Looking at my inbox one day, I found a very strange email in the junk section. It read as follows:
I will keep this brief, I just need you to lend me your ear. I hope that you will help me, I am broke.
It is not that I am poor, just that all my money was stolen in Fiji. I was on holiday with someone I thought was a friend. But when I was asleep he ran off with my bank card. He knows my pin as well. Please help me.
Then I lost my job. I was to be replaced with someone though I don't know who. Now not only do I not have any money I do not have a job too. I have had very bad luck.
So here I am and for money I have a plea. Please help me out.
I am here still. If you do decide to help me out then you will have to send the money to Fiji, which I know will be expensive but I really am out on a limb. They should catch the thief soon as he can not have gone far; he left his visa. But any money would be the biggest help ever. To lend me some money please reply.
I was going to discard it as a scammers plot, but something about the email address and subject made me pause. That bit certainly isn't part of a scammer's plot. Maybe there is a secret message.
