It’s rare that I’m shocked these days. I’ve seen so many different scams, that the levels to which a scammer will go doesn’t really phase me anymore. That was, until I received the email titled, “Dear United States patriot, we offer you an employment.”
Just read this garbage.
You received this letter because you were seeking a job at www.careerbuilder.com. We’ve reviewed your resume and would like to offer you a position in our organization.
Many of our troops are serving far away and are living in facilities that provide few of the comforts of home. Despite the many sacrifices they make for our country, they are not able to have some of the basic services we take for granted every day. In addition, troops rarely have access to their U.S. bank accounts, meaning that purchasing items they want from off-base vendors is rarely an option. As a result, U.S. soldiers are placed in a lose-lose situation in which they do not have access to basic comforts of life and cannot go out and buy them with their own money. Cash4troops is a non-profit organization based in Wisconsin that manages fund transfers to American troops deployed overseas.
We are seeking to hire people who love their country, are looking to work from home, are dependable and honest, can get the job done on time, have 1-2 hours a day to process fund transfers, and are willing to check their e-mail 1-2 times a day. Having reviewed your resume on careerbuilder.com, we believe that you are just the kind of person we need.
Here’s how it works:
Troops request fund transfers through our order forming manager, who then reviews the orders and sends instructions to you, our ?agent,? via email or phone. We will provide you with all the information you will need to complete the funds transfer. Your job will be to follow our simple instructions in order to route the money through your account to our soldiers. You don’t have to spend a penny of your own money for these transfers ? all we?ll need is your time and bank account. Once the transaction is complete, we then will pay for your time and services. You will receive five to ten percent of the total transaction promptly after the soldier has received their funds ? we realize and appreciate the effort you?ve given us in our mission to serve our troops.
Our company?s personnel is very friendly and will help you every step of the way. We will be more than glad to provide 24/7 email support. All taxes are already paid.
Please visit our website at www.Cash4troops.org today!

P.S. Every week we receive thanks from troops who are glad to be appreciated and remembered. Our service members make sacrifices every day for our country. It takes so little to let them know that we appreciate what they are doing for us. When you sign up as a volunteer, you will let our troops know that you support them, and you have not forgotten them.
I also received emails from:
Is there anything more disgusting than these morons who are using American soldiers as a ploy to run the scams? Seriously, this one absolutely sickens me.
I’m sure these jackasses are operating similar scams with different domain and manager names. If you received a similar email, please leave a comment below with the name they used.
