Evenin’ all. Here we go again with some more long distance romancing. This is an email from favour’s “lawyer” and again I wish I could post photos direct as illustrating his credentials as a lawyer was a photo of what looks like some crappy paperweight containing a golf ball in a glass and stamped on the golf ball the legend “Legal Eagle”…

P.O BOX. 31894,
108 RUE AMADOU NDOYE DAKAR SENEGAL,
Good afternoon BarristerAlex,
Thank you for responding to me so quickly, I am pleased to see how keen you are to set me up. Thank you also for making everything absolutely clear to me re all the costs. It’s refreshing to see such transparency, BarristerAlex. I mean, over here, when we get, say, an electricity bill or something, you cannae make head nor tail of them. Day rates, night rates, standing charges and christ knows what formula they use for actually calculating your consumption and final bill. At least I know exactly where I stand with you so once again, thank you.
Now, I’m a little wary of sending money via the internet as you never know if there are some dodgy Russians lurking with hacking software or something so if it’s all the same with you could I possibly send you a cheque or bankers draft? I could get it sent over by courier so it would only take a couple of days. You seem like a nice chap so am I right in assuming you’d be okay with this?
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
Jonny Robertson esq.
P.S. I love that golf ball in a glass thing. Do you play golf, BarristerAlex? You should come to Scotland, The Home Of Golf. We’ve got a brilliant pitch’n’putt here in Cumbernauld, if you were free one time I’d be more than happy to take you round. I’ll get my pal Billy to be your Caddy.
P.P.S. Love the “Legal Eagle” print on the ball as well. Did you make that up yourself? You’re such a talented man, BarristerAlex. I mean not only are you n the legal profession but “Eagle” is a golfing tem AND “Legal” and “Eagle” both rhyme! You sir, if I may say so, are a ****ing genius.Posted 4 years ago
Another email from Favour making sure I follow the script…
Good evening my sweetheart,Posted 4 years ago
How are you today and how is work ? I hope you are doing great.
Honey i have seen the mail from the lawyer and what he demanded for the processing of the documents, Please honey help me and send the money to him so that he will get the documents for us soon, you know the bank is waiting for us to present those documents and they will effect the transfer immediately to your account, honey You know and understand my condition here i can not afford any money, I hope to hear from you soon let me know when you will be sending the money to the lawyer. Have a nice day i love you so much.
..and letting her know that it’s all under control…
I’m one step ahead of you my angel, BarristerAlex emailed me yesterday and we’ve got it sorted out between us. I’ll be sending the money over as soon as he authorises it, It’ll most likely be cheque or bankers draft, BarristerAlex will be fine with that I reckon, he seems like a good guy. And he plays golf. And has a BRILLIANT sense of humour.
Sorry to hear that it’s still so bad in the camp. Hang in there my darling, I know you can do it.
Sending you strength,
Jonny xPosted 4 years ago
Here’s her lawyer again…

…and my reply…
Good evening BarristerAlex,
Thank you for submitting all the information and documents to the Federal High Court. I guess now you’ll be wanting paying? How are you for a bankers draft? I can get it sent over within a week. What about a game of golf though? Would you like to come over? I can’t imagine the golf courses in Senegal are much cop to be honest. It’d be just like one massive bunker, surely?
Jonny Robertson (ESQ).Posted 4 years ago
Right Folks, tonight’s installment begins with Favour making sure I follow the script…
Hello my dear,
How are you doing today? Hope all is well with you over there.
My dear please, i want to know how far you have gone with the lawyer concerning the preparation of the documents the bank is demanding from us? Please try and get back to me immediately so that i will know how you have gone with the lawyer because the bank is waiting for us to send the documents to them. Hope to hear from you soonest.
Yours beloved one,Posted 4 years ago
And my reply….
I’m good thank you, very good. I’ll skip asking how you are as I’ll probably just get the usual sob story about the camp. I’ve emailed BarristerAlex to arrange payment so it looks like I have been well and truly set up. Let me know if the bank want to speak with me again. I’d like to speak with Sir Steve again, he was nice. I sometimes find myself thinking of him. I sometimes think of him at work, at his desk, wearing a suit, solving people’s money worries. Sometimes I think of him being outside, and he’s running. Along a beach, I like to think. Naked. What a guy.
