Dear Friend,

Thanks for your mail. I am presently in Iraq with the US marine Forces; I have secured the money as being agreed and have every proof of this transaction.

I will transfer the fund through HSBC Bank as I have discussed with the Bank Manager, They do International fund transfer. I will inform you on what to do when I finally transfer the complete money into your personal bank account as your share still remains 20% of the total fund.

All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this Fund have been worked out. This transaction is 100% free risk but requires 100 percent confidentiality. This is a golden opportunity which much not be allowed to slip out of any careless acts and utterances.

I have intentionally left out the final details for now until I hear from you. To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal kindly send your correct bank account details to enable me start transferring the fund immediately and your direct mobile telephone number for easy communication as I cannot leave Iraq because of the nature of my work.

I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible via my private EMAIL: ( and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity, do not disclose this transaction to anybody as to protect my duty with the US Army.

Thanks and Best Regards in anticipation of your response

Captain Dillion Preston.
