    I knew right away it wasn’t you. Completely out of character, including small cap i’s, asking for money ect.

    Sorry your having difficulties

    Apparently this scam is happening with other people as well. If you copy and paste this message in your search engine, you will see different variations of it come up on the internet. So hopefully you weren’t targeted at the very least, and maybe, and hopefully they will quickly forget about you and move on.

    Hey:

    I am really glad that wasn’t you. I thought it pretty unlikely that you would go to the UK and not mention it, and I REALLY didn’t think you would make that kind of request for money. The whole style of the email didn’t sound like you.

      I would hope no one who actually knows me would suspect me of composing such a poorly written email.

    Uh, have you contacted everyone in your address list so they will know not to send the scammers money?

      No. Nobody who knows me would believe that email. Anyone who does deserves to pay a 850 pound “stupidity tax.”
