I get those ridiculous letters all the time about funds locked up in
an account. Some old hag can't get to it unless she gets ME to
help.The most recent one I got was form someone in Iraq. It's bad
enough that people create these lies and expect us to bite, but
using the Iraq war was the most outrageous one I have received
yet. Here is what was sent from CAPT MICHAEL JAMES,

Dear Friend,

With a very desperate need for assistance,I have summoned up
courage to contact you.I am presently in Iraq with the United
States Marine Corps, I found your contact particulars in an Address
journal.I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of
$500,000.00(Five hundred thousand dollars)to you,as far as I can
be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my
service here.This is no stolen money,and there are no dangers

some money in various currencies was discovered concealed in
barrels with piles of weapons and ammunitions at a location near
one of Saddam's old palaces during a rescue operation,and it was
agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us.

No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with
our lives in this hell hole.

The above figure was given to me as my share,and to conceal this
kind of money became a problem for me,so with the help of a
German contact working here,and his office enjoys some
immunity,I was able to get the package out to a safe location
entirely out of trouble spot.He does not know the real contents of
the package,and believes that it belongs to an Asian American
who died in an air aid,and before giving up,trusted me to hand
over the package to his family.There is a secured way of getting
the package out to a safer country for you to pick up,and i will
discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist
me.One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this
matter with a third party,should you have reasons to reject this
offer.please destroy this mail as any leakage of this information will
be too bad for us.

I do not know for how long we will remain here but hopefully and
before the year runs out,I have survived 2 suicide bomb tacks by
the special grace of God,this and other reasons I will mention later
has prompted me to reach out for help.

Please you can reach me on my personal e-mail address below fo
more information.


Capt. Michael James.

It makes you almost want to write one up for Donald Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney.

Dear friend,

After receiving your name via a complicated NSA filtering program, I call upon you to help a fellow American out of a tough spot. As you may admit to being aware there is a small sum of invested money that I need to continue shuffling out of Iraq to the paltry of some $8.8 billion. Given the current market conditions today, you know this to a very minor amount but waste not, want not. In appreciation for this minor exchange I will let you keep your freedom and not detain you in Gitmo, which is better than most of the 10% scams that you get sent from that "Nigerian" fellow who is really Karl Rove.

Your friend, Dick
pls reply
