This is a free e-mail address that nearly anyone in the world can sign up for. These scams are never from someone in any nation's military.

Dear Sir / Madam (Intended Victim), I have a good business proposal for you. There are no risks involved and it is easy. Please reply for briefs and procedures. Best regards, Sgt. Williams Moore
We love these damn things. Well, sort of. Yes, U.S. troops do sometimes find money in the Middle East, and lots of it. The scammers are actually dumb enough to believe that any nations' troops would themselves be dumb enough to pull something like this. These are more or less targeted at civilian women, however, who might be tempted to send a soldier something because they're undergoing some extreme hardships. Don't ever believe these "military" scams, they're never real, and neither is the money. As always, the scammers want you to reply to a free e-mail address, and they are always trying to take your money. There are five different military scam YouTube videos linked here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
