One of Rami’s email accounts has once again been hacked. The scammers are sending emails on behalf of Rami with a request for financial assistance.
Please do not reply to these letters. This is one of the most popular schemes/fraud on the Internet. Rami never asked for or collected donations for himself, no matter how difficult his circumstances were in life.
BELOW IS THE TEXT OF THE MESSAGE THE HACKERS ARE SENDING OUT ON BEHALF OF RAMI.
I’m sorry you’re getting the mail from me at this Point in time,my family and I came down here to Istanbul,Turkey 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
