Dear Good Friend,

We are the troop that toppled the late Saddam Hussein and in one of our operation in Baghdad, we stumbled on Huge Cash (Dollars and Euro) stacked in TRUNK BOXES worth over US$200 Million belonging to the late Dictator.
But before those funds were shown to World Press, that is (BBC, VOA, FOX News, Sky News, Aljazeera, INA-Iraqi News Agency etc) my 2 Senior Commanders have already kept aside 2 of those TRUNK BOXES worth about US$26 Million Dollars in a SECURITY & DIPLOMATIC ORGANIZATION as MILITARY HARDWARES. Please Check the website below for more details.
Now, They plan to ship this money as military cargo to a safe hand for INVESTMENT under GOOD DIPLOMATIC ARRANGEMENT. I am contacting you in strict confidence as all arrangements for its successful delivery has been put in place. All I need from you is to receive the cargo from this delegated diplomat in your Doorstep over there in your Country and Help us Invest the Money until the War in Iraq is Over and we are free to travel anywhere.
You will take 20% of this Money which is US$5.2 Million Dollars as your COMMISSION for the Help you are rendering, You will also take out 5% which is US$1.3 Million Dollars to cover any kind of Expenses you may incure while doing this job for us, Expenses like Hotel Bills, Telephone Bills, Air Tickets, Car Hire Services, Any Kind of Charges/Fees paid, while you will Invest the Rest 75% which is about US$19.5 Million Dollars on Stock, Real Estate Property and May be Hotel.
