Greetings to you. I am a United States soldier in Afghanistan. There is
something very important which I want to share with you in this email and I
hope you will understand. I have a safe deposit box containing 30 bars of
gold worth over $7,000,000.00 which I deposited with a private safe
deposit company . My plan is that when I complete my military foreign
mission, I will retrieve the safe deposit box containing the 30 bars of
gold worth over $7,000,000.00 from the private safe deposit company, bring
the gold bars to your country where I will sell the gold bars and use the
money for investment because I plan to settle in your country.

I bought the 30 bars of gold when I found an opportunity to negotiate the
sale and supply of medical equipment worth millions of United State dollars
between a company in Accra, Republic of Ghana and a company in Texas,
United States last year. After the deal was done, I was paid me a
commission which I used to buy the gold bars from a local miner in Accra,
Republic of Ghana. After I bought the gold bars, I packaged the gold bars
in a safe deposit box , transported the 30 bars of gold to a private safe
deposit company where I deposited the 30 bars of gold with them for safe
keeping until I will come to retrieve the safe deposit box.

Yesterday the director of operations of the the private safe deposit
company located in Accra, Republic of Ghana where the 30 bars of gold is
deposited sent an email to me and informed me that their company is going
into liquidation as such they will be closing for business and requires
their clients who has a deposit contract with them to come and retrieve
their deposits from their vault within 21 days from the date of notice.
According to the director of operations, if any client fails to retrieve
his or her deposit from the vault within a stipulated time of 21 days, such
deposited will be declared unclaimed, confiscated and transferred to the
treasury of the Government. If this is allowed to happen, the client might
lose the deposit or be charged a penalty.

Right now, I cannot travel to Accra, Republic of Ghana to retrieve the safe
deposit box containing the 30 bars of gold from the private safe deposit
company because I am in Afghanistan where I am engaged in combat
operation. I will not be permitted by the United States department of
army to abandon my mission in Afghanistan and travel to any where until my
mission here is completed.

I have sent an email to the director of operations of the company and
informed him that I cannot travel within 21 days to retrieve the safe
deposit box from their vault. This morning, I received an email from the
director of operations of the company in which he informed me that they can
release and transport the 30 gold bars to me.

My problem now is that I am in a combat zone in Afghanistan where we are
engaged in combat operation against Taliban insurgents and other terrorist
groups as such it is not safe for me to ask the private safe deposit
company located in Accra, Republic of Ghana to deliver the 30 gold bars to
me in Afghanistan so that when I complete my mission, I will bring the gold
bars to your country myself.

I want you to ask you to help me receive the 30 bars of gold and keep it
safe for me until I complete my mission in Afghanistan and come to meet you
in your country. When I complete my mission in Afghanistan, I will come to
meet you in your country so that I will sell the gold bars there while you
work with me to invest the money in your country. I will compensate you
for your help.

If you will help me, I will instruct the company to release and transport
the 30 bars of gold to you at your address in your country. If you will
help me please give me your full name, house address and mobile number.

I am waiting for your response. Take care and have a good day.
