Good Day,

I found your contact particulars in an E-mail address guide they provide
us here, as I desperately needed an  urgent help to do this deal. I am
seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of $12m {Twelve Million U.S
Dollars only} to you  as far as I can be assured that my share will be
safe in your care until I complete my service here.


A lot of money in various currencies were discovered in  barrels at a
farmhouse near one of Saddams old palaces in Tikrit in Iraq during an
operation Conquest in Fallujah north of Baghdad, and it was agreed by
Staff  Sgt. Kenneth Buff and I that some part of this money be shared
among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw
the money first. This is quite an illegal thing to do, but will tell you
what?  No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our
lives in this hell hole, of which my brother in-law was killed by a road
side bomb last time.

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 here, at Southern Basra British fortified green zone, whose 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, and believes that it belongs to a British/American medical doctor
who died in a raid here in Baghdad, and before giving up, trusted me to
hand over the package to his family. I have now found a very secured way
of getting the package out of Iraq to you, for you to pick it up, and I
will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist
me, and I believe that my money will be well secured in your hand because
you have fear of God. I want you to tell me how much you will take from
this money for the assistance you will give me. One passionate appeal I
will make to you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you
have reasons to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message
as any leakage of this information will be too bad and catastrophic for
soldiers here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, but I
hope to have a shift very soon for me to return back to the States. I have
been shot and wounded twice and I have survived two terrible suicides bomb
attacks just by special grace of God, this and other reasons I will
mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, I will honestly want
this matter be resolved immediately, Please contact me as soon as possible
with my private email address which is my only way of communication for
