Hello, How are you doing today? Hope you all are doing alright. My name is Sgt. Wayne D. Haley and I am an American soldier serving in the military of the 3rd infantry division in Iraq. As you know, we are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombings. I have summed up courage to contact you with a very desperate need for assistance. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of ( $25 million US dollars ) 25 million 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. Here below is how we discovered the money: Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farm house near one of Saddam's old palaces in Baghdad -Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by staff Sgt Jude Wayne and I that some part of this money be shared among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first. This 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 hell hole. of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last time. You can view the link attached to this mail and read how we discovered the money: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm Please I would appreciate your genuinely and trustworthy to handle this money with utmost care when you received the package and keep the secret to yourself alone as you are aware that i am still serving as a soldier, I would not want anything that will ruin my reputation in united states military record. I will give you 40% of the total money for your kindness, please if that is okay with you then let me know asap. I do not know how long we will remain here as we will soon move to Afghanistan, so I want us to conclude every arrangement as soon as possible. I have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by the special grace of god, this and other reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please contact me as soon as possible with my e-mail address which is my only way of communication. God bless you and your family, in god we trust. Sgt. Wayne D. Haley.
