Hello My Dear

My name is (staff Sgt.) Gerald Hendricks; i am 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 am seeking your kind
Assistance to move the sum of eight million United States dollars (us$8,000,000) to you
In 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 one of 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 contents of the package, and 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 state.

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 am sure that you are willing To assist me and that my money will be well secured in your hand. 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 destroy this message as any Leakage of this information will be too bad for the u.s. soldier's here in Iraq. I do Not know how long we will remain here; month of May was the deadliest month for us out Here. Totally, we lost 127 men and i have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide Bomb attacks 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

May god bless you and your family

Sgt. Gerald Hendricks.

Thank you for your nice email to me, and also your word of
encouragement, I realy do apreciate it. I am not ignorant about the
existence of scams that are currently going on in the web these days. We
are living in a world where sincerity and trust has been throne into the
trash following the activities of some unscrupulous elements of our age
whose motive is to rip off their unsuspecting victims. But this is not
to say that there are no longer honest people in the world that one can
work with. All over the world, people do business transactions on daily
basis even without their having to come together physically. Therefore,
although you do not know me from Adam, you will agree with me that
relationship between any two business partners begins with a step and
when it is properly nurtured it will translate into full scale that will
even outlive the people concerned provided there is trust.

I am proposing to you has nothing to do with scam. It is an opportunity
that presented itself and as human beings it is only natural for us to
seize such opportunity and turn our financial world around for better.
What I need from your now is your trust and cooperation with the
diplomat. Also before I hand over the package (money) to the diplomat to
deliver to you, we have to build trust between ourself. In this case I
will appreciate it if you will send to me in your next response any kind
of identication of your self, so that at least I know whom I am dealing

With the help of a British contact working here and with his
office enjoying some immunity, I will be able to get the package out of
Iraq to you in your country.

Haven said all this I will like to
intimate you on how we are going to execute this transaction.I would
want your full names, contact address and telephone, this I will give to
the diplomat who will deliver the package to your designated house
address in your country. I hope you do understand. The amount that I
will be sending to you is $5 million in cash. The cash will be carefully
packaged as your personal effect and handed over to him.

Please note
that all it takes to receive the goods is your strict compliance with
the stipulated instructions and guidelines. I trust and believe so much
in you concerning the successful conclusion of this transaction as a
fellow Soldier and anything you are doing for me should be seen as a
demonstration of your love for the noble army profession. You should be
very expectant and attentive to the Diplomat when he calls you for
direction upon his arrival to your country.

The US$5M will be handed
over to them and every other money on me will be used to offset the
expenses as it is strictly prohibited for us to hold any money. I have
so much trust and confidence in you and I hope you will be faithful
enough to keep my share as promised till my return.

Note that the Diplomat is not aware of the content
of the box. Please do not tell him that the boxes contain money. Just
let him know they are personal effects that belong to you. My confidence
and trust in you should not be betrayed. I have put a lot on the line
here and God shall see us through. I have to get back to my duty

Attached are pictures of part of my battalion when the money was
discovered and me being decorated when I was promoted just before the
war. Please always keep me posted on every development. We are not
allowed to move alone to make calls outside the base and it will be very
risky for me to speak with you on phone otherwise I would have called
you. Hope to hear from you after tomorrow's parade before the primary
duty routine.


Sgt. Gerald Hendricks.
