FROM MR PETER JEFFERSON,
I hope my email meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My name is Major Mark Hugh, Jr. I am in the trategic/information military unit working with some Iraqi here in Bagdad in Iraq. We have about $15.5 Million US dollars that we want to move out of the country. My partners and I need a good partner that we can trust.
We have moved it through diplomatic means, and it is presently in a finance/securities agency vault in Europe. You are to contact this firm on our behalf to send it to a bank of your choice conforming with all banking regulations. You can also personally go for its claim at the office of this mission in Europe. The most important thing is that can we trust you? Once the funds get to you, you take your 30% out and keep our own 70%. Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to. Our own part is sending your particulars as the beneficiary to the security company.
If you are interested I will furnish you with more details. But the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all times.
Waiting for your urgent response. Contact me through my private secured email: firstname.lastname@example.org
