Greetings from Iraq – the Old 419 Scam Takes on a New, More Personal Twist

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

“Greetings from Iraq,” the subject line says. What patriotic American, or really any curious person from anywhere, wouldn’t at least give that a glance the first time they see that in their inbox?

That’s exactly what these scammer are counting on. Because a scam it is. Instead of a deposed Nigerian dictator or his mourning widow asking you to help them get money out of Nigeria, it’s “Merrill Melvin Hansley”, a supposed security manager of STE,CCPLUS STORAGE SARL storage company in Iraq.


And he has $25million U.S. dollars for you, just waiting in storage in a safe deposit box.

To make it even all the more compelling, the scammer includes a link to the BBC news site which talks about a “stash of money found in Baghdad” (four years ago), and they include a picture – a real picture – of U.S. Major King holding up the money when it was found.

Of course none of this means that the scam is any less of a scam – it just means that the scammer is a bit more clever than some.

  1. Mine especially irked me b/c they used a fallen soldier’s name–Staff Sgt. Mark Edwards (who died in Iraq in 2005):

    From Sgt.Edwards
    Dear Sir/Madam

    My Name is Sgt.Mark Edwards. I am an American soldier, serving in the US Military of the Army 1st Armored Division in Iraq. I have a very desperate need for your help.I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of US$5.5 million and My Pay Checks , My Awards and Bars of Gold I got at the war zone in that box as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here e-mail me: sgtmarkedward221@gmail.com.for more details.

    Sincerely,
    Sgt.Mark Edwards,
    1AD 1BCT G3,
    IRMO Operations,
    US Army.

    I’m so irked by their audacity that I would love to pass this on to Homeland Security or a similar agency, but I think it would be on the bottom of their list…unless a lot of people are falling for it…

  2. Thank you buddy for responding.

    I am on the move to Afghanistan from Iraq as this will be my final tour. I am currently here in Iraq, saddled with the peace keeping and training of the Iraqi force.

    I probably shouldn’t bother you with this but I am desperate to touch base with someone back home. Naturally, I should be contacting a family member or friend. The only family I got is a sister who is terminally ill and can’t really do much to get this going for me. As for friends, I only had a couple of them in the military. Unfortunately, what I have left are memories of them being fallen heroes of our tours here. Life hasn’t been much to live for with all of the experiences I have been through. No worries, I don’t intend to bore you with all of my sad tales. Above all, I am proud and glad to have serve/defended our great country.

    I was looking up pages of Verizon database and I took a chance to contact you. This is the closest I can get to home.I know you are a total stranger and I am a little unsure if I should go be revealing all of this. This discovery that has been concealed for a long while now and it is a life changing fortune. I thought it was better to take a chance to seek help and get this done or stand the risk of having it forfeited completely. I presently have under custody and in my name a military trunk box of cash containing 20 Million USD. I need to get it stateside asap. Please make no mistake to think this is a hoax. The cash were stashed from findings a long time ago in our missions here. You probably would find it hard to believe but it is the truth. Please read the documented news article of the origin of the funds when it when we discovered it here.

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

    I urgently need a fellow american in Nevada who can assist in having the funds shipped home for safe keeping until I return.

    I hope to provide more clarifications on this after a positive response from you.

    Many thanks.

    Allen

  3. I have to got an e-mail but it is difficult to determine because I cannot find any of the information or the name used anywhere other than the fact that the person is actually a navy blue medal solder. Scott Montoya.

  4. This scam was tried on myself. Not being overly greedy, I felt that something did not ring true. After a few exchanges of emails, I refured to communicate further.

  5. Just got myself my 4th in a week, different variant of this, from, major jones, hmm, original, i think not.

    Hello,

    I contacted you based on the first hand informations I had about you through a (browser on usa residential internet search engine)though my intentions was just seeking for business assistances,but when I saw your email contact something strike my mind to contact you.My name is Major Susan Jones, a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team, which was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of the war in Iraq.I would like to share some highly personal classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.S 1st Armored which was at the fore-front of the war in Iraq.

    Though, I would like to hold back certain information for security reasons for now until you have found the time to visit the BBC website stated below to enable you have an insight as to what I’m intending to share with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest one-way or the other.

    Thanks,

    My Regards

    Major Susan Jones

    Please you scammers are either just way to stupid and cocky, or there are some dumb ass people in this world following for this, which keeps it going,

  6. Thanks for the info.last 2 weeks i received and email from the address of bill_a2002@live.com.Now i know he one of the scammer.here is one of his email.

    Dear Jenny,
    Hope you are fine over there ? I am glad to have your response, It is good we communicate via email as I can say more about myself here and also can check my inbox from time to time even while in the office..when I found your post, I was compelled to contact you as I was certain you are the kind of woman I will like to get to know. I am a bit on the shy side, so you will have to bare with me if I am not too extensive in my emails, although I promise to try. I am a truly nice guy, a warm outgoing individual looking for a soul mate to share all the best of life with. If you want same read on….I’m spontaneous and always ready for the next adventure. I consider myself caring, deeply compassionate and sensitive, yet strong and dependable. I truly believe that if you treat people properly then they will know what is in your heart. I have a few hobbies like cooking, reading, camping, walk by the beach ( with the right one ) and being able to study people and their attitudes without judging them. I love anything that can be done in the outdoors in a nutshell. I like lots of sports but especially golf.

