Christmas Heartstrings

This just makes me ill. A new scam. Pulling on the heartstrings at Christmas time. And I don’t even know anyone by that name. I hope no one falls for this one.

Hello,

This had to come in a hurry and it has left me and my family in a devastating state.. I’m contacting you as I need your urgent financial assistance, my family and I made a trip to London,United Kingdom just for a short vacation tour but, it all ended ugly. our belongings such as credit card, cell phone, jewelery and cash all stolen from us, as we got mugged by some unknown gun men. My credit card, can’t be charged by the hotel as I already reported it as a stolen card,and the card company had canceled it, so i can only get a new one when we make it back home safely.

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..I was wondering if you could loan me Money I’ll refund it to you as soon as we arrive home just need to clear our Hotel bills and get the next plane home, As soon as we get home I’ll refund it immediately.

Let me know what you can do so I can tell you how to get the money to me.

Thanks
