I'm writing this mail with tears rolling down my cheeks, I could not inform anyone about my trip, because it was impromptu. I had to be in Manila,Philippines for a program. The program was successful, but my journey has turned sour. I misplaced my wallet on my way back to my hotel after I went for sight seeing. The wallet contained all the valuables I had. Now, my passport is in custody of the hotel management pending when I make payment.
We've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves in less than 3hrs from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills. I will be indeed very grateful if i can get a loan of $2,600 from you . this will enable me sort my hotel bills and get my sorry self back home. I will really appreciate whatever you can afford in assisting me with.Please am hanging on for a Response from you so that i can let you know how to get the money to me.
Am freaked out at the moment and i need your urgent help.

Seriously how stupid do these people think we Americans and Canadian are? I just had to share this email I received today, they even used Bills website to draw their victims into their trap. They changed the San Antonio phone numbers to route to their system still using the San Antonio 210- prefix. I'm also assuming the email is redirected to another email address?
I called Bill the Broker and we spoke about the email I received and he said I was probably the 10th person that called him about this, his good friend a San Antonio agent has also received the same email and caught it early to help out Bill. It's great that our fellow agents will pickup the telephone and give agents a call to inform them their information is being used to scam others.
I'm not sure who one would call to put a stop to this but I bet a few of you readers would know? Leave your comments and keep an eye out for such ridiculous emails for yourself and your fellow agents.
