Different slant from the scammers!

Received this email today, seems they are trying a less complicated approach, was tempted to copy and paste a credit agreement with OTT rates and send it back.

Seems they even used a spell checker.


"Am sorry to bother you with this mail, Unfortunately I'm out of the country in South Cyprus and found myself in a Tragic situation which i really need to take care of now, I had my bags stolen from me and personal belongings.. I have tried to contact with the necessary authorities but nothing is really working out, the bad news is my flight will be leaving very soon. I really need a quick loan from you Please.



Thanks,

Steve "