    I am looking for a woman who shares my interests and take me out of my comfort zone once in a while. I would love to meet a sincere woman who might like to consider starting again with a new friend and whatever from there. I am a bit of a busy person all year but always find time for a vacation and would be great to share this time with the woman of my dreams, she doesn’t have to be a supermodel or possess any great talents or abilities, In fact I guess just being yourself is more important than any show we all can put up at an early stage in a relationship. I would really like to meet someone who will put me first in their life so I can do the same for them. Finding the woman who will want to share her life with me in a long term relationship is my top priority. I cant say much now as I only have few minute to be online as I have to go back to work. I am 48 yrs old, divorced with one kid living with my ex. I am Italian American presently working as a contract surgeon with UN joint force in Iraq. At the moment we are running short of doctors here as United State government is presently drafting most of our doctors here in Iraq to Afghanistan and other conflict zones, most doctors are resigning due to the fear of getting killed. I am afraid as they might call on me since some of the doctors rejected the transfer and left since their contract here is due. I do not know what will happen though my contract is completed but I have to submit report before I decide what next to do with my life. I will make out time to write a biography on myself to you so you get to understand more of me. I will have to stop here for now as I cannot coordinate as my mind is not at ease now. I think being able to connect with you will do a great deal and will help in supporting my bid to write a rejection letter against my contract extension, my picture is attached here please do attach yours in your response to me , dear I have got to go now …You take care and keep sweet.

    Best Regards
    Dr.Anderson

    Dear Friend.

    How are you doing?

    Thanks for the details and information about your car info. I learnt that you are a genuine person to deal with. I want to inform you that I will buy your car at your last given price but I have a business proposal for you.

    There was a box that contains Gold and pieces of Jewries including the sum of (16.2Million USD) which I realized during bomb blast that stroke central Iraq as I was going to rescue the bomb victims I saw a box behind me what I did was to carry the box up later I discovered that the content was Gold and pieces of Jewries and cash money worth(16.2 Million Euros) what I did was I went to deposit the box with Courier Security Company for safe keeping purpose, as case may be I have called for deployment into your country military Camp for three and half years and I need your help to assist me to receive my box that contains sum 10.2Million USD as I states above once you have agreed I will register the box in your name as your family inheritance then I will move the box to you in your place since I am still under uniform person I can not be parading with such money as we are prohibited by International Organization such as UNITED NATION AND IMF by making use of cash money while we are in active service the order was approved by Security Department act since UN Government is taking absolute care of all the soldiers here.

    For that reason I decided to give you 30% while I take 70% since I cannot move the box by myself, I don’t have any option than to seek for your permission so that I will register the box in your name as the beneficiary and move it to you through diplomatic Delivery Service under Immunity means.

    I am a captain with the United Nations troop in Iraq, on war against terrorism. I have an urgent proposition involving an investment initiative in your country’s economy to discuss with you, it will be of mutual benefit for both of us and I believe you can handle it once we have a common understanding and mutual cooperation in the execution of the modalities. Like I said above, I work with US Air Defence Artillery Company Task Force here in Fallujah Northern Iraq. Should you be interested, please email back to me.

    And I must assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free and you have nothing to fear about as you are under immunity coverage.
    Hence you are interested I will give directives on exactly how the deal could be accomplished accurately.

    I await your earliest response.

    Best Regards.

    Capt,Adams Donald.

  8. I recieved this one today..

    Dear Friend,

    I know this email will come as a surprise to you although it is with good motive. Before i go any further, I want to share more about myself. My name is Captain Williams John Taylor from Morton Grove, Illinois United States. I am an American Citizen currently serving in Afghanistan. I formally served in Baghdad Iraq in 2003. I’m 47yrs old and I am an only child of both parents. My dad was a US marine before he passed away. My mom was a stay at home mom and she passed away in October 1st 2007.

    The reason i contacted you is that, i want you to help me receive a consignment (Box) that i deposited with a security company in Baghdad Iraq, The consignment (Box) contains 10million dollars. Please note that the security company does not know that the box contains money. I listed it as containing family belongings.. Anyway i think i should tell you how i came into possession of this money. In 2003, I was the one commanding the US 3rd Infantry Division in Baghdad, Iraq. On our raids of 23 and 26 April 2003 in Baghdad, we came across a huge amount of money in containers. Please visit

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm for confirmation of this story. After we discovered the money, me and five other officers hide some part of the money that we discovered and returned the rest to US Central command..

    I am going to be posted to your Location in the coming months so i will be most thankful to God if you can receive the consignment from the security company on my behalf. I am offering you 3million while 6million is for me, then the remaining 1million for Charity Organization. I do pray and hope you are a honest person as i strongly believe honesty is the basis of any meaningful relationship.

    Note: All the documents used in lodging the consignment (Box) with the security Company are all in my possession. l will send them to you as soon as you show
    your willingness to assist me in receiving the consignment from the security company.

