Please, oh please, can someone please help this poor guy?

I just got this email (from someone I never heard of), and this guy is in TROUBLE. I figure if we all chip in a hundred bucks or so, and, if need be, we can set up a go-fund me account, or perhaps a bake sale, and we can get this fine, honest man (and his cherished FAMILY as well)
home all safe and warm. All I can say is lucky for him that there are caring people like us still around today!

Good Morning

I hope you get this mail on time, please I'm presently in (Manila Philippines) with my Family due to an urgent call about our niece's kidney transplant which she needed proper medical attention and family support. Now we are stuck as We were attacked by four armed robbers on our way back to the hotel where we lodged.
As i am writing to you all our valuables, cash, credit cards and cellphone were stolen away. I have no means of communication and did report the incident to the Embassy and the Police but to my dismay they seem not bothered but only agreed to issue us a temporary passport. Now I have to pay for our tickets and settle my hotel bills with the Manager.  The hotel manager won't let me leave until I settle the bills, I need your help/LOAN financially I need you to loan me $2,250 USD, Western union transfer is the fast option for me so that  i can receive it in a Minute with my ID, I promise to make the refund once I get back home hopefully tomorrow, you are my last resort and hope, Please let me know if I can count on you as we are in panics and I need you to keep checking your email because it's the only way I can reach you.
Thanks you as i await your swift response!

Thanks for choosing ME William, I won't let you down. Could you use my credit card number until we can get some cash to you? just let me know.


  1. Don't give up, William. I am not well off but I will always do what I can for someone in such dire circumstances. I've checked everywhere, even the cushions of the couch, and I've broken into my 11 kids' piggy-banks. I hope this $3.47 can go a long way toward feeding your family, settling your hotel bill, and getting you home! If you have anything left from my humble donation, please invest it in your children as THEY ARE THE FUTURE. Best of luck and godspeed!

  2. The same thing happened to me when I visited Ireland. Good thing my relatives were able to be generous!

  3. Sounds like a scam to me. Be very careful

    1. a SCAM?!?!?!!?!?

      No way.....I know people, and this is an honest DARE you question this down-on-his-luck individual.....a special corner of hell awaits you for doubting this man's integrity

    2. Gotta be honest, my first thought was "how amazingly cool of Scott to try and help this Scam artist". Lots of gifted storytellers out there. I'll check you in the integrity doubters corner Manny ha
