Agents:

We've received another message from our mole.

Dear Heisters,

Very good work today.  I was impressed that you were able to piece everything together so quickly.  I've given you everything that I have, you should be able to put it all together with the brains that you have.  It has been a pleasure and an honor helping you.  Don't let me down.

-TM

PS -- As to what happened in New York City today: I sent an agent with the message.  Last I heard they had been detained by the police.  Be warned, there are some that do not want this information out there.

It looks like from here we're on our own.

Is this the directorate's 'subtle' way of telling us that we shouldn't just be waiting for more information?

Seems this mole likes sending messages when there are only a few people here ...

Nope, someone was actually arrested. I don't know the details, but it makes perfect sense. After all, MacHeist members are rather shady, and also pretty badass.

I agree.

However, the comment "we have everything he has" implies we haven't fully solved the message within the fortune teller pdf. This message was also sent after we solved the WoW stuff so clearly there is more to be solved.

Remember the name used in DevonNote - Mission 4!!

(edit)  phillru - I stand corrected

The loot says Mission 4. Is this the last official mission?

Nah, that's from a last minute switch around with the loot. Mission 4 is still incoming.

Ergo, if I'm not mistaken, we still await a briefing.

I know a few people in the NYPD, should I pull some favors and have this looked into?

Haha, nah, I don't think this was that serious. But if I'm ever in deep trouble in NYC I'll hit you up.

Well the picture of the safe on the front page is moveable like the apple picture (funny I played with them a while ago and nothing was behind them.  Maybe something is there.

No. That's just a layer with the transparent pic of the safe...
In my opinion that's not of any importance.

"Only" the loot and the pdf file is behind it ...
