Received the following email today. Yes, of course it's a spin on the old 419 scam (the article refers to a stash of money found in Iraq back in 2003), but I feel somewhat riled that this is being circulated under guise of a US soldier, so if anyone feels like dicking around with these two email addresses I think it's fair game.
