Spam from Iraq

I am sure I am not the only one who has received an email like this one. This is not a soldier and he is not in Baghdad. Please email his personal email address below and let him know how you feel about his trading on the deaths of American soldiers.

This is the new Nigerian scam. Beware and let him have it. I am taking action with information I found in the header of the email. Can you tell that I am MAD!?

Military Base Hosptial,

Hi Buddy,

I hope my email meets you well. My name is Sgt.Julian Alexander Smith (American soldier). I am in the Engineering military unit here in Baghdad in Iraq , with Oesophageal cancer which has defiled all forms of medical treatment, i will soon be flow to military base in Germany,before than i need your help and I have only about a few weeks to live, according to medical experts. My late 2 colleagues who died last week in a bomb blast and I found a huge sum of $25 Million USD in Baghdad neighbourhood in 2003.I wanted to distribute the funds myself until i became ill.Am sorry if you are embarrassed by my mail,i found your e-mail address in the web directory, and i have decided to contact you, but if for any reason you find this mail offensive, you can ignore it and please accept my apology. (

The funds was successfully moved out of the country via online bank transfer to a secure security and online finance institution in Spain that same year.I am contacting you because i want you help me distribute them to charity organizations and homeless people.

I feel distributing the funds would my my soul rest in peace and also want God to be merciful to me and my late friends ,because we have killed so many in the war, but we where only serving our country.I have decided to give the sum of $25 Million USD to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. I am single, as my family died in a car accident years ago,no father,mother and relatives around me any more they all died years back.I guess it is time for me to go join my family as i see my beautiful wife and my son in my dreams.

I will want you to help me collect this funds and dispatch it to any charity organizations. I have set aside 25% for you and your time 5% for any expenses during the process of you getting the $25 Million USD.The most important thing is that can I TRUST you once the funds get to you? and also would you distribute the rest 70% to charity organizations?. Your own duty is to contact the SECURITY AND FINANCE on how the funds can be released and transfer to you.Note the funds are insured by me for security measures in the security and finance institution. If you are interested I will furnish you with more details.You are to send me all your full informations such as telephone,mobile,fax,country,occupation e.t.c.

But the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all times because if the authorities are aware of this funds, it would be seized and used for purchasing ammunitions and irrelevant accessories, when we have so many sick and homeless kids dying of hunger all over the world.

I am awaiting your urgent response on my private email address,


Sgt.Julian Alexander Smith

You have to be very careful emailing these guys. First of all, if you do it with your usual email account you will get spammed out of all existance - they will pass it on to every scammer they know. Second, they can trace you just as well as you can trace them, so you need to use Gmail or another type of email program which does not show them your IP.

There are a large group of people on the internet who fight these guys every day, I'm one of them. We're called scam-baiters. Check out for some more info and if you really want to email them please make sure to do it safely. Scambaits has a mentor program which can teach you the basics of baiting safely, too.

@snoskred-you are right. I was just so angry. Trading on the lives of others just made me see red. I will check out scambaits, because I am tired of all the spam I have to deal with every day. Thanks for stopping by, and for being the voice of reason.
