This will probably get deleted, but if anyone woud like to email Sgt Richard Murphy, a US soldier in Baghdad who needs to move $15 million out of Iraq and needs my bank account details, let him know at sgtrichardmurphy@netscape.net

Basically this low-life piece of scum is another Nigerian scam merchant, and Netscape/AOL are painfully slow at shutting down these accounts. So if anyone fancies ensuring our little fraudster has a ton of mail in his inbox in the meantime (ensuring his fraud activities get a lot harder to do) then feel free.

Urgent and Confidential from Sgt Richard Murphy.

Good Day,

I hope my email meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My name is Sgt Richard Murphy, I am in the Military Engineering Unit here Baghdad, Iraq. We have about $15 Million US dollars that we want to move out of the country. My colleagues and I need a good partner, someone we can trust. This is a risk free and legal business (oil money).

But we are moving it through diplomatic means, to send it to your house directly or a bank of your choice using diplomatic courier service. The most important thing is that can we trust you? Once the funds get to you, you take your 50% out and keep our own 50%. Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be kept. Our own part is sending it to you. If you are interested, I will furnish you with more details. The whole process is simple and you must please ensure strict confidentiality at all times.

I look forward to your reply and co-operation, and I thank you in
advance as I anticipate your co-operation. You can reach me on via email: sgtrichardmurphy@netscape.net

Waiting for your urgent response.

Best regards,

Sgt Richard Murphy.

You do realize that sending them an email gives them your email adress, which they'll then use for many more spam attacks?

Surely you don't seriously think this is a real US soldier, do you? It'd certainly be a spectacular way of ensuring a court-martial, that's for definite! Big grin

I get ten of these every day. If I opened a thread for each of them...  Yeah sure

Today, I actually received a rather good one. HTML with some graphic elements, no typos, contained my full real name and claimed that I was next of kin to some oil worker who died in Nigeria, who was also mentioned with full name (same last name, different - German - first name).

Also, it asked if my account details were still correct, then some very realistic account details were mentioned (of course not mine).

The last one I got was about a passenger on the Concorde crash who left behind $14,000,000 USD that needed to be transferred to the US.

I get about three or four of these a day, but for some reason I found this one to be even more offensive than the usual Nigerian oil ministers or widows of Saudi biusinessmen who want to give it all to a Church.

So if anyone knows how to sign up an email address for a porn spam list go right ahead. It was probably the fact that this lowlife Nigerian scammer is trying to impersonate a soldier currently on combat duty that I didn't like.

straight over your head....

however I get the feeling that somehow posing as a US soldier might somehow get him additional victims so if anyone wants to help make it hard for him then off you go..

Go to all the porn sites that you have seen that ask for your email address in return for free membership. Sign him up. He'll start getting hundreds of spam mails per day  Silly

This ones a new variation to me. Its always nice to see fresh material, as otherwise, the scams begin to get a bit like a lot of TV... repetitive.
