I won't say what my first thoughts were my dear FLYBOJ and Erich but it's NOT suitable for printing. Bad as it is when using civilian people but when doing this to the men and women risking their lifes out there for others....even the devil would blush and tell me to watch my language.

Oh, I delete these as soon as I get them, believe you me.

When I get those they usually follow with another - "Mr. so and so has left a million dollars in your name so contact us, etc." They are after your bank account information or want you to send "tax" money, then they claim you'll get the big prize.

Have you got the e-mail address it came from? If i had it i could turn it over to army CID. being that they are possibly using the name of a real unit and soldier i think they might be interested in this.

Disgusting. what some people will do to scam and cheat people. Question was asked who would believe such crap? Answer people with low self esteem lack of moral character and those easily fooled by such scams. Never ceases to amaze me in this world such people exsist. Whats the old saying. Fools and their money are soon parted

Any e-mail telling you of an unforseen windfall in some obscure country is pure BS. IF (and its a big IF) you do have something like that happen to you, the proper proceedure is for a lawyer to contact you directly, and its not by E-mail. A foreign country/dictator wants to give you $25 MILLION? I doubt it. Nobody gives away that much cash. They're all scams, and the best thing to do is to either delete it, or post it on the Mugu-baiting 419-Eaters forum previously posted. I spent an evening browsing through some of their better return-scams, and the things they get these people to do...pure genius!!!

I've even gotten them from Nigeria where a Mr Peter Cheeseman was killed
in a crash, and I am his only heir. He left me $25 mil, but I can only claim
35 percent of it. Gee.... all I have to do is sent the Barrister my bank
account number. Quite simple. Egad I'm filthy rich and don't even know it !
