I have the immediate purchase for the above item and specification. I will like to know the total cost value for this item and shipment to london. Kindly forward to me the contact name and address for immediate payment. I really look forward to read from you soon.

Not yet knowing this was a scam, I checked shipping prices NYC to London.

Hi,
This pump was rebuilt and never put into service.
Ready to ship, it weighs approximately 1200 lbs.
We have never shipped trans-Atlantic freight.
Is marine freight via land-sea container acceptable?
Where would you receive the pump?
We would be happy to ship this pump to you.
Thank you,

In the next email he picked a price and is sending money.

You will be receiving payment from me by next week, kindly mail me immediately you got my payment. I sent out united state money order that can be cashed in your bank or any other bank in the united state. the total amount sent is $6650USD. I hope to hear/read from you soon. Cheers!

A letter with a California return address arrives from Adam containing
US postal money orders totaling $6650.00. Poor quality counterfeits.
I gave them to the US Postal inspector.
And I reply

Hi Adam,
I received your money orders today.
Ill get the pump ready tomorrow and schedule a pickup.
I still need name and phone information for the receiving agent at London for the shipper.
Sea time will be about three weeks and I will advise you as to arrival times as soon as I know.
Thanks again,
Mark

I am Adam Grant Jr. I write to request the contact of Mark Lima. I used to contact him on my former e-mail, though i can not retrief again. I will like him to contact me on this mail now. thank you
Adam Grant Jr

Then
i can't possibly understand why you refused to repl my mail, and also why you didnot contact me immediately you got my payment. please repl me asap ou got this mail and also send your phone number, i'll sure contact you. thank you

I get picture now and start jerking Adams chain.

Hi Adam,
Thank you for your payment.
It will cover all costs except for around $100.00 for drop off service and $15.00 per day storage fees
which my boss says he will cover. Imagine that!
I tried many times to contact you but your email address did not work.
Now I have your new address.
You have my phone number.
My secretary told me that you may have called, but got cut off.
I am very busy and rarely in the office.
My company doesnt use cell phones and the owner doesnt allow overseas calls either.
Hes a really cheap bastard, but he is honest and pays me well.
Email is the best way to contact me. That way I dont get in trouble with the CB.
Our business is usually all conducted in the US so we rarely deal with international shipping, customs etc.
I have your pump crated, and in our shipping agents warehouse.
Adam, I need contact and shipping directions.
Please email me ASAP with that information.
I will be out of the office for a couple of days screening hookers in Vegas for a trade show
but be assured I will be waiting for your shipping instructions.
If the pump stays in storage too long the owner will get really pissy.
You would think that 15.00/day would get his children thrown out of the private academy that they attend.
Best regards,
Mark

The scam shows itself.
Mark,
Thank you for your responce, i was about to contact my solicitor about our transaction. when we do not read/receive from you, we had decided to get another pump in belgium, and we had taken the delivery last week. anyway, i will like you to mail me as regards your refund policy. and advice me on my ballance immediately. Please send my refund to my secretary immediately. You may proceed to any western union location around you and send the refund to my secretary today. I'm presently in australia. The details of the receiver (my secretary) is bellow;

NAME; ADEBANWO OLUKAYODE

CITY; LONDON
COUNTRY; UNITED KINGDOM
After sending the money to the details above, send the following information to my email and also to my secretary for office documentation.
MTCN NUMBER;
SENDERS NAME;
SENDERS ADDRESS;
AMOUNT SENT IN DOLLARS;
A SCANED COPY OF THE RECEIPT; Given to you at the western union location.
I look very forward to have this today. The money in your hand is really affecting our quaterly account review. We are running at a lost this season. And we take a very carefull look into everymoney outside.
I hope to read from you today. my secretary e-mail is [email protected] or [email protected]
Thank you
>
Before my next reply, Adam tries a changeup
Hi Mark,
I cannot possibly figure out why you decided not to reply my mails. I was expecting your responce and perhaps the transfer deatails all to no avail today. As my secretary is on vacation that starts today, i will like to change the payment receivers name to the head of my account manager. Make the payment as dirrected bellow;
NAME; AREGBESOLA MOBOLAJI ABAYOMI
CITY; LONDON
COUNTRY; UNITED KINGDOM
After sending the money to the details above, send the following information to my email and also to my secretary for office documentation.
MTCN NUMBER;
SENDERS NAME;
SENDERS ADDRESS;
AMOUNT SENT IN DOLLARS;

