Hello, My name is John Bright, I am an American soldier in peace keeping force in Iraq and serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq . As you know insurgents attack us daily. We succeeded in moving funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family totaling US $23 Million dollars in cash and would like to transfer this money to you for safe keeping till we can come over to meet you and for your efforts we would give you 40% while the remaining 60% will be for my partners and I. Since Iraq is a war zone we plan on using diplomatic courier and shipping the money out in three large silver boxes, using diplomatic immunity. If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us; the question is can I trust you? When you receive this mail, kindly send me a reply signifying your interest also include your full name, contact address, age, sex and private telephone/fax numbers for quick communication and any other relevant contact details. This transaction is simple and risk free and the boxes can be shipped out in 48hrs. Regards, John Bright email@example.com
