Henry Dugan vs. The 419 Scammers
Dugan vs. Obed

HOME

This correspondence was started by signing some guestbooks (which the fraudsters use as "leads" for their racket), and harvesting letters from them. I set up a phony scammer account and started writing to Henry Dugan as Ruth Obed.
 
I then "accidently" sent this off to about twenty scammers hoping for a bite. What follows is an ongoing account of the fish that I landed:
Pictures of Henry, a picture of Ruth, pictures of the diamonds and tiara are on this page

My Dear Big Daddy Dugan,

May the PEACE Of our LORD be with you.

How are you today & work? I hope that everything is fine.If so,thanks be to GOD.

I received a call today from the Manager of the Vault Company that our consignment has successfully arrived safely in Europe-Amsterdam, and that their Agent/Representative is in the process of Clearing the Luggages.

Please be advised that you are to make available with you in Amsterdam the following:

1. A valid proof of identification

2. Your of the Airway bill

3. The sum of 15,840.00 Euros (Ten Thousand, Eight Hundred and Forty Euros), representing Handling, Access and Custom charges.

I am looking forward to meeting with you personal when you arrive.

God Bless,

Ruth

Dear Ruth,

Thank you for providing this information. Here is my flight schedule:

January 17,2003

Depart: 11:10am

Dallas/Ft Worth, TX

(DFW)

Arrive: Next Day 6:45am

Amsterdam Netherlands

(AMS)

Airline: Northwest Airlines

Flight 414/42

Flight 414 is my flight from Dallas to Minnesota. I will be switching planes in Minnesota and flying flight 42, a Boeing 747 Jet, to Amsterdam Netherlands (AMS).

Please note that I will be dressed in a blue pinstripe suit, and you already have my picture. I shall also have a large black briefcase (my only carry-on), which contains the cash money ($16,394 USD) to pay for the demorage and miscellaneous fees that you have specified. We can either go together to switch the currency into Euros or if it is okay with you perhaps we can avoid this step and make the transactions using US currency. Please let me know when I arrive.

Please let us keep this flight schedule and planned meeting just between us. I will be traveling alone, and get a little nervous carrying this much cash around.

Anyhow, everything is all set for us now, and I am looking forward to spending some time with you and getting to know you better.

Warmest Regards,

Henry

My Dear Big Daddy Dugan,

May the PEACE Of our LORD be with you?

Thank you for your mail dated yesterday. First thing first I will want you to please disregard any email from my past email address ruthobed4@37.com only today I just discover that someone else has access to that particular email address and also that another arrangement has been made for you to meet with some other people fake agent/ representatives on your arrival today in Holland today who might probably try to just take money from you and just abandon you for no reason.

Immediately I discovered this I have contacted the security company for security reason and I was advice that the consignment be moved to their agent in London for safety instead of the Holland to avoid you been robbed by anyone who has information that the consignment has already arrived in Holland.

I have asked the security company to contact you on their own so that they can give you contact information of their agent in London. Or you can also contact the security company immediately by yourself to get the contact of their agent in London. Challengesecurities-finance@www.com.

I do not know who is behind this but for security reason I will want you to adhere by this directives to avoid you running into fake officials. Even with all the information they have, The security company just gave me a secret clearance code for you (AMERICA IS GOOD) they told me whosoever that comes to you even in Holland and when you proceed to London as the agent/representative, ask them your clearance code if they can not get it correct that means they are the fake people so do not deal with them.

Please on your arrival in Holland today do not contact anyone except the security company for proper directives. I just hope you are able to read this mail before the fake people comes to you because I believe they will only take the money from you willingly or forcefully.

I am very sorry for problem and inconveniences this might caused but I am happy this is discovered on time which might make you loose trust in me.

Do not disclose this to anyone who contacts you from anywhere so that the bad people will not get to know the new arrangement that everything will now be in London which mean you will have to go to London instead within a day or two from now.

I await your prompt response happy flying.

