    Dear Friend,

    Good day and compliments, i know this letter will definitely
    come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the
    time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will
    go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence.
    Please allow me to introduce myself.I am Capt. Brian Morgan, a US
    Marine Capt. serving in the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment
    which Patrols the Anbar province, Iraq.

    I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up
    courage to contact you. 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 hell hole. 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 have survived two suicide bomb attacks
    by Pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into
    consideration have prompted me to reach out for help. If it might
    be of interest to you then Endeavour to contact me and we would
    work out the necessary formalities but i pray that you are discreet
    about this mutually benefiting relationship.

    Contact me via my private box: brian_morgan221@mail.md so that I can
    furnish you with more details.

    Respectfully,
    Capt. Brian Morgan
    United States Marine Corps. IRAQ.

    The use of spelling and English as stilted as that points directly an education derived from British Colonial days. Anyone taking bets on Nigeria?
