    Good day ,


    Thanks for accepting my connection request on Linkedin, And pardon me if my message bounced in on you, I do not have time now to introduce my self but we may do that over on skype video call after i get a possitive response from you. Please calm down and take your time to read my message for a better understanding. I have viewed your profile and find it safe to discuss with you.


    I am Capt. Jason Allen of the 1ST Battalion, 75th Regiment, currently Deployed in Syria, after two previous Deployment in Iraq.


    Based on the United States plans to gradually withdraw troops from Syria, in support of The U.S.-led coalition plans to formally hand over security responsibilities to the Syrian army and police by 2017, I have been Approved to be deployed to a Joint Multinational Readiness Center(JMRC),stationed at your country and is the only U.S. military organization in the your country. Our mission is to help beef up terrorist targeted states,mostly the United states and the European Union.


    During my stay here in Syria,i was able to make the sum of 15.7 million USD.Part of this money came from Oil deals which i got involved in while some part of the money was recovered from one of our raids on terrorists hideouts here in Syria because they keep most of their money at home for evil activities.


    I cannot move this money to the United states because i will be in Europe for about 5 years.Secondly,i am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary.I am an American and an intelligence officer for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service .I just need your acceptance and all is done.


    The only way to be safe with this money is to invest it there in your country considering the fact that i will be there for some time.So i need someone i could deal with.If you accept,i will transfer the money to Europe where you will be the beneficiary.


    I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why i went to a Linkedin website where i can be sure that the person is real. and that was where i found you. where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails.


    If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so i can call you for further inquiries when i am out of our military network.


    You can also send me a confirmation email so that we can move forward with this deal. I am willing to give you 20% of the 15.7 million USD . I wait for your response as fast as possible.


    Regards,
    Capt. Jason Allen

    Bamboozled: Man lost $50K in Facebook scam

    When we feature scams in this space, it's common for readers to wonder how someone could fall for it, whatever the scam.

    They sometimes blame the victim. Say the person should have known better. Should have researched better. Should have seen the red flags.

    But still, millions of people fall prey to scammers every year.

    As long as crooks find victims, we'll write about how it happened, hoping that you, dear readers, learn something that you can use to protect yourself or to warn your loved ones about fraud.

    That's why Frank wrote to us. He wanted us to tell the story of how he was duped out of $50,000 in a Facebook scam so others can learn from his mistakes.

    Frank said he feels "utter embarrassment and shame about the whole ordeal."

    "I was not using correct judgment," he said. "I have destroyed my life, my self-respect and the trust of my own family."

    So let's not judge. Let's learn.

    Here's what happened.

    In June 2015, Frank received a Facebook friend request from a woman named Kim. She said she was stationed in Afghanistan as a drill sergeant with the U.S. Army.

    "As we were talking on Facebook, she asked me to help her get a couple of consignment packages out of Ghana and into the States to be delivered to me," Frank said.

    He said yes.

    She immediately told him how to get in touch with a shipping company called Say Cargo Express Inc.

    "The packages contained, according to Kim, $10.5 million in cash and $70,000. in gold bars," Frank said. "She assured me that once delivery was made that I would receive a percentage."

    Frank was then put in touch, via email, with two men who were supposed to represent the shipping company. Benson Liu Xianfu was the logistics operations manager, and Andrew Critendon was person in charge of the package delivery.

    Frank said he was told "in order for things to be done legally," they hired an attorney named Tony Lithur.

    More on Lithur in a moment.

    Frank was told to send $3,000. for legal fees via Moneygram, and he did.

    That's when the scammers -- probably smelling the cash -- kicked it up a notch.

    Yes, the only reason stuff like this continues is because there are people that fall for it.

    People do and will fall for this stuff all the time. I worked in a bank a good few years ago and I've seen first hand how gullible people can be and how much they are prepared to risk just on the promise of even moderate (but above cash interest rate) returns.

    Many people would laugh these things off as being obvious scams but too many are prepared to bite. Scary really.
