Got an interesting conundrum that I'm hoping you can help me figure out. A coupla days ago
I received this e-mail (and yes, it was from a hotmail account).
"Dear Mr. Barnes,
First I must tell you that your actions have not gone unnoticed. Certain people in power have been
watching you with much interest. They monitor your site, and they have people watching you even as
you read this. I am sure that you probably get e-mails like this everyday, and I'm also sure that
99% of them are crackpots. Well, I'm the one-percent. Let me elaborate:
I used to belong to a secret government agency. Actually the agency was a sub division of FEMA
(Federal Emergency Management Agency), which I'm sure you are familiar with. If not just type
secret government into any search engine and you can find out a lot about it (typing FEMA into a
search engine will just get you their "official" website which is a bunch of bullshit). The division
I belonged to however, DOCCE (Division of Counter-culturist Control and Elimination), you will not
find with any search engine. For all intensive purposes, it doesn't exist. There is no written
record of this division in existence. The reason? If there is no proof that this division exists,
then it is above the law.
So what is the purpose of this secret division of an already fairly secretive government agency?
Well Mr. Barnes, like the name indicates it is responsible for monitoring and eliminating certain
individuals whom "they" determine to be a threat. "They" being another secret agency that even I
have no knowledge of. All I know about them is that "they" were the one who told us who to watch
and when to eliminate them, and to what degree they were to be eliminated. The degree to which the
individual was deemed to be a threat, determined the way in which he was eliminated. A "level alpha"
threat would have an unfortunate "accident". "Level beta" simply disappeared. These individuals were
abducted, then usually tortured for information, and then murdered. "Level delta" threats were
completely erased. That means the same thing happens to them that happens to "level betas" except
all record and evidence of their existence was destroyed as well. This means birth records, criminal
records, IRS, and even family members in many instances.
So you can see why I had to get out of this organization. This has not been easy. You don't just
quit DOCCE. If you are lucky and make it to retirement you get a big fat pension to keep your mouth
shut (by fat I mean upper six figures per year). If you aren't so lucky you are eliminated yourself.
So it is no easy feat for me to be out of there, and I and far from safe yet. Currently I am in hiding,
staying one step ahead of DOCCE bloodhounds.
So I'm sure you are wondering how you fit into all of this, and why I am risking contacting you. First
of all this email address is secure. With the help of a hacker friend of mine, I was able to salvage
this address from a list of abandoned Hotmail accounts that were about to be deleted. Looking at the
personal information on the account told me that it was an obviously anonymous account, so the prior
owner is in no danger either. As a further precaution, I will be using a different computer each time
I log in to this account (right now I'm in a public library). So any correspondence you can safely
send to this address.
Now as to how you fit in: Before I fled the DOCCE, I intercepted an internal memo meant for another
agent. The original of this document is in a safe place. I have a copy, but I have not, had any
luck finding access to a scanner (my hacker friend is now being watched). I will however make a copy
of this accessible to you as soon as I'm able. The memo was a "work order" (DOCCE jargon for hit list).
The first name on the list was mine, which is why I fled. You are also on the list. "Derek Barnes -
threat level DELTA". You are in serious shit my friend. Now I don't know what you did to get on this
list, but looking at your website, I'm positive it has something to with something either on there, or
something you are working on right now but haven't posted yet. In any case you are in grave danger.
I may have bought you some time by intercepting that memo, but it won't be long before they figure out
you aren't erased. You need to hide, and by hide I don't mean go running to your Mommy's house you
need to disappear.
I can help, but you must follow my instructions. First of all I know that they are intercepting your
email. It's SOP for anyone they have under surveillance. I think that they will let this get through
to you though in hopes that they can get to me through you.
So the first thing you need to do is setup an anonymous Hotmail account from a secure computer (one that
is not your own). Set it up with bogus information and use a name that can no way be linked to you
(another words don't use something like spring heel jack, ect.) Once you have done this, send an email
to *******@hotmail.com. In the subject line put "GREAT DEALS ON COMPUTERS". In the body of the email
answer this riddle.
To find the answer, look to the dead.
As you walk through his "Garden" look for what's read.
If Uruz, Algiz, Kenaz are FLIPPED,
What would I find if I went to EGYPT.
When I receive the answer to this email, I will know it is you and I will reply with further
instructions. Also NEVER log in to you account unless you are at a secure computer. Do not
hesitate to follow these instructions because as soon as you receive this email the so-called
cat will have been out of the bag for several hours. Time is of the essence Mr. Barnes!
I await your reply.
PS I'm sorry about Adam."
"Dear Mr. Barnes,
Once again I am trying to contact you. I'm not even sure you received my
first correspondence. I know that they are monitoring your email, and you
may not even receive this one. Once again I am hoping that they will allow
this to go through in the hopes of drawing me out.
If this has gotten to you and you are reading this, you are probably
wondering what I'm talking about. That's why I am enclosing an attachment of
my first correspondence, as well as the document that I mention within that
correspondence. Please read them before going any further.
That memo is a scanned copy of the original memo that I stole before I left
the DOCCE I'm sorry it is not of better quality, as it and I have been
though hell in the last few weeks. I have blacked out the other names on the
document to protect their identities. I have been in contact with one of
them and have gotten him to safety, but I fear that it might be too late for
the other, as I have not been able to track him down.
As you can see Mr. Barnes you are in grave danger, as is your work. Please
contact me by the method I mentioned in my first correspondence. I know that
this is a safe method, because if they had figured it out they would have me
in their grasp by now. Please contact. I will have more information for you
once I am certain that we have a safe way to communicate.
I await your response,
