[Ok.. Before I start, I need to explain something. The whole point of taking on this particular scam was to try and get a picture of a lad holding up a picture saying 'Trust Pablo'.. Why? Because my friend and I are setting up a comedy website about one of our pals, and needed a suitable 'trust pablo' amusing caption. I thought a 'lad' would do nicely for this. So, I called myself Pablo as  away of making this job easier!

My Scammers emails are in Grey. Mine are generally in Black, but I add a few more colours as time goes on and new characters are added!

And so it starts...]

[Hoo hoo!! Check out my dodgy website. Just shows that the scammers really don't bother to do their homework!]

 

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello again..

Well, I am the Managing Director of an oil exploration company called Globaloil. I like to spend most of my time out in the field, prospecting for Oil.

At the moment, I am in the deserts of Scotland, on a big find. Weíre hoping to strike Oil near to Glasgow somewhere, but so far weíve only found Golden Showers which arenít really going to make us a lot of money.

If you like, you can look at the Globaloil website.

It is www.81x.com/globaloil/globaloil

Please forgive that the website is very basic, but as you understand we are not really the sort of company that deals Ďonlineí so an Internet presence is not normally required. We only paid about $10,000 for the site, which is small change as far as we are concerned.

At Globaloil, we probably turnover about $20 million dollars per year. We are the 4th biggest supplier to the ĎOil a Maní Oil company, which is the biggest petroleum supplier in the UK.

 

I am un married, as I prefer to have no ties and work out in the field wherever possible, although I must admit I do occasionally partake in some crazy dogging with some nice $5 sluts from Amsters, usually after getting totally coked up out of my tree. Do you like to be coked up?

 

Iím looking forward to hearing from the bank.

 

Cheers,

Pablo.

So what's the score? What type of letter do you cats want?

Just let me know so I can get on the case.

 

I'm still oil prospecting, but I'll be able to get my secretary to sort it out.

 

 

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Shit man, the bank are asking me for a letter to prove Iím the next of kin. What, oh what will I do?

How can I get such a letter? If only I were able to pay someone to provide me a letter, then all would be well.

Having gone this far already, I really need to complete this transaction as soon as possible.. I suppose spending a bit on a letter wonít be a major problem..

Please contact me urgently.. As I am away, I may need to get my Secretary, Miss. Ing to complete the transaction on my behalf, but we cannot tell her what the transaction is. This must remain OUR secret, or the deal is off! I will just ask my secretary to ĎTrust Pabloí.. I am always telling her this!!

 

And what is your weather like today?

Here in Scotland, it is about 80 degrees.. quite hot really, even for this place.

We had to chase off some haggis yesterday that were trying to steal the food from our tents, but we managed to get rid of the little critters just in time.

We also had some local weegie soap dodgers trying to nick our mobiles.. the cads.

 

All the best,

[Time to go in for the photo!!]

 

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello!

Yes, I got the form off the bank. I will fill this out later, but at the moment I am still out oil prospecting, so it is difficult to print it and then send it back.

I should be able to do this later on today though, or tomorrow at the latest.

 

The bank have asked for an $800 fee to change the bank details over. This is a mere drop in the ocean, so that is no problem..

I will arrange with my Secretary to get this amount paid to the person on the email from the bank.

 

The only problem though (which is nothing of a problem I know) is that my Secretary, Miss. Ing, will only pay money out when she has had photographic identification.

Iím afraid that as we are an oil company, we have many enemies, so we always keep a photographic record of whomever we have dealings with.

Once deals are closed, we then destroy the photographs, so there is no need to worry.

Would it be possible to provide my secretary with a proof of identity?

Can you email it to her..

Her name is Miss. Ing, and her email address is secretary@*****.*****

 

If you can get the photo to her today, I should be able to get her to go to the nearest western union office in the morning to pay the $800. We have that much in the safe as cash, so we donít need to worry about our banks being closed.

 

I look forward to hearing from you..

Pablo..

