I just threw up a little in my mouth

From my Inbox:

From Sgt Herman Hansley
Camp MXP-512 Third Infantry Division
Abul Uruj, Baghdad, Iraq.

I am Herman R Hansley, a native of Iraq. I am a
Military Contractor with the America troop currently
serving in the third infantry division Unit in Iraq.

I am currently on duty break. My partner Darren D.
Braswell, 36, of Riverdale, Ga., died Jan. 7th near
TalAfar, Iraq, when the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter
in which he was a Passenger crashed. Braswell worked
For the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, before
his death We secretly moved some abandoned cash in
a mansion belonging to the former president,
Saddam Hussein and the total cash is
US$20,200,000.00 Twenty Million two hundred thousand Dollars.

As I write this letter to you, these boxes are in
Security Company as I secretly moved it out of Baghdad
to safe place.

Sir I seek your consent to help me move this money to
your country location.

You do not have to be afraid of anything as no one else
knows about this and everything is safe. I would be
pleased and grateful to you if you could assist me
and my late partner Darren D. Braswel in receiving
this boxes for us on your behalf as I will be heading
back soon to camp in Iraq to join my colleagues.
Of course, I shall compensate you with an attractive
percent of the total funds for your role/efforts.
We have limited time now as you know that our
evacuation agreement is been negotiated by the USA
and IRAQI government, kindly get back to me

Moving the funds out of the security company is not
going to be much of a problem as arrangements are
being made towards that. All I want from you is your trust,

Please get back to me with your full name
Contact phone number

Preferable without delay and let's negotiate terms.

Your response will determine our subsequent correspondence.

You can read more on this website for more information and

Yours in Service.

For years I've been getting these things... I suspect we all have. And like most of us, I've pretty much ignored them. I mean, if all these people actually were the relatives of deceased African ministers who had stashed millions in a numbered account, the number of deceased African ministers would start to rival the population of Brooklyn. It all seemed very... unlikely. And silly. And sad.

But this... this just makes me mad as hell.

I would like it very much if the United Nations, or Interpol, or some similar entity, would catch these people and put them in jail for a very long time.

Barring that, maybe we could track these pricks down and 'extraordinary rendition' their asses to Gitmo for a few dozen Presidential terms...
