SCAM - Beware!!

Post by vickstar on Thu Mar 04, 2010 10:26 pm

Hey guys i got this email today and thought i would post it here so you all see it and can warn anybody else who might consider sending money!! Smile It was sent to 'undisclosed recipients' so who knows who else received it!!

From: Meg Watts - watts_scrapping@yahoo.com.au (Looks like a legit email, but obviously set up for this purpose!)

Subject: MY PREDICAMENT

Email: This had to come in a hurry and it has left me in a devastating state.I'm in some terrible situation and I'm really going to need your urgent help. Some days ago,unannounced,I came to visit a resort center in South Glamorgan England, UK..but I got mugged by some limey hoodlums and lost all my cash,credit cards, I'm financially stranded right now and my return flight leaves in few hours time but I need some money to clear some bills, I didn't bring my cell phone along since I didn't get to roam them before coming over. So all I can do now is pay cash and get out of here quickly this is embarrassing enough.I was wondering if you could loan me some cash, I'll refund it to you as soon as I arrive home just need to clear my Hotel bills and get the next plane home, As soon as I get home I'll refund it immediately. Write me so I can let you know how to send it.




Awaiting your response asap.
Watts..

If people have time to come up with these sorts of scams then they have time to go and get a real bonafide job! Some people!!!

These scams are so lame!!! I can't believe there are people out there who would actually fall for them! (I mean, who in their right mind sends money to someone they don't even know???)

I know that people do (and why), I am just surprised with the amount of publicity scams like this get these days that there are still people out there that don't realise!
