I wrote and told them my tale of woe. I didn't lose any money, but the consignmet that was to be deliverd, never arrived.



Quote:
Dear Mr David,

I have not lost anything up to this point except the failure of the delivery of a consignment. A diplomat was at the LA International Airport with a consignment. Due to his faulty cell phone, he did not acknowledge the tag fee and he never picked it up, or delivered my consignment. He has my phone number and has not called me back from his phone. Can you help me?

As mentioned in my last email, this is to be on a contingency basis only with payment upon recovery.



I tease him with the smell of money. My gold mine is to be restarted.

Quote:
Dear Mr David,

I thought you would like a few pictures of the dredge restoration at the gold mine. As you can see the structure is being restored. The equipment inside needs considerable restoration before it becomes operational again.. I took these pictures just a couple weeks ago. I'll be back to the mine this weekend to check on the progress.


I included some photos of some mine dredge equipmet that was shut down in the 1950's and is now a museum, so some stuff has a recent paint job.

Ah, yes, the point to contact the bank is initiated.

Quote:
Dear Mr. ****

How are you doing today? i hope you are fine, sir thank once more for your attention and responding me as quick as possible, i also want to thanks you for those picture and the others information's about.

Sir i have contacted the bank this morning and i also instruct the bank to contact you and give you all the necessary details needed to enable them start the transfer of your fund across to your receiver bank in any part of the world, i believe you will receive a notification from the Eco bank Tema main branch Accra before end of the day and please kindly forward every information you may receive from the bank in future to my notice for proper verification, before advising you what to do, please kindly reply with your telephone number for easy communications.



I am looking forward to hear from you with every information you may receive from Africa.

Regard.

Barr. David A Hesse


A google search found the real bank branch. Included are the real bank email, phone, fax, etc. Later I get an email from the bank. The contact info is different.. Not even the same area code.

I noted in the time zone they wrote at about midnight their time. I give a hint of trouble brewing for impostors.. Security is a good thing, right? I give them my GV phone number.



Quote:
Do you know it is almost midnight? Go home. I can't have you sleeping at your desk in the morning.

Due to the nature of my business, I rarely carry my cell, so calls and text messages are collected. My business is conducted by 2 way radio as cell service is very poor in the mountains. Email is best except for bank details which are best sent along secure channels.

Tech
Cell (541) Snip

Home (360) Snip


On the subsequent phone call, I mixed him with another bait with a diplomat at the airport with a MJ phone. He called me with a MJ phone so I assumed at first it was my diplomat with a consignment. Oops.. Embarassed

I follow up with the bank and proudly let him know I took care with security.

Quote:
Mr David Hesse,

Thank you for the lovely conversation. Sorry about the confusion about LAX airport. Between your late night email and a shipper arriving at midnight here, I got the two of you mixed up.

I sent the bank a fax as that is much more secure than email. Thank you for helping me find the right branch online to find the fax number. I started a file on this to keep it separate from my other correspondence.

I sent the fax to Dr. Koffi Addo to open an account in my name. I should hear back from him tomorrow.

Branch area: Tema

Again thanks for your help.



No reply. Is suspect this one is done.

I went ahead and opened an account. It was much simpler to do online. Since I had some trouble with the branch name and the new address, it felt safer to simply use the forms online and fax them in.

It is interesting that the verified location of the main branch in Tema has moved..
Remember the real verified location was at this address;
Branch area: Tema
Branch: Tema Main
Address: Ground floor, Meridian Plaza, Community 1

I have taken to opportunity to open the account at ecobank. The online form was not difficult to obtain, fill out and fax back. Thank you for pointing me to the Deed of Indemnity Form (Compulsory). You did not mention that I needed that too, but it is compulsory for a personal account. That is also completed and faxed back. If you need a colour photo for the form instead of simply the fax, I can mail you a copy of my passport photo.

Now that I have an account, what is needed next?

I am looking forward to seeing this completed at the soonest.

Me


I'll see if this ends here.
