Subject: My plight!

I’m really sorry for bothering you right now, but I have no choice at the moment. I just arrived in England some few hours ago for an urgent meeting but unfortunately I got myself into some kind of mess, I misplaced my wallet which contain all my cash, c cards and some valuables in the cab I boarded while going to the hotel I booked. I’m badly stranded here and I need your urgent help, I had to beg a librarian to allow me send messages through his PC, please! can you assist me with $1,550 so that I could pay my hotel bills and see how I can recover my things? I’ll definitely refund the money as soon as I return.

let me know, I’m so worried…
Thanks.
