WARNING: scam messages from friendly forum members
(i post it here, as maybe many other forum members will
receive the same scam message)

i just received a private email from a forum member with
whom i did have a very friendly contact. in the email
it claims that he urgently needs money, as he is stuck
on a travel. however, the reply address is faked, so
if you reply to the email, it will go to a different address.

so evidently, someone is stealing his identity (stealing
email account and contacting his friends) and trying
to lure them to send money. for me this is a new level of
scam. so please be very careful. below is the email
i received. i removed the name of the forum member.



Just hoping this email reaches you...Well,i'm sorry for this emergency and for not informing you about my urgent trip to London,United Kingdom but I just have to let you know my present predicament. Everything was fine until I was attacked on my way back to the hotel, I wasn't hurt but I lost my money, bank cards, mobile phone and my bag in the course of this attack....I immediately contacted my bank in order to block my cards and also made a report at the nearest police station. I've been to the embassy and they are helping me with my documentation so i can fly out but I'm urgently in need of some help from you to pay up my hotel bills and my flight ticket back home...My return flight back home is scheduled to leave in few hours from now...Now am freaked out....Please i need your help..

Hope to read from you soon.

Thanks and Regards.

Noels email account has been hacked. i recieved it too.
This is a growing style of scamming that we have come across for the last few months.

change your emai passwords on a regular basis, ensure you correctly log off your account when finished, keep computer security up to date and enable any extra security if your email host provides it.

Noel probably can't access his email and anyone else who's account has been compromised.

If this happens to you then contact your email provider.

All the best folks

Me too

I got the e mail this morning.
Obviously a scam, the return address was wrong to start with.
I don´t see Noel giving up that easily either.

Add me to the list. I received the same email :thewife:.

Hey Noel,

I've sent you money to cover the hotel bill and return flight home, but NO way am I paying for the porn charged to room service.

By the way, how many times did you need to watch " Lady Boys do Bangkok Nights".. What the hell was you doing Noel ?..
Taking notes to make "Lady Boys do Bangkok Nights 2" :stickpoke.

Anyway, have a safe flight home and you owe me buddy !

People are getting way toooooo lazy. The exact same thing happened to a friend of mine about 4 month ago. I got basically the same letter from "him". Word for word. Then, Joe told me the same exact thing about his friend a couple of weeks back. I mean, at least paraphrase is a bit.

Why was you sharing your room with the Hotel manager ?

I know London was where the swinging 60's started, but that sort of stuff does go on nowadays unless your name is Graham Norton.