*******************************************************************************************************************************

 

Dr Pablo to Union Bank:

 

Hello.

I am in receipt of your form, and I will complete the form and fax it back to you later.

I am oil prospecting in the desert at the moment, so it is not easy to print documents, as I only have my laptop.

However, I will be stopping by Glasgow later today, which is a small village in Scotland, but I am told they do have printers and scanners.

 

Regards,

Pablo.

[Who the hell is Williams? Oh well. carry on anyway..]

 

Williams? to Dr Pablo:

Hello My Good Brother Pablo,

I just realise something after I sent you an email.

I do not know how possible it's, if I invite you to
come down here in Nigera to see everything with two of
your eyes?I will also take you to the bank(FBN)were
this money were deposited so u see everything that i
am telling all this while.

Please do let me know if this will be okay with you.
Williams
*******************************************************************************************************************************

 

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Thankyou for the offer, and I'm sure that in time I will visit Nigeria.
However, at the moment, I am stuck on an Oil Exploration expedition.
This is going to keep me busy for at least the next couple of weeks,
probably the next couple of months. It all depends on whether we strike
oil or not.. Fingers crossed, eh?
I've attached a recent picture of ourselves at the start of the
expedition.. This was taken a couple months ago, as we were about to
head out into the deserts of Scotland. I am on the far right of the
picture.

All I am asking is some proof of identification.
I have spoken to my Secretary, and asked her to release the $850 to the
bank, along with the bankers information that they require.
She insists that I send her some photographic proof of identity of the
person we are sending the money to, before she will send it.

She will be going into town tomorrow, where there is a Western Union
office, so I can assure you that if I can get the proof of identity to
her, she will pay the money to the bank tomorrow, and also fax the copy
of the form to them at the same time.

All I need is a picture of you. To prove that the picture is of
yourself, and not one that is copied from the Internet, I need you to
hold up a notice saying 'Trust Pablo'.. That is all I require for our
records, and once the transaction of $850 is complete, the picture will
be deleted.

For the size of the transaction we are dealing with, I don't think this
is too much to ask is it?
If you are serious about this deal, it will not be a problem with you.
Of course I trust you 100%, but it is my secretary who will be sending
the money as I am on an oil exploration.
Once I can send her proof of identity, she will be happy and proceed.

Unfortunately our company is so large that it is very difficult to get
rules broken. If I were in the office myself, I would of course send the
$850 myself, but there is no Western Union in the deserts of Scotland.

I hope that you understand me, so we can move ahead with the deal as
soon as possible.

As $850 is a trivial amount for us, I can as my secretary, as a gesture
of good-will to you, to also send you $500 for your trouble.
Just let me know who this is to be sent to, and I will ask her to send
that, as well as the $850. This will mean a total of $1350 that we will
send.
But you must send the picture for our proof of identity, holding the
sign saying 'Trust Pablo'

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dr. Pablo J. Wind.

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello Ariwa.. And happy new year to you! Or perhaps I should say, Uncuntumquanda!!

 

I have not been able to send the form yet, as I cannot get to a fax machine. My secretary will send it with $1500,

She was at the Western Union office yesterday, but she could not send the money, as she did not have the identification. She had to bring it back with her, but it is on her desk ready to send as soon as the identification is proven.

Please remember that an identity card is not sufficient proof of identity, as these are easily stolen of forged.

To provide proper identification, that we can trust, you must send a picture of yourself holding a piece of paper with ĎTrust Pabloí written on it.

This is a statement that you trust me, and that I can trust you.

I am sending you a picture of myself at the start of our recent oil exploration trip. I am on the right of the picture..

I hope you can send identification soon, and I will ask my secretary to release the form to the bank, and also the funds for your trouble.

 

Take care my friend.

[Is that a dodgy picture covering up another dodgy picture? Nah.. surely not!]

 

 *******************************************************************************************************************************

 

Miss Ing to Ariwa:

 

Dear Mr. Ariwa.

