Dear Sir, I am very sorry to intrude into your mailbox.Sometimes in ones life, when you find yourself in a strange/ difficult position like mine you surely will be running from pillar to post.I got your contact address on my desperate search for a reliable person/company for investment partnership with my client. My name is Dr Alexander Taffa, I am the personal attorney to Mr. Charles Taylor, the immediate past president of Liberia, now on political asylum in Nigeria. Due to pressure from the USA and other countries, my client decided to step down as these countries kept on inciting her citizens against my clients government .This is why I'm appealing to you to now come to his aid and help his family.My client has disclosed to me about US$38m(Thirty-eight million united states dollars),.which he deposited with a prime security company here in Spain.These were funds he realized during his time as a rebel leader in Liberia and he was controlling 78% of the diamond and gold mines in Liberia( you can check out the records), this was even before him becoming the President . Due to security reasons and in a bid to securing the deposit,he reached an agreement with the security company that his Foreign Investment Partner will come forward to submit his banking details for onward transfer of the consignment.The USA govt has presently placed a US$2m ransome to kidnapp my client from Nigeria,where he is presently on asylum, to face war crime tribunal in Sierra-leone West Africa.So,please help me as this is the only fund left for the family. At this stage,I require your assistance to help me act as his Foreign Investment Partner,which is what the security company requires to release the consignment in his absence,as he cannot be able to come out of Nigeria at the moment,where he is granted political asylum.As soon as your interest is confirmed,i will commence the process of drawing up the partnership agreement between you and my client,to enable the security company release the consignment to you,afterwhich, an investment proposal will be drawn up between your goodself and myself,representing my client. Please see this as an appeal from a sinking family that will also benefit you.My client stepped down from power to save lives from being lost in his country and i think he is worthy of his own life and family being helped and saved. I await your response to this most confidential and risk free business proposal.Upon the receipt of your response and your indicated interest,the sharing method and all other modalities for the effective and efficient transfer of the fund into your designated account will be spelt out to you. You can contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely yours DR.ALEXANDER TAFFA