I’ve also taken the liberty of inviting BarristerAlex over to Scotland for a round of golf. Hopefully when all this is sorted out and you are out of the camp we can all go for a game? What a lovely way to celebrate your freedom. Would you like that?
Reply soon my love!

Now i was a wee bit worried that I’d overstepped the mark with Favour re my comments about Sir Steve Robson as it all went quiet over there. However with little better to do with my time than emailing criminals in Africa I fired a couple of emails off to see if I got any response. Attention seeking, in other words. Firstly to “BarristerAlex”…
I’m just emailing you to see if you’ve heard anything from Favour as she’s not spoken to me for about 72 hours and she’s normally dead keen. I’m a bit worried that the rebels might have stormed the camp to go after her like they did her Dad. Christ, it’s got me thinking about Star Wars again. It’s like the battle of Endor all over but with more sand and less of those ****ing stupid talking teddy bears.
I’ll try and contact her and I was wondering whether you could do the same? Just add the fee for doing so to my bill.
Jonny Robertson esq.Posted 4 years ago
…and to Favour herself… Hello Favour,
I’m just checking in with you to see you are ok as I’ve not heard from you in a while, normally you’re right on the money when it comes to emailing your man. I’m a wee bit worried that the rebels have come after you like they did your father and that you have suffered the same fate. Please tell me it isn’t so. Please tell me you’re ok. It wasn’t anything to do with what I said about Sir Steve, was it? I only meant it in a platonic way. I cannot help if I am an admirer of the human form in all it’s guises. Although I’m sure he has a magnificent willy.
Hope to hear from you so soon,
Your Jonny. xx
P.S IN CASE YOU HAVE BEEN BUMPED OFF BY THE REBELS THEN THIS IS FOR THE ATTENTION OF THE REV FATHER SAMUEL MARK
Dear Rev. Father Samuel,
My name is Jonny Robertson and I am Favour Karume’s friend and lover. I am sorry to hear of the loss of my woman. I have a laywer, BarristerAlex Duke who is handling Favour Karume’s finances alongside Sir Steve Robson at the royal Bank Of Scotland. In recognition of all the good work that you have been doing for the displaced peoples in your county I hereby wish to instruct BarristerAlex and Sir Steve to transfer half of Favour’s fortune into your bank account. I can provide the details of both gentlemen for you if you wish to accept my most generous offer. However, I am just working on assumptions here as I’ve not heard from Favour for a bit and so if she is indeed alive and well then clearly it’s not my place to be sorting her finances out like that. You’d just be better off asking her for the money yourself.
Your servant in God,
Jonny Robertson.Posted 4 years ago
A’noon. I left it last night with me fearing for Favour’s safety but not to worry, she’s alive! She’d not been bumped off after all! She is sounding agitated though, no capitalisation, no punctuation, 2/10 for effort, frankly…
honey i want to know if you have send the money to the lawyer as he demanded for the processing of the documents,please my love let me know if you really want to help mePosted 4 years ago
But of course I want to help her! Why wouldn’t I? She’s mah laydee after all… FAVOUR!
I’m so glad to hear you’re ok, that’s a load off my mind alright. I’ve emailed BarristerAlex re payment but so far had no response. Could you try and nudge him in my direction so we can get it sorted? He’s not very good at answering his emails at all. Are you sure he’s a good lawyer? I think he’s a bit of a prick to be honest with you. He likes golf for a start. I HATE golf. I just thought cos of that paperweight thing he was into golf and I was just trying to be nice. I have the money here with me but until he gets his arse into gear so I can set up the transfer of funds we’re b*ggered.
Your hero in waiting,
Jonny xxPosted 4 years ago
A few days went by and then I received this. Things are not good at all at the camp. It’s getting desperate there. The internet connection is still bang on however….
Hello my sweetheart,
How are you doing today ? hope you are doing good.