I have received the picture but sadly this form of identification is not sufficient for our records. Many identifications can be forged, and indeed the one you have sent looks like a photograph has been stuck over the original picture of the original identification.

My Boss, Dr. Wind has instructed me to pay a sum of money to you by Western Union. I do have this money ready to send to you, but I need to be clear of the following things.

1.                                                       What is the name of the person the money will be sent to via Western Union

2.                                                       What question and password would you like me to use on the Western Union form.

3.                                                       I need the correct identification.

 

Dr. Wind has instructed me that you will be sending me a picture of yourself holding a sign stating ĎTrust Pabloí. This would be sufficient identification, as it proves it is a real picture of yourself, and not a forgery.

Upon production of this picture, and the above information of the Western Union recipient, I will transfer the money immediately.

Please understand that although Dr. Wind is very keen to complete this transaction as soon as possible, I must keep to company guidelines before releasing the money.

Dr. Wind asked me to remind you to ĎTrust Pabloí as he put it, and also remind you that as he is eager to complete the transaction, and has the money waiting.

 

Yours,

Miss Dawn Ing.

At first we thought sheíd gone home straight after visiting the Western Union office, but she has not turned up for work today.

Someone in the office phoned her home address, and her Girlfriend says that she did not come home last night.

It is not like her to disappear like this, so we have called the Police. They tell me that she did not go to the Western Union office, as they have no record of her having made a transaction.

 

We are hoping that she is okay, but I must say we are very worried about her. She has never done this before and it is very strange.

Unfortunately, I am still out in the Oil Fields, so I am powerless to do anything myself, and it is very frustrating and worrying.

Donít worry, the deal is still on, we just need to find out what has happened to Miss. Ing.

 

I will keep you updated as and when I have any news.

 

We are about to dig a new bore hole this afternoon, so we are hoping we will hit Oil this time. If we do, it should be quite a good strike, so fingers crossed, eh?

 

Please bear with me while we are in this difficult time.

 

Regards,

Pablo.

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello Ariwa..

 

Well, we are all greatly saddened as we still have not heard from Miss. Ing.

There has been an appeal on local radio, and the Police are very concerned with her disappearance.

 

Can you ask the bank to re-send the forms to me, and I will try and find someone else who can complete them.

I am still oil prospecting in the desert, so I am not near a fax machine or anything like that.

 

Iím sorry about this.

 

Our thoughts are with Miss. Ing. We hope she will return safely..

 

Regards,

Pablo.

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello Ariwa. I am fine. I hope you are also well.

 

Iím sorry for not replying sooner, but I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that Miss Ing has still not returned.

We are very very worried now. She has taken her passport, so we are very worried that she might have taken the $1500 and left the country. She did not tell anyone about this, and she hasnít taken any of her belongings.

However, if she has decided to leave, we are happy that at least she might be safe.

Of course, I will let you know of any developments on this matter.

 

The good news is also the reason I have not been in contact. We have struck Oil at last!! On Saturday the hole we were drilling was successful, and now we are going to be pumping 1 million barrels of oil per day. We will be rich beyond out wildest dreams!

We have already agreed with Shell and Total oils, that we will sell them 500,000 barrels per day each. This is rather a lot of oil, so we are having to purchase some more oil tankers to transport this.

We are also finding ways to transport the oil from the Desert. Until a pipeline is completed, we are going to be using Sandcrawlers. These are driven by friendly people called Jawas. Do you have Jawas where you come from?

We are soon going to be selling shares in Global Oil. At the launch price, they will be $5 each share, but with the amount of oil we are pumping, the share price will be at least $500 per share before the end of February. Please do not tell anyone this, as it is a big company secret.

Anybody buying shares in Global Oil at the moment is in for a very pleasant surprise!

Of course, for legal reasons, I am not allowed to suggest to you that you purchase shares in Global Oil, but I think you would be stupid not to!

