The following email by a fake lawyer "BARRISTER ADVOCATE VALERY PAGE" was sent from exactly the same email address as an earlier email by "Joe West (PAYMENT DIRECTOR)". Probably they are the same person:
Dear Client, We write to acknowledged the receipt of your email dated 9th of March 2005, and also keep you inform that the reason why we did not reply your email since that time was because we have been trying to negotiate with the bank if they can transfer your fund to your designated bank account with only the 50% provided by the lottery agency so that the transfer process can go ahead and you can pay them the fee latter and our balance but after your fund has been transfer to you but they gave a lot of reason why it can not be done that way, that you have to follow the procedure. Be aware also that the (EMU), is too large that they can not contact you or you contact them and they mainly deal directly with the bank and the banks deal with their clients as well, and even if we want to discus your case with them it will take at list four months before they will answer our case as they have so many banks and financial institutions on their awaiting list with different case to be resolve. Since it has come to this stage and the transfer process is taking longer than necessary and the bank shouldn't hold on to your fund longer than necessary, you have to pay the fee so that they can transfer your fund to you. Note that we can not assist financially as it is against this law firm policy to finance our client in a situation like this and also it is against Belgium law under ART .566, which prohibits prospect of financial gains in financing our client, and if we do they will think we did it because of financial interest and that may cost us our license as a legal representative. Though I do not wish that the bank should hold on to your fund longer than necessary and because of this law I can not personally assist you because it will reflect on my account details and that will cost me my whole carrier but since is like this now, I suggest you come up with something substantial from the remainder 50%, then I can talk to my wife to complete the rest but you have to come up with something reasonably substantial and when everything is don your fund is transferred to your account you know how to reward my wife. And please do not make any financial promises to me or my wife via email. I await your urgent response, Best Regards, BARR. ADV. VALERY PAGE) This communication is confidential to Barr.
