There is chaos in every real war zone, so it isn’t surprising that money and valuables often go missing or fall into the wrong hands. Scammers know you know this, and they use it as psychological leverage. What loyal American wouldn’t want to help one of his country’s soldiers? And the supposed money used to belong to Saddam Hussein, who is dead, so it’s not like it’s being stolen from anyone. Alas, it’s really all a scam: there’s no money and no Capt. Wright. There’s only a fraudster somewhere in the world trying to con you out of your money.
