Here’s a fun one. Supposedly from an American soldier in Afghanistan, and (surprise) he wants me to help him get Saddam’s money out of the country. Please. There’s no way this is legit! Nor was it written by an American, clearly. There are no millions waiting for you in the desert. Just a thief somewhere trying to take your money. ~BD

I am Sgt Jason Miller, A US Army serving in the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. Now in Afghanistan I want you to read this mail carefully and understand it. (Who writes like that? Now in Afghanistan I want you to read this mail carefully…so I’m supposed to go to Afghanistan and read it? What???)
In 2003, my men and I found over $900 million in Saddam Hussein hideout (is that the official name of some place…Saddam Hussein hideout?) in Baghdad, we sentsome back to the Iraq government after counting it in a classified location, but we also kept some behind for ourselves. Some of the money we shared among ourselves worth over $200 million, I kept my own share for a while in a secured place.
I need someone to help me receive it, since i have found a secured way of getting the package out of Iraq for you to pick up through the help of a Red Cross Society or pilots that enjoy some immunity with us while in Iraq. (Enjoy some immunity with us? What the hell is this idiot trying to say???)
I do not know for how long I will remain here as I have been lucky to survive 3 suicide bomb attacks by Afghanistan Militant; (Wow…three attacks from the same guy named Afghanistan Militant? He must have had a rough childhood with a name like that.) i know this was Pure Divine intervention from God.
I need someone I can trust, since i have already lost a box of gold to someone that said he will help me, I won’t like to make the same mistake (You won’t like to, huh? Nice grasp of the English language, there, moron.). The total amount of money is $7.5 (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), this money i am will and ready (That’s a new one to me. Will and ready. What exactly does that mean?) to entrustit in your care till i resign from office and meet with you in your house for subsequent sharing and investment projects.
View the below link to verify/confirm my statement.

If you can handle this deal let me know immediately, you will receive 20% of the money, all you need to do is to find a safe place where you can keep the box till i leave Afghanistan.
