    New email scam.. no longer Nigerian O.O

    Can I Trust you?

    I am Col Jerome.C.Lewis, in the American army, presently in Iraq among peace keeping force.

    During the raid of the Saddam Hussein hide out, which was also where he kept funds and valuables, I successfully smuggled out a box containing $15.5 million, which I have moved out of Iraq through a diplomatic channel.

    The funds is presently in the custody of a securities and finance company in Europe. I want to move finally to safe bank
    account or place through a reliable person.

    I have kept this money for so long but right now that President Barrack Obama is serious about moving us (the last troop) out this 2012 as against the planned June 2013, I need to get this cash out ASAP.

    If you are willing to assist me in the deal, urgently contact me through this address for further details.

    Regards,
    Col Jerome.C.Lewis

    I like how he said he got the money out to Europe already, but then closes saying he needs to get it out of Iraq ASAP.

    Also, would like to know which securities and finance firm in Europe is not a safe place (i.e.- less safe than a random person on the intergoogle that responds to his scam email).

    I'd like to meet this guy's English/grammar teacher and slap her/him in the face.

    This seems legit. CC if you're not interested let me know, and I'll be happy to email the Colonel and send him my bank account numbers. Hopefully there will be some sort of finder's fee in it for me.

    I got contacted last year by a supposed Japanese woman whose husband was a UN doctor in Pocatello, Idaho, and wanted me to help her collect $500,000 of her divorce settlement. I was sure there were no U.N. doctors working in Pocatello, so I looked up the name of the doc and found the Brianna Shunshi japanese divorce collection scam. About the same time, one of my daughters was contacted to be an English tutor for a British couple travelling in the US; were going to pay her $60/hour for about 3 hours a week this coming summer. Sounded okay, until one email said they were going to pay her in advance, and it would be a little more than what they agreed to pay her. As soon as I saw that, I had her look up the details of this person online and found it was a variation of the "Nigerian Tutoring Scam."

    I'm here in Poky. Why didn't I get a chance like that? What's amazing, there are those out there who fall for this crap.

    The grandkid in jail in mexico scam that is being run on old folks is unfortunately catching a lot of vulnerable adults. In addition, the yellow page scams are getting a lot of small business owners.

    No kidding. Although I admit if I hadn't already purchased stock in Pioneer Aviation, I might've fallen for it.

    If you want, I can probably put you in touch with "Brianna.". Once I realized what was up, I told HIM that I could start his collection action for $50,000 cash payment up front. Haven't heard from him since.

    You have to slide it in the slots on the side or front of your computer. It worked for me. Now I'm waiting for my returns.

    Just tried to get my blu-ray burner to read my credit card. Placed it on the tray like I was instructed to. Closed the door. Then the door opened, the card was gone, my computer tower turned red, and the monitor started chiding me in Russian. Should I worry?

    Why would a British couple need an English tutor?

    I subscribed to a Russian Mail Order Bride offer that was "buy two, get one free." Now I have three beautiful D cup Siberian women drinking all my vodka and yelling at me in Russian. Any suggestions?
