One day I got a similar fine offer when I was bored at work and the
following interchange ensued (somewhat censured for public consumption):
Mr. Bob .T. LAMAR
London - England
6th December, 2001.
This letter may come as a surprise because we have not met but was borne
out of my sincere desire to establish a business/mutual
relationship with you. I got your contact through the international
trade and commerce chamber (ITCC) in London.
My name is Mr. Bob .T. Lamar, the son of Chief Williams. T. Lamar(the
former financial director of the Sierra- Leone national
mining corporation) who was killed and mutilated by the military junta
led by Major, Paul Koroma after over-throwing the elected
government of President Tijan Kabba. Though, I do not know to what
extent you are familiar with events and disturbances in
Sierra-Leone but it has a consistent features in the CNN, BBC news
bulletins. The pressure of war drove the rest of our family out
of Sierra-Leone into exile in England where we have been living under
political asylum for 3 years.
Sadly, my mother died of cancer 3 months ago and was buried in London.
Prior to her death, she handed me over a certificate meant
for a secret deposit, which my father made in a security company in
Madrid - Spain. The deposit which is worth $15,000.000 (Fifteen
Million U.S. Dollars) was money paid to the mining corporation under him
by its overseas customers in the heat of the conflict. He
made the deposit in his name with the hope of converting it to his
personal use at the end of the war but was killed when the
conflict intensified as a result of his opposition to the rebel forces.
I have contacted the Security Company to confirm the
deposit and establish ownership.
Due to the death of my mother and the continued hostility in
Sierra-Leone, I have decided to solicit for the assistance of an
honest and trustworthy person or company that will assist in the
business re-investment of the money. I cannot do it alone due to
my present social status and total ignorance of the business world. You
will be given a negotiable percentage of the money at the
end of the transaction.
If you are honest, trustworthy and interested in the above proposal,
contact me immediately through the numbers indicated above
for more details. You must maintain absolute confidentiality to ensure
success. Please, indicate your personal Tel./Fax nos. when
replying by fax. For security reasons, you can contact me either by fax
or through my secured email address as indicated above.
Mr. Bob Lamar.
Dear Mr. Lamar:
It is with great sadness that I read your letter concerning the death of
yøur corrupt father and housewife mother.
I would be most interested in helping backward criminals such as
in order to gain access to the $15 million your father stole from the
Mining Corporation in Sierra Leone. I will do my very best to educate
you speedily as to
the manner in which the business world works. Although I would
imagine you are not
well-educated, I do have patience and have had some experience in
teaching retarded children
so I am well-prepared for the task at hand.
To that effect, I would like a minimum 75% of the entire proceeds PLUS
the sexual services of a beautiful Sierra Leonian woman who will
pleasure both me
and my wife. These terms are non-negotiable.
Mr. Lamar, I look forward to hearing from you. Although my only
contact to date with Africa has been in the form of National
Geographics (I often
masturbated to pictures of naked African women as a youth), I am fully
assist individuals such as yourself in order to facilitate mutual
it was with good intention that i wrote to you.
However,since you are not interested i will ask you to
go **** your self, your mother and keep on ****ing
your harlot wife in the *** and pass her over to me
and i will **** her the way she will never forget
because you both are full of ****!
Dear Mr. Lamar:
I am quite perplexed by your heated response to my recent letter. I
can only surmise that
your hostility is a delayed reaction to the untimely deaths of your
scamster father and
bimbo mother; as such, I already have forgiven your outburst and am
ready to proceed with
the deal you proposed.
Let me emphasize that I responded to you with a counteroffer and did so
with only the best intentions. Frankly, I was quite delighted to
receive a letter from a backward person such as yourself as I have had
no contact to date with any Africans as patently ignorant as you, prior
to your unexpected correspondence. However, your mental deficiencies
can be overcome provided you strictly follow my directions in the
execution of this entire deal.
I continue to be most interested in your proposal to transfer the
stolen by your most criminal father from the Sierra Leonian Mining
Corporation into another
However, no amount of negotiating on your part will change my conditions
for this entire deal:
I want no less than 95% of the entire proceeds PLUS several attractive
Sierra Leonian women
who will pleasure both me and my wife. I will provide you ample time
to round up the
Sierra Leonian bimbos as I only wish to be fair in this entire matter.
Mr. Lamar, I look forward to hearing from you. Together we can make
this entire venture
succeed. We will reap the benefits: I will end up with a great deal
of money and sexual
satisfaction while you will earn yourself an education in high finance
in such matters as how
to open up a bank account; how to write checks properly; how to make a
bank deposit; how
to discern the difference between large bank notes and small ones; and
how to add up
change received from a bank teller.
Correction: In the thread 'Canada Faces Disruption of Edible Tuber
Supply', I recently posted
'2.5 million Canadians live in Toronto, on taro root alone'.
This should have read
'2.5 million Canadians live in Toronto, Ontario, alone'.
I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
