Phil, that was about the best next move you could have made. Stroke of genius.

Quoted Text
Dear Mister Sanders,

Yesterday, my husband Phil was arrested by FBI agents for trying to send you a Western Union Moneygram.  Conducting any business with Western Union is a violation of his parole; he was convicted in 2004 of armed robbery at a Western Union branch.

As he was wiring $1800 to you, I turn to you for advice.  I don't want to lose my husband; he's facing nine years in jail for simply trying to sell his script.

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Respectfully yours,


Bernadette Clarke

Phil, maybe you could work in - in your next mail to Sanders - that since you (Phil) has breached the Homeland Security Act, articles 7 & 9, subparagraphs E through K, the FBI are very interested in bringing Mr. Sanders in for questioning - and then watch Mr. Sanders go "I'm Jack's cold sweat".

But the real question Mr. Sanders will be interested in knowing the answer to is whether Phil was arrested before or after he sent the money. I think it would be far more amusing if the money went off and he was arrested after they realized it was him. Therefore, the wife wants help, but Sanders still gets the money (or so he thinks).

BTW, this has got to rank as one of the best threads ever on the boards.

Apparently, the jig is up.

Between 7:50am and 8:00, Dom received three (count 'em three) e-mail regarding this thread.  The first was from Martin Sanders.  The other two were from writer whom he supposedly represented.  They insist it's all real and that I'm facing a lawsuit from Sanders.

The e-mail can be found here.

I look forward to the lawsuit.

{Don's edit: Actually, they were comments to the Martin Sander's Script Agent Scam posting.  If you scroll down you can see the three comments posted one after the other from the same ip address (in Germany).  If it was a true Cease and Desist, I'd have gotten an email and there would be actual contact information.}

I have just forwarded on my email from M Sanders to Samsa Films to get their confirmation that this is a scam.  

I'll send it on to Phil or Don who can send it onto Martin Sanders if needed.

I already checked his 'email headers' and he definitely is not in the country he says he's in.

Also, if you check the Link in Phil's post above, I found a site where Martin Sanders is a known scammer along with a load of other names to look out for.

Well, at the very least, maybe he'll stop trolling this site looking for people to email.

Just found a link to another forum where the elusive Martin Sanders was trying to sell a car for under $1,000.00 from July 2008.

This guy is trying to dupe everyone & anyone.

Also, if you check the Link in Phil's post above, I found a site where Martin Sanders is a known scammer along with a load of other names to look out for.

I couldn’t help but notice the following quote from “Glen B. Thomas,” a.k.a. “Martin Sanders,” on the front page:


Quoted from “Glen B. Thomas” on the front page of SS
Unless you (Phil Clarke, jr.) immediately cease and desist from communicating these defamatory and damaging comments regarding mr sanders I will file a law suit against you in the Superior Court for invasion of privacy and defamation and I will immediately seek a Preliminary Injunction enjoining and restraining you from making any further defamatory comments or communication regarding mr sanders. I will further seek to have you assessed for all court costs, including legal fees, related to this matter.


This is particularly interesting - and supremely ironic - given that Phil’s already received this response from the production company “Martin Sanders” claims to represent:


Quoted from Dilip Kungwani of Shoot Rajasthan Film Productions
dear phil


thanks for your mail..this man is totally fake , pl. ingore these kind of mail. pl.. donot reply and contact him. unless untill i directly contact to any body..

regards
dilip


I wonder if “Glen B. Thomas” is going to include Dilip Kungwani in his “Preliminary Injunction” against Phil.

How exactly did you invade Sanders' privacy, Phil? Are you holding back on us my good man?

I received another e-mail from the fraud:


Quoted Text
Phil,

Unfortunately,one of your friends whom you have been chatting with and whom I have helped sold his script have been playing on you and getting to know that you are ungrateful.

I have been reading your chat with him on the http://www.simplyscripts.com .It very ungrateful of you but I just want to let you know that if you fail to remove what you wrote against me or retract your defamatory statement,I will sue you for defamation of characters and those whom you have been chatting with definetly testify against you.

As for the FBI stuff,you may be surprised to see the table turn against you.


Looking forward to the lawsuit.


Phil