    Let me know if you are interested so i can give you more details..

    Thanks and God bless you.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Capt. Williams

  9. Sgt.Narlin Andrei jumped on the band wagon – “I am desperately in need of assistance” Just think, REAL men give their lives to protect scum like this

  10. The new one: Thanks for your mail; I am not surprise at you if you doubted my sincerity. If I were in your shoes, I know that I might probably feel the same way too. This is just a life time opportunity, which I do not want to slip off my hands, reason why I have consulted your assistance to help me pull this through, so that the funds can be moved into the United States, in form of money meant for investment in the Real Estate business. At the moment, the funds have been securely moved out of Iraq to a safe Private Security and Finance company in Europe, and all that needs to be done now, is to have this funds dully registered in your name as the beneficiary, so that you can get in contact with the Private Security and Finance Company in Europe, to discuss with them on the best possible way to which you may have the funds released to you, I want you to know here that we both stand to gain a lot at the end of the day, I also want you to know here that I lost my wife and parent six years ago, and it was when I was going through Google search to find my classmate that I came about your email, this was why I contacted you for assistance, I want to promise you here that I will never do anything that will hurt you or your family likewise myself, and I also want you to know that if am caught am definitely going to be Court Martial, I was not planning of involving any body in this transaction, I was planning that once I get back to the state, I will handle this on my own because I was planning of Retiring from the army once I get back to the state this year, but unfortunately for me, the Director of the Private Security and Finance Company was mounting pressure on me to forward the name of the beneficiary to him, so that the funds can be tagged to a name, for immediate clearance for release, else the authorities may confiscate it to the coffers of the government, all I need now so that the funds can be move to the state are as follow.

    Your full name and address

    Your phone and fax numbers

    Any valid identity of yours

    I will also like to know what you do for living.

    Also, note that upon completion and transfer of the funds into your possession, I will need you to assist me invest part of the funds in the real estate industry there in the state, and also part for charity Organization, as that is my wish. Note that I have decided to share whatever return derived from the investment of our own share of the funds in the real estate business with you on a 50/50 basis, outside the initial agreed 15% I wish to offer you for your assistance. I appreciate your decision to partake in this transaction with me and be rest assured that we would be together soon for further investment as regards the Real Estate business in the state.

    I want you to note that the funds were moved from Iraq to the Private Security and Finance Company in Europe, with the assistance of a friend, who also is in the army with me here, who has a direct link with one of the director of the Private Security and Finance Company in Europe. It is with his assistance that the Director of the Private Security and Finance Company assisted me to move the funds, out of Iraq, to the Private Security and Finance Company, and the funds were actually moved via diplomatic coverage. So, at the moment, the funds are not in the name of any person in particular, which may make the financial authorities suspicious, and as result of this, the Director of the Private Security and Finance Company has been mounting pressure on me to forward the name of the beneficiary to him, so that the funds can be tagged to a name, for immediate clearance for release, else the authorities may confiscate it to the coffers of the government, I thought I was coming home this month, if no one comes for it. Right now, I have been given before the end of this month to produce the beneficiary to the funds; else the funds will be confiscated.

    Once again, I would require you to confirm to me your Information to me, to enable me prepare the documents as required. This will enable me prepare all the necessary Legal documents in your name as the beneficiary to the funds, as well as enhance further correspondence and to certify the peaceful conclusion of this transaction. I will l be expecting your response in earnest, am only having this opportunity to mail you from military hospital here in Iraq, and I don’t know what to do now ,with what I understand the consignment is kept at the Holding Bay in United Kingdom, and if you can travel to United Kingdom it will be ok by me, since I will be coming home September this year, please try and get back to me ASAP.

    Please do respond back as soon as possible.

    My best regards,
    Ret. Sgt.Timothy

  11. A copy of the e-mail I received, I strongly suspect it is related to this scam!!

    Hello,

    My name is Sgt Billy White a United States Army and a member of the USARPAC Medical Team that was stationed in Baghdad,Iraq.
    I want to share important information about my experience while serving with the U.S
    1st Armored here in Iraq that would be of mutual benefit to us.
    I however cannot reveal all the information now due to the fact that we have not yet agreed to cooperate in this mutually
    beneficial enterprise. In other words.
    I am constrained to hold back some information for security reasons for now,
    until you have find the time to visit the BBC website links below
    to enable you have an insight into what I intend to share with you.
    hoping that the information contained there will pique your interest one way or the other,
    US Soldiers have been evacuated from Iraq in line with Mr. President’s directive
    I am among the 50,000 US soldiers left behind to train Iraqi soldiers, Please view the bbc news website below;

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

    I must confess that I am very uncomfortable sending this message to you as I cannot predict your reaction,
    you may misconstrue the importance and decide to go public, which will be rather unfortunate. With the worse in mind,
    I have to say that the essence of this message is strictly for mutual benefit.
    I will be more explicit upon a response from you. Please respond with a confirmation that you have visited the website
    and that you are keen on learning more.

  12. Here is the second letter to this chain. It looks like it’s out of HK, Hong Kong. The email was: anita.kirk48@yahoo.com.hk.