 

With regards to the bank, yes, I got the form and I will endeavour to complete that as soon as I can. As Miss Ing is no longer with us, I will have to find someone else in the office to complete it for me.

 

Take care my friend..

 

Pablo..

Now a very rich Oil Tycoon!!!

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello my good friend!!

It is okay.. I sent you an email last night. Did you receive it? We have struck oil !! We are pumping 1 million barrels of oil per day! Itís fantastic! We are all going to be rich!

 

Today we stopped at Glasgow on the way into the Desert, and I was able to print the bank form, and so I am about to send it to the bank.

Sadly, there isnít a Western Union in Glasgow, as the soap dodging weegie bastards burnt it down some time ago. I will be able to arrange the funds to the bank though very soon, as I think we should be replacing Miss. Ing soon. She still has not turned up.

I have attached this weekends ĎFulchester Timesí which is the local newspaper where she lives. They ran a story about her disappearance.

 

I look forward to hearing you soon. I feel we are close to completing the deal!!!

Take care my friend..

Pablo..

I just hope Gail Porter doesn't mind me borrowing her face.]

Hello!!

I am sorry for the delay. I have had problems that I cannot begin to explain to you.

Here is the revalidation form. (Attached).

I will be sending the money for the withdrawal fee very soon.

Please re-confirm the names of the recipients of the funds, also the address of the Western Union office I am to send it to, and also a password to give.

 

Best regards,

 

Dr. Pablo J. Wind.

 

 

 

*******************************************************************************************************************************

 

[Now this may be interesting!]

 

Miss Ing to Ariwa:

 

Dear Barrister.

This letter may be a surprise to you. I have decided that the offer you made to Dr. Wind is too good an offer to refuse.

Dr. Wind has lots of money already, but I am very poor. For this reason, I took the $1500 myself, and I am currently in hiding at a friends house in Capetown, South Africa.

If you are willing, I would like to take over the business deal. I still have the $1500 that I could send you.

Please, do not tell Dr. Wind, as I know that Global Oil are looking for me, and I do not wish for them to know where I am. This is very secret, and I must beg for your secrecy in this matter.

I will miss my friends in Fulchester, but the stress of life there was too great for me.

Please let me know if you are willing to continue the deal, but you MUST NOT tell Dr. Wind that you have heard from me.

Yours,

Jane Dawn Ing. (Miss)

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

[With Miss Ing missing, there's only one group I can contact to help me. wanted for a crime they did not commit, I managed to find them.. and got help from.. The A Team!]

 

The bitch! The total bitch!

Not only have I today found out from you that she is alive and well, and in Capetown, but I also find out that she has cleared $76000 out of the company bank account!!!

This is terrible news. We were worried that she was perhaps injured or had been kidnapped, and now we find out she is a common thief!

My friend, I thankyou for this information. You will be rewarded for this.

We know where her friends live in Capetown, as we have traced the telephone calls she made before she left.

As I know that I can trust you, I will tell you that I will be recovering the money that she has stolen from me.

I have today dispatched a Ďfriendí of mine who will recover the money from her. I will refer to him only as ĎMr Tí. Once he arrives in South Africa, he will make sure that this time she really does disappear. And she will not be contacting ANYONE again, except perhaps from a shallow grave somewhere.

We are serious people at Global Oil, and we do not take lightly to thieves.

I have sent the form back to the bank today my friend, and I am just waiting confirmation of the amount they need. The extra money for you, I will send separately once we have caught up with Miss Ing. She is going to be very, very sorry.

I thank you again,

Pablo.

Miss Ing to Ariwa:

 

Hello Barrister.

 

I have not heard from you. Is everything okay?

I am very worried that without your help I am in trouble. Dr. Wind is not a very nice person. He is greedy and used to treat me very badly as an employee. I knew secrets about Global Oil, and their business dealings that meant if I was to ever leave, he would not let me. This is why I had to take the action to run away when I got the chance.

 

Please, I am only young. I have so much of my life ahead of me and I donít know what to do.

