That is one of the currently popular scams going around.

Thanks, Steve.  It looked like a scam to me also, so I just deleted it.

Robert (et. al.)

 

That letter was NOT from Earl.  To be honest, since I don't know Earl personally (or even if there is or was an "Earl"), maybe it WAS from someone named Earl, or pretending to be named Earl.  But it doesn't really matter.  

 

What that letter WAS, was a scam, pure and simple.  A derivative of what is known as the "Nigerian Scam" or the "419 Scam"

 

No one is actually in the UK.  No one was mugged at gunpoint.  No one desperately needs any funds, blah, blah, blah.  

 

It's all pretend.

 

Sort of like God asking for money on late night television.

 

Don't bother sending an e-mail back to "Earl" yelling at him for being such a lowlife scum.  Whoever "Earl" is, he doesn't care.  Getting yelled at in e-mails is part of the job description.  He (or she) will just pack up his kit and move on.

Hello,

I am sorry for reaching you rather too late due to the situation of things right now. My family and I had a trip visiting (London/United Kingdom), everything was going on fine until last night when we got attacked by some unknown gunmen. All our money,phones and credit cards was stolen away including some valuable items, It was a terrible experience but the good thing is they didn't hurt anyone or made away with our passports.

We have reported the incident to the local authorities and the consulate but their response was too casual, we were ask to come back in 2weeks time for investigations to be made proper,But the truth is we can't wait till then as we have just got our return flight booked and is leaving in few hours from now but presently having problems sorting out our bills here and also getting a cab down to the airport, Right now we're financially strapped due to the unexpected robbery attack, Wondering if you can help us with a quick loan to sort our bills and get back home. All we need is ($1,250.00 USD)or anything you can afford, I promise to refund you in full as soon as I return hopefully tomorrow or next. write back now to let me know what you can do.

Earle
