Dear Sir/Madam,

With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I am from (will 
disclose this later),presently working in Iraq with an international organization that I will also 
disclose later, I found your contact particulars in an address journal.I am seeking your assistance 
to evacuate the sum of (US$18.523 Million Dollars) Eighteen Million, five Hundred And Twenty Three 
Thousand US Dollars to your country or any other safe country of your choice, as far as I can be 
assured that my share will be safe in your care untill I complete my service here,this is no stolen 
money,and there are no dangers involved.
 Some money in various currencies was discovered concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and 
ammunitions at a location near one of Saddam,s old palaces during a rescue operation, and it was 
agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us, this was quite 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 hell hole. 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 German contact working here, and his office enjoys 
some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe cation entirely out of trouble spot.
 He does not know the real contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to an 
Asian/American who died in an air raid, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package 
to his business associate. I have now found a secured way of getting the package out to a safer 
country for you to pick up, and will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to 
assist me.One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with a third 
party, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please destroy this mail as any leakage of 
this information will be too bad for us.I do not know for how long we will remain here, and I have 
survived 6 suicide bomb attacks by the special grace of God, this and other reasons I will mention 
later has prompted me to reach out for help, I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately.

 Please contact me as soon as possible  and kindly fill up this requirements like:Kindly respond .
