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:
