Good Day, My name is Sgt. Billy Monroe Ingle Jr, I am an American soldier with Carribean background, serving in the military with the Army's 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance,I have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of (US$17,600,000M) Seventeen Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars to you, as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here, this is not a stolen money, and there is no danger involved. Source of money: Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Saddam's old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation. Sgt Kenneth Buff who saw part of this money with me,insisted that the money must be shared among both of us before informing anybody about it, but the quetsion is how and where should we keep this money without the knowledge of other higher army officers,it was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hellhole of which a roadside bomb killed my brother in-law last week.You will find the story of this money on the web address below: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British Envoy by the name of Comrade Larry Owen and because his office enjoys some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safer location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to a British / American medical doctor who died in a raid here in Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family in united states.I have now found a much-secured way of getting the package out of Iraq to your country for you to pick up, and I will discuss this with you when I am sure you are willing to assist me. I will be discusing further with you regarding the confidentiality of this venture in the receipt of your reply. With your williness and zeal in this brochure, I will be offering you 30% of the total Sum, 65% for me and 5% to be donted to any notable charity ! organization and less previleged. Thanks, looking foward to hearing from you. and please do contact this email Address: (email@example.com) God Bless. Sgt. Billy Monroe Ingle Jr
