I'M SGT IRVIN BROWN, AN AMERICAN SOLDIER, SERVING IN THE MILITARY WITH THE ARMY’S 3RD INFANTRY 
DIVISION. I HAVE A VERY DESPERATE NEED FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE AND HAVE SUMMED UP COURAGE TO CONTACT 
YOU.
 
I FOUND YOUR CONTACT PARTICULARS IN AN ADDRESS JOURNAL AND I AM SEEKING YOUR KIND ASSISTANCE TO 
MOVE THE SUM OF EIGHT MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$8,000,000) TO YOU IN UNITED STATES, AS FAR 
AS I CAN BE ASSURED THAT MY SHARE WILL BE SAFE IN YOUR CARE TILL I COMEOVER
 
SOURCE OF MONEY:
SOME MONEY IN VARIOUS CURRENCIES WERE DISCOVERED IN BARRELS AT A FARMHOUSE NEAR ONE OF SADDAM’S OLD 
PALACES IN TIKRIT-IRAQ DURING A RESCUE OPERATION, AND IT WAS AGREED BY STAFF SGT KENNETH BUFF AND I 
THAT SOME PART OF THIS MONEY BE SHARED BETWEEN BOTH OF US BEFORE INFORMING ANYBODY ABOUT IT SINCE 
BOTH OF US SAW THE MONEY FIRST. THIS WAS QUITE AN ILLEGAL THING TO DO, BUT I TELL YOU WHAT! NO 
COMPENSATION CAN MAKE UP FOR THE RISK WE HAVE TAKEN WITH OUR LIVES IN THIS HELL HOLE, OF WHICH MY 
BROTHER IN-LAW WAS KILLED BY A ROAD SIDE BOMB LAST TIME.
 
THE ABOVE FIGURE WAS GIVEN TO ME AS MY SHARE, AND TO CONCEAL THIS KIND OF MONEY BECAME A PROBLEM 
FOR ME ESPECIALLY NOW THAT WE ARE COMING HOME BUT WITH THE HELP OF A BRITISH CONTACT WORKING HERE 
AND WITH HIS OFFICE ENJOYING SOME 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, AND BELIEVES THAT 
IT BELONGS TO A BRITISH/AMERICAN MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO DIED IN A RAID HERE IN IRAQ, AND BEFORE GIVING 
UP, TRUSTED ME TO HAND OVER THE PACKAGE TO HIS FAMILY IN UNITED STATES. I HAVE NOW FOUND A VERY 
SECURED WAY OF GETTING THE PACKAGE OUT OF IRAQ TO YOU AT HOME FOR YOU TO PICK UP, AND I WILL 
DISCUSS THIS WITH YOU WHEN I AM SURE THAT YOU ARE WILLING TO ASSIST ME AND THAT MY MONEY WILL BE 
WELL SECURED IN YOUR HAND.
 
I WANT YOU TO TELL ME HOW MUCH YOU WILL TAKE FROM THIS MONEY FOR THE ASSISTANCE YOU WILL GIVE TO 
ME. ONE PASSIONATE APPEAL I WILL MAKE TO YOU IS NOT TO DISCUSS THIS MATTER WITH ANYBODY, SHOULD YOU 
HAVE REASONS TO REJECT THIS OFFER, PLEASE AND PLEASE DESTROY THIS MESSAGE AS ANY LEAKAGE OF THIS 
INFORMATION WILL BE TOO BAD FOR THE U.S. SOLDIER’S HERE IN IRAQ. I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG WE WILL 
REMAIN HERE AS THE GOVERNMENT IS WORKING VERY HARD TO BRING EVERYBODY HOME, MONTH OF MAY WAS THE 
DEADLIEST MONTH FOR US OUT HERE. TOTALY, WE LOST 127 MEN AND I HAVE BEEN SHOT, WOUNDED AND SURVIVED 
TWO SUICIDE BOMB ATTACKS BY THE SPECIAL GRACE OF GOD. THIS AND OTHER REASONS I WILL MENTION LATER 
HAS PROMPTED ME TO REACH OUT FOR HELP TO SECURE THIS MONEY. I HONESTLY WANT THIS MATTER TO BE 
RESOLVED IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH MY PRIVATE E-MAILADDRESS WHICH IS 
MY ONLY WAY OF COMMUNICATION FOR NOW (E-MAIL: sgtibrown@yahoo.co.jp)
 
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
 
 
SGT. IRVIN BROWN
