    > Hello,
    >
    >
    > I am Colonel Christopher John, a British soldier attached to the Coalition force in Afghanistan ; I am the Commanding Officer Commando Logistic Regiment Royal Marines. What I am about to share with you is very confidential. We intercepted a suspected Taliban group in Lashkar Gah in Helmand Province with some cargoes. The gun battle that ensured led to the death of some while others abandoned their cargo and took to their heals.
    >
    > On a closer examination of the cargos a special consignment containing US$10 Million Dollars in cash was discovered by one of my special agents who took me into confidence. I had considered his prayers for the use of this money for charity and the options available for me as the commander of this regiment. In the heat of the moment, such humane decisions cannot easily be taken hence I have decided to secure this money outside of here and with a distant fellow until I shall have the privilege to be relived of my duty. Therefore, I solicit your assistance to help me receive this money and secure this money in an investment until we are through with our service here then I can come to your country. I have perfected arrangements to ship this money out in one large metallic Boxes to you using Diplomatic courier.
    >
    > We are willing to give you 30% while you will keep the remaining in an investment for us until after our assignment here. Can I trust you? If you are interested send to me via this email your confidential Telephone/fax numbers, your contact details for quick communication. This exchange is 100% risk free. KINDLY DIRECT YOUR REPLY TO MY PRIVATE MAIL BOX : christopjohn@britain.com
