US Soldier ,In need of Assistance, somehow, I dont really understand why.....

Subject: I am a US Soldier ,I need Your Assistance Please (Confidential)‏

Dear Friend,

My name is Major,Selma George. I am an American soldier with Swiss background,
serving in the military with the army 3rd infantry division.With a very
desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I found
your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind
assistance to move the sum of ( $ 3.2 million u.s.dollars )three million, two
hundred united states dollars to you, as far as I can be assured that my share
will be safe in your care until I complete my service here, this is no stolen
money, and there are no danger involved. I am presently in a hospital
recovering from injuries sustained in a suicide bomb attack.

Source of money:

Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near
one of Saddam's old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and
it was agreed by staff Sgt Kenneth buff and I that some part of this money be
shared among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw
the money first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No
compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell
hole. Of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last week.

Please view website for confirmation;

The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money
became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working here and
his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to move the money to a security
company in bangkok thailand as a diplomatic baggage. They are now waiting for
us to provide the name of beneficiary who they will transfer the funds to. The
reason i want you to claim the funds on my behalf is that as a soldier, i
cannot present a concrete evidence on how i made such a big amount of money
down here. Besides the US Government is trying their best to keep their eyes on
soldiers here inorder to effect a high level of discipline among us.The moment
am sure that you are willing to assist me, i will give you the information of
the security company and the security code of the baggage.I want
you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you
will give to me.

One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with
anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please
destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us
soldiers here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, and i have
been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by the special grace
of God, this and other reasons i will mention later has prompted me to reach
out for help, i honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please
contact me as soon aspossible, my only way of communication is email.

Yours in Service.

No risk, All reward.....

Date: Mon, 15 Dec 2008 13:15:59 -0600 (CST)
From: "Zaohang Lin" <>

Dear Associate,

Thank you for giving me your time. Please be patient and read my email to you.

I am Zaohang Lin, bank manager of the Bank of China, Shenzhen branch.Prior to this position, I was attached to Private Banking services.I am contacting you concerning an investment placed under our banks management 4 years ago; you are contacted independently out of investigation in the bank. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.

In the year 1998, a certain Mr Robert Rice came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our Private Banking Services Department. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 30 million United States dollars, which he wished to have us invest on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case; I then proceeded to provide numerous suggestions and advise in line with my duties as the de-facto Chief Operations officer of the Private Banking Services Department, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed.
I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings. The favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 600 traditional stocks and bond managers and alternative investments. Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made very attractive profits margins during our first months of operation; the accrued profit and interest at this point stood at over 34.5 million United States dollars. He desired low risk and guaranteed returns on investments, and as such we could not utilize the full potential of the funds.

On November 6, 2001, he requested disinvestments and directed that the funds be deposited in a Fixed (Numbered) Deposit account in my branch for 12 calendar months. His instructions were precisely followed to the latter and all the funds recalled from the active market and deposited.

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that he died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This money is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it.

According to Laws of Republic of China, at the expiration of 6 (six) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and versee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I am proposing.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to the man so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin.

We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and tarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 50% for you.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately to this

I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I am not doing anything against good conscience. I know that this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come once in a lifetime. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk

I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life.
Let's share the blessing.

Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.

Thanks and regards.

Zaohang Lin.

Dear Friend,
I know you would be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you before now. My name is Denzel Woods, a master sgt. of the U.N. Army, deployed to Iraq in the beginning of the war in 2003. I would like to share some highly personal classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.N ARMY which was at the fore-front of the war in Iraq.
Though, I would like to hold back certain information for security reasons for now until you have found time to visit the BBC website stated below to enable you have insight regarding what I intend to share with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest in one way or the other. Here is a BBC news listing that confirms what I share with you.

Also, could you get back to me having visited the above website to enable us discuss in a more vivid manner to the best of your understanding. I must say that I'm very uncomfortable sending this message to you without knowing truly if you would misconstrue the importance and decide to go public. In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this letter is strictly for mutual benefit of you and I and nothing more.
I will be more vivid and coherent in my next email in this regards.

Meanwhile, could you send me a mail thru this email address confirming you have visited the site and want to know my intentions on sending you this message. Standing by for your response.

Denzel Woods.

Good Day ,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such.
I am Barrister Colin Alderman, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. Dickson, hereinafter referred to as’ my client' who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and who died in a car crash with his immediate family on the 4th of oct,1998. Since the death of my client in Oct, 1998, I have written several letters to the embassy with intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail.

Moreover, I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited the sum of 30 million pounds.

On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with your consent, present you to the "trustee" bank as my late client's surviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client.

I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you bear a similar last name with my client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity. I propose that 50% of the net sum will accrue to you at the conclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incur further expenses.

Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you need, first to contact me via email signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain your confidence, I will immediately appraise you with the complete details as well as fax you the documents, with which you are to proceed and i shall direct on how to put up an application to the bank.

HOWEVER, you will have to accent to an express agreement which I will forward to you in order to bind us in this transaction.

Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send you by fax or E-mail the next step to take. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transfer. Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this.

Best regards,

Colin Alderman.

Good day!!!

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $850,000 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and Dr.Wilson the Director Bank of Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $850,000USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment and lodge it a consignment box as clothes to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of March 2009.

What you have to do now is to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES as soon as possible with the below information to know when they will deliver your Consignment box to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium.

The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICES to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ( USD$125.00 ) One Hundred And Twenty Five United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, dont be deceived by any body to pay any other money except $125.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they said no because they dont know when you will contact them and in case of dumurrage. You have to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES now for the delivery of your package with this information bellow;

Directors Name: Dr. Steve Loranger
Email Address:
Tel/Fax: +2348025900156

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct telephone number to them again. Be informed that as soon as you send the Security Keeping fee of $125.00 to the Courier Service, they will send you the tracking number of the package over there and deliver your package to your address.

Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $125.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. Note that the FEDEX COURIER SERVICES don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of Africa clothes (family valuables).

They did not know the contents was money. This is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don't let them know that box contains money ok.

I am waiting for your urgent response.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. James Morgan.
