Hello, I am Captain Alex Car.However, I have a burden that dwells with me at the moment, and I wish to settle this with you in trust and confidentiality. It comes as a business proposition to you. On the other hand I want to inform you that there is 26.8 million USD in my disposition. This money was recovered from a mansion belonging to one of Sadam Hussein's men who was a crude oil exporter here in Iraq. The money was stacked in a trunk box all in 100 dollar bills. I deposited this money with a Red Cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money because I have intended to keep this money for my use as soon as my time here is over. There is no official record of this money. It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money. I cannot move this money to my country because I will be in Europe for about 3years, so I need someone I could trust. If you accept, I will authorize the transfer the money to Europe where you will be the beneficiary because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount moreover I will need to explain the source of the money if I try to claim it in person. I need to present you as the beneficiary. I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service to Europe .I just need your acceptance and assurance, that you can handle this responsibility and clear the consignment from the customs when it gets to Europe. I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully. I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured site where I can be sure that the person is real. I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with. If you are interested please send me your personal information and I will get back to you with further information. I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message, if no response after 3days, I will then search for someone else. I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 5days the money should have been noted in your country and I will come over for my money. I will give to you 30% of the sum and 70% is for me. I hope I am been fair on this deal. Get back to me with your full information via email@example.com:---- YOUR FULL NAME, FULL ADDRESS, OCCUPATION YOUR DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER. Best Regards, Captain Alex Carr