God bless,

Ruth

--------------------------------

Ruth,

What exactly is going on??? If you read my email to you and listened to our phone conversation, you would know that our scheduled meeting is not until January 18, 2003. I am not arriving in Holland today nor am I going to London in a few days (How could you mention London knowing the circumstances?). My plane does not leave until January 17. What kind of stupidness are you trying to pull??? I told you that I would not be able to get the money in cash until the 15th of this month... That is the reason for the delay.

Now, if you are still sincere about this transaction, then be straight with me. I don't have time for games! If you would like, I can cancel my flight to Amsterdam, and book another one to somewhere like Paris if you are truly concerned about security, but as I told you in an earlier email - London is out of the question. I thought I already made myself clear about this! The British have already issued a warrant for my arrest stemming from that incident at Buckingham Palace and the Queen's jewels that I mentioned to you, and if I show my face in that country again they will arrest me on sight.

Ruth, it scares me to think that someone may be pretending to be you to steal from me. You must send me a picture immediately so that when I finally meet you, I'll know that it is truly you. I know you told me that you don't have many pictures of yourself, but couldn't you at least try to find one to email me? For our safety and security. I know that $16,000 is not too much money, and that is not my major concern. I am worried about being discovered with the diamonds and do not want them to fall into the wrong hands. Please, for safety's sake - send me a picture so that I know I'm giving them to the right lady.

Please tell me how Tito and Jermaine are doing. Does Jermaine still have the flu??? I am looking forward to the day when we all can be together. I promise to do everything in my power to secure our future together. As you know, one of these shiny rocks alone will put both boys through college...

Take care, and please respond promptly. Everything is all set like I said, but I can change my flight plans if needed.

Warmest Regards,

Your Big Daddy Dugan

Dearly Beloved Dugan,

I am pleased to have been divinely connected to you.

Well,I am pleased with all the arrangement you have made but please and 
please,i want you to create a new email address only for me because i 
recieve some funny mail from my 37.com account.

Please do not for any reason send any more mail via my previous email 
address.All mail  from now should be with this new email.

I can not wait to meet with you,daddy !

Yours

Ruth 
-----------------------------

Ruth... Did you get my last email??? You keep switching email addresses on me. I can't keep up with all of these...

In case you didn't get it, here it is again... I will create a new email account as soon as you respond to the things in this letter... You haven't addressed anything, it is important that we get on the same page where this transaction is concerned or I will be cancelling my plans and I know you don't want me to do that... Especially after all the planning we've done... Respond to the following letter or I'll know you are not serious and will have to call things off.

Dearly Beloved Daddy,

Honestly,I think I need to be careful and take my time so that we do 
not make mistakes.I also believe you know why i am scared.Please and 
please my honey,every mail must be on this email.I do not want you to 
confuse me with some crooks.Do not respond to any mail outside this very one 
please.

I must have my picture send to you before friday this week because the 
scanner here is faulty and we hope it will be put in place before then.

Daddy,having reminded me of your case in london,I think Amsterdam 
remains our best option.Therefore Honey,I will like the date change 
preferably 25th instead of the previous arrangement which I know is no more 
secret.Snap a new picture and send to me and ensure you put on the same 
cloth for the trip,i will not call you before then and i will not want 
you to do the same for security reasons.Also,change this your yahoo email 
address for me at least for now. 

Well,I do not know how to thank you enough for everything,but i hope to 
make it up to you darling.
My baby is getting on better and they extend there greetings to 
you.They are lovely kids and I know you will love them too.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Yours only,

Ruth

 

------------------------------

 


