Dear Friend Compliments, this email might come to you as a surprise, but I implore you to take your time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go a long way to determine my future and continued existence. Please, permit me to introduce myself to you.I am CAPTAIN GREG, of the 4th Battalion, 64th Armored Command, which is saddled the responsibilities to Patrol the Helmand province of Afghanistan. I am desperately in need of a proxy assistance and I have summoned the courage to contact you. I am presently in Afghanistan and I found your contact in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $25m (Twenty five Million United States Dollars), which shall be entrusted into your custody, if you can assure me, that it be safe under your watch till I complete my service here. This is not stolen money and there are no dangers/risk attached. SOURCE OF MONEY: Large Wads of the US DOLLARS was discovered and concealed in barrels at a formal Taliban held location in Helmand province where we conducted a Fatigue Exercise/Patrol and it was agreed by our party, that the money should be shared amongst us. This might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hellhole.The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became my problem and nightmare. In my desperation to help, I approached a Canadian, who works with UN. (His office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location. "Though his is ignorant of the content of the barrel. I literally told him that the barrel contains the personal effects of a U.S. Comrade of mine who died in an air raid, who before giving up the ghost have entrusted it me to hand the package over to his close relative. The above favor has already been done by the Canadian Diplomat. Having confirmed that the Barrel has arrived the safe location as I directed him, I have now found a secured way of getting the package out of Afghanistan. Could help me to pick it up please. I do not know how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive 2 suicide bomb attacks by pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach out for help. If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to contact me immediately how we would work out the necessary modalities on how to ship this package into your safe hands. I also pray that you should be discreet and treat this communication with high sense of confidentiality, to enable us build a mutual business and benefiting relationship. Respectfully, Captain Greg, United States Soldier:Afghanistan
