19 November 2012. One of the Oldest Internet Scams Involves One of the OCA First Families

One of the Cabinet sent this to me, with the puckish observation, “Your ‘friend’ has his E-mail account compromised. I got this from someone who must be in his address book… I’m not in his address book”:

This message may be coming to you as a surprise, but I need your help. Few days back, we made an unannounced vacation trip to Manila, Philippines. Everything was going fine until last night when we got mugged on our way back to the hotel, all cash and credit card were stolen off from us, but luckily, we still have our passports with us.

I’ve been to the Embassy and the Police here, but they’re not helping issues at all they asked us to wait for 3 weeks, but we can’t wait till then and our flight leaves in few hours from now, but we’re having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let us leave until we settle the hotel bills, Dealing with foreign authorities here is extremely frustrating, It would take us about 24 hours to get everything straighten out before we could leave, we are freaked out at the moment…I really need your financial assistance.

Please, let me know if you could help us out financially?

It couldn’t have happened to a “nicer” guy. It serves him right to have his e-mail account hacked after what he’s done to others… pass the jug and cheer. There IS a God in Heaven, after all, and His Justice does take passing strange forms…
