Dear Confident How is everything going, I hope great? Though I have not considered this medium to be the best means to have approached you on this issue being that the internet has been greatly abused over the recent years and sometimes unsecured for information of vital importance. I have decided to use email to reach you seeing that no other means could have been faster and more efficient. Though you do not know me, but please consider this letter as a request from a sister in dire need of assistance. My name is ETHEL BRADLEY (Sgt) a UK soldier, presently serving in the 3rd Infantry Division here in Iraq . We are handing over positions to Iraqis and During one of our rescue Missions in central Baghdad we came across a container with the sum of $21,000,000 (Twenty One Million Us Dollars) we suspect that it belongs to the insurgents who too to their heels as we approached their territory. It has been agreed that all of us present will share it amongst us. You can check in this websites link to read. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm Out of the total fund my personal share is $6,000,000 (Six Million US Dollars). I am seeking your assistance to evacuate my share of the money, which is $6,000,000 out of here to you; in as much as you can assure me that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here in few months. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved, as I have made arrangements with a UN representative who promised to deliver the fund to any of my choosing destination. I shall be compensating you with US$2,000,000 (Two Million Dollars) immediately we conclude, while the rest shall be for me for my investment purposes. One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with a third party, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please destroy this e-mail as any leakage of this information will be too bad for me. I survived a suicide bomb attack last month, which prompted me to reach out for help because I will be leaving Iraq soon to meet you as to invest and start a new life not as a soldier anymore. Please if this proposal is acceptable by you, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your most confidential telephone numbers for quick communication also your home or office address where the fund would be delivered. As soon as I receive your e-mail with the information, I will furnish you with Full details on when and how the fund shall be delivered to you by the UN official and he will make a contact with you before any move. Waiting for your urgent reply. Best Regards, Sgt. Ethel BRADLEY
