Dearest Beloved,

 I am Mrs. Jewel H. Taylor. (Formal First Lady, Republic of
Liberia, West Africa) an American- Liberian by birth and wife of embattled
President of War torn Liberian, Mr. Charles Taylor. I am an Economist by
profession. My husband has stepped down as the President of Liberian three years
ago, but matter weren’t helped when the UN special war crimes court in Sierra
Leone indicted my husband for war crimes in June last year 2005, demanding his
prosecution. I and my husband have been granted asylum in Nigeria for the past
three years, but I recoated my two sons (Williams and Charles Jr.)Immediately
in July 2004 to Sao Tome and Principle (a small oil Rich Island off the coasts
of West Africa).
They are currently in hiding there under new identities, awaiting the outcome of
events and what will become of me and my husband after the UN ( United Nation
)world tribunal has given there judgment. The reason is this: During the
political crisis some years ago in Sierra Leone (a West African Country Rich in
Diamonds), my husband was actively involved.

However, Late last year, my husband entrusted some money netting a total of
US$22,500,000.00 (twenty two  Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars only).
This money he moved into a foreign Security financial company for protective
custodyunder a different name and also declear it as family treasures/valuables
so that they will not know the rear contents of the deposit for security reasons
somewhere in Africa. Now, we are not allowed to travel out easily again because
of the current political situation in Sierra Leone and UN sanction. This is why
I need you to please either travel for the claim of the money and subsequently
deposit same in a reputable bank there for onward transfer to your account. It
was registered as personal family effects, it is in a box, but it contains a
sum of $22.5 million dollars cash, we do so that it ! will not raise eye
brow,and it will not accumulate much demurrage.

Once you show interest, I will direct you to my lawyer who will guide you
towards securing the deposit with all the paper work hence I will not be able
to prosecute the project from here, I am willing to forfeit 30 percent of the
funds to you believing you will hold 70 percent on trust for me until we are
able to leave here to join you under new identities.
My first son Williams is 27years old (an Economist) and Charles Jr. is only 21
years old. My Daughter Helen died in October 1999 from complication of

I will advise that every correspondence should be by mail only for security
reasons as my calls are been tapped / monitored now. If you cannot help us
simply destroy this and forget I ever contacted you.
May God guide you in whatever you decided and
thank you for taking out time to read this request? Fondest

Best Regards,
Mrs. Jewel Helen Taylor.
