The Liechtenstein Suite

Meet Angela Lowry Daniele.  As decked out h'yar, she claims to be a "sergeant army officer" with the US Army in Afghanistan.

And she's ronery. 

I'll bet Kim Jong Il would love to meet up with her, if he wasn't so inconveniently dead.

My character gets these unsolicited "can we talk?" scam emails all the time.  About a week after he responded to this one with a "undt vhut shall ve sprechen abooten?", he gets the following email along with some rather impressive photos:


Hello,

 How are you and your family doing today? i hope all is well with you?


 First i will have to say that I am sorry for my late reply to your  message, i have been busy with work, as we went on outside work, I am  very happy for meeting you here and i will be willing to open my heart  to know more about you. I am 31 years old in US Army a sergeant presently in Afghanistan  working as an American military officer.

knowing one another doesn't take years, it just take seconds to meet  someone and be good friends, that i why i sent you message in the  first place, because you profile picture caught my attention and I  will like to know more about you and be friends with you, if you do  not mind okay and i will tell you more about myself when i get your  reply..

Are you married or single? do you have any children? how  old are you?  and what do you work? i want to know more about you and i do not mind  coming to your country once am done with my service here,I hope to  hear from you again, please do take care of yourself and have a nice
day okay. 


It is signed as Angela Lowry Daniele.

I find a number of things amusing as hell here, not the least of which is (a) that's supposed to be her uniform (b) she references my character's profile and photo (he has neither) and her other two pictures are supposed to be as convincing as the one above:


Oh hell yeah:  my character is convinced.  So much so, here's his response:


My name is Ukulele.  You may call me "Uk" (pronounced "Yuke").  I am 40 and work in the defense industry in Liechtenstein.  You are very charming.  What can I do for you?  

That draws this:


Thank you so much for your good respond for my message  .It is my pleasure having you as my friend. Knowing one another is a  gradual process and here are few things I think you should know about  me, I am American Citizen and also a soldier and before I was serving  in the American Army base but right now I am leading a troop in  Afghanistan, I Love meeting people, reading, traveling too!!and also  sharing ideas and also I care about nature, human being, love arts,  environment, social culture,....etc. I am 31 years old .   My full name is Angela Daniela American National and I  am still in Afghanistan but will be going back to my country VERY
SOON. .  


Okay:


That's nice.  Say...perhaps when you get some leave from Afghanistan, you could come meet with me in Liechtenstein?  It is a lovely place.  Google it.

So naturally, my character needs pictures of the Liechtenstein military industrial complex, in case Sgt Officer Angela makes inquiries about it.
 
Enter teh Gooble and therein got me some:
 
 
Liechtenstein's Air Force (someone might suggest an upgrade sometime).
 
 
 




Liechtenstein Army (and this is probably more than they really have).



  Of course, what's an army widdout a band?

In actuality, Liechtenstein has no standing army (they primarily sit) and haven't had since about 1868.  A story goes the rounds that the last time Liechtenstein's military was committed to anything, 80 men went forth...81 returned (an Italian deserter liked life on the other side).  Liechtenstein was last formally invaded in the early 1800s; it was inadvertently invaded in 2007 by a 170 person Swiss Army unit (knives optional)...and they (the Swiss) were lost.

Guess they have 2nd lieutenants with compass problems, too.

At any rate, after having shared all this with my character's newly found and udderly fascinating friend, 'she' refers me to her commanding officer, and asks that I contact him to arrange for her to have leave to come and be with me in Liechtenstein. 

This should be good:

Ok dear if you can apply for my leave, write to my boss for me to come to Liechtenstein and we get married to you, he will grant it and i will come over to Liechtenstein to meet you...  


Who is your boss and how do I write to him/her?  


Hello sweetie,
This is the contacts of my boss..
Email: davidmorganhsbc@gmail.com. his name is General David Morgan.
you can call him or send him email or you send me your own contact details let me forward it him in UK.  
 
 
Awesome.  Here is my contact information here in Liechtenstein:
Dr. Ukulele Ungabunga
Austrasse 15
9490 Vaduz
Phone  423 *** ** **
I will be happy to arrange with him your leave to come here!
 
 
So my character contacts the General and thus begins a new chapter:
 
 
I am General David Morgan from US MILITARY BASE, I received your details from your fiance  Angela Daniel our Military officer in Afghanistan.
I am trying to contact you but your line is not connecting, kindly send your main line to me now so that i can reach you immediately.

