Stranded in Manila Send Money Email Scam, Western Union

Stranded in Manila Send Money email scam, Western Union.

The email appears to come from a friends account. This is a sample scam email.


Just hoping this email reaches you well, I'm sorry for this emergency and for not informing you about my  urgent trip to Manila Philippines, but I just have to let you know my present predicament. Everything was  fine until I was attacked on my way back to the hotel, I wasn't hurt but I lost my money, bank cards, mobile  phone and my bag in the course of this attack. I immediately contacted my bank in other to block my cards  and also made a report at the nearest police station. I'm physically ok and fine but I'm urgently in need of  some money to pay for my hotel bills and my flight ticket home, will pay back as soon as i get back home.

Kindly let me know if you would be able to help me out so I can forward you the details required for a wire  transfer via the western union.


Warm Regards,

Needless to say – Never respond to such emails and promptly delete them.

<Manila Philippines> is a place holder. The scam email may include any other foreign country.
