Hello, I will be needing your assistance.
My name is Capt. John Neilsen presently in Afghanistan with the United States Marine Corps (USMC); I found your contact particulars in an Address journal.
When on a routine mission of search and destroy we stumbled upon a concealed barrel with piles of weapon and ammunitions, my men and I agreed that the money be shared, the sum of $900,000.00 (Nine hundred thousand dollars) now happens to be my share. I have the cooperation of a German diplomat working here for its evacuation to a safer country, though, i have not disclosed the true content s of the package to him, he believes it to be personal effects of an Asian American who died in an air raid.
I need someone i can trust to receive this package as a relative to this dead Asian American, there is a secured way of getting the package out to a safer country for you to pick up, i will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist me.
One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with a third party, should you have reasons to reject this offer. Please destroy this mail as any leakage of this information will be too bad for me. I do not know for how long we will remain here but hopefully before the year runs out.
Captain. John Neilsen

Wow thats lucky! And totally believable, I leave my address journal in Afghanistan all the time! Don't you?
I've been to Afghanistan, but I'm pretty sure anything I left there more than 20 years ago is dust by now.
I've had fun responding to these people. Just don't share any personal information! I like it when they tell me, for the 2nd time, that they checked with their banks and still haven't received the money I said I sent them.
I actually just wrote a hub about phishing today, just like this!
Awesome!!!! Why don't you help out and get the money? I love those scams....
I get emails like this one too. I send them straight to spam. There are so many people that are out to get money from others, it doesn't matter what they have to do. All I have to say is "That I might have been born at night, but not last night."
I was naughty and told them shame on them for trying to con people they argued back and forth with me and finally gave up.
Has been a while since I got one of those type of emails. lol
