My emails are in blue, and Raph Amelu's emails are in red. Comments are italised and in green.

The actual process that I used to snare this scammer is a new one and since we don't want the lads to get wind of it, my initial email hasn't been included. Let's just say that he quickly changed his name after hearing from me.

Hello Brother,

That is no problem. Please find attached the required forms. As I said before, we need every answer filled in and when I get it back I'll send to the Fathers.

I hope you're still enthusiastic about this donation.

I look forward to your reply.

God bless you,

Rev. Kevin Mingeeater.

It's only now that our dear friend Raph, or shall I say 'Iysmel Ofcum' see the kind of church he is dealing with here. He's already lied so will he back off now or will greed keep him going? By the way, can you see that tiny unintelligable writing underneath the title 'Intelligence Test' on page 2? Well, here's a closeup...

I find it disgusting that he wants to rip off a member of the cloth. Well, with the activities my church are openly encouraging, this bait will hopefully produce some hilarious yet disgusting results. Watch this space...

I look forward to receiving them soon.

Hello,

I cannot fill in the form for you since it needs to be signed by you. Father Richard has made it quite clear that if we don't receive the filled in form (scan in the pages when you've answered the questions and email them to me at ***@***.co.uk ) soon then the donation is going to have to go back into the account. I'm sorry, but you really are wasting a lot of time here!

Hello,

Where did the $50 charge come from? You never had this kind of trouble before when sending me documents in the past so why now? I AM willing to help you out Iysmel, that's why we're planning to send you over the £150,000 as we agreed, but we can't unless you stop messing about and do what you've been promising to do for the last four weeks!

Now please kindly scan in the form and email it to me. If I don't receive it by the end of next week then we're going to be forced to cancel the deal and put the money back into the donations account for people who actually WANT it.

Bless you,

Rev. Kevin Mingeeater.

Hello,

No, that is not good enough Iysmel! Can you kindly please stop stalling, fill in the form, scan all three pages and email them back to me. You are wasting a LOT of time and Father Simmons is getting angry because the £150,000 is taking up a lot of space. If all three forms haven't been returned in full by Friday then the deal will have to be cancelled.

Come on Iysmel, you've been fully co-operative until now, what's happened? What exactly is this new project you talked about earlier?

How is your lover Brother Mycok Wreeks? Are you still together?

I look forward to receiving the form along with your reply.

God bless you,

Rev. Kevin Mingeeater.

Ahhh.... he's just thick. Time to give him some highly unethical help...

Hello,

A couple of people have complained about the Intelligence Test thing. I'm subtley trying to convince Father Simmons that it is not required but at the moment he is adamant.

Look, we've been in correspondance for some time now, and I feel that as well as it being a huge waste of both our times if the donation folded, I feel that you are truly a man of his word. Therefore, if you can promise not to let this outside our email conversations, I'll give you the answers...

The Capital of France is F

America gained independence in 1984

The current monarch of Great Britain is Queen Sarah Ferguson

The seven Dwarfs are Spot, Christmas, Angel, Menace, Mincer, Elephant and Randy

Nigerian is spelt N-I-J-E-E-R-I-E-N

A mole of moles can dig 43,653,453,465 holes.

Your email address is 'ask4raph2000@yahoo.com' but I don't know the password.

The four members of the Beatles are Bungle, Zippy, George and Jeffery.

Shindlers List was directed by Noel Edmonds.

Weird is spelt 'Wierd'.

The chicken crossed the road to get to the other side.

Noddy Holder was the lead singer in the Bay City Rollers.

Just make any name up for the 'Cartesium Dualism' question - I doubt very much that Fr. Simmons knows himself!

The Monty Python crew are Hugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb.

Please don't let anybody know that I helped you with this. It is considered greatly unethical within our church and I would surely get punished if any of my brothers found out. I'm doing it to help out a friend.

I look forward to receiving your forms soon.

God bless you,

Rev. Kevin.

He did okay, I guess. Unfortunately he got the following things wrong:

- His name. He's meant to be Iysmel Ofcum. Mind you, his gay lover is called Mycok Wreeks - maybe they got married?

- His lack of belief in Jesus. He's meant to be running a Christian church...

- Queen Sarah was meant to be Queen Sarah Ferguson

- He got the names of the seven dwarfs in the wrong order, and added Spot twice!

- He actually KNOWS the chicken joke!!!

