Dear Shipmates,

 

 

THIS IS A SCAM ALERT

 

 John Loonam's mailbox on Yahoo has been hacked and somebody pretending to be John is asking for money. The e-mail I received reads:

 

I really hope you get this fast. I could not inform anyone about my trip, because it was impromptu. I had to be in Manila, Philippines for a program. The program was successful, but my journey has turned sour. I misplaced my wallet and cell phone on my way back to the hotel i lodge in after i went for sight seeing. The wallet contained all the valuables things i have. Now, my passport is in custody of the hotel management pending when i make payment.

 
I am sorry if i am inconveniencing you, but i have only very few people to run to now. i will be indeed very grateful if i can get a loan of $2,450 from you. this will enable me sort our hotel bills and get my sorry self back home. I will really appreciate whatever you can afford in assisting me with. I promise to refund it in full as soon as I return. let me know if you can be of any assistance. Please, let me know soonest. Thanks so much..

 

John

 

DO NOT respond to this. John and Yahoo have been notified. Hopefully, this has been nipped in the bud.
