Basically a straight scambait, albeit a relatively complex one. Lasted for a month and a half. The twist was to introduce multiple victims and set up the backstories so that they'd meet and swap stories during the scam.

I got a decent amount of info for others to jerk this guy and his associates around with, which is why I'm publishing it.

The scambait and image files are available in PDF form from

REMOVED BY STARGATE

The audio files are nothing special, so I didn't bother to upload them. The mugu has a terrible accent and marbles in his mouth. Nearly impossible to understand.

Sorry Dude, but until we get to know you better, I'd rather not have our users downloading PDF's that could contain a "nasty".

Here's the raw text of the scambait, then. Not as good but whatever. If you want the images then post the pdf address.

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

Dramatis Personae:

Remond Dikpesi/Dr. James Bright/Barrister Luke Lin Otua/Mayor Chijioke: inside man/banker/lawyer/scammer (almost surely) played by the same 419er

I play all the other characters:

[X], me

Robert Weiler, wealthy pet supply magnate

Ramsey Clark, Weiler's lawyer

Paulina "Pauly" Shore, a young woman in NYC

Gilbert Gottfried, a chav (i.e., UK white trash) in London

Tom Green, a 419 scammer

NB: All the 419 mail comes from the same half of a Class C network in Enugu, Nigeria. No web server or any obvious contact info associated to it (too bad). Remond's phone number is a de facto toll line that's free to set up in the UK (Open Telecom) but costs callers 50p/min. Also, the grossly enlarged fonts used by "Dr. Bright" to convey account information have been omitted for the sake of readability. The rest of the formatting has been retained without modification unless otherwise specified. Some very minor reshuffling of the emails out of time sequence is also done to increase readability.

Attn:

I work as the Head of Fund Manager with one of the World Leading Investment & Fund Management Institution based in South Africa.I have an Investor under my portfolio with a closing balance of 18,947m as his first initial deposit. This Investor died two years ago leaving no WILL orAUTHORIZATION for re-transfer of his Investment and its proceeds to the INHERITOR.

I have personally carried out an Investigation on the subject matter thattakes me 9 months to finalize and was made to understand that the Family or Relatives of the Investor knows nothing about his Investment and nonehave any records of all his deposits and investment with us leaving anavenue for claiming of the said funds with its accrued interest on presentation of a trustworthy person that can stand as the INHERITOR to the deceased.

If you are interested, I can present you as the INHERITOR with proper documentation that will qualify you to have the funds claimed and on doing this, our establishment will not question the release of the funds to you as I will make sure that we comply with the laid down rules and laws of claiming the Investment of a deceased Investor in our Establishment. Our sharing ratio will be 60:40.Please contact me for more detail breakdown if interested.

Looking forward to hearing from you shortly.

Sincerely.

Mr.Remond Dikpesi.

Mr Dikpesi--Although I'm intrigued, I have a concern with your proposal, and I will put it bluntly: How can I trust you? If as you claim you are concealing such a substantial investment from the family of the decedent, then surely you don't deserve their trust. So why do you deserve mine? Can you send me some supporting documentation or (better) collateral to help me establish some confidence? Regards, [XX]

PS. Why are your sent-from and reply-to addresses different?

Mr Taja (or is it Dikpesi?)--I got two replies to my questions, identical except for the name you give in them--in the one I'm replying to, it's Eric Taja, and in the other it's Remond Dikpesi. Which of these is your nom de vol?

Once I can be confident who I'm dealing with, I will promise that I won't fuck you up. I've been trying to find "UAC Investment London" online, yet I haven't been able to. Can you direct me to a webpage that gives some background on your organization?

As a sign of good faith, I will reveal that I am a [profession redacted], and quite interested in your lucrative proposal. However, I am also risk averse and a bit new to all of this. I don't have any business or financial training and I ask for your patience as I come up to speed.

[Omitted email from a junk account...that apparently doesn't have a "Sent" folder that works...basically, I've handed the whole thing off anonymously to my alter ego "Robert Weiler", who owns a pet supply company and is hearing impaired (aw, no phone calls). Robert tells Remond his associate (no mention of XX, whose webmail account shows a different IP) wants Remond to generate a public key and use crypto...and gives the key for HD DVDs as his own public key. (Maybe a little highbrow...)]

