I have had an email purporting to be from someone many of us will know.
He claims to have had all his posessions stolen in Cyprus.
Please do not respond to this, especially requests for cash.

How selfish.
We are all friends on this forum and if a fellow member is in trouble then the least we can do is respond to calls for help.

By sheer coincidence I am due to fly out to Cyprus on Sunday so if you could send me the cash he has requested plus your bank details and pin number, I will ensure that he gets the help he has requested.

Mel,

The request could likely come from the perpetrators, not Tim. Beware yourself.

Thanks Alan. You have redeemed yourself.

I may be absent from this forum for some time.

Not that long Mel. There's nothing in there.

Alan/Mel

I'd like to help too. All my bank account & card details have gone to Mel by email. Mel, in case you leave without seeing these details, shall I just post them all here on the forum so you can pick them up at your convenience in Cyprus? (Might also assist you in extending your sojourn in view of the disappointing parsimony of this site's chief induna).

P.

You certainly know how to wound a chap. OK then, I'll raid my savings account.

I should think so, too! Just a shame it took more than 24 hours to do the decent thing. If Mel confirms receipt of the funds I won't bother to post all my pin numbers, etc., here.

No, the 1879 one - nice & easy to remember - but keep it under your hat. The other one must be an old one.
