sgtjeffrawley@latinmail.com Sgt. Jeff Frawley

Wow! $25 million! And all you have to do is help out an American soldier! A soldier who needs some grammar lessons....

"just for you to help us"
"ready to compensate you with good percentage of the funds"
"we plan on using diplomatic means to shipping the money out"
"This is risk free." Just like buying real estate! "100% Risk Free!"

Oh yeah.

And we love the "hence".

Good day,

My name is Sgt. Jeff Frawley, I am an American soldier, I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, as you know we are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs. We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family. The total amount is US$25 Million dollars in cash, mostly 100 dollar bills, this money has been kept somewhere outside Baghdad for sometime but with the proposed troop withdrawal by President Obama, we are afraid that the money will be discovered hence we want to move this money to you for safe keeping pending the completion of our assignment here. You can go to this web link to read about events that took place there:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/ middle_east/2988455.stm

We are ready to compensate you with good percentage of the funds, No strings attached, just for you to help us move it out of Iraq. Iraq is a war zone, so we plan on using diplomatic means to shipping the money out as military cargo, using diplomatic immunity. If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and assist us. Can I trust you? When you receive this letter, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your most confidential telephone numbers for quick communication also your contact details.

This is risk free.

With regards from,

Sgt. Jeff Frawley

See ScamORama, the lads from Lagos, theScamBaiter, and 419 Eater for more fun with 419 scammers.

BTW - the real Sgt. Jeff Frawley is/was with the 82nd Airborne Division.

Also see Sgt. Jeff on Funny Scam Mails. And the amount of money Sgt. Jeff has is growing by leaps and bounds! In July 2008 it was only $4.5 million. This guy is an investment genius.
