Greetings,

Please spare me some of your time and dont be too surprised about my approach despite the fact that I am relatively unknown to you. My name is Col. Stanhouse Don, a former member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team, which was deployed to Iraq at the begining of the War in Iraq.

I would like to share some highly personal, and classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.S 1st Armored Division which was at the fore-front of the War in Iraq.

Though, I am going to hold back certain information for security reasons for now until you have found the time to visit the BBC website stated below to enable you have an insight into what I intend sharing with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest one-way or the other.

My Regiment ran into a similar discovery as described in the above website while serving in Iraq, and I have laid low about it until now.

Could you get back to me having visited the above website to enable us discuss in a more clarifying manner to the best of both of our understanding. I must say that I'm not too comfortable sending this message to you without knowing truly if you would misconstrue the importance and decide to go public.

In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this message is solely for mutual benefit between you and I and nothing more. I have kept this to myself only, for very long time and its time I begin to enjoy some of the fruits of my labour and services to my Country and Humanity.

Kindly send your soonest response on this email ONLY: combat.standon@gmail.com confirming that you have visited the above website and that you are ready to proceed on this with me. Please disregard and destroy this message if you are not interested. I await your thoughts earnestly.

Best Regards,

Col. Stanhouse Don(Rtd).

Dear Colonel Don,

I read with great interest your e-mail, as which you sent to me of late. It would of course be an honour to converse upon the subject matter to what you elude, concerning Saddam's hidden treasure. As for not going pubic, you have my most sincerest reassurement of my circumcision visa avis this matter.

Yours truly,
PFC James F. Treacher
U.S. Salvation Army (Ret.)

P.S. It is good to conversate with some one else who is been in "the shit." I lost both legs and a toe during the al-Eebaba Offensive.

(Hey, impersonating a military officer is a federal crime, isn't it?)

Update: Apparently this kind of thing is the latest craze amongst these scammer creeps. Which might explain why we've now got a Kenyan pretending to support our military.

Update: Colonel Don responds!
