Dear Friend,My name is Francis Apa one of the special assistant to former president of Liberia Charles Taylor. Before now I was a member of the cabinet in previous years before he resigned by the intervention of united nation for peace and stability in the country of Liberia. We are presently now in the west coast of Africa were the Government has graciously offered us political asylum but our movements is completely restricted because my boss Mr. Charles Taylor will face trial in the world court for atrocity he committed while he was in power in Liberia.
However in the previous years I was in service in his government I made secret deposits of valuable cash worth $285M and other jewelries into the vaults of a classified security vault company known s Diplomatic Courier Finance Limited on behalf of President Taylor with specific instructions. I am sorry to say this now because the law of comma has hooked with my boss as United Nation and the American Government has freeze all his assets world wild with the exception of the $285M because I deposited the money on my name and not on my boss name. My intention now is to freight this money and other valuables0 out of Liberia anonymously to a trusted foreigner who can receive the consignment on my behalf; I assure you that there is absolutely no risk to you because nobody knows of the existence of these funds. If this offer is acceptable to you please contact me immediately also on this email address: email@example.com. For more information you can take look at the web site below.
