Dear Friend,
 With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I am from(will 
disclose this later), presently working in Iraq with an international organization that I will also 
disclose later, I found your contact particulars in an address journal.I am seeking your assistance 
to evacuate the sum of(US$18.523 Million Dollars) Eighteen Million, five Hundred And Twenty Three 
Thousand US Dollars to your country or any other safe country of your choice, 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 are no dangers involved.
 Some money in various currencies was discovered concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and 
ammunitions at a location near one of Saddam,sold palaces during a rescue operation, and it was 
agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us, this was quite an illegal thing to 
do, but I tell you what? no compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in 
this hell hole 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 German contact working here, and his office enjoys 
some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe cation entirely out of trouble spot. He 
does not know the real contents of the package,and believes that it belongs to an Asian/American 
who died in an air raid, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his business 
associate. I have now found a secured way of getting the package out to a safer country for you to 
pick up, and! will discuss this with you .
