http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2963086.stm http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/currentawareness/taylor.php http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/forumy/2006/03/handing-over-charles-taylor-its-time.phpThis business proposal to you is strictly confidential, with due respect. Sorry for any inconvenience or stress this my mail may bring to you, may be through reading it or otherwise, since we have not known ourselves or met previously. Despite that, I am constrained to write you this letter because of the urgency it deserves.
By way of self introduction, I am Mr. Williams Charles Taylor, the second Son of Mr. Charles Taylor, former Liberian president. Who was in Exiled in Nigeria? Before Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo repatriate him to face war crimes, He did not commit. My family is under restriction of movement and that not withstanding, we are being molested, policed and our Bank Account both here and broad are being frozen by the Nigerian Civilian Government and Liberian President Johnson-Sirleaf.
Following the sudden problems the Taylor family is facing, which include the first son of former Liberian President Charles Taylor was back in federal court on a passport fraud charge but delayed entering a plea in the case.
I have been thrown into a state of utmost confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the present civilian administration both Nigeria and Liberian Government; I have been subjected to physical and psychological torture by the security agents in this country. We have lost confidence with anybody within these two countries.
Following the recent discovery of my Father's Bank Account by the Nigerian and Liberian Government with Swiss Bank in which the huge sum of $200Million and DM50Milllion was logged, I was able to move out the sum of US$13.2 Million, which was secretly deposited in a Finance House.
I therefore personally decided to contact you in confidence and also appeal to you seriously and religiously for your urgent assistance to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe since I cannot leave the country due to restriction of movement imposed on the members of my family by these two Governments.
Upon your acceptance, I will let you know the percentage and also work out other modalities that will be beneficial to both of us. Please reply urgently and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity. I have also planned on how I will invest this fund in your country on any lucrative venture as soon as you agree and we conclude.
Best regards and May God bless you. Mr. Williams Charles Taylor. _________________________________________________________________Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger! Download today it's FREE! http://messenger.msn.click-url.com/go/onm00200471ave/direct/01/