    1. Full Name 2. Address 3.Occupation 4.Age
    U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team Reply.

    Dear ,

    Thanks for your quick response to my email. I do assure you that you and i stand to gain enormously from this deal if we both receive the cooperation desired for the success of transaction of this nature.

    You are not sending any money to me expenses here in iraq will be cover by me before the consignment arrive.

    As i stated in my first email to you I am a citizen of the United States and i was born in Manhattan in 1975. As a young girl i was a curious child. I lived in fantasy world half the time, and the other half i lived in a real fantasy world, the noisy streets of the upper west side Manhattan, NYC. After obtaining my qualification as a nurse i decided to enlist into the army. I am a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team. I am a qualified nurse by training. I have been in Iraq since the beginning of the war. In the few years i have been here working in the medical team, i have been a witness to a lot of sad, horrific, mean and wicked action perpetuated by terrorist, religious bigots and militants. I am working on a book that would detail my experience when i eventually retire.

    I have received several postings while here in Iraq. This is also my third posting to Iraq. I am in the final year of my most recent posting. It is the most recent posting that has landed me a good fortune which i intend to share with you. After about 2months in the new house i was allocated i noticed that there was a hidden door in the wardrobe that leads to an underground cellar. What i discovered in the underground cellar was quite revealing. I discovered three containers stashed with United States dollars. Ever since this discovery i have been unable to concentrate as i have been confused on the exact action to take. I have informed no one. I do not intend to inform the authority. I intend to help myself. I have been weighing a lot of options on how best to make these funds my own without the knowledge of the authority.

    As you must be aware the American troops in Iraq have served with distinction. There is strict observance to rules and ordinance. There is also a systematic probing and investigation of all troops to make sure that there are no unlawful activities. We are trained to report any suspicious movement involving anybody that might tarnish the image of America. Because of this singular fact it has been very difficult for me to tell any one nor spend a dollar out of the money. I have tried to carry on as if all is well with me.

    I have decided to act after two months because i just found out that i might soon be re-deployed out of my present location. If this happens without me taking action on the money i have discovered, i will ever live to regret my inaction as it is an opportunity for me to be financially solvent for ever. I need your help in order to make this a reality.

    I have a patient who is a diplomat. I have known him for over a year. We are fond of each other. I have had extensive discussions with him on helping me transport some goods abroad. He has agreed in principle to help me. The reason why i am bringing a diplomat into it is that diplomats have immunity. Whatever they carry or transport across countries are covered by diplomatic immunity. It cannot be searched or opened by anybody been it customs, police or secret service. The goods are often covered with diplomatic seal. The goods will get to its destination without problems. Please be informed that i will not tell the diplomat the real content of the containers. The diplomat will deliver the containers to you.

    Using the diplomat make this process completely risk free. The worst scenario is that the diplomat will be sent back with the baggage if there is any suspicion. He cannot be arrested, the goods cannot be impounded. He will merely be returned to the country he is coming from.

    This is where you come in. Your duties or responsibility will be to receive the containers which contains the money from the diplomat. You are to keep it safely until i come to meet with you were we will discuss the terms for sharing and engage in partnership while investing.

    I need someone i can trust, someone i can rely on. Someone who will be truthful, frank and honest. Someone who will agree to assist me and be involved throughout the period the process will last. Someone i can count on to act as a genuine and an interested party. I want you to go through this email careful and get back to me. We can begin to discuss further details once i hear from you through email.

    For utmost confidentiality i will appreciate that all our communication are done through email. No Phone call yet.

    Best regards,

    Cpt. Anita Kirk.

  13. I haven’t read the chain of comments so apologies if this has already been posted or if I’m already off-topic.

  14. I have been chatting with someone calling themselves Robert Anderson, robert001455@yahoo.com claiming to be a military surgeon stationed in Iraq. After two days he was declaring how much he loved me and how god had told hime I was the one he was to spend the rest of his life with and become a mother to his orphaned son! There followed many different requests for me to send him large sums of money, varying from paying for him to come visit me, to paying his commanding officer to let him have leave, to buying him out of the army, to finally helping him with his ‘secret’ as follows….Dear Love,

    Honey it is important that you know this secret as you are the only one that can help me in this, its is important for our future(me,you and Mark) . Mark is not being sidelines at all, he is too young for this and he is currently in the state. The last time he emailed me, he told me he is looking forward to meeting you and based on the what I told him about you will like you to fill the void his mother left in his life.

    Honey the secret I am about to tell you is meant to be a secret and it is important you keep it to yourself. You will find attached my recent picture and a picture of me with dollar bills( May look awkward but read on).

    During my years here in Iraq while saving people life, I and my colleagues discovered a huge box. we took the box to our base and decide to check what was inside, it was a big surprise when we found out that the box contains money.

    Like you know it has been happening for ages during times of war there is always something called spoils of war. This is considered a spoil of war, Its has been happening all these years in the United Nation Military, it is a well guarded secret and it is revealed only to our wives. Other soldiers have sent their own share to their wives and I kept my own with a Safety Security Company here in Ishal, Baghdad.

