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 Regard s,

Major Steve,

Major Tom Steve from BOSTON contacted me today via Skype...I think he is a romantic scammer. Just third one this month. Be careful women...this is a rising trend among internet scammers. Tom Steve is serving in Afghanistan and is a widow. These scammers try to do some money laundring...I've busted them all because of the similar pattern.

An intetnet scammer is a conman who works on the internet. They send a lot of email hoping to get a few people to answer. Then they con those people out of their money. Major Steve does not exist.

I decided to google Major Tom Steve just now and came across. I am a single woman in Australia. He has been sending me love skypes, love e-mails, etc. He did say he was a widow with a child. I have kept all his e-mails in a folder. He sent a pic of his Daughter (she is African American, Tom is white). He has not mentioned marriage but has continued to harass and send me garbage of love. I'm playing along for the fun of it. He says he's going to be in Australia on the 21st December. His vacation time. I'm busy that day. Anonymous has Op. Homelessness up and going. I'll be helping feed the poor.
P.S. Major! You're fucking with the wrong sheila mate. I'm not only anti-war. I despise Military Invasions. So I'm getting a kick out of fucking you around.

He said he had been in Afghanistan for.a long time, his Facebook said.he was.leaving for.there.on oct 23, when I talked with him.he said he had been there for months. Then he said he was shot and he was going to retire in November, during vacation. But he's had two million dollars wanted to send it wanted all my information. I told him no because them he could take my identity. Then he had a man named morris brown email me and said.I pay for insurance in Turkey for safety. $1250. Then I told.Tom it was a scam and he was mad..and I shouldn't.make him mad while he was in I asked him to send me a picture in the hospital, he said.he couldn't.. he gave the girl a name and everything...crazy I told him I would call the police and he said the police can't do anything to him.all of the pictures look different..could tell he was a scammer right away...I hope he dies in Hell.
