I am truly sorry to bother you with my problem,this has to come in a hurry. I had traveled out of town on a personal trip, Unfortunately for me I lost my bag (which included my cash and credit cards) were stolen at the hotel where I lodged, I am so confused right now, I don't know what to do or where to go to.
I did not take along with me my phone, so I have no access to phone calls if not so I would had called. that is why I am sending you an email. Please can you loan me about $450Dollars today? so I can return home, As soon as I get home I would refund it immediately.




What I find most amazing is she "has no access to phone calls", yet she has access to the internet and knows the email address of somebody with whom she has never before corresponded.

I wonder if I can wire here some Monopoly money... :^0

My you are such a lucky boy Nick

I'm assuming that you have sent her at least 10 times the amount asked for so she can return home right?

I'm on vacation next week and need the money myself.

Like I said, I've got some Monopoly money, and there's enough to buy a hotel on Boardwalk!

The nerve of (young) people these days...

I would have expected her to at LEAST offer to repay the amount tenfold upon her return to the magical land of prancing leprechauns from whence she was spewn - phoneless - unto some urban crater somewhere...
Isn't that the usual way of those frolicking freaks?

She has a hotel room.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Poor girl

She ought to be able to earn $450 in a couple of hours.

Three, at the very least

Probably starting with the guy who let her use the computer to send the email... :^0

I'm still trying to understand why it will take $450 for her to get home. A bus ticket from Boston to Seattle is less than $250. Waht does she want to do? Eat, as well?

Maybe it's Hawaii to Boston, or vice versa...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Three, at the very least

Of course, could be she's a suicide bomber out of Baghdad, and she came all the way to the US, but found out she forgot her dynamite underwear back home... that would explain her confusion, and phonelessness, worried about the NSA tracking the phone signals obviously.

That bus ride from LA to Honolulu ain't cheap.
