of wacky disease.

nigeria whereas they perport to want to buy stuff but then just
scam-scam-skimmy-scam around.

How are you today? I am good, though a wild baboon ran out in front of my
car today and I accidently squished it…. It was sad and traumatic, but
now I have a lovely feast of baboon tartar to look forward to tonight..
Mmm… Dee-lish!

Anyway, I charged your card $3,000 for the Lomo Cameras…

Hope that’s okay….. Got an approval code so we’re good to go… Let me
know whats next.

Your new friend

Ahoy Gilbert!

How’s everything in Lumpkin-Land today, hmmm?

That’s mighty fine and dandy of you to agree to the 3k figure on the
Lomo’s… I had to pad the sum a bit for a little C&H this week, if you
know what I mean…. I will confess to you that I do have a bit of the
taste for coke and hookers right now…. Damn! Boy, it does get
expensive…. You know it.

So thanks Lumpy, Mighty neighborly of ya.

Lets see……. Geeze, Gilbert Lumpkins! I do love that name… I hope
you aren’t sore if I declare it sounds like one of them rascally diseases
folks talk so much about these days…. What are your two brother’s
names??? Hodgekins Lymphoma and Lou Gehrig?

Hoooo Boy, Lumpkins!! My, but aint you a character??

DHL or UPS, heck you decide…. I hope you know the $3,000 I charged your
card doesn’t include shipping…. Do you have a DHL or UPS account? If
not I will have to charge your card an extra $1,000 for shipping.

Please advise….

With Stern regards,

Schmuckily yours,

shipping…. Thanks for your flexibility on the price gouge… It should

really and truly do…. I wuv you… So thanky!!!!

My phone number is 503 890 1317.. Feel free to call.. I’m open to “voice
discussin” any old time… In fact I’m a’voice discussin a lot these days
with plenty of folks about plenty-o-tings man.. In fact I was just voice
discussin with my neighbors wife the other day about a little pony ride I
was gonna give her.. That is until her fat husband meandered into our zone
and the voice discussin soon turned to naught, not naughty… Hoooh buoy!

So what ya wanna buy from me next?

over-charged you for:

Subject: Re: Top:Urgent Corretion Needed.

Dear Gilbert:


I dunno what you are talking about, let me double check with UPS.

Yer new best friend,
-patreeek !

Thanks for your Co-operation and support.

I have just called you Three Time now and i could not hear from you very well
what’s wrong. You were playing Music.

Sorry to informed you that you send my Order to Wrong Address In Poland Or U.S
I will want you to stop that now and resend me the Item to the Following
Address below in NIGERIA.

Contact Person :GANIU





Kindly correct that mistake now and urgently get back to me asap.

Thanks and Awaiting for your urgent Response.



Dear Lumpy….

First please allow me to point out that you failed to address me as ”
Patreeek” in your last e-mail… Therefore as agreed upon here-to-fore I
will be assessing you a $24.00 penalty and charge the $24.00 to your credit
card… Keep it up and soon I will have enough money to buy me a whole new
case of ice-cream bars and nutty-buddies of which I will remember you fondly
while I eat them with their cool ice-creamy good-ness and nutty chocolately
noughatty delish-ish-ness-ousity…

So thanks, but why did you forget? I need my business associates to be
SHARP and on the ball… You need to have your ‘game-face’ on at all times
when you deal with me Gilbert, or I will cease doing business with you. I
can’t have my people forgetting to address me as Patreeek, now can I? Of
course I can’t so BAD…. BAD LUMPY… Do I need top give you a spanking
on the bottom? :)

Now, the issue at handy, the handy issue…… I did not receive any phone
calls from you….. Not sure who or where you called but it wasn’t me, get
your shit together Lumpo.

I’m confused about where you are saying I sent this package… Are you
saying it is going to Poland, or the U.S. ? Rest assured I have no
business dealings in Poland…. Though I do love the borscht that come out
of Poland…. I particuarly savor the succulence of the 1987 beet
harvest… Now THAT’S some great ass Borscht my friend.

Poland? What the fuck are you talking about Lumpkins? That’s in Eastern
Europe you know. I sent your goods to Nigeria not Poland…. Double check
there must be a mistake on your end. Another example of you not having you
game face on. Do I need to have a Bonobo Chimpanzee pay you a visit and
lick your eyelids until you come to your sense? Or will stop this silliness
right now and play ball with me?

Yours with delightful horse-radsih,
-patreeek !
