Greetings, I know you will be surprised to get my email. Apart from being surprised you may be hesitant to reply based on what is happening in the world of the internet. One has to be very careful due to the amount of scammers that are out there looking to take advantage of innocent citizens. However, I am not one of these people. My name is Capt. Rivera. and I was a member of the US ARMY medical team deployed to Iraq and then later transferred to Afghanistan. I am looking for a trust worthy individual who will assist me in receiving some funds for me. I am requesting this individual to hold onto the cash until I arrive safely back to retrieve them. As soon as I hear back I will work out the finer details. Best Regards Capt. Rivera OTjehrheeT@angel.ocn.ne.jp
