I am Colonel James Frank, a British soldier attached to the Coalition
force in Afghanistan ; I am the Commanding Officer Commando Logistic
Regiment Royal Marines.
What I am about to share with you is very confidential. We intercepted
a suspected Taliban group in Lashkar Gah in Helmand Province with
some cargoes. The gun battle that ensured led to the death of some
while others abandoned their cargo and took to their heals.
On a closer examination of the cargos a special consignment containing
US $8.5 Million Dollars in cash was discovered by one of my special
agents who took me into confidence. I had considered his prayers for
the use of this money for charity and the options available for me as
the commander of this regiment. In the heat of the moment, such humane
decisions cannot easily be taken hence I have decided to secure this
money outside of here and with a distant fellow until I shall have the
privilege to be relived of my duty.
Therefore, I solicit your assistance to help me receive this money and
secure this money in an investment until we are through with our
service here then I can come to your country. I have perfected
arrangements to ship this money out in two large metallic Boxes to you
using Diplomatic courierbecause I have deposited this box of money with Diplomatic/Courier Company in Europe which I am willing to forward their contact information to you as soon as I hear from you.
We are willing to give you 30% while you will keep the remaining in an
investment for us until after our assignment here. Can I trust you? If
you are interested send to me via this email your confidential
Telephone/fax numbers, your contact details for quick communication.
This exchange is 100% risk free.
Col James Frank
