Greetings,

My name is Captain Rich Thompson, I am an American soldier in peace keeping force in Iraq, I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, as you know insurgents everyday and car bombs are attacking us.

We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussein’s family. The otal amount is S$10,570,000 in cash. We want to move this money to you, so that you may keep our share for us till when we will come over to meet you in your country. Me and my partners will take 70%. while You take 30%. No strings attached, just help us move it out of Iraq, Iraq is a war zone as you know.We plan on using diplomatic courier in shipping the money out in a large silver
box, using diplomatic immunity.

If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us. Can I trust you? When you receive this letter, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your most confidential telephone/fax numbers for quick communication also your contact details. This business is risk free. The box can be shipped out in 48hrs depending on our agreement. Contact me via my private box: captrich01@hotmail.com so that I can furnish you with more details

Respectfully,
Captain Rich Thompson

Our email response to Capt Rich.

Dear USMC Officer Thompson

Well Capt Rich just to let you know we notified NCIS (yes they are real) about your proposed “no risk to us” venture and they will be investigating it.  We are certain the $10,570,000.00 in U.S. currency that you have hiding under your bunk in the green zone belongs to the fine people of Iraq and they would very much appreciate its return.

Members of the USMC do not enjoy diplomatic immunity or any special privileges in Iraq and therefor we believe we have spotted a major flaw in your plan.  Diplomatic curriers would not deal with an officer in the USMC unless he or she is attached to an embassy as a diplomatic attache.  As this is not what you indicated in your email it is bothersome to us that the diplomatic services are dealing with a Captain in the Corps.  We wont even get to the fact that the USMC does not list any active Attaches in Iraq at present.

We are worried about the fact that the First Armored Division (Old Ironsides) is not part of the Marine Corps but rather the Army.  The Old Breed (USMC 1st Marine Division) is comprised of : Headquarters Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Regiment, 7th Marine Regiment, 11th Marine Regiment, 1st Combat Engineer Battalion, 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Tank Battalion, 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion.  I hope your not Army, because representing yourself as a Marine would be bad and NCIS will want to talk to you about that as well as the defrauding of the Iraqi people.

Your English also lacks something befitting an officer in any of the armed services, and an officer would never identify themselves as a soldier.  Also the incorrect language and fractured tenses in the message seem to indicate an individual with only a rudimentary understanding of English sentence structure.

You referenced in your message also that “We want to move this money to you, so that you may keep our share for us till when we will come over to meet you in your country.”  A member of the USMC would never fail to identify the United States of America as anything but their proud homeland and the proper expression is “Our country”.

We begin to thinks that you may not be one of our fine uniformed men (or women) serving in Iraq, and are rather an unscrupulous ass clown trying to cypher money from IBW Publications Inc.  How dare you you butt monkey.  Good thing we did report the actions to NCIS first, they can deal with your impersonation of a Marine Corps Officer.

thank you and good day

  1. I just received the following letter:

    Dear Friend,

    Good day and compliments,I am Captain Rich Thompson, a US Marine, serving in the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment Anbar province, Iraq. I am presently in Iraq.I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of (Ten million Five Hundred USD) to the States or anysafe country, 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.Contact me via my private box:

    Respectfully,

    It seems to be sent from the same person. The writing is slightly different and the e-mail is 1 digit different, but it must be from the same source. I really can’t believe anyone could be that naive to respond, but apparently some do. I will forward my letter to NCIS as well.

  2. HAHAHAHAHA, this person obviously hasn’t learned a lesson considering I just got this email, except this time his English seems to have improved somewhat. Also, the story has changed a bit:

  3. This is great! It really shows me where to expand my blog. I think that sometime in the future I might try to write a book to go along with my blog, but we will see…Good post with useful tips and ideas

    You seem to be making quite a few posts to our little site as of late and while we are encouraged by your kind words we fear (like so many mana wyrms) that you may be spamming our making fun of spam posts. Thanks – The Management

  4. still trying

    Hello,

    I am Capt.Rich Thomson, an officer of the U.S Army. I am on the move to Afghanistan from Iraq as the last batch just left and i have some items i will need to ship out of Iraq for safekeeping. Can you help? If yes kindly send me an email to my private box
    capt.richtoms@gmail.com for more info. Thanks

    Capt.Rich Thomson
    2nd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division Commandos

  5. So he has switched Brigade and Divisions but still seems to miss a lot of the military etiquette one would expect from an O3.

    For example the entire 2nd Brigade Combat Team is, as far as we can tell completely back home after their 2009-2010 deployment. Although there is always the possibility that we don’t know where they are and that he probably shouldn’t be revealing their location or their planned deployment… you know just in case the bad guys are reading IBW Pub’s site. We will forgive the shadiness of the proposed deal in lieu of the fact that wikileaks has probably already outed this troop movement and exactly what he is looking to off shore.

    The term “Commandos”, while historically accurate is not actually part of the 2nd Brigades name. They are the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. The fine Marines who serve in that Combat Team are often referred to as commandos, but alas it is not the proper name for the brigade and division he claims to serve in. Any O3 would know this, or for that matter E1.

    We are sad to see this particular scam is still going on, but we are proud that the wise Americans the scammers are trying to defraud have caught on to the hoax.

  6. I got the same e-mail today hoe frickin stupid do these Censored think us americans are to fall for some stupid ass e-mail like that I wish that the internet police or whatever you want to call them would go after these sand Censored and prosecute them
    Peter – Your visceral hatred and ignorance is astounding. It is truly people like you who help perpetuate the image of “stupid American” or “Raciest Republican”. (even if you are not a conservative that is what you will be labeled as). There is no “internet police”, likewise are there sufficient international laws to stop this type of fraud. Understand that these Hoaxes originate not from the middle east but usually Northern Africa, China and for some odd reason England of all places. There is typically no direct link with a terrorist organization and the intent is solely personal gain. Meanwhile your comments are those of a narrow minded individual and do not advance any political movement, they serve only to hate and distort the truth of the situation. If anything your comments prove that you are the perfect target for this type of hoax. – The Management
