Good day, 
I know you will be surprised to receive this letter.  First I must introduce myself. I am Mr Bodioe 
 of the Republic of  Liberia (West AfricanRepublic) and the Chief Security Adviser to Charles 
 former presidentof the Republic of  Liberia, who was forced to resign on August 11,2003 bythe 
United states
 Of America and other African States for the sake of peace..after fourteen years of ravaging civil 
war in 
For fourteen years today there has always been growing opposition and rebellion against charles 
Earlier,  the advancement of the rebels toward the capital Monrovia has been unstoppable because 
ofthe support
 the rebels receive from countries which are against Taylor and his policies.Due to this war on the 
23rd Febuaury,2003, 
I was mandated by the president to proceed to South Africa, to purchase ammunition from the Arms 
Manufacturing Company 
In SouthAfrica (ARMSCO) to fight the rebels.This mandate and instruction was backed up with US$52. 
(Fifty TwoMillion  United States Dollars)in cash, and was delivered by diplomatic immunity into 
South Africa.
I have already purchased the first batch of ammunition at the sum of US$30Million (Thirty Million 
United States Dollars),
which was delivered in June, and was negotiating for the purchase of the second batch when the 
president was forced to 
go on exile.I saw this as a golden opportunity to divert this money.I have already deposited this 
balance of US$22 Million
(Twenty twoMillion United States Dollars) with a security Company, without declaring the actual 
content of the consignment. 
I am presently residing here as arefugee. The financial laws of South Africa do not allow a refugee 
to operate  a bank account. 
In view of this, coupled with the way the money was acquired,I have decided not to invest this fund 
in South Africa, and solicit
for the assistance of a reliable and trustworthyinternational businessman who can assist me to 
transfer this fund overseas for investment.
For your efforts, I am prepared to offer you 25% of the total sum whileif you will assist me 
transfer this money into your overseas account.  
I have also set aside 5% of the total money for expenses that might be incurred during the process 
of this transfer, and 70% will be for my 
investment in a profitable venture in your country or anywhere else you may advice.From the above, 
you will understand that my entire life 
and future depends on this amount, as such I shall be very grateful if you can assist me.Please 
note that this transaction is risk-free. 
The major thing I demand from you is absolute assurance that the money will be safe when 
transferred into your account.  If you can be of
assistance, kindly contact me using the above phone number or my email address. Also send your 
private fax and phone numbers for easier 
communication and confidentiality of this transaction.
