Yeah I got one of those too from her. Hopefully we all know that these are completely fraudulent messages:


Hello,

How are you doing? Hope all is well with you and family, I know this might be a surprise to you but I am sorry I didn't inform you about my traveling to England for a Seminar.

I need a favor from you because I misplaced my wallet on my way to the hotel, my money and other valuables are gone including my credit cards. I will like you to assist me with an urgent loan of 2000 british pounds which is about $2800 U.S dollars to sort-out my hotel bills and get myself back home. This is one favor I will always show gratitude to throughout my lifetime.

I will appreciate whatever you can afford to help me with and I promise to pay you back as soon as I return home. Please do this for me and I will be grateful.

Will be waiting to read from you

Pamela

I've had exactly the same message apparently from someone who has never been near Belize, and with whom I don't remember any email contact. A bit of a mystery. I just deleted it.

It is a big scam - I don't know how it works but it is good to let people be aware that these are not coming from their friends and loved ones.

Last time I went to the UK I sent most of my friends an email telling them that if they were to get such a message from me to ignore it - any of us that travel can figure out how to get money from our banks even when we are overseas - no need to ask for friends to send money.

Absolutely Tim - and that is her email address - which is why I don't know HOW the scam works.
