I am Captain Hale, an Intelligence officer in Iraq on a Joint Monitoring and Peace-keeping mission in Baghdad-Iraq.I have a proposition for you. On the 15th day of November 2009, we were alerted on the sudden presence of some Shi'a militias camping in a suburb not too far from kirkuk here in Iraq . In the ensuing gun duel with them,twenty-six (26) were killed ,(3) were seriously injured and the remaining militias ran away. Unfortunately, I lost some of my men. In the process of interrogating the injured insurgents, they confessed being rebels for Muqtada al-Sadr and took us to a cave in Karbala where we recovered two Boxes, one containing Ammunition and the other was filled with money in United States Currency. We found out that the funds discovered in the cave totals US$38.6M and have been able to safely keep it while looking for someone that will help us receive the fund until we are redeployed from Iraq. As serving Military officer's,we can not be parading such amount hence the need to get someone that will receive the fund on our behalf until our assignment in Iraq is concluded which will be in the next 18 months. As an intelligence officer, I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money to you legally and I just need your acceptance and everything will be done. Where we are now in Iraq, we can only communicate through our military communication facilities and all calls are monitored and so the best way of communicating will be via email. For your efforts in this transaction, you shall receive 35% of the entire amount and if you are interested in assisting us, the following information will enable us expedite action YOUR FULL NAME.............. YOUR FULL ADDRESS.................... YOUR OCCUPATION........................ YOUR DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER......... It is paramount that you keep the details of the transaction to yourself. Utmost confidentiality and secrecy are what is needed from you in order to successfully complete the transfer of the fund from Iraq to you in your country of residence. However,If you are not interested,do not reply and please delete this message but if you are interested simply fill in the details above and will put you to our contact. Kind Regards, Capt Hale.
