A Scam Email with the Subject "awaiting your urgent response" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 09 Oct 2010 13:41:40 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "gen. william wallace"<willmws@att.net>, although it may have been spoofed.

My name is General William S. Wallace, the former United States Army Training and Doctrine Command 
(TRADOC).
 
Actually, I acquired 17.3 Million US Dollars from an oil business I did in Iraq with an Iraqi 
citizen. 
I need a good partner who I can trust to assist me in receiving the consignment on my behalf.   
 
All arrangement to bring out the consignment from Iraq have being concluded with a United Nations 
diplomat. I need someone who can receive it since I cannot receive it directly due to my status. 
I am offering you 20% of the total sum for your assistance and the 80% will be transferred to my 
account 
which I will instruct you in my next email to you on how it will be transferred to my account.
 
Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to.
  
If you are interested I will furnish you with more details. But the whole process is simple and 
we must keep a low profile at all times.
 
The best mode of communication to me is through email. I look forward to your reply and 
co-operation, 
and I thank you in advance as I anticipate your co-operation waiting for your urgent response.
  
Thanks for your understanding.
 
Best Regard,
 
Gen William S. Wallace (RET)
