Hello Sir, Sorry for my delay in replying your mail. I couldn’t get to a computer any sooner. I am grateful for your response to my request and I have all the information I need at this time. but I have a business proposal for you and I hope you can help me as it is important to my buying from you too. I am a captain with the United Nations troop in Iraq on war against terrorism. find attach copy of my pictures in Iraq Based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Iraq, I have been deployed to come and work with your country's intelligence gathering unit. Our mission is to help beef up security in terrorist targeted states within your region. On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of 16..2 million USD. which i got from crude oil deal here in Iraq. I deposited this money with a red cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money. It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money. I want to invest the money in your country as soon as I am deployed into your country for a good business, anyway you will advice me on that since I am not a business person. I cannot move this money to the United states because I will be in your country for about 3 years, so I need someone I could trust. If you accept, I will transfer the money to your country where you will be the beneficiary because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary. I am an American and an intelligence officer for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service . I just need your acceptance and all is done. Please if you are interested in this transaction I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully. I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured site where I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you. where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails, then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through email, because our calls might be monitored, I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with. If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I can call you for further enquiries when I am out of our military network. I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message, if no response after 3 days I will then search for someone else. I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 5 days the money should have been noted on your account and I will come over for my money. I will give to you 30% of the sum and 70% is for me. I hope I am been fair on this deal. Get back to me with your full information: YOUR FULL NAME......... YOUR FULL ADDRESS.................... YOUR DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER......... YOUR AGE.............. Regards, Capt Jeffery Porter Alan