    Now that I have gained your trust and honesty, I think its time for me to let you know about this, because I have no other person that can do this for me, I only have you and my son, I have suffered for so many years for this and I believe you are my love and my future wife.

    I seek advice from one of our retired soldier who have done this before and he gave me two options that can be used to get the money to you and the contacts of each person involved in the options. And the options are as follows:

    1. You are to contact a UN Military Diplomatic Shipment Agent, who have been working with the military for 28 years now with no problem, he goes to the war countries and help soldier deliver their achievements to the front door of their wives. You are to contact him and tell him that your husband, General Surgeon Rubel Anderson who has a parcel with the Safety Security Company in Ishal, Baghdad. That you want him to go there and have the parcel delivered to your front door, and this is urgent. Don’t let him know that the parcel contains money.

    2. You are contact a Military Lawyer who has been doing this as well for many years without no problem. You will tell him that your husband, General Surgeon Rubel Anderson who has a parcel with the Safety Security Company in Ishal, Baghdad and that the parcel contains money. You will ask him what and what will you need to setup an Online Account for you so that the money can be deposited in the Online banking Account and you will have access to the online account and you will be able to transfer the money to your account in the UK gradually. And let him know that is is very urgent.

    Honey, I want to let you know that is completely legitimate and you have nothing to worry about, I will never put you in danger. I would have love to do this myself but the only problem we are having here is that we are not allowed to take anything out a war country nor are we allowed to make calls or do financial transactions. This is why I want you to do this for me. You have to choose the best option that is convenient for you and let me know then I will give you the contact of either the lawyer or the Diplomatic Shipment agent based on your chosen option.

    Honey, this money is meant amongst other thing to setup the Charity Foundation I told you about for helping war veterans. The money is meant for furthering the cause you know I am Passionate about and I know you support this too. As you know these people have lost a lot while defending our country and we can never repay them for there loss. I want you to stand by me in this and I know Mark will stand by me too.

    Honey , once you have this money with you, I will be coming to the UK and I can’t wait to have you in my arms. This our love is booming and i know we shall be together soon and our love will manifest into reality. I will be patient waiting for an urgent response from you.

    With Love and Heartfelt Admiration.

  15. Greetings,

    I know you would be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you. My name is Capt. Anita Kirk , a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team, which was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of the war in Iraq.

    I would like to share some highly personal classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.S 1st Armored which was at the fore-front of the war in Iraq.

    Though, I would like to hold back certain information for security reasons for now until you have found the time to visit the BBC website stated below to enable you have an insight into what I intend sharing with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest one-way or the other.

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

    Also, could you get back to me having visited the above website to enable us discuss in a more clarifying manner to the best of your understanding.

In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this message is strictly for mutual benefit between you and I and nothing more.

    I will be vivid and coherent in my next message in this regards, meanwhile, could you send me an email confirming that you have visited the site and thatyou have understood my intentions? I will like you to get back to me with with the following information,

    1. Full Name
    2. Address
    3.Occupation
    4.Age

    I do not need your telephone number because i cannot call you, we can only communicate through email.

    I am surprised that scams still exist, here is one I received today.
    I will await your thoughts via my email.
    Thanks,

  17. Hi everyone, it’s Doreen again! In my comments today, I am including all the names that I was given to pay money to, the so called Doctor that told me of Sgt. Benson Casey Ramos’s accident and to advise you of another scam involving the US military!
    First of all there is a new scam. A so called SSgt. Nicholas Williams of the 3rd infantry now serving in Iraq! He needs assistance to move 12 million USDollars! Pisses me off that these are still running, just changing names!!!

