I'm well used to receiving emails from bankers in Nigeria who have discovered millions in unnacounted cash hidden away, of which i will get a huge chunk for helping them spirit it away. I suppose the scammers have decided to get with the times, hence this email which I received this morning: Hello, How are you today. My name is Gerry Gilsenan. I am a war veteran with the United Nations troop in Afghanistan, on war against terrorism. I served in the 1st Armoured Division in Kabul. Based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Iraq. I have been redeployed to come and work in Kabul on the platform of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Our mission is to help beef up terrorist targeted states, mostly the United States and the European Union on the war against terrorism. On the other hand, I want to inform you that I and my partner (Trooper James Anthony Leverett) have the sum of 16.2million USD, which we got from a crude oil deal in Iraq before he was killed by an explosion while on a vehicle patrol. Due to this incident, I want you to receive these funds on my behalf as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here and come over to meet with you. Since we are working here on an Official capacity, I cannot keep these funds hence my contacting you. I guarantee and ensure you that this is a risk free deal. I want you to know that we have successfully moved these funds out to Europe with the help of a Red Cross agent and it was deposited to a bank of which the deposit receipts have been forwarded to me. I will personally authorize the bank to transfer the funds to you upon the declaration of your assistance. I just need your acceptance and all is done. Since the death of my partner, my life is not guaranteed here anymore, so I have decided to share these funds with a reliable and trusted person than the funds lodging in the bank for no interest. 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 destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us as soldiers here in Afghanistan. I do not know how long we will remain here, and I have been shot, wounded and survived so many suicide bomb attacks thankfully, this and other reasons I will mention later have prompted me to reach out for help, I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please contact me as soon as possible on my e-mail address which is my only way of communication. Regards, Sgt. Gilsenan Please feel free to email "Sgt. Gilsenan" at email@example.com and give him both barrels.
