Dear Friend, I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise considering the fact that we have not met before. My name is MR,ELUCHI MARK ABIA.I am a personal attorney (LAWYER) to the former president of Liberia (Charles McArthur Taylor) who is currently on trial for war crimes Charges in Hague (The Netherland.) I am truly looking for someone that will assist me with a business that has to do with a large amount of Money which was deposited in a security company abroad. I got your contact over the internet during my search for a person that will assist me in this business. This became necessary as i do not want anybody known to me or my family to be associated with this money for security reasons which i will disclose to you later. I want you to note that this business will benefit both of us and that it is 100% risk free.However,you must confirm your ability to handle this because it involves a large amount of money. (TWENTY-FIVE MILLION,FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) is what is involved. This Funds was boxed and shipped to a security company abroad at the peak of a political uprising that rocked my country(LIBERIA) few years ago. which has landed my boss,(Charles McArthur Taylor)in the Hague facing charges for crime against humanity. I need a trustworthy person to proceed to the place of the security company in order to claim the fund and afterwards,I will come to join you in your country and we will start a joint business venture as i do not have the intention of bringing the funds back to Africa. All I need from you is as follows: 1. your confirmation of your ability to handle this business for me. 2. Your word that you will keep this business as confidential as possible at all times until we conclude this business. 3. Your telephone and fax numbers for communication. 4. Your full permanent address. As soon as I get the above information from you, I will disclose to you. the name and the country of the security company, the contact of the Diplomat that i have hired to assist us in this business, as well as your Name and particulars to the security company as my representative and my partner to enable them contact you accordingly. I am Currently residing in Burkina Faso(A small Country in West African Coast) As we make progress,I will give to you "SOME CODE NUMBERS" to enable you claim the fund on my behalf.
