Just got htis intersting email:
Dear Stefan,

How are you doing today? I know you will be wondering how i got your contact. Let me start by introducing myself. I am a US General currently serving as the Commanding General, U.S. Armed Forces Command as Commander, International Security Assistance Force Joint Command (IJC) and Deputy Commander, U.S. Forces – Afghanistan (USFOR-A).

I write to inform you of a business deal which I will love to let you know pending your reply to this mail. If you are willing do not hesitate to get back to me, I will be glad to receive your response or you add me for a brief chat for more detail about the transaction.

Best Regards
Gen David Rodriguez

What shall I do now?

Write back an request he send you ten thousand dollars for air fare and other travel related costs so you can go and meet with him to sign the documents. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you snooze you looze!

Tell him you have enough WMD's for now but could use a deal on laser triggers and safety interlocks. Oh, and exactly where is his hometown?.
Copy in Homeland Security.

So a Commanding General in the US Armed Services uses ymail? Maybe he doesn't want the wife to know.

Is it not a crime to pretend to be a member of the military?

Not as such apparently, but claiming an association to a medal may be…

"Any false written or verbal claim to a decoration or medal or any wear, purchase, attempt to purchase, solicitation for purchase, mailing, shipping, import, export, manufacture, sale, attempt to sell, advertising for sale, trade, or barter of a decoration or medal authorized for wear by authorized military members or veterans is a federal offense punishable by up to six months in jail and up to a $5,000 USD fine"

S.190 of the New york Penal code does cover theft of identity related to pretending to be a member of the armed forces, so maybe.

In the UK it is illegal to pass yourself off as a member of the police in any way.

Oh, he must be legit.

I remember when I received a letter from Norman Schwartzkopf informing me that I could make big money at home by stuffing envelopes. It changed my life…
