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. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Private Graham ‘T’ Thurston, a British soldier in 5 Platoon, B Company serving in the 1st Battalion the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (1 PWRR) Operating in Helmand Province here in Afghanistan.
I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you as I found your contact particulars in an address journal hence i contact you. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of Nine Million US Dollars ($9 Million USD) to any safe country, as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here by the special grace of God.
This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved. SOURCE OF MONEY: Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed under ground with kilograms of cocaine at a location near one of the Taliban hideout during a rescue operation and it was agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us hence the drugs where destroying it. This might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hellhole. The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working with the Red Cross 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 contents of the package as he believes that it belongs to an British who died on a road bomb blast, who before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative. I have now found a secured way of getting the package out of Afghanistan for you to pick up. I do not know for how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive 2 suicide bomb attacks by Pure Divine intervention.
This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach out for help. If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to contact me and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet
about this mutually benefiting relationship.
Private Graham T. Thurston
See, in civilized cultures, we write fiction and label it fiction.
Then we sell it, and call it "honest money."