Thanks for your urgent response to my email, since I can understand that you are a rightful person been directed by your associates I will explain to you on how it will start by claiming of the money by directing you to the Director of operations of the bank.

I am not suspect our communications at all, what I want to do is to be sure of the person I am dealing with, But now I am clear.

Please I don know that channel you directed me, I will suggest that we will use code by using 0021 in any of letters you will receive from and from you too, then any letter that is not carrying the code number 0011 will not be answered. Please let us use this idea.

Now you will send the below details to the Director of Operations for proper claiming of the fund, just follow my instructions. Remember to update me once you send the application.

This is the account detail:

5. LAST DAY OF OPERATION: 21st DEC 2000

Then the contact of the Director of Operations are as follows:

i. HIS NAME IS DR.JAMES BRIGHT

ii. HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS: [email protected]

Once you send the application to the Director of Operations I want you to get back to me and don't let them know that I am involved in this transaction for me to have grounds to be backing it up.

Best Regards,

Mr Remond Dikpesi.

This is the sketch of the mail you will send to the Director of Operations of Bank.

The Director Of Operations,
Standard Bank Of London England.

Dear Sir,

Mr Dikpesi: While you may not suspect any eavesdropping, experience has shown me that it is better to be safe than sorry. Before proceeding any further I must insist that you install and use RSA public key encryption. Experience has shown me the need for absolute secrecy in communications of a nature such as ours. Again, my RSA public key is 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0. If you wish to continue please generate a new RSA public key of your own and send it to me. After confirming the keys, we can proceed. Best, Robert

Please let's proceed on with the transaction because we are delaying this transaction, let me repeat myself I don't know how to register it even operate it, every body will not be perfectly expert, so bear with me.

I will be waiting for your continuation with the transaction no need for delay.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Robert Weiler.

Remond, I've found a way to do this that's relatively easy and offers at least some security, though not as much as I'd ordinarily like. Go to http://www.hushmail.com and sign up for an email account. I have just created one myself, with the address [email protected]. The Hushmail server will handle key generation and encryption automatically: you won't have to do anything other than sign up for an email account there.

As I said, I need to have at least a basic level of confidence that our future exchanges will not be subject to eavesdropping. Using Hushmail is the minimum level I can deal with (they are generally well regarded from a security standpoint). I will not reply to any more email you send to [email protected], but we can begin once you contact me at [email protected] USING A HUSHMAIL ADDRESS.

Best, Robert

Remond, I don't understand why this Dr Bright fellow cares which lawyer we use. In the US it is extremely unusual for a person to use a lawyer employed by the other party in a transaction. In fact I have never known of such a thing. If we do this I want to do it right, as I think you know by now.

I have no objection to Dr Bright using this Luke Lin fellow for his purposes, but I need to have my own lawyer involved as well. If you can talk some sense into Dr Bright then by all means do so, but bear in mind that I must be firm. When we have completed the
transaction I'm sure that you will be glad we did it this way. It will minimize our risks and it is after all a question of professional ethics.

I'm sure Dr Bright already knows all this, and I'm confident that he will accommodate us. I imagine that he is considering the very option I discussed above, of having two lawyers involved as a compromise. Let's give him a few more days to think it over and see what happens.

On another front, I may be in South Africa on business in a few months. Of course if that happens I would like to see you. I would be flying through Joburg en route to Cape Town. Can you recommend a good hotel in Cape Town?

Hope this finds you well. Keep the faith. Best, Robert

Best, Robert

PS--I just forgot for a moment that your institution is based in South Africa but you spend time in London. I think Star Alliance flights from JFK generally have Heathrow as their stopover point, so if I take South African instead of Emirates I can facilitate our
meeting either way. Anyways it's still a few months off and not certain yet. Best, Robert

Dear Robert,

Now I think what you mean is the Lawyer from the bank to Corresponding all documents to your Lawyers for confirmations, if it is so that is very good because I asked the Director of the bank and He said if it is in that way no problems but all what He know is that Mr.Luke Lin will be the one that will signing all the documents from there bank and sending it to your Lawyer.

So try to contact Mr. Luke Lin, please I know what you are writing on your mails about Risk but as long as I know it will not come from my side,or less from your side.

I am waiting for good news that you have contacted the Lawyer Mr.Luke Lin.

