I hope that this mail finds you in good health. Now I know this mail will
definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but please kindly take your
Time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will probably go
a long way to determine my future and continued existence. First of I let
me introduce myself. I am Capt. Mark J. Acton, assigned to 2nd Battalion,
Anbar Province in Iraq.
I am desperately in need of assistance. I am presently in Iraq and I found
your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your
assistance to evacuate the sum of $10,570,000 (Ten million Five Hundred
and Seventy Thousand USD) to the States or any safe country; as far as I
can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my
service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.
SOURCE OF MONEY:
Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels
with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of Saddam
Hussein's old Presidential Palaces during a rescue operation and it was
agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us. This
might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what, No
compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in
this hellhole. The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal
this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a German
contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys 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 contents of the package as he believes
that it belongs to an American who died in an air raid, before giving up
trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative.
I have now found a secured way of getting the package out of Iraq for you
to pick up. I do not know for how long I will remain here, as I have been
lucky to survive two suicide bomb attacks by Pure Divine intervention.
This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach
out for your help. If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to
contact me and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that
you are discreet about this mutually benefiting relationship.
For more details please contact me via my private box:
