    My dear friend,
    Compliments of the day and happy new year in arrears. My name is prince
    james Nkonoh(jr), the chief security officer to Charles Taylor the
    formar President of Liberia. As a matter of fact,he has been forced to step
    down from power due to presures from the united nation governments and
    other african leaders, so far he is presently in assylum in Nigeria
    while he is been sought to come and face war criminal charges in sirra
    leone where he has been indicted by the war crime tribunal on human right
    abuse/violations.
    Meanwhile I have been incharge of mining of gold and diamonds,we have
    made several sales before this time and part of the money accured from
    it has been in my custody before he finally stepped down, though efforts
    are still going on to dislodge other faction rebels with their forces
    who are presumed as still holding vital areas of important in the major
    cities. So far our faction has been disbanded since Taylor stepped down
    while relative peace is gradually returning to all the major cities
    where the united nation and the ecomog peace keeping forces are positioned
    to maintain and monitor the already ceasefire agreement reached by all
    the waring factions as well as to return all their firearms to the U.N
    monitoring team and collect ($500.00) compersation.
    While this excercise is going on,i wish to solicit and crave your
    indulgence for urgent assistance to transfer the above sum into your
    account, this money was part of sales of gold and diamond sold during his
    regime which was our source of purchasing ammunitions and equipments for
    the prosecution of the war, this notwithstanding millions of dollars he
    took away as he was leaving to begin his exile life in nigeria, i was
    only opportuned to safeguard this ($15.6m) u.s dollars in a
    security/finance company vault in europe as the news reached me that Taylor has
    stepped down and began his journey to nigeria with his over three hundred
    personal AIDS while i was left on my own.
    Well dear friend I need your assistance to secure this fund for proper
    use in your country,this can be done through your a/c no, based on my
    present statue in liberia, the government has begun to seize all
    mr.Taylor`s assets as well as those of his past associates including this
    (25m)hence I am making this move in order to safeguide this my little
    assets. I have decided to make you my partner who will help me safeguide
    this fund untill I arrive your country after the fund is released to you
    in person.I am hundred percent sure that you are going to help
    me,incuding my wife and our children. To keep yourself on the track of what I,m
    saying please visit these websites:
    (http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/08/11...imes/index.html)
    (http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/08/11...1300/index.html).
    The amount is (USD$15.6 million) in a Security firm in EUROPE. All that
    is needed is for me to instruct the company to release the funds to
    you. I will compersate you with 25% of the total funds released t
    o
    you as compensation for your assistance, five percent (5%) would be set
    aside to take care of all expenses we may incure during the transaction
    while i will rechannel the 70% into profitable investments in and
    within your country. Pls if you are interested kindly provide me with your:
    direct phone and fax numbers and contact address. I will provide you
    with other relevant information as will be rquested by the company for a
    smooth operation. And do let me know in your response the roles you
    will play in making this transaction successful. All the legal information
    concerning this money will be sent to you as soon as we agree in terms.
    As soon as we agree, I shall link you up with the security company
    where the fund is kept,they will handle all the legal documentations
    leading to smooth swift clearance. If this proposal satisfies you and you are
    willing, please contact me by this email immediately,or call me on my
    telephone number 44 *********** Thanks for your anticipated cooperation.

    Best Regards.

    Words to live by friend

    i once got an email from someone claiming to have the patent on a perpetual motion machine and if I wanted in on it all i would have to would be to invest $50.

    I had a friend send the "inventor" a virus in an email

    You should open a new account that has nothing but $5 in it. That way they wont be able to steal that much when YOU GIVE A STRANGER YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER!! Id give it a shot though if you really dont have that much to lose. As soon as the money goes into your account Id have it transfered to another account and fuck his ass. That would be the greatest.
