419 with a Military Twist

I got an email yesterday from a person identifying himself as "Capt. Joe Patton Jr." of the 395th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion in Afghanistan. Seems Capt. Patton needs my help getting a couple of "military trunk boxes" out of Afghanistan and back to the states. He assures me that the project will be "of mutual interest for the both of us and will never expose you to any form of risk." Funny thing, though. Sure, Capt. Joe Patton Jr. has a name so American it might as well be "General Lincoln Tecumseh Baseball," but his English is pretty bad.
