Subject: Assistance Needed From Iraq
From: "SSgt James Clayton." <email@example.com>
I hope my email find you well. I am in need of your assistance. My
name is Sgt. Jams Clayton. I am an American soldier serving in the
military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, we have just been posted
out of Iraq and to return in a short while. My colleague and I need
your help to transfer out the sum of Twenty Five Million U.S Dollars
The money which is now in the custody of a Security Company is part of the
money which was discovered in various currencies and also concealed in
barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of
Saddam Hussein's old Presidential Palaces during a search operation and
was not declared. Right now I am in the Bagdad trying to sort out things
with the Security Company to ensure a smooth and unhindered transfer of
the money to you,this is no stolen money and there are no dangers
involved, therefore be assured that the transfer is safe and risk free,we
are doing this because no compensation can make up for the risks we have
taken with our lives in this hell hole.
My colleague and I need a good partner someone we can trust to actualize
this venture.But we are moving it through diplomatic means to your house
directly or a safe and secured location of your choice using a shipping
company as far as we can be assured that it will be safe in your care
until we complete our service here.But can we trust you? Once the funds
get to you, you take your 40% out and keep our own 60%. Your own part of
this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to. Our own
part is sending it to you.
If you are interested I will furnish you with more details,
Awaiting your urgent response.
SSgt. Jams Clayton
