Sincere greetings to you and your family. I am writing you this letter
with a sincere hope for you to be able to assist me and my family. I am
Emmanuel Billy, the son of the late Dr Jami Billy , a strong
politician who was murdered in the present civil war in Liberia. My
father was among
the founding fathers of the revolutionary front. The whole six of the
founding fathers were
assassinated one after the other by Mr. Charles Taylor for the
allegation that they were trying to set up the present rebel group.
I have this strong belief that you are a trustworthy person to deal
with hence I have decided to write this letter to you for your
assistance. My late father was among the few Liberians murdered in cold
blood by the agent of the ruling government of President Charles Taylor
for his alleged support and Sympathy for Liberian opposition of Mr.
Charles Taylor's Government.
Before the death of my father, he took me to Ghana to deposit the
sum of Fifteen Million, two hundred thousand US Dollars (US$15,200,000.00)
with a security and finance company, as if he knew the looming danger in Liberia.
The money was deposited in a consignment as gem or precious stone to
avoid much demurrage from the Security firm. My dad initially earmarked
this money for the Purchase of new machinery and chemicals for his
farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland.
This problem arose when President Charles Taylor was advised to leave
his office because the political situation at that time was almost at
boiling point. Because of the advice that they gave him, the result
was a rampant killing and mob actions against us all.
I and my Mother are currently staying in the Netherlands as
refugees/asylum seekers have decided to transfer this money to a
foreign country where we can invest it.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money anywhere
in Africa for fear of encountering the same experience in future since most countries
have the same political history. Also we can be traced in Africa.
I am happy to inform you that we have finally been able to get the money
into Netherlands through a Diplomatic & Security company that it was
deposited . I am seeking for a foreign partner who can come up and be
used as the new next beneficiary to this our money which is kept with
It is registered this way to avoid much demurrage from the security
company's vaults. Also, it is not allowed to carry money in this form
hence we had to declare it as family valvuables . Our helper told us
that the only way we can get our funds back is to get a reliable
foreign person who we can use.
We have arranged all the modalities and documents to do all these. I
must let you know that everything is 100% risk Free, timely and the
nature of your business does not necessarily matter. We are begging you
to please come quickly to our aid and help us receive this
consignment from the security company. We shall give you all the
necessary documents to place you as the new beneficiary to the consignment.
For your assistance and support, I and my mother have agreed to give
you 20% of the total consignment, while 60% will be for us which we shall also invest in
your Country with your advice and the remaining 20% will be mapped out
for any incidental expenses which we may incur during the transaction.
We have all the original documents that you will produce at the security
company so that the consignment will be released to you on our behalf
without the security company asking you questions.
Please be interested to render us the needed assistance because we are
in dying need of your help, support and endeavour to reply me through
my private email address as above.
Remember that this is highly confidential discussion and also the
Success of this whole transaction depends on how secret it is kept.
I shall bring you into a more detailed picture of this transaction when
you reply me.
