We have been writing each other since the mid-90s. I actually feel sympathy for him because I know from experience how someone can get entrapped by Soviet/Russian intelligence.   He’s not the first, nor will he be the last, American intelligence officer to be recruited by a hostile intelligence service.

My latest communication from him is letter dated February 8, 2012. It is in reply to a letter I sent him in  January, 2012. I hadn’t written him in a few years, but I wanted him to know I published ROOFMAN as an ebook. If he had a way to read it, I would send him a free copy.

Here is his letter:

Here is a transcript of his letter:

Dear Roofman,

I was happy to get your (post) card and the news that you’ve got IT published.

The BoP (Bureau of Prisons) so far isn’t into the digital age far enough for me to be able to get it, but progress is underway and who knows what the future may hold? (Most BoP prisoners have access to a form of email now, though I have been barred for no apparent reason. Bernie Madoff has it though.)

Hope your reviewers are happy and asking for more!

Regards,

Rick

P.S. I like your Darwinian T shirt (So do I)

A link to my website http://roofmanthespy.com/ where my first letter to Mr. Ames and his reply can be found. Click on the page “Interesting Stuff” and then on “Letter to a Spy” for my letter to him. Click on “Re: From a Spy” for his reply to me.

I will be sending Mr. Ames another letter soon, enclosing business cards along with a reminder to let me know when BoP finally goes digital.  I do hope his incarceration goes well. Like I said, I really feel for the poor guy.

I’m the guy without the helmet. I have an oddly shaped head; it’s long and narrow. When I joined the New York/New Jersey Bandits, along with home and away uniforms, I was issued a piece of headgear that was far too circular to fit my head comfortably. It hurt  so much that I only wore the damn thing when I was on the ice. Had to protect my brains. I didn’t want my egg-head to crack open and spill its yoke.

This picture and ice hockey are very much parts of ROOFMAN the true story. The only reason I did not include them in the ebook is because I figured no one would believe me. Like I said, fact IS stranger than fiction. So here, on my blog, is the story behind the story.

I still have my jerseys, by the way; and notice the bandit and his masked face peeking just above the boards. Cool, huh?

 This post shows a major conflict between me and my FBI case officer, Mike Berns, in particular and, by extension, the entire Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Bureau wants a list I have in my possession, but I don’t want to give it to them. Mike uses all the power of his agency to try to “convince” — read that “intimidate” — me  turning over to the FBI a list of innocent Americans. (more…)
