Army Sgt Advance-Fee Scam Being Sent by Scammers

Scammers are sending out thousands of advance-fee email scams like the one below, where they claim to be a Sgt. in the army. Recipients of the same fake emails are asked not to follow the instructions in them. The scams are an attempt by scammers to trick potential victims into sending them money or personal information by impersonating someone else. An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.

    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.

    Best regards.”
