419 Scams New Angle- US Soldiers in Iraq

We've hit an all-time new low folks. Those 419 scammers are now using US Soldiers in Iraq as the "source" for their scamming activities. They are preying upon the actions in Iraq to make their scams sound legitimate and of course, hoping that human greed takes over and you'll fall for these scams.

Here's the latest one I've gotten, haven't seen this reported yet so I figured I'd do it...

"CAN I TRUST YOU? (Assistance Needed From Iraq)
I hope my email meets you well. I am in need of your assistance. My name is SGT JOEY JONES.I am a military attache with the Engineering unit here in Ba'qubah Iraq for the united states, we have about $20 Million American dollars here which is in our possesion and we are ready to move out of the country.
My partners and I need a good partner someone we can trust to actualize this venture.The money is from oil proceeds and legal.But we are moving it through diplomatic means to your house directly or a safe and secured location of your choice using diplomatic courier services.
But can we trust you? Once the funds get to you, you take your 30% out and keep our own 70%. Your own part of this deal is to find a safe place where the funds can be sent to. Our own part is sending it to you.
If you are interested I will furnish you with more details.
Awaiting your urgent response.
Your Buddy.
