Just a couple of hours ago received the first spam message that sells Iraqi Most-Wanted Deck of Cards (yes, just like we've seen on the news). I guess everyone is familiar with the "support the troops" t-shirts, but this is something new.

Why would anyone even want that??

Get the Iraqi 'Most-Wanted' Deck of Playing Cards
Only $5.95 a Set!

Click Here Now!

You've seen these cards on the nightly news. They've been featured in newspapers worldwide. Now you can own the one true collector's item from Operation Iraqi Freedom. This is the same 55-card deck given to Coalition soldiers featuring the Iraq's 52 "Most-Wanted" leaders.
There is an image and everything...

Oh, and by the way, there are 55 cards in the deck coalition uses... The product is incomplete! Hah!

You are bidding on an actual deck of playing cards, casino quality. These are exactly like the troops have overseas!
Don't be fooled by other listings that are only selling the PDF computer printable versions or information on where you might find these cards.
I have been lucky enough to get a couple sets of these cards, don't wait "buy it now!"
Current bid US $300.00

Yeah, it is a mighty shame to see people try and make money from war and tragedy.

But it's interesting those cards, they have never ever been shown in France - maybe it's only been shown in the US?
I've heard no talk about it from across the channel in the UK and neither have I seen it on TV or in newspapers here in France...

Well... I bought t-shirts from a spam letter... good quality.. first time I ever opened a spam letter.

http://www.iraqtshirts.com

I am gonna order the cards off newsmax where they cost more.. because that site is more reliable to buy from.

Oh if you are wondering here is the link to the site selling the cards:
