Most of these 419 scam emails aren’t worth glancing at, but the language in this one was too good to pass up. Including links to real news stories is a nice touch. I liked the lines:
one has to be very careful because a lot of scammers are out there to scam innocent citizens and this has made it very difficult for people to believe anything that comes through the internet but this is a different case…To Prove my sincererity, you are not sending me any money. Because most of this scam is about sending money.
But I loved the line:
I will be vivid and coherent in my next message in this regards
Sender: Capt. Anita George (firstname.lastname@example.org)

My name is Capt. Anita George , a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC MedicalTeam, which was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of the war in Iraq. Although the war has ended, for me to proved this to you, see the site below for more information,
But I refused to come along with them inrespective of the fact that the war has ended. The reason for this is that I deposited two consignment boxes with a security company in Iraq. As a result of this, I have to escape and stayed behind to make sure that I am able to get these boxes out before coming to America, knowingly, that if I am able to get this done I will live a better life. Please, I want this to be between me and you Since I am at large.
To Prove my sincererity, you are not sending me any money. Because most of this scam is about sending money.
