Honor Before Valor

This is an American soldier with found money in Iraq Scam. These are pretty common; I guess they feel that if you are embezzling and smuggling money into the United States, it makes it seem ok if it once belonged to the tyrant Saddam Hussain. Iíve had a few of these and itís amazing how bad the English is of all these American Soldiers. And this one here is a pacifist (coward). My emails are in blue, his/hers are in black, my comments in red. Happy reading!

Good day,

My name is Sgt. Eric Richardson, I am an American soldier, I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, as you know we are being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs. We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family in 2003.

The total amount is US$25 Million dollars in cash, mostly 100 dollar bills, this money has been kept somewhere outside Baghdad for sometime but with the speculated troop withdrawal by president Obama, we are afraid that the money will be discovered hence we want to move this money to you for safe keeping pending the completion of our assignment here. You can go to this web link to read about events that took place then via this site: we are ready to compensate you with good percentage of the funds, No stringsattached, just for you to help us move it out of Iraq.

Iraq is a war zone,so we plan on using diplomatic means in shipping the money out as military cargo 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 numbers for quick communication also your contact details.This is risk free.

With regards
from,Sgt. Eric Richardson

Hello Eric;

I received your interesting email and I want to commend you on your dedication and service to this country. I hope you have killed a lot of the filthy towel-heads - they are the scourge of the entire world. When you say you are using Diplomatic Immunity to ship this Ė what exactly does this mean? That an actual Diplomat is doing the delivery? That seems a bit odd if that is the case. Let me know what you want to know about me, and please tell me a little about yourself. What state do you live in? Do you have friends and family back in the States? I'll bet they miss you! You are doing a great thing for our country over there. Let me know what needs to be done.

Dear, Thomas Payne

I am in receipt of your mail, and contain therein noted by me, a lot of thanks for your concern in this transaction, please pardon me for invading your privacy. Like i said before, due to the issue at hand now, it becomes necessary for me to seek your assistance. i do appreciate that fact that you took you time out to reply my mail and as well ready to assist me, God bless you and your family.

I will look up to your partnership sir, I want you to understand that I have never had any transaction of this magnitude so I had to contact my lawyer for some legal advice in this regards and how to follow this, he confidently told me that he will be our legal eye on this transaction, to start with which he will obtain from the court all the required documentations.

Furthermore I want to inform you that before the lawyer can proceed he required some vital information from you so to enable him act on out favor required as follows

1} Your full name
2} Your full residential address
3} Any form of identification
4} Occupation and position
5} Personal phone number

Once heís able to get this information without delay he will proceed to the court to obtain all legal documents and please do know that this transaction is very confidential presently i am in Iraq every thing will be done with the help of my lawyer in London.

Capt john England

Oops - a little name change here!

A couple things I don't understand - first - if this money is hidden in Iraq in a trunk like you said, and you are going to ship it (by diplomatic means), what does involving any Court have to do with this transaction? It's been my experience that when you ship items overseas, you don't need a lawyer or a court order to do so. Just take the box to a shipping company, and pay for the shipping - that's all you would have to do, correct?

The second thing I don't understand is that you introduce yourself and use an email address that says "Sgt. Eric Richardson", but you signed your last email from "Captain John England". Did you forget your own name? Was it shell-shock or are you just mentally deficient? I guess the good thing about forgetting your own name is that you got a promotion out of it. You'll be a General before you know it if this keeps up...

Please answer these concerns and get back with me.

Thomas Payne

Dear Thomas Payne

Thanks so much for your mail and contain therein well noted, I will want you to understand that this money, yes it is hidden in Iraq in a trunk for us to move this funds from here you have to make it legal by the lawyer obtaining the legal document which will save as a back up to claiming this funds, that is why I have to introduce my personal lawyer.

Now this fund is still here in Iraq {war zoon} and I an trying to move it out with the help of a diplomatic company if we have to make this deal legal the we need the lawyer and the legal documents so as to be on a save side.

Please I want you to know that I did not forget my name sir, Capt. john England is my senior officer as we are working together as a team to see that we move this funds out, so he wanted me to introduce him that was why I had to end my mail with his name so that you will have to ask a question and which you did. I am always in position of writing mail as he is very busy and I keep him updated at the end of the day.

So please you donít have to worry ok. We have been able to contact a lawyer who will help us to obtain all legal documents so please I will wait the information as he requested.

I await your soonest reply.
Sgt. Eric Richardson

Eric or John;

Why canít you just take the trunk to a shipping company and ship it? What do you have to make legal? Ownership of a trunk? Last time I checked, it wasnít a requirement to have a title or deed for trunk ownership.

Are you an American?

Thomas Payne

Dear Thomas Payne,
Thank you for your email.
All i wanted was to legalise this by making you the beneficiarry of the money but i can still ship it without that in other not to prolong the deal due to its urgency. Regarding the shipment of the box to you in USA after going through your email is what i have been discussing with the director of the diplomatic courier company for the shipment of the box to USA. Have it in mind that the diplomat that will accompany the box to USA will not know the real contents of the box for security reasons because most of them run away with the consignment if they happen to know that it contains money. That is why it should be declared as family treasure/valuables.

