How are you doing today? I'm sorry i didn't inform you about my traveling to Africa for a program called "Empowering Youth to Fight Racism, HIV/AIDS, Poverty and Lack of Education, The program is taking place in three major countries in Africa which is Ghana, South Africa and Nigeria. It as been a very sad and bad moment for me, the present condition that i found myself is very hard for me to explain.
I am really stranded in Nigeria because I forgot my little bag in the Taxi where my money, passport, documents and other valuable things were kept on my way to the Hotel I'm staying, I'm facing a hard time here because I have no money on me. I am now owning a hotel bill of 750.00 pounds and they wanted me to pay the bill soon else they will have to seize my bag and hand me over to the Hotel Management, I need this help from you urgently to help me back home, I need you to help me with the hotel bill and I will also need 250.00 pounds to feed and help myself back home, So please can you help me with a sum of 1000.00 pounds to sort out my problems here? I need this help so much and on time because I'm in a terrible and tight situation here, I don't even have money to feed myself for a day which means I had been starving so please understand how urgent I need your help.
I'm sending you this e-mail from the city Library and I only have 30 min, I will appreciate what so ever you can afford to send me for now and I promise to pay back your money as soon as I return home,Please let me know on time so that I can forward you the details you need to transfer the money through Money Gram or Western Union.
Hope to hear from you.
Thank you for reading.
