Scam Email...BE AWARE!

Written 31/05/13

The following email was sent in such a way that it appeared to have been sent from a well known person in our parish. Your humble webmaster has removed the faked name to save any embarrassment to the individual. It is unlikely that you will receive such a solicitation but, should you do so, you should treat it or any other similar email with great distrust.

Good morning, I Hope you get this on time, I made a trip to Manila(Philippines) and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and personal effects therein. The embassy has just issued me a temporary passport but I have to pay for a ticket and settle my hotel bills with the Manager. I have made contact with my bank but it would take me 3-5 working days to access funds in my account, the bad news is my flight will be leaving very soon but i am having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until i settle the bills, I need your help financially and I promise to make the refund once i get back home, you are my last resort and hope, Please let me know if i can count on you and i need you to keep checking your email because it's the only way i can reach you. Thanks, NAME REMOVED
