  You understand.

 

I know who you are.  I know where you are.  I give you 20% of the $3500 I have just taken.  I will leave $700 in American money in envelope for you at the internet cafe in Ikeja where you send you e mails.

 

Be very frightened.  Do not warn Seagoon.  I know now everthing he gets and says in e mail.

 

Usman Bello

 

 

I’d better get a message off to Etunne confirming that the money transfer has been cashed.

Dear Etunne,

 

I have just checked on the Western Union website and seen that the money transfer I sent to Mr Oforji has been cashed.

 

I hope you be able to process the documents at High court immediately.

 

Please let me know if anything further is needed to progress this transaction.

Dear Steve,

Thanks for your mail and the informations you sent to me, now i have really found out that you are not seriuos in this transaction because your first mail with the control number and the recievers name has nothing to do with the information i gave to you and this cletus oforji you are talking about is my secretary how does it get the information to cash the money?

My dear friend i really find out that you are joking with this transaction and this will be the last mail i write to you, let me look for someone who is seriuos.This attitued now shows that first money you sent to the security company was not recieved up till now i am still having problems with them becaue they are telling me that they did not recieve the money, so let me stop beacsue i no longer have trust in you because of your today's mail.

Thanks

Etunne.

 

 

Now let’s see if I can sow seeds of mistrust, or strengthen the Usman Bello rumour.  Steve Seagoon will have to wait until later to clear this message.  Oh, by the way, I suspect Usman Bello had stolen the Security Company’s money as well.

Ihejirika Etunne,

 

You have call Steve Seagoon a liar!!!!  That is bad, I can not leave you any money if you do not help me.  I might evn have to chop off your head!  BEWARE OF USMAN BELLO!

 

I see your e mail in the box of Steve Seagoons.  I can not open the mail becuase he will see I have read it.  I will read it later when he has open it.  If you do what I tell you not do, then you family will be bury you soon.

 

You are mugu!!!!  I give you chance to work with best guyman in world and you call Steve Seagoon a liar.  What way that to get more money, fool.

 

I said, Be very frightened.  Do not warn Seagoon.  I know now everthing he gets and says in e mail.  Hear my word you idot!

 

You send sorry e mail NOW, tell Steve Seagoon you confused.  Tell him Cletus Oforji has stole money and you have got the money back and he is no longer work for you.

 

You like to keep your head on your neck, do it NOW!

 

Usman Bello

 

 

Now let’s see how Etunne handles some facts and figures about the two money transfers being cashed.  I hope this sows seeds of distrust between Etunne and his associates.  I’m a little disappointed that the e-mails from Usman Bello aren’t having as much effect as I had hoped.

Dear Etunne

 

Now what brings on these harsh words.

 

What do you mean that my first e-mail with the control number and the reciever’s name had nothing to do with the information you gave me?

 

I have sent only one e-mail with Western Union information in it to you, I sent it to you on Friday 30 July and I have copied it from my sent box and attached it below for your information

 

I did forget to take a copy of your instructions to the Western Union agency, I took just a slip of paper with Cletus Oforji’s name on it.  Therefore the security question and answer had to be something I thought up on the spot, and the Western Union agency included those on the small electronic file I sent you.

 

I have also checked with the Western Union agency about the money transfer for $760 that I sent to Mr Chiawalam of Global Security Company.  It was cashed at 10.27 am on Friday 23 July at the First Bank of Nigeria, Surulre Branch, Itere Rd, Lagos.  I would ask Mr Chima what he means by saying the money transfer has not been cashed, I received an e-mail from him at Global Security Company on the 26 July saying that the money transfer had been cashed.

 

Similarly, the money transfer for $3500 for Mr Oforji was cashed at 3.46 pm on Friday 30 July at the same branch of the First Bank of Nigeria.  I see in my e-mail below that I sent the electronic file <wuxfer cletus oforji.gif> only to you.  If Cletus Oforji cashed this money then you must have given him the control number and security question and answer.

 

You had better check with your associates.  I would suggest asking them simple questions such as “Where were they at those times”, and “What have you done with the money!”

 

Regards

Steve Seagoon

Etunne,

 

I have waited several weeks waiting for advice from you about the money transfers I have sent.

 

Please confirm that Mr Oforji get his money transfer.  Western Union told me the money transfer was cashed on July 30th, and I have heard no more since e-mail of 2nd August which I had trouble understanding.

 

I must hear from you about what has happened to this money!

I get a MAILER-DAEMON e-mail from Yahoo telling me that Etunne’s e-mail address no longer exists.   Guess this bait is over.
