US Marine Corps 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 someone in the Marines. 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.

    Hello Dear,

    I am General Mariam O Adms commanding 3rd Battalion, Marine Regiment with the United States and Britain Coalition Force in Afghanistan, on war against terrorism. Based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan come this year have decided to quit the marine and relocate back . I will need an apartment, for myself that is why I contacted you. On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of €18.6million Euro. which was recovered from one of our raids on terrorists here in Afghanistan because they keep most of their money at home for evil activities which they normally get through illegal deals on crude oil.

    Based on the suffering we undergo here some of us do meet such luck. It happened that I went for this raid with the men in my unit and I decided to take it as my share for my stress here in this evil land filled with suicide bombers. I deposited this money with a Red Cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money. It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money. i will like to work with you so that we can move this money because I will like to be with you, so I need someone I could deal with as a friend brother and family. If you accept, we will move the money out from here where you will be the beneficiary because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary. I am an American and an intelligence officer for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service .I just need your acceptance and all is done.

    Please if you are interested in this transaction I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully. I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured site where I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you. Where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which are secured so nobody can monitor our discussions, then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through emails, because our calls might be monitored, I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with.

    Also I want you to know that am revealing this deal to you with believe that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this deal, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you on the next step to take urgently. If you are interested please reply me immediately so I can contact you for further inquiries. I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message, if no response after 3 days i will then search for someone else. I am doing this on trust, you should understand and you should know that as a trained military expert I will always play safe in case you are the bad type, but i pray you are not.€18.6million Euro is a lot of money which is the dream of anyone.

    I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 7days the money should have been noted on your care and I will come over for my money. I will give to you 40% of the sum and 60% is for me. I hope I am being fair on this deal.
