How are you doing?hope all is well, I”m sorry that i didn’t inform you about my traveling to UK  for a Seminar.I need a favor from you as soon as you receive this e-mail because i misplaced my wallet on my way to the hotel where my money is and other valuable things were kept but i still have my passport  with me, i will like you to assist me with a loan urgently. I will be needing the sum of 300USD to sort-out my hotel bills and get myself back home.I will appreciate whatever you can afford to help me with, i’ll pay you back as soon as i return. Kindly let me know if you can be of help? so that i can send you the details.

We left out the name which was used for this.

This would not be the first time we have published information of a similar scam. They tried this using one of our Chief Minister’s email address.

We don’t think anyone would fall for this, but there are people who will. Please do not. There are many similar scams out there, don’t be a victim.
