    Nigerian Scam with a new wrinkle

    Fall for this one and the terrorists really will win.
    CONFIDENTIAL DEAL,PLEASE GET BACK TO ME
    "Capt James .W Brian" <captjamesbrian@<censored>


    Dear Friend,

    I am captain James .W. Brian in the US Marine Corps on Monitoring and Peace a
    keeping mission in Baghdad-Iraq. The reason why I am explaining my finding
    to you is to seek for your assistance to enable you contributes immensely to
    the actualization of my dreams.

    On the 18th day of March 2007, we were alerted on the presence of some
    terrorists hideouts in Haifa Street, a long thoroughfare of high-rise
    buildings built by Saddam Hussein here in Baghdad.

    After Immediate intervention by the Iraqi forces and ours, we were able to
    capture many foreign Arab fighters linked to al Qaeda in that operation and
    over 100 militants were killed on the process. Among the Arab fighters
    linked to al Qaeda two were interrogated by two of our intelligent
    investigators and I. They confessed that some of them are fighters for al
    Qaeda and some are for Ayman al-Zawahiri and they took us to some of their
    hideout which runs along the west bank of the Tigris River that cuts through
    the capital.

    When we invaded into the hideout, we recovered several guns, amour including
    some boxes among which two contains bullets, one filled with hard drugs
    (heroine) and the other two to my amazement contain some US Dollars which we
    assumed amounted to $23.2M after I and two of the intelligent investigators
    counted them and it took us over 4 hours to get it counted.

    I however instructed them to keep this in high secrecy so that we can have
    the money to our selves, they all agreed to the plan and they replied to me
    on how I can get this huge sum out of this country and I told them that
    ital‚„Ęs no problem.

    This motivated me to connive with my best friend in our force who went with
    me and the two other officers to keep the boxes in a safer place.

    I am now in keen need of a "Reliable and Trustworthy" person like you who
    would receive, secure and protect these boxes containing the US Dollars for
    me untill my assignment elapses here.

    I assure and promise to give you 20% of this fund, however feel free to
    negotiate what you wish to have as your percentage in this deal.

    Please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret to protect my job with
    the US Monitoring and Peace-Keeping mission. please you can contact me with
    my private mailbox...... captjamesbrianus@<scamaddress>

    My Sincere regards,
    Capt James Brian.(U.S MARINE)

    My editing, but the original was almost as bad. I've already turned it over to the Feds spam@uce.gov

    - the sad thing is that there are some 'box 'o rocks' who will fall for this...

    - however, you can have fun with some of these folks:
