Dear Friend,
I am TONY KUNO A former government official of Liberia. Following the exit of president Charles 
Taylor of Liberia from power under a West African brokered peace agreement, led by Nigerian 
President Olusegun Obasanjo he was granted asylum by the Nigerian Government. In my position as the 
Financial Secretary to the President and close confidant, I left for Nigeria in his Entourage.
My country has been engulfed in Protracted Civil war with rebels controlling some parts 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 this 
This is aside from monies I used my official position to acquire while in office. Since we 
relocated to Calabar, Southern Nigeria all has been well, but with the recent indictment of former 
President Taylor by the war crime tribunal sitting in Sierra Leone and confirmed reports of a 
dedicated fund by the American Government to capture him in order to face war crime charges have 
now decided to leave the country. Presently I have funds totaling United State $15,000,000. 
(Fifteen Million US Dollars) Which I intend to move oversea for investment and spend the rest of my 
life there with my family.
This transaction is risk-free as all local arrangement has been made.
If you are prepared to assist to work with me I require the following:
Your Full Name and Address, Your Private Telephone, Fax Number and private Email Address. As 
Compensation for your assistance you will retain 15% of the Total sum, While 5% will be mapped out 
for local and International expenses.
Though we are not known to each other, I strongly believe that through this transaction we would be 
able to forge a mutually  beneficial relationship between us, now and in the future.
Finally, the success of this transaction will depend to a great extent on mutual trust, secrecy and 
Confidentiality from you.
I await your response by E-mail;

Best Regards,
Tony Kuno
