Horrible New……………

There are so many things wrong with this garbled bit of rubbish, allegedly sent by a friend, that it’s hard to know where to start.  So I won’t.

This is from a hacked (or spoofed) email account.  My friend hasn’t left the country and would never ask me to loan them nearly £3k.

NEVER respond to one of these heartfelt pleas for money from a friend.  No true friend would ask you for money by email.  If they genuinely needed cash (and I know that happens) they would ask you in person, either face to face or they would phone you.

This is scammer who is hoping you will take pity on your friend in need and send them large amounts of cash.

Even if this was my friend, I don’t have that kind of money sitting in my bank waiting to send.


I’m sorry you’re getting the mail from me at this Point in time,my family and I came down here to Vinnitsa Ukraine for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the Iet would like to open up one secret in my heart to you once you have promises to help, i am assuring you it is not going to bring any problem now or future About us., life here in Ukraine is very difficult to me, I cannot eat three times a day, Ever I have not eat for some day now, I am really suffering here, it makes me cry each day and night when i look at my condition here, but I know that with you i will soon come out from this my present condition and have a new life with you,all cash credit cards and cell were stolen off but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let us leave until we settle the bills.I need you to loan me £2,850Pounds or whatever amount if not all?.
