At first glance, I assumed the origin of the email below was Nigeria, or some other African country where optimistic senders are often rewarded by gullible Western greedy guts. But no. It is a person living in Mexico City that I have exchanged a couple of emails with. Never met him though. The question is, did he forget to sign out of his email account in an internet cafe? Did he get his account hacked? Or has he been kidnapped? Anywhere else and you’d assume the former two, but in Mexico, you just never know. It doesn’t look written by him though. No Englishman carries a ‘purse’ for starters. Curious….
Hope you get this on time? Sorry I didn’t inform you about my trip to UK for a program. I am having some difficulties here because i misplaced my purse on my way to the hotel which contained some cash, credit cards and some other valuable things. Presently, my passport and my things are been held down by the hotel management pending when i make payment.
I will like you to assist me with a loan of $2,415 to sort-out my hotel bills and to get myself back home. I will appreciate whatever you can afford to assist me with, I will Refund the money back to you as soon as i return, let me know if you can be of any help? ASAP.
I currently don’t have a phone where i can be reached.
