"can’t you say that i am dead or MIA"

"you have yet to provide me with the lawyers mailing address
if you have thought to provide this for me then please be aware that never got it as yet"

This is an extremely long email chain, revolving around two documents that Andrew needed to sign and authenticate so that Adrian could receive a $10,000.00 deposit that their late mother paid to the Philippines Retirement Authority. This money was needed to take care of their mother's affairs in accordance with her wishes.

As usual, several of Andrew's claims are false:

"you have yet to provide me with the lawyers mailing address
if you have thought to provide this for me then please be aware that never got it as yet"

Andrew claims in his March 23rd email that he did not receive the lawyer's address. And yet we can clearly see it at the bottom of Adrian's March 20th email, above Adrian's signature (and more tellingly, above the two PDF attachments). Keep this in mind when Andrew later accuses the lawyer of "ineptitude".

Are we to believe that Andrew scrolled down to the bottom of the email and downloaded the two attachments without seeing the lawyer's address that was immediately above them?

Also, note the increasingly hostile and belittling tone Andrew takes in the March 23rd email when addressing his brother, and that Andrew thought it was acceptable to use this tone less than 2 weeks after Adrian watched his mother die in front of him (an event that took place after Adrian already spent weeks watching his comatose mother convulse in the ICU). Keep this in mind when Andrew tries to depict his brother as an aggressor and antagonist in future correspondances.

Finally, note that Adrian treated Andrew's claims about not getting the lawyer's address and "living on the street" at face value, despite their obvious ridiculousness. [Adrian usually goes out of his way to treat his brother like an adult, even when Andrew - older by 12 years - refuses to act like one. With his mother's funeral and burial expenses at stake, Adrian allowed himself to be disrespected in this manner. He took a different approach 5 years later when his own future was at stake.]

Andrew has never acknowledged his error, or apologized for it. As for the cruelty and disrespect, it's just part and parcel of having Andrew Camoens in your life, and he's never apologized for that either.

"a phone, a computer, internet, wifi, electricity, home address. i have had to live without any of these things for such a long time."

Andrew claims continually to not have a phone, computer, or "any technology". And yet the emails he writes stretch to four pages. He may not personally own a web-connected device, but clearly he has easy access to one in order to communicate in this manner. To whit: In 2009, "not owning" a phone meant Andrew used Adrian's. Andrew owed money to some of the people he was communicating with; and when Andrew dropped out of contact, Adrian was harassed for years as a result. The lesson here: Don't let Andrew use your phone.

"my only question at this point is can’t you say that i am dead or MIA
a thought comes to my head ...what happens if i really died.. no one would know or be notified then what happens to this lawyer.
she would never have been able to find me if i did not contact you."

This becomes a recurring comment throughout these email exchanges (and indeed, through Andrew's life): committing fraud or pressuring someone else to commit fraud for Andrew's convenience, or the idea that if Andrew simply disappears the problem will solve itself. Adrian's [frankly, overly polite] rebuttal that "if we were to tell the Philippines government you were dead, we'd have to produce a death certificate or some other kind of evidence" did not stop Andrew from proposing his fake death as a solution.

For what it's worth, both situations where Adrian needed to reach out to Andrew (obtaining the PRA deposit and completing his green card process) would have been much easier and less stressful if Andrew was in fact dead. It's not like Andrew ever brought anything but heartache and betrayal to his family's lives.

Justin Camoens Death Certificate

This is a copy of Justin Camoens' death certificate, that Adrian Camoens obtained for his brother Andrew at the latter's request.

A few years later, Andrew would accuse Adrian of "lying about dad's death, and therefore depriving me of getting closure." How is it possible to both lie about an event while also forwarding a medical and legal document summarizing it? What reason does Andrew have to continually attack his brother's character with false allegations?

"You, zenia, charles( the hairstylist) and I put up all the money."

Note: This email refers to a house in Brighton, MA that Andrew owned. In this email he confirms that his brother Adrian helped him purchase the house. The amount that Adrian loaned Andrew was $20,000.00 (Twenty Thousand Dollars), which represented almost 30% of the deposit. More information about the house, its sales history, and valuation can be found here.

"I keep thinking to myself that with all that you went through how much of a man you are, I can certainly can do the same. Thank you for being my inspiration. "

A rare email from Andrew where he paints Adrian in a positive light, doesn't attack Adrian's character with false allegations, and actually apologizes. This may have been the last apology Adrian ever received from his brother.

Christmas 1990

This is the Christmas card that Andrew sent his mother and brother in December of 1990 - almost two years after he dropped out of college. Note that he acknowledges the financial support he obtained from both his parents during this period.

The letter states that Andrew obtained $1500.00 from his father - aaccording to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, that would be the equivalent of $3,385.05 in 2022 when adjusted for inflation.

It's unclear how much money Andrew received from his mother, but the amount is believed to have been $2000.00. Andrew would cut his mother off completely a few years later once he secured his U.S. residency.

Dearest Mom and Adrian,

Hi How are you?
Fine I hope. Well I just recieved your check. thank you so much I started borrowing from people & now I can pay them back. I hate owing money plus you loose [sic] friends & w/ dad it's so uncertain when I can get money that my friends wonder if I can pay them back.
