Hello Dear friend ,
I am sorry if content of this message meets you as a surprise. I am a soldier US soldier working with the United Nations peace keeping troop in Afghanistan, on war against terrorism. There are many reasons to which makes me contact you and I want you to lend me your trust as I am lending you mine also. Time will not allow me to write in details now, but I shall explain more later. I have in my possession the sum of $4.5 million USD Which I made here in Afghanistan. I deposited this money with a Red Cross agent, but things are no longer comfortable with me as the deposit is with the Red Cross agent and I want the fund moved out from this place. I want you to stand as my beneficiary and receive the fund and keep it safe so that as soon as am through with my mission here in Afghanistan, you will assist me to invest it in a good profitable venture, I am willing to offer you 20% of the total money for your assistance after you have receive the money. Please reply back to me if you are willing to work with me so that I can send you further information about the movement of the fund. I am in a hurry writing now, so I cannot give all the details now. Your urgent reply is needed if you are willing to assist me on this process.

This is confidential and I want you to see it just as I am saying it and nothing risky is attached.

Dear,
Thanks for your mail. My immediate priority is to make sure that this consignment box is removed from here and secured by a trustworthy fellow because I am in a tight situation here. This is why I need your help for this. I am an active service woman and I want this to be done confidentially to protect me. I would like you to assist me to receive this funds and keep it safe and secure until it can be invested in your country. I want to also let you know that the most important thing is to first of all bring out this funds from danger position and keep it safe. I am in a very tight situation and needs your confidential assistance.

The success of this transaction will depend on our total mutual trust. I want everything to be clear to you right now but you have to read carefully. The deal is all about the money I made here, and I have it kept safely in a box and stored in an abandoned mine in Kabul Due to the United Nation policy on Afghanistan, there is a plan to move some troops out of Afghanistan so I will be among the people that will be moving out. I cannot take this money to the United States because since they know me as military personnel, they will want to know how I come about it. Due to this, I have made an arrangement for a Red Cross diplomat agent to move this fund. The question is who will be in charge of the money in my absence?.
This is exactly why I need your help. I want to guarantee you that you will not stand any risk in this as I have mapped out the strategy to have this box moved out of here safely Through Diplomatic means.
As I earlier said, you have to keep everything confidential till you receive the fund as a consignment. You should also indicate which country you would like the funds to be sent to.
Finally, I want you to stand as the beneficiary and receive the fund and keep it safe so that as soon as I come to your country, you will assist me to invest it in a good profitable venture, I am willing to give you 20% of the total money for the assistance after you have receive the money. 20% for you is a good deal. Please accept it.

I believe I can trust you. Where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities, which are secured so no body can monitor our emails, then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through email, because our calls might be monitored, I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with.

Please if you can handle it, let me know so that I will furnish you on the way forward.

Please send your information so that I will furnish you on the modality to follow.
