Fun with email scammers....

With the world banking system facing oblivion and areas of London smouldering post riot I thought I would share this with you as a humorous Monday morning distraction........

Thanks for your email

I can send you the money but I have a small problem

During my stay I lost my wallet and I'm certain it was one of your cleaners who took it

Her name was Marianne

We had a good time together then she took my wallet

If you could help me with this matter I will be very happy to see that you receive the money

I guess it was a legit one as I found this plan from one site called ptbad (an architect agency)-www[dot]ptbad[dot]com/seychelles/MEINHARDT%20STRUCTURE%20DWG/34-(12.03.11)%20STR/REPORT%20Savoy%20Resort%20and%20Spa%20-120311[dot]pdf
Since you have removed the post from your blog I guess you are already aware of this.
Wanted to Share, just in case
