It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive
because you do not know me,Please forgive this unusual manner to
contact you, but this particular letter/email is of exceptional and
very private nature, as by virtue of my vantage position as the US
Army in Iraq . I have a lucrative business proposal  of mutual
interest to share with you.There is no way for me to know whether you
will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write and reach out
to you, TRUSTING that you will give this proposal a positive
consideration.May almighty God be with you. I got your contact through
my search in the internet of your country housing registration chamber
and Please,  keep this proposal to yourself alone.
My name is Lt. Col. Jim Bradford, a native of Lynchburg , Tenn. ,
commander of the 1st Battalion 63rd Armor Regiment, which recently
shifted to patrolling the countryside west of Baghdad-Iraq. I speak
English language and i have a special Language Translation machine
which i am using to translate my message to German  and this is
because of the privacy of  this proposal which I believe that will
benefit both us.On April 23 and 26 of this year, in an area of Baghdad
secured by  members of the US 3rd Infantry Division and Battalion 63rd
Armor  Regiment, Foreign Currency worth millions has been found in a
Baghdad neighborhood. We know that this large amount of money was kept
by some Iraqi Fleeing regime leaders. My Troops found $100 million and
90 million euros in 31 containers. The money has been flown out of the
country to a "secure location" for counting purposes and will
eventually be returned to Iraq to help rebuild the country and the
Funds will remain secure until a stable government is established in
Iraq and will ultimately be returned to the Iraqis to assist in the
re-building of their nation.

As the commander of the 1st Battalion 63rd Armor Regiment, I kept one
container worth US$35.5 million for me and my assistance for
investment. We need you as our foreign partner to receive these funds
on our behalf. It is oil money and legal, We have made arrangement
with a Diplomat that will move the container out of Iraq as Family
Treasures to their offshore office in Europe and we can as well use
the Bank to Bank transfer method. It all depends on the option you
think is safe for both of us. The most important thing is; "TRUST"
Once the funds gets to you. Everything concerning this transaction
shall be LEGALLY done without hitch because of my High profile in the
US Army. Please do not disclose this business to anybody as to protect
my duty with the US army; we must keep a low profile at all times.
More details regarding this transaction will be made available to you
as soon as your interest is shown.I need your urgent response if you
are interested in assisting us to receive the container because we
will be ending our mission in Iraq
soon (going back home) because we have already been pulled out of some
major cities but now in our Military base. For more on this
transaction click on these links:-
Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning
this issue, as i hope that you are a sincere, honest and matured
person and above all TRUSTWORTHY. Once the funds have been
successfully transferred into your account, we shall share it in a
ratio of 35% for you, 60% for me and my partner and the reminder 5%
will be use as part of our obligation to support Charity Organization
in any country of our choice. You are going to carried out this
mission which I proposed to make sure that the money gets to the
Charity Organization. It is important to let you know that my family
always support Charitable Organization and it is a personal affair.
I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below :
{} and finally after that I shall furnish
you with more information about this operation. I am counting on your
