Dear Friend, I hope my e-mail meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My name is John T. England Jr. of the Contract Unit of US Military here in Baghdad in Iraq; we have about $10.2 Million US dollars that we want to move out of the country. My partners and I need a good partner out there, someone we can trust to receive the funds on our behalf. It is oil money and legal. We have made arrangements with a Diplomatic Courier Service that will move the funds out of Iraq as a Family Treasures, also we have made arrangement to transfer the said fund through Bank of Baghdad depending on what you want, The most important thing is; "Can We Trust you"? Once the funds get to you, simply take out 20% as your share and keep the remaining 80% for us. Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to, ours is sending it to you safely. Also you can view the Link http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm If you are interested I will furnish you with more details upon receipt of your response and contact details. But I can assure you the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all times. I look forward to your reply and co-operation. Regards, John T. England Jr. Private and secured e-mail: email@example.com