Now I am in South Africa, and I want to continue the transaction that Dr. Wind started. I need the money to survive, but Dr. Wind just needs the money to add to the millions that he already has.

 

I am scared.. please help..

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Itís okay my friend.

Mr T will be arriving in Capetown this evening, and he will hunt down Miss Ing. Do not tell anybody, but he has instructions to make her disappear.

Once he has the money off her, I am hoping he will travel to Nigeria to pay the money to the bank directly. I think this is the easiest way, as I canít get to a Western Union office.

I feel sorry for Miss Ing, as soon she will be dead. Ha ha! Nobody steals from me and gets away with it!

Many have tried, and many have paid the price.

I will find a picture of Mr T, and arrange his visit to Nigeria. Perhaps you could meet him?

Pablo.

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello Ariwa.

We will occasionally use the same account, as it is one that can be accessed via Webmail. Do you know what webmail is? It means if we are travelling we can use Email in an internet cafť.

The account you mentioned is one for someone that used to work for Global oil that works with Webmail. It also gets used by about 6 other people, but we always delete the emails each time we send from the account. You shouldnít email to that account though, as it is not secure to send to as so many people read it.

When I emailed you, I was in an Internet Cafť in Glasgow. When Mr T emailed you I believe he was in a hotel in Johannesburg.

If it quite normal.

 

Mr T will arrange flights with you directly. He is currently in America as his passport would not allow him to travel anywhere else without first gaining a visa.

I believe he is doing this now.

 

He will be in touch soon. I havenít heard from him since yesterday, but he may be travelling.

All is in hand, and all is going to plan.

 

Best regards,

 

Pablo.

Hello Ariwa!

I had a very good weekend thankyou. We went to Edinburgh for the weekend, and went to a nightclub. Despite my size, I am quite a hit with the ladies and managed to pull a couple of nice blondes. It was back to the Hotel for some Ďhows your fatherí. Trouble was, one turned out to be a geezer!! I was so mad.. still, I cut my losses and dogged the bird for a bit.

 

I have copied this email to Mr. T as he is arranging a flight today to Nigeria. Once he arrives, he will meet with you and pay the cash.

This will fasten up the whole deal, as where he is there is no western union office. I expect he will be able to arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday at the very latest.

Heís been lying low since Miss Ing Ďdisappearedí if you know what I mean.. although I now believe she had turned up again floating in a river. I guess the carpet wasnít tied up properly.

 

Can you email myself/Mr T on which Airport is the closest to you?

 

Thanks,

Dr. Pablo.

BEST REGARDS

BARRISTER ARIWA

*******************************************************************************************************************************

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Ariwa, of course there is a western union office in the USA.. but you must remember that currently Mr T has the Police looking for him. It is difficult for him to move about easily without being seen. This is why he is looking to leave Atlanta as soon as possible, as it is dangerous for him.

If you can email him the airport he needs to fly to, he will do so.

If you do not want to meet him it is okay, Iím sure there is a western union office in Nigeria so I can send him there when he arrives.

For now though, he must leave Atlanta as soon as possible or he will be in big trouble.

I am serious about the transaction, so donít be confused.

I appreciate your patience in this matter.

 

Once Mr T arrives, he will be carrying $50,000 which is the money he has left after flights, etc.. this is a small amount of money to us at Global Oil, but he will still need protection to carry that much money.

He has arranged protection for when he arrives.

Dr Pablo to Ariwa,  cc Mr T:

 

Ariwa, all is going to plan.

Mr. T has told me that his flight is now booked, and he will be arriving sometime on Wednesday.

 

Will it be possible to meet him from the airport? I am worried that as Interpol are after him, he needs to get off the streets as soon as possible.

Also, Mr. T. is very easy to spot, which is another concern.

 

I have attached a picture of him so you can recognise him when he arrives. He does not like to be photographed, but this is a recent picture when he was on another Ďjobí for Global Oil.

 

Best regards,

 

Pablo.

[Perhaps I should give up now.. but then againÖ.]

