Subject: Compliment of the season.
I assure you that you and i stand to gain enormously from this
deal if we both receive the cooperation desired for the success of a
transaction of this nature.
As i stated in my previous email my name is Major Erica Wells, a
citizen of the United States and was born in Manhattan in 1976. As a
young girl i was a curious child. I lived in fantasy world half the
time and the other half i lived in a real fantasy world, the noisy
streets of the upper west side Manhattan, NYC. After obtaining my
qualification as a nurse i decided to enlist into the army in 1998. I
am a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team and I am a qualified
nurse by training. I have been in Iraq since the beginning of the war.
In the few years i have been here working in the medical team, i have
been a witness to a lot of sad, horrific, mean and wicked action
perpetuated by terrorist, religious bigots and militants. I am working
on a book that would detail my experience when i eventually retire. I
have attached some of my most recent pictures
I have received several postings while here in Iraq. This is my third
posting to Iraq. I am in the final year of my most recent posting. It
is the most recent posting that has landed me a good fortune which i
intend to share with you. After about 2months in the new house i was
allocated, i noticed that there was a hidden door in the wardrobe that
leads to an underground cellar. What i discovered in the underground
cellar was quite revealing. I discovered three containers stashed with
United States dollars. Ever since this discovery i have been unable to
concentrate as i have been confused on the exact action to take. I
have informed no one. I do not intend to inform the authority.
I intend to help myself. I have been weighing a lot of options on how
best to make these funds mine without the knowledge of the authority.
As you must be aware the American troops in Iraq have served with
distinction. There is strict observance to rules and ordinance. There
is also a systematic probing and investigation of all troops to make
sure that there are no unlawful activities. We are trained to report
any suspicious movement involving anybody that might tarnish the image
of America. Because of this singular fact it has been very difficult
for me to neither tell any one nor spend a dime out of the money.
I have decided to act after two months because i just found out that i
might soon be re-deployed from my present location. If this happens
without me taking action on the money, I will everĀ live to regret my
inaction as it is an opportunity for me to beĀ financially solvent for
ever. I need your help in order to make this happen.
I have a patient who is a diplomat. I have known him for over a year
andĀ we are fond of each other. I have had extensive discussions with
him on helping me transport some goods abroad. He has agreed in
principle to help me. The reason I' ve decided to use a diplomat is
because they have immunity. Whatever they carry or transport across
countries are covered by diplomatic immunity. It cannot be searched or
opened by anybody be it customs, police or secret service. The goods
are often covered with diplomatic seal. The goods will get to its
destination without problems. Please be informed that I will not tell
the diplomat the real content of the containers. The diplomat will
deliver the containers to you.
Using the diplomat make this process completely risk free. The worst
scenario is that the diplomat will be sent back with the baggage if
there is any suspicion. He cannot be arrested, the goods cannot be
impounded. He will merely be returned to the country he is coming
This is where you come in. Your duties or responsibility will be to
receive the containers which contain the money from the diplomat. You
are to keep it safe until I return to the States were we will discuss
the modalities for sharing and engage in partnership while investing.
I need someone i can trust, someone i can rely on. Someone who will
be truthful, frank and honest. Someone who will agree to assist me and
be involved throughout the period the process will last. Someone I can
count on to act as a genuine and an interested party. I want you to go
through this email careful and get back to me. We can begin to discuss
further details once I hear from you.
For utmost confidentiality i will appreciate that all our
communication are done through email. It will be dangerous to
communicate through the telephone as phones are often wired or tapped,
calls are often traced or intercepted. This is one of the security
precautions that we must take.
If you are interested in been part of this process,please get back to me
