This email with the subject "Fwd: MY PLIGHT IN IRAQ AS AMERICAN SOLDIER." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 11 Sep 2008 14:37:32 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was, although it may have been spoofed.

As disgraceful as it is, I received this today, ironically on one of our Nation's saddest anniversaries. Please check into this and find out who would have the gall to send something like this.

How is everything going, I hope great?Though i have not considered this medium
to be the best manner to have approached you on this issue being that the
internet has been greatly abused over the recent years and is very unsecured
for information's of vital importance. I have decided to take the chance
seeing that no other means could have been faster and more efficient than the
E-mail. I write to you irrespective of the fact you do not know me, but please
do consider this letter as a request from a brother in need of assistance. 

My name is Sgt. Darren James(Sgt)an American soldier, 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, it will come worst now Saddam 
Hussein was executed. During one of our rescue Mission we came across a safe 
that contains the total sum of $21,000,000 (Twenty one Million Us Dollars)
that belongs to the revolutionaries, which I believe they use in buying
weapons and ammunition's, 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
events that took place here:
Out of the total fund my share was $8,000,000 (Eight Million US Dollars).I am
seeking FOR your assistance to evacuate my share of the money, which is
$8,000,000 out of here to you, in as much as you can assure me that my own
share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no
stolen money,and there are no dangers involved, as I have made arrangements
with a UN representative based in Asia who promised to deliver the
US$2,500,000.00 (Two Million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) on final
conclusion of this project,while the rest shall be for me for my 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, which prompted me to reach out for help because I
will be migrating to you to invest and start a new life not as a soldier
anymore.Please if this proposal is acceptable by you, 

kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your 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 by the diplomat and he will make a contact with you
before anything move. Waiting for our urgent reply.

Best regards, 

Sgt. Darren James.
