The Aristocrat


In which Lord Murray, 18th Earl of Gypping, attempts to help a bank official to appropriate funds from a dead German’s bank account in order to save the roof of Hemlock Hall, aided and abetted by a supporting cast of strangely familiar aristocratic characters.

Cast of characters

  • Lord Murray – 18th Earl of Gypping.
  • Dr Nkonye Akubia – allegedly an employee in a bank in the Ivory Coast.
  • Sir Yao Ngoran – another bank official.
  • Adama Sangare – a rather silent lawyer, recommended by the bank.

FROM THE DESK OF BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER, DR, NKONYE, BANQUE INTERNATIONALE DE ABIDJAN. ABIDJAN, REPUBLIC OF COTE D’IVOIRE.

TEL 0022505-66-37-31 ATTN,

I am the Manager of Bill and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of Banque Internationale de Abidjan (BIA). I am writing following the impressive information about you through my research from your country directory. It’s assured me of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $18.5 million (eighteen million, five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a Concorde plane crash in the year 2000 in Paris that almost took the whole life of the passengers on board. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after three years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury account as unclaimed fund.

The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an Ivoirean cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me. Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Nkonye (Bill and Exchange Manager)

Private line: 0022505-66-37-31

NB. My intention of writing you through email is because I believe it is very confidential.

Sent: Thu, 06 Nov 2003 10:14:36

Nkonye,

I am writing in response to the intriguing email that you sent to me a while ago. I must apologise for the lateness of my response – you must have thought I was never going to get back to you – but my laptop has been out of action for a while and I have only just managed to get it back up and running. It has taken me days to work through the mountain of emails that I had received.

Having considered your proposal, I am extremely interested, and feel that I am in a position to be able to help you out.

However, it seems to me that to carry out what you suggest would be sailing rather close to the wind of the law, if you get my drift. Can you absolutely assure me that there is no risk involved in this affair? I have my reputation to consider, and it would be disastrous for me if the press got wind of the fact that I was involved in anything remotely felonious.

If you require my assistance, please email me back with further details.

Best regards,

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

Subject: More information on me

Sent: Thu, 06 Nov 2003 16:18:02

Nkonye,

Thank you for your prompt response to my email, and for providing me with the extra information I requested. I remember the Concorde crash you refer to as if it were only yesterday. The sight of that majestic plane falling from the sky in a ball of flame will be imprinted on my mind forever. What a terrible day that was. How fortunate, though, that some good can come out of such a tragic event – both of us stand to do very well out of the death of that poor German fellow.

You made it very clear in your email that trust is imperative in this matter. I could not agree more. I understand the delicacies involved, and we both have our reputations to uphold, so I can assure you that I will deal with this matter with the utmost secrecy, tact and discretion.

I can quite understand that you want to know as much as possible about me before we collaborate on this business. I shall therefore give you some background information on myself, which I hope will convince you of my sincerity, honesty and trustworthiness, and will show that I am a suitable partner for this venture.

As you say that you have already carried out some preliminary research on me, you presumably know that I am Lord Murray, 18th Earl of Gypping. Note therefore, that the correct form of address is “Lord Murray”, not “Gilbert”. Only my dear late mother called me “Gilbert”. I would appreciate it if you could address me properly from now on. For the record, my full name is Gilbert Arnold Algernon Ffarquhar Pomphrey Maurice Micklewhite Murray. My family has a tradition of passing on the names of relatives to their offspring, resulting in rather overlong names such as mine. “Lord Murray” is thankfully much more succinct.

My family is of Norman stock (the family name was originally “de Meurray” until it was anglicised), and came over to England with the Conqueror in 1066. The family first came to prominence when my distant ancestor, Gaston Hirondelle de Meurray, a knight in the King’s service, assisted the Conqueror when he fell ill after eating a surfeit of lamprey. The grateful monarch granted him the hereditary title of King’s Keeper of the Privy, a title which has been proudly held by my ancestors up to and including the present day (although the duties associated with the role have thankfully been reduced to one ceremonial act per year, which takes place on 21 August).

