FROM: MAJOR Ret, MARK A. SMITH
Sunday, 15 February 1998
This correspondence is being sent as a word of advice. You may heed it or disregard it. The following named individuals have at various times, in the last three years, claimed direct knowledge of American POWs in Southeast Asia. They have none, but they have stolen evidence, manufactured evidence and even tried to pass off a number of albino, half caste and even elderly folks with gray hair, as; "White," "Bachelor," "Blondes."
Should you be approached by some "expert" in the U.S. for funds to allow them to go to Cambodia or Vietnam and "check it out," I would recommend you refuse participation.
The following are the names of those participating in the scams:
(1) MR CHOUM
(2) MR MA NOON (LAO)
(3) MR PHEIM KAMON (LAO)
(4) BG MENG PENG
(5) CAPTAIN DARO
(6) LIEUTENANT DARA
(7) MAJOR TUNBORAN (SOMETIMES CALLED "GENERAL")
(8) BUON CHANH (LAO)
(9) DAVID NGOC (CANADIAN CITIZEN)
(10) KHAM PHY SISOVADY (USA)
(11) CAMPAY TEP SOVANN (FRANCE)
(12) SALY SAINMABUTH (AUSTRALIA)
(13) LOUG SINA (CANADA)
(14) BOUN HOEUGN (USA)
A word to the wise should be sufficient.
