Dear Friend, Compliments of the day, I am Major Jamario Elwood Sr, a United States 3rd infantry division Soldier stationed in Basra/Baghdad in Iraq. I write to solicit for your assistance in investing the sum of $29.9m United States Dollars in your country. The funds were realized by me and some other soldiers during one of our operations in the areas occupied by late president Saddam Hussein. During the operations, we discovered cash of millions of United States Dollars in many boxes kept by Saddam Hussein in one of his strong rooms and we were able to sneak and take away one trunk box containing $29.9m out of the boxes discovered by the United States Army and now looking for an investor. Please confirm my letter to you through this web site: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm.As soon as you indicate your support to investing the funds in your country, details will be sent to you for official arrangements. Basic reasons for choosing you as our investor are as follows: 1) We are not allowed to doing any other business out of military operations 2) We do not want the funds to be exposed to the USA military high command here in Iraq. 3) We do not know much about investment as our knowledge are centered on military jobs only 4) We want the funds to be invested out of Iraq for security reasons. When we have finally established mutual understanding and co operation with you, you will be connected to our lawyer in London for further arrangements on how you will secure the container. As soon as you are in full control of the funds in your country, our lawyer will meet you in your country thereafter for the signing of an agreement on the partnership. We need your sincerity and confidentiality. You will have 35% of the funds as your share while you will help us invest 65% in your country on profitable ventures only. You can contact me on my private email address: email@example.com. Waiting for your urgent response. Major Jamario Elwood Sr United States Military Base Basra/Baghdad, Iraq
