419 scammers- bringing things up to date

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by afcass, Jul 2, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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:

    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.
    Sgt. Gilsenan

    Please feel free to email "Sgt. Gilsenan" at gerry.gilsenan@aol.com and give him both barrels.
  2. He's gonna die. They're going to hunt him down and it's all your fault you murdurous unthinking bastard. I hope you feel guilty for the rest of your life!
  3. I had one like this too, I sent an email back saying how much of a coincidence it was that we were both in the US Army and asking what unit they were with. No reply, funnily...
  4. I'm sure he'll get everything he deserves! :)
  5. Got a luverly one today :) Should he trust me, I have an honest face?

    Good day My friend,

    How are you today? Hope all is well with you and your family? I know that this letter will certainly come to you as a surprise as we don’t know ourselves before, but be rest assured that it is real and a genuine business.

    I am Dr. Mohammed Mojibul Hoque, from London.I am an account officer to Mr. Rafik Hariri, I was Born in Bangladesh in 1965, but nationalized in United Kingdom.

    The late Rafik Hariri was a Lebanese self-made billionaire and business tycoon, and was a five time Prime Minister of Lebanon. You can view this site for confirmation.

    I got your mail through my private search and out of Desperation I decided to reach you through this medium. Mr. Rafik Hariri deposited Twenty Nine Million Great British Pounds (?29, 000,000.00 GBP) in a bank here in London and I want to invest this money in your country and under your care.

    The need to move out this money arose when the Prime Minister David Cameron said that some of the money held in dormant accounts would be used for youth and community projects. You can confirm this in the website below.


    I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regard. Now permit me to ask these few questions:-

    (1) Can I completely trust you?

    (2) I am ready to offer you 35% of this (?29,000.000.00 GBP) I hope it is acceptable by you?

    Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible for more details, via my personal Email:drmohammedmojibulhoque@inMail24.com