My family has been pre-eminent in English history from that day forward. The first Earl, Norman Stanley Fletcher Murray, was granted the Earldom of Gypping by Charles II the day after the King was restored to the throne. The first Earl had been one of the King’s most faithful retainers all the way through Cromwell’s Commonwealth, and risked his life on many occasions to perform his duties in the King’s service. The Earldom of Gypping, and a substantial parcel of land in the county of Lincolnshire, was his reward.

The first Earl lost no time in stamping his mark on his land by beginning the construction of Hemlock Hall, on the edge of the village of Gypping in the Marsh. It was not the best location to build a large manor house; as the name of the village suggests, the ground around here is extremely swampy, and the original Hall sank into the mire just three years after it was completed. Nevertheless, the first Earl persevered, and found that the sunken timbers of the first Hall made an excellent foundation for the construction of the second Hemlock Hall, which forms the basis for the house in which my family has lived ever since. As the fortunes of my family grew in the intervening centuries, the Hall was extensively enlarged, but you can still see traces of the original Hemlock Hall in the cellars below the second ballroom.

Unfortunately, the 20th Century was not so kind to my family. A combination of rising death duties and ill-conceived business ventures (such as the 16th Earl’s plans to ship coals to Newcastle and sell ice to the Esquimau) resulted in my family’s fortune being dramatically reduced.

When my father, the 17th Earl, died, I inherited not only the Earldom and Hemlock Hall, but crippling debts. Ever since I inherited the title, it has been a constant struggle for me to maintain Hemlock Hall and to prevent it from sinking into a state of total dereliction. Thankfully, my efforts have so far been successful. I have been forced to cut back the number of staff working here to the bone, and have started a number of reasonably successful business ventures, selling organic produce that we grow on the estate. I have even managed to wrest back some of the family’s fortune, and thanks to a frugal lifestyle, can now count myself as reasonably wealthy once again.

However, Hemlock Hall remains in a parlous state. This is why I am keen to partake in this business venture. The 30% of the profits coming my way should be enough to arrest the decline in the Hall’s condition and to carry out some of the most urgent building work, such as stabilising the foundations, treating the rising damp and replacing the roof. Without this work, Hemlock Hall is doomed to fall into wrack and ruin. After such a long line of illustrious ancestors, I would hate to be known as the Earl who allowed the Hall to fall.

I am sorry, I fear I may have digressed somewhat. However, hopefully this has given you some idea of my character and my motivation.

Here are my personal details:

Name: Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

Address: Hemlock Hall, Cold Harbour Lane, Gypping in the Marsh, Lincolnshire, UK

Telephone: 01927 58367

The infrastructure here at Hemlock Hall is rather antiquated, and I do not have a fax machine. I trust that emailing documents to me will not be a problem.

I trust that this is all the information you need from me in order for us to move forward.

I look forward to receiving the death certificate and fund origin certificate from you as soon as possible, and to working closely with you on this venture to ensure a successful and profitable outcome for both of us.

Best regards,

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

Sent: Fri, 07 Nov 2003 09:52:26

Nkonye,

Thank you for your email, and for sending me the text of the application form which I am to send to the bank. I must say, I am most impressed with the speed and efficiency with which you are conducting this business. Most commendable.

I have had a most disagreeable night. We had a violent storm last night, and the wind blew some more slates off the roof of the east wing, where the roof is in a particularly poor condition. As a result of this, the rain poured into one of the guest bedrooms. My manservant, Winton, alerted me to the problem at 2am, and we spent the rest of the night teetering on the top of ladders in the midst of the gales, patching up the hole in the roof with a tarpaulin as the winds whipped around us. I am sad to say that the ingress of water has severely damaged the 18th Century handmade Chinese wallpaper in the bedroom, possibly irrevocably. This is a disaster – the wallpaper is practically irreplaceable. Such are the trials and tribulations of looking after such a house.

But back to business. Before I send the application form to the bank as you requested, could you confirm to me that the dead German’s name is correct? He is named on the form as “Athur Billings”, but I have never come across anyone called “Athur”. And with my family history I am well-used to people with long and unusual names. Should this be “Arthur Billings”? Please confirm. Could you also confirm that the name of the bank official I am to send this to is “Sir Yao Ngoran”?

As for the rest of the form, I will correct the rest of the spelling mistakes it contains, then print it off and forward it on to the bank as soon as you get back to me.

