I just got this e-mail…..

*************

Hello,

I’m writing this with great grievance . I’m presently in Madrid,Spain. with my Family for a short vacation and we’re stuck…And really it was  unannounced. We were attacked by four armed robbers on our way back to the hotel where we lodged.we were robbed and completely embarrassed.All our cash,credit cards and cellphone were stolen.

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 flight leaves in few hours but We’ve got to settle our bills before We’re allowed to leave….Now am  freaked out….Please I need you to loan some money,I promise to refund you as soon as I’m back home. All i need is $1,650 .. Please Let me know what you can do?Write me back so  I can tell you how to
get it to me..

Steve

Can you see the problem with this e-mail?

So he’s in spain and he wants $1650 dollars – surely if you were in spain asking for money you’d be asking for euros?

If he’s asked for euros I would of definitely handed all my money over to him – poor Steve!
