A Blue Helmet Seeks Your Consideration

The men and women serving as “Blue Helmet” peacekeepers for the United Nations make for a diverse, multinational bunch. As I have gotten to know the Miniscule Blue Helmets on a Massive Quest (Pacific Northwest Division), I have discovered that they are just as varied in nationality and background. You learned a little bit about Ingvar by reading the letter he wrote to his girlfriend back in Stockholm. Today, I introduce you to Charles Remmy from the Benin Republic.

I wanted to interview Mr. Remmy, but he was uncomfortable with my recorder. Instead, he offered to write his story and e-mail it to me. Perhaps he has already sent you a message seeking your help. Here is what I found in my spam filter this morning:

Good Day,

The Mr Toy Cannon has kindly asked me to tell of my story of how I am in the service of Blue Helmet.
It is my pleasure to write you after consideration, since I can not be able to see you face to face at first, but one has to risk trust at time.

I am Charles Remmy the only son of late Mr & Mrs Richard Remmy, from Benin Republic. (I am 21 years of age.) My father was a Gold/Diamond merchant before his untimely death after his business trip to Tunisia. He wanted to invest in Tunisia, but a week after he came back from Tunisia he got an accident with my mother of which my mother died instantly but my father died five days after in a private hospital. On that faithful afternoon, I didn’t know that my father was going to leave me after I had earlier lost my mother, but before he gave up the ghost, he called me to his bed side and told me that he deposited the sum of ($12,500,000.00) Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars in a financial Volt. (MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE).

This is the money realise from the raw gold/ diamond he just sold before the trip to invest in Tunisia, he deposited the money in a fixed suspense account using my name as the next of kin. He instructed me to seek for a reliable and trust worthy business partner in abroad for investment. Now I have succeeded in locating the deposit documents and where this money is.

But due to how wicked my uncle is and the economic of our country is not stable, I am seeking for assistance for partnership to join me transfer this money out from my country to a secure account abroad so that to invest it in any meaningful and lucrative business because I have no experience about investment.

I am willing to offer 20% of the total fund if only someone can help me out of my present predicaments. However I find no body who will provide a bank account where this money can be transferred into and sponsor the transfer. I can find no body who can promise me he is not going to betray me after the money gets into his account. As a result of the misfortune, I enlist in the military forces and am now assigned to peace keeping job in a distant country of Oregon and am wearing the blue helmet.

The worst part of it is that my uncle is trying to kill me over this money because I refused to hand him over the documents covering this money. He has sold all my father's landed properties including his cars which rightful belong to me and he want me to hand over the banking document of my father in my possession which I refused. He does not no that I am wearing the blue helmet in America.

Now he said that he will have this money by all means even if it means killing me but he dont no where this money is deposited, so because of this I ran away from home and hide in another country, pending when this money will be transferred so that I can leave the country for my safety and no longer wear a blue helmet.

Thank’s and God bless you.
Yours sincerely
Charles Remmy.

Note: The bold-faced words are the only changes I made to the text I received this morning.

Now that you've been introduced to two of the Blue Helmets protecting the Pacific Northwest, we're one-sixth of the way toward a Dirty Dozen. I wonder which one Brad Pitt will play?

I believe I've met Mr. Remmy on the Internets. It's such a pleasure to meet these blue helmet heroes who are visiting our city and learn a little bit about the hearts that tick beneath the uniforms. When can we expect another dispatch?

Bob, funny you should ask about another dispatch. Look for my latest post about a Blue Helmet, Little Tony, who is missing in action.
