Iraq Email Scam
No, this won’t be a post about some political scandal in Iraq.
Instead, I wanted to post an scam email — one where a supposed American soldier wants to share some of Saddam Hussein’s booty (booty here meaning “Plunder taken from an enemy in time of war.”)
Here’s the email:
I haven’t seen an email like this since “Bradon Curtis” a “special forces commando” working in Afghanistan wanted to send us some Taliban money a few years ago.
As always, these emails should produce more laughs than greed as they land in your in-box. The scam is one of the oldest in the book and will involve you giving up more and more money as you try to get your grubby, greedy mitts on 7.2 million of Saddam’s money.
