Note that the message is for... nobody :lol:
This scammer left "...". This shows the message was sent to a lot of people at the same time, as is it unpersonal.

Attn...

I am Peter Swiss of the US Marine Force on Monitoring and Peace –keeping mission in Baghdad-Iraq. I am from Gretna ( New Orleans ), I got your contact from the US chamber of commerce online and I am contacting you after a random selection of so many contact addresses I found online.

On the 26th day of may 2009, 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 the late Aymanal Zawahiri and took us to a cave in Kabala which served as their camp. At their camp we recovered several guns, bombs and other Ammunition's including some boxes among which two contained nuclear weapons, one filled with hard drugs(cocaine)and the other one to my amazement after I and two of my junior intelligent officers counted themcontained some US Dollars amounting to 25.9M.

I however instructed them to keep this in high secrecy, after which i gave them $5.9m as their cut in the deal, thereby leaving me with a round figure of $20m.

I am in keen need of a “Reliable and Trustworthy” person like you who would receive, secure and protect this box containing the US Dollars for me up Until my assignment elapses here in Iraq .

I assure and promise to give you 10% 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 top most secret to protect my job with the US Marines.

Contact me through my personal email at ([email protected]) so as to maintain the confidentiality of this deal :

i await your reply in great anticipation.

Kind Regards

Peter Swiss

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is...

here is another much simpler version of the same scam

----- Forwarded Message ----

Hello,

I'm Mark Kennedy of the 4th Infantry Division, currently serving in Iraq.
I need your help in moving $29 million out of Iraq. If everything goes as planned, you get to keep 30% of the funds. I'm not asking you to do anything illegal and you don't have to pay me any fees.

If you're interested, write me on my private email: [email protected] for details.

Best regards,

Mark Kennedy


A few things of note;
They want you to think that a US soldier taking $29 million from Iraq is not illegal, how could it not be

Next thing is that they say "if everything goes as planned" if everything goes as they have planned, you will be out of pocket by the end of the week and completely broke with the rest of your friends who you have borrowed from by the end of the year.

"You dont have to pay "him" any fees", perhaps not, but you will have to pay somebody, perhaps a courier, lawyer or dimplomat, they are all the same person or group, the multiple charactors involved are to make it seem more believable

This money simply does not exist, dont fall for it
