Good day Dear Friend,

My name is SSgt. Nicholas Williams, an American soldier with 3rd infantry Division serving in Iraq. With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you, I found your contact particulars in an address journal and Iâm seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of ($ 12 million U.S. dollars) Twelve million United States dollars to you, as far as I can be rest assured that my own share will be safe in your custody until I complete my service here.

Itâs not a stolen money, some huge amount of money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Saddamâs old palaces in Tacit-Iraq during a rescue operation and it was agreed by Sgt Kenneth buff and I that some part of this money be shared among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first, we knew that itâs an illegal act 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 week. You will find the story of this money on the web address below:

the above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal it became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working here and his Office enjoy some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe location. He does not know the real contents of the package hence I told him that it was a family valuables belonging to an American medical doctor who died in a raid here in Iraq.
Note: every necessary arrangement has been perfected well for the smooth delivery of the package to you with the help of a Diplomat who is working here with the US Marine. Please itâs not a must that you should assist me in this transaction but if you are willing and sincere to help me secure the fund, be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free and it does not contradict the laws of any country.


One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us soldierâs here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here but am planning to quit the army immediately after you have secured the fund so that I can enjoy my life like every other normal people.

Please kindly contact me on by email for Security purpose and for lack of indigenous network coverage. Also I want you to indicate clearly how many percent you will take from the entire fund as your commission for work well done.
