SOURCE OF MONEY: SOME MONEY IN VARIOUS CURRENCIES WERE DISCOVERED IN BARRELS AT A FARMHOUSE NEAR ONE OF SADDAM’S OLD PALACES IN TIKRIT-IRAQ DURING A RESCUE OPERATION, AND IT WAS AGREED BY STAFF SPC. ALEXANDER CRUSH AND I THAT SOME PART OF THIS MONEY BE SHARED AMONG BOTH OF US BEFORE INFORMING ANYBODY ABOUT IT SINCE BOTH OF US SAW THE MONEY FIRST. THIS WAS QUITE AN ILLEGAL THING TO DO, BUT I TELL YOU WHAT? NO COMPENSATION CAN MAKE UP FOR THE RISK WE HAVE TAKEN WITH OUR LIVES IN THIS HELL HOLE.

A few things to note that show this to be a scam:
1. The email is sent from Nigeria not Iraq.
2. The general poor spelling and grammar and the use of CAPS throughout.
3. Sgt Collier can't spell his first name correctly.
4. A search on one of the phrases brings up a multitude of results here.

And finally, if what these soldiers are doing is so illegal would they contact a total stranger via the Internet for assistance?

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.
