A Scam Email with the Subject "Hi" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 31 May 2015 17:30:16 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was Arun Stphen <>, although it may have been spoofed.

 I really hope this gets to you in time, I was robbed during my trip to Swansea, Wales. All my belongings including mobile phone and credit card were all stolen. I asked my bank to cancel my cards and place hold on my account to avoid unauthorized access. I need your help flying back home.

Am cash strapped at the moment. I've made contact with my bank but the best they could do was to send me a new card in the mail which will take 3-5 working days to arrive here. I need you to lend me some money to sort my self out of this predicament, i will pay back once i make it out of UK.

Western union is the fastest option to wire funds to me, let me know if you can help me with the funds i need so that i can send you the details you will need when sending the funds. You can reach me via email or hotel desk phone, the numbers are, +447024029894 or +447020430611.

I await your response....
