Mr. Ngor Johnson Samuel. email@example.com ATTN:, I am the former adviser on internal affairs and close confidant to Mr. Charles Taylor, the president of Liberia. He ( Mr. Charles Taylor ) has as a result of the trust and confidence he has in me, he mandated that i search for a reliable and trustworthy foreign partner, who will help receive some funds which he had in cash totalling sum of forty million, six hundred thousand united states dollars only (US$40.6m) into a personal or company bank account within or outside your country. As all their personal and family bank account within and outside the country have been frozen by the Liberian government. This money in question has been clearly moved and deposited with a finance/ security company in Spain. It may also interest you that he (Mr. Charles Taylor) and his family have since the inception of present democratic government, been placed on political asylum in Nigeria with their travelling passport seized pending when the current fund recovery face off between them and current democratic government is resolved, which from all indication will not exceed this year. He has decided to offer anybody who will be willing to render this tremendous assistance, twenty five percent (25%) and five (5%) will be set aside to cover any expenses incurred during this transactions. And seventy percent (70%) will be for me, to buy equity shares in your company or any profitable investment in your country under your supervision. This transaction involves no risk whatsoever as you will have no dealings with my country, Liberia. Rather you will deal directly with the finance /security company, which is where the money is, right now in Madrid, Spain.
