Another Edition of John Spams the Spammer!

From: Wayne Gru Sent: Wednesday, June 09, 2010 6:10 AMSubject: Urgent help!!!!!

It is with deep sorrow and broken heart that am sending you this mail. Am in deep need and my situation is lamentable. my family and I decide to come visit Wales,United Kingdom for a short vacation. To our greatest dismay we were attacked and ripped apart at the park of the hotel where we were lodging,all cash,credit cards and mobiles were forcefully robbed off us at gun point but we still have our passports with us.

We've seek help at embassy and high commission,the Police too, unfortunately they have been unable to help or offer any reasonable support whatsoever. Our flight leaves in couple of hour from now but we are being held to ransom by the hotel management because we cannot settle the hotel bills. It is clear we would not be allowed to leave until pay the bill. Word cannot explain the anguish in my heart now. I am in need of immediate assistance.

Wayne, This IS lamentable. Plus you'll miss the Blackhawks game tonight! (Did you give your tickets to Tony or are they still in play? Game 5 the BHawks were back in true form. Tonight in Philly could be the last game. Can you believe that?!)

Best,John---------------------

Exactly. For sure. But you haven't said what I should do. And no mention of the Blackhawks tickets. I called Tony 5 minutes ago and woke him up. I think he's pissed. John

And Dude, the tickets. What about the tickets? Do you have any for game 7 or not?

Wayne, I just heard from John and am so upset. As you know, I don't have a lot of money but it kills me to think of you, my dear boy, trapped in a foreign country. Are you alright? What can I do to help? Also, what about the souvenirs you promised? Were they stolen too? I'm praying for you.

Love, Mom
