I thought his one died a death years ago but today I have received the following email (twice in succession). It really brought back memories of earlier SPAM messages when they weren't really understood by most people for what they were.

I'm writing this with tears in my eyes, I and my family presently on a short trip to Rome, Italy. Unfortunately, I was robbed in the hotel I booked, all my valuables which includes cash, cell phones were stolen during the attack but luckily I still have my passport with me.

I've been to the Embassy and the Police here but they are not taking the matter seriously. Please, I really need your financial assistance now because things are really getting tough on me here. 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 bills. Please, let me know if you can help us out?

I'll really appreciate your prompt response.

Charles

Ironically - I an sure that when these were originally transmitted all those years ago it was from the same person - Charles Davis - so he must be a REALLY unlucky guy. Rolling Eyes
