Sorry I only get paid 3k a month from the VA and I don't give to charity. 4 deployments was enough charity in my opinion



This is known as the "Nigerian Scam".  You can look it in google, there are plenty of examples, but they mostly follow the same pattern.

Hi Michael,


I am glad you saw through this stupid and not-very-sneaky ploy.  Scammers and spammers are an unfortunate part of being online, although we try very hard to keep their numbers down.  We do have a very strict anti-spam policy that I will be exercising on this poor account so never fear!  Sorry about the scam attempt.
