Just got this smooth email from a lady looking for love in all the wrong places. I googled her name and the majority of search results was linkage to scam alert websites -so, beware. I wouldn't think anyone here would be stoopid enough to fall for it, just putting the word out. This one sounds harmless enough but reading some of the emails from other peoples experiences w/her and about how she is the granddaughter of the late Ambassador So-n-So....well, you know how the story goes. Feel free to shoot her an email and let her know how you feel about her skankin' around here on TC

Please send me a mail to my private e_mail address and I will tell more about myself so that we can get to know each other and exchange our pictures in good faith.

Yours new friend,
Catherine.

So funny that you posted this, my friend got the same spam the other day and we were talking about it last night. Thanks for sharing the email (great grammar-always a red flag).

Spammers aren't just from the Ivory Coast, but from our own military in Iraq (or so they would have us believe);

Quote:

Dear Friend,

As you very well know, Iraq is gradually undergoing a rebuilding process in some parts and there is much need for reconstruction. I am Freeman Veilleux from the hospitality state (Mississippi), an army contractor attached to the US Military force for the sole purpose of Reconstruction works in some parts of Iraq. I evaluate the level of destruction and offer professional advice inline with the way they intend rebuilding. With no doubt, work has been risky and challenging as we sometimes collide head on with armed insurgents and loose some soldiers during confrontation.

On the early hours of 4th September 2010 I lost a friend whom I had known for 12years during one of these confrontations. It was a very sad day but at about 1100hrs during a normal inspection routine along Haifa Street, built and occupied by the late Saddam Hussein while he was still alive and one of the hide outs of the Al Qaeda and Ayman al-Zawahiri forces. I, along side with 2 soldiers proceeded to a marked site and as I commenced evaluation under close guard by the 2 soldiers, I discovered an unusual bulge in a cellar, which I presumed to be storage room and as I proceeded to have a closer look at it, I kicked a metal covering and found several metal boxes (6 in number) Piled on top each other and locked with a padlock.

On forcing the boxes open, we discovered several armored weapons including bullets. One of the boxes was filled with hard drugs (heroine) and two to my amazement was filled with money. On discovery of this money, I and the soldiers for hours counted bundles of the currencies which amounted to about $23.5M. I believe however that all these belongs to the Al Qaeda and Ayman al-Zawahiri forces, and because of this reason, I instructed the soldiers with me to handover all the boxes containing the drugs and amours to our superiors in the US army and agreed to keep the funds to ourselves, so as to help establish ourselves when we return from Iraq. Presently, we have the money hidden in a safe and untraceable location only known to us.

Why I am explaining all our findings to you is to seek for your assistance and immense contribution to the actualization of our dream of getting these funds out from here. We are in desperate need of a reliable and trustworthy person who will receive, secure and protect these boxes containing the money for us until our assignment ends here. Since Iraq is getting unsafe and more dangerous everyday especially upon the departure of large number of US Military troop, however, as contractors we are still here, but we cannot afford to leave these boxes here in Iraq for any reason and knowing fully well that these were funds used in sponsoring terrorist attacks on our innocent humans. We have no idea what could happen next. This is a true story of what we came across here in Iraq.

I intend to include some pictures I took here and my ID's issued by the US army and government for you to know better who you are dealing with but I will include that in my next email to you. I assure and promise to give you 25% of this fund before sharing with the other 2 soldiers when we leave this place, Please assure me of your keeping this top most secret so that my job would not be jeopardized.

My Sincere Regards,

Freeman Veilleux.
USARMY IRAQ.



Wow! How did I get so lucky?