And then
I called your office again, and it rang and noone did picked it, i droped a message. I wonder why the silence from you or your company. And also i don't know why you keep my money in your hands, despite the delay we have from you. You refused to responce to our transaction while holding our money in your hands. We started the transaction well, and i would like us to end it well. I believe you will not have me to blame if my solicitor either contact you or your company (ABIN) which you represent. Thank you

I can't let this go by
Hi Adam,
I just returned from Vegas.
Damn that secretary of mine. She was to answer the phones.
Ill have to fire her.
Well anyway, this ADEBANWO OLUKAYODE is a new individual.
Adam, I had already screened you with our Dept. of State, where you came up clean.
This person ADEBANWO OLUKAYODE will need to be cleared also before I can release the funds to this new entity.
Are you sure you dont want the money addressed to your name?
As you know things are quite tense around here.
Terrorists are a real problem. And a vacuum pump may be used for many things. You understand.
Is ADEBANWO OLUKAYODE an Arab name? Is It Middle Eastern?
Ill Run this new name through the agency tomorrow morning and then let you know as soon as I get their response.
Your check took four days.
Well get that money back to you as soon as possible.
Best regards,
Mark
>
Adam responds
Mark,
I really can't understand what you mean. Do i have anything to do with the terrorist organisation? Or do i look like a terrorist to you? Perhaps i am a devoted christian! Truely, i never expected this, but i certainly understand what you meant. Please don't have a wrong note concerning me. I never had such in mind towards you before i sent out the payment. so why? Please release the funds immediately, is actually affecting our account quaterly ballance and upgrade. I expect to have this information sent to me today. And also make a copy sent out to [email protected]

He can almost taste the money and offers some explanation
Adebanwo Olukayode is my secretary. And he had been working with me for the past four years and eight months. He is also a devote christian with no criminal record till date. He is one of the few people that start my business with me when i first came to britain from the state. Also he is a british. he ought to start his vacation, but i had called him back because of busy schedule in our office. Please make the payment out today, though, we know the right step to take if the money is not released as expected. Thank you. Again, the trasfer details;

Not so fast Adam...
Adam,
I dont know WHAT you look like or whether you work for terrorists but as a good American, I cant be too careful.
Nowadays many Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindi and others falsely claim to be Christians.
We all must be ever vigilant.
I understand that Adebanwo Olukayode is your secretary, but none the less, any party we
Cut a check for must clear US legal channels.
As I stated before, A payment to you would expedite matters completely ie olodo Adebanwo Olukayode
will be acceptable after I receive the agencies affirmative response attesting to his good character.
Dont worry Adam, a few thousand dollars is no big deal and we will get it back to you ASAP.
You can expect If those bureaucrats in Baltimore dont drag their feet to get clearance on or around Thursday.
Then we can get this thing moving.
As always,
Mark
This will take time.

