My name is Sgt. John Samuel US ARMY serving the World and my
country in the most honorable way i know i can, in IRAQ right now, in
a nutshell, I am a American soldier serving in the Military with the
Army 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance,
i found your contact particulars during my email search and picked up
to contact you for your assistance.
Some money in various currencies were discovered in a room at a farm
house near one of Saddam's old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue
operation, i happened to be one of the soldiers that lead that
operation that day, so it was agreed by Brigadia General Edward
Ballanco the head of our batallion that some part of this money will
be shared among 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, my brother in-law was killed
by a road side bomb just few months ago, and i cannot count how many
times GOD has saved my life down here. I would like you to read the
below article so you can confirm what i am saying.
Now i found a very reliable way of sending a trunk mettallic box
containing the amount of United States Dollars worth Twelve Million
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars(US$ 12,500 Million) as you must agree
with me it has been hell on earth trying to keep this money safe from
peoples eyes for all these while and with this opportunity all i need
is just someone capable I can trust 100% i can send the box to.
So if you can assure me of your honesty i will go ahead and send the
box to you for safe keeping till i am back home and i will gladly give
you 50% of the money.
If this okay with you please get back to me with the following so i
can get the box accross to you.
1. Your full name
2. Contact address
3. Telephone number.
Waiting to hear from you.
Yours in Service.
Sgt. John Samuel
