Where Mr Newbery has some awful news!

Dear Mr Ariyo Jacob,

I have awful news.

I have just been informed that the transfer of money did not proceed.

Apparently there was some irregularity with the account number.

Please advise me of the correct account number AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.


Dear J. Cosmo Newbery

I got your mail this morning and was surprise at the development.

I have asked my lawyer, Barrister Muktar Umar to go the bank head office immedaitely for the correct bank account or another account details.

However, it is my strong opinion that you transfer the money, through: MONEY GRAM money transfer in two transactions of US$8,000 x 8,000. In the name of the lawyers secretary, MR. SAMUEL O. IKEBUIFE, Lagos Nigeria.

This is in due consideration of the time available besides the fact that my lawyer will confirm the transfer same day and deposit with Ecobank and obtain receipt of payment same day. I will call you to inform you further as soon as the lawyer comes back from the bank head office.

please kindly respond to this message immediately.

Thanks while expecting your urgent response.

Dear Mr Ariyo Jacob,

I do not understand what you mean by a MONEY GRAM. What is it? How do I send it? The money is in the bank and will have to be sent from the bank. The banks do not open again until Monday.

The Ecobank people have pointed out an error in the account number. Barring further instructions from you I will correct the account number and resend the money on Monday to the account at Bankers Trust.

This delay is really most regrettable.

I trust the rest of the transaction will go more smoothly!

J. Cosmo Newbery.
