Am sorry i didn’t inform you about my excursion to England,i don’t have much time on the PC.Actually am in England right now but unfortunately for me my phone and all my money got stolen at the hotel where i lodged due to a robbery incident that happened in the hotel.I ought to have traveled back but am stranded right now and i need your help in order to leave here.Have been so restless for some days now because i have been without any money,moreover the Hotel’s telephone lines here got disconnected by the robbers and they are trying to get them fixed back.Please kindly lend me $2000 or any amount you can afford in order to make arrangements and return back, i will refund it back to you when i return.Am so confused right now and don’t know what to do,i had contacted the embassy and they are currently looking into my case.Please send the money through Western Union Money Transfer.Use my information below to send the money.
