    @ karen Qiu - It would be good if you would post a copy of the email here together with the email address the scammer uses.

    It is best to delete the email without replying afterwards, :)

    Here is the text of the email.

    Amelia Aguetta <>

    Dear Friend,

    Thanks for your response to my message.

    I am writing you this mail from Camp Stanley which is one of the military bases run by the United States of America in South Korea. It is located close to Uijeongbu and is considered to be the largest part of the Red Cloud Garrison. It is located relatively close to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) and aims to ensure the peace in the area. It is run by the US Army. The history of this military base is not very rich, although old enough. I must thank you for your response, this shows your interest and I appreciate that. As you already know, my name is Amelia Argueta, feel free to call me Amelia.

    Now about my last message, in the past years, there was severe rains that caused deadly flooding and damage to South Korea, some wealthy people, including politicians were killed and their houses and companies were destroyed as a result of the severe flood. Majority of them lost their entire family as a result of this. Some great sum of United States currencies were realized by the Government in their business structures, houses that was destroyed, but mostly companies.

    During a routine patrol by my unit sometime ago, I discovered a safe buried in a destroyed building. My team was not aware of this, as I kept it secret, till I had time to personally inspect the safe and found out it contained the sum of 15,000,000 (Fifteen Million us currency). This politicians understood the laws against such amount of currency in the country, so I believed they buried it and secretly used it for their political mischief.

    At the moment, I have it privately secured and safe, without the awareness of anyone. But I cannot continue to hold it back here for long, because of my active duty

    I have a very good, trusted and reliable diplomat who can deliver the boxes to you as he will be leaving Fukuoka, Japan very soon and since he has diplomatic Immunity, the consignment will not be subject to rigorous screening. I will provide you with the name of the diplomat in charge of delivery and I will also give him your contact information that you will provide to enable him contact you immediately on his arrival. So during shipment, I will travel from Uijeongbu to Fukuoka, Japan to send it. I can make arrangement in sending to any address of your choice. The baggage will be tagged diplomatic documents and ancient graphic art material so that the diplomat will not know the contents of the boxes. I have decided to send it through diplomatic means as I do not want this going through banks around here, it will not be safe for us.

    I am sorry to encroach into your privacy in this manner. I found your profile listed in the DOD database and I found it pleasurable to contact you for help. I am looking for a trust worthy person I can entrust this funds to, till I get back from my station in Uijeongbu, South Korea. My husband (David Argueta) would have taken responsibility of this package but I lost him to 9/11 bomb blast. I feel so bad when I remember his death. His painful death made to join the US Army. It is so painful to remember that I lost him on that faithful day. Right now I am determined to fight terrorism with my last blood. I want to have a very peaceful retirement, maybe get married again.

    I am sure you will know the best way to handle such amount for us when it gets to you. Please let me have an address where you want them to send the boxes and also your phone number. As soon as I get it, I will start making arrangements to ship at once. If we are lucky and fast enough, we can conclude this within the next few days.

    I will send the whole amount, since I cannot keep any on me. But can I trust you? As I already informed you that, this is of mutual benefit, once it gets to you, you take 40 percent and keep my 50 percent and donate 10 percent to charity organizations so that our good Lord will assist and bless us in future I believe this is fair enough. Your role here is to find a safe place where it can be sent to and mine is sending it to you. What do you do for a living? Are you married with kids? Can you handle these? We need to build trust.

    I want you to know that, the knowledge of these leaving the province of Uijeongbu and Japan to any safe location, is just between the two of us, so try and keep it this way. If you are not capable of handling this huge sum, DO NOT allow me ship. I can find other means of dealing with it, as I have done everything possible to make this a reality from this end. We must keep a low profile as a result of the amount in question. Do not let me down.

    Keep in mind at all time the need for confidentiality and absolute secrecy before we conclude this. Phone conversation is not a safe measure in this endeavour. Remember to keep our secret. I cannot call you on the phone or receive fax, as I am not always at base as a result of my operational schedule and active duty. Hope you are okay with this? Everything must be done by email. Will you still help? I need your urgent reply in this regard. If you are interested, please let me know, than having hopes.

    I will be forwarding my Picture to you in my corresponding email.

    Once again thank you and God bless. Please confirm receipt of this message. I’ll await your confirmation message.

    Thanks and God bless.

    Sincerely yours,

    Sgt Amelia Argueta.

    "Did you get my email" is a line they use to get around spam filters. It would be good to at least have the sending email if not also the respond to email.

    They use short, cryptic messages like that to get around the spam filters.