Ruth, Thank you for your last email. I am so glad to hear that both boys are doing well. How have you been? Are you excited about seeing me? I think about you every day, and can't wait to finally see you. As requested I have changed my email address, and quit replying to your other one at 37.com. I keep getting emails from there that look like they are from you. Are you sure that you are not writing them??? They are written in your style, and the letters refer to things that we have talked about recently. Here is my flight information for my upcoming trip to Amsterdam: Leave Dallas, TX: January 25 at 4:00pm EST on Northwest Airlines Flight 696. Arrive Detroit, MI (DTW): January 25 at 7:30pm EST. Depart Detroit, MI (DTW): January 25 at 9:40pm EST on Northwest Airlines Flight 48. Arrive Amsterdam Netherlands (AMS) January 26 at 11:40am. Please note that I will be very tired upon arriving, and most likely jet-lagged. I will most likely need to rest before we do any transactions. I plan to check into the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam-American upon my arrival. This is located at Leidsekade 97 (Leidse Square - about 9 miles from the airport). I will not be keeping the money or the diamonds in the hotel safe, as I am concerned about security. I feel that they will be much safer in my room. I don't think that I'll feel secure carrying that much money or jewels. We need to discuss when we should meet so that I don't have to carry them around with me everywhere I go. Can you recommend a safe place for me to store them? I have attached my picture again as you asked. Do you no longer have it? I would have thought that you would always remember my face after our intimate conversations on the phone. Also, I need to ask you if you think that I should bring the tiara. I've attached a picture of it for your inspection. The diamonds that I've attached are only four of the twenty that I will be bringing. What do you think of them? Anyhow, please write back quickly and respond to this letter. I can't wait to see you dear. Yours, Big Daddy Dugan

Dearest Dugan,

I can not express in totality my gladness in knowing you,and I still
wonders why on earth,I should deserve a perfect gentleman like you.
I knew there had to be a Mr WONDERFUL over there somewhere,that
my dear is YOU! Our God is awesome and to think he never sleeps;I
know for a fact that he has been watching over me and my innocent
kids for a long time.You have brightened up my life! Thanks a million
my BIG DADDY!I can not thank or reward you enough.

Well my dear,I have taken note of the informations you sent and
I think everything is perfect just as you are in that photogragh
of yours.You know what?My Kids are dragging who should keeps the
picture!Is funny dearling.Do you know you are handsome and sure
a man that everywoman who long to be with?(I pray non of your Mistress will read this)

Meanwhile darling,I am certain that with the arrangements now and
Good God by ourside,we have no more reason to worry or to be scared
whatsoever.Whoever is playing on the back ground remains a loser.As
a matter of fact,I have succeeded in contacting one of my Husband
close friend during the good old days who was a Formal Diplomat
living with the Family in Holland for years now,I confided in him
and he has assured me of absolute security and assistance during
our short stay in Holland.Although i have not given him details
but for sure with him,DADDY we have no problems at all.

Dugan my dear,those Tiara are beautiful .Please go ahead and bring
them along,they are lovely.Lastly,I am getting a clearer picture
of the source of all those funny mails,I believe our conversation
was bugged and there after i am being spied on.To confirm that,I
will like you to forward to me the last mail before our phone discussion
and the one after it.If you take closer study on these,you will confirm my suspicion.

I will close here for now,please take good care of yourself.My two
soldiers sent there warmest greetings and long to meet with you soonext.

Prayers and deep love to my BIGGY!

Yours Truly Darling,

Ruth.

My Big Daddy,

How are you today and business?

I believe all is well.I decided to email you to find out if you
recieved my email of yesterday in respect to yournew flight information.

Mine, you know how I feel when I do't hear from you specially with
the situations both of us are passing through lately in communication.

I will send my picture tomorrow after recieving your email.

Have a wonderful time.I remain grateful that I find and have you daddy!

Yours Ownthing,

Ruth
 
------------------------
Dear Ruth,

I received your last email. Thank you, it means a lot to me whenever
I hear from you. I'm so sorry I haven't written sooner. I've had
important business to take care of with my company, and haven't
had time to sit down and write to you.
This email is going to be brief, as I have several important meetings
to attend. Please be patient my dear. Soon we will be together.
I am looking forward to a nice vacation after working so many hours.
Of course I'll bring the tiara with me. It is beautiful isn't it?
I think that it would look better on you than on me anyhow. It is my gift to you.
Give Tito and Jermaine a hug from me, and tell them I look forward
to seeing both of them. It would be wise though if they weren't
in attendance for our first meeting together. They may feel funny
seeing a stranger embrace their mother.

I'm getting excited about my upcoming flight, and can't wait to see you.

Fondly,
Daddy Dugan
-----------------------
 
Dear Daddy,

How are you today?

