Hi Friend, How re you doing? Hope you don't feel bad about my email to you as a stranger. Well, am Captain Thomas Hitt of the US Army currently deployed to Ba'qubah in Iraq for peace keeping. I need your assistance in getting some deal done. I have these two boxes here containing 14.3 Million dollars which i got here some time ago when some boxes of money was found during our routine raid round the base.Based on the suffering we undergo here some of us do meet such luck. We decided to take it as our share for the stress here in this evil land filled with suicide bombers. We deposited this money with a red cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money.It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money. this money have been here for some time now but right now, we need to take it out of here as my military assignment here will be over next Month. I am a uniformed man and we cannot be parading such an amount so my partner and I need to present someone out there in the free world as the beneficiary someone we can trust to receive the boxes on our behalf. This is legal and there will be no risk involved in it considering the plan we have got on ground to get this done. The most important thing is: "CAN WE TRUST YOU?", If so it would be wise working with somebody like you.If you accept,I have 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic means. I just need your acceptance and all is done. Please if you are interested in this transaction, get back to me so that i will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message. I am doing this on trust,you should understand and you should know that as a trained military expert I will always play safe . You will get 20% of the 10M bucks as your share and keep the remaining 80% for us. Your own part of the deal is to find safe place where these boxes of money can be sent to , and ours is sending it to you safely without any problem. Where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails.I will only reach you through email ,because our calls might be monitored. For your verification of my story, check out this news link as the story of the found boxes of money were on the air; http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm I look forward to your urgent response to my request and co-operation. Like i said earlier, we have kept this money for a long time but right now it gotta be moved out as my military assignment is coming to an end. Regards, Captain Thomas
