Dear Friend,
My name is Col. Brian Dennison Kent, a US Army serving in the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. I want you to read this mail carefully and understand it.
In 2003, my men and I found over $900 million in Saddam Hussein's hideout in Baghdad, we sent some back to the Iraq government after counting it in a classified location, but we also kept some behind for ourselves. Some of the money we shared among ourselves worth over $200million, I kept mine for a while in a secured place.President Barrack Obama is making plans on pulling us out of Iraq, right now we are out of the major cities of Iraq.

I need someone to help me, everything is ready.I just need someone I can trust because i lost a box of gold to someone that said he will help me,I won't like to make the same mistake.The total amount of money is $10million. View the  below link to verify/confirm my statement.
If you can handle this deal let me know immediately, you will receive 20% of the money , all you need to do is to find a safe place where you can keep the box till i leave Iraq. Get back to me immediately at:


Col. Brian D.Kent
US Military Baghdad,Iraq.
