How are you?.......I hope you are having a wonderful day, well i must say
that i am sorry if you think this may be bothering to you but i have no
choice at this point in time, I am currently in a west African country
Nigeria as i traveled there for meeting, sorry and accept my apology that
i didn't inform you that i was traveling , I am currently having some
problems at the moment, When i came down from the airport i flagged a Cab
to take me to the nearest hotel which i paid for before i entered. But
to my utmost surprise when i got to the hotel and was about checking in,
I noticed my wallet (which contained my passport,ATM card, some money and
other valuables) was not with me again. I talked to the Hotel manager who
out of pity saw that i was a foreigner allowed me with the condition that
i would pay before he allows me take any of my belongings out when i want
to finally leave. I explained to him that i would contact my friends and
families to help me.
I am currently very broke and the pay day from the deal i am having is
scheduled for this next month end, I have no where to go, no where to
run to and no one to help me, please i want to ask for your assistance
cause there is no one else i can turn to, hope you understand. I would
hope and pray you would be considerate enough to help me,Please i would
like you to help me with the sum of $2500 to help me get my flight
rearrangement and settle my hotel bills so i can get back to the country. I
promise will get your money returned as soon as i get back to the country.
The email didn't go straight to my junk-email folder like most Nigerian scam emails, the thing that made me really suspicious (other than the mention of Nigeria) was that I was amazed he could fit his passport in his wallet.
I found another site that has a copy of the note, the author of that site says his email account was hacked and the email was sent out by someone other than him.
