Subject: I need help!
I’m sorry for this odd request because it might get to you too urgent but it’s because of the situation of things right now.
I’m stuck in London,England with my family right now, we are here on a short vacation then I was robbed, worse of it is that bags, cash, cards with my cell phone was stolen at GUN POINT, it was such a crazy experience for us and we need help flying back home, the authorities are not being 100% supportive but the good thing is we still have our passports and return tickets but currently having troubles paying off the hotel bills and also getting a cab to take us to the airport.
All we need is $1,850.00 but anything you can spare right now will be appreciated and I promise to refund it to you as soon as I arrive back home safely.. You have my word and you can get it to me through western union, Please get back to me so that i can give you my details to send the money to.
