    I received this one:

    “I'm Sergeant Anna Sukaru, from the US Army base In Syria for the maintenance of peace. I found your contact information in an address diary and asked for your help to evacuate the sum of $ 10,000,000.00 as long as I am sure I will be safe in your care until I complete my service here in Syria. This is not stolen money and there are no dangers involved. I count on your understanding.
