> SOLICITING YOUR HONEST PARTNERSHIP IN BUSINESS.
Apologies for communicating via this medium a business of this magnitude, as well as the incidental approach of this proposal.This is due to the state of disarray presently in the family. My name is ABEL TAYLOR (MR),eldest son of the renowned and exiled PRESIDENT CHARLES TAYLOR of Liberia in western africa. I contact you in respect of my consignment, to take up the position of my ex-trustee/consignee in the
collection of my deposits. This is as result of the cruel and insincere character portrayed by him (trustee) in the commisioning of earlier consignments.
My father before his exile deposited a big steel box containing USD45,000,000(FORTY-FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) moved via diplomatic means and deposited as a familytreasure in the vault of an european security company for safe-keeping.
[Scam-o-note: for pictures of Big Steel Boxes, see SHOW ME THE MONEY]
I seek your honest and confidential co-operation to the benefit of all parties,as i guarantee you 100% risk free on your path provided you are ready to maintain utmost secrecy. Although this whole arrangement seems apparrent I still withold vital information for the security of these consignments.
On acknowledgement and full conviction of your willingness to comply all the required documents and priviledges will be issue to you thereby appointing you as the BEARER to this consignment, as I have decided to stop dealing in this business with my family name ''TAYLOR'hence your utmost importance in this transaction.
On this effect,I have the instructions of my father to give 20% of the sum to you for a job well done and an additional 5% as compensation on taxation and other miscellaneous expenses.
All I require of you is your honest co-operation to ensure investment of my percentagein your country which will be discussed later on.
On receipt of your response, we shall discuss the proceedures as regards this arrangement.
Contact me via this secured and confidential

Thanks for our response,
I understand your fear in this business.It seems quite impossible at times when people express their predicment,but you have all this information in the news spread by the media.Presently,my entire family is seeking asylum in Nigeria and this is the reason why I have contacted you because I can no longer experience safe travelling to meet the security companyin europe to collect the fund and this is why I have contacted you so that on due agreement with you,I will give you the necessary information that you will go along with to the security company inorder for the funds to be released to you.
In the attachment is my picture and also that of my father who is the rightful owner of the deposit.
Please be aware that you are free to request for the fulll evidencies but I will like to inform you that we will like to have some of your personal information to feel safe in this business dealing.
On receipt of your response,I will be sending you attachments of the documents involved in the proceedures of this project.
Bear in mind that the amount in question is USD45M,thus the confidentiality involved in this project cannot be over emphasised.
Abel for the Family.

Compliments of the day to you.
I am surprised that you have not written to me after this long while of my very ill health.I have contacted my father inorder to get his approval to release those crucial documents you asked me to send but we are still considering some factors so that we will not run into the wrong hand because this is our family's whole life treasure.
I was not able to call you or contact you due to the fact that that I was suffering from diabetes and was admitted to the hospital for sometime but I thank God I am in well now and my wife is pregnant for a baby. If you will like to know the security company holding the box,this is their website.
Please get back to me as soon as possible.
