The following email came from a scammer who is pretending to be in The US military, of course this is a lie.


Any money found by soldiers serving in Iraq must be turned in regardless of the circumstances, if the money really did exist, it would certainly be illegal to launder or receive it for them.

This is a common scam, they usually come complete with photos of a real service man / woman in uniform that they have stolen from the net.

The scammer doesn't want you to tell anybody about it, the more people you tell, the more likely that one of them will tell you its a scam

Please dont fall for it, do not reply.

Hello friend,

I hope my email meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My name
is Sgt Perry Rice. I am in the Engineering military unit here in Ba'qubah
in Iraq,we have some amount of funds that we want to move out of the
country.

My partners and I need a good partner someone we can trust. It is oil
money and legal.

Basically since we are working for the government we cannot keep these
funds, but we want to transfer and move the funds to you, so that you can
keep it for us in your safe account or an offshore account. But we are
moving it through Diplomatic means, to send it to your house directly or a
bank of your choice using Diplomatic Courier Service.

The most important thing is that can we trust you? Once the funds get to
you, you take your 30% out and keep our own 70%. Your own part of this
deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to. Our own part
is sending it to you.If you are interested i will furnish you with more details.

But the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all
times. Waiting for your urgent response via my private email:
[email protected]

This business is risk free.

Regards,
Sgt.Perry Rice
