My Dear Friend, Greetings to you and your family. My name is Capt. Gonzalez, Jr; An American Soldier serving in the military with the army's 3rd infantry division in Iraq. I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you. I am presently in Iraq and I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of US$12 million (Twelve million US Dollars) to the States or any safe country of your choice; as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved. You will find the story of this money on the web address below: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm SOURCE OF MONEY: Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farm house near one of Saddam’s old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, Staff Sgt Kenneth Buff and I agreed to share some part of this money amongst us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first. This might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hell hole. The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of an European Diplomat working with the UN here (his office enjoys immunity), I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package as I told him it contains Personal Belongings of an American soldier who died in an air raid, and before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative. As agreed the British has safely taken the luggage out Respectfully, Capt. Alexander P. Gonzalez, Jr Iraq.
