Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence.
Please allow me to introduce myself.I am CAPTAIN GREG, in 4th Battalion, 64th Armored Regiment unit here that Patrols the hellmand provinceA fghanistan, I am desperately in need of your assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you.
I am presently in Afghanistan and I found your contact particulars in an address journal,I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $25m (Twenty five Million United States Dollars) to you,as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here,This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.
SOURCE OF MONEY:
Some money in US DOLLARS was discovered and concealed in barrels at a location in hellman province when we conducted a foot patrol and it was agreed by all party present that the money should be shared among ourselfs,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 a problem for me, so with the help of a Canadian contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot,
He does not know the real contents of the package as he believes that it belongs to an American who died in an air raid who before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative.
I have now found a secured way of getting the package out of Afghanistan for you to pick up,I do not know how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive 2 suicide bomb attacks by Pure intervention,This and other reasons put into consideration have prompt me to reach out for help.
If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to contact me immediately and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually benefiting relationship.
