#1
Apologies if this has already been posted (quick look couldn't see it :) )

I'm thrilled to have had this offer by e-mail earlier today
From: Sgt C.Stevens,

Hey there this is sgt C.Stevens, I am a soldier and photo journalist , serving in the military .I am with the 248th Engineer corp. in the National Guard. I am writing this message from ar-ramadi in Iraq.

we hit Iraq last may 2003 and have moved around a few times building up f.o.b.'s around the western side of the country as well as missions into Bagdad.With attackes by insurgents everyday and car bombs,We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussien's family.

The total amount is US$45 Million dollars in cash,in 100 dollar bills. We want you to assist us in securing this money in the country where it is currently. no strings attached, just help us recieve it, Iraq is a warzone although partially ended. We shipped the money using diplomatic courier to ship the money out in one large silver box, using diplomatic immunity.

If you are interested I will send you the full details as soon as i get your reply signifying your interest and genuine intentions to assist in this transaction.


Respectfully,
Sgt. C.Stevens

He's definitely a jurno. His grammar is poor. I'll help him move the money. As long as he's interested it storing large sums in the Anchor Inn then I'm his man. (£2.70 for Stella! A bloody disgrace!)

What a pile of poo. It reminds me of the one that was going around a couple of months ago from a supposed African prince who was looking to get his fortune out of his country.
BORING 8O

Yeah Brandy, I think that was kind of my point :D

I quite often get these - usually from nigerians ALL IN CAPITAL LETTERS - they're called 419s and I'm well aware of how dull they are.

Just this is the first time I've seen the military angle used - and did you note the bit at the bottom saying how the e-mail in question was posted?

Not QUITE so boring as the usual sort then? :wink:

I wasn't implying you were boring Scary Spice. I meant those people who send these types of e-mails.
You are right, it is an interesting angle. Am now chuckling to myself thinking of those Americans who will get taken in by this.

Had one similar some months ago. It was from, a lance corporal in the marines, same sort of thing, we found this stolen money and need your help to try and spend it. It was well written but the L/Cpl written in full gave it away. I think it was sent a little after we saw pictures of US soldiers with a truckload of money that had been found. It would assume that we are all crooks and would see nothing wrong it partaking in theft.

The disturbing thing was that they had my address and name from another internet site and it was addressed to me in person.
