Awhile back I got an "URGENT" email from a friend....well...the email address was that of a friend, the name was accurate, but I highly doubt my good friend that I've known since I was 10 wrote me something like this:

"Hello,How are you doing?I'm sorry for not informing you about our trip to London,England.We had  to visit a resort in London,England..Unfortunately we got mugged at GUN POINT by some muggers,all cash,credit card and phone were stolen away.It was a scary experience but glad we still have our lives and passports.We've been to the Embassy but they are not been 100% supportive.Return flight leaves in few hours but having troubles sorting out the hotel bills
and the hotel manager won't allow us to leave until we settle the bill.

I was wondering if you can loan us some money to get the hotel  bills sort out and also get a cab to the airport,will definitely refund it as soon as we get back.All i need is $2000 but will appreciate
whatsoever you can afford to loan me right now.Am freaked out at the moment.You can have it wired to my name via Western..Here is the details to get it to me:

Receiver's Name : (The name was inserted in here in the email)
Location : 10b Archway Mall London, N195RG ,United Kingdom.

Here are the details needed for me to pick the money up here.

Email me the transfer details(MTCN#) as soon as you are done with the transfer including the amount sent..Let me know if you are heading out to western union and how soon will you be back.
