Exclusive Black Armchair. Twelve years ago whereas I was in Jakarta on business, I received a phone call from a fan of mine from Acra, Ghana telling me that he stumbled upon something I might be inquisitive about investigating. Six months later I arrived to Acra, met my friend, started my preliminary interviewing and asked him to start detailing to me what exactly I am presupposed to be investigating. My friend was an intellect and of privileged educational background, he was well spoken and affluent in English and a well connected Ghanaian businessman.
At first when he started detailing to me what he witnessed along with his own eyes I frankly did not believe what I have heard, or maybe I failed to wish to believe at the time, I guess I was a bit naïve and surprised with what he witnessed. My 1st reaction was a doubtful gaze into his eyes only to work out before me even additional dazzled facial features than mine.
Eventually, he advised to take me there and show me the full operation head to head, my curiosity wouldn’t let me hesitate for one moment to right away settle for his generous offer, and we have a tendency to set up a gathering along with his people claiming that I may be in a position to urge them what they need to resume their operation since I am into investigating these strange events and i am internationally well connected…
His individuals accepted and gave us date to meet them within 3 days, those three days were of the longest days I have spent waiting in my life, I was thus excited and could not wait even for my second breath. But anyway, waiting was inevitable but not without thus many doubtful thoughts jumping into my head right and left. Third day came and also the time for truth was due, I was alleged to be picked up from my hotel at ten am. But if you’re acquainted with Acra, you would definitely apprehend that this is often not going to happen. For, in Acra much as in all of Africa time has another perception, they merely have the time of the world on their side…
I took my early lunch out of boredom that day, since I was regarding to possess an anxiety attack with increasing dose of graver doubts concerning the entire purpose of my going to Acra from the beginning.
Suddenly, at virtually 3 pm. My friend arrived, he really did not have to search for me for long since I was eagerly awaiting him at the lobby beside the swimming pool having my cold soda drink chilling out on an extraordinarily steamy, hot and humid day.
Allas, eventually you’ve got arrived, what happened I questioned grimly wondering, he gave me this shining teeth smile easing my nerves, informing me to urge up and let’s go, some folks are waiting to select us up 0.5 way…
Off we tend to went, he drove his car for pretty much an hour until we arrived to some where I even have never known it even existed in Acra, and it absolutely was a distant outback of the town. I saw another automotive looking ahead to us off the road and my friend nodded to me his head confirming that they were our ride.
We have a tendency to went out of his car and jumped speedily into the opposite automobile not knowing where our next destination would cause. Within the front sat beside the motive force a huge and silent man, he and the driver were stalking me with their eyes and they appear to possess wanted to eye fold me, since they were speaking I local dialect I was not acquainted with, my friend was exchanging some words with them and he appear to possess succeeded in persuading them that there was no need and that i may be trusted by them.
Our real journey started on a terribly rugged bumpy off road in the center of nowhere, it absolutely was fishy however very exciting, the deeper we went into the woods the more the trip seemed like an adventure movie of some sort. And finally there have been a village we have a tendency to might see ahead of us, on the way to the village there was this dead corps of a goat all swollen up prepared to blow with a terribly distinctive smell of death surrounding it, therefore sturdy it managed to penetrate our automobile with its closed windows and air condition running though. Poor goat should are bitten by malaria mosquito,(the malaria almost took my life once, in Acra, it place me in coma, I was literally in lala land for 3 days in hospital) just kidding, most likely a snake…
After we have a tendency to passed the village we have a tendency to might see a villa rising to our sight range at the outskirts of the village. An impressive villa out of nowhere, wow! Interesting combination makes one wonders what he goes to face next. Eventually, we tend to arrived, and in concert would expect, that specific villa was really our final destination.
We have a tendency to parked our automotive and met a large guy at the door; he greeted us by nodding and dodged any sort of vocal communication. He ushered us into the villa where we have a tendency to were received by another couple of big men with a third older man slightly smaller in size but with a terribly commanding, demanding body language.
Aha, no marvel, this third person was truly a retired army General and the remainder of the crew was really his personal bodyguards. Ok, currently I got the message, but it’s no longer that comforting, I mean being stuck during a foreign land in the middle of nowhere amongst x-military hord with a dead stinking corpse of a goad barracking our means depositing a lingering foul smell in our nozzles, is not a terribly soothing experience when one considers the not very swish ride we have a tendency to just took.
Surprisingly the Mon General was terribly discrete and mild with us. He didn’t talk a lot of; I guess he wasn’t used to much talking in his previous career. He invited us to take our seats and commanded two of his bodyguards to bring a certain factor from the opposite room.
My eyes were by currently as open as an eagle eyes would be. I was tracing them like a hawk would vertically scope follow his prey, I was looking ahead to a scam, and was anticipating all kinds of things, thus I was extremely vigilant and on my toes.
The 2 huge guys came out of the area carrying a box that looked sort of a post workplace box, every one carried one aspect, oh boy, what have we tend to here, I whispered. I swung my head and zoomed in toward what looked like a terribly satisfied, self content General, sitting with his right leg resting on the right arm of his armchair. He stood up slowly and moved towards the box that was locked with a paddle lock. He grabbed a key out of his pocket and unlocked it, the box was stacked from finish to finish with what I recognize as cash packs wrapped in brownish waxed papers, the packs were all totally sealed and unhampered with and by no means spoilt in any form or kind. The general then asked one in every of his bodyguards to bring him a knife and a fork, and i got even a lot of anxious now, said to myself, hmm, looks like there is visiting be some type of sacrificial ceremony, wonder who’s going to be the sacrifice… (Just joking).
