Dear Friend,
First I apologize for this unsolicited letter to you. Email may not be the most conventional way of approach for a transaction of this magnitude, but I do have limited choice. My name is Greg Marshal. I was the director of special duties to former President Charles Taylor in Liberia. Our administration was ousted out of office to pave way for general elections. Now a democratically elected government headed by Mrs. Ellen Sirleaf Johnson is in power, and we the former members of government are no longer in Liberia. We are currently in exile outside our country.
I am requesting your cooperation for immediate acceptance of my US$10,000,000.00 {Ten Million United States Dollars Only}. The US$10 Million is a reward my former boss President Taylor gave me shortly before we left office. Persons with exile/asulym status are prohibited by the exile/asylum laws from engaging in financial/business transaction, hence I cannot handle the transaction on my own due to my exile/asylum status. I therefore request that you receive and keep the funds on my behalf until I am able to take back control of it in a short period of time.
Please reply me urgently so you can receive the amount into your custody. Once you receive the money, feel free to keep 30% of it for yourself as your reward for a job well done, while the balance will be kept for me until I am able to take control of it.
I can make available to you copy of my international passport to assure you of my honesty and good faith.
To facilitate the transaction, please send me the following information:
1. Your full name
2. Your residential and office address
3. Your direct phone and fax numbers.
4. Your age, sex, and occupation
Kindly reply to my email address as soon as possible:
Please keep everything about this transaction completely confidential until the fund gets to your custody.
Yours faithfully,
Greg Marshal.