You asked for my photograph. Of course, my dear fellow. I have attached it to this email. I am the gentleman in the centre of the photograph, which was taken earlier this year at an awards ceremony at Cleethorpes University, our local establishment of learning, which was founded by my ancestor, the third Earl. My family has always maintained close links with the University, and in recognition of this, I am honoured to hold the hereditary position of the University’s Grand Wazoo.

I look forward to receiving your own photograph in return, my dear fellow. Tell me also, what is your first name?

Best regards,

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

Please I am very sorry for the late response to your mail, at least you suppose know the nature of my job. Since we are attending to so many clients in the bank, that is the reason why I delay to get back to you.

Again, I am very sorry for the disaster that happened yesterday night in your city, but I believe when good thing and blessings coming on somebody’s way, there will be many temptations, but we must overcome all and achieve our goal, so do not worry about the incidence that happened yesterday night and be a man, because I believe very soon you must surely restored every thing back in abundantly.

Please regarding the application form I sent to you, you should bear in mind that here is a French speaking country, so you have to bear with us.

Here is the correct name to late deceased, MR ARTHUR BILLINGS, and the name of the bank official is SIR YAO NGORAN.

So you can print it now and fax it to the bank immediately, as I will be sending you the copy of my picture, in fact yours is nice and I will like to have your personal picture also.

Nkonye,

Thank you for your email, and for responding, eventually, to my queries. Now that you have answered them, I shall engage Winton’s assistance immediately and we shall print out, sign and rescan the form. Winton understands modern technology far better than I do. I have trouble sometimes understanding how the system of bells and wires that I use to summon the servants works.

You must be having some difficulty with technology yourself – the attachment you sent me was a blank document. Please resend your picture.

As soon as Winton has helped me to scan the form back into the computer, I shall email it to the fellow at the bank as you requested.

I am afraid that I will be unable to devote much of my time to this endeavour over the coming weekend. My dear wife, Lady Murray, has one of her distant aunts, Lady Godiva, visiting, so our time will be spent entertaining her in the manner to which she is accustomed. Winton has been airing one of the guest suites in the east wing this afternoon in preparation for her arrival – not the one affected by last night’s leak, of course. I only hope that the old dear does not find her rooms too draughty – this is not a warm house, and she has a tendency not to wear enough clothes. If she will insist on sitting around the place wearing next to nothing, what can we do if she complains about the cold?

Ah, I can hear Winton’s footsteps approaching along the corridor now. The system of bells and wires that was installed by the 14th Earl is magnificent. I have only to tug Winton’s cord a couple of times and the man comes almost instantly.

I sincerely hope that you have a splendid weekend, my dear fellow, and I look forward to receiving your picture.

Nkonye,

Thank you for sending me your photograph. I must say, you look like a jolly chap.

I trust that you had an enjoyable weekend. Lady Godiva arrived at Hemlock Hall on Saturday, and as expected, she immediately started to complain that it wasn’t warm enough. I pointed out to her, as I always do, that most people tend to wear more clothes, especially at this time of year, but she completely disregarded me and continued to moan about the temperature all weekend. Winton made a roaring fire in her bedroom on Saturday night, but that still wasn’t enough to satisfy the old girl. Lady Murray and I sighed with relief when she left on Sunday.

On a more positive note, Sunday was the day of the annual Gypping in the Marsh Autumn Fete, at which the vicar of St Mary’s, Parson Snows, had asked me to judge the two main competitions of the day: Cock of the Year, and Baps of the Year.

Gypping in the Marsh is famed throughout the area for the quality of its cockerels. Local farmers have bred them for centuries, and the Gypping Cock is renowned as one of the finest breeds available. It has a particularly elaborate set of tail feathers. So, midway through the afternoon I judged the Cock of the Year competition. It was a sight to warm the cockles of one’s heart, to see so many local farmers standing in a line, proudly holding their cocks in their hands. After examining them closely, I finally judged Farmer Palmer’s cock to be the finest in the show, and he looked on with immense pride as I handed him a rosette.

