Dear Friend, 
I am an American soldier serving here in Iraq in a desperate need of your urgent assistance. I have 
summed up courage to contact you towards assisting me on my quest. I found your particulars (email) 
in an International email list directory from the Internet here in Iraq and decided to contact you 
to assist me move the sum of ($8 Million U.S. Dollars) Eight Million United States Dollars to you 
in your country of origin or any location of your choice. But I need to be assured that my share 
will be kept safe in your care until I complete my service here in Iraq.
Some money in various currencies were discovered in barrels at a farm house near one of Late Saddam 
Hussein's old palace here in Tikrit-Iraq, during a rescue operation. It was agreed by Staff Sergent 
Joey Jones and myself and some other officers that part of this money be shared among us before 
informing anybody about it and turning it over to the troop, since we were the first to discover 
this money. Though this was quite an illegal thing to do as an army officer, but I tell you what? 
No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole of which my 
brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last time and many other American soldiers.
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 red cross officer working here in Iraq whose office enjoy some immunity, 
I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot as a personal 
effect of my late brother in-law. The red cross officer does not know the real content of the 
package and believes that it belongs to my brother in-law who died by a road side bomb blast here 
in Iraq and before giving up, entrusted me to hand over the package to his family in the United 
I have now found a very safe and secured way of getting the package out of Iraq through Jordan so 
you can pick it up anywhere and I will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to 
assist me. I believe that my money will be well secured in your hand because I feel you have the 
fear of God at heart and that you can be trusted. I intend to part away with 30% of this money as 
your share for assisting me conclude this project if we eventually come to a reasonable agreement. 
You should also assure me that this issue will not be discussed with any other person and will be 
kept as top secret. Should you have any reason to reject this offer, please and please delete this 
message for any leakage of this information will be too bad for us soldiers here in Iraq.
I am not certain how long it will take before I am discharged from here in Iraq. I have been shot 
twice, wounded and survived one suicide bomb attack by the grace of God. This and other reasons 
earlier mentioned has prompted me to reach out for help by contacting you. I honestly want this 
issue resolved immediately. Please contact me as soon as possible via
Best Regards,
Quintine Mel Sanchez (Sarge).
