I received it also, and I am a pissed of Army Veteran. This Soldier died in 2007. I am looking into reporting this to the FBI.

I received a message from "Sgt. Phillip Newman" saying they wish to deliver money to me from Iraq...And when I responded they had a "Charles Simpson" E-Mail me. He said the following, " Goodday,

My name is Charles Simpson. A Diplomatic military private agent sent to deliver to you a package from the Engineering military unit in Ba'qubah in Iraq, I am in London with a package registered in your name, address and tagged as personal effects and covered with a diplomatic coverage consignment trunk box. please you are to send to me your full contact details for proper verification before shippment.

If anyone else gets this email or reads this blog, here's what you need to do...

Delete the email.

It is a scam. There is no one in the military who is doing this. The scammers are most likely in West Africa and the US authorities can do nothing to stop the scammers.
