Greetings to you and your family. I want you to read
this mail with a compassionate heart and understanding
that any action you take is geared towards rendering
humanitarian assistance to a man who is in distress
with his family.

My name is Mr.Tom Ebewele, a Liberian( now
resident in South Africa) and former aide
to Charles Taylor former President of Liberia. I was
his right hand man before he was asked to step down
from power and he is presently in asylum in Nigeria. I
was handling the diamond sales on behalf of President
Taylor who in turn supplies ammunition to the rebels,
the RUF (Royal United Force) group of Sierra Leone
This is what the international community and United
Nations code-named: Conflict Diamond.

It was while I was discharging this duty that I
diverted the sum of US$ 15,000,000.00 (fifteen Million
United States Dollars) for myself. I deposited the
money contained in trunk boxes in a Security Company
as artifacts to avoid prying eyes in Johannesburg, South
Africa and travelled back to my country where I continued
with my duties.

I informed President Taylor then, that the
United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSL) seized
the diamond consignment and made report to the United
Nations. It was based on this diamond dealings
involving President Taylor that the United Nations
imposed sanctions on Liberia recently and that led to
his subsequent removal from power.

Now that he is out of power, my aim is to look for a
trusted foreign partner outside to help me move the
fund out for investment. It is based on my decision to
move the fund out for investment that I am contacting
you to assist me in taking the funds to your country
.All you need do is to fly down to claim the  Boxes
from the Security Company and open a bank account
through which the money will be lodged before transfer
into your nominated Bank account.

I am willing to compensate you with 30% of the total
sum for your assistance and want to let you understand
that the future of myself and family depends solely on
this money .In this transaction confidentiality is
very essential for us to achieve
our goal. It is important that you maintain utmost
good faith and trust .You must also not circumvent the
transaction in any way.

In conclusion I will like you to understand that you
shall bear no risk whatsoever in this business and as
such there is nothing for you to be afraid of.
I await your swift response this
