Previously we discovered that banks in Sengal make extensive use of AOL accounts for any confidential financial transactions and received a second photo from scammer Ziva Abiya, but it occurs to me that was because Eval Hood had neglected to send his own as requested. Never mind, a quick Google Image search for Thunderbirds feature film Evil Hood star Ben Kinsgley and we’re all “folroloqacious” again…

Subject: Re: PLEASE SEND THIS LETTER TO THE BANK
My dusky beauty,
It warms my heart to have such a folroloqacious response to my e-mail from you and I have executed your request to the bank this very morning.
My excitement is tinged with caution however, as I have previously mentioned I attempted to contact the Reverend Father via the e-mail address you gave me, however he has chosen not to reply. This is of concern to me as I increasingly feel that he wishes you ill in order to best obtain your late father’s monies to continue his ministries towards the refugees of his camp. Once I urge you to give highest regard to your safety and in light of recent allegations regarding the hairy cornflake himself, Dave Lee Travis, do not allow yourself to be in a position alone with Father Henry during your thrice daily visits to his office as it is clear that the insidious web of James Savile is spread wider than could ever have been anticipated.
Your safety all things is utmost to me and if my suspicions regarding the ominous silence of the Reverend Father and refusal to assure me of his intent towards you are indeed borne out I would gladly make any donation to his charities in the name of my late wife to ensure that he not try to, in the parlance of such vile men, Fix It For You as you remind me so much of her and wish your womanhood to remain unsullied until such time as we can be together my dearest…
Oh yeah. “Ominous silence” I bet that prompts a response. And by ‘response’ I mean ‘request for money’…

I AM WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU,
For anyone in the least bit doubt this is clearly a different person entirely from the one pretending to be Ziva because this one types all in capitals and she doesn’t. That’s how you can tell. Actually looking at the subject line and the way Ziva’s name is in proper case and I do think two different scammers have collaborated here, one pasting in the detail to the pre-written reply. Ziva must be younger than Hood assumed because now she’s in an orphanage, but the good Reverend is still happy to have her leave the country with this complete stranger for the bargain fee of $270. This e-mail and this next one are sent in rapid succession, but apparently there was a major power cut at the woman’s hostel/refugee camp/orphanage in-between…
