I want to invest the money in your country as soon as I am deployed into your country for a good bussines, anyway you will advice me on that since I am not a bussiness person. I want to move this money to your destination because I will be in europe for about 3 years,so I need someone I could trust.If you accept,I will transfer the money to where you will be the beneficiary because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary.

I believe I can trust you. where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails,then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through email,because our calls might be monitored,I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with.
