For more than 20 years Jim Sanborn has screened and responded to thousands of inquiries related to his KRYPTOS sculpture at CIA Headquarters. In 2010 the artist set up a website to handle this work but it seems that the site has encouraged an overwhelming number of frivolous or debasing or hostile entries. This screening process has required a lot of time, energy and money and Jim cannot continue to do this in the same way.
For the above reasons the “www.kryptosclue.com” website has been shut down. To filter the number of KRYPTOS enquiries, insure a constructive dialogue, and defray the expense of the screening process, the following fee system has been established:
If an inquirer would like a short personal response via e-mail to their K4 solution a $50 fee will be charged. Mr. Sanborn will attempt to respond within approximately one week or at his earliest convenience. The fee shall cover an exchange of no more than two back-and-forth emails. Additional e-mails shall require an additional fee. Mr. Sanborn reserves the right not to respond to any e-mail in his sole discretion. If he chooses not to respond the fees will be returned. The content, detail and length of Mr. Sanborn’s response shall be determined solely by him.
PLEASE NOTE: THAT JIM SANBORN WILL NOT INTENTIONALLY REVEAL CLUES OR A SOLUTION TO THE REMAINING UNSOLVED K4 SECTION.
Jim's full name is Herbert James Sanborn Jr. for the recipients name, and he lives in Piney Point, Maryland in the United States.