I believe you recieved the picture.Well my dear,I expected to hear
from you in respect to my last mail and my suggestion about the
formal diplomat who was a close family friend in the good old days.

I believe for security reasons they are our best option.Will like
them to recieve you at the airport on your arrival?
Please let me know because whichever way your security is my prime
concern.To ensure they are the right people to meet you on arrival,I
will am sending to him the same picture I sent to you.

So daddy,I am waiting to meet you and hope I will not be meeting
an over worked up Daddy instead of the BIG DADDY!!!
Take good care of yourself and work less at least for now.

Greetings from my kids !

Thanks,

Yours Truly,

Ruth

My Dear Ruth,

I received your picture, and I am captured by your beauty. I loved
your voice on the phone, and now I have a face to go with that angelic
voice. I've actually missed hearing it, and have thought about telephoning
you within the next few days just to touch base.

Personally, I would prefer that you receive me at the airport yourself
instead of the diplomat that I do not know. Please understand darling
that I will be carrying over $16,000 dollars with me in a briefcase,
twenty precious diamonds worth over $500,000, and a gem-laden tiara
that could easily fetch a quarter of a million dollars. Due to this
large amount of cash and gems, I don't want some stranger meeting
me at the airport. I want you - and only you to meet me. We could
meet with the diplomats the following day, after we've had time
for some private time for just us. Besides, I want to personally
give you the tiara when we are all alone. Forgive me for saying
this but, I'm anxious to see how you would look wearing it and nothing
else. I think you'd look more like a queen than you already do.

You haven't answered my question regarding the demorrage. Is it
really necessary to transfer the US dollars into Euros? I'm just
looking to save some time, and thought that if we could avoid this
step, it would allow more time for us to spend together.

I'm always overworked, but that is nothing new. That is why I am
excited about taking this vacation. I need to relax, and hopefully
(with your help) I'll be able to do that. You can help me to relax can't you?

By the way, everything is just about in order at my company's bank
to withdraw the cash next Wednesday (the 15th). I've decided to
do the withdrawal in such a way so as to not show any trace of the
money leaving the business account. I'll tell you all about this
method when we are alone together  - - - or maybe I won't have time
to tell you if my lips are busy with other more important matters.

Yours,
Big Daddy

Daddy Dugan,

How are you today?I guess you are fine and that business is moving on fine.

Daddy,sorry for my late reply to your email.The server was bad and
I felt too bad because I couldn't wait to tell you how flattered
I am when I read your email.I wonder if,I am as prety as you paint
me with your words.But if am,Thank you so much and welcome!

Well My Big Daddy,I want to inform you that going by the recent
events we both noticed concerning our communication,I have taken
it as a prime task of ensuring our safety and the gems as well.I
am not sending any stranger to you,off-course not at all,because
they are like part of my family and they own it to me hence they
are residing in Holland.Besides,I will be there myself to accord
you a grand welcome.Daddy my darling,we need there assistance!

Besides,there is no need to worry about the currency.We can make
the payments with United States Dollar.So that is not a problem .
Honestly my dear,I am excited finding you,meeting you,and i wouldn't mind keeping you as well!

You have lighted me up inside and I can't be more gratefull only
I am disturbed about my Kids.I just hope we finalise all these 
and we all come over to the states to stay,because there health
is giving me serious concern always sickness every time unlike them.I do not know what to do!

Please my Daddy,I am looking up to you,i am very grateful for everything
you are doing for us.Atimes i wonder what would have become of us,if
i haven't find somebody like you.

I am hoping to meet you and pray that i can really help you to relax
through out our short stay togather.

Thanks once again and have a wonderful weekened.I am praying for you always.

Yours Own,

Ruth.

From: ruth obed <ruth_obed4@yahoo.com

My Darling Daddy,

How are you today?

It is me your darling,I am finding it difficult to access my dygo account since monday as a result of reconstruction.And off course,I can not wait to get across to you now that we have just few days before our meeting in armsterdam.Please Daddy bear with me.I send my picture as well for your confirmation,there should be no mistakes daddy.

Did you recieve my last email becuase the server here was too bad and I have been worried because I have no access to email you as a result of the problems.

