“Empowering Youth to Fight Racism, HIV/Aids, Poverty and Lack of Education". Then the person - whose e-mail account has been hacked - is portrayed as being stranded in Africa after forgetting in a taxi a "little bag”

His wife Yolanda fielded off telephone calls to their Goa home, explaining that nothing of this sort had happened. via The Peninsula

This is for an email account in New Zealand, so the comment about the trip to Spain was a major tip-off. If anyone hits "reply", it goes to a similar email address & my guess is that's when your email accounts get screwed up.

Hope you get this on time? I had a trip to Spain yesterday, and am facing some problems here, needing help. Please let me know if you can help me.

I will be waiting for your reply.

Hope to hear from you.

Cheers

P.S. I don't have a phone where i can be reached. I am so confused right now. please let me know immediately
