Subject: Sad Trip…Help Needed……..Ann Higgins
Hello Its Ann
I’m writing this in pains. It is not my intension writing you but I have to, few day back my family and I made an unannounced trip to Istanbul, Turkey and really it was unannounced but unfortunately, things turn sour when we where robbed last night on our way back to the hotel where we lodged and all our cash, credit cards and cell phones were stolen, one of the robbers stab me at the back with a knife and am currently receiving treatments.
We’ve reported the incident to the embassy and the Police but to my dismay they seem not bothered…their response was just too casual. Our return flight leaves soon but I am out of cash to settle my hospital and hotel bills, Please I need you to loan me some money, I promise to refund you immediately i get back home. All i need is $1500… Please I can’t afford to miss my return flight back home, Please let me know if you can send me the money.
Am in pains here, need to return home for a proper medical check up.