You know how much I like reading your mails and how flatered i am by your words.Then why are you denying me all that specially now I need it most.

Please always keep me posted.

I believe all arrangement is still as we earlier aggreed on 26th january?.I can't wait to hug you and tell you how much you have affected my life positively,when all my hopes are almost gone.

I will remain very grateful to you and hope I can make it up to you when we finally settle in the states with you.My kids greets you!

I love you my Big Daddy and hope you do the same.

Thanks a lot and remain Bless till we meet!

Yours Queen,

Ruth

 

 

Dear Ruth,

I'm glad you sent your picture so that I knew it was you. I'm sorry you can't access your Dygo account. Soon we will be together and won't have to rely on email. We can talk in person.

 I went to the bank today and made the withdrawal. The bank manager gave me a strange look taking out this much cash money, but I don't think they were too suspicious.

Everything is all set now. I only need to pack my bags, and find a safe way to transport the tiara and diamonds. Of course I'll pack them in the briefcase with the demurrage money, but I just need to ensure that they are wrapped very very carefully so that no damage occurs.

I'm quite depressed at this time because my cat, Precious, has died. She managed to get outside yesterday morning somehow and I hadn't seen her all day. When I arrived home from work last night I found her frozen body on the front porch by the door. Long scratch marks were down the face of the door, as though she was trying frantically to get into the house to escape the weather. Poor thing - had I only been home I could have saved her. The weather outside is frightful. Unbelievable for Texas but yesterday it was ten degrees below zero. So my heart is broken because she was very special to me. Do you have any pets that are dear to you? Can you possibly understand how it feels to lose one?

Thank you for standing by me. We will soon be living as king and queen in our castle. I cannot wait to cook for you. You will have to teach me how to cook some of the dishes from your culture. What is your favorite one? I know you told me on the phone, but I forgot what it was. Please refresh my memory.

Did you arrange your flight yet? Please tell me when you will be arriving in Amsterdam and which flight you will be on, in case I arrive before you so I can look for you.

If you arrive first I think you should hold a sign that reads "Big Daddy Dugan" so that I can find you right away. You also have my pictures, so please take one with you to the airport, so that you will recognize me immediately.

Well, I must depart for now because I am very tired from working. Rest well dear, because when we are together, I doubt I'll give you the opportunity to sleep.

Yours,

Big Daddy --

 

 

Dearest Daddy Dugan,

Thanks for your mail and please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of your "precious".I know is really painfull losing a dear pet like that,I just hope you get another before my arrival and an additional pet-Dog for Tito, my son because he loves Dog so much.

Well Daddy,I am going to be a bit brief because I need to finalise my travelling arrangement,so that I can send you my flight schedule and time of arrival.The agent handling that have been doing everything possible to meet up with time.You know I am processing a new travelling ducuments.


As soon that is sorted out I will notify you immidiately.Please I am grateful for all the time and concern,you just have to bear with me because I am handling and planing all this alone,how I wish you are here to help out!

Meanwhile Daddy,I have taken note of your instruction should I arrive before you,but if you should arrive before me,there is still,no problem because you are capable of taken care of yourself with the assistance of Hon.King Collins,the diplomate.


Daddy please,send to me a secure private telephone line that the manager of the Voult Company can contact you with,because they need to talk to you and book an appointment due to numarous clients they are attending to.

Lastly,buy a cooking book for your cooking lecture when I come over.Although it may not be necessary because you can only cook for me when I am tired which I doubt.
I can't wait to talk to you and feel you daddy.

Have a nice time and dream of me.Greetings from my kids!

Yours Own QUEEN,

Ruth.

My darling Ruth,

Hello dear. I pray this letter finds you in good health. I'm sorry I haven't written sooner, but I have much to do before my upcoming vacation.

Ruth, what exactly is happening? I thought it was arranged that I would be meeting with you initially instead of the diplomat, Hon. King Collins. Please understand that I am very nervous about meeting anyone else due to what I will be carrying. I know you said we could trust him, but all the same I prefer to see only you at first. Besides, due to all the trouble you've had with someone else pretending to be you with your 37.com email account, I don't want to take any chances.