Best Regards,

Mr Lin: I am contacting you at the request of Dr Bright regarding a transaction for the account of Morris Thompson. I'm sure Dr Bright has given you the details so I will omit them here, but can fill you in if needed. My own attorney (Ramsey Clark, cc) will work with you. Please direct your future correspondence to him, but feel free to cc me or not as you wish.

My one request is that (as Mr Clark did) you sign up for, and use, an account at http://www.hushmail.com for this transaction. I do not want anyone to be able to intercept our communications.

Barrister--I'm a bit at a loss for your form of address. First of all, do you go by Luke Lin or Luke Otua?

Second, it's really quite presumptuous of you to ask for my certifications, given our respective circumstances in this transaction. I was strongly disinclined to comply with your request, and informed Mr. Weiler that this is highly irregular behavior. Nevertheless, at his urging I had my secretary make quick scans of a few of my basic certifications.

Thirdly, although Mr. Weiler has directed me to work with you, he has also made it clear (note the cc) that he has observed several irregularities in his interactions with you and Dr. Bright thus far. He is provisionally willing to ascribe these to linguistic and
cultural "impedance mismatches" as he calls it, but to put it bluntly: he is concerned. I trust, and certainly hope, that you will endeavor to alleviate his concerns about the reliability and demeanor of your enterprise. I can assure you that Mr. Weiler's tolerance for arrogance and incompetence is low, and that he will react poorly to further irregularities.

Fourthly, one such irregularity you should be aware of is your request that Mr. Weiler pay your fees out of pocket. He assures me that it is standard practice for bank transaction fees to be deducted from accounts rather than paid separately, and indeed this is my own experience as well. Insofar as you are working on behalf of the bank, it stands to reason that your fees could, and probably should, be deducted from the transfer. I am willing to entertain your explanation for this anomalous protocol on Mr. Weiler's behalf, but like him my tolerance for unprofessional behavior is low.

Finally, I expect to see satisfactory scans of your certifications before proceeding any further. Once this is done, we can address the other concerns Mr. Weiler has transmitted to me.

Remond: Fantastic. My lawyer is a little worried about this Luke fellow (I told him to bcc you on his response) but this is great news.

I'll look forward to meeting you in Joburg before long...looks like early October now, but it actually might move forward depending on what our supplier in Cape Town does with their logistics chain. If you can recommend a good hotel for my stay there or a night in Joburg I'd appreciate it. I'll keep you posted on the itinerary once it firms up.

Also I've recently switched my company's mobile phone provider and as a result have several (not new, but gently used) surplus phones that we aren't using anymore and that I'll be able to bring for you to give to friends and colleagues if you like. If you're married or attached, I can bring some kind of souvenir for your significant other as well (in which case just let me know what she'd enjoy).

See you soon.

Best, Robert

Barrister Ramsey Clark,

I will start by thanking you for your documents which you sent to me, but what I requested from you is only call to bar of course that is what I am sending to you.I have never asked for your whole documents.
About my name are as follows Luke is my fist name, Otua is my middle name while Lin is surname.

That is real that Mr. Weiler hac been in contact with Dr.James Bright.I am very happy that you know your client very well, for that you know more than him, you have to explain to him that the money in the bank was in dormant account that needs to activated first.

You fully awear that professional fees can not be deducted from the total sum for transfer, you better explain all this thing to him as a learned friend.

Yours Truly,

Barrister Luke O.

[Call to bar "certificate" attached]

Remond,

Clark just forwarded me a message from Lin and we had a little conversation. As you probably recall, Clark wanted to see Lin's professional certifcations as a matter of routine.

The "certificate" Lin produced is attached. It's clearly a forgery, and a lazy one at that. I don't see how I can deal with Lin now. After seeing this behavior, do you think Dr. Bright can still be legitimate? I can't deal with Lin, but I hold out some hope for our
transaction's success.

Here is what I think is really going on. I KNOW Lin isn't a lawyer now, and suspect that he is a placeholder for some government official who is demanding a bribe to make this thing go or something like that. I'm not averse to that sort of thing, and I know how these things work. I can understand that a man in Bright's (presumed) position would want to keep this sort of thing private and even concoct a cover story. But I won't deal with Lin anymore after this debacle, and I need some advice about how you think I
should deal with Bright. (Or should we walk away from this? I don't see how we have anything to lose by continuing, though.)

