Yesterday, I began telling the story of the email scammer going by the name Patel Quien Jelo.In that post, I put the emails on a web page hosted by a free wee hosting service. I was having trouble with the web host so, I decided to change the format and keep the story solely on the blogspot page with no switching back and forth from 12gbfree.com to here.With that in mind, I will repost part 1 now with part 2 to follow today. I know this may be a bit boring for the ones that read the blog yesterday, but in the long run it will work better.
The first email:
