I was reading benjicajess's blog that prompted to write this post. Con over the internet has been so rampant to the extend many unsuspicious victim were conned in broad daylight and the amount is quite exhorbitant. In thousands. It is that so easy for people to believe even with past cases highlighted over the media.
I was in Langkawi last week and upon waking up one morning I checked my mail on BB and was shocked to know that my friend has been robbed. He was in UK and travelled there for a Volunteer Training Program. Pity him for the bad experience in UK. However it is lucky for him because the Embassy came to his aid by providing travelling documents but he has to find other needs by himself.
He has no way to communicate because the hotel phone line was disconnected during the robbery and he only have access to email. He did not bring his phone, hotel phone line was disconnected but he has email access. What do you think?
This friend of mine needs my help seriously to lend him money to relocate to another hotel and get another flight ticket home even though the Embassy had cleared him with his ticketing. I was searching the email for his bank account account number so that I could send him the 1160 pound that he needed but the details are there. As a friend I have to help him. Pity for my friend to face the experience in a foreign land. This is the screen capture of his email .............(sorry I have to cover up his name)
Now this is the best part. Read on.
This person who sent me the email is actually together with me where we are conducting a workshop. Is that not funny? When we met at the meeting room I showed him the email that I purportedly received from him.
Who is the real slim shady please stand up, please stand up...............
