Subject: CAN I TRUST YOU MY DEAR!!!
I want to trust you with this confidential proposal. Before I continue, let me introduce myself to you, I am Col. Thomas Collins the commander of the Special N.A.T.O coalition force with the United Nation troops in Afghanistan, on war against terrorism. I was working with General Stanley McChrystal, the former commander of U.S and NATO forces in Afghanistan before he was replaced last June by another General David Petraeus. I am serving currently in a Taliban territory; a remote Village in Bamyan province to the bustling capital Kabul (CBC’s Doc Zone).
Because of series of killing of England/United States troops in Afghanistan especially the shot down of UN helicopter that killed 30 American soldiers and 12 England Soldiers on the 5th of August 2013 and the five American soldiers who were killed by a bomb in Afghanistan on Thursday last week. After this series of killing I and my colleague decided to share the money we recovered on our raids on terrorist’s camp in Afghanistan. I have now in my possession the sum of $16M (Sixteen million US Dollars).
I have carefully packaged the money in a box, I have made contact with a friend who is working with the UNITED NATIONS RED CROSS here in Kabul. He will assist me move the consignment out of the trouble area down to your country, which is the only safer means of moving it out of this hell hole, he will deposit it with the United Nations Red Cross as a diplomatic luggage as I have told him that the luggage belongs to one of our soldier that died during the attack but before giving up he told me to make sure the luggage get to his family. He will deposit the consignment for safe keep and to make contacts for its proper use.
So I need someone I can work with on trust and that is why I contacted you. So if you accept, I will put you forward as the beneficiary/owner of the funds and then the box shall be deposited on your name as the beneficiary and the Red Cross Agent will transfer the box to you anywhere in your city. I just need your acceptance and all is done. I have 100% assurance that you will surely receive the box without any hitch through United Nations, every arrangement will be made to proceed to your country.
Once I confirm your interest to my proposal, and your positive reply I will proceed with the arrangement to move the consignment out of the trouble area and register your name as the beneficiary then move the consignment to your country Red Cross office. I am willing to give you 30% of the total sum when the money is delivered to you. I wait for your response so we can proceed immediately. In less than 7days the money should be in your safe custody.
The only telephone access we have here is radio message which is for our general use and is being monitored, therefore all communication will be via email till we finish our assignment. Please keep it to your self even if you are not interested, thank God for President Barrack Obama whose keen interest is to call us back home soon.

What I need from you is your assistance to move this consignment out of this hell then after you must have received it I will come over to meet with you. I got your email through your country yellow page email directory and my conscience and mind accepted to work with you after reading your profile
I am sending you my official Military ID card and some of my personal pictures but you must guarantee me that; they will be safe with you because its not advisable for me to send my official ID Card and pictures over the internet to avoid imposters hacking it and use them for illegality. it is for your perusal and please do not for any reason to disclose it to any person no matter the
circumstance. I also include the picture we took with the total money before it was shared. PLEASE KEEP ALL THE PICTURES SAFE AND SECURED. I AM BEGGING YOU IN THE NAME OF GOD.
Meanwhile I want to let you know that we need commitment from all sides to make this transaction succeed as well as confidentiality because of my military engagement here in Afghanistan, and we must keep all communications between us secret as you know we are not allowed to handle cash while on combat mission abroad, this is to avoid us taking advantage of citizen of the country of mission, and any disobedience on this directives amounts to court marshal and imprisonment, therefore I want you to handle this transaction with serenity, honesty and confidentiality. I have also decided to offer you 30% of the total fund for your assistance and efforts towards the realization of this great opportunity.
I have carefully packaged my share in a box and did not leave
a dime within my reach to avoid traces. Like I told you on the first email, I will discuss with my air force friend that works with the UNITED NATIONS Red Cross to know when he would be traveling with the consignment. Please be informed that he must not know the real content of the consignment as I have already told him that it is a family treasure that belongs to one of the doctors that died on raid here but before giving up he pleaded me to make sure that the consignment gets to his family. Both the air force friend (Red Cross Member) and the UNITED NATIONS where he will make the deposit most not know the real content of the consignment to avoid losing the consignment.
If you know that you will work with us in one accord, then you are to send me your full names, home and office addresses including your private and office telephone numbers. You are to include your age, occupation and marital status and also your means of identification
