Want to become an instant millionaire? Get a job as a U.S. military contracting officer in Iraq and Kuwait.

Of course there's a downside on "the road to riches." You're also likely to get caught if you steal or take bribes.

An Army major has become the latest field-grade to find himself/herself in handcuffs after their corruption was uncovered. More and more officers getting nabbed have "flipped" and become informants and witnesses for the prosecution.

"NO HONOR AMONG THIEVES"

That old saying: "There's no honor among thieves" is so true. Especially today.

MilitaryCorruption.com has learned that a large majority of those nabbed in kickback schemes have sold out their pals and co-conspirators in "a New York second." The CID has had an easy time, "rolling them over" like bowling balls.

Because it takes a number of players to rig a favorable contract and then hide the money where the Feds won't find it - a favorite trick they use is to open a fictitious account in a Cayman Islands bank - the odds on getting away with multi-millions of "under-the-table" cash are slim to none.

NEARLY $3 MILLION FUNNELED INTO BOGUS ACCOUNTS
IN DUBAI AND THE CAYMAN ISLANDS

The latest officer to find that out is Army Maj. Eddie Pressley. He and his wife Eunice have just been indicted by a federal grand jury in Alabama.

The 37 year-old officer's wife allegedly set up a bogus company in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as well as the Cayman Islands, in order to hide the bribes.

Pressley was the key player in a scam whereby Georgia contractor Terry Hall landed a $21 million contract to delivery bottled water and build fences in Kuwait and Iraq.

OFFICER ALLEGED TO HAVE RECEIVED ALMOST
$3 MILLION IN CONTRACTOR "KICK-BACKS"

Investigators say the major and former Army Maj. James Momon (see "related stories box" below) both operated out of Camp Arifjan in Kuwait between 2004 and 2006.

Sources say Pressley steered fat contracts to his pal Hall and pocketed up to $2.8 million in kick-back money in return.

He, his wife, and Hall are free on $500,000 bail. They're slated to be arraigned in Birmingham Federal Court later this month.