After judging the cockerels, it was the ladies’ turn, as I judged the Baps of the Year competition. The ladies of Gypping in the Marsh have baked a uniquely-shaped type of soft bread roll for more years than anyone cares to remember, and they compete ferociously each year to show that their baps are finer than anyone else’s. When the judging commenced, the ladies stood in a line with their baps proudly on display. After examining and nibbling each of the ladies’ baps in turn, I pronounced Mrs Huntley’s to be the finest baps I had ever seen.

I expect that I shall hear from the bank sometime today. I will contact you as soon as I have heard from them, my dear fellow.

I have a bad news from my wife this morning, I just received a telephone call from the hospital telling me how my dear wife had a fatal accident after she dropped my son in his school this morning on her way coming back home.

According to the eyed witness, there is a big lorry from a bending corner which was unable to control from driver as the lorry failed brake and hit the bottom of the vehicle as my wife can not be able to control her steering any longer and droved to a corvet, which her car tumbled twice.

In fact my brother I am writing this mail with tears rowling out on my face as I am totally confused I don’t know what to do now, you need to see how my dear wife is lying in the hospital with blood all over her body, in fact am finish if I should loose her, because I am so much afraid on her condition.

This is was what delay me from writing you this morning to know if the bank has contacted you for the immediate transfer of the fund to your account since you told me that you have send the application form to the bank, please you have to bear in mind that you are the person in position and access to this deposited money in my bank, as to feeding me back with the development between you and the bank, because you are now the beneficiary to the deposited fund.

Sent: Mon, 10 Nov 2003 11:32:56

Nkonye,

What thoroughly disagreeable news. I am shocked. I am aghast. You have my sympathy. I have told Winton your news, and he asks me to inform you that he too is shocked and aghast, and that you have his sympathy too.

Believe me, I can fully appreciate how you must be feeling right now. Lady Murray had a fall whilst badger hunting last year when her horse threw a shoe, and she was quite badly bruised. It took days for the bruises to go down, during which time she was quite unable to appear in public. It was a most vexatious time for both of us, especially as it coincided with the annual Hunt Ball, which Lady Murray had to miss.

Oh, Winton has just asked me to point out that it may be worthwhile asking the hospital staff to clean the blood from your wife’s body. Cleanliness is next to godliness, as I’m sure you know. Mind you, by the sound of things, your wife is probably just about as close to god as it’s possible to get at the moment without actually dying.

On a more positive note, maybe you should look on the bright side, my dear fellow. After all, not many people survive fatal accidents in the way that your wife has done. I only hope that complications do not set in after the accident.

Presuming that your wife is not dead when you reach the hospital, please pass on my kindest regards. And Winton’s regards too. That is if she can hear you – I suppose she may be in a coma.

Winton and I will say an extra little prayer tonight for you and your dear lady wife. We will pray to the Lord that she makes a full and complete recovery, and that she does not wake up as a mindless crippled cabbage who has to spend the rest of her life drooling in her bed as you feed her liquidised food through a straw.

Still no word from the bank. No matter – I am sure they are busy people. I will contact you as soon as I hear from them my dear fellow.

Sent: Mon, 10 Nov 2003 14:17:51

Nkonye,

I hope you found your wife in a good condition when you visited her in the hospital. Do let me know how she is, there’s a good chap.

This will cheer you up. I have received an email from Ngoran at the bank. I have to admit, I don’t quite understand it all, but basically it seems that Ngoran wants me to send him a certificate of legality, that poor German fellow’s death certificate, and a sworn affidavit from the Federal High Court of Justice in the Ivory Coast.

Ngoran mentioned that I would have to travel to the Ivory Coast to sort things out. This shouldn’t prove to be a problem. A trip to somewhere warm would be rather pleasant at this time of year. It would also be interesting to see Abidjan myself: the 7th Earl made a fortune trading slaves out of West African ports, and I’m sure that Abidjan was one of them. I’ll have to check the family records to make sure. Disagreeable business, slavery, of course, but the fact remains that my family did rather well out of it. Oh well, that’s all in the past now.

Ngoran did mention that I could employ the services of a lawyer, but I see no need for that. I’ve not trusted lawyers ever since I lost my driving licence ten years ago. I paid through the nose for the best lawyer I could find, but I still got a three-year ban, a hefty fine and a suspended sentence. Still can’t see what all the fuss was about. After all, the girl I ploughed into eventually regained partial use of her legs. It wasn’t that bad.

