Online users, do not respond to email messages like the one below where the sender claims Sgt Salvatore A. Giunta wants your help to transfer millions of dollars into the United States or elsewhere. This is because the email messages are fakes being sent by online scammers and not Sgt Salvatore A. Giunta, to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal, financial information and subsequently money, by claiming they need that information in order to help with the money transfer.
But, one the scammers have gotten their victims' personal and financial information, they will attempt to steal their identities, use their bank accounts fraudulently and trick them into sending them money. This is why online users should not follow the instructions in the email messages and they should just delete them.

Thanks for responding I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself i am Sgt Salvatore A. Giunta assigned to, 2nd Battalion (Airborne), 503 d Infantry Regiment Afghanistan. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $10,500,000.00
(Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. I got your contact from a directory on the Internet here in Afghanistan. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership You may be wondering why I choose to trust a delicate matter like this in the care of a stranger just that I don't have anyone out there to share this with me ,as my both parent are deceased when i was 12 I was raised by my adopted parents but they are no longer alive to see the man i have become today ,I had lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, , before joining the Force November 2011. hence my decision to work with a neutral person is all i got for now. if we can establish some trust between ourselves it will go a long way to the success of this transaction
SOURCE OF MONEY:
I and some other high ranking officers made some deal on OIL BUSINESS over here in Afghanistan. The deal worth $132 Million U.S Dollars and after we all shared the money I later realized $10.5 Million U.S Dollars which is my personal share of the deal, due to my status as a US Sergeant, I cannot 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, please get back to me and also provide me with your ALTERNATIVE EMAIL as means of contact should incase i can't reach you through this email of yours.
Sgt Salvatore A. Giunta
