(my name was here) and this came to my work

 Subject: It’s Urgent, Please Respond

 

Hope you get this on time,I made a trip this past weekend to Aberdeen,Scotland and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and credit cards in it.The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my passport,I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for me, I can’t have access to funds without my credit card,I’ve made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one.I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I can give back as soon as I get in. I really need to be on the next available flight.

 

I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me. You can reach me via email or May Field Hotel’s desk phone, the numbers are, +449524070344

 

Best regards,

Bon Blka

 

DO NOT RESPOND OR SEND MONEY TO PEOPLE YOU DO NOT KNOW. THIS IS A FRAUDULENT LETTER.
