I am sorry for reaching you rather too late due to the situation of things right now.My family and I had a trip visiting Istanbul (Turkey) everything was going on fine until last night when we got attacked by some unknown gunmen. All our money,phones and credit cards was stolen away including some valuable items, It was a terrible experience but the good thing is that they didn't hurt anyone.

We have reported the incident to the local authorities and the consulate but their response was too casual, we were ask to come back in 2 weeks time for investigations to be made proper,But the truth is we can't wait till then as we have just got our return flight booked and is leaving in few hours from now but presently having problems sorting out our bills here and also getting a cab down to the airport, Right now we're financially strapped due to the unexpected robbery attack, Wondering if you can help us with a quick loan to sort out our bills and get back home. All we need is (2,900$) I promise to refund you in full as soon as I return home hopefully tomorrow or next. write back now to let me know what you can do.

Best Regards,

Frances

Seems legit to me.

Its weird to read. These people assume that just anyone in North America has $3000 at their finger tips?

And that is really the best english they can come up with?

How could any one fall for that?

you don't? I mean 3k is enough where I have to raid the wallet and the sock drawer, but I still have the cubby hole, the mattress, and the jar buried out back, which is the bulk of my savings.
