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. Hello

    This is Mr. Arjen Derek of the United Nations 1st Battalion Scots Guard, but redeployed to Afghanistan, and at present stationed in Kabul South West of Afghanistan. I will like to share some very vital information that would bring some good financial returns to us in just a few weeks or days depending on how fast we pursue the matter.

    I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $20m to you, as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This may not be the best medium to make this kind of contact because of the numerous scam offers transmitted through the Internet, but it is all I have access to for now.
     
  2. Yeah, and...?

    It's nothing new.
     
  3. I'm in Kabul, but I didn't realise it was in SW Afghanistan. Tell your man not to bother with the courier. I'll collect it for you & we'll split it 50/50 ok bud?
     
  4. Got this one a couple of days ago...

    "Greetings,

    My name is Nancy McGowan I am from the USA and I am a certified financial consultant presently working with some top banks in Cambodia. I will go straight to the point telling you why I contacted you, during the first quarter general audit of one of the banks (bank name withheld) I discovered huge amount of funds belonging to the deceased Libyan dictator's (General Muammar Gaddafi) son who was killed in the NATO air strike, from the records I have here, I understand the deposit was made in 2007 in the name of the deceased son (Saif al-Arab Gadhafi) of the deceased Libyan dictator. I have the opportunity to make you the beneficiary of the funds provided you are willing to work with me, with the help of my friend at the bank I can manipulate all the records and documents and fix in your name as the depositor so that you can be presented for release of funds to you, which I have finalized with him and he has asked me to look for a foreigner that will work with us. This is why
    I!
    am contacting you and you must un

    (For my safety please do not discuss this deal with any other person).

    Regards
    Nancy McGowan"
