Dear Mr Ikenga

How delightful to hear from you again!

I understand that Paraguay is lovely at this time of year, and also the home of some of the world’s finest freshwater whelks if I remember my geography lessons correctly.

Thank you so much for your kind offer of compensation for my efforts during our recent venture, but I’m pleased to be able to say that the offer is no longer necessary. I have been in negotiations with a well known publisher who has offered me a large sum of money for my extensive collection of correspondence with a number of 419 scammers. They intend to publish the book in time for next Christmas, with the title “Mrs Trellis – Scambuster” and hope to cash in on a market that has been poorly served since the sad demise of Henry Root.. I am therefore writing to ask if you would be so kind as to allow our recent correspondence to appear in the book, I’ll be happy to send you a signed copy if you agree.

I look forward to your reply

Kind regards

Mrs Trellis
