This seems to be doing the rounds in various forms...the moral is not to send money to anyone based on messages like this, of course...
Hope you get this on time, I made a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland and had my bag
stolen from me with my cash and personal effects in it. Unfortunately for me,
I've made contact with my bank but they are not providing a fast solution. I
need you to lend me some money to sort my self out of this predicament, I will
pay back as soon as I return.
Western Union transfer is the best option to send money to me. Please let me
know if this works out for you so that i can forward you details on how to get
it to me.
