Why someone isn't/hasn't arrested and prosecuted whomever it is that sends these spam emails out is beyond me.

As clearly they're attempting to use the good name of our men and women in uniform, to scam folks out of their hard earned cash.

Reminds me of the Nigerian email scam.  Wonder if it's the same group of low-life scumbags?

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.