Ok, i got your message. I was actually worried by your silence before. I look very forward to read from you soon after your findings. Thanks. keep me posted please!
And
Hello Mark, i am sure you should be through now with you findings. Or how many hours would it take to do a background check? Please reply me asap. Thank you
My money?
Hi Mark,
I called your office again this morning, and it was picked and the man that picked it droped it later. I called again and noone did the picking and i left a message for you. Now, i sent a mail to you yesterday, you still refused to make any reply....... i wonder why? We know what to do. Thank you

More chain yanking and some pidgin.
Hi Adam,
I got into the office late today.
I was out with Johnny Walker at the Atlantic City casinos for the day.
I was up 11k, but went home down 2,500.00. Roll of the dice.
The big booty pololo babes were fun though.
Hows the weather in London?
Enough small talk.
Anyway I have good news.
Your secretary, Adebanwo Olukayode , although Nigerian, has no outstanding record with the agency.
Please supply me with your bank Information and Ill get the secretary to cut you a check that you can cash at your bank.
We are on the way to getting this thing done.
I hope this ordeal has not been too much for you.
Best wishes,
Mark

My money
Hi Mark,
First, i will like to thank you for your reply. As i stated before, i want this money sent through western union money trasfer. I will appreciate it if this can be done today. The company is really running at a lost.

>
Adam hasn't figured this out.... yet.
Hi Adam,
Our treasurer tells me that our account doesnt allow us to disperse cash.
Once any funds hit our obo account money must be released by international bank check.
It may be possible to make another type of transfer, but it would need the owners approval and he is on vacation in Khartoum for two weeks.
Well, let me know how you wish to proceed.
Lets get this finished.
Best wishes to you,
Mark

Adam finds a new angle
Hi Mark,
I was out of office, i just came back this morning. I thought the money would had been sent by now, and as you said, i would like the check to be written out today and sent out to a friend in the state which i just spoken to. Please mail the check out to the following name and address.

An American businessman
Mortgage co.
Wesley Chapel,
Florida 33543.
Please confirm this to me immediately the check is sent. And let me know the amount ou remove and the amount you sent. Thank you
N.B ; I really can't understand why your phone is not picked?
And
Mark,
I just called now, and i can't still understand why each time i call, someone will pick the call and later hang back the phone. I am worried.
Please reply!

>
OK
Adam,
This new change is very worrisome to me. It has been suggested that the funds now may be being diverted to
someone other than the originally intended party.
Please have Mr. Gattos send us his particulars and do include the bank name and Federal routing Number as well as his account information.
He may use the same email address that you use.
My superior is still away so I will present this to our trustees on Thursday morning.
They will be less than happy about this new turn of events.
This is out of my hands now.
Adam, you need to stop these changeups so we can proceed.
Time is awasting
Time was spent clearing Mr. OLUKAYODE ADEBANWO.
Adam, you issued the original postal money order and the most officious way to conclude our business would be to
Issue a international business check back to you the issuer.
Thank you
OBO OBA (more pidgin)

I called the Florida businessman and explained the scam - not wanting to waste a legitimate mans time. He laughed and told me that "Adam" or his sister had been communicating with him for about a month.
The businessman tips "Adam" off anyway.

>
Adam decides to let me keep the money
YOU REALLY DON'T HAVE TO SURPRISE AT THIS MESSAGE. I GOT MORE THINGS TO DO THAN WAISTING MY TIME ON FEW THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, WHICH I GOT MORE IN MY ACCOUNT!
I HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE YOU MARK MY REFUND. YOU CAN SPEND IT THIS WEEKEND WITH YOUR FRIENDS OR FAMILY. TREAT YOURSELF NICE AND LET ME HAVE THE REMIX OF YOUR TRIP.
CHEERS!

I can't let go yet... more pidgin, and some Yoruba too
Hi Adam Grant - oba obo,
Oboy you be mumuooo
You are a thief , and a counterfeiter forging US postal money orders.
Did you really think that anyone would cash such a bad copy of a US Postal money order?
How about a honest pitch.. I am but a poor African in dire need of money.. or
Im President Mobutos illegitimate son begotten through a union with a goat?
All the communications I received from you numbers, headers, gracelandventures, Emman, internet
provider IDs have been forwarded to Scotland Yard, the US Postal inspectors, and the FBI.
Man Mortgage co. i.e. American businessman is getting copies too.
You should go back to selling used shoes.
Good luck And God bless you in your efforts to defraud innocent victims of their hard earned money.
