Just hoping this email reaches you well. I’m presently in Spain on a
business trip. It was an urgent trip, so I didn’t even inform anyone.
Everything was fine until I got robbed on my way back to the hotel. Though
I’m fine and not hurt but my cards, mobile phone and my bag containing some
cash were taken away by these guys. I had to block my account and my bank
cards immediately the incident happened. I thought it expedient for me to
confide this in you and I will be glad to have it confidential with you. I’m
urgently in need of some money to complete my major aim of being here and to
balance my bills till my departure next weekend.
Can you please lend me a sum of 2600euros [approximately $3500 us dollars]
or any amount you can afford to lend me? I will refund you back upon my
arrival back home. if you would be able to help me out with the money or any
amount you can afford, kindly email me back so that I can forward you the
details required for the transfer the money via the western union money
transfer service. I don’t yet have a local phone (still gathering my
bearings and such), so email is probably the best form of contact for now. I
will expect your response soon.
Thanks & Regards
