I open my email this morning and there is this email from Cyn.
"Hey, Am in a deep mess right now,I came down here to London,England for a short vacation unfortunately I was mugged at the park of the hotel where I lodged,all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off me but luckily for me i still have my life and passports with me.
I've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and my return flight leaves in the next few hours from now but I'm having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until I settle the bills. The hotel manager have been so kind by taking me to a local library to shoot an email to you as i have explained to him that the bills is going to be taken care of by you.
Am freaked out at the moment."
Who the heck is Cyn and why on earth would she think I was going to pay her hotel bills?
Wow, this is a new twist to the Hey, you won money, scam.
Did she send this to everybody in her address book? Why does the name sound familiar?
Sorry, sweetie, I might have been of help if I had a long distance call from you and you reminded me which part of my immediate family you are from.
I wouldn't mind a short vacation in England.
I'm sorry she got mugged. I hope she resolves her problems. Next time the hotel should probably run your credit card when you check in. Have a safe journey home.
:)Bea Just shaking her head at this one.
