Dear I wish to present this proposal for the purpose of investment in your country. My name is Mr.David Lawarson Jr,I am 21years old. I am the Son of Late David B Lawarson the former minister of rural development under the leadership of president Charles Taylor of Liberia. My father was arrested on 1st of Nov 2001 by Charles Taylor on allegation of using his position in the Govenment to aid smuggling of diamond from the Lofia county diamond field,it was just a political vendetta.My father later died in the prison,it was diagnonised that he was poisoned, but Government report says heart failure. He sent a note to me before his death, regarding a deposit of the sum of Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars he deposited for me. He instructed me to move immediately with the documents to a neighbouring country to seek asylum. I moved to the Republic of Mali where I spent some time before finally moving to Dakar with the help of United Nation Agency. Meanwhile i have located the bank,and have also discussed the possible transfer of the fund.my father left a clause that i must reach the age of 24 before i could manage the fund myself that i have to introduce a trusted foreign partner who would be my trustee to help me invest this fund hence the need for your assistance. I request that you be my trustee and assist me in effecting the transfer of the fund to your account or an account you will nominate for investment. You will also be resposible for the investment and management of the fund for me and also you will help me get a good school where i will further my education.we will agree on a percentage you will take for your assistance. Please let me know immediately if you can assist me so that I will give you more information about the deposit. I thank you in anticipation to your quick response. yours sincerely Mr.David Lawarson Jr.
