I got the same thing they first emailed me thing I don't even know how the got Hello,
Thank you for responding to my email. I apologize to encroach into your privacy in this manner, I got your contact from a directory on the Internet here in Afghanistan. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business and i pray at this time that, your e-mail contact address is still valid. I know you don't know me but i meant no harm sending you this note, just that I don't have anyone out there to talk to, as I lost my parents in a car Accident, when I was 11 year old, I was raise up by my adopted parents, but they died years ago, the relatives of my adopted Parents throw me out of the house saying that I was not their real daughter. I know you can handle this money for me on till I come over to meet with you, we can also build friendship with this transaction. I lived in Lake Jackson, Texas before joining the Force.

You may be wondering why I choose to trust a delicate matter like this in the care of a stranger, but this is the best I can do in my present situation and I would have trusted this kind of project in the hands of my Husband who was my closest confidant, but I lost him to cancer on 22nd April, 2006 5 months after we got married, and my only brother has ruined his life with hard drugs, hence my decision to work with a neutral person if we can establish some trust between ourselves instead of confiding in my buddies back home so that this little secret can be preserved.

Let me start by introducing my self. My names are Sgt. Monica L. Brown, I am assigned to 782nd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division[3]. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $10,500,000.00 (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here.

SOURCE OF MONEY:
I and some other high ranking Officers made some deal on oil business over there in Afghanistan before my exit to Iraq. The deal worth $132 Million United States Dollars and after we have all share the money I later realize $10.5 Million US DOLLARS which is my personal share of the deal, due to my status as a US Sergeant, I can not be able to move this huge funds to my account in United States to avoid further interrogation or face any kind of probation by the U.S government and I packaged my own share in a briefcase and have sent it to the Red-Cross society, because there is no other way out to keep it with me here, so with the help of a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, as I have deposited the consignment as a family treasure. Your acceptance to this would encourage me to send further information for us to proceed.

Furthermore, If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. I believe that such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny. This chance won't pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Do not betray my confidence.

If you wish to proceed with this, please get back to me.
Regards,
Sgt. Monica L. Brown

This is typical 419 Nigerian advanced fee scam. Can you please post the email address of the sender?
Please always spam it and never respond.
Confronting the scammer is WRONG!!! DON'T enlighten criminals with your wisdom. REPORT & BLOCK.

I also got something like this.

email address: 06sg@outlook.com

I first received the same text as above but as i replied for more information i got this:

Greetings,

Thanks for your prompt response to my email.

First be aware that it is not very compulsory to assist me on this matter. If you are willing to help then I advise you act as instructed and if not, feel free to forfeit the offer.

Like I earlier said, If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal.

Your Partner,
Sgt. Monica L. Brown

The following were used to contact me with a document to open first, I don't open documents if I don't know the person first of all.

from: 8sgtlm@outlook.com
to: xxxxxx

The name was sort of familiar (Scott Barrett) so I emailed back to see who was trying to send me a document incase it was legit. Ticks me off that they are using a military person's identity for this, my son serves in the National Guard & we highly respect those that serve, I hope the person(s) that are using her likeness & name are found & punished appropriately there are laws for impersonating a service person either in this manner or even dressing as one & claiming to be in the service.

Okay so then I received this email:

Hello,

Welcome to RS. Thanks for the update on West African mafias abusing pictures of our military.
We all wish our laws would apply to the all impostors but unfortunately it's not happening in Nigeria or Ghana where officials are corrupted and get profit about 30% off cyber romance scam fraud. Please BLOCK them and IGNORE without telling another word. Keep educating the public as this is a key to be saved from online scams.
