Subject: Investment Purpose.
I am highly delighted to contact you and sorry for the
embarrassment this mail might bring to you as we have not met or
known each other ; it is with trust and belief that I write to you.
I am a captain with the British Army in Iraq,on war against terrorism.
I have a business proposal for you that will be of immense benefit to
both of us as i intent to invest in your country.
Based on the British legislative and executive decision for
withdrawing troops from Iraq on the advent of President
Obama,I have been deployed to come and work in one of EU military base.
Our mission is to help beef up security in terrorist targeted
states,mostly the United states and the European Union.
On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession
the sum of $16.2million USD, which was recovered from one of our raids
on terrorists here in Iraq because they keep most of their money which
they normally get through illegal deals on crude oil at home for evil
Based on the suffering we undergo here some of us do meet such luck.
It happened that I went for this raid with the men in my unit and I
decided to take it as my share for my stress here in this evil land
filled with suicide bombers.I deposited this money with a red cross
agent informing him that we are making
contact for the real owner of
the money.It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this
money. I wish to invest this money anywhere in the worldoutside the
United Kingdom because that is where I intend to move over with my
family at my retirement.
I cannot move this money to Britain because i am a uniformed man and I
cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the
beneficiary.If you accept,I will transfer the money to where you
will be the beneficiary.
I am English and an intelligence officer,so I have 100%
authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier
service .I just need your acceptance and all is done. Please if you
are interested in this transaction I will give to you the complete
details you need for us to carry out this
We can only communicate through our military communication facilities
which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails,I will only reach you
through email,because our calls might be monitored,I just have to be
sure whom I am dealing with.
If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I
can call you when I am out of our military network.I am writing from a
fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this
email and please delete this message.
I wait for your response so we can proceed. If you are interested,In
less than 7days the money will be credited in your account and I will
come over for my money.I will give to you 30% of the sum and 70% is for
me.I hope I am been fair on this deal.
Please reply to:email@example.com
