I have not seen this scam before.
I hope my email meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My name
is Sgt James Clayton. I am a military attache with the Engineering unit
here in Ba'qubah Iraq for the United States.
Awaiting your urgent response.
Sgt James Clayton
God Bless America!!!!!!
What do you bet that Sgt. Clayton has found some gold? Likely once belonging to Saddam H.
This is a nice piece of social engineering. No long and boring details that most of the phishing schemes include. That added touch of patriotism is masterful. It leaves me wondering and I’m tempted to request more information.
Don’t worry though. I never mess with this stuff unless I’m assured a minimum of $20M.
