Fulton Finance Fraud Finale

11 April 2014, 09:23


For those of you who have been asleep at the wheel: At the end of Episode 2, we left off where Harry was waiting for Eric to send him his banking details and proof that $70 was sent via Western Union.

Captain’s Log, Stardate 43125.8. We have entered a spectacular binary star system in the Kavis Alpha sector on a most critical mission of astrophysical research

Sorry, I got my logbooks mixed up.

At 10:29, on the 10th of April 2014, Eric sent the following e-mail to Harry. Attached were two finely faked forged documents, with false banking details, and a phony Western Union receipt:

Eric: Good day to you, Harry. I trust all is well with you.

Attached, you will find all my personal banking details which I got from my bank, Standard Bank, as well as the Western Union payment receipt for $70.00. I hope you’ll find it in order.

Please notify me as soon as the loan is paid into my banking account.

You have been a great help – I shall recommend your service to all my friends and clients. Thank you once again, my friend. I shall forever be indebted to you.

At 16:17 Harry replied.

Harry: I am not very happy with this.. My accountant just came back from the bank and he said there is no money in the Western Union information you sent.. I really do not like delays in my transfers.. Go to the Western Union were you made the payment and rectify the error as soon as possible and send me the details so that we can start transfer okay..

“This has gone on long enough,” said Eric. “Let’s pull the plug on him.”

Eric: Oh, Mr. Harry Lynn, or whatever your name is, you are such a pitiable, wretched, little man!

Did you really think that you could outwit me, Eric de la Vega de Castro, the Greatest Scambaiter in the world, with your pathetic little scam? You fool! I saw right through you, from the start!

I have published all the e-mails of your despicable attempts to swindle me on News24, on the Internet. Everyone now knows about this scam. Your confidence trick has been exposed for the whole wide world to see!

Attached, you will find photos of your so-called Loan Agreement which were also published on News24.

Lastly, I have been to an evil witchdoctor. She has cast a spell and put a curse on you, your family, your home, and all your Nigerian friends. Bad things will happen to you; and just when you think that it’s all over, an even worse fate will befall you. You will never sleep peacefully again. Your suffering shall be long and painful.

Here is the Evil Curse:

“Harry Lynn whom I now see,
you'll go insane from vanity.
You'll see yourself as others do,
all your looks are gone from you.
What was is gone and now is true;
all your beauty will flee from you.
You look in the mirror; yourself to tend,
your youthful face has come to an end.
Your mighty ego now is broken;
you'll go insane in that same token.
I take this all away from you,
because of all the things you do.
Once you thought you were so great,
I bring you down to meet your fate.
The smell of stench is in the air,
around you now, you'll lose your hair.
In your mind you'll go insane;
vanity is now your pain.
This curse is now manifesting by the powers of the Deities that rule the Darkest of the Abyss... Lucifer, Beelzebub, and Astarot. So be it!”

Farewell, it was not nice knowing you at all.

Your Nemesis,

Eric de la Vega de Castro (*PBUM)

Back to the present:

I thanked Eric, but before he left on his next quest, I had a question for him.

“Why did you put a curse on Harry? Do you think it will work?” I asked.

“Of course it will. I have a deep understanding of the traditions of the indigenous people of Duckest Africa,” he said, slipping into the vernacular. “The west thing you can do to a pessin, is to put a kess on him. The pee pull believe that witchdoctas can hum them with magic spells.”

“Believe me; we seen the end of Mr. Harry Lynn – especially after he opens my last e-mail to him. The virus which I attached to it, takes no prisoners. His hard drive is history.”

Eric whistled as he left the building.

*PBUM - Peace Be Upon Me
