Hello, My name is JOHNSON AKU, employed to work in Iraq as a language
translator. I am attached to 1st BN, 68th Amour Reg, 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat
Team, 4th Infantry as an interpreter. As you aware, we were being attacked
everyday by insurgents through hostile fire and car bombs. SOURCE OF FUNDS: In
April 2003, I and some other crew members in my team discovered $650M USD in
Saddam Hussein's palace. In the process of cross-checking the funds, I and my
unit head managed to move away a total sum of US$12 Million dollars cash out of
the $650MUSD, mostly 100-dollar bills and was quickly flown out of the war zone
as a military cargo. The cargo was later disguised and declared as personal
military effects before it was flown to Europe where it is now deposited in an
undisclosed FINANCE, SECURITY & TRUST COMPANY. You can as well click on the site
below for more details about the source of the funds. The site will give you a
bit of idea of our operation and how I came about the fun!
d though the security & finance company where the cash consignments are
deposited is not aware of all this information.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm Unfortunately, my colleagues
lost their dear life through hostile fire from the wicked Iraqi insurgents. I
therefore seek your partnership in claiming and receiving the cash consignments
from the finance and security firm where the cash consignments are deposited for
safety for possible investments on viable businesses of mutual beneficial
interest. I will take 60% while you are going to be entitled to 40% for your
participation and assistance. I wish to inform you also that it is my fervent
wish to leave the United Kingdom as soon as we successfully and smoothly
conclude the transaction. Upon your response, I will send you the full details
of the Security & Trust Company in whose custody the funds are lodged as well as
the modalities of claiming and receiving the cash consignments. But you must
assure me a!
nd demonstrate it that you can be trusted as I need your unwa!
vering assurances. I am presently in the United Kingdom where I am presently
receiving treatment due to injuries sustained after our convoy came under heavy
fire in a suburb area of Baghdad. Please reconfirm your full names, address and
direct phone number immediately so that I can submit the information to the
finance firm where the cash consignments are deposited for change/transfer of
ownership in your favour to enable you claim and receive the funds. I promise
you that there is no risk on both sides as far as you follow my instructions and
take my advice. The transaction will be concluded under a legitimate
arrangement. Please reply to j_aku@strompost.com Respectfully yours, JOHNSON

Is your e-mail running a bit slow? It was sent on Monday, 10 Dec but you only received it this morning?

The 68th Amour regiment?

They're just a bunch of Don Juans.
 
#4
Aahh, the usual Nigerian scam, re-written again. There is a great website to follow these particular scams; great reading and a superb wind-up on the perpetrators.
 
#5
The ususal tactic is request photos of them with fishes and bread or other such hilarity.
 
#6
new method.. just forward H M paymaster Generals bank of England account details, all freely available on the interweb.

Reminds me a bit of the plot from The Three Kings.

Therefore email to say that you agree but your banking details are on a piece of paper up your arrse.

Ask him if the the 68ths motto is still "death to all foreigners".

Unfortunately, my colleagues
lost their dear life through hostile fire from the wicked Iraqi insurgents.
So, if I have read this correctly, he is saying that the insurgents are "wicked"?

How can anyone question that level of perceptive insight?
