Where the hell do I put this? No idea but the mods will figure it out I guess.

This is a new one. We all get those Nigerian scams and the Russian marriage proposals (I like these)


But now a scam using the death of OBL (or UBL) and the American Forces.

Many people here know my stance on the US Military so I won't go into it but this is absolutely pathetic in any sense of the word.

I won't even use "Quotes" or give it the respect of "EX-TEXT" because I have absolutely no respect for the author in using the deaths of so many to prey on others for financial gain.

I believe that most here on ATS would see this for what it really is but just in case, here it is so that you see it for a scam when it comes to your email.

Peace.

Here it is:

Hi ,
My name is Sgt. John Samuel US ARMY serving the World and my
country in the most honorable way I know I can, in AFGHANISTAN right now, in
a nutshell, I am an American soldier serving in the Military with the
Army 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance,
I found your contact particulars during my email search and picked up
courage to contact you for your assistance.

Some money in various currencies were discovered in a room at a farm
house near one of Osama Bin Laden's old house in Kabul-Afghanistan during a rescue
operation, I happened to be one of the soldiers that lead that
operation that day, so it was agreed by Col. William E. Cole the
head of our battalion that some part of this money will be shared among
both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the
money first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what?
No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives
in this hell hole, my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb just
few months ago, and I cannot count how many times GOD has saved
my life down here.

Now i found a very reliable way of sending a trunk metallic box
containing the amount of United States Dollars worth Twelve Million
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars(US$ 12.5 Million) as you must agree
with me it has been hell on earth trying to keep this money safe from
people's eyes for all these while and with this opportunity all I need
is just someone capable I can trust 100% I can send the box to.
So if you can assure me of your honesty I will go ahead and send the
box to you for safe keeping till I am back home and I will gladly give
you 40% of the money.
If this okay with you please get back to me with the following so i
can get the box across to you.
1. Your full name
2. Contact address
3. Telephone number
4. Occupation.

Waiting to hear from you.
Yours in Service.

Sgt. John Samuel
US ARMY

It's great to see people stoop low enough to imitate others risking their lives to try and con others out of money. Then again it isn't a big surprise to see this happen though.

Emails similar to that have been floating around since the first gulf war, it's a 419 scam, the ever famous Nigerian email scam (they don't always originate from Nigeria, eastern Europe and north Africa are really getting into the game now).

Believe me when I say that I know exactly what it is.

I am very proud to say that I have aided in a few of these:

Boy the Sargent sure gets around
www.419baiter.com...
antifraudintl.org...

He even stowed away with the navy seals on the OBL raid.

Is anyone going to bait this fool.

Maybe if a bunch of us baited this fool we could have a lot of fun mixing him up by switching our E mail addresses around till he gets lost trying to remember who is who.

I am usually good at spotting fakes by realizing what the scam actually is. But here I cannot figure it out. Usually these scams involve fake checks. Are they going to send millions of dollars in counterfeit cash? Why would you need to scam someone to do that?

I am probably missing something obvious, as I can't figure it out, lol.

I have noticed a new twist in these scams because most people know not give out banking detail or send money:

They lure people to a country (like South Africa) where they are kidnapped and held for ransom.

Members of the South African Police Service have arrested six suspects for allegedly kidnapping two Korean nationals lured to South Africa through a 419 scam. The 65 year-old father and his daughter, who is in her 30s apparently responded to an email from the suspects promising tens of millions of dollars. The duo arrived in South Africa from South Korea on Tuesday. The suspects allegedly tasked a driver to fetch the victims from OR Tambo airport. The driver and the two Korean nationals were kidnapped and kept at a house in Meadowlands, Soweto.

South African Police Service
or this one

‘I went with him to a hotel and met a guy who told me if I had 60K he’d double it in 24 hours. I saw it done! I saw somebody literally make money with R200 and US$100 notes in front of my eyes. [explicit language], of course I asked questions, but it’s different when you see it happen before your eyes. When you see hard currency made in front of you, you get excited. You get a big hard-on.’ This wasn’t a counterfeiting operation. The story went that the notes he saw were rands and dollars that the South African government was secretly transporting from the country to bankroll Lauren Kabila’s war in the Congo. The notes had been supposedly dyed with chemicals to render them unusable until they could be chemically processed on-site and paid to Kabila’s troops. However, the cash had been intercepted by corrupt officials who now required Terence’s help in ‘converting’ their haul of over R3-million from its ‘black dollar’ form into usable tender.

9 times out of ten they will get you close enough to greed that when they ask for a shipping fee or a clearance fee you will pay.
