<nettime> FW: Loan


This is the 4th of these I've received in the last day or so--all from gmail
accounts.  
 
Someone suggested that it has to do with the gmail hack that was reported
about a year ago but I've seen nothing anywhere on what might be going on.
(presumably an indication that the emails and passwords were sold in bulk to
some phisherman somewhere... seems like a rather low value use for these if
it is the case...

I just hope you get this email on time. Well I'm quite optimistic that all
is well with you. I just want you to know that I'm presently in Spain for a
conference. Kindly pardon my ignorance for not informing you about this
urgent trip and for reaching out to you this way. I'm actually facing some
difficulties here, so I thought it expedient for me to confide in you and I
will be glad to have this confidential between us.

Unfortunately for me, I got robbed with my friend right in his flat here in
Spain. Though I wasn't hurt, I'm mentally and physically ok, but my money,
mobile phone and my bags with some vital documents were taken away by these
guys. In fact I'm left with no money. I'm urgently in need of some money to
execute my major objectives of being here and to balance my bills till my
departure next weekend.

kindly lend me a sum of 2500euros [approximately $3300 us dollars] or any
amount you can afford to lend me. I will refund you with interest upon my
arrival back home. Let me know if you would be able to help me out with this
money or any amount you can afford, I can then forward you the details on
how to make the transfer directly on my name via the western union money
transfer service. I will really appreciate your concerned and fast response.

Thanks & Regards.
