Dear Friend,

Permit the manner with which I am seeking your assistance but I am short of options and have no other choice. I am John England from the hospitality state (Mississippi), an army contractor attached to the US Army corps of Engineers and Military force in Iraq. The reason why I am explaining my findings to you are to seek for your assistance to enable you contributes immensely to the actualization of my dream.

I am attached to the US army for the sole purpose of reconstruction work in some parts of Iraq. As you very well know Iraq is gradually undergoing a rebuilding process in some parts and there are much needs for reconstruction which is were I come in. I evaluate the level of destruction and offer professional advice in line with the way they intend rebuilding. Work has been risky no doubt and challenging as sometimes we are faced head on with armed insurgents where we lose some soldiers during confrontation. I have had my own share of losses as I lost a very good friend also an army contractor whom I have known for 12 years.

On the 23th day of July 2007, I and my group of 2 Army Engineers were alerted on the need of some reconstruction works in Haifa Street, a long thoroughfare of high-rise buildings built and occupied by Saddam Hussein when he was alive here in Baghdad. We proceeded to the marked site and as I commenced evaluation work, I discovered an unusual bulge in a cellar which I presumed to be a storage room. I decided to have a go at it and the metal covering was kicked in only to find a metal box. I told my men to open the box in order to find out the contents and when they were opened to our amazement the box contained some US Dollars which amounted to $10.2 Million after I and two of the men counted them.

I however instructed them to keep this in high secrecy so that we can have the money to our selves, they all agreed to the plan and we were going to get the money out of the country but first we had to hide the money in a safe and untraceable location. I am now in desperate need of a "Reliable and Trustworthy" person like you who would receive, secure and protect these boxes containing the US Dollars for me up on till my assignment elapses here. We cannot afford to leave the boxes here in Iraq for any reason since Iraq is getting unsafe and dangerous everyday. We have no idea what could happen next as everything remains inconclusive at this point. I am fully aware of what your thoughts would be next which is why I intend to include my picture as well as my I.D.s for you to confirm the personality with whom you are dealing. I assure and promise to give you 10% of this fund, however feel free to negotiate what you wish to have as your percentage in this deal.

Please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret within you so that my job would not be jeopardized. For more classified information’s, contact me through my private email address at;


My Sincere Regards,
John England.
