Soliciting for Partnerhip/Assistance.
From: Thomas S. Taylor.
Dear friend,
Before I proceed, courtesy demands that I introduce myself. My name is
Thomas S. Taylor, the son of Charles Taylor, the former President of
Liberia. My father was a leader of the revolutionary forces that freed the
tiny but prosperous country of Liberia from the dictatorial regime and
known cabals in the '90s. He later became the ad hoc and elected president
of the country through a free and fair election.
At the beginning of the new century, 2002 to be precise, there was a
rebellion mainly by loyalist of the former cabal which my father resisted.
This was about to lead to another civil strife before the regional
governments in west Africa and African Union lead by the Federal Republic
of Nigeria under the leadership of President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to
intervened. Among the conditions of for peace was for my father to
relinquish leadership and go on exile for another free and fair election
to be conducted and chat a new peace deal for the country. My father left
for Nigeria with members of my family, trusted aids and other movable
assets of the family which was made from prospective and legally acquired
diamond mining before and during the war in accordance with the regional
and United Nation (UN) plans. I cannot hide the fact that my father was
more than a comfortable man before the civil unrest. His beliefs, nobility
and patriotic tendencies made him to be involved in rescuing the enslaved
Liberians from the dictators.
While in Nigeria, my father made deposits of most of the cash assets in
the name of my siblings and myself in several European countries through
an appointed notary officer who is also the family attorney. Presently,
the total money deposited in my name in a Security & finance company is
$7.5 million (usd). The said of $7.5 million was deposited in my name at
the Security company in "diplomatic baggages/consignments" and declared as
"African Arts & Craft" for the sake of maintaining the confidentiuality of
content of the diplomatic consignment. Unfortunately, my father was
recently deported to Sierra Leon enroute to The Hague (International Court
of Justice), The Netherlands to face an international tribunal for war
crimes and this was not part of the peace deal before leaving Liberia. The
family felt that it is a betrayal on the part of President Olusegun
Obasanjo, the Nigeria government and the international communities that
were party to this peace negotiation. Before he was taken to Sierra Leone,
he formally introduced me as the eldest son and custodian of his estates
to the attorney and handed over the cash deposits certificates to me to
manage for the family's benefits.
I am therefore looking for a trustworthy individual/firm outside Africa
whom I can transfer the deposited fund to in an offshore account as my
trustee for the purpose of safety and future business investments as I can
no longer trust the Nigerian government and officials here. If I receive a
favorable reply, I shall instruct the family attorney to effect the
transfer of beneficiary of his properties and rights in your favor while
we work out modalities of your commission/remunerations. Be well informed
that this cash deposit was moved to a security company in Europe under
"diplomatic immunity" by diplomatic courier service and is not known to
the government nor anybody. It is a secret between selected members of my
family, the security company and my family lawyer.
If need be, I can provide you with my lawyer's (Barr. Tunde Kamson)
contact details for confirmation and follow up.
Please, do let me know in your reply if yu are willing to assist with your
full names, address and contact phone numbers as this will help for easy
and confidential communication.
Thomas S. Taylor.
