Recieved this yesterday from an email address in my address book (see below in quotations). this person is close to me and on vacation, but definately not in London, so I knew it was a scam.

"I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,I came down here to London,United Kingdom for a short vacation unfortunately I got mugged at the park of the hotel where I stayed,all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off but luckily for Me is that We 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 flight leaves in less than 3hrs from now but am having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until I settle the bills,We are freaked out at the moment. Please help me out of this mess now!!!"

Rolling Eyes

They wanted money wired to St. James's, London N19 5RG, which is a bar from what I can tell from google maps.

Any ideas on how to bait this person?

It is a scam, but it's also a "begging" format, for which we don't generally advocate baiting.

They haven't promised you anything in return, so it's not 419.

Au contraire! The lad has hijacked someones email/Facebook account and has sent mails out to all the persons friends and contacts. He is not a beggar but a common or garden scammer. Bait away. I feel several abortive trips to MG or one of our special WU services are appropriate for this lad.

Of course the only issue here is how much info the scammer has about you. He certainly has your RL email addy as a minimum. If the account that has been stolen is a Facebook account then there may be much more of your info that lad can access. Bait with care. You might want to contact any other friends who may receive this scam-mail.

Oh well, that'll teach me to read first posts properly. Those two words of "address book" change the whole context of the post. Laughing
