I wish to present this proposal for the purpose of investment in your country. My name is Sarah Doran. I am the only daughter of Late Hon Dr. Johnson Doran, the former Minister of Transport and Communication under the leadership of President Charles Taylor of Liberia .

My father was arrested by Charles Taylor on allegation of using his position in the Government to aid smuggling of diamond from the Lofia country diamond field, it was just a political vendetta. My father later died in the prison, it was diagnosis that he was poisoned, but Government report says heart failure. He sent a note to me before his death, regarding a deposit of the sum of Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$6.500.000.00) he deposited for me as family valuables.

He instructed me to move immediately with the documents to a neighbouring country to seek asylum. I moved to the Republic of Mali where I spent some time before finally moving to Abidjan- Cote d'Ivoire with the help of United Nation Agency. Meanwhile I have located the security company, and have also discussed the possible release of the Box.

My father left a clause that I must reach the age of 24 before I could release the fund myself or that I have to introduce a trusted foreign partner who would be my trustee to help me invest this fund hence the need for your assistance. I request that you be my trustee and assist me in effecting the release of the fund to your country or anywhere you will nominate for investment.

You will also be responsible for the investment and management of the fund for me and also you will help me get a good school where I will further my education. we will agree on a percentage you will take for your assistance.

Please let me know immediately if you can assist me so that I will give you more information about the deposit. I thank you in anticipation to your quick response.


Best Regards,
Sarah Doran.
