Here's the first letter I received:
I know this proposal letter might be a pleasant surprise to you as we don't know ourselves before. I am a Liberian born 30 years ago, now seeking asylum in Dakar Senegal under (UNHCR). I contacted you as a cause of my serious search for a reliable and trust worthy person that can handle such a confidential transaction of this nature.
My Late father former Deputy Minister of Finance under the executive civilian president of Liberia, but was assassinated by the rebels during the civil war and properties destroyed, but I narrowly escaped with some very important documents of (US$7.5M) Seven Point Five Million U.S Dollars deposited by my late father in a high financial company here in Dakar Senegal under.
However, I seek with the problem of securing a trust worthy foreign personality like you to help me transfer this money pending when I will come over to your country for us to meet for investment of the money. Furthermore, I only want this to be done this way because your country is politically stable for any profitable investment, and I also want to add here that if accepted by you, you will serve as the original beneficiary of the money.
I feel confidence therefore, to introduce this offer to you. For your participation and all your assistance regarding this transfer, I have decided to give you 15% of the total money. Therefore, you are requested to furnish me back immediately you receive this request to transfer this money from Dakar Senegal to your country resident account or any account of your interest.
On commencement of this transaction I want to let you understand that the future of myself depends solely on this money. So please keep this business to yourself only to avoid raise eye brow of any third party.
I am eagerly expecting your urgent response.
I received the above letter three times bearing three different names. I thought that ends there; but, after a few days I received three more.

The amount involved is (USD 9,500,000.00) Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand USD, no other person knows about this account.
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in US Dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr.Ravindra F.
