Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Mr. Richard Snowe Personal Aide to the former Liberian President Mr. Charles Taylor.

It is no news that due to the resolution of the United Nations over the prolonged civil war in Liberia that his Excellency Mr. Charles Taylor was ordered and advised to surrender and hand over power to his Deputy which cumulated to the hand over power to the present democratic government now in Liberia. He is however fortunate to have been granted asylum by a fellow West African country, Nigeria.

As a matter of fact, Charles Taylor and his entire family members including me and my family flew into Nigeria on the 11th of August 2003 after which his wife divorce him and left him in Nigeria to go back to Liberia. Though other members of our families are still in Calabar a town in Eastern part of Nigeria. The former President have what I will call his family last hope of survival (money) in amount of $115,000,000M to be transfer to any foreign and trusted person who will be ready to Assist him to invest this fund into any good business, as he can no longer have any other means of livelihood.

On our arrival in Nigeria, he was promised a Peaceful and Safe Stay, but it was barely 5 days of our arrival that the Nigerian Secret Security Services swung into action to disarmed his special security guards that came into the country with him. Asides this disarmament, we were already under serious security watch and monitoring.

As it may interest you to know this money was meant for purchase of Ammunition for the former president during Liberian civil war when he was in power and as a normal routine the money was lodged with Security Finance Company in ACCRA GHANA pending when the Ammunitions are supplied to his special trained military in some where in Guinea before the money can be transferred to the supplier account.

To the glory of God Mr. Taylor was able to secure the funds on his name before The president of the United State of America, George W. Bush and the Economy Community of West Africa State asked the former President Charles Taylor of Liberia to quit the seat of power and go to exile for peace to reign in Liberia.

Now Nigerian Government have agreed on Saturday being 25th of March 2006 to turn Mr. Taylor over to the Liberian Government which they did by arresting him on a boarder between Nigeria and Cameroun of which I escape with all vital documents of Mr. Taylor so that he could face a U.N.-backed tribunal in Sierra Leone for war crime charges which he is now currently facing but before this new unfolding events. Though our original plan was after successful crossing to Cameroun un-noticed, I will proceed to Accra Ghana to take the task of arranging for the immediate evacuation of the US$115 Million Dollars in whishes he deposited in the custody of Security Finance Company before it will be discovered by International Community or Liberian Government.