The ONLY way I will meet with Hon. King Collins is if he sends me his picture so that I can identify him at the airport. This way I will know that it is truly him when I see him. I will not be talking to anyone whose picture I don't have. If you are in contact with him now, please have him take his picture holding a sign that reads DADDY DUGAN and send it to me immediately. This way I will know that I can trust him when I see him in Amsterdam. Please Ruth, understand that I cannot take any chances due to the amount of money and jewels that I will be carrying. It would be heartbreaking if I was robbed by someone claiming to be you or him. Please do this for me my darling.

Also, why do I need to talk to the manager of the vault company again? I already talked to that man in December and he said that everything was finalized with the transaction. Don't you remember??? I think he said his name was Hassen when he called me, and he told me that the inheritance money would be released exclusively to me as next of kin. Well, if he needs to talk to me again go ahead and give him my private telephone number that you already have my dear, and I suppose I'll talk to him. Just advise him not to call me so late again. Remember the time zone differences.

Anyhow, I'm getting very excited and can't wait to hold you in my arms darling. Please have King Collins send me his picture holding a sign that reads DADDY DUGAN so that I know who I can trust when I arrive at last. I wish it was you meeting me though. When will I see you after I arrive? I keep imagining you wearing this tiara while I run my hands all over your body. I promise to always treat you like the lovely queen that you are.

Please write me back as soon as you can.

Who loves ya baby?

Big Daddy Dugan

 

Dear Daddy Dugan,

How are you,and your weekened ? I recieve your email and hopfully I will be there for you at the Airport to accord you a darling welcome.But for any reason,I am not there,do not be worried because Hon.Collins,will be there to recieve you and make you a second person.

I cannot for any reason,risk having you alone with all that to your Hotel Room.I am more concern about you.Off course you know my story,and how much this transaction means to me,that is the more reason I sort for his assistance."If his wide experiances with security matters is something to go by"Besides,that will give us more rest of mind to be alone togather without distractions of any kind,knowing for sure that all is in place.

Also Darling,I have email him as you requested,but be informed that he will hold a sign that reads "K.COLLINS"instead of "DADDY DUGAN" in case.Also,ensure that you wear the last cloth you worn on that last picture you sent to me,that will make it easier for me and him to spot you from afar.

Meanwhile,the manager of the Vault Company has passed the information across that our appiontment Date and Time has been scheduled for 27th jan by 11.30am.And that we are expected to arrive in good time.He also stressed on the requirements as earlier sent to you.

Lastly my Darling Daddy,you have become so dear to me that I am lost in thought in chosen a right befitting Gift of appreciation to present to you on your arrival!

Well,I am very greateful to you and hope you will keep all your promises of treating me like your QUEEN! Hope to see your Handsome Face this week.

Yours OWNTHING!

Ruth

people are friendly people mostly to strangers".This
is 7 years I have lived here with my Family.

I hope you-two will have a good stay with us.

My regards,and welcome.

Yours Faithfully,

Hon.k. Collins

My Darling Daddy,

I am not too happy that you did not email me for sometime now besides,I 've been in the Clinic with high hope of recieving your email this afternoon but was disappointed.I hope you'll not tell me is business this time that stop you.

Meanwhile,we're living the clinic today after two days of sleepless night with Jamiame.The Doctor said it is an ACUTE NIMONIA as a result of cold.

I just hope,he doesn't die in my arms one day.Daddy,I have emailed Hon. Collins as you requested.Have he sent the picture to you?

All is set now to meet you,at least to take a little breath from these Kids.I will living here on 25th being saturday via Lufthanza to Paris,I will change flight to Amsterdam via KLM 06.45am,and will arrive 08.00am (kl1226) .on 26th morning.I will a enough time to rest before recieving you at the Airport by 11.30am.

I will stop here!

I love you! Have a nice Flight and keep fit!!

Yours Ownthing,

Ruth

 
 
My darling Ruth,

I'm sorry for not writing earlier. I had much to take care of before
putting business aside for a long leisurely vacation.

