Subject:  PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME (URGENTLY)

Message:

Dear Friend.

I decided to contact you via email since it appears to be fast and more efficient means of
correspondence. My name is Sergeant Andrew I. Bruno, an American soldier, but British by
birth. I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division here in Iraq; as you know we
are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs is no longer news; it became
worst after Saddam Hussein was executed.

During one of our rescue Mission we came across a safe that contains the total sum of
$210,000,000 (Two hundred and ten Million United States Dollars) that belongs to the
revolutionaries. We believe that they use this money to purchase arms and ammunitions,
and it was agreed by all party present that the money will be shared amongst us. You can
go to this web link to read about the reported events of this nature here:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm

Out of the total fund my share was $30,000,000 (Thirty Million United states Dollars). I am
seeking your assistance to evacuate my share of the money out of here to safety; I will
arrange to have this done within the next 48 hours upon receiving your response. I shall be
compensating you with the sum of US$3,000,000.00 (Three Million United States Dollars)
on final conclusion of this project, while the rest will be for me for investment purposes.

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 e-mail as any leakage of
this information will be too bad for me.

I do not know for how long we will remain here, and I have survived two suicide bomb
attacks so far, which prompted me to reach out for assistance.

Please if this proposal is acceptable by you, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your
interest including an I.D and most confidential telephone numbers for quick communication,
also your home address where the fund would be delivered.

As soon as I receive your email with the information, I will furnish you with full details on
when and how the fund shall be delivered to you for safety.

Waiting for our urgent reply.

Best regards,

Sgt. Andrew I. Bruno.

READ CAREFULLY AND REPLY URGENTLY!

MY NAME IS (STAFF SGT.) IRVIN BROWN, I AM AN AMERICAN SOLDIER, SERVING IN
THE MILITARY WITH THE ARMY'S 3RD INFANTRY DIVISION. I HAVE A VERY DESPERATE
NEED FOR ASSISTANCE AND HAVE SUMMED UP COURAGE TO CONTACT YOU.

I FOUND YOUR CONTACT PARTICULARS IN AN ADDRESS JOURNAL AND I AM SEEKING
YOUR KIND ASSISTANCE TO MOVE THE SUM OF EIGHT MILLION UNITED STATES
DOLLARS (US$8,000,000) TO YOU IN UNITED STATES, AS FAR AS I CAN BE ASSURED
THAT MY SHARE WILL BE SAFE IN YOUR CARE UNTIL I COMPLETE MY SERVICE HERE.

SOURCE OF MONEY:
SOME MONEY IN VARIOUS CURRENCIES WERE DISCOVERED IN BARRELS AT A
FARMHOUSE NEAR ONE OF SADDAM'S OLD PALACES IN TIKRIT-IRAQ DURING A
RESCUE OPERATION, AND IT WAS AGREED BY STAFF SGT KENNETH BUFF AND I
THAT SOME PART OF THIS MONEY BE SHARED BETWEEN 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,
OF WHICH MY BROTHER IN-LAW WAS KILLED BY A ROAD SIDE BOMB LAST TIME.

THE ABOVE FIGURE WAS GIVEN TO ME AS MY SHARE, AND TO CONCEAL THIS KIND
OF MONEY BECAME A PROBLEM FOR ME BUT WITH THE HELP OF A BRITISH
CONTACT WORKING HERE AND WITH HIS OFFICE ENJOYING 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 A BRITISH/AMERICAN MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO DIED IN A RAID
HERE IN IRAQ, AND BEFORE GIVING UP, TRUSTED ME TO HAND OVER THE PACKAGE
TO HIS FAMILY IN UNITED STATES. I HAVE NOW FOUND A VERY SECURED WAY OF
GETTING THE PACKAGE OUT OF IRAQ TO YOU AT HOME FOR YOU TO PICK UP, AND I
WILL DISCUSS THIS WITH YOU WHEN I AM SURE THAT YOU ARE WILLING TO ASSIST
ME AND THAT MY MONEY WILL BE WELL SECURED IN YOUR HAND.

I WANT YOU TO TELL ME HOW MUCH YOU WILL TAKE FROM THIS MONEY FOR THE
ASSISTANCE YOU WILL GIVE TO ME. ONE PASSIONATE APPEAL I WILL MAKE TO YOU
IS NOT TO DISCUSS THIS MATTER WITH ANYBODY, SHOULD YOU HAVE REASONS TO
REJECT THIS OFFER, PLEASE AND PLEASE DESTROY THIS MESSAGE AS ANY
LEAKAGE OF THIS INFORMATION WILL BE TOO BAD FOR THE U.S. SOLDIER'S HERE IN
IRAQ. I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG WE WILL REMAIN HERE, MONTH OF MAY WAS THE
DEADLIEST MONTH FOR US OUT HERE. TOTALY, WE LOST 127 MEN AND I HAVE BEEN
SHOT, WOUNDED AND SURVIVED TWO SUICIDE BOMB ATTACKS BY THE SPECIAL
GRACE OF GOD. THIS AND OTHER REASONS I WILL MENTION LATER HAS PROMPTED
ME TO REACH OUT FOR HELP. I HONESTLY WANT THIS MATTER TO BE RESOLVED
IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH MY PRIVATE
E-MAIL ADDRESS WHICH IS MY ONLY WAY OF COMMUNICATION (E-MAIL
irvinbrown441@gmail.com)

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.


SGT. IRVIN BROWN

Fraudulent E-mail Being Sent on "Behalf" of SSG Irvin Brown

Truthfully, few things get me more upset then someone trying to trick others by playing on
sympathy.  There is an e-mail currently being used to collect personal bank account
information from unsuspecting people which defames the U.S. Army and all who have
served honorably in combat - which really, really makes me MAD.  Sorry it is in ALL CAPS,
but that is the way the message comes.  The text of the message reads as follows:
If you receive this e-mail, please delete it.  It is an absolute fraud.  There are several
variations of this message circulating, but all have a similar story. For more information
about how this fraud works,
view this blog post on ABC.com.

How dare these people use the blood, sweat, and tears of our Veterans to gain sympathy
and perpetrate fraud!  What spineless, cowardly, desperate people they must be...

UPDATE:
Received This E-mail Today on "Behalf" of SGT Andrew I. Bruno

Again, this e-mail is a total fraud.  If you receive it, please delete it immediately.

If you... ummm...  have "advanced" computer skills and would like to track the senders of
these messages, you can download the e-mail header information in text files below.  I
have already sent e-mails to the various abuse desks, but my skills pretty much stop me
there.
