Topic: HELP!!! (7 msgs / 135 lines)
1) From: Pat Murray
Hello,
       I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get to you too urgent
but it's because of the situation of things right now,i'm stuck in London UK
with family right now,we came down here on vacation ,we were robbed, worse
of it was that our bags, cash , credit cards and cell phone were stolen off
us at GUN POINT, it's such a crazy experience for us, we need help flying
back home, the authorities are not being 100% supportive but the good thing
is that we still have our passport but dont have enough money to get our
flight ticket back home, please i need you to loan me some money, i will
refund you as soon as i'm back home, i promise.
Pat

Huh? Are you serious? You emailed the homeroast list? Wouldn't you 
try family and friends first? And did they not reply... How many 
times have you emailed this list - once???
Folks - this is a scam.

Yes it is,
for all your folk out there, google is really your friend here! to  
track it down that it is scam.
ALWAYS in such weird requests, even if you know the person (they can  
send mail faking names) do a google search
like the one beflow. if you get many hits. Then drop teh mail and go  
on with your lifes..http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=%22+I'm+sorry+for+this+odd+request+because+it+might+get+to+you+too+urgent%22&ieF-8&oeF-8Ries

Heh, no need to do a Google search...look at the way it's worded. Anyone 
using the sentence "I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get 
to you too urgent" is not a primary English speaker.  "London UK....at 
GUN POINT", not impossible, but a pretty small possibility... ~4000 
firearms robberies in all of England and Wales.  Thirdly, no mention of 
where 'home' is, and finally, why would you drop this on a coffee 
mailing list?   Saw it, deleted it, went about my business.  Heh, but I 
guess the old adage that there is a sucker born every minute holds true.

Yes - I called Patrick because he is a real customer, and indeed his 
Gmail was taken over. Great idea though - just paste some of the 
email text into google and voila! We do that when suspicious 
addresses try to get on the mail list. Especially ones ending .ru !
