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?.

Is it not a crime to pretend to be a member of the military?
|GeoffQRF ||16 Aug 2012 7:59 a.m. PST|
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
