Details of Scam Report
The scammer replied to a flat rental ad which I had placed on To reply he must have filled in a form in the website because there is no direct access to my email address. When I got his (innocent looking) request for additional information I sent him my phone number and email contacts. At this point a got the email which I append below.
For those of you who can figure out what these data mean, after the text of the email I appended also the beginning of the source of the email with some data about server IP etc.

Hello ken nycoln 28 novembre 2013 21:02 A: Elisabetta Rossi Hello dear , How are you and your family today, I pray you are all safe and good. I wanna thank you so much for your response on your property and I wish to let you know that I am sincerely interested in your property and I am surely taking this property on your prize and I am hoping as well that we can work together on a better and higher platform considering my relocation to your Country, I sincerely want to trust you. I am a war veteran with the NATO troop in Afghanistan, on war against terrorism. I served in the 1st Armored Division in Baghdad Iraq and now serving in Afghanistan. I will need this property for my private purposes as I will be relocating to your Country because of some security reasons and this is why I contacted you so that we can put head together towards my plan to invest in your Country. As a result of this, it will be important for me to reveal to you that I have in my possession the sum of €18.2 million. which I got from crude oil deal in Iraq. I have been deployed to Afghanistan but I have this box in Iraq and as soon as I hear from you of your reassurance to assist me then I will communicate for the delivery with the help of a red cross cargo jet. I have this money stored somewhere very safe in our camp in Fallujah Iraq waiting for a moment like this to put the money in good use and now that I have been moved to Afghanistan I want the box moved without delay. I have a very profitable investment plans on hand. I cannot move this money to the United states because I will be in your Country for about 5 years, so I need someone I could trust. If you accept, I will transfer the money to your Country where you will be the beneficiary because I am currently settling some scores with the pentagon so I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary. I am an American and an intelligence officer for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service. I just need your acceptance and all is done. Please if you are interested in this transaction I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully. I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured site where I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you. Right now I am very careful with the way I communicate so as to reduce any kind of risk until this money is finally in your custody. I shall be communicating to you through email and would also give you a call when it is necessary so as to inform you on any important information. I want you to be brave as I have everything under control. I have every proof of this fund in my possession to show you that everything is authentic. If you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message, if no response after 3 days I will then search for someone else. I am doing this on trust,so I would want you to put aside any act of greed or the thought of cheating as we have a lot to gain in this business relationship. €18.2 million is a lot of money which is the dream of anyone. I am in Afghanistan right now and need to secure this money and send it to you if we reach a proper agreement. I am writing you from a fresh private email address, please delete this message if you are not interested in working with me. I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 5 days the fund should have been delivered to you and I will come over for my money. I will give to you 20% of the sum and 80% is for me. I hope I am been fair on this deal. Regards, Kenneth J. Nycoln. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Delivered-To: Received: by with SMTP id ck16csp49861pdb; Thu, 28 Nov 2013 12:02:34 -0800 (PST) X-Received: by with SMTP id i10mr2287809oem.56.1385668954449; Thu, 28 Nov 2013 12:02:34 -0800 (PST) Return-Path: Received: from ( []) by with ESMTP id h3si38087954oep.146.2013. for ; Thu, 28 Nov 2013 12:02:34 -0800 (PST) Received-SPF: pass ( domain of designates as permitted sender) client-ip=; Authentication-Results:; spf=pass ( domain of designates as permitted sender) Received: from SNT150-W79 ([]) by with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.4675); Thu, 28 Nov 2013 12:02:33 -0800 X-TMN: [2B/EL5TM5pORz7gGRYUvb90ft5vHyrau] X-Originating-Email: [] Message-ID: Return-Path: Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=\"_5dd4043b-b9fe-4450-932a-383670d3c79d_\" From: ken nycoln To: Elisabetta Rossi Subject: Hello Date: Thu, 28 Nov 2013 20:02:33 +0000 Importance: Normal In-Reply-To: References: <>, MIME-Version: 1.0 X-OriginalArrivalTime: 28 Nov 2013 20:02:33.0936 (UTC) FILETIME=[C7002500:01CEEC74] --_5dd4043b-b9fe-4450-932a-383670d3c79d_ Content-Type: text/plain; charset=\"iso-8859-15\" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
