Dear Sir/Madam My name is Sgt. Rosalind Gibson, a US Soldier who is presently serving with the US & NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan, for advisory, training, assistance, and resolute support mission to Afghanistan Forces and to extinct all terrorist groups here. I appreciate the fact the we are strangers for now but understanding that all friendship start as strangers to friendship and family in a moment of trust and sincerity, please note that trust is very essential in all dealings. What am about to share with you is a top secret which you are not expected to tell anyone, for my own sake. My troop found $100m and 90m euros in 31 containers. The money had been hidden behind the false wall of a house searched by my troop. It is thought the stash cash could have been left by fleeing Afghan drug cartel, though my commanding officer did not declare the funds to the Afghanistan government which we agreed to keep and share among ourselves, I was able to secure $16 million U.S Dollars which I have with me. I am sorry to encroach into your privacy in this manner. I asked the relative of a colleague who works with the department of commerce for names of four persons I can do business with when I return home, your name was one of the names he gave to me, and you are the first and only person am contacting now. I am looking for a trust worthy person I can entrust this funds to, till I get back home from my station in Kabul, Afghanistan. My husband would have taken responsibility of this package but I lost him to Cancer about three years now. I want to have a very peaceful retirement, maybe get married again. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business. I will reward you with 30% for your assistance and confidentiality between us. I have package the boxes believing i would leave Kabul by December last year as promised by Mr. President (Barack Obama) before I was chosen by my commanding officer to remain till God knows when to take part in the NATO training & Resolute support mission of Afghan soldiers and intelligence units. I need you to collect these boxes and keep it in your custody pending my return to the United States. If you are willing to help me secure my funds till I get back home, I will make the necessary arrangements to get the boxes delivered to you through a UN diplomat. The boxes would be delivered to you by the diplomat. I have put a lot on the line here, so I would need your absolute trust and understanding. I want you to understand that, this transaction is a gilt-edge transaction. So you don’t have anything to be scared of. I have made all the necessary arrangement on how the boxes will be delivered to you at your provided delivery address, since I am not coming with diplomatic flight again. All I want from you is the maximum corporation and prayers for me out here. I will be redirecting the diplomat to deliver the boxes to you as he will be leaving Kabul, Afghanistan very soon and since he has diplomatic Immunity, the consignment will not be subject to rigorous screening. I will provide you with the name of the diplomat in charge of delivery and I will also give to him your contact information that you shall be providing me to enable him contact you immediately on his arrival. I will like you to confirm to me your full contact details as: Your full names: Contact address: Contact telephone: As well as your present occupation: The details above will enable me know how to position myself to make sure this deal is brought to a logical conclusion without any hitch. CONFIDENTIALITY. Note that the diplomat is not aware of the content as money; please do not tell the diplomat that the boxes contains money, the boxes are packaged in a consignment as mere goods. Just let him know they are personal effects that belong to a dead soldier friend of yours, directed to you. I shall send you the pictures of myself and the consignments as soon you get back to me to assist me. My confidence and trust in you should not be betrayed. I have put a lot on the line here and God shall see us through. Please note that am using this email domain now for security reasons.
