I am terribly sorry to bother you with this mail, I am currently in the UK i had to attend an unexpected program here, I'm presently in London and am having some problems. I was mugged on my way to the hotel coming from the session i was attending and there by loosing my funds and valuables. Presently my passport and my things are being held down by the hotel management pending when i make payment. I will like you to assist me with a loan of $3,325 to sort-out my hotel bills and to get myself back home. I will appreciate whatever you can afford to assist me with, I'll refund the money as soon as i return, let me know if you can be of any help ?. I can receive through a western union or money gram nearest to me. My address details are:

Looks like Las Vegas origin of the scam. Which means either they use a San Antonio, TX Rackspace.com ISP (which does list two London data centers) from the UK...unlikely, or it is a hoax -- there is no one to pickup the money n the UK end, or it is a two person setup --- one to send the email and the other to pick up the cash.
