I am sorry to encroach into your privacy in this manner, I found your
name listed in the Trade Center Chambers of Commerce directory here in
Iraq, I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business. I
only pray this time that your address is still valid. I want to
solicit your attention to receive money on my behalf.

I am Capt. John Anthony, an officer in the US Army, i am one of the
U.S. Army deployed to Iraq in the beginning of the war in 2003, and
also a West Point Graduate presently serving in the Military with the
82nd Air Borne Division Peace keeping force in Baghdad, Iraq. I am on
the move to Afghanistan from Iraq as the last batch just left, and i
really need your help in assisting me with the safe keeping of two
military trunk boxes which has just arrived the USA from Iraq. I hope
you can be trusted?

Though, I would like to hold back certain information for security
reasons for now until you have found time to visit the BBC website
news below to enable you have insight regarding what I intend to share
with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest in one
way or the other. Here is a BBC news listing that confirms what I want
to share with you

Here is also BBC news listing that confirms what I want to share with
you if you can be trusted, I
will explain further when i get a response from you.Get back to me
having visited the above websites to enable us discuss in a more vivid
manner to the best of your understanding? I must say that I'm very
uncomfortable sending this message to you without knowing truly if you
would misconstrue the importance and decide to go public.

In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this
letter is strictly for mutual benefit of you and I and nothing more. I
will be more vivid and coherent in my next email in this regards.
Meanwhile, could you send me a mail confirming you have visited the

response now that we are leaving Iraq to Afghanistan.

Yours faithfully,

Best regards.

How are you doing today?? Thank you for your prompt response to my
request, I also apologize for the slight delay in getting back to you.
I'm contacting you with my secured email as I do not want any form of
compromise and I know it's difficult to Trust people this days
especially when it has to do with money. I want you to know that this
is absolutely risk free and assure you that this will not in any way put you
or your family in any form of danger. it's not easy for me but i have got no
choice because it's very important to me that my Boxes are safe besides
we all have to Trust someone someday and my instincts tells me that we
would be great partners. I got your email from a secured email database.
I would want you to carefully go through this mail and understand it.
Like i explained earlier, Some money in various currencies was discovered
and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location
near one of Saddam Husein's old Presidential Palaces in Tikrit Iraq, during a
rescue operation. It was agreed by all parties present that the money be shared
among us. Although most of this fund were sent back to the Iraqi Government as
at that time. This might appear a little illegal but I tell you what the whole
transaction is straight and simple, no compensation can make up for the risks
we have taken with our lives in that hell hole.

I arranged for the Boxes to be moved as part of UN Facilities that was
to be returned to the military base in the United States as our
mission there was over. But unfortunately there was a diversion of
some of the facilities to the United kingdom and the boxes were among
the quota diverted to the UK. I had to make contact with a good friend
of mine whose primary assignment is to inspect the evacuation of UN
Properties out of Iraq. He is not from the state and most importantly
he has no idea of the content in the Boxes i informed him to help me
see to it that the Boxes are secured with a secured Delivery Company
while i make contact with a friend to help me receive the Boxes as it
contains my personal effect, These he has done and has given me the
details to the Delivery Company.

I'm presently camping in Kuwait we are under close surveillance so
it's impossible for me to make international transaction as it was
discovered that some of our colleagues have been selling vital
information's out to terrorist for money and in this regards it is
forbidden for anyone to make International monetary transaction's.
This is very serious with no jokes and I'm not here to waste neither
of our time this is for real and for it to be completed you have to
see to it that the shipping fee of the Boxes from the United kingdom
to your Address is handled from your side and if such amount of money
is traced to my account in the United States, I shall be investigated.
And for this reason i need you to assist me by seeing to it that the
Boxes leaves the Delivery Company, And you keep it safe pending when i
return and we will share it OR you take out your percentage which
would be 30% and keep mine safe for me till I'm done here. The total
amount is 10 million US Dollars. I want to assure you that this
transaction is completely risk free all we have to do is keep a low
profile as soon as you receive the Boxes.

What i need you to do now as a matter of urgency is to send the
following details

1. Your Full Names
2. A copy of your Driver's License or any ID'S
3. Your direct contact details (residential/official addresses where
you can receive the boxes without hitch)
4. Your Direct Phone Number

As soon as i receive your details i would verify the authenticity and
then give you the Box Details so you can have the Boxes leave the
Delivery Company. Most importantly the Boxes are locked with special
codes and no one can unlock them except i give out the codes This
transaction is simple and straight. A copy of My ID has been attached
with this mail also a picture of top officials counting the money that was
returned to the Iraqi government.

Yours Truly Friend

Capt John Anthony


How are you doing today?? It's of utter most importance that we are
building this whole Transaction on Trust like i explained in my first
mail i and a colleague of mine tried sending out 12 Tablets of Raw
Gold Bar to the United States when we were still out there in Iraq,
Through almost the same medium. As soon as the Gold got to the United
States our guy stopped communicating with us, He said he had to make
an Urgent trip and would communicate with us when he returns. And that
was the last we heard from him.

I have carefully gone through the Details you sent to me earlier and i
want to believe that you would keep to our Agreements. As soon as you
receive the Boxes i would update you with the combination's to unlock
them you are to take out your share and keep mine pending when my
mission here would be over, also I need you to send copy of your
driver's licence or licence number or any of your identification
number to me. I also want to assure and reassure you again that this
will not put you in any form of trouble.

Read, contact him and forward your receiving address to him for immediate
delivery down to your house, and also Delivery Company so as to
facilitate the Immediate processing and Shipping of our Boxes to you.

Your are to contact the following contact details;

Contact Person: Mr. Mark Powell
Email Address: [email protected]
Tell Number: +447087694856

Remember We must always keep a low profile at all times to avoid
unnecessary suspicions. I want to thank you very much for your help i
feel so very honored and i promise you would never regret this little

Yours faithfully,

Best regards.
Capt Anthony John
