Good Day to you, It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which i intend to establish in your country Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life My name is Mr. Michael Bono from Liberia the son of Mr. Benson Bono The former personal assistant to Charles Taylor the former Liberian president who is now in Holland facing war crime charges. My father Mr. Benson Bono has been in custody since the fallen regime of Charles Taylor so last week when I went to visit my father in prison he told me about the deposit of 9,000.000 (nine million united states dollars) he made in a bank in the middle East, now due to the problem he has with our country he can never have access to transfer or withdraw the money. Therefore I need your assistance as a foreign partner who can help me bring this fund out from the bank; all I need is your names and account information, contact numbers and also your valid identification to present to the bank so that the bank can transfer the money into your account. By assisting me I will offer you 25% of the total fund which 75% will be for me and my mother to invest in your country bear in mind that there is no risk involve beacause the deposit certificate issued to my father by the bank during the time of deposit is now in my custody and I will also send it to you as soon as I receive your positive reply via my alternative e mail address(email@example.com) Thanks and may God bless you Yours Sincerely Michael Bono