I am British by origin and my mother is from south Africa. I am working with the United Nations, attached to the US Army. I want to relocate my family to USA as soon as this deal is through. I will be travelling to London very soon for medical check up and will give you my telephone number as soon as i arrive London.

Please note that i want to donate the major part of the money to the less priviledged in USA due to what i experienced during the war and have really seen how people suffered and died due to the outbreak of the war. That is why i really wanna give a helping hand to the poor. I will need your full names and physical address to process the airway bill upon shipment

I await your urgent reply.

Sgt. Eric Richardson

I was going to say that this whole thing didnít make sense. Why get a lawyer and court order for money you are stealing? How can you ďlegalizeĒ stolen money? What would you actually say to the court of how you received this money? That was pretty stupid. Itís much better to just ship it, and call it ďPersonal ItemsĒ, or something of that nature, donít you agree? In you first email you said you were a American Soldier, and now you say youíre not one? Whatís the deal with that?

Here is the shipping info/my address;

You can waste your money and donate anything you want to the poor, filthy people out of your share, thatís up to you. Have you killed anyone over there? Iím sorry if this sounds morbid or inappropriate, but Iím just curious. Shoot a couple of those degenerates for me, will you?

Talk to you later,


Dear Thomas Payne,

I earlier explained to you that i agree with you and will skip the legal protocols and just ship the box to you as personal item. I am an American soldier quite alright as i explained to you regarding my present duty post with the US Army.

Please go through the second paragraph of my previous email to you for more clearifications. You words are not friendly at all which make me fell skeptical about trusting you in receiving and securing the box till i come over to USA. Anyway, evrybody has his own way of life and attitude but please let us do this with one mind as brothers so we can smile at the end.

I will commence action on the shipment of the box to the address you provided and will get back to you regarding the departure date of the diplomat that will accompany the box to USA before the end of today once i hear from the security company. I am counting on you and please do not dissapoint me Best regards.

Sgt. Eric Richardson.


What is wrong with you? You are a soldier, right? Everything I said in my last email was in support of what you are doing over there and you have the nerve to say my words are ďnot friendlyĒ. Are you over there to make friends? I believe in everything that the American Army is doing in Iraq and Afghanistan and I feel we need to be there to root out the evil in those pathetic countries. If you donít believe that too then you shouldnít have chosen the army as a career and maybe you need to tell your CO that you are a coward, pacifist, or contentious objector and find yourself a new way of life.

I did read your second paragraph where you said you were of British Origin with a South African mother. To me, that means you are not American, correct? And then you said that you work for the U.N. and that you are attached to the U.S. Army Ė to me, that means you are not an American Soldier but a U.N. Peacekeeper of whatever nationality. So what is it? You talk about trust and being skeptical with me Ė well, I havenít contradicted myself or told you things that havenít made sense, have I?

I am willing to proceed with this deal and help you for a cut of the money, but you need to start being straight with me. And as for trusting me, thatís not even a question. You have no reason not to trust me Ė I havenít deceived you or told you anything that wasnít true. My only fault is that I support our American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, which you obviously donít. Do me a favor, and stab one of those little Arab children in the face with the biggest knife you can find.


Dear,Thomas Payne

How are you, and your family, I am placed to inform you that I am presently in London, so you can reach me on my personal phone line {+44 7035938475} and also to inform you that the diplomat will be leaving Iraq to day with the consignment, to America and will called you upon his arrival so please I want you to take note of this. Once he calls you he will identify him self and all I expect from you is to co-operate with him on his arrival, thanks for your co-operation so far.

God bless you
sgt. Eric Richardson

Hello Eric;

I cannot call you because I donít have Long Distance service on my phone line and I do not have a cell phone. You will have to call me, as well as the diplomat. I normally get home from work around 7:00pm EST Ė I donít know what time that is in your time. Will the diplomat deliver the consignment at night or on the weekend? Thatís the only time I am at home. I hope this will not be a problem.


Dear, Thomas

I wish to inform you that the diplomat has arrived to your country with the consignment safely, and has been trying your phone line but to no avail.

Please I will advice that you call him with this number {+1 954-993-0849}
Please you donít have to delay this any more because he has not come to stay in your country he is only on an assignment which he has to complete.

And please due keep me up-dated once you hear from him. Thanks for your understanding so far.

Sgt. Eric Richardson

I have been trying to call from my friendís house that number for the diplomat and no one answers. Please have him contact me.


No answer for over a weekÖ

Sgt. Eric;

Why havenít I heard from you or that lousy, stupid diplomat? Did you stab any of those nasty Arab children in the face like I asked? For Heavenís sakes, I ask you to do me one stinking, little favorÖ Some soldier you are. Does your mother know that you are a coward?
