A phishing warning: David Irving warns all his friends that Nigerian-type scamsters are using stolen email addresses to ask for urgent financial aid as they have been "robbed at gunpoint in London." The full text is below. Do NOT send money. String the crooks along, ask who they are, ask for a street address, ask for a phone number, but do not "wire money" as they ask (around £400 is their starting request). You may wish to contact the real person apparently signing the appeal by other means to warn him too. Suggestion: Keep the email appeal you receive, as it contains valuable trace information, and contact your local police or FBI office.



I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get to you too urgent but it's because of the situation of things right now,i'm stuck in London with family right now,we came down here on vacation ,we were robbed, worse of it was that our bags, cash , credit cards and cell phone were stolen of us at GUN POINT, it's such a crazy experience for us, we need help flying back home, the authorities are not being 100% supportive but the good thing is that we still have our passport but dont have enough money to get our flight ticket back home, please i need you to loan me some money, i will refund you as soon as i'm back home, i promise.
