    Hi All,

    Just had a warning from a very trustworthy source over in the Phils that there are emails coming from Kevin's dad's account 'Gerald Taylor' that suggest that he is in Manila, he is NOT he is in the UK and is awaiting eye surgery.

    Gerald is aware that his account has been hacked and will no doubt try to get it fixed as soon as possible but please beware any messages coming from that source at this time.

    They really don't need this kind of thing happening at this time but sadly it has.

    Thanks OSS..

    Just recieved this to my email account..


    Hello,

    I really hope you get this fast. I could not inform everyone about my trip to Manila,Philippines for a program because it was impromptu. The program was successful, but my journey has turned sour I was mugged at gun point and all my valuables were stolen, phone credit card was also taken,I've been to the Embassy and the Police here but the are not help and I also talked to my bank but the best they can do is to mail a new card which will take 5 to 7 days to get here. All I need right now is £2,000.00 to sort hotel bill and get a cab to the airport because my flight leaves in few hours from now, I'll appreciate what you can give if not all and I promise to make the refund once I get back home.

    You can wire money to my name from a western union outlet around www.locations. Please let me know if you can help.

    Gerald.

    How low can some people go?
    Ive never really physically hurt anybody in my life..I could very easily make an exception when it comes to stuff like this.

    I think Gerald downloaded some malware and it took his passwords from a keylogger.

    The process might be automated but at the end of the chain is someone controlling these bots. further to that they have harvested email contacts as well and built enough of a picture to attempt to concoct a believable story, apart from the slightly poor English.

    Having an e-mail account is worrying enough but also having your identity stolen, presumably by creating fake documents to convince WU, is more worrying.
