Subject: Please Read Carefully(This Is Not An Hoax)

My name is John Adams; I am an American soldier 2nd Battalion, 3rd
Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division,
deployed to Iraq-Baghdad.
My reason for contacting you is that I managed to move funds belonging to
some Iraqis heads that ran away after we rescued the hostages. These
hostages were released by us as they were victims of intimidation and
violence and incarcerated under the blasphemy laws while awaiting sentence
and there are forced sex acts and killings by the Iraq terrorist ,as I
discovered. In their hideout, I found an underground with currencies. I
know that reading this, you may condemn my deeds but sincerely, I have
served in US Army in good faith, stealing nothing from my division neither
have I be involved in any illegal act.

I only manage to move the total amount of US$25 Million dollars in cash,
mostly 100 dollar bills. However, I want to move this money US$25 Million
to you (mostly 100 dollar bills), so that you may invest it for me and
keep my share for banking. I know you will be asking how did I got your
email, it is through my effort to search for a reputable person which my
heart is directing me to trust you since here is a war zone and no much
time. I want you to understand that I have seen money in Iraq even US
contractors have wasted lots of hard-earned money over here. You can go to
this web link to listen to the news:

The US$25 Million belong to me, I will take 70%. You will take 30%. No
strings attached, just help me move it out of Iraq, here is a war zone. I
plan on using diplomatic courier and shipping the money out in two large
silver boxes, using diplomatic immunity. The Boxes are deposited with the
firm for easy delivery so I will only present your details for delivery to

If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find
a good partner that I can trust and that will assist us. Can I trust you?
When you receive this letter, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your
interest including your most confidential telephone/fax numbers for quick
communication also your contact details.

This business is risk free. The box will be shipped out in 48hrs.
