Hello I will send you messages from time to time, they will get trickier and more difficult. I can't tell you my name. You will have to do the cipher. This one is quit easy and won't be that challenging. But when you answer the question I have given you please be honest. Thank you. - Unknown.

The binary is very easily decoded into an ASCII message:

I know this seems odd but I need you to carry on my secret information. My name is Jack Charleston. And I come from a line of infamous burglars. Can you keep my secret safe or will you betray me? I need to know thank you.

Whether the message itself has any hidden meaning...

There is a minor league baseball player named Jack Charleston. There's no information about him being a descendant of infamous burglars.

I don't know if there is anything else here. Maybe it makes sense in the context of the author's other puzzles, which seem to be part of an ongoing series.

To answer the "question": Sure, I'll keep it safe. Bring on the next puzzle!

  • $\begingroup$ Very good! I hope you enjoyed it and I know it was easy I just wanted to start the series in a mysterious way. Trust me they will get harder! $\endgroup$ – Isaac Soto May 31 '17 at 22:56
  • $\begingroup$ There is no reference to Jack Charleston. Also these are not part of the other ongoing series. Thank you! $\endgroup$ – Isaac Soto Jun 7 '17 at 16:49
