Subject: [redacted - confidential]
From: Individual
Date: Tue, March 5, 2013 4:34 am
To: Person

In short:

I meet edi greens accountant, kind woman. She made a couple of phone calls for me and no-one had any info about ASICs. The boss never heard of Bitcoin or anything related.

The published phone no. was not working while I was there. Now its ringing but no one answers.

Scam 99.5% at this point.

This is the great story. I hope you've enjoyed it.

PS. No actual girlfriends were harmed in the making of this film.
