"Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence. I got your contact from a directory on the Internet here in Afghanistan. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business and i pray at this time that, your e-mail contact address is still valid. I know you don't know me but i meant no harm sending you this note, just that I don't have anyone out there to talk to, as I lost my parents in a car Accident, when I was 11 years old, I was raise up by my adopted parents, but they died years ago, the relatives of my adopted Parents throw me out of the house saying that I was not their real daughter. I know you can handle this money for me, on till I come over to meet with you, we can also build friendship with this transaction. I lived in Oakland, Oregon, before joining the Force. You may be wondering why I choose to trust a delicate matter like this in the care of a stranger, but this is the best I can do in my present situation and I would have trusted this kind of project in the hands of my Husband who was my closest confident, but I lost him to cancer on 24th July, 2008 and my only brother has ruined his life with hard drugs, hence my decision to work with a neutral person if we can establish some trust between ourselves instead of confiding in my buddies back home so that this little secret can be preserved. Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Maj Gen. Tammy Smith, I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $6,500,000.00 (Six Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. SOURCE OF MONEY: I and some other Officers made some deal in oil business over there in Iraq before my exit to Afghanistan. The deal worth $75 Million United States Dollars and after we have all share the money I later realize $6,500,000.00 US DOLLARS which is my personal share of the deal, due to my status as a US Major General, I cannot be able to move this huge funds to my account in United States to avoid further interrogation or face any kind of probation by the U.S government and I packaged my own share in a briefcase and have sent it to the Red-Cross society, because there is no other way out to keep it with me here, so with the help of a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real content of the package, as I have deposited the consignment as a family treasure. Your acceptance to this would encourage me to send further information for us to proceed. Furthermore, If my offer is of no appealing to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. I believe that such opportunities only comes once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny. This chance won't pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. If you give me positive signal, I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. I send you this mail without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Do not betray my confidence. If you wish to proceed with this, please get back to me. Regards, Maj Gen. Tammy"
