Good day, My name is Sgt.Richard Thomas, I am an Irish soldier, I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq , as you know we are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs. We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family in 2005. The total amount is US$25 Million dollars in cash, mostly 100 dollar bills, this money has been kept somewhere outside Baghdad for sometime but with the proposed troop reduction by president Obama, we are afraid that the money will be discovered hence we want to move this money to you for safe keeping pending the completion of our assignment here. You can go to this web link to read about events that took place then via this site: news.bbc.co.uk/2 Barrister John Raymond: news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm we are ready to compensate you with good percentage of the funds, No strings attached, just for you to help us move it out of Iraq . Iraq is a war zone, so we plan on using diplomatic means in shipping the money out as military cargo using diplomatic immunity.
