I hope this letter will not upset you, as we have no previous
discussion on this matter. I am Walai Melek, son of Mr. Donald Melek ; a
Liberian former Director of Liberian Mining corporation (LMC) who was
assassinated by the Rebels fighting former President Charles Taylor's
Government in Dec.2002.
My mother died of heart attack, one year before my Father's death. I
and my junior brother John become orphans without anybody to care for us;
even the Government, which our father served and lost his life, didn't
do much to assist us. My father unsure of Liberian Political future had
secretly moved the sum of Eighteen Million USA Dollars [$18.Million]
Well packed in metal box out of Liberia and deposited it at a Security
Company in our neighbouring Country of Cottonue Republic of Benin,
Labbeled it as Family treasure with PIN code which is the only key to
collect the consignment from the security company. That was at the period
when Liberia was facing United Nation Embargoes and he had intended to use
the money for future elections.
We left Monrovia to live in nigeria as a political refugees in August
2003 when the President; Mr. Charles Taylor was forced into exile by the
UN/ECOWAS authorities to pave way for tribal reconciliation in our war
torn country which will lead into bringing the rebel soldiers that
killed our father into Monrovia. We were advised to leave Liberia to avert
victimization in the hands of our father's political enemies.
It was unfortunate that the Government that our father served and lost
his life did not make any arrangement to cover us in their plan to move
into comfortable arranged exile. The president Mr. Charles Taylor took
with him other cabinet families who served with him when he was going
on exile but we were abandoned behind in Monrovia till we find our way
to nigeria. So because the Rebels are coming into Monrovia take over the
Government we have no alternative than to escape as they may kill us as
they killed our father.
I hereby request you to assist us by acting as our late father's
foreign business partner so that you will help us to collect the
consignment/ money from the security company in Cottonue to your country or any
other safe location for investment purposes ,although the security
company did not know the real content of the consignment as my father did
not disclose it to them,according to him before he was assainated,thank
God he give me the key and the PIN code to collect the Consignment. You
will also help us to migrate to your country to continue our lives as
orphans and with your guidance; the money will be invested in profitable
ventures while we continue our education.
Kindly inform me what percentage of the total sum you wish to receive
as compensation for rendering your help.
You should please treat this matter as confidential, as I would not
like to expose the existence of the money at the Security company for
security reasons ranging from our refugee status here and our father's
status as civil servant in the past Liberian Government.
Kindly study my request carefully and send your response fast through :
Thanks in advance for saving our lives.
