Hope all is well?

Greetings from the caves of war. My name is Sgt Jamie Hovis I am an
American soldier, serving in the military with the army’s 3rd infantry
division based in Iraq Baghdad(now redeployed to Afganistan)
With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to
contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am
seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of ( $ 12 Million U.S.
Dollars ) Twelve Million United State Dollars to United States soil, as
far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I
complete my service here.

Source Of Money:

Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse
near one of Saddam’s old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation,
this money has been kept somewhere outside Baghdad for some time but with
the proposed troop in increase by president Barrack Obama, to end the
suicide bombing and make peace with Iraq militant and terrorist ,we are
afraid that the money may be discovered hence we want to move this money
to you for safekeeping pending the completion of our assignment

No Compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in
this hell hole. I have to let you know that everything on earth is a risk.
I pledged when I was joining the military to defend the United States of
America and her territories even if i have to die which is exactly what we
here for. Please
note that this transaction is 100% real.

All I require is your honest; cooperation and Sincerity to enable us see
this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law as
it is a 100% risk free venture.

Kindly indicate your interest in assisting a fellow American . I will like
you to send to me your full contact details,

Your full names——————
Address, —————–
Contact telephone———-

For my record so that I can know how to position myself to make sure this
deal is brought to a logical conclusion with out any hitch

One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter
with anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and
please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too
bad for us soldier here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain in

I need you to confirm to me your percentage or how much you will take for
your assistance and for the charity in your next mail to me, which should
be as soon as you get this mail. I will settle for 20% – $2.4million; I’m
not greedy.

I honestly want this matter to be resolved asap, please contact me as soon
as possible with my private email address which is my only way of
communication .

God Bless You And Your Family
Sgt Jamie Hovis
