Subject: Kindly do this help for me please
How are you and your family? I’m just optimistic all is well. I just want you to know that I’m presently in the UK for a Seminar. I’m really sorry I didn’t inform you about the trip. It was so Urgent and I just have to be at the seminar. Please I want to confide in you and I want it private between us because I don’t want my other family members or friends to get worried over this predicament of mine. I was attacked on my way to the hotel I lodged, although I wasn’t hurt because I complied immediately but my mobile phone and luggage were stolen. What bothered me most is my Cards but I have called the card company and blocked my cards and I have also been to the embassy to reschedule my flight. Aside these, I need to sort out some vital issues including my bills.
Please I need financial assistance. I would like you to help me with £1750pounds or any amount you could afford. I will refund you with interest upon my arrival back home. Let me know if you would be able to help me with the money or any amount you could afford. If you will be able to help me with the money then you can go to the nearest western union outlet or into any nearest bank and use the western union money transfer service to transfer the money to me directly. Below are the details you will need to make the transfer on my name at the Western union office. After the transfer, just email me the money transfer control number [MTCN] on the receipt. I will be able to receive the money here immediately with my passport.
Name: Samantha Kramer
Address: 203 Bath Street Glasgow G2 4HZ Scotland, United Kingdom.
Looking forward to your positive response.
Many thanks in advance,
