I have received an email from this chap who claims to be a Brit soldier serving in Iraq.

From: Sgt. Thomas Allen
Sgt: Third (3rd) infantry Division UK Military Iraq Division

Dear friend,

My name is Sgt. Thomas Allen, I'm a UK soldier, serving in the
military with the Third (3rd) infantry Division in Iraq (US Coalition
Force) . I and my superior after going on a rampage on Saddam Hussein
palace in Baghdad discovered a substantial amount of money. You may
need to check out the following BBC website to confirm more of our
discovery which was made known to the government, but this particular
one is a top secret:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm

While on our rampage mission to Saddam Hussein Palace, we discovered
secretly the sum of US$25,000,000 (Twenty Five Million United States
Dollars) which was secretly moved out to a secure security company in
Paris France through diplomatic means. We therefore write to seek your
assistance to proceed to Paris France and secure this funds under your
custody until we are through with our service assignment in Iraq. We
cannot disburse and keep this amount in our account while in active
service. There is no risk involved whatsoever.

If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to
find a good partner that we can trust on this project and I believe
you won't let us down. To ensure confidentiality, when you receive
this letter, kindly reply me via e-mail signifying your interest
including your following information

1) Your Tel/Fax number for verbal and administrative communication
2) Your contact address for administrative application of the funds claim
3) Your identity for us to identify you

Respectfully Submitted

Sgt. Thomas Allen
Now I wouldn't fucking mind but this geezer hasn't even done any decent research, let alone learnt English properly!

Can someone send these details off to SCIT to see if there is any truth in the ID (although I very much doubt it) as I'm off to the sand pit soon.

I shall reply to this chopper and see if I can find out anymore details so as to embarass him and get him scared!

Anyone got a good idea of how to continue?

It's a good book on one man's war to combat all these e-scammers.

It's got quite a few humourous ideas ... like, getting him to prove his 'identity' - by making the e-scammer send obscure photographs of theirself to him (like balancing a fish on his head and holding two cups of water), or by making the e-scammer tattoo something into his arm ("Baited by ..."). There are some pretty elaborate ones in there too, like faking his own death moments before he was about to give them his bank details, making them write out entire novels by hand to prove their identity, or pretending to fall in love with them.

If you want to draw this e-scammer out first email back that you're willing to help, but say, because you're sceptical and cautious, you need further proof of their identity ... then play it from their.

Let us know how you get on!

Become a Scambaiter

Quote"One of the golden rules of scambaiting is 'make your scammer do all the work'. Tie the guy up. Make his life miserable by dragging out the dealings for as long as humanly possible. What better way to keep a scammer busy than to make them copy an entire book by hand? "

What cracks me up about these scammers is that they seem to be having a pissing contest regarding the alledged amount of money. It appears to be going up and up since I first got one of these about 7 years ago. Its like an Austin Powers scene with Dr Evil! They seem to think the more money they quote, the more likely it is that someone will take them seriously, where in actual fact the reverse would be true.

Just a thought on this one how does he know that you are a serving soldier. We get a lot of these scammers who get our info from our websites mind this piece of shit does not start asking questions like where are you being stationed and what weapons do you use

Strangely, the advance-fee scam rakes in the bucks, not only in Nigeria but all around the world (but usually with Nigerians involved); I quote the US Dept of State:
Each week, the U.S. Embassy in Abuja or the Consulate General in Lagos, Nigeria (along with many other embassies) handles several "scam" cases in which businesspeople, many of them experienced in overseas transactions, have lost to confidence operators sums ranging from a few thousand to upwards of one million dollars.
Apparently the biggest and best source of greedy suckers is in the US, but Europeans fall for it on a large scale too. Very silly.

The scammers are good at flogging property they don't own, too. All over Nigeria are notices on walls saying: "This house is NOT for sale"

Anyone who falls for something like this, be they Yank, Brit or any one else quite frankly deserves to be relieved of their cash. Especially if English is their first language - even under the Liabour party education system a primary school child could spot the mistakes!!
