Well not so much making money out of the war, just a new angle for their old "give us your bank details and we will give you loads of money" scam.

Just hit delete.
With the sender's snotbox. Repeatedly.

The linky pic of the email shows just enough to ring an alarm bell with anyone with a brain ...

Hello,

I am Eric miller and I am a British soldier ...
If CO 1RTR can't even capitalise his name correctly, what chance have we got?

Disgusting spamming to66ers ... God, how I hate these people. :x

We've known about this for quite a while. Ignore and delete as per usual for phishing and spam mail.

No idea what the MoD are doing about it tbh.

Cant do much at all since it is all based in African countries.
there has been a thread on this before but cant find it.
There is a whole internet site dedicated to the "outing" of the scammers but again, I cant find it right now. One or two people have even successfully got money out of the scammers by reversing the scam.

I saw somewhere that they all sit in an internet cafe and send their emails and stuff, there must be hundreds of the buggers

surely there is some department in the MoD that can track these people down. They do have the technology.
Given the state of MoD's budget at the moment, it probably came from Main Building in the first place!
