This is how this scam works:
  1. The scammer hacks into someones email account and changes the password and security questions/answers so that the victim cannot easily regain control of the account. Forwarding addresses may be set up.
  2. A sad tale of being mugged in some foreign place is sent to everyone in the address book of the victim.
  3. The address book is usually deleted along with all stored emails so that the victim, when s/he regains control of the account, cannot contact anyone to warn them.
  4. Concerned friends and relatives who reply are asked to wire money.
  5. Kiss the money goodbye.
Don't fall for it! And keep your passwords strong and secure.
I'm writing with tears in my eyes,my family and I came down here to Madrid Spain, for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel we stayed,all cash credit cards and cell were stolen off but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.

I have been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves pretty soon from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills.Please be so kind to reply back so I can tell you what to do and how to get some cash to us.

I'm freaked out at the moment
