Default Anyone Need A Few Million $$$?

I just received an email of which this is the beginning:

---
My name is (Staff Sgt.) Marriot Brown; I am an American soldier, serving in the
military with the army's 3rd infantry division. With a desperate need for
assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact
particulars in an address journal. I am seeking for your kind assistance to move
the sum of($30 Million U.S Dollars) Thirty Million United States Dollars to you
as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I
complete my service here.

Unfortunately, I have already committed to helping a Nigerian prince move a much larger sum out of Africa and are unable to properly dedicate my resources to helping this brave soldier. If anyone else is interested in helping him, let me know and I'll forward you the email.

Ah jeez, figures that the Nigerian scammers would pose as US military or something given the war. They are nothing if not opportunistic. Happy to say I haven't gotten one of these in a long while. :P

I was expecting the plot from Three Kings.

Scams are pretty amusing! You get the wackiest stories.