 

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Ariwa, what the hell are you on about? Unserious? One person has already died because of this transaction, and you think that I am not serious?

As I write this, Mr. T is on a plane, having had some milk, on his way to see you with $50,000. All he is carrying with him is a welder and some cigars that Hannibal gave to him, to present you with when he arrives.

If he arrives to find that it is YOU that is not serious about this transaction, then we will not be happy at all.

 

If you had bothered to do your research, you would see we are a serious and wealthy company. Did you even bother to look at the Global Oil website that I sent you the link to?

 

Once Mr. T arrives today, this transaction must and will be concluded.

I think you should go and meet Mr. T off the flight today. You have his flight details, and you know what he looks like. It may help to put his name on a sign, so he will recognize you. I have not sent him a picture of you so he doesnít know what you look like.

 

Do not fall down at this late stage!

Regarding Mr. T, I know that he definitely flew on the flight, as his friends (and my friends) Murdoch and Hannibal took him too the airport, gave him some milk, and put him on the plane.

I have not heard from him yet, but it may be that he is tired from traveling and has gone for rest in a hotel. He is instructed to contact you, so donít worry.

 

Did you hold up a sign at the airport with his name on it? If not, he may not have recognized you and walked past you.

 

Please keep in touch, as I will also.

Regards,

Pablo.

 

 

*******************************************************************************************************************************

 

[Alas, now Iím a bit bored with Ariwa. Besides, heís probably had enough now and I canít be bothered scam baiting him now it will be harder. Time for one last email. Who knows.. will he email me back?]

 

Dr Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Ariwa, I have terrible news.

The reason you could not find Mr. T is because he has been arrested at the airport.

When he left Atlanta, the airport recognized him and the police in Nigeria we ready at Nigeria and arrested him as soon as he landed off the plane.

 

They have sent me the attached picture to confirm his identification.

 

I donít know what to do now. It is terrible, as he is responsible for the death of Miss Ing, and all because of this transaction.

I have been told I must immediately return to the office, and leave the oil fields in order to attend an urgent international police investigation.

It is not safe anymore.

I am going to have to destroy all the records on my laptop, and I would suggest that you delete all the emails that I have sent you for your own safety. I can no longer guarantee that this transaction can be kept secret.

I have deleted all of Mr Tís emails, so your mobile number is safe.

 

My friend, I am sorry this has ended this way, and it is terrible that one person has lost their life, but for your own safety this is necessary.

 

Dr. Pablo J Wind

*******************************************************************************************************************************

Dr. Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Hello Ariwa.

 

Well, itís all gone a bit quiet at the moment. I *think* that I have convinced the Police that Global Oil had nothing to do with the death of Miss Ing.

The only problem we have is that when Mr. T is deported to the UK for questioning, the police in the UK will discover the $50,000 that he was carrying. He has it hidden in his luggage in a milk carton, so the police in Nigeria have not found It yet. Did you manage to find out which Police station he had been taken to? I have not heard from him, and he is unlikely to talk to the Police.

I need to try and find a way of stopping the money going with him to the UK, and then it will all be good as he will have no evidence of any Ďdealí and we will be in the clear.

I need to find someone that will be able to pretend to be Mr. Tís next of kin, who can go and claim his possessions before he is deported to the UK.

This will be quite easy as I know a man who can make fake British Passports. I canít get to him though as I am miles away, and all my telephone calls are being monitored by the police.

 

I will let you know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Pablo.

[Don't get shirty with me! Right, you're for it now..]

Dr. Pablo to Union Bank:

Right.

I sent you FIVE (5) emails over the last couple of days asking what I need to do to pay you the money. You have answered NONE of them! WHY are you ignoring me? I think that perhaps you have decided to STEAL my money for yourself. It is many millions of dollars, and I know this can be tempting.