My gut instinct is to try to get Bright to come clean and tell me what REALLY needs to be done on his end as well as ours, and not try to pass off a corrupt government employee (or whatever Lin is) as a lawyer. I feel like I have to assume Bright can be reasoned with, but I don't trust him anymore. And I need some kind of actual
evidence (not just claims) that he is for real before continuing.

What do you think I should do?

Best, Robert

Dear Robert Weiler,

I have gone through your last mail with the content well understood.I will want you to understand the situation here as regards the subject matter. One thing you should know is this, remember this is a deal that needs confidentiality at every level and as such, should be kept confidential. Mr Bright with his position here will not like to present him self to the deal proper, he will always want to protect his job as well thereby using a middle man who will be representing him.

However, what they normally do is to get a mediator or an agent who's duty is to make sure the deal is done without their direct involvement, i guess that is what is seen happening here. In my own opinion, i will request you contact Mr.Bright and get his own side of the issue. But on my own advice, i will strongly advice that this is a deal and we will have to adhere to what Bright will have to say regarding the matter. On a second thought, i will advice on my own part to forget about your Counsel because Mr. Bright will not want to work with him due to his position in the bank, the deal will be between me and you and i believe that is the only way Mr. Bright will accept this plans. Please think about it and get back to me.

Mr. Bright will be compensated at the end of the deal. All we will do is to agree between ourselves what his percentage/compensation will be at the end of the deal when the funds must have been confirmed in your account. Please go ahead and contact Mr. Bright immediately.




My sincerly Regards,

Mr. Remond Dikpesi.

Dr Bright--

After receiving a badly forged certificate from Mr Lin (I can produce it if you like) and consulting with my lawyer and associates, I have concluded that we will no longer deal with Lin.

Instead, we will deal either with you directly, or with a person you designate: BUT IN NO INSTANCE SHALL WE DEAL WITH MORE THAN ONE SUCH PERSON, INCLUDING YOURSELF. Therefore if you designate another person to carry out this transaction and we find him to be deceitful or otherwise unsuitable, then I WILL call off the transaction and walk away.

It is of course up to you to choose whether to carry the deal out yourself or to select an agent for the purpose, but in either event WE WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY FURTHER IRREGULARITIES. If you are not absolutely certain that you can designate an agent who will conduct matters straightforwardly and in a manner worthy of our trust, then
I suggest that you deal with us directly.

Furthermore, the forgery incident with Mr Lin--whom YOU referred us to--has convinced us that a demonstration of good faith is required on your part in order for the deal to move forward. I will come back to this point in a moment.

As far as the transaction itself, we will need you to be completely straightforward and truthful with us about what needs to be done, both on our end and yours, in order to finalize everything. I am personally very eager to conclude this deal in an efficient and
timely fashion, but I want to be careful, particularly in light of recent events.

Now back to the demonstration of good faith. We require the following before proceeding any further:

1. A suitable scan of your passport. If you wish to conceal your passport number or date of birth for security reasons that is acceptable, but no further concealment is permissible.
2. A genuine picture (NOT AN IDENTIFICATION CARD) of you that clearly and undeniably indicates that you are indeed affiliated with the Standard Bank. For example, a picture beside a bank vault door, or with a large sum of money would suffice. Alternatively, a picture of you along with a suitable scan of your bank
identification card should suffice. To ensure that the picture is current, we require you to hold a sign that clearly reads "THERMINOLOGY" (a random word my circle and I agreed upon).

Falsified or modified scans/pictures will NOT be accepted and will result in IMMEDIATE cancellation of the transaction. I will call off the deal unless you produce a suitable demonstration along the lines above. I will NOT tolerate any attempts to provide alternative evidence, whatever its nature or form, if you do not also include 1. and 2. above. I will NOT tolerate any attempts to proceed before you produce this evidence.

Now to be fair, and as a sign of my own good faith, I am including a scan of my passport, with my personal data obscured and the image itself modified in such a way as to prevent misuse if you are not who or what you claim to be. I am also including two other pictures of myself to corroborate the passport.

I truly hope we can continue this deal, but it is in your hands now.

