Message N 1:
From: SGT JERRY BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org To: XXXX Sent: Thursday, April 4, 2019 Subject: READ CAREFULLY AND REPLY URGENTLY
My name is (Staff Sgt) Jerry Brown, I’m an American soldier serving in the military with the Army’s 3rd Infantry division Iraq but now redeployed to Afghanistan. I have a very desperate need for assistance and have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal and I’m seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of Eight Million United States Dollars (US$8M) to you in the United States 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 were discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near Saddam’s old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by Staff Sgt Kenneth Buff and I that some part of this money be shared between both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first. This does not sound right to do but I tell you what! No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole, of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last time.
The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me but with the help of a British contact working here and with his office enjoying 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 he believes that it belongs to a British/American Medical doctor who died in a raid in Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family in united States.
I have now found a very secured way of getting the package to you at home for you to pick up, and I will discuss this with you when I ‘m sure that you are willing to assist me and that the money will be well secured in your hands. I feel this is the right time to send this money home
I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give to me. 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, I beg you to destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for the US soldiers here.
I do not know how long we will remain in this war, as each day looks horrifying with deadly operation and battle against die hard militants and terrorists. Totally, we lost well over 4,500 men so far and I have survived two suicide bomb attacks and other forms of attack by the special grace of God. This and other reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help.
I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately. Please contact me as soon as possible via email which is my only way of
communication. May God bless you
Sgt Jerry Brown
Message N 2:
From: Sgt Jerry Brown email@example.com To: XXXX Date: Mon, 8 Apr 2019 Subject: PLEASE PROVIDE CONTACT DETAILS
Hello my friend,
Thank you so much for your response to my email and your wiliness to help me receive my package. I apologize for the late response to your email just that the situations of things here is still so tensed and we need your prayers to move on. Here is my private email address, please always reach me here.
I need you to confirm your percentage to me in your next mail or how much you will take for your assistance and for the charity. I will settle for 20% of the total sum (US$1.6 million) for your assistance and confidentiality between us; I’m not greedy. I packaged the boxes believing I was leaving here with the Red Cross official before I was certified fit by our doctor to remain here yet.
I need you to get the consignment and keep in your custody pending my relief of duty to come home. Please understand that this transaction is a gilt-edge transaction. So you don’t have anything to be scared of. I have made all the necessary arrangement on how the boxes will be delivered to you at the provided delivery address since I’m no longer coming with diplomatic flight. All I want from you is the maximum cooperation and prayers for us out here.
I will redirect the Diplomat to deliver the boxes to you *(!) as he will be leaving for the States and the consignment will not be subject to rigorous screening because of his diplomatic immunity. I will provide you with the name of the diplomat in charge of delivery and I will also give him your contact information that you will provide, for him to reach you upon his arrival.
Therefore, I need you to send your contact details such as:
CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER
to enable him contact you upon his arrival to the states and also I can know how to position myself to make sure that this deal is brought to a logical conclusion without hitch.
CONFIDENTIALITY: Note that the Diplomat is not aware of the content of the box. Please do not tell him that the boxes contain money. The boxes are tagged “Personal Effects” so just let him know they are personal effects that belong to you. My confidence and trust in you should not be betrayed. I have put a lot on the line here and God shall see us through. I have to get back to my duty now. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in advance. God bless you and have a wonderful day.
SGT Jerry Brown
