1. "Mr. Ramsey. 2. Listen carefully! We are a group of individuals that represent 3. a small foreign faction. We
xxrespect your bussiness 4. but not the country that it serves. At this time we have 5. your daughter in our posession. She is safe and unharmed and 6. if you want her to see 1997, you must follow our instructions to 7. the letter. 8. You will withdraw $118,000.00 from your account. $100,000 will be 9. in $100 bills and the remaining $18,000 in $20 bills. Make sure 10. that you bring an adequate size attache to the bank. When you get 11. home you will put the money in a brown paper bag. I will call you 12. between 8 and 10 am tomorrow to instruct you on delivery. The 13. delivery will be exhausting so I advise you to be rested. If we 14. monitor you getting the money early, we might call you early to 15. arrange an earlier delivery of the money and hence a earlier 16. deliverypickup of your daughter. 17. Any deviation of my instructions will result in the immediate 18. execution of your daughter. You will also be denied her remains 19. for proper burial. The two gentlemen watching over your daughter 20. do not particularly like you so I advise you not to provoke them. 21. Speaking to anyone about your situation, such as Police, F.B.I., 22. etc., will result in your daughter being beheaded. If we catch you 23. talking to a stray dog, she dies. If you alert bank authorities, she 24. dies. If the money is in any way marked or tampered with, she dies. 25. You will be scanned for electronic devices and if any are found, she 26. dies. You can try to deceive us but be warned that we are familiar 27. with Law enforcement countermeasures and tactics. You stand a 99% 28. chance of killing your daughter if you try to out smart us. Follow 29. our instructions and you stand a 100% chance of getting her back. 30. You and your family are under constant scrutiny as well as the 31. authorities. Don't try to grow a brain John. You are not the only 32. fat cat around so don't think that killing will be difficult. Don't 33. underestimate us John. Use that good southern common sense of yours. 34. It is up to you now John! 35. Victory! 36. S.B.T.C"
