We all know the Nigerian Email Scam, where we are asked to give personal information to help get money out of some poor African country. Some of us even attended the 3rd Annual Nigerian Email Conference. Guess what? We now have Iraqi-Soldier Email spam. I just got the following:
My name is, Major. James Negron and i represent a faction of American soldiers,serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, we came across your e-mail address(s) in the process of research and enquiry into an immense millitary global data base. I believe you are familiar with the war situation in Iraq ? Besides the killings, a lot of activities do occur; antique sales, stocked foreign cash discovery and lots more. We are lucratively involved in these activities, myself and my colleagues want to send consignments out of iraq, which will be discussed upon your acceptance of this transaction and we require a worthy,upright and business minded individual for safe keeping outside the Iraqi state. You might have an insight through;http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm and details will be sent upon signal of interest. Our contact email ; firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your co-operation
Major. J. NEGRON
I wonder how many people are going to fall for this? Hmmm, I just took my 2006 USAF Annual IA Training. I wonder if this is worth reporting to the 1st Armored Division.