    As I have said before.I was writting to a Sgt.Benson Ramos, suppose to be serving in Iraq for 5 months! During that time, he had me get in touch with ts2militaryconnectiondpm@usa.com! Write to TS2,pay the connection costs and we will be able to chat on the phone as husband and wife! Well stupid me did!
    I paid via Western Union $533.44 Australian Dollars to a Melissa J Kern of Springfield, Ohio!!! I was told by TS2 that we will be connected right after they acknowledge, which after a couple of days, we were talking on the phone, Benson and I!
    Then after a while of that, all he wanted to do was come and see us in Australia. That he already used his month allocated leave, that I would have to apply for additional leave and apply to his superior, General Raymond T Odierno (gen.raymonodierno2@consultant.com while he was there for the General Parade. So I did, mentioned how much trouble I was having with my daughter at the time and he seemed only to glad and sympathetic to my needs! He enclosed an email address for me to apply fo leave of Sgt.BensonRamos! (usmilitaryaffiars1@diplomats.com)
    When I wrote to them, military affairs,they replied and told me that I had to remit some money, that it was to be held and then fully refunded when the officer was with me for 5 days, that we would be visited by another officer to confirm his safe arrival here in Australia! So stupidly I believed everything I was told, especially because at the bottom of every email said: Military Affairs Department, Multi-National Corps-Iraq,Public Affairs Office,Camp Victory, APO AE 09342! On the 28th of June I sent $3,353.44 Australian Dollars, to the name they gave me, Sarah Antrim, Ansonia,Connecticut, that was just to get everything started!
    Then I was issued with a garantee moneyback certificate! Followed by another request to pay someone else, to finalise the Transit process of the officer, Sgt.Benson Ramos! So again, down to Western Union,this time I had to pay a James Gauf,Elroy,Wisconsin the sum of $2,568.33 Australian Dollars! Only when I returned home from doing that, received an update from Military Affairs, please pay Anthony Hilton of Astatula, Florida as the officer I was meant to pay had been transfered somewhere else!!! I emailed them promptly and informed them that I had already paid it before I got the update and that it was up to them to sort it out!
    It took a few days but they did email me back with the leave certificate and said that the Notary Stamp that Sgt Benson Ramos needed to leave the duty zone had been stamped!
    Military Affairs then emailed me of a false booking, plane and flight number! I got very upset and abusive, told to watch what I say to them and to watch my language!
    In the meantime, I lost my daughter to Suicide, emailed everyone that he had given me details for! The General, Military Affairs, Shawn and Kate Ramos,believed to be his mother and father (shawn-ramos129@yahoo.com). I got a reply from the General and military affairs but none from Benson or his folks!
    3 days later, I received an email from a Doctor Nicholas Smith with the federal medical hospital in Iran! 2 photo’s of a wrecked car were attached! He said that he had found my details on a Benson Ramos, that he had been in a serious accident and was in a coma with severe damage to his leg, the officer that was driving was killed instantly! Ben was lucky to be alive, he said!
    I replied as I told him that I had waited for over 4 hours at the Perth International Airport for him and he never showed! Told him of my daughters death. He told me that he was sure that Benson was going to be okay!
    Military Affairs also said the same after I pleaded with them to return the funds, so I could afford my daughters funeral arrangements, but they replied with, they will be refunded when Benson arrives!
    Then I received and email, we are very sorry, but Sgt. Benson Ramos has passed away, that I was to let them know if the address they had for me was correct. Which I did, because he apparently listed me as next of kin! I am still waiting, to this day
    I believe this to be a group SCAM, as with all these names and different states in the USA but to also use a reputable person such as General Raymond T Odierno or to impersonate him, is very fraudulent and they or he should be HUNG for that!!!
    Another lady has since come forward, receiving identical emails from Sgt.Benson Ramos. Thank god, she has not yet handed over any funds to this man as it is very new with him right now but that she is willing to help me in putting me in touch with the right autorities, to deal with these crooks and SCAM artists!
    If anyone else out there is suffering as well, please find me on Facebook. Doreen

  18. I,and several other women,have been contacted by sgtjohnricky@yahoo.com via Facebook. Another scam artist. He hasn’t asked me for money as yet but has with some of the others. He preys on single women—-usually Christians.

  19. Hello everyone! Thanks to this site and posting my comment, I have been contacted by another lady, who is going through the same with this man!
    I would like to upload a photo of Sgt. Benson Ramos! I have since become aware that I am not the only one this man is doing this to! Please tell me how I can show him.

  20. Thank you so very much for your site. It has helped me tremendously although it has never got back the £4000 I gave to Dr Anderson in Iraq through Dr Dywar.
    There are many scammers and many say they have given up scamming since meeting you – please do not believe it – it is just another one of their scams. Lila

  21. I have been writing to a Sgt. Benson Ramos currently serving in Iraq with the US, for quite sometime! I was asked to pay TS2 military connections over $415 USDfor him to call me on the phone, which I did. We got to know one another very well and fell in love. I was having problems at home with my daughter at the time but yet he managed to send me flowers, chocolates and teddy bears to cheer me up! In the end we were like husband and wife, he even started talking to my very young sons on the phone and they even called him dad! Then I was asked to write to military affairs, camp victory in Iraq to see if he could get approval for an extended leave to help us here in Australia! They told me that they approved him for 12 weeks leave, beginning on the 12th july 2010 and that I would have to remit some money for the transit process of Sgt Benson Ramos to me and that once he has been here, the safe arrival of the officer, they would fully refund all that I have paid, including the fee’s involved, totalling $6,000 AUD. On the 20th of July he apparently had a vehicle accident on his way to Tehran airport to fly to me! The officer driving died instantly but Benson was in a coma in hospital, in Iran!
    On the 22nd of July, my daughter committed suicide! I pleaded for military affairs to refund the money I had paid as they promissed but had no luck with them what so ever. All I wanted was my money to pay for my daughters funeral costs!
    I just received an email from them stating that Sgt Benson Ramos has died from his injuries and that I was listed as next of kin! I am still waiting to get the money back that I paid but I somehow doubt it!
    If anyone out there knows of whom you send all correspondence to for investigation, I would appreciate it very much!

  22. My e-mail came from Cpt. Daniela N. Marshall, a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team.
    Its a good thing that our real officers are honest people and turned in the money they found. My son was in the 82nd and I am very proud of him.
    So if you get e-mails such as this, the old saying is still true: If its too good to be true, it usually is.

