Beware of SPAM Phishing emergency requests for money from anyone on the internet. An impromptu trip does not happen without telling others, especially if it is half way around the world. No one carries $2,000 dollars cash in their wallet in a foreign country, and that is probably the amount needed for living quite well for an ENTIRE YEAR in the Philippines. "Our" hotel bills? Who are the other people who also lost their money in the same person's wallet? The only way I would give this person money is by flying directly there and handing it to the local police to pay their supposed bills.
Enjoy another day in our southern California paradise, fellow homesteaders.

  I really hope you get this fast. I could not inform anyone about our trip, because it was impromptu. we had to be in Philippines for Tour.. The program was successful, but our journey has turned sour. we misplaced our wallet and cell phone on our way back to the hotel we lodge in after we went for sight seeing. The wallet contained all the valuables we had. Now, our passport is in custody of the hotel management pending when we make payment.

I am sorry if i am inconveniencing you, but i have only very few people to run to now. i will be indeed very grateful if i can get a short term loan from you ($2,250 dollars). this will enable me sort our hotel bills and get my sorry self back home. I will really appreciate whatever you can afford in assisting me with. I promise to refund it in full as soon as soon as I return. let me know if you can be of any assistance. Please, let me know soonest.

Thank so much.
