My mom received the following email from a Cpt. Brian Morgan claiming to be a U.S. Marine in Iraq:

Dear Friend,

Good day and compliments, i know this letter will definitely
come to you as a huge surprise,I am Capt. Brian Morgan, a US
Marine, serving in the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment
which Patrols the Anbar province, Iraq.

I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up
courage to contact you. I am presently in Iraq and I found your
contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your
assistance to evacuate the sum of $10,570,000 (Ten million
Five Hundred and Seventy Thousand USD) to the States or any safe
country, as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your
care until I complete my service here.This is no stolen money and
there are no dangers involved.

Contact me via my private box: so
that I can
furnish you with more details.

Capt. Brian Morgan
United States Marine Corps. IRAQ

(Alternate versions of the email claim to have 2.5 milllion USD and 12.57 million USD and different email adresses with the name "brian morgan" in it.)

Because he even emphasizes that it is not a fraud, my mom fell for it, thinking that she was helping him transfer the money out in order to get 30% of the money. He claimed that the money was in a lawyer "David Rosenblatt"''s hands and we had to pay him to get the money. Email below:

ATTN:**** *******

I am barrister David Leonard Rosenblatt (Esq.) a practicing officer of the law, now serving under the imperial British high court, I was born in Britain, and having attained my degrees and practiced law for a number of years abroad , I was inclined to relocate my chambers back to the United Kingdom to practice and uphold the law.

We want to let you know that we received a package from a German Diplomat from the UN who told us that the package was sent from Capt. Brian Morgan in Iraq and that the package belongs to ( name here)in the United States Of America, please be informed that you will have to claim the package without any delay because the diplomat made us to understand that the package Contains classified valuables.

The package will be insured and delivered to your door step with adequate security and that will cost you $1,975.15 only. We were informed that the package demands adequate security too, hence some legal documents must be obtained to giude it through. You are required to send the charges immediately via western union money transfer,once you have done that,please email us with the slip of payment attached for file record so that we can commence with the delivery of the package to your designated address.

You are advised to go to the nearest western union office in your locality and send the sum of $1,975.15 to the name and address of our secretary found below:

Name: Amanda Smith
Address: 24 Lincoln 's Inn Fields, LONDON WC2A 3EG, ENGLAND.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation.

Sincerely yours,
David Leonard Rosenblatt Esq.
(Principal Attorney QC)

Later we were told that the money had been intercepted by the FSA customs and they showed us a large suitcase of money. We had to pay additional anti-Terrorist and anti-Money Laundering fees to get the money (a total of $17, 820.07 British pounds). We were told to pay the money 2 seperate times. My mom went to the Western Union to first pay $600 USD to say that the money belonged to us otherwise the FSA would arrest us and we had to pay and additional $2,820.07 to his (the fake lawyer Rosenblatt) bank account (because he was working for us to release the funds). Afterwards, my mom became suspicious because she kept borrowing money from her friends, who told her to see if it was real or not.

All in all, we lost a total of $11,000 USD (there were addtional surcharges added when we wired the money). Although the original Brian Morgan letter had already been determined to be a scan online, we were originally not aware that it was a fraud and there have yet been no victims' stories to this fraud.

I am sorry to hear that you became a victim of this scam.

Also, write a letter/summary of what happened to you (you can view mine at )

Then go to ... _check.htm
and send that letter to every place on that list. Make sure to contact the Attorney General's Office. We have gotten help from some of the contacts there, and my husband and I have done Press Conferences set up by Attorney Generals Offices, so feel free to mention this site and us.
