From Nigeria to U.S. Soldiers

Oh boy - the sources of free money just keep moving around, like some sort of Quantum Leap scenario. Who's got tons of cash and somehow needs me as a willing partner in crime this time?

Dear Friend,

I am Capt. Mathew Zedwick, of the US Marine Force on Monitoring and Peacekeeping mission in Baghdad-Iraq. I know this may not be the proper way of contacting you based on the nature of my proposal but this is the only means available to me here.

On the 27th day of April 2007, we were alerted on the sudden presence of some Terrorists camping in a suburb not too far from Kabala here in Iraq. After Immediate intervention, we captured three (3) of the Terrorists; twenty-six (26) were killed leaving seven (7) injured. In the process of torture they confessed being rebels for late Ayman al-Zawahiri and took us to a cave in Kabala, which served as their camp. Here we recovered several guns, bombs and other Ammunitions including some boxes
among which one filled with hard drugs (cocaine) and the other two to my amazement contain some US Dollars amounting to $17.2M. I however instructed my junior intelligent officers to keep this in high secrecy.

I am in keen need of a reliable and trustworthy person like you who would receive, secure and protect these boxes containing the US Dollars for me till my assignment elapses in here in Iraq as the boxes have already been moved out of Iraq. I assure and promise to give you 25% of this fund, however feel free to negotiate what you wish to have as your percentage in this business.

Please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret to protect my job with the US Monitoring and Peacekeeping mission. If you will assist me, please send me your response including your telephone so that I can talk to you directly.

Sincerely yours,

Capt. Mathew Zedwick

I'm sure that information about al-Zawahiri being killed will come out any day now. Criminy, he's got an up to $25 million bounty on his head. Now we've missed out on that and have to put up with 25% of lame boxes of $17.2 million that I'm sure have had to be hidden in camel poo to stop the poor Captain's superiors from handing the boxes directly to Halliburton for 20 burgers and a screwdriver.

I think I'll pass. If any of it were true, he'd already be court-martialed just for being stupid enough to send the message out in plain text to idiots he doesn't even know. Then again, that clever subterfuge of pretending to be sending the e-mail out from India (via sify.com) when the originating IP address is in Washington state might indicate he knows what he's doing!


I wonder how many people fall for these?

Anyone attempted to string any of these latest scammers (even if they're repeats) along? They're asking for a phone number up front - I wonder if they will actually phone it or whether there will be some excuse to keep from doing so as long as possible (it will depend quite a lot on the quality of the English-speaking accent at the other end, I surmise).