You will be most pleased to hear that I am in Amsterdam now! I decided
to catch a flight early so that my trip can be extended by a few
days and for security reasons in case someone had read your mail.
I was on Singapore Airlines Flight 35 and only just arrived this
morning (Holland time) at 10:00am. Therefore it is not necessary
for Mr. Collins to wait for me at the airport.

I've spent a good part of the day relaxing. Long flights make me
very very tired, and I wanted to be fresh when I at last saw you.
On impulse I decided to switch to a more secure hotel with less
lavish surroundings. I thought it only appropriate that I check
into the Hotel Princess on Overtoom. Not a real fancy place, but
it is good enough for me. When you email me back, I will tell you
where we should meet. I am not taking any chances here. We must
use a code so that I know it is you. When you email me back please
write the words "kojak is alive" in the subject. If I receive any
emails without that code I will know that someone is trying to impersonate
you, and will not respond to it.

All of your talk about someone pretending to be you has made me
very jumpy indeed in a strange country. But what a wonderful place
this is! For lunch I ate at the Wanka Restaurant on Bosboom Toussaintstr.
I must admit that I have a fondness for teriyaki shrimp and asparagus,
and Wanka has the best that I've ever tasted. This evening, I will
be stopping by De Blauwe Druife (The Blue Grape) for some Heineken
on tap. I cannot wait until you arrive so that we can both explore this wonderful city together.

Please write back as soon as you receive this darling.

Love,
Big Daddy Dugan
 
 
Mr. Collins;

I received your email, but I have yet to receive your picture.

I arrived here in Amsterdam earlier than planned due to security
reasons. For my safety I insist that we use a code in all future
emails. In the subject line please write "kojak is alive". This
way I will know that the mail is from someone that I can trust.
Ruth has informed me that someone has been pretending to be her
to steal from me while I am here. I have also advised her to use this same code.

I will want to meet with you and Ruth in a public place at first
so that I am sure of who I am dealing with before completing any
transactions. Please await my instructions on where to meet.

I will only be communicating by email with you and Ruth using my
laptop computer at first in case anyone is attempting to eavesdrop on phone conversations.

Please understand my position here. I am alone in a strange country
and am carrying a lot of money and valuables with me. So I can't
take any chances. I would rather be safe than sorry. After I have
made absolutely sure that there is no mistaken identity of you or
Ruth, I'm sure that I will feel more at ease. After which, I'm looking
forward to a nice quiet dinner with both of you - my treat of course.

I will await your prompt response to ensure that you have received
this email and we will go from there.

Regards,
Henry Dugan

 

Dearest Daddy,

Please can you kindly give me your hotel number to call you tomorrow before I board Flight.

Look Daddy,it is very important I should talk  to you and get confirmation of the information I got concerning the your pictures you send.

Till I hear from you,

Yours,

RUTH

 

Ruth,

I sent you an email yesterday, but have yet to hear back from you.
I had hoped that you would write back  immediately. I did receive
an email from someone, but I'm not sure if it was really from you
as the code was not in the subject line. I fear that someone may
be trying to impersonate you. I am going to need absolute proof
that it is really you - so this is what we will do... Besides using
our hidden code in the subject line. Please reveal to me what my
favorite color is. You should remember this as we discussed it on
the phone shortly before Christmas.

Also, I have switched hotels and am no longer staying at The Princess
Hotel here, as I am not sure that you are who you say you are. I
will tell you which one I have moved to when I am sure that it is really you.

You can call me on my mobile phone as well and give me the code
words and my favorite color so that I know it is you. You should
have this number already since you called me on it twice in early
December and told me that you had the phone number memorized.

I pray that I am writing to the right person here. I am very very
concerned that you are not really Ruth Obed. If I find that to be
true, rest assured that I will have you arrested for attempting
to defraud me out of over $15,000. If you truly are Ruth Obed you
will know how to prove it to me.

If this really is Ruth Obed that I am writing to, please forgive
me for my paranoia. I am alone in a strange country and am concerned for my safety.

