>>>>>[The individual who is being blackmailed is >>encrypted: Isao
Yamaguchi<<. The blackmailer has contacted him twice, on >>encrypted
time/date<< and >>encrypted time/date<<, both times to his home telecom
number, which is >>encrypted<<. If the blackmailer continues the pattern,
he will call again sometime late at night this weekend. You will not be
paid if the blackmailer detects you, regardless of whether or not you
succeed in tracing him, so use appropriate caution.

A retainer to cover your time:

blackmailer to be identified. A picture will do. The place the call
originated from will do if the place turns out to be one that suggests the
identity of the blackmailer: knowing it came from some random pay telecom
is of little help in and of itself.]<<<<<
