Hi guys. Long time no talk on the OI forum.

Guys, I could not make this up. Photos of the find have been promised. But I have also recived threats if I publish them.

I'll let you know as it develops. :roll:

Andrew

Andrew,

Don't bother with those pics. They're guaranteed bogus, and it isn't worth any of those apparent threats.

:lol:

Send me the photos and I'll publish them instead of you. You accidentally hit the "forward" button instead of delete.

On second thought, post the photos. I'm anxious to see their photoshop skills (or lack thereof).

:lol:

Maybe the threats are just to make you think the photos are more likely to be genuine. Trouble with that possibility, is even if the photos are fake, whether or not you can prove it, and you publish them with or without proof of fakery, part of their approach may be to carry out at least one of those threats anyway, to try to bolster the photos' supposed genuosity in the minds of others. Fakers keep trying even in the face of proof of fakery--they hope to snare someone, even if it isn't the original target. Kind of like spammers who spew out tons of junk mail, since they know they often snag enough people somewhere to make it worth their while.

Tough call.

Now that the "threats" have been discussed on the forum, there will be a "million and one" records of this..yes :!:

What i cannot understand is this:
It was Will who contacted you in the first place, and gave us all some valuable "food for thought" or a very elaborate story (one that certainly had me thinking).
It was Will who in the last contact explained that he would produce for you some photographic evidence for you to post on your forum?

Now, we are being told that "when" the photos are shown / given to you, if they are posted XXXXXXXX this is where the threats come into play?

Well Andy, you have two options mate,
1) Play them / Him at their own game, and go "public"
2) fold, if the pix appear, keep them to yourself, and no-one is any the wiser, about the story and indeed O.I..the truth.

I will be watching this one develope.......or sink?

Well, I have been contacted by a man who lives in Scotland and he has shown me pictures of a platter, including some closeups. Not sure what to make of it... Not sure he is 'Will's' contact. But I intend to find out.

Stay tuned |o|.

And thanks Spymaster.

Cheers,

Andrew

Thanks Roger. The man in question has kindly suggested that we speak, and the more I exchange emails with him the more I am of the belief that he is not Will's guy. I can say that the platter is silver in colour, round, and has markings that reveal a suggested age of 800 years old. But I'll stop there as I am not at liberty to expose someone else’s research, although I fear that by bringing it up and not sharing more (not that I know any more – I don’t) I will sound like another group over in the RLC forum |o|.

Let me see what the gentleman is comfortable sharing. But it goes without saying that anything shared with me in confidence stays in confidence – sort of like what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. :wink:

Andrew

Hello Andrew,
Its nice to be back :D

Have you actually seen the photo's in the "physical" format, or were they e-mailed to you?

But it goes without saying that anything shared with me in confidence stays in confidence

Thats fair enough, and to be honest, one would expect this!

Can you elaborate on why you have an inclination that (the man in Scotland) is not Will's man?

If this man is NOT Will's man, can i ask "how does he fit into the story surrounding Will?
Has he given you information pertaining how he come to have access to this material, if he has, is this something that "you dont feel comfortable revealing"?

It would be very interesting to find out what / how much he (the man in Scotland) is prepared for you to say?

I await in anticipation.

Of course he's not connected with Will, because Will doesn't HAVE any photos. I have to wonder what a platter would have to do with Oak Island though, unless there's an engraving on it showing a map of the island with an X marked somewhere.

Why, it's what Will is serving his bullsh*t on, of course!

So I spoke to the chap in Scotland who owns the platter. Good guy. I can confirm that he has nothing to do with Will, and that he has happily authorised me to post photos of his platter in hopes that you guys offer some insight - sort of like an esoteric Antiques Roadshow :wink:

Seriously, I expect to recieve the more detailed photos shortly and will post them accordingly. It may be nothing, ot he may have found something interesint. We'll see.

Still waiting for Will....

Andrew
