I personally decided to put in writing as below, the full details of this 
business proposal that I have been trying to explain to you. I have a 
re-profiling amount in an excess of US$500M, which I seek your partnership 
in accommodating in this transaction. I am willing to give out 25% of this 
total sum to you for your quick assistance and partnership, 70% for me and 
while 5% should be set side for reimbursement of any unforeseen expenses 
we both might incure in the cause of this transaction. However, I 
sincerely seek your confidence in this transaction, which I am proposing 
to you.

My name is Steven, I am the personal assistance to the former President of 
Republic of Liberia (President Charles Taylor). President Charles Taylor 
decided on the 11th of August 2003 to go into exile in a neighboring 
country Nigeria to seek asylum.  Based on these developments, his various 
foreign bank accounts have been frozen and some are still under serious 
investigation. But in the light of all these happenings, President Charles 
Taylor was able, through the help of some loyalist succeeded to secretly 
move the sum of US$500M, on my name as the owner to a private security 
company vault where the final crediting is expected to be carried out 
later, but recently he has just been arrested and taken away. You can read

are still in my possession, What I need from you is to stand as the 
beneficiary of the above quoted sum and I will arrange for the 
documentation which will enable the Security Company transfer / wire the 
fund to your bank account. I have decided to do this only with you and use 
this sum to relocate to European or American continent and never to be 
connected to any of President Charles Taylor's conglomerates. This 
transaction can be concluded within 2 weeks.

the secrecy it deserves. Please I need you to send me your telephone
