    Sure, it is veeeery legitimate transaction.
    The only "transactions" that will be occuring though, is you sending money to the scammer...

    That's a new low. They've gone from exiled Nigerian princes to US soldiers now I see..

    Definitely not new. The "US Soldier" scam format has been going around for a while now.

    One reason I think they use it is because an American is more likely to trust a member of his country's military, than some "Prince Mbebawe Ngiakalmboboowa"
    from a third world African nation.
