> My name is (Staff Sgt) sgt robert green, I'm an American
> soldier serving in the military with the Army’s 3rd
> Infantry division. I have a very desperate need for
> assistance and have summed up courage to contact you.
> I found your contact particulars in an address journal and
> I’m seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of Eight
> Million United States Dollars (US$8M) to you in the United
> States as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe
> in your care until I complete my service here.
> SOURCE OF MONEY:
> Some money in various currencies were discovered in barrels
> at a farmhouse near Saddam’s old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq
> during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by Staff Sgt
> Kenneth Buff and I that some part of this money be shared
> between both of us before informing anybody about it since
> both of us saw the money first. This was quite an illegal
> thing to do but I tell you what! No compensation can make up
> for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole,
> of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb
> last time.
> The above figure was given to me as my share, and to
> conceal this kind of money became a problem for me but with
> the help of a British contact working here and with his
> office enjoying some immunity, I was able to get the package
> out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does
> not know the real content of the package as he believes that
> it belongs to a British/American Medical doctor who died in
> a raid here in Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to
> hand over the package to his family in united States.
> I have now found a very secured way of getting the package
> out of Iraq to you at home for you to pick up, and I will
> discuss this with you when I ‘m sure that you are willing
> to assist me and that the money will be well secured in your
> I want you to tell me how much you will take from this
> money for the assistance you will give to me. One passionate
> appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with
> anybody. Should you have reasons to reject this offer,
> please and please, I beg you to destroy this message as any
> leakage of this information will be too bad for the US
> soldiers here in Iraq.
> I do not know how long we will remain here, month of May
> was the deadliest month for us here. Totally, we lost 127
> men and I have survived two suicide bomb attacks and other
> forms of attack by the special grace of God. This and other
> reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out
> for help.
> I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately.
> Please contact me as soon as possible with my private E-mail
> address which is my only way of communication (E-Mail;
> firstname.lastname@example.org). May God bless you.
