The Business Proposal Email from Sgt. Monica L. Brown is a Scam

The fake email message below, which the alleged sender, Sgt. Monica L. Brown, is asking the recipients to help her transfer millions of US dollars, is a scam. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers/cybercriminals to trick their potential victims into sending their personal and financial information, which the same scammers will use afterwards, to trick the recipients into sending them their money. Therefore, recipients of the fraudulent email message should delete it, and should not follow the instructions in it.

Business Proposal kindly view attach for more detail..

I apologize to encroach into your privacy in this manner, I got your contact from a directory on the Internet here in Afghanistan. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business and i pray at this time that, your e-mail contact address is still valid. I know you don't know me but i meant no harm sending you this note, just that I don't have anyone out there to talk to, as I lost my parents in a car Accident, when I was 12 years old, I was raised up by my adopted parents, but they died years ago, the relatives of my adopted parents throw me out of the house saying that I was not their real daughter. I know you can handle this money for me on till I come over to meet with you, we can also build friendship with this transaction. I lived in Hartford, Connecticut, before joining the Force.

You may be wondering why I choose to trust a delicate matter like this in the care of a stranger, but this is the best I can do in my present situation and I would have trusted this kind of project in the hands of my Husband who was my closest confidant, but I lost him to cancer on 20th June, 2006, 9 months after we got married, and my only brother has ruined his life with hard drugs, hence my decision to work with a neutral person if we can establish some trust between ourselves instead of confiding in my buddies back home so that this little secret can be preserved.

Let me start by introducing my self. My names are Sgt. Monica L. Brown, I am assigned to 782nd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division[3]. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $5,900,000.00USD (Five Million, Nine Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars) as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here.


I and some other high ranking officers made some deal on OIL BUSINESS over there in Afghanistan before my exit to Iraq. The deal worth $132 Million U.S Dollars and after we all shared the money I later realized $5.9 Million U.S Dollars which is my personal share of the deal, due to my status as a US Sergeant, I can not be able to move this huge funds to my account in United States to avoid further interrogation or face any kind of probation by the U.S Government and I packaged my own share in a briefcase and have sent it to the Red-Cross Society, because there is no other way out to keep it with me here, so with the help of a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, as I have deposited the consignment as a family treasure. Your acceptance to this would encourage me to send further information for us to proceed.

Furthermore, If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. I believe that such opportunities only come once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny. This chance won't pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Do not betray my confidence.

If you wish to proceed with this, Your sincere co-operation is anticipated and i shall furnish you with the details and procedures upon the receipt of your response to my email sgtmonicabrown0190@gmail.com

    I love these scams. I take great delight in following their instructions (pretending to be a vicar, I was at a party dressed as one and use the picture as proof)to the letter right up to the end when I die suddenly and leave the scammer my house provided they pay a transfer fee, or doctor a Western Union receipt and have them running around.
    I have just finished one scammer, did the Sgt a while ago and now have an Egyptian to wind up.
