Greetings Most Esteemed Partner,
I am sorry for the late response to your mail, you have to know that down here we have been having a very busy week,but every thing is alright now.there are things i must let you know about on this deal.I need to tell you what am seeking from you Partner.
Before we proceed let me take a little time to explain the origin of these funds and why I'm sending them to you. During our war campaign in Iraq my team was responsible for a lot of raids on Saddam (Iraqi former president) palaces and while one of such raids was going we discovered the sum of $140 Million dollars packed into
military trunk boxes and hidden in Saddam's underground secret chambers.
As a soldier my first instinct was to report this to my commanding officer but on a second thought I have sacrificed years of my life to serving and protecting my great country, most of us have lost friends and loved ones in the line of duty for me i have been married twice of which none ever lasted for up to 3yrs due to the nature of my job. My 16yr old son turned to drugs as he lacked parental guidance and eventually died from overdose as a matter of fact i can't begin to mention all my sacrifices and losses but know that the glory of America is built on our pain & blood this is why i decided to use this opportunity to make some fortune for myself since the funds belonged to an ex tyrant whom we captured and has been executed by the
International court of justice. As the leader of my unit i reported $100 million dollars out of the funds we discovered and used my position to ship the remaining $40million dollars to you for safekeeping until after my assignment as we have been deployed to Afghanistan to help out in the on going war on terror.
I know you might be wandering how i got your information for this, well i am a level six holder, and i have access to the Department Of Defense Database (DOD) data base, and I believe I can trust you also for you been someone i can trust. With that,i decided to send this boxes to you via a secured delivery company,It is most important that you take this deal very seriously. i know i may have crossed the line by shipping the boxes to you without your consent but the deed is already done,this happened due to the rush down here,as we have been deployed to Afghanistan to
assist on the on going war against terrorism, with that i had to rush things up, and i was unable to let you know before now,please accept my apologies about that. The boxes were sent via Swift Military Courier as a special and secured immunity delivery to you, it was done this way so as to avoid hackers on line from tracking the boxes and sending them to the wrong person.I must assure you that you will benefit very well and you will never regret assisting me, but on the other hand you MUST be very careful never to expose this deal otherwise we would both be in serious trouble. Apart from any carelessness from your side, i have already made solid plans to ensure that this deal is 100% untraceable. Your efforts and assistance will be rewarded with 30% of the money if you are able to handle this deal and keep the boxes safe until i return to the U.S. I already took care of all shipping expenses including insurance and delivery cost all you need to do is
contact the delivery man so that he can give you the details of the status of the boxes, I have already took care of all shipping expenses including insurance and delivery cost all you need to do is contact the delivery man so that he can give you the details of the status of the boxes.

combination code which i would forward you with as soon as i get a confirmation from you that you have received the boxes. I chose to do this with you because i feel you can be trusted, and you match the whole criteria i need in making this deal a success.
I know you might be wandering why i did not send to my family, well i need you to know that the only Family i have is my only daughter that is just 16 and my Mum whom is presently 85 and not strong enough. Most of my friends are all in the US army,and you know the confidentiality of this deal, so they must know nothing about the deal.
Please Partner I have $40 million in those boxes. Please let me know if this is going to work out, and also if you are trust worthy, The boxes are in the USA now, and it has your name on it and all the legal
paper works that proves you as the rightful receiver of the boxes. Any information you want please let me know. Note: If you are equal to this tax you have to keep this as a little secret until this boxes get to your door step. Even the Delivery man shouldn't know the content of this boxes as he is not aware that the boxes contain raw cash, because i made it clear to them that you are my cousin whom i am sending my personal military effects, so no one knows nothing about this,and also, for security reasons, i feel it would be best we take care of this via e-mails,because making calls might be risky as our conversation might be monitored or tapped into.
