Capt. Dennis Hall (scam warning)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is an example of the soldier-who-needs-your-help scam, a type of scam message that isn’t very common but does turn up from time to time. The scammer usually poses as a soldier in a war zone who has discovered a fortune in stolen money or valuables, and needs your help to get it safely home. You’re a patriotic citizen, so of course you’ll help! Unfortunately, the person sending the message is a scammer, not a soldier, and he’s just trying to pick your pocket.
