I got this spam at gmail (hey isn't gmail supposed to stop spam) ?
I have managed to sneak out this email to you from my confinement here in one of our military bases in Germany.My name is Col. Jason Taylor of The US Army. I was based in Iraq until recently,I was sent back to Germany because of the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal in which I was unfortunately implicated. I am still under House Arrest,pending the outcome of investigation.
During my sojourn in Iraq, I was able to successfully smuggle US$ 21.7m out of Iraq to a location in Europe. ...
So the spammers think that the reputation of the US armed forces has sunk to the level of Sani Abacha's widow or something. OK OK they also think I wouldn't have noticed the imprisonment of a colonel in the Abu Ghraib scandal (and I am naive enough to think a colonel would be prosecuted).
Still grim grim news.
