I have a new email address!
You can now email me at:

- My name is Mr.Paul Essien, a political activist and an attorney. I am a member of my party's executive committee.My aim of contacting you is to crave your indulgence to assist us in securing some funds abroad for safe keeping which incidentally was kept to help us finance the forth coming elections this 2008 December. Fortunately with my immediate assistance,and contact, we were able to deposit the money in a Bank security vault pending when the fund would be needed.The need to contact you arose from the fact that the present government is cracking down on the opposition and trying to trace all the funds that belong to it, if they succeed in tracing this fund to us, they will seize it and thereby incapacitating our campaign abilities.We wish to relocate this fund in a foreigner's name to avoid any trace. All I need from you is an assurance that you can handle the amount involved(US$19,500,000) comfortably and that I can also trust you with this arrangement. Be rest assured that there is no risk involved since I have taken care of everything. I want you to immediately inform me of your willingness in assisting and co-operating with us, so that I can send you full details of this transaction and we will make arrangement and discuss at length on how to transfer this funds.Please if you are not interested in this business, let me know in time, so that I can contact someone else.Yours sincerely,Paul Essien
