Subject: Can You Be Trusted ?
Greeting from Iraq
I pray you do not misconstrue the content of this mail and I plead that don't
get tempted to over look and discard mail for reason of contacting you through
this medium.Yes it is true that the internet has been invaded by dishonest
people who are nothing but scammers.But this is a different case. I am opting
for email contact since it still remains a discreet means of communication. It
is the quickest and secure mode of communication under the circumstance I found
myself at the moment.However I am wary and cautious while sending this message
to you until I an convinced you quite understand its importance and I am
therefore holding back specifics for security reasons until you revert with a
confirmation of a visit/view of the news websites which are meant to give you
historical background and insight, as well as the source of funds in question
that I want to draw your attention to and which has been of public knowledge in
the last decade.

Until you assure me never to go public with my message content, all I can let
you know for now is that I was a Major in the U.S. Army until the recent
dis-engagement of troops from Iraq as a result of the end of the war.It will
interest you to know I was one of the US army officers who were entrusted with
the responsibility of counting and moving the seized funds as reported in the
news stories contained in the links. I was one of the five officers questioned
by military authorities as also reported in the above news stories.
The war has officially ended and I have remained calm till this right moment to
share my personal involvement that led to the stashing away some of the cash,
just waiting to be moved out of Iraq to a trusted fellow for safe-keeping until
I come over to meet with you. I want to ship 3 cash-boxes to you as soon as
possible. But most importantly I rather duel more on the issue of trust,
honesty,reliability expected from you and your capability to handle it at your
end without compromising on confidentiality it deserve.The amount involved is
huge and will be disclosed in my subsequent mail only you are found to be worthy
of being a partner in the intended collaboration. Simply put,I have no
fraudulent intentions but that the essence of this message is strictly for our
mutual benefit and nothing more.
Surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you ? Not only surprised
but also skeptical ? Not to worry.Just ensure you visit the news links as
directed above and I do assure you that we both stand to gain enormously from
the expected collaboration in this uncommon transaction of this nature. I will
be vivid and very explicit in my next message to clear any doubt you may have in
your mind but before I do so I will appreciate your doing the following :
1. Confirm that all (or at least2 ) of the above international news links have
2. Confirm that you have understood that my intention is to send the funds to
you for mutual benefit.
3. Give a promise to let it remain a secret between us.
4. Provide me with your complete names,complete address,phone number(s),your age
Once again I plead that you share with no one this proposal on mutual
collaboration. I will send more details on the condition you comply strictly
with the above 1-4 and your acceptance on the need for high confidentiality.
