Hello, I know my message will come as a great shock to you because this medium (internet) has been greatly abused, but it still remains the fastest medium of communications. Anyway, I am a captain with the United Nations troop in Iraq on war against terrorism. Based on the United States newly elected president (Barak Obama) and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Iraq starting from September till next year, I have been deployed to go and work in German military base soonest. Our mission is to help beef up terrorist targeted states, mostly the United States and the European Community on the war against terrorism. I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of 8.2 million USD Which I got from one of our raiding here and I decided to take the money for my sufferings here. I deposited this money inside a box with a Red Cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the Box. It is under my power to approve whosoever comes forth for this box. I want to invest the money in a good country as soon as I am deployed for a good business venture that will be under your care. Maybe you will advice me on that since I am not a business person.. I cannot move this money to the United States because I will be in Europe for about 3years, so I need someone I could trust. If you accept, I will transfer the Box through diplomatic arrangement to Europe where you will be the beneficiary because I am a uniformed personnel and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the owner. I am an American and an intelligence officer, so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier services. I just need your full acceptance with maximum corporation and all is done. If you are interested in this deal I will give you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully otherwisw i will find someone that is ready. I believe I can trust you. Rightnow we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which are secured so nobody can monitor our emails, then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through email, because our calls might be monitored, I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with. If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I can call you for further enquiries & informations when I am out of our military network. I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message, if no response after 3days I will then search for someone else. I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 5days the money should have been deposited in your account and I will come over for my money. I will give to you 3 Get back to me with your full information: YOUR FULL NAME....... YOUR FULL ADDRESS..................... A SCAN COPY OF YOUR DRIVERS LICENCE/ INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT YOUR DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBERS......... Regards, Capt Alex Sidney .
