DEAR SIR,

MY NAME IS AKUNASIOBIKE A FORMER GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL IN LIBERIA. FOLLOWING THE EXIT OF PRESIDENT CHARLES TAYLOR OF LIBERIA FROM POWER UNDER A WEST AFRICA BROKERED PEACE AGREEMENT LED BY NIGERIA'S PRESIDENT OLUSEGUN OBASANJO WE HAVE BEEN GRANTED ASYLUM BY THE NIGERIA GOVERNMENT.

IN MY POSITION AS THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE PRESIDENT CHARLES TAYLOR AND A CLOSE CONFIDANT, I LEFT FOR NIGERIA IN HIS ENTOURAGE.
MY COUNTRY HAS BEEN ENGULFED IN A PROTRACTED CIVIL WAR WITH REBELS CONTROLLING SOME PART OF THE COUNTRY. DURING THE WAR, PRESIDENT TAYLOR DISBURSED LARGE SUMS OF MONIES TO BUY THE
 
LOYALTY OF THE ENTIRE CABINET, AND I CAN SAY WITH ALL MODESTY THAT I WAS ONE OF THE CHIEF BENEFICIARIES OF THE DISBURSEMENT. HOWEVER, WHEN WE LEFT LIBERIA, I DEPOSITED THE WHOLE MONEY (US$15MILLION) THAT I MADE WHILE WE WHERE IN GOVERNMENT IN A SECURITY COMPANY IN COTONOU, THE REPUBLIC OF BENIN ON OUR WAY TO NIGERIA SINCE I COULD NOT SEEK ASYLUM CARING SUCH VOLUME OF CASH.

YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT IN MY PRESENT POSITION, I AM HANDICAPPED AND CANNOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL I HAVE THIS CASH SECURE SOMEWHERE SAFE AND WITH SOMEBODY RELIABLE WHO CAN MANAGE THE MONEY FOR ME. MY INTENTION IS TO LIVE THE REST OF MY LIFE IN A PLACE AS FAR AWAY AS ASIA AND THAT IS WHY I AM CONTACTING YOU TO ASSIST ME IN RECEIVING THIS MONEY SO THAT I CAN HAVE ACCESS TO CASH THROUGH YOU AND BE ABLE TO ARRANGE TO TRAVEL TO JOIN YOU WITH THE MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY.
I ALSO WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT A FRIEND OF MIND HERE HAS INTRODUCED ME TO A DIPLOMAT THAT IS WILLING TO MOVE THE CONSIGNMENT CONTAINING MY MONEY FROM THE SECURITY COMPANY TO YOUR DOOR STEP AT ANY TIME YOU SO DESIRE.

PRIOR TO THE MOVEMENT OF THIS CONSIGNMENT, I SHALL SEND YOU THE KEYS TO THE CONSIGNMENT CONTAINING THE MONEY AND UPON ARRIVAL AT YOUR DESTINATION, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO CHECK THE CONTENT OF THE CONSIGNMENT AND ASCERTAIN THAT IT CONTAINS THE COMPLETE AMOUNT (US$15MILLION) BEFORE EFFECTING ANY DELIVERY CHARGES TO THE DIPLOMAT.

ALL THAT IS REQUIRED OF YOU IS SOMETHING WITH WHICH TO IDENTIFY YOU WHEN DELIVERY WILL BE MADE (I.E. DRIVER'S LICENCE OR ANY OTHER FORM OF IDENTIFICATION) AND A COMPREHENSIVE ADDRESS OF WHERE THE DELIVERY WILL BE MADE. IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE OF ASSISTANCE IN THIS REGARDS, I SHALL GIVE YOU THE NAME OF THE DIPLOMAT AND HIS TEL. NO. SO THAT YOU CAN ESTABLISH CONTACT WITH HIM AND FAMILIARIZE WITH HIM BEFORE HE ARRIVES YOUR COUNTRY.

YOU SHOULD HOWEVER HAVE IT IN MIND THAT I AM BANKING ON YOUR UTMOST HONESTY AND TRUSTWORTHINESS FOR THIS WHOLE TRANSACTION TO SUCCEED. YOU CAN REACH ME ON MY E-MAIL ADDRESS:IF YOU NEED ANY FURTHER CLARIFICATION.

I AWAIT YOUR MOST URGENT RESPONSE.

BEST REGARDS.

MR.AKUNASIOBIKE
