I received this in my mailbox today:

Good day to you,
I am John, a U.S soldier currently carrying out my duty in Syria. I have a
proposal for you. I and some of my colleagues recovered some huge amount
of money here last two weeks during an operation. We just shared the money
some days ago and I want to move mine to a safe place that's why am
contacting you through this mail because this is the only means of
communication I have here.
I came across your email when I was searching for a random person online
who I can trust with this proposal. I am willing to offer you 40% of the
total money which is $3.8 million USD if you are willing to do the deal
with me and I also want you to know that this is very legit.
If you are willing to do this deal with me and I will advise you ahead on
how I will send the funds out to you.
You are to ignore this mail if you are not interested.
I will wait for your response.
Best Regards,

John

I of course know this is bogus. I always wonder where they got my email address but that's perhaps not that difficult to do. The email it originated from has an '.it' on it, Italy. Gotta wonder ow many suckers respond.

Having the "it" doesn't mean that it came from scammers in Italy. I'm not saying that they aren't, but that can be faked as well.

You can feel more vulnerable if they claimed they had found a valuable stamp collection and thought you could help them.
