The CIA can't live on a teacher's salary nor keep their counsel around liberals. They pose instead as businessmen and military attaches.

CIA agents don't do it for money. they do it for the love of the job. the thrill... excitement... the duty to self and nation.

jesus this thread i a good one! I'm glad I didn't chime in sooner - or maybe not?!? This is classic in the sense that it all sounds awesome but there is squat for verification so.....


I just find it sad that so many people are so cynical


Me too but that is exactly the bait that is used to set the trap. It is not a matter of wishing it is a matter of reality. Fraud happens and they call it a confidence scheme.

The thing is, there is a business opportunity here. If someone could create an E-Bay for "cries for help" that are verified as true .... or maybe a an online Slueth service? - You could call it E - Dick!

If this guy is true we all would love to help. If not ...... maybe part of the attraction in using such an E - Dick service would be the ability to inflict E - Vigilante justice where needed, as much as provide help where needed. I'm telling you there's money to be made here!

Not quite following you on this tangent ole Roy....

You are suggesting that a guy, a teacher, who posts frequently on rockclimbing.com, details the development of a climbing gym venture he worked on, and now posts this thread is a CIA operative who is data-mining through these climbing websites?

What?... His cover was blown and so he's getting kicked out of Indonesia, but they're politely giving him 2 weeks notice to vacate, and the good old USofA is too strapped for money to extract him, so they suggested he come up with a scheme designed to pull on the heartstrings of Supertopo and fund his getaway? Because (through data mining) it is clear that this is a dog loving forum?

just add his to the 99.99% of charitable causes to which you won't contribute.

I recognize the poster as a long time ST contributor. Seems like a good person.
But Jan summarized my own reaction: "this is what credit cards are for". You have a job waiting for you in the States, according to your post...

This has gone so far off the OP request it is pathetic. The guy has been posting for years. So he comes to the taco hat in hand asking for some help. How many times has that happened? And then he gets crucified. I've seen a number of posts here about grieving for the loss of a pet and the condolences subsequentley conveyed.

I have no clue about the accumulation in the pay pal account but it sounds bogus to me that it could get that high.

OP, can you clarify the actual cost rather than just ask for cash?

Good lord, let's hear him out rather than pilliory him.

Didnít anticipate all this discussion. $17,000+ worried me a bit, definitely too much.

For those interested and asking:
$10.00 on chip-in.
$101.85 with people who sent money directly to my PayPal.

First and foremost, I agree, the dogs are my responsibility and no one elseís.

Several of you have pointed out that this is my problem and I should deal with it. I agree, I have no one to blame. I came to Indonesia as an International School teacher. Yes, we spend all our spare time spying for the CIA. Those of you who are teacher will appreciate the spare time comment.

While here, I decided to leave a steady job to start a climbing gym in a foreign country. A country known for constantly changing itsí laws, especially work permits and those related to small/medium sized businesses.

The business was started; my share was put in my wifeís name. Foreigners canít own a business without becoming a foreign cooperation. About $20,000 cost. My wife, partner, and I decided the extra 20,000 wasnít worth it because Ernita is Indonesian. A conscious decision that I willingly made. Again, I blame no-one.

Because of the work visa situation here, my wife and I will move to America so I can go back to teaching in the States. Nevada, Arizona, California, maybe Utah. Unlike a climbing gym, teaching is guaranteed to make me rich.

Several of you believe this is a scam, nothing I can do about that. Several of you have donated; thank you. Some of you have defended me; I appreciate it. Most of you have read this, didnít attack, defend, or donate.

Someone pointed out that I have no control over what laws the Indonesian Government decides to change or alter so this isnít so different from in unexpected health issues. I think health issues are much worse and that 99% of the people who experience them are much less responsible for causing them than I am for me being in Indonesia. With the exception of someone willingly putting themselves in a dangerous situation and getting hurt, I think unexpected health issues are not the personís fault, but this is a position I put myself in.

I very much agree that this is a first world problem. As someone who has seen and volunteered in third world countries, I completely agree they are much better causes out there than bringing my dogs to America. Many great causes in America are much higher on the list too.

Cheers,
Eman
I can keep you guys posted on how much I raise if youíre interested.

Last two post must have been posted while I was writing.

Initial estimate from the airline is 1500.00 USD. That is what I am trying to raise.

Second post, no job yet. I plan on teaching and with my experience, I should be able to find a job in Either Arizona, Nevada, Utah maybe California.

A teacher with a sense of humor is a good thing.
