Greetings from Iraq,

Perhaps this email may come to you as a surprise. I got your contact

from a search on the internet and I am taking the chance to contact you.

My name is Sgt. Barry Crawford.I am an American Soldier serving in the

Military in the peace keeping mission in Iraq . I am in dire need of

your assistance.

I am making a concealed request to you for an assistance to move the

sum of ($10,000,000.00 US Dollars) Ten Million US Dollars to you for safe

keeping.I am left with no other way out,hence I am on the internet

trying to establish contact with the outside world to seek a reliable and

trusted person who can render assistance to me.I hope to be concluding

my service here in Iraq in the next 5 months before I return home.

The money in question was discovered in some barrels at a farm house

near one of Saddam's old palace in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue

operation.While we tortured 3 terrorist we captured during the operation to

extract information, they confessed being rebels for Ayman Al-Zawahiri and

followers of Mahmoud al-Hassani, a Shiite cleric known for anti-American

views. They took us to a cave in the farm house which served as their

operating base. It was here me and staff Sgt Richard Burnette made the

discovery of the money. We agreed to keep aside some of the money for

ourselves before disclosing it. Altogether there were 100 millon

dollars in the Barrels but we are disclosing only 80million dollars, keeping

10 million dollars for ourselves. I know you may wonder why, but no

compensation will make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in

this hell called Iraq . Master Sgt Richard Burnette just recovered from a

very serious injury which almost claimed his life. Thousands of

American families have lost their loved ones to the war. Reports show that

atleast 3,576 members of the US. military have died and 26,350 wounded

since the Iraq war started in March 2003.

Please visit this link to see how much of my collegues have died so far

in our quest to do our nation proud.





The experience so far here in Iraq has been hellish. I am sincerely

hoping you are a honest person who will help us to keep this money in safe

custody until our assignment here in Iraq elapses and we return back

to the United States .We assure and promise to give you 20% of this

amount if you help us to keep custody of this money until our return.

Also we plead that this information be kept top secret between you and

us to protect our job with the US Military.

We have been able to get the money out of Iraq in a box to a safe

location through our colleague here who is with the British Army.

We are beleiving that you will help us keep custody of the funds until

our return. But should you have any reasons to decline this

request,please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too

bad for us soldiers. Please this email is of utmost confidentiality.

Thanks for your anticipated help.Please send all responses to

barry_crawford@k.ro . After receiving a response,I will be briefing you



Sgt. Barry Crawford

please comment and post yours here and let's see the winning yahoo yahoo mail posted to you.

Dear friend,


I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA. I am writting to seek your coperation over this business deal.

In my department, I discovered an abandoned sum of$15million USD(Fifteen million US dollars)only , in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that took place in Kenya,East Africa,the Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY,a citizen of Atlanta,United States of America but naturalised in Burkinafaso,WestAfrica and  contractor with ECOWAS,(ECONOMIC COMMUNITY OF WEST AFRICAN STATES).

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be released  unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately , all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to makethis businness proposal to you and release the money to  you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and this money Could  go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill. 

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remainedunclamed after four years, the money will betransfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The request for your assistance and maximum co-operation as a  foreign citizen  to stand as the next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

40 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner, inrespect to the provision of a foreign account. 10 %will be set aside for expences incured during the business and 50 % would be for me.There after I will come over to your country for disbursement accoding to the percentages indicated.  Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must apply first to the bank as the relation or next of kin to the

deceased,indicating your claims and wherein the money will be remitted .

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of application which you will fill and submit to the office of the foreign remittance director of the bank of africa. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is stricly confidential and i will use my position in this Bank to effect a hitch free transfer of the fund.

You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Please , visit the website below for more informations about the Plane Crash and the tragic death of the deceased and his entire family, Late DR.GEORGE BRUMLEY. http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html

After much prayer my spirit has directed me to confide in you this top

confidencial issue regarding my present predicament.

Brief information about myself, my name is Mariam Mustapha, the only

surviving Dauther of late Mr Mustapha may his soul rest in perfect peace.

Before the death of my father, he was a cocoa merchant and he was also

in the government of my country. He was assasinated with  my mother

and my two elder brothers by the rebels during the heat of the war in my

country. The rebels claim that my father was in surport of the

government during the war that devided my country into two part.

Luckily for me, I was away in the burden school in Ghana a neighbouring

country. It was on the BBC Africa that I heard about the tragic death

of my parents and brothers but my father was still alive at the time of

gun shot and was ruched to the hospital. I was taken to the hospital

where he was recieving treatment for gun wounds. One week before his

death, he called me to his bed side at the hospital and handed a document

to me. The document is covering a deposit of eight million US dollars

(US$ which he deposited in a security company vault in

Africa. According to him he said this money is meant to establish his

business in europe after his retirement. He instructed me to look for a

trust worthy partner in over sea to confide the release of the fund into

his account and relocate to his country to establish the money on a

lucrative business and live my life quietly.

Why am contacting you, I need your assistance in the following:

1.Help to pay for the clearance document charges.

2.Help to invest the money on a lucrative investment in your country.

3. Send me an invitation letter to arrange my travel to your country

soon as the transfer is effected into your account.

4.Help to manage the investment for the minimum of five years.

5.Serve as my partner and guidiance in your country during my

relocation to your country.

Regarding this transaction, I offer you 20% as compensation and 5% your

expences over the transaction immediately the transfer is made into

your account.

Note: If you are interested in this joint venture, signify by replying

me as urgent through my e-mail . banmariam85@yahoo.com . and I will

scan to you the document covering the money and the contact of the

security company in Africa so that you can contact them as my father's partner

and beneficiary to start the transfer to your country for qucik


Waiting for you urgent reply. Email----banmariam85@yahoo.com

While i was still in glasgow i received these mails on daily basis but always deleted them, but one question you shld ask urslef if an offer letter for a job overseas filters into your box is whether u applied for such a position or not, and the position being offered, r u qualified for it or not, there is nothing these boyz wont do, also feel free to discuss such things with other peeps, u never know who has experiences in such,


Thanks for putting the Statoil job offer scam up. We are the real TravelEssence in the Netherlands and these people have been using our name as the agent contact. We have nothing to do with this and it is quite sad that some people may have actually paid money and been taken in.

The real TravelEssence www.travelessence.nl offers holidays to New Zealand and Australia to people based in the Netherlands. We do not offer travel to the Netherlands, nor any sorts of immigration documentation service. Nor do we work with Statoil.

If you have received a job offer from Statoil as per the above, then sorry but they are suckering you. Don't pay them anything.
