Good Day, I am writen this mail to introduce my humble self as Major Lawrence Krieger I am a Civil Staff working under United States Marine Corps operating with the Engineering Military Dept unit in Baghdad, Iraq, I am presently Attached to a security company in Iraq, and I am assigned with the 1st Armored Division (Basra) in here in Iraq, as you know we are being attacked By insurgents on daily basis coupled with IED (Improvised explosive device) explosives we encounter almost every day. This has been responsible For the loss of US and British Soldiers more that combats confrontations. After the fall of Saddam Hussein, We discovered various amount of funds Running into Millions of Dollars which we returned to the new Iraqi Government. However, when the situation became critical and we began to loose soldiers on daily basis, I and my colleagues decided to keep some funds we discovered and secretly deposited this fund in a Finance Company in Baghdad, Iraq Just to help our family in case we dint make it out of Iraq alive. The total amount in the Finance Company is US$65Million dollars in cash, all in 100 dollar bills. You can visit the b.b.c web for clarification of this matter: <http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm> I and my colleagues now want to move this money to your country abroad, so that you may invest it and Keep our share .we will have this project shared 80-20 between us. All you have to do is just help receive the funds when you have them moved out of Iraq for investment. As you know, Iraq is a war zone, and movement of such an amount can be difficult due to this subject matter that resulted to restriction of all international and local transaction of huge amount of this kind in and out of Iraq, but just to make things clear to you, we have made arrangement with the bank officials where this fund is deposited here in Iraq to release the fund through their affiliated company or bank outside Iraq or using their diplomatic immunity to move these funds concealed in two cases to North America, Middle East and some Asian location, where they have freight immunity access. This is a deal which we are proposing to you to use you as a rightful beneficiary/owner of the fund as we have to change the whole documents in your name or your company name so that you can claim this fund in your name in order not for the Iraq government/U.s Government to have any trace on us due to the investigation going on. Your role is to find a safe place for the funds while our own part is make sure that the fund is sent to a secured destination where you will have no problem in either clearing or receiving the fund. But the question is can we trust you when the funds get to you? You will take your 20% for your assistance If you find it in your heart to help, I will send you the full details, my job as the header of this deal is to find a good partner that can be trusted and that will assist us in investing the funds till we come out of Iraq. If I Can trust you When you receive this Funds?, kindly send me an e-mail, signifying your interest including your telephone/fax numbers, for quick communication . NOTE: This Transaction is risk free, and the case can be shipped out within 48hrs after we have both agreed to carry out this venture. Respectfully yours, Major Lawrence Krieger