Well, I assume that you have the documents I need to send on to this Ngoran fellow. Forward them on to me as soon as you can, there’s a good chap, and we can put this matter to bed.

Winton sends his best wishes to you and your wife, by the way.

Best regards,

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping,

It has not be easy for me I just came back from the hospital where my dear wife is lying without help.

Again on the other side I feel very happy to hear that the bank has contacted you for the immediate transfer of this fund to your account, that is what I have been praying ever since I have been gathering this informations about this deposited fund in my bank.

Please my dear brother, I want you to follow up the instructions from the bank to avoid any mistake, as they demanded the required documents for the immediate transfer of this fund, contact the bank immediately and ask them to give you the attorney contact so that you will contact him for the requested documents from the bank to avoid delay, because this fund is a huge amount of money and it will need those document to back it up and also prove you the real beneficiary of the fund.

Once again, I want you follow up the bank instruction for us to achieve this goal without any problem, so that I will send to you the death certificate of the late deceased which I have here with me, but you need to get the rest through a help of an attorney from the Federal High Court, and furthermore you can as well tell the attorney to represent you in signing the fund release order in the bank, as I believe if you visit here the bank may ask you more questions that you may not answer and it will stop the transfer, as I told you earlier that I don’t want them to know about my involvement in this regard.

Then after the money get transferred to your account, you will visit here so that I and you will proceed to your country immediately, as to avoid any delay, because you must prepare for your coming arrangement which will take some time and also cause delay in this transfer, if really you want to come and even if you come here you must need assistance from a lawyer to get the documents from the High Court, that is why I suggest you should not bother to come at this stage till we have this money transfer to your account, because that is the most important thing now as I want everything to be done as soon as possible, and after you are very much free to travel down and spent little time with me and my family.

Please my dear brother, I want you to contact the bank immediately you receive this mail and tell them to give you the attorney contact, so that you will contact him immediately and tell him to assist you in getting the required documents and submit it to the bank for the transfer on your behalf.

Remember, you have to mention the name of the requested document, but do not mention the death certificate since I will send it to you to send to the attorney as soon as he get the remaining ones, so that he will submit all to the bank.

I am waiting for your response as soon as you contact the bank and are through with attorney.

I want you to call me immediately on phone as you know the predicament am going through at this moment.

Remain yours sincerely,

Subject: I am confused now

Sent: Mon, 10 Nov 2003 16:10:09

Nkonye,

Thank you for your email. I am glad to hear that your wife is not dead yet. Tell her to keep up the good work – I am sure she will pull through. Spent the afternoon castrating rams on the estate with Heathcliffe the Estate Manager, so I’ve seen a fair bit of blood myself today.

Now then, Nyonke, you must be strong for your wife. A stiff upper lip, that’s what you need. A stiff upper lip has stood my family in good stead for generations. Well, that and a huge amount of land and money.

Now then, I’m afraid you have confused me over this fund transfer business. You told me last Thursday that you would send me a death certificate and a fund origin certificate. But I haven’t received either from you yet. Now, this fellow at the bank tells me that I need to send him a death certificate, a certificate of legality, and a sworn affidavit from the Federal High Court of Justice in the Ivory Coast. He doesn’t even mention the fund origin certificate. Do I need that or not? I trust you can see why I am confused.

On top of this, I’m rather confused over our arrangements. You said in your last email that once the money is transferred into my account, I should come over to the Ivory Coast and then the two of us would both proceed straight back to this country. Where’s the sense in that? Seems like a bit of a wasted trip on my behalf if you ask me.

However, with all this fuss and bother over documents, I can see why you think I should get myself a good lawyer. With that in mind, Winton has suggested that I engage the services of a local lawyer: a Mr Welsby, of the firm Elton & Welsby. Apparently he is thoroughly decent and honest, and also charges a very fair fee. Winton says he used him some years ago after an unfortunate misunderstanding involving a schoolboy and a courgette, and Welsby ensured that all charges were dropped. What do you think? Should I contact Welsby and get him to move into action on our behalf?

Now, please get back to me and clarify exactly what the position is regarding all these confusing documents. I will contact the bank and Mr Welsby as soon as I hear back from you.

