What does he mean my telephone number won't connect? I'm sure the telephone number I gave him, the FBI headquarters in Washington DC, works just fine. I guess he just didn't call it. The reality is that he wants me to spend my money on the phone call because he is probably spending all his at the Internet cafe sending out emails.
Make a hotel reservation for him? WTF is thinking? What day is he planning on arriving and all that good shit? This guy really has no clue.
Here is my reply to him.
Dear Partner Ibru,
This is conformation I got the email you sent to me. I am excited to learn that the deal is going to go through. I am as confused as a blind possum in a hen house why you couldn't get through to my phone number. It is my work telephone number, and I'm sure it works. Just in case I gave you an incorrect number, here is it again. I am also including my fax number in case you need to send me some documents or stuff like that.
Tel: (202) 324-7126
Fax: (202) 324-0920
Is this the number I gave you before? I would call you but I can't. Like I said before, my home telephone has been disconnected, so I have to used my telephone at work to make calls. I can receive incoming calls there, but they would fire me for sure if I tried to sneak a long distance call to you.
As far as setting up your visit here. I travel a lot and I need to wait until the deal is set in stone afor I do that. You see, I'm not sure where I will going to be when this deal goes down. I travel a lot on business you know.
One more thing. Elly Mae says hi, and wants to know if your married. She thinks you look very handsome in your picture and would like to get to know you when you get here. I'm attaching some pictures. One is of the family and two is of Elly Mae so you can get a good look what we all looks like.
Your partner forever,
Since we are bound to be good friends, can I call you Willy or Billy or Bill or Will or something besides William. William seems so formal for pals. You can call me Milly if you want to.
These are the pictures I sent him.