  23. By the way here are two accomplices:

    Contact Name: Ghulam Flaider
    Telephone Number: +447700022862
    E-mail Address: ghulam.flaider@live.com

    He is claiming that he’s from UNOPS and the other diplomat who’s name is Tom Williams (wow Williams is indeed a famous name…lol) +447599457751…this guy keeps on calling me and asking when will he send the box…what tick me off is that their stories doesn’t add up and this Ghulam used someones passport to introduce himself and from the passport he is from from middle east but when I spoke to him he’s got an african accent so that draw my suspicion…Unfortunately I sent my ID so he might be using my ID to introduce himself or others…What a cheap way to earn a living…Can anyone please catch this a****les…please feel free to e-mail me for suggestions ect., thanks…

  27. I just received an email just like the ones that are posted here… ireply them if it is legal then i m intrested…. Here is a copy of the email:
    Dear Friend,
    Thank you for your response. There is no risk what so ever as regards this money but,the most important thing is that I do not want this
    money to go through the bank around here as It will not be safe for us. I have a very good, trusted and reliable diplomatic courier contact
    used mostly by our forces in Jordan, that can send goods easily through diplomatic and private military procedures to anywhere in the world
    without them being checked at any port of entry.They can deliver this money for you easily, to any address of your choice.

    The baggage will be tagged as personal effects and covered with a diplomatic coverage consignment trunk box, and the courier company will
    not know the contents of the boxes. A few friends have used this means to convey goods without being checked because of the diplomatic
    coverage system. Their charges are very high but i will negotiate a way out from this end, till it gets to your door step anywhere and I
    will follow up immediately and meet with you for disbursement after you have received it.

    I am very sure you will know the best way to handle this money for us, when it gets to your base. Please let me have an address where you
    want them to deliver the goods to you. It could be a bank address or your Company address. As soon as I get it,i will start making
    arrangements as to sending the merchandise to you.

    Your Direct Phone number is needed, so you can be contacted as soon as Shipment is in Motion. I will send the total funds since I can not
    take any chances by keeping cash on me. Your percentage stands at 30% of the total funds.Meanwhile i will like to know What you do for a
    living? Are you married with kids? Can you handle these funds?I will also want to see your passport copy or id/driver’s License, so I can
    know who i am dealing with.We need to build trust okay?The only people that knew about this are just my partners and i.Please if you know
    that you are not capable of handling this huge sum, please don’t allow me to send it,i can always find other means of dealing with this.You
    can also see this link below for you to have a clue of what I am talking about.

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

    You know that the security of this is very important, you can not trust anybody therefore note that this transaction is not safe on the
    phone,remember to keep it secret.I cannot call you on the phone or receive fax. The total sum amount in the box is $21.500,000 Million
    United States Dollars and I hope that you can handle it? I hope you are okay with this?Everything must be done by email until the funds
    get’s to your possession.I hope you understand me?I need your urgent reply in this regard.

    Best Regard
    Capt Gordon Taylor

  28. I’ve had a slightly different experience but realise that it’s coming from the same source no doubt. The supposed UN officer in Iraq contacted me through wayn.com a travel site and spent 5 months emailing and chatting to me – building up the relationship etc; Even sending me flowers on my birthday. Yesterday I received a similar message about funds being sent from Iraq – I guess they are getting a bit cleverer. I saw instantly when I had the mail the scam, but I must say the weeks of chatting although some things didn’t really fit and match up, it was quite convincing. Story about being half South African and Scottish – life story… experience some of it a bit far fetched, being shot to get sympathy etc but still on the whole the discussions could have been convincing.

  29. I just received an email just like the ones that are posted here. Here is a copy of the email:

    Greetings,

    I’m Sgt. Allen Richardson, a US serviceman currently on tour in Iraq.

    I’m in dire need of your assistance. I’m taking a chance to contact you though I do not know you. I got your contact from an online survey journal.
    I am making a concealed request to you for an assistance to retrieve some funds (totaling US$5.5 Million) for safe keeping and personal investment projects. A part of which is also intended for charity.

    The money in question was discovered here in Iraq. Please find more info on this by following the web link below:

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

    I plan to keep this confidential and will provide more info when I hear from you. I’m proposing 20% of the funds to you for your assistance.
    Please email me via my secured email address (allenrich1965@gala.net)

    Regards,

    Sgt. Allen Richardson

  39. I’ve got out of office replies from people who have received this scam from my email address. I haven’t sent it, I am not a marine, I am not American, I have never been to Iraq and I most certainly don’t have access to 25 million USD. I’ve run a virus scan and the results are clear. Does anyone have any idea how or why my name and email address has been used for this scam?

  40. Be aware of the scammer Dywar@consultant.com and Tock.williams@yahoo.com Olsonnbrown@yahoo.con LLoyd Ford. from .UK They are allianace scammer teamwork from Ghana. The story was he ‘s US soldier in Iraq and about to come home. Just be careful. They will get punish by God soon.

  41. Just a little note to people.
    Don’t bother replying to these scams, even to insult them.If you do, then they know that your email address works, and can make money selling it to other spammers and scammers.

  42. I have been in chat with a Robert Anderson who claims to be a surgeon, from Global Health USA, serving in Iraq and guess what ? He has shared info with me regarding money needing to be shipped out and wanted my help !! He’s convincing I shall give him that much !

