Hi, Its me James ,  I really don't mean to inconvenience you right now, I made a little trip to UK 
and I misplaced my passport and credit cards, please I know this may sound odd, but it all happened 
very fast. I need to get a new passport, and get on the next available flight home. I've been to 
the US embassy, they're willing to help, but I'm out of cash and I have minimum access from here. 
Can you loan me some money and I'll be willing to repay you as soon as I get home. Please reply as 
soon as you get this message, so I can forward the details as to where to send the funds, i can not 
make calls over here,i will use a black berry phone  to access my email. I also have an ID to pick 
the funds up if sent via western union
i will be waiting for responses
