Bangkok Bob Studio Shots

I was looking at the pictures we took for the Bangkok Bob cover last year because the publisher of the German translation is looking at ideas for covers. They're great pictures, featuring my mate Andrew Yates and a top Thai model. Thought you might like to see a few!

A Clever Scam Letter. And A Blessing :-)

This just in!

I am Mrs. Connie Stevens I am a US citizen and i am 34 years
Old. I reside here in 108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas,
United States and i am thinking of relocating since I am now rich.
I am one of those that took part in the United Nations Compensation
program in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me. I had paid over
TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS while in the US, trying to get my
payment but all was to no avail.

So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my
compensation documents and I was directed to meet Mr Michael
McHale, who is the member of COMPENSATION PROGRAM COMMITTEE,
and i contacted him and he explained everything to me.
He said who ever is contacting us through emails are fake.
He also took me to the paying bank (ZENITH BANK) for the
claim of my compensation payment. Right now, i am the
happiest woman on earth because I have received my
compensation funds , Mr Michael McHale showed me the full
information of those that are yet to receive their payments
and i saw your email as one of the beneficiaries who have
not yet received the payment under CASE FILE 54AC003 and
that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with
those people. They are not with your fund, they are only
making money off you.

Therefore, i would advise you to contact Mr Michael McHale
for assistance and inform him that your CASE FILE is
54AC003. Contact him directly via the information below.

Name : Mr Michael McHale
Phone: +234-706-793-8229.

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are
contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them
because it is not with them. They are only taking advantage
of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.

The only money i paid after i met Mr Michael McHale was just
the bank transfer charges, which is only normal and
legitimate as it is in all banks in the world. So please
take note of that. Mr Michael McHale shall ensure that you
deal directly with the bank(ZENITH BANk).

Once again stop contacting those people. I advise that you
contact Mr Michael McHale so that he can help you in the
collection of your fund instead of dealing with those liars
that will be turning you around asking for different kind of
money to complete your transaction.

Thank you and be blessed.
Mrs. Connie Stevens

More Money From Africa - I Am So Blessed!

This just in -

From the desk of Dr.BENJAMIN NOAH
Bill and exchange manage
Foreign remittance dept.
Bank of Africa (Boa)
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso

Dear friend,

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of the bank of Africa.This message might meet you in utmost surprise, however, it's just my.urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for thisafter much consideration i decided to write you since I cannot be able to see you face to face at first.

I will like you to take your time to read this mail carefully. I did not mean to embarrass you with my business proposal but i seriously need your assistance. Please this is a confidential matter and it requires urgency. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of u.s$12.5m dollars (twelve million five hundred thousand usd) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family on monday,31 july,2000, in a plane crash , since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his or her next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that his supposed next of kin died along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery, i now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. I therefore agree that 45% of this money will be for you as foreigner partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 45% would be for me. There after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.

Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating,your Profession private telephone and fax number and Age your name for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully
