Dear Sir

I personally decided to put in writing as below, the full details of this business proposal that I 
have been trying to explain to you. I have a re-profiling amount in an excess of US$500M, which I 
seek your partnership in accommodating for me. I am willing to give out 25% of this total sum to 
you for your quick assistance and partnership, 70% for me and while 5% should be set side for 
reimbursement of any unforeseen expenses we both might incure in the cause of this transaction. 
However, I sincerely seek your confidence in this transaction, which I am proposing to you.

My name is Steven, I am the personal assistance to the former President of Republic of Liberia 
(President Charles Taylor). President Charles Taylor decided on the 11th of August 2003 to go into 
exile in a neighboring country Nigeria to seek asylum.  Based on these developments, his various 
foreign bank accounts have been frozen and some are still under serious investigation. But in the 
light of all these happenings, President Charles Taylor was able, through the help of some loyalist 
succeeded to secretly move the sum of US$500M, on my name as the owner to a private security 
company vault where the final crediting is expected to be carried out later, but recently he has 
just been arrested and taken away. You can read more on CNN news of March 30, 2006. 

All the depositing documents of the above fund were on my name and they are still in my possession, 
What I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above quoted sum and I will arrange for 
the documentation which will enable the Security Company transfer / wire the fund to your bank 
account. I have decided to do this only with you and use this sum to relocate to European or 
American continent and never to be connected to any of President Charles Taylor's conglomerates. 
This transaction can be concluded within 2 weeks.

My questions are:-
 1. Can you handle this project?
 2. Can I give you this trust?
 3. can you keep this business as very confidential?
 4. If you can sponsor this transfer, Is 25% acceptable to you, as your commission?

Consider this and call me on 23417626382 for more discussion, so I can give you more clear 
explanations details and information about this transaction. I will also need your direct telephone 
and fax number for easy reach. Finally, it is my humble prayer that the information as contained 
herein is accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves. Please I 
need you to send me your telephone number so I can give you a call immediately for more discussion. 
As soon as I get your positive response, I will send you more information to you.

Best regard

Mr. Steven Ubaka