Sweetheart, please i want to inform you that i want to lawyer office today to plead with him if he can render a help to us from any were after the transfer we can pay him back with the interest but he let me know that can not use his money to to pay for the documents for us that he can only help us if only we can come up with some money after everything is down we can then send the remaining balance to him.
Please my love, you that you are all my hope of living, i don’t have any person or relative i will run to apart from you darling and if you abandon me here in this situation i may die like other kids are dieing in this camp.
Please try you best to help me out and believe that any money you spend in this transfer most be balance you back with interest immediately the transfer is done into your bank account. Please i am counting on you , don’t disappoint me. I will stop here for now and i am hoping to read from you soon.
Yours beloved suffering one,Posted 4 years ago
Well I couldn’t just sit back and do nothing about dying kids, could I? I am here as a man to do what is right and that is SAVE THOSE POOR KIDS DAMMIT…. Hello my darling,
See? I told you this lawyer was a bell end, I AM going to pay, I just need to know if he will accept the money being delivered by courier. I don’t know what his problem is. What a numpty. Get another lawyer. I’ll pay.
Never mind that BarristerAlex choob though, you say there are KIDS DYING in the camp? Favour, please tell me this isn’t so. What are they dying of? Dysentery? Malnutrition? Malaria? Vaginismus?I want to help. I will help. I knew conditions were bad for you there but I didn’t realise just HOW bad. Oh my lover, what are we going to do? I’m going to put a stop to it, that’s what. I will raise awareness to your plight and the plight of others in the camp. I’ll do a tombola, put posters up (I’ll just get some pictures off Google and say it’s the camp, no one will know), I’ll get people doing sponsored stuff… Honey, I’m here for you. I’m here for all of you. It may take a couple of days to organise but I have some good friends and I know they will help out.
P.S, I know this wouldn’t be great for us from a communications point of view but if kids are dying in the camp then maybe the Rev Father Samuel Mark should consider flogging his computers and cancelling his internet subscription and using the money for supplies instead. If the internet providers over there are anything like Sky or BT over here they’ll be ****ing rinsing him.Posted 4 years ago
They gave it the best part of a week but the smell of lucre was clearly too much for them to resist. Here’s Favour again and things seem to be fine at the camp again as there was no mention of anyone dying this time…
Hello my dearest one ,
How are you doing today? Hope all is well with you over there.
My dear, please i want you to call the lawyer and tell him when you will send the money to him because the bank is waiting for us to send the documents to them soon. Please try your best for me i will be waiting to read a good news from you soon.
Yours Favour.Posted 4 years ago
And this is probably the final email in the whole sorry exchange. I think we’ve reached the end of the road here with this final email to “BarristerAlex”…
How’s it hanging my man? Long time no speak, eh? I had a rather upsetting email off Favour the other day telling me that conditions in the camp were deteriorating and that kids in the camp were dying. She didn’t elaborate but that sounds pretty sh*te, whatever it is that’s bumping them off.
Now, I’ve asked you repeatedly what you want me to do with the money. I don’t want to send it by Western Union as there is not a branch near me, I checked. It’s about 40 minutes on the bus to the nearest one and ****ed if I’m doing that. However, your ineptitude may be just the thing here. You see, Favour told me about the kids in the camp and I can’t just sit here and hear about them dying, BarristerAlex, you must surely understand that? To this end I have started a fundraising campaign to help them out, using the cash raised to give them whatever it is they need, food, medicine, Furby’s, you name it. We’re having a car boot sale for them in the car park of The Warm Zippy this weekend and I’ve already decided I’m going to shift a load of my old copies of Fiesta and Escort there (and I mean a LOAD) so we should be rolling in it by the end of the day.
Anyway, what I am asking is this, would you be prepared to act as trustee for all the money we raise? Add the cost of such to my bill, it’s not a problem as I’m actually pretty loaded. This won’t be the end of it though BarristerAlex, I want to make Favour’s plight more widely known. I’ve told my pals down the pub and I’ll be telling her story to the local press and radio. I might even tell the story on the internet. You’ll be getting a namecheck, don’t you worry, although whether you’ll be getting a recommendation is another matter, you’re gonna have to pull your finger out on this one, sunshine.
Your humble servant,
