Default Nigerian email scam V 2.0 - U.S. Marine in Afghanistan scam

I actually just got this in my email. :P I'll add '[]' so that the email is inactive.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi there,

How are you doing today? I am Williams Barnes, a US Marine currently serving in Afghan. I got your email from a business directory and I believe that you will maintain the level of confidence and trust that this mission I am about to inform you of require. Several months ago, my unit discovered some abandoned cash in the mansion of a militant ruler during a covert military raid. The total cash we discovered was $11.5 Million USD. We stashed all the funds in one trunk box and moved it secretly out of Iraq to Kuwait for safekeeping. We waited for several months to ensure that nobody is on our trail. Now, we need to move the money out of Kuwait. I am contacting you because we need your assistance in receiving the box for us on our behalf, and securing the cash until we return home from service.

Please note that we cannot use any of our known relative or friend for this mission because they are listed as acquaintance on our military file and this will compromise the covertness of this mission.

In order to proceed with this mission, we need the following details from you.

1. Your Full name
2. The address where you want the box to be delivered 3. Your private telephone number where you can be reached 24 hours

If for some reasons you don't want to or can't help us, I want you to delete this message immediately and assume we never had this conversation. However, if you are going to fully cooperate with us in this transaction, we will compensate you with 25% of the total cash after the mission is accomplished. Like I said earlier, we are a GO and waiting for your response. This is a very serious deal and I wouldn't be asking for your help if I am not convinced that this is not going to bring any harm to you or your family, or put you in a risky position. We have worked the kinks out and am very convinced this is gonna be successful.

Once we get a positive response from you with the info requested, we will proceed into the next step and I will give you further instructions. I hope I can rely on your sense of discretion. Write back soon buddy.

In God we trust,

Bill

I get these damn things all the time from Africa, Asia, Britain, Europe, but not one from a supposedly Marine...yet...I notified the Dallas Office of the FBI and they said they were aware, to just ignore them and delete. That sounds like good advice, the spam stopper catches a lot of them...

Wouldn't it be funny if someone emailed w/ their name/address and actually received a box-o-$400million? Scammer FAIL!

Ah, anyway, better play the lotto... pretty much the same damn thing.

Should have told him to come in and wait for the check while you call the police.

guess what infantrymarine.com shows:

The RIPE record has been changed A LOT which may or may not mean anything, but it's funny that the server is in the UK yet it's supposed to be a US based site. Sure it could happen, but if 90% of your visitors are from one country, you're better off having the server in that country too to limit hops (especially sat connections like the hop from 5 to 6 at the top shows) and load times.

The contact info listed for George Daly and Mark Wood is for the hosting company, not the website owner. Perhaps contacting them may help take the site offline or get them to put a warning up stating that it's a scam. It would also help them out because their server and IP range is going to be blacklisted which can be a very grueling and expensive task to undo. I wonder if they know their server is being used for spam?


So yeah, watch yourselves!!!!
