Dear Sir/Madam, This mail might be a surprise to you but i want to implore that you should ignore the temptation of taking this for granted.I am Capt. John England Jr, an Army Contractor attached to US ARMY. I was working with the US Army of D'Company,2nd Battalion,22nd Infantry Regiment,Iraq.I and my crew members discovered $700M USD in Saddam Hussein's palace in April 2003 during the searched by US troops.The money had been hidden behind the false wall of a house. It is thought the stash could have been left by fleeing regime leaders. We managed to move away a total sum of US$7.5 Million dollars cash out from the $700M USD, mostly 100-dollar bills and was quickly flown out of the war zone and deposited in an undisclosed secured and secret location outside the middle east after we have all agreed to keep it secret since the war was still on. But unfortunately, the rest of my crew members have lost their lives to the wicked Iraqi insurgents,as you know we were being attacked by insurgents everyday and car Bombs. I have kept tis is secrete within me for 5years now since i am the only survival now and I cannot leave the boxes in the security company as these as attract more expenses on demurrage as long as the boxes is still with the security company. I am now in desperate need of a "Reliable and Trustworthy" person as partner to assist me transfer these funds into an account and invest the funds without further delay since i cannot come out openly to claim it and at the same time five US soldiers are currently being questioned by military officials after some of Saddam Hussein's money was allegedly stolen following It's discovery.You can click on the web site for more details of my story.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm.So please If you are interested I will take 65% while you take the other 30% and 5% will be for expenses, no strings. I will send you the full details and the location of the funds but my fear is Can I trust you? If your are willing When you receive this letter, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your most confidential telephone/fax numbers in order to forward to the security firm for the release of the funds in your names or your company. Please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret within you so that my life would not be jeopardized and to safe my Country's image and my name.N/B: If interested, Respectfully, Capt.
