I loved the movie Three Kings, so I got a kick out of being asked to help smuggle Gaddafi’s money out of Libya.

Subject: WAITING FOR YOU RESPONSE
My name is Sgt. Chris Brand; I am an American soldier with Swiss background, serving in the military with the army’s 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of (35,000,000.00 US) Thirty Five million United States Dollars to you, as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here in Libya, this is no stolen money, and there is no danger involved.
Source of money:
Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Muammar Gaddafi palace in Al-Bayda-Libya during a rescue operation, and staff Sgt Kenneth Buff and I took part of this money and shared before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first agreed on it. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what, no compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hellhole of which a road side bomb killed my brother in-law last week.
Basically, since we are in government service and we are not allowed to have or keep discovered looted funds around us, we have decided to look for someone to help us relocate and keep this funds for us, that is why I have contacted you, so that you can keep it for us in your safe account or custody untill we complete our foreign service in Libya.
You will take 40%, 60% will be for me and my partner.This business is confidential, and it should not be discussed with anyone. There is no risk involved whatsoever as it is only me and my partner that knows the present location of the money.
My job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us. Can I trust you? To ensure confidentiality, when you receive this letter,kindly reply me via e-mail:signifying your interest including your phone and fax numbers for quick communication and also your physical locational address.
Sgt Chris Brand.
