Ken Hastrup—Financial adviser for Liberia

Here we go. First of all, he's an ex-Liberia official. Even though he has a rather English name. Say it can happen. Then he followed a former president to another country. Hmmm... and out of that, he gets paid how much? $15M... Right. That was quite a job.

Hello Friend,
I am Ken Hastrup,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 Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, 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 Encourage.
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 disbursement.
 This is aside from monies I used my official position to acquire while in
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 $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:
Postal Address:
Your Private Telephone:
Fax Number :
private Email Address:
As Compensation for your assistance you will retain 15% of the Total sum 5% will
be mapped out for local and International expenses.Though i am not writing you
because i am offering you 15% because i don't know what you what neither do i
know the kind of person you are but alli need from you is to help me and my
family by securing the funds with you.
I believe we are not known to each other but 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 of mutual trust, secrecy and Confidentiality from you.
I await your swift response to my e-mail :
Best Regards,
Ken Hastrup
