    Default the worse scam email ever!!

    This is the scam email I received today.....think the guy must've had a hell of a hangover & couldn't come up with anything better!




    Good Day,

    Sorry for any inconvenience, but I'm in a terrible situation. I came down here to Manila Philippines for a program, last night on my way back to my hotel room I was robbed at gunpoint, my wallet and other valuables were stolen off me, leaving my passport and life safe. My luggage is still in custody of the hotel management pending when I make payment on outstanding bills I owe. I called my bank for a wire transfer but it has proven almost Impossible to operate my account from here as they made me understand international transactions take 7 working days to be effective which i can't wait. I need you to help me with a loan of (1,650)Pounds to pay my hotel bills and get my self home. I will reimburse you soon as I get back Home. I will appreciate whatever you can assist me with. Let me know if you can be of help.

    All hopes on you.
    Bryan Howe




    So i've replied asking if 1650 is enough as I don't want to pay your bill and have you stranded out there unable to return and pa me, once I get a reply I'll ask if he could bring me back a bride also

    PMSL - I haven't had a decent scam email in ages. Love replying to them, especially the Nigerians. Must loosen my spam restrictions to allow a few of them through for a bit of fun :)

    Got an HMRC scam letter today saying they owed me 389. As if they would send me an email at 6am in the morning. We're way too lazy to get up at that time.
