Someone hacked Bob Sanders' email. I received the following:


Sorry to bother you with this, my family and I came down here to Lozova, Ukraine for a short vacation to visit a resort and we got mugged at gun point last night at the park of the hotel where we lodged.All cash,credit cards and mobile phone were stolen from us. thank God we still have our passport ID with us, We've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all,our flight leaves today and We're having problems settling the hotel bills, we still have some money in our account but we don't have access to it right from here. The hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the hotel bills am freaked out, I need a loan of $2000 USD from you. I will refund the money back to you once we get home.

Please do not hesitate to e-mail me back and I'll advise on how to transfer it via (Money Gram Or Western Union Money Transfer).

Thanks so much. Looking forward to hearing from you.

These people should be told to just stay as illegal aliens. Let their passports and or visas expire. They will be treated well. Smile
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

OH YES I got the same email DynoMike

I sent him an email right back asking him why he did not ask his wife? He told me that he did not have a phone, so I told him to give me her number and I'll call her for him. He stopped emailing me then.

I have had this scam played on me too many times to bite this time.

I must say this is more fun than I have had on a Tuesday afternoon in a long time.

This is more fun? Suddenly your vacation last week doesn't sound so great after all!

I haven't gotten that one, but am happy to say I'm helping a Nigerian prince get his money...just sent over my bank account info. I would have done it out of goodness of my heart but he's going to give me 10% for helping him. What a swell guy...

I got that one about Bob a few minutes ago.
Been getting a lot from the Nigerians lately,
I must be on all their mailing lists now.

What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

If anyone's interested, I'm collecting money on behalf of the B.S.S.A (Bobby's Starving Stomachs Association)
I promise the money will not be going to our nigerian cousins.
Nope. Instead, it will be used only for restaurant meals within the Barbados/Marbella/And Mauritious regions only.
Your donations could be the difference between having to continually endure my wife's cooking, or, becoming a fat cat in sunnier climates.

Paypal/Cash/Expensive Jewellery & I.O.U's accepted ! (May consider offers of a free cruise)

Bless you all for your kindness in advance,

Bobby.

I got the same email. Usually a password reset with take care of the problem. But if he cannot access his account at all, he might want to see if he can contact Yahoo mail security for help.

I wonder of the Café has been hacked; does anyone know anyone outside of the Magic Café who got one of these?

Facebook is the one they often hack and get your friends list from there.

Can't someone just send him a couple of grand to shut him up?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