Big Daddy Dugan

Daddy,                                                       "kojak is alive"

I can not believe all these are happening to me,you know how tease up I am about my travel coupled with the present state of health of my kids which you are aware of.Now when did I saw your mail yersterday,I was happy for the suden arrangement and precautions you have taken.But along the line,I recieve an information from Hon.K.Collins from Holland telling me that you sent to me all along a ghost picture!

You can imagine my state of mind when I hear such an information.That your photogragh which you sent to me was a picture of a dead Actor in America.I begin to wonder how on earth you have been fooling me all along.

Well,I have email the Voult Company to hold on untill I resolve this issues else is over.

Now for us to go ahead,clearify this information because Honourable can not be making joke of me knowing my present situation.I told you he is the only person that I have instructed you to confide in.Also forward to me the email you recieved from a stranger!

I awaits to hear this tomorrow else have it in mind you have broken my mind and "GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE FOR THAT."

Subject: Urgent!!! Regarding Henry Dugan

Ruth,

How you dey. SORRY SAY I NOR REPLY ON TIME,YOU KNOW SAY THIS NOR BE MY NATURE,I GO STAMP FOR ADURO SIDE,SO I JUST WAN LET YOU KNOW SAY I GO ACT AS INSTRUCTED BY YOU. NA ME.

On a more serious note, It has been fun conversing with you, but I'm getting bored. You and I know that this whole thing has been a game. You thought you had a mugu on your hands, but I think that it is you who is the real mugu.

Oh, maybe I should introduce myself to you? This is Henry Dugan. I own this account also. It was me sending a letter to myself then "accidently" sending it to you when you "intercepted" it. You see olodo (or should I call you egbe since you come off like a bush person), I chose you. You didn't choose me. I make it my business to bait 419 scammers such as yourself. It is my mission to get your hopes up by making you think that you're going to get rich - then crushing those hopes and dreams like so many of you cockroaches that I've already crushed. I enjoy this. I play many roles, and you never know when you are going to be corresponding with me.

I must however compliment you. You seem somewhat smarter and more opportunistic than some of the scammers I've played with. Those guys from the Ivory Coast really suck at it. I can only assume that you must be from Nigeria (probably Lagos), since you come across somewhat more intelligent... but don't let that compliment go to your head. I still think that you're scum. Nothing more than a glorified opiro (one who steals street chickens - but you already knew that huh?), who preys on the weaknesses of dumb foreigners. I will continue to make your lives miserable in any way that I can. You are fortunate in that I've let you off of the hook because you bore me to tears. I could have continued for as long as I wanted...

Anyhow "Ruth", There is no "demorrage money", diamonds, or tiara. And yes, I sent you pictures of Telly Sevalis, an actor who played the role of Kojak in the 1970s. Funny thing is, Kojak quit smoking cigarettes by substituting lolipops (suckers). His trademark persona always showed him with a sucker. I think that YOU have been his sucker in this case. Jermaine and Tito were members of The Jackson Five, Michael Jackson's brothers. I threw them in just to hear what silly bullshit you'd come up with about them.

I'm assuming that you are a male. Most of you 419 scammers are. Tell me, was it "de-masculating" for you to have to play the part of a woman in this? I know that it is very important for African men to have a strong sense of masculinity. I was simply wondering if it bothered you or you had difficulty pretending to be an African bitch sucking up to her "big Daddy" who held money and jewels out in front of her nose like a pimp. I'll bet it did. I think that somewhere in the recesses of your thick, unempathetic, criminal mind - you probably asked yourself, "Why am I doing this degrading work". "Why am I shaming myself in this way?" Oh well, such is your life, glad it ain't mine.

I could get raw on you right now in this final stage and start insulting you and generations of your family and make insinuating remarks about fun times you've had when you used to gbensh goats, but I find that to be immature and a waste of time. So instead I'll leave you with one final thought that one of your own "reformed scammers" (if there is such a thing) said in an interview when asked why he left the "family business". He said that he thought it was shameful lazyman's work. What I found most profound though was when he said, 'One cannot speak to the gods with a mouth that is already full of lies.'. I think that man was wise for leaving.

WHO LOVES YA BABY?

Henry Dugan/ Big Daddy/ Kojak
