Dear Friend, I am John Smith by name,married with two daughters.I was a business man in Monrovia Liberia who was into the sales of medical equipments for 25yrs. I am 53yrs of age and owned a company of my own until the present Government seized my freedom and company due to their political reforms. I would need your utmost confidentiality and complete honesty in the transfer of this funds.I would need to tell you that all required arrangements have been made for the transfer of this funds through a diplomatic courier service to your secured receiving address.Most African leaders have used this means to ship out funds and this the safest means I can use to transfer this funds to you. However,shipment would commence 48hrs once I am in receipt of your acceptance to receive this funds. The courier company is not aware of the content as funds but the package would be marked "Diplomatic Documents" and it should be within the both of us the content until you receive the package. A friend has promised to help secure an immunity to cover the shipment once all modalities are met. They offer door to door delivery as p.o box is not acceptable.The said funds is total $US7.7Million all in 100 dollar bills,I would be willing to give you 25% while the rest would be invested till I can travel to meet with you. Can you handle this funds?Can you be trusted? I would be waiting for your details so that we can proceed. Regards, John Smith
