Supporting the Troops Keeps Getting Harder and Harder

I just received this heart-wrenching email from a solider serving in Iraq who desperately needs my help:

My name is Sgt kenny Baker, Jr. I am in the Engineering military unit here in Ba'qubah in Iraq, we have about $10, Million US dollars that we want to move out of the country. My partners and I need a good partner someone we can trust. It is oil money and legal.

We are moving it through diplomatic means, to send it to your house directly or a bank of your choice using diplomatic courier service. The most important thing is that can we trust you?. Once the funds get to you, you take your 15% out and keep our own 85%.

Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to. Our own part is sending it to you. If you are interested I will furnish you with more details. But the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all times. I look forward to your reply and co-operation. You can reach me via email.

Waiting for your urgent response.
Sgt.kenny Baker.
I just don't know. It sounds pretty fishy, but I do support the troops!

It's nice to see email scam artists getting more topical. Meanwhile, I suddenly have a burning desire to watch Three Kings
