Here is an email I recently received. No way am I going to click on any link in these types of emails. I wonder how many unsuspecting internet users click on these links and pay the price.
I am Col. Owen White, an officer of the U.S Army. I am on the move to Afghanistan from Iraq as the last batch just left and have some items I will need to ship to you. I want to know if you can you be trusted?
Please check this site so you could understand what I am trying to say: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7444083.stm. Contact me immediately if you can assist as I will only highlight more on this transaction if you meet my conditions.
Please signify your interest by replying to my private email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Col. Owen White
