    Is this a scam...I got this in my e-mail

    From Sgt Dave Godwin

    via email : sgtdave5550@myway.com

    Good Day,

    I found your contact particulars in an E-mail address guide they
    provide us here, as I desperately needed an urgent help to do this deal. I
    am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of $12m {Twelve Million
    U.S Dollars only} to you in United States, as far as I can be assured
    that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service
    here.

    SOURCE OF FUND:

    A lot of money in various currencies were discovered in barrels at a
    farmhouse near one of Saddams old palaces in Tikrit in Iraq during an
    operation Conquest in Fallujah north of Baghdad, and it was agreed by
    Staff Sgt. Kenneth Buff and I that some part of this money be shared
    among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the
    money first. This is quite an illegal thing to do, but well tell you
    what? no compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our
    lives in this hell hole, of which my brother in-law was killed by a road
    side bomb last time.

    The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind
    of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British Contact
    working here, at Southern Basra British fortified green zone, whose
    office enjoys some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe
    location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real
    contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to a British/American
    medical doctor who died in a raid here in Baghdad, and before giving up,
    trusted me to hand over the package to his family in United States. I
    have now found a very secured way of getting the package out of Iraq to
    you, for you to pick it up, and I will discuss this with you when I am
    sure that you are willing to assist me, and I believe that my money
    will be well secured in your hand because you have fear of God.

    I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the
    assistance you will give me. One passionate appeal I will make to you is
    not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you have reasons to
    reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leakage
    of this information will be too bad and catastrophic for soldiers here
    in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, but I hope to have
    a shift very soon for me to return back to the States. I have been shot
    and wounded twice and I have survived two terrible suicides bomb
    attacks just by special grace of God, this and other reasons I will mention
    later has prompted me to reach out for help, I will honestly want this
    matter be resolved immediately, Please contact me as soon as possible
    with my private email;address which is my only way of communication for
    now.
    sgtdave5550@myway.com

    I thank you so much for everything and anticipate that you will be
    trustworthy and handle this transaction to the best of your ability to
    benefit both of us.

    God Bless you and your Family

    Yours

    Sgt. Dave Godwin

    In a word... YES.

    Delete the e-mail and move on with your life. Nobody will be sending you anything except a major league headache if you follow through on this.

    You have read a bunch of nonsense. Just by reading that the first time I ever got one I laughed so hard! If it looks like it is unreal to you, you know it is fake garbage. You will be getting them all the time in your email box, they never stop, they will have different stories but they are all a fraud. Most people who send them are from Africa. I get them in my email box all the time. TRASH EM ALL THE TIME, not one is legitimate, just a big scam looking for suckers online all the time.
