Voice message: Randy's office
Sam received a voice message from Richard at Randy's office.
Hey Sam, it's Richard. Ah, Randy asked me to call. You're a hard man to track down these days. Now listen, I've got some good news. You know that box company investment that Randy suggested, the one that burnt down? Well, the insurance payout has come through for you. And it's a nice little earner too, a lot better than your severance from Oceanic. Now, I'll need instructions from you, whether you want me to reinvest the money or just transfer it to you. Ok? I understand you have a few expenses at the moment. Give us a call when you can, alright? Bye mate.
Sams's desk: email
Thanks for the holiday tip but I don't reckon I'll follow it up. To be honest, being all the way out here has made me a bit homesick. Speaking of which - did you get onto mum? Is she still speaking to me?
- Email from Sam to Randy, subject: "Payout":
I got your message (sorry for the email - I can't make phone calls out here). That's great news about the box company payout - the money'll come in handy now I'm no longer at Oceanic. Let me know what I should do about the tax situation.
- Email from Tracey to Sam, subject: "Your Mum":
I called your mum. She was relieved to hear you were OK. You're right - she's a worrier these days but she means well. She's invited me around for Christmas day. I can't resist her homemade rumballs so I said yes. You're going to owe a very big Christmas present when you get back (and me too for that matter).
- Email from "Unkown" to Sam, no subject:
Sam received another anonymous email, this time containing a long string of numbers and lowercase letters. In each line that contains letters, they can be rearranged to spell out various numbers. The numbers are 12, 15, 22, 5, 25, 15, 21, 13, 1, 4, 12, and 25. Using simple number/letter replacement (a=1, b=2, ...), the numbers become "Love you madly", the phrase Sam thought he heard Sonya say in the first clue hunt video.
The website about the Sunda Trench in Sam's web browser is found to contain a faint grid of numbers in the lower right corner of the page (after scrolling down).