Best regards,

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

PS. Please do not worry yourself about secrecy – I will not let on to the bank that you have anything to do with this whole matter. I am the very soul of discretion.

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping,

I received your mail, but it seems you do not understand me very well regarding the last mail I sent to you, nothing seem to be confusing on this issue.

Now my brother, I told you earlier that I will send you the death certificate and fund origin certificate as I promised, then the certificate of legality and sworn affidavit will provide through a help of attorney here in Cote d’Ivoire because the fund was originate here in this country.

Again, the reason while I made mention of you coming down here as soon as the fund gets transferred to your account, is for you to meet my family and have a very good time with us as I believe that we are one family now, but if you can not make it better, immediately the fund get transferred you will then send me some money from the total sum for my travelling to meet with you, since I don’t have any money left with me, couple with the predicament am going through, that is the reason why I want us to get everything done as soon as possible and have this fund transferred to your account without much time to delay.

Please, I want you to contact the bank as I told you before so that they will provide lawyer for you in this country who will represent you in all the endorsement and as well get the other remaining documents and submit it to the bank immediately, because it will be a waste of money and time if you should get a lawyer from your country to represent you, as the fund was originated here in Cote d’Ivoire, and even if you do that in your country, you must surely get a another lawyer here who will represent because this fund is a huge amount of money. Even if the bank did not suggest you should get a lawyer I personally will advise you to do that, as to avoid any mistake, as I told earlier that I don’t want anybody to know my involvement in this transaction, that is the reason why I support you should get a lawyer here who will stand on your behalf.

So my brother go ahead and follow every instruction from the bank, no matter the cost as I believe that it will not cost much, because the most important thing is the death certificate and the fund origin which I will send to you now, as I have spent so much money in getting it, which I believe that the rest document will not cost anything compare to how much money I have spent to get these two documents, which is the most documents that prove you the beneficiary of the fund.

So contact the bank immediately and ask them to give you the contact of the attorney so that by tomorrow or next this fund will be transferred to your account, but bear in mind that you have every right to deduct any incurable expenses you made on this regard to withdraw it as soon as this fund arrive in your account, like your telephone/fax bills you can as well keep the receipt of it, as I have kept the record of all I have spent so far in this transaction, to prove my sincerity to you when meet with you in your country.

Finally my dear brother, I am sending you these documents with the trust and confidence I have on you, hoping that you will not disappoint me at this stage, because these two documents am sending to you now proved you the real beneficiary of this fund, that is the reason I delay to send it to you till I know your capability to carry this transaction with me.

Now I have imposed all my hope and trust on you as one family, as you can see the stress am facing at moment, as am waiting for this money will be transferred to your account immediate, so that I will take good care of my wife condition as I have pay a lot of money and right now I received a call from the same hospital which they still demand extra $1,700 for more medication as she has lost so much blood.

Now I am total confused because I don’t know who I will run to, as I have imposed all my hope on this money to get transferred to your account so that I will save the life of my darling wife.

Await your urgent response as soon as possible.

Remain yours sincerely,

Thank you for your email, and for clearing up matters so concisely. My head was full of castrated rams yesterday afternoon, which probably explains why I found your last email rather confusing.

Thank you also for the documents which you sent. I think I now understand what I have to do.

Ngoran,

Thank you for your email regarding the transfer of funds from the late Arthur Billings’ account into my own.

Further to your request, I attach two documents: Mr Billings’ death certificate, to prove that he is actually dead, and a fund origin certificate. I’m not too sure what the second document proves to be honest – my French is not too good.

Please note that Arthur’s first name is spelled incorrectly on both documents. I hope that this does not matter. Arthur would not have minded.

Now then, you say that you also need a sworn affidavit from the Federal High Court of Justice in your country. I have been advised by a third party that it will be easiest for me to obtain this document with the assistance of a lawyer. You have suggested a Mr Adama Sangare. I will contact this chappie immediately and see if we can come to some arrangement.

Incidentally, I would like to make it absolutely clear that I have no connection whatsoever with a Dr Nkonye Akubia. This man, whoever he may be, has nothing whatsoever to do with this whole business.

