Subject: Dear Friend
How are you and your family? Hope all is well, my name is Capt G smith ; I am
an American soldier, serving in the military with the army 22nd infantry Regiment.
I desperately need your assistance, and got the courage up to contact you, I
know you will be surprise, I just hope you will assist us. I found your
contact information in an address book. I am seeking your kind assistance to
move the sum of US$21m (twenty one million United States dollars) to you in
United States; as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your
care until I complete my service here.
Source of money:
Some money in US dollars were discovered in dog kennels at a farm house and
guest houses in an estate near one of Saddam old palaces in Baghdad, Iraq
during an operation, and it was agreed by Sgt. Paul, Sgt.1st Class Daniel and
I that some part of this money be shared among us before informing
about it. Since both of them saw the money first, they did the informing,
while I played the outsider to protect our interest. This was quite an illegal
thing to do, but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risk we
have taken with our lives in this hell hole, in 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, even after the initial probe of all soldiers of
our command which I was cleared from; so with the help of a British contact
working here and his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to get the package
out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. and it was believes that
it belongs to a British/American medical doctor who died in a raid here in
Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family
in United State.
now found a much secured way of getting the package out of Iraq to
States for you to pick up, and I will discuss this with you when I am sure
that you are willing to assist me, and I believe and pray that my money will
be well secured in your hand.
I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the
assistance you will give to me. One thing I passionately ask from 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 leak of this information
will be very bad for us soldier here in Iraq and tarnish the reputation of
other services men.
I do not know how long we will remain here, and I have been shot, wounded and
survived two suicide bomb attacks by special grace, this and other reasons I
will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, I honestly want this
matter to be resolved immediately, please
contact me as soon as possible for
now my personal email: as this is my only way of communication until I
God Bless you and your family.
Capt. G. Smith
