This money was deposited in a metal sealed boxes as consignments labeled '`FAMILY TREASURE` with the security company.
My only son, JOHN KELLY TAYLOR and I have met and agreed after consulting financial expert who humbly advised us that the best way to realize and safeguard this fund without British Authority being after the money or to the knowledge of the current Liberia government who had tactically frozen my Family`s assets,hence the need to involve a foreigner.
My HUSBAND was arrested in Nigeria/Cameroon border when he was running for his dear life as the whole world has communicated through BBC, CNN that the former President of Liberia has been arrested and he is currently facing trial in NETHERLANDS because of
the War crises in my Country. My reason of contacting you is based on the above stated fact: I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where the money could be transferred upon redeemed from the security company.
I want this fund to be moved to a safe country where people will not know us and for good investment.Please, if you are interested in helping my family to secure this money morally and financially, we will give to you 20% of the total sum, 70% will be for my family's investment in your country while 10% will be for refunding all expenses that might be Incurred during the process of this transaction.
