    Hello friend,

    My name is Scott Whittington, I am an American soldier, I am serving in the military with the 1st Armored Division in Iraq , as you know we are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs.We managed to move part of funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family in 2003.

    The total amount is US$12 Million dollars in cash, mostly 100 dollar bills,this money has been kept somewhere outside Baghdad for some time but with the proposed troop in increase by president Barrack Obama, to end the suicide bombing and make peace with Iraq militant and terrorist ,we are afraid that the money may be discovered hence we want to move this money to you for safekeeping pending the completion of our assignment here.

    READ THIS WEBSITE VERY WELL AND GET BACK TO ME.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm We are ready to compensate you with good percentage of the funds, No strings attached, Iraq is a war zone, we plan on using diplomatic means to ship the money out as military cargo to your home, under diplomatic immunity cover.

    I am contacting you in confidence, all arrangement for the successful delivery has been put in place, all we need from you is to receive the cargo from the diplomat, If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us.

    NBC's Dateline show recently did face to face meetings with scammers like this. It was a pretty good show.

    It surprises me that a lot of people aren't screaming mad about one such as this. It is a real insult. Not harmless or ignorant, it is really naughty and in such bad taste... l guess anything goes these days. T'is awful quiet.

    A couple years back when I had my computer store I got a Nigerian 419 scam letter at my shop. I played along with these fools for about six months. The scenarios that they proposed were so absurd they were actually funny. 40 million dollars that had been coated with a substance thet rendered them impervios to inspection with Xray etc. They wanted $60,000. to CLEAN the individual notes, I ran it thru a spread sheet and it would have taken over 2 years to just clean each bill by hand for $40. million bucks. I stroked them to the extent that we agreed to meet in Zurich to echange the trunk full of $100. bills. When I demanded documentation etc. they faded away.

    Internet scams are the only industry that Nigeria has other than oil and that's not going to well for the average Nigerian.
    Did you see the video on youtube made by the BBC reporter, they raided an internet scam shop with dozens of computers all up to no good.
    When they arrested the scammers, the locals started throwing rocks at the armed cops.
    They must be getting some people responding and giving them money, otherwise they wouldn't persevere.
