This in my inbox this morning. I assume the URL will be a website full of malware, so haven't been to it, nor will I. And I'd advise anyone getting this not to do so either.

But it's in perfect English and quite persuasive, so worth looking out for. Quite creative, really!

Greetings,

I know you would be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you. My name is Capt. George Lertas, a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team, which was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of the war in Iraq. Although the war is over but some officers are been ask to stay behind, which am among those that is still serving in Iraq.

I would like to share some highly personal classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.S 1st Armored which was at the fore-front of the war in Iraq. Though, I would like to hold back certain information for security reasons for now until you have found the time to visit the BBC website stated below to enable you have an insight into what I intend sharing with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest one-way or the other.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm

Also, could you get back to me having visited the above website to enable us discuss in a more clarifying manner to the best of your understanding, I must say that I'm very uncomfortable sending this message to you without knowing truly if you would misconstrue the importance and decides to go public. In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this message is strictly for mutual benefit between you and I and nothing more.

Meanwhile, could you send me an email confirming that you have visited the site and that you have understood my intentions, I manage to move one of the container with a help of a diplomat, right now the container has been deposited with one bank . I will like you to get back to me, if you are willing to receive the fund for our mutual benefit, then I will give you more information.

I do not need your telephone call because of where I am and my job, we can only communicate through email. I will await your thoughts via my email: georgelertas@yahoo.com

Thanks,
Capt. George Lertas

Recent reports from one fairly authoritative source have indicated that more than 10% of all internet traffic is currently generated by bots.

The randomness of your receipt of this message is an almost certain indication that the message comes from the machine of some one of the >30% of IDIOTS too stupid to run an AV scan, allowing their machine to be operated by unknown persons.

The 0.00004 probability that the particular idiot will experience further malware problems, leading to professional assistance in cleaning his/her malware thereby breaking your contact with the originator of the message before you can gain any profitable benefits from further communication, vastly exceeds the 10-47 probability that there is any profitable benefit to you from further communication, but is very much smaller than the 0.999 probability that you will be harmed by not immediately deleting the message and sitting back with a cool one.

FAGEDABOUTIT!

John

Hey Folks - I read the original posting a couple of days back and added the information that there is a new scam to my mental watch list.
Passing the thread title today, I have just realised that the thread title is NOT saying thet the scam uses something to do with people who medically treat animals. The title refers to Soldiers who fought in Iraq.
Once again common usage on opposite sides of the Atlantic cause confusion to the unwary.
Quack!
Geoff the Duck.

Trust me on this: it's a scam. First, if money, etc. are found they have to be turned in or you can be convicted of looting -- military prisons are unpleasant. Second, if he thought he could get away with it the good "Captain" would have taken it himself. Thirdly, his English is atrocious for someone who would have had to be college-educated and, possibly, a medical doctor.

Besides, all that came from a Nigerian prince and I've taken steps to get it myself.
