Re: Winslow Ellis
Dear Mr. Ellis:
As you know, I've always held your son in the highest esteem. It pains me to have to inform you of his involvement in various illegal and immoral money-making schemes on the Wessex campus. Details attached.
Winslow is at a critical juncture in his education and can not afford any blemishes on his record. Toward that end, I am offering to overlook his transgressions in exchange for a donation of $300,000 to the enclosed account number.
I trust you will take care of this matter in a timely fashion.
In the satisfying conclusion Sunday and Fred pull off the scam of the century -- and beat the blackmailers at their own game.