Just tell me what I have to do. This has dragged on long enough and I want my money from you NOW. You have had bank details from me, and Barrister Ariwa has sorted everything out. You want $800? Well why don't you take it out of the money you have held for me? I will send the $800, but I need you to reconfirm the names of the people I am sending it to by Western union, and also I will need addresses and contact phone numbers. Then you can give me my money right away. Please re confirm my account details that I originally gave you. I want to make sure before I send you the money, that you have my correct details.

Tell me again how much money of mine you have. Reconfirm all the details, and I'll send you the money.

Getting very frustrated with your bank now.

Pablo.

*******************************************************************************************************************************

[But the email bounces! Grrr.. time to get my Barrister on the case! he's there for this reason]

Dr. Pablo to Union Bank:

WHY when I am sending letters to the bank do they keep coming back to me like this????? WHAT IS GOING ON!! I HAVE TRIED TO EMAIL THE BANK 5 TIMES, AND THEY ALL GET REJECTED LIKE THIS ONE!

I have been patient and tried to conclude this deal, but the bank have got email that is SHIT! I am VERY UNHAPPY with the bank. I try to pay them as I now have a way of doing so (I am in Edinburgh for this week, so I can get to the western union office) and I get NOTHING!

If you want to conclude this deal Ariwa, I suggest you go to the bank and smash their faces in, because I am getting mad with them now, so I am likely to come out there and do it myself.

What we are dealing with is not a game, It is a serious business, and yet the bank use an email system that is a JOKE!

Sort it out now.

Pablo.

*******************************************************************************************************************************

Ariwa to Dr. Pablo :

HELLO MY GOOD FRIEND

I RECEIVED YOUR E-MAIL AND THE CONTENT WELL NOTED.ARE YOU DOUBTING ME THAT I SAY,I DID NOT SEE MR T IN THE POLICE HEAD QUARTERS,THAT SHOWS TO ME THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CONFIDENCE IN ME,SO I AM TOTALLY CONFUSED.

NOW,WHAT IS THE LATEST SITUATION?

BEST REGARDS

BARRISTER ARIWA

*******************************************************************************************************************************

[At this point, I decide to liven things up as it's getting a little boring. See how many Kylie tracks you can spot!]

Doubting you? Well unless the Police Headquarters donít know who Mr. T is, then I canít understand why they are not telling you he is there.

He works for an organization called ĎThe A Teamí. You should ask if they have heard of Mr. T, or ĎThe A Teamí.

I do not know why they say he is not there. I am not doubting you, I am just saying that I donít know why they should say he is not there when he is.

 

Did you receive my email about the bank I sent you earlier? They are pissing me off to be honest. I send them several emails, and they all came back to me.

Why would a large bank use a free email account? I donít understand it, but Iím not happy about it as it is now causing problems with the transaction.

I am in Edinburgh for the week now, and there is a western union here, but I am not going to pay any money until the bank re confirm all the details with me about my account details for where they will eventually pay the funds, and how much the funds are, and the names I am paying by western union.

Without this information

I can do nothing. Nothing at all..

What do I have to do? To get the message through? How can I proveÖ

I wish they would just confide in me, because itís better the devil you know..

I suppose I should BE so lucky!

 

I think personally the bank are trying to con us both. I fear that they will take the money for themselves. You should go round there and give them a slap!

 

I think weíre close to the end though, Ariwa..

 

Cheers,

Pablo.

Dr. Pablo to Ariwa:

Thankyou for this Ariwa. Iím glad youíre working for me on this one. I am about to email the bank and finalise everything with them.

 

Have you had any news about Mr. T?

I just got a message from him, sent via the Police headquarters.

He is not happy being locked up. He said ĎI want to run. I want to hide. I want to break down these walls that keep me insideí.

And you know when this message was originally sent? Sunday, bloody Sunday. And I only get it now!

The trouble is I still havenít found what Iím looking for. I sent a message back to him saying that the deal would go ahead with or without you, even if it takes until New Yearís day.

I suppose when he is deported, we will have a sort of homecoming for him, but I doubt it.

