Dear Associate,

How are you doing my friend, great I guess  Now I know this mail will definitely Come to you as a 
huge surprise, but please kindly take your time to go through it carefully as the decision you make 
will probably go a long way to determine my future and continued existence.

First,let me introduce myself. I am Capt. Alfred Clifford an  assigned to 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine 
Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force, western Anbar Province 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 $20,570,000 (Twenty million Five Hundred and 
Seventy Thousand USD) to the States or any safe country, 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.


Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and 
ammunition at a location near one of Saddam Hussein's old Presidential Palaces during a rescue 
operation and it was agreed by all party present that the money Be shared amongst us. 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 hellhole. 

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 a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys 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 as he believes that it belongs to an American who died in an air 
raid, before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative. I have now found 
a secured way of getting the package out !of Iraq for you to pick up.

I do not know for how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive two suicide bomb 
attacks by Pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me 
to reach out for help. If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to contact me and we would 
work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually benefiting
