Military Personnel Money Transfer Advance-fee Scams Being Sent by Online Scammers

Online users, beware of military advance-fee emails, where the scammers who are sending the fake emails claim they are in the military and have a large amount of money they want to transfer. 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.

Dear Friend,

Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Sgt Anthony Saenz, in 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division here that Patrols the Helmand Province, Afghanistan. I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you.

I am presently in Afghanistan and I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $26m (Twenty Six Million United States Dollars) to you, as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.


Some money in US DOLLARS was discovered and concealed in barrels at a location in Helman Province when we conducted a foot patrol and it was agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us.This might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hellhole. The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a Canadian 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 he believes that it belongs to an American who died in an air raid, who before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative.

I have now found a secured way of getting the package out of Afghanistan for you to pick up. I do not know how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive 2 suicide bomb attacks by Pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach out for help. If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to contact me immediately and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually benefiting relationship.

I will give to you 30% of the sum and 70% is for me. I hope I am been fair on this deal, Get back to me with your full information:






I wait for your contact details so we can go on.


Sgt Anthony Saenz.

    Subject: -From Sgt. LAUREN NOWAK-

    Hello Dear and Compliments of the Day.

    I send you this mail without knowing what the consequences might be, I know within me that you will not disappoint me.

    I know what am about to tell you will come to you as surprise, i know this is as a result of the fact that some

    mischief-makers who have taken to the Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it little

    difficult for some people to believe that not all things in the Internet are genuine. But what am about to tell you

    is very real, it will serve as a life changing to you.

    My name is Sgt. Lauren Nowak, native of Fremont,Ohio,USA. Am 27yrs old, A team leader with Female Engagement Team 13,

    currently in support of Weapons Company,1st Battalion,9th Marine Regiment Afghanistan with high hope of working


    In Iraq before my exit to Afghanistan,on a routing patrol with some of my team member in an Iraqi remote village

    we discovered in an underground abandoned militant bunker hidden money in boxes in US currency ($132M USD).

    Together we kept it secret.The money was later shared among us and after sharing I got ($10.5M USD).

    Due to my status as a US military, I can't be able to move the money out to my Account,if traced to my Account will

    be problem for me,I will be interrogated,court-martial and then dismissed subject to U.S military law.

    I then decided and packed the total $10.5 Million USD in a Safe Box and sent it to Red-Cross office,this is

    because there is no other way out to keep it with me here in Afghanistan. With the help of a German contact

    working with the UN here I was able to get the Safe Box out to a safe location entirely out of trouble zone.

    As i write you, the German does not know what is contains in the Safe Box. The Safe Box is presently deposited

    as a family treasure.

    Note; please delete this message if you know you are not interested/satisfy in what i have told you.

    please don't put my career at risk because you do not want to be part of my proposal.

    But I believe that this type opportunities only come ones in a lifetime, this chance won't pass me by.

    Your acceptance will gladden my heart and i will immediately provide you with further information on what to be

    done for us to proceed to conclusion.

    Awaiting your urgent reply.

    Compliments of the seasons to you, i am indeed sorry for intruding your privacy, but I implore you to give me a minute of your time to go through this message carefully.

    I am Sgt. G. Carson, A US Soldier. I am among the Military patrol team in Kabul, Afghanistan.

    With due respect, i need your assistance to evacuate a sum of $3.5m (Three Million Five Hundred thousand United States Dollars) to you for safekeeping until i will be through with my service here in Afghanistan to meet with you.

    I and some other high ranking Officers made some deal on oil business over here in Afghanistan. The deal worth $132 Million United States Dollars and after we have all share the money I later realized $3.5 Million US Dollars which is my personal share of the deal.

    The above figure was given to me as my part and to conceal this kind of amount became a problem for me while still here in Afghanistan, so with the help of a Canadian contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the funds out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot.

    Moreover I have now found a secured way of getting the money out of Afghanistan because i do not know how long i will remain here because of duty call to different location at any given time. This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach out for help if it might be of interest to you.

    I wait to see your response so that we can begin the delivery processing immediately. Please I urge you to be discreet about this information. Thank you.


    Sgt. G. Carson"