Sent: Tue, 11 Nov 2003 09:50:07

Sangare,

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Lord Murray, 18th Earl of Gypping. I am currently engaged in arranging the transfer of funds from the bank account of a late relative, Mr Arthur Billings, into my own bank account. Mr Billings was a German citizen resident in the Ivory Coast. I am now Mr Billings’ closest surviving relative.

I have been conversing with a chap called Ngoran, the Director of something or other at the Banque Internationale de l’Afrique de l’Ouest. I sent Ngoran Mr Billings’ death certificate and a fund origin certificate today, but apparently I also need to obtain a sworn affidavit from the Federal High Court of Justice in your country. Not sure exactly what one of these things is, but this is where you come in: Ngoran has recommended that I use your services to obtain this document.

Now then. I don’t trust you lawyers to tell the truth. I had a bit of a bad experience a few years ago with one who turned out to be as useful as a chocolate teapot. Hopefully you will be different. What I’d like to know, before I engage your services, is details of your qualifications and experience, and details of your charging structure. What is this going to cost me? My butler, Winton, has had dealings with lawyers before, and tells me I should enquire whether you charge on a pro-contum basis, or whether your fees are to be inter-spatulum?

Get back to me as soon as you can, there’s a good man.

Best regards,

Lord Murray, Earl of Gypping

Nkonye,

A quick email to let you know that I have contacted the bank this morning and passed on the documents you sent me. I have also contacted the lawyer they recommended, a chap called Sangare. Winton raised an eyebrow slightly when I told him I was not intending to employ Welsby’s services in this matter, but I am sure that Sangare and I will be able to do business. I will keep Welsby in reserve, as it were, just in case this Sangare fellow turns out to be unsuitable.

Glad to hear that your wife is hanging on in there. Give her my best when you see her next.

Winton had a bit of a to-do with the coalman this morning. The chap who normally delivers our coal is apparently ill, so we had a new chap arrive this morning, who didn’t know the ropes at all. He turned up and started unloading sacks of coal in the middle of the rear courtyard, rather than taking them down the passageway at the back of the house, where the coal bunkers are located. At this point, Winton, who was busy polishing the silverware in the kitchens, caught sight of what the man was doing. He raced outside instantly and accosted the man. When Winton told the coalman that he was unloading the coal in the wrong place, the coalman quite lost his temper, and a blazing row ensued. Winton, who is a large man, resolved the situation by grabbing hold of the brute roughly and taking him up the back passage, despite the man’s protestations. The fellow then emptied his sacks, to Winton’s satisfaction.

I shall keep you informed of developments, my dear chap.

I am grateful that you responded to me so quickly. However, hold your horses, man. You have not dealt with any of the questions I raised in my last email. I must have answers to these questions before I go ahead with this transaction and agree to using your services.

To reiterate the points I raised in my last email:

  • I asked you for details of your qualifications and experience.
  • I asked you for details of your charging structure. Do you charge on a pro-contum basis, or are your fees inter-spatulum? Or perhaps you charge according to Doonican’s inverse sliding scale?

Kindly answer my questions. Then we can move forward.

Three points.

First, kindly address me in the correct manner. The correct form of address is “Lord Murray”.

Second, the lawyer you recommended does not seem very good at answering questions. This does not bode well. If he does not start doing as I ask of him, I will be forced to move forward with a lawyer in this country.

Third, your CAPS LOCK key appears to be stuck on. Turn it off at once, man. Do you not know that it is rude to write COMPLETELY IN CAPITAL LETTERS?

Good morning my brother, am sorry for not getting back to you yesterday as I was busy going round the whole place to see if I could be able to raise money from friends to take care of the hospital bill, but all was no avail.

So you have to keep on contacting the bank and the lawyer so that they will know how urgency and serious you are for them to haste up with every arrangement, because all my hope now is lying on this fund to be transferred to your account so that I will take good care of my wife. Up till yesterday she could be able to raise her eye, in fact my brother I am afraid on the condition of my wife as her condition seems to be worse, as am praying day and night for her quick recovery, which I will like you and your family to join me on my daily prayers for my wife healing.

Please, I will stop here and rush to the hospital and be back in 1 hour time.

Hope to hear a positive response on the conclusion between you and the bank so that they will effect the transfer immediately without time delay.
