Hello, Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Sgt. Hans Lynch a British soldier currently in Iraq. I am originally from Britain, but my Mother is from Spain. I am desperately in need of assistance and I summoned up courage to contact you. I am presently in Iraq and I found your contact in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $5,720,000.00 (Five Million Seven Hundred and Twenty Thousand US Dollars) to your country 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. SOURCE OF MONEY: 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.

No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hell hole. 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 British 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 a British who died in an air raid, who 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 2 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 relationship. I wait for your full details information: " Your Full Name: " Your Address " Your direct Tele Phone " Your occupation and Age Respectfully, Sgt. Hans Lynch Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
