    A new SCAM email.....

    Dear Friend,

    With a very desperate need for assistance,I have summoned up courage to
    contact you.I am presently in Iraq with the United States Marine Corps, I found your
    contact particulars in an Address journal.I am seeking your assistance to
    evacuate the sum of $500,000.00(Five hundred thousand dollars)to you,as far
    as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my
    service here.This is no stolen money,and there are no dangers involved.


    SOURCE OF MONEY:
    some money in various currencies was discovered concealed in barrels with
    piles of weapons and ammunitions at a location near one of Saddam's old
    palaces during a rescue operation,and it was agreed by all party present
    that the money be shared amongst us.


    No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in
    this hell hole.

    The above figure was given to me as my share,and to conceal this kind of
    money became a problem for me,so with the help of a German contact working
    here,and his office enjoys some immunity,I was able to get the package out
    to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot.He does not know the real
    contents of the package,and believes that it belongs to an Asian American
    who died in an air aid,and before giving up,trusted me to hand over the
    package to his family.There is a secured way of getting the package out to a

    safer country for you to pick up,and i will discuss this with you when I am
    sure that you are willing to assist me.One passionate appeal I will make to
    you is not to discuss this matter with a third party,should you have reasons to reject this offer.please destroy this mail as any leakage of this
    information will be too bad for us.

    I do not know for how long we will remain here but hopefully and before the
    year runs out,I have survived 2 suicide bomb tacks by the special grace of
    God,this and other reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help.

    Please you can reach me on my personal e-mail address below for more
    information.

    Email:jamtaxa0@hotmail.com

    Respectfully,

    Capt. Michael James.
    Now they are trying to disgrace OUR Marines!!!
    I wish there was a way to track this back to the origin....

    Tell us how you really feel!! Though I couldn't agree more.

    I've reported a couple of these in the past.
    I believe it was to the Secret Service.

    Kind of hard to feel sorry for anybody that's stupid enough to fall for that. It is kind of crappy trying to use the USMC to con people.

    LOL, yes. Reading that I could not tell it was fake. a large sum of money that is located overseas. some stranger wants to send it to me. I am prevalent on the net with robotics, but a stranger in bagdad knows my email address? how very odd... I guess I should not have put that check in my account......

    I generally use this site to report these types of scams. The more information they get the better the chance of them shutting down the scam and maybe prosecuting the criminals.
