Iraq with an Iraqi citizen.I need a good partner who I can trust to assist
me in receiving the consignment on my behalf.
All arrangement to bring out the consignment from Iraq i have being
concluded with a United Nations diplomat.I need someone who can receive it

I am offering you 20% of the total sum for your assistance and the 80% will
be transferred to my account which I will instruct you in my next email to
you on how it will be transferred to my account.

Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be
sent to. If you are interested I will furnish you with more details.But the
whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all times.The
best mode of communication to me is through email.
