If this email really did come from “Sgt Gary Hoag” of the “3rd armored Cavalry Regiment” then he would very quickly find himself in jail and minus his millions of dollars. Because now he’s told thousands of random people who he is, where he is and how much money he’s stolen.
Except, of course, that he isn’t who he says he is and he doesn’t have any money. He is, though, hoping to get money – from you. This scammer is hoping you will start sending him money. Ignore him.