The final randomly slashed the knife into one among the packs gap it whereas still within the metal box, He then grabbed many of what looked sort of a bank note papers from the pack, and the colour of the bank note like papers was totally black. This can be very exciting, I was watching with my eyes absolutely opened and dazed to that have. He then took out of his pocket a very tiny bottle within it one quarter of some liquid I even have no plan what it had been. Then, he ordered a plate, currently with the plate request I started putting it together making an attempt to work out what on earth is he going to try and do with a knife, a fork and a plate, and what’s that issue in that little bottle, may it be spicing liquid for a starchy meal. No thanks, I am not that hungry, I thought to myself.
Now throughout all of those events the final didn’t utter a word, deadly silent operation it was.
He “the general” ordered some water they got for him in an empty one liter plastic water bottle. He poured some of that water within the plate and then added a number of that secret answer he had within the tiny bottle, then he took six black paper notes and placed it in the plate whereas soaking it in the water using the fork and he was careful to not accidently bit the water solution. I tell you, I was staring at the plate and watching the entire process like I was gazing into a crystal ball, then the final stood aside and shortly chatted with my friend waiting for 10 minutes he exclaimed till things become prepared, once 5 minutes or therefore the colour of black started fading from the paper notes and gradually it started developing into guess what? Well you guessed it. It absolutely was dollar bills, yes, a One hundred greenback bills. I tell you this factor got me additional excited than watching the first Indiana Jones and also the lost Ark of the Covenant movie…
By now, I was tummy talking to myself asking what I have got myself into, what they’re expecting from me to try to to.
Well I didn’t have to wait for long for the answer, The overall broke the deadly silence and asked me if I would like to examine it, lucky me, thanks to my background I am very familiar with dollar notes and it is not very simple to fool me with a faux one since my family was within the banking business and our family institution was appointed and acknowledged by central bank of my country to test forged bucks in my city for many years…
The greenback notes were totally genuine and when they dried it by an exponent they attach the notes to it to dry, I checked it personally and it had been real bank notes, a lot of than that, it had been brand new with sequencing serial numbers, I nodded my head acknowledging to the final that its genuine, and the final sat into his armchair and paused himself for a heavy question, I held my breath waiting to listen to his request. He said to me, dear Mr. Adam, we tend to have around 30 million of this dollar and we are out of solution of which we tend to cannot develop our notes without, we are searching for the source of this solution and our mutual friend informed us you’ll be the one who can find the provider.
I thought very rigorously before I answered, but eventually I needed to answer and it’d be terribly embarrassing to have a negative answer. Thus, I begin by asking the final consent for keeping a sample of the solution and the cash with me, the overall was kind enough to provide me all of the six items as a sample but explained that the solution is terribly valuable to him and he merely cannot afford to spare any little drop of it., I understood after all, I mean, after what I saw, I would not do otherwise myself…
I frankly answered the overall that I do not understand of any immediate provider for that answer and that i don’t even recognize what is its composition, but I do know many people around the globe and many scientists from all walks of life, which I would do my best to locate a supplier for him and promised to keep him updated through our mutual friend.
I was led back to our ride and resumed our journey back to the hotel, I left Acra the terribly next day with so a lot of on my mind, and that i was totally charged with an intention to grasp a lot of regarding this case, realize the answer, even create some good cash, since the final offered to speculate a number of his millions in any project I opt for if I successfully got him the solution.
And therefore the ordeal started. What happened next was an ordeal, a check of faith to me.
I spent therefore several years looking out for the truth and looking for that magical answer, however to my avail, I failed, mind you I do not take much pleasure into accepting failure…
Once this solo real incident, I spent many years searching for the truth behind it and stumbled upon crooks of all levels the lousy and the very skilled ones, however I never found the name of that solution. Thought it condoled me to fall upon a story told to me by one anonymous supply, that the origin of that cash was many intelligence agencies who use this cash to fund their underground operations, being coupes, insurgencies, secret wars and all sorts of dirty business that they avoid using traceable money in funding…
Who am I to say No.
Having said that, the very fact that I was conscious of a genuine case just like the one I experienced in Ghana created me infact much additional tolerant to whatever scams I faced afterwards. It value me a ton of time and money searching for the reality, but all of what I came up with was scams, crooks, additional scams and crooks, some of the events I witnessed were comical, another were very dramatic, I met tons of folks who fell victims for international crooks, some of those previous victims became crooks themselves after they revealed they were simply framed, some lost their homes and businesses trying to chase that wild dream, some lost their best friends. Several ended up in jail, several others got killed, however, the story still lingers, and it is still terribly abundant alive the world.
Tons claim they need the black notes, heck some even claim there are different sorts of it, and completely different currencies and colors, on the opposite hand, several claim to possess the magical liquid and the drama goes on, while the only truth I personally will budge for is that I was lucky to witness one real operation performed before my naked eyes whereas the rest were scams. Be careful out there, do not fall a victim for chasing wild geese, and keep your feet on the bottom where treading is a lot of stable.
