Dear David.

What has happened?
It was only a few days ago (posted 25 Aug 1999 ?) that I found your ad
in www.loot.com:

>   Olympus Zuiko, 350mm / f2.8 telephoto lens, original aluminium case, 
>   amazing lens, £1,900. 01768 774324 or email: keswick@xxxxxxxxxxx 
>   South, North West, East Midlands, Web edition - 6 days old

and now in uk.adverts.other I read:

>'From: "David" <keswick@xxxxxxxxxxx>
>Newsgroups: uk.adverts.other

I feel terribly sorry for you. I own the same rare black lens as
yours, so I know what loss it is.
I would also like to know what happened.
Have you been conned by a potential buyer or what?
Please let me have the serial number (or part of it) - just in case...

BW, Frank.
