Sgt John Adams Fraudulent Email
hide details6:27 PM (14 hours ago)
My name is John Adams. I am an American soldier presently on active service with Squadron battalion here in Afghanistan. I served with the Third Infantry Division in Iraq since 2003, before thousand of my lucky colleagues were pulled out in August this year, leaving my superior and myself among the unlucky ones drafted to Afghanistan where I am serving presently. During my call to duty in Iraq, my superior and I moved US$5million ( Five Million US dollars) being part of funds recovered from late Saddam Hussein during a search in one of his palaces in 2003. Through the assistance of a Senior Red Cross Delegate to Iraq, this fund has been safely moved out of Iraq and currently deposited in a secured financial institution in europe.
Basically, since my superior and I are not among thousands of our colleagues that were withdrawn in August, we cannot continue to keep these funds in the financial institution for as long as we remain here. Hence my superior officer has authorised me to look for a reliable and trustworthy person that could assist us to retrieve these funds from the financial institution for investment.
Once you retrieve the funds, we shall disburse it in three proportions: you will have 30% and I will have 30%, while my superior officer will have 35%. 5% will be set aside to offset all expenses that may be incurred in the process of retrieving the funds. For security reasons, this transaction must be kept very secret, and should not be disclosed to anyone else. As long as you follow my instructions, I can assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free. Due to the call of my duty here and the secret nature of this transaction, I would prefer you communicate to me through email only.
If you find my proposal interesting, reply this mail so I could send you more details.
US Army Base, Afghanistan.
