My name is Sgt.Mark Johnson; I am an American soldier with Swiss background, serving in the military with the 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance, and I have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of (US$25 million) Twenty Five million United States dollars to you, as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here, this is no stolen money, and there is no danger involved.

Source of money:

Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farm house near one of Saddam old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by staff Sgt Kenneth buff and I that some part of this money be shared among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first. 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 week. The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working here and his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to a British/American medical doctor who died in a raid here in Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family in united states.

Now this where you come in, if you are willing to assist me in this transaction, the money has been packaged as family valuables goods and it will be delivered to America in two days, if you are willing to assist me I no this venture you are advised to get back to me with your complete contact
information which will be forwarded to the diplomat who is carrying the said consignment. He will contact you on your direct phone number for the clearance of the consignment from the homeland security at J.F.K international airport, after that the consignment will proceed to your home which is the final destination, note that it is not a must that you should assist me in this transaction but if you are willing and sincere to help me out in this transaction be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free and it does not contradict the laws of any country. Indicate your interest in assisting me as well as providing the following information to facilitate the smooth conclusion of the Transaction.

2) Your Address: ---------------------------------------------
3) Your Telephone Number: ---------------------------

One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, in case you are not interested as the disclosing of this information
would be a risk for us soldier? Here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, and I have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide 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 my only way of communication email.

I also want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give to me. God Bless You As You Help Out.
