Dear Friend,

I saw your email from searching Engine and I decided to contact you
urgent for this great opportunity between me and you, permit me to
introduce myself to you, I am a captain with the United Nations troop
Kabul Afghanistan, on war against terrorism. Based on the United
States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from
Afghanistan come next year, I have been deployed to come and work in
your state on military base soonest. Our mission is to help beef up
terrorist targeted states, mostly on the war against terrorism and I
will need a house for myself & that is why I contacted you.

On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession
the sum of US$45.5Million Which I got from crude oil deal here in
Afghanistan. I deposited this money with a Red Cross agent informing
him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money. And It
is under my power to approve whoever that comes forth for this
consignment. I want to invest the money in your state as soon as I am
deployed into your state for a good business, anyway you will advice
me on that since I am not a business person. so I need someone I could
trust. If you accepted I will be smuggle to transfer the money to your
state where you will be the beneficiary. I am a uniformed person and I
cannot be parading such an amount, so I need to present someone to
stand as the recipient. I am an American and an intelligence officer
and for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the
money through diplomatic courier service. I just need your acceptance
and all is done.

Please if you are interested in this transaction I will give to you
the complete details that you need for us to carry out this
transaction successfully, I decided to find someone that is for real
and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured web site, where
I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you.
Where we are now we can only communicate through our military
communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our
emails, then I can explain in details to you will only reach you
through email, because our calls might be monitored but have to be
sure whom I am dealing with.

If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I
can call you for further Inquiry when I am out of our military network
am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do
not reply to this email and please delete this message, if not
response after 3days I will then search for someone else.

I wait for your contact details so we can go on. I will give to you
40% of the sum and 60% is for me. I hope I am been fair on this deal.

Get back to me with your full information:



Capt. Patrick Williams
Kabul Afghanistan.