Robert Weiler

I HAVE RECEIVED YOUR EMAIL REGARIDNG YOUR DEALING WITH THE ATTORNEY WHICH YOU HAVE CLEARLY STATED THAT HIS DOCUMENTS BADLY FORGED. WELL MR LIN HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE SO CALLED FORGED DOCUMENT TO WORK WITH OTHER CLIENT'S OF HIS AND NON HAS EVER COMPLAINED ABOUT IT. HOWEVER, SINCE YOU HAVE INDICATED TO SUSPEND FURTHER DEALINGS WITH HIM, I GUESS THAT SHOULD NOT POSE ANY TREAT AS LONG AS THIS TRANSACTION IS CONCERNED.

ON THE CONTRARY, I WILL STRONG ADVICE YOU COME DOWN HERE SO WE CAN MEET FACE TO FACE, THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE CONVICTION OF WHOM YOU ARE DEALING WITH BECAUSE I CAN ONLY SEND TO YOU MY WORK ID AS A BANKER HERE IN MY COUNTRY.

I will be waiting for your good news on what He replied you.

What bank? You use a yahoo address and provide no other contact information. I haven't seen any evidence that you actually work for a bank. For all I know you are trying to fool me somehow. After all I have seen evidence that you are allied with incompetent forgers. This is the last email you'll get from me until you supply the evidence I require. Don't bother sending anything else.

If I really have money in your "bank" then I'll get it once you're gone. I'm in no hurry, I've got plenty of money. I can wait decades.

Doctor Bright, I think I can take a trip to London without too much trouble since I live in New York. (It's high time too since I haven't been there in over a year!) I'd like to get there on a Thursday night, conduct our business on Friday, and have the weekend to go shopping in Hatton Garden and Knightsbridge with my money! If we can conduct this business on Friday the 14th or any later Friday that would be best as I can plan for travel then. Let me know if the 14th will work, or if not which Friday would. Where are you in London? Thanks, Pauly

Remond, I got a firm set of travel dates this morning and had to spend quite a bit of time this afternoon trying to arrange a decent flight (with a little less success than I had hoped for, but I'll get there. I'm spending a day near JFK to rest each way). I'll see you on my way back, arriving in Joburg on the 22nd and leaving for JFK on the 25th. I've attached a PDF of my itinerary. See you soon.
Robert

[Now, something to put Remond on his back foot and distract him from the itinerary for the moment. As I sent this I received a bounce on the last email--Remond can't clean out his inbox (it only has 2MB). So I resent the earlier message without an attachment, hoping it'll fit. It bounces too. Whatever. I don't know if it got delivered and it doesn't really matter as long as he doesn't get suspicious about the flight coincidence with Paulina.]

Remond, something's been troubling me for a while and I only just put my finger on it.

Why don't you think Bright is a total fraud after the pathetic stunt Lin pulled? Have you seen his offices? Are you being completely open with me? The reason I ask is that a more plausible but also disturbing explanation for recent events has occurred to me.

I'm convinced that Bright is a total fraud, yet apparently you're not (though we clearly agree that he isn't completely honest, since after all we were going to cut him in on our deal). And I don't know him, while you do. I can't easily reconcile these two pieces of information. The simplest way out that I can think of is to keep the obvious fact--namely, that you know Bright--and discard the supposition that you think that Bright isn't a fraud.

If my reasoning is wrong, please explain why.

If it's correct, please explain why you're covering for Bright, and what he really is, and how you know him. I have some ideas but I'll be interested to see how they compare to the reality.

I need to resolve this issue so that I can pack properly for my trip.

OK, I don't have that kind of money yet (and what's the bloody exchange rate anyways?). I can scrape up 5000 or so, but that's all anytime soon. I don't mind telling you this bloke's a bit of a chav.

But and so my mate Taylor St. Clair came up with a pretty fucking flash idea. He says to me, how about I transfer part of the funds with the 5K, and then Bob's your uncle and I'll use them funds to transfer the rest? Old Taylor's smart like a computer, eh, guvnor?

Plus but too I've never done a wire transfer before. Can I go to a normal bank in London for that shite or is it something more complicated like I've got to go to the City, chug the pickle and whatnot? You've gotta be a mate and give a chap a bit of guidance here. I'm a bit of a newcomer and all that.

Hey mate course I'm gonna complete the balance after, why the fuck would I leave any money there? I'm not some kind of City investor.