Thanks
Gen.David Morgan
US MILITARY CAMP-001.   
 
 
There seems to be a problem with the phones since yesterday.  Communicate me in email as that seems to be working.  
 
 
Greetings,
You are welcome dear, if you can take care of her travelling bills, i will approve her leave to see you.
Thanks
Regards,
General David Morgan.
 
 
A general calling my character "dear"?  Whoa..but ol' Ukster will let it go for now:
 
 
I do believe that I can.  How do we make this arrangement?  

 
Greetings,
The arrangement is for you to pay for her flight ticket through and fro which will cost €750. You are to make the payment via western union to United state so that we can book for her trip of seeing you immediately. Payment details: William Schifferli 27 Callede Las Sonata Rancho Santa Magarida 92688.
Thanks.  Regards,
General David Morgan  



Allow me to confirm the details:    cost of air travel for Angela is 750 Euros.   I am to wire this money via Western Union to the following person to make the purchase of travel for Angela:   William Schifferli 27 Callede Las Sonata Rancho Santa Magarida 92688.   Just for my edification, who is this person and how is he to arrange for Angela's travel?  

Yes this is our secretary's details, so that we can book her trip. please kindly send address details to your fiance Angela Daniele immediately you make the payment so that she can start coming immediately.  

Trust me, General, when she gets here, I'll have her coming very soonest, and in a manner she'll enjoy.  
No problem dear, please take care of her.  
There he goes again with the "dear" sh*t.  Still restraining my character:
Of course, General.  I intend to marry her and make her my own little princess.  And in Liechtenstein, she'll fit right in as a princess.
Now that everything seems to be agreed to, the "Genital" starts to betray some impatience:
When are you making the payment? so that we tell her to get ready to meet you dear  
 
There he is with that "dear" sh*t again...still my character kinda maintains restraint:
General Dear, I will be making that payment to your secretary tomorrow (Thursday, April 6).  What country is your secretary in?  It didn't appear to be a UK address.  I don't want to screw up the wire transfer.


 

 
Details:  I used the Western Union at Austrasse 105, 9490 Vaduz, Liechtenstein.

Western union details from the bank, your information and the pin they gave you from the bank

Sent to:  William Schifferli 27 Callede Las Sonata Rancho Santa Magarida, CA 92688
Sent from:  Dr. Ukulele Ungabunga  Austrasse 15 9490 Vaduz  Liechtenstein
They didn't give me a pen.  They didn't give me an apple.  I came away with neither an apple or a pen.  They weren't having a special on that today I guess.  Uh.  
 
 
a pin not a pen.  It is on the receipt.  Give it to me now.  
 
 
The receipt?  How do I do that now?   You're th'yah and I'm h'yah.  
 
 
what is go on there?  
 
The beat goes on.  The beat goes on.  Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain...la de da de de, la de da de dah...Liechtensteinian National Anthem, y'know.  
 
 
Have you done western union before?... go bank and tell the bank to give you the western union information Mr. William have not received anything from you. We are not joking here please...
What do you mean, "have you done Western Union before?"....how do you mean that, "have I done them?".  Done them how?  


Ok What we need is the information given to you from the bank with the pin. Thank you, Mr William have not receive any thing from you  

I sent it to him just where and how you instructed.  WTF?  And what pin are you talking about?  A clothes pin?  Safety pin?  What pin???   You're making this unnecessarily difficult, Genital.  I sent you the money you said was required for Angela's leave.  I sent it...so let her leave.  #LetAngelaLeave. (I mean, aren't hash tags all the online rage?  Don't they move mountains and change people's minds on sh*t?)


After inserting an interlude for waiting (aka *The Jeopardy Theme*), ol' "Yuke" got this from the Genital:


stop emailing me you fraud.  


Fine...I'll just encourage Angela to dessert, or entrée, or whatever term you Genitals in the Army call it.  We Liechtemfine in Liechtenstein, y'know.  

Of course, dear ol' Angela Lowry Daniele stopped communicating too.  Funny how that worked.  Even a hash tag couldn't save that one.

Too bad, too:  she'd of made a helluvan addition at Ocktoberfest...ach, vhat a pair of liebers!

These poor women just can't make it from point A to point B without your money, dear. Love all the dears in there.

So you're the fraud. Go figure.

Have a fabulous day and Easter, Mike. My best to Seymour and Element. ☺
