I like to email some of the other ones and ask for more money than they are willing to give. You know the ones, "For helping me, you will receive 25% or US $10,000,000.00". I'll email them back and ask for 60% due to the trouble I may encounter for embezzling their "funds". They never catch one to the fact I'm picking on them and wasting their time.

I still think Krmathis should get into the scamming business. NO ONE would expect this from a guy from Oslo.


My name is Krmathis. It has come to my attention that you are a long lost relative. We recently sold the family fjord and its mineral rights to a multinational company (don't worry, none of those nations are Nigeria). If you will PayPal me 10,000,000 Krone, I can begin the legalities associated with the transfer of your share of fjord wealth.

...and they are now targeting headfiers directly!

Dear Most Distinguished Headfier:

This confidential communication from the Under-Ear Secretary of the Official Orifice of Heaphoneous Supreme is to inform you that the late King Headfier has, in his most beneficial Last Will and Testament, named you, and only you, as the sole beneficiary of previously unknown but now uncovered Stax stash of most delectable orthodynamic electrostatic headphones and cherished electrostatic amplification units valued in the amount of $12,000,000 (12 Million US Dollars). These yet undiscovered NOS (new old stock) audiophile treasures were the property of the late King of the principle principality of the Isle of Modification.

In order to keep this official correspondence in the utmost of secrecy and so that there is no sound leakage from this Letter of Entitlement, we ask that you process this letter through your DAC and keep only the analogue copy, destroying all digital evidence and in this way, preserving the secrecy of our agreement, as in no way must the terms of your entitlement ever reach the owner of any iPod or any other non-highest fidelity instrument of amplification and digital-to-analogue conversions not recognized and accepted by our Supreme Office.

Therefore, in keeping with the wishes of our late King, and the bestowment of your entitlement, I have instructed our Supreme Reviewer, who is most unbalanced in his terminations and who has authority vested in myself, the Under-Ear Secretary, to grant you freedom from MP3 compression and other means of distortion that are not tolerated or acceptable, even if they are all audible and you just happen to like the damn music anyway and the dynamics are compressed to the tolerance of intolerance.

Please include your official unedited Headfi signature and the list of any equipment you own so that we can verify as you being worthy of the acceptance of this honorable letter. In order that we may know that you are genuine in your acceptance, we require you to send two Western Electric NOS 300B tubes of at least 87% testing quality on a vintage 1960 Hickcock Tube Tester.

A secret eBay item number will be forwarded should you not be in possession of these tubes in order that you may secure them and that they may be made available to satisfy our requirements. Otherwise, to complete this most secret of transactions that is known only to you, me, and everyone else on the Internet, please supply us with two RCA one-meter cables in sacrifice to the Volcano God, as he is officially charged with burn-in of all equipment and uncooperative Headfiers.

Most Sincerely Yours
Under-Ear Secretary
Official Orifice
Headphoneous Supreme
