Hi all and anybody that remembers me. Not much time for 419 due to R.L. stuff. However, there's just no escape from this madness is there?
My sister received this on her mobile today.
A classic "Help me please, I'm stranded" scam.
The person (Mike) who this is purportedly from is known to my sis (and me) and, whilst the language is almost good enough to fool the unwary, it doesn't quite cut the mustard for us baiters.
I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,my family and I came down here to Manila, Philippines for a short vacation. unfortunately,we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash and credit card were stolen off us but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.
We've been to the Embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves in few hours from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills. Well I really need your financially assistance..Please, let me know if you can help us out?
Am freaked out at the moment!!
[Name Blanked to preserve I.D. of I.T.P. in whose name this was purportedly sent]
All I need is just $1,750 and you can have it wired to me via Western Union. Here's my info below
Name: Michael Brown
Location: 1121 M.H. del Pilar Street
Ermita, Manila City, 1000, Metro Manila Philippines
As soon as it is done, kindly get back to me with the confirmation number. Let me know when you are heading to the WU outlet now???
This lad is just an A.S.E.M. away.

I think this is another one of those scams where your friends account has been Phished or hacked. The E-mail address you've been given is similar to your friends address. If you bait this person and make them angry they have your friend's RL info and may retaliate against them.

I would like to think that tommo's friend has taken steps to protect his identity now and that he has regained control of his email account etc.
As for baiting the lad, all you would be doing is acting as a friend of the streaded lad, unfortunately everything you try to do to help him goes a bit wrong. I wouldn't see a lad bothering to try anything else against the original victim, if he'd had the mind to do stuff I think he'd have taken his chance some time back.
