My suggestion is to tell him that due to tax issues with your ex wife the IRS froze your joint accounts. Tell him there are $500 in fees to unfreeze the accounts and you donít have the money. Your ex wife has the money but deliberately refuses to pay the fees because she doesnít want you to have access to your joint accounts -- which is a shame because the accounts have a grand total of $3 million in them!! If he can send you $500 in the form of a cashierís check, you can cash it, unfreeze your joint accounts, and transfer the funds to your own private accounts. Then maybe you can even invest in the film!!

If only you had that $500.

Whatever you do, if you still feel like playing, I think you should give him the impression youíve got more money than sense.

My latest reply:


Quoted Text
Martin,

I am a little familiar with Rajaat Kapoor's work; he's more of an actor than a director, despite any award he's won.  Also, from what I hear, he likes to change the script to meet his vision; I do not feel comfortable with this.  I spent nearly three years on this script.  I do not like the idea of someone jumping on board and changing things up.  I can't imagine what he would do to the bathroom scene at the end of the script.  And, to be honest, 'Glade' is very different from his other work.

I advised Boose Films LLC of our correspondences, including your offer.  They have countered it with an offer of $62,500 US dollars, as well as 1.5% of the net.

Please don't think that I have lost interest in your offer.  I am very interested in expanding my writing to include foreign cinema. Until recently, I had a deal with Afghani Production, LLC, for my romance comedy, 'Dirty Sanchez.'  The deal fell through when the producer lost his life in a coffee shop bombing.  However, Boose Films has offered me, in my opinion, a better deal.

Also, as I mentioned earlier, I am legally unable to use any of Western Union's services.  This includes Moneygrams.  Is there any other way that I can send you the money, should I go with you and Shoot Rajasthan.

I understand that Shoot Rajasthan wants to seal up this deal in a few days, but I do have to consider all options.  And my legal problems with Western Union only complicates things.

I look forward to hearing from you and your advice.


Phil

Good stuff, Phil.  I liked the line about the coffee shop bombing. I'm enjoying following this.

I usually don't give a sh*** about scams. Not personally. For the gullible, yes I do.

Personally, all I care about is my craft. If I ever get there, I'll have people seeking me out and my life won't change much except that I'll be able to hire people in many venues to make the world a better place.

My desire carries me and it will most certainly carry others: and if it does, then devil DON'T be damned, you've served well and we'll rise because of it. Well....

Some of us it will take us awhile, but it will happen.

Thanks Phil,

Sandra

Ah Miss Elstree Studios,

Indeed. A lot of us feel that way. "but it will happen" is exactly the attitude that will get there.

When I first got one of these emails from that skanky git I thought it was fishy but, not having many previous offers I was kinda really pleased too.

Then I read it properly then I came on here.

One day I'll be bored with offers. That'll be a good day.

From Martin Sanders:


Quoted Text
Mr Phil,

I have talked with Shoot Rajasthan and they are almost loosing interest.I have further pushed them to agreeing to pay $68,000 and 1.5% net.But with the condition that the documents be signed or is with you by tommorow.I have contacted DHL Express to work it out.I also promised them that every thing will be done before Friday,though they feel not sure about it.
I have recommeded Danny Boyle,you know him the director of Slum Dog Millionaire and he will now be directing the movie.As for changing a part of your script,you have my wod for that that none of that will happen.

Am afraid this probably will be the last you will hear from me should there be any other excuse because I want to mentain my intergrity with Shoot Rajasthan.
I understand that you may be on parole with Western union but you can ask a collegue or your spouse to do that on your behalf.
Shoot Rajasthan has instructed me to make sure all is begun today before ever they will contract Danny Boyle andthat they cannot go beyond the $68,000 and 1.5% net, you can see that you are holding the progress of this deal.

If you are unable to forward the fees today,I will consider the deal terminated.

Martin.

Oh well, looks like he's about to run. I think it might be time to drop the bomb that - as part of standard background credential checks - you contacted the studio direct and that they've never heard of Mr. Sanders and have never employed his services. And, you've contacted the Luxembourg embassy and not only have they never heard of a Mr. Sanders, but they take this kind of fraud very seriously and have passed the matter on to Interpol. Make him squirm.

OR...something about the lengths you're going to to get the money? You have an appointment booked tomorrow to have a kidney removed (with an eager buyer in the wings), you're planning to rob a bank tonight, you've kidnapped someone and you're waiting for the ransom demand...

I don't know. But I like what you've done so far!



Guess who's back? Back again?

THis guy certainly has all the contacts and easy access to get them on board. Wow, Danny Boyle is now ready to film your classic 5 minute script.  You just have to love this guy.

I agree with Johnny...tell him you are robbing a bank this afternoon and will let him know if you get away with it.

This is great!

My reply:

Quoted Text
Martin,

I am very surprised that Danny Boyle is available for work, so soon after the accident he suffered in his home only three weeks ago.  Still, if he is healthy enough for work, then I am happy.  I guess you don't need thumbs to direct a movie.  If you were able to guarantee  Boyle for 'Glade,' then I want to sign up with you and Shoot Rathasthan.

This still does not resolve my problem with the payment.  My condition for parole restricts me from conducting any money transfers with Western Union, both directly and indirectly.  Having my wife, or a friend send the money in my behalf is still a violation of my parole and I cannot risk going back to prison, even for this script.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation is closely monitoring all money transfers leaving the United States because of all the scam artists overseas, scamming all the gullible Americans out of their money.  It is too risky for me.

Is there some other way that I can get you the money?  I could wire the money to you from my bank, if that is possible.  Or, to avoid the courier fee, you could e-mail or fax the paperwork to me. Or I could send the money to you through Pay-Pal.  Is it even possible that you or Shoot Rajasthan could simply deduct the money from my salary as writer?  I think this would be the best solution and would eliminate the chance of su,m bag con artists getting involved.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Phil,

You could alternatively turn the tables and either A: Keep on emailing him for updates, adding more delays, say the money is on its way, possibly send the money to the wrong person.

B: Get an automatic email software and bombard him with a thousand requests or offers for other scripts.

C: Say you'll agree to it if you can get an autographed photo from Danny Boyle and a face-to-face meeting.

If I ask for anything that he can't deliver on (ie: everything), I'll just scare him off.  I want to see how long I can play with him.

Oh boy. It looks like Phil's deal is about to fall through. This is Olí Gil's big chance to step in and get his hands on the brass ring. I really need this.
