Micheal Lesolle
Stanbic Bank Botswana,

Plot 50672,Fairground

Email: [email protected]

Dear Sir/ madam,

I am Michael Lesolle, with the Stanbic Bank Botswana.This is an urgent
and very confidential business proposition.

On June 6, 2001,a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the Botswana
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, Mr.Anthony Stones made a numbered time
(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at Twenty-six Million,
five hundred thousand Dollars in my branch.

Upon maturity,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address
but got no reply. After a month,we sent a reminder and finally we
discovered from his contract employers, the National Pe! troleum
Corporation that Mr.Anthony Stones died in an automobile accident.

On further investigation,I found out that he died without making a
WILL,and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Anthony
Stones did not declare any kin or relations in all his official
documents,including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum
has carefully been fixed in my bank for safekeeping.

No one will ever come forward to claim it.According to Botswana Law, at
the expiration of five years, the money will revert to the ownership
of the Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a Foreigner to
stand in as the owner of the money which was fixed deposited in my bank.
I am writing you because I cannot operate a foreign account due to the
conditions of my employment.

The money will be moved out for ! us to share in the ratio of 80% for and
20% for you.The paperwork for this transaction will be done by my
Attorney and i am already taking care of this.

If you are interested, please reply immediately via my email address and
Upon your response,I shall then provide you with more details that will
help you understand the transaction.

Be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both
of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in real
estate within your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my email Above.{[email protected]}

Thanks and my regards.

Michael Lesolle.
Michael, let me introduce myself. I am Jack Tripper, successful chef & owner of several of Jack's Bistro restaurants in the LA/Santa Monica area. I am not married although I have 2 room mates and we get along together quite well. I plan on moving out someday but with my friendly landlords, the Ropers, I feel happy right here. Since your email came to me as a surprise, won't you tell me about yourself? Here is a fairly recent picture of me

Dear Jack,

How are you doing today? I have requested fro your phone number to enable us
discuss in details over the phone regarding this transaction and possible
investments opportunities on your country.

Endeavour to send it immediatly you receive this mail so that i can call you
later today.I would send the private bank's contact address as soon as i hear
from you.
God bless and my regards to your family.

Michael, hello again. Nice to hear back from you. At the moment I am afraid I cannot give you my phone number because just recently, it was hacked by a criminal and my private phone numbers were compromised, kind of like the way Paris Hilton's phone was. So lets use email for the time being, I do all of my bistro ordering via email and my room-mates Janet & Chrissy also help out although Chrissy is lacking in the brains dept. I also like to meet informally at the Regal Beagle over a drink to discuss business and about the new restaurant I plan on opening in August. I could sure use the money for this venture! You are more than welcome to invest in my business.

Dear Jack,

> How are you doing today?I have received a response from the referral sent to the private bank on your behalf hence i want you to write them immediately you get this mail requesting for their account opening package.
> Their contact address is: [email protected]
> You can simply write them as follows:
> I would like to set up account to do business through your institution. Please provide me with necessary information.
> Do respond back as soon as possible.
> Yours Faithfully,
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------
> The private bank requires that an account must be activated with an opening balance by you the holder before it can be fully functional or used for further business transactions.This is their modus operandi I have decided to use them because they are not listed publicly and are very discrete.
> You are to await their account opening details and instructions which should state all that is required to have an account activated with them.Endeavour to adhere to these instructions to enable us conclude immediately.
> It is important that you keep this transaction strictly to your chest alone to protect my status as a high official of my bank.I would do my part of transferring the funds to your account soon after you have complied with the directives of the private bank.
> Endeavour to update me as soon as your hear from bank so i can advice you on how best to conclude with them if need be.
> God bless and my regards to Chrissy and Janet.
> Micheal.

Michael, nice to hear back from you. I will do as you instructed and fire off an email promptly and CC you in on it. I have yet to put a face to your name as would give me a chance to know you a little better even though we have not met. I was distracted just yesterday from my cooking when I found out that my friend Larry, who is a used car dealer, tried to put the moves on my roommates. He lives in the same apartment building. But anyhow, here is a photo of me and my roommates , Janet & Chrissy, and our Landlords, who live downstairs.

Best –Jack Tripper

Michael, I do not believe it costs $5000 to open a bank account. Tell you what, I will open an account at a bank next door to the Regal Beagle, my new Landlord, Mr. Furley has an account there and he says the customer service is very good. And speaking of the Regal Beagle, here is a recent photo of me there, having a drink.
After I open the account, is there anything you'll need?
Thank you Jack Tripper

Dear Jack,

How are you doing today? I guess you must have received my previous email.Do
let me know asap if you are out of this transaction or not.

God bless and hope to hear from you oon.


Michael, I am very much in this transaction. Like I told you before, I am opening up another Bistro and need the money from “our” transaction to help finance it. My kitchen worker, Felipe, is demanding a raise and better health insurance from me and Janet lost her job at the flower shop to some some hussey that her boss has taken a liking to. So yes, I am serious about this proposal but can I have my lawyer look into it as well to give me personal advice?

Sincerely -Jack Tripper

You think this Mugu would be interested in a visit to the apartment and get mixed up into a crazy sitcom misunderstanding like in every episode?

I dont think you have moved him off his script yet, but the main thing is that you are having some fun and also maybe wasting his time a bit.
