I suppose email scams are as much of a cultural record as anything else. Sgt Jarvis was thoughtful enough to send me this message today:
I do hope my email meet you in good health. I am Staff Sgt. Jarvis Maxwell Reeves Jr. a U.S. helicopter maintenance supervisor in the 3rd Infantry Division, in Iraq. I am writing to solicit your allegiance as custodian to an asset value of 10 Million dollars that we are transferring out of this country.
My partner and I are in need of a good partner someone we can trust to actualize this venture. The money is from oil proceeds and legal. And we are transferring it through a diplomatic pouch to your house directly or a safe and secured location of your choice via courier services. We seek your utmost confidentiality in this.
Once you receive the fund, you are to take out an awesome reward of 15% and keep 85% for onward instruction on whether you’re shrewd enough in our assessment to invest the money.
If youâ€™re agreeable get yourself a deal by replying to: [email protected]
I wish to furnish you with more details.
I await your response.
Sgt. Jarvis Maxwell Reeves Jr.
