Hello pal,

 I am in need of your assistance, Am Sgt James Cottingham Jr. Am with the
Engineering unit here in Ba'qubah Iraq for the United States; we have
about 9.2 million US dollars that we want to move out of the country.

My partners and I need a good partner, someone we can trust to actualize
this venture. The money is from oil proceeds and legal. But we are moving
it by diplomatic means to your house directly or a safe and secured
location of your choice using diplomatic courier services.

But can we trust you? Once the funds get to you, you take your 30% out and
keep our own 70%. Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where
the funds can be sent to. Our own part is sending it to you.

If you are interested I will furnish you with more details.

Urgently awaiting your response.

Your buddy.
Sgt James Cottingham
