I got this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) today and boy o boy did I laugh:
My name is Scott Wright, I am an American soldier in peace keeping force in Iraq, I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, as you know insurgents everyday and car bombs are attacking us.
We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family. The total amount is US$ 23 Million dollars in cash. We want to move this money to you, so that you may keep our share for us till when we will come over to meet you.We will take 60%, my partner and I.You take 40%. No strings
attached, just help us move it out of Iraq, Iraq is a war zone. We plan on using
diplomatic courier and shipping the money out in three large silver
boxes, using diplomatic immunity.
If you are interested I will send you the full details,
my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us. Can I trust you? When you receive this letter, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your most confidential telephone/fax numbers for
quick communication also your contact details.
This business is risk free. The boxes can be shipped out in 48hrs.
The Nigerian emails are pretty common but this is new to me.