- I said that Noddy was the lead singer in the Bay City Rollers, not the Bay City.

- He had a guess at Sting's name. I did not give him any clues.

- I told him to make up a name for the Cartesium Dualism question and he didn't.

The thing that amazes me was the fact that he so freely gave me his email address and the password to get into it. I tried it and the information was legit!! Now, before I go further I am aware that accessing other peoples email accounts without their consent is borderline illegal, but this man is a crook. He is trying to scam a church out of £150,000 here! The only reason I am accessing his account is to see if he has any victims, and to warn them if so.

He favours the lottery win and dying millionaire scams and at this moment he currently had four victims on the go. After a little intervention from me he should now have none. I will be stealthly watching his activities to make sure nobody else gets scammed by this individual.

But anyway, time to tell him where he's gone wrong...

Hello,

Thank you greatly for at last returning the forms. I have looked through it and there doesn't seem to be a problem so I will get them to Father Simmons as soon as possible.

One thing I did notice though was that the email address you put on the form was different to the email address you're using to contact me (***@***.com). I'm afraid that it is the correspondence email details we require. If you email them to me I'll change it on the form for you before I hand it in.

Thank you, and God bless you.

Rev. Kevin.

Right, this is make or break time. If he emails me the password for the email account he's using to scam me with then I've well and truly got him! All we can do is sit back and hope...

Hello,

I have received the form back from Father Simmons, and he has pointed out a couple of inconsistancies within your answers.

Why did you call yourself Iysmel Wreeks? You told me your name was Iysmel Ofcum and that your lover was called Mycok Wreeks. Did you two get married?

You're meant to be setting up a Christian chuch Iysmel, so why did you say on your form that you didn't believe in Jesus Christ?

However, all is not lost, and we do still want to send you the donation. However, Father Simmons now requires proof that you're a honest church preaching the joy of homosexuality and so is requesting a photo taken during one of your services. The photo doesn't have to be anything special, just you preaching to your followers with a large symbol of the Church of the ManPhallus behind you. Personally, I'd recommend having some kind of homosexual activity going on as well because such a thing would greatly please Father Simmons, and after what you said on your form you need him as happy as possible!

As soon as I receive your photo I will send it to Fr. Simmons. We do need to be quick though because pretty soon we'll be hitting the end of our financial year and will have to suspend all donations, and after everything we've gone through that would mean we've done nothing but waste our time.

I look forward to seeing you during your service!

Bless you,

Rev. Kevin.

Okay, now I'm pushing it! :-p

Hello,

God bless you.

What the hell are you talking about Iysmel? May I remind you that on your form you actually stated that you DIDN'T believe in Jesus Christ when you're meant to be running a Christian church out there! Why the hell do you think Father Simmons got so damn angry at you? Is it any wonder why he is having doubts about your authenticity? That was a stupid thing you did, Iysmel!

If we don't get these photos that prove to us that you really are a church of ManPhallus then you may as well kiss the £150,000 goodbye.

May God bless you,

Rev. Kevin.

why will such words come out of your mouth, i just wantted to convincefather simon that was why iwrote that i do not believe in christ, i did not want to fill the forms wrongly.\
you will hera from me, just tell father siomon that i will send him the picture of me preaching , but i can not send him my self practicing homosexality

my regards

Okay, so he tried to convince a Christian leader by telling him that he DIDN'T believe in Jesus Christ?? Time for a God-fearing slap!!!

Hello,

God bless you.

You've changed, Iysmel! Just what the hell is going on here? When you first contacted me you told me all about your openly gay lifestyle and how things were going on so well with your lover Mycok Wreeks. You told me that you had read one of our brochures and wanted to help preach the word of ManPhallus. You seemed so enthusiastic right up until we lost contact for a short while, now you seem a lot different.

Iysmel, you've sent us photos of you practising homosexuality with Mycok Wreeks in the past - that why we're so eager to donate £150,000 to your church!

As I said before, you greatly displeased Fr. Simmons by saying that you didn't believe in Jesus Christ. If a photo of you practising homosexuality isn't included with the photo of you preaching the word of ManPhallus then he will not allow such a donation to be released.

So it's your call Iysmel. We've gone through so much to get to this stage and this is the final step before Fr. Simmons will be convinced enough to donate the £150,000 to your church.

I look forward to receiving your photographs in the near future.

God bless,

Rev. Kevin.
