Major Steve, do you know Major Tom?
I got this email today. Being "the bad type" I'm going to disregard the major's request and not just delete it, but share it with you... it's just too good not to.
My name is Major Steve ,, I am an British soldier in peace keeping force in Afghanistan, I am serving in the 16 Air Assault Brigade in Afghanistan,as you know insurgents everyday and car bombs are attacking us. On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of US$7.3Million dollars in cash, which was recovered from one of our raids on terrorists here in Afghanistan, because they keep most of their money at home for evil activities which they normally get through illegal deals on crude oil.
Based on the suffering we undergo here some of us do meet such luck.It happened that I went for this raid with the men in my unit and I decided to take it as my share for my stress here in this evil land filled with suicide bombers.
I deposited this money with a red cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money.It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money. I wish to use this money and invest anywhere in world because that is where i intend to move over with my family at my retirement.
i am a uniformed man and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary, and i need somebody i can trust and it would be wise working with somebody like you.If you accept,I will move the money out where you will be the beneficiary
I am British soldier and an intelligence officer at that so I have 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic means. I just need your acceptance and all is done. Please if you are interested in this transaction, get back to me so that i will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully.
Where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails.I will only reach you through email,because our calls might be monitored.
If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I can call you for further inquiries when I am out of our military network.I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message. I am doing this on trust,you should understand and you should know that as a trained military expert I will always play safe in case you are the bad type,but I pray you are not.
I wait for your response so we can go on. I will give to you 30% of the sum and 70% is for me. Reply to(stevebill81 @hotmail.com) Regard s,
