Dear Sir, Please reply via Email: email@example.com and KEEP THIS CONFIDENTIAL DUE TO ITS NATURE PLEASE. INVESTMENT I quite understand that you may not actually know me but got your contact data in the address journal as I was searching for somebody to invest with in your country and having gone through your profile I then decided to confined this truth with you. The secret behind my sudden contact with you was based that some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Saddam's old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by staff Sgt David 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 considering that no military compensation can be of better value for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole.. The figure about $8.3m was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so I carefully packaged and sealed it properly and 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 having told him it is medical photographic laboratory materials belonging 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 and he believed me knowing fully the environment in Iraq. Now I have decided to use you if you are willing to assist me in this matter to collect the money from the security company as the money has been packed and declared by me as photographic x ray materials as it was carefully arranged in US$100 Bills. Therefore, kindly provide me with the following in formations for submission to the carrier company as I do not have time here to run this affiars, hence I have decided to entrust everything to your care so that we shall jointly use it for investment into real estates/hotels or any profitable investment as you may choose. The reason I had wanted to quit but I cannot do so when I have nothing at hand, that is why it is necessary you do your best possible to see a way as to secure my life and our future favor because you know if I escape from here, I will fly down to your home for as I will not go back my home in the states as I will be court marshaled but if I can take refuge in your home country, we can establish there pending after a period of 3 years, I can then move to my home in the states if we care because after 3 years without the military tracing my way about, I am legally free to exercise my rights since I never committed any criminal offenses only deserted from the military. Again, you know I don't have any telephone for public use as it is extremely restricted for use by soldiers as we only have walkies talkies for in camp communications among ourselves, so if I have your phone, I can easily call you when I am free as not all days we are free even to check our mails because of military discipline. The security company where the box is deposited does not know that the original contents are USD CURRENCY, as we used our military influence to conceal it and declare it as x ray photographic materials. Kindly provide me with these datas for submission to the company holding the package so that they can bring it to your at your home if possible. (a)Your Full Name: (b) Your Address: (c) Your Telephone Number:(d)Your Fax Number: (e) Your Mobile Number Thanking you while expecting to get details from you for your immidiate recovery of the package from the security company.
