Dear Friend,

I am James Barry, an army contractor attached to the army force in Iraq.

On the 27th day of June 2009, I and my men discovered a metal box containing US Dollars, which is 
a total figure mark $8.2 Million. We believe the box was owned and linked to late Saddam Hussein.

We hid the box containing the money in untraceable location, and we are in desperate need of 
a reliable and trustworthy person whom will receive and secure the box containing the US Dollars. 
We can't afford to leave the box here in Iraq for any reason since Iraq is getting unsafe and 
every day. We have no idea what could happen next as everything remains inconclusive at this point.

I am fully aware of what your thought would be, I will forward you my picture as well as my 
Identity, for 
you to know who you are dealing with.

You will be compensated with 15% of this fund, please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret 
that my job would not be jeopardized.

James Barry
