A friend of TheWife’s Hotmail account was hacked and the scam where you get an email from them suggesting they’re trapped in the UK was sent to me. Having just seen her yesterday, I’m pretty sure it was a scam but just to be sure, I replied:
I don’t have that kind of cash laying around at the moment but you could always try prostitution? I hear it pays well over there in the UK.
Good luck with that! Oh and remember to use protection!
I hear they sometimes respond.
