Dear Friend,

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you; I know you would 
be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you before now. My name is Sgt Mark Hoopes, 
a master Sgt. of The U.S.ARMY, deployed to Iraq in the beginning of the war in 2003.

I contacted you to assist me to receive and invest on my behalf the sum of US$10,200,000.00 (Ten 
Million, Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) which I got from Crude Oil deal here in 
Iraq, the funds is in a safe consignment currently deposited with a Red Cross Agent.

All I require from you is your honesty and maximum co-operation which this transaction deserves 
considering what happened to my friend last year 2009 he lost US$23Million to an Italian business 
man. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response I can assure you that this transaction will 
take only five (5) days to be completed once I receive your positive response.

I guarantee that this will be executed under 100% legitimate arrangement that will protect you from 
any breach of the law. Though I would like to hold back certain information for security reasons 
for now until you have found time to visit the BBC website stated below and see the opportunity 
that came across some of us in the course of our duty in Iraq.

Please do get back to me urgently with your decision to enable me make an alternative arrangement 
if the need should arise, however, i am offering you 30% of the fund while you keep 70% for me for 
viable investment.



Sgt, Mark Hoopes
