(Moderator - REVISED VERSION)

STEP ONE
Send and email to the International Monetary Fund (mschrader(?)imf [dot] org & publicaffairs(?)imf [dot] org). The body of the email should state something like:

"I understand that the IMF may extend a loan to Iceland. I respectfully ask that one of the terms of that loan be that the Icelandic Government honour a guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank covering deposits in its Island subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited. The details of this bank, which is in provisional liquidation can be found at: http://www.fsc.gov.im/ViewNews.gov?page=lib/news/fsc/kaupthingsingerf3.xml"

STEP TWO
Send an email to the Icelandic Government. The body of the email should state something like:

I respectfully ask that the Icelandic Government honour a guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank covering deposits in its Island subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited. My life savings of 10 years are in that bank. In return I commit to traveling to Iceland on vacation to support the country as it rebuilds its economic strength.

Please be informed that I have instructed the International Monetary Fund to ensure that the terms of any loan to the Icelandic government include that the Icelandic Government honour a guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank covering deposits in its Island subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited."

Pick your favorite Icelandic politician from http://www.althingi.is or send to all of the below like me:

thback(?)althingi [dot] is
geir(?)althingi [dot] is
valgsv(?)althingi [dot] is
sturla(?)althingi [dot] is
arj(?)althingi [dot] is
ko(?)althingi [dot] is
ems(?)althingi [dot] is
khg(?)althingi [dot] is

STEP THREE
Send an email to the UK government (ministers(?)hm-treasury [dot] gsi [dot] gov [dot] uk). The email should state:

"I ask that the UK government, acting in its capacity of representing the Isle of Man in relation to the provisional liquidation of Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) contacts the International Monetary Fund immediately, and asks that one of the terms of any loan be that the Icelandic Government honour a guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank covering deposits in its Island subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited."

STEP FOUR
Send an email to one James Anthony "Tony" Brown telling him that you have matters in hand, and that he needn't worry himself about the international political stage. Point out that as he is an electrician who remains the proprietor of Tony Brown Electrics in Castletown that you understand that he has other demands on his time.

All agreed with your step-by-step plan save for Step 4. We all knew IoM was not Geneva.

But you are right, it's an IMF (and possibly WTO) issue now. I've just blogged on why at "Iceland's Theft - The Good News"

Plea to ALL KSF IOM depositors

I urge ALL of the 10,000 depositors in KSF IOM to send emails to the IMF asking that any loan given to Iceland is conditional on the Icelandic government, which nationalized Kaupthing HF, honouring its obligations to pay KSF IOM depositors their FULL money back.

If we ALL do this, then the IMF will get 10,000 emails and won't be able to ignore us. I think that this is currently our ONLY hope.

Remember to configure your emails for a read receipt. I actually found that at least two out of the bunch of parliament members actually read and hit the respond button. They may not allways answer back, but at least inform you that they have read your emails.

This way they know that you know they have taken notice of your plight without having to actually reply.

How do we configure e mails to give a read receipt? Not very computer literate and propping eyes open with matchstickjs!

If you are using Outlook, you should have a tab called Options on the main menu bar on the top.
If you click it and open it, a window displays where you can select to receive a confirmation when the message is received or read

I have emailed all three and feel so much better at actually doing something even if it is just hitting the "send button" on all these email.
"Thank you" is not adequate to all the hard working people keeping this website updated.

Everyone can do this, just copy/cut and paste into these email address's its that simple. I have sent emails to everyone listed here and MP's in the UK...If you are an Ex-pat, remember your last UK MP is still your MP for 15 years after you have left the UK. He/She has a duty of care for you..make them take up your case, they must, unless they too want to end up in court. This cannot be left alone we must all keep up the pressure on everyone, until we all get all our money back! On every email use this slogan :

                      WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK
        ANYTHING LESS THAN 100% IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

I see a headline... British savers who stand to lose everything ,abandoned by Gordon Brown,Turn to Icelands PM for help.!
Maybe he might help just to get one over on Gordon especially if he were to get an IMF loan on condition that he bails us out ..or am I fantasising?

Mike - my letters:

A. to : mschrader(?)imf [dot] org
I understand that the IMF may extend a loan to Iceland.
I respectfully ask that one of the terms of that loan is that the Icelandic Government should honour a parental guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank hf covering deposits in its subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited. The details of this bank, which is in provisional liquidation can be found at:
http://www.fsc.gov.im/ViewNews.gov?page=lib/news/fsc/kaupthingsingerf3.xml"

I personally stand to loose the majority of my life savings if this bank goes into liquidation. Iceland has now nationalised Kauthing Bank hf in Iceland. So the Icelandic government must be made to stand behind the parental guarentee.

regards,

B. to your favourite Icelandic PM: geir(?)althingi [dot] is

Dear Sir,

I personally stand to loose a significant part of my life savings if Kaputhing Singer and Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited goes into liquidation.

As a depositor at the Isle of Man branch of KSF, you will be aware that I have a parental guarantee on my savings from Kauthing Bank hf.

I wish to inform you that I have asked the International Monetary Fund to ensure that the terms of any loan to the Icelandic government include that the Icelandic Government honour this parental guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank covering deposits in its Island subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited.
I would appeciate your confirmation that Iceland will honour this parental guarantee.
Regards,

C. to UK treasury: ministers(?)hm-treasury [dot] gsi [dot] gov [dot] uk

Dear Sir/Madam,

I personally stand to loose a significant part of my life savings if Kaputhing Singer and Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited goes into liquidation.

I ask that the UK government, acting in its capacity of representing the Isle of Man in relation to the provisional liquidation of the bank contacts the International Monetary Fund immediately, and asks that one of the terms of any loan be that the Icelandic Government honour a parental guarantee given by Kaupthing Bank hf, covering deposits in its Island subsidiary Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) Limited.

I look forward to your early response.

Step four is a reference to the fact that Tony Brown, Chief minister on the IOM is actually an electrician who occasionally moonlights as a minister......
