My Dear Friend, Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a huge 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 Sgt. Christopher Evans, a US Marine Sgt. serving in the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment that Patrols the Anbar province, Iraq. I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you. I am presently in Iraq and I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of 25million USD (Twenty Five Million USD) to the States or any safe country, 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 various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of Saddam Hussein's old Presidential Palaces during a rescue operation and it was agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us.

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 British contact working with the UN here in Iraq (his office enjoys some immunity) they were able to get the funds deposited with a secured bank in the western part of Africa (TOGO) for safe keeping in my name and I was given the certificate of deposit which I have here with me here in Iraq.. I do not know for how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive 2 suicide bomb attacks by Pure Divine intervention so I have therefore decided to seek your help so that the holding bank in Togo will have the funds transferred into your account as my next of kin for investment purposes. 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 and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually benefiting relationship. I will give you 45% of the funds for your assistance while the other balance shall be invested in my name and controlled by you until I am able to get out of this hell. Reply me through my private email (email@example.com) so I can furnish you with more details. Respectfully, Sgt. Christopher Evans, United States Marine Corps. IRAQ.