 

I will keep you informed,

 

Pablo.

Yes, I got your message, and the details are correct.

I will go to the Western Union office either today or tomorrow, so it will be no problem. I am looking forward to concluding this transaction. Perhaps one day we will be more than just passing strangers, when the deal is concluded. It has taken so long to conclude, I must admit that I have often been dancing with tears in my eyes, but there is no turning back. I am alive, and although I am a man of two worlds it is only one small day for me.

I will try and send the form later today, but for now I'm back in the deserts of Scotland. I'm afraid that these mist covered mountains, are a home for me now. But my home is the lowlands, and always shall be, but it never rains.

The offer of money for nothing from my new brothers in arms is something that I will be completing later, so don't worry. I will send the form via the Internet on the telegraph road. It's just a shame that you are so far away from me, or I could complete the transaction in person. Anyway, enough of the walk of life for now, so I'm going to ride across the river.

[It's becoming a real challenge to me now! I wonder when I'll get bored of the song theme..]

 

Dr. Pablo to Ariwa:

 

Ah.. This would make sense now. Perhaps he has indeed gone to another Police Headquarters. This would indeed be why you cannot find him, so I am sorry if you have wasted any of your time. I did not realize there was more than one place he may have gone. I apologize. I believe he is being deported tomorrow anyway, so it is too late to help him.

Never mind. It is his fault. I only told him to recover the money from Miss Ing, not to kill her, so he will have to pay for his own actions.

 

I guess he will end up just being another brick in the wall, living on the dark side of the moon. If he were to speak to me, I would point out to him that he must have brain damage and he would be better on the run. He is too obsessed by money. Although in time, he will be part of the great gig in the sky.

One of these days when he is not so fearless, he will run like hell. For now he just has the trial to look forward to. But in the meantime, the show must go on.

 

I have emailed the bank, so all is in hand.

 

Regards,

Pablo.

*******************************************************************************************************************************

[Thus ends my baiting for this time! Not bad for a first one ]

 

Dr. Pablo to Ariwa:

Sorry everyone, but there is no money, because there is no bank, and there is no $10 million or whatever. Do I doubt you on this deal? Yes, of course I do. This is a 419 scam, and you know it so please don't insult my intelligence by keeping up the pretence that you are a bank and a lawyer.

Banks to not use free home email accounts, and they would certainly not deal on a transaction like this purely over email. And you would never send a payment to a bank by Western Union!

It saddens me that you have decided to make your money by scamming westerners, believing that we are all stupid and greedy, and will fall for one of these 'get rich quick' schemes. That is why I consider it my duty to waste the time of people like you, so that you cannot scam other people.

Don't be offended by this, as it is not personal, just as you trying to scam money from me is not a personal thing. Perhaps to you, I am just another mugu, but I'm afraid I am not.

Ariwa, I'm sure you have suspected me many times of scambaiting you, but for some reason you chose to continue and waste your time. I tried to give you as many clues as possible, but you did not take them.

Mr T is actually a television star of an American television show called 'The A Team'. Miss Ing was actually a false person I made up myself, and the picture I sent you on the 'newspaper' was actually a picture of a British actress. She was not murdered, as she never existed.

Also, for fun, in the last 5 or so emails I have sent you, I have been including popular song titles, but again, you did not spot this.

And sorry if you waited for 5 hours in the Airport, but I suspect you didn't. If you did though, that is quite amusing.

Well, all that remains to say is 'TRUST PABLO'!! and I hope that this will perhaps serve as a lesson to you. We are not stupid in the west, and we are not so easily conned out of our money that we have earned. It is sad that there are problems in your country, and that you feel you must make money in this way, but it is wrong, and you should stop this. The next person that you try to scam may be someone from the FBI or MI5. And then you will waste more that just time, you will waste your lives In Jail.

I don't know if I will hear from you again, so if I don't, then I wish you well.. As long as you STOP SCAMMING.

Pablo.

[And I've heard nothing more since, surprisingly!!]
