EMAIL FROM COUDERSPORT DENTIST IS SCAM

E-MAIL IS A SCAM!!
Everyone on Coudersport Dentist Pete Ryan's mailing list received this email supposedly from Pete Ryan asking to have money sent to assist him.


WE HAVE TALKED TO DR. PETE RYAN AND THIS IS A SCAM!!

Dr. Ryan is not in Scotland. His email account has been hacked and these crooks have sent the message below to everyone on his email list.

Hello,


How are you doing! I hope you are fine? I'm sorry i didn't inform you about my trip to for a program, I'm presently in Scotland and got mugged at a gun point by some armed robbers on my way to the hotel where my money and other valuable things were kept including my passport. I would like you to assist me with a loan of 1400Pounds to sort-out my hotel bills and get myself back home.

I have spoken to the embassy here but they are not responding to the matter effectively,I will appreciate whatever you can afford to assist me with,I'll Refund the money back to you as soon as i return, let me know if you can be of any help. I don't have a phone where i can be reached.

Please let me know immediately.
Regards

Pete

PLEASE DO NOT BE TAKEN IN BY THIS SCAM!!

I would hope that no one would have really believed this. The grammar in this e-mail is a clear give away that it was not sent by someone who has English as a first language.

Pete;
Your call for help pop up on my screen yesterday and I did notice the wording was a little off, but I felt maybe you were settling your nerves and was participating in some of that Scottish Brew.
I got on the phone to some of your friends to see if they didn’t wanted to help you out.
No way did they all say!
Some even said you could just walk home.
I’d heard a rumor out there that you could walk on water and didn’t need boots to fish.
Guess it was correct!!!

Oh my gosh, I got that same mail from someone a year ago... I wondered why she kept sending me notes like that.

I think this has gone on for some time.

I hope they get reported to the feds.

My husband had the same thing happen to him, his Yahoo email has just been hacked into and someone is sending out an email asking for money and that he is stuck in London! We cant even log into it to let people know. If anyone gets and email from Franklin Furman asking for money, its not real. Please distregard it!
