Sgt. Cook Chad in Iraq

Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.

This is a good example of the overseas soldier scam. “Sgt. Chad” is stationed in Iraq, and he needs your help in getting some war profits out of the country. It’s all legal, he assures you. And employing a familiar kind of reverse psychology, he asks if you can be trusted. If I were you, I wouldn’t worry about your own trustworthiness; I’d worry about the scammer calling himself “Sgt. Chad.”

Hello Friend,

I hope my e-mail meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My names is SGT.COOK CHAD of the Engineering Unit of US Military here in Ba’qubah in Iraq; we have about $10 Million that we want to move out of the country. This money was found in boxes some time ago during our routine raid around the base.

My partners and I need a good partner out there, someone we can trust to receive the funds on our behalf. It is oil money and legal.

The most important thing is; “Can We Trust you”?

Once the funds get to you, simply take out 20% as your share and keep the remaining 80% for us. Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to, ours is sending it to you safely. Also you can view this Link for proper verification

news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm

If you are interested I will furnish you with more details upon receipt of your response and contact details. But I can assure you the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all times. I look forward to your reply and co-operation. We have kept this money for so long but right now the US President, Barack Obama said he is pulling us out from Iraq so I must have this cash out immediately. Reply me at

Regards,
SGT.COOK CHAD

Capt Frank Markovski of NATO (Scam Alert)

This is an example of what might be called the spoils-of-war scam. The writer claims to be a soldier stationed in a war zone, and he’s “discovered” a large amount of hidden, stolen, or captured cash. If you can just help get it to safety, he’ll split it with you. And you needn’t feel any moral qualms: it belonged to the enemy, and besides, they’re all dead. Of course in reality it’s just a standard advance fee fraud: there’s really no cash and no “Capt. Markovski” — there’s just a scammer with a cheap cell phone who’s trying to pick your pocket.

Sgt. Darrell Klante in Iraq (Scam Alert)

This is another example of the “Iraq soldier scam.” An American soldier, usually a sergeant, claims to have recovered a fortune in cash that had belonged to Saddam Hussein, and he needs your help getting it out of the country. Hussein was a murderous dictator, so it’s not like we’re taking money from poor people or anything like that. Can you help? You’ll get a healthy reward if you do (sucker).

Staff Sgt. Johnson Wood (scam alert)

This is a specific and familiar type of scam, one we might call the battlefield soldier scam. A dedicated soldier (at present usually an American soldier in Iraq) claims to have discovered a large quantity of cash, typically abandoned cash that belonged to a former dictator. Taking it wouldn’t really be stealing, since the dictator has been deposed and he was corrupt anyway. If you’ll just help move the money to your country, you can have a cut. No one will be harmed, and we’ll all be rich. What could be wrong with that?

White Zimbabwe Farmer Scam

This is a familiar script to those who follow African advance fee frauds. The writer claims to be a white Zimbabwean farmer who has been expelled from his land by the corrupt regime of Robert Mugabe. He has managed to place most of his money in a secret deposit, and now needs your help to get it out of the country. As usual, the scam is built around real people and real events, and just enough detail is given to make it almost seem plausible.

From: Mark Smith.
Marondera Province,
Zimbabwe.

My Dear Friend,

I am Mark Smith, a white Zimbabwean Farmer. I am presently contacting you on a very urgent issue. My younger brother, David Smith was brutally assassinated by hoodlums loyal to the government of President Robert Mugabe.  He was murdered barely one week after a farm situated on a landmass of 10,000 hectares was taken away from us by the Government. After the brutal murder of my brother David, I had to move members of our family out of Zimbabwe to Uganda to give me time to relocate and resettle. The death of my brother was also reported on CNN and BBC. You can read more about this through the link below:

livingzimbabwe.com/2009/03/white-farmers-you-are-not-welcome-in-zimbabwe.html

Before David’s assassination, having in mind that the fight against the white farmers by the black loyalist to Mugabe’s government who where forcefully taking white farmers land and property from them. The fight became so fierce that we had to sell off most to the tractors and farm machineries we had, withdrew all our savings from the bank in preparation to flee the country. We deposited all our money in a security company. The security company had the money defaced to look like plane white papers just to make sure they bit security operatives at the airport during shipment via cargo. It was at the point of conclusion with immigration requirements for our departure from Zimbabwe that the unfortunate incident of David’s murder took place.

I am appealing to you in trust to lay claims to our money, which is all we have left as a family to survive on. The money deposited with the security company is $9.7 Million Dollars. The security company moved it to a safe location. I will disclose this location to you after I get your positive response to help us. For your assistance and acceptance to help us, you will get 30% of the total sum and keep the balance for us while we make arrangement to meet with you in your country if your country’s government policies would allow us room to start up our farming business.

If you are ready to help my family, the security company would need from you, the following information to contact you:

1. Your Full names.
2. Personal Phone number.
3. Personal Fax number.
4. Occupation.
5. Sex.
6. Age.
7. Nationality.
8. City and Country of residence

As soon as I have this information, I will pass it on to the security company before you contact them as our family trustee to lay claims to the funds. God bless you as you help us.

Regards,

Mark Smith.

Capt. Scott J. Wright in Iraq

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.

Capt. Gill, an American Soldier (Scam Alert)

This is a typical example of the soldier-in-a-war-zone scam. He has discovered some cash that belonged to the deposed government, and wants help getting it back home. Strictly speaking, this is against military regulations, but we know the dictator is dead and it’s not as though we are stealing from anyone, right? You’ll help a soldier, won’t you? If you do, of course, you’ll discover there really is no soldier and no cash: there’s just a scammer trying to extract “bribes” or “courier fees” from you, and once he has your money you’ll never hear from him again.

Attn: My Good Friend,

My name is Capt. gill, an American soldier. I was serving in the military of the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. I am in Iraq at the moment. I and my partner moved one of the boxes containing funds which we believe belonging to Late Saddam Hussein in March 2007, the total fund in this box is $15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million US Dollars).And this fund had been moved via a safe Diplomatic Courier Service to a secured security company.

Please click on this link view:
news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm

Basically since we are working for the American government we cannot keep these funds, we are 3 that are involved. This means that you will take 30 percent, I will take 30 percent, and my partner will take 30 percent, 10 percent will be kept aside for expenses. This business is confidential, and we plead that it should not be discussed with anyone.

There is no risk involved as we left this fund in the Security Company without declaring its contents for this period of time to make sure that the fund will be safe for transfer and investment.

If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and will assist us.

Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your telephone/fax numbers for quick communication and also your contact details. I assure you that this transaction is risk free and its success is 100% guaranteed,

Please help us to help you. And get in touch with me through this my private email: capt.gill@terra.es
