This keeps going!!

I rolled with it and this is what he replied, even attaching 3 pictures of him, including passport!

Amazing!! I really hope nobody falls for this!

One thing I don't understand is to why he asks for me to remove my add from the website...



"Hello Dear!

Thanks for your answer, we have destiny with us. Honestly I feel much more relaxed now in doing this deal with you, and I want to assure you with the life of my family that you will never regret doing this business with me. I am a widower with two kids and I love my family too much, so I can not involve myself with anything that will put my family into trouble. I therefore give you my honest and complete words of assurance that this business is completely legal. 100% legitimate and risk free. I sincerely need your assistance for my arrival in your Country in a short period from now. .

My box containing 8.2 million Euro. Which I got during our raid on terrorists and needs to be taking out of here as soon as possible because based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from here, I have been deployed to come and serve in one of the US Military Base in your country. I need you to assist me that is why I contacted you.

My full name is Wilfred Joe Vernon. I am from Maryland in United State of America (detailed address in my ID and phone number +1-516-708-6491, which is not reachable at the moment because of my location) a nanny and my two kid daughters live right now. After I lost my wife to Cancer and I went back to Iraq and then Afghanistan; My relocation to Afghanistan and the time frame to secure this fund from out of the war region of Kabul to a capable safe hand that will understand the capacity of such huge fund is the reason why I contacted you.

First, let me make you understand my power in affecting the transfer of this consignment (funds). I am in command of my unit in USA Marine base in Kabul, Afghanistan, I give orders, and I am a marine and you know the respect and honor we control. I do not need to give you any further info. I believe you have the mind to understand on this clue.

I will be doing myself a great favor to explain in simple terms how this deal is going to be, I have arranged everything in a way that you will have your own share of the funds and you will keep my share for me until I arrive your country. Now I want you to know that often a Red Cross relief jet flies to Europe from here to go collect relief from donors in Europe. I have two of my men as security to the airplane, I will contact the diplomat whom i have some of my men on guard in his premises to seal up the consignment which is with the red cross security company to transfer to the beneficiary in Europe.

I want you to know that diplomats run a DIPLOMATIC COURIER SERVICE. This service is meant for transferring hard documents and precious stones, and it is called consignment. This consignment will be registered under their service and will be carried with their diplomatic immunity to any country where they have diplomatic grounds and from there he will deliver to you as my beneficiary of the consignment because he maintain diplomatic immunity in Europe without search from any security agency.

Be informed that under the DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITIES AND PRIVILEGES ACT, Any licensed diplomat is immune from search, arrest be it for criminal or civil prosecution, this immunity extends to his person, luggage's, house, property, and even his domestic servants. This is why I will send the money through diplomatic luggage and no security agent will search it until you receive it. We Americans call it DIPLOMATIC POUCH.

In this case, the deal will go like this. Once I register the consignment in your name, the diplomat will then pick it up from the diplomat office after it arrived Europe as a diplomatic consignment in a diplomatic box the diplomat will pick up the consignment from the airplane and then deliver it to you in. The airplane that will be used in this deal is the Red Cross Jet which equally has its own immunity because of the nature of its work. Wherever it lands in Europe the diplomat will now go and claim the consignment and then have an appointment with you to deliver it to you in your Address.

Please I want you to assure me that you will never disappoint me in this offer so that I will present you as the genuine beneficiary of the funds. please I advise you to show better commitment in this deal. Always check and reply me whenever I send a message to you. Please note that it will take two days after the registration of the consignment in your name for you to receive it in your address so everything will be concluded without delay.

I advise you to keep this deal very secret if you really want to help me kindly remove the property from the advert list because I must buy it. I will conclude with the Red Cross and the Diplomat will finalize all the arrangement and I will inform you on what to do. Provide me with any form of your identity and full information:

1. Full names
2. Your private phone
3. Your address for the delivery.
4. Scanned copy of your Identification(ID)

I plead that you remain confidential as I don't want any other party involved in this deal as I do not want anything to happen to this fund. I send to you on attachment a copy of my ID and my pictures for you to know me better and I assure you that you will never ever regret this deal. Please keep all information completely confidential.

I am waiting for your answer quickly. Thank you for your understanding and God bless.


Regards,

Captain Wilfred Vernon"

He wants to make sure that another scammer doesn't get hold of you or you don't meet a real partner there.

The best thing for you to do now is block him and don't respond any further. Don't accuse him or make excuses, just disappear and leave him wondering what went wrong.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

This is to notify you at this moment that I got a positive news from the Red Cross Cargo officers, few hours ago their Cargo Jet is available in Kabul right now and will be moving tomorrow night to transit in Istanbul then proceed to Kiev. the Cargo Jet will deliver the box in Istanbul or in Kiev and we have to take care of the clearance charges at the Customs cargo control officials, I choose Istanbul for this delivery due to i was informed that it is more safer and easiest place for us to handle this delivery.

Therefore the Cargo Jet will transit and deliver the box in Istanbul. meanwhile the diplomat has confirmed that he will be in Istanbul together with the Red Cross cargo Jet, as soon as they arrive in Istanbul the diplomat will contact you for the clearing process hope you are ready for this delivery?

Here is the delivery procedure.

1. The Red Cross cargo Jet will deliver the box in Istanbul in your name.

2. The diplomat will be at the diplomatic cargo control office in Istanbul to help us with the clearing process.

3. You will take care of the clearance charges From Istanbul to your home address.

4. You have to be ready and prepared for this delivery due to i don't wanna move my box and have it abandoned at the middle of road,
i don't want anything to happen to my fund.

5. I have sent the required information to the diplomat to proceed the delivery. however I can cancel the delivery if you are unable to handle it, I'm giving you all this vital information for you to be ready and prepared for this delivery. my location and my allegiance here will make it impossible for me to control the delivery as soon as the box leave Kabul. apparently the box will be moved and deliver to your home address the same day it arrive in Istanbul.

Be rest assured that you will take back whatever expenses you made in this delivery from the box as soon as you receive it.
i will send the security code number of the box to you immediately the diplomat is on his way to your city, to enable you open the box and confirm the cash once the diplomat arrive in your home.

Note. you must not mention the content of this box to the diplomat or anyone else, I have already informed them that the box contains your family private documents. therefore you have to maintain and keep the content of this box highly confidential.

I am so fortunate to secured the fund and it means everything to me moreover i will be on my retirement very soon please i don't want any betrayal, I'm doing this to set up a good retirement and investment life that will benefit both of us including our families, and i want everything to be done confidentially as you have assured me to follow my directives with all trust.

Regards,
Capt. Kelly Nelson