  43. I just received the same e-mail, (I know you would be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you before…. etc) but the funny thing is, she is using the name Brenda Scarborough
    The reason why this is funny? She sent me another scam e-mail with the same name a week ago, saying I was willed money and someone else was trying to claim it, and to reply ASAP! I ignored that one and got another from Brenda saying since I didnt reply, there is rumor I am dead, and to PLEASE REPLY to prove I am alive to claim my money.. ignored that one too, she sent more updates, and I found the ongoing storyline she was creating to be very amusing with every update.
    Now I received an e-mail of the Iraq scam from her, same name and e-mail..only now she is a soldier in Iraq who found money
    Guess she is trying out a new scam wonder if she will move to the dating scam next

  44. OMG! I JUST RECEIVED A LETTER FROM SOME SGT. John T. England. IT SAID THE FOLLOWING, Greetings,

  53. I got talking to a Captain Robertson Gibbs online (on a dating site) who claimed to be in Afghanistan with the RAF – after a while he asked me to be his ‘beneficiary’ for ‘military benefit funds’ without which he could not leave the camp. I received an e mail with a form to complete from ‘raffinances’. I would be required to hold on to these funds until he came back to the Uk. Naturally I told him to get lost but he included the link mentioned and I have no doubt that this is another scam. Anyone else had something similar??

  54. This was sent to me and they responded to me daily.

  55. I had a love letter from US Marine Soldier who is posted in Multi-National Corps in Camp Victory Iraq. At first I believed him, buth then I started to think that this might be a scam letter. He also told me about this treasure. He will send this money through Diplomatic Corps and I had to pay some money to release the package. This marine guy’s name is Chris Jones. I’m not sure about his rank.

  56. I met a so-called American serviceman serving in Iraq who corresponded and then asked if I would do a favour and I did, I paid £4000 cash for his container to be addressed to me from a security compound. Dr Robert Anderson was, he claimed, a surgeon.
    How can I find out if this is true. The diplomat was a Dr Ricky Dywar, Baghdad.

  57. I paid £4000 to Diplomat in Iraq to release an American surgeon, Dr Robert Anderson’s container from security compound. I wonder is he a real surgeon or someone posing as him.

  58. I just received a email from Sgt. Collin John,
    American soldier with Swiss background, army’s 3rd infantry division it also mentions a staff Sgt Kenneth Buff. They are persistant and inventive liars aren’t they.

  59. These people are pathetic scum. I got a similar email from Sgt. Henry Rolex :

  60. WTF I am SGT William Curtis!!! I wish I knew about the money haha I was in Baghdad last year darn my luck

  61. I got the same letter from a Sgt John Collin so I answered him……

    Dear Sgt. Collin,

    First of all I don’t believe you are a soldier, if you were you would not discredit your fellow soldiers or your Country with such a plan. I have served in both Iraq and Vietnam and I’ll tell you right now this makes me sick to see people like you posing as an American Soldier.

    If by some chance you really are a Soldier turn in the money and saver what little dignity you have left……..As an American Soldier we are not thiefs nor do we ever want other countries to think such a thing…….it is not your money it belongs to the people of Iraq, as for your comment about living in a Hellhole, you volunteered to do this job, so do it right……if you were to take this money you will never be able to look at yourself in a mirror again and call yourself an AMERICAN. Make the right decision

    Yours Truley

    An American

  62. my email gets bombarded with these stupid scams everyday is there any way to stop them from getting to my email address??? my scams for the day are from martinsscott100@yahoo.in and millspeople@paradise.net.nz

  63. I received the same scam on 9/8/08 from PVT Richard Taylor with email address rtaylor@mcom.com

  64. i just receive the e mail i cant believe that this is still appening in the world, please say a prayer for this kind of people.

    from chihuahua mexico.

  65. i contact capt scott j wright he is scamer thief from nigeria so beware of him or any one eles and he took from some one about 60,000.00 usd he is from uae and capt scott i take his phone after i send to him and his phone is+8821644447729 it’s thuryra mobile
    thanks

  66. typo, sorry ’bout that, its the “82nd airborne” a well renowned unit that deserves better than my fat fingers mistyping its name.
    “gunner”

  67. “the Engineering Unit of US Military”
    —————–
    its pretty obvious the the scammer knows sweet bugger all about the structure of the u.s. army to begin with. its also a safe bet that the major from the 62nd airborne has nothing to do with the scam, the pic is from a news report at the time the money and paper was found and turned in per standard procedure in the u.s. forces.
    “gunner”

  68. i got that same email but it was sent by Capt. Scott J. Wright of the
    Engineering Unit of US Military

    how could i stop from getting these?

  69. you can slice them, you can dice them, but a 419 scam is still the lamest way to con people out of money. P brains that follow for these scams pretty much deserve to be scammed, if anything for being stupid and greedy. Sorry, i call them as i see them.

  70. Okay, I clued in to finding the tucked away featured links. And the Iraq variation is good to know about. But where’s the “funny reading of scam letter” link? That’s what I most wanted to see. Maybe I’ll check YouTube.

  71. You’re absolutely right, and the error has been fixed. It’s doubly bad as we *should* have caught it, my being a veteran of the U.S. Army myself, and all. Thank you for catching that.
