Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

Subject: CONFIDENTIAL AND PLEASE DO GET BACK TO ME
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
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 it's 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...... email@example.com
My Sincere regards,
Capt James Brian.(U.S MARINE)
