SOURCE OF MONEY:
SOME MONEY IN VARIOUS CURRENCIES WAS DISCOVERED IN BARRELS AT A FARM HOUSE NEAR ONE OF SADDAM'S OLD PALACE IN
 
TIKRIT-IRAQ DURING A RESCUE OPERATION, AND IT WAS AGREED BY MY CREW MEMBERS THAT SOME PART OF THIS MONEY BE SHARED
 
AMONG US BEFORE INFORMING OTHER PEOPLE SINCE WE ARE THE FIRST THAT SAW IT. THIS WAS QUITE AN ILLEGAL THING TO DO,
 
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 TIME.
THE ABOVE FIGURE WAS GIVEN TO ME AS MY SHARE, TO CONCEAL THIS KIND OF MONEY BECAME A PROBLEM TO ME BUT FINALY I WAS
 
ABLE TO SEEK FOR THE HELP OF A BRITHISH CONTACT THAT IS WORKING HERE, AND HIS OFFICE ENJOY SOME IMMUNITY, I WAS ABLE
 
TO GET THE PACKAGE OUT TO A SAFE LOCATION ENTIRELY OUT OF THE TROUBLE SPOT. HE DOES NOT KNOW THE REAL CONTENTS OF
 
THE PACKAGE, AND BELIEVES THAT IT BELONGS TO A BRITHISH/AMERICAN MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO DIED IN AN RAID HERE IN IRAQ,

SECURED IN YOUR HAND.
I WANT YOU TO TELL ME HOW MUCH YOU WILL TAKE FROM THIS MONEY FOR THE ASSISTANCE YOU WILL GIVE TO ME. 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 PLEASE AND PLEASE DESTROY THIS MESSAGE AS ANY LEAKAGE OF THIS INFORMATION WILL BE TOO BAD FOR US SOLDIER'S

BOMB ATTACKS BY THE SPECIAL GRACE OF GOD, THIS AND OTHER REASONS I WILL MENTION LATER HAS PROMPTED ME TO REACH OUT
 
FOR HELP, I HONESTLY WANT THIS MATTER TO BE RESOLVED IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH MY
 
E-MAIL ADDRESS WHICH IS MY ONLY WAY OF COMMUNICATION.
