    Hello Dear,

    I am a US military personal currently stationed in Iraq. I have 3 boxes which contains high price valuables. I would like to ship these boxes to you for safe keeping until my tour ends in Iraq. I know we have never met each other but it will be best for me to ship these boxes out of Iraq before i loose out. More information about the content of the box would be given to you upon your response/request.

    Sincerely,
    MLW

    Although the funds in question have been of public knowledge long before now but what remains secret to public is the identity of those officers that were involved in counting and protection of the recovered funds by US army. It will interest you to know that I am one of the US army officers who were entrusted with the responsibility of counting and moving the seized funds reported in the news stories. I was one of the five officers questioned by military authorities as also reported in the above news story. All I can say for now When that I am a Major in the US Army. When we left Iraq after the end of war, I sought out different ways and reason to leave from Afghanistan to Iraq, until the most recently when American sold were sent back to Iraq.I will only give further details about our intended partnership when you assure me never to go public with message content. I will like to share more information about my personal involvement that led to my keeping aside a big stash of cash. fellow who can keep a secret and be sincere I want to ship 3 boxes containing huge sum of cash over ($ 10m) to you through a trusted security company.

Simply put, I have no fraudulent intentions towards you, the essence of this message is strictly for our mutual benefit and nothing more.I do assure you that we both stand to gain enormously from an uncommon transaction of this nature.