Look here now, my good chum Taylor did his sums twice like and he says to me, he says Look Gilbert 0.2% of the bill is $150.68, so instead of fucking around with any more why not just wire that amount in pounds sterling it'll be less than a hundred quid however much it turns out to be, then receive the $75K and use that money to get the whole thing? He says it's almost 38 million dollars which I don't know the exchange rate but it's a bloody lotta quid. Taylor's got lots of fucking brilliant schemes. I'll throw in five quid on the top to make sure it's enough.

So OK I guess I will be doing this and sending over $150.68 first, then the rest later for them several tens of millions. Don't worry Doc as I got all that shite you sent the first time. I'll wire that money on Thursday since I got what you might call a prior engagement with a real class skag. She's a mite rough on the eyes but let me tell you that a stinkfinger might not sound like your cup of tea but just you try this lass for size. Anyways enough of the small talk expect the transfer Friday at the latest. Cheers mate.

Doctor Bright, it's not at all easy for me to call internationally now, since as I told you my phone is broken and I'm waiting to get a replacement at the end of my service contract this month. If instead Mr. Allison wants to leave me a voicemail or email that would be splendid and of course I would be more than happy to coordinate things with him.

I can bring the traveler's checks without any trouble and cash them once I'm in the UK. It will take me a few days to do this as I'm having to liquidate part of my 401 plan to get the last $6K of the roughly $14K total.

See you soon. Pauly

[Pauly's pictures are from a viral web ad that made the rounds on teh Digg: some chick "lost" her camera and it had these and some rather spicier pics on it which were all posted to the web by the "finder". The "loss" was reported in the Daily Mail, so our presumptive tosser in the UK may well have seen her...after all, I doubt he reads the Times or the Guardian. Still, the pics I used weren't very similar to the ones in the Daily Mail article, so it will almost certainly go unnoticed. (BTW, who can even count the layers of fakery at this point?) Also, the new US passport design was surprisingly easy to fudge quickly in Photoshop (though it's not as good a fake as Weiler's), but I just sent a cropped pic instead of the whole thing to keep the 419er from misusing it.]

I can get around London fine by myself, it's not necessary to have someone else arrange things for me (and to prove it, I am going to make my own reservation for the Royal Garden, which I know and like).

First of all, I'm more than a little upset Thomas would accidentally send you an email intended for me. I will expect him to take me to dinner to make up for it!

Everything I sent you is correct. The account information, the photos, everything (here's two more!). And I'm traveling tomorrow because I don't want to change my ticket and I am going to have fun in London no matter what.

But Mr. Green was rather emphatic that I should conduct the transfer with him instead of you. He made a convincing case and your behavior has only reinforced it. If you want to give him a call then go right ahead, you already have his number. I've told you several times that it's very difficult for me to make calls myself until month's end, yet you kept pressuring me and creeping me out about that and my passport. Mr. Green, on the other hand, is quite nice and assures me that he can transfer the money himself. I don't know how you two know each other or why you don't like him and frankly I don't care.

If you want to meet on Friday then I'll be happy to see you, but you need to tell me where and when. I already have a breakfast appointment with Mr. Green that he says will run until 1100 or so. I'll be able to check my email until early Friday morning and after that I intend to go shopping and head back to New York.

Dr. Bright, I'm in London now staying with an old friend.

Actually FYI Tom has been very good about using my voicemail (we had a rather nice chat over the phone at Heathrow; he's really a charming fellow) and I'm confident that he can handle the transaction.

You might also be interested to know that I met another former client of yours on the flight from New York (it's a small world!). He was quite adamant that you were not to be trusted under any circumstances, which is really too bad: I'd planned to ask you to a late lunch tomorrow so there wouldn't be any hard feelings. I'm afraid however that after hearing this man's all-too-credible stories about you and your lawyer associate there's simply no way I can meet with you at all. In fact I gave this man Tom's contact information and suggested that the two of them get in touch.

So: sorry old chap, but as they say here in London, maybe next time you'll chug the pickle. Pauly

I met a very pretty young woman who was on the same flight from JFK
to Heathrow and we had a very interesting chat. I won't go into
detail because I want to hear your version first. I hope you know

Bob, in reference to our conversation I thought you
should see this email exchange. Talk to Tom if you
haven't yet: he seems to know quite a bit about it all
and is really very personable.

Anyways, thankfully my little vacation wasn't spoiled,

interested to know what course of action you decide to
follow. Do try to stop by during your return layover
in New York and tell me all about it. Cheers, Pauly
