Kla'atu, United Planets Refugee Camp Lagos, Antares Prime.
I am Kla'atu, eldest son of the late president of the Antarean Planetary Alliance. You may be aware of the financial dispute between my family and the present civilian Government.
Which is why, my good friend, I am asking for your humble and confidential assistance to take custody of AT$ 30,000,000 (THIRTY MILLION ANTAREAN DOLLARS) which my late father secretly deposited off planet. Myself and my mother will give 20% to the fellow helping us claim this very big consignment.
This letter will come to you as big surprise but rest assured, dear friend, your status as capable Godly personality is prominently listed in many Alliance directories. Hence I deem it fit to confide in you.
I am presently in refugee camp here on Antares Prime and can be reached on V-mail:
Now, be advised, my friend, that in line with our operational master plan for this our mutual benefit business, your utmost confidentiality and secrecy is highly required.
My warmest regards to you and your many families,
Mr. Patrick Flower, The Cedars, Little Sowerby, ENGLAND.
Dear Mr. Atu,
I was very surprised to receive your V-mail. Even more surprised to hear that my name is well known on Antares Prime, never having visited your fine planet.
Where exactly is the money located? I fear unless it is very close to Little Sowerby, my assistance will prove of little help. I don't get about much since my retirement and rural public transport is not what it used to be.
Mr. Patrick Flower
Kla'atu, United Planets Refugee Camp
Dear friend Patrick,
Top of the day and thank you very much for V-mail received.
Rest assured that the little Sowerby is indeed very very close to Security Company where money is held. So close, my friend Patrick, that all business can be transacted from the insides of your very comfortable home.
Please, my good friend, assist us in this our mutual benefit business. 20% of THIRTY MILLION ANTAREAN DOLLARS will find you a very big man in little Sowerby.
Looking forward to receiving your many hands of co-operation,
